  1. From what I have heard - the accident occurred on a military base (Marines?) and happened during an exercise w/ what sounds like Pugil sticks. Apparently Richard was hit in the head by another wrestler on the team and his helmet broke/shattered and pieces from the helmet hit him in the eye area penetrating his skull. My information source is 3rd hand so any corrections are welcome. Richard Perry is a wonderful person - praying he recovers 100%.
  2. OK St and Okla U wrestle each other twice every year and both matches count on the their records - does that count any different just because they happen on different dates?
  3. 1. Mathew Miller 2.Nathan Kraisser
  4. Like Yogi Berra once said about baseball - nobody ever goes anymore because its too crowded.
  5. Many duals are poorly attended because they are boring. Two reasons for this; coaching that does not encourage aggressive wrestling (not a problem where coaches do otherwise, e.g. Penn State, Iowa, Minny, Ok St, etc), and refs that do not call stalling, which is most of them (but not all). NCAAs are exciting because the stakes are high, thus even boring matches become very interesting.
  6. I watched the movie on Dec 27th w/ my son (who was also a college wrestler) and my wife. Overall I/we thought the movie was very slow moving and close to being boring. The acting was excellent especially Rufalo playing Dave Schultz. From an actual video I saw of DuPont doing a self-promotion, DuPont was weirder than Steve Carell's acting portrayed, but he did terrific job. Not sure why the movie skipped from 1988 to 1996, but it would have been cool to show Dave carrying Kenny Monday after Monday won the '88 Olympics after Monday beat him out for the spot on the team (that story alone would have made the movie a lot more interesting). I wished I had saved the $10 and waited until it was 'free' on cable.
  7. Great win for Geo Mason U even if Maryland is down - slowly,but surely Joe Russell has GMU heading in the right direction.

    I saw Kyle wrestle a few times, he was very, very good.
  9. And that is good? A mediocre wrestler stalling his butt off can have a significant impact on deciding the team championship? That will help our sport?
  10. Weather, wrestlers have to peak 3 more times than in past and injuries are bound to sideline key wrestlers before and after the duals. Just why should any team have a lead before the NCAAs start? Seems like the committee is trying increase the popularity of D1 wrestling w/o actually addressing the real problems.
  11. In a classy move Brian Antonelli has been named Associate Head Coach, recognizing his contributions and dedication to Navy Wrestling.
