    Amazing. Gable’s trolling has gotten so much better. I’m glad he treated it like a real technique video and didn’t break character.

    Funny thing here. 30 years ago, the world wide web didn't even exist. Back then, when you discussed events from history you either had an encyclopedia or your memory to rely on.
    If it was something that wasn't in an encyclopedia, then you just had your memory - which was, and still is, hit or miss for most all of us when it comes to specific details of events happening even 1 year ago, much less 40-50 years ago.
    My point - you can diligently fact check the stories of legends and find results that are fuzzy. Or you can just enjoy them. I'd recommend the latter.

    powershouse reacted to iwrite in Dan Hodge's Legacy   
    Dan Hodge's legacy will live on for several reasons -- not only for his total domination on the mat as an Oklahoma Sooner and for the fact that he is the only wrestler to ever appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated and the only man to ever win national titles in both wrestling and boxing, but because one of the top awards in all of wrestling is named in his honor. To date, over one million fans have seen the Dan Hodge Trophy presented in person since its inception in 1995.
    But there is also his kindness and patience when attending hundreds of kids tournaments, and during his many appearances at the WIN Memorabilia Show at the NCAA tournament.
    Once at our WIN Show, there was  a long line of kids to get Dan's autograph. Dan was tired from a day-long  event but wouldn't stop. The last boy arrived and shoved a piece of paper at him and said nothing. Dan smiled but did nothing. The boy stared sheepishly,  and mumbled "Sign." Again, Dan did nothing, just smiled. The little boy looked around nervously and then Dan said "What else should you say?."  The boy paused and said softly, "Please." Dan jumped up with both arms raised, grinning -- "You said the magic word!" and sat down and signed. The boy's dad was standing next to me, and said:  "What a great lesson Dan Hodge just gave my son! What a great man!"
    That's the Dan Hodge I knew and admired so deeply. -- Mike Chapman, creator of the Dan Hodge Trophy and author of "Oklahoma Shooter: The Dan Hodge Story".

    In all honesty, as someone with profound hearing loss and also reads lips and facial expressions AND works with the public all day...  this has not been easy.  (and I am not saying this in an anti-masker sort of way... just be sure to clearly annunciate for people you talk to.  Thanks!)

    Optics from role models absolutely matters. My father-in-law died from Covid on 12/1/20. If I had to wear a mask every day for years if it meant he would still be around I would. I work for a county public health department with county commissioners who actively disincentivized wearing a mask...up until the second wave...optics matter. Words matter.

    I take full credit for lighting a fire under the rodents tail. These victories were 10% eggum, 20% the team and 70% me for calling them out for being bad vs Iowa. No need to celebrate me though..

    Salazar had one of the most promising ass-kickings I’ve seen in a while. It’s great to see his effort from a true frosh that isn’t a blue chipper expecting to contend for a high podium spot from day one. Hope he builds on that fearlessness throughout the season.

    I’m still blaming it on Cael. He killed Minnesota’s dual advantage, convinced Mark Hall to renege on his commitment to the Gophers and probably sent in an undercover Xanax dealer to the dormitory.

    Fortunately it seems like Minny's takedown total is likely to double after the HWT match.

    Looks like he's already made a splash to the Navy Program...Beats #18 Lehigh for their 1st win in 10 years over them 21-9...He has 55 guys on roster and great facilities...I think Navy in the near future will start having some great results.

    JB weighed in at 181 and per his admission has not started his descent to 163. DT a little under 189. I get DT had a few hours to rehydrate, but it wasn't 20 lbs. Definitely a noticeably size advantage, but the weigh-in weight is closer to the wrestling weight now than it was when Dake wrestled Cox with the old weigh-in rules.
