    JasonBryant reacted to maligned in Junior Greco has a pulse...4th place after Day 1   
    There are no qualification procedures at worlds. What they are saying is a fact. There are always many more entries in Greco--as in many more countries involved and more countries with higher numbers of weights filled. It's tough to balance the argument. Iran, the US, and Russia are high-population nations, so of course their interest in freestyle means there will be more viewers at worlds--but is that enough to say it's "more popular" when more nations are invested in Greco than are invested in freestyle? As far as the International Olympic Committee is concerned, it's not. They love Greco. More nations trying to qualify for the Olympics. Broader distribution of medals across nations. We see everything through our own lens, but that's not necessarily the international lens.

    OK. I absolutely believe you. 
    I'm stupid. You're smart. I was wrong. You were right. You're the best. I'm the worst. You're very good looking. I'm not very attractive.

    JasonBryant reacted to Jimmy Cinnabon in THE Ohio State University - a dumb idea?   
    The™ idea of doing this just absurd.  Imagine the™ uproar when people end up getting sued because they bought a t-shirt that has the word “the”™ in it.  The™ whole idea by the™ Ohio State IP department is the™ silliest thing I’ve heard since Apple tried to trademark the™ letter “A”.

    JasonBryant reacted to PT in 2020 NCAA seating   
    There is another site visit coming up next week which there will be numerous people (myself included) that will finalize the layout.  Contrary to what some people want to say here, the fan experience is very important to the NCAA and so they are trying to find the perfect balance.  Will this be a different fan experience than before? Yes,  but it is also something that is pretty exciting to see and something that could be pretty special. IMO, The opportunity to have 40K plus fans to attend the championships is something we should celebrate.  It has been made pretty clear this is not something that will happen on a regular basis but a non-traditional site or location is something we might see once every bid cycle. Like anything in life, you can find the negative and say why its not going to work or look and find the positive and what it might bring.

    JasonBryant reacted to TripNSweep in Pan Am Games Draws   
    I watched a couple of the women's matches on replay.  I saw that one of the women's wrestlers from I think either Colombia or Venezuela hit that nice throw off an inside 2 on 1 that Kolat used to do a lot.  Went straight to the back and got the fall with it.  The women wrestlers are becoming a lot more technical than before, like 7-10 years ago. It used to just be a lot of matches were 30 seconds and whoever happened to be stronger and get a better position would get a quick fall with something you would see in a JV match. The US used to roll over them too pretty easily. Now I saw Conder win her first match by tech fall but the girl she wrestled didn't make it easy, it happened with like 20 seconds left in the match.  Good job to the other Pan Am coaches. Glad to see the depth and talent getting better.

    Jamaica’s Kevin Wallen wrestled at the Commonwealth Games last year at age 48. He’s been trying to build the wrestling federation there. Looks like Angus is part of that.

    Colder in Pittsburgh, Cleveland and 2 of the 3 days in St. Louis the last three years of Nationals. It’s brutally cold in January and February here. In Mid-March, it’s as temperate as most of the northern half of the country.
     
    Hard to argue with the other parts, though!

    JasonBryant reacted to Meatey in Rice University   
    Unfortunately we will never see Wrestling at Rice University.  I have talked to Tanner a number of times and he has even said that he would love to start a team there, but it is not going to happen.  Tanner is still involved in wrestling and he tries to stay involved as much as he can.   Last spring, he sponsored a Wrestling night at the Ball Park during a Rice baseball game and gave free tickets to Wrestlers that showed up with their club team.  It was not attended to well, but he is going to try and have a few other things to promote the sport.  
    Tanner is a very smart man (as you can tell by his academic success).  He is a great advocate for the sport and I do believe we will see Tanner moving on to a University where they do have wrestling at some point in his career.  As of now, I know he is enjoying his time at Rice and it has been good to have a former wrestler of his stature in the local community.
