  1. I know as competitors, they will likely stay put, but as a fan of USA wrestling, wouldn't it be great for one of them to drop and rep us at worlds at the weight below? Of course everyone here would say they are running, but I think either of them give us a better shot than Marable,
  2. I'll take the odds too. Some people are classless.
  3. I'm not one to be critical- but really? That is one of the worst quotes I have EVER seen. How much criticism do you see on these boards do you see on Tony Nelson, Chris Perry, etc? Anyone in their right mind would rather watch David Taylor, Logan Stieber, Ed Ruth, Jordan Burroughs, Jordan Oliver style of wrestling. Kids here in our local gym in Western PA all know who David Taylor and Jordan Burroughs is. I'm not sure they know anyone else, and yes they are quite young still.
  4. He will definitely win a championship or two. Maybe not right away, but he will. Too talented not too. Have you watched him ever?
  5. Chance is an absolute stud! I think he will be the best 1-2 period wrestler, or as good as any. So fundamentally sound, so well grounded, and a true technician. Where I see him running into problems is the 3rd period or later. His gas tank has rarely ever been tested, but when it has, it doesn't seem so great. I'd give Bo the nod right now, but I am also putting weight on what Bo did to Wierioch.
  6. David Taylor Maj Robert Kokesh (Nebraska) 13-3 David Taylor Fall Robert Kokesh (Nebraska) :30
  7. BoJo is not beating Dieringer? Didn't we just have a season where two of the all time greats, Ruth and Stieber, lost to true frosh? Much respect for Dieringer but I think we should let this one play out. If you're going to bring up Ruth and Stieber in particular, it's worth noting that both avenged their losses to the freshman that beat them. Of course it's possible Bo beats him, but like Dean and Retherford, he would be a pretty overwhelming underdog out of the gates.
  8. Bojo is not beating Dierenger next year. And whoever asked about Marstellar.. I think Marstellar could win a 1 pd match but that's about it. Marstellar seems to have issues late in matches (during a 6 min high school match). No mopped Cody W. That was impressive.

  11. What realistically is McCutcheon or Hammonds potential? Not only next year, but peak in the career?
  12. Dierenger is going 165 and is a stud in his own right. I also wonder if James Green may bump, although it seems he is a small 157? If he went up, he would blast Bo. Green and Stieber will battle next year for the OW in my opinion.

  14. I'd personally like to see Zain RS next year as well. Take a rebuilding year, come back firing in 2015-16.
  15. According to sources at the beginning of the year, if Nico didn't win a ship this year, he was going to RS. A few of the PSU wrestlers had said this early in the year.
  16. Bucs have my vote as the frontrunners. Star studded lineup!
  17. I'm fine with Taylor, Stieber or Dierenger.
  18. Dean definitely does look good. Not sure how Ruth balled him up the first time-- Dean is a tank.
  19. Taylor actually jumped the whistle off the start and got a caution. It was pretty clear at that point he wanted to work very quickly. As a nice little bonus, I got to meet Varner.
  20. I was at Rec Hall today, and must say it was a pleasure meeting both Ed and David. That pin shoulda been called at about 7 seconds, but whatever, lol. What a way for both of them to go out! Will certainly miss these 2! It was buzzing. Glad I have video of some of it!
  21. I hate to say it, but it's true. I know first hand what it's like to deal with these issues. Having asthma and allergies all growing up, I dealt with this all to often. There is no doubt Andrew can hang with, and beat the best in that class in a 1 minute period. But when his tank goes, it goes. There is nothing that can be done. I hope he figures out what it is for his own sake and health. I can totally understand people wanting to go with Beitz. All I am saying is I'd give Andrew one more shot. That's just me, and I am biased. Biased on what? If your a PSU fan, it shouldn't matter who is out there, as long as it is the best wrestler. In a 3+ period match of NCAA wrestling, Beitz is definitely that guy. Andrew seems to have legitimate health issues that need taken care of. I see no point of letting him go out there and keep getting demoralized buy kids that he is clearly better than. For what it's worth, I am very excited about Beitz moving forward.
