    The goofers are a lot like the Dallas Cowboys, look good until it really counts while living in the past.
  2. Back in as a provisional sport... LOSE a weight class in men's freestyle. If this is win it is a piss poor one and those involved in getting it should be hung naked overnight in mosquito country as a reward. FILA and their 'leadership' is a sad thing to see.
  3. Lose a weight... and this is a win? All FILA and the international jokers have done over the past decade or so is cut opportunities for wrestlers. Now all are supposed to be happy that wrestling is 'back'..., as the red headed stepchild in the games? Wrestling loses here no matter how you slice it.
  4. Three tough wrestlers coming back. Three of the top in the nation at any weight. Which has the best season this year?
  5. You guys just don't like the fact that others have been prosecuted for child abuse for doing less what Gable is said to have done in the article. It is obvious you are part of the sick majority who protects those who would harm children.
  6. Marcus LeVesseur did it and went from being a small fish in a big pond to an asterisk in the wrestling record book.
  7. sorry Husky Zero..., child and spouse abuse is always wrong no matter who perpetrates it. Even if it is one of your heroes.
  8. I stand by my statement on few knowing where the place is. Your photos are SouthWest North Dakota, Teddy Roosevelt badlands area. Most of the State looks nothing like this. Could be worse tho, you might have put up photos of Williston or New Town. Bet most don't know a Continental Divide goes through North Dakota as well.
  9. My criticism of Dan Gable with both his kids and wife scared because of hit temper and 'intensity' in the home come from working with abuse victims. Call it what you want, this kind of behavior is abuse and in many jurisdictions would have Child Protective Services getting involved. You don't terrify your own kids and wife no matter how 'normal' they may appear later in life.
  10. Sorry medicine man, those are not 'great' photos. Just average "I was there and this is what was in front of the camera' everyday pictures. North Dakota has its own charm and beauty as well as Winters that keep the riff raff out. Still now few who even know where it is, much less put it on the vacation schedule. Great goose, deer, duck, pheasant and other hunting. Feeds the nation as the leading producer of 8 farm crops and in the top 10 in 12 more. Wal Marts have no pharmacies as all Pharmacies must be 51% owned by a legal North Dakota resident. The State has ore than 1.2 Billion $ in the reserve fund - and had over 800 million before the oil boom hit. A lot of nice things in the State and finally, FINALLY a wrestling coach at NDSU who challenges the kids to produce rather than settling for 'average'. A coach that is actively recruiting kids who will be competitive rather than just fill a roster. We look for good things for the program in the future.
  11. Read the article again, more carefully. Gable has/had serious issues that scared his family and his kids as well as some others. Not a healthy environment for children. His 'driven' is anothers abuse. No kid should have to live around this type of behavior. As I wrote, in many jurisdictions this would be child abuse. Enough to have Family Services step in. Any friends or others who know of the behavior and don't report it are as guilty of Child Abuse as the perpetrator. No amount of fame should protect anyone who harms kids or a spouse.
  12. Hope no wrestlers with current college eligibility take part as the pox known as the NCAA will probably rule them ineligible.
  13. Are you sure this isn't made up? Is North Dakota really a State? Have you EVER in your life heard anyone say they would take a vacation in North Dakota?
  14. Those with tattoos should not be allowed to compete. Marring their body in cheap ways like this is self mutilation and an affront to moral cleanliness.
  15. Brutus, it was child abuse and it IS child abuse. Your believing you turned out OK in spite of it does not change the facts. That so many excuse it and turn a blind eye to it only allows it to keep happening. Gable or a Paterno - child abuse is child abuse whether one steps in and stops it or not. No success in life can make up for ignoring it.
  16. Check with the Athletic Associations to make sure any medication is not going to disqualify your kid. Also, push to have mats cleaned and sanitized often. Have watched tournaments when mats went all day with dozens of matches and nothing cleaned other than the blood spots - and that often poorly done by kids not really interested. A lot of stuff sits on the mats and a kid getting his face rubbed into it can jump start an allergic reaction - not to mention rocks and grit brought in on shoes between sessions.
  17. Was 4th and All American finish back then? I think it was only the first 3 placers. 4th was AA starting in 1941. thanks, couldn't remember and the search engine isn't working too well where I'm at.
  18. Come back to this after he has won 10 world titles on the senior circuit. At this point he isn't even a Rulon.
  19. Anyone who refuses to wrestle the opponent scheduled should be out of the tournament. Do it twice and be banned from competition for life.
  20. Read the article again, more carefully. Gable has/had serious issues that scared his family and his kids as well as some others. Not a healthy environment for children.

  21. Was 4th and All American finish back then? I think it was only the first 3 placers.
  22. If he is smart he'll stay far away from Askren.
  23. In many jurisdictions what Gable did when his kids were home would be child abuse and a prosecutable offence. Punching holes in the walls and doors where his kids were? No excusing this kind of crap.
  24. So what if a family moves so their kids have more opportunities? Bet you wouldn't scream and cry if they did so for their kid to get into a premier Chemistry or Science program. The NCAA, the syphilis of the sporting world second only to the AIDS of the sporting world - the IOC, should pull its head out of its collective arse and face reality. Kids and families want the best and will move, take new jobs and sacrifice to get it. Let them do so. No one team will get all the talent. Remember the Sanderson Clan and Iowa State. It happens.
  25. Cael and get kids from Coon Rapids, Iowa or Coon Rapids, Minnesota - both wrestling States. No Coon Rapids in Alaska. A few recruits from Kodiak, Alaska might scare some Penn State opponents.
