  1. Ranked guys who lost to lower or unranked wrestlers last weekend included: Pantaleo lost to a redshirt teammate, Lewan. Flynn lost to Gunther (Illinois, 165). Foley topped Mattin at 125. Korbin Myers lost at 133. Alber lost to Moran who lost to Lantry at 141. Thorn lost to Polmeyer at 149. Zac Carson and Perez both lost at 165. Ben Harvey lost to a back-up at 174 at the Princeton Open. Chip Ness lost to a VT redshirt at 184. #10 ranked Weiler of Lehigh lost twice at 197. What ranked guys will go down this weekend? What potential surprises are in the offing? Lugo (Iowa, 149) just lost to an unranked CSU-B wrestler.

    What about Robles

    Interesting and illuminating article on Robles if you haven't read it before. Addresses a few of the points or claims made above: https://deadspin.com/the-one-legged-wrestler-who-conquered-his-sport-then-l-452888181
  3. Give it up, man. They weren't correcting me because nothing I said was wrong, technically or otherwise. They were commenting on the match or reasonable ways to view it. You are 100% wrong, so just admit it. You keeping digging your hole deeper and deeper like a hound in search of an invisible bone. Your problem seems to be an inability to understand and interpret the English language. You would be tech-ed in 30 seconds in a court of law, an academic or scientific setting, or any other community of reasonable humans who converse in English. That apparently is YOUR problem and belongs to no one else. Good luck. I recommend a course in linguistics, journalism, hermeneutics, or good-old-fashioned grammar.
  4. Great job. Love Robles indomitable spirit and willingness to take on and rise to challenges. A great person and representative of all sports. He's thoughtful, humble and willing to take risks. Apparently, there is a film of some sort coming out about his life and memoir. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/311619/unstoppable-by-anthony-robles/9781592408047/ https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/college/asu/2018/09/14/movie-works-life-asu-ncaa-wrestling-champ-anthony-robles/1307432002/
  5. Man, you are intransigent and unsubtle and apparently upset. I did NOT CLAIM it was over-hyped. I asked if it was. There is a crucial difference. Furthermore, the thread (which I in fact started and so have a good clear sense about) is for upsets AND SURPRISES. It can reasonably count as a surprise since Steveson beat Hall soundly in freestyle and barely squeaked by in OT (SV). You are not only wrong, but YOU are misleading or worse. Seriously, what is your problem? Is it because Rutgers got soundly thrashed? (Note: the penultimate sentence is a question-- i.e., it is interrogative. The last sentence is also a question). Pay attention to details; they matter.
  6. Either you are angling for a Troll Award or you can't read. I didn't claim he lost. I claimed he won. Read please. It's a lost skill in the Internet Age. I said it was a close one. There is nothing fake except your claim of falsehood.

    Penn State vs Kent State Thread

    Weight Summary PEST KEST 125 Jake Ferri (Kent State) over Devin Schnupp (Penn State) (Dec 12-8) 0 3 133 Roman Bravo-Young (Penn State) over Tim Rooney (Kent State) (Fall 5:31) 6 0 141 Nick Lee (Penn State) over Cory Simpson (Kent State) (TF 18-2 3:44) 5 0 149 Jarod Verkleeren (Penn State) over Kody Komara (Kent State) (Fall 1:20) 6 0 157 Jason Nolf (Penn State) over Joe Andrassy (Kent State) (Fall 2:29) 6 0 165 Vincenzo Joseph (Penn State) over Isaac Bast (Kent State) (Fall 3:40) 6 0 174 Mark Hall (Penn State) over Dylan Barreiro (Kent State) (Fall 3:34) 6 0 184 Shakur Rasheed (Penn State) over Andrew McNally (Kent State) (Fall 1:13) 6 0 197 Bo Nickal (Penn State) over Shane Mast (Kent State) (Fall 2:06) 6 0 285 Anthony Cassar (Penn State) over William Bolia (Kent State) (TF 17-2 5:15) 5 0 Team Score: 52 3

  10. How many did he do? Is there video? Couldn't find the game on TV or results on social media.
  11. Iowa's lineup this weekend will likely feature 5 guys from PA: Lee 125 DeSanto 133 Murin 141 Young 157 Kemmerer 174 That's half the lineup. And while not from PA, Lugo (149) is a transfer from Edinboro (in PA) and another likely starter. By contrast, Penn State's lineup this weekend will only feature 4 PA guys: Schnupp, Verkleeren, Nolf, and Joseph. If/when Schnupp is replaced by Teske and Verkleeren is replaced by Berge at some point, they could be down to 2 PA guys. A curious situation:
  12. Nick Reenan tops Ryan Preisch of Lehigh
  13. Aaron Brooks! He might not technically be a redshirt since he is spending the year at the OTC in Colorado, but he has already easily won two college tournaments this season. He is going to be the kind of transformative and elite guy for Penn State in the way that Nolf, Nickal, Retherford, Taylor, and Ruth have been.

    Journeymen Northeast Duals

    FLO's writeup https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6265905-notable-results-from-the-2018-journeymen-myhouse-northeast-duals
  15. Gable Steveson in a close one in OT. 3-1 win over Tanner Hall. TD in SV. Was some of the hype a bit pre-mature? Stoll, Nevills, and some of the other top guys might have just been given a confidence boost.
  16. #13 Rutgers goes down to unranked Utah Valley. One match to go and Utah is up 21-14.
  17. 157 | No. 9 John Van Brill drops a 9-6 decision to Grant Lamont.
  18. Not an upset, but #2 Conel of Kent State barely won yesterday (something like 10-9). Had his left arm and shoulder heavily wrapped. Pretty sure he won't go against Bo Nickal on Sunday unless he is looking for amputation.
  19. Findlay of Utah beats Van Brill of Rutgers at 141. Pin I think.
  20. Chad Red loses again. This time to Krivis of Virginia.
  21. #9 Van Brill 157 Rutgers loses to unranked guy from App State
  22. #6 Chad Red of Nebraska goes down to unranked Findlay of Utah Valley 10-8.
  23. Don't see him beating Micic or RBY either. He might have a chance against Pletcher, who nevertheless has good defense.

    Is Iowa PA-west (or midwest)?

    Ryan Preisch and Zach Zavatsky are pretty good PA guys at 184 and highly ranked: #4 and #6. Who would be at 285? Jordan Wood or Thomas Haynes, who are both ranked: #6 and #9?
