    Yeah, it's ****ing GROSS, man. I went to NCAAs a couple years ago, saw Lizak in a hallway and went over to ask him to autograph my program. When I got close enough I saw it was just his recently shed skin. Not a total loss, though. I made some excellent boots out of that skin.

    Everyone knows Lizak starts to shed his skin heading into March. Understandably some teams will be freaked out during this process.

    The following is Mizzou's Press Release for Friday's Dual at Ohio U. Of Note : 1) Colby Smith is listed at 133. Read into that as you choose. 2) For Ohio, it appears that Cam Kelly will assume the 141 starting role from Kyran Hagan. ================================================================================================================================================ COLUMBIA, Mo. – Fifth-ranked Mizzou Wrestling travels to Athens, Ohio, this Friday to take on MAC foe Ohio at 6 p.m. (CT). The dual is Mizzou's first since going a perfect 4-0 at the South Beach Duals from Dec. 29-30 in Fort Lauderdale. The Tigers carry a 30-match dual winning streak into Friday's dual as the team sits at a perfect 10-0 during the 2018-19 season. Ohio comes into Friday's dual at 2-2 on the year. Mizzou and Ohio last met on Dec. 10, 2017, at the Hearnes Center as the Tigers earned a 36-3 win, claiming nine of the 10 weight classes. In fact, Mizzou has won all six duals against the Bobcats since joining the MAC for the 2012-13 season. The closest Ohio has come to knocking off the Tigers was a 25-18 decision in Athens on Dec. 13, 2014. Over the last three meetings with Ohio, Mizzou has outscored the Bobcats, 98-19, winning 25 of 30 bouts. Below is the lineup that Coach Brian Smith will send to the mat Friday. As many as five freshmen could be in the lineup for Mizzou. 125 – Dack Punke (6-4) vs. Shakur Laney or Trevor Giallombardo 133 – #9 John Erneste (12-2) or #18 Colby Smith (6-2) vs. Mario Guillen 141 – #3 Jaydin Eierman (15-2) or Allan Hart (9-5) vs. Cameron Kelly 149 – #14 Brock Mauller (20-1) vs. Alec Hagan 157 – #19 Jarrett Jacques (18-5) vs. Zac Carson 165 – #13 Connor Flynn (13-3) vs. Colt Yinger 174 – #4 Daniel Lewis (15-1) vs. Logan Stanley 184 – #15 Dylan Wisman (13-5) vs. Hunter Yeargan 197 – #20 Wyatt Koelling (12-7) vs. Aaron Naples/Nate Hall 285 – #16 Zach Elam (15-5) vs. Zack Parker

    Depends on your definition of "marquee recruit" I suppose. What I meant by that was true blue-chippers--top 15 to 25 or so overall recruits, depending on the year. Those are the guys that you'd expect would be able to step into a lineup as true freshmen and make this sort of impact. Elam perhaps proved that he should have been considered a part of that group, but not until after the fact at Junior World's. Flo had him 54th overall. If I recall correctly, Intermat and TOM had him slightly better, but not by a ton. Mauller wasn't even ranked as a top 10 recruit at 149/157, let alone a top overall guy. Flo had him 73rd overall. TOM had him 15th at 157. These are good recruits, no doubt, but look at the guys ranked around them on the 2018 big board. How many are starting, let alone looking like AA contenders? Within 40 spots of Mauller in either direction north or south on that list I see 1 other guy, and that's Elam. That's why what the Mizzou staff is able to do is impressive.

    Today, Saori Yoshida announced on her Twitter that she has officially retired from competitive wrestling. For the last few years she has mostly been converted to "athlete coach" of Japanese female wrestling so it isn't surprising, but it is still big enough news that a breaking news articles and TV clips popped up in Japan. Rio Olympics will forever have a special place in all American female wrestling fans, but as an American living in Japan for the last few years, I just wanted to give her an official farewell message to the single most decorated female wrestler of all time. 13 consecutive Gold medal winner at Worlds (a guiness record), and a record 206 consecutive victories in individual matches. She has only 3 losses since the beginning of 21st century. 3-time Olympic Gold medalist...and one Silver. She genuinely seems to like teaching her juniors so she might officially convert to a fulltime coach, or become a T.V. commentator or who knows...either way, best of luck to Yoshida and her next career! Now the question is whether or not Kaori Icho is going to compete in next year's Tokyo Olympics or not...

    One among many of FLO's false or misleading claims (to put it lightly) that Spey defends. I could easily share many more. Erin Phillips <erin@flosports.tv> Dec 26, 2017 at 8:15 PM I passed along the information you shared with the wrestling team. As far as your second question regarding comments, those will be coming back to the site soon (including all old comments. Thanks and have a great new year, On Fri, Dec 22, 2017 at 2:46 PM, FloSports <no-reply@wufoo.com> wrote:

    Would Rivera have beaten Lee if he'd only been born with half a left arm, no right arm at all, and two legs so abnormally short that he made Chance Marsellar look long-legged? Would he have beaten Lee if he was only born with half a brain and a terrible hunchback and if his testicles required a special sack sewn to the outside of his singlet to keep them out of sight from public viewing?

    Completely disagree. You WILL still have Zach Rey(s), Dustin Fox(s) and even Brock Lesnar(s). For the most part, the quicker, smaller, more athletic guys will still be pursuing football and other sports. Plus, even Snyder took a loss to the resident "lumbering giant" in Coon. It is simple physics. A strong, full sized 285 that can hold position is a strategical nightmare for your "new age" 285's. Unless they can have Snyder like gas tanks and attack late in matches, they will always have serious disadvantages attacking, especially finishing on, the full sized 285's. Everyone always complains about lack of "shots" at 285 without really understanding how difficult/dangerous it is on a multitude of levels. We are seeing a recent influx of guys so talented that they are able to transcend the normal, but they will prove to be the exception, not the rule.......

    Stoll #1?

    I wouldn't rate him #1 even if he were 100% healthy. He has 3 losses to the top of the "smaller heavyweight" type wrestlers over the past 2 years, and two of his main competitors this year are smaller quicker heavyweights. Now, he did beat White in SV last year, but White is improved at this time. Then there is Gable Steveson who I don't think he could beat on his best day. Add in the way he has looked so far this year and it is hard to imagine him ever even being 100% this year. I'll be somewhat surprised, maybe even mildly shocked, if he even stepped on the mat with Steveson. If he wrestles that match and wins I will be the first to acknowledge my being wrong. Don't think that is going to happen though. Time will tell.

    I lost my father at the end of my sophomore year in high school. At the time, Tom Ryan was the head coach of Hofstra. I regularly attended their matches. Over the summer, going into my junior year I attended a tournament on Long Island by myself since my dad used to take me and coach me in the off-season. Tom Ryan was doing a clinic with the help of the Hofstra wrestlers. I had a brief conversation with Tom where I told him that I was at the tournament alone (he didn't know that my dad passed away). He made sure I had a Hofstra wrestler in my corner for all of my matches. It meant the world to me at the time and is still something I think about to this day when I watch Ohio State matches.

    Plus the dropoff after the top 10 per recruiting class is significant. To put it another way, almost every coach would choose 1 top 10 recruit rather than 2 recruits between 25-50. For missouri, their success rates seem much higher for the 2nd and 3rd tier recruits, but I haven't run the numbers for them

    First off he's not the highest returning placer. Also this argument assumes guys wrestle their schedule and it assumes that only losses can dent a ranking and wins can't help it. There are many flip outs on this board based that are largely based on a guy wearing a black and gold singlet. This isn't one of them.

    I think Lizak's gastank issues are at play here. However, if this were the NCAA tournament, I'd pick Lizak. He seems to have all his issues straightened out by March every year.
