  1. I'd put Simons at #1because he would have won 3 at PSU. Or the Little SIsters of the Poor. Or wherever. No such thing as the "bad fit" excuse for this guy.
  2. The CDC recommends this position - as a matter of fact they recommend hiding both arms.
  3. May as well cancel, without fans to yell "stalling" the refs won't know what to do anyway.
  4. Wrong. They were outcomes that were a direct result of the choices the wrestlers made. You don't understand that and you have trouble with English. Regurgitating examples of your faulty logic would serve no useful purpose. I'm climbing out of your gutter and won't descend again bud. Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  5. No. You listed some outcomes and made a giant unsupported leap to character assassination. Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  6. You're the one making allegations and assailing Cael's character, you're the one who should offer proof. Otherwise don't be surprised if fair-minded people shoot holes through your speculations. Sorry you're confused about that concept. Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  7. "PSU treated him and Long like they were expendable" - A 20/20 hindsight based solely on bad outcomes. You probably have no clue as to inadequacies regarding professional counseling, academic tutoring, mentoring, parental consultations offered and received in those cases and unless you do any "expendable" allegation is baseless and wrongheaded. Also, people offering kids chances when there is no surety of success is a good thing .... Coaches don't offer chances because kids are expendable, they offer chances so a kid can save himself. Long didn't, it's on him not the people who tried to help him. As far as Teasdale turning it around, we shall see. But if he crashes and burns, I won't blame TnT or Iowa.
  8. Possibly, but so far Cael seems to handle his kids ok based on evidence I've seen (no first hand or extensive knowledge though). https://gopsusports.com/news/2019/4/29/five-lion-wrestling-all-americans-earn-first-team-national-all-academic-laurels.aspx http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/20816 He's had failures also, but I don't see any egregious trends. Pretty typical compared to other programs and coaches as far as I can tell. Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  9. Ya'know when Bubba Jenkins left PSU it turned out to be a win-win. Bubba got the fit he needed to prosper and win a championship, Cael maintained the team discipline and focus that helpef his wrestlers to win multiple team and individual championships. Hopefully it works out well for Teasdale too, but he has a more difficult path to travel than Bubba in terms of how far he has to go to make it a win for himself. Given Cael's results, questioning his judgement and approach is more wishful than substantive thinking .... But that's what forums are for! Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  10. The facilities arms race in college sports has actually touched wrestling in the form of RTCs .... Amazing. College football (and now wrestling and other sports) Taj Mahals are being built on college campuses everywhere (at least the have's). It's only a matter of time until curling and break dancing RTCs become a thing. Maybe gaming RTCs will come first. Wrestling RTCs are a small pimple on the bloated ravaged face of big-money-corrupted college sports (no chance of a Pulitzer for me). Sooner or later something's gotta give.
  11. Ok. I got Dake. Does anyone take Taylor? Bueller? Bueller? Unless Bueller shows up the hypothetical hypothetical unbeaten streak is broken. Bueller? Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  12. "..... Kind of like all those who think Taylor is better than Dake, never having beaten him in real life." A poll to confirm that this is actually a real phenomenon ..... Is there anyone on Earth (well, in this forum at least) who is willing to post that (real) Taylor is better? Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  13. Wasn't he in the Glee club? Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  14. Is this is a T.S.Eliot thread? "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." Or is that what Yianni said to Zain before they started rolling? Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
  15. The optimal freestyle judge panel consists of 1) a mind reader to devine intent, 2) a physicist to differentiate continuous action and rest and 3) a poster from this forum to explain forevermore that the other two are wrong. Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk
