Hey Flashy, you usually do a great job, but don't you think you might have messed up a bit when a continuous first-ranked wrestler for the last two years gets bumped down because of ONE takedown in an overtime period at Regionals? You could have had two second placers, and no first place for this week. How are you going to handle it next week?

How about you all help Hild focus on winning a title instead of ending up as Illinois 1st 4 time 2nd place finisher. Rankings don't mean a damn thing and maybe if the focus was on grooming and preparation instead of forum chat this would be different in the past as well.

I can assure you that Hild doesn’t care about the rankings and is probably only worried about trying to capture the thus far elusive state title. Excited to see the rubber match on the big stage. Both are great competitors and will be highly successful next weekend.

I'd be curious to know how many kids have been runner up 3x. Anyone out there got that information stored somewhere?

Brian Murphy from Glenbard North went 3, 2, 2, 2 a few years back.

He went on to have a very successful career wrestling for Michigan. And I believe all 3 of his finals losses were to kids who went D1 also, Max Schneider, Luke Smith, and Kyle Langenderfer.

Interesting comment. Hild is pretty well prepared in his own mind to win the title. Nothing said on this forum will influence that. Lately, a lot of commenters seem to believe that this forum is for the wrestlers. It really isn't. It is for us fans and relatives to discuss what is happening in 1A wrestling. Forum "chat" is what it really is about. The rankings might not mean a damned thing, but it is the first thing many of us look at first. Would you know who Hild or Haley or Wasliewski were if not for this forum and the rankings? I tune in to this forum for just that type of information, and to comment if I feel like it.
