  1. Thank you, I just wanted a damn answer of yes or no. Past the recent greats knowing when random guys wrestled is way beyond my New Jersey knowledge. It is mindboggling that there have only been four 4xers in New Jersey and it only happened recently.
  2. Are you so dense that you literally refuse to read what I'm stating? In looking for information on the 4x finalists I found some good information on Jersey Wrestling's Rokfin page ranking the best wrestlers of each decade. For the 1980's none of the top wrestlers had placed four times out of 135 wrestlers he ranked. That lead me to the conclusion that there was a POSSIBILITY of athletes only having only three years of eligibility. Hence that is why I politely ASKED for clarification and even noted on the data that it was not complete.
  3. PER THE INFORMATION I FOUND, DURING THE 1980'S ON "JERSEY WRESTLING'S" ROKFIN PAGE WRESTLERS ALL HAD THREE PLACINGS AND NONE HAD 4. GUYS LIKE JOE MELCHIORE AND JOHN BARNA WON THREE TITLES. THROUGH THE LIST OF 135 ATHLETES NONE PLACED FOUR TIMES. ON TOP OF THAT IN THE 1970'S AT LEAST ONE ATHLETE(LOU DURANT) PLACED FOUR TIMES. AS STATED HERE, I AM LOOKING FOR THE CORRECT INFORMATION SINCE IT LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT ATHLETES COULD ONLY PARTICIPATE IN THREE STATE TOURNAMENTS.
  4. That really won't do much for Michigan's average... very surprised by the lack of even All-Americans from four-timers in Michigan.
  5. 3 chances at a state title Per Jersey Wrestling's Rofkin page, his best wrestlers of the 80's only had 3 placings, no one had 4.
  6. On 4-timers alone New Jersey is 2 for 4. I'm still trying to find the data on the 1970's and 1980's. From what I have seen it looks like there were only three chances at a title in the 1980's. More information would be greatly appreciated if you have it.
  7. Putting together some data, if you know of a place to get it for your state, send it to me. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sCcESZRzBobVFbeJlkmYCtBAxZ2b0eVadBydOsDRtE8/edit?usp=sharing *Thanks to the guy who does not like Republicans @JasonBryant's Almanac it has made it a lot easier to verify NCAA placings.
  8. You're not wrong, however that is the nature of anything in life. Too many wrestling people want everything for free and for many years most everything was free. I remember back when the only site that charged was Intermat. Some of the business models we have can limit our exposure. For instance, the Flo model is basically a cash grab in that you have to pay for a full year and there are technically no monthly or single event options(FYI you can go to another vertical to get monthly options and get wrestling content). That type of model hurts the people who want to watch a single event like Super 32, Ironman, etc and not pay $150 for it. The TrackWrestling model of having an option for MANY events(Gold+) or being able to buy a single event is great. The casual fans are who we hurt with poor business models such as these. Grandma and grandpa, uncle Joe, etc aren't going to shell out $150 to watch Billy at the Super 32 or Fargo. They might shell out $15 or $20 though. The news sites aren't really for the fringe wrestling fans, sites like Rokfin, Intermat, TOM, etc. are there for the hardcore fans that want to consume an insane amount of content.
  9. Luckily a lot of lobbyists have made my life easy these days as I have subscriptions to Flo, Track, TOM, Intermat, and Rokfin. Flo- I have canceled my subscription, however will likely pick it up for Fargo. Their content is getting stale and their personalities can be very abrasive at times. I'll either take advantage of their 20% off offer(after I canceled they offered this) or go through one of their other platforms for a monthly subscription. Track- Lots of events on their Gold+ plan along with the text updates. Text updates are nice when you want to follow, but also have a life. TOM- They are still getting a lot of content published with the new hire. If I were to cut one they would be high on the list as I can't read everything. Intermat- Greatly increased content even in the off-season. Hopefully it continues. Rokfin- It is nice, but a little cumbersome to really consume a lot of content on there. I wish there was a Facebook/Twitter type feed with the new content so we could easily see the new stuff being posted. At the end of the day paying the money for these things is good for the sport. People promoting the sport and earning a living off of it is GREAT. Keep in mind when you complain about prices, money drives everything. Too many people want everything for free in wrestling and that is not sustainable.
  10. Great work! Crazy to think only two wrestlers outside the top 100 were All-Americans with a few having a shot this next year.
  11. The main reason we went was we knew none of our guys would get contact traced if they were on the mat less than 2 minutes.

    What if a program "needs" a recruiting coordinator, travel coordinator, AND a gear coordinator?
  13. Someone is looking for a raise at Cornell. Koll loves to interview elsewhere to get more money from Cornell.
