  1. It's not punishing anyone! By using the college weight classifications and rules everyone is on the same (playing field) mat. The lightest weight in college is 125/lb so the 113/lb or 120/lb would just bump up to 125/lb if they wanted to compete. If someone is extended an invitation and for whatever reason they don't wish to compete that is their personal choice.
  2. The other night while having a few adult beverages a friend suggested that the Dapper Dan (Pittsburgh Press Classic) use the college weight classifications and rules which I thought would be a great idea. That would eliminate any thoughts of having 113/lb or even 120/lb due to the lowest weight classification becoming 125/lb. No reason at all not to have 285/lb other than someone has a hidden agenda.
  3. Everyone is silent as to why a few of the top kids are not wrestling in the National Preps.
  4. Why are the Mastrogiovanni brothers not wrestling at the National Preps for Blair
  5. Did Brock Lesnar fail a drug/steroid test while in college? If not this he said/she said is nothing more than rumors that really as no substance.
  6. Not a smart move to navigate this type of instance without GREAT legal representation.
  7. Is it possible to not be in a regimented strength training program that includes lifting heavy weight and still win an NCAA D1 National Championship? Yes, anything is possible but the real question is why would anyone want to risk winning a national championship?
  8. Yes, The University of Tennessee was the last SEC program to drop wrestling and they did so after the 1986 season. While The University of Tennessee only had one national champion they did have multiple All-Americans.
  9. Some on this thread want to claim that BL was taking illegal steroids/juicing but did he ever test positive for anything while in college?
  10. YD is a much better athlete than ZR. At the international level all of those guys appear to be great athletes not just wrestlers.
  11. I personally don't know if there is any validity to this but the rumor has been circulating that the Sothern Scuffle may move from Chattanooga, TN to Nashville, TN. The dates would remain the same but the travel would be better for most teams that fly to the event.
  12. If California does this you will find that other states do the same thing and the NCAA will have no choice to comply or a new organization will be formed for college athletics.
  13. Unless it's due to mandatory military service why would the NCAA allow anyone a 6th year of eligibility? This is no knock on Seth but I find it strange that the NCAA does this for the Olympic sports but you rarely hear of this happening in football, basketball or baseball. Is the redshirt not supposed to be used for injuries & academics? It's unfortunate but if someone uses their redshirt and then becomes injured or has another injury that is just part of participating in college athletics.
