    Ahhhh yes, NU is definitely right up there with Cornell in terms of having the best of both worlds. I think I might like the scenery around Cornell a little better though. You couldn't go wrong with either, though. Michigan is sort of in that discussion, too.

    This guy cracks me up. Can we make his avatar purple and white pom-pons?

    purple and white pom-poms?

    Sounds more like you'd prefer to see a shiner around the eye from pom pommelling.

    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.

    I selected an Ivy. Wrestling is going to last 4 or 5 years. The career opportunities that come with a prestigious degree (regardless of the quality of education) are going to last a lifetime.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.

    I am livid Penn State is not on this list. "Other big ten." BAH! Minnesota makes it not PSU, what a crock. Biased poll. Don't vote. One disappointing season and even my own father disrepects us.

    GO LIONS.

    A person can get a good education, or win a National title at many, many colleges and universities. This is about probabilities, not certainties, but given your scenario, I'd go to Harvard, depending on one's career plans, and if they can handle living in an urban East-Coast environment for 4 years. Somewhat better opportunities than those other Ivies with decent wrestling programs, or Stanford or Northwestern IMHO. Cambridge is a fabulous learning environment. The Harvard coach is talented, and also a very good man.
    I reluctantly agree with Richardson:
    "The career opportunities that come with a prestigious degree (regardless of the quality of education) are going to last a lifetime." Perceived value and real value are two different things.

    Much of this speculation depends on just how much wrestling matters to you. If it THE most important thing in your life, and you plan to coach college wrestlers for a career, then go to Iowa. If you want to go to a place where wrestling really matters, that's where you go.

    If I had to pick a school now I'd go with tOSU. Great partners out of HS, a great state to wrestle in, and a young coach who obviously has a solid head on his shoulders.
