I don't necessarily disagree with anything you are saying. I'm just commenting on the Flo videos from March of this year where he did not look very good on his feet, in my opinion. If he wasn't a...

Chief,

First of all, I'm glad any time the Illini get a commitment from an Illinois state champ. I see a kid who needs LOTS of work on his feet. This seems surprising given that he is a product...

Man, that is going to be an absolutely killer weight class. Unfortunately for I-mar, I don't see him winning that class over either Burroughs or, more likely, Dake for the next few years. Dake is...

If pursuing excellence is the goal, then if I'm the Illinois AD, I make an open offer to either Kyle Dake or David Taylor to give one ofthem the wrestling head coach's job once they retire from...

Maybe it's time for JB to retire and let I-mar take over. He's already had a tremendous career.

I like Cardani a lot and Byrd could be great. Don't know enough about Zaccone just yet or most of the other recruits. As I said above, Abraham has potential given he won a state championship and...

It's too early to predict anything for Abraham, particularly since he's only been wrestling for 4 years. Any kid who wins state after such a short time has potential. I would like to see what he...

Agreed. It's hard to make any assessment of the Illini's record without knowing what the probable lineup is going to be, particularly at 149, 184, 197 and 285. It seems like OSU, PSU and Mich. are...

That was pretty clear right from the beginning of this process. The challenge was too late and I'm surprised that the officials entertained it. Yianni should have won that match in regulation, as...

It happens that most of the recent "generational talent" has come from the Northeast (Pa. and NJ in particular) section of the country and will be around for a bit longer. Perhaps 1 or 2 guys from...

The team needs Luffman and at least one Braunagel in the lineup desperately. The rest can be worked out later.

I-mar can hold his head high after these 3 matches with one of the greatest freestyle wrestlers the USA has produced. He fought Burroughs toe to toe and looked like he belonged on that stage. He'll...

It would be poetic for I-Mar to beat Burroughs, the man who kept Poeta from 2 NCAA titles.

I-mar's style just seems to baffle Nolf. Nolf can't get his offense going at all. He should probably take lessons from Vincenzo Joseph, who had I-mar's number with that inside trip.

No question there was something going on with him last year. Whatever it was, I hope it's in the past. He has too much talent to wrestle as poorly as he did. Same with Mike Carr. He was not...
