  1. This event is exactly 2 months away. That's enough time to train and peak for the event, but hosting any sort of trials between now and then seems tough to do. I hope the guys and girls on our teams are fully ready to go. Will we see the #1s? Dake, Taylor, Cox, Burroughs? What about Spencer Lee?
  2. I watched the Senior Nationals live today and I didn't know who half of the people were or what college they went to (or currently attend). I know that Vito, Massa, and Valencia still have eligibility, but was there anybody else? Any bio/background information put together would be appreciated by all. Thank you
  3. Just curious if they are testing all athletes and coaches and how often. Do they have quarantine procedures in place?
  4. What's going on with Flo and the girls not accepting to wrestle on this card? Lots of arguments going on via Twitter today and it's tough to get the actual story. Flo should chime in and tell the truth. Some girls saying they weren't offered the same amount as the boys, and Pat Downey is going off on them not wrestling on Flo's platform.
  5. Didn't Adeline Grey just move out there as well? This is horrible. I live nearby and I am heartbroken, especially since they have so much potential this upcoming season. Where do all the guys go? Where does Abas go?
  6. Lol at all of you. I suck. Anyway, will the teams be able to have non-conference duals? Will they be allowed to fly during the regular season? Will fans be able to attend duals/tournaments?
  7. Edited my post. Sorry about that. I meant to say that D2 in CA canceled fall sports but I was even wrong about that. I guess it was a single conference.
  8. D2 already canceled all fall sports (Sorry, I thought that D2 colleges in CA canceled fall sports and even worded that wrong. I guess it was only 1 conference that did), and in California, all California State University classes will be online for the fall. At the high school level in CA, the CIF is looking at a shortened football season in the fall where they start in late September or early October (all preliminary). I teach and coach in CA and our district is not allowing any sort of contact, practices, or even hiring of new coaches right now for any sport. I'm nervous that CA, and other states, might push this back even further. I hope not. On Twitter, Willie Saylor mentioned something about how his sources say we will have a college wrestling season next year. What does it look like for all of you across the country?
  9. After Khabib's dad got Covid and went into a coma there was a lot of news about what the Corona Virus has done to Dagestan. I don't have any official sources so I'm reaching out here, but on Reddit, a lot of the locals in Dagestan were posting that at least 90% of the people in that area had the virus and the government was covering it all up. Anybody have any facts on this? Dagestan is a major hotbed of wrestling so I'd imagine this is affecting the wrestling world there a lot. Thanks for any facts!
  10. Didn't Kary Kolat or someone win a semifinal match at the world championships, go to their hotel to rest before the finals, and then come back to find out their match didn't count because a protest or challenge? I'm honestly very vague on this one and can't remember if they had to re-wrestle or if they just told him he lost the match.
  11. I'd start on defining mental toughness. What is it? How can you measure it? How can you replicate it? Once you start going down that road you realize that the phrase, "mental toughness," is an overused and cliche term that very few people can define or measure. A lot of coaches and leaders will use terms like grit, perseverance, resilience, etc., to define mental toughness, so what we should do is to teach those specific skills, which can be measurable. In the wrestling world, we get it, but can we specifically define what it is? HOw would we explain it to encompass all sports and all life situations?
  12. If our wrestlers get an extra year of eligibility, is there anybody on track to be a 5x Big Ten Champion? Is it seniors only who would get an extra year? Or all qualifiers for the tournament?
  13. Originally, I read the results from a non-Flo source, but I thought the publicity of the dual was pretty cool this morning. Flo showed a video of people storming the mat after the win. It looked like the gym was packed for the dual. Regardless of anything, if a Big 10 team has won 60 straight dual meets then loses to a Pac 12 team, that is HUGE news.
