    A great show of sportsmanship

    Garrett DePies of Random Lake, WI was the injured wrestler. I was there too....bum deal for sure...the ref may have had his hands tied per the third injury timeout rule. But....he could have rolled over and bridged and still won the match. I believe the other wrestler was Todd Christensen of St. Croix Falls? 1991 maybe.

    Is Jason Nolf overrated?

    Lee Kemp was a student of the game...he spent years breaking down technique and would have adjusted nicely to today's game. He also had one heckuva bow and arrow to go along with his snatch single. To be fair, I think that Carr and Nolf or Monday and Nolf or Krieger/Heffernan and Nolf would have been great matches, or McIlravy/Nolf. Lee Kemp was pretty big at 158. We had 5 hour weigh-ins back then, or whatever the coaches agreed upon. But make no mistake, this Nolf is a hammer!

    Did Tony Nelson Stall?

    I'll put that heavyweight who danced on the edge with a foot out of bounds in the national finals a few years ago from Lehigh in the mix with Nelson. Can't believe the referee let him do that.

    Shortest heavyweight?

    Fred McGaver was an AA heavyweight for Marquette back in 1979...he couldn't be taller than 5'9".
  5. Gotta respectfully disagree with ya Tobus. While I agree that his offensive line and schemes are unparalleled in the NFL, there's no denying that the guy isn't freaking clutch. This coming from a Packer fan. Brady IS the GOAT- his high skill level and leadership have been incredible. Jim Brown was bigger than the linebackers that he ran over, and other RBs were pretty great too- for instance Dickerson hit 10,000 yards 7 games faster than Brown. Hard to dispute Brown's superiority as an athlete, though I would rank Bo Jackson number one in the talent arena. Brown's dominance on the lacrosse field doesn't carry the same weight as Bo's MLB greatness.

    Hands to the face

    For that matter, forehead stumping isn't cool, either

    Dave Schultz/Royce Alger Story

    Found this... Randy Lewis on Dave Schultz « on: February 01, 2014, 03:21:00 AM » I pulled Randy's post from the mat... With the Dave Schultz tournament going on this weekend, and my good friend Royce Alger telling his story about his first workout with Dave Schultz on Facebook, I thought it would be appropriate to tell my story of my first and ONLY workout with the great Dave Schultz. Dave was a great friend of mine, and we were teammates many times and were at training camps together many times, but I only got on the mat with him one time, for a total of just one minute. I would often roll around with bigger wrestlers in practice, but I was always afraid to wrestle Dave Schultz. Dave was the nicest guy in the world off the mat, but I knew that on the mat he was a different animal. I had seen enough of Dave Schultz in matches and in practice to know that on the mat he was as Stephen A Smith would say “A BAD MAN!!!” I always felt like if I were to wrestle him, I would be unable to protect myself. It turns out I was correct!!! I remember one time at the 1984 Olympic training camp and Dave didn’t have a partner and he asked me if I wanted to roll around a little. I said “Dave, I am not ever going to wrestle with you until I am retired! I don’t want to get hurt!” One year later, I had temporarily retired, and I was at a world team practice and guys were switching partners, and Dave said to me “Lewboo, now that you are retired you want to roll with me?” I said “Not really but I will for a little bit.” Just as I got paired up with Dave, coach Jim Humphries, who was running the practice announced, “1 minute periods, par terre, world team member on top!” I thought, really, one minute underneath Dave Schultz, that doesn’t sound very fun! Well, it took about 15 seconds for Dave to get my right foot placed up over my left ear, bending my body in a very painful way! My knee, my hip, my back, my neck, and my shoulder were all being wrenched at the same time! Pain was shooting through my entire body, and I was trying to roll over onto my back as fast as I could! Unfortunately for me I couldn’t move! Somehow, my neck and head got twisted so that my mouth and nose were stuck in the mat, and I couldn’t breathe. Not only was my body in severe pain, but now I was also suffocating, and I couldn’t reach Dave with either of my hands to tap out. My body somehow got stuck in a position where I couldn’t roll over, and Dave kept cranking harder and harder to try and turn me. I was stuck in this position for about 45 seconds, in severe pain and suffocating, unable to turn over and just as I started to black out, coach Humphries saved my LIFE by blowing the whistle. Dave let me go, and I rolled over onto my back, sobbing uncontrollably, and hyperventilating trying to catch my breath. Dave looked at me and said, wow, I can’t believe you didn’t turn over, I was really cranking hard. I said I was trying as hard as I could to turn over, but I couldn’t. I cried like a baby for about 5 minutes straight after that, and I never wrestled with Dave Schultz again. I have told this story to many other wrestlers when they ask me about Dave, and I follow it up by saying yeah, Dave was pretty good on top, but he couldn’t turn me! Writing this brings tears to my eyes and I and the wrestling world miss Dave so much, he was such a great person and such a great wrestler.

    Great work ethic, great drop-step and reflexes, loves to tackle... excellent traits for an inside linebacker.

    Were I an NFL GM, I might tender an offer to Kyle Snyder as a free agent to try out for inside linebacker.

    Hands to the Face Penalty - New Emphasis

    Seriously? Disadvantage to operate with an eye-poke or neck-jam. Getting jammed in the face discourages leg shots and slows the game down. Not to mention the potential for chronic injuries.

    You seem to forget how freakin' tired you get in a 7 + minute match, with some gorilla on your back pounding you down to the earth if he can, and you can't candy-@$$ it underneath ( I'm talking NCAA points could be more, just saying)
