    "I am not sure its even necessary to have an "official" best highschool wrestling program."

    Hey!! No!!!
    Think of all those banners hanging from the rafters in the (St. Edward) Eagle's nest. It's pretty cool.

    A story--One day the principal of Cleveland St. Ignatius High School (who has twice, I think, won USA's today's mythical football title) was giving an address of some sort AT the St. Edward gym. He opened his presentation by pausing, slowing looking across the pennants floating on high, and asking the crowd "Do you guys play football here?"

    Seriously,
    You are echoing Intermat's philosophy regarding how tough it can be to determine top teams from across the land, though I think Jason's rationale applied to doing a comprehensive ranking as opposed to simply naming a number one.

    That's odd... one of my dad's old wrestlers is the TD for Rumble on the Red and he told me AV was entered. I also thought they were traveling out of state to Iowa somewhere??

    Who knows...I do know, some states Do Not allow out of State meets.

    Owatonna has meets every year in Iowa and Wisc. Also this year Owatonna is traveling to Florida for a meet, which I'm guessing is one of the reasons they wont be at The Clash.

    Lets be honest, they don't want to be at the Clash. Any team that is legit and could be invited to an elite tournament wants to go, if they can. They will probably split the team into 3 Varsity's and go to crappy tournaments to get the coach 12 wins for his overblown record.

    Ok I was just saying Minnesota teams can wrestle outside of the state. There was no need for you to go bash them. One of the reasons they do well is because they do split the team up like that. It gets young guys good experience they wouldnt normally get. If it wasn't for the coach doing that I wouldn't have wrestled at all. No matter how many wins they have if they don't beat the quailty teams they aren't any good but 2 years ago when they went 60-1 they did win a state title and were ranked as high as 5th in the nation by a pole. They beat Apple Valley 4 straight times so they at least have a decent program whether you like the way Scot Davis runs it not.

    Owatonna came to the Eds gym a couple of years back. That's not exactly avoiding competition.

    Hey MNFan was that Pole Lech Walesa, the former Polish President? I wasn't aware he did national wrestling polls in the US. (Had to raze you on that one.)
    I was at St Edward when they wrestled Owatonna. I think they should have saved the airfare. Totally out of their league. Apple Valley was very competitive in 2000. How many times has Owatonna and Valley wrestled alltime and what is the record?

    Gee, 4 times added to the 2 other times in 30 years, WOW 6 wins. If AV never left Region (Section) 1, Owatonna would have made state once since 1980.
