International / Yianni from 0-9 to getting a guy cautioned out.
« on: July 12, 2019, 10:17:02 AM »
I remember when Taylor flat out broke Yazdanni in the world cup but short of that i can't remember the last time I saw a wrestler just completely destroy another like that.  I know that Snyder's Olympic semi final was something similar but I don't think that the other guy in Yainni's match could even move at the end, and to be honest it didn't look like Yianni was really applying that much "pressure" to him.

College / Eastern Oregon University adds men's and women's wrestling
« on: January 12, 2016, 02:05:32 AM »
Eastern Oregon University in La Grande Oregon is adding a Women's wrestling team and reinstating their Men's team beginning next season.  They plan to hire one coach for both teams.  This is great news as it brings the total count to 7 colleges in Oregon with wrestling.
1. Oregon State--Corvallis
2. Pacific (Men's and Women's)--Forest Grove
3. Southern Oregon (Men's and Women's)--Ashland
4. Warner Pacific (Men's and Women's)--Portland
5.  Clackamas Community College--Clackamas
6.  Southwestern Community College Men's and Women's)--Coos Bay
7. Eastern Oregon (Men's and Women's)--La Grande

Here's a link to the official EOU article.  I'm probably more excited about this addition than any other I've seen.  Eastern is my alma mater and serves an area of the state that produces a lot of high quality wrestlers but has zero wrestling opportunities for people after high school.

Coaching and Technique / After school wrestling program for K-6
« on: October 06, 2015, 01:00:09 PM »
I'm starting an after school wrestling program at our local elementary school soon, it is NOT a practice and it will be the first exposure that many of these kids have ever had to the sport.  There is no other teams in the area (kids in high school have to dive 40 miles to a neighboring town if they want to wrestle).  I'm looking for ideas on how to introduce kids to the sport.  I want to teach them some basic techniques and how a match works.  Again this isn't a team, but an after school "Educational" opportunity.  Other programs that run concurrently to my wrestling include sewing, cooking, acting, homework help, reading, writing. 

I'm really looking for some fun games to play for a while where the focus is on having fun, while staying in the world of wrestling.  Most of the games I used to use when I coached were mainly conditioning.

What other advice might you have?

Who's watching the medal matches on ESPN3?  Predictions?  Can Burroughs pull it off and bring home the gold?
