Okay, let's just take it easy. This forum should not be about disclosing personal information, even for those like Otto who want to act this way behind an anonymous name.

Otto, congratulations on...

Good thing your opinion doesn't mean squat to me, otto, whoever you are. And I doubt I'll ever need permission from you to post my opinions. I don't know if you coach city wrestling or what, but you...

Red herrings...

People who want to discuss city wrestling always point to a lack of feeder programs. But as a former city coach who now coaches elsewhere I can shed some light.

While feeder programs would...

It's at Maine EAST

That dual team tournament over two days, with 9-10 duals per team is at Maine East, not West, though Maine West is competing there.

Really cool idea. I think this is the kind of thing that Micky Pruitt might consider orchestrating again in the future. Seeing the midlands would be a great experience for these kids and may...

Many problems...

Well, this is one problem that isn't Mickey's fault. But I'm curious to see if he can help out with it. There are several things in play here.

1) CPS schools have overcrowding which forces...

I respect what you're saying, Twist, but teaching 3-5 classes doesn't mean you should tell a kid not to come out for wrestling or only support football or basketball. Other than being bitter about...

As a former cps coach I came to be glad shortly after the automatic bid went away. Kids now had to face the fact that they will have essentially NO meaningful success in this sport without dedication...

And what do you do??

You can always tell people who are garbage on the mat by how much smack they talk.

It's not just on the mat, either. Keep talking. That kind of attitude gets you nowhere in life.

How can you not agree with a kid qualifying? He qualified. He beat other wrestlers and took third.

I didn't agree with some of her calls, but I also didn't agree with many of the people sitting around me who seemed to think that she can't ref a match because of her gender.

My honest opinion of the Niles North/Leyden match at 119 was that these were good calls that your typical ref doesn't call during the season. The NN kid fled the mat and was called right away. The...

If the RB regional coordinator contributed to the problem, okay. But it's the coach's fault for not certifying him properly at 171.

Besides, what's the penalty for wrestling in like 30 matches...

No one really checks the IHSA certification sheets. It's more of an honor system.

I feel sorry for this kid. And I hope there is some accountability for this within the system. With all that...

Santiago is definitely a dark horse here. He's never beaten any of those top five kids. If he doesn't get out, he'll be back next year.

Santiago is a tough kid. He's a longshot here, but he's got some skills and hates to lose. I'd love to see him surprise a kid who looks past him.

I'm not ribbing on Pruitt. It's just one of a number of "facts" that exist without a logic backing it up. I think the tribune coverage is not based on the number of people who are interested, but on...
