    LaxHawk174 reacted to LemonPie in Vincenzo Joseph is he a top 4 guy????   
    He also has FS bias going for him. FS results arent supposed to count, but they do. Wins over Smith, Valencia, and Kutler. 
    I think Flo's ranking of 6th is fair.

    LaxHawk174 got a reaction from dtl38 in Champs   
    Still the same
    133, 141, and 174 are the only weights I think could change.  
    133 is stacked, NaTo, Richards, Montoya, Brock, and Gross will make for a very fun weight class in St. Louis. 
    141 is pretty even across the board, but Heil is the master of close matches. Wouldn't surprise me to see Kolodzik, Ashnault, Jack, McKenna, or Ward win it all. 
    174 I think the upper tier is BoJo, Zahid, Epperly, Realbuto, and Preisch. Crutchmer could punch a ticket to the finals, but he could also place 7/8 with his style. 
    Don't see anybody beating Gilman, Retherford, Nolf, IMar, Dean, Cox, or Snyder.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it kept growing like The Blob and eventually takes over the whole screen.  Maybe the wrestlers will bump into it and fall down.  STAY TUNED

    Having thought about it some more, I think the best part is actually the clock counting down from 10 seconds over and over again.  HOF broadcast, TBH.

    He had FS wins over McGhee and Cruz before going to college.  Stud.   If he was ever overlooked, it was because he was always losing to Lee, Suriano, and Fix.  No shame in that.   But he did own wins over guys like Austin Gomez.

    LaxHawk174 reacted to LoStNuMbEr in 2 Time+ Champs with the strongest field   
    There has been some discussion in recent threads about how strong the relative fields were for recent dominant wrestlers and that got me thinking.  Originally I was going to make this a GOAT discussion but that narrows the field a lot, so I thought lets open it up to anyone who won at least two titles.
    Which guys had the strongest weight classes overall and which had the weakest?  I think Metcalf wins the title for winning the strongest weight of all time, but Burroughs is right up there with him for the year that him, Poeta, Leen, and Gillespie were all in the semis.  I believe Poeta, Gillsepie and Burroughs were all undefeated, and Leen was the defending champ whose only loss was to burroughs (but I could be wrong on that).
    Off the top of my head:
    David Taylor
    These aren't gospel or anything, just a few quick back of the napkin ideas. What do you guys think?

    LaxHawk174 reacted to Pinnum in Medical Redshirt   
    If prior to a third of the team's scheduled dates have passed, you sustain an injury that prevents you from competing, you are permitted to redshirt for that season.
    However, you're only permitted to redshirt once.  So if you've elected to use a redshirt prior (due to just being unable to start and wanting to spend a year getting acclimated to college and wrestling) you may not use a second redshirt year.
    If you have already had a season cut short due to documented injury that met the criteria above, and you have a second season cut short, you're able to apply for a medical hardship waiver which may be applied to your sixth season of competition.  However, this is rare since you must still be in school in the sixth year (most often a graduate program) and you must have missed two prior seasons due to injury.

    Maybe...just maybe...Joey Silva is really good.  Cary Kolat was equally dominant in hs and was tied (and outwrestled) by Bono at the Dapper Dan.  Lee impressed me by winning a very deep weight.  Decatur, who tOSU is thrilled to have as a verbal commit, took 5th.  Dustin Schlatter, who remains on the short list of finest hs wrestlers in American history, took 5th at the Ironman as a soph.
