  1. think the cowboys will take it on the chin this time. 125 Lee by major 4-0 133 Desanto by major or tech 8-0 141 Murin by dec 11-0 149 Lewellan by dec 11-3 (50/50) 157 Young by dec 14-3 (sheets improving but not enough) 165 Marinelli by dec 17-3 (whitlake good frosh so hold to a dec) 174 Kemerer by major 21-3 (Smith struggling) 184 Montalvo by dec 21-6 (going with slight upset) 197 Wood by dec 24-6 (will be a tight one) UNL Cass by fall 30-6 ( no contest) Worst case this could be a shutout - best case Cowboys pick up upset at 157 and 197
  2. That was one of the best duals I've seen in a while. Blood , guts, suspense, rally, crowd. Love being able to see these live. Not like the old days when I had to wait for my Amateur Wrestling News to arrive to get the scoop.
  3. What is the IOCs rationale for only having 6 weights? Why not have the same # as the World 's. ? Makes no sense to me and deprives worthy athletes and wrestling fans.
  4. Looks like this tournament is quickly fading in the sunset on the collegiate level - compare the 2020 national college division to 2010 placers Virginia Duals National College Division (2020 participants) #1 Virgina vs. Kent State #4 Old Dominion vs. Penn #3 Fresno State vs. Maryland #2 Rider vs. Duke Virginia Duals National College Division (2010 Placers) 1. Oklahoma State 2. Lehigh 3. Penn State 4. Oklahoma 5. Kent State 6. Virginia Tech 7. Virginia 8. Michigan I suppose Southern Scuffle has drawn the interest but even this year it has diluted.
  5. Our high school coach took us to see the finals. Some great matches like milkovich-owings, adams-dziedzik, and schalles pinning Hubbard. Great memory
  6. Gary Barton looks like a cast member for the Walking Dead
  7. Any news on whether Gfeller will be in line up at 141 and Smith at 174? without them could be tossup match
  8. Mark Shultz moves up to 177 and beats defending champ Banach 16-8 in 1982 finals
  9. Gary Barton from Clarion looks like a cast member of the Walking Dead and Peterson reminds me of Lurch :)
  10. So now that Fix has made the world team do you think he'll take an oly red shirt for 2019-2020? If so do you see Okie State dropping Brock back to 133, Gfeller to 141, and lewallen 149 ?
  11. Thus Ok State may have been able to score more tournament points with rogers at 165, joe at 174, and Jacobe at 184
  12. Pittsburgh will be my 17th. First was Maryland in 1972 while in high school - got to see milkoviches, carl adams, ben peterson, wade schallles Then long drought until 1990s and started going again - for a wreslting fan you can't beat it.
  13. Joe Smith loses in quarters to Romero who Rogers has pinned before. Smith in danger of not making tourney. Decision backfired?
  14. i have no prob with the wrestle off for 165 but as another poster mentioned which lineup is going to get better results: smith, rogers, smith, weigel OR smith, smith, geer, weigel
  15. Personally I would have set the line up at: 165 Smith Jr 2x AA 174 Rogers Sr 2x AA 184 Smith SR 1x AA 197 Weigel Sr 1x AA odd man out would be Geer who is only a soph and never an AA The only question would have been who gets 165 with loser going to 174 That, I believe, is the "right" thing to do. Its not as if John's decision would give the team a chance to upset PSU this year
  16. One of the best duals of the year but I don't see that Flo has picked it up is it televised ? Some great matchups
  17. we'll find out this weekend how Gfeller stacks up against Ashnault Ok State at Rutgers sunday 1/13 also fix v suriano which will be very interesting
  18. agree with this - but Gfeller could AA at 149 too
  19. I'm a Fix fan but red shirt frosh against two experienced senior studs does not bode well. The only way fix has a chance is to make it a take down battle and does not take bottom at all costs
  20. 17 First was 1972 at Maryland when our high school coach took us - got to see the Milkovich bros, Schalles, Carl Adams, Ben Peterson all win titles. Then 1991-1994, then 2003 - 2017 with a couple of breaks. Will be back for Pittsburgh next year.
  21. worse seeding that I could imagine for the pokes
  22. the way I see it: 1. Martinez 2. McFadden 3. Joseph 4. Walsh 5. Rogers 6. Lewis 7. Wick 8. Massa 9. Marinelli
  23. Payed football, wrestled , and ran track all four years in hs, Wrestling was by far the most demanding primarily because of the weight cutting. Our coach used to tell us that if we can handle wrestling's demands we'd be better prepared for whatever life throws at us. In hindsight, I agree, that the discipline and mental toughness aspect has helped me. I'm 62 and still work out 5 days/week Mon - Fri in the am before work. I credit part of that discipline to wrestling which has stayed in my blood. I love the sport and have a deep appreciation for the talent and sacrifice of those at at the D1 level.
