  1. Here we go again. Thought I had tickets reserved but the information didn't get passed down the line. Any information is greatly appreciated. Please post here or email shumatejoe@yahoo.com. Thanks.
  2. Thanks for asking this question. As I've stated before, the general perception, in all sports, it seems, is that, anything less than D1 equals a failure. If you're a kid who competes in one of the "lower" levels of collegiate wrestling, you weren't/ aren't good enough to compete in D1, with the occassional exception. I find this perception to be way off base. During the whole "Save Olympic Wrestling" movement, which I was an adamant supporter of, the thought kept entering my mind. We have to change our way of thinking domestically.
  3. Thanks for posting this. Great read. Believe it or not, I swear I think I have the Sea World dual he mentioned on VHS in my basement.
  4. It was bound to happen, so I'll say it. Why not give both jobs, Navy and WVU, simultaneously, to Gene Smith. I mean, look what the guy has done with Steiber!
  5. They're out there. I stayed home and watched on tv last year because I couldn't firm up the tickets I wanted. The year before, I had an extra lower level ticket that I ultimately sold via this forum. It took some convincing, however, because potential buyers thought I was scamming them. Sign of the times, I suppose. I have never had so much trouble procuring anything else in my life. Fair product for a fair price is all I'm looking for. Otherwise, it's just me, my couch, and ESPN again this year.
  6. If anyone hears about LOWER LEVEL seats becoming available and/or rooms please post here or email at shumatejoe@yahoo.com. Thanks.
  7. This just popped up on twitter http://m.soonersports.com/mobile/ViewAr ... M_ID=31000
  8. Fleeing is the right call in high school + 5 million. I can't understand why such a call is no longer a possibility in college. I suppose that officiating at any level has become so wildly inconsistent that it was removed to prevent the official's judgement from coming into play in that situation.
  9. Very disappointed that Atlanta is not on the D1 list. Can't believe it, actually.
  10. Is there a coaches clinic attached to this year's dual?
  11. Here's where I found it. http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/ ... m-20130926
  12. Make no mistake. There are more inept coaches at the H.S. and college level in the U.S., and, I would bet, worldwide, that think they are doing the right thing. Despite the decision to include wrestling in the two Olymipic cycles past next year, we're in trouble. If we don't decide to stop appreciating the talent over the work, we're done, and rightfully so. Adapt? Yes. Complaceny, No!
  13. Great thread. I'm glad this discussion is taking place.
  14. Brings to mind Sanderson and Heskett...
