Re: Early Report Card

So far, this team doesn't look as good as last year's. 125 is way up, 157 is a slightly down, 165 is down, 184 is way down and 285 is slightly down. EiWAs will be a four team battle. Maybe make top 20 at Nationals.

Re: Paetzell & Pomrinca get mentions...

A little premature, this article. https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/sports/2019/11/pomrinca-styling-up-success-for-lehigh-wrestling-team.html. If he's in such great shape, wouldn't it make more sense to push the action and try to tire out his opponent than to stand around waiting for something to hap...

Re: Princeton Dual

I had the misfortune of being there. Princeton won all the close ones. Losing LU guys couldn't finish their shots. They should carefully observe Kutler, who finished ALL his shots. Pom lost to a kid whom McGonagle beat rather easily a few weeks ago, if I remember correctly. Isn't this the third time...

Re: Princeton Dual

Maybe, but more difficult because they'll have to finish ahead of two or three very tough teams and not just one. And this is different from how we did it the past two years .... how exactly? Huh? I'm not talking about LU, I'm talking about Princeton and saying that it will be tougher for them to w...

Re: Princeton Dual

[This is the season Princeton has a fair chance to take the Ivy title from Cornell. Probably not so after this season with the returning Olympic redshirts and the way Cornell's been recruiting. This season Princeton has a fair chance of taking the EIWA title. Maybe, but more difficult because they'...

Re: Princeton Dual

Princeton has lots of lineup issues with the two most significant being Brucki and Stefanik. Brucki almost quit the sport over the summer because of multiple injuries so his schedule will be limited and Stefanik is a growing boy with 174 now a distant memory. Ayres probably begged him to stay this ...

Re: John Hughes resigns as associate head coach

Timing is strange, hope his health is fine.....sure leaves a big hole to fill in recruiting and coaching....... Hoping that he got another offer too good to turn down. I don't want to consider the alternatives. "Personal reasons" doesn't sound like another offer. How about Rob Koll?

Re: Oklahoma State Dual

Ok, so the latest on the OSU forum is a guy writing that the doctor who disqualified their 133 has "screwed" lots of wrestlers in LU's Prep Tournament by being too strict. To which others responded that if that is the case, then the dq wasn't the result of animus toward OSU. I'd add that i...

Re: Oklahoma State Dual

Seems to me that whether LU's doctor was wrong or not (and I'd love to know the facts on that issue), Smith was clearly a heavily contributory cause of the default. Since Wilson had made weight the day before, how much of a burden would it be on him to be able to make it the following day? Smith say...

Re: Oklahoma State Dual

Another take on Smith's radio show from a fan on OSU's wrestling forum: "Basically said that the Lehigh doctor overreacted. Reece was skin checked then made weight only to be told 10-12 minutes later that he actually failed the skin check. John was frustrated given that the Drexel doc passed hi...
