    I was not comparing overall accomplishments I was just comparing this statement only. I believe that SAM is one of the greatest I have seen.

    Also for the record it was not me. I am a never was. Just a good wrestler but not a great one. Only placed 3 times but not a finalist. I don't hold a candle to SAM or ATM. I only wrestled 4 years back in the stone age. And not ashamed to admit it.

    I'm not judging. I just wanted to put some facts out there. He did not win fast pin, You have to try to get that, but had 4 pins but not as fast as the 5:00 and some seconds to the winner. But he was a close second. For the record SAMs pins were in 7:00 and some seconds. Hard to compare generations. The next generation will be better than this one and so on and so on. Just basing it on the accomplishment of the time. Kind of like asking if Hank Aaron is better than Babe Ruth and Barry Bonds better than Aaron.

    CC had another 160 pin all opponents in the 1st period District, Region, and state. Equally as impressive.

    C'mon guys give him a break he IS getting OLDER. And you know old people don't move very fast and their minds slip a little.

    State finals location

    Geographically would put you somewhere near E-town. So I would say Lou, Lex, Elizabethtown, and Richmod would all be good locations centrally.

    I don't like any of those destinations either.

    It's only what your use to. I feel the same way on 75 going through Lexington.

    It's only bad crossing the river into the buckeye state. 275 is where you do most of your traveling to get to NKU. But NKU is not a good site because of geography, it is no where near centrally located, western Ky would have to travel way to far.

    Best Match @ State

    How is this any different than a cut-back?? The defensive wrestler cannot protect himself from the fall.

    It would only be illegal if he went backwards with it. If he rolled forward then it is legal. We were to far away and it happened to fast for us to tell which direction he went. Going backwards would be considered a "cut-back". rolling forward would be considered a tilt or roll.

    I think one point everyone is missing here is that Ky already has a critical problem with the number of officials they have. The 1st thing Ky needs to do is build up the pool of officials out there. Then you can mandate meetings, tests, and observations or whatever you want to improve their level. If you require to much or make it to inconvenient then we will have even less officials. I look around and I see several teams that seem to have 7-9 coaches, most of them very young. Coaches need to encourage their ex-wrestlers to try officiating. Lets build up our pool 1st, I will guarantee this. No one who is officiating wants to do a bad job, they all want to do the best they can. Careful criticism by coaches to officials after an event when all has died down goes a long way. Coaches can take 3-5 minutes to talk to the official after a dual and discuss some calls with no judgment.

    State finals location

    The geographic center of Kentucky, according to old Kentucky Transportation Cabinet road maps, is in Marion county about three miles northwest of Lebanon on KY 429. Campbellsville in Taylor county also claims to be the geographic center of the state and there is a marker on the campus of Campbellsville University. The population center is Boyle County.

    It has not happened at Altech. When we moved from Atherton to the Dungeon, the Dungeon was slightly larger and we did not fill the stands eventually we filled the stands and the atmosphere was awesome. Moving from the Dungeon to Altech we have not come close to filling the stands and the atmosphere is much worse. I like the idea of a larger (larger than the Dungeon) venue but not one where we are not close to filling. Moving from a facility that holds 6,000 (which we don't come close to filling) to an arena with 22,000 (Yum) or 23,000 (Rupp) is insane.
