  1. I've heard rumors that the NCAA would possibly be looking into complete separation of RTC's on college campuses. Apparently the solution to this would be to have completely separate buildings (i.e. DT's M2, Steiber's wrestling academy) or just out right purchasing a building. I'm curious if other sports have a similar operation to wrestling's RTC's and what are the realistic possibilities that the NCAA pulls the plug on them?
  2. I understand that, however I would imagine he'll certainly be wrestling with the NCAA guys. The RTC eligible guys (i.e. 90% of the team I'd guess) will wrestle during "RTC" practices.
  3. Anyone want to fill me in on what a Director of Performance does? What other programs are using nonsense positions to get guys in the room?
  4. An old coach of mine used to tell me something similar in that "No one will remember what you do." His thought process with this was to shut out outside distractions (social media, fans, etc.,) and just focus on wrestling and living in that moment.
  5. People out here acting like Freetyle mat wrestling is easy have clearly never wrestled Freestyle themselves.
  6. Can't finish if you can't get to their legs so...
  7. Yes I have seen it many times lol.
  8. Well this topic went about the way I expected it to...
  9. I can't say folkstyle referees are any better.
  10. I know this will certainly stir the pot however it needs to be brought up. With the great news of Women's Wrestling's emergence in the NCAA and a solid number of programs being announced, how is this going to impact Folkstyle in the long run? We already have high profile athletes like Yianni Diakomihalis advocating for the NCAA transition to freestyle. Women's wrestling is the future of the sport so I am interested to see if Folk sticks around. Obviously, there are a ton of hypothetical/scenarios but should folk stay?
  11. Almost forgot about those. They were redshirt year in 2014. Sadly never made it to NCAA's.
  12. People forget that NCAA season is like 6 months long. Takes a toll.
  13. The answer is exactly what you don't want to hear so I don't know how else to explain that. If you think that being a more mature (physically and mentally) doesn't have an impact then you're being ignorant. Secondly, the amount of money to keep someone in school for 6-7+ years strictly because they're good at sports is nonsensical. It goes across all sports as well. It would take away opportunity from a ton of athletes. There's a ton of other reasons the eligibility rules exist.
  14. https://apswrestling.com/ After the AWL and Real Pro Wrestling it seems that a lot of people want the same thing but why can't they come together for it? First match is slated for July 7th, 2019.
  15. Comments like this are why fans/wrestlers/alumni get upset. Why should a great coach not be at a smaller program? Believe it or not but coaches do have families and outside factors that influence their decisions. It isn't just solely on a paycheck and "fixing" a down program.
  16. Start looking at RTC's and how they're used in "recruiting." All the posts on this thread talk about a wide spread problem, and those involved in programs surely know the issues as well. NCAA and USAW both need to hold their separate institutions accountable when it comes to our sport.
  17. The obnoxious gum chewing is worse than the shirt.
  18. More like the refs getting absolutely caught up and losing control of a match that the entire arena was fixated on. How can people blame/punish the wrestlers when the officials don't even know how to make the call on an unclear rule? Boring wrestling or not Stoll is not going to be the last "Stoll" so expect more of this until a clear cut rule is figured out that the refs can call.
  19. This is why nearly all the Lock Haven wrestlers have 40+ matches in a season. The chances of getting a solid RPI rank are worse than getting your win percentage up to qualify a spot.
  20. I get what you're saying but how do you see that as not a problem? Perhaps bias isn't the correct word but there needs to be a third party or an adjustment. I think the politics of every coach reaching out to other coaches to make a deal or reason to have their guy hurts the sport.
