    This is why Willie quit FLO. He needed to finalize the deal. He can recruit anybody.

    I'd love to hear his reasoning for the WWE feeling the shoulders move.  Never seen this past the youth tournaments with hero dads reffing.

    wpialchamp got a reaction from Cary by the Lake in Willie at Flo   
    Somewhat agree but Pyles is arrogant and comes off like a band geek so he won't be able to carry the show now. In fact, the remaining cast all comes off as nerdy frat boys and the show has lost what little personality it had in the form of Willie despite the flaws you correctly point out above.

    If I’m being selfish this sucks for my own entertainment for be short-term. Willie was fantastic for FRL and he is the best wrestling journalist in the business.
    I can’t imagine a FRL with Pyles and Nomad/Bratke as I won’t be able to deal with CP’s monologues and he needs a strong personality to balance his ego. I fear it’ll just be a big echo chamber without Willie. 
    Gotta admire him for his confidence in betting on himself though. He’s so talented and it’ll be cool to see what he does next and hopefully he will make it another fantastic wrestling show or podcast to make some more must watch/listen entertainment.

    wpialchamp reacted to jeffrideal in Kerkvliet has entered the transfer portal...   
    Is Trevel considered one of the best?  You could make the argument that once Roselli left in 2016, Snyder has tapered off.  Who else has Trevel been successful with in the last two years?  Also, I said "I get that Snyder has bought into this stuff and don't think he left because of it," but maybe he realized he didn't need any of the other stuff, he just needs great coaching in wrestling.  As I outlined, Cael is the man for the job.  Recruits they have missed out on?  Who knows, I am just saying if you create a mono-culture like Ryan has, it leaves a large percentage of good recruits out.  Better question is which recruits did he get that did not pan out because they didn't fit the mold? Or which recruits regardless of the mold got better?  
    As someone said above, do Ryan and Trevel really have the name recognition?  I think guys were coming to tOSU for Snyder and Stieber.  NEO guys probably for Stieber and JJ.  Hire JJ as HC and Logan as AHC.  If not, we might see this https://twitter.com/trackwrestling/status/1190286270989262848/photo/1

    I might be touching the third rail here, but I think Ryan has built a mono-culture at tOSU.   The whole positive infinity stuff is a veiled nod to a right wing Christian culture.  You have a 4X NCAA Champ and World Champ in your stable and he isn't the ORTC head coach?  While I think Trevel is a decent coach, why isn't Stieber the HC at the ORTC?  I think it is because Trevel and Ryan share the same views and Stieber does not.  Throw in JJ who I don't think he buys into the religion stuff either but is such an Ohio guy, I think he puts up with a lot of stuff.  I get that Snyder has bought into this stuff and don't think he left because of it, but I think it turns a lot of potential recruits off.   Turning to Cael, a guy who was at least raised in a religious family, seldom mentions religion, if at all.  When you go to the house of Cael, you get nothing but wrestling.  When you go to the house of Ryan, it is a mix of wrestling, lifestyle, religion, etc.

    My first reaction is that I am not sure how much excitement this name will bring to a program who is in desparate need of it.  I follow D1 wrestling pretty closely (not an expert by any means) and I really am not familiar with him.  I can't imagine many high schoolers will be in awe if he comes calling to recruit......I hope I'm just ignorant.  Thoughts?

    wpialchamp reacted to John Coctostan in you be the ref...   
    this ref definitely "inserted himself" (pardon the phrasing) a little too much in this match.

    the first call for headbutting was utter bull****.  the penalty for suggesting a stalling call, questionable at best.  had the ref officiated as aggressively towards the red wrestler as he had the green, there undoubtedly would have been a stalling call.

    but his hostile attitude towards the coach at the table, indicating his own level of agitation, reveals a personality unfit for officiating, in my opinion.  much too invested.  casts additional doubt over all his questionable calls.
