  1. My apologies, for some reason I was thinking Nick Roberts and Courts came in as 4xers
  2. Very earlier on in Kenny's OSU career, freshman year I think, high up OSU brass referred to him to me as 'soft'. MUCH more was expected at OSU from a 4 time PA champ.

    Who can backflip better than Gable Steveson?

    Can't seem to find video of it, but Adam Coon did a backflip, I believe it was NCAA 2015 maybe after semi-final victory and I swear it shook the building when he landed.

    Suriano MFF out of B1G

    The difference between Nolf and Suriano at this point is that Suriano actually took the mat vs Lizak (90% sure on that, somebody will correct me if I'm wrong). Stopping early in a match seems much more serious than forfeiting prior to protect further injury. Nolf also has some separation between himself and the pack talent-wise, where an injury for Suriano even if he can go, likely drops him out of AA contention. Corrected: It seems Suriano did not take the mat

    Tom Ryan accepts your apologies

    I see you mock. Quality contribution.

    Tom Ryan accepts your apologies

    They're cowards so I'll do it for them: the following are very sorry for consistently starting untrue rumors and generally having very little actual knowledge about the things coming out of their mouths. iGrandby Yes, Pletcher will likely sit against Micic. We all know why - sorry Tom. (Im a buckeye fan, but I also accept reality) If he does wrestle, Its a coin flip. Winner is my pick to get wrecked by Gross in the NCAA finals. Although, the result could obviously flip at Big Tens and/or nationals. My reply to iGrandby: You are clearly an idiot. Tell you what, if Pletcher sits vs. Micic I will come on here, bash Ryan for seed protecting, apologize to you, claim you a genius, and I will never post on this board again. But, when Pletcher does wrestle you should come on here and apologize, and admit you are an idiot, and in the future point out to others that Tom Ryan and seed protection is a myth.

    How do you prepare for a giant like Adam Coon?

    You are correct, Coon is much to large to go into space, but he is no idiot and knows this. He has stated that he wants to be a part of the engineering side. But, the kid has big dreams. I also heard he wants to see if he can play football.

    How do you prepare for a giant like Adam Coon?

    Yeah, I think that is obvious to everyone. Guess it is my fault that you felt you needed to point that out by the way I started the thread. I mean if I said JO was going to Cornell so Yianni can train better for x. That would be silly. My point was just that a world and Olympic champ/badass would be training at OSU to the benefit of many, but specifically Snyder and Moore. And as an aside, it would certainly help in hiÅ› preparation for Coon.
  9. If you're a small heavyweight like Kyle Synder how do you prepare for a giant heavyweight like Adam Coon? 1) You wrestle with and get coached by Tervel Dlagnev And 2) (from Snyder's Twitter) Big news! 2x World and Olympic Champion Taha Akgul will be training at the Ohio RTC for the month of February. Thankful for a coaching staff that does everything they can to provide the greatest training environment possible. @tahaakgul https://t.co/F92ZBrBcUK

    Get on Kanen Storrs Twitter

    Was impressed when Dresser brought in an all-star coaching staff. My one question was if Metcalf had the temperament to coach. This one incident isn't enough for me to form a final opinion, but it does reflect poorly on him.

    Nickerson in his prime vs 125 field?

    Seeing that Tomasello had multiple win over Megaludis I would say it is easy to leave him out. Not that he wasnt great

    Cleveland ticket brokers

    Last time I went to a Browns game we got 4 tickets on the fifty yrd line, just about the best seats in the house for $20, that's total, not per ticket. We got them from a scalper and I thought for sure they must be fake

    T THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN!!! Only message board jockeys like yourself repeat it over and over. ZERO examples of actual seed protection by Ryan. People are just so used to seeing other people say it every time someone sits out that people assume it must be a thing. Zero people cries seed protection when Brands set out Kemmerer and Stoll this year. People from other schools sit out all the time, nothing is said. An OSU guy could get run over by a lawn mower and they are somehow dodging competition. There is not a single guy in tOSU current starting lineup that is afraid of anyone else in their weight.

    Rooms at Cleveland

    Kind of goes without saying, but it is so awesome. A couple of years ago in St. Louis I took a non-wrestling friend of mine. He had so much fun that this year he bought my ticket and we're going again. Something I recommend if you can get away with it, from time to time change seats, it is insane the people you come across. I could write a book about the conversations I've had in the stands at NCAA, legends, coaches of legends, families...one common thread--they all love wrestling.
