And look at who he had to beat to get to Joseph. I think he had Joseph on his back for the count. 

Yup, he beat the bull and wick to reach the finals. That cradle on Joseph had the whole arena pumped, except for psu fans. I like Joseph by the way. Nothing but respect for the guy, just a VT fan gloating at our only natty champ.

Being a jersey guy I had followed Mehki for a couple years already before he got to V tech and the fact that he went from barely beating Kyle Cochran in the state finals his sr year to knocking off The Bull, Wick and Cenzo in a row as a redshirt freshman shows how great of a job the coaching staff did down in Blacksburg , I mean he jumped several levels in less than 2 years and only one of them as a starter , absolutely wild run

1993, 134 lbs.  Jaworsky over Kolat.  I think most people thought Kolat would never lose a match.  He ran out of gas.  Jaworsky was 3x NCAA champ though.

He already had 4 previous losses that year…

Going back to watch Banach and McIlravy I can understand the criticism of “Iowa Style” vs “Gable Style”. Those guys were constantly moving opponents and taking ground, but using a variety of techniques to score takedowns. 
 

To be fair though, few guys are as aggressive as those guys. Probably why some of the recent Penn State legends have been so popular because they were the closest to wrestling like that.

OH.....I'm fully aware of the sport.....42 NCAA Championships,  36 in a row, around 30 Big Ten Championships,  and that's just a small segment of the resume.  This is good stuff!!

I thought he transferred because of the sanctions Oklahoma State was looking at. 

I think the sanctions were over when he left, but I could be wrong.

One of the Purlers did transfer because of the sanctions.

McIlravy, if I remember correctly, was pulled out of redshirt late his freshman year maybe right before the Big Ten Championship.  He came from behind to beat Abas 16-15 just about on the buzzer....doesn't get much better than thatl

Both Abas brothers had that awesome snapdown....
