  1. Regarding the 57 kg situation, what motivations do Tahmasebizadeh and Hajaghania have to win vs Rahimi? Why would they make weight for this?
  2. Sjgallan is your daughter not wrestling anymore? I reffereed one of her matches once...she was quite good
  3. Was there any thought of him going 133 this year? He looked significantly smaller than the Eastern Michigan guy he lost to...and he seems smaller than a ton of 141 guys.
  4. If you're *really* looking to gain a deeper insight into the young man, the article through this link provides it -- annoyingly, the asinine archive policy of the Chico Enterprise-Record means you have to pay $2.95 to read it. Nevertheless, just thought I'd throw this out there: http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=CERB&p_theme=cerb&p_action=search&p_maxdocs=200&s_dispstring=allfields(joined%20in%20progress)%20AND%20date(all)&p_field_advanced-0=&p_text_advanced-0=(%22joined%20in%20progress%22)&xcal_numdocs=20&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date:D&xcal_useweights=no
  5. You're right -- you're definitely no psychologist.
  6. Does anyone have any clue as to what the Hawaii invitational is that is listed on Minnesota's schedule and who else is competing there???
  7. If he could get Megaludis to finish on top this year (because if he redshirts he won't have to wrestle Delgado or Garrett - assuming Garrett is bumping like I have read) This is the first I've heard of Garrett potentially bumping up.
  8. Did I miss something re: Campbell? Did Boardwine resign??
  9. Thank you for the kind words, Adam (I'm never too far way from wrestling forums). There's definitely a concern from me that in spite of hard data, people generally prefer to hang on to anecdotal examples and sporadic outliers to justify unsupportable stances re: how one should foster their expectations of success, as you intimated in your responses on this thread. People are, it seems, purposely misleading themselves, which I find fascinating. I wonder if, psychologically, as sports fans we train ourselves to disregard the long-term, empirical data that invalidates our own preconceived notions about how sports or our favorite teams, etc function (eg in d1 wrestling: "money doesn't matter if the coach is amazing") so that we can allow ourselves to get emotionally invested in our reactions to the easy-to-understand data ("Team X had Y AAs") that we see on the surface and wish to react to viscerally all the while immediately seeking to refuse looking beneath said data's surface. In essence, does the majority subconsciously choose to ignore the data so that they can still "believe" in miracles, underdog stories, etc? And Pinnum, your adherence to developing and refining data-based opinions is laudable beyond words in our wrestling fraternity. Kudos to you.
  10. I was under the assumption that Waters was for sure going 133 next year. Has that plan changed?
  11. I might be misreading your post, but Davidson didn't win against a D I opponent this season.
  12. It's a horrible feature. It also auto-loads videos that are on completely different sections than the one you're viewing.
  13. Campbell is 2-0 and has wins over VMI and Appalachian State.
  14. On a forum that is rarely bereft of inane comments, this ranks among the most asinine of any I've ever seen.
  15. Wrestlingnerd, there is a level of inanity to many of the posts on this beloved gathering of thoughts we call themat.com College forum, which is to some degree expected and accepted as being part of the deal...but what you typed and I quoted above is quite literally the stupidest thing I have ever seen anyone write on here. Happy new year.
