  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Gable should obviously do what a bunch of anonymous fans want him to do. To hell with what he wants!!
  7. 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.
  8. Alex Tsirtsis. Undefeated HS career, wrestled in the Midlands in HS and only managed one low AA finish at Iowa
  9. Angel Escobedo won state at 112, 125, 130, 135 before going 125 for 4 years at IU.
  10. His best hope for Hollywood is a Jersey Shore reboot.
  11. How'd Schultz get away with wearing that sweater under his singlet? :-)
  12. I played soccer my freshman year of HS. Was on the jv team and we scrimmaged the reigning girls soccer state champs. We beat them 3-0.
  13. Any idea where sgallan is? I miss his holier than thou posts.
  14. Does this tell us that Spencer may be winning the battles in the room and Gilman is looking to get away from that to try and figure out how to beat him?
  15. Kolat just baited him the whole time...here, shoot to my right leg. My knees hurt now from watching that one.
  16. Blake Maurer. 4x Indiana state champ had his career cut short at Ohio St due to injury. Matt Coughlin, IU. Won everything there was to win as a senior. Won Fargo, beat Morningstar at Sr Nationals. Was an AA at IU his RFr year and that was it. I think I remember him trying to cut tons of weight. Was 160 as a senior in HS and was trying to make 149 at IU if I remember correctly.
  17. No Williams brothers? And Grammar was from Indiana.
  18. If that Mueller shows up at NCAA's, Lee will tech him.
  19. you keep saying he's been 2x in his 6+ year career. While that is true, I think it is more telling that it is actually 2x in the last 16 months. I think Snyder, while still a medal threat, is not the same. I think he is too muscular and looks stiff/slow on the mat compared to the other elite guys at his weight. I think Cox's athleticism will be the difference in this match up.
  20. 125 Lee 133 Gross 141 Lee 149 Sasso 157 Deakin 165 Bull 174 Hall 184 Zahid 197 Moore Hvy Gable
  21. I don't dislike any teams, but I do dislike some individuals on certain teams. Just a couple of example, I'm not a fan of suriano and his NJ tough guy routine, not a fan of desanto because of his antics. Fantastic wrestler, but again with the fake tough guy stuff.
  22. Close, but not quite. Nick got the initial TD, fireman's dump straight to the back for 2 NF. Red got an escape. 4-1 end of 1. Red down to start the 2nd, gets and escape, 2 TD and 2 NF on a cradle. Rides out Lee to end the period up 6-4. Lee goes down and is ridden the entire period until an escape at the buzzer to make it 6-5.
