  1. Gimp, you used data from the two hosting countries, ignoring that athletes from many countries will be there. Also your own graphs show Serbia much higher now than October 20th, and France at about the same levels as October 20th. Most of the rest of Europe has much higher cases now. Almost double. US cases are off the charts compared to 2 months ago.
  2. Worldwide daily cases on October 20th when USAW announced no US wrestlers could attend World's. 352,000 Worldwide daily cases on January 2nd when USAW announced we would send twice as large of team to Herny Delgane. 526,000 Most countries in Europe are far higher now than October 20th. Could anyone from USAW please give us an explanation of their logic on athlete safety? How can you possibly justify both decisions?
  3. So USA Wrestling is sending 33 athletes to the Henri Deglane tournament in France next week, after declining to send a much smaller team to the World's last month, and also refusing to allow any US team members to go on their own. They fed us some tearful dialogue about their concerns for the safety of the team due to covid. Now a month later when covid numbers are even higher, it is OK to send twice as many wrestlers to a second rate tournament in Europe. Twilight zone.
  4. 3 questions. How do we get a list of names of this "unanimous committee"? How many of these same committee members supported sending HUNDREDS of US wrestlers to the recent nationals? Can our top guys attend if they pay their own way or are they blocked by USAW? At least Jimmy Carter signed his name to the 1980 debacle.
  5. To run a half baked national tournament and pass on Worlds is reason to fire them all.
  6. Of course they all have some arrogance. That's how they became the best in the world . They are at a camp selling themselves as an expert. That is why people went to their camp or clinic. Now does that make you feel better?
  7. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. It happens all the time at camps. I've seen Banach, Schultz, and others do this. The kids and coaches seem to universally love it.
  8. Taylor 19 times out of 20. And I'm a big fan of Gabe.
  9. Oklahoma State dual all over again.
  10. John Peterson in 1972. Highest college finish, 5th in NAIA. Silver in 1972 Gold in 1976
  11. Yes, it takes a rare student/athlete to pull that off. Another one was Wayne Wells who passed his bar exam right around the 72 Olympics, where he won Gold at 163lbs. What a couple of studs.
  12. Gary Bohay grew up in Southern California. He went to Fountain Valley HS and wrestled his freshman and sophomore years at UCLA, after which they dropped the program in 1980. He subsequently transferred to Arizona State and wrestled for the great Bobby Douglas. He was arguably favored to win the NCAAs in 1981 @ 126lbs but completely blew out his knee in the PAC12 championships that year. Dan Cuestas (whom Bohay had beaten twice that year) won the NCAAs that year and in 1982, while Bohay recovered from a complete reconstruction of his knee. In 1983 Bohay returned to ASU lineup and made the NCAA finals at 126 but lost a 5-2 decision to Iowa's Barry Davis, who had moved up from 118. He had dual US/Canadian citizenship and wrestled on numerous Canadian world teams. He was in Med School when he wrestled John Smith in the World finals. Gary is currently a internal medicine physician in Tuscon, AZ.
  13. I'll give him 3 years at ASU before he loads up the trunk for the 6th time.
