  1. I write that headline here as it's been a full week since the news broke that Peter Lipari of Rider & Rutgers is transferring to Arizona State. Yet when I checked Pinfall Recruiting's list of Arizona State's commitments (and transfers) there is no mention of Lipari. Even worse is the Open Mat's woeful list of wrestling transfers - which looks like it hasn't been updated in quite some time now. https://www.pinfallrecruiting.com/commits/commits-male/?commit_filter[]=Arizona+State&filter_submit=Filter https://news.theopenmat.com/college-wrestling-news/2020-ncaa-transfer-tracking-page/77351
  2. So the PAC 12 drags it's feet till almost literally the last minute and then FINALLY adds Little Rock to avoid having their NCAA tournament eligibility dropped. And NOW Stanford - with a 28 BILLION dollar endowment in hand - chooses to drop wrestling (and 10 other sports). So the PAC 12 is going to need yet another school with the sport of wrestling after 2021. Wonder how long they will drag their feet this next time. All of the following Stanford wrestlers (since this appears to be an absolutely final decision by Stanford) should enter the transfer portal TODAY: 125 lbs - Jackson DiSario - 2020-21 True So. - Ranked # 22 at 125 lbs by WrestleStat (From McDonough, GA) 141 lbs - Real Woods - 2020-21 RS So. - Ranked # 7 at 141 lbs by WrestleStat (From Albuquerque, NM) 141 lbs - Fabian Santillan - 2020-21 True So. - Ranked # 28 by WrestleStat (From Aurora, CO) 149 lbs - Jaden Abas - 2021 RS FR - Ranked # 15 by WS (From San Diego, CA) 157 lbs - Tyler Eischens - 2021 RS SO - Ranked # 31 by WS (From Anoka, MN) 165 lbs - Shane Griffith - 2021 RS SO - Ranked # 4 by WS (From Westwood NJ) Personally if they are going to transfer I'd like to see Woods, Abas and Griffith (at the very least) transfer to Arizona State. That would mean the following lineup for Arizona State next season 125 - Brandon Courtney (RS JR) - Ranked # 13 133 - Michael McGee (RS JR) - Ranked # 7 141 - Real Woods (RS SO) - Ranked # 7 149 - Jaden Abas (RS FR) - Ranked # 15 157 - Jacori Teemer (RS SO) Ranked # 9 165 - Shane Griffith (RS SO) - Ranked # 4 174 - Anthony Valencia (RS SR) - Ranked # 7 184 - Cade Belshay (RS JR) - Ranked # 37 197 - Kordell Norfleet (RS JR) - Ranked # 11 285 - Cohlton Schultz (RS FR) - Ranked # 48
  3. Compare those ratings (or Rankings for the sad cringer types among us) to WrestleStat's rankings: 125 lbs # 13 - Brandon Courtney - Arizona State # 22 - Jackson DiSario - Stanford # 27 - Brandon Kaylor - Oregon State 133 lbs # 7 - Michael McGee - Arizona State # 19 - Devan Turner - Oregon State 141 lbs # 7 - Real Woods - Stanford # 17 - Grant Willits - Oregon State 149 lbs # 15 - Jaden Abas - Stanford 157 lbs # 9 - Jacori Teemer - Arizona State # __ - Hunter Willits - Oregon State (not ranked by WS) # 29 - Tyler Eischens - Stanford 165 lbs # 4 - Shane Griffith - Stanford # 7 - Anthony Valencia - Arizona State # 28 - Bernie Truax - Cal Poly 174 lbs NONE 184 lbs # __ - Josh Loomer - CS Bakersfield (not ranked by WS) # 28 - Colt Doyle - Oregon State 197 lbs # 11 - Kordell Norfleet - Arizona State # 16 - Nathan Traxler - Stanford # __ - Dom Ducharme - CS Bakersfield (not ranked by WS) 285 lbs # __ - Cohlton Schultz - Arizona State (not ranked by WS
  4. The Open Mat's ratings for 2021 as of 7-06-2020 https://news.theopenmat.com/college-rankings/ncaa-di-college-wrestling-early-preseason-rankings-individual-team-july-6th-2020/78413 125 lbs # 9 - Brandon Courtney - Arizona State # 26 - Jackson DiSario - Stanford # 27 - Brandon Kaylor - Oregon state 133 lbs # 8 - Michael McGee - Arizona State # 9 - Devan Turner - Oregon State 141 lbs # 5 - Real Woods - Stanford # 21 - Grant Willits - Oregon State 149 lbs # 12 - Jaden Abas - Stanford 157 lbs # 7 - Jacori Teemer - Arizona State # 25 - Hunter Willits - Oregon State # 27 - Tyler Eischens - Stanford 165 lbs # 3 - Shane Griffith - Stanford # 23 - Bernie Truax - Cal Poly 174 lbs # 8 - Anthony Valencia - Arizona State * Last I heard AV is going to be at 165 lbs 184 lbs # 25 - Josh Loomer - CSU Bakersfield # 28 - Colt Doyle - Oregon State 197 lbs # 7 - Kordell Norfleet - Arizona State # 10 - Nathan Traxler - Stanford # 33 - Dom Ducharme - CSU Bakersfield 285 lbs # 14 - Cohlton Schultz - Arizona State
  5. I used WrestleStat's database to do a comparison on how Lipari and Crooks would theoretically do (according to WrestleStat) vs. the projected starters for the other PAC 12 teams for 2021. This is what I came up with: LIPARI vs. Projected PAC 12 starters at 149 lbs for the 2021 season: vs. Jaden Abas (Stanford) - Abas wins 8-4 vs Lipari vs. Requir van der Merwe (Stanford) - van der Merwe wins 6-4 vs. Lipari vs. Lane Stigall (Oregon State) - Stigall wins 8-7 vs. Lipari vs. Tyler Brennan (Little Rock) - Brennan wins 7-6 vs Lipari vs. Legend Lamer (Cal Poly) - Lipari wins 7-5 vs. Lamer vs. Josh Brown (CS Bakersfield) - Lipari wins 9-4 vs. Brown CROOKS vs. Projected PAC 12 starters at 149 lbs for the 2021 season: vs. Jaden Abas (Stanford) - Abas wins 8-4 vs. Crooks vs. Requir van der Merwe (Stanford) - van der Merwe wins 9-3 vs Crooks vs. Lane Stigall (Oregon State) - Stigall wins 9-4 vs. Crooks vs. Tyler Brennan (Little Rock) - Brennan wins 8-4 vs Crooks vs. Legend Lamer (Cal Poly) - Lamer wins 7-6 vs Crooks vs. Josh Brown (CS Bakersfield) - Brown wins 8-7 vs Crooks However it should be noted that WrestleStat still has Crooks listed at 141 lbs - well after ASU's head coach made it very clear that Crooks would be moving up to 149 lbs in that Zoom conference call they had last month. So that MAY be why Crooks was not projected to win any of these theoretical match-ups at 149 lbs. But based on these projected outcomes (thanks to WrestleStat) it appears that Lipari would be very competitive against all of the PAC 12 projected starters other than one of the two possible starters for Stanford, i.e., Jaden Abas.
  6. Consider this from Arizona State's standpoint. Prior to getting Lipari as a transfer Arizona State was likely going to go with Cory Crooks at 149 lbs - moving up from 141 lbs the last few seasons (according to Zeke Jones) OR going with one of two true freshman, i.e., Jesse Vasquez or Ricky Roberto. Lipari, at the very least, gives ASU some depth at 149 lbs - especially if the incoming freshmen are going to be redshirted this season. And why wouldn't they be redshirted with Crooks and Lipari both in their last season of eligibility this coming season?
  7. BOTTOM LINE is .....................Boise State's idiotic management dropped the very successful (historically) wrestling team to add a baseball team which played a grand total of 14 games at a cost that absolutely will be far, far, far, more than the Boise State wrestling team was losing annually. All because the now former Boise State school President, Bob Kustra, wanted to bring Baseball back at Boise State.
  8. WrestleStat already has him on the Arizona State roster AT 149 lbs. I can see why ASU would want to add him to their team for next season at 149 lbs as that will give them a chance to redshirt Jesse Vasquez. But his stats last season at 141 lbs are not very impressive. He went 12-7 and went 1-2 at the 2020 MAC championships at 141 lbs. However it appears as if Lipari must have been granted a 6th year of eligibility at some point as his WrestleStat profile shows he first competed in college in 2016 while redshirting. Did not compete at all in 2017. Then competed in 2018,2019 and 2020. Did he miss all of the 2017 season due to injury or what? Also he was listed on Rider's team roster for 2020 as a RS Senior.
  9. As a two-time graduate of Boise State this just makes me cringe. The lying two-faced BASTARD that is now the FORMER school President (Robert Kustra) said on multiple occasions when he was the Boise State school President that "wrestling will NOT be eliminated" at Boise State. Then right before he retires he eliminates the wrestling program (with a new head coach and new staff in their very first year at Boise State) just months before he is set to leave BSU. He did this SPECIFICALLY to bring back Baseball at Boise State and they hadn't had a baseball team at Boise State since the 1970's (when I was going to college there). In 2020 they bring back the baseball team - which did very well for a first year program - but end the season after only 14 games because of the INSANITY that is the Chinese Wuhan Virus. And NOW they are dropping the Baseball program. Someone NEEDS to make a movie about this travesty that is Boise State. If chimpanzees were in charge at Boise State they absolutely could not do a worse job than what's been going on at Boise State the last five years. They keep sending me cards (just got a birthday card yesterday from BSU) always asking me to send money. I always return them with this reply "Sorry but I do not support SOCIALIST organizations".
  10. Which PAC 12 team has more RETURNING NCAA qualifiers for 2021?
  11. The answer is Stanford. Stanford has 7 returning wrestlers who have qualified for the NCAA tournament in their NCAA wrestling careers: 125 lbs - Jackson DiSario - 2020 NCAA qualifier - 2021 True Sophomore 141 lbs - Real Woods - 2020 NCAA Qualifier - 2021 RS Sophomore 149 lbs - Requir van der Merwe - 2019 NCAA Qualifier - 2021 RS Senior 157 lbs - Tyler Eischens - 2019 NCAA Qualifier - 2021 RS Sophomore 165 lbs - Shane Griffith - 2020 NCAA Qualifier - 2021 RS Sophomore 197 lbs - Nathan Traxler - Three time NCAA Qualifier (2020-2019-2018) - 2021 RS Senior 285 lbs - Haydn Maley - 2019 NCAA Qualifier - 2021 RS Junior Arizona State has 5 returning wrestlers who have qualified for the NCAA tournament - Anthony Valencia (3 times), Kordell Norfleet (2 times), Michael McGee (2 times), Brandon Courtney (2020) and Jacori Teemer (2020).
  12. IF they both do - in fact - sign with ASU then it's interesting (to me at least) to look ahead to what the ASU lineup might be for the 2022 season: 125 lbs - Brandon Courtney - RS Senior for 2022 season - Tristan Mascarenas - RS Freshman - Richard Figueroa - True Freshman - Carter Dibert - True Freshman 133 lbs - Michael McGee - RS Senior for 2022 - Nick Raimo - RS Sophomore - Cleveland Belton - RS Sophomore - Lou Fincher - RS Freshman 141 lbs - Julian Chlebove - RS Sophomore - Josiah Kline - RS Senior - Navonte Demison - RS Senior 149 lbs - Jesse Vasquez - RS Freshman OR True Sophomore - Ricky Roberto - RS Freshman 157 lbs - Jacori Teemer - RS Junior - Hunter Balk - RS Sophomore 165 lbs - Cael Valencia - True Freshman - Max Wilner - True Freshman 174 lbs - Trey Munoz - RS Sophomore - Josh Nummer - RS Sophomore 184 lbs - Cade Belshay - RS Senior - Austin Clayton - RS Senior - Zane Coleman - RS Sophomore 197 lbs - Kordell Norfleet - RS Senior - Chad Porter - RS Senior - Jacob Good - RS Sophomore 285 lbs - Cohlton Schultz - RS Sophomore - David Palosika - RS Freshman or True Sophomore
  13. 120 lbs - Laz Maldonado - Clovis West H.S. - Lost 7-1 to Tristan Lujan in the 2020 CA championship match at 120 lbs - Lujan signed to wrestle for Michigan State 220 lbs - Jacob Christensen - Durham H.S. - Lost 9-4 to Brandon Leon in the 2020 CA championship match at 220 lbs - Leon also has (apparently) not signed to wrestle anywhere Or at least that SEEMS to be the case as far as I've been able to find out. If they have signed to wrestle in college feel free to correct me.
  14. I just noticed that all ten weight classes have at least 4 returning starters (if you count Cory Crooks at 149 and Anthony Valencia at 165). And 184 lbs has all six returning starters.
