    Iowa high school duals - what a mess

    Has anyone seen this? In the state duals championships Valley refuses to wrestle their best and underwood forfeited most of their matches because some jack whacker put state duals in front of individual championships. I heard that one CHAMPIONSHIP was JV vs JV!

    Valley lost 72-6!

    How was this not fixed before the season started!?

    I have no idea at all who thought putting the Duals the day before the start of State was a good idea. I don't fault the coaches who held out there wrestlers at all.

    If they are going to run the event like this then they might as well not have it. Holding it the week after State wasn't ideal, but at least it wasn't a farce like holding it today was.

    It just makes no sense. How do you do this with no coach input? I don't blame the coaches either - their guys need to wrestle the best of the best tomorrow all the way to the top.

    Re: Iowa high school duals - what a mess

    Totally ridiculous idea. If you're a state qualifier why would you go out and wrestle multiple matches the day before the first round? Why risk getting hurt? I see a lot of big name wrestlers sat out today and I don't blame them

    Re: Iowa high school duals - what a mess

    This article from the Register sums it up pretty well: Coaches concerned about state wrestling duals setup [with poll] | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

    2 key sections IMO:

    “It was the wrestling coaches advisory committee that recommended we make the change,” IHSAA assistant executive director Alan Beste said. “We brought it to them as a proposed change and they supported that. We sent it to our board and our board approved of the change.”

    Eddyville-Blakesburg coach Cory Connell and multiple other members of the wrestling coaches advisory committee told the Des Moines Register, however, that they were given little say in the decision.

    “We didn’t recommend it,” Connell said. “It was told to us that ‘This is what’s going to happen.’ ”

    Connell said coaches were only allowed to provide input on details such as starting times and whether they wanted to wrestle consolation meets out to eight places.

    “It may end up being the team that wins it has the fewest amount of state qualifiers,” Creston/Orient-Macksburg coach Darrell Frain said.

    Frain, Connell and Martensdale-St. Marys coach Brian Sweet said coaches at their respective district meetings unanimously opposed wrestling the duals on the eve of the individual meet and discussed possible solutions in the future.

    Makes me sick to hear that. All year was set up for tomorrow... Ruined due to the IHSAA.

    Kids have scholarships on the line tomorrow.

    Maybe Mo is paying for the WVU court case with Florida State and that is undecided.

    You know, Mizzou is going from 3 non cons to 4. WVU is going from 4 to 3. I think a stipulation should have been that mizzo has to play florida state to leave. Would open up the issues for WVU and give mizzou a little challenge for next season.

    This almost seems like the Pro Bowl to me. Although no one cares about the pro bowl
