    Yes. One of a few legit things on his resume. Too bad he leaves off other things we know about in the wrestling community like 6 combined months at 2 top 5 college programs, not because he left...he got shown the door. "IF" he did resign from either it was because a. he was told he would be terminated because you can't coach a juco in Kansas while being in Cali (although we might need to credit him for creating Zoom calls). b. threatening to show pictures of a wrestler's mom if he entered the tranfer portal didn't sit well at a Jesuit University. Both were top 5 teams in NJCAA and DII respectively. GOOGLE! I really wish we had SAFE SPORT or something like Character Check through NWCA for College hires. We need legit people that care, invest, stay in the communities and grow the sport. I know we have horrendous pay at the non DI levels in our sport and that goes beyond head coaches too. The amount of vacancies out there for 2 and 4 year programs in the "hotbed" midwest is assinine, but so is what somehead and assistant coaches get paid. I would love to see every school truly invest in wrestling like Basketball/Women's Basketball. Less players yet more coaches (many times paid, not a partial gig either) We need benefits and more. We need to create a pool of wrestlers interested in coaching...at the end of the year (or hell now), every coach in the country at the college 4 year level needs to sit down and find out who all on their team might want to get into coaching. Send me the dam list...we have so many interim heads, so many just graduated head coaches and so much more. We have positions at our colleges for guys/gals that dedicated 4 years to a program. But colleges need to start paying better than what they are, because nobody wants to come up from the high school ranks if you are paying 15 - 20 k less a year for more headaches and longer seasons!

    I wrestled in it in 2002 at 197. Previous weekend was brutal... both our 197 guys got knee injuries. I was weighing 211 and drew Kevin Hoy of Air Force at the OU Open. Back then no desent plan, so I cut down to 197 and coach took me. I drew a tough Wisconsin guy first round that was ranked 18th or something at the time, and then lost to an Iowa Central guy in the consos. Got to watch a lot of dam good wrestling. Would love to get back there to work the event as a play by play guy if ever given the opportunity.

    Seabass to 125

    Yeah I don’t think anyone is actually expecting him to pay. Just doesn’t want to let him forget that he didn’t.

    Oregon State and UVU are wrestling in Nampa (by Boise) in January to bring more exposure to wrestling in the valley. I never thought we would have to do that in the valley. CP and Williams want BSU wrestling back and they hope it will help in that effort.

    Agreed, Yazdani is a bit too perfect and boring sometimes lol. But he's a humble servant of Iran and works hard to make his dear friends happy and that's nice. Zare is extremely young but works so hard to improve after setbacks and is a bit cocky, not in a disrespectful American way but in his own confident fun way, and I like that.

    NIL Issues in Happy Valley?

    I dunno. I think 1032004 should report Yianni to the NCAA.

    Yazdani and Zare have differing characters/styles also. Yazdani Is the type of character that on most occasions does the right thing, says the right thing and perhaps in that respect is very much conventional and coforms with the role what Iranians want to see in wrestling Champion. Zare seems to have more personality and interested in pushing the boundaries a bit which make him a bit more colourful compared to Yazdani. But I guess we are lucky to have both as elite wrestlers.

    I think they limited teams to only 2 World Team members. so I assume that wasn't possible. I think the league starts in 2 or 3 days in 4 groups in 4 different towns. the league's poster
