    Because people start by saying "I heard a rumor", then they drop the qualifier, then they act like it isn't a rumor, then they claim it is a cold hard immutable fact. Nothing anyone can do about it. Done. Dusted. It never ceased to amaze me how people love to run with this stuff.

    He's in the portal with no contact, so it's not comforting for you. But it's done and dusted. Hit rinse and repeat though and maybe next rumor will be false. Here, I will make it easy: Spencer Lee is in the portal. Lol

    Imagine if the NCAA Basketball tournament was decided by a series of round robin games where the total point differential of each team decided the winner of the tournament. That’s kind of like how NCAA wrestling scoring works.

    The dual format is exciting and simple. It’s obvious what team is winning and it often comes down to the last match or two. The tournament format is decided at 9 AM EDT on Saturday morning. 

    The best team should be decided by a dual. The best individuals, by a tournament. 

    Good idea. Penn State wins that too.

    Anyone think he could go to Oregon State with Nate Engel?  Has Isaiah Martinez there to train with. 

    Or he can train with tank, or Nick, or Zain, or Nolf, or Cenzo, or RBY, or Gilman, or....

    There is a lot of young talent there at 157 and 165 and in that room as workut partners and mentors.  I will be not be surprised if whomever emerges will be competitive in the B1G.

    Well...no. Edsel has topped out and he was an NQ.

    I agree Woods is a more proven contender.  But I think a bumped up RBY beats him.  Woods might be the favorite against Bartlett down at 141 as Bartlett up at 149 has been uneven.  But Bartlett at 141 may be far more competititve.  I don't think Bartlett is a freshman, although these labels are less clear in these unusual pandemic wresting times.  Bartlett has had a lot of time in the PSU room and may be ready to compete at the highest levels.  Or maybe not.

    If Woods comes to PSU, Bartlett redshirts. Period.

    Any PSU insiders know what the plan is for these two?  Joe was a starter last year and couldn't get in the line up this year.  I assume Matt redshirted this year?  Any chance these two get in the lineup next year?  Will they transfer?

    Joe might crack the lineup this year actually at 157. Cael will put Haines on the redshirt circuit and wait to see how he performs at the scuffle. Matt will wrestle off with Facundo and frankly don't count on an easy task there for Matt, but we will see and whoever is best will go.

    Taking Matt Lee over him is one of the worst takes I've ever seen on this site. 


    His losses were to Mekhi Lewis (NCAA champ), Wentzel X2 (NCAA finalist), Cameron Amine (All-American ), Peyton Hall (All-American), Bullard (4X NCAA qualifier), and Keating (2-2 at NCAA's). They were basically all close losses. You're out of your mind. 

    Correct. I'm as big of a psu fan there is, and I am saying right now Monday is the best 165 in the room if he comes...now SOMEDAY, when Facundo is ready, then yes. But that day ain't coming in 2022/23.

    So?  If he is going to Penn State he wont2best Facundo.

    Facundo will eat him alive  That is the worst kind if match fot Monday.

    In any case just because he said Penn State it doesn't mean Penn State needs or even wants him.  A 165lber who went 1-2 last out at NCAAs and 8-7 overall on his season?  They have several better options in the room right now.

    Facundo did not have the greatest redshirt season to be clear. Right now if they go, I think Monday is a slight favorite. Both Van Ness and Haines performed superior to Facundo. Most inside the PSU compound feel Facundo isn't actually ready yet.

    Hater? Lol. I literally said he was the one PSU wrestler I fully rooted for. His dad was a great guy to me.

    But, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t the most likely 1 seed to lose, nor does it mean he didn’t win two very controversial matches to get to the Finals. 

    To help you with things, saying something didn’t age well usually comes when the prediction was way off. Meaning Dean pinned his way to the Finals, or at least was never in any real danger of losing. When you have two reviews decide 2 different matches that type of argument doesn’t really work. 

    "I'm not a hater but I only root for one guy on an entire team".  Lmao.

    I get your technical perspective, but I was simply responding to a poster that has already stated he bleeds blue and white. His post was to blast anyone and everyone that even considered a PSU guy could lose and Dean was the one most picked to do so. 

    Except Dean didn't actually lose. At all. He won the national championship. Anything else, hater?

    I have no idea about how these guys are relative to eachother.  From what I have seen of Howard last year, he seems to be on the right path!  

    Betancourt is a career backup. Howard had 2 points as an ncaa qualifier 2 years ago before sitting out this past year after surgery.
