  1. I feel bad for Gable (I'm obviously biased though as I live in MN) since he will be denied what seemed like a cakewalk to the finals. Parris was the only one who gave him any trouble but in that match Gable was clearly the superior wrestler (again I acknowledge that Parris by far gave him the toughest match up this year).
  2. Let me be clear, I am ALL for those antics of his if he is wrestling the best in the country or if it's a turning point in a duel in a close match. But I forgot it was senior night so I'm less "upset" about it.
  3. I don't like these antics given the quality of the opponent, meant nothing at that point in the match and the fact it was a blow out but...holy cow I've never seen Gable so jacked/in shape.
  4. I agree that Parris is the only person in the country that can give Gable any problems this year. I'd be flabbergasted if he lost to any other person.
  5. It's weird. Gable doesn't seem to want to destroy you and if you look at the score vs. Cassioppi it was 7-5 but Gable was 100% in control that entire match, Cassioppi wasn't even a speedbump. He hit Cassioppi which gave him one point and simply let him go for the other 4. Then again...He looks so nonchalant but aside from Cassar no one has ever really given him any trouble.
  6. Wow, thanks for all the background info guys. Very interesting.
  7. This one has always puzzled me when I look back at it. I checked out of wrestling, I became very resentful after an injury ruined my career, for a few years after high school so I missed a lot of what happened in the years before he went to PSU. A quick perusal on Wiki looks like he turned Iowa state into a legitimate contender for a little bit and obviously it was his alma matter. Can anyone provide context? Was their bad blood? I just find it odd that he would leave Iowa State considering the trajectory he had them on.
  8. No kidding. Weather was the reason Minnesota's basketball missed out on John Wooden. http://articles.latimes.com/1997-03-24/sports/sp-41574_1_san-antoniohttp://articles.latimes.com/1997-03-24/sports/sp-41574_1_san-antonio
  9. This. Back when I was in high school I actually broke my neck in a freak occurrence during practice. Obviously more severe but if your neck is messed up in anyway you should sit.
  10. Tough to say for certain but at minimum he'll have to go undefeated and 4 titles. The fact that he is a true freshman makes it even more impressive. I don't want to definitively say yes or no but he is one of a handful of wrestlers in decades that have the ability and talent to do so. And someone mentioned being adored by fans or counting coaching record which is bollocks. He is a cocky SOB but that doesn't diminish what he is doing/will do on the mat.
