  1. May I ask where you are getting these #s from? Not saying they are wrong but you are acting like it's common knowledge and this is the first most of us have heard of this. I don't remember any articles/discussions about RTC salaries but maybe I missed it.
  2. Look forward to this every year, and you never disappoint. Thank you, and your review probably has me thinking I was likely a little too down on the Illini going into this year. Not a ton of holes, though not a ton of world beaters. Should be a better dual team than tourney...
  3. Right, but they keep doing these lotteries or whatever like they did this week - maybe the third of its kind? I don't know anyone who has actually gotten in and was able to buy wrestling tickets.
  4. That Cosport site was putting you in the queue before it started, then kicking you out, the main page didn't load, etc. And when we tried to get in the minute it started we were thousands of people of ahead of us. Needless to say like the other one we got nowhere. I know there simply are more people who want to go than tickets but there has to be a better way than this god awful Cosport site where you are pretty much doomed from the beginning and have no chance. Let me ask - did anyone actually get wrestling tix via any of these cosport website purchase windows?
  5. Gwiz trains there occasionally as well and is chaired by Cunningham at foreign tourneys from time to time. Ups the NCAA/medal count...
  6. What can some of the gurus and old timers tell us about Cuestas, Stewart and Tom Martucci? Those are the three names on there I don't really know anything about.
  7. Cool idea - one period greco, one period free: https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2019/October/10/Martinez-v-Bey-headlines-Illinois-RTC-card-at-Casino-Night-fundraiser
  8. Do we know he isn't? Last time I read he's still off the team as the investigation isn't officially over.
  9. And crazy to think he wasn't even the starter on his team at the beginning of the year.
  10. A la Maurice Clarett, getting his Goose on!
  11. Nailed it perfectly nerd, good gravy wrestling fans complain about anything. It was a fun exhibition match in an extensive and enjoyable card, something a little different in a laid back event. Flo tried to get Spencer Lee and Iowa compliance shut it down for some reason. Downey and Rodriguez took this on a week's notice and got a little discussion going in non-wrestling circles. Probably not a ton, but who cares?
  12. So Massa has been injured for 2+ years now? Not being a smart alec, legitimate question.
  13. I really think going Decatur at 133 with Pletch at 141 Hayes 149 and Sasso 157 is the best lineup. Sure Pletch at 133, Hayes at 141 and Sasso at 149 all look great on paper but I think all three would really struggle with the weight. Hayes is on record saying 149 is best for him, Pletch looked great at 143 this offseason and Willie mentioned Sasso had issues getting down to 154 on a recent FRL. While the ceiling is highest with them all at lower weights, I think the weight cut would adversely affect all of them by March. Focus on the wrestling and not the weight cutting.
  14. That dude was a straight up moose, how much weight was Downey giving up?
