  1. Two former 190lbers., Lou Banach and Howard Harris over Bruce Baumgardner, 1980-81. BY Fall
  3. Not in the forseeable future, meaning the next 3 years. However sooner, if the tOSU and PSU airplanes collide in mid-flight on the way to BIGS.
  4. My recollection was Martucci/Mantella, 190 lbs., 1981 at Princeton. One fan yelled " Come on, do something!!" Everyone else had their alarm clock set to 8 minutes.
  5. I can understand why "some" people would think that, Gimp; they really wanted Mark to get OW. I'd compare it to a conspiracy theory that has no merit. I talked with Bud afterwards and he said with tears in his eyes "I'm Gonna Beat Him" (exact words) presumably at some future date (Olympic trial?). He was really upset that he got beat that way, but it was his style to wait til the end to pour it on. Mark said he was waiting for it. Palmer went on to the ministry, more his speed compared to getting revenge.
  6. Socialism = government runs the show. Capitalism = private sector runs it. Reality = Both are running it; capitalism can't succeed w/o government help, i.e., tax-breaks, writeoffs, grants, subsidies, and favorable legislation of all sorts (See New Deal). The big and most important difference is capitalism's respect for individuality and initiative.
  7. And children will shout at each other, " You're a big, dummy" or "You're a silly cupcake." Then you grow "up" and it's communist, queer, idiot, socialist; all for a few seconds of getting-even-gratification and gotcha.
  8. Princeton has none? Brad Glass is rolling in his grave!
  9. You dotn hvae to eb a godo spellre to gte an idae accrsso but it sure helps.
  10. 2 key words to our problems
  11. Sport, violent or not, will remain in this country as a competitive extension of the USA's history of continuous world warring, or its preparation, declared or not. Kill and maim are ok when legal. Morality is a much higher standard that deals w/potential. Loss of life/ brain power is loss of potential. Moral and ethical are the top line; legal is the (immoral) bottom line. So much that's immoral is ok legally. We're a bottom line society, obviously. And the flip side is money, more precisely, no guaranteed income; at least enough to prevent the need for a quick buck by having to sticking your neck out in so many different ways. The organizers don't fight, their suckers do. Francis McDormandt's last line in Fargo, "...and for what, a little money."
  13. Ahhthe good ol days when men covered their ankles and left a little more to the imagination.
  14. Beauty is in the ear of the beholder
  15. If the bottom wrestler isn't getting out how is he good at wrestling? Some aspects of FS are ok, not all. The idea is to send a message that the pin/tilt is the goal and always has been, not riding alone or defensiveness on bottom.
  16. 1. Riding time is obsolete except for rodeo. It doesn't promote pinning, just fake halfs/stalling. You pin-tilt cuz u knowhow. Riding is necessarily part of the real pinner's style, not a coincidence. The non-pinner is stalling and wasting everyone's time. Control is good up to a point then it gets boring. Allow the ride, not the point, and only if a tilt/pinning attempt is on the horizon. Otherwise, just hanging on is either a stall call or stand 'em up. I.e., Take away the incentive NOT to pin! 2. A 3 point TD makes sense if it promotes more TDs similar to a 4 point NF IF it produces mores NFs; I see no proof though. Again, it's a function of knowhow, not point value. Anyway we won't know if a 3 pt TD will work as planned since it isn't being tried. And If the "easy" major/techfall is a problem, just bump them up to 10 and 20pts margin.
  17. According to Cinnabon this is really asking who is the best 157 from 1999 to present. You asked initially "..Why would that make "uh, Zalesky?" a wrong response?" I answered.......... That's why that would make "uh, Zalesky?" a wrong response. ´╗┐So why did you ask the question when he doesn't fit the criteria. I also included Natvig from the 60 's at 147lbs.
  18. I don't think about it either. It's just one of those things. It's called coincidence, like a head butt or finger in the eye. Actually, aside from the embarrasment/ humiliation, the oil change is the least dangerous situation. But if it's the first thing you think about.... you have issues.
  19. Only in the process of the legal application of a hold where as a side effect the testicles may be momentarily involved, as with a switch, single leg lift, cross body ride, crotch lift. I wouldn't say ' make sure you bust his nuts when you do this move.' Otherwise I'd expect to be reported to the administration.
  20. Correct. The former is painful and the latter is a quite a surprise!
