    Katie got a reaction from custom fitch in Neck Braces   
    In my day, I wrestled with a mask and braces for my neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.
    Sure, I looked like a robot. But I stayed injury free (except for my back)

    Katie reacted to dmm53 in 141 seeds at Big Tens   
    Here is Regularfan's reasoning about the seeds (from BWI forum).  
    141 lbs (projecting 9 qualifiers so will seed to 14 if that holds)

    1. Nick Lee (Penn State) (23-1, 7-1 Big 10 Starters) – Call this my bold prediction but Lee is the highest ranked in the coaches release of the top three and suffered his only loss in OT. I also think some coaches will punish Carr for missing the last dual and so Lee will get either #1 or #2 votes and Carr will get #1 or #3 votes (behind McKenna) to be the difference

    2. Mike Carr (Illinois) (11-2, 6-0 Big 10 Starters) – Undefeated I think he will split #1 and #3 votes

    3. Joey McKenna (Ohio State) (16-1, 5-1 Big 10 Starters) – higher than Carr in the coaches poll by two spots but he will split #2 and #3 votes from coaches and end up hitting Carr in semis (if my prediction holds)

    4. Tristan Moran (Wisconsin) (19-6, 5-2 Big 10 Starters) – Lost to McKenna, Carr, beat Lee and pinned McKee

    5. Mitch McKee (Minnesota) (15-3, 7-2 Big 10 Starters) – Beat everybody below (and a lot of them), McKee and Storr are very close but McKee has been slightly more dominant vs. common opponents

    6. Kanen Storr (Michigan) (20-4, 6-3 Big 10 Starters) – Storr could very easily be 5 and did have a higher coaches rank than both Moran and McKee but I just see him as #6

    7. Max Murin (Iowa) (12-5, 5-3 Big 10 Starters) – has the weird loss by fall against Luigs but has been everybody else below him

    8. Chad Red (Nebraska) (15-10, 1-5 Big 10 Starters) – wrestled a lot of the top guys, did beat Lipari who beat Limmex (who I am projecting to get a bid)

    9. Peter Lipari (Rutgers) (9-10, 2-6 Big 10 Starters) – interesting to me because I don’t have Lipari qualifying one of the 9 bids but he did beat Limmex in overtime

    10. Nate Limmex (Purdue) (16-12, 2-6 Big 10 Starters) – better overall ranking than Lipari and in the coaches rank (which Lipari was not) but he lost the head-to-head, seeded 10th even though I have him qualifying the ninth and final bid

    11. Kyle Luigs (Indiana) (13-14, 1-4 Big 10 Starters) – Pinned Murin but lost to Limmex, could also be 12

    12. Austin Eicher (Michigan State) (13-11, 1-4 Big 10 Starters) – beat McKenna for only conference win

    13. Danny Bertoni (Maryland) (13-12, 0-4 Big 10 Starters) – winning record overall was difference to me although he was a backup doing opens for some of the year

    14. Alec McKenna (Northwestern) (8-10, 0-7 Big 10 Starters) – was the man all year long for Northwestern, will coaches reward that with 13 seed over Bertoni?

    Pizza as we know it today began in Naples, Italy.
    However, before WWII, it wasn’t very commercialized there (or anywhere else in Italy) because it was considered to be a working-class dish.
    At the same time (before WWII) there were only a handful of pizzerias in the US. After WWII, however, American soldiers returning from the war brought back a taste for pizza. 
    Fueled by the buying power of WWII vets, pizza exploded in popularity in the US, which subsequently made it explode in popularity in Italy. 
    Today, as a purely subjective matter, I believe the best pizza is made in Italy.

    Haselrig is a unicorn:
    He won a PA high school title despite attending a high school that didn't have a wrestling team. He won three D1 titles despite competing for a D2 team. He made it to the Pro Bowl despite never playing football in college.

    If you had consulted Ephesians 6:12 first, you would have seen that what Penn State does on the mat is not wrestling.
    It’s just a bit of fun and fellowship before their daily devotionals, where the real work happens.

    It’s disgraceful what they’ve done to DeSanto over at Iowa by reportedly suspending him against Maryland.
    IMO he’s been nothing but hilarious this year.

    There's a lot wrong with NCAA wrestling. Almost like it's trying to make itself extinct.
    Meaningless regular seasons is one of the big problems.

    Katie got a reaction from manyak in Ducking: an enlightened perspective   
    Losing a wrestling match can be horribly traumatic. I’ve heard of wrestlers feeling triggered over losses years and even decades after the fact, long after anyone else could possibly care.
    Are we fans being selfish for wanting to see these student athletes risk future triggerings?
    Maybe it’s time we stand and salute those coaches who understand how devastating it can be to not be the best wrestler of all time. 
    Maybe it’s time to give coaches emotional forfeit bricks so they can protect their guys from emotional damage even after a match has started.
    I pity anyone who puts entertainment above potential emotional carnage.

    Just base NCAA seeds on finishes at certain tournaments. If an injury forces you out of a tournament, too bad. (The NCAA tournament itself does not account for untimely injuries.)
