  1. Can’t link it right this sec but ‘88 SI article on John Smith mentions lifting weights every other day as part of his training.
  2. I'm lazy right this sec, who is PSU's 3rd option at 197? I wonder if they might somewhat limit Conel's match count while still preserving Beard's RS option. Who gets some dual meet time under this scenario?
  3. Cal-St Bakersfield late 70s / early 80s was 'lightweight U' with Azevedo and Gonzales and the Cuestas bros. 5 1st places out of 8 finals appearances from that crew.
  4. Andre Metzger had world finishes of 2, 3, 3, 4 and did not make an Olympic team.
  5. Greg Gibson had 3 world freestyle medals and did not make an Olympic freestyle team. He did make the '84 Greco team.
  6. yup, his last NCAA tournament was '90 so Cross was maybe 24 at the '92 Games?
  7. a few others that come to mind: Kevin Darkus World Silver, Joe McFarland World Silver, LeeRoy Smith World Silver and the '84 drama, Tom Erickson 4th in the world stuck behind Big Bruce for many years
  8. they dropped pretty soon after that right? Those SEC schools had some tough guys before they all dropped. A few that come to mind: Kevin Jackson was at LSU before transferring out after they dropped, Kentucky back in the day had Jimmy Carr, Ricky Dellegatta, etc.
  9. University of Washington had the guy who beat Gable, Larry Owings
  10. first SI article I ever read about wrestling https://www.si.com/vault/1981/03/23/825484/lookalikes-do-alike-the-mighty-banach-twins-captured-individual-titles-as-lowa-took-yet-another-ncaa-championship-its-sixth-in-seven-years
  11. I dunno, Imar digs in that underhook and goes flying maybe
  12. Iowa early 80s a couple times Zalesky bros and Banach bros all were AA same year Iowa early 90s a couple times Brands bros and Steiner bros all were AA same year
  13. Chris / Christopher like Rick / Richard Sanders is one who is listed twice on the list dividing the accomplishments. Yep, move ‘em up.
  14. Rick/Richard Sanders should be higher on this list
  15. that was a great match. the 141 semis were pretty darn good too.
  16. How old will Micic be when he competes at ‘21 NCAA tournament? edit-see Smitty basically posted same question. Yeah.
  17. Apedoe VMI-pretty sure he never placed in Va HS state tournament. good stuff.
  18. was there for this one. great tournament coming down to heavyweight deciding team title. of many great memories besides that, Blackford taking top in OT and riding out Heskett in quarters and Quisel's run through consolations to take 3rd stand out.
  19. I honestly don't know what the USA has done in past few world championships in weightlifting, used to casually follow it, but pretty sure the vast majority of the medals were way back, like pre 70s anyway? And any uptick in recent medals is most likely due to women being added.
  20. I assume some of their guys will hit opens if need be to help with NCAA tournament qualifying standards. Not a very high match count here.
