    NCAA will make rulings that anyone who takes money or remuneration in any form can't participate in Championship competition.
    CA will get NO championship events at all.

    No they would have lost by 5 pts to Cornell assuming his stand in either DNQ or DNP, which is likely.
     
    Long scored 18.5 pts, same # as Ruth and 1 less than David Taylor.

    Whether you accept this as truth or not is irrelevant.  His dad is sick and he wants to be close to his dad; end of story.

    If teasdale would have ran to Iowa second semester and started with no second thought about it, then it would be an equal comparison.
    That would never have happened though.

    BLT reacted to russelscout in Teasdale Interview   
    I didnt see where Desanto was kicked off the team. Sources? However, all these things are true to a degree. I'm not gonna argue every small thing as I havent brought up every small thing about PSU... but Long ended up in Prison, right? You really want to compare a DUI on a moped with Marion to a rape charge with Long? I realize that is your go to arguement every time someone brings up Caels mistakes FlyingTiger but frankly, it's not a good one.
    You can pull a whataboutBrands all day long. When it comes to Cael, his lack of intervention at least played a part in enabling Andrew Longs behavior which led to what it did. I mean, is anyone surprised to hear Teasdale say what he did? It's pretty consistent with what we knew all along.

    I'd like to see Murin up at 149 next year (assuming some combination of Teasdale/Renteria/Desanto doesn't leave them with a hole at 141) if for no other reason than he's their long term plan there after Lugo graduates. 
    I think people, myself included, may have underestimated how much he was cutting last year and how much it affected him. I think the cut mitigated a lot of his power. Last summer, at 143.5 with night before weigh ins, he looked really big and strong, to the point where he actually muscled a bigger Sammy Sasso around quite a bit with his snaps. As the season wore on, he didn't have that same juice in his snaps and without it, he wasn't able to move guys as well, which his offense depended on. 
    For some perspective, he definitely has the frame to be a big 149. He's listed at 5'8, 3 inches taller than Pat Lugo and right in the average range for a 149.

    BLT reacted to NJDan in The Yianni Challenge   
    This is a fair point as there was confusion about what was being challenged. But since the result was to take two points AWAY from Yianni (cutting him from 8 to 6) rather than to award two to Zain, it's clear the committee reviewed the score that was 20 or 30 seconds before the brick.
    Also, the "continuous action" theory is not an excuse. That theory might justify the ref waiting to whistle the action dead despite a brick being thrown. It does NOT justify a late brick.

    Waiting until the match is over and your guy lost and there is not risk of a lost challenge point hurting you is not a reasonable time frame.

    BLT reacted to NJDan in The Yianni Challenge   
    People have to distinguish between two aspects of the possible challenge: 
    The scoring of the sequence where Yianni was eventually awarded two back points was a judgment call and a tough one. So I agree that that aspect will be hard to challenge. But the five second rule is not a judgment call. Because the brick was not thrown within five seconds or anything close to five seconds, there should have been NO review and the score should have remained 8-6 in favor of Yianni. This was a clear error. Also, this was not a case where the score went on the board late. So there was no excuse for not throwing the brick on time.
    Parenthetically, while I don't know what Cael was thinking, he might have been waiting to throw the brick because he thought Zain had a good chance to score from the position he was in. Then the match ended and Zain had not scored. At that point he threw the brick. This is gamesmanship even if it was not conscious gamesmanship. And this is the kind of action that the the five second rule seems designed to prevent. Toss your brick or keep your peace.

    Getting ridiculous. College is a safe haven from the real world. Coaches want their athletes to stay for selfish reasons. Some athletes can’t fathom dealing with a real job. If a wrestler hasn’t learned the valuable lessons that the sport teaches by age 22, it’s likely those lessons will never be learned. So a guy sticks around another year and wins a few more matches. Honestly, who really gives a darn. But, to each his own.

    For those that don't like the 6-year plan, wait until we have some of these 8-year guys roll around with their four year greyshirt, olympic redshirt, standard redshirt, medical redshirt plans.  Guys could literally be headed grad school by the time they use their first season of "eligibility."  Throw in your standard elementary and middle school "redshirts" and you've got a 30 year old 6x redshirt senior.  
     
    I actually don't mind the injury redshirt, but I think it should be established that you qualify for the exception much closer to the actual injury taking place.  As it stands currently, coaches' can play both sides knowing full well the committee is just going to rubber stamp a 6th year if a guy (a) didn't hit 30% of competitions and (B) gets a note from the team doc saying he was dinged up.
