    Coach_J reacted to Chuck Schick in Finley   
    I do find it delicious that when Oregon dropped wrestling for baseball and competitive cheer they hired away the best coach Nike's money could buy and built a state-of-the-art baseball stadium with plans on future stadium expansion. The Oregon website says the stadium is designed to quickly make Oregon a regular fixture on the "Road to Omaha". Well, 6 years in and Oregon is a bad Pac-12 team that hasn't sniffed Omaha and ranks between #40-50 in attendance. None of these realities will bring wrestling back, but I'm happy that the mostly empty ballpark named for the AD that orchestrated the death of the wrestling program is home to a crap team.

    No one gets more out of their limited talent pool and resources than Cuba (baseball, boxing, and wrestling all amazing from a tiny, isolated, and leadership deprived nation).

    Michigan State overperformed.  They were expected to be bad, but to gun it through to a negative point total far exceeded expectations of pure awefulness.  The program continues to amaze....

    Click on your name at the top right of the browser window. In the dropdown, select "Manage Ignore Prefs". Add the poster's name to the list to be ignored. Presto! Your blood pressure will immediately drop 50 points and your IQ will rise by an equal measure.

    The coach's job in that scenario, knowing the score is wrong, is to not sit down until the scorer has confirmed the sequence of points.  Period.  If he has to throw a tantrum or get yelled at by ref, no matter.  Make sure the score is correct no matter what.  And after the match ends, file a protest and don't allow your kid to leave the mat until the matter is addressed.  Head coach, ref and side official, scorer, and NCAA bureaucrats all share blame.

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Mo last night.  Was great talking about the wrestling days.  The interview will be published on 49 North Wrestling in the near future.  I also had the pleasure of interviewing Dan Severn about a month ago as well.  Interview is posted on 49 North.

    The problem is not so much the newest rules as the fact that they are never constant. The athletes and coaches must be losing their minds. There are no perfect Greco rules and in an endless quest to find some UWW screws with everyone's enjoyment of the sport.

    I'd go a step further and get rid of the MSU Athletic Director, too.  He is clearly not paying attention to all the programs under his watch.  Basketball and football is not enough.

    Correct.  Unfortunate situation and I don't blame Adrassy for not keeping track of the score.  Crazy match and NCAA ultimately is to blame.  But his "whoa is me I tried to check the score" explanation doesn't quite fly either because if he was on top of the score he never lets the match continue and never lets miller walk away.

    Mike Disabato.  Haha, I remember this guy.  We had him for a camp counselor at OSU. What an idiot.  He tried those strong arm tactics with the guys on my floor at camp. He got to the point where he took us out at midnight to condition us bc we were talking in our rooms.  He said he would run us until we quit the camp. Two and a half hours later, he gave up and walked inside.  After that, we basically hazed the heck out of him for the rest of camp.  Not very mature by us, but it was so much fun almost bringing that guy to tears.  Big bully with no stones. On the other hand, his brother Adam is one of the coolest people I met there. Cannot believe those two are related.

    There were live feeds buried in these forums here as well as Flo.
     
    As far as Taylor, (only saw the second period against Tsargush) I don't know, sort of surprised, not sort of surprised. Was definitely anticipating a higher place, but then again, it was 2 different World champs. If anything else, DT got a bracket full of tough international competition today.
     
    The Champ is the favorite come Trials, but 74 is still gonna be fun with DT, KD (hope Dake's 100% by then), Howe and now Dierenger in the field.
     
    I like all above mentioned wrestlers, but I would love to see JB beat Tsargush in the finals and get his belt back.
