  1. What Gable did was and is impressive. Gable revolutionized wrestling by teaching dominance and being in better shape than your opponent. Cael took what Gable did and added technique and unmatched offense. So to me you don’t have Cael to the level of dominance without Gable laying the groundwork… all this from the standpoint of a non PSU or Iowa fan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. When will we see said common sense?? Every year there are situations of ducking and MFFs that don’t probably penalize and carry the weight that they should what makes you think they’re going to deviate from the precedence the last few years? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. More wrestling is more than what we’re currently getting, where guys have 9 flippin matches going into the tournament… the limited season matches the ducking and whatnot are all a product of having nothing count during the regular season other than slightly affect seeds. I’m not suggesting changing anything about the current NCAA tournament. Do I think attendance would drop at the NCAA tournament if a separate dual team tournament was held like the national duals was in January? No not at all. In fact I think you’d add another event that would showcase the best of the best… I think in order for it to be taken seriously though it would have to have an official title to the winner as in a National Dual Champion recognized by the NCAA. I think having both the individual team title and the dual team title would be the best of both worlds. It’s probably a pipe dream but I just want to see more wresting and the current state while still solid at the tournament, has lost a lot of ground to what it used to be during the regular season.

  4. I’ve never read such passion and argument to NOT get to watch more wrestling… we all hate how the conference tournaments no longer matter much and there are MFF left and right. An event that makes the best of the best wrestle each other and you guys don’t want to see it? Baffling… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Could you give us the truth of the matter? I’m honestly asking for clarification. How many coaches and which ones were asked and who was against it/for it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Except there are people that want a dual championship to decide the team championship…by the length of this thread and the debate around it, not even close to a dead issue. The only downside I see to having a dual title instead of the current way is less incentive for domination and much more likely to just win matches at the individual tournament. The extra matches, added weigh ins and risk of injury argument are garbage. When did wrestling become such an avoidance to seek out good competition throughout the year?? It’s sickening to watch all the ducking and all the MFFs because the regular season counts for very little anymore other than towards a seed. National duals were a big deal and could still be a big deal if given the opportunity to be. Teams at one point in time cared very much about winning them. They still are to me the best way of determining the actual team champion (as the whole team actually wrestles each other) and not just the efforts of half of the team in the current format. And this is no PSU bashing, I think they would have easily won the team championship in a dual format this season and many other seasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Whoops sorry, I forgot because he wrestled in 2020 it counted even though he still got to utilize the “free” year. Makes a lot of this pretty confusing when him and Starocci won their first titles in the same year in their first real opportunity at it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. So with this stat are you only going to take their best 4 years? O’Toole, Starocci Brooks and others getting 5 chances is going to ruin this stat otherwise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I looked up his credentials on ASUs website so I apologize if it was wrong but it says 2019 Junior world silver, 2018 Junior world Bronze and 2017 Cadet world Gold all in Greco, so I missed that one. https://thesundevils.com/sports/wrestling/roster/cohlton--schultz/12583
  11. Deakin obviously very solid and would already have the size, but I think you might not be giving enough credit to O’Toole Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Good call, I think you’re right. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Anybody know?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Brooks would beat Dean, I think Yianni would give Deakin a heck of a match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Kerkvleit is a cadet world gold medalist and a junior world silver. Schultz a junior world silver in Greco, and he beat Parris by major twice who is a junior world gold medalist in freestyle, but yeah none of Gable’s opponents were as good as the others listed. Not counting Cassioppis accomplishments who he also majored during the regular season. Daton Fix, Mekhi Lewis and Amine are all world class but let’s not diminish the competition that Gable has gone up against. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
