    EXCEPT

    The WRESTLING team.

    With so many colleges in Ohio having dropped the sport over the last 30-40 years, if it wasn’t for OSU and the support that they have had for the sport there really is no knowing if there would be any college wrestling in the state today.

    Also....the Bergman kid that wrestled heavyweight for them a couple of years ago is the son of one of my college teammates, and the Jordons are all from a high school fairly close to me.

    IDK might be the best dual I've seen.

    Moore fcuked OSU & put a lot of pressure on Kyle.

    Wow O Wow what a dual

    And Ryan is way too emotional

    The youngest had to sit out a month due to a concussion, went up a weight category due to the inactivity and ended up with a lower seeding for district obviously; well the journey to state continues.

    Your daughter wrestles? That's awesome.

    I tried to get one of my girls to do but she didn't want to :(

    Good luck

    Thanks.

    She started in 8th grade, high school senior now. It was her decision from the beginning to wrestle, in Washington State girls wrestling has been growing steadily this last decade.

    Just watched OSU v. Michigan - Wow what a meet - Both Jordans go down, Pletcher too

    And Coon beating Snyder - Anyone can be beaten! But Coon's size wore Kyle down.

    One month to NCAAs.

    Oklahoma high school state tournament is this weekend. My hometown has 4 in the finals and 1 in the consolation, 2nd place team points. We have been 2nd or 3rd team for several years now. We did win duel state a couple of years ago.

    So its D1 championship weekend & I can't believe that the Big Ten Network isn't showing prelim matches for free - Fcuking BS.

    I have DirecTV, & I get the main BTN channel along with 4 other BTN Alt channels (which typically show no programming - Y IDK)

    So for me to watch the Prelims - I need to Live Stream it via BTN Plus - a Paid subscription

    Bullshit!

    I told them I'm writing my congressman- Fcuk Basketball

    (I know 1st World problems - But WTF - I pay for BTN which rarely shows wrestling - Y do I like sports that most Americans don't follow? - Oh the humanity)

    NCAA's started today - thank God for DVRs

    But two Penn Staters pinned in 1st round a little shocking - Keener and Lee.

    Hoping for a good showing by Lehigh.

    Enjoy the show

    Thanks to OSU only winning 2 of 6 in the semis. That Nickal/Martin match was crazy!

    Some thoughts from Finals - Suriano way too passive as was IMar. Something about Nickal I don't like - too arrogant? IDK. Not a fan of PSU, but I do like Retherford, Nolf, Joseph & Hall. Studs all.

    Sadly Lehigh did not perform well. 10 guys went into the tournament & only 3 AAs.

    What until next year....

    New season

    Just came back from local grudge match

    Easton v. Nazareth - two storied programs but sadly Easton is not what it used to be. Coaching change within the last 2 years and a couple of things must be happening - midgets aren't being developed or kids are going to other schools (one case I know the kid transfered to Wyoming Seminary) sad to see a decades old program falter.

    Lehigh off to a bad start - a lot of starters out of lineup meant Princeton beat them for the 1st time in 50 years and the first time @ Lehigh ever!

    Have tickets to see Blair v. Bergen Catholic - then Arizona State @Lehigh. It's a double header @ the famous Grace Hall.

    And Penn State just keeps on ticking along with their dumb chant....

    We are... Blah blah blah

    Happy New Year

    I’m off this afternoon to watch Minnesota take on Rutgers.
    Gable Steveson is keeping Gophers fans in their seats till the very end of each meet.

    Steveson is a wee bit arrogant, eh?

    I love the Minnesota coaches calling him to stop the nonsense during the match - too funny

    So was Lizak ducking Suriano?

    Good meet

    What’s that old song, “It’s Hard To Be Humble When You’re Great”? Steveson is certainly cocky. He pokes and pokes and pokes until opponent pokes back. The sitting up on the down man until he does something is new; David Taylor used to do the same thing.

    Lizak had a skin issue. MN proposed to cover it up but Rutgers refused to agree so Lizak was scratched. That would have been a fun match.

    Ashnault looked very good. Seems like he’s been around forever.

    Corrennti, Rutgers 197, is a jerk. He barely squeaked out a 1 point victory then ran over to the stands making lewd gestures and taunting fans till Goodale sent him to locker room.
