    Man, Downey beats a 4x AA and a past NCAA Champion and now people are trying to downplay Martin's career so they can't give Downey credit. What is wrong with you people?

    I completely agree. I think during his time in college because you had Snyder, Dake, and Taylor he was not recognized for his ability. Also if I'm not mistaking he never redshirted. Yet he was a 3x NCAA championship. His only losses if I'm not mistaking are to Snyder, Mclintosh, Wellington by DQ, and one other person his true freshman year. He had like 4-5 loses. He was also a sensational freestyler, beating Snyder in Fargo. He qualified the US for the Olympics when it had yet to be qualified, and won bronze. Then he beat Dake and Taylor. Went on to win world bronze. Then won world gold. So in essence he is the only person on team USA to have wins at some point over 3 of our other 4 current US world gold medalist. Cox is no joke. I don't get how so many people think he is so likely to get Beat. Yes, Bo dominated college. So did Dake, Taylor, Zain, and Ringer. It's not that easy to come in and knock off a world champ right out of the gates. Plus J'Den is what, 25? He is hitting his prime, not coming to the end of it.

    If she never wrestles another match, she has nothing to be ashamed of. She doesn't owe anybody anything. The future health of her brain (especially in light of all the long-term CTE damage being discovered in high-level athletes in contact sports) supersedes everything else. Thanks, Helen, for repping our country and sport so well.

    I believe the, "concussion stuff" was pretty serious. Even if she never wrestles again, she was great for USA wrestling and she was great for Women's wrestling.

    Just go to mat side weigh ins. Eliminates all the other stuff like times and certifications that have been adjusted forever. Step on the scale, show you made weight, then step on the mat and wrestle. Use a big digital display so everyone can see it. If you're cutting too much weight you won't be able to perform.

    Well, we watched him launch Hefflin for what would have been a touch fall if they existed and yet here you are, still talking trash because Martin "only won NCAA's in 2016". The dude just won the US open in spectacular fashion. Give him some credit.

    I think people are underestimating Green. He’s a two-time medalist. To put that into perspective, none of the NCAA stars who represented us at 65kg have medaled in 12 years. Life goes on. Many people improve even after college ends. Green is one of those guys. Nolf is a stud. But so is Green.

    Did anyone think.....

    Burroughs was a little too cocky and arrogant? Or maybe it was all show? This was an exhibition and in my opinion JB was trying to prove something(that he didn't have to prove). Why wouldn't he be able to handle a guy who hadn't wrestled in years? I didn't like the push off the mat in the first minute and thought it was "bush league" and some of his trash talk I found too much. I almost feel like Burroughs feels slighted by all the attention MMA gets vs wrestling and he had to tell everyone how good he is. You have a guy like Askren who is doing wrestling a huge favor by participating in this event and handled himself real well. I almost wished he would've called Jordan to the Octagon so he could show his superiority. Now, before anyone jumps all over me, I love JB and just giving my opinion that he could've been a little more modest in the whole event.

    Maybe this is stockholm syndrome since Flo essentially has a monopoly on wrestling coverage and I am captive, but I enjoy the whole crew.

    Quickest "breaking news" ?

    Randoms don’t have to vet their info. Blind squirrels. It’s a close-knit sport, so even those of us who legit cover it can get beat by a friend of a friend. Hearing something and posting it without any blowback doesn’t mean it’s consistently reliable. Especially when you live on social and can delete all the times you’re wrong. The social accounts for the usual suspects are faster than websites.

    Man what convoluted system for picking the World team. You need a flow chart to follow the process. I don't see the point for having a US Open and then a WTT and then a final X. One of those steps should be eliminated.

    Maybe he's already on ASU's campus and has discovered other things to be interested in. Wouldn't be the first time.

    Let’s begin the Cox/Nickal discussion now

    Not enough people are giving Cox, world champion, enough respect. He beat Dake and DT to make teams in the past and they had years of FS experience in them already. Maybe the next time they meet, if they ever do, Bo could get him but the advantage is Cox's 100% this go around

    Putting a weigh in before finals will make them less exciting. Guys will still be tired and not hydrated. They will also refuse to move up. The finals are so exciting now, they shouldnt F with it.

    Yianni is the second coming of Houdini. His defensive contortions are crazy.

    The naysayers seem like the same crowd that complained about NYC and how it was going to be a terrible spot because it was too expensive, there was no where to park, you had to stay further away to find places that weren't busy, crime, (insert excuse here) ... et al. Basically, if anything is different from the way you like it, you're going to complain. I personally welcome the thousands of first-timers who will then become multi-timers because they have the opportunity to get a ticket and attend this coming season. Plus, the food and beer and music scene in Minneapolis is outstanding. If you don't come, then you're going to miss out, and that's on the naysayers, not the venue.

    Is Yianni the Second Best Ever?

    Uetake had closer to 20 matches per year, with both a conference tournament and NCAA tournament. He’s also the only wrestler in OkSt history to go undefeated. Coupled with an Olympic gold before his junior year, if that’s not enough to get on an all-time list, there really is no point to an all-time list.
