    fullnelson got a reaction from Bigboi Trained in 45th NCAA in a row- annual post   
    Fond memories of those first years-1975 at Princeton- Between sessions in the practice room was the best wrestling and exchange of ideas, techniques, etc. Greats of the past would show up and wrestle. Dan Gable would take on all comers as they lined up 40+ for the chance to go takedowns with him; he did that again at the 1975 World Coaches clinic in Mn, when Wade Shalles showed up in line. He hit a firemans on Dan, but Dan simply used the momentum of the shot to roll him thru, and Dan comes up holding 2 & 2, which is how freestyle would have scored it. Only time I've ever seen anyone do that technique. Anyway, I miss the early years of practice room exchange of ideas; learned a lot; I remember seeing Sergei Beloglazov playing with some of our best. Ask Chertow how it went.

    It's interesting that the college admission scam exposed,  the only athletes scamming the system are females; they could scam the system because necessary quotas have to be met to offset the number of males in the athletic dept. There isn't a male-only team's coach in the country who doesn't know what he's getting; girls don't need any experience to make some of these teams (in name only).

    They are using the system, which calls for equal numbers of the sexes, to falsely present their daughters as athletes; yes there is a connection.

    This video looks like a 5th generation copy of the VHS tape I have (the original). Interesting that 2 days before the tournament began LeeRoy Smith dislocated his shoulder while slipping in the shower, so Randy hustled into Edmonton, somehow made the weight, and actually had his hand raised after the match, only to have the match overturned during their backroom video review. This happened so often with FILA; so much better today, but I can think of at least 5 Americans denied their opportunity to win Gold because a bout was overturned after everyone left the gym.

    Enough credibility that he was voted to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships Committee, and, until earlier this month, was President of the National Wrestling Coaches' Association. Nearly everybody in the wrestling world would like to have half as much credibility as Tom Ryan, myself included.

    Jim Morgan, successful coach at UT Chattanooga 70-82 ? ; several AA's in D-1 and D-2. Jim never even started in HS, serving as a backup his entire career; similar to Howard Ferguson of St Ed's lore.
