    I'd love to move From Michigan to NC or SC. No more snow storm filled spring breaks!

    You are so right, his technique is terrible. Finally he will go someplace and learn how to wrestle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOvfKr0J5d4

    D1 Women's Wrestling

    Women's wrestling at the high school and college level continues to grow. Eventually I think it will grow to the division 1 level, but focusing time and resources to push it to the division 1 level would be unwise. The continue promotion and growth of women's wrestling as a whole will benefit men's wrestling and could potentially protect future men's programs from being cut due to title 9 compliance issues. By sharing resources, men's and women's programs tie their fate to each other. Cutting men's wrestling no longer makes as much sense. I found women's wrestling enjoyable to watch, but agree that at some weights the styles in general are a bit more boring than others. I feel the same about men's wrestling as well though. Heavyweight 197 and even 184 can be a bit boring (174 has had its moments in recent years). As a lightweight competitor my whole career, I also favor the lighter weight classes of both styles. I however am biased. In my high school career, I competed on teams with 8 female wrestlers (4 at one high school, 4 at another my senior year). One of them wrestled in college, became my wife and has blessed me with three boys.

    Mike Pucillo announcement

    If only Christianity worked the way some of these idiots think. Men have been loving men long before Christ walked the earth and Christ would have accepted them with open arms and loved him. The only choice Pucillo has made its to no longer hid something to the way God made him, is as natural as breathing. As a straight person doesn't second guess their attract to the opposite second because it is simply in their nature. A gay persons attraction to the same sex is also in their nature. (I just wanted to put another Christian view out there because we are often represented by overly loud and hypocritical morons.) God bless Pucillo
  5. Michigan's loss in dead. Happy for him and his family, they're great and he made a huge impact on my career as a coach and competitor. So, I"m bitter for us here in Michigan. Then again, it can't hurt too much to have a friend in New York.

    grastallis just swallowed his tongue.....

    Flashes of brilliance like this is why I picked him a few years ago to win a national title as a long shot.
  7. How would a female freestyle wrestler do in male folkstyle wrestling? Like comparing oranges and asparagus.

    EMU > Stanford > Michigan

    Actually, with a closer look, Stanford started different wrestlers at 125, 141, 157, 174, and 197. That's 5 weight classes. It looks like 3 of those weights had won against Michigan and lost against EMU with different starters including #17 ranked Evan Silver who beat #11 Conor Youtsey and didn't wrestle against Germaine of EMU. What's up with that? Weight issues? Injuries? Are they still figuring out the line up after 6 duals?

    EMU > Stanford > Michigan

    And MSU just dominated Eastern... yikes, things are turning into a mess.

    #5's go down at EMU duals

    Grajales loses to two unranked wrestlers and then beats #1 Sakaguchi 10-6. He has been inconsistent since he entered college and reminds me a lot of David Craig's career.

    Puerto Rico event?

    I'm wrong! :) So which did he beat/which weight did he wrestle? I'm guessing Soler, but we saw what happens when I make guesses.

    Sam Stoll to Iowa

    ban, I just thought I should mention you don't know that much about Heidt. Just in case you weren't told enough times.

    Puerto Rico event?

    When Franklin Gomez repped Puerto Rico in the Olympics it was mentioned that he was either the first PR wrestler to qualify for the Olympics or the first in the long time. So either Marsteller beat a really old dude or he didn't beat a Puerto Rican Olympian... or he beat Franklin Gomez.

    Medal Count: Boys vs. Girls

    The women actually fell short of their potential. Could have had 5 medals and 2 finalist. They could have won the title this year. Our greco team was young and inexperienced with a last minute change at 66kg. I told my wife we wouldn't win a medal in greco this year if Spencer didn't pull through. Our freestyle team had a few things not go our way, but we had a solid team put together. Escobedo actually wrestled really well in getting 5th. I support seeding or at the very least wrestle backs to one third place.

    Day 4......?

    Was hoping to see Ragan and Maroulis on the podium. We actual have a very good team put together for Women's Freestyle.
