  1. I’d be more interested if the topic was “Best Public High School Team Ever”....
  2. ......IF he can make 125 again and/or on consecutive days
  3. Took 2 full periods before the announcers knew who the Iowa wrestler was....
  4. Chris Myers’ yelling = incoherent, unintelligible babbling. The best part about his ramblings was he was completely oblivious to his absurd lunacy. Steroids rot your brains, kids...
  5. My son and I were going to go, however... - the venue sucked (terrible for wrestling in general) - there were only 5 collegiate men’s matches - traffic on I-70 sucks on Friday (and every other day) Whoever was responsible for organizing this from the NWCA needs to be reassigned and/or terminated. Pathetic attempt of a showcase event on every level.
  6. Illinois’ 149 was dq’d for 4 “hands-to-face” calls, and I believe the 197 got a call in OT to lose as well It will be interesting to see how this new rule will affect matches/duals this year
  7. It was quite an event, for the dozens in attendance....
  8. Same here. At my son’s club practice last couple of weeks (in Parker) there has been no mention at all from the coaches - who are all D1 wrestlers and AA’s. I’m the only one who is bringing up.
  9. 6 days before the event and <50% of the lineup has been announced. Any chance this thing is cancelled?
  10. So far, this is who’s been announced... 133 - Tariq Wilson/Seth Gross 141 - Hoey McKenna/Kaid Brock 174 - Jacobe Smith/Myles Amine 184 - Taylor Venz/Max Dean Hwt - Derek White/??? Kinda weird that the entire lineup has yet to be set, a little over a week beforehand. Friday afternoon traffic on I-70 in Denver is not fun, I hope it’s worth it...
  11. It’s gonna be a while before he’s in college....
  12. Interestling, I was at my son’s club practice last week (in suburban Denver) and mentioned this coming up, and none of the dads (who claim to be big college fans) even knew this was happening in Denver. I probably recruited at least 5/6 parents + kids to go, but it’s kinda sad and alarming that this event isn’t being promoted more heavily through our club (one of the larger ones in CO with a number of Div 1 AA’s coaching) and other clubs. We’ll definitely be there, however....
  13. We’ll, it’s in Denver this year. UNC and Air Force (and sorta Wyoming) aren’t exactly traditional collegiate wrestling hotbeds....
  14. Their non-con dual schedule includes... SIUE Princeton Bakersfield KSU Buffalo UVU .....not exactly the toughest competition
  15. First and foremost, listening to Killdozer is a recipe for disaster.....
  16. This is surprisingly, maybe he just wanted to finish college close to home. I can’t imagine any other reason - the Mizzou room is much tougher, and they have a shot at a team trophy. ISU has no shot at anything as a team, and the room for him will be a joke
  17. He’ll be 25 at the NCAA’s his “senior” year, not unlike Miklus next year. It will be interesting to see how they hold focus and motivation at the age when many graduate law school. As a Mizzou alum I’m glad to see them stick around and have the opportunity to continue, it’s just odd to have 1, let alone 2, guys on the same team have a 7 yr post-high school career
  18. Looks as though Grant Leeth is getting 2 additional years of eligibility, through 2020-21....
  19. TSU is one of the top academic schools in MO. They don’t offer any athletic scholarships for wrestling, nor do they pay any of their asst wresting coaches. One of the major factors in the programs’ dismissal, pitched to the student/athletes, was too many of them were on academic scholarship and not paying enough “of their share” back to the school. Disgraceful
  20. Mine, obviously, refers to the transcending limitations of the human condition....
  21. Of course, he (Urschel), made around $1.8 mln in his time in the league. Not exactly chump change. And a 6-figure salary ain’t what it used to be....
