Interesting discussion on where Montini fits in the national picture. My national Top 25 will appear in WIN shortly, so I won't add a spoiler alert on where I have Montini. The one hint I will...

Regarding the AAs and where they're from, I don't think it really has much to do with the program they came from. It has everything to do with what's inside each of those kids. They were driven to be...

Lee beat Suriano in the Super 32 finals by a point about four years ago. I think that's the only time they've met - Suriano doesn't do freestyle, at least to this point. Suriano beat Fix in another...

Two corrections to your previous post. First, Illinois had 5 AAs, not 4 - Richards, Mayes, Residori, Brooks and Jackson. Only Ohio (9) and Pennsylvania (8) had more. Minnesota, New Jersey and...

If you talked to Niles Ager or John Ridgeway today, I doubt that either of them feels they won a cheapened or tarnished state championship. Those kids worked their butts off to win a state title in...

So signing with Iowa made him a villain? I doubt it. If he's really as disrespectful to opponents as you claim - and I haven't seen that - then you're dead wrong by saying he'd have been a better fit...

What do you mean by this?

The only reason I see advanced by those advocating for a return to single-class wrestling is the arcane notion of "the real state champion." Who benefits from that...

"Sectionals and qualifying" would be divided how? What would you consider "appropriate" representation for smaller schools? Because coaches from bigger schools are campaigning for more for them and...

There's no point in making out Lee to be a villain. There was no villain in this match. It was a war between two really good wrestlers. You can argue whether Lee should have been out there or not,...

I guess it's all what you're used to. If you grew up wrestling in Ohio or Pennsylvania or Colorado or Alabama, you probably wouldn't be sitting around wondering, "Gee, why do I have to beat the same...

He'll go as far as his health will allow. He's already dealt with a lengthy rehab from torn labrum surgery that cost him most of his junior year - he only had 12 matches and didn't start until almost...

I watched the end of the match at least a dozen times. It's hard to see, but the takedown did beat the buzzer. Lee's hand touched after the scoreboard at matside ticked past 0:01 but before it ticked...

If you didn't think Lee was injured, you didn't watch the match. He reminded me of Cortez his senior year, when he couldn't push off on his leg and won the final against Nelson on guts alone. Lee...

Schools that wind up getting successed to 3A obviously are going to result in 3A schools getting pushed down to 2A to keep the 1/3-1/3-1/3 split. Chances are, of course, the schools going down are...

The three-class system has helped a lot of programs, particularly in 2A. Would Geneseo have experienced the success it has over the past several years without three classes? How about Triad? Or...
