  1. **** Sorry to see that. It was the best for a long time. I don't know if it was a $ issue or Bruce lost interest or some other reason.
  2. **** It is hard to comprehend. Greg was so many things to so many people. Any attempt to describe him will come up short. I often recall the many times we played golf. He was "real" in every way, no pretense, no excuses. First and foremost I considered him a friend. We have lost a great man. Rest In Peace Friend.
  3. **** Ryan Crookham of Notre Dame Green Pond high school in PA, class of 2022 and #2 ranked overall wrestler of the class has committed to Lehigh University. He is a 2X state champion. He will be a junior this season and has wrestled at 126 last year. This is a monster pick up. Here is the article. https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/highschoolsports/2020/08/notre-dames-crookham-commits-to-lehigh-to-wrestle.html?outputType=amp
  4. **** Sad just plain sad. Obviously The Admin knew before hand. Really shabby to treat wrestlers, coaches and especially Kerry this way. In the long run it is a business and if it cannot support itself, things will change. Hoping all can make plans.
  5. **** Not losing interest at all, just concerned the NCAA may decide it is just not worth it this year. I still routinely visit 3-4 wrestling sites each day.
  6. **** I along with my son and 2 other staunch Lehigh fans, went to the EIWAs at Stabler arena on March 6 & 7, just a few days before the first lock downs. Attendance was between 2,500 and 3,000 for each session. I have not had any health problems since, nor am I aware of anyone else who attended having any health issues, (I keep in touch with many wrestling fans). There must have been Covid 19 germs flying around at that tournament, being the location is in Very Eastern PA and Zero Precautions were taken. Many attendees were from New York, New Jersey, PA, Maryland and other states. We also attended a very crowded local brew pub between sessions. So in answer to the question, Yes, I would attend. We have been locked down too long already. The Lock Down, although well meaning, has severely damaged both our economy and the mental well being of our citizens. Open things up now! There may be subsequent waves of the virus which will result in more sickness, but Herd Immunity is the only real way to deal with the situation.
  7. **** Most people I know tell me: "You have a voice made for radio" (very deep and resonant), I usually answer I also have a face made for radio.
  8. **** The Alton brothers were Pa Strongmen. Andrew was always a threat for backpoints or a fall, however, he did not have much of a gas tank, and he lost more than one match where he was leading early and faltered.
  9. **** Rob Rohn pinning Josh Lambrecht in the NCAA Finals after trailing 14-2 with less than 2 minutes to go. Sorry about the quality of the video. Bring on the Cement Job!
  10. **** Wrestlestats serves a very good purpose as a Database for wrestling results/history of all kinds. It can also be sort of fun to play What If. However, I have thought and still think the algorithm they use (even with all the tweaks they have made), is just ok as far as giving meaningful insights of various matches. Many times when I compare wrestlers or teams, as listed on Wrestlestats, I am left shaking my head, (thinking that result just does not make sense). I have asked more than once, what criteria is used and what weighting is used to yield the results? No answers, (crickets), even though I have asked more than once. Until Andre provides more insights into what the algorithm looks at, I will use it as a database for historical data. I still will trust my own instincts and knowledge where I can factor in the styles, strengths/weaknesses of the wrestlers. Just one man's opinion.
  11. **** Pennsylvania: Where to start, just so many. In no particular order: Wade Schalles, Jack Cuvo, John Trenge, Zain Retherford, Ed Ruth, Kurt Angle, Jason Nolf, Cary Kolat, Carlton Haselrig, Ricky Bonomo, Bobby Weaver, Vincenzo Joseph. Just a sampling, the list goes on and on.
  12. **** I concur on many of these, however the one I regret not seeing the most would have been Kutler vs. Kemmerer. Kemmerer straight on, many leg attacks, in your face Iowa style and raised on PA wrestling in Young Guns. But I could not see him being able to penetrate Kutler, (his strength, his ability to counter and maintain center of mat control or escape from his ride). Kutler does not score tons of points but he has been clamping opponents now that he is finally 100% healthy. I am 99% certain the Finals would be Hall vs. Kutler. Just one observers opinion.
  13. **** Not a movie but: How many of you have watched the old MTV show "Bully Beatdown" with Mayhem Miller? Simply amazing. Guys/Gals who love to beat up and humiliate smaller people, get challenged to go against a MMA professional for the opportunity of winning $10,000.00. All they have to do is go into the cage for 10 minutes (5 minutes grappling and 5 minutes kick boxing). The bullies are given $10,000.00 to start and lose $1,000.00 everytime they tap out during the grappling and if they quit, are knocked out or the ref has to stop the contest in the kick boxing they lose everything. It is a great show!
