  1. I wouldn't completely count Bulsak out either.
  2. I feel I need to say something about Buchanan. He did not wrestle much in High School. Never did camps, clinics, or out of season wrestling at all until a bit after his Junior year. He was a great FB player, just undersized. He is an extremely good athlete with very little wrestling experience compared to most of these guys. Last year he made a huge leap at Wyoming thanks to his coaches and the fact that he is a great kid who listens to everything. Yes, he will make mistakes and lose to a variety of people yet, but his ceiling is very high and I would not want to draw him this year and certainly not in the future. ( I am biased.)
  3. I could (probably) be wrong but I think the majority of the time, the 9th place Big 10 guy would beat them?
  4. This is a great topic but it really is different for HS and post HS.
  5. Dave Beazley, (Is a great coach, but could have been a great D1 coach), and if Kevin is at all like him, he would be too.
  6. Funny, I keep checking this thread to see if there is any news on wrestling? Silly me.
  7. Whatever, the point is made. When you guys don't like something you look for spelling and grammar. That just tells me the person making the point is correct.
  8. Well, better than average? I just didn't want to push it and miss the point.
  9. You know, this was a nice topic about a good wrestler from an average wresting school. I appreciate the insight about what he needs to do, and even how tough it will be. So why do we have to go away from it and talk about how great PSU is? This is a Hillger, Wisconsin, topic so give the guy this at least.
  10. I am really surprised that there is not more discussion about this on this board. Maybe I should see that as a positive thing? Everyone hears what these guys are saying and will do all we can to help, so no discussion needed.
  11. I love when people say all, or most. Is this a study done with all kids in the nation and all senior level wrestlers? or all the ones you talk to? or pretty much all, it seems like?
  12. I would be a little careful generalizing Ed,D programs as often, many, and certain people have them? Most programs now have programs, even PhD programs, on line. Are there stats that show that most don't require thesis? I have found the opposite. (maybe they were just good schools?) Also, does Shaq have an education degree, and a masters in education? Because most programs require that for an Ed.D? Anyway, like many things I am sure there are great programs and not so great?
  13. I agree! We all can be bad fans at some point, especially when it is someone close to you. The worse fans are people who say they are big fans but, never go to matches, never watch matches, know nothing about local, state, or national wrestlers and so on. And, even then, I would rather have them than haters....
  14. Sorry I have been out for a while but the problem I have is, when they went to conference USA I asked the AD about wrestling and he said "In no way will this effect wrestling."
  15. If they wanted to direct resources to the bigger sports, why cut wrestling and not rowing? or others? Does rowing give national exposure? Have you seen the facilities, wow! Or do these other sports need to be prepared because it's coming? Baseball a lot of schools cut but it seems to hold at ODU?
  16. Keep in mind the ODU program was not even "on the ropes".
  17. I do not know details but I do know at least assistant coaches had no idea. They need to pay for the new FB stadium some how?
  18. Be warned that he won't give a darn. When they were switching to conference USA a few years back I was afraid they were going to drop wrestling. So, I sent him an email asking about it and if we would be notified. He did respond. He was a jerk about it and told me it was none of my concern. (I was a parent of a wrestler). It was worse than you would expect and I can say here. I responded to him that if I treated people the way he responded to me, I would lose my job. He basically responded that he didn't care. Just a warning.
  19. Thank you, How about strange times call for strange solutions?
  20. Don't they sometimes give a redshirt to a wrestler who gets a season ending injury? Maybe make people apply for it?
  21. I am probably missing something as usual, but, why can't they at least allow last season to be a redshirt season if you have one available? For example, I wrestled all year, I was a national qualifier, (so still wrestling), and the season was forced to stop. Now I am allowed to say I will take this year as a redshirt year. If you don't have one, well.....
  22. Im no expert but love both positions. All depends on leverage, as mentioned, hips position, and control. Both guys could be in control but the person who really is controlling the tie is in the better position, and that can be done many ways.
  23. Unfortunately I have seen this happen before. I have also seen the flip side where they decided during the tournament not to wrestle back for a true spot. The NCAA should have a rule that forces this, one way or the other. Also, college coaches are terrible at talking to kids about these things. I don't get why?
  24. Maybe this was said but.... What if they just allow anyone who still has a redshirt available to now use it for this season even though they wrestled all year?
