    redblades reacted to AnklePicker in Penn State @ Rutgers..2pm..BTN   
    I could be wrong but it looked to me like Nolf dislocated his knee cap. I had a high school kid I coach have that happen this season. If he tore ligaments dislocating it he will be out for season. If it's just sprained then out 3 weeks. My guy was back in 3 weeks. Hoping Nolf's is even less serious.

    redblades reacted to KSchlosser in Ben Darmstadt Hodge   
    I think Ben has been a little under rated since he got to high school because of the way he grew, 90, 120, 160, 182, 195, 197.He has always been a little long and lanky but getting to New York has stabilized him and allowed him to fill out. Growing the way he did he never really had the opportunity to develop rivalries and wrestle the same guys year after year because he outgrew them. In high school he wrestled DI in NE Ohio and didn't duck anyone and in the offseason he wrestled a national schedule with his club. Very smart kid, college prep and advanced placement the whole way. With that said he may not get someone the first time out but i like him to improve upon his results match after match and rematch and I am very hesitant to give him ceiling. As to fearing Kollin Moore, I appreciate the laugh and look forward to seeing them wrestle.

    Obviously a joke, but 19-1 with 12 pins. He's no  secret or anything...but if he wrestled for PSU he'd have 53 topics by now.

    redblades got a reaction from tigerfan9311 in What if: Allocations were awarded today, based SOLELY on Coaches' Ranking   
    That's the $64,000 question - Is a ranking a projection, or is it more like standings?  If purely based on (quantifiable) results, then the computer rankings would make more sense; but as we all have seen, too often these seem to fail the "eye test".  Suffice to say, all of the rankings seem to be based on different methodologies, and produce somewhat different results.  To the extent that any of these allow for human "judgement"  - I have little doubt that some level of bias creeps in, if only based upon what the ranker has seen, versus what they have learned second hand.
     
    Another factor to consider - what instructions are the coaches given in voting for the Coaches' Poll?  Are they told to consider only this season's results?  Discount preseason or exhibition results (e.g., All Star matches).  And do all coaches follow such instructions as rigorously as others?
     
    I think if you studied all of the polls, you might find not so much of a negative bias against certain programs, but more likely a positive bias in favor of more high-profile individuals, programs, conferences, etc.  And as long as you have a process that relies on opinion polls as part of the selection process - that bias will be inherent.  Look no further than D1 football.

    This ref is brutal.  Turk landed about 75 jabs to Heil without a warning and Blaylock gets immediately rung up for a penalty on hands to the forehead.

    So he's been injured all the first part of the season?  Just wrestling his first match this weekend?  And Ryan is going to ease him back into things?
     
    Good coaching move, IMO, I've got no problem with that.  Added bonus - the PSU fans will all cry "Seed Protection"!  (Fake News?)
     
    BTW, number of wins and quality wins all factor into seeding - so holding him back may not necessarily be best for his seeding, although it may be the right thing to do.

    FWIW - from seeding, they were projected to finish 13th at the Scuffle, with 19 team points; instead they finished 6th, with 77.5 points, 7 wrestlers in placement.  Not too shabby!

    Ryan is just beating Cael at his own game.  Nothing matters but getting the best seeding for the NCAA's.
