    Where's the empirical data..??? Easy to say...difficult to support...

    As an Ohio guy, I have to agree with this based on DI College wrestling. PA produces more NCAA qualifiers than any other state pretty much every year. Ohio and PA are always pretty close for AA finishes, but I think Ohio typically takes that cake.

    Those are not fair assumptions.

    Well, most everybody I know outside of the states in question acknowledges that PA is the top wrestling state.

    Like I said it's not a fair assumption for you to say that everyone outside of PA thinks that way just because a majority of the people you know say so .
