Thread: Bubba will be 157

  1. #1

    Default Bubba will be 157

    And he apparently He's really going to miss Cael(sarcasm alert)

    Some pretty harsh comments and it reveals he'll be at 157.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    If he does, in fact, turn out to be at 157 lbs (which makes zero sense to me considering the fact that he wrestled in freestyle this summer at 145.5 lbs.) then the question becomes who will be at 141 and 149 lbs for ASU next season. With the departures of both of last season's starters at 141 and 149 lbs that becomes interesting. Will Luke Ashmore be at 141 or 149 lbs? And who will start wherever Luke Ashmore does not start?

    125 - Robles

    133 - Ben Ashmore

    141 - Luke Ashmore? Or maybe one of the three incoming freshmen?

    149 - Luke Ashmore? Or ____________?

    157 - Bubba Jenkins

    Vicente Varela should be at 149 again. Bubba going 157 should allow Te Edwards to reshirt this season.

    I agree..that's a big jump in weight in a very short period of time. This kid seems to be more concerned about getting prepared for MMA than NCAA.

    And apparently he already won the title at 157. Good to know for fantasy drafting purposes.

    He can be brash, but like Mark Perry an interview with Bubba is never boring. Virtually all wrestlers that transfer don't like their coaches, he just actually admitted it. He should step back and think at times, but I don't see anything outrageous here.

    He wore blue and white and now he'll where maroon and gold, but bottom line Jenkins is in the sport for Jenkins and Jenkins alone. Fortunately for ASU he'll only be there through March and won't have time to transfer poor habits. He may have the wrestling technique to bring to MMA, but let's see how he reacts to that first fist on his button.
    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.

    Like Mike Tyson once said, "Everyone has a plan 'til they get punched in the mouth".

    The worm certainly has turned regarding Mr. Jenkins.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
