  1. ChiefWildEagle on

    Was the Brandon White at 160 for JJEF actually Dale White? If not he missed a match and will he still be ready and eligible for Divisionals?

  2. where are the D2 guys on

    anyone know the current field for Edgemont tournament ? going to look at last years resullts, but some may have left, some may have joined.

    saw Tyler still out, how long ?

    Saw Trey was out? just getting a rest after Easterns? sick ?

  3. ChiefWildEagle on

    So it appears Dale White will not be in the post season. Too bad, kid was in the mix for a state chip.

  4. It is still possible that Dale White could get an injury waiver and thus not be required to have the minimum of 6 matches to participate in the sectionals.

  5. He’s gonna wrestle in the post season, why do u think he took a fft at rck duals the first week in January?? Just for the fun of it? He will be at sectionals the question is what kinda shape is he in. And what do the guys like miller and djokavik do? They all ran from dale when they thought he was healthy, do they go back up thinking its a better chance???

  6. splitting hairs on

    no disrespect to Danny Murphy but I would call the Erickson win a quality win, not so sure it was a BIG win, in no way an upset. Murphy is a good wrestler but I would think Erickson wins at least 9 out of 10, but Murphy is going to be All-Section, this isnt a slam on Murphy. Also McLiverty beating little DiMarsico should happen every time.

    I just didnt like the headline that puts the Calvano BIG WIN in the same sentence as McLiverty and Erickson beating guys they should beat. Calvano had a huge win depending on how much respect you give the D2 guys (Muldoon not a section champ, Calvano 3x i think)

  7. 6 weigh-in rule on

    do we know if White has been weighing in ? someone sad he took a forfeit already ? or were they confusing him with Brendan White (brother?) its the dumbest rule if its just 6 weigh-ins. As long as the guy can stand on the scale he can weigh-in and be good to go come sectionals. Or is that not accurate is it not 6 weigh-ins but 6 matches ? I dont think the point of this rule is to decide if injured wrestlers can compete but rather to keep kids who really can’t compete from wrestling in sections (too keep numbers down and make sure things go quickly) Why not require a certain number of wins? can’t remember what they did when i was in school, if anything. what was the rule before this ? or has this always been the rule ? Also would be shocked if White doesn’t get an injury waiver.

  8. Great job coaches on

    One thing I will say is that we had 3 matchups yesterday where all section wrestlers actually faced each other. Good job by those coaches not bumping around and giving their wrestlers quality matches and the fans the matches they want to see. I’m tired of people bumping around to protect seeding chances or records and say we were trying to win the dual bs.

  9. I heard the cops were called to Nanuet because the usual few Pearl River parents felt it necessary to fulfill the stereo type, and were asked to leave the school. So SAD for the pearl river wrestlers that were embarrassed by their parents conduct again. I guess even the classiest coach can not control those folks.

  10. Great Job Coaches
    I agree 100% too many coaches bump kid’s away from other teams good kid’s. I was hoping to see a result of Perry vs Gallagher but I guess Disanto decided not to see that match instead see Perry & Gallagher get easy pins.

  11. Great job coaches on

    Here’s an easy way to figure dodging in duals…. Ask a wrestler his record, he will know it in 2 sec. Ask him the teams record he might not know it, or take a while. Ask a coach his teams record he knows it in 2 sec, ask him the record of one or two kids he won’t know it. Dual wins are for coaches, wrestling is for the kids.

  12. Duals are for the team, matches are for the wrestlers, wrestling is for the school. It all matters. and winning matters. Most kids get asked hey did you have a match ? how’d you guys do ? aww you lost? how’d you do though ? oh you won, thats whats up….

    hey coach, how’d your boys do ? how did (insert good wrestlers name) do ? oh of course he won ?

    A coach coaches a team, he wants to get a team a win. Now when you bump away and trade sixes sometimes it doesnt make a difference. When you see D2 teams with holes in their rosters forfeiting to good kids and wrestling weak kids that makes sense if you want to win. Weekends are for tough matches, weekdays are for getting your school some victories if possible. If its not about winning turn off the scoreboard.

  13. Every team qualifies for the postseason in wrestling, in team sports they don’t. Those sports winning and losing matters. Why do fans show up for the finals in tournaments and not the first or second rd? They get to see good matches.

    people are tired of going to duals to see sec champ wrestle section runner up, then it turns out sec champ gets fft, and runner up wrestles jv kid. We need to turn people on to this sport, not turn them off. If wins are for the school go ask your ad, school principal, superintendent the teams record, tell me what your response is.

    Look at somers, did anyone on your team lose tonight? Nope. So you guys won? Nope.

  14. If Suffern does not recieve multiple forfeits from both Pearl River and Clarkstown North they lose to all Rockland schools.

  15. There is a team score kept, you want to win. if wrestler A (126) from team 1 is an (B+) wrestler, wrestler B (132) from team1 is a (C-) wrestler, Wrestler A2 (126) from team 1 is a (C-) wrestler …. wrestler Z (126) from team 2 is a (A+) wrestler, wrestler Y (132) is a (B-) why go take two losing match-ups ??

    team 1 – team 2
    126 (B+) wrestler likekly loses to team 2 (A+) team points to team 2
    132 (C-) likely loses to team 2, team points to team 2 (lose anywhere from 6-12 points in two matches)

    126- throw weaker guy vs A+, maybe gets pinned
    132 – still good match up look to win and maybe only give up a couple pts

    elite guys also don’t want to wrestle each other because they dont want to give up seeds and a loss during the regular season which doesn’t mean anything will mean something come sectional time when you’re seeded 2/3 instead of 1. You don’t have to beat EVERYONE to win the section, you have to beat the people in your path, the easier the path, THE EASIER THE PATH.

    Wrestling isn’t for the fans….. so what if they don’t enjoy what they see.
    basketball you don’t put your best guy on their best, dont want your best player picking up fouls
    football you don’t run on a team with a strong run defense just because its more entertaining to see a battle.

    throw that ask a Super, Principal, whoever what the record is nonsense out… good AD’s know if they have a winning program, a so-so, or a losing program, and really good ones know within a win our two. Principals and superintendants and others have no clue who the good wrestlers are, and whether or not they squared off with the other teams best.

  16. In close league dual meets ill agree with you ugh. But what do non league duals matter, what do matches you cant win matter? In order to build this sport we need to have more support of the casual fan. The guy who would show up if he knew brian realbuto and s.rod were definatly going to wrestle eachother that night.

    The fact you say kids should dodge other kids in duals to protect their seed is everything that is wrong with this sport.

    In football if you have an elite running game and the defense has an elite rush defense do you go away from what you do best and pass the ball more? Basketball usually guards by position if playing man to man, so if you have a great center, and I have a great center they guard each other all game.

    We need the fans to care, that’s why there are so many forfeits now. No one talks about wrestling other than people in the sport, kids aren’t interested. Create interest in our sport, get more to kids to come out, deeper teams, better kids it all starts from the ground up.

    Last night I had 6 kids out in a league match we realistically couldn’t win, but I could have sent Murphy up to 38 and the kid at 38 weighed in at 32 to face erickson. Who would have gotten anything out of that, instead erickson/murphy had a good match (not great erickson controlled most of the match.) But the 38 match was a great match 4-3 involving 2 wrestlers who would have gotten at least majored if I dodged kids. So 4 kids had a good match last night instead of 0. Isn’t that what it’s about.

  17. Ps. Vince ranked us in the top 10 in his rankings with a 6-14 record so what do wins and losses really matter. Other than for my ego (which is already big enough) lol

  18. Just want to clear the air: Dale White WILL be wrestling at 160 for Divisional, Sectionals & STATES. He has been cleared by his doctor to wrestle, he needs 5 more COMPETITIONS which we hope to have by January 28, we have also filed a waiver just in case. The 1 competition he had, he weighed in at 160 for the RCK Tournament and bumped up to 170 to get a forfeit.

  19. ChiefWildEagle on

    Coach Weaver, thanx for the update, best of luck and hope he is ready to go. Always a pleasure to see the kid on the mat.

  20. First my wrestlers know the regular season is about team first. If I as the coach make a move in a dual it is to get the team win. If fans don’t like it too bad. My team is first and the fans are a distant 2nd.

    Coach Weaver I have a dual opening if you need to get another match in for Dale. Shoot me an email.

  21. you do what you do to win, if you can’t win you throw strategy out the door. If you have a good run game but the other team has a shakey secondary you have to take shots downfield. If you have 12 guys in your lineup and give up 3 forfeits (its safe to say if just a few guys lose your team will lose) you have to play the numbers. Pin kids you can pin, avoid kids you can’t get bonus points on. If you have 5/6 guys out well then you’re damned if you do, damned if you dont. Then its about what makes your kid better. If you’re kid is looking good for a top 3 seed you don’t want him losing to the 4 seed. If he can’t get better in the practice room (or whatever he is doing day in day out..club?) then one match isn’t going to make him better

    as for the problem with interest in wrestling?? guys ducking tough competition ? i would give that about .05% of the blame. I would say xbox and playstation have a lot to do with it, the preference to sit around after school and BS with your buddies rather than prove something to yourself is a bigger problem than ever before, too many orange slices from mama at halftime, too much coddling, and just not enough kids that can handle what wrestling is really about. You could have t-shirt cannons at dual meets and the best concessions, and pyrotechnics for entrances, and kids will still be too soft to come out and wrestle, they will just be more likely to hang around after school and then come sit in the bleachers for matches. Kids rather TALK ABOUT SOMETHING than actually BE PART OF SOMETHING, cause you can joke about someone else losing a lot easier than you can grow from a loss.
