  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. That makes sense, was not a starter on his College team, so leave school and concentrate on winning World/Olympic Titles. GENIUS THINKING
  4. 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
  5. What about Kaleb Young 5th at 157 in NCAA ? I think he is a Sophomore. Also Do they burn incoming Freshman Assad's shirt when they have Cash Wilke? Also does Spencer Lee take an Olympic Redshirt?
  6. A lot depends will Spencer Lee take either an Olympic Redshirt or his regular Redshirt, Same with Penn State Hall AndJoseph, And Oklahoma State Daton Fix, A million other things can happen in a year, Injuries, Transfers etc.
  7. To compete for the team you have to be signed up for 12 units (NCAA RULE), If you just want to work out that is entirely the coach's decision, I went to Bakersfield when Coach Kerr was there, so good luck at Bakersfield.
  8. No wonder he is as good as he is, with a name like that he undoubtedly got teased continuously growing up. LOL
  9. Wrestling may not seem so important to him now, so close to the family tragedy. Condolences to the Smith family.
  10. Mauller What a great Wrestling Name, a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago there was a Pro Wrestler called the Missouri Mauller, now there is a Wrestler named Mauller Wrestling for Missouri, Wonder if the coach tells him before the match, go out and Maul him, LOL
  11. Dale Lewis Won 2 NCAA titles, he NEVER WRESTLED IN HIGH SCHOOL, https://nwhof.org/blog/dg-inductees/dale-lewis/
  12. Pittsburgh has a VERY GOOD 133 pounder in Micky Phillipi (As you know) If Teasdale were a 133 he would be unlikely to go to a school that already has a good 133.
  13. Teasdale is a VERY SMALL 125 pounder, I heard he can eat a large pizza, drink a liter of soda and have a hot fudge sundae for desert, wake up in the morning and still be under 125 with clothes and shoes on.
  14. Same as the question, where does the Bear go? The answer, wherever he damn well pleases.
  15. I noticed the 141 Pounder from NorthWestern also has the last name McKenna, I would not consider it ducking if they are related brothers or cousins as many in combat sports wont go against family in competition in Boxing The Klitchko brothers were considered the 2 best Heavyweights for years, but they said many times they would not fight each other, same with the Charlo Brothers. Also for it to be ducking, The person not competing would have to have some/reasonable chance to lose.
  16. Just have a BLIND DRAW at NCAA, and that would make protecting seeds irrelevant, with a blind draw there is a possibility the 2 best would meet in the first round, but the best will rise to the top regardless.
  17. How many people did Dan Gable duck either as a competitor or having one of his athletes not wrestle because they MIGHT lose?I think they should just have a blind draw at NCAA's, so the seedings become irrelevant. Just my opinion, it is more honorable to battle and lose, than it is to not compete at all because you might lose. Brands never came across to me as the type of person who looked for the easy way or the kind to pad records by avoiding tough competition, I guess I was wrong.
  18. So the top 2 at 125 in the Iowa VS Northwesten match will they wrestle? or Duck each other until Conference?
  19. The Motivated Athlete/s as most at PSU and other top schools are ALWAYS WANT Training to be as hard as possible, which is fun to them, The motivated athlete is always on a thin line with breaking down from illness/injury do to wanting to train as much as possible, sometimes they go over the line, A big part of a coaches job is to keep them from doing too much and peaking at the right time.
  20. Maybe it was a typo, meaning 2012-2020, to talk about next year? Hall and Cenzo could go in as favorites, as could Shakur if he gets a 6th year.
  21. I just do not like the ducking by ANYONE, They should just have a blind draw at NCAA's, so there are no seeds to protect, Stoll is VERY GOOD and he would have a legitimate shot at upsetting Steveson, not wrestling because you Might get injured because you have been injured before, what if you slip and fall on your stairs at your house? do you never use the upstairs, have an elevator installed? or try again, you can get injured in practice, you can get injured against a non ranked wrestler, just do your best and let the chips fall where they may.
  22. Looks like Stoll decided to be a COWARD AGAIN, I am surprised Brands Recruits Wrestlers who puss out when they Wrestle someone they might lose to, These ARE NOT Gable's Wrestlers. It is better to battle and lose than to just be a coward. I know Stoll and Brands would disagree.
