  1. A very tough off season to say the least. Elbow surgery, two very tragic deaths to deal with and his coach getting fired. If you know him you know that he is a very kind hear-ted young man who needs time to heal emotionally, and in this case physically as well. He is tough, very tough but he's human as well. Give him time and he will be just fine.
  2. Perry seems to be a good young assistant coach and that's it at this point. Heffernan runs the show, and does so very well. Illinois staff is a very good one. Their program is solid and that is credit to Heffernan. VT and Missouri are model programs with great head coaches.
  3. I agree that stalling should called more aggressively in some situations. However I am not in favor of any amounts of time factoring in to the decision. An official who does the BIG10 tournament should be savy, experienced, what ever you want to call it to recognize stalling and have the balls to do so. Take the match between Tsirtsis and Sorenson for example, boring match to some, not much offense. At least Tsirtsis attempted to score, boots scoots, shots (a few) head snaps. Sorenson didn't attempt anything. The ref should have dinged him early in the match. Truthfully though no ones wants the Iowa staff breathing all over their knuckles so nothing gets called. Shameful!
  4. I like Reviver's style but doubt seriously if womens wrestling will help add programs at the D1 level. Also please elaborate on how Washington D.C. is keeping wrestling out of the South.
  5. Is there a limit to the number of wrestlers who can weigh in and dress for a college dual? Why not weigh in and dress the entire team? Everyone warms up, everyone sits on the bench and gets ready to wrestle as if they were going on the mat. Surely NW could of put a wrestler on the mat at 157 if the whole team was dressed. I know that some are red-shirting so maybe they cant weigh in. Its absurd to come from Eastern PA and wrestle 8 matches against a nationally ranked team. Put someone on the mat even of they are undersized put them on the mat. I don't know the inside scoop on NW's guys but I dont think there is any reason to forfeit a match at the D1 level. Can you imagine if the baseball team at NW decided to play only 8 guys in the field? The basketball teams dresses all their eligible guys and some time they play out of position, wrestling should do the same. Shame on you Pariano, hopefuly you can coach and run a program as well as you recruit.
  6. He will be just fine, wait and see.
  7. Pretty sure that I know how writes as Kentucky Mudflap, but I am sworn to secrecy. Beside that would be a little like finding out that there is no Santa Claus. Better left unknown. Little hint however... according to my very reliable sources it is a former Hawkeye assistant still close to the program but coaching else where on the collegiate level. Bam... figure it out!
  8. Yes sir that is quite an accomplishment on his part. Sometimes we forget that there is a lot more to the story than meets the eye. All the Indiana locals who have called Cashe a failure and blamed Purdue wrestling and the staff for his lack of progress need to back up and redefine success.
  9. The guy must really dislike college coaching if he would consider being the national Greco coach. I personally would rather have a good high school job than the Greco job!

    Howe

    Howe got ridden for an entire period in the Big 12 finals and then again in the national finals. Shame on Howe and shame on OU's coaches. Howe did not do one thing to counter Perry's leg ride. He should have worked every day between the two meets to counter that ride. Howe looked like a high school kid with a bad coach at time trying to get away from Perry. Spending the last couple of years at OU did not improve Howe's technical abilities at all.
  11. I had an opportunity to sit by the future Mrs. Maple at a tourney a couple of years ago. I also got to see how she responded when a group of fans also sitting close cheered against Maple. A very classy young lady and at the risk of sounding like Brent Musberger she is extremely good looking. Congratulations Kendrick Maple on a great career.

  13. What a fantastic event! The crowd (10,000 +), The venue, the presentation, the city, and of course the wrestling! It was a great weekend of wrestling, as good as some national tournaments. Watching Tom Brands coach his guys is worth the price of admission!
  14. Nice analysis Pinnum. Some very valid points and reasons that the Scuffle may be more attractive to a college team.
