  1. You forgot Pat Brown. Mike younger than and better than Charlie. Bernie younger than and better than Pat. So supposition holds!?
  2. Not sure if the OP meant great HS wrestlers whose college career was unfulfilled. Or college wrestlers bitten by injury bug preventing greatness. Either way, Troy Nickerson & Troy Letters shouldn't be mentioned in this category. T Nick went 4-3-2-1 (not in that order) despite being bitten by injury bug. Letters went 2-1-3-dnp. His Sr year was marred by injury. Never forget EIWA finals where he was injured and down a point to Anceravage of Cornell. He stood for about 30 seconds as time ran out as he had nothing left to give. Was very sad.
  3. As Lehigh fan (obviously), might expect me to go with Dake or Yianni. But I'll go with Gabe Dean based on below. You always think your guy has a chance, but after seeing that, I was thinking next match-up vs LU guy was going to be ugly. If my memory was correct, the bout occurred in EIWA finals vs Navy his Jr year.
  4. What exactly did Gfeller do to earn the penalty point?
  5. "Dylan Ammerman looks to have won the wrestle-off for Lehigh and will be 184 over Logan." No, Ammerman at 184 over JT Davis (& Caden Wright). Logan will be at 174. But, yes, Navy looks to be the favorite. "Where be Paetzel?" is a question that will eventually be answered for us LU fans.
  6. Although its just admin for now, if an eventual merger are they the Husky Bald Mountaineers? (Huskies, Bald Eagles and Mountaineers) Would a merged Clarion-CA(PA)-Edinboro be the Golden Fighting Vulcans? (Golden Eagles, Fighting Scots, Vulcans) Is Fighting Scots non-PC in today's academia? :lol:
  7. "HaHa...Western Michigan...Yeah that's nicer then living on The Atlantic Ocean and New Jersey..What a Clown!" I could see that response driving down the Parkway! lol
  8. Wait, why is Ryan Budzek wearing Augsburg sweats? :roll:
  9. Random other EIWAs, for those too lazy to click on link... #32 Cornell #33 Drexel #34 American #38 Bucknell #45 Penn #46 Princeton Army & Navy not listed
  10. So if the basketball team is predominantly black and listens to rap and hip hop, and the wrestling team is predominantly rural white and listens to country music. Is the wrestling team exposing blacks to systemic racism?
  11. Thanks, MSU158 & fadzaev2! (for the 2004 Davison response) "1988??? Cuvo, Jimmy Martin, Scott Turner, Santoro, Koll and Haselrig. " If correct, 3 of the 6 are PA district 11! Go Lehigh Valley!
  12. Klehner: buck is LU's version of scribe, just ignore him. PS always welcome by me on lehigh sports forum. Love the moniker.
  13. "Not sure why I apparently have to do this now a 3rd time. HE FORGOT!" I thought the cartoon Sun at 1:39 was Gimp being Gimp (playful). Missed the 2nd post, so SORRY!?
  14. No idea why Yozzo not in picture. For the young'uns, Yozzo pinned Pitt's Pat Santoro in finals. Pat is current Lehigh coach, whose father and older brother wrestled for Lehigh. Also, if you watch the video above, Lehigh's Mark Lieberman does color commentary. A 2-time NCA champ in late 70's. He did some work for ABC. Did respectable job.
  15. Yianni & Dave Auble have two championships each and don't make top 5? How about buh-bye to Nashon and we'll wait until Yianni's career is over to put him in? Ironic this came out on heels of Mr Dake's foot-in-mouth podcast interview.
  16. "I could see him beating Darmstadt and taking the spot this year " No, transferring to ASU. Well, not really transferring as he never got into Cornell.
  17. "Cornell May win the team title two years from now" But will Jacob Cardenas be there to see?
  18. Are we naming the 4 in the middle? All of them? Or naming states that top this? (I'm sure PA has some good years). OP has too many questions. :( But I'll go with Zach Rey in Hopatcong shirt, Noah Wylie in Cranford shirt and maybe Grey the younger in front row.
  19. Chris Weiler (Lehigh, 184 lbs) to Wisconsin as grad transfer. They had degree program not offered by LU. Good pickup by UW.
  20. Port Jervis: not NJ but you can see from your front porch. lol
  21. Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner! If douche = biggest character
  22. McGee is a 125 pounder. Was surprised that roster still available online. Note: ODU had 32 on roster. That was mild surprise, seemed high for program "in jeopardy". Note: They have a BIlly Baldwin on roster. His father is William Baldwin, but not of SUNY Binghamton & overly enthusiastic ESPN announcing fame.
  23. "Think about the cash it is going to cost the club." NLWC has more $ than they know what to do with.
  24. Watching frosh Dake (at 141) and Senior Dake (at 165) on ESPN has got me thinking. Why were folks so excited that he won 4 titles at 4 different weight classes? Other than its never been done before. Its not like a boxer who holds crowns at multiple weights. He had to go up, he grew. Does Dake as a Junior win at 141? No, way too sucked down. Does Dake as a Senior win at 149? No, way too sucked down. I'll say moving up to 165 to face Taylor was ballsy; and from memory, scuttlebutt at the time was it wasn't an absolute requirement from growth/weight standpoint. Not a hater, he'd be on my Mt Rushmore, with Cael, Gable and tbd. To me, the fact he won 4 without a redshirt is bigger accomplishment; hence my title. But someone make a case that 4 at 4 weight classes is bigger/better.
