    Default Penn State Wrestle-offs

    Does anyone here have the real scoop on when PSU is holding their wrestle=off's I've read Thursday November the 5th, and in the same article, it mentions Sunday the 8th??? I surely hope that it's not on a Thursday...How are we supposed to travel up there from Central PA? My kid has school in the morning? Make it a Friday or weekend event and you'll have a larger turnout.

    ^^^The Penn State sched on the PSU athletic site shows Nov 5th. I assume that early Nov you will ck with a PSU wrestling office or insider to make shiest sure what the exact date and start time is.

    as far as I can remember they've held it on a Sunday, because it's more of a mini-tournament format, as opposed to one match per weight...

    The schedule says Nov 5 is an intrasquad match, not wrestle-offs. It could be Sanderson is not going to let a small number of bouts decide the line-up since he's still learning about the talent in the room.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    To try to solve the mystery, I contacted the SID at Penn State. Here's what he said:
    No wrestle offs at Penn State any more, those kind of battles take place in practice w/ the coaches. We will have a public Intra-Squad match on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m.

    Ideamark...I gave you some rep points...thank you. I wasn't sure who to contact and was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction. I didn't expect someone to do the legs work...but it's very much appreciated. If anyone here is heading up there on Thursday...I'll see you there!

    I feel like a kid at Christmas. What an exciting year this is going to be for PSU wrestling.
