Thread: 10 Random Observations From Big 10s

    Default 10 Random Observations From Big 10s

    I've sort of taken it as my duty on this board to talk about the things that most of you probably don't care about. So today I'm going to embrace that role and share with you Ten Random Observations From the Big 10s.

    1. Before the tournament started Saturday morning, Schwab and Slaton were working out hard at the Bryce Jordan Center. They were practicing moves on each other and both were completely drenched in sweat.

    2. Tsirtsis got his hair cut. Oh, and his mom was there. Haven't seen (heard) her in the crowd in a while.

    3. The national anthem was sung by an a cappella quartet (same group that sang it at the Penn St-Iowa dual a couple weeks ago). They were excellent.

    4. Jay Borschel and Dan Dennis are still rocking the porn mustaches.

    5. The Ohio State wrestlers are unnaturally tan.

    6. I finally discovered who that guy is that LoSt uses on his avatar. All this time, I thought it was really LoSt.

    7. After Beatty's win in the consolation round, Ironside was doing his radio commentary standing up, talking with his hands -- totally into it, very intense.

    8. Jake Herbert's grandmother calls him "Jakers." Oh, and the Herbert Clan's purple t-shirts said "Jake Herbert: Putting the laughter in manslaughter."

    9. Attendance for each session was 4,000+ (I think around 4,400 for the finals).

    10. If you were there and didn't get yourself some of the Creamery ice cream, you really missed out.

    great post. they deserve comments.

    1. What else does Slaton have to do?
    2. Good.
    3. I've heard them before and they are good.
    4. They have to do something after wrestling.
    5. I noticed that last year with Jaggers. I mean they do group dancing contests.
    6. Kinser.
    7. He probably drop kicked the play by play guy.
    8. Herbert is the man
    9. Decent. Not great. Prob didn't help that PA States & EIWA's were on the same day. Jersey states in AC as well.
    10. true
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I noticed numbers 2, 4, 5, 8, and 10.

    tOSU guys have been unnaturally tan all year. It's something I try to ignore because I think tanning is pretty weak.

    About 6: LoSt isn't in his own avatar, but he is in Zapp's!

    I love your posts, Angel! Maybe I should do one like this from the ACCs.

    As to the Creamery, yes it is very good (and you can actually have it shipped to you packed in dry ice)... but I still prefer the ice cream from Meyer's Dairy going out towards Boalsburg...

    #4. Fat bit of good the stach's did for them this week.

    #9 Minnesota State Highschool Tournament drew 55,000 over three days by comparison.

    Like the post!

    2. Oh, I had the pleasure of both... she sat a section over (but moved accordingly). I'm all for Moms who yell, because, well, I'm a sister that yells... but she yells some crazy s***!

    3. I liked the quartet, but though the violin guy did an amazing job!

    4. The porn mustaches freaks me out... I really want to hold Dennis down and shave his face!

    5. I heard that one of the guys on the team owns a tanning bed... they all apparently take turns using it!

    6. Yeah... Kinser.

    7. Didn't see Ironside, but LOVED Brands telling tOSU fans to "Suck it" several times after Keddy beat Pucillo. Dude is crrraaazzzzzyyy!

    8. I've known Jake since he was like 6 and everyone close to him calls him "Jakers"... his grandmother's awesome! (You should meet his parents too!)

    9. I definitely thought there would've been more people there, but like Grips stated, PIAA States were going on, EWL's were in Lock Haven, EIWA's were in Philly & NJ States in AC.

    10. Didn't get Creamery Ice Cream, but hey, I can walk down the street and get it any time I want!

    Some others -

    1. Loved the black t-shirts with the gold Hawkeye that many of the women were rocking on Saturday! (I wish more schools made cute shirts like those!)

    2. The Iowa crowd was much tamer this year than in previous years... but still had a very good showing considering how far they had to come! Nice to see so many PSU fans show support... even if there were many lackluster attempts at the "WE ARE... PENN STATE!"

    3. I think I watched more of the Perry-Brands interaction during the Borschel v. Wright match than the actual match. Mark Perry cracks me up.

    4. Will Durkee changed shirts every session; most of the Big 10 coaches are fabulous dressers. I’m impressed.

    5. How dare the announcer pronounce Sanshiro Abe’s last name incorrectly! Good thing he’s always in such a good mood!

    #5 Sketchy practice on the tanning bed...I think I understand their poor performance this weekend.

    Brands was giving the Ohio State section crotch chops?

    Wow...

    Thats the word on the street. Where else can you see that in college athletics where the next day the university isn't having to call a press conference to apologize for the matter. More likely they would call a press conference to give him a contract extension.
