  1. Ohio State with 5 all champ side Missouri & iowa both 3 champ side & 4 consis I know fans from all 3 teams are bragging it up & rubbing their rabbits foot hoping if they post on here what they have going, it will somehow bring the team some juju.
  2. Listening to a bunch of grown men insult one another & young men that have worked & deserve respect from everyone on here is amazing. No matter whom you are rooting for, to call out these young or cheer on here when they lose shows serious character flaws from all involved. Cheer for you team from your armchair & give all the wrestlers this weekend the props they deserve!
  3. You guys are very very funny. Seriously though, Brascetta makes great shotguns & handguns!
  4. Whether they wrestle in the semis or finals, Taylor still must get through the unicorn slayer in the challenge tournament o meet JB in the final.
  5. +2 :lol: I guess smart phones & other devices are only as "smart" as the user.
  6. Yes & it won't be Taylor, therefore he will have to wrestle Dake once again to get a shot at JB.
  7. You are obviously able to post as you are watching. Why not use your SMART phone for something productive. I am watching for the next 3 matches up on each mat as we speak using trackwrestling. Try it out it's pretty amazing. You can even watch live scoring if the score clocks are to far away to read.
  8. It won't matter for the trials as Dake will be wrestling in the final against Burroughs instead of David.
  9. With the advent of the computer, it hard to imagine that some fans fail to realize that they may access up to the second bracket updates for free through trackwrestling..
  10. Yep the team trophy is headed to Penn St once again. :lol: A couple of very astute posters warned that upsets can & do happen for every team. Gonna be a great weekend. The team title is definitely still up for grabs.
  11. You want the truth? You can't handle the truth! Just some washed up old wrestler trying to teach kids how to wrestle. Cornholed4evr - I actually like Cornell, Iowa, Oklahoma State, etc but you give Cornell a bad name (Bon Jovi reference for you as a New Jersey fan!)
  12. I will trade lemon pie's & your posting privileges for DF's any day!
  13. Again no upset. Retheford was seeded Ugi was not. Nice win though. Dardanes escaped the upset.
  14. 1st upset - Moreno (Iowa State) with a losing record over Lester (Oklahoma)
  15. That would have been great for a fan to jump the railing. He would have enjoyed some "rainblows" the face.
  16. Greg Jones was 34-2 & won the NCAA's at 174 as a freshman. One of the best college wrestlers that no one ever mentions. If I remember correctly, he only gave up 10 takedowns in his 4 year career.
  17. That's funny. Eric Guerrero from Oklahoma State has been doing that years. Make a trip to their wrestling room & let him know what you think about that style. Just give us an address of the nearest hospital where we can send you flowers during your recovery.
  18. Does Stephen Neal get any votes here? One of the best heavyweights of all time.
  19. That's right it was Tao. My brain was thinking ahead to Futrell.
  20. I was at the tournament on Friday with my 12 & 11 year old boys. We really enjoyed watching a great tournament. We watched the match with Emeev & I believe Futrell. The match ended with a tech fall for Emeev but he injured his neck & was taken from the tournament on a back board & stretcher. I came to the message board to see if there was any word on his condition. We prayed for him as he was laying on the mat. My boys were very impressed with Emeev's wrestling ability but also with his sportsmanship & demeanor. Several other observationsfrom the tournament are : India is improving at an alarming rate - they have several physical specimens with good technique but crap those guts are beasts physically (maybe our guys need to eat more curry!). Disappointing numbers of spectators - I cannot condemn here because as a former HS head coach - I couldn't make this tournament before this year either. Coleman Scott severely tweaked his knee against Futrell & could have easily said no go to finish the match as he could barely walk. He continued & got beat - he couldn't produce any offense on one leg, but my boys loved the fact thAt he continued to battle despite the injury. Many times a challenge brick is thrown, the head referee throws it back at the coach, kind of saying how dare you challenge my authority on the mat. This has been & still is an issue with freestyle refs & their seeming need to be jerks in matches. We laughed every time a coach grabbed a brick & tossed it right back at the ref, in one case the coach & rev threw it back & forth 3x. Brandon Slay threw it back out & yelled at the ref don't throw the brick back, I can challenge if I want to! Lastly, the female ref was horrible & seemed to be going miles out of her way to try to establish her control over coaches. She.needs to find another way to help wrestling but not try to ref the men's matches. Actually one more thing. Don't complain about of refs as a lot of the international refs are much much worse!
  21. Even more astounding than his 189-0 record is that he was unescorted upon in his career. Not one single point scored by his opponents! I don't care if he was 189-0 in 1st-6th grade, to not give up a single point in 189 matches is mind boggling. Best of all time.
  22. Wrestled Rex Holman (OHIO STATE/Arizona State - national champ) & Chris barnes (oklahoma state 2x national champ) at junior nationals in waterloo iowa in 1985 - didn't know it at the time but that was one crappy draw - did win 4 matches between butt kickings though.
  23. Yes, clearly neither Tom or Terry Brands or others on the staff have competed at a high level of wrestling at the DI level. Might be better to actually think about your post before it is made. You probably aren't able to do that when speaking with your lips but using a keyboard as your voice allows to to not look like an idiot with your posts.
