    MikePorcelli reacted to JasonBryant in Why is Cael's 1st year ignored in Title wins?   
    Well, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M went from not having a team to winning the NJCAA championship in the program’s first year.

    So let’s throw Joe Renfro into the discussion!

    In 08-09, Penn State was 8-12-2, and finished 7th and 17th in the B10 & NCAA tournaments.
    09-10, they were 13-6-1, and finished 5th and 9th in the tournaments.

    The one guy who I think could make the team with a small amount of Greco training is Kyle Dake.

    I'm going to speculate that was meant to mean at least half (5 or 6 of 10) on a worlds year, rather than Olympic.

    Good look. Chamberlain making the team may well spur other guys to cross over.

    They also just added Jordan Oliver as a volunteer assistant. Imagine being a lighter guy in a room training with Coleman Scott, Tony Ramos, and Jordan Oliver. I’m expecting big things from our light weight guys in the future.

    Casey Stengel, "Forget the other fellow, Walter Johnson. The Jewish kid is probably the best of them." 
    I am taking Stengel's word for it.

    MikePorcelli reacted to Billyhoyle in Kerkvliet has entered the transfer portal...   
    He was really great at the beat the streets events, i’ll give you that. Whether you like it or not, wrestlers are judged on how they do at the premier tournament of the year. If a wrestler wins midlands or the scuffle but goes 0-2 at NCAAs, he had an unsuccessful year. Thomas Gilman had a better freestyle career than Metcalf.
    And to further clarify I think Brands is an outstanding coach-one of the best in the country. Just not as good as Tom Ryan or Cael.

    Where in the world did he come from??? He graduated from Buffalo at age 18! Did he ever do anything while at Buffalo? This is an insane story.

    MikePorcelli reacted to treep2000 in Is Snyder to NLWC really a "betrayal"?   
    As a Buckeye fan, I'm not happy that he's choosing to leave.  As a fan of Snyder, and as a fan of Team USA bringing the best it possibly could, his logic to maximize his own capabilities and to train with a new group of people makes ALL the sense in the world. 
    Betrayal only exists for those that do not understand the precious notion of individualism.  We must protect this notion at all costs.  Congrats Kyle on the move.  I hope it serves you well, and you take it to Sadulaev and Sharifov the next time you meet.

    One other that would make sense geographically (and where there are already 2 separate clubs) would be NC State/Wolfpack and UNC/Tar Heel.

    Good(ale) for him, but he should be making more given the cost of living in NJ and his success over the last few years. I hope there are some nice performance-based bonuses in there. 
    I wonder how Pritlaff feels about this. For Rutgers’s sake, he better be taken care of too.

    I have never seen a wrestler with more heart/drive than Burroughs.  Not sure I ever will either.  Smith was probably the better overall wrestler, but over and over again Burroughs seems to find just a bit more to give in a match when nobody should have anything left.
