Agree, but

Should the discipline/tough love be in public?

Coaches can say what they want

I am thinking about the kid and how he would respond. I suspect different kids respond differently and this is where knowing your wrestler would play a role.

Calling out a kid

As I read the Seth Schwartz article on the Huskies Invitational tournament my heart sank a little when I read one of Coach Powell's quotes about his freshman wrestler Kamal Bey -

Congratulations to Elmhurst!

It's great that the Blue Jays are having such a successful season. They feature two of my favorite wrestlers (and people!) Joe Rau and Greedy Coleman.

Great article, sounds like a great young man

Thanks for sharing. I don't know BJ or his family but will always remember him as the first freestyle opponent for a young Sammy Brooks. BJ got him in a bow and arrow and it was over in about 30...

Great interview

Thanks for posting. I can't wait for the movie!
If Ellis says he wants to be the next Denzel, he will do it. It always amazes me how many high-profile people wrestled. I will add Mark Ruffalo to...

A couple are already in the lineup

Eddie Klimara is in the lineup for Okie St. and I think Brad Johnson is in the lineup for Oklahoma.

Sorry to be late to the party

I tried to get the finals live from the homepage and it's not showing - does anyone know why?

I was at the dual

The lights dimmed only for the face off/introductions then the lights come on for the actual dual. Not sure if that answers your question.

It was a great tournament

and it was great to see all the wrestlers with Illinois roots. Aside from Dardanes and Morrison at 133, Nick Dardanes took 3rd at 141 and Spartak Chino took 6th place at 157. Congrats to all of them....

If you don't have cable or satellite

I know I am probably in the minority but I don't have cable or satellite tv so
the $20/month (and you can stop it if there's nothing you want to see the next month) is a lot better than the price of...

BTN vs. Flo

I have to say Flo coverage of the Scuffle is pretty amazing. All rounds, all mats. Yes it's $20/month but BTN all access costs as well and the TV Network only showed the finals. Plus cable systems...

Thanks Dondo

Mike Schmidlin was amazing! Win or lose to go 7:00 at that age was extremely impressive. I enjoyed some of Sammy's matches more than others, but what a great experience for him. I think he learned a...

Here's what I found on the NU site

As of last year the most Midlands tournaments was Phil Rembert with 17 and the most consecutive tournaments was Mike Schmidlin with 15 so that would make sense if he was back this year with 16 in a...

16 years in a row

They announced that as the most consecutive appearances and I don't remember the gentleman's name, but he was not the same as the oldest participant who I believe they said was 52!

You are corrrect

Sammy and Jake wrestled in the finals of the cadet greco and cadet freestyle one year and Sammy lost both times. Sammy then beat Jake at preseason nationals one year.

I had way too much time on my hands during an 8 hour drive today so I came up with a little ditty about wrestlers, Christmas and the next big dual tournament - the Clash. Enjoy!

For what it's worth

Iowa coaches say it was a scheduling problem. They have a dual with Ohio State on Jan. 4 and had the same setup last year - a tough Midlands tournament and then went to tOSU and lost. I suspect they...
