    Duck of the month club

    Yeah, sucks that they sent out a backup but what do you expect the guy to do? It's a dual, not a tournament. His job was to not get pinned.

    Lehigh at Iowa

    You used to but the NCAA has gotten way more lenient about it the last few years.

    Kemerer didn't wrestle a single time this season and will almost certainly get a year to make up for this one. At this point I wouldn't consider him to be a missing starter any more than Brands or Cassioppi. He's a redshirt.

    Flo's silence on the Ohio State accusations & Jim Jordan story

    I clearly made a mistake by assuming you were posting in good faith. My mistake.

    Flo's silence on the Ohio State accusations & Jim Jordan story

    To your first thing that you are claiming is a lie. Here's two quotes from Jim Jordan from when this first broke. I'll link to the full article in case you'd like to read it. To your second point. I'm unaware of him being named as a defendant in any court cases surrounding these accusations. Since you are claiming that he is, can you point it out?

    Such as? The "100 plus" is absolutely fact as is the fact that people are testifying in court about it. Jordan's initial response when he heard about it was to deny any knowledge of the abuse and claim that it was a political hit job (even though wrestlers make up just a fraction of the abused). That also is a fact. So please tell me what the lies were in my post.

    That isn't what caused his name to blow up with regards to the abuse though. What caused it to blow up was that he claimed he had absolutely no idea that anything at all was going on and called the wrestlers liars. Which is looking increasingly bad as now more than 100 people have come forward and people are testifying in court about it. If he'd just said that he didn't realize the extent of what was going on, or that at the time he didn't understand the abuse, or really anything at all other than an outright denial then his name wouldn't be front and center. Nobody is naming him as a defendant in the case or anything like that.

    Modern Era of Wrestling

    I'm with you on that. I remember having to go to the library and check out books on wrestling techniques during the summers in high school and then doing my best to work out the grainy black and white picture sequences. Now kids can watch a virtually unlimited amount of live matches and technique breakdowns from all around the world whenever they want. The scope of that change can't be discounted. I agree with the people who think that the modern era started with Gable but I think that the Gable area came to a close about a decade ago as brute strength and conditioning stopped being enough to even make it to a state tournament in high school if you didn't combine it with year-round professionally coached technique work starting at a young age.

    Stalling solution?

    I don't like it but I will say it is a better idea than 99% of the ones people toss out to solve stalling. Personally I think the only solution that is needed is for refs to stop being afraid of enforcing the rules that already exist.

    Ohio State scandal

    The "line" is whether or not you are a mandatory reporter and is clearly spelled out in law and/or employment contracts. In Meyer's case, it looks like his contract with the university required him to report any "Intimate abuse" he knew about from someone on his staff.

    Push-back against the 3pt TD?

    It's a wrestling match, not a takedown contest. Winning the takedown battle is just one component of winning the match. Sometimes a football team that scored more touchdowns loses because they gave up too many field goals. The solution isn't to make touchdowns worth 9 points.

    Time to ditch the NCAA

    I do agree that the future of wrestling as a growth sport is D-III. But I think D-I is mostly here to stay. Some years we'll gain a team or two, some years we'll lose a team or two. Some years, like this one, there will be some of both. But as a whole the number of teams is fairly stable and has been for a while.

    Time to ditch the NCAA

    The NCAA doesn't care what the makeup of conferences is. The Fresno State isn't in the Big 12 because the NCAA made them. They are in the Big 12 because the Pac-12 wouldn't take them but the Big 12 would.

    SDSU Head Coach

    I agree with you completely about non-Big Ten teams, that is extremely important for the health of the sport. But I don't think this automatically is bad. The administration at SDSU is supportive of wrestling and Bono had it on the rise. And he left on a peak year. If they make a good hire there's no reason they can't keep the ball rolling. And with Bono laying a solid foundation they should be able to attract quality applicants.
