He spent millions of dollars to slander a vietnam veteran for no other reason than he didn't like the man's politics. He represented the worse of those that use their money to control others. 

Comment 26 Mar 2019

In a sport that has struggled so much in the last few decades, super teams are not good for the sport. Part of the reason that few communities get into wrestling is because few have had success. Thie Iowa run was boring and the PSU run is boring as well. To me, the most exciting part of the weekend was Mekhi Lewis.

True story: When I was at OSU, the class I was in was watching a film on on how the brain handles depth perception. It showed a quarterback wearing glasses that altered his  perception; the quarterback then missed all his passes. I said out loud "hey, there's Herbstreit". It turns out Herbstreit was sitting right behind me. 

The next day at role call I learned that Herbie was sitting right behind. Not only did he not get mad, he actually started a conversation with me and was quite kind. I have to say he was a class act.

He was out at her house to drop of his kids. A draconian interpretation of the law resulted in his arrest for trespassing. The reality is that a man was arrested for parking in ex's driveway to drop off his children. Courtney Smith would rather her kids walked across the street or exited from the street than to be logical with her children's father. But such is the bitterness in family court.

Not one of those upset fans are going to give him  a dime thirty years from know if he is in need and his body is crippled (including mind). They are just concerned with their team's season this year.  This is his chance to make what will support him for the rest of his life and he has to look out for his tong term interest.

Gamble was a receiver who stepped up and played corner because E.J. Underwood was getting abused; He was good that played both ways for the rest of the year. With him OSU does not win that game or quite a few others, let alone the national championship. He should have special place in every buckeye fan's heart.

Comment 16 Aug 2018

This issue is so overblown when you consider all that is being alleged right now is Zach Smith parked in his ex's driveway when dropping off his kids. That right there shows you how vindictive this woman is. She wanted to have her kids father arrested for parking in her driveway. Based off of that arrest she was given a restraining order which are incredibly easy for anyone to get. I should know I had two put on my ex in the last year. Everyone that has ever been involved in family court knows how the hole system is screwed up beyond repair.

One big difference between this match and the last one is that Snyder didn't get a bs stalling call in the first. The calling call forced Kyle to wrestle Coon's style and with a doubt affected the match. I will never never understand refs that call a much smaller wrestler for stalling when they are merely being overpowered. Way too many idiots think pushing is wrestling.

Comment 12 Feb 2018

High school has a light heavy weight and I wish college ha one too. I think that if college had a 220 weigh class that Tommy Rowlands would have been a four time NCAA champion and might have never lost a match. With a 220 weight class Kyle is probably never within 8 of anyone. 

Everyone keeps talking about Coon weighing 286. Coon weighed in at 286; for the match he probably weighed in the low 290s. That is a ton of weight to give up! With that Match being in Michigan and the local fans working working the ref Kyle was at a huge disadvantage. The early bullshit stalling call placed Kyle in a tough spot and forced him on the offense against a much larger wrestler who was content to counter. When a wrestler with a 70 pound advantage blocks off and just pushes and overpowers you it's NOT stalling.  Coon may may not have lied like a fish but there is no doubt that he took no offensive risks and tried to rely mainly on countering from his huge size advantage.

The two will likely wrestle again twice. The more they wrestle the more I like Kyle's chance to develop a winning strategy. Next time they wrestle Kyle will probably be more defensive and will chose his shots. He may also work his duck-unders and snaps and spin behind and other strategies where he does not have to go under Coon to score. And hopefully next time he gets a competent ref.

In that aspect it's great buy you're still using compressed lossy music. You can rip to lossless and convert to google play for free and have an online, albeit compressed copy.

Comment 22 Jan 2018

As an audio nerd I have a few suggestions. For streaming I'd go with Tidal. The reason is for uncompressed audio and the huge selection. You can even add Tidal to a Kodi box and listen to great uncompressed music LEGALLY. 

For non-streaming, I'd recommend ripping CDs to an uncompressed audio format such as FLAC or Apple lossless (ALAC).  I buy CDs at a college second hand shop for just a few bucks. The local library has a nice selectin as well. Those two formats can always be converted to the other format with NO audio loss. Then you can archive the collection on another hard drive for insurance. For an Ipod, I’d rip the music to Apple lossless and go from there. Many new car head units will take a USB drive, for a few bucks you can copy all your music to a USB drive and have your entire media collection at hand for any trip. For long trips I down load a few audio books, podcast, and my song collection. It works nice when you’re in an area where the local radio is unavailable or very limited.

It's hard to see ANYONE ever out shining Jesse Owens but Kyle is something special. He, like Jessie, is a once in lifetime athlete. I've been around the sport for over 30 years, and have never seen anything like him, and I'm not sure I'll ever see another wrestler like him again. This may not be Jesse's last home track meet but it's pretty damn close!

I'm at the age where I realize memories are our most precious possessions, and Sunday I plan on creating a new one as I watch OSU's best wrestler ever in last home match.

Comment 18 Jan 2018

After watching Ali shake from years of boxing injuries, I lost me desire to see men purposely try to hurt each other. One of things I liked about wrestling was how you try to control another human without trying to hurt them. I always saw the sport as physical but not cruel.

Comment 18 Jan 2018

We are so blessed to have him as a buckeye, as he is a once in a lifetime type of wrestler.

Coaches will tell you that the third period is the champion's period, similar to football where an even matchup will usually be won in the fourth period, and he gets stronger as the match progresses. Which is a result of his phenomenal conditioning. You ever may never see another wrestler who is that strong with that level anaerobic conditioning. Once again, we're blessed to watch him.

And speaking of watching him, Sunday is his last home meet and it's against Iowa. Last chance to watch a three time world champion at his peak wrestle at him for your favorite team.
