    Cael said "Wrestling needs more scholarships"

    UNC's athletic department was involved in a massive scandal, concerning mostly the bball and football teams. Surprised you didn't hear about it, but for decades UNC bballers and footballers kinda had the option not to attend classes AT ALL, amongst other improprieties. One of the worst things about it was that UNC had a stellar reputation as a topnotch academic option. Well, they blew that. Here, check it out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_North_Carolina_academic-athletic_scandal

    Crazy, huh? Frankly I don't have a problem with parents trying to give their kids the edge, but these school administrators (coaches, deans, etc) who accept the bribes should be outed as a hypocritical scum they are.

    285 Bracket redrawn

    0-2 is 0-2, regardless of draw.

    Yup. Has nothing to do with the school's "mission" to teach whatsoever. What I think is goofiest is that TONS of stupid kids get into college and take joke majors. Can't be doing any credit to the school's academic reputation. Plus sometimes the schools cheat to allow even dumber kids in and cheat to keep them eligible. UNC comes to mind immediately.

    Frankly it amazes me that athletic schollies exist at all.

    Celebrations that age well

    Those are much more acceptable than my celebration. After winning the final match in a FS dual against Iran in 1985 I did a backflip, grabbed the Iranian flag, then proceeded to "saw" it through my legs, front to back, like I was drying my ass after taking a shower. The Iranians were outraged, we barely got out with our lives.

    Annual Vak Bracket Breakdown

    Interesting picks, Vak. Was surprised you had Dakota Geer making the podium.

    First Million Dollar Coach

    The highest paid wrestling coach, as far as I know, is Cael. I read somewhere he makes about $350,000 a year.

    Three 3x champions?

    Ever prognosticated on upcoming wrestling matches.....ON WEED? Nevermind, we all know....
  10. Typical plan for ex-wrestlers...
  11. The wingers certainly love playing the victim card, don't they? The funniest is when the evangelicals bitch that not allowing them to discriminate/harrass others is a VIOLATION OF THEIR RIGHTS, lol.
  12. Glory is very good. He has a shot vs anybody, but he's definitely a dog vs Picc. Picc is pretty long for a 125 pounder, he could probably put on a bit more muscle (and he's already jacked).
  13. Got to agree with you on most of your sentiments. I25 - Lee's gastank wasn't where it should have been this season. Don't know the reason, not going to speculate. If he's gotten his tank back I'd make him the favorite at 125. If not...I think Picc takes it. 133 - lots of guys here with potential to win. Fix is the #1 seed, and I'm confident he makes the semifinals:D He's a big time kid though, tough to score on. Wish he would turn on his offense a little more sometimes, though. Surino, Phiippi both have a shot. Will be interesting watching what DeSanto goes. 141 Yianni. Wouldn't be surprised if he was wrestling Lee in the finals. 149 I think it's relatively wide open. Rooting for Kaden but he kinda faded near the end of the season. 157 Nolf in a cakewalk. 165 Joseph. Yeah ,Marinelli might be better, but Joseph is money at NCAAs. 174 Hall. He's a freakish athlete. 184 Martin in a cakewalk. 197 Bo in a cupcake walk, with sprinkles. HWT Steveson, if he wrestles offensively. If not, White.

    Conference tournament vs. NCAA tournament

    No stupid, you are supposed to use a whip, not a bat!

    Dresser Coach of the Year Cyclone Nation Proud

    Probably just window dressing for the rivalry, I doubt there's any real heat.
  16. If only FLO cared as much about streaming video quality as they do Patrick Swayze movie quality.

    Over/under on NOLF pins?

    If I had to guess who beat Gable 5 times I'd say Leroy Kemp.

    Chance's Chances

    Oh! Didn't even notice that. Is he Alex's brother or cousin or something?

    Over/under on NOLF pins?

    Nickal doesn't really break them down, though. He kinda backs off, hands on shoulders, waiting on them to get up and turn around at which point he can shoot immediately and dump them again. If they just kinda stay on fours, kinda semi up, and don't do anything he switches to the other side and tries to power a cradle or something like that. Fun to watch, kinda like watching a spider and a fly.
