  1. My core thought is that's gross for you to think an unpaid 20 year old athlete making a pragmatic financial decision for his future is gross.
  2. This is a "free year" in terms of eligibility. It doesn't count against your 4 years. There is no point to redshirt anyone.
  3. Dude you realize none of this is coming from like anti-jesus.com, right? These are literally the findings of an academic university conducted by Canadian researchers. Also, I really hope you can see the irony you hitting someone with "do you believe everything you read???" when you are seemingly part of a religious group who lives their life based on the teachings of a book that says a lady got turned into a pillar of salt, dude lived inside a whale's stomach, people lived 500 years, a guy came back from the dead, etc, with nothing in the way of evidence. I was raised in a devout Catholic family and it took me until I was an adult graduated from college to figure this **** out. You still have time, too. Use your brain, please.
  4. In hindsight, perhaps Derek White being called "The Cowboy Bulk Job" should have been a bit of a giveaway, lol.
  5. He was originally a Cornell commit. Then after a season at FLWC, he sent out a tweet saying he had a good experience but was now looking for a new school and ended up picking Oregon state. I imagine he saw that he was going to struggle to get into the lineup at Cornell anytime soon.
  6. Dude. This is in****ingcomprehensible.
  7. You seem to be the one who is having a hard time understanding, actually, dman. Letting others "do their thing" is problematic when a large portion of the population doesn't have the option to work virtually and needs to be on-site to provide for themselves their families. They should be able to go to their jobs and earn money for their family with some level of protection from the virus. When you give the public free reign to "do their thing" working class people now have to show up to their jobs with a far greater risk of contracting the virus and potentially spreading it to their family/friends. Get it?
  8. I mean, I don't think Sammy will fare particularly well against arujau, but to say he's just a "qualifier" when his only NCAA tournament was cancelled seems a tad disingenuous. Kid was the #10 seed last year and beat the #4 seed en route to a southern scuffle title.
  9. I think maybe he's suggesting he was "hacked" when Flo or whoever wrote that apology on his behalf? Which is obviously a misuse of the word hacked, but I think it's what he's getting at.
  10. Hoffman was listed as an OSU transfer but I don't think that was ever actually official. He ended up transferring to Indiana which makes a lot more sense for him.
  11. Do we know if he could be a grad transfer, perhaps? He's been at UNC for 4 years.
  12. No one's saying they don't have a claim to the flag, bro. He's saying the don't have an EXCLUSIVE claim to the flag. What about the people who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11 or their families. Those people went to work just like any other day and many didn't come home because they were attacked from enemies who oppose freedom and the other principles America is founded. You're saying their surviving family have zero claim to the flag?
  13. lol. that guy who you claim has "been a millionaire since he was a child" was born to a single, 16 year old mother with no father figure in his life and spent his early years hopping from apartment to apartment in rough parts of Akron while his mother attempted to find work.
  14. Well said. If you still stand behind Trump at this point, there is virtually nothing he can do that's going to change that.
  15. ****ing horrifying. And upon further reading, the Temple student he assaulted and seriously injured was initially charged before video emerged of the incident.
  16. so the "mob" isn't entitled to an opinion? the "mob" you speak of is just a bunch of people who are expressing their personal opinion, kinda like Don Beshada did.
  17. Dude, 57 cops in buffalo resigned from their positions in solidarity with 2 officers who assaulted a 75 year old man then unflinchingly walked by his body as he laid on the ground with blood pouring from his ear. There's degrees to this. Yeah, derek chauvin is a monster, and most cops aren't THAT bad in comparison. But the problem is that cops protect other cops, even the derek chauvin's of the world. The "1% bad cops" argument is bull****. Just because a cop doesn't commit an act directly, doesn't mean he's not complicit. They all have the opportunity to weed out the bad apples, and time and time again they choose to prioritize the livelihood of their "brothers in blue" over the safety of the citizens they're sworn to protect.
  18. The first amendment exists to prevent the government from jailing people who speak out. It is not a free pass to say whatever you want with impunity and no risk of personal or professional ramifications. He exercised his right to expressed his opinion, and now he is facing the consequences, none of which are legal in nature.
  19. The initial post literally referred to them as "a small wrestling only business" and went on to say "they will eventually have to close down there factory and lay off a bunch of low to middle wage people which will undoubtedly include plenty of black and Hispanic workers" You see how those two things directly contradict each other, right? Small wrestling only businesses don't have the resources or production volume to gainfully employee a "bunch of low to middle wage people." They don't have some army of factory workers. The thought that this is going to cost a "bunch" of blue collar factory workers their livelihood is laughably absurd.
  20. Lol... dude, PLEASE tell me you don't think scraplife has their own independent merchandise factory employing a bunch of middle class workers. Any potentially good points you might have made were immediately worthless once prefaced by that idiotic comment.
  21. Eh, even if logan is up at 184, which is super unlikely, I still think they'd score more NCAA points just keeping Storr/Lewan/Cam at 149/157/165 and then just going with whoever wins the spot at 174. All of 3 of those guys are AA candidates at their projected weights, and I don't think any of them would be in the AA hunt if they moved up. Maybe the bump would make them a slightly better dual team, but with this much talent their focus to needs to be scoring tournament points in March.
  22. A lot of these guys are just flatly too small for the weights your suggesting. Neither Kanen or Ben Freeman have nearly enough size to wrestle 157, and the same applies to Cam Amine or Lewan wrestling 174.
  23. I was kinda thinking the opposite, to be honest. With the future of college wrestling potentially in jeopardy due to the financial ramifications of covid, particularly for mid-majors, I was thinking there would be far less redshirts this year and everyone would want to compete while they can.
  24. Don’t forget about Greg D/Josh Saunders for Cornell. No guarantee they greyshirt. Especially Saunders.
  25. I've had a Twitter for over 10 years, personally. NBD.
