    Hey Now reacted to Fletcher in Willie's Earth Shattering News   
    Bold prediction. 
    If I'm hiring a future doctor, lawyer, financial advisor, however, I'll take the Northwestern grad. over the OSU national champ. No one wants to hear that A.J. Ferrari will be performing their open heart surgery.

    Northwestern only lets in smart kids. We can't surround them with idiots for coaches.

    Hey Now got a reaction from Bigboi Trained in Darrah to Stanford?   
    Intermat has reported Jack Darrah (197 out of Missouri), formerly a Cornell commit, now committed to Stanford.  Would this be the first Stanford recruit of the Koll era?  And, consequently, the first Stanford recruit in over 18 months?

    Hey Now reacted to Billyhoyle in I really enjoyed the Cornell era   
    I'm glad to see that Yianni isn't transferring. It would be cool if enough guys stay at Cornell for the program to not have too much of a drop.  I doubt Koll agreed to the job without some expectation that Stanford would move a bit on their admission standards though..Unless he really was desperate to get out of Ithaca.  It will be almost impossible to build the program without it, and I doubt they brought him in to keep doing things as they have for the past decade.

    Hey Now reacted to Drew87 in Super Shane Griffith on Saving Stanford Wrestling   
    I hope he stays.  He’s a thoughtful guy, very eloquent, has his own personality and is already a hell of a wrestler.  I love watching Penn State wrestlers, but they all turn into Cael God zombies the same way Iowa guys all start parroting the gable/brands grind-grind-grind mottos.  
    Wrestling needs more thoughtful speakers and thinkers, and Shane’s story is one for the ages already.

    Hey Now reacted to Drew87 in Stanford Not Cutting Sports   
    This is a huge deal, and while it is brutal what has happened to this program and the athletes...
    1) Program is still around, big win
    2) These athletes have been through a lot, but have been standup individuals and hopefully will find this valuable in the future
    3) This does not kill or stop the lawsuit, and I would venture that there was enough misconduct on the part of the athletic department and administration that there are real legal grievances here.

    Agreed on all fronts.  The year the Stanford program just went through....especially with the way that athletic director treated them, even it is saved....could you enthusiastically go back and represent the school that did that to you?  The timing hurts, but you can't blame Borelli.  He has a lot of years left and young mouths to feed.

    I can't wrap my head around someone wanting to go to Stanford, and then in the same lifetime that person wanting to go to Arizona State.

    People who are not "at risk" and going about their days are still spreading it to people who are at risk, since the most at risk and those less so live with each other. The reason lockdowns don't work *here* is that we also don't have the political will to have the government pay the (considerable!) cost of what is basically an economic shutdown of nonessential businesses. And mask compliance is *very* regionally variable. Cases aren't spiking in the Dakotas and Staten Island because their public transit is simply too crowded.
    I've stopped blaming individuals for having terrible personal priorities, though, because the messaging from government (not only Trump, government at all levels, in states Red and Blue) is so schizophrenic and mercurial that I can't judge people for throwing up their hands and deciding that none of it makes enough sense to make individual sacrifices. Here in NYC, Cuomo and DiBlasio have been incredibly erratic about how they shift from extreme seriousness to fiddling with the closing time at bars. This is why, to be honest, I would like a broad based lockdown order from the Federal government that comes with financial support. It would at least be a clear message with a clearly stated purpose. There would no longer be a reason to connect it to the election and the words matching the actions would be useful in convincing people that the government and scientific community are in sync.
    All of this is to say... I don't care about whether there is wrestling in 2021 even though I really, really wish there was wrestling.

    You honestly believe we're going to have a vaccine and give it to other countries before we give it to Americans?
    What he actually said was that we shouldn't hoard the vaccine and that after we have achieved herd immunity it would benefit us to make it available to other countries to control its spread there. Covid is a global problem and letting it run rampant around the world will surely bring it to our shores again. We need to beat it everywhere.
    But that doesn't fit the alt-right talking points. So by all means keep spreading lies.

    Hey Now reacted to CoachJSS in NCAA D I Wrestling in a dire place   
    Men's volleyball at the D I and D II level are small, which is why they combine for a national tournament. However, D III has their own NCAA Championship because they have 111 schools that sponsor the sport. That's a decent amount, much like D III wrestling. Men's  gymnastics hasn't been relevant in years.
    The one thing that wrestling has that those 2 sports don't have is big participation numbers at the high school level. Almost 250k boys wrestle which is far ahead of boys volleyball.

    Good post.  I hope your enthusiasm pans out.  I know that your optimism has made mens volleyball and gymnastics fans hopeful.  Volleyball down to just over 20 programs and men's gymnastics has only TEN division 1 programs left.  Sheesh.
