    Most stunning -- Lou Banach (who went 1, 3,1 in NCAA) weighing  about 215, pinning 400--pound Tab Thacker, pinning 250-pound Bruce Baumgartner, pinning 260-pound Steve "Dr.  Death" Williams, beating 395-pound Mitch Shelton, running over much larger Wayne Cole 3 times, and beating highly-favored Greg Gibson in the Olympic trials.

    Judging how the Zain/Pico matches went, I'd say Zain would have a hard time with Metcalf or prime-time Schlatter for that matter.

    In 28 matches, Griffith wrestled a whopping 10 total NCAA qualifiers and managed two bonus point victories. In 24 matches, Glory wrestled 9 total qualifiers and had 4 bonus point victories. In 18 matches, Spencer faced 13 NCAA qualifiers and won 12 of them by bonus points. It’s not really that hard.

    Iowa. My brother took me to a meet about 1975 I think. Gable was still an assistant. Interesting note, in the program they handed out at the meet Gary Kurdelmeier said that as good as Gable was as a wrestler, he will be remembered more as a coach. Gary saw it way before it all happened.

    Bodyd reacted to treep2000 in Parris vs Gable S., who ya' got?   
    Here's really all you need to know:
    * Gable is a witch (warlock to be specific)
    * When weighed, Gable weighs similar to that of tiny pebbles or small churches 
    * Witches also float in water, like tiny pebbles or small churches.
    * Ducks also float in water
    Therefore... Gable is a DUCK.
