Season Starts!!!

Recommended Posts

Is there a possibility to add a sectional tournament in between region and state, so to have a smaller state tourney? (16 man brackets)   Would be like the good ole days of district, region, state.

It's a "growth" allowance.  We should start the season with the allowance.  The wrestlers didn't stop growing just because the season hadn't started yet.

Barren told me the 2lb allowance will be there after Christmas like normal.  So we will have it all season

Talking to Barren, all things are on the table right now. I mentioned the same thing to him, adding districts.  Based on venue and restrictions,  they will be looking at how many they can have at state

They need to do something.    The regions were out of whack before this season, and already needed to be realigned.  They added four teams to region 2, so now 2 and 7 both have something like 20 active teams.  They should go ahead and realign the regions, then bring back the districts, permanently.  Wasn't this the year for possible realignment anyway?

Realignment is coming next year 100% is what I was told.

How would you like to see districts returned?

1 Break up the regions we have into 2 districts and still have a 32 man state tourney.

2. Keep the regions we have now and combine two regions into a district tourney and return to a 16 man state tourney.

Definitely Option 2. There’s no way you could divide up region 4 or region 3 into districts. They’re small enough as is now. I would love to see 16 man state brackets because you could possibly run the tournament on Friday night and Saturday like Indiana does.

After the realignment next year, I have a feeling that 3 and 4 will be getting much bigger.

While I like 16 man state better, I dont see Khsaa giving up the money the 32 man brings on. Unless...... you split into 2 divisions(big and small) with two 16 man tournaments (plus sanction girls and do 8). This would also help region size as well and I believe it will help growth of teams. I know others disagree, but thats just my 2 cents.

Might as well give union the title every year if it breaks down into small/large schools.

Big School/Small School would be a good way to handle the growth that is happening. I know lots of people don’t like it but there is good and bad with anything we do. This would also go in line with State Duals. Regardless of what is to come change is sure to happen.

For now maybe and maybe for a long time,  but things could change. You cant let that keep change coming if it would help wrestling as a whole. There's more dominant teams in other sports but they still play the games, look at assumption in volleyball or st x in swimming.  Just because 1 team is good, doesnt mean you cant do things to improve.

As if Union doesn’t already win the title every year 

 

edit- but to add I already coached in Div 1 Ohio meaning you had to accept that St. Ed’s was probably winning the title or be in Div 2 and know that Graham is going to win the title. Really just makes constant growth the goal see Aurora now

Because I also believe the KHSAA will be reluctant to give up the $ from the 32 man bracket I probably say scenario 1. Realignment would be needed, but I would much prefer that over a large/small division. Back in the old days we had some great district rivalries and a lot of varied teams winning trophies.
