  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I stand corrected on the Ivies. From my experience with 2 kids in college aid changed if someone transferred in.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. And more importantly, any recruits that a team can steal ?
  14. Nebraska expects a $100M hit to the AD budget if games are not played. While I do not htink the NU wrestling team is in jeopardy, that kind of a loss for any school is going to have serious repercussions.
  15. Thanks, I assume you have some inside information. Appreciate the update. I really hope there is a season.
  16. I'll be surprised if Thomasen beats Lovett at 133. I am also speculating that Robb moves to 165 and 157 is either Wilson (KS) or Hardy (UT) . Unfortunately Nebraska does not have a goto pipeline state for recruits.
  17. That is a good point. I suspect Albright takes top and has a solid shot at riding out. Back pre 285# limit, very large heavies would choose top.
  18. Pure speculation (but I remember thinking this when I saw the match). Thacker was able to tire out the other HWT by putting his full weight during the ride out. Starting the 3rd period the NU HWT was visably tired. That is why I think had the coin toss gone the other way certainly could have seen a different result.
  19. I remember the match. Won at the coin toss. No takedown. Thacker on top and tired out the Nebraska HWT (Gary Albright). Easy escape for Thacker in the 3rd period. IIRC, Thacker was 450 pounds, Albright 350.
  20. I still cannot believe Nebraska only finished 4th, but when you have only 3 AAs (2 champs and a number 2) that is what happens. And 61 points doesn't get you 4th many years.
  21. Considering that Harvard (and other schools) have stated that next semester (or even next year) will be on line, I am not really surprised.
  22. That's what I thought but the article said late 70s. I wrestled DIII 79-82 and swear we ran into them in tournaments Thanks.
  23. When did they drop wrestling ? I remember being at DIII tournaments with them in the early 80s. They had some talent.
  24. Got it. Was wondering why you didn't finish 197.
