    Getting in on the Buffalo Section 6 action! I could ride my bike to Canada from where I lived in Buffalo... For those that live in the state/WNY, no one would ever say Cornell is close to Canada...

    Marginally so alphabetically!

    He's also a very good Disc Golfer. Took 2nd at the US Amateur Open, and 9th at the Amateur Worlds.  He has an 18 hole disc golf course on his property and recently was visited by the #1 ranked disc golfer in the world. He has talked about going Pro several times. I'd love to see it as I am a disc golfer myself!

    Last time I talked with him about the subject - at Fargo a couple summers ago when he sent one of his kids over to me to throw a disc with my foot- he told me he hadn't played in a few years. I hope he does get back into it.

    That is my source, whom I asked directly.  He apparently agreed that the info is not for public consumption and  removed it.

    You asked Jack directly or witwhiz? That's the only place I saw it mentioned was his post. I have no idea who either of you are so how do I know that's what actually happened?

    If he flunked the skin test it goes without saying he is dq'd, but the medical personnel shouldn't be offering info of a personal and private nature.

    Again, who said he did publicly and since he didn't wrestle and the skin check was done in full view of both teams is it really that private?

    Is Jack Foley the one that diagnosed this?  If he so, he can't hold a press conference,  proclaim himself an expert and then announce the medical condition of somebody.

    Who said he had a press conference? That could have been something someone heard him say at the skin check. And Witwhiz added the credentials not Jack. And also he wasn't alone at the skin check. Our dermatologist who has a lot of the same NCAA credentials would have been there also.


    Also, from what I've heard, he wasn't cleared at Lehigh then dqed at Lehigh. He was cleared at Drexel and dqed at Lehigh. I don't think that reporter was there. I don't see any mention of the dq beyond the simple fact on the OSU site.

    I thought maybe he did as a junior or something.  I know that UWW might consider it representing the US if he competed at a tournament like Farrell or Schultz as a part of the CKWC.  

    His wikipedia article says

    Domenic Michael Abounader (born March 11, 1995) is an American-born freestyle wrestler. Domestically, Abounader competed at St. Edward High School (Lakewood, Ohio) and the University of Michigan, where he earned All-American honors in 2018 at the later.[2] Internationally, he competes for Lebanon, his father's home country. As a dual citizen, Domenic is eligible to compete for Lebanon since he never wrestled for the United States at the international level. In his first international tournament, he won a silver medal at the 2018 Asian Games, the first medalist for Lebanon in wrestling.[3]


    And we all know what Abe Lincoln said about internet posts!

    Im not buying he was ever told to cover it up.  Any health professional worth their salt is not going to tell someone to cover up a possibly contagious condition.  But IF that happened, that’s even more proof something was questionable on the skin.

    And knowing the Lehigh people involved as long as I have, it surprises me that it might be true. At the most, I could see them saying that they would examine more closely and if then found not infectious to cover it up.

  8. I didn't hear anything about a change of mind but I only heard briefly about this anyway so who knows? (And to lay all the cards out- if anyone doesn't know- I'm a Lehigh fan)

    What might have happened is that there were likely at least two people doing a check. Lehigh's trainer and the local dermatologist. I didn't see the skin check and was told that it was the trainer that made the call but I did see the doctor at the meet and doubt he came just to watch. For those that don't know - it is these two people that wrote the skin check rules for the NCAA some years ago so they aren't just a couple guys there. So one of them might have made a preliminary statement about whatever they saw and then the doctor probably made the final call. Possibly even after examining a swab under a microscope as they often do.

    As to the article statements about this- some of which I find very shallow in thinking-

    1. "Understandably in a sport with such close contact, the rule requiring skin checks makes sense for the health of the athletes. The rule of having someone from the opposing team’s camp check the skin sometimes does not (for obvious reasons)."

    This is patently absurd. If anything a cynic would expect the opposing people to be more likely to dq which would be more in keeping with the health of the wrestlers if not the ability to get on the mat. The same team's people would then be more likely to let it slide which would be against the health of the wrestlers. This also assumes a lack of ethics.

    2. The following day, Witcraft weighed in vs. Lehigh, was checked by their doctor, and was initially cleared to wrestle. They simply told him to cover up whatever his skin issue was. Presumably, it wasn’t super serious as it was not even mentioned by the Drexel physicians.

    This assumes that the first doc even saw the same thing. He might have missed a location, it might have spread or got worse overnight. This article assumes the Lehigh people were wrong and the Drexel people right. It could be the other way around or, as I said above, it could have gotten worse. The stress of wrestling and the trip can bring out whatever it was. He could have abraded it while wrestling.

    What was the timing of the disqualification vs. the order of wrestlers.  Was the order chosen by both coaches after the disqualification or before?  Does it make a difference strategically?

    Should have been after dq. Choice should be done after weighins and skin check before.

    How did Rutgers get Big 10s before the Huskers, since Nebraska was a member 3 or 4 years longer. Is there any rhyme or reason to a rotation?

    Believe it's a rhyme although don't have the time to explain the design but sure all will be fine.  ;)

    I don't know about that but there is pretty good alliteration in CoachP's post.

    Convenient that the cutoff to be eligible is you can't be 19 until after Sept. 1st to be eligible for sports.  Just a lucky break for the school he appeared at which just so happens to be an Arizona power.  No, not suspicious at all.  

    I hope you realize that there are actually kids whose birthdays are on September 2?

    For starters, the 3000 times he said he had proof of collusion. Mueller debunked that. 

    I shouldn't get into this but Mueller debunked nothing of the sort. He only said that he was going within the DOJ guidelines NOT to indict a sitting president so he didn't take a stand on the issue either way.
