  1. 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.
  2. 2010 made blood round 2011 took 5th, seeded 4th. those were while wrestling for Oregon St
  3. did you miss one of Dieringer's placements?
  4. Since we’re having fun with word choices, ‘his neighbor’s god’?
  5. His year at Blair was post grad? I thought he made the move after junior year of wrestling in Pa.
  6. ok I’m out of the loop, how much did he just win or has earned overall? Cause winning a million and being a millionaire ain’t necessarily the same thing. Or maybe depends on how you define millionaire.
  7. Lehigh Ed is ranked higher than PSU Ed was coming out of HS?
  8. 2000 also had that Slay guy. Boumans was a larger unknown but Slay was not on anybody's radar to make the team prior to US National event that year.
  9. two future world champs in finals at Fargo. wonder how often that has happened? I live in Northern Va so was well aware of Snyder's exploits in Maryland and beyond. I knew less about Cox and was shocked that there was another HS kid that could beat Snyder. Quickly got up to speed on how good JC was/is.
  10. Gerry and Stephen Abas wrestled for Fresno St Some NCAA champs at Cal St Bakersfield besides Neal include the Cuestas brothers, Jesse Reyes, Joe Gonzalez, and John Azevedo. Those late 70s/early 80s CSB teams were really good.
  11. think uww has that one listed incorrectly. for some reason I can't get it to link right this sec, but google Dellagatta wrestling and you'll find a video of he and Sergei wrestling in the '81 world cup. it appears that he is representing the USA. Sergei wins this one but in the description of the video, it says he lost to Ricky the week before.
  12. yes I had started typing some of that about the Japanese opponent at 136; he was young but ended up with a nice resume. agreed Smith would have been favored but think Dellegatta and Burley would have been tough tests for him as well. Dellegatta had some impressive wins (beat Sergei B I think) though not in world championships.
  13. as a group I think most mom's would be less than enthusiastic about MMA for their kids....Bo's mom said "I don’t have any doubts about how well he’ll do in a cage fight. It’ll be bad for that other guy.” https://onwardstate.com/2019/04/03/penn-state-wrestlings-bo-nickal-could-be-great-at-mma/ somehow I doubt Bo (or his mom's) confidence was deflated too much by Ben going down.
  14. given the boycott in '84, I always wondered if any of those 4 guys would have won the gold if they were the rep. of course same is prob true at other weights where we won gold in '84....i.e. I'd have bet on Kemp to win at 163 if he was our rep (though the German opponent was one of the better guys the US had to go through to win a class).
  15. SoCon I’m guessing has a few
  16. Cool not so cool....how many of those schools do not have wrestling.
  17. Yep Blatnik def benefitted from the Soviet led boycott, even with Karelin being a few years away. Blatnik wrestled a great tournament though, and was a great story during those Games. Led the US group in closing ceremonies iirc.
  18. Was Karelin on the senior scene in ‘84?
  19. '...he was never the consistent winner either.' can you explain that a bit more?
  20. Ed and Lou both won gold medals in ‘84. Ed was a 3 time NCAA champ and Lou won 2.
