College / Re: NCAA Cabinet Says-----
« on: September 14, 2012, 10:31:11 AM »
I did get a good chuckle from Koll and Moyers comments after the NCAA tabled it. They basically said "yeah we need more time to discuss this."

I wonder if Mo bonked their heads together after that.

where was this at, rock

from what i gather from the live stream, Minnesota beat Wisconsin in the true 2nd dual to make the final bracket.

the weird part is that Utah-Texas was the only true second dual being shown on the dashboard.

i sat around waiting for the Minn-Wisc dual to start but it didn't show up as being wrestled. i didn't know it started until i checked the live feed and it was already at 145.

the score on track (if you checked the bracket score) was only up to 106. and actually, still is.

Nike can suck it

Very eloquent.....  And we wonder why Wrestling Fans are considered Neanderthals ... At 29 years of age, and 10.711 posts per day, one would think ...... OH ... Never mind. :-[

It's exactly, this kind of blind, misdirected hatred, that has hamstrung College Wrestling since Title 9 arrived on the scene. The University of Washington, and prior to that Washington State, buried their heads in the sand and did absolutely nothing to preserve the wrestling programs.  Totally off guard, with no preservation or funding plans, what so ever. 

It's ironic, that OSU, the ugly step child of OU .... Is still alive and well, and building a solid endowment  base of funds. They are not out of the woods as of yet, however they are getting closer and closer. 

It wasn't until the programs were flushed down the toilet, did we ever see any efforts to fund the programs at  UW and WSU. Granted we never thought the proportion prong would be the fall back position ... in the early days. OU had plenty of lead time to prepare...  YET did not.

The last figures we got from WSU was 13M, to fund both womens and mens wrestling, as they also need new facilities as well. And over at the UW, you can find absolutely no history nor indication, that Larry Owing ever wrestled there.

It's as if, wrestling never existed.

What is frustrating is ... We have so many Kazillionaires, Billionaires and Multi Millionaires in the NW, and not a single one of them is a former wrestler, nor avid wrestling fans.

A sugar daddy or two would sure be welcome.



 
If you dont know that Phil Knight was a huge if not THE catalyst in the demise of the Duck wrestling program then you arent much of a fan of college wrestling at least not a knowledgeable one.
Agreed.  If you cant blame a big corporation for your problems, who should you blame?

deflection at its finest.

you're on that sparkilian stuff....always the contrarian.

I thought you were going to teach me a new word, Willie.  Then I realized Sparkilian was made up and was disappointed.  I'm not sure of its origins at this point.

I'm not ALWAYS the contrarian!  However, I do have my reasons for being sympathetic to homosexuals, but I'll save you that because most of you probably don't care and it'd be too long to type out.  And I'd probably come off sounding preachy.

VAIS - being for LGBT rights and not supporting nike are not contradictory measures. just because nike started a non-profit doesn't mean we should support them. at the same time, not supporting them does not mean we don't support LGBT rights.

that was sort of convoluted. but you get my point.

hating nike doesn't mean we hate gay rights.

you're a smart dude. i don't understand why you think we should support nike simply because they printed a tshirt. there's other (more important and effective) ways to support LGBT. and nike printing a damn tshirt doesn't do anything to change the fact that they dissed wrestling.

JB, isn't the CAA having a meeting about this as we speak?

as for Mizzou, from what i hear (which really doesn't mean much; it's all hearsay) the Big XII is salty enough at Mizzou to not allow them in as an affiliate member.

ive also heard of a conference realignment that, should it come to pass, would be pretty neat.

one of the downfalls of trackwrestling is that it relies on the table workers to input data accurately and timely (although it's not that difficult)

99% of the time it's not a problem. but sometimes you get a collective group of volunteers that don't know what they're doing.

last winter at the hershey duals, they had all the college kids names jacked.

yes, because message board posts define us  ::)

nike CAN suck it.

you wanna support them? fine.

i won't.

will it hurt their pocketbook? nope. but that's beside the point.

it's about principle.

i believe they could have done more to save Oregon wrestling,

and i believe they could have it re-instated today if they gave a sh!t .

but no, they'll just continue to sell wrestling gear and make money on the sport.

of course, you can feel free to disagree with all this.

it's my perspective and my choice to not buy their products.

wait, so because Nike started a non-profit supporting LGBT, im now supposed to feel ok with buying their products?

 ::)

whatever. gimme a break.

don't turn this against JB. i completely agree with him and won't be buying nike either until they do something other for the sport than make money off of it.

hate away!
