  1. The last two times I ever ate at a Taco Bell I got food poisoning (at two separate locations in two different states). I've never eaten at a Taco Bell since then even tho the closest fast food restaurant to my home is a Taco Bell. I prefer Del Taco these days.
  2. How do you - or anyone else KNOW that for certain? Answer - YOU DON'T.
  3. So who was it that defeated Zahid Valencia this season? Last I checked he is 20-0 this season.
  4. I prefer to watch my sports at home on my couch. Also I'm a senior citizen and I haven't gone to any kind of a bar (sports or otherwise) in a VERY long time. Are there ways to get the PAC 12 channels here in the Treasure Valley? Absolutely. But it's difficult to do so and very pricey. UNLESS you access it via streaming tv services like SlingTV, FUBO, VIDGO etc. And as far as I know it's not on the local cable provider (now called Sparklight/formerly CableOne) . Also when I was younger I did not care to go to a bar to watch any sports event because half of the enjoyment of watching any sporting event is the announcers on the telecast (IS STANFORD PAYING ATTENTION HERE?) and every time I tried to watch a sporting event in a bar the sound was always turned off - as they would have half a dozen events on tv's throughout the bar/restaurant.
  5. https://pac-12.com/article/2020/02/28/stanford-hosts-2020-pac-12-wrestling-championships The first and second rounds, plus the consolation semifinals, will be streamed live on Pac-12.com. The championship rounds, which begin at 6 p.m. PT, will be televised live on Pac-12 Networks. So, like last year, the only matches that will be "televised" will be the championship round matches. But you can see SOME of the first and second round matches & some of the consolation semi's via streaming video on the Pac-12.com website.
  6. Here is a link to the Vidgo website - the $49.99 (per month) Plus Package I referred to earlier has both the PAC 12 national channel as well as the six regional PAC 12 channels. For those who use streaming tv services. And as I mentioned earlier Vidgo has a 7 day free trial available. VIDGO LINK
  7. I cut the cable cord OVER a decade ago. Costs WAAAAAAAYYYYY too much and most of what you get is channels with lots of INFOMERCIALS. I then went to DirecTV after cutting the cable cord but it became almost as bad as Cable. I've been streaming TV for the last three years and will NEVER EVER go back to Cable or DirecTV - and I'm not at all alone on that. Which is why Cable and Satellite TV services are dying a not so slow (and very real) death. If you live in California or Washington and Oregon (maybe Arizona) I think those are about the only areas where one can get the PAC 12 channels via Cable TV. I know here in Idaho the ONLY way I had of getting the PAC 12 channels was via streaming TV services.
  8. With the PAC 12 Network you have to keep this in mind. There are actually SEVEN Pac 12 Network channels. There is the NATIONAL Pac 12 channel - which if you get your PAC 12 channels via Sling TV you do NOT get - even when paying the extra $10 per month. And then there are the six regional channels which are 1. Oregon (Oregon State & Oregon), 2. Washington (Washington State & Washington), 3. CA Bay Area (UC Berkley & Stanford), 4. SO CAL (UCLA & USC), 5. Arizona (Arizona & Arizona State) and 6. Mountain (Utah & Colorado). IF the PAC 12 wrestling tournament is on any of those six regional channels it would likely be the Bay Area channel as the PAC 12 tournament is being held - once again - at Stanford. If you wish to avoid all of the confusion on this you could try the 7 day free trial available on a streaming channel called VIDGO. The regular monthly price for VIDGO which included the sports package is $50 per month but they do have a 7 day free trial. I do have Sling TV but I plan to use the 7 day free trial on VIDGO staring on March 5th. And then I will cancel it after the PAC 12 tournament is over. Vidgo with the sports package has the national PAC 12 channel and the six regional channels. There is also FUBO streaming which has the PAC 12 channels - but it costs more.
  9. Thanks for sharing your ignorant opinion here. INSTA-IGNORE
  10. Frankly I think they ought to sidestep all of this nonsense and make the NCAA wrestling field, at each weight class, with a similar amount that competes in the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournament. I don't follow basketball (at all) but I believe currently they have 68 teams compete in the NCAA basketball tournament. Are there even 68 NCAA Division I wrestling teams? If not then just invite all Division I wrestling teams to compete and have 10 wrestlers (or less) compete at the NCAA tournament. Doing so would only involve one or two more rounds (at most). According to one UNDATED webpage there are 78 NCAA division I wrestling programs. But since there is no date on this webpage I have no idea if that is accurate or not: https://www.ncsasports.org/mens-wrestling/division-1-colleges
  11. What I see here is the PAC 12 has 16 qualifiers when they were projected earlier to have only 15 - WITHOUT he who shall not be named. Worst case scenario is he who shall not be named doesn't compete at the PAC 12 tournament (wrestling "career" over) Best case scenario is he who shall not be named DOES compete at the PAC 12 tournament - and obviously takes 1st place at same and Doyle (who is a qualifier) goes to the NCAA tournament as well. Giving the PAC 12 two qualifiers at 184 lbs. Only time will tell which scenario will occur.
  12. I'm GUESSING that IF everyone listed above does compete at the PAC 12 tournament (big if I know) then I see as many as 19 qualifiers for the PAC 12 this years (same as last year). I'm basing that on the WrestleStat rankings for these guys (which include guys who are being redshirted or not competing this season - so most are ranked higher as a result). 125 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 15 Brandon Courtney (RS SO) - 23-5 record OREGON STATE - # 28 Brandon Kaylor (RS FR) - 18-5 record STANFORD - # 25 Jackson DiSario (True FR) - 19-8 record 133 lbs OREGON STATE - # 26 Devan Turner (RS JR) - 24-9 record - Beat Townsell 10-4 in SV OT # 1 STANFORD - # 77 Gabriel Townsell (RS Senior) - 2-1 record at 133 lbs (IF Townsell beats Turner at the PAC 12 tournament) 141 lbs STANFORD - # 6 Real Woods (RS FR) - 17-1 record OREGON STATE - # 25 Grant Willits (RS SO) - 21-8 record 149 lbs CSU BAKERSFIELD - # 27 Russell Rohlfing (RS SR) - 20-7 record STANFORD - # 36 Requir van der Merwe (RS JR) - 9-5 record IF he competes and places at least 2nd at the PAC 12 tournament 157 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 12 Jacori Teemer (RS FR) - 15-5 record 165 lbs STANFORD - # 6 Shane Griffith (RS FR) - 26-0 record ARIZONA STATE - # 5 Josh Shields (RS Senior) - 21-4 record 174 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 9 Anthony Valencia (RS JR) - 20-6 record 184 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 1 Zahid Valencia (RS SR) - 20-0 record OR # 60 (at 197 lbs) # 49 Cade Belshay (RS SO) - 1-1 record at 184 lbs OR # 90 Austin Clayton (RS SO) - 15-9 record Whoever starts for ASU at the PAC 12 tournament OREGON STATE - # 35 Colt Doyle (RS JR) - 18-7 record IF he finishes 1st or 2nd at PAC 12 tournament 197 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 17 Kordell Norfleet (RS SO) - 12-3 record STANFORD - # 12 Nathan Traxler (RS JR) - 19-4 record CAL POLY - # 22 Thomas Lane (RS SR) - 17-4 record 285 lbs ARIZONA STATE - # 8 - Tanner Hall (Graduate Student) - 21-3 record
  13. ASU 133 - Kramer - 9-13 141 - Crooks - 3-7 149 - Maruca 8-12 Easy to see why Tommy Payan refers to those three weight classes for ASU as the "Black Hole". The overall record for ASU's starters at those three weight classes is a combined total of 20 wins vs 32 losses.
  14. If you assign 1 point for each # 1 rank here and 2 points for each # 2 rank here, etc., lowest total being the beat - you get the following: 1. Arizona State - 21 points 2. Stanford - 24 points 3. Cal State Bakersfield - 31 points 4. Oregon State - 33 points 5. Cal Poly - 48 points 6. Little Rock - 52 points

  16. I tried that Tommy but it said I wasn't authorized to watch it. Likely because my internet provider is Sparklight (used to be CableOne). No matter I was able to watch Arizona State win seven of the ten matches on my TV via SlingTV and the ACC Extra channel. And they won the dual without he whose name we are apparently forbidden to mention. Heaven forbid someone wants to talk about something that's already in the public domain (thanks to the Arizona online newspaper article) and big news in wrestling (on a wrestling forum). No, no, no, we certainly can't have that here. I was really impressed by the telecast done by either North Carolina or the A.C.C. My one and only "bitch" is the fact that both the audio and the video would sporadically cut out. Sometimes both at the same time. Other than that it was great. Oh and the officiating in that dual was excellent as well. So much better than what I saw in the Cal Poly vs. Oregon State dual earlier this weekend.
  17. I'd agree that that match could go either way. I've just seen too many of Teemer's matches this season to not believe he'll win. HOWEVER..............I have been known to be wrong on occasion. It HAS happened. Teemer pulled off a miracle win on Friday vs. Lehigh's # 7 ranked Josh Humphreys with an amazing move in the last few seconds of that match to win it 8-7. And Teemer's only a RS Freshman this season. Regardless I'll be watching it on my TV at noon today (MT).
  18. Ever seen Teemer wrestle before? If not you're in for a treat today. If you were to bet on that match I'd urge you not to bet it all.
  19. P.S. If you are a subscriber to Sling TV (with the sports package for $10 extra) you can watch this on your tv set via the ACC channel.
  20. According to the North Carolina press release on this dual the following are the probable starters for NC and ASU North Carolina Probables 125: Joey Melendez 133: Jaime Hernandez 141: No. 12 Zach Sherman 149: No. 3 Austin O'Connor 157: No. 16 A.C. Headlee OR Josh McClure 165: No. 13 Kennedy Monday OR Sawyer Davidson 174: Clay Lautt 184: Joey Mazzara 197: Brandon Whitman 285: Andrew Gunning OR Keaton Kluever Arizona State Probables 125: No. 8 Brandon Courtney 133: Josh Kramer 141: Navonte Demison or Cory Crooks 149: Josh Maruca or Dillon Ulrey 157: No. 12 Jacori Teemer 165: No. 6 Josh Shields 174: No. 9 Anthony Valencia 184: Cade Belshay or Austin Clayton 197: No. 9 Kordell Norfleet 285: No. 4 Tanner Hall At the very least it looks like ASU wins at least six of these matchups today (125, 157, 165, 174, 197 and 285)
  21. Weird.............I initially had a bit of trouble with the video last night but after that I had zero problems with the video and audio. The commentators (whoever they were) were EXCELLENT. Dual Results: #11 Lehigh 19, #4 ASU 14 125 – Brandon Paetzell (Lehigh) dec. Brandon Courtney (ASU) 6-1 133 – Jaret Lane (Lehigh) dec. Josh Kramer (ASU) 4-1 141 – Ryan Pomrinca (Lehigh) dec. Cory Crooks (ASU) 3-1, sv 149 – Jimmy Hoffman (Lehigh) dec. Josh Maruca (ASU) 5-4 157 – Jacori Teemer (ASU) dec. Josh Humphreys (Lehigh) 8-7 165 – Josh Shields (ASU) tech fall Brian Meyer (Lehigh) 19-4, 7:00 174 – Jordan Kutler (Lehigh) dec. Anthony Valencia (ASU) 9-4 184 – Chris Weiler (Lehigh) major dec. Cade Belshay (ASU) 10-0 197 – Kordell Norfleet (ASU) dec. Chase Gallik (Lehigh) 12-6 285 – Tanner Hall (ASU) dec. Jordan Wood (Lehigh) 5-2 Courtney was dominated by Paetzell. The score was only 6-1 but the match wasn't that close. Kramer, surprisingly, wrestled pretty well and so did Maruca but both lost. If either one of them had won their match it might have been a very different outcome. Especially if Zahid had been in the lineup. Amazing win by Teemer. He made a miraculous move with only seconds left to win it 8-7. Disappointing that Norfleet could only manage a win by Decision - especially since the guy he was wrestling last night was a substitute for Lehigh's 197 lb starter who has been competing primarily at 165 lbs this season.
  22. The PAC 12 coaches have a meeting the day before the PAC 12 tournament begins (the NIGHT before) and they work out who will be seeded where at each weight class. All of the head coaches can lobby for their guys at each weight class. Some of their seeding choices have left me baffled in the past but that WAS the way it was done in years past. Maybe it's changed but I doubt that it has.
  23. I have no idea if Woods is injured. But if he is he will have had 3 weeks to heal up before the PAC 12 tournament.
  24. UPDATE The PAC 12 dual on Saturday between Cal Poly vs. Oregon State WILL be televised on the Los Angeles PAC 12 channel according to the Oregon State wrestling website and my Sling TV channel guide for this Saturday at 2 p.m. MST. If I'm not mistaken I believe this is only the 4th wrestling dual this entire season in which a PAC 12 team has been involved that has been televised by any of the six PAC 12 Networks.
  25. Woods won his match in their penultimate dual 10-1. And judging by who Stanford had on the mat in their last dual they - apparently - just didn't want to risk injury to most of their starters.
