    Am not aware of one...and as the conference's last Sports Information Director, I presume I'd be the one in possession of it! (that title is not a joke, for those wondering)

    If the elitist EIWA has any intergrity they will return the 6 excessive 184 qualifiers back into the overall selection.

    If they keep all six qualifiers, their integrity will be questioned.

    red blades reacted to nom in Lehigh - ?   
    I’m not hearing or reading anything about Lehigh or it’s wrestlers this season.  I see they are competing.  I suppose it is due to them not facing more well known programs. 
     
    Anyone up for giving a rundown of their folks, recent news, and prospects for NCAAs?

    If the announcer points are right ... Latona's 2 back points at the very end did it.  Wow.  Holy crap.  Seriously.  What an ending for this match.  Wow. wow.  wow.

    red blades reacted to MSU158 in Man how good is Brian Smith?   
    Missouri isn’t exactly a long time top wrestling destination and yet Smith has them up near the top every season. Even with top coaches like Henson and Eierman leaving.
    Man, I really wanted him back at MSU once Minkel finally left. Not that he would have came back after a 5 minute conversation with anyone representing the dumpster fire that MSU’s Athletic Department currently is. 
     
    Still, back on topic. They lose both Eiermans and haven’t missed a beat. Many thought the way the left showed some internal problems that could cause a serious drop off. Instead,  Hart takes over 141 and is ranked 4th.  On top of that, they should rather easily have all 10 qualify for NCAA’s. 
     
    I just can’t imagine any coach doing more with what Missouri has to offer. I am truly very impressed!

    red blades reacted to ConnorsDad in American University wrestling?   
    I sent an email to the AD, Dr. Billy Walker, to ask him several questions myself and others had about the wrestling team. I was pleasantly surprised when he called me in less than 5 minutes.
    The first thing we talked about was dropping the program. He told me in no uncertain terms that topic of dropping the program was never even brought up by the president & he should have been more forceful in his email to make sure nobody got that impression. Other points he mentioned are that the season will DEFINITELY go on & there will be a national search for a head coach beginning ASAP. He also said he and others in the athletic dept. are giving Jason and Jeric all the support they can so that the season can go on with as few problems as possible and they are trying to reschedule with Navy (would have been this weekend I believe) in addition to their other matches they have.
    I really appreciated the phone call which he had no obligation to make. Dr. Walker, who wrestled at Air Force and does not know me from Adam, was concerned that people were thinking the program might be dropped. He did not say why Coach Moore is no longer there which I expected. 
    As for all of us who are fans of Teague we will miss him and hope he succeds in his next job. I personally wish Coach was still there coaching & I really hate to see him go. But, if he can't be the coach, then we all are going to be rooting like crazy for a great hire. While I read here on this board where people were saying AU is no Ivy league school, that may be true. But it is WAY above the level of most colleges including what it takes to get in there, succeed while you are there and how graduates are perceived in the work force especially in politics, business and law just to name a few. I know my kid is getting a hell of a lot better education than  he would have almost anywhere else. If I hear anything else I will let everybody know.

    According to news reports, Jim Jordan -- 2x NCAA champ and former assistant coach at Ohio State -- is set to join Dan Gable as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  This should absolutely draw more attention to wrestling. The story is here.

    red blades reacted to iwrite in Hodge   
    Yesterday (Tuesday), Bryan Van Kley of WIN and I presented the Dan Hodge Trophy to Spencer Lee, in a small gathering of media and UI officials (including Tom and Terry Brands of course) in the press area of the Iowa football stadium. It was a wonderful  event and Spencer told us he met Dan Hodge when he was an 8-year-old competing in the Tulsa Nationals. Spencer said it was a real honor to meet Dan and said he wished he could meet him again....
    My wife Bev reminded me of a great story. Once at our WIN Show, there was  a long line of kids to get Dan's autograph. Dan was tired from a day-long  event but wouldn't stop. The last boy arrived and shoved a piece of paper at him and said said nothing. Dan smiled but did nothing. The boy stared sheepishly,  and mumbled "Sign." Again, Dan did nothing, just smiled. The little boy looked around nervously and then Dan said "What else should you say?."  The boy paused and said softly, "Please." Dan jumped up with both arms raised, grinning -- "You said the magic word!" and sat down and signed. The boy's dad was standing next to me, and said:  "What a great lesson Dan Hodge just gave my son! What a great man!"
    That's the Dan Hodge I knew and admired so deeply. My entire column in the next issue of WIN will be about Dan. -- Mike Chapman

    For whatever reason, I guess Legger was already taken (hence, Cary by the Lake, soon to be former place of residence.)
    Perhaps, Legger pt.2? Legger II, Legger deux?
    You may certainly incorporate Legger in there somewhere.
    Glad to hear you're coming back north of the Mason/Dixon line (AND in NE PA?)

    I was a little confused by your claim that klehner and I were believed to be one and the same by the Lehigh forum,. But I was intrigued, so I went over there to take a look.
    Imagine my disappointment to find out that it is NothingMatters and klehner that stand accused. Sigh, internet infamy will have to wait for Wrestleknownothing.
