  1. I don't think that you CAN wrestle with a prosthetic limb. Too hard unless padded to the utt. Robles didn't seem to need one.
  2. Andy Rein 2, 6, 1 with Olympic Silver kicker Rick Lawinger 2,1
  3. That Tarpley is one heckuvan entertaining writer.
  4. Joe Williams 7,1,1,1 with 10 US National Freestyle titles.
  5. I can think of some coach's kids who turned out pretty tough. Darren Abel. Kip Kristoff Peery Bros Kyven Gadson David Carr Kennedy and Quincy Monday
  6. Barry Davis 7,1,1,1 made two Olympic teams Randy Lewis 2,1,1, 7 with one arm, made two Olympic teams and one ill-advised gator roll from making a third.
  7. Matt Reiss - 1 (as a true freshman) and 8.
  8. You say Robin Reed.....I say BRENDAN FRASER
  9. Russ Hellickson told me once that Curly Culp would have crushed him. Of course, Russ was a 190 lber in those days...and Curly was toying with the heavies.
  10. May as well ask the question while here...did the Brands Brothers ever have a go at it in an official match? How did it turn out?
  11. Agreed! Jim Scherr pancaking Khardartsev in 1989 World Cup, at the height of Khardartsev's run...https://www.flowrestling.org/video/5098669-1989-world-cup-jim-scherr-vs-makharbek-khadartsev
  12. Nate didn't red-shirt ( was pretty dominant as a true freshman). http://www.wrestlingstats.com/ncaa/pdf/brackets/NCAA 1980.pdf Eight minute matches in those days 2-3-3.....Lord help you if your opponent chose top in the second and threw the legs in right away. Of course, Gable didn't ascend to varsity status as a freshman due to the rules at the time.
  13. Its a screw job because a: the extra point should never have been awarded b: Lewis wins on criteria anyway and c: even when you win a court case, you still feel like you've just been gutted
  14. Years ago, similar things were going on at Iowa. From what I understand, King Mueller was a returning NCAA bronze medalist and defeated Jimmy Zalesky in wrestle offs, but Gable put him in at 158 anyway, and Jimmy responded with a 5th and 3 titles. https://iwcoa.net/hall-of-fame-2/king-mueller/ Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Also, Dean Phinney was a returning NCAA bronze medalist, but Lou Banach unseated him for the job. I imagine that big Lou defeated Dean, but not sure about any scores. From what I've seen and heard from other programs, if the coach wants wrestler A in there, despite what B does, A will get the nod.
  15. You got some guys twice near the bottom of the list
  16. Olympic medal(s) shouldn't be criteria here because we are down to six or seven weights instead of the more reasonable ten. Also, you have more former Soviets in the Olympic pool now.

    Kenny Monday DNP, 2, 2, 1 Andy Rein DNP, 2, 6, 1
  18. His Big Ten brackets were brutal. Kellen Russel, Michael Thorn, Jimmy Kennedy, Andrew Alton, Reece Humphrey to name a few. I recall several matches that could have went either way, depending upon the ref's judgement calls.
  19. Mills/Gonzales was incredible in person.
  20. Kinseth was going to get the OW no matter what anyone else did that weekend. 9 pins in a row to end the season!
  21. Hicks - Trizzino in '79 was a snooze-fest, as was the subsequent DQ of Bud Palmer 45 minutes later vs Mark Lieberman. Enjoy this! https://www.si.com/vault/1979/03/05/823414/the-kids-all-heart-lehighs-mark-lieberman-is-not-the-most-talented-of-college-wrestlers-but-hes-the-guttiest--and-the-best
  22. If Banach would have hit that last throw attempt, he would have won the match. That being said, it had to have been the dumbest match I've ever seen Banach wrestle, and the smartest and toughest match I had seen Schultz perform on an equal opponent. Which is why it ended up being a major decision- Schultz.
