    Lurker got a reaction from russelscout in Would you follow women's college wrestling?   
    I would have to think yes.  I follow all styles of wrestling pretty much to the same extent, but I don't watch much live wrestling.  No flo or track....youtube is my friend.  So I imagine nothing would be different with a D1 women's season.

    Do you have some solid source for this, or is this another I don’t like someone/something so I’m going to blast BS about it, truth be damned, because I’m an anonymous internet poster...thing?

    Running wrestling camps back in those days... our clinicians were constantly on the phone during breaks setting up their next workout partner, and using the money they earned at the clinic to pay for the flight.

    Was hard to continue training, at the level to maintain best in the world, financially those days.

    Isn't the purpose of college to prepare you for aspects of the career world?  So in that regard, shouldn't they learn they have the right to make a move that best fits their goals without being told they have to be unemployed for a year.   Every bad decision has consequences.  Every good decision has benefits.  If any of these guys make a bad decision by transferring, the consequences will come naturally.

    Transferring may be "entitlement" to some, and if so it falls under one of the very few things we actually ARE entitled to.  Life, liberty and the (here's the important part) pursuit of happiness.
    College coaches switch schools, businessmen switch companies, why is the student not allowed to make a move that they feel best fits the pursuit of their goals without some sort of backlash about it?

    Indeed, if there's an avocado I'm in.  In fact I'd go as far as to adding an extra rule to the Coach Finstock in Teen Wolf's rules of life.
    1)  Never get less than twelve hours sleep
    2)  Never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city
    3)  Never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body
    4)  Never trust anyone who doesn't like or looks down on avocado

    Lurker got a reaction from ergo189 in Is it too late to start Wrestling?   
    Absolutely start but don’t worry for a second about any tournament/match results....for awhile. I’d even suggest avoid competing in any tournaments for a bit. Focus on improving on something every day, and having fun. (This message is NLWC approved). But seriously it’s a tough sport, as tough as it looks it’s even tougher once you’re in the grind. But it’s a wonderful sport and where you are focused makes all the difference in the world.
