  1. Retherford might win more NCAA titles than PA state titles.
  2. If he was way over, he should have known it would jeopardize being eligible for 145.
  3. Patrick wrestled in the National Prep tournament last season.
  4. I'd give the edge to Franklin Regional. Too bad it never happened.
  5. Wow! Great finish to the 138 match.
  6. Some video highlights on pennlive, including Sheehan putting Curry on his back. http://highschoolsports.pennlive.com/news/article/-4935662750591895782/recap-from-the-opening-session-of-piaa-class-aaa-wrestling-championships-video-highlights/#/0
  7. http://www.cool1017online.com/ and http://www.940wgrp.com/ should have a radio broadcast for the AA tournament, focusing on district 10 wrestlers.
  8. Is it the same guy who was doing the earlier round matches for espn?
  9. I'm not sure if mentioning the part about wrestling to the death was a seller for wrestling. Overall Irving separates the two main narratives; FILA and it's overall leadership role in wrestling, and the IOC and its shady business practices. It seems if wrestling wants back in the Olympics, then they will have to do what it takes to appease the IOC, but then they still have the broader problems with FILA regarding the overall direction of the sport. As an aside, I saw where Sergio Berlusconi, Italy's corrupt President and media/sports owner, recently said publicly that people shouldn't frown so much on bribery. And I'm not even seeing a big uproar over it. Puts the IOC stuff into context.
  10. I think the OIC is bluffing. Wrestling should call their bluff, and put a dagger into the crappy Olympics. Wrestling is pretty much the only sport I watch anyway. The Olympics is just for women nowadays. Not to mention they saddle the hosting cities with debt that they never get out of. Can't understand why any rational city would want to host them in the first place.
  11. Excuse for making an excuse. Fitting.
  12. I am glad I referenced the pussification of America, because like clockwork, Dr Gonzo came back at me with the mantra of whiny losers, being "offended." For the love of god toughen up a little. Wait, aren't you the one making a big deal over Evans' statement in the first place? Talk about thinned skinned babies, Evans wasn't even talking about you. Does your poor little heart bleed so badly for Taylor and Dake?
  13. Haines hasn't wrestled a good schedule? He's wrestled Super 32 2X, NHSCA Duals, Disney Duals, Powerade 2X, Escape the Rock 2X, and the rest of his PA regular season and post season schedule 2X. I doubt there are many kids Nationally around his weight who have wrestled as difficult a schedule. He has beaten A. Bradley who Intermat has in their top 10. He's lost close matches to Snyder and Vizcorrando.
  14. A little "Irish Jig" would have been swell! Maybe some Pennsylvania Polka?
  15. I thought RS freshman Depalma majoring Cisneros 8-0 was an interesting result. Depalma 2X PA placer just 8th as a senior.
  16. 1. A. Alton 2. M. Brown
  17. The other thing I remember from Ed's early HS days, was his lack of defense. He could score a lot of points, but gave up a lot of points too, high scoring matches. Obviously, he continued to excel at his attacks, but became much stingier with allowing points.
  18. I don't think he even made it out of Sectionals as a freshman in HS. He improved a lot from his Freshman year to Sophomore year, by not only making it out of Sectionals but winning Districts and placing at the State Tournament. He still had that same relaxed attitude on the mat even then. He was always a good mat wrestler, and improved the most on his feet. He was compared by the local paper to Phil Davis as a freshman because of his frequent use of the cradle.
