    KTG119 got a reaction from BadgerMon in Favorite weight class at a past NCAA tourney   
    126 1989 is one of my favorite brackets. Two eventual Oly Gold medalists Cross and Tom Brands. 4 guys in top 8 who would end up as NCAA champs at some point Cross (won it in '89), Brands (would move up and win it 3x), Jim Martin (champ in '88), and Kelber (champ in '91). Va boy John Epperly in there for an AA finish. Dog fight from the quarters on.

    very sad to hear this news
    His impressive and long march through the consolation bracket in '99 is a very distinct wrestling memory of mine and his upset over TJ Williams the next year also noteworthy (TJ Williams went something like 98-1 in his Iowa career, his only loss to Quisel)

    fwiw, wiki has this info on Henson
    He then returned to the University of Missouri to finish his degree, graduating in 1995 with a degree in Park, Recreation and Tourism Management.

    I was just joking but of all current penn state wrestlers I’d say he’s the only one with any chance 
    I don’t expect it to happen but a lot of high level wrestlers speak highly of him

    KTG119 reacted to Peso in How good would Desanto be in FS?   
    I missed the boat on Desanto.  He's one tough son of a gun.  When he first beat an injured Lee in the Pennsylvania State Finals, I thought there was more to it than his opponent being injured.  Even with that, I didn't see him getting to this level.  I'm probably the only Cowboy fan on the planet that likes this kid, but here I am, just admiring the hell out of how bad he goes after it.  I think everyone is crazy except Desanto and me, and lately I've been concerned about him.  :--)

    Letters and DS for sure. McDonough and Delgado come to mind as well. 
    Back to DS and TobusRex's commentary on boring style. I looked it up-
    Freshman year he was 42-1 4 pins, 14 majors, 10 techs so 28 of 42 were bonus wins, 2/3 of wins by bonus.
    Soph year he was 37-1 2 pins 2 majors 9 techs so 13 of 37 closer to one of every 3 wins by bonus. pretty significant drop off. and yeah agree some of it was guys figuring him out. Gillespie wrestled a very tactical (some might have called it stalling) match to beat him.

    I believe Barton qualified as a wildcard from DII. And Barton took out the 5,4,1,and 2 in that order...He won is first match 11-5, then 6-6, 4-3OT (2-3-3, 1min rest, then 1-1-1), then 8-5, then 5-3 in the semi's, then 8-6 in the finals.... I'm pretty sure they took the 1 & 2 and several wild cards in DII and all the DIII champs plus a few wilds...I could be wrong on the exact numbers....Also, Hvywt Chris Taylor, Iowa St., weighed 400+.  I wish they would reinstate the "unlimited" weight class again.  Having the 118 and UNL truly gave a lot of guys a chance to compete at the college level, reinforcing the concept that virtually any one, any size, could get a scholarship and compete collegiately in sport... like wrestling.  Back then there was no 9.9 limit on scholarships or how many could be in the room...And Doug Blubaugh was Grady's asst at MSU until 1973, then he left for Indiana.

    Weight class 142. I was 1-1 and done. Lost to 2x College Division Champ from Cal Poly, Glen Anderson. In those days you had to lose to a semi finalist to qualify for consolations.

    Scott Turner is one of my favorite former NC St grapplers. He beat Iowa St great Tim Krieger two different years at NCAAs (.once in finals).  iirc Krieger only had 3 career losses and Turner accounted for 2.

    Likewise, I enjoy these jerseywrestling posts and this one in particular. I qualified and competed in this tournament. Like Gary Barton I was unseeded but unlike him I wrestled to my seed.

    Gary Barton demonstrated how to get out from a leg rider when I attended my first wrestling camp at Clarion in the late 90s. He had me put a leg in, he sat to his hip then drove his pointy elbow into the center of my inner thigh. He picked me because I was the biggest kid in camp. Still makes me cringe thinking about that type of pain.

    No offense to Mark Perry or Joe Scarpello but Joe Williams and Barry Davis have to on the list-both won three titles. TJ Williams and Mark Ironside (on every Iowa fans shortlist) are two of my favorite Iowa wrestlers ever and people seem to not bring them up as much (especially TJ).
    Spencer Lee will be there soon.

    wow it's almost like this kid is a....Brands
    'I typically go 50-50 with either of them for the first 20 minutes of wrestling. But they don't get tired. They will almost get your leg, and almost get your leg, and almost get your leg, and eventually they'll get your leg. Then they'll get it again. And again. And again.

    It is highly annoying.'
