    he has also beaten Pohlmeyer
  2. Does anyone else think that Jimmy's logic and posts resemble those of the late, "great" 21guns?
  3. When did trying to recruit a committed, unsigned wrestler become illegal? Edit: just saw the article. I guess the question is did he get released from his NLI prior to potential contact from others, or after?
  4. this is the case with mat size, you can buy the leftovers from Resilite on their site. Art. 1. Mat Specifications. Mats shall have a competition circle between 32 and 42 feet in diameter. There shall be a matted area with a minimum width of five feet that extends entirely around the competition circle. Section 3. Mat Setup Art. 1. Mat Setup. No obstruction such as tables, bleachers, competitor seating or walls shall be placed closer than 5 feet from the edge of the competition circle. It is recommended, whenever possible, that all obstructions be placed not closer than 8 feet from the edge of the competition circle. When two mats are side-by-side, there shall be at least 5 feet of matted area between the two competition circles. The reason for the 42' mats seems to be limitations of host venues. not very many have the space to fit much larger mats, or extend the safe zone. The mats in PPG barely had room to walk behind the tables during Sessions one and two.
  5. Tim Johnson is, and has always been, one of the top announcers when it comes to lack of knowledge about the sport. Here is the rule; Art. 7. Grasping Clothing or Equipment. Grasping of clothing, the mat, equipment or ear protection by a competitor is a technical violation. Edit-sorry, should have read all the way through, someone had already posted.
  6. no fighting desired or looked for! But here are quotes "seems like the injuries have sapped the little neutral game he had in the past and left him as a guy who has one path to victory" and " You don't want Weigel to be able to stall away a period at that point". If I took it incorrectly, how did you mean it?
  7. You obviously didn't watch him much. Weigel had 6 or 7 takedowns, this tournament, all off his own shots. And he stalled that period to the tune of four back points, and a stalling warning on Miklus. Is he Bo on his feet -definitely not, but it isn't a given you won't be taken down. And he has proven before this year that if you take a sloppy shot it will cost you.
  8. Thanks to Wxxxxx, for the first donation! We appreciate your help!
  9. Tis the season to be thankful-and to help others. Wrestling for Life is an organization dedicated to providing shoes for under served JH/Middle School teams where kids are not able to afford them. Just think, some kid somewhere can have a new pair of shoes to be proud of-for only $25 per pair, including shipping. I found 10 pairs of quality shoes on clearance today. Don't make them cut off my purchasing privileges-I can't resist these bargains! If you dont know, this is the address http://www.wrestlingforlife.org/index.php/donate.
  10. Jordan Oliver @that_dude_JO 67 it is 1:18pm · 6 Sep 2018 · Wonder if they get a 2kg allowance?
  11. Some of you may have heard of WFL. It is an organization dedicated to providing wrestling shoes to middle schools throughout the country, trying to make sure that anyone who wants to begin wrestling can be properly equipped. Having shoes allows the schools to stretch funding, and those kids who otherwise couldn't afford shoes to have the opportunity to wrestle. Of course, shoes cost money, so we are looking for donations to support the cause. One way to make giving fun is to make it a bit of a contest, which allows you to base a donation on the success of our USA wrestlers. So here goes; Openly pledge (or silently) to donate to Wrestling for Life for medals earned by USA wrestlers in the Junior World Championships, beginning September 17th. Remember, each $30 buys a new pair of shoes that will be donated to middle schools across the country. Have some fun, give yourself a reason to keep up with the wrestling, and help a great cause! Then, if you are feeling lucky, post your receipt on this thread, and one lucky winner will get something good. Don’t know what yet, though-but I am sure it will be wrestling related Here is my pledge; $10 for a USA Gold Medal, $7 for a USA Silver Medal, $4 for a USA Bronze medal for all 3 styles. A perfect tourney by the US would let Jim buy 30 pairs of shoes with my money! In the immortal words of someone else, MATCH ME! Pledges can be any amount, and I guarantee that a coach gives a kid that has been wrestling in tattered hand me downs the smile on his face is worth the effort! If you just want to donate to a great cause (WFL is a 501©3 organization, so your donation is deductible, the link is below. http://www.wrestlingforlife.org/index.php/donate

  13. I don't think numerous entries listed above wrestled in the 2000's. Might make a difference.
  14. Greco does it with Northern Michigan-not a college team, just an RTC-type arrangement.
  15. please don't give them any bad ideas....
  16. Probably because he did beat him in their last real matchups?
  17. I am sure some would say thanks for the memories!
  18. this article lies a little. As an employee who has a senior that is looking at going to OSU, just the tuition component is waived. Fees are as much as tuition, if not more, and those are not waived.
  19. A copy of a post from our board by the director of Wrestling for Life-this was from the senior world championships! Every donation helps. "A huge thank you goes out to you Cowboy fans who accepted CowboyUp's challenge and donated to Wrestling for Life. Monday I ordered 21 pairs of shoes to meet the needs of a middle school in California whose wrestling team is 80% "free lunch" and the Augusta Beat the Streets chapter. Make no mistake - you helped make this happen. I can't adequately express my gratitude. Just picture a kid walking out on the mat in a new pair of shoes who before had to borrow an old, odd pair - or go without. I hope I speak for those kids and their parents when I say, once more, "thank you".

  21. Gentlemen, and other wrestling fans; With Jim at Wrestling for Life’s blessing, we are continuing the spirit of friendly competition while supporting the growth of our sport, thought maybe we could get an across the boards bragging rights challenge for the NCAA tournament going. I know it is 5 months away, but it is never too early to start thinking about Wrestling for Life and growing the sport we all love. Plus, you can start saving money to donate! Rules are simple; 1. Openly pledge any amount per team point scored by your team at the NCAA tournament to be donated to Wrestling For Life. MAKE SURE TO DESIGNATE YOUR TEAM. Example: CowboyUp61 pledges $1 per point for OKLA STATE. If OSU scores 150 team points, my donation would be $150.00. Any amount is welcome, and appreciated. If you don’t want to keep track, you can just donate a flat amount, and it counts for your board! Any receipt posted(to WFL J) dated after the original post is made, through April 2nd counts! 2. ACTUALLY FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR PLEDGE, and post your receipt by April 2. (Nobody likes someone who skips out on a charity donation!) 3. The winning board and team will be decided by the amount of receipts to WFL posted by April 2. 4. The winning board gets an electronic trophy they can pin to the top of the board. Not to mention bragging rights for the next year. 5. One lucky soul who contributed to the winning board will receive a gift pack of clothing and memorabilia from the University they support worth approximately $150.00. 6. All who donate get the knowledge their money went to provide shoes to those that otherwise may not have them, tickets to events for kids who otherwise may never be able to attend, and that these young kids may stick with wrestling due to your support!
