    Re: What Are You Reading? TWT Book Discussion

    There's a novel about high-school wrestling that's currently available as a free download for Kindle. The novel is called "Throwback" by Dave Conifer, and it's been out for a while (I first read it...

    Re: NCAA Wrestling Final Four - Team Championship

    Wouldn't that give an advantage to the teams that wrestled the first weekend, if their banged-up wrestlers have an extra week to heal? Why couldn't you have two regional championships on Saturday and...

    Re: Bobby Knight resigns

    So it's effective immediately, not at the end of the season? This just seems weird. Granted, I haven't been following Texas Tech that closely, but I don't think they're playing that badly. I wonder...

    Re: Get Any Great Wrestling-Related Gifts?

    Santa brought me the DVD of "Gable's Advanced Wrestling," which combines the content of both the "On Your Feet" and "On The Mat" videotapes. I hope to put all my "advanced" knowledge to good use when...

    Am I reading this right that there will be Greco and Women's Freestyle, but no Men's Freestyle? I was trying to remember what the format was last year, and am drawing a complete blank. I wish I was...

    The bad weather isn't supposed to hit Iowa City until 3 p.m. or so, so you should hopefully still have time to come back tomorrow morning if need be. Right now, the fog is really thick out there, so...

    I'm really sorry to hear that, Wiltz. Having dealt with the frustrations and anxieties of caring for an elderly parent, I can imagine a little bit of what you're feeling. Not being able to be right...
  8. Re: A financial incentive for American wrestlers if they win Olympic Gold

    If Russians are so "relaxed and lived life rather than constantly trying to grow GDP" (as you suggest Americans should do), why do they care about monetary compensation for an Olympic gold medal? Why...

    Ah. That makes sense.
  10. Is something wrong with the Upcoming Events feature?

    I'm seeing entries like "Wisconsin@Home" and "Ohio State@Ohio State" instead of listing the two teams that are wrestling. I first noticed it yesterday when there were a ton of events listed. Before...

    Well, I did that about 8 years ago -- I only have a debit card that is tied to that oh-so-skimpy checking account (mind you, it's only been really skimpy for the past couple of years). I've found it...

    I don't agree with blaming movies, TV, or music for causing violent behavior necessarily. And I hate when social conservatives play Chicken Little about our moral decay.

    Thanks for the updates, both of you. Is there a place where we can find results of the U.S. individual matches -- or could either of you post them here? Actually, as long as I'm asking for favors,...
