Friend from my MS program had me store his huge block O (from his undergrad) that he couldn't move cross-country with, a year before I ended up committing to a PhD here. It was destiny. I offset horrible Sundays watching the Bills with great Saturdays watching the Buckeyes.

Andy, whats your updated 2019 opinion on how/why we come out so flat footed, wrestle with low intensity, lack focus and drive? We've been saying for years now how Cael gets the best out of his wrestlers, it really seems like Tom Ryan gets the worst out of his wrestlers on the biggest stages. Is Tom Ryan simply a good, but not great, coach?

After TTUN I feel like a lot of us were saying this team needed a kick in the pants. 

After this, the coaching staff needs a kick in the pants. They cut to Gene Smith early on, who did not look happy. You cannot get spanked like this in front of 13k at home. Ryan needs to get the ship righted, and fast. Really just unacceptable.

I want an investigative reporting/opinion piece from AV on why this is our schtick the last couple years. Yes PSU is great, but we consistently underperform. So frustrating to watch.

Holy shit. wtf just happened. 

Also, I'll say for the first time ever, Nickal was classy in the win.

They seem to be better mentally prepared

Welcome to OSU wrestling (at least on big stages the past few years). 

Comment 08 Feb 2019

AV is spot on here. We need more guys who are fearless like Smith. Imagine if Hayes wrestled with the attitude that Smith has?

Comment 08 Feb 2019

Wtf just happened? We lost a team point because Ryan threw the brick "too late"? How is that a thing?

Comment 08 Feb 2019

The announcers talking about respecting opponents. Wondering where that talk will go when Nickal inevitably does something boneheaded and they eat it up. 

Comment 08 Feb 2019

Anybody else catch Tom Ryan's spiel before the match about how this match is about love? 

It's kind of pissing me off now that we're coming out so flat footed. I guarantee Cael isn't talking about love to his guys in the locker room. He's probably shooting his guys up with adrenaline, while our guys are holding hands.

Unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against PSU. Not surprised one bit, just surprised it wasn't Nickal.
