  1. Well the thing I wonder about is their announcement said indefinitely. If it were a second offense, it would have a definite time frame wouldn’t it (if the above penalty chart is accurate)
  2. I believe the 10% is related to the scheduled competitions , not calendar days.
  3. Not all who wander, are lost.
  4. So let’s forget about Flo rankings and tournament index for a bit (Tbar you even said at beginning of season they were out of whack) and just look at the athletes and weight classes. 125. For Lee anything other than champ with some bonus points is underperforming. But I wouldn’t go to collapse territory unless he was 4th or below. For PSU, two wins is a bonus. 133, both are in the same boat. They should be top 4, they both could win it. I wouldn’t say collapse unless they were in the 6-8 range. Could be PSU 1, Iowa 4, and I don’t think that would be a collapse. 141 a collapse here for Iowa would be not making the podium. I don’t think we expect him in the top three but we expect him to be on the stand. For PSU it’s finals or bust. 149. Such a tough deep close weight, I think we can call this a collapse only without the podium for Iowa. I don’t think you can call anything 2-5 underperforming, the top 5 are all right there. 6-8 I wouldn’t go as far as collapse. 157 Same thing for Young here. Collapse would be not making the podium. Anything on the stand would be above that even if we feel top 4 is where he should be. 165 and 174 are same boat. We expect both in the finals, second wouldn’t be a choke. Collapse would be finishing out of top 4 184 and 197. Honestly I just don’t know. 285 collapse for Iowa would be off the podium. I know he’s been ranked top three all year but I just don’t think a fifth/sixth place finish is that unrealistic for Cass. So it’ll definately take more things going right for PSU and not Iowa. But I don’t think it will take an Iowa collapse or choke. It will take some guys not finishing where they need to finish, which is not necessarily mutually exclusive with where some think they “should” finish, with PSU having a near perfect tournament (relatively speaking).
  5. A very non essential being. I.E. “spoke on a wheel”; “dime a dozen”....
  6. No leaderboard on top of my page.
  7. What’s the “leaderboard”
  8. Would that depend on the on base situation for those? In other words, is 3 HR, 4RBI better than a cycle with 8 RBI? (3-2-2-1)
  9. Very true. But I think the really cool thing is, PSU will have to have five champs, not just finalists. So 5 champs, and ten AA’s, very very rare. So you got one against the other. In a way if that is the scenario and Iowa finishes on top, it puts the stamp on Minnesota stating the deep team trumps it. You didn’t just win it. You beat five champs. All ifs (could go the other way) but man it’s intriguing as hell. I’m completely non bias as I don’t have a D1 team, and frankly fall in the category of LJB as far as folk fan, but I’m interested as hell in how this tournament plays out.
  10. I’ve found that this place is the best to optimize my passive aggressive!!
  11. Don’t think either way it says right or wrong about the scoring system. Just a matter of preference. Wrestling is an individual sport within a team aspect. Some my favor the greatness of individuals, some may prefer the depth of a whole team. There’s great excitement to that team race as the sessions go by, as well as the school vs school aspect of a dual tournament. Tough call really. Plus and minuses to both.
  12. Bwwwaahhaha. You only have time for a whole bunch of short ones. This may be the best Russel post ever!
  13. Correct. Like I said,3 in 30 seconds. Imagine what one may find if they actually wanted to research the topic before making such strong statements. As for JO whipping McD in HS. Is that the standard now. So and so who went to camp lost to who didn’t go to that camp... This is the point in a typical russell chat where he is fully and firmly dug in with both feet and will not budge. Not other point will be considered and will be argued no matter what is presented. And the part where I, as he puts it, bow out and run home.
  14. So you’re making such a strong statement about the camp without having ever been, and about successful wrestlers not going that route without researching who may or may not have attended that camp over the years. Just to help you a little, in 30 seconds of just looking at one of their social media accounts I saw photos of former campers (not counselors, campers) Stephen Neal, Macey Kilty, Matt McDonough. I wonder what I would learn if I actually wanted to take some time and research the topic.
  15. Where are you getting your data for who has and who has not attended a Jrob camp at some point in their life? That has to take a really long time to compile
  16. And see that’s the beauty of it. Everyone is different and everyone can adjust as they want/need. Maybe one kid will want to take in a few short camps/clinics this off season and not take any so many local tournaments and trainings with the same local kids. And maybe next summer he’s going to wrestle in a couple locals and train with you name it cc, take a couple weeks off, then go to JRob...and then the next summer maybe he’ll keep it pretty much in state and just drive to different tournaments....maybe try out for Fargo. Then you take three different kids who mix in similar type summers different years throughout HS.....?????
  17. But again, if you are, and a lot of people are, doing all those things that we are talking about the other 9-10 months of the year, it’s not limiting your variety. One aspect is that 28 days away from the normalcy of answering to your parents every night is a huuuuuge variety. A first time in life experience for some. Is that not variety? One thing I would question with you is your certain demand of exactly what this camp is and what is isn’t....having never been to it.
