  1. Anyone else notice that in the quote from Desanto he refers to Coach Brands as just "Tom?" I'm sure different coaches have different preferences, but in an official statement I would've thought he'd at least call him "Coach Tom."
  2. Will this be streamed anywhere? Trying to decide whether or not to buy tickets.
  3. Completely agree. I find it funny when people say things like: "If it weren't for the 118 pound class back then, wrestler X couldn't have wrestled in college." As you mentioned, the weigh in rules were different, and everything except heavyweight shifted up 7 pounds. So 118 pounders back then walked around about as big (or bigger) than 125 pounders now.
  4. Unfortunately it looks like there won't be spectators?
  5. Wow, I didn't know Rowlands started that light. It's been years since I read Kurt Angle's autobiography, but I think he followed a similar weight trajectory in high school.
  6. Chamizo should definitely be on this list. Also has World golds at 65 and 70, plus Olympic bronze at 65. Medals in four weight classes at the senior level! Has anyone else done that at four weights (not including small changes such as when 96 changed to 97)?
  7. Thank you JHRose and Lurker for the responses.
  8. This might be a stupid question, but who were the coaches in Hall's corner? The one in the darker shirt looked like Terry Brands, but I didn't think he ever coached Greco, and he wasn't at the OTC in 2004. https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2020/May/09/Match-of-the-Day-Dennis-Hall-v-Brandon-Paulson-2004-Olympic-Trials
  9. Fausz wrestled 138 as a senior in high school (although it looks like he wrestled 132 at NHSCA's) - it must have been brutal to hold 125 throughout college.
  10. One of my favorite books. I checked it out from my local library in 2005 and renewed it so many times that it was maxed out and I had to return it. Luckily my parents gave a copy to me for Christmas that year. The OP mentioned that it's hard to get today's kids to read anything lengthy - one nice thing about this book is that the chapters are brief - making it easy to read one section at a time. Old Corps - I can't wait to read it when it's done!
  11. I agree that Community College may be the easiest way in, but haven't Campbell and The Citadel had a fair number of international wrestlers?
