    curious how it doesn't say that he received a scholarship...is he walking on?

    it is start to seem crowded down there at the lower weights but i suppose he still has his senior year and then a redshirt year...hell, he will probably come out in college at 141...

    nice little coup...its nice to see the apple valley-university of minnesota connection hook up again...

    Kids grow and its easier for them to come in as 125lbers and become 141 or 149lbers. I wrestled 112lbs as a senior in high school and wrestled 141 as a senior in college, there were also a few other guys like that on my college team.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I came out of highschool at 126 and was cutting down to 112 during my senior season...i left college weighing 132 and only wrestled my freshman year...it was strange how after i quit trying to cut weight, I just stabilized even though I was still working out...I think Mincey will be pegged as a 133 to 141...
