Re: Coach of the year

Although its not a popular view when it comes time to vote I have always thought the "Coach of the Year" is the coach who does the most with the least by developing the talent on hand. So that coach might be from anywhere on the list of team scoring at the state meet. If said coach had let...

Re: Teacher's Strike VS State Tournament

At the rally the Union leader remarked That Coaches would be allowed to Coach games and hold Practices without any trouble from the Union if they wanted too, cause they didn't want to harm the players by having their seasons end.

Re: Teachers strike

Those 2 days were not chosen because of the state wrestling tournament, they were chosen to give the legislature some time to see what they can come up with.

Re: AAA Pill Drawings - Pre-Regional

In reality Rodney you have 4 brackets with all 4 region champions as 1 seeds in each of the 4 brackets. The pill seeds all 4 champions equally and if all 4 hold seed they will meet in the semis. The part people don't like is that in actuality the 2 best wrestlers might be from the same region and me...

Whats more when you look at region 2 and 3 combined there are 35 wrestlers who will qualify automatically because of 4 or less in their brackets. In region 4 in several weights there will be a wrestler(who won't qualify) who would be a state placer in the 2 region 8 qualifiers format. I just don't s...

Re: AAA region comparison

So if South and PHS were in region 1 in the past and region 4 now, why not send them to different regions? The distance would be about the same either way. Put South in region 1 with where they probably belong anyway along with their OVAC conference mates and PHS in region 4 along with the MSAC conf...

Re: Why not two Regionals?

So coach112, attempts to fix imbalances = "giving everyone a participation trophy"? Would you agree there are imbalances in the regions? If your answer is no then we have nothing to discuss. At what point does it become ok to fix the imbalances so we aren't giving out participation trophies?

Re: Why not two Regionals?

Its kind of crazy how we name a class A champion when a class A team in a tough AA/A region might not qualify good wrestlers and another class A team in a weak AA/A region might qualify most of their team. How can anyone hope to crown a true team class A champion that way.

Re: Why not two Regionals?

I have suggested it for the last couple of years. Some just say no it wouldn't work but don't really give me a reason why not. It would work great for the imbalance in AAA regions but wouldn't work with AA/A as it is configured now. Maybe AA/A could be divided with a smaller tourney for the A divisi...

Re: 2 things out of whack

While not perfect the plan below would be better than what we have now for AAA IMHO AA/A would have to have something different because of already huge numbers in regions. Separate AA & A maybe? . Combine 1 & 2 for a northeast region and 3 & 4 for a southwest region. Both regions qualify...

The most everything (loud, crowded, hot, intense etc) sporting event I ever attended in WV was the 1977 WV championship tournament at PHS Memorial Fieldhouse. It ended with 4 teams separated by 3 1/2 points at the top of the team standings. I am partial to the Fieldhouse but the Wheeling civic cente...
