  1. I've banned myself from these forums but I thought some of the CU fans might enjoy these pictures. It might shed some light as to whether Dake is stalling or not with the half ride. It looks to me like he is throwing Taylor to his neck/back each time. At any, I apologize for my rude entry and now humbly exit. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 988&type=1
  2. I formally resign from this forum never to be heard from again. Take care. I am sorry if any of my "snarky" posts unsettled the water for you. God Bless!
  3. Agreed. I have no issue with PSU - they are number one and in terms of the national tourney, most teams are going to fall behind. Hard to argue with their success or any of their wrestlers. I do have issues with Lehigh as I find their style brutal to watch. In addition, I continually hear how the program is turning the corner. Of course it has turned the corner. However, they continue to stumble pretty hard from time to time and take steps back too. I am guessing many of my comments about LU are negative. So what.
  4. Well I guess losing to Harvard should be taken as a grain of salt except LU is losing Welsh and Hamlin and after that who knows what happens. If the goal is to manage a top 20 program than Santoro has succeeded. He has also put out one of the most boring product on the mat possible. Before anyone fires back on their incoming class, I would simply say being a good recruit on paper does not = top 10 program.
  5. Now getting taking out by other Ivies. It's great time to be Lehigh fan!
  6. Beckman lost period. Adjusting your headgear or fixing your contact it all counts. We'll see next year who is better but keep in mind Beckman has been wrestling D1 for a couple of years. Grey should be making progress and this result supports that conclusion. Since "you were there" I imagine you'd agree that getting caught fixing your headgear or whatever all counts.
  7. Anyone have any brackets or info on results?
  8. Anyone have any footage/interviews of Taylor's comments following his 3 losses to Dake?
  9. ok then you replied in the wrong thread. This is for Iowa fans.
  10. agreed. Hofstra looked very good. CU was ripe for the beating. Not sure what happened at heavy or why Villalonga makes weight for the second match but not Hofstra. Good to see Hofstra getting back on its feet again. They have a good recruiting base on the island if they can tap it.
  11. Taylor needed a pin as did Ruth. Both did not deliver.
  12. 2 years from now Ruth is gone and so is Taylor is too. They fall back to earth hard.
  13. OK I guess that is fair but if you watched the match, Dake fought like heck to pin his kid and it was pretty obvious Koll and Dake were none to happy about the TF based on their post match reaction.
  14. got it. forgot about this issue. Iowa is no longer "the top program" so I am not sure who cares as much now. If wrestling is to be successful, it will need to find it's way into mainstream markets outsude of dustbowls and into additional DMAs.
  15. I have no idea what that has to do with the OSU match.
  16. I am sure lots of teams would give their right arm to win this one by 33-9. Could have been worse for N.
  17. A very nice win on the road after a brutal flight. CU lost this bout as follows: Chris Villalonga gives up 8 pts in the third period for the major loss. Dake not getting a pin. Shanaman giving up a MD. And of course - Nick Arujua not making weight or wrestling competitively at 133. CU put out their 197 Lber instead of a heavy for some reason at heavy. I think they would have tied if they rolled out their heavy but OSU wins on criteria so Koll wsas probably hoping for a miracle. I know Lane is hurt but the other heavy wrestled yesterday. OSU wrestled very well - Mangrum was a beast and Meeks got a last second TD against George for the win. Two of their (165/125) should have been pinned but fought like hell and made it through.
  18. Welsh graduates this year as well. Napoli left with one more year. I understand their bad luck. Hopefully it comes around for them.
  19. I get it. They will lose Hamlin next year and replace him with AA Beckman. Outside of that, none of the names on the list are considered AAs if they enter today. I think these are some of the best recruits in the nation and they have as much talent pending as any team. It's what happens to the talent when it hits the mat that seems to be concerning.
  20. Agreed. I am a big CU fan but wrestling on the feet outside of the weights I mentioned was pretty minimal in terms of activity. I think at this pt, Dixon is wrestling better than Nick A who lost 2x to redshirt mark grey last week 8-1.
  21. Very familiar with their red shirts as well. A couple have already lost red-shirt status. Is their a red shirt coming that we think will AA? Beckman for sure - not sure after that. Not sure if I am correct but I think they lose Hamlin this year. I think Lehigh's issue has not been recruiting so much but they are not developing kids fast enough to keep up with the top 5-8 programs.
  22. can't recall when Lehigh's expectations were .500
  23. Lehigh continues to struggle in my book now 6-6 with some rough losses to Penn and others. I keep hearing how happy their fans are but I am not buying it. They still play stall ball and have not turned the corner in my estimation.
  24. Have not seen Penn wrestle this year so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say they wrestled pretty well and hard. I have seen CU this season and other than 133, 165 and Heavy, the rest was a boring display of a team that looked woeful on their feet and desparate to get to the mat. Since Penn rarely let them get to the mat on top, each match was very close. Nevinger looked terrible and while Cobb looks good, I think Nevinger's leg defense is shoddy at best. Bosak's match was bizaare as he pushed it in the first period and then did not score another point. Penn is steadily getting better and should be a perennial top 15 next year or so. I still think CU beats OSU unless OSU gets a pin at heavy.
