  1. Awesome donation! He must have done very well at ExxonMobil and with his new companies. Great way to give back.
  2. I think it is too much of a wt cut. He would be better off at 165. Remember in HS he never had to lose much weight 5lbs. Now you are asking him to do this as an 18/19 year old and wrestle men in their 20's. Excessive wt loss especially water wt which still seems to happen at the college level reduces your effectiveness and reduces your speed, endurance and strength.
  3. He is a great talent. He will win a gold in freestyle for USA in 2016. As far as MMA goes there is big money there. However brain injury evidence similar to boxers is starting to emerge. Also add in choke outs. Many of these athletes will have dementia in there 60's and 70's.
  4. Great thread. It is a shame. It is political correctness at its worst. There should be a different safe harbor method. The one without using football athletes does make a lot of sense. It is really a shame that the SEC does not have wrestling as well as Ivy League schools Dartmouth and Yale.
  5. Chris: Can you please delete the pictures you posted about body fat. the caption was these people probably ate more than your wrestlers. Those pictures you used were from a Nazi concentration camp during world war II. The people depicted in those pictures maybe had a slice of bread and bowl of soup a day. It is an inappropriate picture to use.
  6. Delgado would have been pinned via freestyle in every one of his matches. Dieringer Tsiris taylor steiber retherford perry
  7. Nice competition. remember it was fundraiser for autism.
  8. Steroids have been around for a long time. In the late 70's I remember teammates talking about who was juicing on other teams. back than the big side affect was acne on your face and or body. so you knew who was on it. I had a teammate who separated his shoulder went on steroids was back after a two week rehab and stayed on it for the rest of the season. probably biggest 118lber in the country. today at the hs level. parents have told me their kids are on HGH because of their slow growth. meanwhile the kid is taller and bigger than the dad. HGH is very hard to test for. however there are long term severe side effects.
  9. Here is the difference between Brands and Sanderson coaching. Both were asked what there athletes need to do. Brands says they have to win and win the close matches. Sanderson says they have to score and keep scoring and the winning will take care of itself. One reply adds pressure to the athletes the other helps the athletes focus on the process and not the outcome which minimizes the pressure. Enough said Iowa is done.....................
  10. He is a great ambassador for our great sport of wrestling. He donates a ton of money as well. I have seen very few people talk with their wallets to support this sport. He does support the sport.
  11. I would say he got seriously injured. It sure looked like an acl or mcl tears and possible meniscus tear. really horrible injury. knees are meant to go one direction not diagonally. way too much action with knees bent in a dangerous manner. I think for the safety of the athletes it needs to stop.
  12. stacked wt class.... 3 studs battling it out to get to finals. OSU kid will win it all.
  13. It does not protect against concussions. not even football helmets can prevent that. however it does protect against cuts and scrapes on the far head. it should be required. you always see the Iowa guys with wraps around their heads from bad cuts. it allows head to head contact with much reduced injury to skin.
  14. They should allow the D2 and D3 champs in. You already have pigtails at NCAA D1. adding 2 more per weight would not change much. This was the norm in the 60's 70's and 80's not sure when they chamged it. Some very tough D3 schools academically Johns Hopkins, Univ of Chicago, Wesleyan, NYU, Williams and others. Not sure how someone said academics not on par with D1.
  15. Those boys earned the right to be punished like they did. You reap what you sow. This punishment is an important life lesson. Obviously the community, parents and SD are to blame as well for creating kids who would do this. The same thing happened in Pine Bush not involving wrestlers in which they tormented the few kids of a minority religion in the SD.
  16. great news and opportunity for ny state and ny/nj metro area wrestlers. they have a top coach as well.
  17. The fact that he is gone for the season and needs surgery means it is as bad as you can get for a hamstring injury. I hope he heals completely and is able to comeback and wrestle.
  18. He should be AA. He always had the talent. He is really crushing opponents. I would like to see him against green, reabulto, and Iowa champ.
  19. The party is coming to NY specifically NYC. Within 3-4 hr drive you have most of NJ/PA/NY covered. Be a part of it Dan. MSG is a great arena.
  20. NYC NCAA wrestling will be a blast. It will absolutely sell out. The NY metro area is 6 million Philadelphia metro area and major parts of PA and NJ and Northeast and upstate NY are all within 3-4 hour drives. If you do go to NYC. You must take in a broadway show. A bad Broadway show is better than the best movie you ever saw. You must go to 9/11 memorial, Chinatown, Little Italy, walk around washington square park which is where New York University is and of course Rockefeller Center in midtown. It would be a good idea to get yourself a Zagat's guide and one of those other books about inexpensive eats in NYC. Do not waist your mony on fast food. try different places. I will see you all there!!!!!!!!!
  21. The only stats that I remember was that the wrestler who gets the first takedown wins the match 90% of the time. The second was that the wrestler with the better grip strength won 70% of the time. i think these stats are more applicable to hs wrestling than college.
  22. I saw the dual on fox sports college broadcast. great dual very exciting. lester at 141 looks so sucked out. keeps gassing after 4 minutes. even maple looked gassed at end of his match. i notice he is still trying to muscle opponents over. much tougher at 149 for him to do that. howe perry match was great. you have love Chaid trying throwby entire match does it again with about 30 seconds left and a fatigued opponent has foot in wrong position and gets foot sweeped. how about that oklahoma heavy giving up 40-50 lbs all season and still prevails. can deirenger try another top move like a bar and half/wrist.
