75% of 3A regionals have 4 of the top 7 teams in them?

other part of the comment

I think he was talking about the part that said, "Some really good kids aren't going to get out! Ouch..."

1A has no comparison to 3A. If the regional is “tough”....oh well.

I don't really understand why only 3 qualify from regionals when there are 4 spots for state. If you really want the 4 best from a sectional to go down, this seems like an easy fix.

1A really does have no comparison to 3A. Their enrollment, facilities, numbers on the team, athletes who only just wrestle, wrestling opportunities outside of school in their area, as many top notch coaches due to low salary etc. 3A schools compete against schools and a demographic that is similar to their own school. 1A schools do the same. So in this case that regional is far more loaded than just about any 3A regional when stacked equally against schools that are of similar size and demographics. One can argue that some wrestlers that don't get out of a 3A regional would make it out of most 1A regionals and I would agree. But they also should with all of the advantages they have over a 1A school.

Rob Sherrill and I were talking about this the other day. Incredibly stupid and unfair. In 3A we don't usually get stupid until individual and dual team sectionals. Having a REGIONAL that loaded is criminal.

The IHSA always has a geographic component.
One of their goals is to ensure that all geographies are represented.
This is not criminal. It is strategic, and part of their core operating principals.

This is always an issue. Not just at the regional level, but also at the school level.

Do you know what you are called if you are the 2nd best 285 lb. wrestler in the world and the best one goes to the same school as you? JV.
