    Serious Question tho...

    All that image says is "wrestled at Oklahoma State." As long as he wrestled at some point on the premises of the university, I label the claim as honest. It's not as if it says he wrestled for oklahoma state.

    Agreed. The kids love him which makes him more valuable to wrestling and its future than any of the old farts criticizing him.

    Excellent point. Getting teched in folk means you got completely outclassed. In freestyle it can mean a couple of close positions didn’t go your way.

    PSU next year

    The kid you named last, Beard. Seth Nevills is about to wrestle Pelusi from F&M. Pelusi has qualified for NCAA's 2x and had 2 wins in last year's tournament. We'll see how this goes. Nevills isn't great on short rest and he had to on about 55 minutes his last match and this rest is probably even shorter. So we'll see. EDIT: Nevills majored Pelusi 12-3 to win the F&M Championship. Seth had 1:42 RT in that result.

    Serious Question tho...

    Agreed. I think his technique shtick gets old really fast. Especially while watching a match. Comes across as a know-it-all, while many times being wrong. I got tired of watching his technique videos a long time ago because he starts every video by screaming at you and then he doesn't show the move as its actually performed in the video. Most of the time the technique he shows isn't the technique the wrestler hit.

    Nick Nevills transferring to??

    Nick has already been asked about transferring and he said he came to Penn State for the competition. He is not going anywhere. As noted by Buckshot, Nick's kid brother Seth just beat 4th ranked Youssef Hemida 9-7. He was leading 9-5 and had 1:15 of RT before giving up a late TD that narrowed the margin to 9-7.

    Should I quit?

    Get back to enjoying the sport. Everything else depends on that. In theory, you run, lift, cut weight, and all that in order to win. But winning is predicated on actually wrestling. If you quit, the game ends. It would be a shame if you quit, because you basically like it. Quit doing all the other stuff (particularly cutting weight), and wrestle. The sport hasn't changed, and you haven't in any fundamental way, either, so you can probably get back to enjoying it. Then start building. When your head is in the right place, you want to win. So when you lose, start fixing things. If you lose in a particular position, study it and practice there. If you lose because you're not strong enough, add some strength training. If you find you're not in good enough shape, do more conditioning. Maybe this eventually leads you back to running in the morning, and stuff like that... but if it does, it will be because you chose to do that, in order to solve your own problems. That makes an enormous difference in how you feel about things. Here's the hard part about all this: it means taking over your own life. Right now, you're doing things because you don't want to disappoint your dad, or your teammates. You're doing what your coach and other people tell you to do. That's not a bad way for a child to live, but it's not compatible with being an adult... and by high school, you need to start making that transition. This may cause some conflict with the adults who care about you, and who are accustomed to making decisions for you. If so, however, that conflict is now inevitable. Quitting the sport will cause conflict also. Sucking it up and continuing to be miserable just postpones it (briefly, in all likelihood), and makes it worse when it comes. Making a positive plan and moving ahead with it will probably produce the best outcome all the way around. Burnout isn't permanent, and if you ever loved wrestling, some part of you still does. Change the details of your life until things work for you. Be bold about it. Have a good life, and go pin as many people as you can.

    Should I quit?

    Hi John - I don't look at the HS forum that often so I just saw this - That is one of the best answers to any question I have seen on this forum - very astute.
