  1. As you and I both know, you are way more up on this stuff than I am. I defer to you, sir. Gracias!
  2. Michael Fujimori attended Clackamas, too. He wasn't the guy I had in mind, but he is a JuCo guy. About him, when reading his bio, how did he have any eligibility? https://thesundevils.com/sports/wrestling/roster/michael-fujimori/6516
  3. Not exactly accurate: Josh D'Silviera - NJCAA champ at 197 for Ellsworth CC by way of Miami, FL in 2013. I feel as though there is one more guy there from the Zeke era from the NJCAA. Before that: Ricardo Serment via Triton College (River Grove, IL) in about 2004 Cain Velasquez via Iowa Central CC in 2002 Dana Holland via Iowa Central CC in 2000 NJCAA guys can move on after one year, provided they passed the NCAA clearing house coming out of high school. If not, I know the rule used to read that they were to stay through earning their associate's degrees. Zeke should be calling Josh at Clackamas CC about his guys and Joe at North East Oklahoma about his guys. You just never know who will hit.
  4. Leno putting Robin Williams on his back. That was great.
  5. Correct! I'm sorry for the mistakes, and thank you for correcting them. Yes to Midlands! Wasn't hosts last title the one surrounded by controversy against one of his own student-athletes?
  6. When a young Pat McCaffrey was leaving Iowa (after his freshman year in Illinois) to chase his third high school title in PA, wasn't he going to attend a private school in PA while living with Cary in Maryland?

    Lee Kemp

    Not gonna lie, I geeked out when he friended me on Facebook a few years back. I saw the request and went into junior high girl mode, "HE wants to be (Facebook) friends with ME?" Giggle-giggle-giggle! Nice dude and really solid movie. I'm happy more people are seeing it.
  8. Mike Zadick? How long does Donny Pritzlaff stay an assistant coach? Jon Reader? Scott Moore?
  9. If I am not mistaken, Cary remains close with Bruce Burnett, former HC at Navy from 2000-2013. Kolat may have had a leg (or two) up on that job opportunity in more ways than one. I wonder if he will be able to get some of these top end academic studs who consider the Ivies, Northwestern, Standford, Michigan, as options to shift their mindsets to a service academy. As a veteran, I hope he can. Psyched for Cary and Navy; bummed for Campbell.
  10. I may have that wrong, but I remember hearing a number of times that TC and the Williams boys are cousins. I could very well be mixing up relationships between Harvey Twisters, but that is what I am remembering. Great additions!
  11. Low single Cheap tilt and Guillotine I sucked on bottom, so... sit out? I've watched Megaludis and Suriano do it to perfection and think, "so that's what that is supposed to resemble. Huh..." As a dude in his mid-40s, 100 percent different game plan.
  12. This is a weird list indeed. Joe Williams - 4x HS champ, 7, 1, 1, 1 in college, then a 2004 Olympian, a two-time world silver medalist, and five-time World Team member at two different weights. TJ Williams (Joe's younger brother) - 4x HS champ, NJCAA runner-up, then 1, 3, 1 at Iowa, finishing with a 99-1 record for the Hawkeyes. TC Dantzler (cousin of Steve, Joe, and TJ Williams) - one-time HS state finalist, 4x D1 NQ for Northern Illinois U., five-time World team rep and 2008 Olympian in Greco-Roman. Steve Marianetti - one-time HS state finalist, in college at University of Illinois, Steve went NQ, 4, 5, 1, stopping Lincoln McIlravy from becoming the second 4x NC in D1 history, then he was the 1998 World team rep at 76 kilos. Not bad for a kid who was a preferred walk-on and didn't receive wrestling scholarship money until his RS sophomore season. He turned into an pretty darn good coach, too. Some other decent kids: Joe Rau, Sean Bormet, Mark Massery, Jimmy Kennedy, Tommy Erikson, Mike Mena, Scott and Mark Trizzino, Eric Tannenbaum...
  13. I'm with you. I sincerely appreciate what the young man is doing, but the delivery is not my cup of tea.
  14. Yep, that's the one! Ryan O'Neill's kid looks all of 16, while the he guy he wrestled looks like a 39-year-old plumber from that era.
  15. Hadley's Rebellion, is somewhere between Vision Quest and Beyond The Mat, preceding Vision Quest by a year or two in filming, but wasnt released until 1987. You can tell by the rules surrounding the wrestling sequences. It features some folks who later gained notoriety in Hollywood. I found the whole thing through a Google search, but it's on a Russian site. I have it somewhere on VHS, but I'm not looking for it or paying to digitize it.
  16. Choke on this one for a bit. If nothing else, it stars Lorenzo Lamas and "Flounder" from Animal House.
  17. Written by, produced by, and starring a bunch of former D1 wrestlers. Partly filmed on the campus of my alma mater (and Gantry), Northern Illinois University.
  18. Medicine Man for the win... again!
  19. No way! That fantasy film is the the fictionalized version of the 2016 documentary, "The 24-Hour War". The latter is far superior story about those events, featuring the people who were involved in those historic events. Also, how about the following?: "Win Win" "Reversal" "Karate Kid" (original) "Cobra Kai" (YouTube follow-up to the original "Karate Kid") "Breaking Away" (cycling) "Wrestle" (streaming on some platform; there'sa thread here about it) Amazon has a documentary about Lee Kemp. "The Sandlot" "Bull Durham" The Netflix series "Losers" - REALLY good! ESPN "30 for 30" shows are usually good.
  20. I'm not a very big at all of this channel, but I admit I fell for the clickbait. Does anyone else know more or have anything to add about this story? I watched the video, then thought, "huh..." and here we are.
  21. I saw the film back in the fall and I echo most of what is stated here: nice film, the level of wrestling left a lot to be desired, the coach was a throwback to an era that we all thought was gone, and the film maker could have made qualifying a little less confusing to the viewer. All in all, good human interest stories with wrestling as the vehicle.
  22. If I might ask, how old are you? It's a serious question.
