    Who will Maryland hire?

    Saw somewhere on a Rutgers Forum page that Donnie turned U of Maryland DOWN and is not taking job! Hope someone can confirm.
  2. Would someone post possible lineups for RUTGERS and PRINCETON. Hopefully, these 2 continue to get All Americans and title(s).

    Will M Lewis AA this year?

    Lewis's classmate and co-wrestler of year, both from Bound Brook HS, NJ is Stephan Glasglow who is enrolled at Rutgers. Both were 2x state champs. Both may be at 165.

    BS - How about RU losing 2 matches by 1 pt each???? Also RU very weak at 197 & 285. The announcers, as action was taking place in 157 said something to effect that Nolf and Van Brill wrestle and take chances .

    Iowa Vs Rutgers

    He should have been ready!! Martinez wrestled for Illinois in their dual against Iowa. Hope they are on their “A” game and rebound from the Lock Haven dual. Maybe move Gravina up again? Maybe try something different at 285?

    Iowa Vs Rutgers

    WrestleStat.com has RU winning 24-11. The have 5 matches decided by 1 or 2 pts and 4 matches via bonus. Intetesting that they have Lewis losing by 5!! They do not have Ashnault listed but who knows? We’ll see in 12 days!
  7. Just getting a bit excited to see Redshirt as well as seasoned wrestlers going at it.
  8. Looks like Rutgers may have a rather strong dual meet team with their balance. Rutgers hosts Iowa, Ohio State and Penn State. Any thoughts about Rutgers winning 1 or more of these duals. Thanks

    Downey Update

    The USMC as well as other branches of service would say N O !!! The tattoos, criminal adult record, and general attitude are disqualifiers. Out of the 80 or so D-1 schools, under 5 "may" call him. Entertaining to wonder what if.......
  10. Seeing the interview that he had the other day, all is much clearer. He does not welcome solid advice or direction as he has all of he answers! Dresser would be a real dummy to let him come anywhere near young guys on his team. So a few teams made have been interested. Good bye! Rutgers has a nice up and coming team and doesn't need him either!
  11. Always a lot of emotion and hype after the great WTT with folks thinking we will medal in all 8 weight classes. Sorry, but that will never happen. If the world team member who took 1st goes, it would be great to have 5 or 6 place winners. My question to ponder.... How much difference is there between the #1 guy and the #2 /#3 guys. My opinion is that Green and Snyder the only ones HEAD and Shoulder above the #2 #3 guys. All the others rather close. Lastly, with 10 weeks to go, injury, drug test, accidents could alter the team. Good luck to the team! 2017 SENIOR MEN'S FREESTYLE NATIONAL TEAM57kg Thomas Gilman (World Team Member) Tony Ramos Nathan Tomasello 61kg Logan Stieber (World Team Member) Kendric Maple Brandon Wright 65kg Zain Retherford (World Team Member) Frank Molinaro BJ Futrell 70kg James Green (World Team Member) Jimmy Kennedy Jason Nolf 74kg Jordan Burroughs (World Team Member) Kyle Dake Alex Dieringer 86kg J'Den Cox (World Team Member) David Taylor Nick Heflin 97kg Kyle Snyder (World Team Member) Kyven Gadson Hayden Zillmer 125kg Nick Gwiazdowski (World Team Member) Dom Bradley Tony Nelson
  12. OK. This is the info from Google search. 1) Nov 2009 - Baltimore City, charged with assault against a Towson University student in the M & T Stadium lot. The other kid lost 4 teeth and suffered a broken jaw. He pled guilty (CONVICTION) to 2nd degree assault, given 6 days in jail and 10 year suspended sentence. (17 years old but charged in adult court). 2) June 2010 - Baltimore City some Bourbon St. Ballroom nightclub, charged with assault against 1 or 2 Navy Academy students (both were football players?). One lost a tooth and got a broken jaw. The Navy kids names are mentioned in article. 3) Sept 2010 - Anne Arundel County MD, charged with 17 counts - robbery, theft, 2nd degree assault - bought marijuana, stole it back and didn't pay, etc.... Wow!! I have worked law enforcement for over 22 years and would bet the bank..... Many more illegal exploits with this fellow.. but fortunate enough to have not gotten caught. He was going to go to a junior college in Oregon, then went to U of Nebraska - dismissed, then went to the Iowa junior college - Champion, then went to Iowa State (1 year AA, then dismissed), now my guess is NO Team wants this guy.
  13. He put together a rather solid performance at US Open for 5th place. Looking over the WTT, if Cox does not go, then Taylor sits out and waits for winner of mini tournament. He could surprise folks and win the mini tourney (Nickal, Perry and Heflin would be in his way). Anyway, rumor a while back was that Downey was hoping to be going to U of Maryland or Rutgers. Also, does he have 1 or 2 years of eligibility left??

    What does Dake do now?

    Dale is amazing with balance, mat savvy, and defensive skills with his low center of gravity ( 3 point stance). My opinion is that it gives JB fits. International refs will penalize him all day!!! In WTTs he will be getting put on shot clock and will not beat JB!!! Maybe 2018 or 2019

    World cup thread

    Does USA wrestling have a news release noting who exactly made the trip? Somewhere it was noted 13 wrestlers going + coaches, trainers, managers for a total of about 21 folks. It would be nice to have them do a general post noting who went, time difference and where to watch. I think they will be on UWW with an 8 1/2 hour time differential (Iranian time - 8 1/2 hrs for eastern time zone ). My guess from what I have seen is Thursday Feb 16, Mat A 0100 hrs to 0500 hrs to see US v Georgia and then Russia v US. So, could someone note who all went on the trip. Thanks
