    NCAA approves shorts

    Have you never talked to middle school kids? That’s their number one complaint. It’s laughable how ignorant you are.

    The system is set up to favor guys who have already proven to be the best in the world. Dake was on the wrong side of that system for years and complained about it being unfair. Now he’s taking advantage of being a defending world champion and the advantages that come with that.

    The ultimate alpha move here is for Ringer to enter the tournament and beat him.

    Askren.......OUCH!

    That strike has nothing to do with Askrens age. That is a one in a million shot by Masvidal.

    I agree. If you aren't going to wear a polo under your singlet then why bother.

    "I can't compete in July because Dr.'s note and lawyers" Wrestle off scheduled for Aug. 17 "You can't prevent me from wrestling in July because Dr.'s note and lawyers" Kyle Dake bringing the lawyers. FRL is pretty much hammering him for this.

    I have no problem with Dake getting a later wrestle-off. I don't even mind him having a warmup match. But how anyone could be ok with one Doctor's note for 1 match and a conflicting doctor's note for another match is beyond me. Anyone who is ok with it, I don't believe this is your honest read. I'm guessing you had a conclusion first and then sorted the facts. If this was going to happen then Dake and USA wrestling should have just said he's clear in July and the wrestle off is in August. There's nothing wrong with that and it requires no deceit.

    If Dake brings home a Spanish Grand Prix title he may finally get the nod in a fantasy matchup with DT. I support this decision.

    Zain - Yanni outcome?

    I really dont see how anyone is accepting of the officiating or outcome of that match. Its like if the Chiefs were running out the clock against the Patriots in the 4th quarter up by 6 and the Pats challenged a call that overturned a Chiefs touchdown from the 3rd quarter, winning them the game. In no other sport would this be acceptable, and yet here we are, with nobody in any position of power admitting that something is wrong. The second match should be re-wrestled, but that's not going to happen. Zane will be our representative. A bunch of imbeciles will continue to run and officiate this sport.

    Singlets look ridiculous and any functional advantage they have are negligible (otherwise MMA guys would wear them). Other than getting pants-ed, there's no downside to shorts and this is a move in the right direction. Hopefully, all teams will follow suit.

    Dake Spain Results

    Link to Mat C stream. You can rewind to all of Dake's matches so far. **Update: I missed Dake's actual 2nd match the first time skimming through. Techs Spanish wrestler 10-0 in 15 seconds with TD and four consecutive guts. FYI: he is the very first match when the live feed kicks in, start of 2nd match is right at about an hour past that (short match so more difficult to find), 3rd match is about an hour past the 2nd, 4th match is ~17 minutes before feed ends (also short match so more difficult to find).

    Iowa has only been second place once since they dropped off in 2011. Second would be a good finish for them.

    What year did USAW unfairly disadvantage Dake in particular? As far as I know, USAW has never altered their procedures to hurt him. As far as Dake potentially being better than JB during the 2013, 2015, or 2017 seasons, I do not think such a belief is based on the facts. Here are the facts: 2013 Dake: 0-2 vs. JB (including a tech) at the WTT finals; 5th place at the Golden Grand Prix JB: 2-0 vs. Dake (including a tech) at the WTT finals; World champ; Medved champ; Sargsyan champ 2015 Dake: 0-2 vs. JB (including a tech) at the WTT finals JB: 2-0 vs. Dake (including a tech) at the WTT finals; World champ; Medved champ; Pan Am champ 2017 JB earned a bye to the WTT finals by winning the US Open. Dake had the same opportunity but lost to JB at the US Open. JB then beat Dake two out of three times at the WTT Finals. I don't see anything unfair here.

    This idea that Dake may have been better than JB in 2013, 2015, and/or 2017 is getting ridiculous. In 2013 JB got a bye to the WTT finals as a returning medalist. In the finals, he went 2-0 against Dake, including a tech. Not close. In 2015 JB got a bye to the WTT finals as a returning medalist. In the finals, he went 2-0 against Dake, including a tech. Not close. In 2017 JB was not a returning medalist. He beat Dake at the US Open to get a bye to the WTT finals. Then he beat Dake two out of three times at the WTTs. There was no question JB was better that year. Yet this myth that Dake may have been better lives on.

    What exactly did JB “milk”? It seems to me he played by the rules, including by winning the US Open in 2011 and 2017 in order to earn byes to the WTT finals. Is JB supposed to reject the qualification process to satisfy his competitors’ fans?

    NCAA approves shorts

    If we do a cost benefit analysis of this, we are sacrificing nothing by making this change. It will have zero effect in the way matches play out. Even if it only gets a few more kids out every year or results in a more positive appearance to a handful of outsiders and casual fans, wouldnt it be worth it?

    Cox scored on a pass-by ankle pick, and then chain wrestled taking a double leg shot and then throwing Bo by for the takedown. Seriously, have you even watched the matches?

    I love how people are bashing on Dake. How insecure are you behind your keyboard while mommy makes you toast. Dake has done more than any of you guys while he was still in high school [and even Jr. High]... let alone 4 NCAA titles at 4 weights [with no redshirt], and oh... moved up to beat a DT Hodge winner and future world champion several times at that. And for $&it's and giggles, he won Worlds last year without giving up a point. But you guys know better than he does. Got it. Real tough guys. Why not just look in the mirror tomorrow morning with crud in your eyes, and say to yourself: "I will never accomplish anything near what he has... maybe I should just shut up while I am ahead..." Trust me... Noone will deeply miss your critiques.

    Dake Spain Results

    Haha...impossible for Ringer to actually beat Dake fairly. It will be because 1. Kyle was called for too many passivities unfairly 2. Kyle was not given the proper score. 3. Kyle was injured even though they tried keeping the heavyweights away from him. 4. Kyle's doctor screwed up. 5. Kyle was screwed over by USAW. 6. Kyle should of got an attorney and sued 7.Kyle is wrestling weight higher because he keeps out wrestling Burros but refs keep screwing him 8. Kyle was more focused on dropping to 74 kg where he is the best wrestler in US. 9. The refs "misappropriated* the rules 10. The refs were out to late and had to be woke up by Koll 11. The refs were drunk. 12. Kyle was on his monthlys.
