  1. Still not officially a redshirt, but possibly not for long - Mason Parris just won the MSU Open 285 division, pinning CMU's Stencel in the finals.

    Michigan Lineup?

    I think you've got a pretty good overview of things now. A lot of questions will be answered in the intrasquad dual on the 29th. A few thoughts: 125: Mattin had a very good true freshman season while Assad allowed himself to heal. The latter was doing reasonably well in summer freestyle competition, so it remains to be seen. If Mattin continues where he left off, I think he's a serious AA candidate. 141: Storr definitely the better competitor between him and Profaci, both already having been tested in competition. We'll see if Silva or Freeman are in a position to contend. 149: Definitely the most contested weight. I'd kinda like to see Malik come back and finally emerge in his last year. 165: I REALLY hope we won't see like brother like brother. 174: I thought Amine gave Valencia all he could handle this past March in the semis. A stud. 197: Another contested weight with Striggow already battle tested. HWT: While it's always possible, I don't think we'll see Parris starting as a true frosh. Coon was truly extraordinary in going to the #1 ranking at HWT during his freshman season, and was a lot bigger than Parris. Nemec and Ready probably aren't AA caliber at this point, but one of them should at least be competent.
  3. Looking forward to seeing what happens: https://www.cliffkeenwrestlingclub.com/sergei-beloglazov-named-cliff-keen-wc-head-coach/

    Worst Wrestler Turned Great College Coach

    "Well over 6 feet tall, he weighed 127 pounds and was so frail that he was reluctant to appear on the streets of New Haven, Connecticut. His doctor told him he had less than a year to live." Was he actually ill with something such that his doctor told him of his life expectancy? Quite a turnaround!

    I don't think J Robinson ever placed for Oklahoma State.

    Hearing Aids

    If he has any interest at all in it, plastic surgery might be an option to help fix his ears for the hearing aids.

    Cormier vs Lesnar

    Not sure if I'm really looking forward to it. I've never liked Lesnar as an MMA fighter, as his heart's never really been into the sport, and tonight's grandstanding just felt WWE all the way. http://www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/24033997/brock-lesnar-cageside-ufc-226-challenges-daniel-cormier

    Now they have the audacity to say that they cannot bring back the programs because they no longer have enough players after they forced them to look elsewhere! https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2018/07/03/emu-teams-eliminated-court/754413002/

    Applaud the Refs

    The ref might not have been at a good angle to see that both of blue's shoulders clearly touched the mat for enough time to score a fall. But how in the world did they say that red was pinned?
  17. In terms of heavyweights, I think the best comparison is to Mocco. Both had pretty much won everything there was to win at the high school/juniors level, and both won college level tournaments while still in high school. When compared to other high school wrestlers regardless of weight, usually the measuring stick is how well they did against competition above their level. The most prodigious high schoolers would probably be guys like Jimmy Carr, Dave Schultz, Cary Kolat, Henry Cejudo, and Aaron Pico, who all had significant wins against high level college wrestlers (in Carr's case, world level competition) while still in high school. Yeah, I know some of those guys didn't go on to wrestle college. Gable Steveson is great, but I don't think he's quite to their level just yet.

    Oregon State Fiasco

    Attacking, mocking or bullying someone because of their beliefs is one thing, but just disagreeing with someone is grounds for dismissal? I think not. That's really the issue over Alshujery's and Roberts' conversation: was it a respectful differing of opinion, or did it go into the realm of hate and bigotry? From the article, it's still not completely clear, as each person presented a different version of what was said and more importantly, how it was said. And if a college student doesn't understand science, religious or not, that's their problem - go off and learn about science.

    Dusty Harless - Any of you guys know of him?

    I saw that episode as well, but hadn't heard of him at the time. http://truecrimetruant.com/index.php/2017/03/09/dusty-harless-death-by-testosterone/

    What's Mike Mena doing these days? He was the Hoosier assistant who I thought should have been given the job.

    Schools you’d like to see add wrestling

    Interesting. I recall awhile back on this forum that the subject of Cal Berkeley bringing back wrestling came up, given that the AD was a former wrestler. Someone here (Pinnum?) said that it would never happen basically because it would be too financially and politically difficult to achieve given the way the school's athletic department was structured. I wonder if it's the same at USC.
