  1. Oh yeah and Lashaway.
  2. It wasn't a bad week for me considering the number of matches I had. I think I had 16 matches and scored 62 points, so I just about averaged a major every match. Not bad, but not great. I could have a very good conference week or a very mediocre week.

    Potential Conference Champs: Fio, Hump, Jaggers, Metcalf, Hall, Hamrah, Sponseller, Miller, Brenner, Umbehauer, Spellman, Chriswell, Porter.

    Probably Champs: Metcalf, Hall, Miller, Brenner, Spellman, Chriswell, Porter.

    The PAC10 champ at 197 will come from my team, but I think I am only starting Chriswell for conferences because I think Brenner and Miller should both win. You think that's a good idea?
  3. Well hippie , it was a bad week for the titties -my team -scored 60 points -plus the points I'll get for cleveland mauling the VMI kid monday went 17-2 Kennedy and sentes lost . I think -I am sure that I got Accboy into the top 6 after conferences -I traded him my 2 125's for his one -they'll get him 50 points minimum plus he picked up beebe and Krom,Krom is unbeaten in the ACC as is Garnett -he should have conference finalists in every weight .
    Been a long season .
  4. All the OSU recruits are tearing up their commitments and transferring to CMU or Kent State -they don't want to wrestle for ryan all of a sudden .Wonder why ?
  5. Due to the legal ramifications they pretty much have to have you under contract -nature of the beast -but DESIRE to be there will make up for whatever mistakes you'll make at the beginning -TRUST me when I say you will take more away from the experience than the kids . if I didn't think I knew you well enough I would never suggest this -NEVER -this is something special for you and the guys you'll work with -I still remember when I was an asst and had to tell Timmy Imel that even tho he had won the wrestle offs at 90lbs he would have to go up because his teammate's parents were the head of the booster club . The coach I was working for and I stayed after that night and I damn near killed him on the mat -some stuff stays with you -good and bad .You have the right stuff hippie .Good Luck .
  6. What I really want is just to be a workout partner and help kids out, get to know them. I can't wait until I'm in a position where I can do that.
  7. I'm not kidding when I say I want to, and I really wouldn't want money to do it. However, it looks like something that will have to wait until I graduate to do. If I want to graduate in 4 years (next year being the last one), I have to take a really busy class schedule every quarter. I also have to work 15-20 hours a week to keep my debt down. So my schedule is busy, but moreso, it is just very scattered and it's very difficult for me to plan things.

    I would pretty much have to help at a high school--not a junior high. I am 6'3" and 230 pounds, and I don't have a shot worth anything, so there aren't really any junior high kids that I could help much. I would love to help some 215 pounder or heavyweight develop; I have learned so much since I have been studying college wrestling. I appreciate your thoughts though. By the way, I plan on responding to the PM you sent me, I just have to finish this lab report beforehand.
  8. Hey hippie -go to bed !! I really meant what I said in that one post -School systems are dying for lay coaches -you could work with kids -coach wrestling and they pay you like 6-700 bucks at the end of the season for
    1-getting to work out
    2 do something you love
    3 make a difference in a young guys life .
    I never had a father around and I IDOLIZED my coaches -you could do that -I got a call from one of my ex wrestlers tonight -I listened to his problems -that is all most people want -he was bitching about losing $55,000.00 in the market -i didn't tell him I'd be living in my car soon -he has enough on his mind and ,quite frankly ,it is my problem . I felt so much better after talking to Rick -he was about 1/2 loaded and wanted me to go to the state tournament with him and a bunch of the guys Friday -I begged off -I do not have the $8 admission fee .
    Next year promise me you'll go out and be a lay coach and make a difference .PLEASE .
  9. Now you know how I felt the first time I had Honeycutt and had to waive him and a week later he wins the Scuffle for you .I know I told you about Fio but he is in the big 12 and they only get -at best -2 matches and he'll have to wrestle Clark or Blanc -the rankings just suck-I gotta quit looking at those -at 141 Cleveland has majored Hoehn and Hoehn has lost to a NAIA kid and to D'Alie from CMU yet he remains #8-M* loses to Kendall and moved up . The Div 1 people do not have Cleveland wrestling Hoehn buit he did -Hoehn was majored by Cleveland and then lost to a NAIA kid whom Cleveland pinned -Cleveland beat Krom 10-4 and is rated below him -the kid is 19-6 -Sentes pins a ranked guy and beats another kid and drops ? Sentes was 213-3 in high school and as an 8th grader he wasn't allowed to score but he finished 2nd in the state 4x state champ and 1x runner up.
  10. Ain't that a b----? I keep him around through all his struggles and then right when I waive him he gets 3 consecutive pins.

    It's still great to see though. I hope he has a good Big 10 tourney, maybe wins a couple matches at NCAAs, and then goes to work like crazy on his neutral.
  11. Just wanted to congratulate you on Nikko Trigas being named wrestler of the week in the big 10.
  12. It's true--Futrell took Triggas down twice in the first and led 4-2 going into the second. Triggas took top, and it was all downhill for Futrell from there. 174 was a very exciting match, just like I said in my review. Dergo took him down fairly early, Rella escaped with like 10 secs left in the 1st. Rella ended up getting 3 takedowns in the match to win it. Very exciting though. I definitely think Rella outwrestled him though. Rella had 6 points from TDs, 2 from escapes. Dergo had 2 points from TDs, and 4 from escapes. I have to disagree that Jaggers was in trouble though...

    What do you mean you almost got banned for picking Angel last year? There had to be more to it than that if you truly almost got banned...

    BY THE WAY I happen to think that this board has an equal amount of Iowa color as Minnesota color. There is definitely a higher Minnesota concentration than at themat, but themat is just ridiculously overloaded with Iowa fans.
  13. quit taking my pain meds pain meds I can't sleep very well but I am starting to think more clearly -still ,obviously , cannot type worth a damn as I hit the send key by mistake...last year -when I was a gung ho hoosier fan I was almost banned from the board for predicting Angel would take the GOLDEN golden gopher -NESS-I was correct but got death threats -seriously !!! Don't care enough about IU to post my predictions -but let us say Minn does not match up well with IU this year .
    I went to the OSU site and they said the 74 match was exciting with Dergo giving a great effort and also that Jaggers was in trouble when they called the fall-so give DAD a break -I am OLD-they also say Futrell took niko down twice quickly -I remember specifically saying if Futrell could stay away from Nikko ...Ill. shpould have red shirted that little guy -too small-weighed 111 walking around last year when he won the state at 112 -he will be a force next year .
  14. Well hippie -I finally fell asleep for about 6 hours -of course it was in the middle of the day so I'll be prowling around this little place like a caged cougar all night -since I q
  15. I found the coaches and the RPI but no gold ,silver etc,.,-example 125 -RPI-Garnett#8 Sentes #3 coaches #14 and #7 0the coaches I can see but the RPI are ridiculous -for 15 weight classes I scored a 122 the lowest being Barnes with a 32 -4 record @ 15.Fxx the rankings -I am going to wrestle both 133 lber's just because it sounds fun .I think Kennedy can win it and Baker can AA --or vise versa I can get you Winston at 57 for Lashaway -he's in that 14 team confernece so he might score more finishing fifth than Lashaway finishing first .
  16. They are based on the formula for qualifying for nationals. I don't know the details, but I think Gold is a lock, and maybe silver, too.
  17. Where did tigerfan get those rankings ? I looked but found nothing saying GOLD SILVER etc -only the coaches rankings.
  18. No problem -fifth turn down so far -I am trying -I like my guy to win his conference and then ??he got lucky and placed 8th last year -who knows . As long as he gets through the conference and I get those bonus points -I am cool.
  19. The word is in: it's a no on the trade.
  20. I am just the middle man -let me know ...so I can tell acc...
