    smitty11 got a reaction from JHRoseWrestling in Jamill Kelly - Relieved of Duties?   
    Not sure about Zeke... He took Tsirtsis in when he was done.  Got him another year and then Tsirtsis was an all American his last year with him.  Tsirtsis said in his interview Zeke did so much for him after all the tragedies in his life. 
     
    Willie wanting to credit for breaking news and being passive aggressive is stupid.

    smitty11 got a reaction from jon in Does anybody honestly believe Zain could hang with Metcalf   
    I like Metcalf 3-2.  I love how everyone says Metcalf was a hothead. When Zain wrestled Pico he tried to punch him.  Pico dominated Zain

    smitty11 got a reaction from drag it in Jason Tsirtsis- Flo Interview   
    His story was heartbreaking.  What a comeback at ASU to AA his last year.  Good interview on Flo if you haven't watched.

    Micic at 57 has been pretty good. He was hurt at NCAA last year. 57 is tough

    Jason Tsirtsis sister passed in a tragic car accident where the person who was driving flew a curb at high speeds on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.  Then a month later his best friend since first grade passed away unexpectedly with a heart attack.  That happened in the late summer and early fall of his junior season at NW.  Then at the end of junior season he got a D+ and missed by one percentage point, needed a C-, to be eligible to wrestle his senior year.  That had nothing to do with NCAA eligibililty requirements.  Nothing of this was self imposed IMO.  After that wrestling did not seem to be on his priority list.  He seemed to get out of shape and we all know it is hard to come back to wrestling after you get out of shape.  He isn't nearly the same wrestler he once was, but that was great seeing him beat NW yesterday.  That had to feel great for him.  Good luck to him!!!

    Did Maruca beat Tsirtsis out for the spot?  I didn't see anything on this but saw Maruca wrestled against UNC.

    Tsirtsis did go through some really rough times.  He has not looked good since his sophomore year.  Kid used to be a beast in freestyle and this summer was getting beat pretty easy by wrestlers he used to tech.  Seemed like he lost the passion for the sport.  Surprised he just didn't finish out at NW and get that degree.  Hope he can make a comeback and have a good senior year and AA.

    I don't always understand flo and their reporting on wrestling.  Pariano getting fired or leaving we still don't know.  You are telling me Flo does not know what happened?  Why have they never reported on this?  This was a big deal.  But they want to be the first to give a story out about this.  I have not problem with them reporting about Marstellar, but they should have done some work and got to the bottom of what happened with Pariano at Northwestern.

    I think sueflohn can win it all.  He dominated grajales last year.  Sueflohn a bad matchup for a little 149's.

    smitty11 got a reaction from ohcomeon in Hunter Stieber   
    Well said! Just hope he can continue to wrestle.  He wrestled great at the Pan Am over the summer.  Will be interesting what weight he goes next year.  He seems like he did a lot of work to get himself to 149 but 141 seems to be his natural weight.
     
    It did seem in early Feb that they were going to sit him the rest of the year.  I am sure the family and Hunter had something to say about that.  Hard to lose an entire season and not compete for the championship.  
     
    I was also amazed at how Ruggerilo had him screaming in pain the entire second period then in the 3rd period Hunter gets two takedowns with two shot arms.

    tsirtsis is 1 for 1 against Stieber.  I think Stieber wins the next 4 matches.  Surprised he did not wrestle he looked against Bietz and Nelson.  H. Stieber with two more weeks could win this weight.

    I will also say Tsirtsis did not refuse to shake hands like the OP said.  Shook Sorensen's had right away after the ride out
