    120 finals prayer

    Well within your scenario, the referee would hit them both with stalling as the rules would dictate. If it were a second stalking call for one or both of them, it would be a point. Furthermore as I have described I spent more years in Muslim majority countries than probably you have and most of the readers. Worked side by side with many as interpreters. Have had many discussions back and forth. I won't claim to be an expert, but there must be a verse that allows them miss and make up the prayer. So I would guess they would probably continue the match, and then head straight to a clear direction facing the mecca. If a prayer is missed, it is common practice among Muslims to make it up as soon as it is remembered or as soon as they are able to do so. This is known as Qadaa. For example, if one misses the noon prayer because of a work meeting that could not be interrupted, one should pray as soon as the meeting is over. I hope that I have enlightened you on the religion that you bring up.

    Not good KHSAA

    I was being completely sarcastic. Just imagine hearing two coaches and a referee mic'd up for the entire venue to hear on a loud speaker. Half agreeing with one and half the other. It would be a mess.

    120 finals prayer

    To those that want to be negative, I can attest that both of their hearts were pure and it was not Grandstanding. Check your own heart before judging others. As for Breyden, last year when he lost in the finals he walked off the mat to a hallway. Asked me to pray with him. Thanked God for the opportunity and ability to wrestle for him. As I had tears in my eyes, some feeling his loss for him and some for the good man that he is, he looked at me and said if you need a minute to gain your composure, take your time, I am heading up to be with my team and get ready for awards. When TJ beat him earlier this year, he took a moment and prayed on the mat. Win or lose, that is the heart and faith he has shown. Not disrespectful, not for you or others to give him accolades or try to tear him down. There is enough wrong in the world we live in right now, if you don't agree with him, close your eyes, turn around, or simply clear your own hate and don't judge him or others. For those saying what if another religion, I was in charge of the night shift of the largest terrorist prison in Afghanistan. I woke up everyday and said regardless of how these in prison act today, I will treat them with dignity and respect. Many humbling stories I could share. Although I fall short sometimes, that is how I try to act with everyone. Would be a greater place if we all tried the same. With that being said, as he practiced his freedom of religion, you all have the right to freedom of speech. You also have the freedom of choice and could choose to not be negative about everything in life. Congratulations to all that met their goals, keep grinding for those that fell short, and God Bless to all! JW

    Not good KHSAA

    Video replay with the official and both coaches have to agree. All 3 mic'd up during the discussion as they are watching the replay. That would be a classic way to handle all questionable calls and allow the fans saying what are they discussing to enjoy the moment. The moral and ethical compass would be put in check by everyone.

    Where Was The Podium?

    My prayers, hopes, and dreams are for the KHSAA to be transparent and say we want a check for X amount following the state tournament for wrestling. Assign a committee to handle all aspects of post season, venue selection, acquire mats, acquire scoreboards, acquire awards, acquire tableworkers, set up and tear down. They just provide support, oversight, as needed. We, the coaches do all the labor, lifting, and execution. They get their money and the kids get a great tournament that exceeds their expectations. They would take not heat rounds or negative feedback, no stress to them and they still have the money at the end. Why is this not an option? How would this hinder them? Why can't this be the way forward? No offense to them, but to be an authority over something, you should have the knowledge and experience to know what and why you are making the decisions you are making. So allow those with the knowledge and experience to handle those aspects.

    Haha. They sat next to each other in chairs before they went to get awards, closer than standing on a podium. This is classic and you can't make this up!

    State Tournament Hope

    The problem with that is too many of the kids that should be at the state tournament are left at home with much weaker competition at the state tournament. Look at results from who made it through. Under your theory, regions 1 and 2 combined, 3 and 4 combined, etc, etc. Now look at results where 1 and 2 got 5 or 6 of the 8 through at true semi and vice versa. There are kids at the state tournament this year that deserve to be there that would not have been under your 4 region alignment. Trying to do right by the competitors! A long day for some fans is worth it for the competitors, is it not?

    Weight class survey

    Was not required by the NFHS to vote on this yet. They just had a board meeting and voted on weight classes for 3 seasons from now, but don't have information on if going back to normal post season, or top 2 from quad states, or top 4, or location. That was low hanging fruit and easy. Working with coaches association to get back to what the wrestling community wants for a post season is being dodged and neglected. But glad they chose 14!
