Re: Has the Window Closed?

Some quick thoughts: 1) Go DIII and win the national title yearly: Just kidding. 2) I'm continually impressed at what this relatively small school can do on a national level. It's a testament to tradition, commitment, coaching and support. 3) It would be cool to get a few recruiting classes that cou...

Re: D1 football in the fall?

Re: Last chance

TMH makes a good point; I agree with many of TMH's comments: It IS great to play and compete with the Big Boys/Women ... Problem is big wins are relatively inconsistent. It's getting tougher for me to rationalize we preach to our students (and wrestlers) you are here to the THE BEST, period, but in...

Re: Academics

Remember the days when all University average was under 2.0? Gotta be collecting Social Security for a lonnnng time to be able to remember that. My freshman year (1971-72) the all-University GPA was 2.45. One-third of my freshman section went on academic probation ( <= 1.7) after the fall semester....

Re: Last chance

I do not know what the Athletics Department's competitive mission is for its programs. I do know that the investment in DI programs today is significantly higher than what it was in 1980, about when football entered I-AA.

This video reminded me that Burley was IMO the most athletic wrestler Lehigh ever had. He seemed to put himself in difficult positions a lot but always ending up on top. He turned it into an artform.

Re: Mount Rushmore of LU wrestling

For pins you forgot Bevier 12 falls in 15 bouts. (also a 93.3 wl just behind Liebs) Not an NCAA champion, and only competed in two seasons. Henry Matthes was 13-0 career, 7 falls, and an NCAA title. Just wrestled the one year. Bevier still holds the Lehigh record for consecutive falls, 101 years la...
