    I guess I'm old-school, but I think it's kind of a strange commentary on the world that we need to use technology to ignore someone!  But hey, whatever! ;-)

    redblades got a reaction from grappler6 in Taffur named Asst at F&M   
    Jason, you are right about that… but actually, Superold is not my intended audience! :-)
     
     
    So you see, here’s the difference between us – You see a guy who didn’t make it onto the podium last year.  End of story.
     
    I had several opportunities to watch Taffur last season and in particular, had several opportunities to see him close up at Easterns, and all in all, here is what I saw –
     
    - I saw a guy who was 37-4 overall last year, and really never far out of reach of a win in any of the matches he lost up until the last.
    - I saw a guy who beat out two eventual AA’s (Realbuto and Perrotti) to win the EIWA championship.
    - I saw a guy who lost an 18-11 barn-burner of a quarterfinal match at NCAA's to Dieringer, the eventual champ at 157.
    - I saw a guy who, every tinme I watched him, wrestled smart, but also wrestled with guts and with heart.
    - I saw a guy who wrestled with the belief that he COULD beat the best.
    - I saw a guy who brings the same qualities to the mat that, somewhat ironically, I have read Matt Greenberg writing that he thought needed to be brought into the realm of the F&M wrestling culture.
     
    So – would Taffur be a “great get” for Iowa, or OSU, or Penn State?  Maybe not.  But at a program that’s trying to lift itself up, Like F&M – yeah, I think he brings a lot to the room.  Great get.
     
    In short - you se a statistical metric.  I see a young man who laid it all on the line every time he went out on the mat.
     
    So – you’ve state your position.  I’ve laid out mine.  We’ll see which of us (if any?) has any real influence with the powers that be! ;-P

    Nothing worse than college restarts on a smaller mat.  Not unusual to have it happen 30+ times.  You can actually see fans falling asleep.  Anyone who is against the push out rule has a death wish for wrestling.

    All good, MA, and I'm not out to contradict you so much as to present a bit of the opposing view; and I'm pretty much in agreement with the rest of your picks for this dual.  Very intriguing matchups all around!

    Well, there's a couple of early meatgrinder tournaments as usual, and some interesting duals with Edinboro, Mizzou, UNI, Oklahoma, maybe NC State.  But noticeably lacking are any duals with the current "Big 4".  Of course, there's a decent chance for a meeting with another top 4 team at National Duals.  (notice where the finals are scheduled, BTW?)

    ^^^ I am finding myself in the rare postition of agreeing with FlyingTiger.
     
    This is becoming a strange and bitter thread.  I'm not really a Penn fan, but I am generally an EIWA fan and a fan of wrestling overall, and so along those lines, I sincerely hope to see Alex do well at Penn (Just not quite as well as Rob Koll!).  And I hope most other fans feel the same way.  As for the other off-topic stuff - take it somewhere else?
