  1. So they don't believe in the Minnesota Ceiling over there either?
  2. Thats a new one, retreating for fear of a semantic argument developing.
  3. The semantic argument has been delivered to me! As if on a platter!
  4. I framed them as inflammatory and summary. And consequently didn't expect such smug responses. What exactly was the thoughtful response that i rejected outright?
  5. Then refs will never call stalling on the bottom guy
  6. By your definition David Taylor was a dark horse his junior year. I would certainly agree that the match with richards marked the transition.
  7. You have to be anonymous going into the tourney to be a dark horse.
  8. no one knows what you are talking about.
  9. Does BoJo have a full name? I'm sick of these philosophical uncertainties leaking unto the board...
  10. When I said complete i meant more like he was a Whole Foods/Pharmacy/Garage/Pizza Delivery in one. Not something comparable to Kum-N-Go.
  11. So you won't address my argument, and based on your response don't understand it, but you will use my own modesty as an argument against it. Real clever of you.
  12. The question i would ask is if his style was anywhere near as well refined as it is now. His wrestling has a wonderful quality of completeness to it.
  13. Well first you need to find some semantics so I can run some tests on them and see if they even exist.
  14. I'm not certain of my premise but, listing a bunch of all american finishes and acting as if i said they don't produce good wrestlers isn't relevant. If someone took Iowa AA's from this time period, and calculated the average improvement in NCAA placement per year, and it was the same as Minny they would have point. When I look at this I see a lot of guys (Sanders, Yohn, vega steinhaus, volkman) who I could reasonably claim stopped improving early and crept up the podium as a result of wrestlers graduating. Maybe this opinion is just some prejudice i developed but most of the responses to it at this point are coming from people who don't even understand what I am saying.
  15. "Cheap cartoons are what stupid people use to rape children" -Abraham Lincoln (this is a joke/satire)
  16. If thats how you think i can recommend a random number generator for you to admire.
  17. Cornell PS, it's obvious that hindsight is 20/20, that doesn't make it meaningless.
  18. I did a quick once over on minny from last year. emphasis on the quick, and I made up a scoring system on the fly. 125 DNQ 133 8th/5th +3 141 6th DNP 0 149 2nd DNP -7 157 9th/2th 0 165 15th/7th +8 174 6th/3rd +11 184 7th/5th +13 197 4th/3rd +14 285 1st/2nd +13 You were right, I had no idea Minny outperformed last year. They must be great at peaking!
  19. I wouldn't have thought that but I probably didn't pay as much attention after the first day. Honestly i pal around with some big mind haters. But did they? Whats the breakdown? I should know sense i talk about it but i don't.
  20. my bad back to the IOWA/PSU peaking topic.
  21. thanks god i stumbled upon it before you implemented semantic quarrels
