    LHU125 got a reaction from gowrestle in How Many Guys Not Returning?   
    Can you blame them? For most that aren't on a full-ride you're still spending thousands of dollars each year at a university. Now, perhaps more than ever, guys are being forced into looking at the bigger picture of their post-athletic careers. Regardless of where you stand on it, Covid is forcing a lot of people to look in the mirror.

    There were 11 other distinct winter and spring championships which he did not mention directly.  You're trying to make something out of nothing.

    You know something?  Anyone who puts quotation marks around the word "experts" in order to dismiss their, well, expertise, doesn't warrant any more responses.  Go listen to your own "experts" (I'm guessing Trump, Hannity, anyone who still thinks hydroxychloroquine actually works for the novel coronavirus, and anyone who still thinks that masks don't work).

    Of course. I disagree about all countries needing but I'm sure the word most will suffice here. 
    In the weekly (and now bi-weekly as in every other week) USA leaders calls there wasn't any talk about them being canceled and they were discussing the trials for these events.
    But the UWW did at least postpone cadets and as such no plans for those trials. The U23/Junior world trials were set for end of year in Ohio but it sounds like they might get moved. That makes me think they might be difficult to hold anywhere.

    LHU125 got a reaction from hammerlockthree in Did Nomad Really Get Fired?   
    I see your point, but he WAS a world team member (David Taylor or not he was, s*** happens) as far a relevancy to the sport. He is an idiot however and I dislike the Flobro's promoting that kind of frat dude behavior. It's fine in doses but they've just become out of pocket with it.

    The short "just the facts ma'am" version:
    A couple of the women's national team members stated on twitter that they were offered a match on the 7/25 card, but that it ($$) was waaaaay less than what the men were getting.
    PD3 came on and said (paraphrasing) that he would pay to watch women and greco, but the average fan would not.
    This started a little bit of back and forth on the topic.
    PD3 started taking it a little past expressing his opinion on why the women aren't being offered more, and started taking personal shots, at one point making what could be considered a threat toward one of the women.  He eventually posted a screenshot of a typed apology.
    Salata was one of the women involved in the dialogue.  UWW Creative (a paradoy twitter account, thank you JB)  retweeted one of her tweets with a comment about her being on fire, and she responded that is nothing, just wait until I show FLO about one of their employees texting the women telling them they should post more bikini pics.
    The next day NJRTC announced they had released PD3, PD3 tweeted that he was withdrawing from the card since they didn't have any women or greco matches, and Flo announced he was no longer on the card.  Willie Saylor tweeted that there was more to PD3 than just the tweets, and he could be in big trouble.  Pat Mineo tweeted that Nomad had been fired.
     
    Everything else (including the Saylor and Mineo tweets) is pure speculation.

    I was responding to a specific claim about a school like Stanford charging 100k. An average contribution of 15k/year is still obviously way too high. You don't have to convince me that the loan crisis is serious. I work at a university. I see it every day.

    And there's definitely something to say for investing in your campus experience. That's an important part of college. But the balance has been completely out of whack for a long time. I also think schools are overestimating the impact of their investment. Sure, the students love high tech dorms, but that's rarely a determining factor. It's more of an added bonus. Most students don't even live in the dorms after their freshman year anyway.
    I'd love to see these public institutions reinvest in their actual academic services. Better pay for faculty and staff. Stop leaning on grad students and adjuncts to teach so many courses. Offer better career services departments. If you want a high tech dorm, find a private donor. Otherwise, just make sure you're offering a safe place for these students to live in relative comfort, not luxury. They'll end up living in much worse conditions in off campus housing after a year anyway.

    Also why the country has almost $2 trillion in student loan debt. School used to be affordable before their were ipads in the walls and stuff.

    Sorry for sounding like that.  I’m just tired of people whining about things like this or similar (last year seniors should get another redshirt year).  These kind of issues need to be seen in the big picture. They are minor and we should not expect big accommodations given the bigger issues. 
    Many are missing the big picture.

    How many freestyle matches have you watched that were too much like sumo? People get so amped up to see someone "shoot em off" the mat for a stall call so I don't think it would be any different for a point. If anything it would make it more exciting. The sumo thing is such a poor argument to me. 
    P.S. Sumo is lit.

    This is going to have a profound effect on this year. That decision alone is going to hurt and potentially kill programs and universities.
