    Incredible performance by both. 
     
    I am mad we will never get to see Miller vs Nolf. Amazing matchup.

    She didn't tell me when I could watch wrestling.  She told me if I wanted to get laid that night I needed to be out and hanging out with her, lol.

    I will do both. Coverage has been great. I had all mats streaming for all sessions.
    We went from partial finals coverage, to complete finals to semi and finals to ability to watch every match in a short amount of time. Credit Flo, even with the issues, to show that there is an audience and drive ESPN and B1G to increase coverage.
    Fans of Ball games take the coverage for granted.
    Please tell ESPN thanks

    jstock reacted to wrestlingnerd in PA and OH show their depth in the finals (with hat tip to MN)   
    125: Cruz vs. Lizak.
    Two kids from the Lehigh Valley area (or thereabouts) in the finals, one beating the undefeated returning finalist most thought was a prohibitive favorite and the other mauling his semis opponent (after gaining what must be like 15 lbs of water).
     
    141: Heil vs. DiCamillo.
    The Holy War, St. Ed's vs. St. Ignatius. See interview here: http://www.flowrestling.org/video/1136869-dicamillo-heil-press-conference-the-holy-war#.WMypDzsrLx4
     
    The NCAA tournament is in my opinion the most brutal NCAA competition in any sport. The three weigh-ins, three days of 5+ matches to go all the way, and the overwhelming pressure of a single event that captures 99% of an entire season's viewership makes it unique. It's pretty rare to see two guys in the finals who grew up within a stone's throw of each other. 
     
    How often has this happened? I can't think of anything off the top.
     
    At the rest of the weights:
     
    133: IA (Clark) vs. MN (Gross)
    149: PA (Retherford) vs. IL (Mayes)
    157: PA (Nolf) vs. NV (Lavallee)
    165: PA (Joseph) vs. CA (Imart)
    174: OH (Bojo) vs. MI/KY/MN (Hall)
    184: MI (Dean) vs. TX (Nickal)
    197: MO (Cox) vs. MN (Pfarr)
    HWT: MD (Snyder) vs. CO (Medbery)
     
    25% (5) of this year's finalists are from PA
    15% (3) from OH
    10% (2) or 15% (3) from MN (3 if you count Hall as MN)
    IA, IL, NV, CA, MI, TX, MO, MD, and CO get one each. (You could argue MI and KY gets 1 from Hall too, I suppose)

    Good to see this interview getting some play at Flow. I loved Kolat when he was competing and have always rooted for him. And Kraiser seems like such a dedicated, hard-working and classy guy.

    Wow, I just had an epiphany, it turns out that it is none of my business how Spencer, his parents, coaches and doctors handled his injury. I just realized that I don't have all the facts and medical records to make an informed decision. They didn't invite me to the discussions on the pro's and con's of wrestling through the end of the season. I guess it is just not my place to pass judgement on how others rais their kids

    Somebody on this site should be able to give a definitive answer by Wednesday. I think Cael will address the situation in his next press release, he heard we want some transparency in the PSU program.
