  1. By random draw, he means that the unseeded wrestlers are placed randomly. Pigtails (or byes depending on your point of view) are placed randomly as compared to the seeded wrestlers. That's actually the rule both in HS and college. However, especially in HS it's generally accepted to seed all and thereby the higher seeds get the byes.
  2. All events everywhere! You can't call them all-inclusive otherwise!
  3. What's the over-under on number/length/severity of response coming shortly?
  4. I was hoping you'd change the subject though!
  5. Gotcha on the 2nd part. I can't remember when on the monthly descent plan (so to speak). And I don't think it started in the 60s. I think maybe late 70s early 80s?
  6. Yeah, I think Dec +3, Jan +2, Feb +1- Scratch 1st day then +1 +2. But 127 would be day 2 of second weight class because there was no 125. 118, 126, etc.
  7. You tell me. When I posted- it was. Simple statement of fact. I didn't care one way or the other and still don't.
  8. What's wrong with you? I did use the word coincide as you quoted. And you railed against it saying it didn't "coincide".
  9. I wasn't reasoning anything. All I said was that SafeSport timing coincided with the Nassar thing. Meaning the trial. I don't understand what the issue you have is. It made the main news a few months before.
  10. For us with USAW- 2017. The lawsuits were mainly filed late winter/early spring, I think. It was around late spring into early summer we started hearing about SafeSport. Fargo was in July and I think I was taking the training just before that.
  11. That's why I said what I said. He wasn't born until Whitey coached there. I forgot he stayed on to coach.
  12. Not sure what your point is. I didn't say it was coincidental as in it accidentally happened then. co·in·cide occur at or during the same time.
  13. Background checks are for coaches and officials and state leaders. I don't think athletes get them.
  14. Because it's too early? EIWA did the first go round Monday night as preliminary. Usually no brackets until the day before.
  15. Background checks have been around for several years. USAW involvement with Safesport does coincide with the MSU issue. The first training we went through was just prior to Fargo 2017. I don't remember separate SafeSport background checks though- just training. Then we have had additional training sessions each year with more people needing to take it. That included kids 18+ since 2019 and I believe now all must take some. It's tailored per age.
  16. I didn't think Julian was born while Whitey wrestled there but he stayed on another year as coach.
  17. Often fewer than that. 1936 HWT- 3 guys (Arguably 4 since one was from the host school of Washington & Lee)
