  1. Anyone know when Stanford will release a schedule. 2021 is their last season, right....I didn't miss something????
  2. All I have is a few good reputable friends of mine who said that Brian Smith told them that Mizzou was going back to the Big 12 at the CMU-Wyoming match.
  3. Since Mizzou already wrestles the top Big 12 teams, I wonder if their schedule will change much when they rejoin the Big 12 next year?
  4. Anyone know where we can watch the Mizzou-Arizona State Match? (Besides Ames IA)
  5. Are wrestlers in these states still required to wear masks during the match? How is it working? Genuinely curious. Here in Missouri, we're not wearing masks during the match.
  6. Anyone know why o'toole didn't wrestle?
  7. Modern hip replacements are different...I am in my mid fifties and had one in September. I was doing construction work 7 days after surgery. 6 weeks after surgery I was released to do any gym exercise...including squats deadlifts etc...and I'm a fat tub of goo. So a highly trained athlete like Askren should be able to box half a year after surgery.
  8. Have any other schools/conferences beside the Ivy announced that they are cancelling the 2021 wrestling season?
  9. ...And as late as 1961 Dietrich wrestled 87kg (191lbs) . So he wasn't a really big guy. Obviously very strong and scouted Taylor and used his momentum.
  10. My brother, my son and myself all wrestled and were state champions. I was the heaviest of them all. Can still make my high school weight class...Unlimited. My poor mom has been fortunate/unfortunate to see about 500 wrestling matches. She used to take the street car to see professional wrestling matches when she was 11 years old in 1950.
  11. And the trees are all kept equal By hatchet Axe And saw Or the social media versions of hatchets axes and saws. I just heard this Rush song "Trees" this morning and found it pertinent to what is going on now.
  12. There is unrest in the forest There is trouble with the trees For the maples want more sunlight And the oaks ignore their pleas The trouble with the maples And they're quite convinced they're right They say the oaks are just too lofty And they grab up all the light But the oaks can't help their feelings If they like the way they're made And they wonder why the maples Can't be happy in their shade? There is trouble in the forest And the creatures all have fled As the maples scream, "oppression" And the oaks just shake their heads So the maples formed a union And demanded equal rights "The oaks are just too greedy We will make them give us light" Now there's no more oak oppression For they passed a noble law And the trees are all kept equal By hatchet Axe And saw
  13. This is really incredible. 15 years before "The Throw" Dietrich was wrestling 190lbs--87kg! So its unlikely he was much more than 245lbs--110kg in 1972. Taylor was 440lbs--200kgs (the weight class wasn't 130kgs!),
  14. In 1918, during the Spanish Flu, the treatment for the flu was bloodletting, and laxitives. Probably better to not to see a doctor. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/the-1918-influenza-pandemic-how-far-have-we-come/
