Sometimes great ideas don't pan out

All week long, Kosmo has read with interest that the Oakland County wrestling tournament was going to be held at the Pontiac Silverdome.
The K-Man all week long loved the idea of staging the event at the Dome, given the kids would probably be excited to wrestle there and it's nice to see as many events at the former home of the Lions as possible.
Even better was the fact that the Macomb County tournament was going to be held there at the same time.
It all seemed like a great idea, but unfortunately maybe it hasn't played out the way most thought.
The first day was somewhat of a mess, as the event got a late start and the Eliminator Tournament for wrestlers with two losses had to be canceled.
Coaches also couldn't get around to see their wrestlers because of the vast space, so it's clear some kinks have to be worked out.
Kosmo still likes the idea and applauds the people who came up with it. It's just clear that sometimes great ideas don't turn out like people should and that some wrinkles definitely need to be ironed out if the event will be held at the Silverdome next year.
- Last season, Troy's James Young had an outstanding freshman season before some eligibility issues forced him to miss the final month or so of the season. Kosmo doesn't know if those issues had anything to do with discipline or what, but it's clear Young has responded well to what took place. He's come back with a vengeance this season, and it was capped off by a 30-point performance against Troy Athens on Friday.
