  1. I also think the spot at 157 is worth discussing... Ha! Yes I just figured that was a GIVEN...u r right. Dylan Alton vs James English vs Jimmy Vollrath vs Nick Fischer (maybe Matt Brown??? Heard he is a bit bigger now). My pick is English right now with Alton being close behind. Dylan is weighing in at 175 in the off season. Btw DT in the off season is up over 180.
  2. FWIW Just talked to a buddy coaching HS wrestling in PA. PSU was at his school & he got to talk to DT. So to confirm everything we already have been saying per DT he is going to 165 & Ed & Q are NOT bumping. So I guess we really can get onto discussing 141 & 197....
  3. McIntosh, Burkert named 2011 ASICS High School Wrestlers of the Year | TheMat.com - USA Wrestling Every year at the ASICS Junior National Championships, the ASICS High School Wrestlers of the Year are announced. This recognizes the top high school athlete in the nation, regardless of age level. This year’s recipients are Morgan McIntosh of California for boys and Jenna Burkert of New York for girls. McIntosh, a 2010 ASICS Junior Nationals champion, won three California state high school titles for Calvary Chapel High School. He was named the Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award winner on the national level by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, based upon athletic and academic achievement and community service. McIntosh is expected to compete this week at the ASICS/Vaughan Junior Nationals in freestyle. He will attend Penn State in the fall. Burkert was fourth at the 2011 U.S. Senior Open, and was a member of the 2010 Youth Olympic Games team. She won the FILA Junior Nationals title this spring and qualified for the Junior World Team at the Body Bar Nationals. Burkett attended Marquette High School in Michigan, where she is a member of the U.S. Olympic Education Center (USOEC) program. Burkett will not be competing this week at the ASICS/Vaughan Junior Nationals, as she is in her final week of training for the Junior World Championships which take place next week in Bucharest, Hungary. Burkert becomes only the second girl to win the award twice, joining California’s Tatiana Padilla who was honored in 2007 and 2008. No boy has ever won this award twice. The program began in 1986, when California’s Laurence Jackson was named as the first ASICS High School Boys Wrestler of the Year. With the growth of women’s wrestling, the first ASICS Girls High School Wrestler of the Year was recognized in 2001, with Toccara Montgomery of Ohio receiving the award. Looking back over the history of the program, the winners have gone on to achieve great things at the higher levels of wrestling. Olympic champion Henry Cejudo of Colorado was the 2006 boys winner. Others who have made Olympic teams for the United States include boys recipients Oscar Wood of Oregon, Cary Kolat of Pennsylvania, Joe Williams of Illinois and Steve Mocco of New Jersey and girls Toccara Montgomery of Ohio and Ali Bernard of Minnesota. World medalists who are past winners include girls Montgomery and Padilla, plus boys Kolat and Williams. Wrestlers who have won multiple NCAA Div. I titles included Kolat, Williams, Mocco and Damion Hahn of New Jersey. Others won an NCAA Div. I title were Alan Fried of Ohio, Jesse Jantzen of New York, Zach Esposito of New Jersey, Dustin Schlatter of Ohio and Troy Nickerson of New York. Future winners of this award may be competing this weekend in Fargo. A large majority of past winners have either won titles here or have been multiple All-Americans on the Junior or Cadet levels.

  5. Phil Davis Out of UFC 133 Main Event Due to Injury - MMAFrenzy.com Undefeated light heavyweight Phil Davis has been forced to withdraw from the UFC 133 main event against former champion Rashad Evans due to a knee injury “Mr. Wonderful” recently suffered less than a month before the August 6 pay-per-view event in Philadelphia. The news was first reported late Tuesday by MMAFighting. Davis (9-0) opened his UFC career with five straight victories, with his most recent win coming by unanimous decision over Antonio Rogerio Noguiera in March. Evans (15-1-1) has not seen Octagon action since defeating Quinton “Rampage” Jackson by unanimous decision at UFC 114 in May of last year. Lyoto Machida is rumored to be the front-runner to step in and rematch Evans at UFC 133, with the UFC is expected to announce Davis’ injury and the new main event for UFC 133 as soon as Tuesday night.

  7. MEDIA LINKS: July 9th, 2011 | Everything Penn State Wrestling Its the summer you're bored I have 31 media links to stuff about PSU wrestling & other wrestling stuff & a few not wrestling stuff but still good stuff... Um also per the Altoona (PA) Mirror 3 guys were busted for under-aged drinking (Fischer, Vollrath & Sherlock) with 4 unnamed "adults" busted for supplying alcohol to minors. Back in the day that was a right of passage, but I am pretty sure that won't sit well with the staff.
  8. FROM TIM OWEN @ BWI Confirmed: Derek Reber will transfer to Penn State Tim has been able to confirm with Derek Reber that he will transfer to Penn State from Bucknell. Reber, who has two years of eligibility remaining, is a 2009 national qualifier and a four-time PIAA ‘AA’ state place winner, including a state title in 2008. Reber has exclusively competed at the 125-pound weight class in college and will likely wrestle at 125 or 133 pounds for the Nittany Lions. If he remains at 125 pounds, he will join a stacked weight class that includes Frank Martellotti, Nate Morgan, Cameron Kelly, and newcomers Michael Waters, Jordan Conaway, and the nations top high school 125-pounder Nico Megaludis. (ADD Jimmy Gulibon to that MIX) After talking with Derek a little more, he says 133 pounds might be his best option, but he is also trying to add some muscle to possibly go 141 pounds. That might be the best option in order to earn a starting spot, but that is quite the jump from 125. Additionally, this will be a clean transfer, and he will not lose any eligibility.

  17. (Now back to our regularly scheduled program....which is already in progress...) ...Brad, first of all congratulations to you, on the team championship & a fine career at Penn State. Thanks! 1) Now, after this historic win, do you think that the team is going to have more pressure on them to repeat next season? Or are they going to be all “loosey-goosey” next year because they already won one? I think that they are going to be hungrier. I think as a team we are really loosey-goosey as it is. We like to have fun inside the wrestling room. Outside of the wrestling room we’re goofy. I think that it is just going to make us hungrier....MORE HERE: 20 Questions: Brad Pataky inteview
  18. Dan Gable gives Cael Sanderson more props than some other posters: “To go to Penn State and win it in two years was a real challenge and a very difficult reality,” said Dan Gable, the legendary Iowa head coach who name was associated with this award since retiring from the sport in 1997. “When you look how quickly coaches can develop people, it doesn’t usually happen that fast, especially with the young guys on a team.”

  23. Actually as the day has wore on & I have been back online a bit more I see what you are saying. I only had those ideas in the back of my head & didnt think that they were worth mentioning but now I see tha they are so I might go back & edit it. I actuaLLY DID SAY ON ANOTHER THREAD SOMEWHERE THAT IF iOWA DIDNT HAVE dsj GOING 165 THAT THEY WOULD HAVE EL DROPPING DOWN to battle at 165 with Kelly & Moore to make room for Evans at 174. (sorry abut the caps-on by accident-to lazy to re-type) I also read the Husker board a bit more & saw guys talking more about TC moving up to 74 to make room for Kokesh who had a stellar RS year. In any event having Caldwell & now Loupchanski in the Big Ten certainly makes the conference that much tougher. Thanks for the input.
  24. Willie you can always email me what you think is incorrect...
