    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?

    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.

    Hey all, I created a video analyzing Jason Nolf's 2019 NCAA Championship run. If you're into that kind of thing, please check it out!

    I'm thinking he may be the next big thing. Like "Yianni" big. As a true frosh, had some fantastic wins at Midlands against AA's. Beat Pantaleo in the process, along with Lugo. Beat David Carr at Schultz that just won 74kg Juniors. The list of very good wins is starting to grow. His 70kg Junior title came with some credence, as he beat the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th place finishers. Now... I know the "different styles" thing is real, and his most recent results were FS. But... Midlands wasn't. The big question is going to be if he goes 149 or 157. 70kg is smack between the two. With Nolf graduating, and the prospect of Yianni going 149 makes me believe that 157 is where he'll start his career. Is anyone else as impressed with Sasso? Thoughts?

    How to stop medical forfeits?

    This way of doing things is cowardly to say the least. It’s crazy in a sport considered to be so tough that the coaches lack courage to let their wrestler compete against the best. These coaches need to stop this pigeon-hearted, soft, and weak practice. Very sad to see the sport going in this direction. How do we change this?

    His win against Pantaleo was after Pantaleo had been so sick he was able to weigh in at 149. He wouldn't have beaten the Pantaleo from this last weekend or the one at NCAAs.

    Very impressed. I’ve always thought he was a better folkstyle prospect than freestyle, so his 70 kg title is a plus, not a minus. I’m also impressed with his attitude and commitment to the sport based on his redshirt season interviews. Seems completely bought into tOSU and wrestling as a lifestyle, and I believe there were some questions on the latter throughout HS. I don’t think he’ll be Yianni big. Don’t see him taking out Green, Nolf, and Deakin on the same weekend anytime soon, which is the feat equivalent to what Yianni just did being only one year older, if that.

    Whoever is the rep at 70 needs to be consistent. I don't think guys have to be at 100% all the time. But you can't be below 90% percent at any time, so to speak.

    Fix and the refs

    Good point. It is a counter-productive habit and it's not limited to OSU. Dake complains constantly.

    I mean, Twin Cities metro area has a greater population than St. Louis metro area... slightly longer drive than from Chicago. It really is baffling how little some of you people know about Minnesota and the Twin Cities in general.

    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.

    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.

    Well congrats to PD3, for winning a very tough tourney. Big feather in his hat.

    Green has won his last match...

    I may be wrong but it seems that when he wins close matches in the end he is behind and scores. However when he is in the lead it is the opposite. It's almost like he goes full on hold your opponent off mode to early, then gives up points. Again I could be wrong but I seem to think there are several situations where he is in the lead and loses in the final seconds. He may need to rethink how he holds his lead if that is the case. It may not work for him like it does for others. Either way I don't think you can back pedal with that much time in the clock.

    The weight is extremely top heavy. Who’s beating Nolf from the field? Deakin, Chamberlain, or Sorensen? No way, it’s Green and Nolf and that’s it.

    The people who weren’t able to get tickets through their usual outlets because of limited availability so they had to get them for outrageous prices through resellers.

    Completely agree with you Jason, tickets are very hard to come by, you really have to know somebody to get tickets. The crowd isn't very young, not many kids. I think at Minneapolis it will look a bit different.

    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?

    There were a number of undefeated wrestlers in the days when freshman weren’t allowed to compete. One such wrestler was Uetake, who also won an Olympic gold medal right after his sophomore year (the first year he was eligible).

    Count the first-MFF at Conference meets as a loss for the purpose of seeding at the NCAA Tourney. For instance, Micic MFF at the Semis, that is 1 loss, not the 3 total, and it is only utilized by the NCAA seeding committee for the purpose of seeding. 1 loss, in most cases, will not harm a wrestler too much on seeding. If he is injured--truly hurt--then he is benefiting by MFF to keep a higher seed and thus perhaps less competition in the early rounds of the NCAA. By assigning a loss, he may drop 1 or 2 spots, and perhaps have a more difficult road. The OP is correct.....no easy solution to a growing problem that many coaches seem to favor for a variety of reasons. The above at least discourages one of those reasons.
