  1. Joe had a season ending injury at NE Duals (late November) his freshman year. My understanding is they don't RS at Bucknell (that a Patriot League rule). Yes they compete in wrestling out of the EIWA, but the school overall follows Patriot League Rules. So at Bucknell you're in and out in 4 yrs. So this will be his 5th year.
  2. Dude, keep the name calling at your Lehigh forum. Really tough to judge guys from back when PA had a single class winner only move on tournament. It comes down to who is hot and who may have had an off day. One would think a state championship tournament would be harder with more qualified guys in the event than just the best guy from the last event.
  3. I credit the kid n the dark singlet (on top) for seeing an opportunity and ending the match. Really poor return to the mat by the kid in white. Once had a parent come up to me and complain about refs calling quick pins. I asked what was your kid doing on his back? That was the last time anybody asked me about quick pins.
  4. Cartwheel to a round-off back to center - 5pts Cartwheel to a back flip sticking the landing - priceless.
  5. In response to the above, is it easier or harder to shoot on a wrestler with more than two feet. I mean, there are more targets to shoot at, or would you just stand there and stare in amazement and then get taken down by the multi-feeted opponent. Just wondering.
  6. I've got a fix for the bad commentary on B10. Just turn off the volume and stream music. When I go to an event live I don't have to deal with the commentary. So why deal with it at home. Simple mind. Simple fix.
  7. I don't know. The issue is to force the action on the mat without any of the piddling about whether a ride is a stall or not. No NF, no RT. Score as shown. It's a one second evaluation. Even a rocket scientist could figure it out. I'd be curious to see how many matches are won or pushed into OT based on the RT point and no NFs. Simple rule which forces wrestlers to make a decision. If a guy needs that point to win he is going to get aggressive to turn the bottom man, which should open things up for the bottom man.
  8. Was having a conversation with someone last week about riding time and the same thought came up was to get the RT point you should need to earn a NF2 or NF3 anytime in the match to get the RT point. It's easy enough. The precedent is already there for team score for TF as to whether you get 4 team points or 5 team points for a TF.
  9. Few years ago talked to a kid at Midlands who wrestled Fleming. His recollection was he didn't get choked out but Fleming stuffed his head so tight to the shoulder it pinched off the blood flow to the brain, things started going grey the more you tried to fight it, your arms went limp and next thing you know the ref is doing a 5-count. His next comment was he should have finished the takedown better and not gotten stuck on bottom.
  10. Not as old school as you might think. All depends on how hard the cut to 174 was prior to his RS year, his in season walking around weight and his weight after practice. Prior to Riddick showing up, Brown could pretty much choose where he wanted to go. I guess a lot will depend on if Riddick put on enough weight to man 197 and whether he can keep up with Brown.
  11. I'd think Brown would be a beast at 174. That would allow Riddick to man 184. Riddick jumping from 174 to 197 in a year seems to be a bit of a stretch. The following year I'd expect to see Brown at 184 and Riddick at 197.
  12. Rey v Flores ... Those type of match-ups may only come around every once in a while, but doggone it, that stuff is definitely worth the wait. As a Lehigh/EIWA fan, great couple of years watching those two go at it in duals, EIWA and Nationals ... nuff said. Last night Lehigh v Pitt came down to the last match. Pitt tossed out an itty bitty heavyweight. Lehigh's guy full size who couldn't/wouldn't pull the trigger. The Lehigh guy seems to get more active when the match is on the line. Same thing happened in the LU B-W wrestle-off. Whatever, last night, the match, the dual, all came down to a crazy big-guy scramble in the 2nd (?) OT series. It was friggin' exciting ... nuff said. And as far as other sports go, the homerun and slugfests make baseball exciting for most. Does that mean you eliminate guys like Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson and their no-hitters and perfect games? Don't think so. Happy Thanksgiving gents, especially to all former wrestlers who had to back-off because of a Thanksgiving weekend tourney!
  13. Too many people get focused on getting an athletic scholarship and forget about need based financial aid. My son got a better deal on a financial aid package than the wrestling coach (DI) could offer him with athletic aid. And his FinAid deal was also better than some of his athletic scholarship teammates. We were far from being "poor" and it helped having other siblings in college at the same time. It's just that some private schools have a boatload of money they HAVE to hand out. Want to see something interesting, go to Princeton's website and see who qualifies for "need-based aid." Sometimes the struggles teams who can offering FinAid is the athlete has to maintain a specific GPA which is higher than the GPA someone on an athletic scholarship must maintain.

My nephew got a better deal on a financial aid package than the wrestling coach (DI) could offer him with athletic aid. And his FinAid deal was also better than some of his "blue-chip" teammates.

Sometimes the struggles with offering FinAid is you have to maintain a specific GPA which is often higher than the GPA an "athlete" must maintain.
  15. You're on a athletic scholarship. You're getting paid. Nuff said.
