    Next OSU Coach

    I would be shocked if Popolizio left NC State before they get a chip. Only way I could see that happening is if he got the Okie State job - I dont see that happening. Not because he'd lose out on the job necessarily ( I think he'd be the top candidate) but I think NC State would go to come extreme lengths to keep him. My money is on Branch.

    Kharchla is gonna be 3 or 4 timer

    Was talking about Sasso. Correct I think they are more similar than you give credit for, but I agree on the last bit at least. Again, he's legit. Hope he does well in any case.

    Obviously its a long ways out but I'd like to see him at Wisc. Working with Bono, Reader, Askren, and maybe Seth Gross by that time? *Whew*

    Kharchla is gonna be 3 or 4 timer

    I think its funny, and Im a buckeye fan obviously lol. I dont agree, but I also dont have a good/rational explanation of tOSU's troubles on bottom. Sasso will be a pretty good indication of if it's really a problem, or if it was just a long string of bad luck/coincidence(?) Dude has the capacity to be another Jaggers.

    I'm certainly not "in the know" or anything. I coach in Central Ohio and I havent heard anything as far as where he's leaning. Certainly hope he ends up a buck, but he's going to be tremendous wherever he lands. If not tOSU, I hope he ends up at NC State.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    I gotcha - you raise plenty of good/fair points. I dont think youre knocking Zahid or anyone. Some of it goes into matter of opinion I suppose - because the seeding committee has stated that the all-star doesnt play into seeding, but like you're saying - why else would Zahid have been seeded ahead of Hall at NCAAs? One could argue that they just believed Zahid deserved the 1 seed more, and another could argue the way you have. I do understand what you're saying in any case. I hope it doesnt stop teams from sending their guys to the All-Star.

    The B-Ball coach at Winston's HS needs a pat on the back for not poaching him away to the court. Jeez, tall drink of water.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    Youre right, It can/does/should count towards rankings. It shouldnt/doesnt count towards seeding. Rankings dont matter so much to these guys, at least I hope not. Certainly not someone of Hall's caliber. Or anyone on PSU's squad for that matter. I hope they keep sending guys. Rankings dont mean squat.

    Suriano interview s

    No worries man, apologies accepted. You're welcome.

    Suriano interview s

    Refer to my above post, which I'm sure you saw, and re read my original post, which I know you've already done lol. Never said he posted videos, I literally said "he put his story out there" which he did. Don't twist what I said around to fit what you want it to say.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    All star matches arent considered when it comes to seeding/ranking. On the more concrete side of things, I get what youre saying I suppose. It definitely benefits a lot of people to wrestle the top guys as many times as possible to try and figure them out.

    Suriano interview s

    Nope, he typed out an explanation and posted it to his social media page. Suriano also did one singular interview (in regard to his infection, or whatever) with flo that was chopped in to multiple segments - at least that's how I understand they're doing these "wall talks".

    Suriano interview s

    Dude is a stud. If you dont like him, whatever. Im not a huge fan of the showy attitude, or really of him in general. If you see this as him making excuses that's on you, because thats certainly not how I hear/see it. Spencer lee, also an absolute freak, did the same thing months after he lost to DeSanto in the state finals. Simply put the story out there. Didnt frame it as an excuse. Everyone knew Nolf was injured - and he still smoked everyone. A- No need for him to tell a story everyone already knew. B- He won. Not sure how word got out on Yianni being injured at NCAAs, but no doubt it would have come out in any case. Like Nolf though, he won.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    Right, gotcha. Funny we were talking about him yesterday, and later in the night he was announced as one of the 133lb contestants, ha. I'd really like to see him either take on Suriano, or Wilson.

    RTC discussion on Flo

    I just cant imagine how "getting rid" of RTCs as they stand now would even the playing field. I'd never thought of it this way before but what the flo squad said about it likely even widening the gap is very plausible. Teams that cant have RTCs like the "power" programs are finding ways to replicate it to a degree. The NJRTC was mentioned before, as well as whatever it is that Penn/Drexel have going on. Lock Haven is another great example, they certainly dont have the resources that schools like PSU, and TOSU have. I believe they have to fund raise for most if not all of their scholarship money. Theyve found a way to have some semblance of an RTC in the Mat Town USA club or whatever its called. Im not sure if they have any senior level athletes currently, but if it's a way for their guys to train year round it no doubt has benefited their program. When small programs improve like that and can produce AA's and NCAA finalists its good for the sport.
