*** Official Youth, High School, College and International Wrestling Thread ***

I can't be the only wrestling fan on this site. In fact, I know I that's not the case. The almighty king of n00bs, Sorter, is a wrestling fan. I figure there could be more.....????

Discuss anything wrestling related:

Youth wrestling: Heck, wrestling in Iowa has a rabid Youth wrestling scene...I lived through it, my younger brother lived through it and my brothers who are 15 and 13 are living through it, well the 13 year old is anyway...he's in high school. The 13 year old is a 7th grader who has been wrestling since he was 5 years old and has accumulated 4 state championships since his second grade year...a total badass. Believe it or not, Iowa has a youth wrestling forum that is hopping...even during the summer. Iowans take this stuff seriously. I'm assuming other states have rabid youth followings, for when I watch my bros at National tourneys, we are constantly running into kids and super clubs from other states that are amazing. Ironically, one of the biggest youth tourneys our club hits annually is the Park Hill Individual and Dual tournament...which to my knowledge is in Kansas City (I've never attended that one). Do any of you have kids who are wrestling? If so, how are they doing?

High School Wrestling: High school and college wrestling in Iowa is big... we are known for it, ask AC Slater. State tournament is a big, televised event at the Wells Fargo dome...you will see probably 10 times more spectators at state wrestling in Iowa then any other high school sporting event in Iowa. With some of the crazy talent I have seen/wrestled against at Fargo Nationals, I am assuming that it's either on the rise or just as big in other states as well... What are your thoughts on some of the high school wrestlers and/or teams out there?

College Wrestling: Hell, you Missourians semi-recently had those Askren brothers. I've never met Max, but have met Ben. He was the celebrity guest at Iowa Grade School State one year...he signed autographs and handed the medals and wall charts to all of the kids on the podium that year, which was cool because my youngest brother won it that year and was able to get his championship singlet signed by him. I was with my brother when he approached him....Askren struck me as a funny, goofy type of dude. I don't know Max, but someone posted his blog on an Iowa wrestling message board and the dude seems like a character. I know there are some Oklahomans' who post on this board. Anyone see Okie State defeat Iowa this past weekend? Iowa's first dual loss of the year. Anyone have any thoughts on college wrestling?

International Wrestling: Any of you have any thoughts on the international wrestling scene? Future Olympians, future Olympic champs, future World champs, Greco, Freestyle, etc.?

Wrestling Memories/General Discussion: Any of you have any memories you'd like to share from your personal experience(s) of wrestling when you were in youth, high school or college? Any opinions on females wrestling with males. Last year, a girl named Megan Black made history in Iowa by placing at state. Do you believe females should be able to wrestle with males at that age? Any thoughts on weight cutting? What are some of the most memorable matches to you? Who are your favorite wrestlers? One match that always sticks out to me is this:



Crazy match.

My favorite wrestler (besides my bros and former teammates) of all time is ironically not an Iowan. I don't really have a favorite team in wrestling...I root for individuals. It's a dude from Ohio that I initially hated because I didn't like the way he conducted himself after a match vs. my brother in the national duals when he and my brother were Seniors in High School, in which he defeated my brother. Kid was cocky. He and my brother both went on to wrestle D1, so I followed him since I knew who he was. I ended up becoming a huge fan of the kid's style...the kid could hit cradles from ANY position. He went on to win 2 National titles for Ohio State...and did so both years as an underdog, for he'd lose quite a few silly matches during the season, presumably due to his risky, but dangerous style that worked well for him at NCAA Nationals. It's a dude named Jeff Jaggers. First vid is what really put his name on the map as a high school wrestler. 2nd vid is his 1st NCAA championship as a Junior, in a match where he was a huge underdog, broke his ankle during the match and gutted it out and won. My favorite wrestlers tend to be the ones who are risk takers or brawlers...not afraid to be aggressive or take chances. I can't stand stallish wrestlers who are successful as hell simply because they don't open up and therefore don't give up points and score their own points by capitalizing on the other wrestler's aggression. Boring.






So what ya got?

Note: I have been posting on wrestling message boards for 12 years and I (and I'm sure everyone else involved with the sport) have heard every wrestling joke (rolling around with men, etc.) imaginable, but if ya want to clown on the sport, shoot... it was inevitable to happen anyways on CP, so have at it!

I've got a premium flo account now. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the pointer!

I'm doing the podcast for our high school Sectional tournament this weekend and regional duals (considering we make it...we will) and Districts. Should be fun, but I've been nervous as hell...not about the podcast, but just about certain kids and whether we get them through to state or not.

I keep on forgetting about AAU districts...will be my youngest bro's last year doing it since he is in 8th grade. It's a tough tourney, but he is having just a beast-mode of a season this year. He's currently at 52-1 with 4 techs, 3 decisions and 45 falls. It's been crazy-awesome watching him do his thing this year. Hope it carries over to high school next year. Ironically, his 1 loss was vs. a Kansas kid named Jacob Beeson...4-2 in OT at the Park Hill Duals. It took me forever to actually learn that kid's name, for I wasn't there...that's like a million miles away from me, but finally asked one of his coaches and the dude knew the name.

Some interesting drama going on for the Iowa Hawkeyes this year. They have been switching off between Thomas Gilman and Cory Clark. Clark evidently wins the challenge matches, but has been struggling to maintain his weight...and Gilman has been compiling some big wins. Gilman took an embarrassing loss to Brancale from Minnesota. Looked like crap. Clark was back in the lineup a few days ago vs. Northwestern and looked solid. I guess it's not a bad problem to have for Iowa. What is crazy about it is the fact that both of them are 4 time state champions...Clark won 4 in Iowa, Gilman won 4 in Nebraska. Gilman is from Iowa, but went to a private high school across the border in Nebraska (Omaha Skutt). The crazy thing is that Clark and Gilman go wayyy back to the AAU days...in which Gilman beat Clark at AAU state in the semis when they were 8th graders in what was a crazy match that I will never, ever forget. Gilman ended up with first, Clark placed 3rd. 6-7 years later and they are battling for a varsity spot for the Hawkeyes.

Anybody going to NCAA championships this year in OKC? I've never been but I hear it's a pretty decent time. I was thinking about finding a day 1 or day 2 ticket and driving up from San Antonio. Any experiences with this event?

No, but certainly something on my bucket list after my son's out of college.

That's pretty easy to do. However, I think Hawks will surprise and finish a strong second. That's really all that's up for grabs. Cael and PSU will win another title pretty convincingly.

Despite their boring wrestlers, Iowa is definitely in a good position. They could upset PSU if all things go right. And next year they'll be right back in the race...unfortunately.

I agree they are boring wrestlers. Tony Ramos is the exception. I used to hate him, now I find myself rooting for him. Love the staredown.

Not a fan of Ramos. Though he does create action that makes for good matches. Loved seeing him get stuck by Joe Colon. Clark at least will bring more than Gilman at 125. Other than that I really only enjoy watching St. John. Guess the guys are really learning a lot from the king of snoozers--Ryan Morningstar

You mean Morningstall. St john wrestles boring matches too. Ramos won't loose another match this season. Write it down.

Morningstar lost his first ever wrestling match in high school. To my brother. Man, I was brother-buffoon in that match...lucky I didn't have some Lisbon dudes wanting to fight me.

I love the guy, but man...like watching paint dry.

Joe Colon is the shit. I'm rooting for him on the college scene, moreso than I am rooting for pretty much anyone.

I've never watched the NCAA championships in person...with my brothers and I being split so far in age, I've always been pre-occupied with the youth and high school scene and have never had time for it. And in college, despite the fact that I was a wild, wild, drunk-ass, party animal...I wrestled and had the time to follow it...but during that phase my attention was elsewhere...either that or I just forgot everything from that phase in my life.

If you want to troll some Iowa fans, go to hawkeyereport.com... easy as hell to troll those guys. I've never done it personally, but have seen countless others do it.

I have a difficult time being exclusively an Iowa fan. The reason being, the Iowa Hawkeye wrestling fan base is just awful...these people act despicable at home events. It's embarrassing to be a part of, really. I just kind of pick and choose a bunch of wrestlers who I root for and don't root for a particular team because of that. I tend to follow Iowa more, simply because it's Iowa Hawkeye wrestling that I am exposed to constantly, but man...that fan base....they are obnoxious...and easy as hell to troll from what I've noticed.

I don't even know if they have wrestling in Florida. I'd have to check.
