    "I don't know what the Gavin situation is...."

    From my admittedly limited interaction I've had with the kid, he didn't seem like the brightest star in the galaxy and he had a little chip on his shoulder. Nothing too bad but I could definitely see it being an odd dynamic with the rest of the team who all seem to have similar, more relaxed/laid back personalities. This was a few years back now but he seemed like a good kid otherwise.

    better career....

    What are you referring to? I'm curious.
  3. Fire your writer. You need new material.

    Penn State vs Kent State Thread

    I think an AA is all but a given for how talented he is but I would not be surprised if he dropped a match or 2 to guys like Lujan, McFadden, or Kutler. I think he's at the top of the 2nd tier at 174.
  5. I don't find this particularly surprising. Singletary had a year in college under his belt. The hype on Parris is a bit confusing to me. He's obviously a horse but he's really raw. Singletary is the exact opposite. He's all technique with little horsepower. I'll take the technician over the athlete every time.

    Penn State vs Kent State Thread

    Eh, that's a bit of a stretch at this point to compare true freshman Hall to junior Hall. And let's not act like BoJo is a bad loss.

    Another Wrestler in Congress

    Wasn't one of the dems who ran for president last cycle a wrestler?

    Is Iowa PA-west (or midwest)?

    My understanding was the Cael did not really press for Sasso as he wasn't Cael's kind of kid. And he had Hoffman in the bag but once Beard came decommited from NW and committed to Penn State, Hoffman left. So Spencer and Pletcher are really the only ones.

    Does Penn State need a new lightweight coach?

    If RBY, Teasdale, and Teske don't work out, then that would be quite telling. They have not really gotten the amount of blue-chippers in those weights relative to their middle weights. Nico, Guilibon, and Suriano are really the only ones I can think of aside from the ones coming in. Think of that relative to Zain, the Altons, Nolf, Cenzo, Nickal. MorMac, etc.

    Coon takes Silver

    Yazdani had a Bronze at Worlds and an Oly Gold to his name while Taylor couldn't even make the National team prior to their meeting.

    Coon takes Silver

    Speculation. Taylor couldn't beat Yazdani. Burroughs couldn't beat Tsargush. Gardner couldn't beat Karelin. Until they did.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    I'm still sad we didn't get to see Nolf vs. Zain last season.

    Coon takes Silver

    Maybe. Having Riza, the Cuban, and the Russian on the opposite side was certainly a plus. But, we have no data points to indicate how Coon would do against them so that remains to be seen.

    4 falls actually :)

    Coon takes Silver

    Just watched all of Coon's matches. His run was no fluke. He uses his build to the best of his advantage. His body lock and lateral drop are going to be there a lot due to his length and long arms. Once he locks that up, his leverage and gorilla strength let him horse guys around. He's going to be able to do that to a lot of guys and get falls. Now, I just hope he adds to his arsenal and closes up some of his holes. For his 1st senior level appearance, you can't give him grade him less than an A. Really happy for him .
