    Re: The Losses of Dan Gable Article

    It was, and is, a very powerful piece. It took a lot of courage for Gable to reveal his past and its demons, imo. While he may not have dealt with his traumas in the best ways, the article gave...
  2. Re: Vaisforlovers NCAA Summer Predictions All Weights Posted

    I hadn't even focused on this fact before when people were Cael-bashing a few years ago. That's a pretty impressive first three years as a coach - significant improvement for the program.

    Re: Your teams lineup

    Dylan Alton's performance at the US Open at 145.5 raises some interesting possibilities for PSU next year. If Andrew Alton's problems were weight-related and if Dylan can hold 149, this could be a...

    Re: Dake wins Hodge Trophy

    Call me crazy, but from a team standpoint, I'd still rather have Taylor (who got more team points than Dake this tournament) than Dake. More team points and I think Taylor is a much better team...
  5. Re: Taylor, Ruth, Wright PSU all-time

    Andy Matter was wrestling at my weight class (roughly) when I started wrestling in high school, so I was a big fan. We used to get the Lehigh/Penn State matches back then on public tv out of...
  6. Re: Shameless Ok State fan Falcon's choice for champ next year

    Plus, whoever fills in at 141 (Retherford?) will likely be an upgrade. Lawson should be better with a year back in wrestling under his belt. I see PSU being significantly stronger next year,...

    Re: Iowa vs OSU Predictions/Results

    I'll just hope for more action than last year's dual, which saw less than 80 match points scored combined between the teams. Iirc, it was 15-15 with 0 bonus points scored and the Cowboys won based...
  8. Re: 2013 Southern Scuffle: Predictions, Results, Discussion

    So much for the "you're not going to major Caldwell" argument. Well, if you don't even try, it's probably true.

    Re: Dake wbd Caldwell 4-1

    That's kind of my point. He was totally unconcerned with the team outcome and wholly focused on himself. I disagree that he couldn't bonus either Caldwell or the wrestler from Missouri. He...

    Re: Dake wbd Caldwell 4-1

    It was interesting being at the match and I view it as a major knock against Dake and/or Koll. Cornell had the dual within reach against both Oklahoma State and Missouri if Dake (and Bosak for that...

    Re: Oklahoma line up

    I don't think "qualifying" for the NCAAs from the Big 4 is much of an indicator of anything except you were a starting wrestler at OK, Missouri, ISU or OKS. A lot of weights, iirc, have everyone...

    Re: IU lands another stud to ruin

    1973 was the last year of single-division in PA (my senior year of hs). 1974 was the first AAA/AA year with AAA at Rec Hall of PSU and AA at the State Farm Show Arena in Harrisburg.

    Re: Iowa signs No. 1 Recruiting Class

    I saw Anna Kournikova play in person one time. You didn't care who won. You just wanted the match to go on a looooonnngggg time, especially the games where she was on your side of the court.

    Re: Everything Penn State Wrestling

    I agree something like 25%. You have to consider that Perrelli's style on his feet is to shoot while backing up. He doesn't do much when going forward. It wasn't my favorite strategy to watch,...
  17. Re: Molinaro Joins Rutgers Coaching Staff

    True. He seems to have issues with his head not being in matches at tourney time more than anything else. The daily competition with Tank should straighten out that problem - one way or the other.

    Re: Confused

    The NJSIAA (governing body of NJ high athletics) has very tight rules regarding a lot of aspects of competition. Blair doesn't comply with them, so no NJ wrestling tourney for them. Their...

    Re: Everything Penn State Wrestling

    I was watching a little of this year's Nationals semi round the other day. It was frightening how fresh Nico looked and acted after his match with Perrelli. Didn't he just wrestle 11 minutes?
  20. Re: Molinaro Joins Rutgers Coaching Staff

    Good one!

    As a current NJ resident and former Rutgers grad student, I'd like to think that Frank can help take them to the next level. Up 'til now, they've been incredibly frustrating to follow...

    It looks like even the NCAA is in on the confusion with Bosak. From their look back at this year's tournament and look forward to next posted this week:

    My only problem was with the "ridiculous" tag - which to me was unwarranted in this case. Everyone involved seems to agree Brown is definitely in the running for AA status and could go far. To be...

    Thanks for clarifying. I think your position is entirely reasonable. I'd probably steer away from the "ridiculous" tag myself, because people have posted a lot more ridiculous projections on other...
