  1. I was able to walk to the fridge all the way back at 7 months ;)
  2. He shouldn't. I'm an out of shape 39 year old who had his 2nd ACL tear in the past 5 years. I had surgery in late May and I'm a few weeks away from full clearance. It's an 8 month injury these days. He should be completely fine for next season.
  3. His post was wrong. Twice. That's not a big deal but it does make it totally okay to knock his post.
  4. If someone said his actual list was wrong that would matter. Instead they called into question his wrestling history based on this post being completely wrong. Then you played white knight and said his wrestling history was right. Maybe you should have confirmed it actually was right before being offended anyone questioned it.
  5. He knows history except for the part where he missed the number of AA medals by around 100.
  6. I also thought it was odd he said they have 153 AA wrestlers with only 173 medals. There is no way that's right. They have tons of multiple medalists so if they really had 153 they'd have a lot more than 173 medals.
  7. I agree he should do that. I think he's an idiot for not doing that. I wouldn't recruit kids who did this if I was a coach. But I 'm okay with him being on scholarship for wrestling ability and passing classes rather than for kindness. I think he'd have to go much further than disrespecting Jordan Burroughs for me to think he's somehow breaking faith with the university or failing to live up to his end of his scholarship.
  8. So a scholarships is a privilege that is connected in some way to humility? Or to keeping it classy on twitter? I completely get knocking him for his dumb comments, but I'm missing how it relates to him having a scholarship or him upholding his side of that scholarship.
  9. Lewis used a single leg pretty effectively against Joseph. I think JB would be more effective.
  10. If JB was still shooting primarily blast doubles that might be true. But JB has been wonderful with the single leg and seems to rely on it just as much as the double for the last cycle or so.
  11. I agree. Dual meets would have defeated covid and Title 9 and universities going broke.
  12. People love guys who score points. Few people have ever scored more than Taylor. Stieber scored a lot, but not like Taylor. Margin of victory is king in our sport, even ahead of winning percentage.
  13. A dozen football programs earn tremendous amounts of money. 100 football programs earn decent amounts but spend absurd amounts trying to keep up with the dozen. At those dozen schools so much money is earned it pays for all non-revenue sports at those schools. And revenue sharing for the conference mates of those dozen pays for non-revenue sports at lots of other schools. Football may get all, but without it, their would be nothing for half the D1 college athletes that play sports other than football and basketball. The entire system would crash without the money earned off of football. If wrestling wants more they simply have to figure out how to earn billions in TV money.
  14. You really think he could make 149 weekly (sometimes multiple times a week), but he can't make 143 a few times a year?
  15. Weight shouldn't limit his effectiveness. He just got done making 149 under folk rules for 4 years and I don't remember hearing about the weight ever being an issue. Who knows how good he'll be. At this point he bullied a smaller guy with little senior FS experience. It is interesting that outside of JO most of our 65 kg guys are on the small side.
