  1. Apparently a few of you are unaware that Real Woods has already entered the transfer portal AND that he said in a mini-interview that he was looking to transfer to an Ivy League school. So this discussion about academics and financial aid packages appears a bit foolish at best.
  2. Is when Stanford University will begin their fall 2020 Autumn quarter (which is only 2 months in length). The start date is September 14, 2020 and it ends Nov. 20, 2020. I bring this up because of the status of Real Woods and Shane Griffith. Woods entered the NCAA transfer portal within days of the announcement that the 2020-2021 season would be the LAST season for the Stanford wrestling team. Shane Griffith has not entered the NCAA transfer portal and appears to be staying at Stanford for their last wrestling season. But as it pertains to Real Woods one has to wonder if he is, in fact, going to transfer elsewhere, or simply stay put at Stanford. With only 3 weeks to go before classes begin at Stanford it would seem he's running out of time to transfer elsewhere. I'm a little shocked that Woods is the ONLY Stanford wrestler who has entered the transfer portal. At least he's the only one I know of to date who has entered the transfer portal.
  3. Namely Little Rock and Cal State Univ. at Bakersfield. CSUB wrestling team roster for 2020-2021 season Little Rock wrestling team roster for 2020-2021 season Underclassmen who were on the 2020 Little Rock wrestling team roster who appear to be missing on the 2021 Little Rock wrestling team roster are the following: 133 lbs - Cody Mirander - 2020 True FR from Allen, TX 141 lbs - Trent Dooley - 2020 True FR from Allen, TX 149 lbs - Korbin Riedel - 2020 True FR from Tonganoxie, KS 174 lbs - Cash Jones - 2020 True FR from Bentonville, AR (He was the starter for Little Rock at 174 lbs last season) 197 lbs - Steve Elwell - 2020 True FR from from Knob Noster, MO 285 lbs - Gunner Cash - 2020 Junior from Shawnee, OK 285 lbs - Miles Santiago - 2020 True FR from Sunset, LA Wrestlers who are listed as members of the 2021 Little Rock wrestling team by WrestleStat who are NOT listed on the updated Little Rock roster for 2021 are: 174 lbs - Triston Willis - 2021 RS FR - Transfer from Oklahoma State (according to a number of articles from May of this year) 197 lbs - Bear Hughes - 2021 RS JR - Transfer from Oklahoma State (according to a number of article from June of this year)
  4. And they also have delayed the start of a number of Olympic sports in the M.A.C. I have to wonder if this will carry-over to the schools in the M.A.C. with wrestling teams. Those M.A.C. wrestling programs are: Buffalo, Central Michigan, Kent State, Northern Illinois, Ohio, and affiliate members Missouri (since 2013) and SIU Edwardsville (since 2018). https://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/2020/08/08/mid-american-conference-cancels-fall-football-season/3326139001/
  5. Trying to argue or discuss anything with someone who is on a mission to prove how utterly clueless they are is - in a nutshell - a waste of time & energy. So I, for one, won't bother to do so.
  6. Then your understanding is lacking. From an online discussion on this from last January: "QUESTION - Do Ivy Leagues accept transfer students?" "ANSWER - YES, YOU CAN GET INTO AN IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE, like Harvard, Princeton, or Yale…by transferring. ... In other words, if you need that spelled out — it's easier to get in to the Ivy League, and the Ivy League's top schools (Princeton, Harvard, Yale) as a transfer student."
  7. Sounded like Real Woods is wanting to transfer to an Ivy League school and that's why he entered the transfer portal when he did as there are certain Ivy League rules regarding transfers that entered into that decision.
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fGoB0werTE Including Jackson DiSario, his father, Nick Stemmet, Judah Duhm, Gabe Dinette and Real Woods.

  10. Moved up 22 lbs from Junior year to Senior year? From 160 to 182 lbs. Yikes. Have to wonder what they've been feeding that boy.
  11. Winnemucca? Oh I guess you are referring to the town that I refer to as LOSE-A-MUCHA
  12. Lots of unhappy folks in the PAC 12 - especially towards the nitwit who they chose as their commissioner. https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/john_canzano/2020/07/canzano-pac-12-presidents-and-chancellors-put-the-squeeze-on-conference-headquarters.html
  13. What you fail to take into account here is that EVERY team in the conference would have the option of having one (or two) of these three team duals. Also I did mention that they could add a non-conference dual to have at least two duals per team.
  14. What you fail to take into account here is that EVERY team in the conference would have the option of having one (or two) of these three team duals. Also I did mention that they could add a non-conference dual to have at least two duals per team.
  15. You and I MAY be referring to two different things here. When I referred (above) to CONFERENCE three team duals what I was referring to was School A hosts the dual. Schools B and C compete against School A but do NOT dual against one another at School A. Say each school does that once or twice per season. That gives them two matches and only use one of the NCAA limited dates to do so. I'm thinking you were referring to all three schools having a dual on the same day against the other two teams. If they bring in another (non-conference) school and have them dual all three schools all the better as then all schools involved would have at least two matches in one day.
  16. I have been a proponent of three team duals (in conference) for a long time. To me it makes a LOT of sense to do that. Don't know about 4 team duals tho. Just because I am a Boise State fan (and therefore a Mtn. West fan) I'll throw another log on this fire and suggest that MAYBE the Mountain West Conference could be convinced to add wrestling as a Conference sport. Three of the current Mtn. West schools have a wrestling team (Air Force, Fresno State and Wyoming). IF the PAC 12 were to fold up their wrestling "tent" that MIGHT be an alternative to the MPSF - IF the Mtn West could be talked into doing that. However, that having been said, the long-time Mtn. West Commissioner doesn't seem open to any new ideas similar to that. The term "stick in the mud" applies pretty well to Craig Thompson. I have a question for those who are knowledgeable about Big 12 Conference wrestling. Am I correct in my assumption that the Big 12 wrestling conference championships are ALWAYS held in Tulsa, Oklahoma? If so - WHY? To me that seems like a good reason to NOT be affiliated with the Big 12 for wrestling.

  18. Excellent recap and summation here Idaho. I agree that there needs to be a Western conference that is centered around the schools with wrestling programs in the PAC 12 and their affiliated schools who are in the West, i..e, not Little Rock, as well as the Mtn West schools (Fresno State, Wyoming & Air Force) and possibly Utah Valley, N.Colo. and Cal Baptist. But that's going to be a tough sell IMO. The years when those schools were basically independents in the WWC were pretty rough years for those programs. It will be difficult for them to leave the Big 12 to go back to something similar to what they were in back then. The MPSF might well be the solution for all of this.
  19. By way of comparison Oregon sponsors 7 men's sports and 11 women's sports for a total of 18 sports overall. Boise State was sponsoring that same number (7 & 11) until they (ridiculously) chose to drop the brand new men's baseball team and the women's swimming & diving teams earlier this month.
  20. Stanford is dropping the following men's and women's sports AFTER the 2020-2021 school year: Men's Sports Men's Rowing Men's Volleyball Men's Wrestling Women's Sports Field Hockey Women's Sailing Squash Synchronized Swimming Lightweight Rowing Co-Ed sport Co-ed Sailing Yet they are keeping these Men's and Women's sports: Men's gymnastics, Women's Beach Volleyball, Women's Gymnastics, Women's Lacrosse, Women's Rowing and Women's Water Polo. ONE of those five women's sports SHOULD have been cut instead of cutting the wrestling team. Particularly either Beach Volleyball or Rowing.
  21. Yes, they have no problem with the minimum. They had a ridiculous number of sports sponsored at Stanford (and still do). According to the Stanford athletics website they sponsor 16 men's sports and 20 women's sports. Eliminating 11 of those sports would bring the number down to 25 I believe. I can understand why they felt the need to eliminate some sports - truly I do - however cutting the wrestling program is NOT one of the sports they should even be thinking of cutting. Especially since Stanford won their very first PAC 10/PAC 12 wrestling championship just one year ago (2019).
  22. 3x N.J. state champ, NCAA star confused, hopeful after Stanford drops wrestling https://www.nj.com/bergen/2020/07/3x-nj-state-champ-ncaa-star-confused-hopeful-after-stanford-drops-wrestling.html
  23. Where is the proof of this? Never mind...........found it: https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6757046-real-woods-enters-the-transfer-portal?fbclid=IwAR38ynZorY9wWzDT9yviFbMykADagIRLJQPoQZAxVm_1O4BZEtmQ-NaosNc
  24. 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
  25. 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
