  2. spencer lee is from saegertown. while i don't like the transfers, you can't put FR and BECA in the same category. at least lee and brown moved to FR drawing area. they also don't compete with schools drawing from such small populations as in AA.

     

    i have been pushing for years the idea that transfers can't score for you, but they can wrestle. this would relate to FR situation with lee and brown. you could tighten down on the transfer rules without hurting the kids. allow transfers to wrestle, but when they wrestle in a dual meet it is 6-0 for the opposing team. then they don't accumulate any team points in the tournaments. this would allow coaches the decision to wrestle a homegrown kid and sit the transfer if its not worth giving up the 6pts.

    Every student (wrestler and nonwrestler) at BeCaHi is a transfer by that definition, as there is no feeder system to speak of for that school.

     

    You are wrong, Pirate.

    Bethlehem Catholic has an elementary wrestling program (K through 6). They were runner-up in the Valley Elementary Wrestling League to champion Northampton.

    1. Northampton 171 points

    2. Bethlehem Catholic 141.5

    3. Forks Twp. 139 (Easton)

    4. Palmer Twp. 138 (Easton)

    5. Whitehall 105


  3. This topic should be called, "Too much time on my hands"

     

    Ah yes, I'm glad you posted. Was waiting for you leave your mom's basement and ask her to give you a ride to the local public library to use their internet.

     

    Willie, how about "The Trolls" who bring nothing of substance to the forums, but love to hate on wrestlers they have never seen in person, since they don't leave their mommy's basement? :twisted:


  4. IMO, the Hawks have missed Schwab and also a big guy with talent to teach the 184-HWT guys. I don't have any inside info or a crystal ball, but I expect some changes for next year.

     

    Umm...Last I checked Iowa has Kurt Backes, a 2x AA and NCAA finalist, coaching the upper-weights. If you were at NCAA's, Backes was in the corner with Tom or Terry for almost all weight classes, not just the upper's. Backes deserves to be the 2nd paid assistant, with M* being moved to volunteer.

  6. Next year CMU appears to have a solid lineup from 125-184, with each wrestler having the potential to AQ. Instant help is sorely needed at 197 and 285, however.

     

    CMU will be just fine at 197, don't worry about that weight. He is not on the roster yet, though. The 285 starter could be a true freshman, so the youngster will be thrown to the wolves out of the gate.


  7. Central Michigan will be BETTER this year:

     

    125 - Joe Roth: MAC Champ, 1-2 record at NCAA's

    133 - Scotti Sentes: returning after a redshirt. 2x All-American, 2x MAC champion

    141- Nick Hodgkins: 22-6 record competing in open tournaments as a redshirt at 149.

    149 - Donnie Corby: 2x NCAA qualifier. MAC champ at 157 in '12. Won 2 matches at NCAA's in '11 at 149.

    157 - Lucas Smith: 32-8 record in open tournaments while redshirting.

    165 - Mike Ottinger: MAC champion and NCAA qualifier as true freshman.

    174 - Eric Cubberly or Craig Kelliher

    184 - Ben Bennett: 3x All-American and 3x MAC champion. Looking to become school's 1st 4x AA

    197 - Jackson Lewis or Kelliher

    285 - Jarod Trice: 2x All-American, placed 4th at Olympic Trials, and 2011 Midlands champion.
