    It looks to me like Cael coaches a lot of guys up. They arrive really good, and he makes them even better. They win big matches, they win big duals even against some long odds (see tOSU last year) and they win team titles. The constant rips from opposing fans seems almost counterproductive for them at this point.

    Dake - Taylor - My Best Rival

    First showing just wrapped up. Pretty good film. The best part was them talking about their youth and how they became friends. The college and international stuff we already pretty much knew about. They're really seem to attribute a lot if their successes to one another.

    There are other reasons too. For example, an upper weight will have better training partners at tOSU. As good as Jake Varner is, the combination of Snyder, Tervel, Moore, Martin and the various training partners Snyder brings in is the best. Also, they may have an affinity to a certain style of coaching. As good as Cael is, and he is the best coach in the country, he isn't the right fit for literally every recruit. Some people also take geography into account. Some take existing friendships. Half of OSU's lineup grew up together. There are never a doubt where Fix, Joe Smith, Gfeller, and Kaid Brock were going. Scholarship money is a thing too. With how many top recruit go to PSU, they are not handing out full rides. In fact, I doubt anyone on the team has one. there just isn't enough to go around. Guys like Robbie Howard come from wealthy families, so it isn't an issue for him to turn down a full ride at a dozen other schools when PSU is offering 50% (I have no idea if that is true - just an example). Academics, as you said, should matter. It isn't just Cornell/Michigan/Stanford etc. Some lesser ranked schools have excellent individual programs. Northwestern has some programs ranked above Harvard's, even though Harvard is a better ranked school overall. Many of the wrestlers also don't just take 1 item into account. They might want excellent wrestling, a warm climate and a good engineering program. PSU might be the best team, but they hate the cold, so (insert school) might sound more tempting

    I personally find intriguing the blatant disregard for the "hype" by both of them. They seem to be best friends, which is pretty cool. Both are now World Champions. Both seem to be super good people. Both seem to be making the entire sport better. Mad respect to both of them...

    He has now been blacklisted and banned by NJSIAA from officiating any event that Buena competes in. I read somewhere that there may be a pending lawsuit as well. Ironic since he supposedly said he enforced the rule because he didnt want to get sued... and by enforcing the rule hes now getting sued.

    I was surprised that JB said he'd never seen this before. While not as prevalent as it was doing the "hippie" era you cite, its not that uncommon. Ben Askren tweeted that he had to trim his locks on more than one occasion in college. (He also said he wore a hair net in high school in order to comply with the rules.)

    Had to have five of my athletes shave at the last tournament we were at.

    The ref is racist. His prior actions confirm that. There is no way a racist ref doesn’t allow that to influence his reffing.

    When that's what you begin your response with, it's time to move on to other things...

    I gruaduated about a decade ago as well. I shaved the night before the state tournament and the refs still deemed my face had stubble so I had to dry shave with no water while in line for skin checks. About an hour later my face looked like the kool-aid man ha, but I passed my skin check. I wasn’t mad at the ref though, rules are rules.
