    Programs Not Fully Funded

    It would be easier to list the programs that are fully funded.

    Who's the best wrestler you've ever wrestled?

    Sounds like we were around the same era. That’s an impressive list of grapplers that you’ve competed against. I didn’t wrestle many NW Pa guys, except a kid from Redbank and another from Hickory. I see Sean O’Day every once in a while, down here in Va

    Erie Tech HS?

    DeSanto - what is he missing?

    I was going to say Emotional Intelligence, but not sure the grappling world thinks in those terms.
  6. Plus, Downey didn't have the braided hair back then. That adds a new wrinkle that DT hasn't seen yet.

    Hypo: pick 1 incoming recruit to add to your team

    How do you pin a guy in 3 seconds?

    Molinari and Molinaro and Varner

    You are delusional. This is the dumbest thing I’ve read on here in a while. Calvin Peete is a 1 in a million story, and played in an era when golf was not nearly as competitive as it is now.

    I don’t you think you appreciate how challenging golf is, and how much time pro’s & wanna be pro’s put into it. It’s hours and hours, everyday. The best golfer you know who is not a pro...perhaps a scratch golfer or 1 or 2 handicap, would get the equivalent of a tech fall by the worst guy on the Nike tour. It would be like taking a stud high school wrestler who was all-state and having him wrestle Jason Nolf.
  10. This ^. Historically, that may be the case about Russian style vs. American, but the times are a changin'. The Iowa influence has diminished in the development of our freestyle program, and we are now seeing a much more technical and strategic style.

    What were the first 2 calls for? I didn’t see anything wrong with what the Exeter kids was doing

    PSA: 1997 NCAA Finals on ESPNU tomorrow at 2pm CST

    Just like the good old days, when you had to set the VCR to tape the finals. I remember watching Cael win his 4th live and then heading back to my buddy’s apartment in Albany to watch the re-play.

    Could Tiger...??

    So many people can accomplish it? There are millions who play the sport around the world (unlike football), and the totals that make it to the big leagues is in the hundreds. The number of guys in the majors who can even hit .300 is very, very small. Regarding the NFL, there is a certain size minimum that is required to even be considered...which negates 2/3 of the population. In baseball, you have all shapes & sizes. I'm not a huge fan of baseball, just acknowledging the immense difficulty of hitting a big league curveball.

    Not when you’ve played the game for a long time. Fast ball is just about timing. An elite curve can literally buckle your knees. I played in an over 30 league for several years, facing former high school & college pitchers...many who threw mid-high 80’s, usually with a decent curve. One year, a team picked up a recently cut AAA pitcher named Tommy Harrison, who was in his early 30’s. He threw around 90, but his curve was literally unhittable. You could foul off a fastball or occasionally push one into the opposite field. The curve wouldn’t ever make contact with the bat. You couldn’t even nip it with your bat. It was mind-blowing . And, this guy was a career minor leaguer with a mediocre record & ERA.

    Hitting a fastball is pretty easy...at least up to 90 MPH. It’s the curve and sliders that elite pitchers throw that are nearly impossible to hit. The hardest thing to do in all of sport is to hit an elite curveball...IMO.
