    I primarily follow college wrestling,but I try to go to at least 1-2 H.S.Tournaments every year.
    I also have a few friends who coach H.S in New Jersey
     
    1.The coaches I Know all agree with what someone posted earlier about too many weight classes.
    They all feel there should be 10-11,tops.
     
    2.A number of football coaches actively discourage their players from wrestling.
    That's hurting the numbers in the upper weights.
     
    3.The participation is youth wrestling is steady.
    But between camps,private coaches/schools and the length of their season,these kids are going year round.
    A lot of what would be "decent" wrestlers in high school seem to be getting burned out.
    One of our friend's sons started out loving the sport and was pretty good.
    His  parents thought he was going to be the next Gable.
    So they put him in a wrestling school and got a private coach.
    After a couple of years of that,he didn't want to go anywhere near a mat.

    I gotta agree with this. When I was a kid you used to wrestling like 17 duals and 2 tournaments. In a dual even if you lost, by not getting pinned you helped the team. You played a part in your team winning. The duals also lasted a little longer than an hour. In a tournamnet you sit around all day and only feel valued when you win/place in the tournament. 
    Football and basketball games take up a few hours at most. You dont have to sit around for 12+ hours weekend after weekend.
     
    Sometimes wrestling is it's own worst enemy.

    The emphasis is now on more tournaments and less on duals. I have spoken to many parents and they hate sitting all weekend long. The kids are tired of it also. Another thing is it is hard work, a grinding sport and many kids don’t want to put in the work to be a part of a sport they feel doesn’t “pay off”

    IMO the NCAA should not allow wrestlers the option of sitting out  the qualifier and then accepting a wildcard into the NCAA tournament.  Injuries are part of the sport and if a wrestler is not healthy enough to compete in the qualifier they should in no way be given a wildcard.  What happened last season with Surriano is unacceptable and only prevented another wrestler the opportunity to attend the big dance.

    The bigs have done a good job figuring out Snyder and now they keep those cankles away. But I agree I think Snyder gets him when it really counts

    I agree, more frustration because he has the talent and strength yet just does a good job of disappointing. The frustration is the finishing part of his losses

    Put in Burcher, at least he will put up a fight and not get called for stalling all the time. Hell he even shows he can wrestle a little bit.
