  1. ask some of the older posters here what early '70s national champ at 134 Don Rohn benched. if using 303 as the world record I can with good confidence say there's a few 133/141 guys off season who can do that touch and go. now if you look at the actual real all time record of well over 400 at 132 then nah.
  2. ok that 134/142 guy might have weighed 150 or more when he maxed on bench. world record meaning competition bench is paused, butt flat, etc versus what might have been a touch and go slight arch from the 134/142 guy. And what world record listing are you looking at? they're are a ton of powerlifting feds out there and I bet you can find a raw record at 132 or whatever the current weight classes may be that if significantly higher than that.
  3. did Guerrero medal senior level? Bono? Not sure about Rosado either.
  4. fair enough, and good info. I hope the guy is healthy enough to prove it one way or the other this season, and regardless, what he overcame and his run that NCAA tourney are as you said not to be brushed off.
  5. Hokie that's an apples to oranges comparison. Conel's unseeded run to 3rd came off a 10 or so losses regular season, think he may not have even won the MAC tourney, vs Epperly getting 3rd after being an AA the year prior. and Epperly was then 4 seed in his blood round loss final season of competing. hardly a 'one good tournament guy'. time will tell if Conel goes down as one hit wonder or not.
  6. fwiw, found this article: https://www.pennlive.com/sports/2018/02/penn_state_wrestlers_able_to_s.html one noteworthy quote: "We have a great strength program, our guys are strong,'' Sanderson said during some limited down time last fall. "We're working our tails off in the weight room. Lifting is very important to us." article also does mention training being very individualized
  7. True frosh Pletcher had a pretty solid year at 141 when pressed into duty and being more a 133 than a 141. I reckon he’ll do ok if that’s the weight he goes this year.
  8. How many years in a row of 3+ AAs is it for Cornell now?
  9. given Metcalf is an assistant coach at ISU I have a hard time thinking of him as the face of Iowa wrestling.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. Andre Metzger had world finishes of 2, 3, 3, 4 and did not make an Olympic team.
  14. Greg Gibson had 3 world freestyle medals and did not make an Olympic freestyle team. He did make the '84 Greco team.
  15. yup, his last NCAA tournament was '90 so Cross was maybe 24 at the '92 Games?
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. University of Washington had the guy who beat Gable, Larry Owings
  19. 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
  20. I dunno, Imar digs in that underhook and goes flying maybe
  21. 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
