State Brackets are out

Recommended Posts

Reft was mocking Region 4, if my eyes aren't deceiving me, it looks like in every 1A-AA bracket a wrestler can win 1 match and be a state medalist. Who came up with this wonderful idea? If you can sit there and basically say qualifying for state out of Region 4 is a joke, what's your opinion of the A-AA state tournament. I'd like to know how it measures up to your level of standards, be honest.

Tron to be sure we understand, the wrestling out of that region is no joke. I stated many times. The regional qualifier for the state is a joke.

It easy to be negative with all the TSSAA changes, but here are a couple of facts (numbers to ponder)-

 

-this weekend the total number of qualifying wrestlers to the State- 746 (620 public, 448 AAA vs 172 A-AA & 126 private)

-in 1993 the total was 384 period

-with D-2 regions now, privates lost 98 wrestlers from last year (7 spots/wt), while publics picked up 172 (new A-AA)

-no respect of returning place winners in D-2 was given (Elisha Oliver seeded 2nd-2x state champ and Fargo champ, arguably the state's best wrestler)

Brackets are a complete joke again this year.

 

I've got a great idea to help the T$$AA make some more cash. How about a live stream of this 'random blind draw'. I'm sure a lot of people would pay to see the process live.

 

Too many uneven lop-sided brackets again this year.

126 Wilkins and Debien second round . Providing they both win their first round.  Really, Yall were right no rhyme or reason. 2 losses in state all year beat ranked wrestlers. Lost to Dickenson 2 times. The number 2 ranked wrestler and get thrown to Debien that quick. I guess itll be the hard way to get a medal at all.

I agree, and Debien made Dickenson look pretty bad a couple weeks ago
