  1. I believe the fake Dake is now 0-5 in fantasy matchups as well.
  2. After reading your (TBar) back & forth posts with MSU158 in some of the other threads, my guess is that you will probably not be getting the benefit of the doubt with him anymore. Anyway, it was good for a laugh.
  3. Steve Dutton. Always seems to fly under the radar, even in this thread. For all the unfair comments he's received on this board, Gajales as well. Glad to see him end his collegiate career like that.

EDIT: How could I forget James English. What a storybook ending to his year. I think both he and Joey Dance should be awarded co-recipients of the Dustin Minotti award for 2014.
  5. Pennsy, Think your right. It was Cumberland Valley, wasn't it, right next to Central Dauphin?
  6. Excellent point. I was far more accomplished in wrestling than LAX in high school, but chose to play LAX in college, because it is just plain fun. It's also outdoors, and played in nice weather (late spring to early summer). To me LAX was flat out fun, whereas Wrestling was internal satisfaction, based on accomplishments and work ethic.
  7. As a Hofstra alumni, I was glad to see JT mention John Massa above. Actually, our only N.C. was a guy named Nick Gallo, way back in 1977. Anyway, as a Pride fan, I came to admire the grit of Dustin Manotti of Cornell. Massa and Manotti had some great matches against one another, and you could never get a good read on who would win the match beforehand. I'm not sure what Manotti's placings were at PIAA states, but he was a collegiate all-American at least twice, if not more (need a Cornelian confirmation on that). His last year he lost his 1st match in the NCAA tournament, and won 7 in the consolation round to place 3rd.
  8. I respectfully disagree. Everything that guy exhibited was out of pure joy, without any chest bumping, fist pumping, or in your face type of gestures. That's why is was so hilarious, and fun to watch.
  9. Very impressive. That victory dance was even more impressive, - priceless :-)
  10. Jakester, Do you remember Marty casting doubts about Dake's future after he lost to Ian Paddock in the NYS finals, as a JR? I do. It wasn't until he started doing well again in college, that he jumped on the bandwagon again and began claiming he was an expert. Do you also remember him & hollyboc claiming Taylor would never amount to much, and that all the buzz about him was ridiculous. I do. Taylor is 2,1,2 so far, with a Hodge trophy under his belt. I have a feeling he might be 2,1,2,1 after the upcoming season. Not to shabby.
  11. Didn't Garay make some noise at Hvy back in the day?
  12. chris conti - spladle dake was winning 13-2? just a guess though Even more interesting. Who did Dake wrestle before meeting up with Conti? Hint: Kyle was 33-0 going into that match, and the other wrestler was 25-4, and from Duanesburg (Albany NY region) No takers, huh? It was Amy Whitbeck. She was in 10th grade, Kyle was in 9th.

  14. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
  15. "Me thinks thou does protest too much". What's your agenda?
  16. Nice little clip. Thanks Vak. Is that part of the Iowa site, or a separate URL?
  17. jim_nasium, When Dake wrestled Paddock in HS, Marty doubted Dake would ever amount to anything, because he claimed that he was too defensive. If anyone needs verification on this, just ask PAOTTER. Now he comes in at the 11th hour, claiming he never had any doubts. Typical Marty.
  18. Silver Medal, yes they did. However LI Moron prefers to dwell on the negative.
  19. NJWC, It is personal with him. He has an agenda with Hofstra, as some of the kids, whose parents he's had words with in the past, have gone there. He was kicked off the local site over 2 years ago, and I believe his nutjob buddy has been banned from this site. You would think that fans of a team not performing well would naturally be disappointed, but looking at ways to improve the situation. He is truly a fan that no team needs, or wants ....
  20. Even if Mason is on, don't discount Sueflohn.
  21. Suprised nobody mentioned this. Churella, after he was kesseled.
  22. Was wondering if weight pulling has something to do with it as well. I'm thinking someone pulling alot of weight is naturally not going to feel as good as when their wrestling on a full stomach. Some of the examples above seem to have occurred on the last day of the tournament, where they didn't have to worry about making weight anymore. Obviously, if both wrestlers were pulling the same amount of weight though, this idea doesn't carry much 'weight' :-)
  23. Yeah. As I recall, you mentioned that he would never amount to anything after the Paddock match, because he was too defensive minded. Yeah, you really knocked that one out of the park....By the way, classy comment about Justin a few posts up. No wonder you were kicked off the L.I. forum
  24. Bob, My wife & I used to go to the final 4 every year, but no longer do so. That Memorial Day weekend used to be special. Back in the day, the 2 semi's were on Saturday, and the final started on Monday at 11am. With the game over at 1ish, we could still make the 5 hour trek back from MD to NY before evening. Now with the ESPN start time pushed back to 1pm or later, we decided to stay home and just watch it on TV. I'd rather not be stuck in traffic on Memorial day evening, when we have to work the following day. I'm thinking over folks may have felt the same way. There is some validity to the 'Syra-cruisers' suggestion as well, as their fan base travels very well to these events via RV's and the like.
