  1. I believe there was a sticky post up where the legends post is on the forums that was alerting us that the forums would no longer be connected to usawrestlingnation.com.


    I think once you login to usawrestlingnation.com you have to login to the forums. My guess would be that they are no longer using the same database and you could probably get into an issue where you could change your password in one of the applications and it wouldn't propagate acrossed them both causing you to confuse passwords while when it was initiated you registered once and the database supplied both applications with the point data.


    Just a guess...


    I agree. Those having problems and using a bookmark, check the address and try pointing it toward:

    http://www.thematforums.com instead.

  2. ^^^I've known Robin Ficker for decades, here in Montgomery County, MD. It's my understanding that he attends and "cheerleads" at Univ of Maryland wrestling meets and certain away events, with the blessing of the UMD wrestling coaches. Also, please understand, that if the head wrestling coach at UMD did not approve of Robin Ficker's cheerleading, etc., Ficker would not be doing it and would not have special treatment, such as being an honorary coach at certain home events.


    I'm need to type this very carefully...


    As a former wrestler and now a fan I am entitled to my opinion and Ficker is not the type of fan I'd want to be around when I'm trying to watch a match. Also, if the UMD coaches not only approve, but encourage and reward his antics then I have less respect for them and their method of promoting their program. They're free to run it as they please but I'm just voicing my opinion.

  3. You think the Flicker type fan is really the messiah? I hope there's other options to make it fan friendly, if you think that's the issue. Honestly I'd say that type of behavior would drive fans away. I can't imagine the wrestling commercials featuring shots of people like Flicker actually generating a positive image.

  4. From what I remember of the rule is that the starting weight can be any weight as long as mutually agreed upon by the coaches. This allows them showcase a weight if they wish. If they can't mutually agree then the starting weight is drawn.


    If PSU wins 25 the momentum could help them so I see nothing wrong with Sanderson's thinking.

  5. The championship is decided currently by the tournament at the end of the season. So, PSU lost a dual meet the previous two years and then won the national championship. Who cares ? Does losing a dual meet diminish their accomplishment ? Under the current format, PSU is going for their 3rd straight national championship in March. I wouldn't mind seeing a format where there is a national duals champion and a national tournament team champion, but, that isn't where we are right now.


    There's always been a distinction drawn between a dual team and a tournament team regardless of a recognized NCAA championship. The weight of the distinction depends on who won where and when.

  6. In 79 or 80 I was wrestling a guy from Illinois who was head-butting and landing short swing upper cuts when we tied up.


    In the second or third period I had enough. I stepped back and hit him with a right hand body shot followed with a quick right cross that dropped him. I was dq'd. F him.


    And F those posting like Perry Mason. **** happens on the mat that screen shots, refs, and the crowd don't see.

  7. Amusing DJ.


    If the referee feels justified to lay on the wrestler at the end of the match like an MMA bout then he should also feel the need to take some affirmative disciplinary action against him. The wrestler should have better self-control but the referees in charge of keeping control on the mat. I see this ref failed to do his job.
