    Pat Downey "Uncut" interview

    interesting exchange here. the whole 'wolfpack eagle gorilla' thing was weird IMO, but the whole 'could have had 2 titles' thing is BS. would have could have should have...

    What are your best Iowa taunting memories?

    Somewhat related, but was it Johny Hendricks who flipped off the Iowa crowd one year?

    Suriano vs Fix: Who wins the dual?

    I was gonna drive up to Rutgers for this but bailed out at the last minute...feeling okay with my decision after reading all this...

    Suriano vs Fix: Who wins the dual?

    Thanks for the updates...is it an exciting match or mostly just cautious?

    Great for Suriano

    I could see him taking out Gross, but it will certainly be a toss up. I agree that a really tough room will give results, the whole steel sharpens steel thing. But who knows, maybe Suriano kicking butt in practice every day will put him in a better spot mentally than getting roughed up more often at PSU.

    What is going on with Princeton

    I did my grad work at Princeton so I'm familiar with the university. Note that Princeton compared to some of the other Ivies doesn't have quite the same grade inflation problem. In fact, until recently they actually had grade deflation. I'm not sure what type of flexibility athletes get there in terms of admissions, but they don't get special accommodations for classes that I've heard of or witnessed. When I was teaching / grading there we were never encouraged to raise grades or pass students. The athletes are all quite capable students and looking at their work you wouldn't see much of a difference in athlete vs non athlete. The undergrad classes there are pretty rigorous and a lot is expected of them in terms of independent work. Also note that Princeton requires every student to do an undergrad thesis starting their Junior year which is a big academic commitment often meaning spending up to a summer doing fieldwork which takes away from training. No idea on the other ivies, but kudos to the Princeton team IMO.
  8. Pretty funny especially the end bits but...man I just cringe at some of those

    Iowa vs Princeton

    Glory has a big future but I don't think he makes it the 6 minutes

    Fix vs Gross/Lizak this weekend

    I think he beats Lizak but drops a 2-3 pt match to Gross. I'm really interested to see how he does with Gross

    Sadulaev by pin little over a minute

    Even though the loss hurts, I agree. I think also both of these guys view wrestling as more about perfecting the art over the course of a career as opposed to just winning or losing, not that this doesn't sting for Synder. Interesting to see how the rivalry develops.

    Good McDonough Interview

    Didn't see this posted but thought I'd share: https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6213362 Good interview with McDonough about starting at Wisconsin, his philosophy moving forward, and just general convo. I thought he was pretty open and very personable. Should be able to land some great recruits at WI.
