  1. This thread is HILARIOUS, going from TOP High School Wrestlers don't know who John Smith is, to do videos even exist from 1987? LOL, Lets run with this how about did Buses/Vans/Cars or planes exist back then, or did teams get to the tournaments/matches by Horse Wagon? too funny.
  2. At Penn State, is it a given Kerkvliet will beat out S. Nevills? I see on the Threads it seems most people think Kerkvliet will get the spot, S. Nevills was 169-1 In High School, and 28-2 in College the 2 losses were to good Wrestlers and one was what was kind of his Senior year in High School (He graduated 6 months early and was training at PSU,) Nevills is 9-0 so far this his Freshman season, Kerkvliet ALSO won everything in High School and was 4 time State Champion, He is 5-0 in College 3 by fall and 2 close decisions, Not being an Insider this looks like an Interesting Wrestleoff, similar credentials (In Folkstyle/College Style) so why do MOST threads seem to indicate the spot is Kerkvliet's? Thank you in advance.
  3. When I saw the title of this thread, I thought Jaden Abas would of been one of the 3 Redshirts pulled, as he has a good record 18-4 and he comes from a Wrestling Family who had lots of success in the sport, He did not, but since this is a thread on Stanford, how did Abas lose a 16-0 Technical Fall to a 7-4 Wrestler, I have seen fluke pins and upsets where the underdog stays close and edges the favorite out, but I cant remember a 16-0 Tech fall, where the Underdog (And looking at their Records and past History that is an upset) totally dominated the favorite, does anyone know what happened in that match (It was 11-24-19 at the Roadrunner Open) Thank you in advance.
  4. 1980's Oklahoma State beats Iowa 24-6, But Iowa won the NCAA Team Title.
  5. Not Harder, but Different. Any Part that has a history of being injured WILL BE TARGETED In MMA.
  6. If he goes to MMA/UFC Remember he is Injury Prone, With College Wrestling it is Takedown, Contain, Control, escape with MMA/UFC it is To Force a Surrender and Knockout, Basically to injure hurt, I am sure he would be a handful for ANYONE when healthy, but a history of injuries, in a sport with the goal of making a Person who is a Warrior, who has a NEVER quit mindset, probably wont end well. I Hope I am wrong and he has a Great Career.
  7. Yojiro Uetake NOT among the Top 10???????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  9. This hurts, Him and Lee Roy Smith let me try to be on the Wrestling team, now the only 2 coaches I had are gone Seay and TJ Kerr, I am glad he gave me the opportunity it was fun Wrestling 5 years in college. Great people in wrestling and it is a fun workout, he helped me a lot even though I did not start/make the team. It hurts when people die, although I personally believe people just go to the next phase in Heaven/Afterlife
  10. He got caught with a knee to the temple, in the striking sports it can happen 1 great shot ends the fight, Someone tweeted right before the fight that he had practiced the knee to the head for weeks and would try it right away, obviously Askren was not expecting it, with punches you can watch the shoulders to know where and when the punches will come from and either avoid or move with it to take the steam off it. So many things people can do in UFC you can't defend everything, much better to be offensive/seek and destroy type fighter in that sport in my opinion.
  11. Dale Lewis NEVER WRESTLED before College was a 2 time NCAA Champion. Huge credit to the Coaches to take a kid from Scratch Champion, it seems most NCAA Champions were 3-4 time State Champions with well over 100 High School wins (Some closer to 200) and you can count their losses on one hand and have fingers left over (0-4 losses total), Many started at age 5-8, I guess the one thing Lewis had going with starting in College, he had extremely good coaching from the beginning. Also I don't know if he was an NCAA Champion, but didn't Bob Roop (Who Represented the USA in the Olympics) I heard he was like Zero wins and 30 losses in the 10th Grade? Also I heard Myron Roderick lost most of his matches in 10th grade, many by pin and then he won 2 State Titles (Kansas I think) Then he won 3 NCAA Titles.
  12. That makes sense, was not a starter on his College team, so leave school and concentrate on winning World/Olympic Titles. GENIUS THINKING
  13. Joe Seay never Wrestled for the Cowboys, He Wrestled for Kansas State, E.C. Gallegher NEVER WRESTLED, but He was the Wrestling Coach at Oklahoma State (EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL), I hope John Smith coaches for 20-30 more years, but based on Gallegher's Success, when Smith decides to retire, and the same with Brands at Iowa, Maybe they should go with someone who has never wrestled and see if he can emulate the success Gallagher had as a Wrestling coach. few if any have suggested a person who has never wrestled to lead a top program, but 11 NCAA titles and 19 Undefeated seasons, maybe that is the way to go, results speak louder than words, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_C._Gallagher
