    The NCAA site might not count his record in Midlands or other events that were not under NCAA regulations.

    I don't really know that much about him to be honest with you. Seems like a tough kid, possible AA in the future, I don't think we'll ever win a title or anything.

    He's more of a buckeye guy. Army of Darkness sort of ruined the necrinomicon for me. I know too many weirdos who actually thought a paperback contained some weird sumarian facts.

    Besides, the lady who owns the weird, never ending story used books store by my house says that Satanic verses was better and then tried to sell me a serving tray with and elephant foot attached to it.
  4. Perhaps we could tempt minor Ramos into attending IU if we elected himpresident for the Campus Crusade to elect Cthullu-their motto being why settle for the Lesser Evil. I have actually read the Simon "Necrominicon " and had some weird stuff happen as a result . Parhaps you could get your Druid friend to offer a sacrifice for IU to win the big 10.

    The avatar is a depiction of a regular old, run of the mill, Giant squid, hence architeuthis. If I were an octopus, I would be Enteroctopus dofleini or, North Atlantic Giant Octopus.

    I was just actually having a conversation with a close friend of mine who is very much into Lovecraft. He's in interesting person, who delights in obscure relgions, a practicing, ordained Druid preist, and just an all around strange dude.

    I found a statue from an artist here in MN of Cthullu. Just a resin bust, which I procured and gave to him as a gift for letting me and my drunk friends stay at his house for the Big 10 tourney a few years back. Since you brought it up, I'm sure you are aware of what dread Cthullu symbolizes. It turns out, that of the 1100 or so of these busts that was made, only about 600 of them reached stores because the majority of them were broken/destroyed in shipping.

    I'll wager that never in a million years did you think that you'd find someone who would be able to tie Cthullu and Wrestling together in the same story. I'm glad you brought it up.

    I haven't gotten around to watching that footage yet, but thanks to Quick and Akzent, I'm a junky for Russian Wrestling. I'll deffinitley check it out.

    On a different note, if Angel stays around and Mena can get a hold of the younger Ramos brother, you might get to see almost a decade of Hoosiers competeing for a championship at 125.

    Thanks so much.
  7. Check out Cal state -bakersfield -he is still the strength coach there -as div 11 he was 6th ,5th and 2nd -1984 -87 -I was just wondering if you know why he didn't wrestle his sophmore year.

    Dude, Pope never won NCAA's. He may have been great, whoever he was but that won't make my list.

    I don't have any inside information but I think you would be suprised to see what kind of money the top guys arent getting in scholarships. It is beggining to become known within the Iowa wrestling community that alot of the guys are turning down or getting money elsewhere (camps etc...) so that we can get some of the other guys. Brands does not give out full rides. And when you are getting kids like Grant Gambrall and Nate Moore right from your backyard I doubt you have to throw very much money at them.

    I figured as much, thatnk for not thinking I was too big of a jerk. Vince is being trained by a guy whom I grew up training with under his father. I think in the Right environment he can excell and I think he will be good for one or two aa's but with Mena who knows. Tony would be a huge pick up. I could see him going anywhere from 125 for the first year to 149, if he hits a growth spurt. If he does go to Indy, He will be taking a huge step if he can work with Mena. He seems to wrestle like he's sort of young yet, but he's a killer. I can only be excited to see what happens as he matures. I'm very familiar with that GBN program and have a great deal of respect for that coaching staff. It will be interesting to see what he does.

    Thanks for the response, but I'm not 100% sure what that has to do with the ramos brothers. I'm happy for you though. Its great to have your team making improvements. The hoosiers are building a nice little program there

    Hey, being an Indiana fan, what are your thoughts on Vince Ramos coming in? After watching him compete in HS, he has a lot of upside with the right atmosphere. Do you have any idea if they are going to go after his brother who I think is much better than him?
  13. View Conversation
    Thats a good pick up for them. With DeGain in the room he should get better.

    Oh yes, when I heard of that upset I about died. I think that was Schmaltz's first Big 10 win of his career.

    I think the plan is to have Angel at 125, Ortega at 133 and Andrae at 141 next year. Angel holds the weight pretty well and doesn't seem as affected by it as Andrae is. Andrae looks horrible sometimes and other times is a super stud.

    I don't agree with that. How could you not like Brands if you are a big Gable fan? They are the same person. I'm not sure that Brands promised to stay at VT for a long time. Did they really expect him to stay if the Iowa job opened up. I mean com on...Really. I'm not even going to get started on what VT did to those five wrestlers that transfered. That's a rant way too long. I am interested in the other controversies that Brands has been involved in though. Please enlighten me.

    Haha its very Minnysota heavy here, but its getting better. I'm a fan of the IU wrestlers, but not the coaches. I really don't have a team I support in college just like good wrestling.

    Do you think NC St will make a big fuss about it and threaten to make him lose a year of eligibility? Sounds like it could get nasty between him and the coach if he pushes the football angle.

    The LA is just for my name Champ Kind from the movie Anchorman, that is where the movie is set. Hobart has a good program and always have some good wrestlers. Cosgrove is tough as nails. I am not sure how he will do at Purdue, he could easily be 157 or 165 if he fills out. He will definitely be 149, but if he goes up higher could be in trouble when his length isn't much of an advantage.
  20. Like I said -never saw it just knew it happened . I don't play around with this infernal machine too much so --what is youtube?
