    Sheerstress reacted to homerdindon in Denny   
    I probably haven't posted on here for 10+ years, so it's unfortunate to come back this way, but just wanted to let everyone know that longtime poster Denny passed away last week after a long battle with cancer.  I knew Denny since high school and he would often travel with my father and Mr. Larkin to many ASU events across the country.  He was a great guy and will be greatly missed.

    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.

    Actually, it appears that he is enrolled.  I don't know whether part time or full time, but he's there:

    Back in the day, Mike Sheets was a master of legs.  It sounds like he may have passed it on to his son.

    Massa got the first TD, made a bunch of attempts to turn Shields in the first period, but as soon as Shields reversed in the second, he wilted soon after that.
    In general, we usually see the old Logan for at least the first part of the match, but unlike his first season, he seems to lose momentum as certain bouts go on.

    Sheerstress got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling2 in ESPN reporting on wrestling referee incident   
    In the above clip, the guy talking in the video is completely misinformed about what happened.  He even ADMITS he doesn't know why it happened!  Too many people today don't care about the facts, they just want someone to blame.

    From 1983:
    https://www.si.com/vault/1983/03/21/625801/the-hawks-soar-as-before
     
    “…last week that the Hawks carved their superiority in stone. And, further, why the Hawks are planning to improve in the future. It's all terribly depressing for the rest of college wrestling. …”
    “…Said Wyoming Coach Joe Dowler, surveying the wreckage, "All the rest of us are scrambling hard to close the gap, but what seems to be happening is that Iowa's widening it….”
    “…’This is no national championship,’ groused Yale Coach Bert Waterman. ‘It was sewn up before it started and that's harmful to the sport…." 
    “…Michigan Coach Dale Bahr, who in the past had blasted Gable for pouring it on, snorted, "I don't even want to talk about Iowa…."
    “….Bill Nelson, coach at Arizona until the school dropped the sport two years ago, added, "I think this is the worst thing that could happen to wrestling. Iowa's so dominant that people lose interest. Something has to be done." Dynasties don't earn a lot of affection….”

    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?

    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.

    He was the assistant coach there in the late 90s under a schizophrenic regime.  He probably knows it as well as anyone would.

    "A number of faculty and students have called for the university to drop out of Division I football — either completely dropping the program  or moving down in division, which would decrease the cost. In recent years, Eastern Michigan, with about 21,000 students, has spent more than $27 million a year from the university's general fund on sports.
     
    Many of the issues with Eastern Michigan's spending have centered on football, which has had poor performance and low attendance for years."

    A little insight into Sean's influence:
     
    Way back at the 2008 NCAAs, on the last day during the final consolation rounds, Northwestern's Dustin Fox, who was to wrestle JD Bergman for the heavyweight title that evening, walks over to the Michigan section, and in front of everybody, asks Sean for help on focusing for his task ahead that evening.  Sean was not yet back on the coaching staff and it wasn't an overly technical request, but he (Fox) didn't even try to make it a private conversation, and it struck me how he had no doubt that one of his former coaches would be there to help him.
     
    It was therefore not too surprising to me that when they did the staff shakeup in 2010, they went after him.  At the time, Sean was doing very well financially with Overtime, and having fun training high school, collegiate and world level competitors from all over, so my guess is that in addition to a very generous package, Joe probably told him that he would get the reins after a certain period.  Similar to what Dale Bahr did to get Joe back to A2 from Indiana back in the 90s.  I'm hoping he'll be around for a while to take the program yet further.
