  1. Yep, and I re-watched that match and I don't see how they could have awarded a TD to Gilman's opponent. Total screw job.
  2. Bajrang medaled at 65kg in the two most recent World Championships so you may have "thought" he looked small, but his results say othewise.
  3. It is only recently that any BIG wrestler that didn't place top 8 was granted a spot in the NCAAs. But for 8th place finishers just off the top of my hat Frank Molinaro finished 8th at BIGs and then 8th at NCAAs in 2009 and Mark McKnight finished 8th at BIGs and then 4th at NCAAs in 2008. I'm sure there are other BIG wrestlers that finished 7th or 8th at BIGs and then placed at NCAAs.
  4. Thanks, I read 2x AA and my brain heard 2x Champ. In any case he was pretty impressive.
  5. Two time D3 NCAA Champ. Still I thought RBY would handle him easier than he did.
  6. Yep, rode him for all of 3 seconds. LOL
  7. Iowa has 6, Ed Banach, Tom Brands, Barry Davis, Lincoln McIlvary, Joe Williams, & Jim Zalesky.
  8. Well, it SEEMS as this info came only from steelfrog. In other works he made it up.
  9. But 3 day weigh-ins are very recent, when there are 8 AAs so a semi-finalist is automatically an AA. Even if he missed weight I think he would just forfeit out to 6th place.
  10. That does not change anything. There were still ONLY 200 wrestlers that made the finals in the 2000s. The fact that some of them also made the finals in the 1990s or 2010s does not change that fact.
  11. Basic Math 101. There are 20 wrestlers in the finals each year times 10 years means there are only 200 total finalists in any 10 year period so how can 225 different wrestlers make it to the finals in the 2000s?
  12. What Pinnum said, which IMHO is pretty obvious. Penn State benefits greatly from the NLWC, as does Iowa from the HWC, Cornell from Finger Lakes and so on. It also greatly benefits USA Wrestling and all USA wrestling fans as it allows college wrestlers to continue to compete post college and still make a decent living.
  13. Good point. Q just popped into my head without thinking about it.
  14. I'm sure there are others but right off the bat Quentin Wright finished 6th as a true frosh at 174, then redshirted and finished 1,2 at 184 before winning a 2nd title at 197 as a senior.
