  1. I can answer your first question with TWO words.......................................Recruiting.....................................Coaching
  2. Thanks for taking the time to explain that.
  3. I see Maruca has dropped to # 26 in the WrestleStat rankings top 33 at 149 lbs this week. Yet on his profile on WrestleStat he's listed at # 41.

  5. I can understand a top 20 division I wrestler losing to the # 1 ranked guy in Division II. What I don't understand is a wrestler who's ranked # 14 by WrestleStat and # 16 by The Open Mat and # 17 by Intermat losing all three of the matches he had in one day. Particularly losing to the guy from Lehigh who A. Was not Leigh's starter last season and B. Went 8-8 at 149 lbs for Lehigh last season. On the positive side for Arizona State they had four freshmen from ASU compete unattached yesterday at the Northern Colorado Open tournament and three of the four took 1st place. Namely Raimo at 125 lbs, Munoz at 174 lbs and Schultz at 285 lbs.
  6. How is Arizona State's Josh Maruca ranked # 14 in the nation by WrestleStat? He's also ranked # 17 by Intermat and # 16 by The Open Mat. I ask that after seeing his results yesterday at the Journeyman Collegiate round-robin format tournament? I mean no disrespect by asking this question but I think it's a question that needs to be asked. 149 – Josh Maruca Round one: Chris Eddins Jr. (Pitt Johnstown) DEC #14 Josh Maruca, 6-2 (Intermat has Eddins ranked as the # 1 NWCA Division II wrestler at 149 lbs - but he is a Division II guy) Round two: Bye Round three: Jimmy Hoffman (Lehigh) DEC #14 Josh Maruca, 4-1 (Note - Unranked Hoffman was 8-8 last season for Lehigh) Round four: Colston Diblasi (George Mason) DEC #14 Josh Maruca, 8-5 (NOTE - Unranked Diblasi competed last season at 165 lbs but has dropped down to 149 as a RS Senior this season) One would expect that the # 14 ,16 or 17 ranked wrestler in the nation would have won at LEAST one of these three matches yesterday? Wouldn't one?
  7. The results came from the Virginia and the Purdue websites. The Virginia results had Hall ranked # 2 and the Purdue results had him ranked # 4. So obviously they were referring to different rankings.
  8. What caught my attention was # 17 ranked Jacori Teemer - who many have said will be an AA as a freshman (or words to that effect) got beat by Virginia's unranked Justin McCoy and then in ASU's 2nd dual ASU forfeited at 157 lbs (Teemer's weight class).

  10. Apparently these three twits can't comprehend that OTHERS are going to post messages on forums that THEY have an interest in - even if it is a topic that the twits have no interest. But thanks to these three for making it clear that they are exactly the sort of twits I'm referring to here. As the old saying goes - it's better to be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt. These three have removed all doubt.
  11. It APPEARS that Brandon Kier will be Stanford's starter at 133 lbs. I write that here because Kier finished in 3rd place at the Citadel tournament yesterday and Dalton Young finished 6th. Also they had three common opponents and Kier appeared to do better against them. Common opponents for Kier and Young at the Citadel tournament yesterday: Kier won by MD (10-2) over Jake Rotunda of The Citadel and Young lost 7-1 against Rotunda Kier went 1-1 vs Kai Orine of North Carolina State - first losing to Orine 10-3 and then beating Orine (for 3rd place) 3-1 in SV OT. Young lost to Orine 8-3 Kier beat Harrison Campbell of Duke by MD (11-0) and Young pinned Campbell Kier went 5-1 at The Citadel tournament and Young went 3-2.
  12. Earlier this year, as recently as just a month or so ago, many seemed dubious that Dalton Young or Brandon Kier could make the drop to 133 lbs. Yet both of them are competing today at the Citadel tournament at 133 lbs. Young won his first match this morning by FALL in 2:05 over a P. Corwin (Unattached) and Kier won his first match this morning by MD (11-0) over H. Campbell of Duke.
  13. I did not see that listed on the results posted by Arizona State. https://thesundevils.com/news/2019/11/1/wrestling-gold-defeats-maroon-in-wrestle-offs.aspx

  15. I noticed that two of the matchups in the wrestle-offs last night didn't occur at all. That being Tanner Hall over Garret Ryan (Columbia 2018 graduate) at 285 lbs and Anthony Valencia vs. Trey Munoz at 174 lbs.
  16. I noticed those things as well when I saw the lineup for tonight's ASU wrestle-offs on the ASU wrestling webpage this morning: Friday nights matchups Bout 1 (HWY) - Tanner Hall vs. Garret Ryan Bout 2 (174) - Anthony Valencia vs. Trey Munoz Bout 3 (125) - Aaron Valenzuela vs. Nicholas Raimo Bout 4 (197) - Cade Belshay vs. Brady Daniels Bout 5 (149) - Dillon Ulrey vs. Josh Maruca Bout 6 (165) - Josh Shields vs. Ryan Moltz Bout 7 (141) - Cory Crooks vs. Navonte Demison Bout 8 (133) - Josh Kramer vs. Julian Chlebove Bout 9 (184) - Austin Clayton vs. Zahid Valencia Bout 10 (157) - Hunter Balk vs. Jacori Teemer My GUESS would be that Courtney and Norfleet will be the starters at 125 and 197. The latter was pretty much assumed to be the case as far as I know. Another GUESS on my part would be tat Raimo and Schultz will both be redshirted. I also noticed that the 125 lbs & 197 lbs matchups scheduled for tonight (Valenzuela vs. Raimo & Belshay vs. Daniels) were the same matchups that were scheduled yesterday at 125 lbs & 197 lbs.
  17. Found on the ASU twitter account: 125 - Raimo vs Valenzuela 133 - Kramer vs Digena 133 - Chlebove vs W. Pickren 141 - Demison vs E. Pickren 149 - Torres vs Ulrey 197 - Good vs Norfleet 197 - Belshay vs Daniel Winners determine Friday's matchups!
  18. That article was posted online TWO MONTHS AGO (August 28th). I remember posting a link to it soon after it was available online in either late August of early September.
  19. It's 100 percent TRUE that "if Shields did, in fact return to 157 lbs, I THINK he would have to be considered the favorite to win the 2020 NCAA championship at that weight" so it's actually your comment that "isn't true at all". But please continue on with your anger based comments responding to comments by others taken completely OUT OF CONTEXT. By all means.........continue on your path. And I will choose to add you to my IGNORE list so I won't have to read anything more from you.
  20. You will notice I said " It won't be decided for several more months" so any comments on this are nothing but conjecture at this point. You are certainly entitled to your conjecture just as I am.
  21. It won't be decided for several more months what Arizona State's lineup will be for 2019-2020 BUT I don't think the above will be their lineup. It's really difficult to say what it will be at this point as there are a number of things that just haven't been determined yet. BUT I think Courtney's a lock at 125 lbs and Josh Kramer and Cory Crooks will be the starters at 133 & 141 lbs. Also I think there is a possibility that Josh Shields could drop back down to 157 lbs (where he was until this past season) and that would give ASU Shields at 157 lbs, A. V at 165 lbs and Z. V. at 174 lbs, Norfleet at 184 lbs and Jacob Good at 197 lbs. IF Shields did, in fact, return to 157 lbs, I think he would have to be considered the favorite to win the 2020 NCAA championship at that weight as he's defeated all of the top returners at that weight class in the past.
  22. It will be interesting to see who ends up being Stanford's starter at 133 lbs this season. Personally I think it will end up being either Dalton Young or Brandon Kier . This is how I see Stanford's lineup for 2019-2020 (just my opinion as of this moment in time): 125 lbs - Gabe Townsell - 4th year Senior - 3 time NCAA qualifier 133 lbs - Dalton Young - RS Sophomore OR Brandon Kier - 4th year Senior 141 lbs - Real Woods - RS Freshman - 22-1 last season at 141 lbs while being redshirted 149 lbs - Require van der Merwe - RS Junior - 2019 PAC 12 champ at 149 lbs - 2019 NCAA qualifier 157 lbs - Dominick Mandarino - True Junior OR Tyler Eischens - RS Freshman 165 lbs - Shane Griffith - RS Freshman - 25-2 last season at 165 lbs while being redshirted 174 lbs - Jared Hill - RS Junior - Placed third at 165 pounds at the 2019 Pac-12 Championships OR Foster Karmon - RS Sophomore 184 lbs - Judah Duhm - True Junior - 2019 Runner-up at 184 pounds at the Pac-12 Championships 197 lbs - Nathan Traxler - RS Junior - 2019 PAC 12 champ at 197 lbs - 2 time NCAA qualifier (Round of 12 in 2019) 285 lbs - Hadyn Maley - RS Sophomore - 2019 Runner-up at the Pac-12 Championships - 2019 NCAA qualifier I think this lineup for Stanford for 2019-2020 would be VERY competitive with Arizona State's lineup and a few months ago I thought ASU would have to be favored to win the PAC 12 in 2020. Now I think this lineup for Stanford would beat ASU and allow Stanford to repeat as PAC 12 champs.
  23. I'm sure you are right about that. Dalton Young, however, was the most recent Stanford wrestler listed at 141 lbs on the updated roster who has competed at 133 lbs. Young last competed at 133 lbs at the 2019 Southern Scuffle on January 1st. The only other Stanford 141 lb'er who has competed at 133 lbs (in college) is Brandon Kier and he last competed at 133 lbs back in November of 2017. True Freshman Fabian Santillan competed at 138 lbs as a Senior in H.S. And his weight class has gone from 113 lbs in 2015-2016, 120 lbs in 2016-2017, 126 lbs in 2017-2018 to 138 (12 lbs increase) in 2018-2019. P.S. 141 and 157 both have a slew of guys at those two weight classes for Stanford (according to their updated roster).
  24. Also it appears that two Stanford underclassmen wrestlers who were on the 2018-2019 roster are not on the 2019-2020 roster. Namely Brandon Dallavia who was listed as a RS Sophomore last season at 165 lbs. Dallavia went 7-2 last season for Stanford at 165 & 174 lbs. (He was 5-0 at 174 lbs & 2-2 at 165 lbs) and Austin Flores (184 lbs) who was listed incorrectly on the 2019 Stanford team roster as a Senior. He was, in fact a RS Junior last season. Flores was 6-5 last season at 184 lbs for Stanford. I had Dallavia penciled in as the likely starter for the upcoming season at 174 lbs. Have to wonder why he's no longer on their roster.
  25. https://gostanford.com/roster.aspx?path=wrestling&roster=1731&sort=weight First thing I noticed on the newly updated roster is that Dalton Young, who has been projected to be the starter for Stanford this season at 133 lbs., is listed at 141 lbs. And there are only two Stanford wrestlers listed at 133 lbs. That being Anthony Le (True Junior) who has a career record at Stanford of 10-17 in the last two seasons and Luciano Arroyo (True Freshman) According to this newly updated Stanford wrestling team roster the Stanford wrestling team for the 2020 season will be: 125 lbs Gabriel Townsell - 4th year Senior - 19-12 last season at 125 lbs - Place 3rd at 2019 PAC 12 tournament - Three time NCAA qualifier Logan Ashton - True Freshman - 2019 NHSCA Senior national champion - 2 time Georgia H.S. State champion and 4 time finalist Jackson SiSario - True Freshman - 3 time Georgia H.S. State champion 133 lbs Anthony Le - True Junior - 5-8 at 133 & 141 lbs last season Luciano Arroyo - True Freshman - 4 time California H.S. State placer (7th, 3rd, 6th & 6th) 141 lbs Real Woods - RS Freshman - 22-1 last season at 141 lbs. Won the National Collegiate Open last March and the Princeton Open last November. Runner-up at the Southern Scuffle last January Brandon Kier - 4th year Senior - 4-6 last season at 141 lbs - 2019 PAC 12 runner-up at 141 lbs. Jack Ramalia - RS Sophomore - 12-9 last season at 141 lbs Dalton Young - RS Sophomore - 6-9 last season at 133 & 141 lbs Steven Abbate - RS Sophomore - 3-4 last season at 141 & 149 lbs Tony Williams - RS Freshman - 13-7 last season at 141 & 149 lbs Fabian Santillian - True Freshman - 2 time Colorado H.S. State champion - 2017 Reno T.O.C. champion and two time Reno T.O.C. runner-up (2018 & 2019) 149 lbs Require van der Merwe - RS Junior - 24-8 last season at 149 lbs - 2019 PAC 12 champion at 149 lbs - 2019 NCAA qualifier Jake Barry - RS Junior - Did not compete last season due to injury Jaden Abas - True Freshman - 2 time California State champion 157 lbs Dominick Mandarino - True Junior - 21-9 last season at 157 & 165 lbs - Placed 3rd at 2019 Southern Scuffle at 157 lbs - 2018 Roadrunner Open champion at 157 lbs Tyler Eischens - RS Freshman - 19-6 last season at 157 & 165 lbs - 2019 California Collegiate Open champion at 157 lbs - Placed 5th at the 2019 National Collegiate Open at 157 lbs last March Gabe Dinette - RS Freshman - Did not compete last season - 3 time Colorado H.S.
