  1. Morningstar has to go, the Brands Bros had tons of accomplishments at the college and international level. Ryan Mornigstar was one of the most boring college wrestlers of the last 25 years. Collar tie push, sprawl and ride an ankle on top. Nothing else, zero angles, creativity or offense from anywhere. The sport now is about offense and scoring, something he never did. I do like the brands bros and they should stay but they need an asst. coach who didn't wrestle like them, someone who was funky and won because of tech. and scrambles, not just cardio and toughness. Jason Welsh comes to mind.
  2. Franklin Regional graduated 10 wrestlers last year and with Lee and Solomon being out most of this year, they aren't very good. Belle Vernon is the best public school in PA this year. Also, not sure how you're considering Bergan Catholic public?
  3. Nick Farro is a NJ state finalist and Beast runner up at 132. He has the biggest beef without a seed. Unless I'm missing someone else.
  4. Seeds are out on the Powerade wrestling website. Spencer Lee isn't listed, so LBJ I hope you're right. His teammate Gus Solomon also isn't listed. #1 at 182 Nick Reenan is not wrestling either. A few other nationally ranked wrestlers aren't competing, Injuries are a part of this sport. That's why backups and depth are important at the high school and college level.
  5. If Lee couldn't make it back, Teasdale would fill in just fine as he majored Glory last year in the Powerade final.
  6. After Ironman and Beast the 3rd toughest tournament on the December schedule is up now. What a loaded field with Wyoming Seminary coming in as the #1 team in the land, as they should win the team title without much struggle. Maybe Bergan Catholic will give them the best run, that depends on Shane Griffin if he's healthy, Also Belle Vernon will be in the hunt. However, their are plenty of individual weights that will bring lots of interest on a national level. 126 with Soriano, MCcoy and Agaisse. 138 with Pletcher, Phillipi, griffith and Oster. 145 Has Verkleeren, Coy,Buddock and Glasgow. 152 maybe with the 5th match between Manville and Hidlay, Monico and Timmons will be in the hunt. at 182 is the deepest field for sure, with Ironman champ Reenan, Beast champ Gentile, then AA state champ Bulsak, Hoffman, Beast placer McCracken, Bolwen, Woodley, Shaffer, 2x Beast placer Colello, 2x Beast placer Brandon Kui. wow top 20 matches in the round of 16.
  7. Sorry, I got Wyoming Seminary confused with Malvern Prep.
  8. From the #1 Ironman onto the #2 Beast, will Wyoming Seminary win? Can Blair take back the #1 spot? One thing is for sure, the Beast of the east has a greater stage as its not wrestled in a tiny gym. The Bob Carpenter Arena will be packed full of studs and spectators. Seeds will be released Thursday.
  9. Does anyone else think the FLOarena brackets are hard to follow? All the matches are listed as individual matches, its hard to follow the rounds and from the championship and consi rounds. Sometimes in trying something new, just makes it more difficult to follow. I like track wrestling, or escape sports, when dealing just with bracket results. Just old school brackets.
  10. Wrestling report has one of the best college boards online. Every team, every conference D1,D2,D3 info, also box scores of every D1 dual meet. Solid forum for sure.
  11. Spencer Lee is only 5 feet tall and walks around in the mid 120's, he was tiny at 120, He won't even be huge at 110. He wrestled flat weight all year because Devin Brown was at 113 and didn't want to push Devin down to 106 and Devin was too small vs the legit 120 pounders (Brown lost to Hartman state 7th at 120 in the dual). So yes, Lee has competed all year wrestling flat weight, which makes his acomplishments all the more impressive.
  12. The Alton Era is over, Andrew Can't wrestle harder than 1 minute, Dylan placed 3rd at NCAA's but that was 2 injuries ago and it's 3 years later, not the same wrestler now. Also, I can't see Dylan beating Nolf at 157 anyway and no way Andrew beats Zain at 149. 125- Mega 133- Gulibon/ Conaway 141- Moss 149- Zain/ Beitz 157- Nolf/ Frey 165- Hammond/Law 174- Nickel/Rasheed 184- McCutch/ Phipps 197- Macintosh Hwt- Nevills
  13. Josh Koskeck and Gregor Gillespi both were NCAA champs and neither were anything close to being blue chip recruits out of high school. Koscheck was a 4x AA and GG I think AA 3xs. Also, Jarred KIng was #1 at 160 coming out of high school, went to Oklahoma and never AA (shoulder issues) but transfered to Edinboro and Was a NCAA champ as a junior and placed 3rd as a senior. As for Mitchell Port and AJ Schopp they were both 1x PA state champs. AJ won 135 AA his senior year, the AAA state champ that year was Josh Deziwa. Deziwa was ranked #1 in the country and Schopp was 7th. Who had the better career? Deziwa at Iowa or Schopp at Edinboro?
  14. Now that the season is over will Michigan St. finally start over? I think they lead the way in needing a new head coach. What program would be second?
  15. How about Josh Deziwa? He was the best 135 pounder in the country and only made NCAA's once going 1-2. Maybe he should have gone to Lock Haven.
