  1. Bo had one of the greatest collegiate careers in history. Better than Taylor’s or Snyder’s for sure. In fact, he is a late move by MM from being in the discussion of 2 or 3 best. I understand favoring those two guys, because they are incredible. Especially Snyder, but why is it crazy to think that a talent like Nickal could transition as fast and effectively as Burroughs? Nickal is one of the best pure athletes we have seen in a while. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Kasper from Duke. The kid was like an average 74/84 pounder. He bumped up to HWT and AA’d twice I think. HWT has been a garbage weight class for a long time. Obviously there have always been some elite guys, but not much of a weight class. It looks to me like that is changing. I think we are going to see more Linebacker types of athletes than lineman going forward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I know a guy that wrestled there, and actually roomed with his son Pat at one time. He said that Bobby Knight loved the wrestling team, and often used them as an example for his players on what it meant to work hard for the opportunity just to compete, and how to show real pride. He said that Knight was very respectful of all of the athletes on campus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. RBY lost to Silva last year I’m pretty sure. I do agree with the original post other than that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You all have lost your mind. Women's wrestling is not nearly as competitive as Women's Judo at the Olympic level. Rousey is the only American to medal in the Olympics is Judo. Tate by the way, is a world class grappler. I believe that she was a FILA gold or silver medalist at WTT. Rousey is simply at a different level. She will do what ever she wants to her opponents for at least the next couple of years. The scary thing is that she has lots of room to grow herself. She is nowhere near her peak.
  6. I know that it was along time ago, way back in double O 6. There was this young fellow named Henry Cejudo. Believe it or not, he skipped college, and started training for the Olympics. You will never guess what happened. He WON the gold medal two years later in the Olympics. Now I know that it is a little different with people like Burroughs, Taylor, Dake, and Howe, all potentially vying for the spot. It is not however, totally out of the question that Marstellar would embrace the challenge if it was his only shot. Hopefully, the worst case scenario is that wrestling misses one cycle, and returns in 2024. That would put Chance at prime Olympic age I believe. Bottom line, the original post is not out of the question.
