  1. 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.
  2. To run a half baked national tournament and pass on Worlds is reason to fire them all.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. Taylor 19 times out of 20. And I'm a big fan of Gabe.
  6. Oklahoma State dual all over again.
  7. Just crashed on my phone.
  8. John Peterson in 1972. Highest college finish, 5th in NAIA. Silver in 1972 Gold in 1976
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I'll give him 3 years at ASU before he loads up the trunk for the 6th time.

    Lee Kemp

    Interesting that both Ed and Lou Banach were in Lee Kemp's corner in this match, since both were teammates of Jackson Kistler at Iowa.
  13. Ogal, I agree with you 100%. Very well written. One request, can you re-read what you have written except swap out "Zain" for "Patrick Downey" and 2019 Worlds, and give it the same consideration. Very similar, in my opinion.
  14. Yep, I was just referring to this qualifier. One more chance but a much much tougher road.
