    10 year challange

    LOL....he's a PSU coach isn't he? No wonder Bo got so good so fast. Varner was a superb wrestler, but I never liked him.

    10 year challange

    No kidding. The fact that Ashnault won the NC at all just shows how weak 149 was this year.

    Maryland Coach (over/under)

    Everybody knows who the top kids are and where they are already. The trick is recruiting them, and who can compete with a school already dominating D1 that has an Olympic training facility essentially on campus?

    Just hire Kyle Dake and be done with it.

    Who gets the Hodge?

    Over at W.I.N. people can vote on who they think deserves the Hodge. Bo was leading in a landslide. He had over 6,000 votes, and I think the 2nd most was Nolf with 2,700 or so.

    Yianni's Freakish Arms

    Yianni is clearly very strong, despite his appearance.

    Yianni's Freakish Arms

    If he had a normal sized head he'd probably be wrestling 157! On the other hand he must be very intelligent.

    Dom Demas

    Demas impressed me a great deal. Guys here saying he's peaked already are being pretty dismissive of him. He was only a FR this year, he's only going to get better.

    Returning Placers per weight

    I've read in this forum that his offseason walking around weight is around 193 pounds. In an interview I heard him say he felt great at 174 and didn't have to cut a lot of weight. I could see him moving up, though, to make room for his brother, as you said. In that case: hit the weights, Zahid :D
  10. Dakota Geer of OSU was the #26 seed at 184 and finished 7th. Along the way he defeated the following seeds: #7, #2, #3. Did any other unexpected AAs beat that many high seeds?

    Most upsets on way to AA status?

    Stencel gave White a go. Regarding FLO picking Thomas to make the finals: what were those guys smoking?

    Valencia post match interview.

    Still, he never shoots on the top guys. Pretty weak, imo.

    On behalf of the southerners here ....why can't she be BOTH?

    Suriano’s Dad

    Why doesn't it surprise me that Suriano's dad was acting the jackass? Oh wait.....

    Iowa returns 7 All Americans next year

    You say Tbar isn't a PA guy and you don't understand how he likes PSU wrestling. Simple. He likes their wrestlers, how they wrestle, and he likes their coach. I've never liked PSU in anything until Cael came along and turned their program into a beast. I'm a fan of PSU wrestling (not on the scale of my longtime favorites) but I really enjoy watching PSU because they are the best team out there. A guy doesn't HAVE to be from Oklahoma to admire OSU wrestling. A guy doesn't have to be from PA to admire PSU wrestling. Stop being a fuddy-duddy old man.

    Iowa returns 7 All Americans next year

    Don't be ridiculous. That's the Oklahoma Sooners. A more appropriate comparison for the Hawkeyes would be the Dallas Cowboys. They were great a long time ago but haven't won a title in a long time, and are unlikely to win one again for a long, long time. Or at least until the coach is replaced :D

    Valencia post match interview.

    Me too. Zahid is a little cocky, which befits a kid on his level. I like watching him wrestle, he's aggressive and is constantly working. Was happy to see him beat Hall, who never shoots on top guys and somehow never gets called for stalling.

    Myles Martin - best ever 1 time champ?

    Not only favored, but a massive over favorite. I'd say he was as favored to win 184 as Nickal was 197 or Nolf at 157, or damned near.

    Cassar’s Lip Tattoo

    All the NCAA concerns itself with is 1) it's public image and 2) cashing in on the athlete's hard work. #2 counts more than #1.

    "PED Life". Must be a Sandusky fan.....
  22. OU's AA (Demas) is from Ohio. I think he'll win a title before he graduates. OSU's are from Oklahoma (Fix, White), New York (Picc), Pennsylvania (Geer) and Kansas (Weigel).

    Coach John Smith

    Fix needs to cut his hair so that he looks more like a man instead of a poodle. Wouldn't have to worry about guys grabbing his hair, then.

    NCAA D1 champs with worst HS results

    That growth spurt happened to one of my relatives. My dad said that his cousin Johnny was a runt when he was a young teen, but around 19 or 20 he got in a growth spurt and shot up to 6'4" (from about 5'6"). Must be kind of weird, being a little guy then becoming a big guy. Wish I'd have had something like that happen to me, I'd much rather be 6'4" than 5'11".

    Toughest path to the title

    I heard he was even more hatchet-faced than Cumberbatch!
