    dougb reacted to steamboat_charlie v2 in New Penn State transfer   
    It's his third school in three years.  I don't know what he thinks he's going to find at PSU, but more power to him. 
    Will be interesting when he gets there and finds out (or doesn't) that the "secret" is a lot of hard work, and that transferring, in and of itself, does not make you a better wrestler.

    dougb got a reaction from potentiallydangerous in Would Gable Steveson Win Every Weight?   
    Yes they both moved up because YOU have a hard time respecting anyone under 149,   And just think some people (Including Me) think Dake moved up for the Challenge of winning in 4 Weights and the Challenge David Taylor presented.  We were ALL wrong,  They moved up solely because they were worried YOU would not respect their Achievements,  LOL

    Yes this is true. he was a three time state champion going into his senior year, but unfortunately the IHSA canceled the state tournament before the season even started citing COVID concerns.  At that point he shifted his focus to getting ready for the next level.  I believe he even graduated high school a semester early.  The kid is truly a special talent with the work ethic to match.

    Hamiti is a True Freshman and I heard he did not Wrestle his Senior Year due to Covid,  And he has a 17-0 with 88% Bonus Points Record against Division 1 Wrestlers.
     
    Is this correct?    If yes AMAZING

    Why would he want to rule high school when he is a top 3 coach in college?

    John Smith concentrates on the job and doesn't let anything else intrude. Too many of the kids don't do that and you can see it bothers him. If he had a team with the same dedication he has they would be winning it all at least two out of every three years.

    Alaska-Pacific DID have a varsity wrestling program at one time and they were quite good.  https://johnnythompsonnum1.blogspot.com/2020/07/gone-lost-forgotten-their-best-alaska.html  

    As to Hawaii and your analysis, that IS what they did for a time period.   They had wrestling In the 30's & 40's and 50's & dropped it sometime around the Korean War.   

    Then the Rainbow Warriors brought wrestling back for a short spell in the 70's.  A member of the PAC-12 conference (what would now be the PAC-12 anyway) they routinely finished in last place, with dual records, indicating about three to at most five duals per year.

    This is a "free year" in terms of eligibility. It doesn't count against your 4 years. There is no point to redshirt anyone.

    dougb got a reaction from Mphillips in How is covid affecting the college season?   
    If they can play Football (And they have been playing this year)  they should be able to do any Sport  (I know Wrestling also has contact as part of the sport)  if they play Football and cancel the other sport, it would look like they used football as a money grab as it along with basketball produce most of the revenue, if that happens it would give Football players more leverage in asking to be paid.
    For what it is worth Bethune Cookman which does NOT have a Wrestling team just recently it announced no sports until at least the beginning of the 21-22 school year in September 2021, will others follow?

    One of my buddies coaches Bud Crawford's kids in a youth wrestling club in Omaha.  Obviously everything is on hold right now but when practices and tournaments resume, I could have him ask the champ his thoughts on the subject.  I know that there is definitely a ton of mutual respect between athletes in these combat sports, otherwise a man who is arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world probably wouldn't be dragging his kids to wrestling practices and kids' tournaments on Sundays (and yes, he does go to the tournaments).
