    it's been fun to watch Rutgers go from EIWA bottom dweller to a competitive top 20 team. I'm a big fan of their coaching staff and their wrestlers. I suppose when people see positive gains in places they are unfamiliar with they get defensive and their insecurities come out. For some reason Rutgers has been for a few years now a lightning rod for those insecure wrestling fans. But the truth is New Jersey remains a wealthy, vibrant state that also consistently produces quality high school wrestlers from nearly every county, which is reflected in the competitiveness of all three D1 garden state programs. You can nit pick and poke holes in Rutgers just like you can any program, and if that's what you enjoy doing then have fun I guess. seems like a miserable existence to me but as long as I don't have to live it, ya'll can go for it!

    Comparing desanto to nickal is both comical and highly disingenuous

    Desanto Team Point

    I think the unsportsmanlike call came from a face mush right after the whistle, which got the crowd to start booing him, so he carried on... Some people strive win and lose with grace. Other people are DeSanto. At least he's consistent.

    First off, kudos to the staff, wrestlers and all involved to get the program where it is today. Hope this is viewed as constructive critique. As a fan I want them to ascend higher in the B10 but with conduct, recruiting, etc have concerns if they are on the right path. Agree, disagree? Observations from matches over the weekend: -prior to match OSU team on the mat, drilling, moving with purpose, Smith watching the entire time on side of mat -prior to match RU coaches talking and mingling with those in the crowd, not all the team on the mat, most just wasting energy walking around in circles -for Ashnault match skirmish at the end - Smith chewed out his kid not once as he came off the match, but another as he walked he away and called him back again ( I watched it) He was major league pissed at him. Goodale in his presser passes off Ashnault gun action as having fun, no big deal. -Smith mentioned he likes coming up here because good for recruiting too. Does RU recruit down there? -Suriano showboating after win in WI match that 2 more days until the big match. Both their top guys do this kind of crap. I notice most other teams (coaches and wrestlers) in the B10 (especially those at the top) conduct themselves in a more professional and purposeful manner. Recruiting - who are they landing? Need more than 2 AA's to be a real solid competitive team in the B10. Ash was only signature recruit, Suriano they got lucky with. Granted the studs who can go anywhere will be tough to keep home but how come solid AA's such as say a McFadden go elsewhere? Why'd Lewis go to VT, Howard going to PSU? RU needs like 5 AA's to get to next level.

    Yeah I think we all understand the big picture. JB should be testing the waters at 79kg anyways. I figure if he loses the Olympic spot at 74kg, he can bump up and be in the conversation to win a World title at 79kg for 2020 to cap off a stellar career (assuming they still hold Worlds like 2016).

    Desanto Team Point

    You would probably sound like a dork as well if immediately after winning yourself and your team a National Title you have uberdork Quint Kessenich jamming a mike in your face after one of the most emotional moments of your life. For the record I found it kinda dorky as well, but ESPN could let a kid celebrate with family for 5 minutes then interview a kid.

    Indiana vs Maryland - Wow, just wow

    This was a great effort by the Indiana squad. And the official dedication to their new facility.

    Somewhere, tbar just felt a tingle in his junk, letting him know somebody said something that might not be 100% positive about Penn State.

    Stoll #1?

    Actually, it is far more the fans of other schools and some fans of your school that feel that way. Cael Sanderson doesn't feel that way and the evidence for that statement is strong. His teams show up and wrestle every dual to win. You'll be hard pressed to find too many PSU fans that will say they think duals don't matter either. And besides what they say, their actions say they think duals do matter. How many sell outs in a row for Penn State? A great many now. It isn't my issue that some fans are disgruntled their team doesn't win so they take up this PHONY mantra.

    Iowa at NCAA's

    125: Spencer Lee - Drew Mattin - Obviously huge disparity of points here 133: Stevan Micic - Austin Desanto - Lopsided in favor of Micic, but could be minimized if Micic finishes near the bottom of his probability (3rd) and Desanto maxes out his (5thish), plus Desanto is big on bonus 141: Max Murin - Kanen Storr - I'm not totally sold on Storr, but then, I'm not totally sold on Murin, and Storr is better thusfar. In favor of Storr. 149: Pat Lugo - Malik Amine - Amine is tough, but not on Lugo's level, but Lugo has not shown himself to be any kind of high AA threat. In favor of Lugo, but anyone who doesn't AA, the difference is minimal 157: Kaleb Young - Alex Pantaleo - Pantaleo has the better results and history, but he has looked actively bad this year at times. Young has looked good at times, but has slow feet to me. Still favor Pantaleo. 165: Alex Marinelli - Logan Massa - Alex Marinelli has just looked much better. Decent edge to Marinelli 174: Mitch Bowman - Myles Amine - Huge edge to Michigan. 184: Cash Wilcke - Reece Hughes - Huge edge to Iowa in terms of quality, although mitigated by Wilcke being a low AA threat,which doesn't score a whole lot. 197: Jacob Warner - Jackson Striggow - Warner is the much better wrestler, but also maybe a total head case. If you told me that Warner finished third or that he went 0-2, I wouldn't be shocked. Big edge to Iowa, though temperamental. HW: Sam Stoll - Mason Parris - Parris is a true freshman wrestling the man weight. If I'm guessing Pantaleo will be fine by the end of the year, I have to think the same for Stoll. Advantage Iowa. Iowa has the advantage at (arguably) 7 weights over Michigan. I still feel like a lot has to go wrong for Iowa and right for Michigan for Michigan to pass Iowa. None of Michigan's guys are threats for huge points except for Micic and Amine.

    Best High School Team Ever?

    I’d be more interested if the topic was “Best Public High School Team Ever”....

    I think there is some truth to some of these natural approaches, but a lot of them it simply is the placebo effect. Dake is obviously a smart guy and he admits it could simply be the placebo effect. But even if it is, as long as it makes him feel good, I say go for it. You’ve got to commend his discipline and his commitment to doing all the little things right. He’s got to be one of the most discipline guys I’ve ever seen. Ever notice how low he stays in his stance, and that he always makes contact with his head first and never reaches? That is very impressive that he will not compromise his position
