    LaxHawk174 got a reaction from NYWRESTLER94 in I really enjoyed the Myles Martin era   
    Bo didn't get caught on his back from his throw, he had an underhook and tried a far ankle pick while Martin had a over/under body luck and used the momentum to throw Nickal to his back.  Thats how it looked from my perspective. I think Nickal is the better wrestler, but he definitely didn't gift Martin the win like he did Jackson in the dual meet. He just wrestled sloppy and got beat on the biggest stage IMO.  I think we'll see a few rematches in the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons up at 184, maybe even in the finals.

    21Guns, in addition to being horribly off on his information and assessment (re: Gavin will never see 113 again) has become a cancer on several message boards.
     
    his dismay that teasdale and lee went to iowa is palpable.
     
    in that way, he makes himself believe anything he can that could mean difficulty for those two and iowa.

    Lots of great options.  Those guys you mentioned, Mike Kemerer, Alex Marinelli, Nick Piccininni (todays result doesn't sour me on his potential), Jered Cortez (if we're counting him?  He may be a sophomore eligibility wise), somebody from Cornell nobody is thinking of yet....
     
    It's going to be a really good year.

    LaxHawk174 reacted to rossel3 in Spencer Lee registered for Vegas...   
    This. 
     
    Lemonpie calls Lee's entering at 50kg a joke, something that undoubtedly had a lot to do with Lee deciding on Iowa. 
     
    Lee is relatively small, and by most everything I've read, including CP,  he sounds like a smaller kid than Teasdale despite the HS weights that they wrestled at this past season. Different kids grow differently, and it sounds likely that Teasdale will wrestle at a heavier weight than Lee in college.
     
    Lee had surgery for a torn labrum as most everyone knows. If he wants to wrestle at 50kg as he goes into FS, it's his call.

    LaxHawk174 reacted to wrestlingnerd in Spencer Lee registered for Vegas...   
    Remember he had an extremely debilitating shoulder injury that even prevented him from running for several months. He may actually be smaller this year than last year, when he could train hard and lift weights. There has to have been a decent amount of atrophy on his upper body given the injury. That could also be a consideration for not wanting to wrestle a weight higher than his natural weight. Why risk injury for an event that is effectively meaningless to his future, since he already has a gold medal?

    I might get ripped for saying this, but, there are many Penn State fans that annoy the hell out of me too, and I'm a PSU fan.  However, you can't paint with a broad brush.  I will admit that I cringe at some of the comments while sitting at Rec Hall.  There is a large portion of fans who obviously jumped on board the bandwagon five years ago.  They annoy the "true" PSU fans just as much as they annoy other fan bases.  The ones that annoy me the most are the ones who expect everyone to go out and destroy their opponent to the level of Taylor, Ruth, Retherford & Nolf.  They throw out negative comments like "He's wrestling terrible" or "He should be embarrassed"  If I point out to them that the PSU wrestler is wrestling a returning All-American who is ranked higher, I usually get a "I don't care who he's wrestling response"
     
    It is quite easy to differentiate the true PSU fans from the bandwagon jumpers.  When I'm around the PSU fans, I do my best to ignore the bandwagoners and really enjoy my conversations with the true fans.  When I'm at Nationals and the Scuffle this year, this is my order of who I'm watching:
     
    1.  PSU wrestlers
    2.  Pennsylvania high school alumni
    3.  Wrestlers on teams in close competition with PSU
    4.  Wrestlers from other PA colleges
    5.  Wrestlers I enjoy watching
    6.  Anyone - It's D1 wrestling, and I love every damn second of it
     
    I've gone to PA states for 16 years straight now, and many other years.  I love watching the guys that I've followed since high school.  The ones who really fire me up are the ones who really had to work for it and improve every year from their freshman year of high school.  They may not all get to a Jason Nolf level, but, guys like James English and Jordan Conaway come to mind.  
     
    Of course I'm enjoying the PSU success, I've followed them since the days of Rich Lorenzo, and who wouldn't enjoy their favorite team having this kind of success.  I just wanted to point out and admit that their is a decent-sized portion of PSU wrestling fans who jumped on the bandwagon five years ago, but, there are also a LOT of great PSU fans out there who have been following PA wrestling and PSU wrestling for years and years.

    1. You must insist Taylor was not pinned by Jenkins.
     
    2. Years prior to 2011 do not count.
     
    3. It isn't good enough to say Cael is one of the best coaches, you must concede that he is far and away the greatest coach in the sport today; however at the same time...........
     
    4. You must criticize Tom Brands for not beating Cael at Nationals and insist he is not a good coach.
     
    5. The Iowa State things never happened.
     
    6. You must yell "he's not having fun" at the opposing wrestler 10 times during a match, even when the Penn State guy isn't smiling.
     
    7. After a win you must talk about the importance of bonus points and how Cael was the first person to think of this.
     
    8. Whenever someone mentions a good crowd at a non-PSU meet you must bring up the fact that PSU could sell more tickets but they like the "intimate" atmosphere of Rec Hall.
     
    9. You must insist 2015 never happened AND when confronted with video evidence to the contrary, say it was just to give other teams a chance.
     
    10. Anyone who does not agree to the letter with any of these statements must be considered a "Hater"
