  1. Good point. NCAA results should count way less than a US Open or WTT result.

  3. Watching someone hold someone else down for two full minutes is pointless - pun intended.
  4. Scribe is right, Cael tied for 5th three years ago.
  5. Tsargush is a big enough douche to be comical, but not big enough to be dangerous. Check out 4:39 and 8:32 in their semi. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZDiocjP9AU
  6. Do you feel you could dominate this uber liberal left wing d1ckh3ad lemming in a no holds barred debate on any foreign policy topic of his choosing?
  7. This is the primary difference between Pitt and tOSU. rlw beat me to it :)
  8. Ryan Blees at 157 is a strong possibility.
  9. Anybody know if Pico's opponent is related to Alireza Yazdani? There are only a few Yazdanis in Foeldeak and they have the same coach listed (perhaps, national coach?). At any rate, he looks great and poised to make some noise on the senior circuit.
  10. Anyone else convinced that they know DF's true identity? I'm a little surprised that he hasn't been outed already.
  11. Interesting point. What do you think is the most important (I agree with you, by the way)? What have college coaches told you about competing in certain events and how they play a part in recruitment? Cael talks about it in his recent article on PennLIve. But every coach I know is pretty much the same. Do they love to wrestle? Do they have high goals? What kind of citizen are they? Grades? How do they compete? Do they try to score and dominate? Do they have a style of wrestling that will transition well to college? Some things that are successful at the high school level will struggle to ever find success at the next level. Coaches know this and recruit accordingly. You don't need to go to Fargo. But you do need to compete and Fargo is a great opportunity to do so. But events are not what coaches are looking for. They are looking for individuals with the right skill/mind set. Most coaches do ask if kids are going to Fargo. But if they aren't, it doesn't rule them out. It just means they have to find another avenue to evaluate them. We have kids move on to programs every year and none of them have gone to any Cadet/Junior events. Not that they wouldn't like to, but like I said, VALUE is more important than price or experience. If you want to wrestle at the next level, here's a short list: 1. Love to wrestle and train 2. Reach out to schools early and let them know your intentions 3. Have goals and articulate those goals 4. Have the grades/scores to go along with 5. Let them see you train/compete 6. Be realistic about what to expect scholarship/aid wise It's not that difficult really. If those 6 bases are covered, almost everyone can find somewhere to wrestle in college, if you are willing to go where it takes you. Where do your guys get the competition that the coaches need to evaluate them objectively?
  12. Cael's ankle picks are set up via the same collar ties and hand fighting that Schultz and Banach used. Cael would get guys off balance and leaning thru the use of hand fighting, collar ties and circling and then he'd reach for an ankle that was only about a foot away from his hand. Has anyone ever consistently prevented Cael from getting the ankle pick? Sajidov
  13. My bad. I thought you specified folkstyle. Is competition relevant?
  14. good point. i don't think sanderson would beat banach in folk either. Really? The only undefeated folkstyle guy ever who won (while still basically wrestling like a folkstyler) an Olympic title a couple years outta college? Interesting... Marcus LeVesseur was also undefeated and a four timer.
  15. MS doesn't look vulnerable to an ankle pick.
  16. In free, kj ms cs In folk, ms cs kj

  19. Football leaving the athletic departments will herald the end of NCAA sports.
