  1. If his long term goals are to open and run a wrestling club, the South Jersey/SE Pa area is perfect for him. Compared to Nebraska, large population and excellent youth wrestling. Not to knock Nebraska wrestling but Jordan back in his home state would be huge.
  2. John Reich was very tough. 3rd(behind Dave Shultz and Mike Sheets) and lost to Sheets in finals 1983. The 1982-83 team was very tough(EIWA champions) and had two AA's and coming into the tournament, I believe 5 wrestlers seeded in the top 8. This had to be one of the toughest teams that Navy ever had as far as wrestling. As a side note, Reich injured his neck wrestling freestyle against Dave Shultz and it was a debilitating injury that has affected him his entire life. Very bad injury to a great guy.
  3. If he got on this forum, he could find plenty of people to argue with him!:)
  4. There is no comparison between the way Retherford wrestled and RBY. You would have to be an anti-Zain fan to think he stalled. RBY on the other hand, definitely is one of the "best stallers". That's from a fan of PSU.
  5. I wonder if it hurt the attendance issues? I know I often go to AA and AAA but this year I didn't go to both because I could catch up on flo.
  6. Brackets or final results anywhere?
  7. Just mentioned this in another post. I wrestled in NJ and strongly dislike the NJ attitude on the mat! Goodale reinforces that Jersey attitude. Plenty of NJ Guys do not!
  8. Never mind, I didn't see your reply. Congratulations! We need athlethics and academics! I often wonder why you would go to Ivy vs great Public when you get no $$.
  9. Wait, always thought you wrestled at VA Tech? If you got into these schools........................why Va Tech?
  10. While my favorite wresters are named Hall, Marinelli and Joseph, I need to address the......Rutgers-Rider Match. I was very interested in this match of NJ vs NJ. I traveled down to the match and have to say I was very disappointed with the matches. Aside from the boring wrestling, I was not happy with the show the Rutgers Staff exhibited. I can't criticize the Rider wrestlers(except for their inability to win close matches with a sold out Rider Arena) , however, Goodale and Company were a disgrace. I love what Rutgers has done with their program but PLEASE... act like you've been there before! R
  11. Well, Cenzo has some pretty good upper body guys in the PSU room , that's for sure.
  12. Absolutely, I definitely should've mentioned Lehigh. Didn't know they were top 10 though all those years, especially in the 80's.
  13. I guess I don't remember back to the 70's but Pa in the 80's was PSU, Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, Pitt and Clarion. Slippery Rock was fading but those others had to be top 15.
  14. Sorry to go off topic but is McCormick the son of the Army wrestler with the same name from the mid 80"s?
  15. Is the real recruiter Morningstar/Brands Bros or is is Jody Strittmatter?
  16. A Rider win over Rutgers would be big for them. Traditionally, Rider has been the better program but Rutgers in the last 5-7 years has been the team. Impressive that Rider, Rutgers , and Princeton are all pretty solid teams. Rider's recruits are not near as good as the others, I feel, but still have been doing well. Not sure how Binghamton let Dellevechia go but he's tough.
  17. I have to say that I was "wow'd" by him. He "Bo'd" both Nickal and Snyder. Interesting that he's likely unseeded? I really didn't see a weakness in him against two animals.
  18. I believe he was listed along with Rocky Jordan as the 184 pound option in the match on Saturday?
  19. And to think how Nolf smashed him when they wrestled last year.
  20. I will add a NC kid who did very well and although he didn't AA, he had an excellent DI career and that was Frank Hickman. Don't even think he won a state title in NC.
  21. If we talk about Beard, don't we have to mention Gavin Hoffman? I still think they have plenty of time to prove themselves, however.
  22. There was an entire class which looked like they would have multiple titles and medals.. Alton's, Kindig, Peppleman, Hess, Cowburn, Cunningham, evan craig and others(all 2010 Pa class). They all had stellar HS careers. Always wondered how Peppleman's tilts would work for him in college.. not too well.
  23. Are we sure Lee isn't legitimately injured?
  24. I may not be as critical as some but a 3,4th place finish even from a 4timer from a top state is not too shabby. Not AA'ing though is tough to take as a Pa fan but we have plenty of 1-2 timers(and sometimes place finishers ) who make up for the others. Weircioch was a 3 timer and 4 time finalist who was a big disapointment. I do think the HEW could come into play.
