As you probably know, Pope and several other tough guys followed coach TJ Kerr from San Jose St. to Bakerfield when Joe Seay left for OSU. Sort of the same deal as the whole Iowa-Va.Tech dust-up, but since it was pre-internet, i didn't create the same controversy. Pope was an AA (5th) for San Jose as a soph. You are right about his dominance his senior year. He was a beast. Kind of Metcalfesque, but more physical and mean, IMO. Fun guy to watch wrestle.
    Small bit of trivia, the year before Pope lost to Chiparelli, Rico was decked in less than 1:00 by Pope's San Jose/CSUB teammate Marvin Jones in the NCAA consolation finals. Sweet bodylock throw!
    I first saw Pope at an AAU tournament a coupla hundred years ago -guys were afraid of him -literally-one guy walked off the mat -like the one hwt did against the Russian Experiment -like -hey -I am a mere mortal -first time I ever saw something like that at that level.
    PS -my bad about the Div 2 thing but I thought San Jose ST was Div 3 at that time .

    Pope still is at Bakersfield coaching. He was and still is a physical machine.
    During his career he had a problem agianst a little known wrestler from San Francisco State University named Andrew Steffen who Pope had a 2-3 record against. MOJO can give you more info on Steffen (his former teammate) Had to bring up the Gators.

Kelly caught Penrith in that text book spladle for the fall, winning the NCAA title for Iowa St. and breaking Iowa's win streak. It was the first time in my then brief history of involvement in the sport that the tourney didn't end with a bunch of guys in black and gold crowding around the championship trophy posing for pictures! I thought that was against the law or something!
    Bill Kelly's response to the press after the match was classic! When asked what he called the move that got him the win and the National Championship, he relied, "I call it a pin!"
