ILLINOIS vs MINNESOTA

Recommended Posts

Nelson, Steinhause, 141 Dardanes, Zilverberg all dominated their match. Storley had a close match but won, Schiller wrestled a good match and won a close match. Yohn wrestles to the end and stayed in the match to the end a little short but good effort. Thorn 125 lost but again stayed in the match until the end. I think the all Americans Dardans and Ness will come ready on Saturday. Looking though Maroon and gold glasses it should be a good dual.

The Smiths and Kenny Monday are from Oklahoma, not the "south". The Schultzes and Varner were from California...not the South.

Weren't the Carrs from Kentucky? What about Ricky Delagatta?

The Carrs were originally from PA I believe and then Fletcher Carr one of the older brothers became a head coach at the University of Kentucky where Joe Carr Sr. wrestled. Joe Carr Jr. wrestled in Kentucky was a 5 time state finalist and 4 time champ before going to WVU.

Speaking of Southern wrestling back when . . . didn't I hear somewhere that NFL Hall of Fame OL John Hannah was an SEC Champ and NCAA qualifier.

 

My favorite quote about him from his pro days was: "John Hannah pulling looks like 5 guys struggling in a sack."
