  1. Very limited though. So far a couple of pickup games is all. I used to be able to play as often as 4-5 times a week here in the Lehigh Valley if my knees held up. But the local leagues have shut down for the year other than to encourage playing disc golf for a while. Going to try again this afternoon.
  2. This is more where I was going with the soccer analogy to wrestling. That is interesting though about some places not counting a wrestling match as criteria to be a contact.
  3. Again, there's no comparison between the sports in this regard. Covid is mainly passed by breathing out and generally seems to require prolonged close contact. I haven't heard anyone say you get it the instant you break the 6 foot barrier. I have played Ultimate (frisbee) for decades and it is likely more covid dangerous than soccer. It's played mostly man-to-man so when running you run alongside your opponent. If you have the disc and are throwing your defender marks you by standing right in front of you face to face for up to around 10 seconds. The few times we've played these last few months we wear masks (not easy but...) and generally play more relaxed defense. And I wouldn't put Ultimate in the same category here as wrestling where you might be face to face for minutes without a mask.
  4. The point is not for any length of time. I don't understand your analogy. The point of wrestling is to be in touch most of the time with one or both sets of breathing apparatus facing the other guy.
  5. Seriously? Soccer is mostly zone defense. They do approach each other but very little face-to-face. More of that in basketball.
  6. Not taking sides here on this but this is an interesting article by Christine Brennan. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/brennan/2020/09/16/big-ten-football-decision-marks-darkest-day/5793238002/?fbclid=IwAR3J08AmoCGEgUwHM3AMxGSAoDXqy77170cDstMmNEAXG0eSrV14bzXaOZc
  7. Yup, Little Rock is closer to the Gulf than the pacific.
  8. Did you read what he said? Also, if you are referencing my post stating that two did take, that meant I am aware of statements saying that two did take it not anything about the third. He might have he might not have.
  9. The way this year is going it might be time for the Rapture!
  10. I think 2 had been taking creatine. However, not necessarily in the days immediately leading to their deaths. My thoughts were that they might have been taking ephedrine (or some related substance). For those that might have noticed creatinin being mentioned, that's not necessarily due to taking creatine. Creatinin is manufactured by the body during times where the body is undergoing situations of excessive heat (I think this is how it was described- don't quote me). This is why I had been saying it wasn't just the weighin rules (although those days they were pretty stupid) nor creatine. Add all this together with other supplements and you have a perfect storm.
  11. Potential location is set. Deciding on if it will work out.
  12. Again, nothing for a hundred years before, nothing in twenty years since. They lost massive amounts for a long time before and some after. A little less after maybe. Millions of weigh-ins. No deaths. It's not all about weight cutting by itself. And I didn't say it was just the creatine.
  13. I have nothing definitive but I think creatine was designed more for football use to gain weight. I also think there might have been some other additives in the earlier versions or possibly the kids might have been taking dietary supplements that could have caused further problems. One is trying to increase and the other decrease. This added to the stupid weighin rules of the time wasn't a good mix. No deaths for a hundred or so years before and none for 20-some after. 3 within a few months? Something weird going on that year.
  14. Except football is probably the main reason Title IX was needed.
  15. They have 4 coaches. There is such a thing as an undergraduate student assistant but they have to have eligibility remaining.
  16. I didn't notice any freshmen. Maybe they're just working on things although why they would put in last year's data is weird.
  17. Larry Holmes wrestled. Not sure if as long as HS but Easton has a rec program known as The Saints that he participated in. Other Holmes wrestled in HS. Ryan Holmes is a nephew and he wrestled for Wilson.
  18. Bo knows wrestling. Or were you just saying if he started earlier?
  19. To me even more (or less) than that. There was a statement muddying whether there even was a PSU athlete involved.
