Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

I’m surprised that so many are ok with our state having hundreds of vacancies. The teachers are fighting for these kids. I appreciate they see that until the system is fixed, you can expect the best to leave for a chance to make some money. It’s sad so many are worried about little things that aren...

Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

I've just changed my hotel reservations for states to July 12th and 13th. This will avoid the teacher's (strike, demonstration, walk out or work stoppage).

You can type that it is a strike 100 times...and I’ll correct you 100 times. Teddy Bear...you know this isn’t a strike. As does everyone else in state. Need your stirring rod? What is it then?

Might we be getting a tad carried away ? Not sure that comparing this situation , ( which has yet to come to fruition), to a geopolitical decision involving the Olympics is an appropriate analogy. Lol. And is it truly the wrestler’s “right” to compete in a High School wrestling tournament? I, of co...

Hopefully you are correct. All media reports have made it sound like it’s up to each county whether wrestlers get to participate.

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

I am sure that will do wonders for the middle school wrestling programs. I'm not saying all the middle school kids but the ones who are talented enough to start should have the choice. But that is not the way it would work. Every parent who dislikes the middle school coach and thinks their Little J...

Some of these kids, are kids of these teachers, that are trying to secure health care coverage for their kids. For some it is bigger than being a fan.

Re: Teachers strike

My entire immediate family has PEIA. My wife has a state job and my daughter and her husband teach. One issue is the cost of insurance, but another biggie is their pay. The one offered was not going to cover the cost increase in insurance premium and actually put teachers further in debt. Being 50t...

Re: Teachers strike

If you have the family plan, I don’t think PEIA charges more for a larger family. Going from three to one child probably wouldn’t lower the cost for a family plan. Just going off what I recall.

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...

These old eyes are not the best, but by my count 81 wrestlers competed in the Region I AAA tournament while 160 wrestlers competed in the Region I AA/A brackets.

While the odds of a randomly selected wrestler qualifying in AA are significantly less than a randomly selected wrestler qualifying in AAA, that does not necessarily mean its easier to qualify for the state tournament in AAA.

It is ambitious to predict your team will have more state champions than it had regional champions. Though, most of them have as good a chance at winning their weight class as anyone else does...so its possible.

Re: Rankings are posted

This late in the season, a straight head to head match may not be the only factor considered. Other common opponent wins/losses could impact the ranking if there is a notable distinction in the results between two wrestlers vs. the same opponents.
