  1. You know, up until this week, I've tried refraining from posting USAW front page stuff here because I thought they'd be obvious -- but as we saw in the Humphrey thread, I guess not, lol.
  2. USA Wrestling usually posts D1 results ~weekly around this time. For now, here’s a running list of intramural dates: https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2021/October/21/Division-I-Intrasquad-Schedule hoping to see more wrestle-offs streamed this year, now that folks are more accustomed to virtual events.
  3. Y'all should bring this up to the new Comms person at USA Wrestling. They hired UNC's previous Comms person -- seems pretty solid & new-school; should know a lot about search engine optimization and the like.
  4. Man, I just looked up what’s going on after reading that and seeing all the problems. That’s a damn shame. I know a lot of people that went there forever ago, and I love to see the vibrance in the photos & videos. Chicago State recently had a strong 180 after nearly closing and the athletics are recovering. Hopefully other PBI’s and HBCU’s can do the same!
  5. Cheyney, the country's first HBCU, is right outside of Philly. Imagine if Burroughs started coaching there after he was done competing at Penn with a couple PTRC athletes helping coach while they train in the city. the BTS Philly -> Cheyney pipeline would be nuts.
  6. Exactly — I agree completely. On a macro level, my thinking is that Flo taking a loss on offering a similar product for WFS & GR would lead to better resources and more exposure, which would lead to more interest, leading to a better team. A better product, even — what would it mean for Flo to go out of their way to collect technique from world class Greco coaches overseas and offer the technique videos for free to wrestlers & coaches? Or for them to pay their female wrestlers more to show up for their fight cards? What kind of shift happens when the biggest media outlet in our sport is forcing the shift? again — a pipe dream. Antithetical to FloSports, a company. But feels better to dream than to shrug it off and wait for incremental change.
  7. And it feels like we’ve been talking about where this dude is gonna go for decades. Now it all makes sense!
  8. Have we ruled out the possibility that Nick would want to dabble in astrophysics or planetary sciences??
  9. Did you know that the first person to discover planets outside of our solar system teaches 200-level astronomy at Penn State??
  10. If this is the case, I’d love to hear it from Flo themselves. Something I’ve had to parse out in my head is Flo’s juxtaposition as a media production business with wrestling as a single vertical, and also as the primary tool for the advancement of Olympic wrestling fandom & involvement in the United States. Part of me wants to be mad that they’re not investing in WFS and GR more, because that becomes a self-fulfilling cycle of less interest and thus less revenue or attention. But part of me is trying to accept that wrestling is already a niche sport and that I should be happy that they’re even leaving the computers running for the stream.
  11. Love seeing & hearing the crowd for Greco. Much more animated. So many more languages besides English. Just seems like better wrestling, if but a little less marketable with how technical it can get. After a first round loss to a Moldovan that got teched the next round, I don’t have much hope for the USA team. But I’m still watching. Really wish we had more Greco-knowledgeable folks on the forum, or at USA Wrestling in general. The coverage dropped off so much after MFS was done.
  12. It looks like Franklin Gomez of Puerto Rico isn’t competing, either. Shame. He’s really fun to watch.
  13. I’m willing to buy a University of Northwestern season ticket after this. They really do the most with the least in the B1G — Jimmy Kennedy’s a huge loss. Hoping Andrew Howe has some security at the job, too. Can only imagine how stressful it’s been. Iunno how y’all are okay with cutting 16 pounds every week and surviving off rice cakes and salted slices of tomato for a whole winter, but wanna be nutritionists and healthcare professionals all of a sudden. Shut up, y’all gotta keep the dumpster fire threads on the International subforum. Ffs.
  14. Washington Post has a great profile piece on Spencer Myers doing both football and wrestling his senior year: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/spencer-myers-two-sports-17-hours-10000-calories-with-a-maryland-student-athlete/2014/09/30/3b8a3cf8-431d-11e4-b47c-f5889e061e5f_story.html It made me wanna take the big jump from 2 eggs to 3. Very inspiring.
