  1. I feel that wrestling along with other sports made a huge change with the advent of two things. Internet and the plethora of national tournaments.
  2. So you call me an idiot because I would rather have a kid wrestle for me in the age range of 22-27 instead of 17-22? I'd take my chances with the older lad. Odds are he is more mature physically and emotionally. There is a reason that 17 year old world champs are so rare. It's the same reason there are age group world championships.
  3. I'd rather have the older kid in the room. In 5 years he would be gaining old man strength
  4. Rating a recruit should be about potential and what the athlete can do for a program. What the kid did at what ever age means squat. I’d rather have a 22 year old true freshman than a 17 year old.
  5. If I were a college coach and only had one full ride available (and it has to go to one kid) I would not pick a HWT no matter how good he is. My choice would be 149 or 157. A middle weight can work with at least two weights up and two weights down, a bull HWT really is on an island in the practice room
  6. When I read or hear a comment that somebody needs put in their place, I understand that to mean that the person n question is either cocky, boastful, or doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as others who apparently do have standing in that group
  7. Where exactly is and what do you mean by "his place"?
  8. Come on Swayz. You must live a sheltered life if you believe this. The number of regular students dwarf the number of student athletes by a huge number.
  9. Please explain and define why D3 offers a better educational experience.
  10. Initial eligibility for D1 & D2 are determined by the NCAA clearing house. There is not a whole lot of difference between the two. D3 and NAIA let the schools determine eligibility but there are standards that have to be met. 9.9 scholarships in D1 (not all schools are fully funded) 9 scholarships in D2 same as above No Athletic money in D3. Most schools have aid packages but no special consideration for athletes NAIA has much greater freedom with athletic money and it varies considerably from school to school Time requirements vary more school to school and coach to coach. When it comes to enjoyment, ask any kid who just won a title in D2 D3 or NAIA if they are enjoying the moment. Ask the same question to the last place finisher in the EWLS or SOCONS Most non D1 wrestlers don't eat, sleep and breath wrestling. The majority of the champs do but wrestling does not need to consume an athletes life to have success.
  11. Small Wisconsin state schools are primarily D3
  12. 2nd dual today where the fans stop posting results before the dual is over.
  13. The master of the whizzer just passed less than a month ago. RIP Bill Smith
