  1. Veritas.......the Jon Trenge documentary.....good viewing
  2. they posted 141 twice instead of 149.....only the NCAA major eyeroll
  3. I like Pomrinca's chances since he automatically qualified by allocation (automatic qualifier coming in 5th).....but hey what do I know......
  4. Desperate times, eh Cpt? And just to be clear the point system was derived mainly by 3 EIWA coaches, none of which work for Lehigh......but soldier on.......
  5. Agreed, complaining about seeding is the norm (look at big 10 angst this year)...... it's the point where someone directly starts throwing accusations of scamming at the people that are doing the work that things get ignorant.... Just my two cents, and once again on we go........
  6. No Blades, was not directed at you lol.....and I have read the whole thread, thus the angst.....should be a great weekend no matter who wins/earns the team title..........unless it's Lehigh because dammit those bastards stole it in the pre-seeds.......
  7. Completely agree, but do you think they would sign on for a criteria developed that allows for "one team" to be favored? I mean who writes this stuff? It's an insult to the guy who put the work in to develop it and the coaches who signed off on it..... Any pre-seed criteria I've ever seen has people shaking their heads a bit, thus coaches meeting /review etc.... To blindly throw shade at someone and some program because you disagree with the pre-seeds when they come out is blatant ignorance. Whatever.....I'm foolish, you're ignorant.....on we go......
  8. you think the coaches had no say in what went into developing this criteria? It makes you look ignorant... I'll ask again does letting the process play out versus whining make you look foolish? The answer is a solid yes......
  9. so your theory is somehow Lehigh rigged this and the other 16 coaches thought, yeah cool let's give Lehigh an advantage....... "knowing" where you "think" guys will finish has never been a seeding criteria as far as I can remember.......I have a wild idea, why not let the final seeding and coaches meeting play out before whining about the criteria in place.........nah, whining much more palatable...... at least you admit you are a whiner......puts everything you say into appropriate context.....
  10. Wait.......so it's not a Lehigh conspiracy, it was someone just whining? Shocking really, I mean I was really believing that the 16 other EIWA coaches were all good with Lehigh rigging the pre-seed process in their favor and I was really happy one Army fan had the courage to stand up and point it out for the sham it was.......... uhhh.....no
  11. Anybody know how to see who is signed up this year/know who's attending??
  12. Meyer is a redshirt freshman for Lehigh not a true freshman, while I like his effort and he is improving, I think he is just not big enough to be a legit 165 lber....hope I'm wrong..... From what I've seen, if he can hold the weight, Jake Logan will be Lehigh's 174 lber next year.......
  13. Wow, that is a lot of travelling and expense for one match for Vito......does USA wrestling pay for some of that or is it all on him? Not saying he shouldn't seek out the best competition but ouch......
  14. two things here Red Blades 1) You are quoting two fans who look at things completely differently.....so why the surprise or amusement? We supposed to be clones?? 2) Grumbling and Sour Grapes? What? I like Weiler, and he is our best option, just saying what his track record is... and I also said "not saying Loew isn't going to be good"....all you have to do is go on twitter and see the Flo guys complaining how Weiler is one of the toughest guys to rank because of his track record of big wins and baffling losses.......
  15. Listen I get you want to take something positive out of the Lehigh dual.....but Loew's win over Weiler is not something you should get that excited about......Weiler has a history of gassing out badly, losing matches he should win (and then looking puzzingly good other times) AND injured his shoulder in the first period..... Not saying Loew is not going to be good, just wouldn't decide that by a win over Weiler......you can say BUT he just beat Lou Deprez, and I would respond with not that surprised, and also wouldn't have been surprised if he lost to Cornell's third string 184 the next day.......
  16. I will agree with Klehner on that one, if people think Flo has streaming problems and glitches try a Trackwrestling event. I've bought maybe three Track video events, one of them being last year's SB Duals and it was brutal, and unwatchable due to glitches,, dropouts and so on......... made typical Flo coverage look like a Sunday Nite football telecast.........
  17. No pins or tech falls for the three who have National Titles in their resume? Don't see that happening to Kutler, Wood has been seriously under the weather to start the season so maybe, but if getting healthy again I don't see that happening..... 165? Well that's another story, if Cenzo wrestles could be a problem for Lehigh, Meyer is a undersized 165, would be wrestling 157 if not for Humphrys in my opinion.....he's a gamer but Cenzo is a full sized monster talented 165, will be a tall task to ask Meyer to keep it to a normal decision......
  18. Going to be interesting to see who goes for both teams, I don't see PSU losing but will be more interesting than last year for sure (hard not to be).....

    Cornell

    Yeah, well I live in Buffalo area.....so I must be flat out a maple leaf......

    Cornell

    Cornell is 3 hours drive to the closest point in Canada (Fort Erie), and is 3 hours drive from the Penn State Campus......... the whole Canada thing is very strange.........but I guess you go with what you know in your rants (or don't know as the case may be)..........and I am not a Cornell fan (Lehigh grad).....
  21. So Plasmodium your argument has switched from OK State got a raw deal to concern about HIPAA rights? Not really sure they apply when your standing in a room with 20 some odd other wrestlers, coaches, media etc all within ear shot.......No one is giving any specific diagnosis, just guesses......you are clinging to this argument because that is all you have left, which is fine......but just so you know, it's an embarrassing look........

    FLO

    The worst argument there is in my opinion..... they own their product, you can choose to get it or not.......if they are not meeting your idea of what they should do then start your own product......we don't live in a socialist country (yet), wrestling fans don't "deserve" better.......if you think they are hurting wrestling then create a better product, don't whine about it on a forum....
  23. Spladle88

    FLO

    semantics and nit picking........it's their product........nothing fishy about it, unless you want to see it that way.......which is obviously your choice, but to get excited enough to fire up a topic every other day about it? Seems more like the usual boring Flo bashing, then a legitimate beef.........

    FLO

    all the people on here that love to question and complain about Flo, it's actually funny......no one is forcing you to get it, it's like any other choice you make.......cable tv, dish, hulu, netflix, join a gym, join a country club, go bowling, don't go bowling, go out to eat don't go out to eat, buy the new Call of Duty, or don't........your choice, if you like it and you want to do it then decide if you really want to and can afford to pay the price, if not move on.........but to constantly nitpick them, seems like a waste of energy....... but I guess all people get off on different things It's their product, they could literally charge $1,000 a month if they wanted (some might even still pay it lol).......we aren't socialist (yet).........supply and demand.........they obviously feel they can be successful at the price point they are at......
  25. I don’t think Hoffman goes down to 141.... so that means Karam either makes 141 or he is a man without a weight (barring injury).....Hoffman seems to have really upped his game since his victory this summer against Kolodzik from Princeton at U23’s.....he looked more powerful, more offensive and more solid than Karam..... Hoffman did what everyone will do to Karam, beat him in neutral and refuse to go under him......Maybe Karam needs some live wrestling coming off injury to get his legs under him.... we’ll see...
