    I agree ban. Ness just seems to score most of his points from kids trying to finish around his waist. Most kids can stalemate that position but few actually try Ness's type funk from that position. Attack him low and don't allow him his hips is the recipe for success against Ness.

    Pass this along to Mike Kelly.

    Any comments on Chris Dardanes? I haven't seen the match but it sounds like he really got pounded. I would expect that to be a fairly large upset?

    Rumors swirling he had the flu. His feet were in cement so it makes sense.

    Eggum said one of the guys was sick. Storley said in his interview that CD was sick all week. Minny doesn't have a 133 backup they can put out there so they'd have to forfeit w/o Chris.
    "He beat nobodies..Thorn at 133 won't be great, R12 or worse imo...
    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    It's important to note that the Gophers have not officially released anything concerning Ness's time off.

    What about Thane ?
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I only saw brief highlights- I got the idea the other guy scored a big move early, and Dardanes was reckless in trying to catch up, thus giving up more big points.
