I was at PT once and this female gymnast came in and her knee was scary to look at -loked like a water balloon was growing out of the side of her knee -they drained it and she was fine -Just watching the HUMONGOUS needle they use is the bad part -they use about a 22 gauge and a bulb syringe to catch all the water -then they test to see if it is infected .
also known as water on the knee it is quite common among wrestlers and gymnasts .
And YES Herk-I've had mine drained several times . As long as there exists no infection Luke should be OK.
STAPH infections are on the rise however -such as Iowa's 133 is experiencing -and these can turn DEADLY quickly -THAT is why mat maintenance is crucial-especially using anti fungals in the water mop water .It was the Staff infection that got Peyton -he lost 15 lbs and was sick as a dog .
I am not sure Mellmer HAS any "rough stuff" in having watched him wrestle for three years.
The nice part is that there is probably a REALLY solid chance a guy like Fetucci is going to have to wrestle Metcalf in the first round of the Big X tournament. Enough said.
The Purdue guys name is Bertucci and he is 20-10 and a decent wrestler -if disciplinary actions are called for Hinkle will not hesitate to boot him . They have little PTAX and he is ok-
Fetucci-Fetuccini, Bertucci...I agree. There will be consequences. This just makes Metcalf's legacy stronger. He's tough as hell.
