  1. Four philosophers are on a train in Scotland, where they observe a black sheep on a hill. The first philosopher exclaims "All sheep in Scotland are black!". The second philosopher says "There is at least one sheep in Scotland that is black!". The third philosopher smugly says "There is at least one sheep in Scotland that is black on at least one side!" The fourth philosopher then says "There is at least one sheep in Scotland that is black on at least one side...at least some of the time."
  2. Ivy schools also don't allow wrestlers to be enrolled in school if not competing without losing a year of eligibility. Logan didn't lose a year of competition to COVID, nor was he good enough to qualify for an Olympic red shirt, so that's two years right there for Arujau. Maybe Cornell can use this as *their* selling point: lots of their wrestlers leave with experience competing and winning on the international stage! Judging by recent recruiting results for Cornell, Lehigh needs to do something more to sell the Bethlehem experience than tout their ability to enroll while redshirting and competing as a graduate student. Those drawbacks don't seem to be hurting Cornell too much.
  3. Got it. You think that he was gassed in a dual meet against Sacred Heart in less than two minutes, because he adjusted his kneepad and singlet and took his time returning to the center of the mat. He did this in all his matches last year, and he then went on to win the U20 US Open and the U20 World Championship despite his conditioning issue. Here's him gassed all of :23 seconds into his first match at the U20 world championship. How he managed to get through the day is truly impressive what with all his conditioning issues.
  4. I'm as big a fan of Shapiro as anyone, and even I have never said he'd be an undefeated freshman NCAA champ. Whoever said that hasn't seen Haines wrestle, for instance. It seems pretty clear that he is a title contender this year.
  5. Shapiro *always* does the "adjust the kneepads and singlet" strategy in all his matches, all the time. I've seen enough of his matches to realize this. Here's Shapiro a couple of weeks ago, 1:30 into a match against Sacred Heart, doing just that (pretty sure he wasn't already gassed). So he gassed in a match against Bryce Andonian, in which he gets an early escape in the second period, avoids stalling and giving up a takedown and gets a late second period takedown and rides out, then gets a TD a minute into the third period, gets 2NF, and rides out the rest of the period? Sounds legit. The ref gave the concussion signal in Shapiro's second *loss*. About a minute in, but hey, he was gassing.
  6. From the rule book (emphasis added): Certainly, Cornell staff has had plenty of concussion experience with both Foca and Ramirez suffering multiple concussions two seasons ago.
  7. Beats me. That is the sign for concussion protocol, correct? Certainly all was not well with Shapiro, right?
  8. What do you think the ref is doing here in that match?
  9. Gosh, people improve. Who might have guessed?
  10. He is hurt, possibly from the end of the Andonian match (he received a leg hit to the leg in the final scramble). Early in his second match, there was a high-speed scramble that ended off camera, followed by the Cornell corner coming over. The ref then gave the "fist to the forehead" sign indicating concussion protocol, which was not initiated. It was pretty clear that there was a head issue after that. Really surprised he was allowed to continue. I'll be surprised if he goes to the Collegiate Duals in two weeks. He does not have a conditioning problem, that is clear.
  11. Why is Griffith a NCAA champ but Carr is only a former champ? Because Griffith was the defending champion when Ramirez beat him, but Carr is not.
  12. Ramirez now has wins over Griffith (NCAA champ), Carr (former NCAA champ), and two over Monday (NCAA finalist).
  13. I'm using Chrome, and I can't see them.
  14. I won my AG in triathlons many times with a margin of victory smaller than my lead coming out of the water. Sucks to be you.
