    Force118 reacted to Peso in Lee Kemp   
    I believe I was ahead of Joe 4-1 at the end of the first period.  It was the 3-3-3 era, and it was before t-falls.  I think he beat me 21-4, but it wasn't that close.  I was 18 and had just finished my freshman year at OSU.  There was a brief time before I broke my neck, when I think I could have been a decent wrestler.  I never came close, but what an eye opener.  There seemed to be a lot of politics in the trials back then.  I remember seeing a previous Olympian put on his back and pinned about 10 x if it was folkstyle...never called it.  Joe had won the US Open that year and Lee was I believe entering his junior year.  A lot of you don't know how tough Schalles and Dziedzic were, but they passed the torch to Lee who passed the torch to Schultz who passed the torch to Kenny...

    A “Gene Mills” style half Nelson from the opponents base while working a spiral ride. Absolutely devastating technique, allowed me to rack up enough back points for big cushion, or just flat out end the match against a lot of guys that might’ve otherwise beaten me

    Holy crap, I'm a published author!  Somebody go bring me some peeled grapes!
    Basically, I just saw Flo start talking about how they were going to get creative with content, and I had been planning to do something like this just on the forums anyway, so I sent it to them and now here we are.

    Chael Sonnen or Pat Lugo would be the best.

    At least at my university, there is no insurance policy---even for bringing students home from Italy, China and other areas where the state department has declared a level 3 advisory. Most administrators claim that pandemic insurance does not exist.

    Good point, but many schools have policies for room and board refunds for medical withdrawals---without a pro-rated refund, I see lawsuits coming. This will also hurt retention and recruitment efforts at tuition driven colleges----all small private schools with wrestling programs will be hard hit by this.

    I think you are probably right. I also have no idea what kind of insurance schools carry to protect them from this sort of thing. I now it’s instances such as Grand View the wrestling program is a huge profit driver but so is their room and board.  They cram as many students into a room as possible to maximize $$$. At many other small schools the wrestling programs aren’t popular enough among students and will likely be the first to be cut if expenses mount.

    I don’t see any scenario where money is paid back to students. Perhaps, state funded schools on a trimester system where the third term hasn’t started yet. Most private NAIA schools do not operate at anywhere close to a profit and are already going to get hamstrung by the global recession; room and board is a major contributor to their balance books. Many would go bankrupt if they had to pay out in masse.

    Well this bolded part is just untrue.
    Are you trying to claim that his travel ban from two years ago was a proactive step?
    The testing from those corporations will be nice, but there's still no evidence it's happening yet.  Which of course is related to the fact that the administration didn't start doing anything until two days ago.
    Also you can't just "remove" a state to make yourself feel better about numbers.  It's still a part of this country, and it happens to be the epicenter for the disease making it's way here.  "If you remove Europe, the Black Plague didn't really kill that many people."
