  1. As someone who grew up wanting to be the next John Fisher during my eight years of Dale Bahr Michigan wrestling camps, the Rechsteiners wrestled for the Wolverines. If it weren't for Rico Chiparelli and Duane Goldman in competition and Kirk Trost in the room who knows what could have been. He did pin Greg Wojciechowski. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB5_5k0AeaI
  2. Greg is still a great supporter of wrestling. For several years he came to the Funny Bone on Columbus, Ohio to headline Ohio RTC fundraisers as well as having several public shows while in town. I watched one of his specials on Comedy Central prior to his first appearance and enjoyed, but I found him funniest when speaking to the wrestling audience because of all the material and spots he worked in that were wrestling specific. Over multiple years, he always worked new wrestling material in with some of his greatest hits from the years before. Pretty sure Warren and Michael Symon both made donations to the Wrestle Against Autism tournament in central Ohio as well as events put on by Wrestlers in Business, Notre Dame College, Cleveland State, and NEO RTC I have attended. As others were speaking of Michigan Men, Steve Luke attended grad school to be a pharmacist and was interested in working in a hospital setting while completing his residency. Lost track of him the last couple of years but have no doubt he has found success wherever he has landed.
  3. Drew Lashaway pinned defending and eventual champ J Jaggers their senior years in the Ohio State vs Kent State dual.
  4. Nick Simmons length gave him Reed Richards-like strangulation powers back in the day
  5. I like what Bob Dole says but the problem with that is that they will continue to spend as much money or more on everything else related to football. I don't see as much of a cost savings but more so a better distribution of talent with the reduction of 25 athletes from the power 5 to the group of 5 given that men's football and basketball scholarships can't be split or partial like all other sports. As tranfer regulations have continually been less restrictive this millenium, we have seen more movement in the last 20 years than the entire 20th century so we probably see as much movement in football as we do in basketball,

  7. Surprised no one has mentioned Jake Herbert yet. He was all attitude at Northwestern after Askren graduated and then followed with the stache and a beautiful mullet, the Ron Burgundy look at the Midlands, BaBa Booey-ing at the Olympics, a variety of media adventures, and all of the stories people have heard that aren't for public consumption.
  8. If a state high school athletic association sponsors a sport then a state college in that state should also sponsor that sport.
  9. He does and has three children. I read that Joe had succesful surgery yesterday to relieve the swelling on his brain and has returned to the ICU. Great wrestleer and coach but a better person and father.
  10. Saw on facebook after a few calls this afternoon that Joe Heskett had a stroke while sleeping yesterday and is in stable condition but very serious condition in ICU. I am not a doctor or family member so I know nothing other than what I read. His uncle has provided some updates to people sending well wishes on Joe's facebook page. I do know as his friend, he and his family would appreciate all the positive thoughts and prayers the community can offer.
  11. President Trump stated “anyone who wants a test can get a test.” Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Donald
  12. I think people underestimate the size and scope of the Arnold Classic. Last year at the Arnold there were approx 20,000 athletes from over 75 countries (many of whom are fresh off the boat). Combined with competitors from all 50 states and an attendence over 200,000 for at least the last five years, and you have a petri dish in the heart of Ohio. Putting the Arnold in context, no event in central Ohio brings in more international attendees or competitors than the Arnold and only Ohio State football (8 home games), OSU basketball (20+ home games), NHL Blue Jackets (40+ home games) bring in more attendees and revenue with the Arnold ahead of the MLS Crew, AAA MLBB Clippers, and the Gay Mens SB World Series Columbus has long embraced the cow town monicker but with 2.100,000 in the metro area that is more people in Central, Ohio alone than the population of the entire states of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Delaware, and more than the states with more than a 1,00,000 residents of Rhode Island, Montana, Maine, New Hampshire, Hawaii, West virginia, Idaho, Nebraska, and New Mexico. I am not ready to shut down the city/state/country over fears, but I think the Arnold is taking appropriate level of precaution given where their competitors come from and the size, scope, and origin of the fans walking through the doors. While the vast majority of the athletes at The Arnold are healthy, the potential is there to become a hot spot for transmission without restrictions or precautions
  13. Reece Humphrey went 0-2 in 2006 losing to two unseeded wrestlers that went 1-2 at 133 pounds. He redshirted in 2007 then went round of 12 in 2008 and second in 2009 at 133 and third at 141 in 2010. Looking back with a win over Franklin Gomez (lost in OT) or Mike Grey (final td in a scramble) he is probably a low AA as a sophomore, lost by a point in the finals to Gomez as a junior, and essentially wrestled a finals match in the semis against Dake and lost a could of, would of, should of in OT as a senior. Post college he was a three time national champion and a three-time world team member over a 5-6 year period.
  14. Good Luck, sorry this board does not get the traffic that others do but I will offer a few suggestions. 1. Reach out to local HS/JH/MS coaches to see if you can get a referal 2. Research USA wrestling state/national website to find list of sanctioned clubs in your area. 3. Research NUway wrestling state/national website to find list of sanctioned clubs in your area. 4. Find a youth tournament in your area, show up, ask questions, make friends. Equipment - Wrestling shoes, mouthpiece, headgear. You already have shorts, sweats, and t's you can use General - Learning, skill development, and fun trump tournaments when just starting out
