  1. Let me see if I have this straight. The NCAA says 2020 spring sport Seniors can return for their 2021 season IF the school provides the $$$ for their scholarship (which may not be the same amount as they received previously). But the block head that is Barry Alvarez makes a blanket statement barring ALL Wisconsin spring sport Seniors from that option? Wow - I'll bet the lawyers in Wisconsin are drooling all over themselves about the prospect of suing the Univ. of Wisconsin - INDIVIDUALLY - for violating the rights of those athletes who are affected by this. Particularly the 2020 spring sport Seniors who have never utilized their redshirt year - which at least 9 out of 10 softball players do routinely.
  2. You need to splash some water on your face Tommy...............i.e., wake up. It should be patently obvious I was JOKING here.
  3. Well either Flo (which I will never subscribe to again) either screwed up when they put this preview together OR Abas is headed elsewhere. It's likely one or the other - right? Since he's still on Stanford's team roster https://gostanford.com/sports/wrestling/roster I don't think the latter is very probable. But what the heck - let's just start a completely un-founded rumor - I'll say Abas is transferring to Arizona State as ASU is in real need of a 149 lb'er for next season.
  4. Sounds to me as if it's simply a very poorly researched lineup preview by Flo to me. How can anyone doing a lineup preview for Stanford wrestling for next season be so clueless as to not even mention Abas? Even if he was in the transfer portal wouldn't that be worthy of mentioning if that was the case?
  5. Fact is none of these 2020 Seniors were planning on being back for the 2021 season. I'm sure they all had plans in place as to what they would be doing after this spring. I would imagine most of them will continue on with their plans. Could some of them opt to come back? Sure? But I'd guess the lion's share will not. Only time will tell if ANY of them will be back for 2021.
  6. Okay, thanks for that info. Basically that is saying they can go above the scholarship limit but they will have to pay the cost - which is no different than any other year - other than the fact that they will be paying for a larger total of scholarships than they have previously. I'm curious about the fact that all seven of the 2020 Boise State Softball Seniors have NOT utilized their redshirt year (which is pretty common in Softball) and how that affects all of this. As I see it they really are not getting an additional year of eligibility as they have really only played 3 years. And the NCAA gives all student athletes 5 years to play four.
  7. New recruits are only allowed to make five official visits - to 5 separate schools. That is the NCAA limit on official visitations. However they can make "unofficial" visits (on their dime) if they choose to do so.
  8. So if I understand this correctly and using the Boise State softball team as an example (as I am familiar with that) then their seven 2020 Seniors can return for another year of NCAA eligibility IF they choose to do so (at least three of them I'm fairly sure won't). But just for the sake of discussion let's assume all seven of them choose to return for another year of NCAA eligibility. The Boise State softball team had 21 players on their roster for 2020. The problem is Boise State has also signed 8 new recruits for their softball team for 2021. If all seven 2020 Seniors return for 2021 that would put the Boise State softball team roster total at 29 players. And the NCAA scholarship limit for Softball is 12 scholarships (which can be divided much like wrestling). So how can one divide 12 scholarships between 29 players? That equates to about 40% of a scholarship per player. And obviously some players will be getting more and some will be getting less - depending on their importance to the team. In the case of the seven Boise State 2020 Seniors three of them were starting position players and two of them were two of the top three pitchers on the team. Also NONE of the seven had utilized their redshirt year. So basically this would mean that 2020 counts as their redshirt year? This article mentioned the following: "Members also adjusted financial aid rules to allow teams to carry more members on scholarship to account for incoming recruits and student-athletes who had been in their last year of eligibility who decide to stay." But it doesn't go into specifics on exactly what that means. Anyone have any FACTS on what is meant by this?
  9. https://www.dailybulletin.com/2020/04/01/excelsior-charters-jesse-vasquez-is-the-sun-bulletin-boys-wrestler-of-the-year/ According to this newspaper article from one week ago Vasquez has visited Michigan and Ohio State and plans to visit Princeton, Duke and "Arizona" - after these Universities open back up and travel restrictions are lessened. Someone needs to inform the writer of this article that "Arizona" does not have a wrestling program. I am "ASSUMING" he meant Arizona State.
  10. Refer to the original post in this thread 160 lbs - Andrew Sparks - Calvary Chapel H.S. - 2020 Senior - Uncommitted
  11. I haven't read much on this - which is why I am asking the question here - but for those 2020 NCAA winter sports SENIORS are they now officially DONE? And for the Seniors on the Spring sports teams is there going to be an allowance or adjustment for the number of athletes on scholarship in those Spring sports? I thought I read somewhere that those 2020 Seniors would have to pay their own way if they wish to come back for 2021 (which is completely asinine - but that IS the NCAA for sure).
  12. If you match up these top 16 ranked (according to WrestleStat) wrestlers for both Stanford and Arizona State it would appear Stanford is the better team as Stanford has a higher ranked wrestler in 14 of these 16 slots. However, in a dual, I'd still pick Arizona State to win. # 4 a t 165 lbs - STANFORD - Shane Griffith - 2021 RS Sophomore # 7 at 174 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Anthony Valencia - 2021 RS Senior ======================= # 7 at 141 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Real Woods - 2021 RS Sophomore # 10 at 157 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Jacori Teemer - 2021 RS Sophomore ======================= # 12 at 197 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Kordell Norfleet - 2021 RS JR or SR # 19 at 197 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Nathan Traxler - 2021 RS Senior ======================= # 14 at 125 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Brandon Courtney - 2021 RS Junior # 25 at 149 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Jaden Abas - 2021 RS Freshman ======================= # 26 at 125 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Jackson DiSario - 2021 True Sophomore # 45 at 125 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Nick Raimo - 2021 RS Freshman ======================= # 38 at 149 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Requir van der Merwe - 2021 RS Senior # 49 at 184 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Cade Belshay - 2021 RS Junior ======================= # 40 at 157 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Dominick Mandarino - 2021 RS Junior (if he is still on the team) # 60 at 133 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Josiah Kline - 2021 RS Junior ======================= # 40 at 141 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Fabian Santillian - 2021 RS Freshman # 61 at 141 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Julian Chlebove - 2021 RS Freshman ======================= # 48 at 157 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Tyler Eischens - 2021 RS Sophomore # 63 at 285 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Cohlton Schultz - 2021 RS Freshman ======================= # 63 at 184 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Judah Duhm - 2021 RS Junior (if he is still on the team) # 89 at 184 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Austin Clayton - 2021 RS Junior ======================= # 69 at 184 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Foster Karmon - 2021 RS Junior (WrestleStat has him at 184 lbs but he spent most of last season at 174 lbs) # 92 at 174 lbs - Trey Munoz - 2021 RS Freshman ======================= # 87 at 125 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Logan Ashton - 2021 RS Freshman # 123 at 141 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Cory Crooks - 2021 RS Senior ======================= # 103 at 285 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Haydn Maley - 2021 RS Junior # 125 at 197 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Brady Gilliland-Daniel - 2021 RS Junior ======================= # 104 at 184 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Nick Addison - 2021 True Sophomore # 127 at 141 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Navonte Demison - 2021 RS Junior ======================= # 113 at 174 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Jared Hill - 2021 RS Senior # 128 at 149 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Dillon Ulrey - 2021 RS Senior ======================= # 119 at 133 lbs lbs - STANFORD - Dalton Young - 2021 RS Junior (if he is still on the team) # 142 at 197 lbs - ARIZONA STATE - Chad Porter - 2021 RS Junioe =======================

  15. The nice thing for Pendleton is he really doesn't HAVE to recruit to replace anyone from last season's lineup for Oregon State as all 10 starters are back for 2021 as well as Hunter Willits at 157 lbs (who redshirted last season). I'm sure he and his staff WILL be out recruiting anyway - but they really do not HAVE to do so.

    Penn State

    My question about Penn State for next year is how many of their projected starters for 2021 will be in their SEVENTH season of wrestling at the NCAA level? Guys such as Anthony Cassar (285), Kyle Conel (197) and Shakur Rasheed (197)
  17. Thanks for the feedback Hey Now. No offense intended but I'm hoping you are mistaken about Young. I know he had injury problems as he didn't wrestle at all beyond November last year. But I think Young would be their best option at 133 lbs for next season (rather than Arroyo or the true freshman) UNLESS DiSario moves up to 133 lbs and Ashton starts at 125 lbs. As to Harlan and Duhm it seems odd to me that when you do a comparison between those two on WrestleStat WS predicts Harlan wins 9-6 over Duhm. - yet their three common opponents from 2019 are Bob Coleman of Oregon State (2019 PAC 12 champ at 184), Willem DeBoer of Cal Poly and Dom Ducharme of CSUB and Harlan lost all three of those matches whereas Duhm beat Ducharme and DeBoer and lost 4-2 to Coleman in the 2019 PAC 12 championship match.
  18. Mandarino's last match wrestling for Stanford was in February of 2019 when he lost 2-1 to # 2 ranked Tyler Berger of Nebraska in the Stanford vs. Nebraska dual (at 157 lbs). It would be great for Stanford if he made it back on the roster for next season but I tried searching for him on the internet and found NOTHING recent about him at all. I have no idea what became of him since February of 2019. Berger, of course, placed 2nd at the 2019 NCAA tournament and 3rd at the 2018 NCAA tournament and 5th at the 2017 NCAA tournament.
  19. I wondered about Mandarino at the beginning of last season but he was not on the Stanford roster this past season. So I'm assuming he's done - despite the fact that he was only a True Sophomore for the season before last (2018-2019). Dominick Mandarino profile from 2019 season As opposed to Judah Duhm who WAS listed on the Stanford roster all season long (but did not compete).
  20. With Stanford returning at least 7 of their 10 starters from 2020 for the 2021 season I'm wondering what Stanford fans think will happen given the fact that Stanford had both Requir van der Merwe and Jaden Abas at 149 lbs this past season. Do one of those two move up to 157 lbs? If so does that mean Tyler Eischens also moves up from 157 lbs to 165 lbs. And if so does Shane Griffith then move up to 174 lbs? Second question is who do Stanford wrestling fans see as the probable starter for Stanford for the 2021 season at 133 lbs? Dalton Young - who WrestleStat has ranked # 119 at 133 lbs? My GUESS as to Stanford's probable lineup for the 2021 season would be the following. Tell me what you think is incorrect - if you would please: 125 lbs - # 26 rankedJackson DiSario - True Sophomore (21-9) - 2020 PAC 12 runner-up at 125 lbs 133 lbs - # 119 ranked Dalton Young - RS Junior (8-3) 141 lbs - # 7 ranked Real Woods - RS Sophomore (19-1) - 2020 PAC 12 champion at 141 lbs 149 lbs - # 38 ranked Requir van der Merwe - RS Senior (10-6) - 2020 PAC 12 runner-up at 149 lbs (2019 PAC 12 champion) OR # 25 ranked Jaden Abas - RS Freshman (23-4) 157 lbs - # 48 ranked Tyler Eischens - RS Sophomore (21-9) OR Requir van der Merwe (see 149 lbs above) OR Jaden Abas (see 149 lbs above) 165 lbs - # 4 ranked Shane Griffith - RS Sophomore (28-0) - 2020 PAC 12 champion at 165 lbs OR Tyler Eischens (see 157 lbs above) 174 lbs - # 113 ranked Jared Hill - RS Senior (5-7) OR # 69 ranked (at 184 lbs) Karmon Foster - RS Junior (15-10) OR Shane Griffith (see 165 lbs above) 184 lbs - # 63 Judah Duhm - RS Senior (0-0) - Stanford's starter in 2019 (PAC 12 runner-up at 184 lbs in 2019) OR Jared Hill OR Karmon Foster (see 174 lbs above) 197 lbs - # 19 ranked Nathan Traxler - RS Senior (20-5) - 2020 PAC 12 runner-up at 197 lbs 285 lbs - # 103 ranked Hayden Maley - True Junior (5-2) - Stanford's HWY starter in 2019
  21. Based on what I've seen lately as far as commitments for 2020 there are a LOT of wrestlers who have committed but have not YET signed on the dotted line. It's not that strange IMO.
  22. I did check it out at hoopladigital.com however the public library in my town is apparently not subscribed to hoopla. They listed some libraries in cities near where I live but not the city where I actually reside. Also I browsed thru their television options and A. It appears to be primarily British TV shows and B. I did not see any American TV shows I'd be interested in watching. So I don't think Hoopla is for me. But thanks for the tip nonetheless.
  23. Thanks Gantry - I'll do that. Thanks for the tip.
  24. Cal Poly has also signed Kendall La Rosa of Pitman HS in CA. He placed 4th at 160 lbs at the 2020 CA State tournament and he was a 2019 SQ at 160 lbs Here's a story which mentioned he signed with Cal Poly: https://www.modbee.com/sports/high-school/article241383211.html Kendall's older brother, Joe La Rosa, was a Sophomore for Cal Poly last season.
