Off topic/ little Humor

What is Cael/PSU going to do at 197? Is he going to petition NCAA to allow back ups? Is he going to talk about his inner workings of his program on his weekly radio station? Is he going to start thirty different threads talking about the same thing? OR Is he going to make a decision and move on? :D ...

Re: State Tournament Wrestling Pill

As a fan and nothing more so please don’t put more into it. I like the pill as it brings uncertainty and excitement through out the tournament. I will asked two questions for thought. 1. If you wrestled the tournament 5 times with same pill would you have the same champion all 5 times? 2. If you see...

Re: WSAZ 106 JVs

Another post to prove my point. Take everybody advice on here and quit bringing the sport down instead of promoting. And if you are take time off work and spending money then you have have time to get in the fight and not be a spectator. Just saying!

Re: Favorite Venue to watch wrestling in WV?

Let me put my two cents in. 1. It does take a mountain of people to VOLUNTEER to run a tournament like the State tournament. 2. Wheeling's baby is the O.V.A.C and I don't think they want to run two big tournaments. (could be wrong just a hunch) PLUS they run the super 6 up there. 3. The coliseum is ...

As our coach told us seeding is irrelevant. If your ready the cream will rise to the top. If not get back in the room and practice harder. He won a state championship with that philosophy his first year of coaching.
