What is going to happen to him?  Everyone seems to project Max Dean wins the 197 starting job, but Beard was a primo recruit and was an All-American in his first season starting.

Why is everyone assuming he'll lose the spot to Dean when he's also very talented and a full-sized 197er as compared to Dean who is moving up from 184.

If Dean wins the spot does Beard transfer?  He is too good not to be starting somewhere.  Perhaps Ohio State?

When do you pay your wager again?

Karma for bailing on his commitment to Northwestern. Same reason you'll never see Rivera or Micic win a national title.

The bells toll for thee, Carter Young.....

Except, word is that he’s getting the better of Dean.

Yes, there was some insider information circulating recently that Beard was getting the better of Dean in the PSU room.

Heard it repeated, I think, on FLO.  Don't know if true.  Can anyone confirm?

As we saw with Amine, its is not easy for 184 lbers, even the top ones, to compete with a smaller frame against the better wrestlers at 197.  Of course, Dean is cagy and maybe he is saving some tricks for any wrestle-off?   Does Cael even use wrestle-offs?

Isn't just about everyday on these here boards a Cinnabon pastry recursion?  ;_;

Wasn't Dean's transfer initially driven by Cornell's covid vaccine mandate for students? Does PSU not have a vax mandate for students? Not trying to start a discussion of "should they or shouldn't they" - just would be surprised if PSU doesn't have a student vax mandate.

PSU does not have a vaccine mandate for students.  They do have one for faculty and staff (*cough*Cael*cough*).  I think a number of B1G schools don't have one; it may be driven more by state politics (e.g., Rutgers and Michigan have one, PSU, Iowa,  and Wisconsin do not).

Gabe Dean seems to have said as much wrt Cornell's policies (including staff like him being required to actually support and implement their policies); Max, not so vocal.

Maybe Max couldn't hold 184 any more, and he couldn't beat Darmstadt at 197, so...  :-)

Maybe - has competed in freestle at 86kg (189.6 lbs) so well under 197 and not far from halfway between 197 and 184.   Of course, it could be he could not hold either spot at Cornell because he couldn't beat Foca or Darmstadt.

Or Cardenas.  However, I think the plan is for Foca to be at 174 this year.  In their teaser FB posts, many guys are shown at two weights (Yianni, Hatcher, Mayes, etc.), but Foca is only seen at 174.  Berreyesa and Loew at 184.

Joking aside, I think the Deans just couldn't abide the vaccine/mask/social distancing mandates at Cornell.
