Bump. Mizzou vs Oklahoma on Thursday night is still not listed by ESPN+, but the team sites indicate free streaming via “Bally Sports Oklahoma” (see asterisked note in OP above).

It was as if Bobby Crawford were wearing green. Poznanski attempted a Gramby while in a half + tight waist, rolled himself directly into the pin.

Sparty converted it into a bow and arrow for extra salt in the wound.

Am I the only one who doesn't get the Bobby Crawford reference?

Crawford maybe the funkiest wrestler PA high school ever saw.
The greatest high school match I ever witnessed in person was when Tashner beat Crawford his Senior year at Regionals. Crawford I think was on 120+ win streak . Crawford redeemed it at States to become 4 timer(2AA ,2AAA)

That's not a Bow & Arrow. He basically lost the Half-Nelson and converted it to a reverse-headlock, then turked his right leg with his left free arm.

A few notes on Lock Haven of late.

Anthony Noto (125), who is 18-1, his only loss coming against Gage Curry in SV at the Clarion Open, beat Joe Fischer again this weekend. Fischer, you might recall, beat Luke Werner in SV at the Clarion Open and then taunted him. Noto appears to have taken over the starting spot from Werner. I'd not be shocked to see Noto on the podium in March.

True freshman Conner Eck (149) looked great going 8-1 out of the gate but has hit a rough patch. Last night he got majored by Brent Moore despite having lost to him 3-2 at the Clarion Open in November.

Isaac Reid, who hasn't wrestled in a few years, has looked really solid at HWT. He hasn't faced a rough schedule, but he's 17-3. Last night, with Lock Haven down 3 points and needing a major to win, Reid gave up the first TD but came back and earned the major in the final seconds. Exciting finish.

Ashton Eyler (165) and Ben Barton (157) are having decent years.

Gabe Strickland (133) is 11-9 but capable of beating guys above his pay grade because he's fearless and wrestles through everything. He doesn't quite have the strength just yet so takes losses in matches where that matters, but he's got a lot of upside and I can see him on the podium in a few years. Really fun to watch.

He was one tall and lanky wrestler for sure. Put you in a cradle from literally anywhere at anytime

*Correction. Clarion
Speaking of old time names, a friend of mine sent me a current Bloomsburg Wrestling Roster and I see a Josh Bonomo is on it.
I'm certain either Rickey or Rockey's kid.
Rickey rarely gets metioned as an all time college great but come tournament time he was awesome. Three National titles when he was at Bloomsburg. His weight cuts would never be allowed by today's rules and guidelines.
Bloomsburg finished 5th in Nationals his senior year.

For some reason I thought he originally went to Bucknell and then transfered.
I guess I was wrong, sorry for the error.
All good!!! Like many of the PA 4xers. His college career didn’t quite live up to expectations

I went to high school with the Bonomo’s, my younger sister was good friends with their sister. Ricky is in Camp hill PA and Rocky is a Pastor near Lake Lehman. Josh’s bio says Lake Lehman so probably Rocky’s son.

They did a wrestling camp I went to. They were hilarious! Did moves in slow motion, rewind, etc.
