    Whatever was hampering Venz throughout this season so far seems to have gone away.  That was terrifying.

    Keep in mind that some of these kids that get married in college are hardcore evangelical homeschool kids and/or Mormons.  Not uncommon among those denominations.

    Konquest got a reaction from Housebuye in Bar and Half - so easy - apparently   
    Askren in his last 2 years of college wrestling (like Lee) was similar in terms of a guy who didn't look intimidating pinning everyone with relatively basic holds.  We are talking equally seasoned, AA-type college wrestlers just rolling over like he was drilling or something.  I have got to assume that there is some freakish grip strength involved as well as knowing the exact sweet spots of how to manipulate the opponent's joints.  Both guys would hit their stuff and it'd look like the opponent isn't even resisting. 10,000 hour rule.

    Konquest got a reaction from silver in Taylor Venz?   
    He hasn't looked himself all season.  He isn't always the most consistent to begin with, but anyone can see that something is up physically.  I am glad this is a "free" year and hope he can get back to 100%.

    Konquest got a reaction from TBar1977 in Best Wrestler Nobody Talks About - 20 Match Minimum   
    Yeah he does well with far ankle/scramble defense when someone is on his legs.  Re: the Brit Wilson match: riding must've been a point of emphasis lately because he's usually a 2 for 1 kind of wrestler.  If he develops a turn to go with the leg attacks and gas tank he'll be terrifying.

    Id be very surprised if you could point to a college wrestler who is married and isn't devoutly religious. That's the #1 cause of people marrying young.

    Konquest got a reaction from Housebuye in Shane Sparks Interview   
    It's pretty cool that he's reached the pinnacle of wrestling broadcasting yet he still knows all about these high school kids here in Wisconsin.  He came from livestreaming duals on "Badger State Wrestling" website all the way to being THE guy for broadcasting wrestling nation (potentially world) wide.  I also think it's awesome how he has a "stage name" that references how stoked he is when on the mic.  It's like something that you'd see a rapper do, LOL.
     
    Also, at the beginning when Shane talks about comedian Kevin Bozeman (who was a basketball player at UW Whitewater), you need to check that guy out.  My wife and I saw him at a comedy club in Florida and he had us dead.

    Konquest got a reaction from wamba in Austin Gomez retires   
    I said this on facebook and I'll say it here: He made the right choice re: concussions but he was one of the most exciting "home run hitters" in the NCAA.  NEVER out of a match.  He has the family tree in coaching, and I think he'll be a really popular clinician until he starts his own club or takes over his pops.  If more kids wrestled like Austin Gomez, the sport would grow in popularity!

    Konquest got a reaction from BadgerMon in Voting on the 8 greatest college matches   
    Snyder vs. Gwiz was a great match.  Marianetti beating McIllravy was absolutely stunning at the time.  Another great IL vs. IA NCAA final was Joe Williams over Ernest Benion 9-8.  That is an underrated match in terms of down to the wire matches with two NCAA champs.  Those don't happen too often.

    It looks that way because he has a huge head.  And I say this with the complete acknowledgement that he could end my life 50 different ways with his bare hands.

    There is no worlds this year, so no.  Same thing happened about 7-8 years ago when Nazar Kulchytskyy won it over Dieringer.  Nazar is a citizen now, though.  If there was a worlds, there'd be a separate WTT for the age level groups.

    Konquest got a reaction from wpialchamp in Flo's "Metcalf"   
    I remember after he won NCAA's as a senior and they asked him what he was going to do to celebrate, and he was just like, "Well, I am going to go run with my dogs and train, and watch TV/movies and focus on it instead of thinking about wrestling."  Then he said something like, "I'm not going to have 15 beers and eat an entire pizza, that's not the type of guy I am."  So after that, a couple friends of mine who were wrestling fans would call wolfing down an entire pizza after a night of heavy beer drinking, a "Metcalf", LOL.
