  1. Schultz was already world champ
  2. We also brought in John Hurlock at heavyweight, who had wrestled for U of Colorado til they dropped their program. He had pinned Big Ten champ and #3 seed John Bowlsby first round of the NCAAs in '79 before becoming a Badger.
  3. Howe did a great job considering his Achilles injury. He did reach 4 NCAA semis. Not sure what happened in the Jarrod King final. Perry was a beast, also. No shame there- that guy could bring it- brutal rider. But yeah, I wanted him to win a few too.
  4. I should have double-checked. He was a starter on a 3 time Super Bowl winner, however. I shall edit. Haselrig- Amazing!
  5. VO2 can be important- depending upon your style of wrestling. My teammate/same weight/opponent on the Badgers- the late Jeff Charland and a 3 time state champ, could run all day and had a VO2 of 5.0 L. He was lean and mean. He wrestled very controlled matches and could take breaks by riding with the legs. Mine was 3.5 L and could not run all day, but was stocky (stockier now). I wrestled chaotically and was constantly winded. Apparently 3.5 is the low side of the average for SEDENTARY ADULT MALES. Yay. Somehow we went 4-4 with each other in matches. So how important is VO2, and does it outweigh other "gifts"? I understand that Jack Cuvo could run all day, was a college AA in XC, and a two time NCAA champ.THAT's physically gifted in my humble opinion.
  6. But what IS physically gifted? A great physique, or ability other than wrestling? Randy Lewis could do phenomenal things on a trampoline/diving board, not to mention throw from any position. Ryan Lord, who wrestled for the Badgers won the 100 and 200 at State in high school track. Laurent Soucie and Sgt Gibson made World Teams in both Freestyle and Greco. Russ Hellickson could freakin run ALL DAY- amazing at 220 lbs, and beat at least half of us in the 5 mile run. Curley Culp and Steven Neal won the NCAAs AND played NFL. Neal decided to tack on a WC while he was at it.
  7. I remember him singing the Anthem to start the Northern Open back about 1979
  8. Erland would sing the National Anthem before tournaments started.
  9. The Great One got pinned by grad assistant and most excellent wrestler Timmy Cysewski in the finals of the Northern Iowa Open in December of his junior year. Wicked Headlock. Lewis went on to win at Corvallis NCAAs that year.
  10. Not to nit-pick, but Sgt Gibson won a World MILITARY Championship in Greco ( just being clear), and 2nd in the Olympics in Greco. But yes, he was feared throughout the land with his unstoppable gut-wrench. A true specimen of a man.
  11. Gonna throw Kenny Monday's hat into the ring. The man was a wreckin' machine, who could shoot or throw. Sort of like his friend Nate Carr. Both lightning fast.
  12. Ricky Stewart: 7,1,1,3 = 42 points maybe 7th is worth 3 that takes Ricky up to 45 points. Kenny Monday dnp, 2,2,1 = 40 points Dang
  13. I believe that "tie/draw" was possibly an All Star match versus Greenlee of Northern Iowa?
