    Great!  I last saw State wrestle UNC in Reynolds when Tab Thacker was a heavyweight in the early 1980s.  Think the team had two or three individual National Champions.  Glad to see the 2020 squad doing well.

    Tab Thacker was the man. I still remember the look on the face of UMd’s backup wrestler before he faced Tab. He was wrestling because Tab had broken three of the first stringer’s ribs a couple of weeks earlier.

    Love his passion!

    That was awesome!
  • Thanks for pointing out the bench, I missed it the first time. Makes it that much more enjoyable to watch! I expect (hope) to see Deonte at spring practice here in a few 😀

    My favorite memory of Tab Thacker was the wake he left behind wading down the grassy bank at Carter-Finley to get to a fight that had broken out at the bottom of the hill (if I recall correctly it was an ECU game). The fight didn't last long once he arrived.

    Here is a short bio for Tab Thacker:

    And a longer one from WRAL:

    Tab rode a moped around campus. It looked like a marshmallow on a toothpick from a distance. The tires were under stress for sure.

    Pack whips VT 21-18 after falling behind 9-15 at one point...

    I was able to watch about half the match what a good win with the help of a timely pin.

    Rolling on  to another acc title.  Might win 7 or 8 acc team titles across swimming, cross country, tennis, wrestling, wbb.

    The Pack takes on Duke tonight at 7:00 pm in its last dual match of the season and with a win will go undefeated for the first time in school history. The Pack is currently #3 in the country and with a win will clinch the ACC regular season title for the third straight year.

    It's official, Pack wins like 34-9 or something like that. Undefeated for the regular season dual matches.

    Being spoken of in the same way as Iowa wrestling is saying something!

    Since I'm just a casual wrestling fan, here are some links for other casual fans.  First, here is a link for Iowa:
