More specifically, this is the Lehigh Wrestling Forum. And F&M is a fellow EIWA member.
One of the reasons I miss the WR EIWA Forum. This is an EIWA matter and there's no longer a place to properly discuss such things.

You know guys, I only bring this up because of above topic and it's: wrestling/ EIWA/ and in a round about way, LEHIGH is involved here as well.

W/ the exception to JDA 8-) . if your intentions are to reply w/ a snarky responses... don't even bother.

The internet is full of jerks, and there is NO NEED for you to ADD TO IT! :|

Are you surprised by that?

The above response wasn't directed at you... it was directed at the other two prior posts... OR did I misread one of them?
Van, unless he was "joking", came off as if he was serious.
JAD... I don't know about. (Misread his response? )
You, JDA, unless I was mistaken, mostly lament the lack of an EIWA forum for an appropriate response.
I concur.
The above response was not directed to you! (Perhaps I should've used a smiley emoticon vs the cool... though I've always thought of you as a cool guy in the first place, anyway. ;) )

I read it the wrong way, sorry. Where else is there to post EIWA-related info? It causes me real problems, especially when tournament information needs to be posted.

JDA. If you go back to the Board Index, You see that their are Forums for Moraviaian, Muhlenberg, Laf-at-it, and the Patriot League. I don't know how much real data is there, as so much trash now pollutes the sites. I imagine EIWA could be added. (I thought there were forums for the Ironpigs, Phantoms, and Steel FC)

I now see the Pro Forums are below where Isaw an ad Banner (the Steelhawks Indoor football team is there, not the Soccer team which like so many Millenials moved home with the Parents.- also a site for the Reading Fightins)

It's still the Lehigh Valley Sports main site; even if an EIWA forum could be added I'm not sure how many fans would notice. Look at how long it took us to find it, and even then we had to be told about the site.

The WR EIWA Forum still works, sort of, but many of the old posts are blank. It seems to work best with the now-unsupported Internet Explorer browser.

Sat in on today's EIWA coaches' meeting -- a topic for the EIWA Forum, of course.

Not much in the way of news; there may be some sort of statement from the NCAA in the next few days.

Teams are having problems putting schedules together -- if there's no competition until the spring semester it's likely that conferences will stress intra-conference matches; which messes up inter-conference duals for which contracts have already been signed. Nobody knows what the qualifying process for NCAAs will be, other than it'll be different from what's been used in recent years.


There was a report from the NCAA Div I Coaches' Committee released earlier today, based on an April meeting. Two notable recommendations were that bouts against teammates in tournaments should not count for ranking and qualification purposes; and that multiple wins over the same quality opponent should count as multiple quality wins, not one. The EIWA already did this for seeding in the 2020 tournament. The reasoning was that beating the same opponent three times counts as three wins on the W-L record, so to be consistent the wrestler should also earn three sets of quality win points. Having done the number-crunching, it's not that straightforward, but I agree with the reasoning.

Put a fork in it daddy this season ain't happening. Damn shame but life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
