  1. Johnny, Good blog! You missed one from 1988. Pat Johannes, NDSU was 7th at 177. His teammate Matt Palmer also won a couple matches at 190 that year.
  2. More information about the Gopher Wrestling Gala. This is a fund raiser for improving wrestling facilities including a renovated locker room. https://www.mygophersports.com/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=wrestling-gala18&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::context_id=
  3. About like OJ's search for Nicole's killer.
  4. It's amazing how much bigger people have gotten in 100 years. Hwt is over 175 lbs. Hard to imagine someone weighing in the 170's wrestling a modern Hwt.
  5. Looking forward to the season. A couple of thoughts...Of the 4 guys moving up, I think McKee will benefit the most. I think Lizak will benefit physically also, but he is moving to a tougher weight, so it will be interesting. Webster did not wrestle at all second semester due to injury, so that's why he didn't qualify. They will have a very well balanced lineup and be a good dual team, but will need some that have not AA'd yet to step up and do so if they are going to be top 5.
  6. Seems like it was a combination of different philosophy of how practices were run, combined with a physical altercation with another staff member.
  7. Plus Jden could train athletes to sweat profusely when needed.
  8. Minnesota also has two time U23 world team member, Mitch McKee, who would be in his prime in 2024 @ 65 kg.
  9. Yikes, can you imagine them after a few shots. Probably pick a fight with a tree.
  10. These might clear things up, or not. https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.nhsca.com/resource/resmgr/2018_nd_pools_day_2/2018_nd_day_3/wave_1_hs.pdf http://teamduals.gimpsoftware.com/2018__NHSCADuals_HS_10.htm
  11. Eggum working the free agent market to go along with a great draft.
  12. Skatzka had been pretty solid but not spectacular his first two years. Had a bad NCAA tournament last year.
  13. Garrett Lowney won a bronze in Greco at the 2000 Olympics before ever starting for the Gophers (redshirted behind Brock Lesnar). Jake Deitchler made the Greco team in 2008, the summer after graduating high school.
  14. Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders) Spencer Lee
  15. Austin Emerson out of Michigan seems to be their hwt recruit. Agree that 20 at 160 is way low for Robb.
  16. Coach Eggum talks about coaching changes and recruits. http://kstp.com/sports/eggum-eager-for-next-gophers-wrestling-season/4896610/?cat=81
  17. I think his lack of foot speed hurt him more than those other attributes.
  18. You can think he weighs whatever you want, but that doesn't change the fact that he is under 260.
