  1. This is a bit of an over exaggeration even if I do agree with the conclusion. Do you consider the goal of judo to maim the opponent? Is it immoral? I think submission wrestling is where it should be; on the club level. Lots of MMA and jujitsu clubs. Some colleges practice no gi at club level. A bunch have judo as more competitive ventures. Changing wrestling to a submission sport won't improve or offer much you can't already find elsewhere in some shape or form for entertainment and/or participation.
  2. I'm not a hater at all. I'm actually a Rutgers fan. I didn't say he was a villain; only that he was chippy and had been penalized for it. The finger guns was a funny way to showboat and mock the opponent's mascot. I'm not saying he is a bad person. He isn't and was the face of a team that wrestled with a chip on their shoulders following years of being called soft. He wasn't the best sport but either are lots of wrestlers. I think he is reasonable addition but admit he would be far down this hypothetical list. Anyone remember the time Massa flexed at the Brands brothers? That move alone should get some consideration.
  3. May have been a headbutt actually. I can't remember. He was definitely a chippy wrestler
  4. How about the left hook he threw at Jack?
  5. I think his Dad charging the mat and challenging a wrestler at a high school match has caused some of the hostility. I could be wrong...
  6. Rick wouldn't care what the public thinks, though Morty likely would. I love the reference! Nothing about the alleged choke-out looks dirty or intentional to me.
  7. Is this really about alcohol or a gross lack of empathy sprinkled with a touch of bystander effect? Would things have been different if they were all sober?
  8. I'm also a fan. My least favorite posters are the ones responding to him by including nonwrestling related nonsense. I couldn't care less about his bets. I just want to read about wrestling. He gets discussions going
  9. Hmmm what does this mean for Aguilar?
  10. I really don't see how changing scholastic to free is somehow going to lead to more "professional" opportunities. I much prefer Folk regardless. Switching styles would cost fans. Those fans don't need to be reeducated or assimilated. Most college fans have had some sort of exposure to freestyle despite the constant arguments that if we only understood it better we would appreciate it more. Props to the poster who made the connection to soccer fans! It is totally the same kinda thing here.
  11. The scary thing is someone can be asymptomatic and still be carrying. I know there are people who think it is all overblown, but this seems like a nightmare to try to contain. Thanks for the info Lurker
  12. Did the check and clear include a test? I didn't think tests were readily available. Was the staff associated with Nebraska? I'm not fishing for a conspiracy. I'm genuinely curious what the protocol is. How are they determining someone is safe to enter?
  13. Important detail that managed to be left out of the stories I read. Thanks for the update.
  14. Yeah, he was released. Nevertheless, he felt awful and attended an event filled with people including his own staff and players. Normally we would understand and maybe even commend this but these aren't normal circumstances. No matter how often it is repeated to stay home if you aren't feeling well, I doubt people are just going to remove themselves from the national tournament. They may not even consciously decide to ignore symptoms as much as refuse to lose focus on their goals. I don't think coaches and athletes can self police themselves on this.
  15. Look at the Nebraska basketball coach leaving mid game to go to the hospital tonight (**may have nothing at all to do with Corona virus**). The point is that nobody is going to self quarantine and stay home because they aren't feeling well. Not even coaches.
  16. Just parroting what others are saying at this point. I have heard these same conspiracy theories since this started. Maybe they can have Alex Jones weigh in as a guest caller!
  17. I think edge of the mat takedowns and wrestling for takedowns in general is more exciting than pushouts (unless a scoring table gets in the way...). I get freestyle fans see it differently. I know they sigh and groan everytime action goes out of bounds but many folk fans sigh and groan when watching freestyle and seeing someone run an opponent off the mat when they have a single elevated. I'm not sure one preference is objectively any more valid than the other. I actually like the new rules in folk despite the inconsistency.
  18. How so? He wrestled both RBY and Gross in close losses this weekend and is in the mix for a coveted AA placement. Was there a point this season where he was >/= to either of them?
  19. To be fair, RBY (twice) and Gross barely beat Aragona too.
  20. I know there is a Rutgers contingent that think Seabass could graduate and transfer to New Brunswick for his final season. (Not sure this makes sense with Suriano in limbo and Alvarez progressing well but with redshirts and juggling weight classes, who knows?). Anyway, the New Jersey shout outs post match have to make you wonder.
  21. Well, if only a handful of viewers were having trouble than perhaps I am being unreasonable. I try to be objective. The problem may have been on our end though I have Fios and haven't had issues in the past watching multiple mats. I stream other media fairly often without issue. It is what it is. I'm finished complaining about it. Looking forward to the big tournament!
  22. Not to say there wasn't a fix for this. There may very well have been. I just couldn't figure it out unfortunately. I know I wasn't the only one with this issue.
  23. I was watching in full screen. The only way the graphics were legible this weekend was to watch a single mat. Even splitting just two ways caused issues. Again, I have been watching split screen early round big ten tournament rounds for years. It was never a problem.
