    Coon

    Agree, he was a freshman in a very deep field. At the B1G Tens he lost to Gingrich and Tavanello but qualified by finishing 9th. At NCAA's he didn't place in a field with Gwiz, Nelson, McMullen, Telford, McClure, Chalfant, Johnson, and Marsden. He lost to Telford and Johnson. The following year when he was runner-up he had a 2-1 victory in the qtrs and a SV in the semi's.
  2. Also, Cael is 4-7 vs Iowa and 3-6-1 vs Minny.

    Waters down the field. I thought that the thread title made that obvious.

    Mekhi announces olympic redshirt

    Do away with Olympic redshirts. They are ruining college wrestling which is a hundred times more important that international competition.

    Free vs Folk - The great compromise!

    Better yet, let's modify the rules of freestyle so that we can become notably better at folk style.

    Teasdale Interview

    Teasdale's Flo comment "I need a hands-on type of coach that’s there for you through the thick and thin, and that cares about you not just on the mat but cares about you as a man." seems to typify Sanderson's selfishness. You may remember that Cael killed the National Duals because his career dual record of 14-16-1 versus the Big Three (Minny, Iowa, Okie St) revealed a fatal coaching flaw.

    Penn State’s Next Transcendent Guy(s)

    Maybe Cael is just a flash in the pan.
  15. Here is KJ explaining Cael's success: "He’s not showing any more special technique than anyone else. But, his ability to recruit the very best kids in the country to his program..." "the biggest thing that I’m impressed with that he hasn’t missed on too many of those blue-chip-No. 1 kids. If you are getting three or four or five of them, and the rest of the other teams aren’t getting them..." "But, understand, it’s resources, support from his administration and then it’s about him being the best recruiter. The thing you can hang on his hat, he’s the best recruiter in the country because he continually gets the very best kids..." This is from Cael's former boss, Olympic coach, and USA wrestling national development coach.

    What was up with spencer Lee this year?

    The stats are virtually identical. 18 falls, techs, and majors each year; Lee had one fewer win by dec this year with one more loss. And by the way, opponents are allowed to improve especially if they have some familiarity. If Lee's 2019-20 stats are once again similar I can't wait to hear the new excuses.

    What was up with spencer Lee this year?

    The Hawkeyes have been trying to sell this same crap for years; When one of their beloved wrestlers loses then he has something wrong with him that caused it. Let's examine just when Lee got his mysterious illness: Nov- tech, tech, tech Dec- maj, tech, fall, tech, tech, dec, loss Jan- dec, fall, fall Feb- maj, fall,fall,fall, lb fall Mar-fall, maj, lb dec, tech, maj, fall, dec, dec I don't see it. His stats from last year are nearly identical. 2017-18.......9 falls.......8 techs.......1 maj......5 decs......2 losses 2018-19.......8 falls.......7 techs.......3 maj......4 decs.....3 losses

    Penn State 2019-2020 optimal lineup

    Breaking news: Brandom Eggum granted a 6th year. He will be their coach and also wrestle 184 for the Gophers.
  21. Hilger beat Stoll 1-0 during the season and they went out of bounds 14 times. Were they step-outs or push-outs? Nobody knows how to call these so action becomes the no-fault calls by the refs.

    Rank the Rankers - 2019

    Now you need to evaluate whether the scores have any validity. i.e. is a score of 544 substantially different from a score of 588. This will depend upon the metrics you used to determine the scores. For instance, if you simply measured the % that the sites predicted AAs and their exact placements you would get a range of 65-75% and 20-25% respectively based upon previous years results.
