    I think it's complicated and we all need to sit tight and wait until we learn a lot more.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to stp in Alleged Ohio State Disabato video   
    You can either like or dislike the Jordan's, but they've always stood for what they valued.    The DiSabato's are a large family.   You have good sides, and a questionable side.
    The dislike and jealousy of the Jordan's, goes back before Mike D.  Possibly failed attempts at tOSU coaching positions, failed businesses and overall not as much success on the mat could all be answers to the question.....?  
    Why haven't we heard from the other A.D boys who wrestled at tOSU back then?    Only the one with all the legal trouble...?

    Mike D is a well known douche bag, plus his side of the D family has a history of jealousy towards the Jordan's.

    Zahid looks bigger. The only part of Hall that's bigger is his enormous cranium.

    I am leaning towards Hall. Watching him pound his chest after he won his first match at this years big ten...really you were supposed to win that one. Confidence is good, arrogance is stupid

    I don't dislike Retherford, but I must admit I'd crack a smile if he lost. Same goes for basically every PSU wrestler actually...

    This is the happiest sports weekend of the year and while it's easy to get wrapped up in your team you must have some guys you like on other teams.  Who will you secretly be rooting for?
    For me it's:
    1. DeSanto (I feel like he's going to come up a lot here)
    2. Thomas Haines
    3. Marsteller
    4. Dean Heil (just kidding!)

    It sounded like a bunch of people from this board made the trip out to the B1G tourney. How pissed must they be with all these MFFs? Kinda cheapens the conference tournament down to "duals don't matter" level.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to treep2000 in Te'shan Campbell   
    Campbell has been a huge disappointment for the Buckeye faithful.  I am struggling to find any semblance of wrestling technique.  All I see is massive strength and balance (an athletic freak), but very little actual wrestling.  
    Even if he gets an at-large bid, it will do nothing for tOSU come NCAA's, since he'll go 0-2 once again.  
    I wonder how the room does against him, and if Burcher wouldn't have been a better choice.  At least we saw "fight" and "heart" with him.

    Tournaments are not good for the sport. Days are too long.
    Half the bracket loses first round. Half of those losers lose first round of consi. You have 1/4 of every bracket going 0-2 but still having to sit in the gym all day.
    Tournaments, and even long multi-dual events, are not good for retention. They are focused on the elite wrestlers and numbers are lost as a result.

    I primarily follow college wrestling,but I try to go to at least 1-2 H.S.Tournaments every year.
    I also have a few friends who coach H.S in New Jersey
    1.The coaches I Know all agree with what someone posted earlier about too many weight classes.
    They all feel there should be 10-11,tops.
    2.A number of football coaches actively discourage their players from wrestling.
    That's hurting the numbers in the upper weights.
    3.The participation is youth wrestling is steady.
    But between camps,private coaches/schools and the length of their season,these kids are going year round.
    A lot of what would be "decent" wrestlers in high school seem to be getting burned out.
    One of our friend's sons started out loving the sport and was pretty good.
    His  parents thought he was going to be the next Gable.
    So they put him in a wrestling school and got a private coach.
    After a couple of years of that,he didn't want to go anywhere near a mat.

    I gotta agree with this. When I was a kid you used to wrestling like 17 duals and 2 tournaments. In a dual even if you lost, by not getting pinned you helped the team. You played a part in your team winning. The duals also lasted a little longer than an hour. In a tournamnet you sit around all day and only feel valued when you win/place in the tournament. 
    Football and basketball games take up a few hours at most. You dont have to sit around for 12+ hours weekend after weekend.
    Sometimes wrestling is it's own worst enemy.

    The emphasis is now on more tournaments and less on duals. I have spoken to many parents and they hate sitting all weekend long. The kids are tired of it also. Another thing is it is hard work, a grinding sport and many kids don’t want to put in the work to be a part of a sport they feel doesn’t “pay off”
