  1. 125 - Lee 133 - Oliver 141 - Stieber 149 - Retherford 157 - Dake (wrestler of the decade) 165 - Taylor 174 - Ruth 184 - Nickal 197 - Cox 285 - Snyder really tough to leave out Nolf, Dieringer, and Burroughs at 157/165; but Taylor (2X Hodge, 4X finalist), along with Coach Sanderson, changed the sport. Zahid also deserves mention.
  2. May 2014 Nolf d Joseph 7-3 (folkstyle Disney Duals?) May 2016 Nolf d Joseph 5-2 (freestyle UWW Jr World Team Trials) Videos are online.
  3. A few more meaningless ;-) results for comparing Hall and Senior level wrestlers ~9 months ago at Jr Worlds, Mark Hall over Radik Valiev (Dec 6-2) ~3 months ago at Yarygin, Radik Valiev took Bronze at the same weight at which Dake took silver. Also at Yarygin: Gadzhimagomedov over Dake 8-2; Gadzhimagomedov over Valiev 2-1
  4. Nelson had worked hard to bulk up for his senior season when he was reportedly 6'4" 260lb. http://www.gophersports.com/sports/m-wrestl/spec-rel/010814aaa.html I would be surprised if he wasn't at least that now.
  5. The tallest astronaut was 6'4" and the heaviest at launch was 89.3kg

  9. I got to watch the whole match, one of only a few today. At least I got to see a good one.
  10. I'll be surprised if anyone see's much of this match - NBC stream sucks today.
  11. Right Jason ... we want Iowa-style wrestlers who stand in the middle like boat anchors, not wrestlers like John Smith, Jordan Burroughs, etc who move and create angles.
  12. Give it up Vak, there is no excuse for the officating in that match. In large part that sort of crap had disappeared with the current passivity rules and now that joke of an official brings back the old days to knock out a wrestler who could have been our olympic representive.
  13. PF, awesome post. This board reminds me of Republicans/Democrats or Fox/MSNBC, as it has evolved over time from Iowa/Iowa-haters to its current state of PSU/PSU-haters. I've noticed that you have to filter out the one-sided perspectives to extract value from the comments of most posters. I now look forward with anticipation to getting the PSU-hater response. I hope someone is willing to spend the time, as you have, extracting the off-base PSU-lover posts.

  15. There are a significant and increasing number of impact players in the NFL around Burroughs height. https://www.bsports.com/statsinsights/nfl/why-have-nfl-running-backs-gotten-shorter-a-statistical-investigation#.VSxI1pMsAsJ The author suggests this trend is likely a function of increased passing and lists a number who were active one weekend in 2013: RB Ray Rice (5’8”), 49ers RBs Frank Gore (5’9”) and LaMichael James (5’9”), Patriots RBs Danny Woodhead (5’8”) and Shane Vereen (5’9”) and Falcons RBs Michael Turner (5’10”) and Jacquizz Rodgers (5’6”). I would say Burroughs athletic ability is on par with those listed, but he would have to prove that he has (1) speed and (2) hands. It would be fun to watch. At the high school level, I have noticed that the wrestling recruits from the football team that work out the best are often the running backs.
  16. What Mat was this match on?
  17. It was Brown who had Kokesh all but pinned during a scramble he initiated late in the second, but Kokesh kept working and eventually came away with the TD.
  18. Papa Maple I am very interested in learning more about your son's condition. My son is a Junior in HS who has struggled with very similar symptoms for over a year now. By the end of this season we were doing anything we could to keep his weight up, and he still weighed in for the State tournament several pounds under the weight limit. Everyone assumed it was nerves and we had considered taking him to a sports psychiatrist. This condition has seriously affected his desire to compete and he has now lost all interest in off-season wrestling. Can you let me know what the diagnosis was? I would have PM'ed you, but apparently new accounts are not allowed to use this feature.
