  1. Aren’t MRS guys usually grad students, though? So their scholarship would be more pricey than an undergrad? Just something I’ve been wondering about I don’t have any answers
  2. Agree on Ke-Shawn easily getting a MRS based on the criteria that's been used in recent years, but I'm curious to see if they become stricter about handing out extra years in the wake of the covid-19 financial hardship. Extra yeas on scholarship costs money, wouldn't shock me if it becomes a far stingier system or really even if medical redshirts were eliminated altogether.
  3. https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/29017965/wisconsin-bring-back-seniors-spring-sports-next-year Did anyone see this? Very scary to see a school like Wisconsin making a decision like that...
  4. "Nick Zeller-Singh is a student at Arizona State studying Sports Journalism. In addition to writing for FloWrestling, he appears on his college radio station, does play-by-play, and covers a variety of sports as a beat writer. Follow him on Twitter." It looks like this is an article they "outsourced" to an ASU journalism student. Nothing against him specifically and I wish him the best with his career, but I think in their race to compile content their standards have slipped a touch from what they once were. That said they also seem to outsource a lot OK State stuff to Seth Duckworth, and he crushes it. Just seems like the type of omission that somebody would have caught and corrected a few years ago.
  5. Maybe they are. But they did a paragraph write up for every weight class and discussed backup options at some weights, so it's hard to imagine a kid who won the southern scuffle wouldn't even get a mention.
  6. I saw that Flo did a lineup preview for Stanford next year and there was zero mention of Abas whatsoever. Does anyone know if he's leaving Stanford? Or just a glaring omission by Flo?
  7. I largely agree with what you're saying about blue chips, but worth pointing out the "being stuck" aspect can be somewhat mitigated with the gap year at the prep academys. I remember Conor Youtsey committed to Army and did a year at their prep academy then changed his mind and committed to Umich. So it's a double edged sword, but you can essentially offer a kids a "trial year" with no loss of eligibility if they are on the fence. Also, it didn't really work out, but Quentin Hovis was pretty blue chip when made his commitment to Navy.
  8. Does anybody know why he didn't compete this season? I believe he was listed on the Illinois roster. Kid made the big ten finals/r12 as a freshman then was r16 as a sophomore. Illinois was pretty solid at every weight outside of 149 this year, feel like with him they could've been a really tough dual meet team. Hoping his career isn't over.
  9. Is Dominick Mandarino still around? I remember him being really solid for them at 157 2 years ago and splitting starts with Paul Fox?
  10. I'd probably have him right at #6 for now since it's a new weight class and he beat Suriano down at 57kg and we still have to see how he fares as a 133lbr, but could easily see him ending up in the top 3.
  11. Didn't miss him. Like I said, 197 is a total crap shoot. Could easily see Eric Schultz being a title contender next year, or not placing at all. Beard and Geer also fit that category for me. If i'm throwing a prediction out there just for fun, i'd have the placers looking something like this 1st: Darmstadt 2nd: Adams 3rd: Sloan 4th: Brucki 5th: Warner 6th: Beard 7th: Schultz 8th: Geer Could definitely see Norfleet placing if he doesn't go back to 184, too. And as I mentioned Amos will definitely be a factor if he doesn't redshirt. Jay Aiello and Lucas Davison are also really good. Sure I'm forgetting some others. Like I said, total crapshoot of a weight imo.
  12. I'm bored, so you're getting my top 5 125: Lee, Glory, Foley, Schroder, Latona (assuming vito moves up, otherwise he'd obviously be here) 133: Suriano, Fix, Micic, Seabass, RBY (hoping that rumors of suriano being done at rutgers are false) 141: Lee, Eierman, Woods, Parker, Red 149: Yianni, Sasso, O'Connor, Mauller, Lewallen 157: Deakin, Hidlay, Carr, Teemer, Monday (outside of teemer i could definitely see any of the other guys moving up) 165: Marinelli, Kharchla, Griffith, Wick, Wittlake 174: Kemerer, Mekhi, Labriola, Massa, Romero 184: Amine, Brooks, Dean, Bolen, Hidlay 197: Adams, Darmstadt, Brucki, Warner, Sloan (major crapshoot here, definitely could Amos being a factor if Wisconsin decides against a redshirt) 285: Gable, Parris, Kerkvliet, Cassioppi, Schultz
  13. You guys realize we're doing this in the hopes of avoiding something terrible happening here, not to combat something that is already terrible, right?
  14. At what point are people gonna realize the numbers are rapidly and drastically changing?
  15. Congrats bro! Takes a very big man to prioritize his own needs over the health of immunocomprised!
