  1. This is spot-on. It falls on the coach and his attached AD. Some coaches won't even coach, some dedicate their lives to the program and understand the importance of business.
  2. I recall OrSU being fairly expensive for out of staters. Using jdalus formula, their endowment would pay for 4 scholarships.
  3. Julie's long lost great-grandson makes his triumphant return!
  4. Realistically, the last two years have ended the same - tie score, criteria for Sidakov. No discernible decline for JB. The result will be disappointingly familiar for JB if he doesn't change something up, but he is definitely not over the hill.
  5. As did UConn abd Colo State has suspended all FB activities for various reasons. The entire SEC area is exploding with COVID. No Bueno.
  6. I was going to mention Saitiev, but I couldn't come up with a physical gift bestowed upon him. Did you come up with one?
  7. Alternative headline - Burroughs new favorite as Sidakov loses his edge!
  8. Both very good matches. Sidakov is very consistent. Great shots from space. That is supposed to be Burroughs' game.
  9. Elite being a world team member? Like this: https://www.teamusa.org/usa-wrestling/team-usa/national-team-bios So many I know next to nothing about.
  10. Can you put a finer point on 'Elite" wrestler? What type of background do most elite wrestlers come from? Seems middle class/lower middle class to me.
  11. In my experience, about 90% of Scots can hold their liquor. This can be extended to all drug users. So, 9 x 1.6 = 14.4% of the adult population of Scotland are non-problem drug users. That is not that bad.
  12. Yes. Every person between the ages of 14 and 21 in every metropolitan area over the population of 250,000 people is required by law to have a Yankee flat bill. Who said anything about common rabbit skin hats?
  13. None - and they don't get criticized for that.
  14. Why? Yankee flat bills are common to everyone in urban areas.
  15. I wonder which stage of the recruiting process goes wrong for Iowa. It is not the rural nature of Iowa City since other sports recruit diverse teams. Maybe TnT can't tone it down in the living room. I've heard Iowa doesn't award full scholarships, so that might play a role. Also, as others have mentioned, I imagine freshly tanned rabbit skin hats aren't as attractive as a Yankees flat bill to everyone.
  16. This is the same guy that spent years at NLWC?
  17. This is a taboo subject for some. That doesn't make it irrelevant. Interesting differences between Iowa football and wrestling. Doubtful a B10 football team could stay in a game without some diversity. So they do what is necessary to field a competitive team. They get well deserved flack for being unable to deal with diverse people. The wrestling team, on the other hand, is more than competitive without diversity. So they aren't pressured to be multicultural and then don't get flack for being unable to handle diversity. This also has its shortcomiings, but nobody cares about that.
  18. In the west, Latinos make up a huge portion of wrestlers.
  19. Also, Zalesky must have had a lot of responsibility in that department.
  20. Too close in age, at least for Joe. They were competing themselves during that time. They certainly weren't recruiting on their own. Obviously Gable was successful at recruiting a wide variety of people.
  21. Yeah, they were in their twenties. I doubt they played a role in recruiting them.
  22. Different generation, coaches, culture. Only the singlet design remains. Although, I assume, Chris Campbell's was made of wool.
  23. Have you not read the last two pages? If they are indeed recruiting minorities, they are unsuccessful. Why? It is a legit question. Maybe it is Iowa city, but other sports at Iowa don't look like the proverbial sore thumb. Iowa is a great place for wrestling.. Most recruits want athletic opportunities more than anything else. It is very odd.
