    So to be a D-l coach you have to have better communication skills than to be a D-ll coach? Boy, D-lll coaches must be borderline illiterate.

    What I meant is that most of the truly elite wrestlers are concentrated in a handful of teams today. When Iowa was winning there was Iowa, then the rest of the talent was spread out much thinner. In other words, winning 9 in a row is harder now than back then.

    It is a long season. I for one care about student athletes getting a good education. I care about family. Plasmodium’s point about a “real thanksgiving” isn’t about Turkey it’s about family. I think a shorter season with a few less road trips and more time for holidays will be an improvement in the lives and futures of the student athletes.

    I interpreted that to mean he feels there are comparatively fewer competitive teams today than Gable era .  I feel the field is more or less the same.

    Yep.  I was following you. I know that cop.  He has a checkered past and we both saw the cars flying by us.

    That's because Taylor is bitter about J'den being better than him. But Taylor is better than Yazdani, so he can be nice to him.

    Good Luck.
    P.S. Thanks for your behind the scenes work making those coaching changes.  Keep up the good work.

    When this incident occurred,  there were multiple pictures of people wrestling last season in NJ with hair as long or longer than his.  It is not a question of knowing anything, it is simply acknowledging reality.   Nothing to see here.

    There were multiple counter examples of others with long hair wrestling in NJ.  Robert Howard, for example.  This kid was singled out, so that gets addressed.  They changed the rule so it doesn't happen again.  Change the channel.

    Personally, I don't like silence.  I rather have the white noise of the crowd than silence.

    Yeah hes super solid and could beat anyone or lose to anyone. (Outside of the top 4) but I see the size being an issue. Obviously he's not Pantaleo but I see it going similar. If youd just like him in the field totally understand. But if anything was going to keep him from competing at 100% or the last chance was a huge hurdle for him to get to. I'd say "why bother" I do think he has a solid future at 70kg though

    Iowa turned a guy, who was only a state runner up his senior year, into a 2 time ncaa champion, with 2 more years to go. How can you even compare the two.

    Me too!  I made a list!  Hooray!  That made my Christmas.  
    Seriously... glad to be a part of the Wrestling Forums, and have this "extended" family to bicker with over things that... well...quite frankly... take up way too much of my adult free time.  
    Now... back to work and training BJJ.  Merry Christmas fellas.

    I think Gable is just better now. And has more of a chance on the world stage.

    I think Lee is getting the Gross treatment from the Ferrel.
    He crunched a bunch of guys we dont expect to make the team. Good for him. I think most of us had him in that top 3 (Fix/Gillman) going in.... and nothing has changed. He could be our rep, but I'll go Fix.


    Agree on JO, Cox, Snyder....


    I think Dake hype continues to be overblown in the wake of him dominating. A terrible weight. I dont think he is terrible but had he not been able to go and Ringer/Zahid was the rep these past few years. We wouldve had similar results. (Outside of the Gadzi crushing) .... anyways
    JBs liability also overblown. We cant revel in his clutch gene when he wins in the last second then all of a sudden see it as a liability because the end result isnt a world title. Sidakov has gotten through Russia then JB/Chamizo, 2 world championships in a row... maybe hes just a murderer....

    I think as always itll be close, but I think as always JB come out the rep
