  1. rumor has it...i hope so..world team trials were sickening watching a couple of these takedowns decide the match
  2. 95% of military members join the military for financial security. I think you just made my point
  3. You're assuming Pico joins the army with no intention in fighting in armed combat. Just increase my tax dollars even more so we can pay him an income to train toward his olympic aspirations. I hate when I hear this kind of crap.....join the army for financial security?????
  4. oops....sorry for the multiple posts
  5. If you had a son and you had one college wrestler you wanted him to emulate(within reason lol) who would it be?
  6. Ryan may have the biggest man crush ever for Delgado....its getting weird..... :o
  7. While I do think what Cael did was pretty cool I would have expected nothing less from him. Although Iike many other posters I do believe based on what I have heard that most head coaches would have stayed behind with Nico. What is lost in this whole discussion is Nico's ability to wrestle with badly bruised ribs which based on reports happened during the Clark match(his next to last match) and come back with 2 huge wins for the Team. And from reports Nico never even told the coaches or anyone about the injury....but again seeing Nico wrestle for the last 3 years I am not surprised by this. A clever post was made on the penn state boards describing the injury "Nico's heart was too big for his rib cage". I read that and got chills....talk about mental toughness and sacrifice!!
  8. NoVa...I have to be misinterpreting what he posted. Jason......seriously??
  9. And can you please quote me on anything I have said about cutting weight? Can you quote me on what these so called perversions of the sport are? I never said one thing about cutting weight except to call out a poster who said about the ridiculous 1 pound thing. The only thing I regretted was mentioning Rob Koll's interview. I should have just started a thread about the blessings so many of us have had with our children and how this sport was pretty instrumental in allowing us bonding time with them. For us, my wife included, it was so cool to make a mini vacation out of it ( even if it wasn't in the greatest place next to an ocean lol). And the whole point was how so many of these wrestlers were at a young age and were national finalists last year in college. I am very good friends with the parents today. My intent is that kids can start at an early age and not burn out and grow up to be all americans and NATIONAL FINALISTS and I believe combining mini trips where you have one on one time with your child was an important part in making it fun. I'm not going to make any further arguments, it is possible to go back in the archives of tulsa nationals, reno, and TOC ...type in the names of last years NCAA finalists and see the OVERWHELMING amount that competed in these youth events. If that's what you consider psycho and unhealthy than we parents are psycho and unhealthy..oh well Unless someone wants to actually do some constructive research I say we end this thread...because its becoming psychotic and unhealthy to everyone reading these misunderstood threads!!
  10. Thank God ESPN didn't televise the National Duals this year...how embarrassing to see the 100 fans in the bleachers....yeah real great for the television viewing audience to see the lack of fans there

  12. the joke was about the fact that kids weight fluctuate by a pound if they take a good pee...yes I am confident about that. BrGuy....are you really sad? Kinda on the soft side you are
  13. I have been going to the NCAA's for over 20 years. The excitement of the top 3 teams competing for first is obvious...The excitement of the individual matchups is obvious...But there is one more thing that is obvious that I really haven't heard discussed . There are other teams in the NCAA championship that fans cheer for!!! The amount of anticipation , discussion, jagging their buddies from other schools, cheering , to the schools who have NO CHANCE of winning but do have a chance to finish in the top 10 is being completely ignored here. The fans who want their school to finish ahead of their "hated" rival is being ignored. To the fans it's almost like winning the team title . They get to argue all year by who is better. Everytime the team scores are announced you don't just hear excitement from the team that is in first , you here the other fans cheering by hearing their names mentioned over their "hated" rival school. When you hear the arguments or jagging it's comical...My buddies from Lehigh and Pitt are hilarious. Pitt beats Lehigh in a regular season dual for example but Lehigh is in 7th place and Pitt is in 11th place during the semis for example and the fun starts. To them it is just as exciting as the fans trying to win 1st place. And this is happening with so many other teams in the arena ....they have the same rivalry....The argument of who is better goes like this "you guys beat us in a dual but we beat you in the biggest Real NCAA team championships ....when it mattered. It's fun for the teams who have no chance of winning. Lastly....Can you imagine if ESPN markets the National Duals ....only to realize that wrestling fans(including PSU, Iowa, okie state, Minnesota, Cornell) do not travel any kind of long distance to watch duals. Fans have to make plans in advance and with the uncertainty of dual meet outcomes are not willing to book a flight and hotel in advance. Dual meets are PHENOMENAL when they are before crowd's loud cheers. That is why duals are critical for the season .....but when it comes to long distance traveling they simply WILL NOT go as evidenced by the 2 National Dual finalists this year. I would like to be in the meeting and look at the faces of ESPN when a coach says an empty arena is fine...people will watch on TV....OMG
