  1. There are two idiot trolls on this thread who feel compelled to insult Tom Ryan for his beliefs and for his coaching abilities. Two gutless little kids who feel free to type away, but would never have the stuff to come up to any of Tom's wrestlers and ask them what they think of their coach. Let alone, Tom himself. The first troll is merely ignorant, and the second one, who is posting away every 5 minutes about anti-vax and other bs, makes the first one look like a Fulbright Scholar.
  2. I'm guessing you're two digits. The first number ain't round on the top.
  3. Yep...you're touching a third rail with your left-wing atheist nonsense. Tervel took the coaching job when Stieber was still competing. Tom Ryan is a better man than most people could ever hope to be. Duke Ellington: "When anyone says to me that Art Tatum plays too many notes, I immediately dismiss of them in my mind."
  4. Snyder did pretty well at Ohio State with Tervel in the room. Tervel's still there....
  5. If OSU wrestling didn't cost the University any money, then there are two possibilities: 1) It broke exactly even. 2) It turned a profit.
  6. "According to operating budgets Ohio State shares with the NCAA, football represented nearly $90 million of the athletic department’s $185 million in revenue in 2017, the most recent year with data available. That year, athletics expenses totaled $173 million, leaving the school with an athletics surplus of around $12 million. Other sports don't bring in any money for the department. In fact, every sport besides football, men's basketball and wrestling actually costs Ohio State money." https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2019/04/16/take-me-out-to-the-ballgame-heres-how-spring.html
  7. I'd rather that Snyder train elsewhere and win gold than stay and get silver or bronze. Of course, it could be the reverse...we're not going to know. Good luck to him. He's great for wrestling no matter where he trains.
  8. I know a top coach who couldn't wrestle at states his senior year. Want to go down that road?
  9. "They’ll be talking about Sanderson, too, who has turned Penn State from a traditionally strong program into a powerhouse, winning the past three NCAA titles. He couldn’t have done it without Taylor, who had committed to Iowa State when Sanderson coached there but got a release to follow Sanderson to Penn State, or without Ruth, who had been recruited by former coach Troy Sunderland and who swears he didn’t even know who Sanderson was (“the guy whose name is on my shoes …”) but decided, of course, to stay." https://pennstatermag.com/tag/cael-sanderson/

  11. He's a real good man, as is his father. Wish him all the best.
  12. It's amazing how threads can stray...

  14. After countless reviews, who really knows the correct outcome of that 2nd match? That's right. No one. Therein lies the problem. Let the courts wrestle with it. They'll come up with a decision, and we'll nod our heads and move on. Such is our sport.
  15. I'd be happy to sit down to a cold can of Gable, while my wife reads a story to the girls:
  16. The battle 'tween Pepsi and Coke, Is thought to be some kind of joke, Both are good when they're cold, When warm they're unsold, Let's argue for free vs. folk!
  17. Madonna was there, watching the weigh-in closely:
  18. The bottom line: You, me and the refs can't agree on these calls. Solution: Bring back the ball grab, but do it without the wrestling. If you grab the ball that says, "TEAM," you're in.
  19. Yep...the NFL constantly has to wait until the courts decide the outcomes.
  20. Let the courts decide what kind of team we have!
  21. As long as we're doing definitions: Bergman is a surname of German, Swedish, Dutch, and Yiddish origin meaning 'mountain man.' The lion slayer couldn't handle the mountain man that day...
  22. Is he a member of the US House of Representatives from Ohio's 4th District?
