  1. Pretty cool. Im thinking of getting a shirt and wearing it at the gym. Good motivation for my workout.
  2. Nothing more intimidating than a guy working out with a log
  3. Just a short Vision Quest story to get everybody excited and to get out of the pre-season wrestling doldrums. So I was on Facebook and I have an old wrestling buddy who is friends with Frank Jasper "AKA Brian Shute". My buddy got an awsome autographed picture from Frank of the legendary stadium log scene. I had a little conversation with Frank, and he answered some questions. He was at 4% body fat for the movie and that log was real and weighed a 100 pounds. That kind of made my day and thought i would share it. Frank is a fitness guru and sells "Shute Shirts". Here's the link https://www.shuteshirts.com/?fbclid=IwAR0fYW0aPCLB4wqM247T6-FdX1Ydue_7fza3I15wOc38nio_E4D-W75189o . Im just curious as to how many of today's high school kids have seen Vision Quest.
  4. So would the format be freestyle or collegiant?
  5. Its amazing how predictable wrestling can be, seeds are almost spot on. But pretty par for course. I would say the biggest bright spot is Aven getting 8th.
  6. They do things to facilitate more matches in a shorter period of time. 1. Most tournaments don't have pre-defined weights. You show up and weigh in and they group the brackets by closest weights to get an even distribution of wrestlers. They don't waste time trying to seed. They don't have huge overloaded brackets that slow a tournament down and they avoid the super small brackets with 1or 2 guys in a bracket. 2. They used modified wrestling rules. If you go out of bounds or have a whistle, you start in the neutral position all the time. It really improves the flow of the tournament. 3. the best thing is they schedule age groups with time allotments. 6 -12 for example wrestle from the slot of 8 to 11. So youre there for 3 hours and done. Then the 12 to 18 years wrestle from 11 to 2pm. You're only at the gym for 3 to 4 hours. Its much more manageable. 4. You don't have to buy a USA wrestling card. No offense, I never bought a card in Ohio because the tournaments weren't sanctioned. And that was fine. It gives you more flexibility.
  7. I think Ersland is making small incremental steps and doing a good job. I think he had the best dual team in years. I hope he keeps the momentum going. But last weeks BIG 10 tournament was disappointing. Still waiting for that break through season to get in the top half of the conference. But I hope that was a blip. Would be nice to see Ersland get his first All-American. Maybe Lydy, Bruner or some else from the cast can step up.
  8. ISWA format doesn't work well in my opinion and think partially responsible for high turnover rate. I still remember the last ISWA tournament I took my son to. Weigh ins were at 6 AM, my son wrestled only 3 matches that day and was on the math for about 5 minutes. We didn't get out till 5PM. 5 minutes wrestling for taking up 11 hours of his and my time. Its just plain stupid, and I quit going to tournaments after that. And keep in mind I was a hardcore dad. Wrestling has to figure a way to schedule it so kids get can compete in a 3 to 4 hour window. Parents just don't like sitting in the stands doing nothing and spending on unhealthy concessions. And theres competition out there from other sports, need to find a better way. Ohio does a much better job of this than the ISWA.
  9. Sometimes in the late 90s they stopped letting d2 and D3 All Americans from competing in the D1 tournament. Im not exactly how high you had to place or how one would get into the D1 tournament, maybe it was just the finalists. I just think it was too complicated, and maybe the D1 coaches didn't like the look of having D2 and D3 guys beating there studs. I remember a guy I used to wrestle a lot in college. His name was Joe Wypisinski from Univeristy of Nebraska Omaha. He was a 3 time D2 all-American at 177 and think in 1991 he took 2nd in D2 but he also placed 7th in the D1 tournament.
  10. I know you mentioned scapula/shoulder being down for the pin. But the middle of the back should be also included for the pin. You still cant ascertain the exact view the ref had, but from the picture the lower part of back looks "pinned" to me. Kind of looks like the scapula is there also but not sure.
  11. We shouldn't be talking about if Viduya was pinned or not, we should be talking about the filthy move that cradle was. Filthy dirty cradle. Reminds me of a J Jaggers shin cradle special. Didn't Jaggers pin a guy in the NCAA finals with that move.
  12. 1st lets keep It that way. To the Chagrin of Galagore, this is the year without a major class wrestling debate. Maybe I missed it, but I don't recall a major discussion. Probably a good thing because it gives the dead horse a chance to recuperate. Anyway, Im saving all my "A" material for next years debate just in case.
