  1. Being a person who often had to train next to the best opponents I had to compete against, it seemed to me that no one really changed their style in any drastic way, but definitely changed how they trained and recovered in drastic ways.
  2. Thanks for the update. I have always believed a good outcome is a good outcome regardless of the motivation. Not a fan of womens sports minus gymnastics but this is a good thing for wrestling
  3. Was that the impetus to add or were they already planning on it? They seem to be fostering a more inclusive culture for the last few years. You seem tied in with good knowledge of the program
  4. Using the Israel study, not the Kentucky, which shows 13 times less likely to be infected. When addressing a biggest concern, you specifically - how, concerned are you with college wrestlers dying of covid? In addition, you have 2 studies showing exact opposite results. What are your specific thoughts on the statement that when it comes to naturally immune vs vaccinated, a nuanced approach is better than a 1 sized fits all hard line response?
  5. I have a masters degree in health and I am a teacher. I have to stay educated on the subject per ed code, and I enjoy researching health topics with an open mind, trying to learn new things or at minimum, stay informed on relative topics that students may have questions about. Facebook news is slanted, just like CNN, Fox, and Microsoft. Coming out of those camps, I just disregard it. Facebook especially.
  6. Natural immunity has scientifically been proven to be anywhere from 13 to 27 times more effective against covid than the vaccine, yet we scream at people who wont take an unnecessary medical injection because they are dangerous, all while not understanding the naturally immune we are screaming at are over ten fold more immune than the ones who got the injection. Maybe Kennedy already had it and is better equipped against the virus than many people calling him a danger to society or somehow morally corrupt for not going along with the narrative "just let them inject you idiot". These, btw, are the same people running a slogan "protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated" and calling for a 4th injection to be safe. Perspective seems to be a premium the last 6 years
  7. Can you go into more detail on this? Why on earth would he do that?
  8. Thought it was Shin Kicker Mocco
  9. You must not know many highly motivated educators
  10. Olympic medals are far more rare than world championship medals
  11. How is Dave Grohl an indignant clown?
  12. The drug use isnt to get jacked, its to handle getting beat up 300 days a year. I can assure you, there are plenty of fat asses in the wwe juicing up to be able to perform a brutal schedule.
  13. Im in the core curriculum for greco and in some of the movement skills in the freestyle section. Its a lot better than a book
  14. I think many NCAA AA's could probably place in the depth we have right now. I watched wtt in greco and I know I have teammates who could get up off the couch and be an instant contender. 10 years ago no way that happens. I put up 11 on arguably the best 141lber of all time, and I was ranked maybe 5th or 6th. I honestly think if half of the AA's showed up to trials, our team would make major improvements in a few years. Guys coming out of NCAA's are capable of getting medals eventually. We've done it before.
  15. Im guessing Gable and Sanderson were predicting it; most likely sure of it
  16. Pushing a guy 20 feet off the mat who doesnt want to get pushed is pretty damn hard
  17. Cool list. Thanks for compiling that
  18. 97 is probably the toughest to win, easiest to medal in. 65 is the hardest to even get a win in.
  19. Wrestlers have been tucking in non cuffed sweats into socks since before I was in HS. Kids would think those dudes were nerds then they would smoke everyone. It came from necessity, not internet fashion.
  20. We have already shown what the recipe for success is in America when it comes to greco. Enough so that we won a world title with it. ALL of our medalists in the past 20 years have shared 1 of 3 traits, and none of more than one: 1 - Successful completed NCAA career. 2 - Ivan Ivanov was their sole developmental coach and they spent most/all of their training time with him. 3 - Dremiel Byers. Would we be able to combine those things again? For the right money, yes. Easily.
  21. You guys are crazy if you think that a wrestler with his credentials, connections, and mental capacity couldnt find someone capable to advise and run certain aspects of a college team in an interim period that has had previous success at the highest levels of DI coaching.
  22. The belief that the central nervous system can play a part in the peripheral and autonomic isnt really voodoo. Most people just dont understand it very well, including scientists. Seems to have worked though. Cant say you will ever get a boring interview with Gilman
  23. World Silver in 17. Ranking Series gold medals from ’18 Yasar Dogu and ’20 Matteo Pellicone as well bronze medals from the ’19 Ivan Yariguin and ’18 Pan American Championships. 21 Deglane bronze. Several wins over world medalists in the last 4 years. How tf is that a likely DNP?
