  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I should have double-checked. He was a starter on a 3 time Super Bowl winner, however. I shall edit. Haselrig- Amazing!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I remember him singing the Anthem to start the Northern Open back about 1979
  7. Erland would sing the National Anthem before tournaments started.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. I believe that "tie/draw" was possibly an All Star match versus Greenlee of Northern Iowa?
  13. Wasn't that the year AFTER Brewer won it?
  14. Lou Banach was also pinned by Mitch Shelton of Okie State that year in the dual, before eking out a 3-1 win at the NCAAs enroute to his second title.
  15. Going back in time... Dave Osenbaugh of Iowa State pins Lou Banach in the dual in Jan of 1981. Banach pinned Osenbaugh in 1:22 a month later to get even.
  16. Not judging her, more like chastising USA Wrestling for running the article in a way that has a political bent. I guess anything to stir up interest? Thanks for comments. You boys are like a family to me. ( I miss KMF)
  17. Hey LJB,,,,its politics- sort of like proselytizing. You bring up Jesus on this board and you get crucified for it....but USA Wrestling can push the "agenda", or pander to a few, and anyone who thinks it's out of line is a bigot, jerk, pig, whatever. Think about it. You want it both ways. And I personally give zero F's what you think of me. Let the genie fly.
  18. Comparing this to Jordan Burrough's lifestyle is not apples to oranges, not matter how you slice it, even though these choices are being "legitimized" by the msm on an hourly basis. Not blind. Just a sad indictment on our world.
  19. To be fair, the middleweights are usually much, much more competitive and technically sound than the heavies, especially back then. Just my humble opinion. Yet, there's a reason that Yarygin has one of the greatest tournaments in the world named after him- AMAZING.
  20. Not real big on Jenna's sex life or her taking on a life partner. Not sure why it is relevant to anything wrestling. Reminds me of when SI decided to make a big deal out of a high school QB coming out of the closet. I'm fairly certain I'll be put into TheMat jail for this. Why not do some actual reporting on the techniques someone actually uses against international competition? Is the Mat that hard up for content?
  21. Wayne Wells pins 4 in the Olympics. No one talks about this...too soon? Gable pinned 3. Ben Peterson pinned 3. Just sayin'
