Re: 4 Byes in AAA

I've not read this thread but I am curious if anyone thought about non-scoring pigtails with fifth and fourth place regional placers, one and done. Sort of like the NCAA Basketball Tournament having 68 teams instead of 64. Just a thought. This thread pointed out that some ideas keep getting discuss...

Re: 4 Byes in AAA

Frank is buying everyone dinner. Be there or be square. I wonder if we could do a survey of some kind of people as they come into the arena to gauge willingness to attend with a sign up sheet and a time and place on it. We would need several people willing to conduct the initial survey. But Frank b...

Re: Coach of the year

I don't know if the original post was brought up just to create some nasty discussion or with the hope that some negative comments would be expressed.

FYI. ---. I'm NOT the Head Coach of any program. You have no idea about coaching I can see that. To think a team like South or Indy can win titles without a good coach is not an intelligent quote.

Re: 9th graders that will be a force next year??

9th grader Gavin Quiocho is a force this year. Incredible athleticism, strength and intuition. He is at the top of this list in my opinion. The interesting thing is that he started out the year in the preseason wrestling at 145 lbs behind Martin at 132 and Shamblin at 138. It was really neat seeing...

Re: 2X as likely to qualify in AAA v AA/A?

You can’t ignore the qualifiers. That’s what determines how easy or difficult it is to qualify. If you can’t beat one or two of them you are not qualifying. It is irrelevant how you fair against the non-qualifiers. I don't really see the point to debate this, but it seems to me the initial point be...

KDunbar, your percentage for the pill on putting the best two wrestlers on the same side of the bracket are a little off. There is a 33% chance of the two best wrestlers being on the same side of the bracket if they are in different regions. If the two best wrestlers are in the same region, they ar...

Re: LCQ Example - Woodrow Wilson 285lbs

My case is to give the best the chance to qualify for the state tournament. Kicking tail and qualifying is not getting a participation trophy. It is entering competition and earning what you get. If a non-scoring wrestler(team points) beats out a scoring wrestler, then tough. The scoring wrestler w...
