  1. Im basically assuming that anything outside of Moore, and Pritzlaff are 'hooey'. Theres at least 1 troll on this thread stirring the pot. With that being said, coaching moves are one of my favorite aspects of the sport to watch.
  2. I think it would have to be a jackpot deal. Total admin support, great pay for him and his staff, etc. With it being a Big Ten School I think he would at least consider it. He has younger kids, so now would be an ideal time for them to move if they're going to. It would seem he's next in line at tOSU, but who knows when Ryan will be done. He's not exactly 'old'. Plus, I would imagine that if J does well at UMD he would certainly still be a front runner for that job when it opens up.
  3. I will be a very sad Buckeye if Jaggers leaves. I would rather them snatch up Moore, lol. UMD will have a solid new fanbase, though.
  4. Right, it's everything together. Difference at MD is/was (I am assuming here) he didnt want to be part of a rebuild, or deal with the prospect of being part of a rebuild. I do wish that he wouldve waited and seen who landed at UMD. Especially if it ends up being Jaggers or Moore.
  5. Gotta think 3 things played huge factors in this, 1- Full ride 2- being "the guy" 3- Big Ten Just as well, having Delgado and IMar as coaches/training partners has to be very impactful. Im sure it 'felt' right to him, and all the other things he listed in his statement as well. Im excited to see how he does.
  6. Yeah, I posted then walked away from my desk and a few moments later I thought of Tommy. I blame the fact that Jaggers was the first college wrestler I really looked up to, and Tommy was before my time (as in before I really paid attention.)
  7. I agree to an extent. I dont think he'd really try to hold him back, I simply mean he'd try to sweeten the pot at Rutgers to see if he'd be willing to stay. If he's bent on leaving then sure, I bet Goodale would be happy for him to land a job, but I'm sure he'd like him to stay.
  8. Logan - 1,1,1,1 Taylor - 2,1,2,1 Jaggers - DNP, 7th(maybe 8th, idk). 1, 1 O-H...
  9. He raises some fair points. I will say though- things didnt work out for Suriano at PSU, but he's doing just fine at Rutgers. So to say that because Teasdale couldnt hack it at PSU means he wont make it anywhere else is maybe a bit of a stretch. Different situations, I know but still.
  10. Idk if he'd be the right guy to bring into a rebuild. Plus, I'd imagine he wants to see through Suriano's career. Just as well, I think with the year they just had Goodale would do anything within his power to keep him around, he has to be a huge pull for recruits.
  11. I dont believe he cares, or wants to be hired by those programs anyway. With that being said, if he has that kind of mindset why not report or name names? Idk. Tough spot for him, other coaches, journalists, Flo (If you dont throw them in as journalists I guess).
  12. Word is that he wants to leverage it into everything but his own salary. As in Scholarships, facility, staff $$ (coaches/staff under him that is) Dude should be sought after by any major program that needs a rebuild, he's great. Hope he stays at LHU.
  13. Your ability to admit it is a quality few people on this board have, lol.
  14. 1 - Semis/blood round. Nothing like it. It was awesome (in cleveland last year) 2- Idk if it was the loudest I'v ever heard, but the way the arena erupted when they called Kyle Snyder's name to run out for the finals last year was unexplainable. The wrestling world loves him, and being in Ohio helped obviously I'm sure. Close second when JDJ threw Guilibon to his back for the W at BIg Ten's in Columbus a few years ago. 3- Dew 4- Dip n Dots 5- Hall. Hope he gets another one next year though, sincerly. Just not against Zahid, although it would seem that will be the matchup. 6- Music is awesome IMO. Especially during the warmup time for the medal round. 7- Not in my experience, other than the obvious commercial break. I actually found it to be overstimulating at times. Theres always someone you want to watch out there no matter what round youre in. 8- N/A for my one experience. 9- Everyone I sat by last year for the finals were very friendly regardless of what shirts we were wearing. I was pretty close to a lot of finalists parents/fam, so that was cool. 10- Watching Snyder get his last NCAA Chip. The whole experience was awesome. Mike Mach getting his as well was very cool. Actually met him in Raleigh a few months later and he is an incredibly genuine dude. Noticed I was wearing a USA wrestling shirt and talked to me and my Finance for like 20 min in their training facility lol. NCAAs is the best sporting event I have ever been to. By far.
  15. I like the variety, but I do agree that some teams completely ignoring their colors in favor of having 'cool' uniforms does kind of bug me. Not that difficult to throw some red/yellow on to a black singlet. With that being said... the singlet that Mekhi Lewis wore in the quarters was sick.
  16. Do I think it was a takedown? No. So, Joey should’ve won outright imo. With that being said I’m glad that it(the call) sent it into OT and they had a chance to settle it on it mat. It always stings when you watch the wrestler who initiated offense in OT take the loss, but Joey only used one attack the whole time(albeit he almost scored every time) and against an alien like Yianni, can you expect to continuously score off one shot? Idk, my heart aches for Joey. As a fan It’s been so awesome to have him compete for the bucks. Even in finishing 2nd he represented tOSU in a great way. Congrats to Yianni in any case! I’m a fan if he’s not wrestling a buckeye or a member of the Wolfpack!
  17. White Mueller Fix McKenna Ashnault Nolf Lewis Valencia Foster Nickal
  18. Bresser just dancin' on that 8th place stand. Im really impressed with Foley, and MSU- they had at least 1 other in the blood round, right? Thats awesome.
  19. 125 - Mueller. Piccinnini 133- Pletcher. Micic 141- Yianni. McKenna 149- Ashnault. Jordan 157- Nolf. Berger 165- Wick. Joseph. 174- Hall. Valencia 184- Martin. Foster 197- Nickal. Moore 285- White. Steveson.
  20. He's awesome. Picked him for my fantasy team for NCAAs haha. Despite being the TF leader last year and this year currently he's definitely slept on.
  21. I like floarena when an event is live, or when Im looking through the bracket and want to watch matches - but I definitely prefer the NCAA pdf. Wish they more regularly updated.
  22. I definitely think he's the favorite on paper and in general perception. Similarly to how Eierman's 2nd round match shouldn't fool anyone though Shoop's first round match was not very telling. Eierman should win, but Shoop is very dangerous. Its honestly one of the qtrs I'm looking forward to the most.
  23. 125 - Rivera, Mueller (this match could get wild), Lee, Piccinnini (Major upset potential here.) 133- Fix, Phillippi (Picking with my brain here, not my heart.), Suriano (Not sure what the weigh in/out schedule is but this could get ugly.) Micic (He looked fine yesterday, but obviously 7min with most is not the same as 7min with DeSanto) I feel like 133 is pretty clearly the most compelling weight this year. In the consos you've got Tucker v RBY (Ill take RBY). Terao v Gomez (Give me Gomez) and Bridges v Gonser (I'll take Gonser). Tariq Wilson is also looming in the wrestle backs. Looking like he'll have Erneste to AA if he makes it to the Blood Round, which is obviously very doable. 141- Yianni (against anyone but Yianni or Joey I'd probably pick Demas for the upset.) Eierman (I think this can go either way. I really like the loser of the qtr to make the podium either way.) Lee. McKenna. 149- Ashnault. Kolodzik (Interesting match up. Loser should still make the podium.) Finesilver (great quarterfinal. Selfeshly I want Oconner to win, because I think Micah dominates him. Finesilver could present some issues for Mic). Jordan. 157- Nolf. Hidlay (This will be tighter than ever, but I do think its a "match up thing". Loser makes the Podium with relative ease I think.) Deakin. (Young is dangerous here) Berger. 165- Marinelli (Man on a mission). Marsteller (I think Chance goes up by a takedown or two. Wiscy takes top, LHU takes neutral. It'll be close but I think the 1st period decides this one. Very very important match, as the loser will have an extremely difficult blood round match.) Steiert (call it a hunch) Joseph. 174- Hall. Amine. Valencia. Lewis 184- Martin. Bonaccorsi. Foster. Ness This weight started to crumble last night with Ness taking out PSU's resident mallard. I think the quarters will make it explode. 197- Nickal. Brucki. Weigel. Moore. 285- White. Stoll (Yep). Steveson (Dhesi will be game but I dont think Gable is playing those anymore.) Cassar (Im a big fan of Thor, and think he will AA. Cassar is in a separate tier though. He's my second favorite Nittany Lion after Nolf.) Who ya got!?
