    Al Vega RIP

    1952 Big 10 wrestling champion from Purdue recently passed away. He was the wrestling coach and Biology teacher at my high school TF North in Calumet City, Illinois. He was a great teacher and beloved as a coach. Recently though long overdue the wrestling room was dedicated to him. I am sure like many coaches he made a huge impact on his wrestlers life. Heaven forbid if you were of Mexican descent and didn't come out for the team. If you didn't play football he had you out for the Cross Country team to stay in shape. Though he coached in Illinois with his Purdue backround I wanted to add this here. As an aside I did not wrestle in high school.
  2. My son had the privilege of representing the USA in the Maccabiah games in 2013. Luckily for him the competition at heavyweight was a little less than the other weights. It was a competitive team. An ALL American from Brown, Greco US team member , Other D1 or former D1 wrestlers, 2 x state champ from Ohio . They were coached by former All American from Cornell. It was a more than wonderful 28 day experience in Israel for him. If you are Jewish or have Jewish wrestler on your team please show this to him. Tryouts for the last few cycles were in the Cleveland area and I imagine they will be there again so it is rather convenient for Indiana residents. If any one has any questions please feel free to contact me.

    Northwestern's woes

    What a poor showing today against Penn State. What happened with Tsirtsis,tech fall or major to Retherford.

    I know the concern is how Mitch Sliga is doing on the mat but I just saw that he made Academic All Big Ten. Ultimately that is what it is all about. Congratulations

    He along with Tsirtsis did not look good against Illinois.

    Sliga lost 4-2 to Stanford. Can't remember his opponent's name.
