    Kurt was very good. He was quick for a heavyweight and crafty too. 

    He won’t go down as one of our best, but arguably that is due to injury. If he had been able to stay the course he may have won more golds. 

    it's still a relatively short list of USA wrestlers who have Olympic and World gold, Kurt's one of our best in my book.

    The Zavoral book is outstanding.  I read it every couple of years.  Not just a great wrestling book but a great book, period, which is why I think even Iowa haters should consider reading it.


    Agreed, outstanding book. I read it again fairly often as well. my copy is beat all to hell.

    Yes - He is on the roster for Iowa his sophomore year but there were no results. That is most likely the result of his suspension. At that time Iowa had Morningstar and Borschel at 165 and 174. So in the end - true freshman juco nat. champ, redshirt, sophomore no results, junior NCAA qualifier, Senior 5th at NCAA. 

    from the oregon state bio I linked earlier


    Lettered one year at Iowa as a redshirt sophomore under head coach Tom Brands at 165 pounds ... Went 9-2 ... Won the 165 pound title at Flash Flanagan and Grand View Opens ... Five of his nine wins were bonus point matches.

    Darmstadt At 184?!? How tall is he...6’4 or 6’5”? He’d have to be the tallest 184 pounder in NCAA history. I wonder why he’d do that? 

    Mitch Clark maybe same height wrestling at 177 under the old weigh-in rules. Mark Branch same era at 167 might have been in that height range too.

    You listen to the internet? I seem to recall reading about a guy who listened to his neighbor's god and started shooting people in New York. 

    Since we’re having fun with word choices, ‘his neighbor’s god’?

    My predictions will make some assumptions on oly shirts which ofc some are still unknown.


    125 - arujau (lee does NOT redshirt)

    133 - gross if 100% healthy suriano if he's at even 90% (fix and micic shirt)

    141 - nick lee (eirmann and Yianni shirt)

    149 - sasso makes a big statement in his first campaign. 149 is wide open next year

    157 - hidlay's time has come though I think pantaleo will challenge him

    165 - marinelli grits out a gold over a super tough field. Ofc at this weight he could also place 8th

    174 - amine gets it done as a senior (hall shirts)

    184 - zahid bumps up and wins number 3

    197 - moore gets it done as a senior

    285 - cassar wins his second (gable shirts)

    Team prediction: penn state, iowa, tosu, osu

    157 Pantaleo is done
