  1. International folk style competition

    I'm going to call it a day....posts by Fabio and Y2 that I agree with. Never say never..
  2. Best 1xer

    McCubbins was a double Jr National Champ, a Jr World Team member, one of the early resident Greco athletes at the Olympic Training Center. He's also a close personal friend with Y2.
  3. Iswa state tournaments

    No, Cadets are not required to have a coach at any event.
  4. Indiana State Champs vs Ohio potential champs

    I would suspect those numbers are not correct. No way we lost 340 programs in one year.
  5. Indiana State Champs vs Ohio potential champs

    Ohio went to two classes in 1971 and to three classes in 1976. I would be interested to see the participation numbers from prior to 1971 and 1976.
  6. Big 10 Championships Roll Call

    My son and I are going both days
  7. THANK YOU Clark and Samuels

    I have had the good fortune to see a lot of great matches in a variety of locations around the world. This match was one of the most entertaining I have ever seen. I know I can say this with 100% certainty....I have never seen a standing ovation for 3rd place heavyweight match anywhere on the planet. Well done gentlemen, well done!
  8. Team USA World Cup Finals vs Iran! Watch LIVE

    The answer is pretty clear...who is he wrestling and where are they wrestling...the answer Iran/Iran. They get the benefit of the doubt
  9. Team USA World Cup Finals vs Iran! Watch LIVE

    I went to Iran in 2000 for the Tahkti Cup. Hands down the best wrestling trip I had ever been on. The Iranian people are by far the most passionate and knowledgeable wrestling fans in the world....other than those who will be a Banker's Life this weekend, A little history lesson for a Friday...the World Cup originated in Toledo, Ohio. Joe Scalzo, Sr who lived in Toledo was the Vice President of Fila at the time. The event was held in Toledo from 1973-1992 with the exception of 2 years. The USA won the World Cup and beat the Soviet Union for the first time in 1980. I was there to witness it. Joe Scalzo Sr was a coach, referee or administrator at every Olympic Games from 1952-1984. He passed away in 1986. I wore a lapel pin that belonged to him on my suit jacket when Fila made us wear the coat and ties. So a little part of Joe made it to one more Olympics.
  10. What it's really all about...family!

    Terry Brands' wife told me it is much more difficult watching their son, Nelson wrestle than it was watching Terry. I know it's much tougher on the parents.
  11. I saw a commercial the other day on the BTN with Ashneault from Rutgers saying 'If you wrestle me, you have to wrestle my entire family." I think it was Jim Gibbons who said "When you go out for wrestling your entire family goes out for wrestling too My family was the same way. When I first went out for wrestling, my dad was against it. He didn't understand it much. It didn't take long for him to catch on and fully support me. He grew to love the sport and was my biggest fan. When my mom moved from our family home to a retirement community, I found brackets and wall charts from tournaments I forgot I wrestled in. My brother, sister-in-law and niece faithfully followed me around. I have met so many great wrestling families over the years. People who truly care about one another and support each other. So, if this is your first trip, your umpteenth, or your last trip to the State Finals, I wish you the best. Most importantly, don't forget to enjoy the journey.
  12. ISWA Coaching requirements

    Your background check came up a little short.
  13. No, it comes from way before that. I think he is an arrogant and uniformed a$$. Other than that I'm fairly neutral on the guy.
  14. It's a sad day when FloWrestling is considered a credible news source. Willie is ok, but Pyles is the perfect example of "give a guy a microphone and he becomes an expert".
  15. I was fortunate enough to make a trip to Iran with the US National Team in 2000. For a pure wrestling experience, this was the best trip I had been on. Passionate and knowledgeable fans, excellent food, VIP treatment, greeted at the airport by TV stations and the press, excellent competition. It was all about wrestling with very little else. One of my best referee friends is Iranian. We used to joke about how closed minded our governments were. Today they proved it.
