Re: Making State a little tougher?
There is now way you live in Portland. First of all, your name wouldn't be "Farm Boy." Second, nobody outside of Central Oregon wants State in Redmond. I don't get the lack of understanding from people. Why inconvenience 95% of the attendees to go to Central Oregon during the winter? Did nobody learn from the Classic this year, when less than 50% of the expected schools actually attended due to weather?!?!? And for those that don't understand, you also need to ensure there is enough lodging for everybody. It's been a problem for years at the Classic having enough space. State would amplify the problem.
Having Freestyle/Greco in Redmond, Heck YES!! Love going there... in the Spring or Summer.
As for offering a thought on it all, taking 4 from each league needs to change. For example, the Mid-Willamette has 8 schools and the Inter-Mountain has 5.
Also they need to change it to where each league submits their rosters at the same time. Having the IMC view the other brackets, THEN making their weight decisions is quite frankly an unfair advantage to them.
