  1. When is the Snyder finals match? I see that the NBC site is done broadcasting.
  2. Is Jacob Warner a confirmed redshirt?
  3. Nolf might eagerly anticipate a rematch with IMar, but I believe IMar would also relish the challenge. Maybe one day but not today.
  4. Good tournament for Brunson though Illinois disappointing overall.
  5. Don't follow Gilman but sure seems like a jerk.
  6. They are playing the bowl game. http://www.startribune.com/gophers-players-u-leaders-working-toward-ending-boycott-of-football/407201426/
  7. Not looking good for a IMar/Oliver matchup. I wonder how often IMar and Kennedy have sparred in the wrestling room.

    What's Chris Phillips up to these days? Does he ever get near a mat?
  9. Well, a year and a half ago Chris Phillips was still underperforming: http://www.norwalkreflector.com/article/3804301 If he could have stayed in school, Phillips would have been in the running for a national championship. I agree it is a waste of time to mourn these guys but it is a damn shame.
  10. Yea .98^100= 13.26% And no way you can use 98%. Injuries can always happen and Martinez will have some tough matches ahead. That being said, the fact that people are even speculating about the possibility is good for the sport.
  11. Green as a 4X All-American is a good choice for one of the best to never win. The story has another byline to it though. In 2009 Poeta (ILL) came into the NCAA tournament 13-0 in an injury-shortened season. Poeta had placed 3rd in 2007 and 2nd in 2008 and was determined to win a championship. Unfortunately he ran into Burroughs (NEB), who came into the tournament at 30-0 and proceded to beat Poeta 5-1 in the finals match. Fast forward to 2015, Green (NEB) on the mat and his coach and mentor Burroughs in his corner. Martinez (ILL) defeats Green 3-2. Not exactly payback, but karma is sometimes a bitch.
  12. Comparing an at bat in baseball to a quarterfinal match in a championship series is rather silly. Comparing gymnastic and ice skating judging with an unawarded escape point in wrestling is also rather silly - unless you would like wrestling to be judged like ice skating. Frankly, I kind of like wrestling and don't like to see this kind of nonsense in a championship series.
  13. The count - yea, maybe. But the score of the game? If you know of other instances of this occuring, please share. I can't come up with any offhand.
  14. I know of no other sport where the refs can get the score wrong, the coach asks them if the score is right, the ref says yes, the ref is wrong and too bad, the match stands. I believe they should rewrestle the match.
  15. The announcers think that this Israel Martinez guy is a hell of a wrestler.
  16. Agreed. I am rooting for Martinez but a $100 bet against him wins $300! Las Vegas odds reflect what the bettors are doing and obviously after the B10 tournament, most like Martinez. But he still has to get by both Green and then Ness/Realbuto. The Las Vegas odds for a Martinez win are way too generous.
  17. L. Steiber $3000 bet wins $100. Wow. Next favorite is Martinez where $450 wins $100. Next is Dieringer where $375 wins $100. Las Vegas is not doubting Martinez one bit.
  18. Myles Martin does look tough. What is amazing is that he was beaten by both Valencia brothers, Anthony V. at 170 and Zahid V. at 182. It will be fun to watch all three in the coming years.
  19. So after all of the posts on this topic we still don't know who Martinez trains with. If you have inside information, do tell. I would also be interested if he has ever got on the mat with Poeta in practice. That would be fun to watch.
  20. Martinez beats Ness 3 out of 4 matches.
  21. Unseeded Lagenderfer takes 3rd. Great job.
  22. Maybe my imagination but it looked like Delgado was smirking at Gilman as Gilman performed his best impression of a tough-looking stare on the awards platform.
  23. Nice win for Reyes over Courts for 7th. First win for Reyes over Courts after several meetings.
