  1. **** I analyzed the match prior to it and felt Lee was going to win because he is just too complete a wrestler, (neutral, top and bottom). His technique is excellent. He has an incredible gas tank and his length is tough to handle. Pletcher is also excellent but depends on his explosiveness from neutral and his tremendous core and thigh/butt strength to negate most leg attacks. He has legs like redwoods. However, once he is down he really doesn't have a really strong up and out move, at least not good enough to get away from a really good rider like Lee. I think we will see 2 re-matches, with Lee winning both. Lee will be NCAA Champion.
  2. **** Lehigh 2020-21 125: Paetzell: potential 2020 AA. 133: Farro/ Lane: Farro could surprise and AA in 2020. Either way 133 will be a strong weight. 141: Moran/McGonagle: Another strong weight. 149: Hoffman/Karam/RS Frosh Hines, another strong weight. 157: Humphreys: potential 2020 AA. 165: Meyer: True 2020 Frosh, who is getting very close to turning the corner. EIWAs may be the time he breaks through. 174: Logan/Ruth: Both will be RS Frosh with high potential. Kutler will be missed. 184: Weiler: potential 2020 AA, just needs more consistency. 197: Jakobsen: will be strong weight. 285: Wood: already AA and potential 2020 AA will be in the mix ongoing.
  3. **** Ty Moore (RIP): Pinning machine in highschool (4Xer), but somehow, never translated to college D1 success.
  4. **** After Lehigh 149 Jimmy Hoffman was injured against Minnesota 149 Lee with an illegal hold (bad knee injury), Coach Brandon Eggum supposedly said: "guys do that all the time and the refs rarely call it illegal". Not very classy.
  5. **** Not to forget Ty Moore (RIP), (4X PA Champ), who was almost unbeatable in high school, but never AA'd in college.
  6. **** Lehigh vs. PSU 125 3 L 133 3 P 141 4 P 149 Toss Up Leaning 3 L 157 3-4 L 165 4-6 P 174 Close but 3 P 184 3 L 197 3 L 285 3-4 P Will depend on if Wood has his stamina back from illness. If The Gods shine on us then 17-16 PSU, if not could be as bad as 23-12. Leaning towards 19-16. Definitely will be watch on Patriot League.
  7. **** I am very sorry to hear this. I was in the Lehigh room for practice, only last Tuesday with my son Jake. John like usual, came over and talked and took the time to point out all the new wrestlers. I hope everything is ok. John is a class act and I wish him well in whatever he does next.
  8. **** First the Okst reporter is a Homer first and foremost. Second Plasmodium sounds like someone who likes to pick at scabs. Just one person's opinion. If you were not there then you are handing out 2nd, 3rd or 4th hand information. I know Jack Foley personally. He is one of the top healthcare professionals associated with wrestling. He would never disqualify any wrestler so Lehigh or any other team could have a leg up in a match or dual or tournament. Jack is on the the most respected in his field, Let it go.
  9. **** That is an easy one. First, they want guaranteed revenue of a yearly commitment. Second, is an unwritten rule in business, that if you are not going to commit to an extended relationship at a reduced rate, then you are going to pay a premium for the flexibility of a shorter commitment. A Basic business principle.
  10. **** Entering into that scary area is more than most souls could tolerate.
  11. **** No I won't comment, it would be too easy.
  12. **** Bench Press is a good indicator of Push power, however it favors guys with shorter arms. It is just Physics, since the lankier guys have to push the weight farther off their chest. Longer armed/Lankier guys usually will not be able to bench near as much as shorter/stockier guys. Bench Press Strength as a measure of strength and Push power does not necessarily equate to strength and ability to use your strength on the mat. Lankier guys may be just as strong or even stronger in practice. The ability to combine their overall body strength with their range and ability to keep guys away may actually make them stronger on the mat in a more practical way of looking at it.. An Example would be a guy like Wade Schalles, (never a physical specimen), who was able to move and control much more muscular guys. Schalles completely overpowered Lee Kemp (known for his strength and who was much more built) by keeping him away with technique and controlling the ties, and then used his overall body strength to win.
  13. **** Scribe was probably never scored upon because he never stepped on a wrestling mat. Therefore, his record is unblemished.
  14. **** Hey, I resemble that remark. Blessings.
