    I hate when scholarships are used as an expense - they aren't a fixed cost. It's just sending money from one part of the school to another, while the part that takes gets the money to the school from the walk-ons doesn't get any credit for bringing kids in to the university bottom line. It's a one-way transaction that's a failure. Shell games. And don't tell die-hard football fans their sport doesn't make as much as they think they do - they'll automatically turn into some revenue seeking realist about our sport, but not their own. Distrust the admins until they take away your precious football.

    they said it was likely. it's a weird way to conduct your business as a governing body to be sure but it was information that eligible wrestlers had to act on. as someone who both thinks it's crazy that they are holding wrestling meets during a pandemic and also will watch any wrestling that's available i know that there is a lot screwed up about the whole process but "I didn't know" isn't a compelling argument to me for anyone who feels robbed of an opportunity to make the team.

    2020 Juniors Cancelled/Seniors is on!

    qualifying tournament and body of work are both valid ways of picking a team. i prefer qualifying tournament, but tbh, if there's going to be a qualifying tournament i'd also prefer that be made clear not framed as "likely." there's no right answer here because i think many wrestlers expected that either there would be no worlds and even if there were, USAW may not send a team. That said, Snyder showed up (to his dismay), so it's not like there was nobody there who would have been selected for the team if they opted out of an event they expected to be an optional event. This is a long and roundabout way of saying there are going to be angry people no matter what the final decision is but all possible answers have reasonable justifications. Sometimes life is funny like that. Apropos of absolutely nothing, Russian Nationals were held indoors to a packed house and nobody was wearing masks, to which I will give a rueful "lol". And as one final note, LJB is (a) not particularly wrong here since it is totally reasonable to want to reward the winners of a "likely" qualifying event and (b) it is completely irrelevant that he didn't wrestle. Neither did I. Polk High is in the rear view mirror, Team Al Bundy. A smelly old singlet in the bottom of a closet is not a requirement to talk about wrestling much less a requirement to talk about team qualification policy. However annoying his rejoinders are it is also at least clear that it is intentional because it is hilarious to him to watch the rest of you flail in response. Everyone else is going insane because they can't help but respond, which is a sickness. You actually can leave him hanging with the last word and you won't turn to dust. I promise.

    Interview with Trent Hillger

    I think as a 2X AA he has a chance. I'm not saying he will be favored anytime soon, but I think he has the potential to beat both these guys.

    Hilgers good, he just isn't as good as his contemporaries.

    Put the pom poms down. Hating on a kid for doing an interview isn't a great look.

    Russian nationals 2020 resutls

    That's not in my plans right now...maybe in the future. Currently I'm working on expanding the database with help from a web developer/software engineer. We'll have all match results from all of the international tournaments. So rather than just a database for the top 20, it'll be for every men's freestyle wrestler (beginning in 2018). After that, I'll expand rankings to non-olympic weights. And I am factoring in the Pro-events...Massa stays outside of the top 20, but man he's really close to top 20... Bekzod drops a few spots but stays in because of his overall resume.

    @ILisSTILLgood, Kozak and JHRose gave some solid advice. This place is a great start and add on from here. FLO is worth the fee in my opinion. Track serves a purpose. Not sure about ROFKIN. I don't have Twitter but I'm able to read much or all of what is written on there, just can't respond. ps Don't get into a, 'tug of war' with an immovable object.

    OKC was by far the worst venue recently IMO. Cleveland was FAR superior. I would look forward to going there again. Philly also did a good job. I will give Tulsa a chance and hope they do much better than OKC. I have been out of the loop for quite awhile due to being at my hunting cabin and bagging 600 lbs. of boned out vacuum sealed Moose meat. It was GREAT not hearing what was transpiring in this CRAZY world.

    The award was announced at a political rally right before an election. Hard to not view it as political.

    Why are you trying to pretend that a political move isn't political? Do you see any hypocrisy in starting the post with a partisan comment and then scolding others for being partisan? Unreal..... Happy for Dan. This should have been given to him years ago. Its still politically motived, but I doubt it swings any voters anyways.

    Who cares who gave it to him? Well deserved and I’m glad he received it in his home state. All you heard from Obama was basketball.

    I'm guessing (hoping) that you are pointing out correctly that the Orange Agent will use anything or anyone as a means to his pathological and narcissistic ends. It would great if Gable accepts the award but refuses to meet with the liar, racist, corrupt, and incompetent Fool and Con Man.

    This effectively kills California college wrestling at the D I level. It leaves 3 schools, Bakersfield (who is self funded) cal poly and cal baptist. How long those 3 schools will be around, nobody knows. the only thing that could be done is to get these private D I schools in Cali to add wrestling. There are some in the west coast conference. Otherwise, it’s pretty much over. Where will that leave Oregon st and Arizona st?
