    45th NCAA in a row- annual post

    23 out of the last 24. Missed last year. Great to get back to the BURGH! Starting a new streak!

    I knew Denny from the forum and then was lucky to meet him at the Athens (2004) Olympics along with his buddy from Australia. Then found out that we both lived in Tucson. He was the real dealio. RIP

    2020 minneapolis ticket question

    Frank, if you don't get tickets before just go to the arena on Thursday morning and there will be tickets for sale from fans and scalpers. Try to avoid the scalpers.

    Fix vs Phillippi - Flo coverage..

    Their article didn't even mention that he wrestled. Had Kaid at 133. They should at least know the line-up.

    Fix vs Phillippi - Flo coverage..

    The article put out by Okie State said nothing about Fix losing :)

    Maybe Micky was just better today!

    Cejudo vs. Dillashaw (1/19/19)

    This looks like an anorexia commercial.

    Downtown Pittsburgh

    There are many restaurants in the downtown area specifically in the Market Square area which is less than 15 minute walk from the wrestling venue. And you need to go to Primantes. Use this link to see. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pittsburgh,+PA/@40.4407041,-80.0028658,19.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x8834f16f48068503:0x8df915a15aa21b34!8m2!3d40.4406248!4d-79.9958864

    Final X Lincoln

    Well, waiting to wrestle the best of three is more fair considering the old process had a fresh wrestler and one who went through the challenge. But the results were about the same as before with the favorites winning 2-0.

    NCAAs in Vegas?

    All locations have their pluses and minuses. I have been to more than 20 NCAA championships and location is never a consideration. I would like to know or understand how many of the attendees are like me and will go wherever. I think the number is significant. Maybe 50%? By moving the location it gives others the opportunity to attend this great event and then possibly deciding to attend in the future. Plus we need to get to the younger generation.

    How many NCAAs have you attended

    My streak of 22 years ends this year. Will be cruising in SE Asia including Vietnam. Will start a new streak in Pittsburgh next year. Originally from the BURG. Have a great time in Cleveland. Will be watching on TV.
  13. I went to college as a football player and hopeful basketball player. Although from western PA I had never seen wrestling in HS. I played football and didn’t make the BB team. So a friend who was on the wrestling team said I should try wrestling. I thought I was a tough guy (football player) so I went out for the wrestling team. Needless to say I wasn’t so tough on the mat. I really liked the physical nature of wrestling and it was certainly a better conditioner than football. I continued with football and participated on the wrestling team for 4 years. I was never very good but I stuck with it. I never cut weight. My senior year our 190 pounder got hurt before the conference tournament and I was the last man standing. I am 5’ 9’’ and 190 was probably the most I had ever weighed. But I represented for the team. Didn’t win a match but we won the conference tournament. Fifty years later our championship team was inducted into the colleges' hall of fame. So I went from never seeing wrestling to being part of a hall of fame team. Later I convinced my son to try wrestling and he was very successful and wrestled in D1. Wrestling is now my favorite sport (all styles). Wrestling fans always inquire if I wrestled. I say I wrestled but do not consider myself a wrestler.
