Vern,

Without seeing the evidence, nobody can really authoritatively comment on whether or not Lance used EPO or testosterone. He probably did, but doping has been rampant in that sport for...

Mckajc,

The Christian Brothers have done a fine job at 99th and Pulaski over the past 50+ years. However, it would be inaccurate to rank Brother Rice in the same category as the other 3 schools listed above....

I have refrained from commenting on this topic because it is essentially impossible to get everyone to agree to a defined set a criteria for what is or is not "home grown".

With that said,...

There are many different styles of coaching, even among successful coaches. I am not sure that any of us are in a position to judge what is best. In the end, it is personal opinion. In addition,...

Disclaimer: I cut a fair amount of weight for wrestling in HS and more than I probably should have in college. However, that was 25 years ago and there are thankfully better safeguards in place...at...

Interesting discussion. The University of Illinois is a fine academic institution that our state should be proud of. However, to categorize it as "great" is probably a bit of a stretch. Like all...

Restling,
