Re: Last Man Standing aka Last Chance Qualifier

Just curious bearhugger when was the last time wv had a bye at the state tournament and how many years in a row has it been.i didn't know this was a ongoing problem and not a new one. I do happen to see that the 2016 tournament had 38 teams and than 2017 only had 29. I think regionals is a good plac...

Re: Rea Defeats Teasedale

That article is just making excuses for Teasdale. They both have been at 132 all year except when he ran at Powerade down to 126. It sounds a lot better him giving up 2 weight classes to face a ranked guy than him losing to a unranked wv kid. . . That being said that is a awesome win and hopefully h...

Re: Flowrestling screwed up a good thing

no to all three. i think you should be praising btn for broadcasting it because if flo had their way they wouldve been broadcasting it themselves.

Re: AAA region comparison

Dunbar very good points about tournament toughness effect on team scores. I've seen south get beat by teams at the ironman that only brought 2/3 wrestlers. With the small numbers in wv tho it's hard to justify being more than one individual and definitely shouldn't go to 3 division. I think getting ...

Re: AAA region comparison

guard that is true. the old region 1 was tough and still very tough as they have 3 of the top 10 schools right now and 2 in the top 5. and the region they are in now has some very tough teams. i wasn't trying to talk down the other teams in their regions. thats why you will see 4 seeds from those re...

Re: AAA region comparison

also 9 out of the 20 for the parkersburgs squads are top ranked so on paper they make a huge difference to how numbers look. if added to the weakest region region 2 would have 10 1st, 7 2nd, 2 3rd, 2 4th, 5 5th, 3 6th. on paper and in general anyone that has to deal with phs/south is going to compla...

Re: AAA region comparison

looking at the numbers if phs/south are in the same region that region becomes the toughest by the numbers. with them combined for 20 ranked wrestlers they alone out due regions 1,2,3 leaving 25 left in region 4. if you put them in region 2 they now have 29 and look like a powerhouse region by the n...

Re: Dutton Questions

2012 was a tough year to win. 4x champs David Jeffrey, Adam bicak, and Dylan cottrell, 3x champs Elijah hull, Tory Bennett. All of which had all-American honors. That year was a tough one for them to choose a winner but I think the right guy got it. history shows the dutton is a senior award and idk...

Re: Dutton Questions

there is a committee that votes on it if I'm not mistaken. setting the win total is amazing but i don't think that will be enough to overtake 2x powerade champ ironman/super 32 placer and most likely 4x state champ that has dominated wv wrestling.

Re: Skin issues

thats why the host of the tournament should have a physician be on site for weigh ins. if no physician is on site you can't do anything about it if they have a skin form.

Re: Favorite Venue to watch wrestling in WV?

Wesbanco capacity is 5500 and big sandy is 5600 so no real difference except all of wesbancos seats are nice seats to watch from. Huntington is nicer in you can walk to several hotels and plenty of restaurants close to big sandy. I don't know if wesbanco has very many options that aren't driving dis...

Re: EF vs EF

Bearhugger I would tell the kid from independence that he needs to work harder to be able to beat the kids ahead of him. The same way I tell my varsity kids to keep working harder to beat other kids we will see at States. So to answer your question I don't think the kid has worked hard enough to mak...

Re: Powerade Wrestling Tournament 2017

152 is a pretty even weight class in top 15. Ruffin from ga beat artalona Florida who finished 2 at ironman and in the finals beat balmeceda who won super 32. Humphrey beat Ruffin and than lost to balmeceda at super 32.

Re: South

South should end up 3-5 depending on how well they wrestle. If south would've had their full team at ironman they would've placed 8-9. Lhp and Wyoming seminary are the only teams I see that have to much firepower for south to beat.

I would say he's a first. Flo starting when I was in high school. I got to watch Adams at nhsca and I was very impressed with his diversity as a wrestler on his feet and on the mat. Will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Re: 12/2-12/3 Tournament

Reference is to the 2 defending team champs that will still be loaded next year. Would help draw more attention to wv coaches if you said what teams are going and any creditials for those teams.
