    Darn it, can’t believe you didn’t tag me. Lol
     Swin, I’d have to concur on all the above. You’ve done a remarkable job. On a side note, I know your nephew well and it’s sad to not see him on the mat. He’s still a team player and in fact is the team manager. Great kid and family.

    I personally thought the right call was made. When they showed the reviews in slow motion there was no pulling of the head gear. Yes, he had it palmed but was forcing the head away.

    Worth noting Ashnault was lucky to get this extra medical year based on previous injuries cutting some previous seasons short. Glad he’s able to make the most of it.

    Overall thoughts:
    1) Embarrassing that Nolf won that match. Absolutely outwrestled and Hilday was robbed. Nolf is out of the Hodge and it’s all Nickal at this point.
    2) It didn’t make sense at the time and makes less sense today but they should’ve never pulled Parris’s redshirt. You could clearly see he needed a year to grow into that weight class. 
    3) Surprised by Lewis but maybe we shouldn’t be. Made a junior world team. Want to be elite? Make age-level world teams. Look at the guys who’ve done in on the world level. Lee, Fix, Yianni, Zahid, Hall, Steveson, etc. 
    4) Steveson should’ve never lost that match. I’m actually shocked he didn’t get it done. Got sloppy on one exchange so it’s his own fault. But I hate when guys like Cassar get rewarded with absolutely no offense. 
    5) I have a buddy who wrestled at Lowell and grew up around the Deans. So I’ve always rooted for them from afar. Good for Max Dean. As for Cornell, I think if I had a son who was being recruited right now. It would be Penn St #1 (and I dislike penn state) and Cornell #2. Those two programs always seem to get the most out of their guys.
    6) Indiana as a state has a long way to go.  
    7) really excited for Fix-Suriano. Anyone else remember that insane marathon match they wrestled at who’s #1?
    😎 Yianni might be my favorite wrestler in the entire NCAA. Just fun to watch. I think Erieyman (spelling) was the only guy in that weight class who can beat him.
    9) A topic for another day but how many of these guys will take Olympic redshirts next year? A lot of these guys have had world level success. See #3 above. 
    10) Finals picks:
    Lee, Fix, Yianni, Ashnault, Nolf, Joseph, Zahid, Dean, Nickal, Cassar

    I’m baffled Nolf let this get down to a last second chance for Hidlay.  Bo moves up a little in the Hodge vote with that one.

    As a diehard Ohio State fan, I really want Joey to win a national championship before he graduated, but also pretty bummed that it(if he even does win) it had to come at the expense of Nick. Wish they could both be national champions. 
    That said, I wouldn’t count on Nick graduating without winning one.

    I’ve seen it before but not with as much intent as Bo did. He didn’t just flip the guy, he ripped that one. So much so that I believe the opponent was a little upset about it as he wouldn’t let Bo help him up afterwards.

    How about Todrank at 157? I know he is listed as 141/149 for Buffalo but he did score 2 on Nolf and instantly went viral. He may not win any matches but at least it would be entertaining.

    It did seem odd that McKenna was so gassed at the end of their first match, so the illness theory seems to make sense anyway. And he (McKenna) had missed the previous match or two before the PSU meet.
    IMO, McKenna seems to control their matches more than Lee does, but it is close enough that Lee can definitely get it done.

    Can’t never go wrong for job advancement, but the schools in Evansville are not as bad as you may think. Evansville area schools have high marks as well. US news and world report has 2 Evansville area schools above Brownsburgh and 1 other not too far behind. That’s not including the Catholic Schooling which has very high academic and success rates. 
    Crime rate as Matthew has stated is not even comparable. The Ville is getting bad. 
    As a parent myself, it’s ultimatley my wife and I decision as to how we groom our boys. To those that wanna judge my parenting, I just let them fume over it as I know we did the best thing for them and our family.

    All I know is that Brownsburg was first in the state in ISTEP testing (Standarized tests). They also had all schools in the corporation be rated an A, for like the 6th year in a row. Top notch schools.

    But how about Cassar? Couldn't even secure a starting spot last year at 197, transforms his body into a HWT in the off-season & wins a Big10 title. This is the kind of guy I wouldn't bet against.
