  1. Wow... someone here is a bit hypersensitive and guess what... its not me!
  2. Horrible analogy... Wreckless driving is against the law and gets many people hurt or killed all the time. Your analogy seems to be promoting breaking the law, being wreckless, and taking unnecessary risks. What Pico is doing IMO is not wreckless. Hes taking advantage of a tremendous opportunity and using his tremendous talents to accomplish some pretty incredible goals. Kudos to him for having the courage to go after it, but horrible horrible analogy on your part.
  3. Who will be the face of NCAA Wrestling next season? Last season it was David Taylor... The year before was Dake and Taylor... Others over the years were Brent Metcalf and Ben Askren...
  4. While I am a big fan of Taylor and was rooting for him last year.. You do realize that Taylor and Dake are the same age. Dake did not take a redshirt while Taylor did so the "more mature" argument doesn't really fly...
  5. In the NCAA final? Nothing. In the previous 2 times they wrestled this season? A whole lot! Howe IMO was screwed over in the conference finals. Again I state IMO which stands for IN MY OPINION, Howe wins 8/10 times. That being said Perry showed up to wrestle and Howe didn't! Perry got the job done Howe didn't! And like I said earlier Howe looked TERRIBLY flat. This is my opinion. Agree or disagree it doesn't matter. It's just an opinion!
  6. Hummer.. Horrible idea. What's the difference between a forfeit and an injury default? How does scoring a forfeit and a fall being equal in a dual meet make sense but not in a tournament? If you take away bonus points then you could see coaches strategically withdrawing wrestlers from tournaments in order to prevent the opposing team from scoring bonus points. Example... Let's say going INTO the 165lbs match Oklahoma State was in first place over PSU by 4.5 points. Instead of wrestling Caldwell where he could lose by a major and give the team title to PSU... They could withdraw Caldwell giving Taylor a forfeit win, but no bonus points and Okie State wins by .5
  7. Howe absolutely is a stud, but being a stud and being over rated are two completely different things. My overrated comment was explaining the flaw the the argument that because Howe was 2-1-3-2 he can't possibly be overrated. If Someone was expected to be a 4 time champion and he comes out with 4 runner up finishes you agree that they were overrated? IMO I don't think Howe was overrated. I think if Howe and Perry wrestled 10 times.. Howe wins 8 of them. With that said, hats off to Perry for winning when it counted most.
  8. You can absolutely go 2-1-3-2 and be overrated. Being overrated means you were EXPECTED to accomplish more than you actually did. Regardless of who he faced most people believe that Howe was hands down going to win the NCAA title. Most people didn't give Perry Much a chance of repeating. I think Howe wrestled terribly flat and Perry took full advantage. Personally I was pretty shocked not only that Howe lost.. But also how the match wasn't even close!
  9. I remember back in 2009 someone on this board swore up and down that Taylor was going to be too small and not strong enough to have any success at 149lbs (his redshirt year) and that he was totally going to wash out... I totally forget his username but I wonder what he has to say now...

  11. Hey, he only needed one. D.T. And DT was NEVER an ISU guy so saying Cael Had 2 recruiting classes is really just a case of sour grapes! When Cael first got the job as PSU head coach in spring of 2009 there was a huge buzz of excitement in PA. I took my team to camp up in Happy Valley that summer and let me tell you the entire group of PSU wrestlers and staff members were incredibly excited about their new coach. You could just tell that the program was about to embark on an era of greatness!
  12. I've read a couple times on here how Sanderson had 2 recruiting classes... Don't you think that's a bit exaggerated? Yes, David Taylor came with him after commiting to Iowa State, but Taylor NEVER ENROLLED at ISU and was going to go wherever Sanderson went. He never would have signed with ISU without Cael. Andrew Long transferred over to PSU from Iowa State saw ell, but it wasn't like the huge exodus that took places with Tom Brands and the Virginia Tech transfers... So which guys during the past 5 years were really ISU recruits that ended up at PSU causing Cael's ability to win 4 NCAA titles?
