Some Brackets Up

(Editor’s Note: Updated with Clay dual results posted; recap forthcoming)

Arlington Optimist and Seminole Wrestling Classic brackets have been posted as of a moment ago, to go with the brackets for Border Wars and Clash of the Titans that were posted previously. All IBTs for the Northeast area are now up for Week 1.

I have a new mantra that I will be putting in the tagline for the site so that there can be no doubt left. Matmen STRONGLY encourages ALL coaches and scorekeepers to check their scoresheet’s final tally against a host’s final tally before leaving a given dual. Unless a scoresheet as submitted by a host is in some way egregiously wrong (i.e., incorrect amount of points given for a major, tech, etc.) on the face of it, I will not change any more of them. If Kid A is listed by the volunteer scorekeeper for Host 1 at Tournament X, and really Kid B won and there’s video and there’s this and that, what I will care about — because this is what media cares about — is what is listed on the official scoresheet. If it only matters to you to ask about it or say my results are wrong the day after the event, and you don’t for whatever the reason check the results with the tournament organizer before you leave the building, I’m sorry but I can’t help you any more at that point. If that bothers you, then I would recommend another site that will cover you in the manner that you would prefer.

I have Matanzas duals in hand, plus Buchholz duals hopefully are now on Track (they were not as of last night). Plus a Northeast #NextLevel to write and team rankings to recontemplate. All today.


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
