  1. More than 90%. Kemp's reemergence in recent years, including on social media, shows he was living in world where aging did not occur for the 15 or so years he was disconnected from wrestling.
  2. I picked out the exact same schools, plus Pitt. However, I think there will be some complete surprises with schools that 6 months ago we thought never would be cut end up getting the hatchet. Maybe like an OU or Wisconsin. Sure hope not but think really only about 6 to 10 schools are "100% safe."
  3. Probably worth mentioning these stats are from and for competing in Bellator and not in the UFC.
  4. Well, if they subsequently wrestled at a catchweight after those circumstances, who are you going to bet on?
  5. David Taylor never has a chance to claim the hypothetical P4P best as long as Dake is still competing. No matter where they are at in their respective careers, Dake owns him. I have come to accept this after years of denial.
  6. I might be overly optimistic, but I am taking his announcement as meaning we are anywhere but near the twilight of his career. We had all been assuming he hangs it up at the end of this Olympic cycle and now it looks like he is going to be around for another (at least). He is arguably our country's greatest freestyle wrestler and he just keeps going. That is awesome. Who knows how long he keeps at it and is in the mix for golds. Dake's recent comments about his aging stoked the fire.
  7. He's gonna go another Olympic cycle? Dake's not happy.
  8. The Harvard wrestling team will be practicing in the fall semester when all classes are online? That would be interesting.
  9. Does this basically mean Ivy League wrestling will not seriously compete this coming academic year. How are they going to be competitive come March if they can't get on the mat until January?
  10. Masvidal is training areas besides wrestling with other partners/coaches of course. Bo helps with the wrestling . . . and probably some boxer helps with striking, jiu jitsu black belt helps with submissions, etc.
  11. These were my favorite NCAA finals, mostly because I as in attendance but also due to the great matches, most notably Metcalf/Caldwell. Also a great team races that wasn't decided until Herbert beat Pucillo at 184 -- most expected the race to be over with a Metcalf victory at 149.
  12. The interesting thing to me is that there are reasonably convincing arguments for all 5 of these guys (Retherford, Taylor, Nickal, Ruth and Nolf) to be be considered PSUs "best ever" and, if one or two moves had different results in any of their careers, that could change that person to an undeniable "greatest." I will go with Nickal as the greatest because he had no lapses (that I can recall, and I don't consider getting put on his back against Martin in the finals his junior year a lapse) in his last two years. I believe all the knocks against him are from his freshman and sophomore year. I guess Retherford is about the same but Nickal just seemed ever so slightly more dominant.
  13. Speaking of Ryan Lang, what about Drew Pariano? Or Tony Pariano?
