    LoStNuMbEr got a reaction from pjm46 in Richard Perry accident   
    You got gipped! I had this exact thing happen to me last year after a labrum repair, and the total bill for everything was 67k.  
    The point being that 100k might as well be nothing if the scenario is as serious as being described. If Perry does have Brain Surgery and requires ongoing care afterwards the medical bills will be closer to the GDP of a small country then they will be to the cap on USAW insurance.
    Wishing the best to him and his family in this time of trial.

    LoStNuMbEr reacted to Fletcher in Zaddick out at Iowa State   
    Some legal wisdom for the masses:
    1. If Zadick does not have an employment contract, he can be fired at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all (other than for race, gender, age, or religion). This "right to work" stuff has to do with unions and is inapplicable.
    2. Employment contracts are common in the world of higher ed., so he may have one. If that's the case, the terms of that contract could give him additional job protection.
    3. He may be entitled to severance, either thru his contract or university policy. Those policies typically provide for salary continuation if he's let go for reasons other than "cause."
    4. He could also be entitled to unemployment if he's let go for reasons other than "cause."
    5. I don't know the circumstances of Zadick's departure, but, hypothetically, if one coach punches another coach in the nose, it's unquestionably "cause" for termination.
    6. It's a common practice to pay someone severance, even when they're let go for cause, in exchange for a promise not to sue and not disparage the employer.

    A great blanket statement with no actual analysis.  Sanderson didn't beat "Iowa Style"  like a drum when he was at ISU.  At PSU he has simply had BETTER wrestlers.  The '09 team matches up VERY WELL with PSU.
    Iowa from 125-149,174 was every bit as strong as PSU from 149-184.  In a dual setting, Iowa actually has an advantage as they don't have the 2 big holes PSU had at 125 and 133.  Now, I agree that PSU would be too much for them in a tournament setting, but head to head, this Iowa team is RIGHT THERE with them.

    Most of us here wrestled in high school at the very least.  Some had the honor to compete in college.   Others  were blessed as  dual sport varsity  athletes in college.  I fall under that category.  I treasure my letter jacket.     I rarely speak on it as to not toot my own horn, but yes it's true . It's very true.
    I played the triangle in the band.    I lettered for it and i have enjoyed some of the most memorable times when out there in front of everyone and in command of that iconic instrument.    But did my focus on wrestling stymie  my development in music?   Would I have been a better wrestler or a better command of the  triangle  had I chosen to specialize and not focus on both?    A little known fact is I attended college on a music scholarship.      Yes that's right.   And no amount of wrestling was able to undermine my efforts of my goals.   
    Perhaps I'm just old school.    Perhaps 
    and freestyle world champs are all the outliers and none of them should be beating those who refuse to only specialize.        You guys probably know better than me.

    Yeah they don't do that...  People keep clinging onto the "obnoxious screaming Flo announcers" thing but that was ages ago.  Back in the day they were over the top but now Bader, Nomad, Pyles, etc do a good job calling the matches.  Are they 100% polished Bob Costas guys?  No, they may get a little pumped some times but certainly less than a Kevin Harlan or Gus Johnson.
    They are knowledgeable and by and large do fine.  Can we stop with this screaming announcers false narrative?

    LoStNuMbEr reacted to Jaroslav Hasek in Why are colleges still wearing the singlet?   
    the cool thing about the singlet is that you can go to any department store or sporting good store in america and purchase one, unlike compression shorts and tshirts. people are always buying one piece unitards to work out in, or just wear casually while doing errands or just lounging around the house. pulling down shoulder straps to pee is one of the many well loved features of the singlet. tight fighting shorts and tshirts will never catch on for these and many other reasons.

    When I started wrestling, Yojiro Uetake was the greatest wrestler in the world.  50 years later I gotta include him in my top 3 of all time. (Feel free to speculate who the other 2 are.)
    Who couldn't be impressed with Okie State at that time, or Iowa a couple of decades later.  Both inspired programs.  I'm truly over the top about Penn State now because they are so much fun to watch.  Guys like Jason Nolf and Bo Nickal win style points for their creativity.  I guess today's style of wrestling is just more spectator friendly because of improvements in technique and coaching.  I can remember sounding/feeling like an old fogie because I always claimed that wrestlers from my time (read Okie State/Lehigh/Oklahoma/etc.) were every bit as good as those then currently wrestling.  
    I no longer make that claim.  Wrestling is the best it's ever been.  Period.  Thank goodness I'm still around to watch it.
