  1. Whether an ADA suspension affects his NCAA eligibility remains to be seen. I'm not sure that the NCAA can't impose supplemental discipline within their own jurisdiction.

    This story has everything. An "accidental" ingestion during an out-of-competition period ... because it was being taken by his father ... who was recommended the product by an assistant coach at his school ... and he took it with a "wellness drink" that his mother sells through a multi-level marketing company. Wonderful.

    It says it was a consent judgment so it sounds like a settlement to me. "Here is our story, we'll accept a year suspension and not fight as long as you don't go for two." The panel accepted the stipulated facts that the USADA and Fix agreed to. Smart lawyering because if he had to have that story evaluated in real time by hostile opposing counsel he could have wound up with as much as 4 years if the panel didn't believe him or his father. Chris Perry's twitter is locked and I don't think he wants to answer any questions either.

    Sorry, that should have been JJ Wilson (or Moomey from NE).

    I saw an interview - I think with Dean? - and he suggested it might be LaJoie (from Michigan) at 133. He also suggested Richard (NY) may jump up to 165 and challenge Ramirez. I'm 99% sure Foca is going to start over Berreyesa.

    Assume there is an NCAA season and that in hopes of securing a third title Yanni goes '41:

    Who takes '49? Saunders or Richards? While the pre-colllege results all point to Saunders,

    the improvement made by Richards each year has me seeing him as a tough out.

    i think gabe dean suggested that 141/149 was yianni/saunders in whatever order works, yapoujian at 157 and richard might jump to 165. that may be contingent on yianni going 149, though. if yianni is 141 maybe richard competes to keep the starting spot at 149.

    I love Dylan but he is extremely biased.  If Dake really walks around at 175, then it would have been no problem to do the Flo match at 74kg.

    Obviously he's biased - and as to @hammerlockthree's point, also Out There.  But so what? Bias doesn't really come into play here. Nor does Palacio being Out There - Yianni isn't a wildman and he RT'd it. Why would anyone cut for a Flo exhibition? Arujau and Alvarez wrestled at 140. Taylor and Martin wrestled at, what, 200? 

    My point is only that neither Dake nor Chamizo is going to have trouble with the cut to 74.

    Back to the original topic... I don’t think Dake looked sucked out at 79, but 74 will definitely be tough. As others mentioned, I think it’s tough for Burroughs too. Dake seems to be extremely disciplined so I am sure he will do it right and will be fine 

    for what it's worth

    Little known fact about Carlton. He actually went to LHU his freshman year and was behind Rick Peterson out of Renovo who was the top ranked HWT at the start of the 1984-85 season. Peterson later got beat early at NCAA's and I don't think he even placed. Regardless, Carlton didn't see eye to eye with Thad Turner and transferred to UPJ mid year. The rest as they say is history

    I read that he also got injured playing football

    Yapoujian has 4 years of eligibility left?  I thought he wrestled last season for Cornell?  Is he going to try to get a medical redshirt to get the year back? 

    I assume he's getting a medical redshirt or @Plasmodium's post wouldn't make sense. he is not greyshirting (unless the roster is wrong) and never did. Yapoujian spent his senior year at FLWC and attending Colorado's online high school. he competed at Cornell as a true freshman before getting hurt in south beach (iirc).

    Correct so if he greyshirts after he has already enrolled  In school and the clock has started, he is really just taking a year off and losing a year of eligibility. You can’t put a “pause” on the clock. 

    the way i see it, if Brucki gets surgery and a medical redshirt for '20-'21, then graduates princeton in '21, he should have two years left in grad school at a non-Ivy. right?

    But I don't get why this would be considered a problem. Everyone loves a Cinderella story. I could see a problem if the lower division guys were not competitive. But if they are winning, they should be celebrated.

    It's a problem if the small fries keep embarrassing you I guess. D-I teams probably didn't appreciate Clarion and P-J stealing their prize money.

    I hope they start enforcing things soon.  Maybe Trump should send his storm troopers to Walmart and Lowe's to enforce it.  Nah, it would irritate The Base.

    I know you're joking but while we should definitely be mandating masks in indoor spaces i also don't think police enforcement of mask wearing solves any problems more significant than the ones it creates. But that's a whole other topic that I basically regret bringing up but can't stop myself from hitting Submit Reply on.

    Yes Vito is more accomplished and I think he wins also, but who knows.  Alvarez was also at a higher weight than Vito (and of course when Vito was at 133 he lost to Chaz Tucker too).

    Vito beat Tucker during the greyshirt and then lost to him during his freshman year. When Tucker beat Vito I thought it meant that Tucker "won" the weight and forced Vito down to 125 but after listening to the Flo interview with Vito I wonder if going down to 125 was already the plan. Any way to see what Vito weighed in at for that match?

    I sat in on another coaches' meeting this afternoon -- sounds like the Ivy coaches have been told that their first competition can't be before 1/9/21.  I haven't seen anything in writing but this came from one of the Ivy coaches.  Unless the NCAA tournament gets pushed back we're looking at a mighty short season.

    Moving an event that large would under other circumstances seem really difficult but if you aren't filling an arena with fans anyway it may not be as hard? I think we are looking at a very short season (at best) though.

    Mike Gray or Grey needs another gig.  Getting a little stale passing out towels.  Time for grasshopper to land his own program.

    From some interviews I've seen, I think he's been looking tbh. But I also think he wants to be matside for Yianni and Kyle (and Nahshon, why not!) in Tokyo.
