    I mean, isn't this all in fun?

    How many of us knew Marion would weigh in? That right there affected our predictions. What if the Penn State team didn't eat their Cael cookies <---yes, that is a joke. What if Long had to pull an all nighter to finish an exam? what if...what if....what if...

    Point being that there is a ton of reasons why things turn out the way they do. I think people need to chill the hell out and stop taking things so personnally. I say something about Brands and I'm public enemy #1. I make a prediction and it's "call out an APB" "check the obituaries"...I post a link and someone goes off like I slapped his momma and knocked up his sister.

    Chiiillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll people. geeeez.
    Agreed about the chilling out, but you are as guilty as anyone of antagonizing other posters. That someone wants to rub your nose in it after last Sunday shouldn't be all that surprising to anyone. But you are also right in that it is a long season, and Penn State may indeed take first at Nationals.

    Seeing what Cael has done with Ruth and DT don't think he is to blame for Wright.

    Lots of guys respond better to a certain coaching style of philosophy. I was a coach for three years and could NEVER get one of my better guys (potential wise) to break through to the next level. I tried everything I could think of. Now that I've moved away and they have a new coach the kid is on fire his senior year. The same thing has happened where I'm at now. Our hwt and 215 are making HUGE improvements and neither showed much growth last year when they were working with their old coach. Sometimes no matter what you do a guy won't respond well to you. I know that Ruth, Alton, and Taylor are all huge talents but I wonder what they would be at a different school or with a different coach? It'll be interesting to see what Cael does with this group and how far they go.

    Yeah, because I call you out for every post you make. But keep being pissed because you got called out for making like 30 predictions and then coming on here to talk about your vast prognostication skills.

    And what do you mean CW and Tampa aren't so far apart? Are you *gasp* threatening to come beat me up? ZOMG!

    You exaggerations are completely laughable. I see you are pretty psychotic on the subject of PSU & myself. I am surprised you haven't been Baker Acted.

    Pretty amazing that in order to make yourself look good you tracked down one of my posts from somewhere else on the internet & then don't put it in the correct context to try paint a bad picture of me. I have never doen that, can't even imagine how desperate you were to try & get me. Sorry, FAIL.

    I made one prediction in the end of December as a sort of knee jerk reaction to another poster & then my perceptions changed & posted the same prediction on @ least 3 other boards. Btw DOES VEGAS EVER CHANGE THEIR LINE? Yes of course they.

    I called MM & GG to win. Did you? Nope. I also called the Iowa-Okie St tie off by 2, PSU-IU off by 2 & PSU-Pitt off by 1. I am on a roll right now. On TWR I've won 3 prediction contests in a row. If Vegas had wrestling bets I would have made some money.

    And in the long run does it really matter? No not at all. Its just a game. You apparently have lost complete sight of that.

    Your hatred just blinds you to the facts that I did pick some winners. I can count one thing from you Zapp & that is if I say Black you will say white.

    I see that also when I reposted my prediction from FOS you said nothing. Of course. B/c Zapp can't admit being wrong @ least not to a PSU fan.

    If you would have seen all 3 of my preview videos you would have saw I took up both sides. I interviewed Troy Letters & Terry Brands. So I have more then demonstrated the ability to look @ both sides of a story or argument. I wouldn't say that of you however.

    If you can't discuss things on this site without resorting to "I'm going to beat you up" (and this isn't the first time that you've done this) we're going to start having major issues.

    Bare it in mind.

    Yeah, it's been pretty ridiculous in here for a while. Douchebags, dicks, dickheads, get bent, get phcked, eat shit, etc. Sounds like some folks are ready to get back out on the mat.

    It might be time for some folks to take a break from posting as blood pressures have to be soaring right now. While I am slightly entertained reading some of this stuff it is getting hard to sort out "The Wrestling Talk" from the large piles of threats, attacks, retorts, re-threats and re-retorts ad nauseum.

    I notice that some veteran posters who used to regularly contribute really good insights and info to the college threads either no longer post or do so very rarely. Not sure why they don't but I think I may have an idea...

    Yeah I haven't been on here much this season, but in the last week or so when I've checked in more frequently, I can barely get through a thread. Way too hateful to be enjoyable.
