    Badger Fan got a reaction from Peso in Rest in Peace, Mike Duroe   
    It was truly a special moment this spring when Mike Duroe was one of the honorary coaches for the USA World Cup Team in Iowa City.

    Badger Fan got a reaction from Peso in When is the AD at Wisconsin going to clean house?   
    Cody stole two Badgers who were already All Americans (Andrew Howe - 1st, 2nd, 3rd) and Travis Rutt (7th) and got a 2nd from Howe and a DNP from Rutt their Senior Years. There is ZERO chance of Mark Cody will ever become the Badger Coach.

    Badger Fan got a reaction from LkwdSteve in Missing hometown/state for All-American wrestlers (from the 1940s)   
    Earl Hager was from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    From the www.uwbadgers.com website:
     
    Earl Hager put together a 3-1 record at the 1941 NCAA tournament, good for a fourth place finish. Hager is Wisconsin wrestling's only All-American at the 175 lb. weight class.

    Badger Fan got a reaction from Yellow_Medal in Should College Weight Classes be Reviewed?   
    How about 131, 139, 147, 155, 163, 172, 181, 193, 209, 285 - add some weight to each existing weight class other than 285

    I understand the thought behind mat side weigh-ins - a main problem is it would effectively lower all of the weight classes by a few pounds

    Badger Fan got a reaction from pennsyrules in I am really going to enjoy the Frank Molinaro Olympic era   
    Frank defeated, in order, a 2 time National Champion (Kellen Russell), a 2 time National Champion (Brent Metcalf), a 4 time National Champion (Logan Stieber), and Aaron Pico (in front of a partisan Iowa crowd virtually all rooting for Pico)

    ​Frank really earned the Olympic Trials Title. I am glad he gets to represent the USA in Rio.  I think he can do better at the Olympics than many think. He has really improved his freestyle technique.

    ​Getting a bronze in a 32 man bracket at the qualification tournament is impressive. To me, it feels like the Top 3 at any of these tournaments should auto qualify.
     
    Where did they come up with 19 per weight anyway? Why not 24, especially with the former Soviet countries taking up extra slots?

    If you are ahead on the feet late in the match you can dance around and completely avoid contact and will not be called for stalling.  Seems too blatant.

    Okay, explain this logic to me.
    If the end of last season is not relevant at all (12 months ago), then why is the early in the season (4 months ago) equally relevant to the end of this season?
