  1. Gerry and Stephen Abas wrestled for Fresno St Some NCAA champs at Cal St Bakersfield besides Neal include the Cuestas brothers, Jesse Reyes, Joe Gonzalez, and John Azevedo. Those late 70s/early 80s CSB teams were really good.
  2. think uww has that one listed incorrectly. for some reason I can't get it to link right this sec, but google Dellagatta wrestling and you'll find a video of he and Sergei wrestling in the '81 world cup. it appears that he is representing the USA. Sergei wins this one but in the description of the video, it says he lost to Ricky the week before.
  3. yes I had started typing some of that about the Japanese opponent at 136; he was young but ended up with a nice resume. agreed Smith would have been favored but think Dellegatta and Burley would have been tough tests for him as well. Dellegatta had some impressive wins (beat Sergei B I think) though not in world championships.

    Askren KOed in 5 seconds

    as a group I think most mom's would be less than enthusiastic about MMA for their kids....Bo's mom said "I don’t have any doubts about how well he’ll do in a cage fight. It’ll be bad for that other guy.” https://onwardstate.com/2019/04/03/penn-state-wrestlings-bo-nickal-could-be-great-at-mma/ somehow I doubt Bo (or his mom's) confidence was deflated too much by Ben going down.
  5. given the boycott in '84, I always wondered if any of those 4 guys would have won the gold if they were the rep. of course same is prob true at other weights where we won gold in '84....i.e. I'd have bet on Kemp to win at 163 if he was our rep (though the German opponent was one of the better guys the US had to go through to win a class).

    Mt Rushmore for your state

    Yep Blatnik def benefitted from the Soviet led boycott, even with Karelin being a few years away. Blatnik wrestled a great tournament though, and was a great story during those Games. Led the US group in closing ceremonies iirc.

    Was Karelin on the senior scene in ‘84?

    '...he was never the consistent winner either.' can you explain that a bit more?

    Ed and Lou both won gold medals in ‘84. Ed was a 3 time NCAA champ and Lou won 2.
  13. dominated several times during the season? he lost 4 matches total. the losses besides pin in NCAA finals were 3-2, 2-1, and 4-1.
  14. yep, far as I know he and Larkin from Ariz St are the only ones to do that.

    Teasdale at Iowa?

    sorry if I've missed this, is Teasdale actually taking summer classes at Iowa at this point or just working out in the room?
