    Programs Not Fully Funded

    In PA, my guess is: Edinboro, Clarion, Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, Bucknell, F&M, Drexel and Penn. Three are fully funded. PSU, Lehigh and Pitt.

    Some thought years ago that MMA's popularity was going to help boost wrestling's numbers. It hasn't. We have the same thing going on now with women's wrestling, meanwhile our numbers continue to plummet. Here in PA, the PIAA has voted to reduce the number of weight classes to 12 which in the short term will help "mask" the problem. Youth numbers in PA are down almost everywhere. Local programs are saying they have 40 kids from K-6 when 30 years ago they were pushing over 100.

    Nolf - Why?

    Tbar has all the answers on this one the sycophant.

    Teasdale Interview

    How does Tbar go from propping ip Teasdale in one post but then goes in full PSU recruiting propaganda zone in the next? Hey Tbar. Prospective recruits do not read this forum.

    Teasdale Interview

    That is how it is for PSU lightweights. Cunningham is a hands on guy from 157 up and it shows.

    Break Dancing in the Olympics!

    Yes, we were screwed because of some other reason and only have 6 weight classes representing the men.

    Zain - Yanni outcome?

    Yes...someone could do time over this.
  8. Does the Iowa wrestling program pay Strittmatter to send all of his guys there and.... Where would Iowa stand in the rankings without Strittmatter and.... What would Pitt, Lehigh and Lock Haven look like if all Strittmatter's guys went there instead?

    Women's College Wrestling

    There will never be long term fan interest potential. Men's wrestling is a fringe sport with spotty success (NCAA's), women's wrestling is even more fringe. In 20 years, you will be able to combine the D1, D2 and D3 women's national championships in one arena and there will always be open seats...that is the reality. That is why I think, someone has already thought of the idea of including the finals of the womens with the mens finals, just so someone will watch it. This line of thinking does not make me a dinosaur, it is the same line of thinking I have when I would rather watch a MLB game than a little league game.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Wouldn't it depend on the type of hotel? Higher end hotels would easily command 6 figure management positions.

    Most annoying commentator catchphrases?

    Whatever comes out of the PSU play by play guy's mouth.
  13. I still say if Iowa was not in a position to win it, PSU would throw in the towel with this lineup which could still be top 5. 125: Teske 133: ??? 141: ??? 149: Verkleeren 157: Berge 165: Manville 174: ??? 184: Rasheed 197: Conel HWT: Cassar

    Who will be the next Cael (as a coach)?

    If Dresser develops a super star from Iowa State and then that superstar takes over a high profile program but we are 15 years away from that. Only happens every 40 years.

    Women's College Wrestling

    Wouldn't it be interesting if a men's wrestling program was dropped to allow a women's wrestling program? Maybe they could drop the number of weight classes so the combined NCAA Finals don't take 6 hours because I can guarantee you someone has thought about intermixing it just like Final X and the WTT.
