    According to Askren’s breakdown of the worlds and US Open scoring, the gut wrench is the number one scoring technique out there. Scored more than singles, doubles, any defense or push outs. The rules are great.

    Freestyle Results by College

    Decided to do a little research based on a previous thread. The list includes the wrestlers by school and year they earned a medal - names in bold indicate an Olympic year. Some names will be duplicates due to the fact that they competed for multiple schools (i.e. Kevin Jackson, although LSU probably doesn't deserve to be mentioned). The number in () next to the school indicates the amount of individuals that earned medals. The earliest year included is 1969. Arizona State (3) 1. Saunders Silver 1996 2. Jones Bronze 1995 3.

    I feel that has more to do with it than anything else. The clubs and national competitions from youth on up in both folk and free are light years ahead of 20 years ago and the college and world talent coming out of high school seems to be getting better.

    Because the real reason for college isn't to participate in athletics. Kind of why it generally follows right after high school, unless you serve in the military or a religious mission.

    I believe that several decades ago (1920s and 1930s) before there were eligibility rules, it was common for colleges and universities to bring in “ringers” to play for their sports teams. Essentially, these were athletes who were “hired guns” and some of them played for multiple schools over a period of several years. I remember reading an article many years ago about some very bitter arguments between some Ivy League schools regarding the members of their rowing teams. Rowing was the premier college sport in the late 1800s and early 1900s , and there were lots of allegations about schools bringing in rowers for the season, or even just an important event. These athletes were enrolled, but almost never attended any classes, rowing was a seasonal job for them. Eventually, sanity prevailed and it was decided that some rules were required to ensure that collegiate sports were more of an amateur affair than one in which many “professionals” played, but rarely stayed at one school long enough to graduate. It would be interesting to see which sports stars in many college’s distant pasts actually attended classes and graduated.

    Mark Emmert gets at least $2 million per year for being president of the NCAA, not including bribery. He has to justify his bureaucracy's existence.

    When I was 26-27 I was eviscerating 18 and 19 year olds on the mat, and that was after 7 or 8 years of not wrestling at all. Men get stronger as they age (and more savvy), until they hit their mid-30s. That's why Baumgartner was able to hang around for so long internationally (and winning consistently). I'd say any man in their mid twenties, or older, has a gigantic edge on the kids. That edge isn't gone until he loses his physical edge, which may be a long, LONG time if he takes care of himself. Hell, Andre Metzger at the age of 50ish won a few matches trying to make the National Team a few years ago. Sure, he ain't what he was at 25, but he's a helluva a lot better than nearly every guy in his weight in this country anyway.

    I've noticed if they actually lock something up, whether it be a lace or a gut they are actually trying to complete, the ref gives then a little extra time. But 75% of the wrestlers dont even make an effort. They just get a takedown place hands on the middle of the opponents back and look up at the ref. I think bumping it to 30seconds and actually enforcing 30seconds doesnt promote action, and obviously slows down the match. Would be so frustating for your wrestler to get taken down with 40 seconds left, match tied, but he is behind on criteria and he gets the restart with 10 left.... Sure he could escape but in freestyle standing up is death. As it's currently called if top wrestler isnt working, ref restarts them ~10sec or less, later and we get those great action finishes. I'm running long here, but a hard 30sec count would be a step back in my book. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Are they ever going to get it right. Tried to watch Beat the Streets tonight and although I got to see some wrestling, my screen went blank way too many times. I gave up.

    I'll forgive the omission, but must point out you left out Barry Davis from the Iowa crew. More world level medals than most of those guys.

    This year should be wild.... When comparing Russia vs US 57 - Uguev/Sadulaev are both better than Gilman. I have a hard time believing Fix can overtake either of those two if he makes his first Senior Level World Team. Advantage to Medal - Russia. 61 - Rashidov vs Colon. I don't think this is close. Colon is coming off an impressive Pan Am, but I don't think he's near Rashidov. Rashidov is coming off a 2018 Silver at WC and during that tournament he teched Loma. He crapped the bed against Bonne. Advantage to Medal Higher - Russia. 65 - Chakaev vs Yianni (if he has the spot). If Yianni wins the spot I would say this is a split. That's how much confidence I have in his freestyle game. His first senior level event and I think he has just as good of a chance to medal as a returning bronze medalist. Dude is legit. Advantage to Medal - Split. 70 - Gazi vs Green. Not close. Gazi's better..just plain and simple. 2x World Champ and returning World Champ. Green's better years are behind him. Advantage to Medal - Russia. 74 - Sidakova vs Burroughs. I have to go with Burroughs here. Even though Sidakova won their last/only meeting, I have to respect JB. Advantage to Medal Higher - US. 79 - Gadzhi vs Dake. This is another close one. I'm giving the edge to Dake due to recency and I think he's figured Gadzhi out. Gadzhi pounded Dake at the 2018 Yarygin and then Dake pounded Gadzhi at the 2018 WC. Advantage to Medal Higher - US 86 - Kurugliev vs Taylor. If Taylor is healthy it isn't close. Major advantage to DT. Advantage to Medal Higher - US 92 - Kurbanov vs Cox. Cox is sitting in the driver's seat. Advantage to Medal - US 97 - Sadulaev vs Snyder. Sadulaev has the advantage. Advantage to Medal Higher - Russia. 125 - Khizriev vs Gwiz. I'd give the nod to Khizriev. Wrestled Petro tough last year at the WC. Gwiz showed some toughness to wrestle back through and rack up a medal. Advantage to Medal - Russia. Russia = 5 US = 4 Split = 1 Also, Snyder could beat Sadulaev, Gwiz could finish higher than Khizriev, Sidakova could beat Burroughs, Gadzhi could beat Dake. So many matches could go either way! This year should be awesome!

    This is why Askren is the man. This will be the most talked about BTS ever because he was willing to sacrifice his dad bod to JB.

    Yianni final scoring sequence

    the final should have been either 11-8 or 9-8 depending on whether one of the exposures by yanni at the end was white paddled or not... i could see it either way... free scoring is not complicated... i know plenty of 10 year olds that keep up with it just fine... but, this forum has proven many times over what average really means...

    Better than usual, but still a hack job. Replays during live action causing critical action to be missed. Announcers screaming. Had to re-load 3 times. Clock and real clock not synched. Score on screen wrong. But it was an improvement.

    My only issue was advertising a 6pm start time for weeks ahead of the event and then pushing it back an hour unexpectedly. Stream worked great though.

    I am at the event. Everyone here seems to be having a great time. Not one person is forced to come. Jack and his team are a great group of people. Of course there are people here that are over the top. There are coaches that are not using best practices. I see things that I struggle with. But I see these same things at any youth event I ever go to. There is considerably more good happening here than bad.
