*** 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!

Ya see, real rasslin' doesn't produce crybaby little biatches like that.

rico 01-15-2013 12:24 PM

Lol, wow this was a hit. Are Sorter and I seriously the only ones on here affiliated with or fans of REAL WRASSLIN?!?! I'm starting to think so because if it's one thing I know about real wrasslin' fans....they love to talk about real wrasslin.' In fact, even outside of wrestling meets....you run into a real wrassler at the bars and you are very likely to talk real wrasslin' with them. So if there were fans on here, I'm sure this thread would get a couple bites by now. Dannnnng it.

I think I've seen someone else post about their son wrestling in HS.

Oliver was absolutely nasty against Iowa. Watch that match on Flo. Would have loved to see him vs Dake when he was at 49.

Additionally, I'm picking Taylor to upset Dake at NCAAs.

I loved watching Jaggers. Dude was ****ing clutch.

Also, this man was nasty. To bad he got too big for 66kg and then got hurt :(

I can see Taylor pulling it off. I think I told you that one of our high school coaches/best family friends got to know the Taylor family real well and keep in touch consistently... with that said, our club is always pulling for the kid. Taylor is so technically sound...and deceptively strong.

There is something about Dake that I do not like...maybe there's just something about Cornell that I don't like.. I don't know.

Kind of sucks for these two that it appears that Jordan Burroughs will be a constant barrier for them to make the Olympic team.

ESPO!!! Funny thing was we had a heavyweight on my team in college named Nick Esposito who always claimed he was cousins with this cat....he wasn't. Dude had a reputation for telling tall tales. Esposito was pimp shit.

For some reason, to me, Teyon Ware seems to emerge, go into hiding and then re-emerge.

I can't let this thread go a complete page without this guy being mentioned. I don't care if he was Russian. Total freaking animal. One of my faves ever:
