  1. He's been placed on leave: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/bigten/2018/08/01/urban-meyer-put-leave-ohio-state-admit-abuse-investigation/883163002/
  2. If he has any interest at all in it, plastic surgery might be an option to help fix his ears for the hearing aids.
  3. 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
  4. The son of a collegiate wrestling coach ended up playing basketball in high school?! =) https://osubeavers.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=6671
  5. 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/

  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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/

  12. What's Mike Mena doing these days? He was the Hoosier assistant who I thought should have been given the job.
  13. DeSanto's profile on the Drexel site has gone blank: http://www.drexeldragons.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=6060&path=mwrest

  15. 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.
  16. If Anthony Robles had two legs, he probably would have been a 157 pounder.
  17. Zahid is very slender, which sometimes makes him look taller than his 5' 10".
  18. MSU will have two solid AA contenders next season in sophs Rayvon Foley and Drew Hughes. I'm willing to give Chandler a little longer to see how things turn out.
  19. Did the USC athletic director say WHY they would never have wrestling or lacrosse?
  20. So to clarify: they are basically converting/"remodeling" a basketball gym by placing the mats and workout area on the floor and then placing the offices/lockers on the overlying balcony?
  21. So far just the bare day-to-day expenses of a college wrestling program. Often, when setting things up or bringing an old program back, there can be all kinds of additional strings attached, as Oregon found out: http://www.oregonlive.com/ducks/index.ssf/2015/10/goe_the_university_of_oregon_t.html
  22. Best case scenario might be as an associate head coach at a Div. I program where he runs practice, and the head job done by someone more temperamentally suited for it.
