College / Princeton v Cornell 1PM Est
« on: February 09, 2019, 11:33:51 AM »
Princeton seeks to knock off Cornell from end its 17 year reign on top of the Ivy League dog pile.  It's one of the few times you can catch Yianni and Brucki

#3 Brucki gets #11 Honis at 197.  Brucki looked horrible against Rutgers with a taped up elbow. He's vulnerable in this one.
Lots of tossups, 125, 165, 174, 197, 285

It will be streaming on ESPN+ @1 PM EST. If you are not subscriber, it's offering a 7 day free trial, then $4.99 / month, but the subscription can be cancelled at anytime within 7 days including soon after the match if you so desire.

Majors Kolodzik with 2 backs x 2

College / Chris Ayres
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:17:14 AM »
Lots of chit chat about what Dresser is achieving at Iowa State.  Meanwhile, what Chris Ayres is subtly accomplishing at Princeton remains hush.

His first two years, an ugly 0-35, but he's been able to attract top tier talent with the huge brand at his back, and is turning Princeton into a top ten team. A lot of these kids may well have gone to Cornell.

How long will it continue until a B1G or B12 entices him away?  Or will he wait it out for an opportunity back at Lehigh. (could be a long wait)

ESPN wastes an hour televising a cornhole tournament.

Other Sports / Mariano Rivera to the HoF

Wow, 100 %

Think of all of HoFers that didn't warrant a 100% vote in the eyes of the baseball writers. 

Can'y believe someone not voting for any of these guys.........

Hank Aaron 
Ted Williams
Joe DiMaggio
Bob Feller
Ty Cobb
Babe Ruth
Christy Mathewson
Lou Gehrig   (a special election was held the winter after his announced retirement for health reasons.  His election count was never recorded but it would be hard to believe someone would not have voted in his favor.)

Others that could have been 100%ers..........

Cal Ripken Jr.
Tom Seaver
Steve Carlton
Johnny Bench
Carl Yastrzemski
Willie Mays
Mickey Mantle
Nolan Ryan
George Brett
Ken Griffey Jr (missed by 3 votes)

College / Lehigh Healthy Again ?
« on: January 12, 2019, 06:49:24 PM »
NR Lehigh over #11 Cornell 19-16

Lehigh had a little help with Cornell injury defaulting at 157 for 6.  Still, a good win.

Other Sports / Didn't Expect That

Even when Alabama was down by 28 at the end of 3, it was expected they would make a shock and awe run..Clemson just kept shutting them down.

Saban - expects national championships

Swinney - appreciates national championships.

Swinney is a 'Bama grad.  How much will Bama put up to pull Swinney back into Tuscaloosa when Saban finally retires?  $15,000,000 ?

....and I betcha he turns it down.

If you haven't seen the MInni phreshman phenom, Rutgers v Minnesota dual on BTN 3 PM EST

College / Southern Scuffle
« on: December 31, 2018, 11:45:37 AM »
Penn State pulls 7 top seeds.

285 - may well see wrestle off No.2 between  #1 seed Cassar and #2 seed Nevills.  Winner will likely be the starter for the remainder of the season.

165 - an all PA final in Marsteller vs Joseph could be interesting.

Over the course of the tournament we could see match ups that amount to a Penn State vs Oklahoma State dual

Wrestlingref - Officiating / Length of Hair Violation
« on: December 22, 2018, 10:27:55 AM »
Linked below....

The Ref involved is in this controversy is in the NJ Wrestling Hall of Fame and a top ref that officiates the NJ State finals.  He's been around the block and knows the rules.

He gave a wrestler the option to cut his hair / dreads, or forfeit.  Presumably a hair net or cap was not available.  Not all of the details are in, presumably the hair length exceeded the allowable length.  One question that hasn't been answered is if the ref advised the wrestler during the locker room inspection, and was ignored or first advised at mat side.  I suspect it was matside.  The wrestler opened the season elsewhere wrestling several days prior without incident, and was allowed on the mat without a hair net.  That doesn't mean the prior ref's didn't miss the violation, if there was one. The video doesn't give a clear indication if there was a hair length violation.

A lot are making a racial accusations out of this and NJ is investigating as a civil rights violation; however, they are likely ignorant of wrestling rules on hair length that do not exist for other HS sports.  Maybe, maybe not, or is this just enforcement of a rule violation?

I'm posting as  FYI since no one likes being the target of controversial headlines.  Personally, the issue should have not arose mat side, having been addressed in the locker room.

We all read some story at sometime which detailed an event, a decision, some action that was so absurd, to the point of being unbelievable.

Herewith a dedicated string for posting those stories. and the initial har-de-har-har....hopefully we'll generate a barrel of laughs which we can all use.

Can You Really Get Sick from Smelling Dirty Socks?

37-year-old man was hospitalized for chest pain, and was diagnosed with a fungal infection in his lungs — an infection that his doctors attributed to fungal spores that he had inhaled from his socks. Reportedly the gentleman developed a habit of sniffing his socks each day after work.
