  1. Carr and who is the other Erie guy? Bruce coached in Erie but came from Jersey. also nice to see Bloomsburg represented in the finals. Is this their last finalist?
  2. HS...Rolled to a 172-10 record for Erie Cathedral Prep...Won state title as a senior with a 46-0 mark...Won state title as a junior with a 50-0 mark...Took second at states as a sophomore and placed as a freshman as well. Extremely impressive credentials for all 4 years, not coming on late but a state placer as a freshman.
  3. as far as this scenario never getting called, that's just not true, it happens all the time just maybe not on the big stage.
  4. college falls are 1 seconds, and according to those rules, could've been called a pin. Clearly met the criteria for a pin IMO
  5. so the question needs to be asked, what has happened to HS wrestling in IA? i'm thinking it's in the water here in PA, and that encompasses the entire state since most of IA's PA guys are from western PA and it's debatable whether eastern PA is truly the best.
  6. being a guy who wrestled in PA, I too loved the IA style even purchased myself a Hawks jacket in the day. So no one can fault these guys for going to IA, just trying to give credit where credit is due. And that is not with IA HS wrestling.
  7. all credit here goes to the state of PA, kudos to the Keystone State for producing 5 state champions and sending them to IA. UNPRECEDENTED. Lee, Desanto, Murin, Young, and Kemmerer all some of PA's finest.
  8. Should jimmy Cinnabon be banned for sensationalizing an injury? I vote yes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. i would expect all college Olympic redshirts to be there or what is the point of the redshirt.
  10. depending on match circumstances, leverage > strength does that mean Bo would win vs Snyder I don't think so. But, IMO strength would not be the determining factor. And now that Russia has some live tape of Nickal, they will guarantee make some adjustments vs a savvy opponent such as Nickal. Just as Sad did vs Snyder.
  11. i'm not saying either of one DT or Cox can't beat Yazdani, just saying Yazdani will be the Olympic favorite. Returning WC at the weight would be a slight favorite over Cox if he's our rep. Yes DT has beaten him, but not after a serious knee injury which would make him the underdog.
  12. What’s Jaret Lane’s future at Lehigh after a prolific HS career, too small? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. if the question was best wrestling area in the US through HS and college, then PA would be correct, as evidenced above with the hundreds of youth wrestlers packing gyms across the state, and # of NCAA qualifiers. but internationally speaking, there is no "hotbed", they come from all over and most PA 'greats' peak early because of the 100 matches every 3 months at the youth level.
  14. i see Beard wrestled for Malvern Prep, from where did he originate, in PA?
  15. Zeke Jones, Bloomsburg, PA? was he there getting trained by the Bonomo's?
  16. well done to all of our guys competing in a difficult environment, it's got to be difficult wrestling just a few short days after traveling that far vs world class competition!~

  18. nice first post Mr. Wax. i'll assume you're not from State College.
  19. have to disagree with Cox getting cautioned out. He's a savvy wrestler and wouldn't allow this to happen. No way. and let's be honest, this is a possibility, can't say it won't happen just yet.
  20. as humble as the interview is....i hope DT pins him again! and if Cox would drop and beat DT, I'll take Cox over Yazdani in a close sweaty battle, 3-1
