  1. It was great being able to bet on wrestling in the Olmpics. Does anyone know if we will be able to bet on the Worlds?
  2. Looking at who's registered, every weight is loaded. How many per weight qualify for the OTT?
  3. Who gets a bye to the OTT finals on Sat night? Is it just JB and Snyder? I thought I saw somewhere that Dake goes straight to the semis??? Where does DT go in his bracket? These trials are going to be unbelievable.
  4. Is anyone else having trouble on the Ticketmaster site? I click on the blue button "see tickets" and as the next page is loading, the site kicks me to another webpage to buy ACC men's basketball tickets.
  5. Thanks for this info. This is exactly what I was looking for.
  6. The language "A limited number of spectators will be permitted." makes me nervous that I won't be able to attend. Dickies Arena seats 14,000. Does anyone know the capacity regulations in Texas? Will tey allow 50% capacity? 25%?
  7. Are fans allowed at Univ of Wisconsin home dual meets?
  8. I use this one (I think this is the same brand). It works extremly well. It is very loud and it has three different whistle sounds. https://www.amazon.com/Windsor-Three-Tone-Electronic-Whistle/dp/B0019MBJGW/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=hand+whistle&qid=1607454798&sr=8-8
  9. Maybe someone with some IOC inside knowledge can answer my question: Why did the IOC cut weights for wrestling and then turn around and ADD sports to the Oly program? And why are they restricting the athlete quota to a strict number, not just for wrestling but overall for all sports? Wasn't softball and I think baseball dropped in the past becasue they were not sports that were played in a lot of countries (I know both are in the 2021 program)? If a sport is only played in a small % of countries by a small % of people, it should not be an Olympic sport. I really have no problem with the IOC adding sports, provided they are sports that most countries do, etc. I obviouslly have a huge issue with the IOC cutting our weight classes AND our overall # of competitiors, but then adding other sports. But breakdancing?!?!?! I'd like to see a chart that breaks down each Olympic sport by # of countries that offer the sport and total # of worldwide participants. When does UWW say to the IOC enough is enough? How much more can the IOC cut from wrestling before we say being in the Oly program is not worth it? From Flo's article from today: Skateboarding, sport climbing, surfing and breaking confirmed as additional sports based on a proposal by Paris 2024. Breaking will make its Olympic debut. Reduction in the overall athlete quota (including all new sports) to exactly 10,500. Reduction in the overall number of events, with a final programme of 329 events.
  10. If I miised a previous post, I apologize. Does anyone know what Mark Hall has been up to? I hope he continues to compete.
  11. So it will be three days instead of the original two in 2020? Thanks for the responses to my original post.
  12. Does anyone have any inside info on when the OTT will be? Since Tokyo was pushed back exactly one year, I assume the trials would be on the same first weekend in April like in 2020. I emailed the BJC and they got right back to me that they do not have any info at this time. I was hoping someone on this board would have some inside info. And, maybe this is a question for the Pennsylvana Dept of Public Health, but will spectators be allowed? Any info would be appreciated!
  13. Two more: Dustin DeNunzio (thanks again to Wrestling Changed My Life podcast) Mark Munoz
  14. Hey fellow forum members, happy quarantine day whatever! I am hoping your collective knowledge can help me with something here. I am a kids' club coach and we take a different philosophy on the development of our wrestlers. In short, we develop our wrestlers at a far slower, more patient pace. That said, I love using examples of Div 1 all-Americans who did NOT start wrestling until high school. These athletes are excellent examples to use when trying to explain our club's philosophy to parents and athletes. If you know of any wrestlers, please respond to this thread and post their name, school, and year(s) when they became all-Americans. Feel free to tell a short story about them if you have one. Here are two to kick off the thread: Steve Marianetti began wrestling as a freshman in high school Brian Picklo began wrestling as a junior in high school (thank you to Wrestling Changed My Life podcast!) Altho he never became an all-American, I think what Jamill Kelly did in 2004 is an even better story.
