Two observations. (1) Ayala isn't the next big thing and (2) Why do rasslers, like Woods, choose to go with either corn rows or long hair, only to fight their hair more than they do their opponents? I remember when Opening Seonds KO Askren tried to introduce corn rows to us all and he looked like a mop by the end of his matches, during that short experiment.

Deep thoughts, indeed.

As a PSU fan, you have to be worried about Facundo after that terrible performance at the scuffle. He didn't look anything like a Dave Schultz award winner. Past and present PSU stars (Nolf, Nickal, Retherford, Joseph, Brooks, Starocci) all showed big-time promise in their redshirt year. Facundo looked soft to me. On a positive note, Michael Beard looked like a beast before he was injured - I hope it's nothing serious. He's a future NCAA champ.

Eager to see the season unfold for Woods of Stanford and of course Keegan O'Toole of Mizzou.
Congrats to both on Scuffle titles.
Also, congrats to Hunter Bolen of VT and Cam Caffey of Michigan State. Both are talents to watch.

I noticed that Hendrickson does look like a fairly ripped, lean heavyweight, so maybe this is true. I know a local, retired Air Force vet who told me that the Air Force can never really be very competitive in football because the AF has a cap on how heavy their cadets/students can be, simply because of weight restrictions with flying.

It's hard for me to doubt a 20+ year retiree, and I could have also misheard that it only applied to those who want to be pilots, but I'm wondering about the vaildity of this.
