    Hey Bud....You should be ashamed of yourself.  It's no choice. And you're the "morality" police, too?   Don't you want your friends, family members and fellow wrestlers to be "happy"?   Do you really care who another person falls in love with?   Amazing...

    Hush 4444. Don't speak for someone else. I have a member of my family that is homosexual. I am 100% positive he did not CHOOSE to be that way.

    Exactly my thinking. Not only is the sport stigmatized, but there are many individuals within the sport who resent homosexuals for that reason.
    Pucillo is a badass for sticking with the sport and doing so well. Good story.

    “Why would someone choose a life that is completely ridiculed their entire life? To me, people can’t wrap their head around that, there’s no point in me trying to talk to them. I’m not going to change the way their mind thinks,” said Pucillo.

    I think Illinois does a better job of getting it's best wrestlers to the national competitions in freestyle and greco. Also they have a good coaching staff that's been in charge since Illinois began dominating at freestyle and greco. John Kading has been the head freestyle coach for about 7-8 years now. He was at Overtime Club and last year became the head coach at Chicago Mt. Carmel.
    I've been to all the Junior National Duals since 2008. Oklahoma (host state) and Illinois usually have their best kids wrestling in the duals. Minnesota also does an excellent job. California, Ohio, and PA overall have better talent, but doesn't get as many of them in the national cadet and junior national duals and to Fargo. That is why the Illinois success in freestyle isn't translating to success in collegiate folkstyle.

    Max has been planning to join his father and brother in the military this next year.  
    I don't know if he's completely ruled out the possibility of changing his mind and going for the sixth year, (obviously I would love for it to happen) but wouldn't count on it.  He has to do what's best for him.

    LOL!  Well, it's pretty easy to just skip over 'em or simply put me on ignore.  I suggested that to you before, so it's really your problem if you continue to subject yourself to material you find boring - not mine.

    It is inappropriate conduct for the defensive wrestler to touch either or both hands or one knee to the mat in order to release the offensive wrestler’s lock, and the referee shall not call a violation if the lock is held in such cases.

    Wow, Logie is actually a month older than Dake. I don't think that affects Logie's accomplishment one bit, but it does make me respect Dake's even more.

    I'm just going to react to the title of this thread.  Would it be better if he totally dropped the ball like the Kent State coaches?  He did what a coach is supposed to do.

    I would like to give a small shoutout to Mitchell Port.  I was watching yesterday and after the 141 final espn pulled stieber to the side to interview him and Port walked right behind looking completely devestated walking back to the tunnel.
     I was so caught up in all the 4xer hype and was so sure that Stieber was going to win that I forgot there was another immensely talented guy who put his heart and soul into this sport, and came so close to the top multiple years in a row (and probably wouldve been a champ if not for this phenom) only to fall short (in his eyes, certainly not mine).  
    He and all the other wrestlers who competed this week and didn't fully realize their goals should walk with their heads way up.  I applaud you mitchell port thanks for giving us years of truly great, great wrestling.  I wish you the best of luck and hope you aren't hanging up your shoes for good.

    Coach_J got a reaction from Alexander_Delarge_655321 in The six (and only six) things you can say about Miller v. Realbuto   
    I don't see a point in a re-wrestle--at the end of regulation, the correct score was Miller 10, Realbuto 9.
    The Kent coaches should have gone to the head table and demanded the ref consult the score keeper before OT began.  This is very common--the ref consults the scorekeeper and tracks the progression of points to make sure everything is logical.  If the ref made the KSU staff sit down without a review, they should have raised the flag for an official protest.  Also, a competent ref would have gone to the table for a quick clarification of score before starting the OT and a competent scorekeeper would have spoken up.
    If Koll truly didn't know the score was wrong, he has no culpability.
    The wrestlers did their jobs and it was a helluva match.   Too many others did not, however.
