  1. I wrestled in the same open tournament as Hanrahan a while back (different weight classes). I was in my early 30s and he must have been early 40s at the time. Hanrahan schooled the younger comp and left with a gold medal. I wrestled a 22 year old and left with a torn meniscus and hairline fracture of my tibia.
  2. Chertow was pushing 140 about two days after his last match at 118 in the late 80s. Guessing a tad higher these days.
  3. Google ‘wrestling for gable’ Bit of ambition there and just a great blog overall.
  4. I think Carl Perry was considered pretty top notch coming out of HS. 3 timer, Fargo champ (I think), Beast winner, etc. C Stayor actually never made AA. Rd of 12 his last year back at ODU was best finish. Overall, yes pretty crazy that between Bond, Martin, D and J Frishkorn, and C Staylor, all elite types coming out of HS, that there is only 1 AA honor. Daniel Frishkorn as you noted possibly would have earned more but for the health situation.
  5. Matt Brown PSU was pretty ambitious if we are talking outstanding performance on and off the mat as well. https://www.collegian.psu.edu/archives/article_aef03b3d-e58e-574c-b91b-9c3d09324c6f.html
  6. one article link: https://intermatwrestle.com/articles/9716 and an excerpt from that article: Nick Amuchastegui's academic accomplishments may well outshine his success on the mat. He is a two-time winner of the NCAA Elite 88 Award, presented to the wrestler competing at the national championships with the highest grade point average. In addition, he is a first-team Academic All-American, and Capital One/CoSIDA Men's At-Large Academic All-American of the Year Impressive as those academic honors are, Amuchastegui has been singularly focused on making the most of his time at Stanford. He completed his undergraduate degree in the school's highly-ranked mechanical engineering program in just three years ... and is now finishing up his graduate work for a master's degree, concentrating on the subjects of thermodynamics and mechatronics.
  7. major oversight. you could even argue that he is better than the top three I listed (Perry, Tucker, Jenkins) despite never having won a title.
  8. yep and then beat Mann 4-3 in finals.
  9. Ed also lost 3 times his senior year.
  10. not a Michigan expert my any means but Donahoe or Reader maybe?
  11. blind at this early hour, sorry.
  12. hate that he beat Staylor for the title, but yeah, top notch.
  13. as you listed multiple possibilities at various weights, don't forget to consider all time Iowa winning % guy TJ Williams at 149/157 or 150/157. My Iowa choices would be Metcalf and Lincoln Mac, but TJ def gets an HM along with guys like Heffernan, McGinness, etc.
  14. Doug Wyland too another orthopedic doc after a very successful wrestling career.
  15. too lazy to do the all time thing and ain't picking winners but some dream matches for me: 126/133: PSU either Dr Jim Martin or Abe (both 1x champs, 4 x AAs with all being top 4 places) versus Terry Brands 142/149: Zain vs Metcalf 150/157: Nolf versus Lincoln McIlravy
  16. is that Newby you're thinking of? vague recall that he wanted to concentrate on music?
  17. 2000 onward. Dropping those guys I think Cody Sanderson is on your list.
  18. Virginia has had three champs in the 2000s (pretty sure anyway) so that makes at pretty simple then: Carl Perry Byron Tucker Bubba Jenkins HM: Stith, Dance, Epperly, Frishkorn ??
  19. as far as I understand Manville's goals, it makes perfect sense for him to take the Olympic year and make his run at the team spot. As for any gaming of the system to prolong eligibility and possibly maybe have a spot in the PSU line-up, meh.
  20. major untapped potential in free for sure but I thought he placed much lower the year he made world team?
  21. I believe he took a greyshirt year, then a regular redshirt.
