    Iran Wrestling News

    Can we just send Hosseinkhani to prison camps in North Korea ? how he can lose in exact same way so many times ? I think it was his 10th time losing a match like that in last 10 seconds only in past 2 years. is there a record about this in Guinness book ? maybe that's his goal his matches are not crazy high scoring where anybody can score at any seconds. I think Gor didn't even touch his leg before the last 5 seconds.

    I think they're all counting down from 6:00 minutes now. I like it this way - counts down to zero like most other sports and it automatically tells which period you're in.

    When Iran goes against Mongolia, you want to see Iran win at the last second in controversial fashion, so that the Mongolian coaches will do their protest! :)

    That was unbelievable. Hosseinkhani worked so hard to get the lead towards the end then gave it right back at the buzzer. I'm actually rooting for the Iranian wrestlers now, of course unless they're going against the Americans.

    Worst Calls, NCAA Finals

    I don't think the no fall call was the most egregious part of that match. I still contend that two of the takedown calls were much worse. JO/Stieber: At that time, I still say no takedown. Rules changed to make it so. Wilps/Brown: I think the official had to call that because he had to review it. He may have wanted to ignore it but once that challenge was out there, he was forced to review it and it was there. The Kent State wrestler that had the wrong score recorded and the NCAA wished that away was pretty bad for a non-final.

    Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray went to Allen High School, the same school as possible Hodge Trophy winner Bo Nickal. I wonder if anything like that has happened before.

    Being tired wasn't his only problem, as I said he is like a kid sometimes, he wasn't mentally ready, in his last interview before the tournament he said he didn't want to wrestle here he wanted to start in an easier competition but that was coach's decision. there is no problem losing in Dan Kolov tournament. at least now he knows where he stands. actually "not great" for Hadi. that was a bad news to me. this is a preparation tournament. I wanted to see him against Geno. the last time in Budapest it wasn't one-sided for Geno (even if the final score was huge for him) for example I believe they sent H. Yazdani here only to wrestle Taylor (I'm almost sure they will send Ghasempour to the Asian Champs) now Yazdani will win the gold easily but he won't gain much from this. we knew none of these wrestlers are in his level. Komeil beat Geno in 2016 and he didn't wrestle much since then while Geno won two world titles after that. I don't think you can compare them at the moment (unless Komeil does something in the competition, we will see him at the World Cup) even in 2016 Geno was the better wrestler IMO but Komeil was smart and made his only attack in the right moment. never been a fan of Hadi but I have to admit he is improved. as you know he had no place in the team after 2016 Olympics team selection story and missed 2017 season completely but when he went back in 2018 he was a better wrestler. right now he is 3rd in the world behind Akgul and Geno and in a good day and if he gets lucky he can beat these guys as he did in Budapest.

    He is such a quality wrestler. Im a huge fan. Heavy hands wear his opponent down, they get flat footed, toe stomp single....just wonderful!

    Check the rules on what is included as part of the scapula/shoulder blades......he was a lot flatter than Brent Metcalf vs. Caldwell, when Caldwell hit that spladle and Brent's shoulder blades were up on Caldwell's stomach. (it was a dual vs. NC State, I believe at Lakewood St. Ed's/quad)

    That was an EXCELLENT TD for a guy that was hurting/tired. You're right, that was absolutely the end of the line though.

    they have different training schedule. they sent some second tier wrestlers to tournaments in Croatia and Hungary and some top wrestlers were in Takhti Cup. even in freestyle Iran sent a very small team of 4 wrestlers. Hosseinkhani will wrestle for bronze. no big change for him. he is usually competitive and his matches are always close . he lost narrowly to Abdurakhmonov but beat Demirtas in repechage. while I gave up on him long time ago he is the best in Iran in this weight at the moment which is a tragedy ! Both Yazdanis and Hadi made it to the semifinal and I think we will see all 3 of them in the final. Reza will wrestle Andriitsev that will remember some bad memories. Reza was on his way to the Olympic gold in London after beating Gadisov when he got injured against this guy. he was better than my expectations today. since Rio 2016 he only wrestled twice in league matches and this is his first tournament after more than 2 years and lots of injuries yet he beat the world bronze medalist and two other tough guys already.

    NCAA Made Big Mistake

    Madison Square Garden every year. Best venue, best city, best bars, best food. Best city for promotional value and trying to grow the sport. Hotel prices don't get jacked up because it isn't even a blip on the radar in NYC. 50% of Finalists and AAs are from nearby states that you can drive in and save on airfare. Better weather than the midwest / great plains states .

    There is some creedence to that. Gotta figure the grind in D1 would be tougher than D2 or D3 just because the level of the opponents would likely be higher. So a D2 kid winning D1 NCAAs would be kinda like Boise State, which plays an utter creampuff schedule in football, beating OU in the Orange Bowl. OU was all beat up after playing in a major conference, and Boise was well rested from kicking the creampuffs around all year. Probably not the best analogy, admittedly.

    One of my grandfathers fought in WW1 (he was a Marine). On the boat over to France he boxed a match against Gene Tunney, who later became a boxing legend and famous rival to Jack Dempsey. Needless to say, Tunney won.

    TBar I give people a hard time, including you, for not being objective but in this case you're right. You just made a comment using several people as examples and before u know it they were all over you like a hobo on a ham sandwich. While I would never dream of telling Kyle Snyder how to train and don't believe that basketball helps with your height, you certainly have to have some agility and other physical traits to be good at parkour and I certainly believe it would improve some skills or physical traits that are beneficial for wrestlers. Whether that improvement would be worth it considering the time investment that would take away from other aspects of training may never be known.

    Predict your team's seeds at NCAA

    I agree with most of your predictions. 125 - I just hope Punke qualifies. Good chance he'll be the 4th seed at MAC's, with 4 spots. 141 - The only way I see him not a 4 is if McKenna or Lee gets beat before the B10 finals, which is quite possible. If Lee and McKenna make the finals, I think they still hold the 2 and 3 regardless of that outcome. 174 - Lewis and Zahid should breeze through their weak qualifiers. I just hope the powers that be don't give too much weight to Amine's pending B10 title and his early season win over Lewis. The 2-4 spots are a bit sketchy. 285 - Not real high on Elam right now. After peaking at Cliff Keen early season, he's only .500 since, with some bad losses in there. Words out on him that if you just keep it close, he'll gas in the 3rd. That being said, he's still an under-sized true freshman who may well be a multiple AA.

    It's absurd to say you shouldn't have an event where there is high interest. Constantly having it in that sewer of a town St. Louis, now thats a poor choice.

    Gabe Dean - all time?

    I'm surprised he didn't go to a D2 school, then. He might've had a chance of starting, provided he could run pretty fast (not a sure bet, I'm guessing Dean was more of a Csonka type guy, slow, steady and nearly unstoppable). But when an Ivy offers a scholly ,that's where you should go.

    Not trying to be insulting, but have you ever gone to D1's? I've been numerous times and I have never gone where I was not able to purchase tickets out front (legal or otherwise) if I needed to. You might end up sitting with another team's fans, but great seats are always available. That being said, I agree with the original post that Pittsburgh was a poor choice.

    While I think that there is a legitimate ticket problem because of the smaller arena, I think a lot of the "issue" is that people have learned that they can request tickets from a bunch of different schools. I bet 2nd hand ticket prices crash the week of the tournament.

    We've added another new feature on a schools profile page to show the history of how a school has performed in the NCAA Championships. This new tab will show the breakdown of the qualifiers/placements, for each weight in a season. Oh, and each one of those values is a link to the wrestlers profile that earned that placement. Gives a great high-level view of how a school has performed in the past. Just go to a schools profile page, then click the "Nationals History" tab, BOOM! Here are some examples to check out: Penn State: https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/60/penn-state/profile Iowa: https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/34/iowa/profile North Carolina State: https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/47/north-carolina-state/profile Cornell: https://www.wrestlestat.com/team/20/cornell/profile

    Bad scramblers

    This probably sounds pretty goofy, but I've always thought that when a wrestler's shoulders are exposed, regardless of whether he's on top or bottom he should be giving up NF points.
