2 pointsthe ability for kids to transfer TO these schools and not have to sit out, and kids not being able to transfer from a school is wrong. If one is allowed, then all should be allowed. Just because "boarding" is involved, should not change eligibility rules. I've never been in favor of a high school kid having to sit out, but this needs to be a level playing field. FOR ALL kids
1 pointBottom line, the communication around and assembly method of this team was bad. There is a statewide coaches email list that could have been used to get the word out to everyone to allow the opportunity for those most deserving the opportunity to participate. There are some very good wrestlers on our team but also appears some that were placed on the team because of the selection process. Nothing against KG but I feel like since it was his responsibility and opportunity to represent the state by coaching this team then the issue is his to own. Hopefully we can learn from this and in the future our National Team coaches will do a better job putting together a more representative team to include the whole state and not just the eastern half.
1 pointYeah ive heard rumors of him and another solid name transferring to Baylor next year.
1 pointI don't have any inside information or anything, but he seemed pretty chummy with the Baylor wrestlers at the WC Wildcat tourney earlier this year. Pretty sure I saw his dad talking to some of the Baylor parents there too. Wouldn't be surprised if he's wrestling for them next year.
