  1. Still have the two in 319. I'll bring them to St. Louis, can meet someone at the venue. -Best
  2. I have two in the Mezzanine 319 if anyone is interested.
  3. Just send you an email. Dibs on the Karelin poster
  4. Staged or not, it seems pretty cool to me.
  5. Didn't Oregon actually take the wrestling room from the team for this locker space before they axed the program? I seem to remember reading that a few years ago.
  6. I think this sums it up. I am a Virginia guy, but happened to be at a PA club practice with my son the day it was announced that Cael was coming to Penn State. All of the parents and wrestlers were overjoyed; one of the other parents there said “why would any kid from Pennsylvania consider leaving to wrestle at another school?” With recruiting like that in arguably the toughest wrestling environment in America how can you not build a first rate team?
  7. I went to a tournament hosted at UMBC last year. I was told by several UMBC club wrestlers that all they needed was the $$ to go forward with D1. One of them said it would cost about $100K. This is from a couple of very nice, but still young college guys, so take it for what it is worth.
  8. Do swimmers want to shake the really skimpy swimming shorts, or runners theirs, how about the basketball players with what in my day we called a "skort" they look ridiculous! Baseball players wear skin tight pants for no apparent reason, and football players wear capri pants; if all of that is true (and it is), why would changing the singlet bring more to the sport. It is an excuse for not wanting to participate in the toughest sport known to man. If we changed the singlet, they could complain about the headgear next; it wouldn't matter.
  9. I think you will see him at 141. Expect good things, I don't think he knows the meaning of rest.
  10. How about last year's top 10 list... I'm a VT fan so biased, but we were 11 last year, broke into the top 10 (10th) this year. The schedule, recruits, facility, and commitment seem to all be where they need to be. I expect we will improve again next year and can't wait to be on someone's top 10 right from the start. BTW thanks for the mention Gonzo!
  11. I like some of the ideas, not so much the nearfall. The sport is about control, you should be able to bring him back in. I'd like a rule where if someone goes out of bounds during a shot / scramble they get a warning, the next time(s) they lose a point.
  12. I thought it was great. The airport was a breeze, the people were gracious & happy, but the restaurants around the venue were overwhelmed pretty quickly. Parking was easy to get and all of the seats in the arena looked like they had a pretty good view. It was a little crazy when the lights went down, but this is wrestling, it didn't stop a thing.
  13. I think the funniest moment of the tourney was the Gopher fans showing up in singlets by the tunnel. Great job guys!
  14. Medicine_Man - remember Jarrod already beat Delgado earlier in the season in SV. It is going to be hard to do that twice in a row, but this kid is tough and looks to me to be right on peak.
  15. I really loved watching Jarrod Garnett win the ACC's, his pin in the finals was great. Right now, I don't think there is anything this young man can't do.
  16. Thanks guys! This place always has the answers...
  17. Have they released how many allocations per conference yet? If not when should we see them? Thanks!
  18. Graff is going to be a beast at 133. I think he will have a long and glorious freestyle run also. I'd love to see one more Devin Carter match, first was 8-2, second 2-1, I think DC has closed the gap.
  19. I'm a Hawk fan from Virginia (go figure), and here is my highly underqualified take. Iowa is always tough, yea Mike Evans didn't AA last year, I think he gets it done this year. I think there are a lot of positives that many don't see. McDonough, Ramos, St. John, Evans, Lofthouse, Telford... Iowa has some horses that will be pissed off and ready to run as an underdog at essentially a home event for the NCAA National tournament. Remember in 2010 (I think) they had lost a bunch of seniors the previous year in the line up, no one gave them a chance and they won the title. I won't argue that this team has it's work cut out for them, but I'm betting on this dark horse to bring it home. One way or another it will be fun to watch it unfold in Iowa; I hope to see a bunch of you there.
  20. Seems like Devin Carter would be a great candidate. He just won the Penn State Open at 141.
  21. Thanks for the link, I just got one. A little piece of history!
  22. Good news. With 5 DI programs, and new opportunities on the way, it is a great time to be a Virginia wrestling fan.
  23. CP worked with my son at some camps a few years ago, he was a great young man. I believe he has a degree in nursing (damn fine career) and was/is working in the field. I have a good friend (guy) who is a nurse practitioner, makes a great living.
  24. I'll miss seeing him filling in at Tech, but wish him great success. I think he has tremendous potential.
  25. I'll bet I'm older than most of you here, and I'm OK with a fist bump as long as it is respectful. Tradition calls for a hand shake, and later in life having a solid hand shake will be important, but I have seen hugs and fist bumps from opponents who respect each other and I'm OK with all of it. I'll bet most ref's will bring them back unless they shake though.
