Willard and Marion?! I'm from Marion, and my mom is a native of Willard. Small world!
TennBuck, when were you at MVNU? I was in the class of 2003, and I'm also in Nashville.
Yes, because they do not care about their seed. In 2015, the Cavs were a 2 seed and made the finals. Also, the Cavs were a 2 seed in 2007 while making the finals. Home court advantage is not as strong as before. LeBron also led Miami to the finals as a 2 seed in 2011, 2012 and 2014. Plus, the Cavs were a 1 seed in the East in 2009 and 2010, and did not make the finals. Saying all that, I have serious concerns about this team. But being a 1 or 2 seed is a minor issue.
4 people: Pat Smith, Cael Sanderson, Kyle Dake, and Logan Stieber
I started yelling at the TV "Don't act like a dick!" I can't wait to see Jordan or Martin get revenge next season (depending on weight class changes by PSU or OSU).
Very disappointing. Penn State's wrestlers have been very classy under Sanderson. I hope Hall and Nickal do not start a new behavior trend for their program
I'm introducing my girlfriend to wrestling this weekend (she will have to learn to tolerate it, since I coach middle school). Such a frustrating match to watch, as Hall stalled his way to that title.
That lift and slam seemed like a copy of Hulk Hogan slamming Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III.
They do not. Plus, many wrestlers don't wear headgear in practice. Cauliflower ear is a badge of honor in wrestling and other combat sports.
Jason, you'd win that argument. I love watching Tomasello wrestle, because he is always moving, mean and aggressive. I try to teach my wrestlers to have the same intensity and effort.
Any Mitch Hedberg reference gets a +1
I'm not fully opposed to this, but usually my middle school football team has a game on the Thursday before Labor Day. I'll have to set the DVR (and shut off my phone)!
I logged in just to give you one upvote. I'd give 100 if I could.
Since Buckeyefan4742 already mentioned Dan Gable, I'll mention another legend: Cael Sanderson.
An absolute legend. It is difficult to explain to people who do not know wrestling what a giant Gable is in our sport.Greatest coach, and maybe the greatest wrestler ever.
"Tilt of the cap to River Valley, but I could never show my face in Marion again if I didn't back the Prexies in a knife fight."
Yes DJ, but will you ever be able to show your face in the G & R after you back Harding over River Valley?
That's gold Walt! Gold!
Go Tribe! I'm not sure they can beat Chicago, but I'll be hanging on every word from Tom Hamilton the entire series.
Thank you Walt. That is perfect!
But, I did find the keys eventually.
