  1. I'm not saying if I am for against the death penalty. The article was about an Iranian wrestler that was executed. I thought it appropriate to post in the thread about Iranian wrestling news. Nothing more to it than that.
  2. https://www.foxnews.com/world/iran-executes-another-wrestler-reports-say
  3. IU has been down for so long, the Indiana HS elites have been leaving the state for decades. Going back to the 80's and 90's, guys like Bud Palmer (Iowa), Keith Davison (wisconsin), Kelvin Jackson (Mich St), Vega (Minny), and into the 00's with Blake Maurer (Ohio St), Tsirtsis (Iowa), Tsirtsis (Northwestern), Howe (Wisconsin), among others. Now the Lee's (PSU), Lee (Minny), Red (Neb), Micic and Parris (Mich). The only 2 highly ranked HS studs that ended up at IU are Coughlin and Angel. I really do hope Angel turns it around, I'm just not that confident.
  4. If that new, unproven coach could sell me on his vision of the program, show me that they are headed the right direction and it felt right, then sure I'd accept an offer. If not, then no I wouldn't. the other problem is, while Indiana has some good HS wrestlers, I don't see one in the pipeline on the level of Jesse Mendez. So it might be a while before IU has another shot at a truly elite in-state wrestler. He will have to develop these in-state recruits into all-americans, and the jury is obviously still out on whether he and his staff can do that. This is year 3, so he's got some time, but you would hope to see some improvement by now. 6-12 in 2019, 2-10 last year and so far 0-2 this year with one or two possible dual wins on the schedule left.
  5. It's a process, sure. But results have to come soon. Angel is doing good things, but it will take more than Indiana HS studs to turn the program around. Getting Mendez would be a coup. Getting a guy like him could potentially cause other highly ranked recruits to follow. If they miss on him, then it will be more of the same.
  6. Still amazes me that Micic graduated high school in 2014 and he is still competing in college. And could again next year since this year doesn't count eligibility wise.
  7. Worth around $1M https://www.sportskeeda.com/mma/henry-cejudo-net-worth#:~:text=Henry Cejudo Net worth 2019,-Advertisement&text=Henry is also an Olympic,to be around %241 million.
  8. Gable should obviously do what a bunch of anonymous fans want him to do. To hell with what he wants!!
  9. No way was he losing to Jose Escobedo. I don't believe that for a second. I could see Hernandez getting the better of him from time to time, but no way Jose Escobedo was.
  10. Alex Tsirtsis. Undefeated HS career, wrestled in the Midlands in HS and only managed one low AA finish at Iowa
  11. Angel Escobedo won state at 112, 125, 130, 135 before going 125 for 4 years at IU.
  12. His best hope for Hollywood is a Jersey Shore reboot.
  13. How'd Schultz get away with wearing that sweater under his singlet? :-)
