Tonight's match and Dominos?  Lol.  I'm sure after the last couple days, nothing anybody says bothers you at all.

I am here to have a good time. You are right, I don't get bothered by internet personas.

That's pretty cool but it's kind of misleading. It’s not counting all of the semifinal matches where they just were not present.
*edit* I.E. They lost in prior rounds or failed to qualify the weight.

Random thoughts on a TERRIFIC NIGHT OF WRESTLING.

1. Glory to Glory who almost got teched the other week.  He and Vito always always let it fly and they got the night off to a great start.

2. My heart was broken for DeSanto.  He always leaves it all out on the mat.  He grew a ton at Iowa as a wrestler and even as a sportsman.  Hope he can get back for third tomorrow.

3. I want a lawyer, accountant, doctor, and FBI agent to be at the weigh in tomorrow and certify that Deakin actually weighs 157 pounds.  

4. SUPER SHANE!!!  A true ambassador for college wrestling.  And great props to Wick for not ducking him during the year; I was sure that he would skip out on the dual so as not to give Griffith three looks at him before NCAAs.  I think that's the real reason he transferred out of the Big Ten, since such behavior would never have been tolerated there.  Yes, I know, the reward for his sportsmanship was a one way ticket to the back side.

5. Watching Lewis's emotions tonight was a priceless bookend to the excruciating experience of watching him gut out 7 minutes in that match last year.  I was so overcome by seeing the pin and the tears that I didn't even have time to enjoy the schadenfreude of watching Massa go from a winning takedown to getting stuck in the blink of an eye (well, there, I just did).

6. Amine's Class Act Tour continues.  World War III between him and Brooks tomorrow.

7. Is it Jacob Warner's fault that in a folkstyle match you just total up the points at the end regardless of where they came from?  What's so bad about one out of 20 finalists relying solely on mat wrestling, which the rules have as the starting point for two out of three periods?

8. Impressed by Steveson's maturity.  Not an easy spot for him with all the publicity and expectations and his job already lined up.  He's not sharp, his opponents aren't screwing around, and he's just taking care of business with smart wrestling.  He'll need that attitude again tomorrow, Schultz earned that seed after all, didn't he?  

9.  Penn State wrestling.  What else can be said at this point.  Does SHP or someone have the stats on their semis record since wrestling was invented?  EDIT:  It was posted above as I wrote this tome, thanks.  45-5?  That defies logic.  But it sounds right.

Technically, you don't start on the mat 2 of 3 periods, wrestlers chose where they start and most choose bottom to get an escape point.  An opponent could pick neutral against Warner, and there would only be one period where wrestling would start on the ground.

Damn, no poetic license allowed even on a wrestling board. Although I could see your point that Jacob Warner does not inspire poetry.

Hahahaha.  I can't believe I've defended Jacob Warner on this board multiple times today.  I thought this day would never come.

That is one of the most idiotic posts I've seen for some time. The point is, that of the wrestlers that MADE THE SEMI's, since 2016, Penn State wrestlers are now 29-2 in semi-final bouts. That translates to 29 finalists in 6 years. That's about 5 finalists/year. OF course, that doesn't count those that lost in prior rounds or failed to qualify. Whatever the hell that's supposed to mean. 

For one team to have 5 finalists in one year is an amazing feat. Except that Penn State AVERAGES 5 finalist per year.

That's an insane stat. Incredible, really. They always seem to peak in March. 

 

Off the top of my head, the 5 losses are:

1 - Kerk to Gable (2022)

2 - Nick Lee to McKenna (2019?)

3 - Retherford to Stieber (2014)

4 - Megaludis to Garrett (forgot the year)

5 - I'm blanking. Maybe Ruth to Amuchastegui? Or McIntosh in the year he took 3rd? 

 

DT, Nolf, and Nickal were perfect in the semis. Starroci and Brooks have been too.

You must have Jimmy Cinnabon muted.

It's Gullibon losing to Cory Clark. And I think its been corrected to 45-6.  Adrew Long lost to Hochstrasser

Cox beat him in the finals during McIntosh's senior year. Looks like McIntosh never lost in the semis.

 

McIntosh lost in the quarters and beat J'den in the wrestlebacks J'dens sophomore year.  McIntosh took 3rd, J'den took 5th.
