  1. Centenary. Pretty much home. Not positive of home town (not Bethlehem) but father was from Basking Ridge NJ. I see a post somewhere saying Hackettstown (also where Centenary is).
  2. Az, Ia, In (Sort of- no team score), Mi, Mn, Oh, Ok, Pa These are the only states that did
  3. Did GD do a Who's your daddy there?
  4. You just don't get it. I help with the broadcasts and go to a lot of practices. That's it. I don't have any official role. You're saying they as if I'm part of that. The fact that I disregard your opinions has nothing to do with the actual they here.
  5. I just got a call from some of the higher ups at the U realizing that you had an opinion. They are now about to have a long conversation with you as to how to improve everything since you are obviously the end-all be-all of what Lehigh does. The school will send you a formal apology for not utilizing you much earlier.
  6. Your opinion there is irrelevant but I looked at the video above it which was a highlight. I believe one of the managers did the filming/streaming. And given this, there was an older team decision from several years ago not to stream but as I suggested earlier in this thread they will revisit the decision. I guess they already have.
  7. What difference does it make now? You can see that it wasn't taken from the scorer's table or the broadcast booth. It looks like it was from the far right corner from my perspective. In fact in just playing the first few seconds you can also see it is more of a highlight video. So it wasn't a video done rogue.
  8. Here I disagree. Alumni donations ARE generated by the athletes as much as media money. Or at least because of them. The alumni are donating to wrestling (name your sport) specific funds to benefit the athletes. It might not be as clear as seeing the athletes on film but it's the reason for it. Alums do also like to see their names on buildings but schools are supposed to be about the kids attending so any money is for their benefit.
  9. Some of Flo money does go directly to the institution. I'm more familiar with the tournament running operations where this happens. I wasn't sure where the money "Flowed" in this situation but my point to 1032004 was the indirect nature of your statement rather than the more direct one he thought. I guess you're suggesting that it's double indirect. I don't see anywhere in the merger article from a couple years ago how the money went to the school but it makes sense to go the way you said since I think it would have required the league and schools to renegotiate.
  10. He's equating Flo's payout to the school to an alumni donation that ends up going to the same purpose. It's not that Flo's payout was earmarked for Nickal- or anyone in particular- but that it's money that can be used to offset other wrestling related costs.
  11. I saw that when I got home. Apparently, someone just did it on their own. During the broadcast there was a non-td call (non call, I guess) near the score table. I said I'd liked to have had a review. Steve reminded me we weren't set up. So, I don't think he knew either. My understanding is that the decision of streaming will be revisited.
  12. Unless you can show me something in the University/NCAA guidelines (or whatever) that says that Alumni gifts are NOT part of income and that they are discounted in the equation it is your opinion not to count it. This IS money that is brought into the U as a result of running the sport so, of course it's part of the equation. Because if they had to treat the situation by forgetting they got the money they'd likely drop the sport. I didn't say that it wasn't a reasonable/valid way to look at things but no matter what you say, it is still an opinion as to how to look at the profit situation. It is revenue to the U no matter what you think. Apparently, ND looked at it the way you suggest when they took the major gift to wrestling and then convinced the widow to let it become part of the general athletic fund and dropped the sport (92?). They were looking at NCAA violations on the coaches but they redirected money in wrestling specific to the general fund instead of firing the coaches.
  13. That's your opinion. The money spent on much of those things is paid for by the gifts. For example, Ira Lubert pad $x million to pay Cael and build the Lorenzo room. Are you saying that only the expenses here count and therefore PSU is that much in the red since as you say that gift doesn't factor in? Obviously, PSU wouldn't have spent that much without the gift.
  14. Depends on your definition. A lot is alumni funded but there's still money spent and money brought in. If you count the alumni money as money spent it's probably a deficit.
  15. Yes, but I guess there were a few. (Maybe not with That's it)
  16. ?? He certed at 133. And he'll probably keep growing.
  17. What posts show that and what schools are doing that?
  18. That just went up, I guess. Now I have to get back from Frisbee a few minutes earlier!
  19. You need to grow up. And that's also volleyballs house so no idea what you're trying to cry about.
  20. What's the motivation for the Athletic department to withhold the info in favor of a paid source when none of that pay goes to the athletic department? You guys love to complain about nothing substantial outside of entitlement issues. These are basically almost meaningless matches but part of a tradition dating back to when they did hold some meaning. I suspect the Athletic department would just as soon scrub the operation. Yes, a small amount of tickets that probably about pays for setup and breakdown and costs Volleyball a practice. Cornell doesn't show evidence of wrestle-offs, neither does PSU nor Okla St (other than some mention of matches after the fact). U Penn does show them on their schedule but I don't see anything about broadcast. Ohio State does stream on BTN+/Flo. That's the only one I could find on BTN+. Iowa holds them in the room. Looks like someone filmed.

  22. Who said it was farmed out? DRD got the info and published it. He charges for it and hence Cary stood by that not wanting to do anything to compromise what DRD does. He never said the SID withheld info. If any of you had gotten the info you could have published here. Wanting to video stream is a different issue. I'm torn on the subject. Most of the wrestlers are filmed somewhere and can be seen. But not many schools have public wrestle-offs or demos or whatever you want to call it and I haven't seen them stream their practices (which is essentially what this is) so why add to the convenience factor for opponents?
  23. They haven't completely decided yet but we might do audio only. They'll probably decide today.
  24. A two count for what? Nickal isn't on his back in any of the pictures.
