    Plasmodium reacted to Lurker in When have referees dictated match outcomes?   
    Agreed and argued that in here to ad nauseam.  Nolf lifting his foot up right before his hand touched the mat was probably one of the more amazing things he did in his college career.

    Plasmodium reacted to MedicineMan in SPOILER: Zain Retherford vs Conor McGregor TWO   
    Same result as last year, 1st round tap out by McGregor via Rear Naked Ear Lock.

    Plasmodium reacted to MDogg in Maryland - Two Piece Uniform   
    Those on this board claiming that younger wrestlers love singlets and it will hurt the sport if we move BACK toward a 2 piece uniform are on another planet. Every survey and study that has been done on the matter overwhelmingly indicates that the singlet is a deterrence to participation at the youth (especially jr high) levels. Below is one quick example.
    I’ll never understand the deep attachment some people on this site have to the singlet in the face of overwhelming evidence that it’s a deterrent to growing our sport...or perhaps just stemming the decline. 
    The singlet defenders are now at the point of making laundry based arguments when the “overwhelming majority” of 8,500 youth coaches say singlets are a deterrent to participation.

    Plasmodium reacted to HurricaneWrestling2 in Reactions vs Posts ratio   
    Although my point total is far below many others, I still have a community reputation rating of "excellent."  That's one thing I like about this forum, the low standards.

    Plasmodium reacted to TBar1977 in Team Race   
    If Cassar and Berge were at 100 percent I'd favor PSU. As it is, they would need a lot of those conceivable falters from Iowa to actually happen and that is unlikely. PSU could have 5 champs and Iowa can still beat them.

    Plasmodium reacted to Mokoma in Team Race   
    Agreed he will be opposite of Hall, but any of Kutler, Steiert, Lydy and Labriola are capable of beating him on the right day.   I predict he's in the finals against Hall, but a finish of 3rd-5th wouldn't shock me either.

    Plasmodium reacted to Crotalus in Oklahoma State at Iowa - Potential Blowout by the Hawkeyes?   
    I would say Lewallen/Lugo is a 50/50 match. And I might even favor Boo ever so slightly. But the others don't seem to match up well.

    Apart from JB directly beating him each and every time they have wrestled and JB being far more accomplished in every quantifiable way, nothing.

    Depends what age you talking about. 10,11,12,13,14 age wrestlers dont bother they self cuting weight so they can wrestle even every month.

    @grimo - Does your nephew's school sponsor sports of any kind?
    Also, it must be very difficult for a young wrestler to get meaningful competition.  I can imagine the tournaments are packed with really good wrestlers, so most guys get only 1 or 2 matches per tournament and that means fewer than 10 matches per year.

    I haven't seen evidence of anything.  I'll confess handwritten transcripts are fascinating  to me.  I'd love to see 'em.  I wonder what the cumulative GPA on those would be?!

    You understand the process.  Your nephew also needs to be a good student.  That can open a lot of doors.  Scholarships are increased by success on the mat, being a good student and a good citizen.
