    Gary Barton from Clarion looks like a cast member of the Walking Dead and Peterson reminds me of Lurch :)

    okwrestle got a reaction from ShakaAloha in Chandler Rogers Odd Man Out....   
    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

    okwrestle got a reaction from xander in What is everyone’s wrestling experience?   
    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.

    okwrestle got a reaction from TBar1977 in PSU vs OSU   
    This dual might be more interesting if OSU would bump Dieringer up to face Nickal and have Rogers wrestle 165.
    If both Crutch and Smith are out its a stretch though.

    okwrestle got a reaction from silver-medal in Did you ever, seriously, almost quit wrestling, but   
    When I was a high school junior I got fed up with the cutting weight/practice grind and "quit".  I tried soccer for 1 week and knew that was not the ticket. I asked the coach to come back and he said sure but you must ask the team as well. So I asked my team mates to take me back which they did and in my first varsity match I won by fall which was the best medicine of all. Wrestling has never left my psyche since then and I will be always appreciative of the life lessons it taught.

    okwrestle got a reaction from ironmonkey in sesker's slant   
    Pushing out shouldn't be a legit wrestling move for folk or free. Should be just for greco since its upperbody focused.
    Instead, stalling should be more agressively enforced which would force wrestlers to be offensive.
