  1. Hey guys, I know our state tournament is here, but there's an elite national event happening simultaneously. Like NCAAs, wrestlers must qualify for the Olympic Team Trials (OTT), and reaching this weekend is their final shot to do so. FloWrestling is showing both days live. Copied below are mostly NCAA champs/AAs, and others I recognized.

  2. Hey guys, I've recently moved into a new house and created a workout room, complete with a 17x17 mat and wall padding. I'm going to put in a takedown machine to get myself as realistic solo workout as possible, and plan on mixing in various strikes, MMA style. I used Adam in my college room and think it would be better for punching because it's thicker, but am not sure if it's worth the $1300 more than the S&S, which I've never seen in person. Has anyone used both, and have any thoughts in contrasting the two?

    FS/GR instruction

    I recommend the Carr Wrestling Academy. They mostly do folkstyle because that's what the clientele prefers, but they are open to FS and GR if there is enough interest. I know my son will be getting some private lessons soon if we have to.

    Takeaways from state

    I wonder if Deck would have wrestled his regional finals match if the state tournament was seeded?
  5. Some years a master schedule is a pinned topic on here, most years not, but I have always found them useful. Can we get one going for this year? When and where are teams competing this year?

    State finals location

    I like the idea of EKU's Alumni Coliseum. It's centrally located with lots of parking, but the capacity is only 6,500. How many people normally attend the state tournament?

    State finals location

    Move it back a week and change to Freedom Hall. It's a little smaller than Alltech Arena overall but I'd bet seats about the same.

    ‘JV region rule’

    I'm not sure but think the logic has centered around the idea that middle-schoolers have their own state tournament, and many think the JV state tournaments should be reserved for high schoolers who are working hard, and just can't crack the lineup or aren't competitive statewide yet.

    Missing wrestlers (from lineups)

    Heard Cauy Wallace is not going to wrestle this year, but could be wrong.
  11. https://www.thepredicament.com/2018/03/chris-bono-named-wisconsin-wrestling-head-coach/ We all knew that Ruschell getting the job would be a long shot, but this was quicker than I thought. That being said, I do think Bono is a good choice. He has the big name, been around enough to give him connections everywhere, and proven himself by putting relatively obscure SDSU on the map. Let's hope Bono is smart enough to keep Kyle on staff, assuming he wants to stay. If not though, Ruschell has certainly proven himself and I'm sure will be snapped up by someone quickly. I can see him as the head coach of a smaller SDSU-type/non-DI school, or an assistant at another top-20 program. The future is bright for our unofficial ambassador of KY wrestling!

    AllStar Classic HWT bout

    Did they wrestle in high school, or was Reed a heavyweight?

    Big 10 Predictions

    I don't know anything about McKenna, but disagree... unless Stanford offers a specific program that Ohio St doesn't, which isn't likely considering Ohio St is the 3rd largest university in the country (I realize Stanford is better academically) then the kid should follow his heart since his athletic window is very limited. He can always go to grad school at Stanford, possibly as a grad assistant and get it paid for too if he's good enough (assuming they have a position).
