Happy New Year from Matmen

As far as writing goes, I don’t have much to write right now. We have about 374,000 page views going into 2016, for both sites. Far better than I could have hoped 27 months ago. Still just a starting point.

For the Northeast folks, I just posted Knockout brackets. Think it’s not a tough tournament? Look at 145. A state champion was FOURTH after losing to state champions in the semis and the third-place match. Kids that placed last year at states did not place at this one. That’s just one weight class.

Working mostly on record-keeping and starting to sift through the next set of rankings. Assuming I can ever do another one. I’ve heard from 3 coaches out of 13 so far that were listed yesterday, and only got results from 2. There’s still time but it’s going to vanish quickly.

For the Northwest folks, I’m still needing the third- and fifth-place matches from Beast. If I don’t get those in my hands by end of day, I won’t be able to write it up. I’m also needing Andrews Invite brackets. Emailing Coach Alt about that right now.


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in both 1992 and again in 2011. But I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. We combined those sites into North Florida Matmen in the summer of 2018. And, we've started South Georgia Matmen in November of 2018. Our work is never paywalled, our content is searchable for all time. We're here because the kids keep lacing 'em up, so we'll keep writing 'em up.
