  1. I just looked at the scores of last year's Fila Cadet Worlds and Pico did not win any matches by 10 points. Here are the scores. 63 kg/138.75 lbs. – Aaron Pico, Whittier, Calif. (Champion) • won by TF over Adilbek Osmonaliev (Kyrgyzstan), 7-0, (1:41) • defeated Teymur Mammadov (Azerbaijan), 2-1 • won by TF over Maxim Carabadjac (Moldova), 10-2 (1:45) • defeated Vikas Vikas (India), 8-4 • defeated Yuhi Fujinami (Japan), 8-6
  2. Foxcatcher Farm was, I think, 800 acres. It was a giant tract of land for such a wealthy area, even when compared to some of DuPont's wealthy neighbors who were heirs to banking, department store and food fortunes. I believe the farm was part of a trust and was to kept as open lands, but recently that trust was broken and the farm sold to real estate developers. I once had some business dealings with DuPont's lawyer, who also represented the Bulgarian wrestler who ultimately inherited most of DuPont's estate. Nice lawyer, but to this day I am amazed that it all worked out the way that it did with his side prevailing in the battle for the estate. Most people around Newtown Square who had any dealings with DuPont, like the other non wrestling athletes and the pistol shooters who trained at the farm, believed he was basically not fit or sound of mind for quite some time, and I believe that will was signed during that time period. I figured the family would prevail, but it didn't work out that way.
  3. People should go watch those matches from Fila Cadet Worlds. Spencer was right there with the top 2 or 3 in the world. I think on any given day he actually beats them.
  4. Thanks for the heads up, piggy. I fixed the link.
  5. The 5 Regional Winners Are: Bo Nickal, Central Region Micah Jordan, Midwest Region Chance Marstellar, Northeast Region Brandon Womack, Southeast Region Nick Nevills, West Region You can read all about their many accomplishments, as well as find out who the state winners are at this link: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Fe ... rs-set?p=1
  6. In which case Fix would have to go thru Spencer Lee. Fix is a great wrestler, but Lee dominated him last year at Cadets.
  7. Pico also has a very close match with Tyler Berger (he also beat Berger handily in a separate match). He actually lost one period in that match in question and then came back and won by like 1 or 2 points. Too lazy to provide link but anyone can find it.
  8. You are paying them in advance, not in arrears, so if the billing charge does not go thru you owe them nothing. They just cut you off. The easiest way to stop any auto bill on your credit card is to call the credit card company and put a stop on it. You can do this at any time during the month. I would also alert Flo that this was done.
  9. I'd pay $250 to sit next to Mila, but not Ashton.
  10. If Flo actually worked I'd probably subscribe to it, but I tried it out and found out it works about 50% of the time for the live events so I cancelled it.
  11. So I take it that you are not part of the "In Cael We Trust" crowd? It's sobering to realize that if Taylor/Ruth had ended up at Michigan State the Spartans would've been a top 5 team this year placing ahead of Penn State and instead of Cael we would be hailing Coach Minkel as the next great thing. I see you took a day off from trolling the various Penn State msg. boards.
  12. This is how they are ranked AFTER their college careers have finished, according to the authoritative D1 College Wrestling. A very informative look at how wrestlers were ranked before and after their college careers. http://d1collegewrestling.net/Recruiting_2009.html
  13. Get real, ocho. Cael's backers, presumably Penn State wrestling enthusiasts, along with others, aren't the ones who started all of this nonsense. It is petty individuals with nothing better to do than to carp on those successful people they misguidedly believe are somehow preventing their team from winning. Look at the pathetic subject line in the Stieber thread. Placing the word "worst" next to Stieber is patently ridiculous and, frankly, has no place in this forum. And I am no Ohio State fan. People calling themselves wrestling fans who continually knock current wrestlers and coaches basically do the entire sport a disservice.
  14. Doesn't matter to me. I enjoy watching the guy wrestle because his skill set is crazy. I enjoy Burroughs too simply because of his insane athleticism. Nobody has Burroughs' quickness at that weight, but Taylor still found a way to make it real close and I respect that.
  15. yes he did. so what odds would you put on DT winning the WTs and what odds would you put on him medaling at the WC? Beats me. I do not have a crystal ball, but I'll be watching though.
  16. depends on how you define "excellent shot" and "quite slim" odds. we may not be too far off in assessments. Taylor's odds increased now that he won't have to go through Dake at the WTT, but he will probably still have to go through Marable. then he has to beat Burroughs, then he has to beat probably 2 or 3 guys of near Burroughs level. what odds do you put on DT beating Burroughs? multiple those odds by 3 or 4 and then you have the odds of Taylor medaling. Taylor dominated Marable last year.
  17. Great pick up for the Cavs. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/10419
  18. Mega was ranked somewhere between 5 and 8 most of his freshman year if I recall. He lost 2x each to Perelli and Sanders that year and had 7 total losses entering NCAA's. Anyone other than Nico and the PSU staff "expecting" him to make the final would have needed a crystal ball.
  19. Penn State #1. Hit it. http://www.intermatwrestle.com/articles/13212
  20. Taylor vs. Hasanov just announced. Nice.
  21. I would think one of the Valencia's would make the list, but I will wait this out to see what others have to say. Spencer Lee is on my list, but that is all for now.
  22. Nashon Garrett, Kyle Snyder, Taylor, Ruth, Oliver, Stieber and more added. http://www.prurgent.com/2014-04-29/pres ... 345432.htm
  23. Who will be the P4P top 5 high school wrestlers in America next year?
