1 pointHere are my top 9 for state of TN wrestling teams. Baylor-1st tier Christian Brothers-1st tier Cleveland-1st tier Father Ryan- 2nd McCallie- 2nd Wilson Central - 3rd Blackman jumbled mess, lost to wilson central but finished higher at Black Horse compared to Arlington since OW likes to use individual tourneys Arlington- beaten badly by McCallie, Christian Brothers and Baylor, as well as lost to Father Ryan. beat Bradley Bradley- lost to Cleveland, Arlington and McCallie but beat Summit 64-9 Honorable mentions: A Jumbled mess of nothingness. The reason these are so hard: Blackman- beat Beech Centennial and Summit, lost to WC Centennial: Beat Summit and Oakland, but later lost to Oakland and Blackman Summit: lost to McCallie, Bradley, Oakland, Blackman and Centennial. Beat Whitwell by same margin as Soddy. Rossview- lost to MBA and Clarksville and also Beech and Wilson Central, did beat Oakland though Heritage beat Science Hill but lost to Notre Dame Brentwood- beat MBA who Rossview lost too, but lost to Summit. Beech- lost to blackman, oakland and Riverdale
1 pointI understand boys not wanting to wrestle the girls, I wrestled 3 of them during my 4 years in school. I just wanted to get some match time in and truthfully cared less most of the time who was against me and that's how it should be now(especially JV wrestling). Girls should wrestle exhibition matches against the boys(especially to get mat time for JV boys) and allow them to get more matches compared to the small amount they get now days. I mean i looked at the regions last year there were 32 teams in the East with 84 girls total and West had 35 teams with 88 girls total. Its hard to get matches for them and not have to wrestle the same girls over and over if something else isn't done and the growth will be minimal if they continue having to wrestle the same people over and over again and it also hurts their growth in becoming a better wrestler.
1 pointHave you contacted coaches in other parts of the state to see what they are doing? Maybe you can get together and do a couple events during the season. Maybe you call them something like super regional tournaments. Nice team trophies and medals for the girls. Make sure every girl gets her 5 matches in regardless whether she's winning or losing. Maybe you talk the coaches with big rosters into hosting. Mandatory your jv boys who aren't competing to work tables. Be creative. Figure it out.
1 pointUpdate on webcast time, will start at 3 pm, can be seen at http://watchthegamelive.com/
1 pointGreat win over Kolton, any idea how bad it was? Jones should be 3rd at best in the rankings. Austin should win it and Brooks is prob second and after that Jones prob slides in after.
1 pointI agree. But surely they could fill out out with better teams than Hixson, Cohulla and Sequoyah. That girls team they had out of WV was really good though and they were led by a couple of DI players.
1 pointyes the newspaper says championship will be friday for that tournament trying to build it back up for the dumb mistakes these 2 coaches made.also this is not fair to the other teams or all the cleveland bradley fans. i think this hurts cleveland and bradleys tournament draws in the future until everyone forgets.i think that the only thing that will help now is for them to do what u suggested,by getting better teams. i know i will only go to a tournament now if i am told bracket is gonna be played out the way its written,like all other tournaments
1 pointand how many more 10 dollar bills would they have been if the bracket played out the way it was supposed to
1 point10 dollars is a good price at Maryville and at Arbys classic and Greenville also. the Cleveland tournament had very weak teams,and they didnt go by the bracket the way it was
1 pointNo need to dig out and run yet! When you gold dome window licking short bus riders see the F5 in the sky.....speed up that flap flap and run forest run!!! Ha!!!!
