  1. I am still butt hurt about that match. I canceled right after, but hey, if everyone is now vouching for Flo then obviously I should reconsider. Also, I’m a big fan of Askren’s addition. I think he’s pretty insightful, his stories are pretty funny, and the malcontent in me finds it amusing when he gives Pyles a hard time!
  2. lol Now show us your handsome mug! I’m a big fan of this kid: did his own “Vision Quest” by cutting down to get a chance at Lee, *beat* Lee (injured or not, Lee put his foot on the line), and he’s freakin’ relentless. Pressure, pressure, pressure. Can’t quit, won’t quit. Did he act out? Yeah, but he was straight outta high school and onto a national stage. If there was video of me at my worst moments at 18 or 19, it would make this kid look angelic, lol Yeah, other kids have handled the spotlight better, but you got parents spearing kids in the back, so he’s not the worst ever. BTW, I wouldn’t tackle a kid, I’d have “have a word” with his dad.
  3. “Bad weather would not necessarily have prevented Bryant’s helicopter from flying, because it should have been equipped with instruments that allow pilots to fly in inclement conditions, experts said.” https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-01-27/kobe-bryant-crash-and-helicopter-safety%3f_amp=true But, yeah, it looks like the weather definitely played a part. I guess he figured “I’ve done this a million times, no big deal,” just like Schultz probably figured “this dude is crazy, but it’s not like he’s gonna kill me or something.”
  4. Schultz knew he was living with a mentally unstable person. Bryant was just doing what he’d done for 20 years.
  5. I like your list, but who is your pick if you gotta choose between Ruth and Nickal?
  6. I did exactly that with Steiber and Russell at first but I wanted to slot guys where I thought they were at their best.
  7. I get where you’re coming from but I was sticking to guys who had completed their careers. Also, Spenser has won only(?) two titles, whereas McDonough was a three-time finalist. But I wouldn’t argue much against your picks, either.
  8. Saw something on this topic and figured it would be fun to throw out my picks and get you guys’ opinions, too Here’s my team: 125 - Matt McDonough 133 - Tony Ramos 141 - Logan Steiber 149 - Zain Retherford 157 - Jason Nolf 165 - Kyle Dake 174 - Chris Perry 184 - Ed Ruth 197 - J’Den Cox HWT - Kyle Snyder I wanted to slot guys in at weights where they were at their best, that’s why I put Stieber at 141 and Dake at 165. I know Ramos only won one title at 133 but he was a two-time finalist and didn’t feel like there were any better options. I guess an argument could be made that 133 seemed weaker, or that it was tougher and that’s why nobody repeated at that weight. Let’s hear some of your lists!

  10. To be clear, you’re disputing the average age of troops in WWII, but you agree Wayne was a douchebag, right?
  11. What branch were you in? I was in the Marine Corps.
  12. I don’t think there’s enough money to be made in college wrestling for these kids to use PEDs. This isn’t like college football. Boosters and agents aren’t throwing money at them. I guess maybe a kid with a full scholarship can afford PEDs, but the risk/reward ratio seems pretty poor.
  13. You’re comparing this kid’s actions to those of Lee Harvey Oswald and John Wilkes Booth? You’re being ridiculous.
  14. There was a kid we called “Dirt Hill,” scored crazy high on the ASVAB, shoulda been a Navy nuke guy. Smart AF but too dumb to wash the back of his head. We always had to remind him, “just cuz you can’t see it don’t mean we can’t” We’d be at Applebee’s with a “genius” who still had cammie paint on the back of his head.
  15. I really like this kid. Goes on his own personal-but-highly-public Vision Quest his senior year, kicks ass at no-name Drexel, transfers to big, bad, Iowa and just continues to improve. Keep doing your thing, Kid.
