I resolve

I resolve to move down at least one weight class this year. I really shouldn’t be a 5’7” heavyweight. I’ll probably have to cut out the ice cream cones at Carver Hawkeye.

I resolve to yell, “What’s he doin’?” only once a meet.

I resolve to care about the growth of new wrestling programs like Grand View, California Baptist, Jamestown College and Baker University as much as I care about the ones that get dropped.

I resolve to convert at least one new person into a wrestling fan (perhaps one of my sons-in-law).

I resolve to attend more high school meets.

I resolve to meet more of my online friends in person (National Duals anyone?)

I resolve to quote Tom Brands no more than once every two blogs (even though he says some of the most interesting things in wrestling).

Finally, I resolve to not take myself too seriously. I’m just a fan who writes a blog about the “world’s oldest and greatest sport”.

Happy New Year, everyone. May it be healthy, joyful and profitable.

Shoot me an email at We're definitely interested in adding your blog to our site; if you'd like to drive traffic back here, just link to it from your college fanz blog and say something like "For more non-collegiate wrestling info, check out 'The View from section GG'"

I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy the new year!
