  1. iirc Whitmer hit a nice inside trip on Teague Moore in the semis.
  2. nah Jimmy C doesn't like every single one of his own posts.
  3. cool that they showed it again but most if not all of the 97 finals are on youtube. quality might not be great but could also explain the relative lack of excitement from the crowd here.
  4. didn't California state champ Cade Olivas walk away from wrestling due to concussions and was going to concentrate on golf? if this is even right (recall could be way off), wonder how he ended up doing in golf?
  5. Vertus Jones lost by 1 to Cael.
  6. was Carter kind of the unofficial fill in for that? but yeah, good question on who might fill long term.
  7. It’s wrestling. They’ve all had bad days. But yeah agree 0 losses vs 2-4 or whatever doesn’t tell the whole story. Overall, love these discussions for things I learn, a perspective I hadn’t considered, but end all be all, can’t definitely say greatest this, who wins that hypothetical match, etc.
  8. 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.
  9. Chertow was pushing 140 about two days after his last match at 118 in the late 80s. Guessing a tad higher these days.
  10. Google ‘wrestling for gable’ Bit of ambition there and just a great blog overall.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. yep and then beat Mann 4-3 in finals.
  16. Ed also lost 3 times his senior year.
  17. not a Michigan expert my any means but Donahoe or Reader maybe?
  18. blind at this early hour, sorry.
  19. hate that he beat Staylor for the title, but yeah, top notch.
  20. 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.
  21. Doug Wyland too another orthopedic doc after a very successful wrestling career.
  22. 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
