  1. Condensed Talent, Good For Fans, HORRIBLE for Participation, Maybe they can add Division 2 and 3 and NAIA and Just have one Division?
  2. He got into Stanford which is similar to the Ivy League academically, plus he is a high level athlete, My GUESS is he gets in.
  3. Princeton? has some good Wrestlers and is like Stanford Academically.
  4. My Friend Irleis "Cubanito" Perez knows Haugen , he went to Haugen's wedding, Perez had signed to fight then Champion Haugen for the Title, and then Bob Arum had Perez sign to face Pazienza in his first Defense (Contingent on Perez beating Haugen) Haugen's team decided to fight Pazienza and NOT Perez, Haugen's OWN TEAM said they wanted to fight Pazienza, because Pazienza was an easier fight for more Money, So Perez and Haugen NEVER FOUGHT, they were good friends, but Perez was upset (Which Haugen's team said they totally understand) They were interviewed together by Al Bernstein and Perez Called Haugen a Chicken Champion who was more interested in making money. That was the end of that friendship.

  6. They only fought once, https://boxrec.com/en/proboxer/8684
  7. The Hearns VS Hagler Fight was over in the 3rd Round about 8 Minutes, It was all out war the Whole Fight, even though it was over in 3 Rounds it was am Amazing Pace, Rarely Seen.
  8. With The Spanish Flu in 1918 just like the current Pandemic, The first wave killed mostly elderly, the 2nd Wave in 1918 killed Mostly 20-35 Year Old's as the Virus Mutated and went after people with stronger immune systems https://www.history.com/news/spanish-flu-second-wave-resurgence They are saying it is important for ALL NCAA Sports that Football be played, but even if the Virus does not go after younger people, A LOT of NCAA Football Players (Linemen ) have an underlying condition Obesity, I read about a 22 Year Old Florida State Football Player who had it and has recovered, he said it was the sickest he ever was. So this should be discussed. With Wrestling Very few if any non heavyweights would be considered Obese, but when you are in really great shape, you are redlining it with your Immune System, That is why Athletes who are in great shape get sick so often Also COVID 19 is a respiratory Virus, which tend to be worse November to February, same as Peak Wrestling Season. Many who have recovered from Covid 19 have damaged T-Cells and Less Lung Capacity. I know EXTREMELY LITTLE about Pandemics and Viruses, but all these things seem VERY important, but is rarely discussed, seems all doom and gloom for sports for at least a year and maybe more. Is there anyone who knows about this kind of stuff? It looks like the worst is yet to come.
  9. I wrestled at 142 and 150 (1 Time in a Duel at 158 and weighed 141 for that one LOL) When I did the underwater weigh in AND the Calipers I was always 4.5-4.9 ate whatever I wanted Shakes, Large Pizza's etc. Just ran 7 up to 12 Miles every morning lifted 3 times a week, and did the team workout, usually 6 days a week, The highest I ever got during the off season was 153, I never cut weight, just worked out a lot Ran Cross Country (Ran in the Morning, Wrestling in the Afternoon and Wrestled Simultaneously, Ran Track immediately after Wrestling, When I went home for the summer worked out at the Boxing club. Note the Weights were different then 118,126,134, 142, 150, 158, 167, 177,190 Heavyweight Unlimited NOT 286
  10. Yes AND The School as well. https://www.whio.com/news/local/urbana-university-will-close-ceasing-enrollments/NKEGT4EMKFDRLH7KZSMDVAQ6NY/
  11. I saw this, LSU has No Wrestling Program anymore, but this gives you an Idea of how NCAA Football Carries the Other Programs. https://www.axios.com/newsletters/axios-sports-09309f8c-9702-4cc6-b640-b4c2523f76b6.html?chunk=1&utm_term=twsocialshare#story1 Do ANY Wrestling Schools make Money ?(Penn State, Iowa, Ok State ETC? ) Thank You in advance.
  12. Zahid was NOT affected by the NCAA Cancellation, as he was not going to compete in it anyway.
  13. They should just let ANY Student who takes a Full Class Schedule (Usually 12 Units) Compete as many years as they want (Maybe have a maximum of 4 years on scholarship) If they are Financially able to do it why not? You get a great workout, have fun and improve, some will be late bloomers, maybe pretty good at age 18, but incredible in late 20's or early 30's, eventually have someone win 10-15 or more NCAA titles, Have College Wrestling Versions of Boxers George Foreman and Bernard Hopkins winning titles at age 40's to 50's, Not going to happen, but it would be great.
  14. Will this be over by Next Year? The Spanish Flu of 1918 was 3 Years, The Plague of 1347 was 7 Years, A Doctor/Virologist said it would take 2-3 Years for a Vaccine as this is new and there is none yet and they have to experiment on Animals first, He said it will almost certainly get a lot worse before it gets better. It did not seem very optimistic.
