  1. from my understanding.....its probably the clause in Title IX that gave OCR the statutory right to interpret Title IX as well as implement it.
  2. While I agree with many of Jay's points.....just seemed to me that Mueller said he virtually knew "nothing" which either makes him (a) less than competent or (b) less than forthcoming. He could have answered that he knew the answers to Jordan's questions and did not want to give specifics so that investigation did not get compromised. However in spite of the opportunity to do so he did not. Therefore I can only conclude that Mueller is either (a) or (b). Anyhow this is my take on things.
  3. Maybe Mueller should have checked out to see who Jordan had to beat to become a 2 time NCAA Champion. :D
  4. that would be Matt Lackey I guess
  5. I heard that they're going to use the clinch and ball grab concept since it's not being used internationally any more. shut up :-)
  6. just because they say 6 figures does not necessarily mean anything.......could mean that its royalty driven which requires a certain $$ amount of sales. Anyway I hope Dake did not lock himself into any long term deals without getting paid a certain guaranteed amount.
  7. what better way to make sure things stay status quo than to boycott the "competition". Just goes to show how obtuse some folks in the wrestling community can be. All that was needed to get the NCAA to sanction the national duals, pay them a sanctioning fee, and the NCAA could have mandated all teams invited have to attend. At least that's my opinion on the subject.

  9. thought Terry Brands was pretty happy at Iowa....others do make sense though.
  10. Hey,,,,no Jesse Jantzen????
  11. The question really does not do justice to what (in my opinion of course) is going on with Taylor. Don't think it would have mattered who trained Taylor.....since it seems that Dake simply has gotten into Taylor's head and he cannot get him out of it. Just looking at their last match seems to be very telling. Taylor came storming out at Dake, took him down like he was on a mission. However, once Dake almost reversed him and almost put that inside cradle on Taylor, DT lost his edge, and basically stopped wrestling. Even though I believe DT is the better wrestler of the two, not sure he will ever be the better competitor. JMHO! Hmm.... So Taylor, who is the better wrestler, lost because something is "wrong" with him. Dake's 4-0 against Taylor in two different styles does not even suggest that he might be better? Dake has proven he can consistently beat Taylor in extremely close matches. Overall, Taylor has proven to be the better wrestler against other competition. He destroys EVERYONE. If I'm a college coach, I'd much rather have David Taylor on my squad than Dake. No doubt about it. Not disagreeing with the above.....only trying to make the distinction between the better wrestler from a technical standpoint and the better competitor. I am sure if you asked Dan Gable he would tell you that many of his opponents had better technique than he did. This is simply the case between Dake and Taylor. At this point I would pick Dake to win at least 8 out of 10 matches with Taylor even though I believe Taylor has better technique. Not sure why you find that so difficult to understand!

  13. I recently asked TB if he knew KMF's identity, and he stated that he did not. Of course he could be denying it, but he mentioned a couple of other things about KMF which lead me to believe he is telling the truth.
  14. Dale....there is, and it can be found at the NWHOF in Stillwater. No charge to view, but they do not have the licensing rights to sell any of the versions on hand.....you have to go thru NCAA or whoever is handling it for them.
  15. this will be 34 in a row (have been to all starting with 1980) plus 3 additional (68, 72, 76) for a total of 37.
  16. bear in mind that Megaludis has not had a redshirt year, and he could go 125.....although I am not sure who else might be at 125.
  17. have to agree with you....unfortunately this battle is not over yet.....and after hearing of the IOC's recent decision, it still seems as though anything is possible. :-(
  18. why they changed from the old format with teams from JUCO, NAIA, Div II, Div III is simply beyond the scope of my comprehension.....attendance would have certainly been better than 2,000!!!

    BIG 125

    No question about the weight cut getting to him part. I shudder think how great dominant he would have been as a 133/141 lbr, but not sure McDonough was as comfortable stepping up to the Olivers and Steibers of the wrestling world. However, as much as I like Delgado, I am pretty sure that McDonough will be bringing his spinach to Des Moines. BTW....will someone out there explain how McDonough was given the nickname "McBono"?
  21. you got that right and it looks like it backfired on BS as it cost him a shot at winning the dual with OSU. If you ask me the whole thing is BS (pun intended)!
  22. I believe the following rule needs to be changed from - 3.12.2 Combined total of falls and technical falls to 3.12.2 Combined total team points from wrestlers winning by fall and technical fall. I was thinking the same thing last nite as the heavyweigh match started and it was my (mis)understanding that this was the rule.

    actually EL left the door unlocked, and TB opened it for GG! :-)
