    BobbyGribbs reacted to flyingcement in Cody Chittum   
    It would be pretty crazy to think about them in 2024 if that were to happen.  Imagine this lineup:
    125: Vinny Kilkeary
    133: Nic Bouzakis / Andre Gonzalez
    141: Jesse Mendez / Dylan D'Emilio
    149: Cody Chittum
    157: Sammy Sasso
    165: Paddy Gallagher
    174: Carson Kharchla / Rocco Welsh
    184: Luke Geog
    197: Gavin Hoffman
    285: Nick Feldman

    BobbyGribbs reacted to Hufarted in Death to riding time   
    I don't think eliminating riding time would reduce top stalling that much unless it's a really tight match. There was a lot of riding with few attempts to turn at this years NCAAs which I think could be stopped by putting the guys back on their feet in neutral (no escape point awarded) if the top guy doesn't get a turn within a certain amount of time. I think a minute would be just about right, if a guy doesn't get the turn within a minute they go to neutral. However I think the top guy should receive stall warnings if he isn't actively trying to turn.

    Would eliminating riding time reduce top stalling in a noticeable way?
    How many times does bottom wrestler need to get to their feet to constitute top stalling? (In your opinion)

    BobbyGribbs reacted to Elevator in Are "old" wrestlers breaking down?   
    Long time ago (> 20 years), wrestlers took more time off from the daily grind in the off-season.  They may have run/lifted to maintain fitness and done some light sparring, but from what I observed did not train and compete as much as many seem to do today.   What works for some may not work as well for others.

    Ryan said Paddy was keeping his RS until second half at least. FWIW.  Jordan may start the season, but I believe Romero gets the spot. Malik is one of my favorite Buckeyes.
    Looking forward to seeing all the guys. Go Bucks!

    BobbyGribbs reacted to MSU158 in Nick Suriano in the transfer portal   
    But it IS political just as much, if not more, as it is viral.  Just like the flu, it is NOT going away.  It is NOT going to be "defeated".  A considerable percentage of people are NOT going to get vaccinated and another percentage are NOT going to keep getting the shot annually.  There just is NO WAY I see, that changes these people's minds and trying to force people to do so would create an EPIC ****storm.  
    Now, to be clear, I have had Covid.  It was NOT friendly to me.  I have been fully vaccinated(Moderna 1 and 2).  I had VERY unfriendly reactions to both shots as well.  Still, I did it and will continue as long as no clear data pops up showing serious, negative side effects.  However, I still believe each person has the fundamental right to refuse putting something into their body and I don't see how you can force anyone to do so.  As long as that is the case, the virus WILL be politicized EVERY SINGLE TIME numbers spike!

    In an earlier interview she talked about her growing hesitancy and over-thinking the possible things that could go wrong. She said when she was young she just went for it. So in a way she lost her confidence and nerve. Can you blame her? Look what she does in the air! She deserves to be cautious now - she has grown up.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to TheOhioState in Best case scenario for next ohio state coach   
    After all his recent years of success, it's interesting that people are crying "off with his head!" after one 9th place finish.

    It's Ryan himself who lifted the expectations of the Ohio State wrestling program.  No one expected a d thing regarding team placement before Tom arrived.  

    In their dry spell, Iowa went from 2010 to 2020 (almost assuredly) before they won another National Title. 

    Ten years.  That being said, it was absolutely the right idea to hold on to Tom Brands and company.  They've come back, and they're going to be fighting for the title again in 2021-2.

    Ryan is smart, and he is driven.  He knows all about the mat wrestling problems, and he'll figure them out.  There will be changes, for sure, but he'll get things done.

    We can drag this thread out in two years to add to it, but look for Ohio State to be on the podium again in the near future.  If not this coming year, then the next one.

    Backtracking from this year, Ryan's Buckeyes have finished 9, Covid, 2, 2, 2, 3 and 1.  Three Big Ten Championships in that span, too.

    One disappointing year.  

    Would be stupid to even suggest getting rid of Tom Ryan, which explains the original post.

    I think the rest of the big 10 should thank ohio state for the loads of money each school makes from Ohio State football.  Its not like Penn St wrestling is providing the Big 10 with much money.
