  1. Im not so hard on Metcalf. I probably would have done the same. If someone backflips on me to celebrate, Im gonna feel pretty disrespected as a competitor. This is coming from someone who likes DC. When he was at the training center, we got along great.
  2. First - Does anyone know what the two guys at each corner wearing the striped ref shirts are for? Second - Mcilravy was sponsored by Gateway 2000. I know they are SD based, but have never heard of a computer manufacturer sponsoring wrestlers. How did he land that?
  3. Greg Strobel would know the answer to this, whether his actions were based out of mental illness, or his actions were based off of his feelings about African American wrestlers. Strobel witnessed probably all or most of his interactions with the athletes.
  4. Nice of you to tell someone what college is about for them.
  5. Watch video of these guys in the early 60s and earlier, then watch an average high school state championship match in todays era. There is your answer
  6. This doesnt mean they arent used and arent effective. How many offensive scores are generated from head positioning?
  7. If its getting used with success in Olympic medal matches, its pretty tough to say its a move that only works on scrubs
  8. North Korea - Compete more. NK produces really good wrestlers that are really, really exciting to watch. It sucks we only get to see them once or twice every 4 years
  9. Just wanted to throw out to Jerseywrestling, these are really cool and I enjoy reading them. Thanks for putting these out.
  10. This is in the German bundesliga. They use different rules and procedures
  11. And you dont think other coaches beside yourself would take a minute to look at what the tournament or matches were, and determine the level of competition? Maybe thats how you went about your business. Its not how I did. But when you start getting to third and fourth tier wrestlers of the Junior College level, it becomes incredibly difficult. Again, maybe thats how you feel. Both of my college roommates coach for the #1 ranked Juco team with multiple national finalists and multiple team championship wins. I am confident in their ability to watch film, put it in context, evaluate the level of the opponent, and determine if at least 1 coach in the nation would take a chance with a scholarship. If you cant determine that with video, thats you.
  12. I was an assistant college coach. I helped recruit a team that won a national championship. I had to scout other high level wrestlers and analyze their strengths and weaknesses as a coach and as an athlete. I claimed I could tell if a guy could get a juco scholarship by watching him compete. Why does that sound incredible?
  13. Post some videos of you wrestling. Most college coaches know right away if you can get a scholarship at at least the JC level just by watching you. I know I can
  14. One injury at 2 weight classes could change a to ton of things for our country, leaving Bo as perhaps our best option. He just won U23 worlds as well. Putting funds into a guy who is an age group world champ doesnt seem that idiotic to me
