    Now that is good!! Can't remember if any PSU fans said that about Iowa and the National Duals last year or not. But if so, this has great potential for a thread to get me through the summer. WHERE ARE YOU HERKEY? JUMP ON THIS!!

    I talked to PSU SID PAT D & I asked him what the deal was. He said that since the B1G TEN changed the schedule & the Southern Scuffle moved to a week later that they would not be able to do BOTH. They wanted to. Originally the B10 scheduled PSU-Minnesota for the week of the Scuffle but PSU got Minny to change it. Otherwise they wouldn't even been able to wrestle there. They also wanted to keep all of the rivalries (Lehigh, Pitt, Bloom & WVU) as well as make a trip out West.

    He says "Just for fun"

    We all know how that went for Jack Jensen.

    PS who cuts 20 pounds for fun? Why doesn't he just say he's out to win and wants a world championship? Or is he just going to knock people out and then decide to not go which I'm guessing would automatically give the spot to Herbert?(or how does that work?)

    InterMat - Report: Sanderson to wrestle at Trials

    If this is for fun, what does he do when he is serious?

    Article on former PSU wrestler Dave Adams is the Reader - Goshen News, Goshen, IN

    DUNLAP ? Dave and Barbara Adams, who live in Concord Township, met in high school in Bellfont, Pa., and married while in college.

    Barbara dropped out of nursing school and Dave earned a degree from Penn State, then a master?s before starting his teaching and coaching career at Boiling Springs, Pa., near Harrisburg. He taught junior high science and helped coach wrestling and football.

    Dave had played football, basketball and wrestled in high school and concentrated on wrestling at Penn State. He explained that when he was in the sixth grade and his school was starting a wrestling program, he hitchhiked six miles to the high school two nights a week to learn to wrestle.

    ?We had lessons on Tuesdays and Thursday. That?s how I got involved,? Dave said.

    After a year of teaching at Boiling Springs, he returned to Penn State to teach physical education and coach wrestling. He stayed there for five years before leaving to teach at the Naval Academy, where he taught and also coached baseball and wrestling.

    Dave said that after three years at the Naval Academy, he moved to the University of Pittsburgh, serving as head wrestling coach and was involved in the athletic administration. He worked as assistant to the athletic director and then was assistant AD for a time.

    ?We were there 13 years altogether,? he said.

    The family then moved to the West Coast, where Dave served as athletic director at San Jose State for five years.

    His last stop in the sports world was a return to the Midwest, when he moved to the University of Akron, serving as athletic director and then as assistant to the vice president of administrative services.

    Dave served in leadership roles in the NCAA with wrestling programs for more than 30 years.

    He was with the rules committee for many years and ran the head table at wrestling championships for 36 years.

    ?It was fun,? he said. He was inducted into the NCAA wrestling hall of fame, as well as the Pennsylvania hall of fame.

    After his ?first? retirement, he worked to develop a program to sell ?temporary tattoos? involving college and high school logos and mascots. The company gave them away to cheerleaders as a promotion.

    ?I had a blast doing it? for about seven years, working with colleges across the country, he said.

    He said the firm, Team Dynamics, is the top company working in that industry.

    Dave and Barbara raised two daughters and a son. Malinda lives in Meadville, Pa., David is at Holly Springs, N.C., and Lisa Richline is a Concord Junior High teacher, living about one block from her parents. They have seven grandchildren, whom they enjoy spoiling, he said.

    After David and Barbara retired for the third time, they moved to Indiana about two and one-half years ago, settling in the subdivision where Lisa and her husband, Wayne, raised their family.

    ?We felt we needed to be closer to our children,? Dave said.

    The former wrestling coach lives next door to Concord basketball coach Steve Austin and retired teacher and coach Eric Free ? who lived two doors away ? wasted no time introducing Dave to golf at Bent Oak Golf Club.

    The Adams enjoy all sports, and attend swim meets in which their grandson Michael competes, and were set to enjoy his graduation from Concord High School last week.

    The couple attends nearby Faith United Methodist Church, where they enjoy the minister and the church activities.

    Besides playing golf, Dave stays busy caring for a good-sized subdivision yard, which the Adams have landscaped by adding trees and flowers.

    ?Barbara used to work in a flower shop for quite a while,? Dave said, and they enjoy their plantings.

    Besides the Concord graduation ceremonies, the family planned to enjoy the wedding of a granddaughter in Pennsylvania in July and will travel to North Carolina to visit their son, too.
