Is Fix redshirting?

Recommended Posts

I feel like Hall and Grajales got it the worst on the college board. Don't remember Stieber getting too much crap. Pico for the HS board... when people actually posted.

 

Aaron Pico got it the worst.  Hands down!!!  There's close to a thousand posts from "retiredposter" on Aaron Pico's age....lol

Yeah, but Grajales didn't get crap for being older than everybody else, he got crap for being one of the worst gassers anybody has ever seen. Was happy to see him finally crack through and AA his Sr year.

This is a college forum. Pico thought he was too good for college (hint: he wasn't) and took the "easy" route. Hasn't worked out well for him, either. He's been an embarrassment in MMA (after all the hype) and his wrestling career essentially went down the tubes. Of course he's going to get crapped on in a college wrestling forum. If he'd been successful, like Cejudo, I'm sure people would've been a lot more forgiving (yeah, college wrestling fans feel like that was a big "loss", Cejudo not wrestling college...but Olympic Gold washes a lot of those feelings away). .

Same place it was for Logan Steiber...nonexistent :D

Stieber got it, trust me.  He just didn't get it that much because, again,  it wasn't a bigger topic since he won in such a controversial fashion. That took center stage.  Plus, getting injured and having his true freshman year erased changed things as well.

 

 

As far as Grajales goes, he wasn't successful enough early on for it to be a major topic.  The reason age gets discussed is usually because someone says, "Wow, this true freshman did something amazing!"  and then someone else says, "Is he really a true freshman?  The guy is at least a year older than a freshman should be!"  

 

Without the 1st part, the 2nd part really doesn't come about!

Maybe it was on the HS board that Grajales got killed for it Edited by LemonPie

Ah yes that guy.    Very bizarre.  He didn't even want people talking about Pico since he had never won anything of significance.       Pico goes out and reaches an Olympic trials final and destroys numerous NCAA champs and Hodge winners in the process.    Wasn't good enough for that guy.    I've always suspected it had to do with how his career ended.

That and 3 time UFC heavyweight champion.       He more than lived up to the hype.  

 

Oh, I'd absolutely agree on Lesnar. He was champ until Cain took him out. Anybody who makes champ is a success in my book, but I'm hardly an MMA expert. I just like how well wrestlers do in it, gives me a little **** talk room at work :D
