I think next year at nationals we should dress you up like a Coe College administrator, get you a stand in the arena walkway with large paper bags marked with black and yellow letters N - I - L, a name tag reading Lee Larry and a sign on the stand reading parents of AAs not feeling loved, take a bag let's talk.
This would be hilarious

We should put @Chickenman Testa in a booth with a sign saying "I can get you a meeting with Tom."

I don't get it. Why would BK want to come across the country, likely get very little of the 9.9, to sit behind a blue chip 3/4 of his career?

Howard's status wasnt known fully back then, but at best it would have seemed BK gets only 1 year. Then of course we ended up with Drew who on paper was also much stronger. Had Drew come to the program over the summer I think his results would have been better.

I see no reasonable case for this being an oversight, any more so than cherry picking any of the 125 AAs and saying woulda coulda shoulda.
I said my opinion may be a little biased. However, I watched BK wrestle a few times this year and I was pretty sure by January that he had a good chance to AA. He had really improved in a lot of areas, and his finishes on takedowns were really clean. His only losses during the year were to guys who placed ahead of him at the NCAA tournament. It would have been a really good match, but if Robbie had wrestled this year and went up against BK, I would have put my money on BK.

Let it go. I don't sense any regrets here.

For the right amount of bourbon (and right label), this could happen.

Meh. For some strange reason it has skyrocketed much more than most lately. It’s a $30 bottle that is suddenly $100. Way too smooth, not enough anything for me really.
Then again, I prefer the high octane stuff. Barrel proof please.

Oh, I daydreamed about a gag at the midway break of our dual with them. Have 2 wrestlers with knee wraps or something getting chased by the Larry Lee lookalike/dressalike with comically large yellow and black bags emblazoned with dollar signs.

You know Lar would be steamin’ in the stands.

The funniest part of all this is Larry being referred to as Lar, lol 😆

Maybe UNI doesn't offer his major in grad school? Who knows why.
first thing i thought too, though the timing doesn't make much sense. a little late to be switching for school purposes. surprising because uni seemed really good for him. got a lot better in his time there. maybe cael should give him a call? lol

You know the per year scholarship number of 9.9 is only a one year scholarship, right? We don’t get 9.9 four year scholarships each year.

edit, maybe I am the idiot for either assuming he is being serious or for trying to explain…..

It could just be a grad school thing. IIRC, even if you dont plan on wrestling at the grad school, but still have eligibility, you 'have' to enter the portal.
Didnt this just happen with a coach? Guy graduated and was taking a coaching job at a different school, but had a year of eligibility left... so he had to enter the portal, to be able to talk to the other school about taking a coaching position. ?? Am I remembering correctly ?

Did Dellavecchia enter the portal? I thought he just declared he was done with wrestling. I know we kicked the tires after that and he considered it.

Math is not your strong suit!

They get 9.9 per year. Each year starts over. So for example, if RBY got a full ride, he'd take one, for EACH year he is on the team. So the coaches have to figure out how to split the 9.9 amongst all wrestlers that get money, every year. How much each gets is likely a combination of
1. How much of the pool is available/how much is committed to other wrestlers,
2. How much other scholarship $ they can get through need based/merit, grants, etc
3. How talented they are and what it took for the coaching staff to secure his commitment.
3a. How much money their family has and how much they are willing to take on vs. the scholarship money.
4. And now, NIL money to at least some degree.


Clear enough?

Did I miss anything?
