    NLWC Event - PSU's future

    Oof. That means what is MY optimal lineup. 125) Lee TF Howard Iowa 5-0 133) Bravo-Young DEC Desanto Iowa 5-3 141) N.Lee DEC Eirmann Penn State 6-5 149) Verkleeren DEC Murin Penn State 9-5 157) K.Brands DEC J.Lee Penn State 9-8 165) Marinelli DEC Berge Iowa 11-9 174) Kemererererr DEC Starocci Iowa 14-9 184) Brooks DEC Assad Iowa 14-12 197) Warner DEC Beard Iowa 17-12 285) Kerkvliet DEC Cassiopi Iowa 17-15 Iowa we know their lineup. Only question is who goes 141/149. Penn State has many more options. Bartlett at 141 and N.Lee at 149 is one of them, but I believe it hurts them here. Kerk could pin Cass. Beard could beat Warner. Brooks could bonus Assad(yep). Starocco could beat Kemererererr(also yep). Marinelli could bonu ls Berge, but Berge healthy at 165 could be a sleeper AA for then. J.Lee(or Verk?) could beat K.Brands. Lee could Major or worse Murin at 141 or 149, and beat Eirmann soundly at '19 Senior Nattys. Verk could be at 157 if Bartlett is in and could lose or win any match, ever. Bartlett could be at 141 and is an immediate High AA threat there. RBY is Tier 1 at 133 and I believe is in Desanto's head now. Lee with techfall whoever Penn State outs out. Howard isn't on his level nor is Meredith.

    If only wrestling was popular

    pro leagues have been tried before... in the past, our wrestlers have not wanted to wrestle... FLO has been offering real money and the wrestlers are starting to come around... even if it just coming out of "retirement" to get a paycheck... there is a glimmer of hope...

    Khabib....wow

    Just my opinion here, but Jones is not undefeated. Yes his one loss was a DQ in a fight he was winning, but he was DQ’d for doing something illegal. He also has two controversial/close call victories. Then throw in the PED/drug issues. Khabib is in what has been regarded as the deepest division for sometime, undefeated, having just smashed all the top guys. Goat is all about opinion. But pretty hard to top what Khabib has done.

    About the booze

    I was talking about the combination of bevs I had last night, and how we were celebrating my father beating covid and getting him home thursday. JP commented to the effect that sounds like Pops is a pretty tough dude, and I kinda told him a little bit about how the whole journey went. The greatest mind in wrestling came in and had some....well not so nice things to say. Didn't bother me at all like he was attempting I just answered his not so kind questions, thread got deleted. But anyway back the booze. Have had the pork butt working for a couple hours now for some pulled pork sammiches tonight. Trying to decide what the selection should be this evening to go along with it.

    Best Wrestlers in Old Dominion History

    I am unaware of the NCAA medals ranking system, however, I do know that my brother, Carl Ragland was Old Dominion's 1st National Champ. He won 1st place in the National Tournament in 1969, & was selected as the Most Outstanding Wrestler in the tournament. He also won the "Gorrarian" Award by having the most pins in the tournament. He finished 2nd in the nation in 1966. His overall record was 109-7-1. He was never pinned in his career. He was a 3 X Mason Dixon Outstanding Wrestler, Outstanding Wrestler in Towson Invitational, & Georgia Invitational tournaments - 1965, 2nd in Plebe & Wilkes Open - 1966, Eastern Regional Olympic Champ - 1968, ODC Outstanding Athlete - 1969, Outstanding Athlete by Virginia Beach Sports Club - 1969, Sigma Nu Fraternity Finalist of the Year Award - 1969, listed in "Outstanding College Athletes of America," 1969, highest won/loss percentage of any ODU wrestler in History with a 93% win ratio. He was selected into ODU Hall of Fame in 1983.

    Neither the right nor the left is the main problem. Their complete and total inability to work together is the main problem, has been for a long time, and is why we are where we are in just about every problem we have. The longer each focuses on blaming the other for our problems, instead of actually working to fix our problems, the problems are only going to continue to grow. and that’s a lot of problems.

    Khabib....wow

    I’d somewhat agree on most accounts. But the guy promised his mom he wasn’t fighting any more without his dad in his corner. And dad has passed away. Khabib’s been pretty firm on honoring his family and religion, so I say this one likely sticks based on the ethics he’s always shown.

    Khabib....wow

    Wow is right. I'm just so impressed with Khabib's smooth and lightening quick transitions when he grapples. That looked unbelievably easy how he hit that triangle submission. Seems like he's getting better and better. As far as the first round, have to give Justin credit on those leg kicks. They were powerful and had to hurt but appeared like it just increased Khabib's intensity as Khabib stalked him down even more. Also, Khabib was just about to hit a nasty submission hold but the bell rang to end the first round. Khabib has been one of my favorite athletes in all of sports and I just loved watching all his Dagestani videos, the Will Harris documentaries (loved those) and of course his fights. Also got a big kick hearing Cormier's (and others) stories about Khabib's younger days when he first arrived at AKA and couldn't strike well and couldn't speak much English. To me, Khabib was still improving and may be at his very best right now. Total respect in his decision to retire and I if I had a vote, I'd pick Khabib as mma's GOAT.

    The dearth of information

    Nobody knows anything. That's why there's no news. Anything anyone would say would be so speculative as to be worthless. Look on the bright side. There was an NLWC event, the US Nationals, another NLWC event, Beat the Streets, and the Flo Chamizo/Dake thing. There were a lot of college wrestlers in those events! Plus, the HWC thing is coming up soon, the Flo 195 lb. bracket is next weekend, and the JB/Zahid match two weeks after that. I think we've probably gotten more high level wrestling in the last two months or so than we usually do this time of year. Of course, that will all change when November rolls around and there's no college wrestling, but we can enjoy what we've gotten.

    NLWC Event - PSU's future

    I don't know why I said College instead of last year of high school for 125. Definite brain fart on my part. Still, everything I read said he makes 133 rather easily and Meredith was a pretty decent sized 141 that has been wrestling 65kg(143). So I would think it is safe to assume he is significantly smaller. Now, I DID edit my post to say that DeSanto may very well be moving to 141 and that would make this matchup more understandable.

    I'm pretty sure he had compartment syndrome and almost lost his arm. Total freak injury. He was off the mat for a very long time and is working his way back. Making the semis at super 32 is a pretty impressive jump from what he was able to do last year when he first came back.

    NCAA D I Wrestling in a dire place

    Men's volleyball at the D I and D II level are small, which is why they combine for a national tournament. However, D III has their own NCAA Championship because they have 111 schools that sponsor the sport. That's a decent amount, much like D III wrestling. Men's gymnastics hasn't been relevant in years. The one thing that wrestling has that those 2 sports don't have is big participation numbers at the high school level. Almost 250k boys wrestle which is far ahead of boys volleyball.

    LOL, I was also going to add to my post, well no **** Covington is best case scenario, wasn't he a champion and currently ranked #1? I doubt anyone other than Blue Dragons/PD2 really expects Downey to be a champion. But it wouldn't surprise me to see him be a middle of the road/above average UFC guy.

    I’m working on expanding the site now to include all results for men’s freestyle. So the database will include every match result across all weights from every international tournament. Because this is such a huge project, I’m reaching out for help. If anyone is willing, entering the data is very simple but time consuming. It takes about 1-2 hours per tournament. Let me know if you’re willing to help and I’ll guide you through our data entry process.

Happy for Dan. This should have been given to him years ago. Its still politically motived, but I doubt it swings any voters anyways.

    195 Bracket...

    No, he beat Canada, Brazil, Peru, and Mexico to win his bracket. When you stack up his international freestyle resume against the four guys already named in the tournament (Dean, Brooks, Jackson, and Foster), he is more credentialed than at least two of them. He would be more than competitive with the rest of the field, imo.
