  1. My son surprised me and bought tickets. We'll be there!
  2. Thanks for the research. The old ballpark was called Globe Life and was not enclosed. I forgot they moved the name of the park when they moved to the new stadium with the roof and climate control. All good!
  3. Where in Texas and where are you from in Mo? My family and I moved to DFW area in 91 from St Louis. My son wrestled for Rocky Streb at Oakville.
  4. This is a pretty attractive event when you live in north Texas. There's a couple of questions I'm hoping someone has answers for. 1. Globe Life Field is not a covered stadium. It gets pretty cold in February, even in Texas. How do you hold two dual meets in potentially freezing temps? 2. The mats won't be very close so visibility will be poor (see map below). Anyone know if they will show this on the viewing screens in the ball park so people can get a better view? 3. Anyone know if this will be televised? Thx in advance for your help. GO MIZZOU!
  5. Reg Mizzou lineup and specifically, Hart (currently 5th on InterMat @ 141) and Kent (currently 13th on InterMat @ 184). Good for Mizzou, but tough for these two who are ranked highly going into the season and may not keep their starting spot due to up and comers; Josh Edmund @ 141 and Colton Hawks @ 184. Black and Gold is 2 weeks from Tuesday. No one has any insight on how these weight classes are trending? Thanks
  6. Anyone have insight on who's leading the competition between Hart/Edmond and Kent/Hawks?
  7. Site has their first of the season rankings; team (dual/tourn) and individual weight class rankings. FYI
  8. While that's true, we can get pieces of Mizzou's schedule by looking at those they are expected to compete against. Some of those teams release their schedule much earlier.
  9. Proud to acknowledge the Mizzou program being so successful at Junior Worlds this past week (in Russia). Three Mizzou wrestlers competed in the freestyle competition; Colton Hawks, Keegan O'Toole and Rocky Elam. All three wrestlers will be true sophomores next season. Colton Hawks wrestled well, but won 1 and lost 1. Both O'Toole and Elam won Gold sweeping their brackets. O'Toole was behind on points in the final minute of his quarter and semi final matches. He won both those matches with cradles/pins giving credit to his extensive folk style training in the US. It is rumored that his opponents are now researching "what is a cradle" after losing to O'Toole. These accomplishments are further evidence of the hard work, great coaching, talented wrestlers and great recruiting going on at Mizzou. I look forward to another successful season coming up soon!
  10. Plus it's great news for those of us who live in Texas! We can now travel to OU and OSU for duals a lot easier! Better competition! Can't wait to see MIzzou and OSU compete next season!
  11. There's a big difference between not making it easy to cancel and not making it possible to contact anyone for anything.
  12. I think I subscribed to Rokfin at the beginning of this past season and somehow the account got set up as an auto renewable monthly fee. Trying to cancel and, as you may know, it seems to be impossible. There's no chat or phone listed on their web site. The only phone number I could find (417-631-8529) isn't connecting to anyone or a VM. Gee, it's almost as if they don't want anyone to be able to cancel their account. Any suggestions? Thx
  13. Take a closer look at the low to mid weight wrestlers and who they wrestled. I think everyone under 157 lost only to All Americans. Speaks more to the bad draw they got than to poor wrestling. I do agree that a few of the Mizzou guys wrestled below their seeds, but many did not. Especially proud of Surtain who was a backup for 99% of the season. He did well enough at MAC championships to get to the nationals and wrestled tough (but lost) to two AA's.
  14. Love the performance and potential of O'Toole, but let's not overlook another great job. Rocky Elam, also a true freshman. His path to a medal this year may have been the toughest path of anyone in the tournament. He met and beat several top seeds to become an All American. Future looking bright for Mizzou!

    I understand Schmitt is a grad student, so don't know if he returns. It'll be fun.

    Where will Josh Edmond fit into the lineup next year? Are there any other backups expected to break into the starting lineup next year.? Connor Brown should be back after his injury. Doesn't appear that Mizzou will lose any starters. Also, what about the rumor that Mizzou will change conference for wrestling next year. Any updates to that rumor?
  17. No pick for first/second? I'm waiting with baited breath! (whatever the hell that means)
  18. Wrestling has begun. ESPN+ coverage doesn't begin till 3:30 this afternoon. I checked Track Wrestling and they're showing results "after the match" but seems like no live scoring. Anywhere I can get live scoring?
  19. Anyone know a start time for action on Friday? Also, any idea where we can see a live broadcast? Thx
  20. I think it was on a Missouri wrestling blog. Haven't heard anything official from the University or the coaching staff. Sounded as if the move was already discussed and agreed to though. Getter better competition from the BIG 1 would be very welcome.
  21. As a side note, I understand Mizzou wrestling is moving to the BIG 12 conference next season, correct? If so, that will increase their "in conference" competition over the MAC group.
  22. Glad to hear some of the newer Mizzou wrestlers will participate. Mizzou has a very deep group of quality wrestlers. It'll be great to see how well they compete with this quality group of wrestlers.
  23. It's ridiculous to suggest that Mizzou could "flake out" as if they're scared of the competition. If Brian Smith skips the event it's in the best interest of his team's health. NOT to get a better seed!
  24. This Challenge is scheduled for Sunday the 14th. I've heard rumors that Mizzou is skipping this due to the COVID risk less than two weeks from the MAC championships. The Mizzou website still shows this on the Mizzou schedule. Anyone know for sure what's going on,...one way or the other? While I understand the risk, I'd love to see Oklahoma State and Mizzou wrestle (if they can do it safely). Thanks
  25. I'm looking forward to the match in a week and a half with Rocky Elam! As you might guess, I'm picking Rocky to win. Go Mizzou!
