  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. SoCon I’m guessing has a few
  4. Cool not so cool....how many of those schools do not have wrestling.
  5. 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.
  6. Was Karelin on the senior scene in ‘84?
  7. '...he was never the consistent winner either.' can you explain that a bit more?
  8. Ed and Lou both won gold medals in ‘84. Ed was a 3 time NCAA champ and Lou won 2.
  9. dominated several times during the season? he lost 4 matches total. the losses besides pin in NCAA finals were 3-2, 2-1, and 4-1.
  10. yep, far as I know he and Larkin from Ariz St are the only ones to do that.
  11. sorry if I've missed this, is Teasdale actually taking summer classes at Iowa at this point or just working out in the room?
  12. when did University of Kentucky drop wrestling (early / mid 80s?)? I'm assuming that was last time there has been D1 wrestling in Kentucky. SoCon for 'permanent' membership rather than being an independent would make sense.
  13. also like to see Moore get a title to complete the 1-4 placings set. Has to be a fairly small group that has done that. I know Abe and Larkin did it getting one place better each season 4th as freshman on up to champs as seniors. Jim Martin went 4-2-1-3. sure some more recent than those that I am forgetting right this sec but again guessing a fairly small group overall that has those unique placings. or just being top 4 for 4 years, great stuff and a lot of the guys on your list can make that happen.
  14. really hoping McFadden gets it done. I think he'd be Tech's 1st 4xAA.
  15. Barry Davis was a 2 time NCAA champ after the '83 season. He then took a RS and competed at the '84 Olympics winning a silver. Came back to get his 3rd NCAA title in '85.
  16. Dave Schultz won a medal every year '82 thru '87 so that's 6. Not sure if that was starting out his senior career or not ('82). Big Bruce did not medal right out of the gate, but his streak and overall career medal haul is crazy good. Rick Sanders earned medals in '66-'69 = 4. Bill Scherr earned medals '85-'89 = 5. again not sure if right out of the gate but a couple more that won 4 or more medals in a row at some point in their careers. also want to mention Lee Kemp. He won medals 4 out of 5 years (3 Gold, 1 bronze). '80 boycott screwed him out of a likely 5 in a row haul.
  17. I'm pretty much a wrestling nerd so I probably know who the guy is, but yeah the notoriety particularly in a niche sport like wrestling doesn't last that long for most beyond small circles. but this occurs in the major sports too. I mean stars from NFL, MLB, etc are more likely to be recognized years later, but not nearly as much as in their playing days.
  18. Dave Schultz maybe? I’m not sure if he made a senior team before ‘82, but that year he got a bronze up at 180.5 because Kemp was at 163. Then at 163 Schultz medaled in ‘83, ‘84, ‘85, maybe ‘86 and ‘87 too before Monday jumped in.
  19. Yeah I think JP158 might be Kurlander’s best W.
  20. So basically what you're saying is you are also somebody elses best win :) If this is who I think it is, he might be JMU’s 1st All-American’s best win (which will mean next to nothing to most forum followers but again if it’s who I think it is, he knows exactly what I’m talking about)
  21. Penn St specific portion of that site shows dual results as far back as 1925, but nothing re '21
  22. Stanford ended the 600 year streak in 2019
  23. once you throw Lewboo into the mix, you can do degrees of separation thing big time. I beat a guy who beat a guy etc who beat Lewis who beat John Smith who beat Sergei Beloglazov so yeah. and I did beat a guy who etc etc. I also beat an Olympic Gold medalist in wrestling. I beat him in wrestling, he won his gold in diving. I also lost to the actor who played Dave Schultz
  24. do you think wrestling that way contributed to the shoulder problems in first place? I don't know for sure in his case but that has to put a lot of torque on the shoulder. 125s and shoulder injuries....there was a bad run there for a while of top guys in that class getting derailed by shoulder injuries.
