Looking for Actual News on Alton Situation

Recommended Posts

That other thread hasevolved into something totally different. I am hoping that as info on the Alton situation develops, it can be posted here (without a lot of debate and commentary). Might be a pipe dream. But here are some questions that come to mind:

 

1. How long are they suspended from competition? If still unknown, when is PSU likely to make a decision and announcement?

 

2. Is the discipline the same for all wrestlers involved? IF not, how does it differ?

 

3. Can they practice while suspended from competition?

 

4. Are they practicing now?

 

5. Besides English, who is likely to replace them in the lineup.

 

6. What is the disposition of the charges made against them? Have any been dropped/added? Have there been any plea bargains or court dates established?

 

7. Can someone post an actual police report of the incident?

 

8. Beyond the police report, does anyone have any credible (or at least semi-credible......OK, how about at least not posting pure conjecture) information beyond what is in the police report as to what really happened?

 

9. Any other relevant facts (not judgements) on the situation.

 

 

My interest is purely as a wrestling fan (PSU fan). I want to know how this incident will affect the team and on-mat action. I ask #8 only b/c it may give some insight on how things play out with the authorities and thus impact the discipline imposed by the school.

Small little detail in contrast with last season match notes.

 

Last season Match Notes

 

This season Match Notes

 

The difference is this quote:

"PLEASE NOTE THAT PSU’S FINAL LIST OF PARTICIPANTS FOR

THE SOUTHERN SCUFFLE HAS YET TO BE DETERMINED;

THIS LIST IS REGULAR DUAL STARTERS AND OTHER LIONS

WHO MAY MAKE TRIP"

 

Also noteworthy is the heavyweight selection lists Lawson "OR" Gingrich. I thought they would have sent them both but (IMO) it looks like there may be a final wrestle off to determine the spot prior to the Scuffle.

They might be sending both but the "or" might be in reference to who is their point scorer for the tournament which might be decided by a wrestle-off before they leave. Who knows?
