  1. Hold on ONE second...... there is no Bigfoot??!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I didn’t “cook” it up and I’m surely not going to grow old worrying about it. Again - it was a discussion topic and I was discussing. Yes - you are paranoid and apparently obsessive b/c you simply cannot let a post go by without arguing unless it says “penn State is the greatest, will always be the greatest, and never has done anything wrong, nor will they ever do anything wrong in the future”. And I put the odds at much higher than slim to none. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. You are so paranoid. Relax dude. This is a discussion, and I am simply discussing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. There are a ton out there. We got some this year and were able to choose from many companies.
  5. Ive obviously missed quite a few pages of this thread over the weekend, but wanted to answer you - I dont know who is doing what. Im just saying that this is what causes questions to come up, and I have heard it talked about generally within college sports (not just wrestling and RTCs). I posted on here years ago that a guy worked for me who is a PSU Letterman's Club member (played football back in the 70's) told me that he had no concerns about PSU losing schoolies back when they were on probation because there was a "fund" to pay back kids student loans when they graduate, so they'd still get enough guys to have a decent team. I got lambasted on here for even bringing it up and I have no idea if there is any truth to it. That said, I would not be surprised one iota if there are slush funds out there for the big programs. And I am not saying this would be PSU specific, TBar, so chill.
  6. I don’t think people have an issue with the guys being signed to contracts and actually Wrestling. It’s the payoff of student loans to ex-athletes who are NOT members of the RTC that is questionable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. B/c it’s the same 5 or 6 guys arguing “The sky is blue” “No way - Webster’s defines “sky” as.....” “You must be an idiot b/c....” “That is not how you define something. Cael said so” “Oh - here we go, every thread has to turn into a Cael-Bash. Everyone hates Penn State....” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I got a free pair of Cage Fighter shoes once - they are horrendous. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  11. Yep - I was just gonna say that. Or Coleman Scott but he's less decorated tban Angle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. I was just using it the other day - worked fine on my end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Gotta say - Gavin really upped the Pitt schedule - gonna be a TOUGH year: Wisconsin Arizona St Cliff Keen Oklahoma NDSU Va Tech UNC NCSU SDSU UVA Lehigh (Yes - I know UVA, VT, UNC and NC St are league matches and are not picked by Gavin/the AD) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. This has been one of my biggest gripes with Flo. Its really not that hard to either (1) get it right during the interview, or (2) fix it after. Sometimes it is painful to watch/listen to the interviews, podcasts, etc.
  15. Correct - this is one of the "One M" Kemerers.
  16. I think they are great recruits for us right now. Matthews is definitely the higher rated guy and probably is the more exciting recruit for us, but I think Luke has a high ceiling. We also just got a commit from Louis Newell (he finished 8th, 2nd, 2nd at states so far). Loading up on the lightweights right now.
  17. Mikey is definitely sitting this year. Forys has mentioned redshirting so he could wrestle his final year with a chance to wrestle NCAAs at home and Peters never afforded him the opportunity to redshirt
  18. Ive got a feeling he redshirts this year. Who knows tho.
  19. Just read this article and its great to see these guys getting a financial reward for their efforts http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2017/August/31/Living-Dream-Medal-Fund-provides-270K-to-2017-World-medalists What I loved to see the most, though, is a woman wrestler number 2 and 5 on the all time cash list for the LDMF, and there are 4 of the top 8 are also women (2 tied for 7th with $50k): Career LDMF bonuses $465,000 – Jordan Burroughs $365,000 – Helen Maroulis $350,000 – Kyle Snyder $265,000 – Jake Varner $130,000 – Adeline Gray $65,000 – Elena Pirozhkova $50,000 – Logan Stieber, Alli Ragan $40,000 – James Green, J’den Cox $30,000 – Andy Bisek, Tervel Dlagnev $25,000 – Coleman Scott, Clarissa Chun, Jake Herbert, Dremiel Byers, Thomas Gilman $15,000 – Leigh Jaynes-Provisor, Alyssa Lampe, Ali Bernard, Tatiana Padilla, Becka Leathers, Nick Gwiazdowski The 2017 Worlds was the highest payout to our athletes ever (surpassing the 2015 Worlds) in a non-Olympic year; however, in 2016, the LDMF paid out $600k (mainly because it paid out $250k to both Helen and Kyle for Olympic Golds).
  20. Ok. I was just curious why you thought that. I'm not a huge MMA follower Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. Vish is definitely a wrestling supporter and has done a ton for the team recently.
