  1. No. The amount of time, talent, energy, and focus it takes to earn (just) All-American status is astounding. Win it all and you've earned something special - never a disappointment.
  2. Unsure if you’re being snarky but I will say that I always think about this point when people want to add 10 to 20 teams to D1 wrestling.
  3. Hello, rain. Meet Parade. I hate it when you state facts, Mr. Bryant.
  4. We're not all a-holes. But some do exist.
  5. Knew it but clicked anyway. Like a dog returning to its vomit...
  6. I'd be amazed if Jason Layton does not have a YouTube step-by-step demonstration of this technique.
  7. Personally, I am all for the expansion of NCAA wrestling programs. The one thing that needs to occur is evidence of viability for the sport within the conference. The ACC is showing that evidence this year. The one issue I see is Duke's demise. That program is flirting with extinction. Perhaps a better route to take before mandating that the entire conference take on the sport is to reinstate programs that had success in the past (Syracuse, Clemson) or, better yet, bring on programs that are in an area of higher level recruiting (Louisville - close to OH, IN, and IL, or again, Syracuse) as a way to set them up for success. As an add-on to this point, my guess is athletic directors do not want to be told by higher-ups that their already-thin budget is about to incur another program. That is a good way to start things off on the wrong foot. But if it does occur, circle back to my first point which is teams have to be their number one promoter and fundraiser. Sadly, even if a team has show sustainability through their efforts, it is not a guarantee.
  8. Do you really think this dual meet will be that entertaining? After 141, things drop off rather quickly.
  9. Thursday (today, 2/6/20) Navy at George Mason, 7:00 PM Edinboro at Lock Haven, 7:00 PM Fresno State at Wyoming, 9:00 PM (7:00 PM)
  10. Unfortunately for Maryland, there are better versions of shorts out there. They are an Under Armour school so they'll get what UA gives. I am more of a singlet guy but do not mind the move to a two-piece (if teams are wanting it). Compression tops with shorts would be my first choice after the singlet, and then compression top with compression bottoms last. I think as the trend sublimated gear grows, we'll see more teams add it in to the rotation (much like a 3rd jersey in other sports). From there, more designs, which will lead to more teams adding them. Especially at the high school ranks where gear is king. :-)
  11. The fact that Lee didn't even secure the takedown until 1 minute and 35 seconds into the first period makes it all the more remarkable! NF-4 = game changer
  12. What weight will Cox wrestle at the Olympic Trials?
