  1. Super happy to see that Region 8 had ten placers to go along with 2 state champs. I think it was in '14 they had zero placers and in '15 that they had one. So they are trending up! Hopefully that will continue in the coming years. Certainly Collierville is on the upswing so that bodes well for the region. Would like to see Bartlett and Houston step up as well.
  2. Wow...looks like Cleveland was especially salty this weekend. Maybe we can start tracking saltiness points at future state tournaments and list it right up there with the team points standings. Hand out a Saltine cracker award when it's all over with. Like the Razzies.
  3. We assume posters are parents and adult fans but why should that be the case? Anyone with an email account can post. Still...I am sensitive to your point.
  4. Ahh...okay. I see TSSAA.org and TSSAASPORTS.com both work. I wasn't aware of the second website. Thanks.
  5. I don't think it's official. TSSAA's url is a .org, not a .com.
  6. Arlington Houston Collierville and Munford will wrestle for the R8 title tomorrow. I expect it will be Arlington and Houston advancing to states, but Collierville might give Houston a run for its money.
  7. No one wins when something like this happens. Well except Tyler Seeley of course.
  8. This event should have been cancelled. Once it was determined that is would go on as planned there was no way to avoid some party from feeling they were wronged given the circumstances. Looking at this from afar -- a dangerous thing to do -- it seems that the two coaches should have come to an agreement beforehand.
  9. Trae McDaniel (Cleveland) over Brayden Ivy (Morristown-Hamblen West) (Fall 3:47
  10. Forgot about Bond. Yeah, I don't think anyone in that corner of the woods is looking around with raised eyebrows. That said the separation between WC and Arlington, Beech, Brentwood... is unquestionable.
  11. Baylor without Duffy at 182. No one to replace him so they lost all his would-be points.

    Looking forward to the Blackman-Arlington dual. These teams are very close. Noticed that Brooks Sacharczyk was out against Oakland and Tullahoma. His availability could be pivotal tonight at 182.
  14. It's a poll. It just tells us what the coaches as a group are thinking. It's a "wisdom of the crowd" kind of thing. Why would one put anymore stock in it than that?
  15. cbg, you are the king of understatement . Winning any college tournament is a major accomplishment. Winning one as a high schooler is rare and exceptional. Winning one as a middle schooler is virtually unheard of. cbg: " Sending that rover to Mars? Yeah that's kinda cool."

    AAA 182

    I think Blackman and Arlington will both be at Brentwood. It's not hard to imagine Brooks winning a rematch given their first match was relatively close, and it was towards the beginning of the season at Blackhorse. Then what; Dylan, Brooks, Austin? I think we can all agree it will all get sorted out in short order in the coming weeks. I think my main point was that both Brooks and Austin IMO have been outperforming Dylan and the rankings did not reflect that. Clearly Hamm values the "highest returning placewinner" criteria, but I'd think at some point one has to give more weight to this year's body of work. That was my point. And for the record I agree with you on the order of Antcliffe, Sacharczyk, Jones... as of this week.

    AAA 182

    Austin was down 1-7 at end of 1st. Came back and wore Clark down over the last two periods. Down 10-12 with time winding down in the third he got a point on a stall call then got the takedown plus two backs to win it 15-12.

    AAA 182

    Okay. Antcliffe just wrestled down in Alabama today and took down the #15 ranked guy (nationally) at 182. Will be interested to see if this affects the rankings, especially in light of the fact that Jones went to Florida and took two more losses (another by pin).

    Oustanding. I hope everyone is healthy going in and coming out.

    AAA 182

    Negative. It's one thing to call the rankings crap and disparage the work Hamm does. It's another to bring up legitimate, constructive points. For instance, Jones has one loss while wrestling up this year but it was to another 182er who was also wrestling up. In fact Samuel Smith wrestled at 182 in his next two matches against Cookeville and Tullahoma on that same day. So in my book that is a bad loss for the number one guy to -- by Hamm's own criteria -- an unranked opponent. By that reason alone he should drop. Also...to weaken the "returning medalist" consideration...aren't we far enough along this season that their body of work should outweigh last year's accomplishments. I think so and given this both Sacarczyk and Antcliffe merit a higher rank. Furthermore Antcliffe made it to the semi finals at 170 last year before medically forfeiting out to 6th place. They never wrestled one another and any claim that Jones' 5th place is a better accomplishment in light of this is suspect at best. Nevertheless if one has to be dogmatic I'll grudgingly concede this last point.

    AAA 182

    Would be interested to hear the case to have Dylan Jones as the #1 in the rankings at 182 given he as lost 3 of 7 wrestled matches this season and two of those losses were by pin. No notable wins over any ranked wrestler. Brooks Sacharczyk has only one close loss to Antcliffe (AAA #2) and two convincing wins over Cade Young (AAA #4). Antcliffe has one SV loss to McCallie’s Sell (AA #1) and wins over Sacharczyk (AAA #3), Duffy (AA #2), Johnson (AAA #5), and Hagey (AA #5). Seems at this point it should be Antcliffe and Sacharczyk at 1 and 2 then Young and possibly Jones as 3 and 4.
  22. The other thing that ANY coach should invest time and energy into is establishing and building a feeder program. For long term success it is paramount. For this also you need to have the right people. Preferably a person who is technically competent, good with kids and parents, in it for the long haul, and communicates well with you. If you are lucky you will find all these qualities in one person but more likely it will be a group effort.

    Dang, I looked in TW and couldn't ferret it out. Thanks! That looks to be another good pool of teams.

    No. Talking about Friday January 11; the night before the GP west tourney at Brentwood HS.
  25. Can someone in the know please post the teams participating in this event. Can't seem to find this online. Thanks in advance.
