  1. Lehigh fans, wasn’t there a kid who wrestled club level (in Florida somewhere?) then transferred in and was at least a national qualifier? Not exactly an answer to OP but a different path than most.
  2. Frizzell used to post on here. In my book, def one of the best guys to never make a final. That era OU was something special with him, Metzger, Dave and Mark, Dr Death, etc.
  3. Carr and Monday was a great rivalry. Monday beat him at Big 8 both years that Carr beat him in NCAA finals iirc. As you mentioned Zalesky and Metzger was another good one. Same era Banach/Schultz, Banach/Mann, Schultz/Hummel Goldman/Chaid just a few more that come to mind.
  4. A pretty notable reverse was Gable’s ISU ‘mate Chuck Jean who won D1 twice before transferring to NAIA Adams St where he won two more titles.
  5. Somewhat similar....Joe Gonzales wrestled at a juco, then the University of Oklahoma, then at Cal St Bakersfield which was D2 at the time. Two time D2 champ, which qualified him for D1, where he placed 2nd (losing a classic final to Gene Mills) and 1st (going 55-0 for season). Later also placed 3rd in world in free.
  6. Lesnar was another good transfer for Minnesota. Juco champ before joining the Gophers I think
  7. I thought the double DQ was at Va Duals as well
  8. yep, because next year is THE ‘next year' Iowa fans have been talking about every year for a while now where they will dethrone PSU. Next year all in on folk, free be damned.
  9. wrestlingstats says you are right but I wonder if this is accurate Weight PSU Wrestler Opponent Result 118 Jon Kallen Zaputil LTF 126 Sanshiro Abe Streicher W 9-3 134 Cary Kolat Zadick, B. WBF 4:04 142 Russ Hughes Steiner, Terry LMD 1-10 150 Troy Sunderland Steiner, Troy L 3-6 158 Josh Robbins Catalano W 3-2 167 Dave Hart Trammel W 4-2 177 Matt White Nerem W 7-6 190 Kerry McCoy Sharratt L 10-14 275 Greg Troxell Oostendorp L 2-4 n State University Wrestling
  10. Agree TJ gets overlooked a lot. Even the Iowa crowd rarely puts him near top of their best ever discussions. If nothing else he has best career winning % for them.
  11. Cayle Byers 2009 was round of 12 at GMU, losing to the eventual 2nd and 3rd placers, 2-0 and 8-7. then placed 3rd at Ok St in 2012
  12. old 118 = 125 Prescott 2 time champ I agree with Husker Du, Abe could be the 133, or maybe go Martin as he went 1st and 3rd at 126 his last two seasons.
  13. since you acknowledge Lee taking 'weird losses' you should probably acknowledge that Hall has losses on record to folks not named Valencia.
  14. and Gilbert had Tom pinned but they wouldn't slap the mat in the Big Ten finals one year. Course Tom does have an official pin loss on the record courtesy of Fried.
  15. Gable 9th grade = middle school
  16. I'll forgive the omission, but must point out you left out Barry Davis from the Iowa crew. More world level medals than most of those guys.
  17. good point. given that he wrestled 133 again 3 days later (at least according to wrestlestat), what's the most he could have weighed in for match vs Meredith (with the descent rules)? that said, I'm with the 'ain't betting against Yianni ' crowd until proven otherwise. but ya never know as far as 4 titles either. Imar as mentioned...Dustin Schlatter looked as good as anyone ever after 1 season....Troy Letters was going to be a 3 time champ, 4 time finalist....things happen.
  18. glad you shared that. when I saw this topic I wondered if that might be the case at The Citadel, and VMI.
  19. isn't Zack Ryder the name of a WWE guy?
  20. NCAA champ Matt Brown also did at Penn St
  21. oh c'mon now David Taylor was older than 19 when Bubba pinned him
  22. if true, will this cut down on the number of future 5x state champs from NY? (I'm assuming that most previous 5 timers won first title at lowest weight class in 8th grade)
  23. you are correct it was '79. He took 2nd in '77 but in juniors.
  24. Freestyle: Bobby Weaver was 2nd in the world in 1977, think he was still in HS. Of course this was at 105.5
