Thread: Vote For Ben Askren

  1. #1

    Default Vote For Ben Askren

    My favorite Mizzou blog, Rock M Nation, did a bracket of the top Mizzou athletes in the past 25 years. (It's been fun to see how popular wrestling has become among Tigers. I did the write-up for Matt Pell, and he even made it out of the first round over a hooper!) Not surprisingly, Ben Askren is in the finals, against Heisman finalist Chase Daniel. Before the voting begins, they put together a little profile of Ben that you may enjoy:

    I hope he wins... If he doesn't (which wouldn't really surprise me), it's a crime

    Not really all that uncommon. I hear it happened alot to his opponents after their matches.

    That 2006 match is fun to watch (what there is of it). It's funny, it looks like two 3rd graders wrestling at a kids tournament, but it doesn't look sloppy or anything like that.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I'd heard anecdotes about Askren saying to people that he didn't really have any natural athletic ability, but I don't think I'd ever heard or read that it drove him to tears.
