    RIP Joe Seay...

    Still can't find any external links to an obituary. Anybody know?

    Is Ben OK?

    Brutal KO. Tried to get the leg, and ended up getting the knee flush!

    NCAA approves shorts

    I recall that Cornell used compression tops back in the 2003-04 season. I don't think I've seen much of them since them.

    I think a lot of guys will take an Olympic Redshirt

    Why did Snyder not recommend his course? Too much focus on wrestling alone and not enough time preparing for one's life/career after wrestling?

    Steveson in trouble

    At 1:17, the newscast mentions someone being the victim of a "sex crime with an object," which could mean a lot of different things.

    Transfer Success Stories?

    More specifically, he walked on to Michigan State after never qualifying for the state meet in high school, almost got cut from the team that first year, but hung in there and went on to place twice in Div. I.

    Transfer Success Stories?

    Just one: he won it his first year, and then finished third the next year before transferring to ISU.

    Transfer Success Stories?

    Chris Taylor was a JUCO national champ before transferring to Iowa State where he won two Div. I titles.

    Cael as a head coach - can he match Gable?

    JRob actually left after the '83-'84 season, a few years before they missed 10, which was '86-'87.
  12. Iowa fans are probably as impatient as ever, but if they were to get rid of Brands, who is the replacement?
  13. Wow - what a story. Hope the next few days goes well for him!

    Can't post any pix on this forum

    Try uploading them to a third party site (e.g. google) and then posting a link to that picture; see if that works.

    Ben Whitford

    Ben did enroll at Muskegon Community College back in Fall of 2014, and competed for them for at least part of that season. So I would think that would have started his Div. I clock back then. I don't know the exact NCAA rules for this situation, but at this point he might have part of one season left.

    197er bumping up and displacing the HWT

    While I can recall a bunch of 197 pounders who had much greater success after they moved up to HWT, it's hard to think of one who actually displaced an AA. Pretty rare aside from the two examples mentioned so far (Banach and Cassar).

    What coaches will need successors in the next 5 years?

    One thing that Bobby Douglas noted in one of the Gable documentaries was that Gable had no qualms about taking on wrestlers who were much bigger in size than he was. He would sometimes go with Chris Taylor when they were at Iowa State. Lou Banach admitted that when he wrestled for Iowa, Gable could beat him. As amazing as those feats sounded, they came with a price.

    Always enjoyed his posts. RIP.

    What coaches will need successors in the next 5 years?

    Gable was 48 when he stepped down. But his body was breaking down as a result so many years of putting it through physical hell long after his competitive career was over. I think most coaches out there avoid that kind of activity as a result.
