    MSU158 got a reaction from TheOhioState in Sammy Sasso wins Freshman of the Year   
    It has a ton also to do with who you beat. 
    Sasso had wins over the #1,7,8,9 and 10 seeds also having beaten 2 of the 3 guys he lost 2. He also, admittedly gained the benefit of basically ignoring the “fluky” loss by fall. 
    Brooks had wins over # 6,7 and 11 while only wrestling 16 matches. Sasso wrestled 27.
    I find it a bit funny that you argue 18 matches for Lee not being enough while endorsing a guy with less matches in this case......

    MSU158 got a reaction from bnwtwg in Final NCAA Most Dominant   
    He was on a pitch count going into those 2 weeks. That was said before hand. In fact, he wasn’t going to wrestle Midlands at all, but they did the math and wanted to make sure he had enough matches by the end of the season to have an RPI. I can guarantee you it had nothing to do with avoiding a guy he has beat 18-2 and 12-6 or the other he beat this year 15-0 and 16-2.

    MSU158 got a reaction from SetonHallPirate in Best College Wrestler to Never Start for His Team   
    Jaggers comes to mind. He spent the regular season slowly managing his weight with the sole purpose of peaking in March. As a result, how he should be seeded for B1Gs and NCAA’s was  a super hot topic his last 2 seasons. 
    The guy was simply a different wrestler in March!

    Jeremiah Tobias of Michigan.  Now head coach at Alma.
    4X Michigan High School State Champ.
    Set the single season(17) and career(57) fall record for Uof M from 01-05, mainly wrestling and winning opens like MSU, EMU and Cleveland State.
    Sat behind Mike Kulczycki as a RSfreshman(01-02) at 149.  Mike would get the 6th seed and finish R12 losing in the quarters and R12.
    Sat behind Ryan Churella as a RSSO(02-03) at 149.  Ryan would go 2-2 as a RSFR.
    Sat behind Ryan Churella as a RSJR(03-04) at 149.  Ryan would take 3rd as a RSSO.
    Sat behind Eric Tannenbaum as a RSSR(04-05) at 149.  Eric would take 4th as a RSFR

    MSU158 reacted to ptz305 in Pat Lugo Appreciation Post   
    Of all the wrestlers, my heart breaks the most for Pat Lugo. Despite being a Fargo finalist, he flew under the radar going into college. He took a chance by transferring from Edinboro to Iowa when many said he could not make the line-up.  He worked his tail off to become a starter and then an AA. This year he looked like a completely different wrestler. He opened up on his feet and improved on the mat. He looked poised to take home the title. I can not believe that this is how his year will end. Dude is a hammer.

    MSU158 got a reaction from jchapman in No fans at NCAAs   
    No worries.  I don't mean to make it ever personal on here.  That is why I try really hard to not to delve into the name calling and such.  I will stringently debate and do like to bait certain people from time to time.  But, it is all meant in good fun.  When you love to talk wrestling you just are very limited in person.  Hell, nearly all my friends and relatives wrestled.  Maybe a handful of them will talk wrestling for more than 5 minutes and maybe half of them follow it enough to really have a conversation with(and those are mainly at the High School and Youth level due to coaching or running clubs).

    Speaking of "thinking for yourself":  Name calling speaks to a lack of thought of the situation and a lack of concern of how the situation will resolve itself. The study of psychology teaches us that when someone resorts to name calling, it usually speaks to feelings of inferiority and a feeling of inadequacy of the person doing the name calling.

    The NBA is a business with mega millionaire athletes and I don’t see them benefiting from playing without fans paying to watch.  With a player testing positive it was bound to happen. 
    I am not sure that the above directly reflects on 1 final event of a college sports season.

    It is possible, but it hinges upon Kemerer getting a year for medical hardship.  But, if it happens, I fully expect all 10 starters to be returning AA's.
    125-Lee-CHECK
    133-DeSanto-CHECK
    141-Murin/Eierman -will need Murin to AA this year, but will be back next year-POSSIBLE CHECK/CHECK
    149-Murin/Eierman-see 141-POSSIBLE CHECK/CHECK
    157-Young- There is no way Brands is going 157 or he would have been instead of filling in at 184.-CHECK
    165-Marinelli-CHECK
    174-Kemerer-LIKELY CHECK
    184-Assad-see 141-POSSIBLE CHECK
    197-Warner-CHECK
    285-Cassioppi-see 141
     
    If I had to guess, I would say they return 9.  I think either Assad or Murin does not AA.

    I am sorry, but even adding the  people that would have been in attendance to the streamership, is NOT going to remotely compare to the International volume those 2 events get!  NOT EVEN CLOSE!
