  1. Nice guy, but, wow... Can we just give guys five years and be done with this 6th year nonsense already?
  2. Yes, Jan was a prolific, open and thoughtful participant here. My condolences to his family. He will be missed.
  3. Blames COVID-19. Still sponsoring women's soccer: https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/29034684/cincinnati-drops-men-soccer-program-amid-widespread-uncertainty
  4. Neutral was an option. Quisel of Boise State chose it at 157. I believe the announcers said Hand chose top in the 3rd because he had 54 seconds of riding time built up from the 2nd period when Lesnar chose down. Lesnar got out quick in the 3rd, and I believe the tying TD was at the buzzer, so he never did get riding time.
  5. Me, of course. Can't believe no other poster has chimed in with themselves yet. Alas, for all of the injuries... Freshman year: Sucked Sophomore year: Broken foot Junior year: Torn ACL (at least I got a season's worth of matches to earn my letter) Senior year: Broken jaw https://pennathletics.com/documents/2017/12/6//Wrestling_history_letterwinners.pdf?id=9007
  6. I'll add some props for Chauncy Wynn, who I believe was the last AA for an HBCU at Morgan State (6th at 158 in 1990). Crazy long arms. A great cradler. https://nwhof.org/NCAA-Brackets/PDF/NCAA 1990.pdf
  7. Ahem... https://pennathletics.com/news/2018/7/11/wrestling-receives-1-million-gift-from-josh-harris-w-86.aspx
  8. Not an American, but Bilyal Makhov of Russia took bronze in both FS and GR at Worlds in 2015 in Vegas.
  9. It has been my experience that if your son first figures out: 1) what he wants to study 2) how far away he is willing to live from home 3) what type of campus environment he wants - large or small school, big city/small town/something in between, etc. the wrestling will take care of itself.
  10. You’re going to get at least 2 points for the attempted technique (what used to be called “appreciation”), 4 if you complete the throw, and your opponent cannot score on a counter once he lands out of bounds. I hate it - it is within the rules, but terribly cynical.
  11. At some point, talent trumps technique. The problem with our Greco program is that it is not attracting enough elite talent. Obviously, our most talented wrestlers are competing in D-1. That being said, as a former Greco wrestler, I don’t know how we attract more elite talent to the discipline given how awful I think the on mat product currently is.
  12. Hard to compare to 1984 given no Russians. 1995 in Atlanta was pretty solid: D. Schultz 5th at 74kg K. Jackson 1st at 82 M. Douglas 3rd at at 90 K. Angle 1st at 100 B. Baumgartner 1st at 130

  14. On the bright side, so many top wrestlers are not ranked in the Top 4 it will be just like not seeding at all
