I love this question, make me realize I'm getting older, although not as long in the tooth as Gimp. 

 

This will be my 17th in a row for D1.

Wow! How has the experience and the tourney environment changed (or not) over the years?

In 2003, once the finals were over, we went to a restaurant and then watched them on ESPN2.

Not as many as I would have liked to. After coaching my high school team for 20 years, I didn’t feel it right to bolt on my family. Been to 7.

My first was at u of Maryland. We (isu) ended the “X”. It was our 8th team title. Iowa was runner up. PSU was third. John smith was OW. 1987

My last was in 2000 at St. Louis. We (isu) had 4 in the finals but we lost every head to head matchup with a strong Hawk team (every match up in every session). That same year I began posting on mat dot com and have now posted 18 consecutive years but have not attended a NCAA division 1 wrestling championship since.

You guys are like reel friends to me.

20 (two as a competitor 18 as a fan), first one in ‘72...walked in and immediately saw defending champ Fujita (OSU) throw his headgear across the field house as far as he could (with his good arm) after dislocating his shoulder and defaulting out of the first round.

My streak of 22 years ends this year.  Will be cruising in SE Asia including Vietnam.  Will start a new streak in Pittsburgh next year.  Originally from the BURG.  Have a great time in Cleveland.  Will be watching on TV.
