  1. A bit, but it is also impressive that they have had 20 semifinalists over ten years
  2. Wrong. If you read what I wrote, I said that even making the NCAA final once would have matter. Also, the reason Joseph was never a big ten champ is that he ran into a fantastic wrestler nicknamed the Bull. Finally, best wins also matter when assessing careers. And I don't know Wick's career that well, but isn't his best win beating Marianelli?
  3. 3X Big Ten Champ matters. If Wick had won NCAA or even made the finals then maybe there is an argument.
  4. Don't forget that green was mediocre (or worse) at 65
  5. Snyder did pretty well the year he did not win NCAAs... just saying
  6. I would like to see him. I can't imagine he is close to Cox or Snyder, but it would be interesting to see if he is anywhere close to the other guys. Does he he have FS accomplishments?
  7. I don't disagree. I just would rather see neutral wrestling emphasized more. Event without the techs falls, one turn pretty much decides the match
  8. Plus the guy from Puerto Rico with olympic silver
  9. Yes to the step out rule, plus going out of bounds needs to be address on stand ups situation
  10. I think 4 point fall worse point is that it devaluates the TD
  11. Spencer already won once, so while it is not part of the official criteria, I think it is a fair reason to give it to Steveson. Also, because of the level of competition, plus he may be the best Heavyweight ever
  12. This was unreal. He was high enough to do a double. Maybe he is saving that for his olympic gold celebration

    Did anyone else have the thought that he was re living his most memorable NCAA moment by tackling a champion who was going to do a back flip
  14. Seems like he has nothing left to prove in NCAA wrestling, a hobbled Lee dominated. Who is going to challenge him in college? I would like to see him focus on international, get his par terre to the same level as his folkstyle tilts. Maybe do the Kyle Snyder route and show up for big tens and NCAAs
  15. That is actually good to hear because he looks like the world's biggest meathead. I think I am just jealous of his magnificent beard
  16. It seems if you need a serious neck brace, maybe you should not be wrestling.
  17. https://youtu.be/YHiOd50JSyA Breathtaking highlights

    It does not make sense to compare DIII to the best of DI. The better question for me is how would they do against an average or below average DI school. Could the Burgs beat 20-30 DI schools on in a typical year?
  19. you have logic on your side, but it doesn't seem to be happening. Look at our NCAA heavyweights right now. Gable may be the best NCAA heavy ever Parris, Cass, Schultz and Kerk all seem better than many of the plodders that were making the finals 20 years ago.
  20. Is Cassar giving FS a go? Is he still hurt?
  21. IOC? I forgot about Abounader. Is he still repping Lebanon. Seems like that is reason enough to move on.
  22. Is Finesilver representing Israel? I thought Iran was the only country whose athletes had to forfiet to Israelis?
  23. Holy sh!t that is a long list of sexual misconduct suspensions
