    No Hwt. that I enjoyed watching more than Tommy Rowlands, who was a "tiny" Hwt., but that's also what made him so fun to watch; he moved and hit moves like a low-middle weight.

    I enjoyed watching him wrestle as much as anyone, regardless of weight class.

    Could not agree more! He holds the TOSU record for TDs. But returning to the original subject, my word, look at Nelson's legs!!! He's huge!

    On a related note, what was Rey? I'm thinking he was at least 265-270. Kind of the anti-Nelson, really thick through the chest.
    As a sophomore at NCAA's in 2010 (the Zabriskie v. Rosholt year) he was 265. That's the only data point that I have.

    Shane, could you post that weigh-in list? It'd be interesting to look at again

    Had a friends wedding in Rochester a few years back when Tony and his class were RS'ing. They were in town helping with the Christmas Tournament there and even though I'm an unabashed Gopher fan, they were all incredibly cool to meet and BS with. Dietchler was a little hyper and borderline ADHD, but I think that's his nature in general. Z Sanders was incredibly polished and you can tell he has asperations to coach. I kept trying to get him to talk **** about some other 125's (we were coming from the reception so I was a little more willing to chatter) and he ninja'd his way out of it.

    I had heard about how good Tony was and that was my first time seeing him in person (again, he was on RS at the time). Mind you, I'm all of 5 foot 7 inches so everyone towers over me. Tony was tall, but in a preportionate way at that time that you didn't notice. However, when I shook his hand and do the lame "what I said was pretty funny, huh?" fist bumps....that's were you see how much of a beast that kid is. One of my buddies pointed out that Tony held a can of soda that looked like the rest of us would hold those old paper dixie cups from gradeschool.

    Smart kid and met his father briefly....he is not super tall, but is pretty solid. Built closer to Rey (see photo above). I believe he has a little brother but don't know his story wrestling wise.

    everyone kept saying Zabriskie weighed 230-I have to call BS on that -my guess was 215-220.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I'll try and find it. The thread might be easier to find than the email with the actual list.
