    Little late on this, but thought I'd get it out there for future needs.

    Hmmm...Mrs. Schlottke must be on vacation.
    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.

    If the NCAA wasn't so archaic with their rules, we coulda been rooting for Curtis once again.

    I expect big things from Notre Dame College in the very near future. They are getting a TON of talent in that place, though I don't know anything about the coaching staff.

    Adam Koballa won, Jeffrey Pelton got 3rd and was ranked 1st, and for some reason Victor Crenshaw, who won it last year, did not wrestle. Beyond that, they have picked up some guys who were solid D1 recruits who have left their original school: Willie Saxton (Missouri) and Josh Rohler (Penn State) come to mind.
