Duals need to have more of an impact on national titles. We need to evolve in order to grow the sport of wrestling. Check the attendance from duals and compare them to tournaments (minus postseason).

💯 agree. But how does this help wrestling? And our attachment to the Olympics? I’m not an Olympic hater by any means. I just don’t think they’ve done many of the traditional sports justice by cutting them back to add “sports” that have been around for a minute.

Agreed. But most of the world doesn’t watch wrestling either. They mostly show the same sports over and over again. Refer to my comment about it being commercialized and about the money.

Sam, this is like the argument that a single division state champ makes it more desirable/meaningful. Reality is, it doesn’t. Olympic gold is Olympic gold. With 10 weights or 6. In swimming with where you can have 8 chances or wrestling with barely 1. 6 wts doesn’t make it better

Had both out to CA this year and both great programs with classy people at the helm. Fantastic night for wrestling regardless of winner. An electric atmosphere sells fans and brings them back.

Been saying this for a long time. While a great tradition, modern Games is commercialized and solely about money. We really don’t “need” the olympics, just that it’s always been that way so hard for people to change. Much bigger fan of World’s and changes UWW has made w control

No one. Tournaments are far more exciting... 🙄

Wow. Well done Delbarton on the atmosphere and heck of a win for Nardone in a battle of studs in shoulder braces!

It was tongue in cheek. Just meant I have little faith in people being able to own their problems. It’s always someone or something else.

You lost me at “ownership on the people”.

Exactly. It’s like if he wanted to, he would. Wrestled him a dozen times or more between practice and competition. He always won.

I watched James coach at one practice and could see why he’s gotten so much out of his players. That magic blend of personality to connect with kids, discipline to run a program, and knowledge to allow them to build a foundation for any level. One of the all time greats.

One of the best coaches that I have had the honor of working with throughout my coaching career. James helped me become a better wrestling coach.

What an incredible atmosphere in Raleigh tonight as set an attendance record and won the top 10 showdown with North Carolina in the final moments of the final match of the dual.

It’s everything to me. This is how men are made. It’s easy to show up to beat ass. It’s a different feeling when you have to stand up to the bully. This is what makes great sport. The will to compete.

We showed up for the fight and got punched in the mouth...a lot. But we punched back and kept getting up. And when you walk away really bloody, you look back and see that you made him bleed too. Great dual. Proud of my kids. Beaten, but not broken. And we’ll be back for another.

Show up and compete. No matter who the opponent or what the odds. And it’s one of the toughest things in sports - to be determined to give your best, even when you know your best won’t be good enough. That’s what wrestling is supposed to teach you for life, to never concede.
