  1. Here's a favorite pair of mine....Russian wrestling shoes from a long time ago....

    He wrestled for Morgan State his freshman year and was an NCAA qualifier.
  4. Ah yes....MEDICINE MAN.....miss that guy!
  5. About 3 years ago, I started talking up Jordan Burroughs, not just as a great wrestler, but a great ambassador for our sport. He has grown so much on many levels, in wrestling, technically, training wise, strategy wise and more. But he has also grown so much behind a microphone, breaking down, not only his wrestling, but his day to day plans and his family life. What a great role model, great human being .....very special!!! Congratulations on #6, and #9 total World and Olympic Medals. Not sure he'd want to pursue this....it would still take a while, but American Bruce Baumgartner holds the World Record for most World/Olympic medals with 13....just dangling it out there....lol. Bruce has 5 Gold, 5 Silver and 3 Bronze. Perhap my favorite interview with Jordan is "Coffee with Jordan Burroughs" from Flo......great example of what I'm talking about....https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6250629-coffee-with-jordan-burroughs
  6. Gable has already proclaimed Jesse Whitmer as "the strongest man in the world!"
  7. I used to hit footsweeps, and I got accused of kicking shins as well.
  8. All of his guys were Gable's Guy!
  9. Randy Lewis...."The Impossible leg" or Lewboo
  10. What is the schedule for the World Championships???
  11. To me it's a big red flag when the guy has been to so many different schools.....9 different schools....I'll just stop right there, but I have made observations and had interaction with the guy.
  12. Wasn't trying to discourage you from coming!
  13. My first reaction....I've been to 42 NCAA's/36 in a row....not sure I've ever seen a one year old.....will he be able to make it through sessions....can he handle the cheering....if he starts crying, those around you may not appreciate it, and then will you have to take him up to the concourse, and now, you are missing the wrestling....just some thoughts....I may be wrong.
  14. Is this "Iron" sharpening "Iron"?
  15. I haven't seen an announcement on this yet.
  16. If you want another one who turned pro.....Greg Wojciechowski 3 time NCAA finalist/NCAA Champion...Univ. of Toledo
  17. Shelton Benjamin was a junior college transfer to Minnesota, where he was a 2 time all-american....great athlete....after that....never heard of the others.
  18. Mongolia was mentioned above, which reminds me of a Mongolian, who wrestledfor CCCP/Russia in the early 70's....Roman Dmietriev/105.5. He was a little block of "dynomite". I have him on super 8/transferred to video wrestling in the one of the first USA/USSR dual meets in this country @ McGaw Hall/Northwestern. Representing the Soviet Union Olympic Games 1972 Munich -48 kg 1976 Montreal -48 kg World Championships 1969 Mar del Plata -48 kg 1970 Edmonton -48 kg 1973 Tehran -48 kg 1974 Istanbul -52 kg European championships 1969 Sofia -48 kg 1981 Łódź -48 kg
