    He was speaking in code. And the G was silent. Probably why you missed it.

    I for one expect him to mention every single individual wrestler that lost their chances to compete at NCAA's last year, their accolades, their favorite color, and a brief synopsis of their wrestling career from youth through college in order to be satisfied that he is respecting our sport!

    There were 11 other distinct winter and spring championships which he did not mention directly.  You're trying to make something out of nothing.

    Does he make extra dough if he finds TJ Hill's non-golds in there, too?

    Tofurky got a reaction from OBXWrestler in Off Topic: Lake Lure, NC   
    Went to Swananoa/Asheville three years ago this weekend for a pal's wedding, and that area changed my life for the better. I visited Chimney Rock and Lake Lure while in town, and immediately knew that was the spot for me. (I understand the waterfall scene in "Last of The Mohicans" was filmed at Chimney Rock, and I understand why) As others have said, it's a great place, and sitting at the feet of those mountains... maaaaaannnnnnn... absolutely stunning.
    For me, I've lived almost my entire life in and within an hour of Chicago. We have nothing like that around here. If it weren't 10-plus hours from me one way, I'd be back there more often.

    Well, the point I’m getting at is that he can’t “quit” the Army. He has a contract, and his contract will be terminated by the Army and he will most likely receive a General or Other Than Honorable discharge.

    That's what I was wondering. If so, man, he's in more trouble than just a 4 year suspension.
    UCMJ and at best a general discharge, but probably an OTH.

    Good for Pat and good luck to him.
    He's a less intelligent Chael Sonnen, in that he is his own hype machine, just not as savvy. If he starts off with a pretty good record, on top of having been an NJCAA Champ, a D1 All-American, and a World Team Member, he could make a name for himself somewhat quickly.
    While I was never a fan of his mouth, he was a much better wrestler than most people here give him credit for being.

    I don't think it will work as well given his level in MMA, sense the culture is way more saturated with that sort of thing. Remember when Johnny Hendricks went from public enemy #1 (and I am not being ironic I hated him too), to "happy beard guy"? 
    He's gonna have to make some serious strides and survive in a training environment without being kicked out for longer than he ever has before he can  be relevant enough trash talk his way into a fight he doesn't deserve.

    Maybe, but that world still has room for second rate versions of that shtick. People love watching cocky people lose. Look at how Pat, and his dad are treated here. MMA is no different.

    Honestly I am hoping he fights like Hendo did before he realized all he had left was the world ender known as the H-Bomb. Give him the mouth of Sonnen and BLAMMO. You have him kissing his right fist and saying he is bringing that 'Big D Bomb' to town.
    The thought of hearing Blue Dragons brag about the Big D Bomb his son is blasting folks with already annoys the $HlT out of me.

    I don't even see him rising TO Bellator name. Honestly.  Pico got signed as a phenom and forgot his roots.  Lost 3 easily winnable matches because of it and likely lost a few years of his combat abilities for getting KOd.  I see Downey earning a contract, but not having success in Bellator.  He is TST(thick solid and tight) so does he make that drop to 185?  Or does he go up to 205, where he won't have a power advantage?

    All this said, I see him forgetting his roots and trying to throw with too many people.  I also don't see him giving proper respects to BJJ type grapplers and getting something torn off or put to sleep.  He has the grit and power to succeed, I just don't trust his fight IQ until I see it.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that JW is intimately involved with Blue Chip Wrestling's operations, which is located roughly where JW grew up.

    I'd argue that rugby is already bigger globally.
    I'm 45 now, I played rugby competitively for more than a decade, and I even play the two hand touch variety at least once a week, as well as help my oldest's team when times are "normal". That said, I don't see the U.S. embracing rugby the way it has football in my lifetime. U.S. fans love and promote the violence the game promotes. The NFL, college football, and youth football are institutionalized parts of American culture that will last for another generation beyond me, I suspect, though I wish otherwise.

    BTW-I'm not sure if this was right after he graduated or maybe his senior year but he was at the WIlkes Open just watching. It was while I was running NCAAs but before I ran the Wilkes. I was just spectating. I don't know if he knew who I was but we were both standing near the brackets. He motioned me over and asked how the consolations worked. (Sheesh!).  I looked at him and said something like - What the F#$% do you care? First, you have to lose.
    He didn't hurt me!

    Brutally rough.  Especially when they are super good human beings too.   Another tough thing to watch is when you have a kid with solid credentials come in and wind up 3rd or 4th in the depth chart.
