  1. That shocked me as he won a year ago over the same wrestler by tech fall.
  2. Certainly understand and don't disagree. But I love that in wrestling, backups and redshirts can go to open tournaments and compete instead of being a practice dummy for the starters. But then I guess guys can go unattached to open tournaments if there are any. I'm doubtful there will be many if at all.
  3. So no non-conference matches? Guess it's like football. No open tournaments this year I guess.
  4. All very true. One more advantage is that ASU gives out a pretty decent amount of $ for good students. So wrestlers with a high GPA can get a lot of aid (and I am talking grants and not loans so they don't end up with a ton of debt). Some examples, an instate student with a 30 GPA pays no tuition (I have 2 kids at ASU and this is quite nice, son got this, daughter got more). A friend of my daughters is from northern Cal, would have had to pay list price instate at UCLA (which is pricey) as well as Cal-Davis but given a large discount at ASU on out of state tuition making that a much cheaper option. Son's GF is from Oregon, $0 from UO/OSU but big discount at ASU. Daughter knew a gymnast at ASU, no athletic $ but very smart kid and school mostly paid for.
  5. Nebraska JR Christian Miller was killed Thursday morning in a car accident. He was a backup at 141 and started a handful of matches at 133 and 141 over the past couple seasons. Andy https://huskers.com/news/2020/11/5/nebraska-mourns-the-passing-of-christian-miller.aspx

    By far my favorite. I worked for Atria and know it inside and out. Was pre-IPO there. Did well. Off topic Atria merged with Pure Software headed by Reed Hastings, who started Netflix a few years later. Knew him but did not like him well enough to keep in touch. Screwed the pooch on that decision. :-)

    I hate GIT. Use it way too much. Still better than SVN.
  9. Yeah the schools in question were not Ivy (though close), Washington U in STL and Tulane. Kids were told in no uncertain terms that aid they would get as a FR woul dbe less if they transfer in.
  10. I stand corrected on the Ivies. From my experience with 2 kids in college aid changed if someone transferred in.
  11. Because a portion comes as grants (which you don;t pay back) and the rest loans, which you do. So, yes if a wrestler transfers to Princeton the % of aid that is loans will likely go up. That is hard $ out of the pocket.
  12. Except that the aid one gets as a transfer is typically significantly lower than you get as an incoming FR. For someone like Woods that may not matter.
  13. Yes Woods wants to transfer and continue. I expect Griffith would as well. But I thought the post was about the other members of the team
  14. As to transfers, leaving Stanford is a hard task if you are concerned about academics. They tend to be pretty generous with the aid packages to students based on need. If you transfer you give that up and have to hope for something similar or wrestling money. Even a RS SO this year is 3 years into the program, you might want to take the $ and get a degree and try as a graduate transfer.
  15. Possibly and Iowa as well. Nebraska many tens of millions off of FB, maybe 5M on Basketball and 250K on W volleyball. Every other sport was a net loss.
