    Richard Perry accident

    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%.

    Shout Out to Navy Scheduling

    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?

    National Duals is DEAD????

    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.

    George Mason knocks off Maryland

    Great win for Geo Mason U even if Maryland is down - slowly,but surely Joe Russell has GMU heading in the right direction.

    Dual Component Model/Presentation

    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?

    Dual Component Model/Presentation

    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.

    Whether Burroughs can wrestle or not, this whole thing seems like an excellent way to confuse the opposition.
  15. Personally I have been a long time Lee Van Cleef fan. I did not know him personally as he grew up a generation before me in the same hometown - Somerville, NJ.

    Bloom job.....

    The majority of Bloomsburg starters in 2012-13 were not from PA and it probaby will be the same in 2013-14. I believe the Bloomsburg summer camps were run to fund at least in part the costs of the program including scholarsips. Same for other fund raisers. I would guess its different at Buffalo.
