    The Brown and White Intrasquad (the misnamed "Wrestle-Offs" finally laid to rest) is Thursday.  No indication on the LU schedule that it will be streamed.  Anyone have any info?

    **** No mention on Lehigh.edu  Sports  Multimedia.  I would say it is not being streamed.

    Cary never makes negative posts.  Except about other posters.  And Facebook.  And the Thought Police.  And ...

    Oh, never mind.

    Blades:  You nailed it.  I am an equal opportunity offender, however I do not make nasty posts just to inflame, I point out when someone is either very wrong, or if they are acting or have a history of acting in an inappropriate manner.  Remember my motto is: Integrity is doing the right thing, even if no one is looking.

    That hurts my feelings.

    **** First, I do not agree with or like the level Rich B stooped to with his post.  However, with all the negative and snarky things you have posted on WRreport.com over the years regarding Lehigh, the coaches and the wrestlers, I think you should not be offended so easily.  Maybe everyone should take a step back and just enjoy college wrestling without the negative posts.


  4. **** Really looking forward to seeing who the Lehigh starters will be.  Obviously, 157, 174, 184, 197 and Hwt are a lock with: Humphreys, Kutler, Weiler, Jakobsen and Wood in place, (hammers at the top end of the lineup).  125: Paetzell vs. Polito, 133: Farro vs. Lane/McGonagle, 141: Pomrinca vs. Moran, can Hoffman make/hold the weight? Is Karam ready yet and can he make the weight?, 149: Karam vs. Hoffman/Lobeck/Malyke Hines, 165: Gallick vs. Meyer/Lane or Ruth/Frinzi.

    I would think Paetzell will have the edge at 125.  Farro probably the favorite at 133, depending on how D1 ready McGonagle is.  Pomrinca is a 5th year Sr and very good defensively at 141, Moran is a goer and if Hoffman can make/hold the weight or Karam is ready to go, the weight could be wide open.  Probably a lot of flux during the season.  149 Same questions as 149 with Hoffman and Karam, (both really good), regardless 149 will be  strength.  I think 165 is Gallicks' to lose if he can make/hold the weight, although Meyer is a potential breakout guy for the future.  The rest of the lineup seems already decided barring injuries, (I hope and pray Lehigh is luckier than what happened last season).  I think the coaching staff will want to Red Shirt all the incoming Frosh (McGonagle, Hines, Ruth and Frinzi), unless they are obviously better than the other men.  The wildcard will be how much impact having Chance Marstellar in the room working with the middle weights will have.


  5. **** Nothing in stone as of yet, but potential contenders may be:

    • Nate Gallick: 5th year senior, if he can make and hold the weight.  He is a real pinner who hopefully will benefit from having Chance Marstellar in the room.  
    • Brian Meyer: Redshirt Frosh from Phillipsburg, NJ, same as Paetzell, (always tough). Wrestled off with Humphreys last year at 157.  He will be tough.
    • Kent Lane: 5th year senior
    • Edmond Ruth: True Frosh, brother of Ed Ruth, PSU Champ.  He probably will Redshirt. Can really benefit from a Redshirt year working with Marstellar and Kutler.
    • Luca Frinzi: True Frosh from Bethlehem Catholic.  Great defensive wrestler.  Can really benefit from a Redshirt year working with Marstellar and Kutler.
    • Trey Cornish: Redshirt Junior. Slick, just needs more mat time at D1.

  6. LU1979 posted: I don't think my old school, Lehigh is to far off this group but they will need some guys to step up this year to be top 4.

    **** Agree. I am waiting to see what the addition of Marstellar to the coaching staff has on the middle weights.  

    125: Paetzell (Jr): Paetzell rated around 15.  He is a scrapper.  Was too small at 133 last year.

    133: Farro (Jr) : Rate around 16.  Split time between 125/133 last year.  A real bulldog/fireplug type of guy.  Not bad 2 NJ guys to start things off.

    141: Uncertain as of yet.  Can Hoffman (So) make/hold the weight?  Beat Kolodzik in FS last year.  Otherwise, Pomrinca (Sr) or Moran (So) until Karam (Jr)  is ready to compete.

    149: Hoffman/Moran: Until Karam is ready.

    157: Humphreys (So):  R12 as true frosh.  Exceedingly Strong, gave Noll a good match until a late fall.  Looking for Marstellar to make an impact on his feet. Top 4.

    165: Can Gallick (Sr) make and hold the weight?  Another project for Marstellar to impact.  Gallick is a real pinner. If not, then Meyer (Fr), tough NJ kid.

    174: Kutler (Sr) : No need to say much more, 2X AA.  Will only get better because of Marstellar. Top 2.

    184: Weiler (Jr): Finally at true weight class.  Strong, explosive, potential placer.

    197: Jakobsen (Jr):  Really tough on top, needs to open up on feet. Potential placer.

    285: Wood (Jr):  Top 2-3, very aggressive on feet.  


  7. **** Funny I posted this comment on FB regarding WrestlingReport.com no longer being active and it was rejected for not meeting community standards.  

    Since WrestlingReport.com seems to be no more, it is very hard to get any information regarding what is happening in The Room.

    Big Brother is definitely watching.  According to Pogo: "We have met the enemy, and we is they".


  8. **** I cannot wait to see the impact Marstellar has on the Lehigh mid weights.  Humphreys is built a lot like Marstellar, (who always gave up Height and Reach), but was very successful.  I have not been able to get to PA yet this season and visit "the room" like usual, but I will be travelling there on business in November.  I am hearing great things.  I am also hoping Gallick can make and hold 165 as he is a real pinner who could benefit from working with Marstellar on his feet.  I also looking forward to how True Frosh Ruth will benefit from a daily mix of Marstellar and Kutler.    


  9. Revised Lehigh Potential Lineup

    Upper weights are Hammers.  Lots of unanswered questions down in lower weights, but could be very, very good by mid-year.  We shall see.

    125: Jaret Lane (So): Is his knee fully healed? Can he make/hold 125 at his height? Pinner.

             Luke Resnick (So): Started season as 4th string, injuries (Schram, Parker, Lane) forced him into action.  A real Gamer who took one for the team      last year.  Will be better.         

    133: Branden Paetzell (Jr):  Another real Gamer.  Will be very tough. R12

             Nick Farro (Jr):  A Fireplug, will be tough. Potential R12.

             Malyke Hines (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt

             Connor McGonagle (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt

    141: Ryan Pomrinca (Sr): Good defensively, but needs to open up his offense.

             Dan Moran (RS So): Aggressive, needs a few Top wins.  Could be very good.

             Joe Lobeck (RS Jr):  Just needs more mat time.

              Malyke Hines (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt

              Connor McGonagle (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt     

    149: Luke Karam (Jr): Great on the mat, neutral offense improving. R12 to Low AA.

             Jimmy Hoffman (RS So):  Real Scrapper, just needs mat time.

    157: Josh Humphreys (So):  R12 as True Fr, potential Mid AA.  Incredibly strong and aggressive.

             Kent Lane (Sr): Solid

             Brian Meyer (RS Fr): Very good but needs mat time.

    165: Cole Walter (Sr): Very strong.  Can he stay healthy? R12 potential.

             Chase Gallick (Sr): Extremely exciting.  Can he make/hold the weight? Pinner.

             Trey Cornish (Sr): Exciting, just needs mat time.

             Edmund Ruth (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt

    174: Jordan Kutler (Sr): 2X AA, rock solid, Mid to High AA.

    184: Chris Weiler (Jr): Finally, at natural weight.  Low to Mid AA.

             Jake Logan (True Fr): Possible/Probable Redshirt

    197: Jake Jakobsen (Sr): R12 in 2019. Killer on top, neutral offense improving.  R12 to Low AA.

    285: Jordan Wood (Jr): 4th in 2019, Top 3 AA, maybe Finalist.

  11. You ever hear stories about Gene Mills cutting weight?  I seem to recall one about his mounting an exercise bike in the van during a trip to a Lehigh dual.  

    **** The story I heard was the same thing.  Gene's normal walking around weight was around 135+ during wrestling season.  He pedaled all the way down on the mounted bike, in the back of a van from Syracuse and made 118 that night.  The match was the next day/night?, and by match time he was back in the mid to upper 130s.  As great as Weaver was, Gene threw him around like a rag doll.  There was nowhere near the controls on weight management as there are today.
