    Manville is still ROTC which means he will be active duty upon graduation from PSU, so it’s not quite the same. Pretty sure that WCAP requires either five years previous active duty or current active duty, but I’m not 100% certain anymore.

    I thought he was in some program like that prior to PSU.

    This preview says that Dagestan has produced 16 gold medalists in freestyle wrestling. I don't know where that number comes from since Dagestan is not a nation and some Dagestanis wrestle for countries other than Russia.

    But it made me wonder how would Pennsylvania stack up against Afghanistan? How many golds has PA produced?


    Afghanistan? They've had 2 bronzes in Tae Kwondo and nothing else.


    I'm aware of Weaver and Angle.

    I have to agree and I am a state of Michigan guy, even when they wrestle for UofM. 

    1.) I have no issue with the non fall call. Nearly every time a cradle is locked up the call takes some time since it is often hard to find an angle to verify both shoulders are flat. This is especially so since the position came from defending a single leg and the ref wasn’t going to immediately be in position to see and call the fall. 

    2.). Churella wrestled super defensively and Hendricks was getting to his legs at will. I can’t blame the ref for getting caught up in that and being quite liberal with the takedown calls. Still, I would say 1 or 2 of those probably should have been called fleeing the mat instead of a takedown. 

    And watch the assistant ref on at least one of them. Kessel looked for help and didn't get any.

    Dake actually wrestled in 5 weight classes during the course of his college career. His senior year he bumped up(true definition of bump up) to 174 (while weighing in at 165)for the Lehigh dual where he whooped (iirc) Nate Brown. How many guys can say they competed atleast once in 50% of the weight classes?

    Not many- Lehigh-

    Mike Frick wrestled 118, 126, 134, 142, 150, 158.

    John Driscoll-  157, 167, 177, Unl, 147 (yes, the 147 came right after wrestling 6 bouts at Unl through December)

    Agree.  Probably the worst hose job in NCAA finals history.  The second of the two third period takedowns was suspect; the first one was simply a horrible call.  I think if they would have had replay like they do today and had Michigan coaches thrown in the brick, Churella would have ended up with another backpoint and Hendricks with one less takedown, making the final score 10 - 7 Churella.  (I assume replay wouldn't have overruled the no pin call at the end of the second period, but replay might have shown that the match should have never gone to a third period in the first place.)

    You can't review a fall. But the tds, sure!

    I don-t think Taylor gave up any offensive points in his two undefeated years. Chris that is, I suspect a lot of the giants had seasons with no offensive points, (maybe Wojo scored in the NCAA finals)

    He did. It's on PSUs website. He gave up 2 TD each year in dual meets.

    Did you actually read his post? He said Chris Taylor not David.

    In my professional experience, consultants often (but not always) are brought in when the business has already made its decision and wants a 2nd opinion or an "independent" party to point the finger at. It's possible ODU's decision was made before the consultant was ever hired.

    And it's possible this answers LU Alum's question as in they figured they'd get this answer from him so they hired him.

    We all know that most of the roster is not on full rides. The out of state tuition is often two or three times the in state rate. Recruiting out of state guys helps the university financially.

    Only if they pay tuition. Va has the best southern HS wrestling so they can get in-state quality kids. A lot of what I had seen was Florida and Georgia and Alabama that might not have had any local starters. 

    A quick look at the roster showed a number of Va kids but maybe a couple starters. A lot of Ill and Fla. It's more likely that the starters were on scholarship so they weren't helping the school financially as much. Anyone have any idea of the actual breakdown?
