  1. I don’t think that’s quite right. We were the same age and Metcalf was always like Iowa persona on the mat. I remember him dropping a match to Johnstone at Jr. Duels and standing over him screaming at him to get up and wrestle. Crazy intensity. Off the mat, I hung out with the Iowa guys at the OTC, and he seemed like a bit of a goofball if anything. He was always a smart guy, carrying great GPAs in high school and college.

  2. With respect to Coach Sanderson, if he doesn't learn how to spread the wealth, literally, with the rest of the wrestling community, the only events he will be able to put on are NLWC intrasquad meets. He might be fine with that, but we shouldn't be. Signing up through other content creators was a smart move and I hope a lot of people went that route.
  3. Mike Tyson Serena Williams Michael Jordan Simon Biles Georges St. Pierre Vasyl Lomachenko or Floyd Mayweather Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Another way of saying this is: could the fifth place guy from 9 years ago come out of retirement 16 years after his gold medal and beat a world champion ? Probably not Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Cox, Snyder, Gwiz would be strong favorites I think. Taylor and Bo couldn’t beat him because of their relationship. He might have a hard time with someone really athletic like a Valencia Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Some guys my age who could still scrap Mike Poeta v. Gregor Gillespie Brent Metcalf v. Dustin Schlatter J.P. O’Conner v. Jesse Jantzen (battle of Harvard) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. VO2 max is more important in wrestling training than wrestling competition. Wrestling is a largely anaerobic activity, so different blood buffering thresholds, shunting and neuromuscular efficiency are more important to in match performance. The technique portion of endurance is always underrated; the more you use leverage, the less you use strength from poor position, and the better you control your stress, the less tired you get. B.

  8. So i can front 5 grand to buy a bunch of bots to follow me on social media, and then beat the snot out of this idiot for 5 grand profit? Sure, I'll be your huckleberry, Logan.
  9. He was just doing a kickout. Didn’t seem intentional at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I just meant based on the points they used here. Ranking all these guys from different eras is too tall a task for me.
  11. How to rank OSU wrestlers all-time definitely depends on how much weight you give to Jordan Oliver 100% taking down Logan Steiber even if he didn't get his hand raised, but it's pretty wild that would only jump him up to #5 for accolades here.
  12. Definitely Boltukaev; I always knew that guy was clean! /s
  13. Sports Illustrated May 13, 1991 During and early afternoon in Pittsburgh, Alexander Karelin, 23 years old and the most dominating wrestler in the world, is relaxing on a hotel-lobby couch. It is a substantial piece of furniture, and that is a good thing; the 6 ft. 3 in. Karelin's 290 pounds demand it. He has come to Pennsylvania from the Soviet Union for an exhibition match. Nobody passing through the lobby is paying him much attention. "Men of my size are usually not flexible," says Karelin. A mischievous expression spreads across the vast plain of his face. He rises and walks to a chandelier hanging perhaps eight feet above the floor. Lifting his right leg straight up above his head, he gives the chandelier a slight nudge with his size-15 sneaker. Now everyone has noticed him. "What's that man doing?" a woman screams. Karelin pads back to the couch, wiggles both of the ears that protrude like funnels from the sides of his head, looks up at the chandelier swinging gently back and forth, and grins like a schoolboy. "I didn't like myself before I began wrestling," he says later over a meal of pizza (nine slices) and apple juice (six large glasses). "Wrestling helped me to be at ease. Occasionally, I still wish for the privacy of being a little fellow nobody sees. Teenagers sneer, 'Look at this guy! The legs! The ears!' And older people see my face and say, 'My god! Look, quick! A criminal!' " Karelin sighs, uncrossing his mammoth legs. "I'm also a favorite of drunkards and others who seek to prove their strength by confronting me," he says. "Of course, I am grateful for my strength. It makes me self-sufficient. When I bought a refrigerator, I carried it myself up the stairs to my apartment on the eighth floor. Always, though, I am conscious that I am not a typical man. I can win a wrestling competition with a decent enough score, but because I am not typical, I must win in atypical ways."
  14. I think this is exactly right, and further, if only 6-10 schools are 100% safe then our whole sport is in really big trouble
  15. If you take a combination of: Power, Strength, Agility, Balance, Flexibility, Anaerobic endurance, and Proprioception/Body Awareness into account, our current team has some all-time athletes on it: Dake, Burroughs, Cox, and Taylor are all up there with M. Schultz, K Monday, N. Carr, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
