  1. On the other hand, the concussions might be related to his style. Gayle Sayers was among the most exciting runners ever but his wild style of running led to his knee injuries.
  2. I'll have to repost this with an update for Suriano Sauriano Soriano Suriano
  3. Please read all of your post. You said "might" be sooners as if the first part was assuming it wasn't as where you said Plenty of Oklahoma wrestlers better. There couldn't have been plenty of better Sooners therefore you have moved your own goalposts here. And my once again part made no assumptions about what group you meant because I have to explain to people quite often how these lists work. Strictly by the numbers of NCAA/state placements and totaling team scores for them. I wasn't really referring to you too directly with it other than using some of your words. I was simply saying once again someone doesn't get the point.
  4. I responded the way I did because you clearly either DIDN'T see it as Sooners and thought it was the HS state of or didn't understand how the NJ Wrestling Best of posts work. Plus it was kind of silly to suggest I didn't know anything about wrestling history since knowledge of history was totally irrelevant to the original post in the thread other than knowing who placed what.
  5. I won't claim to be a top ten historian but I've had friendships and working relationships with several who are. Dellinger, sayenga, Hammond probably top the list. Bryant and diehl are pretty close. A little rubbed off on me. I do see a mistake in saying cowboys that I didn't notice at first. To me it was pretty obvious we were talking sooners the whole time given the names involved.
  6. And once again, someone doesn't understand how this works. It's strictly objective. All by the numbers. Team points for placement. No adjustments, no opinions. If you don't like it, make your own list.
  7. If you have seen One More Shot and still think it's the worst it must be pretty bad.
  8. You guys usually complain about the announcing
  9. I just remembered that he wrestled 190 his freshman year at PSU.
  10. Probably at around 190 though if that matters.
  11. Was he back in the center? Stupid to look away if he was. If you want clarity go off somewhere. Sounds a bit like a kid complaining I wasn't ready.
  12. Huh? No idea what point you are either trying to make or ask now. So I guess I'll type slower- The Ivy League- is a L-E-A-G-U-E. They set their own rules. They said no winter sports. Lehigh is NOT in the Ivy League. They are in the Patriot League but not for wrestling. The EIWA minus Ivies and F&M so far are wrestling. Apparently Lehigh has decided to wrestle albeit without fans.
  13. Jake does. Jimmy isn't sure. Brandon looks pissed.
  14. Not exactly but the IVY League is a league. With rules and their own standards. Lehigh isn't in it.
  15. Because the Ivies are actually in the Ivy League and Lehigh isn't.
  16. It probably depends who you ask. Some say there was pressure from the D1 coaches to get rid of them so as not to lose to them. What I got directly from the NCAA rep was that there weren't other sports that gave two bites to the apple.
  17. OK- messes up the first day. Are you really trying to make a major difference between those two terms? And you have no idea what you're talking about for the reason of the 33rd. The basketball games (65th) started in 1999 and First 4 in about 2011. Wrestling was at 36 for some time through until late 80s until they eliminated D2 finalists and D3 champs from entering D1. They phased down late 80s and early 90s grandfathering in kids that had qualified while they were allowed in like Haselrig. Then it got to 33. For the 90s into the 00s it averaged 33. Then in 2009, IIRC, they changed to exactly 33 each weight.
  18. And this would be the time to remind people NOT to reduce participation numbers simply because some people have mathematical OCD. How does it ruin the first day? Maybe ten bouts get put slightly out of sequence- and with 30 minute wait time could be only a few. Not sure how many were delayed the couple years back when the 30 minute rule was implemented.
  19. Alex Shaffer hunterdon central. Won states as a sophomore I believe. 119. Was on team nj. Another team nj kid, Dante porazzo depaul was the masked opponent.
