  1. This is sad. Is our leadership (used to be FILA) planning their retreats to Phuket, Thailand?
  2. Chad Zaputil… incredible Gable product. 3x runner up.
  3. The name “Cael” was known by everybody except Ed Ruth. Carl stepped on the campus and established himself immediately. Nobody except for Cale Sanderson the athlete would have been able to recruit David Taylors. He would have lost a lot of people from the state of Pennsylvania, which was the reason he went to Pennsylvania and started his program. He’s cutthroat when it comes to recruiting and he runs a very tight ship it comes to any extracurriculars outside of wrestling, school, and God. Cael would have outperform Koll at Cornell but probably would have missed out on a few recruits and team titles due to strict. Koll is great, but he’s no Cael no matter where he is at. This is coming from an unbiased Iowa fan. Not a big fan of the way Cael treats some of his recruits, but he has a very good thing going at Penn State. I think he would have still won national championships at Cornell but not by such big margins as consistently. Maybe take away to national championships that were won by his team.
  4. John Smith… he created an entire new style that nobody on the planet could figure out. After he had perfected his stance like “a scientist” and then became a great coach….even if he is a Cowboy!
  5. Yes but at the end of the day it’s not an Olympic Gold, and to purists such as ourselves it’s easy to see and understand. At the end of the day it’s just an excuse though, just like John Smith not winning one of his matches at the Olympics against Lazaro Reinoso. I guess what I’m trying to say is that at the end of the day Smith got it done and Burroughs did not. So to the masses or just your average Joe wrestler Olympic gold is everything.
  6. That depends on how much weight you put on world and Olympic medals. IMO two Olympic Golds trump a lot of world gold medals. Some food for thought: there are plenty of wrestling fans who have no clue who Besik Kudukhov is, but almost everyone knows who John Smith is. Does anybody remember the tear that Kudukhov went on? He was by far the best wrestler on the planet in any white class. But for whatever reason he did not get it done when all the marbles were on the line.
  7. This is great news! He’s already signed a multi year contract and they are going to turn a star into a superstar. I love whoever his manager/lawyer is for getting him another year at Minnesota to go along with the contract! When I look at what his goals and dreams are I say that this is probably the best case scenario.
  8. This was his dream. He has so many options right now and he can make a lot of money in the WWE. He can be the first highflying heavyweight. I’m thinking he will make some money and then get the itch to compete again eventually, but it may be MMA. He really needs a good solid lawyer and only commit to a certain time frame. He can make bank writing a book and he should. If worse came to worse he could always make money doing wrestling camps.
  9. He’s young and he will learn. My father started me lifting early and was a bodybuilder. And I was definitely not AJ Ferrari level but I used to do you poses in the morning and I would pump up before I walked on the beach to pick up the ladies. Add that to a very hormonal young man that is a National Championship….. what do you expect? I also think he is great for the sport! People show up for stuff like that. Yeah he may be polarizing but he’s a superstar and he puts butts in seats!
  10. Perhaps I can give you the short version of what Chael is talking about. You have to be on the list in Georgia but basically anybody who is anybody in the wrestling world can you get on the list. Oh the cooler has three ice-skating arenas four kids skating. I saw Gable Stevenson putting on some shoes to skate by the way. Anyways.... so they quarantine off one of the areas and most of the people on the list has been checked for Covid symptoms. Since it’s a skating ring the crowd area is where we are supposed to stay, but there were people walking around on the mat. I would have but I didn’t see anybody big that I know. I saw Kevin Jackson and Gable Stevenson outside of a weight room that is just outside of the skating ring. So basically I could’ve done more and had more to brag about, but out of respect I didn’t want to push it. I know this is off-topic but wow Gabriel Stephenson is a great guy. When he’s not getting ready or cooling down from a wrestling match he is a different person. He was so humble! I knew Kevin Jackson was but I guess it’s Stevenson wanting to be a professional wrestler and all that gives him the bad boy look. Any other questions I could answer I’d be glad to.
  11. This is so epic. I live 15 minutes away and I’ve gotten to see them this week. I chatted with Kevin Jackson and Gable Stevenson. I was basically sitting with all of the families. Kyle Dake and David Taylor went live about 5 feet in front of me. The cooler is so tiny and off the beaten path. We got some quality one-on-one time. Everybody was extremely nice!
  12. Hmm I’ve always wanted to meet someone who worked with Bob Lazar.
  13. So now you are asking me to bet against you about a kid deadlifting a weight in the off-season, but you want me to find it in season. If it makes you feel any better my lifts were out of season as well. You were the first to imply that it’s possible for all these high schoolers. I’m not interacting with someone who gets their laughs for calling out kids, be it Ferrari, a high schooler, or another College wrestler. Goodbye No doubt you will try to spin this as me not answering the question. Well it seems to me that this is just a rant that you are on and you are not very interested in having a dialogue. Continue to have fun pushing your narrative and refusing to engage.
  14. It’s a new form of retaining testosterone naturally. It’s kind of like keeping from “giving your girlfriend action”. And the idea is to cling onto as much crap as you can during a match. I hear that there’s a lot of pins and it speeds up a lot of matches. Powers Cleans is a startup business I have going on the side that is colon hydrotherapy. The only difference is we have to use a pressure washer since we have to take care of wrestlers after they do their 7 minute power clings.
  15. Well if it’s that important to you then contact me via personal message and I can show you the record books. But I don’t really care what you think of me. It’s that you stated that you didn’t believe that many other high schoolers kids were doing that and I don’t see you that everyone of them are. Where did I say that a lot of them were? We were in an extremely lucky situation to have who we had. I was an extremely blessed kid kid to have a father was so much knowledge and experience. You can’t start calling kids with the highest lifts all cheaters. And no I didn’t miss my calling because I was able to compete in the offspring at power lifting competition, and continued to do it for many years. My main point is you can think something it’s crazy without juicing, but would you accuse the most flexible or fastest of juicing? It’s an Innocent until proven guilty thing. I’ve had my suspicions of wrestlers who locked Horns with in the past, but that does not mean I can accuse them of something they’ve never been caught for.
