    Good thing that Yianni and Oliver don't wrestle for the same club. Oh, wait...

    Cassar granted 2 more years!

    Are you saying that Penn State has an infinite amount of money? So giving money to Cassar doesn't actually reduce the amount of money available to some other students? Or indeed, that Cassar's presence at the school doesn't take away the space available for some other student?

    2020 Ncaa Wrestling Suite Tickets

    Just curious: does anyone know where the mat(s) will be in relation to this location? I'd guess the mats will be near one end zone, which means this suite might be ~75yds away.

    You want to know how good Eierman is? He's the only guy to beat Yianni in college.

    What college produces the best freestylers?

    Right. But what Nickal and Nolf *might* do in the future does count. Got it, thanks.

    What college produces the best freestylers?

    So, Yianni and Nahshon have achieved nothing on the world stage, but Nickal and Nolf should be mentioned...because they too have achieved nothing on the world stage but they might in the future? Yikes. By the way, Yianni has two world gold medals on the world stage (albeit at Cadet), and Garrett has made the US world team. Get back to us when Nolf and Nickal have even come that close to the "world stage."

    Garcia will be a Business Planner for the Director of Sales/Marketing. That apostrophe meant something. Honis started at 197 his soph and senior years; he wrestled 285 his junior year (thanks, Darnstadt!). https://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/43656/honis-benjamin/profile

    Do I recall that Gross lost up a weight to Meredith, who lost twice to Yianni (once on a torn ACL)?

    Cut the crap. You made a claim that was false. Nobody said that everyone at Cornell is a genius. What contribution was that?

    Pointing out a logical fallacy is a far greater contribution than is deploying the logical fallacy.

    I have a degree from Cornell, and some of Dake's ideas make me shake my head. Even Rob Koll acknowledged that he doesn't buy some of Dake's methodology.

    Is Yianni the Second Best Ever?

    If I understand you correctly, Yianni and Dake both were less dominant over weaker opponents than were Zain and Taylor over stronger opponents. Yet Yianni just beat Zain (and Molinari), and Dake was 3-0 vs Taylor (not counting fantasy losses, of course). What kind of monumental failure on the part of Zain and Taylor does that require? How do you compare two "narrow" wins in NCAA finals to actual losses in the NCAAs by Zain and Taylor? This year, Cornell wrestled the #2, 6, 11, 13, 13, 15, 18 and 19 finishers in the NCAA team race. PSU wrestled the #2, 5, 9, 12, 13. Everyone else outside the top 20. You find that to be a MUCH MUCH weaker schedule than PSU?

    Is Yianni the Second Best Ever?

    Another fantasy win for Taylor over Dake.
  25. Someone on Game of Thrones said something like "everything before the 'but' is bull****." Yianni himself said that he had never done that funk non-roll before, so Oliver likely had not seen that. Nobody can defend Yianni's sitting the corner defense. Yianni is a big stage performer, so what you get in practice is not what you get in the big match. McKenna still lost.
