  2. Sure they do. You might be able to find some that don't but for everyone of those easy to find one that does.
  3. Not sure how Midlands saves money, do you realize the price of hotels etc in Chicago vs Chattanooga? Some programs are endowed, some with parts endowed - scholarships or coach. But if you had $15M sitting around with nothing good to invest in are you going to put it into this sport unless you've got 50 friends also with $15M willing to do the same? Also, everyone in the sport knows the only thing that matters is the B10 (look at Hodge etc) so as long as there are 10 teams in the B10 conference and we have a B10 tournament all should be happy correct? ;_; else maybe get Carl, Tommie, and the conference to think about the bigger picture and the sport. Regarding a coach/teach program, sure you could have: Brands Bros - Pheasant Hunting 101 John Smith - Catfishing with your Pet Dog. He could bring in bro Mark or Pat to guest lecture on Noodling when you Forgot your Tackle. Carl - Auto Speill Correct four Dumies Mark Perry jr - ahh ... nevermind None of this addresses the big problem in college sports which is the rich FB & BB programs (and a couple RTCs) just kept getting richer with their tv deals, shoe deals etc thus driving up the multi $M salaries requiring all to chase the dollars. Then you add things like requirements for free meals to all etc it drives out the lower budget programs & minor sports. Then take away the golden goose for one season and it really falls apart. :(
  4. Bob, Good to see you are still well. If you can get out of the home and still have a DL with Russel county at zero cases you should be safe to drive down Fossil and thru Sonic, enjoy! :)
  5. I was in that section, hadn't heard that account, good info. :)
  6. Perhaps review original post , was a reply to just the "top 5 takedown" and to poster who said "My list, feel free to pick apart!" to which I provided an example. But to your reply, Smith wrestled as a true freshman, he was pretty darn good at takedowns as a true freshman and only lost 4 matches. 3 of those losses (and one tie) were to the NCAA champion Darkus. The 4th loss was at a bad time 2nd round of NCAA in an era where you had to get "pulled thru" to continue else sure he might've AA'd and been on a good path to wrestle back for 3rd. His true So year lost to Jordan early, beat Jordan mid season and lost to him in the finals (so he did have wins over everyone). After redshirt year he lost to Sanchez first match back, beat him couple days later and dominated for the next two years. So (except the Fr tourney loss) he lost to 3 very good wrestlers in 4 years but also beat 2 of them (and tied the other). Scores would indicate he took down Darkus in at least the tie 7-7 match and also Jordan in at least one match and we are talking takedown category here. If comparing 4 year record with Tom Brands they are pretty much the same, both lost same number of times. I didn't look to see who Brands lost to or if any he never took down. Not saying Brands shouldn't/can't be on the top 5 list but just pointing out to the poster who asked "to pick apart" that if Brands is on the list then Smith should be there. He was better in the takedown category.
  7. Would you be ok with the rule - a wrestler who steps out you shall be required to step back in, sound ok? ;)
  8. Well sure, different competition. Smith beat Lewis while still in college, you know that impossible leg thing and Smith was I think 6 years younger. Believe Smith only 2 years older that Tom, in the above he destroyed Brands from neutral, only points Tom got were when Smith willingly gave up 1pt td cause it didn't matter.
  9. They didn't wrestle in college but point is how could any pick Brands bros over Smith on takedowns in a college GOAT category.
  10. Curious, what higher enrollment are you talking about?
  11. The Carl Report indicating Gilman will need to go into a 14 day quarantine to ensure no remaining Iowa Style virus. He will then be injected with fun antibodies and cleared for dodgeball. Check back in 2+ weeks. :)
  12. assuming post invention of automobile and airplane but ...
  13. Maybe career award or most attempts and completions but best single foot sweep - Matt Lackey!
  14. ahh ... might want to take a look at this:
  15. Is this really an Iowa plan to gain a net advantage on team point deductions, those Brands bros are sneaky cleaver and I bet mFlap did some cyfuring four em ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  16. MedicineMan TobusRex KMF scribe Jimmy Cinnabon, you said characters correct, should I go on?
  17. If accepted then they got what they wanted for obtaining an advanced degree, correct? So they should be happy.
  18. Hopefully he will explain to Carl the Iowa way so Penn State can start doing it the "right way." ;_;
