    Iran Wrestling News

    Out of the 40 wrestlers to be sent to senior and U23 worlds Iran had one finalist and one gold. Ghasempour is an incredible young wrestler and would be the favourite against anyone at the 86 outside of Taylor and Yazdani. One of the coaches, Jokar, talked about the results and i'm not sure if he is delusional and believes what he says or he's just talking to make it seem like they did a better job. He claims they could have got 4 golds. Sadeghi 61 - Yes, the robbed him in the semi final vs America. This is what happens when you have no lobby in UWW and go up against a country that does. However it has to be said that Sadeghi is a horrible wrestler. I have no idea how this guy won junior worlds twice and not even with much trouble. I'm not sure what his style is. If it's defensive why does he give up points at crucial moments? If it's offensive why doesn't he do anything the entire match unless he's about to lose? They have given him a lot of chances over the past few years and I think after this tournament it is enough. No way he would have beat the Russian if he made the final. Ghiasi 65 - Higuchi has to be the smallest 65 I have ever seen. Jokar claims Higuchi apologised to them after the match and admitted Ghiasi should have been given 2 points. Ghiasi then lost to Russia 6 - 0 for bronze. Higuchi won the gold over Azerbaijan 7 - 4. Shahbazi 92 - The Russian took him down in the last seconds to win on criteria. I'm not sure what they are complaining about. It looked like a clear takedown to me. The Russian then lost to Azerbaijan in the final. 125 - Taheri controlled the match against Russia for six minutes and did nothing with it. When you control a guy for the whole match and move him around the mat if you can't get one takedown then you deserve to lose the match on a last second takedown. They claim the Russian should have been disqualified for punching Taheri.

    So they have this huge border that takes up 1/3rd of the screen and: It doesn't tell you the name of the wrestlers It doesn't tell you what period you are in It doesn't clearly differentiate between the team score and match score. Good gravy folks, get it together...

    125- Millhof (ASU) WBTF Koontz (tOSU) 18-1 (5-0 ASU) 133- Pletcher (tOSU) WBMD Kline (ASU) 16-6 (5-4 ASU) 141- McKenna (tOSU) WBMD Crooks (ASU) 13-0 (8-5 tOSU) 149- Jordan (tOSU) WBMD Maruca (ASU) 18-8 (12-5 tOSU) 157- Hayes (tOSU) WBMD Pagadillo (ASU) 4-3 (15-5 tOSU) 165- Shields (ASU) WBD Romero (tOSU) 5-0 (15-8 tOSU) 174- Valencia (ASU) WBD Campbell (tOSU) 6-1 (15-11 tOSU) 184- Norfleet (ASU) WBF Smith (tOSU) 6:ish (17-15 ASU) 197- Snyder (tOSU) WBMD Harris (ASU) 14-4ish (19-17 tOSU) 285- Singletary (tOSU) WBD Daniel (ASU) 3-0 (22-17 tOSU) Ohio State without Martin and Moore due to U23 and did not start Mead at 125 by choice. Thank you PAC 12 Network for broadcasting. Enjoyed Robles on the broadcast but whoever was with him called non existent points, sequences, and scores and didn't seem to know or explain rules at appropriate times. Thought Pletcher, McKenna, and Jordan wrestled as expected. Hayes seemed content to lose by one until he scored two with about ten to go. If Shields is the gate keeper to the bottom of the podium in Pittsburgh than Romero may be fighting to be that guy in Minneapolis. Valencia is surgical. Campbell had no offense but pretty solid defense. When he got out of position, Valencia made him pay. Thought Smith looked ok weighing in at 174 to wrestle 184. Thought he was going to get two going out of bounds in the second. Norfleet up 3-2 at time of fall I believe. I think TT has a decision to make at some point this year between Smith and Campbell. TT is a loyal man so if Smith wants to wrestle in March he needs to keep grinding. Surprised at how well Snyder looked at 197. Hoping that Singletary can find some more ways to set up his offense. Three minute dance in the first, escape and back to dancing in the second, 40 seconds or so of riding time with a cross body ride, more dancing and then two to seal the deal late in the third . I guess I expected more today and got less but a win is a win. With that said and after sleeping on Singletary, I think I have to give credit to a first year starter, on the road, with the outcome of the dual on his shoulders, and assert that may be why he wrestled conservatively.

    Fix vs Gross/Lizak this weekend

    I'm on board with making duals matter, but it wouldn't have made a difference last night. They were going to get blown out with or without Gross. Injured or not.

    I'm having flashbacks to Randy Moss. Incredible talent but may be difficult to contain. But no doubt about it, we're in for 4 years of excitement!

    I love Lewallen and hate that he got hurt, but Gfeller picked up a great win 9-3 over Thorn.

    Takes a whooole lot more than that to get me “triggered” my friend. Just opening the door for you, and very predictably you walked right in. We all have choices. In this case despise the millennials, or allow them to show for who they are. The latter is much more entertaining on a Sunday, particularly when they think they’re fooling people. Have fun!

    We have to start thinking about Shakur Rasheed and Anthony Cassar as more guys that Sanderson "developed" at Penn State. I think both are already more dominant than Jordan Conoway ever was, if not yet more "accomplished". Rasheed was P4P maybe around 60 or 70 and Cassar wasn't even on the radar map before he committed to PSU.

    I assume the coaches want him to be well prepared, regardless of seed.

    I'm running out of hands to count the number of times I've seen stout Mongolians make it look like one of our usually dynamic guys has no interest in scoring. It always feels like it's down to 25% balance/footwork and 75% hand control. Martin couldn't set up anything of substance at all. Sadly, this weight is not one Mongolia does well in internationally and Ganbaatar is down the pecking order a couple slots. Not a fantastic loss in terms of quality of opponent. Hopefully Martin learns from the several times he was made to look "freestyle" silly in his two matches and comes back stronger. He would be so fun to watch as a true freestyler if he can grow into it.

    If you are a fan, duals matter. Giving the home crowd something to cheer about. When your school hosts and Iowa, Penn State, OSU and the like and somehow does well or steps it up big and wins - it matters. To the fans, it matters. It is all about the NCAA Tournament only to those with a legitimate shot at placing near the top. Most of the fans will never, ever attend a National Championship session. They will attend a dual or maybe even a tournament. Duals matter.
