    Yarygin 2019

    I saw a video from not to long ago of SnyderMan saying that he was planning on going to the Yarygin. He has gone to the last three, so I don't see any reason why he wouldn't go.

    Well, they were 4th in greco, but the freestyle was not what we would expect. I would also like to respond to an earlier comment that Armenia is a weak Caucasus wrestling nation. They finished 6th in greco with what could be seen as a down performance (Aleksanyan's injury hurt their point total, and they did not bring a full team). They are a nation of only 3 million and are severely underfunded; hence you see so many of their guys heading to countries like Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, and even Brazil. Also consider these medalists of Armenian descent: Stepan Maryanyan of Russia, Gevorg Sahakyan of Poland, and Aik Mnatsakanian of Bulgaria. Armenia itself had 2 medalists, two 5ths, and an 8th. No slouch at all given their circumstances.

    Coon takes Silver

    Great run by Coon. Greco needs a stud to rally the program. Let's hope this is the first of many medals for Adam.

    I mean, this was expected. Different levels. Still blown away by Coon’s success

    Coon takes Silver

    Senenov is really good. He destroyed everybody except Nabi. So maybe Coon's only the 3rd or 4th best in the world. Still pretty damn good for somebody who's been wrestling folkstyle for the last 13 years for the most part

    Illegal drugs coursing through his veins? He didn’t take an illegal drug. Your bias is showing. Stop lying. you sound like an anti pot activist from the 80s. He tested positive for an amphetamine, which is legal out of competition. It was still in his system when he was tested for in competition, which made it not allowable. It isn’t illegal. it isn’t a steroid. It has zero impact on his performance on the mat. He is likely to end up in prison because he took a legal drug and had tattoos? Ok then buddy.

    Why is this joker named after a Turkish/ Ottoman type of person? I bet he doesn't know what a "Bey" is.

    Except Chlebove was badly injured in the match, so injury default loss (not a fall). Not so amazing...

    Coon's pinning move is just shear mass and the inability to resist it. You can't make anyone into that at any development program (outside of Putin's program). I'd have to see many more examples before stepping off on the idea folkstyle development is ideal for anything other than folkstyle.

    At some point, talent trumps technique. The problem with our Greco program is that it is not attracting enough elite talent. Obviously, our most talented wrestlers are competing in D-1. That being said, as a former Greco wrestler, I don’t know how we attract more elite talent to the discipline given how awful I think the on mat product currently is.

    Coon (and HWT in general) is such an outlier that I don't think you can apply that level of success to other NCAA wrestlers. But yeah let's have more NCAA guys try Greco...

    Until ALL THE COACHES get on board with supporting the All Star Match you are going to have people ducking, diving and hiding from competition. This is just like the dual match national championship in that everyone needs to participate or just cancel the events. You have all the major players talk about trying to promote and grow the sport of wrestling but then some of them fail to support the All Star Match or the Dual National Championships. Just like a politician they have a tendency to talk out of both sides of their mouth.

    Thielke...ouch!

    I agree with LemonPie but this is also Thielke being Thielke, Almost all of Wisconsin wrestling fans had him pegged as the next 4X NCAA Champ, when that blew up it was Davis fault at Wisconsin, It was Forced PT last time he wrestled, he likes to listen to himself talk to the media and it is ALWAYS someone else's fault, It is time to move on!

    So Hall lost in the NCAA finals because he was seeded 2nd? If only he was the #1 seed he wouldn't have been taken down 3 times.

    Disagree. Case in point, Barlow McGhee's progression was very linear, and people still "clown" him.

    What an absurd thing to whine about. Life as a PSU fan must be hard if your beefs are things like this.

    I heard Zain might be going. Hope he runs into and kicks Oliver's butt. Oliver has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mt. Rushmore. Maybe it's the illegal drugs still coursing through his veins. The guy is likely going to end up either in the MMA or in the Big House and just be a bloody footnote or another tatoo-ed exaggerating storyteller. You can read his pent-up frustration in his words and posture; no deep self-control. Won't survive against cold-blooded Eastern Europeans. In fact, he won't get out of the US trials --- yes, a prediction.
