    Taylor, Ruth, Wright PSU all-time

    While Taylor and Ruth both have a year left, I think it's fair to say that Taylor, Ruth, and Wright might be 3 of the best 5 PSU wrestlers in history. I only say might be because things can happen...

    Re: Thoughts on Finals

    Cael's sophomore year he beat Rob Rohn by tech fall in the quarters. Rohn would win the title next year when Cael moved up. In the semis Cael beat Eggum again, 16-5, before beating 2x finalist...

    Re: Level of competition

    Did some quick research...Cael's freshman year he defeated 2008 olympian Andy Hrovat in the quarters by fall in 4:24, then defeated Brad Vering in the semis by fall in 1:58. Vering moved up to 197...

    Re: Level of competition

    Cael didn't get to beat many national champs because he was winning all those titles in his weight. Because Dake kept moving up it opened spots for guys like Molinaro and St. John to win titles...I...

    You must be kidding about the actual cost. Steroids are plenty affordable, even by broke college kids. I have known a few college wrestlers in the Division I, II, and III levels that used steroids at...

    Re: Ed Ruth

    I don't think Ed Ruth fears the field at 184. It should be the field at 184 that is wary of Ruth. Wasn't Chris Perry the top ranked 184 when he dropped to 174? While it's far from certain that Perry...
