Off-Topic / MOVED: Merry Christmas

before it's really proven in the MMA world.  Joey Davis being the latest.

I like the strategy, may not work, but they seem to have a clear plan of getting top end, young, wrestling talent.

Hard to choose a fave but Willie and Merle singing 'bout Pancho and Lefty is hard to beat.

Off-Topic / Bone Tomahawk

Streaming on Prime if you're a member.  Genre crossing with it being almost a horror/thriller set in a western.  "slow burn" used to describe the story telling and I agree with that description.  Violence was a little more over the top, especially in one scene, for my liking BUT overall I enjoyed it a lot.

Great cast, not a color by numbers flick by any means.

Personally I'd throw up in my mouth a little bit every time I'd see my friend Drew dressed in ketchup and mustard but he can recruit (at a not fully funded school with about as high as admission standards as it gets) and develop talent:
24 NCAA All-Americans since 2005
4 NCAA Champions and 8 NCAA Finalists
9 Top 15 NCAA Team Finishes since 2005
4 Junior and Cadet World Team Members since 2010
10 Big Ten Champions
2015 - Coached only the 3rd 4X NCAA All-American in School History (Mike McMullan) 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd
2014 and 2012 – 9th in the NCAA as a team
2014 Big Ten Wrestler of the Year – Jason Tsirtsis
2014 Big Ten Freshman of the Year – Jason Tsirtsis
2014 Intermat National Freshman of the Year – Jason Tsirtsis
2012 Olympian – Jake Herbert
2011 AWN National Rookie Head Coach of the Year

2008 NWCA National Assistant Coach of the Year
2007 – 4th in the NCAA as a team
57 NCAA Qualifiers since 2005
#1, #2, #6, #9 and #7 recruiting classes since 2005 (pending on which recruiting service you prefer/advocate)

Give Pariano a fully funded 9.9, state school, with history and a club that cares about the program and wants to restore it, and he's going to have the cupboard loaded quickly.

It certainly doesn't appear Pollard cares about wrestling results so I'm sure this won't happen, and I'm sure KJ is a heck of a guy but, as a team, they have not improved since he's been there. Some individuals have, but as a whole that program is a mess and a change needs to happen. I was at work today when I realized today was the dual and I honestly didn't care. I knew Iowa would win, and win big, and that I'd be able to get the results later. That should NEVER be the case in this battle.

I'm not worried about his dismissal in Evanston, and I'm sure others won't be so quick to not worry about it, but that ISU program needs a lift, and in a hurry.

I'd bet a dollar Tito will pull out due to injury but I am intrigued by the one night 4 man LHW tournament.  Can't say I'm thrilled with the idea of 2 round fights for the opening round, and always a danger that injury screws things up, but I like the spirit of one night tournaments. 

Sorry, thought I left the link, guess not.
