  1. Shoulda responded directly/quoted NJDan but otherwise hammerlock sorry if I missed the point. Thx for keeping me in line.
  2. Zain should have played basketball he was like 6’4” right.
  3. yep no short guy ever gets backs.
  4. ....’should be’ right? Like Hall or Taylor or going back Kolat....it’s a long way to 4 no knock on Brooks, might get it done but damn it’s still a feat to be in the mix 4x, much less actually stand at top of podium start to finish
  5. slightly surprised we haven't seen a 'WVU should be in the top 10 every year' post yet.
  6. KTG119


    141 ain't too shabby. if they make finals, does Pletcher repeat recent victory over Demas?
  7. It was the year they were going for ten in a row. Billy Kelly from Iowa St pinned him with a spladle. You can probably find on YouTube.
  8. 125 Strittmatter and 133 Juergens was a pretty nice combo for the two years Strittmatter was at Iowa. In 2000 they were both seeded 1st, Strittmatter placed 3rd, Juergens won it. 2001 they both wrestled to seed, Strittmatter placing 2nd to Abas and Juergens repeating as champ.
  9. in '84 at least a kimura got Mark Schultz a dq loss (but he still won Gold)
  10. Letters and DS for sure. McDonough and Delgado come to mind as well. Back to DS and TobusRex's commentary on boring style. I looked it up- Freshman year he was 42-1 4 pins, 14 majors, 10 techs so 28 of 42 were bonus wins, 2/3 of wins by bonus. Soph year he was 37-1 2 pins 2 majors 9 techs so 13 of 37 closer to one of every 3 wins by bonus. pretty significant drop off. and yeah agree some of it was guys figuring him out. Gillespie wrestled a very tactical (some might have called it stalling) match to beat him.
  11. He definitely seemed to wrestle more conservatively his soph year, not sure he if he was already battling injuries by then or not, know it got bad towards the end. 1st year he seemed to open up a bit more, he was pretty slick
  12. Schlatter did have the one loss early his freshman season but man what a season it was. Seemed like the next 4 timer in the making.
  13. Mich St was 2nd that year to Iowa St who also had 3 champs. Mich St won their only team title in '67
  14. that's crazy! and from the photo looks like he def earned every one of those.
  15. wow it's almost like this kid is a....Brands http://wrestlingforgable.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=1987-11-30T13%3A08%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=1 'I typically go 50-50 with either of them for the first 20 minutes of wrestling. But they don't get tired. They will almost get your leg, and almost get your leg, and almost get your leg, and eventually they'll get your leg. Then they'll get it again. And again. And again. It is highly annoying.'
  16. John Fisher beating returning 2x champ and Olympic Silver Medalist Barry Davis.
  17. And hey I am very glad how it’s worked out in Blacksburg.
  18. Hence my question to your comment ‘at will’. Every situation, fan reaction is not the same.
  19. HokieHWT would you said same when Metcalf and rest left Tech?
  20. They’ve definitely had some tough guys place as freshmen where it looked pretty good for a 4 timer career - Dance, Epperly, Chiscko come to mind but for various reasons didn’t happen - really hoping McFadden gets it done.
