    I miss the BigApple monologues. 

    LIMarty fascinated me bc it wasn't a bit.

    I liked that atheist on the NWT board ... PSU(something?) ... his username was in blue, I think.

    Delfino, DF (I assume they were the same person) seemed troubled. I'm not sure if he knew whether it was a bit or not.

    Fivewords stuck to his guns.

    Chertow's shameless spamming was great.

     

    If you miss Chertow's spamming,  add him on Facebook. lol

    I don't think he had a choice in what happened to Zahid. Once it got out there was no way to keep it in house. Then again it happened overseas so it was out of their control anyway. It ended up not mattering since the tournament was canceled. 

    Another reason we probaly never heard an apology from Zahid.   Didn't matter once he was kicked off and the tournament was cancelled anyway.

    One of my favorite coaches to heckle, Zeke never disappoints. I'd say he is angling for future calls, but in reality I think he is really paranoid and thinks the world is against him. Some call this little man syndrome. 

    Wonder if he thought ASU was against him when they  forced his hand on Zahid?

     


  5. He ran Iowa State club team from his couch in Cali.    Was hired to take over NWKTC  (NJCAA)  and wasn't around while team ran afoul (dismissed before 1st semester even over).   I believe he then landed at Wheeling Jesuit (DII)  and was gone within a month.  Then a Pharmacy College in St. Louis adding wrestling announced his hiring and many of us lost our collective crap and he got canned pretty quick when individuals from the local sector all the way to higher brass in coaching circles called the school out and asked WTF were they thinking?

    Are there 5 opportunities for redshirt freshmen second semester? 

    Yes.  By the way the rule looks  they can RS  and be in  a dual for example.  I think we will see some schools willing to bring in say a DII or DIII to dual the "RS"  Guys.   It won't count against them,  and they get experience.  Maybe you see RS Teams vs RS Teams,  and even some jucos being able to get duals with bigger schools.

    What are the odds August Wesley has not only applied but lobbied for the job. 

    I'm banned from posting on his fake wiki account.  I changed that he placed in Sunkist Kids to Capri-Sun Kids.  Also says he was some NE  Champ or something,  so I put the NSEW  Misdirection Incontenental Champion and some other stuff.  He's a crook.   But with lack of some schools having applicants,  I would not be shocked to see him emerge again.  Think he is pretty much hit the crap list in Iowa, Kansas, and Misssouri...but I honestly can see him showing up somewhere again.   Which will give me something to be super vocal about.

    No rumors,  but some I think these guys could make solid options  (A- previous hc, B-  big name assistant already on East coast,  C- one of the top HS coaches):

     

    Kerry McCoy

    Jamill Kelly 

    Cornell Robinson  

     

    Some outside the box thoughts on coaches (guys I'd really love to see in the mix ...but have solid gigs where they are at):

    OT Johnson -  DII UNCP Coach.  Great energy with dyamic capability of technician and recruiter.  

    Marques Gales-  CACC   Sac. City College HC.  Formerly was HC at DIII  Trinity College in CT where he was the DIII Rookie Coach of the Year in 2014.  (Has East Coast experience, but is back in California where he was a competitor at CACC and DII level).    

    Omi Acosta -  NAIA Life HC;   Dude knows how to recruit and produce.  Give him the budge Morgan State will have and his connections from the South as well as with Juco,  and he'd have them up and running asap.  

     

     

    Also can't forget Shelton Mack asst at Columbia and former Pitt Panther.  He'd  be dam solid!

    This pertains not just to wrestling, but to life in general.  In my life rarely have I found the "big talkers" to be the "big do-ers".

    Great list.  Thanks to you and DF.

    Like promising to sign singlets for kids and then sending them?  ;)

    A little weird but if you google articles come out as of last August but nothing earlier that I can see yet. About a year and a half later.

    There were articles out a while back,  one I can't find now is the fact Sinkovics has now been associated with 2 wrestling deaths.

    I would love to see the championship trophy make it west of the Rockies, but I don't know.  The deck is definitely stacked against the teams out west.  I can see teams like Arizona State, Oregon State, Cal Poly, and Stanford being perennial top 10 contenders - sneaking into a trophy slot every few years.   Winning it all in the current landscape would be an extraordinary feat!  

    These schools are on trajectory to hopefully save the West.   Get past the rockies we should have powerhouses with all the dam talent and lack of opportunities.   Should have a ton of hammers at each program and be top tier yearly (Top 15 or so).

    Never knew they had a team. That's a problem.

     

    We have similar problem across divisions.   I usually know of if a school has wrestling or not regardless of division,  but I was in SW Pennsylvania this past week and had to look up on a local college website to know Washington and Jefferson had a program.   DI's there are a few I have to double check from time to time.  Davidson I knew only because of the Wince family that long was associated with it.  Ty Eustice should be elevated in my opinion.  Pretty well known name that could get recruits, and furthermore might be able to get bigger programs to dual them.   

    Speaking of bigger programs and dualing,  that is another reason we struggle to hear from some smaller programs.  They need those schools to dual them to help with qualifying numbers and strength of schedule.  If Big 10, Big 12,  Pac 12, and ACC give a big F. U.  to these schools,  they would be more well known.

    Lots of off season chatter basically about everything in folk stinks (stalling, the edge of the mat, pushout etc) and free is amazing etc.  

    there seems to be no buzz and very little chatter in the international forum about the us open.  The national championship across multiple age divisions and styles. The pinnacle of the sport domestically outside the wtt…. And yet  barely seems like an event is even going on.   
     

    compare that to the drama and excitement of conference + ncaa tournament.   Crazy.  
     

    I’ll take folk all day…. Superior product from the fans perspective imo.  

    For me,  folkstyle grows faster because fanbase of folk is willing to sit and explain and have great patience.   FS/Greco to me has been pretty snobby from folks;  "You don't F'in understand FS?"   is how I've seen people greeted to that side of things.

    What we, as wrestling people, have to realize is if any change happens to our NCAA tournaments (D1, D2, D3), you have to understand that will likely be impacted on what shifts other sports are going to have to make. You don't just double the size of a tournament that's already at an absurd qualifier to participant ratio comparatively speaking to make it even more absurd. 

    If you just compare Division I and it's (soon-to-be) 81 teams, you get 330 individuals. Division III is at 120 and has 180 qualifiers. 

    What happens when you add more qualifiers to the NCAA championships? Cost increases and now magnify that times the 90 NCAA championship events they operate. 

     

     

    DIII model is one that I'd advocate more for in a heartbeat.   Not sure if it should stay region specific,  or if they could do like some sports and rank so many and spread out to break up the groups.   The ARC  regional is super tough,   be nice to see some splitting up of talent, or x amount get autos,  and do a national WC or something.


  16. Rob Tate is the HC there.  He was a DI qualifer for Gardner Webb.   They already have a solid schedule as a DII.  They dualed NAIA runner up Life and UNC-Chapel Hill.   Citadel beat them 30-10.   They need some more support if they are transitioning,  but I'd guess they would jump into the SOCONN and could be somewhat good out there.  They had 3 NQ this year in DII  but they went a combined 1-6  at the DII Championships.   Adding them to DI,  would put NC as a state at like 10 DI teams right?   (or in that vicinity)? 

    Ken Chertow was there for a short time as HC.  Maybe a season?

    Is tying for 1st in the Mizzou-less B12 really that great of an achievement?

     

    If we want to go that route,  is Mizzou only having 4 champs in the MAC in 2021 that great of an achievement?   MAC had 3 teams finish in Top 30.   Big 12 had 7.   What they did at Big 12 was pretty solid.   Mizzou was expected to win MAC always because $$$ compared to the other teams in that conference flowing in.

    If I remember correctly this years freshman class at OU has been his best recruiting class since he arrived. His team should be fairly young next season so it will be an opportunity for him to develop those kids as well as add with the kids coming up in Oklahoma. 

    Lou is a great person that is surrounded by wonderful good quality men on his staff.   We have teams out there that have way bigger issues and retain coaches for decades.   I think it will be fun to see what develops at OU.
