Re: NCAA Tournament to Be Played in Empty Arenas

This is dumb. Anything short of quarantining everyone to their homes for many weeks will fail to stop the spread of the virus. It's inevitable. Cancelling these events might slow the spread of the virus, but it's only delaying the inevitable. If you're old, weak, fat, in poor health or otherwise su...

Re: NCAA Wrestling Brackets

Looks like the boys did bracket pretty well, now they need to perform. 133 is absolutely killer. Inany other year I think Montorie is AA. This year not real sure. He also is somewhat of a roller coaster. Can beat anyone or lose to anyone. Not expecting a whole lot of noise at the NCAAs this year but...

Re: Big 12 Wrestling Trny.

Good day up to this point. Looks like 5 have a pretty good shot of making it automatically to the NCAAs with 6 a real possibility. If that were to happen this would have to be considered a GREAT tournament for the Pokes. Time will tell!

Re: Big 12 Wrestling Trny.

All right men. Just want to know your thoughts on conference trny. this weekend. Will WY have any individual champs? How many will place high enough to get an automatic bid to NCAA Championships? It looks to me like 3 wrestlers should qualify with another 3 as long shots. Thoughts? Locks 133 - Brid...

Re: How "screwed" should we really feel?

My question stems from thinking about the defensive staff getting poached the last two years as well as the general state of good Wyoming coaches leaving the program for more pay/prestige at other schools. Here is a quote from another thread: Michigan State has screwed Wyoming over before. Most, if...

Re: Wrestling Attrition - Time to Panic?!?

I wasn't at either dual, so all my info. is second hand, from someone that was. My source said Fresno performance was bad-not much drive, fight or will to win. Said O. State performance was better, even though the w/l column was not much different. Can you guys that were their confirm/dispute? Just ...

Re: Utah State

Thanks guys. I understand now. I thought the reference was to the wrestling crowd. I must admit I don't follow basketball very closely so wouldn't know about that. In any event this 9:00 pm start time does seem really stupid. Does anyone know the reason for it?

Re: Utah State

I had not heard about this but seems pretty dumb to me. I do have a question about the "..struggling with crowds..." I was not at the Bakersfield dual but my son was. He told me there was a good crowd at that dual. Was he wrong? Am I missing something? Please explain as I live quite a ways away and ...

Re: Wrestling Attrition - Time to Panic?!?

The wrestling team is rolling right now with dominating wins over CSU-Bakersfield and Utah Valley. This is shocking - Wyoming beats Utah Valley 37-9 losing only two matches. The two matches the Pokes did lose were by the best wrestlers (Bridges - pinned and Hastings in OT). Utah Valley didn't wrest...

Re: Cowboys back to Austin 2023

I believe both the Cowboys and MN Gophers have open dates for 2026 and 2027. Would be great to get a home and home with those two schools. Gophers already schedule MWC teams fairly frequently. Agree. Minnesota is a lower tier P5 that would probably be amenable to a home and home as anyone Minnesota...

Re: Bryce Meredith switching to MMA

Best of luck to Bryce. If he can make the wt. cut, and with his length, he could be a force. Will obviously need some MMA training but lets hope for the best!

Re: Wrestling Attrition - Time to Panic?!?

There are a hell of a lot of us that care about wrestling. For those that don't, fine. Shut-up and go fart out your mouth (computer) on other threads. The reason most don't like wrestling is because they were never tough enough to do it and therefore never learned much about it. I am sure that is th...

We all know how tough it is to be a Pokes FB fan. As I sit here this AM I am thinking back to just a few weeks ago and all the optimism and excitement I felt for the upcoming season.

Observation and thoughts

I was unable to watch any football yesterday but congrats. Cowboys! When I was able to check scores I saw where Iowa State hung 41 on Iowa. This is against the same Iowa defense that we couldn't get into the end zone against a single time. Many on here said this defense was the best we will see all ...
