Pull back the reigns sir.

Rein in your keyboard, Fuhr.


HA.  I wish I could blame being under the influence or something.  Alas, just not very smart last night.
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

The key to a title for PSU is the Altons IMO. How they do may vary well determine how PSU does.

Say good night, PSU.

Incorrect sentence structure.

PSU !  Goodnight.

Tournament points based on these rankings:

1. Iowa, 95
2. Minnesota, 93
3. Penn State, 86
4. Oklahoma State, 82
5. Oklahoma, 66.5
6. Oregon State, 49.5
7. Edinboro, 38.5
8. Nebraska, 34.5
9t. Iowa State, 33
9t. Ohio State, 33

How many people would actually consider Iowa the favorites going into this season? As long as they have bonus point monsters Ed Ruth and David Taylor it would take a handful of decent upsets for them to lose the title. But of course I also don't believe St. John is going to win the national title this year which lowers Iowa in my eyes.

Has anyone ever tracked most tournament points by an individual wrestler.  I see Taylor pinning his way through the bracket and setting the record if not tying.

I concur.  Will be boring to watch as no one will come close.  He'll be toying with the competition.

I think everyone agrees that 174 will be the toughest weight class.  After that I'll say heavyweight and then 125.  Heavyweight has a lot of returning big guys and 125 has lots of young talent.

I'm interested to see how Dhesi does at HWT.

The Altons have a "So-So" record at Nationals.  This makes guys like McIntosh all the more important, Q had a lot to say about the last two titles.

If the Altons keep their focus on wrestling this year they'll both make the podium.

Gwiazdowski   should be below Telford. Seems like an imaginary line was drawn in the sand. He is receiving a ton of hype based on his freestyle results and if he is going to magically jump Telford without proving it in folkstyle you might as well rank him number 1.

Right now I am just trying to conceive of a world that Stieber doesn't win a national title this year. Along with Maple and Ruth he is almost a Grade A lock to win outside of pulling a McD.

Crap, I just realized I haven't made my playlist for my radio show tonight.

I wouldn't lock in Maple just yet.  Sammie Henson knows a thing or two about him and will have Houdashelt ready.
Because they stand on a wall.  And they say nothin\'s gonna hurt you tonight....not on my watch.

Next one to say "on the podium" instead of place, will feel my wrath.

LOL Buck.  What's your issue with the podium word?
