Frantz (very smoth wrestler out of Hughesville, PA, compeing for PSU) reportedly made the remark at the head table, before putting on his anklet, "This won't take long." In the first period Frantz took a single-leg shot on Schalles, but brought his trailing leg up too close and, as I recall, Schalles hooked up a cradle through the trailing leg and put Frantz on his back. We PSAC fans were up in the stands going crazy! Clarion head coach Bob Bubb was laying flat on the mat, trying to see the fall better and yelling at the ref, and I think Neil Turner also was in Wade's corner, but I can't picture what Neil was doing. Anyway, finally the official slapped the mat and it was over. Wade had this way of simply being incredible.
I understand that Wade Schalles, while still on the mat and shaking hands with Frantz did remark something to the effect, "Right - that didn't take long." -Stove Pipe
P.S. As I recall, Wade didn't place that 1971 season at the NCAA's, losing to kid from Ohio U in quarters then Ohio kid lost, and Wade was out. Wade, who first matriculated at East Stroudsburg, was under NCAA rules that he got to compete in NCAA three times, and 1971 was his first time. Then Wade was NCAA OW in 1972 and repeated NCAA title in 1973. In 1974, not able to compete again in NCAA tournament, Wade made statement in PSAC's by pinning Shorty Hitchcok, who then won the NCAA College Div tournament and was OW at the big NCAA Tournament. Wade was definately fun to watch and fabulous.
