  1. Gabe Dean did an interview with RIchard a few months ago on his podcast - worth a listen (and free). https://www.thedeanslisttalkshow.com/podcast/episode/31653f2f/the-richard-perry-interview-overcoming-traumatic-brain-injury
  2. Mack Lewnes (class of 2011) has to at least be in the conversation for 165/174. Career record of 150-12, 4x EIWA champ, 3x AA (4/DNP/2/4). Soph and Jr years entered the NCAAs as an undefeated #1 seed. Was looking like he might get it done sr. year and then ran into a Penn State freshman named Ed Ruth who turned out to be pretty good. The fluky 0-2 his sophomore year is probably the biggest blemish. He also seemed to have some trouble with some of the longer/taller wrestlers at 174. But amazingly talented and I believe he is still the career wins leader at Cornell. http://www.wrestlingstats.com/cornell/view_wrestlers.php?wrestler=98 And there have only been 12 4x champs in 115 year history of the EIWA. In the last 20 years it has been all Cornell. Mack is the only one of these who didn't also get an NCAA title.

  3. That seems to be the best course of action. Would be great to see as fans (and maybe NBC will still broadcast - there is a brutal shortage of sports content these days) but it is a hell of a lot more important for the athletes than it is for the fans.
  4. Who the hell knows when anything will happen now but the OTT was supposed to be before the last chance qualifier. And the rules clearly state that whoever wins the OTT for a weight that isn't qualified yet will be our rep for the last chance. So for 65kg, win the OTT then advance to the finals of the last chance. Essentially anyone who wants to be our 65kg rep in Tokyo has to win out just to get into the Olympics.
  5. Video here: Decent take down but didn't have the lace set before he started turning.
  6. Well I guess you're good since everyone is getting a refund... And how about those seeds? Oof. Hard to argue with them but another reminder of how tough this tournament is.
  7. At this point I'm a lot more concerned about any weight having a championship this year.
  8. Yup - and if it goes forward it could be a very quiet football stadium.
  9. 8/10 qualifying would not have been my bet at the beginning of the season. And I thought 6/7 were likely heading into the weekend and some people thought I was being overly optimistic but here we are!
  10. You can see some video clips on Cornell's Instagram. Wasn't the greatest competition so it's hard to tell. He wasn't happy with the first couple of matches where he was shaking off some rust - but the final was "blink and you missed it.' https://www.instagram.com/bigredwrestling/
  11.

Not sure when they will put up location given it is tomorrow but my guess is you'll see details here: https://twitter.com/ncaawrestling
  12. The Pan Am Games happens every four years in the year before the Olympics and like the Olympics includes multiple sports. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_American_Games United World Wrestling has regional championships every year. Ours is call the Pan American Championships - and it is completely separate from the Pan Am Games. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_American_Wrestling_Championships For Olympic qualifying, a country can qualify a spot via the 2019 world championships, the 2020 regional qualifier, or the global last chance qualifier. After the 2019 worlds, only countries that haven't qualified a spot can participate in the subsequent qualifiers. Next week is the Pan Am Olympic Games Qualifier - again, only open to countries that have not yet qualified the weight. https://unitedworldwrestling.org/event/pan-american-og-qualifier So think about Pan Am as a regional term just like Europe or Asia. It is used for multiple events.
  13. Your recurring PSA... this is the annual Pan Am Championships, open to all countries in the americas. Next week is the specific Pan Am Olympic Qualifier which is only for countries / weights that have not yet qualified for the Olympics. So far.. Cruz 57 Bronze Graff 61 Gold Yianni 65 Gold
