Re: Oregon State opening Trn
Actually blue chippers make it and donít make it big all the time. Schools donít always matter. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Ever hear of some of the so called canít miss guys like Sprague, Messner, Geiger, Van Androy, Deluca, Maley, Rogers in Washington, Griffin , Ortiz etc. lots of factors when it comes to College. many of those guys arenít or didnít light the world on fire. Has Sammy C been an all American yet? if you read certain message boards, youíd think all those guys were future ncaa champs or all Americans. Colbray, I think he was a 4x state champs and junior national champ. I wouldnít take a kids first tourney as some measure stick. Heck this may raise some hairs and I hope not in a bad way but Wittlake is still a maybe as far as being a star. . He may be a star and may be a guy that never makes some of the message board crowds expectations. I hope he does.
Most of us probably donít know what a blue chipper truly is. 4 titles? A junior champ? After nearly 40 years of watching D1 wrestling, Iíve seen all sorts of things happen. Every state has state champs, stars and legends. We are 1 state with 5 state champs per year at a weight class. If my kid was still wrestling, Iíd say stay away from the boards. Do not read it son. Heís not though thank Jesus. So Iíll tell the other dads, tell your kid not to read the Jargon. They will eat
You up and spit you out.
