  1. Bobby Weaver was already out of college when he won his Gold Medal in 1984.
  2. 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.
  3. Bajrang medaled at 65kg in the two most recent World Championships so you may have "thought" he looked small, but his results say othewise.
  4. 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.
  5. Thanks, I read 2x AA and my brain heard 2x Champ. In any case he was pretty impressive.
  6. Two time D3 NCAA Champ. Still I thought RBY would handle him easier than he did.
  7. Yep, rode him for all of 3 seconds. LOL
  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. 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.
  11. Good point. Q just popped into my head without thinking about it.
  12. 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.
  13. Dan Hodge was never taken down in college. Bill Koll was only taken down once. There are probably others, but it is certainly rare.
  14. Sold out last year at Minnesota where the arena holds over 14K.
  15. Well, college wrestling programs are not flush with donors as every school operates in the red. You are right that the donors are mostly the same people. Not sure why that would create a conflict. The RTCs also raise money thru camps, clinics, etc.
  16. Track has 19 individual events plus 2 relays and Cross Country needs 7 scoring runners and men's T&F/XC gets a total of 12.6 ships, so me thinks you are WAY off base with that one. Obviously, FB, and BB (both men's and women's) get way more ships than they really need.
  17. The NLWC is fully funded by donations, etc. and receives no money from USA Wrestling of the USA government so this entire thread is moot.
  18. There is an NCAA imposed limit to how many official coaches you can have. However, he can be an athlete in training for the Storm and still work out with the Gophers, effectively making him an additional coach.
  19. Matthews won't be eligible this season for Edinboro unless Clarion grants him a release. If that has already happened I haven't heard about it.
  20. The OP did not just celebrate Caldwell's performance, he also used it to take a cheap shot at DT. Did you not notice that?
  21. i ran this through google translate and got nothing. can anyone interrupt for me? thanks! It's kind of hard to interrupt someone on a message board. :lol:
  22. They could still get an at large since they could have been bronze status. Plus also being proposed is another set of coaches rankings after the conference tournaments so a wrestler that wins the Big 12 tourney could move up in status.
  23. Is that true because the NCAA rules don't say that. However, the Ivy rules may say that. As to the Big 12 it sounds like what the Committee is trying to do is force the Big 12 to merge with another conference to form a viable qualifying event.
  24. I would assume they'll be treated as conference (co)-champs just like you would expect them to. Yes, which makes me wonder how the other schools would respond when Nebraska is claiming they are dual champions despite possibly being the 5th best dual team in the conference. The Big Ten dual schedule makes no sense (to me). It is clear the conference doesn't value the dual portion of the season too much. Nebraska won't CLAIM they are dual champs, the BIG will. I do agree that the conference and the schools for the most part don't pay much attention to who wins the regular season dual title since it doesn't really mean much. Kind of like winning the regular season title in bball. It's nice and it gets you the #1 see for the B1G tournament, but the tournament results is what everyone pays attention to.
  25. At most of these schools, athletic funding is largely derived through student fees. Interestingly, CSU-Fullerton has the largest enrollment of all the non-football schools... Jason makes a very good point because except for about 50 schools in the BS BcS conferences every other school that has football LOSES MONEY on football, and therefore, has less money to spend on other sports.
