  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. And I'm not convinced that "scoring machines" will cause a noticeable increase in viewers. I keep hearing that over and over again, but I never see anything to back it up.

     

    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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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). Bo mopped Cody W. That was impressive.

     

     

    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.


  5. Alton doesn't need time to get in shape, he needs a lung transplant. Stop with that nonsense. Nothing will change.

     

    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.
