  1. @MedicineMan, the opportunity for you to work your magic with the above statement is RIPE!
  2. Maybe I am wrong, but I thought the cocaine charges were dropped. Does anyone know of this is true or not?
  3. How long until the guy from the college board comes here suggesting that there's no reason an alternative tournament cant take place, and all that needs to happen is that money is raised?
  4. Hey, man, the state wants you to not only stay calm, but keep making future tax payers, too.
  5. They'd scare off all the recruits with the amount of bleeding that takes place.
  6. Wasn't Donny promised the reigns at Wisconsin, and then the Barrys pulled a fast one at the last minute? That said, I would think that Goodale has quite a few years left, as he is only 47- or 48-years-old. I think Donny may have missed a really great opportunity at Maryland. I'm not sure if he went for the gig, but being a B10 school less than an hour from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, just north of Virginia, and with recruiting ties to the Midwest, that might have been his best shot. To the rest, I have no idea.
  7. As you and I both know, you are way more up on this stuff than I am. I defer to you, sir. Gracias!
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Leno putting Robin Williams on his back. That was great.
  11. 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?
  12. 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?

    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.
  14. Mike Zadick? How long does Donny Pritzlaff stay an assistant coach? Jon Reader? Scott Moore?
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. 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...
  19. I'm with you. I sincerely appreciate what the young man is doing, but the delivery is not my cup of tea.
  20. 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.
