    Let’s just stop for a second and look at not just how impressive it is that these three are going for their 4th AA honor, but that they’ve literally been beating each other up the last 3 yrs with them each placing top 4 of the same weight. Wow! 174 - Zahid Valencia (3,1,1,?), Mark Hall (1,2,2,?), Myles Amine (4,3,3,?)

    Teasdale at Iowa?

    I love this time of year as well because TBar comes on and portrays the views of 2-3 homers on Hawkeye Report as representative of the entire fan base. If you actually read without an agenda, most of the hawkeye fans are talking about 100-115 points next year which MIGHT be good enough to win it with Penn State potentially not having their usual big point scorers. 1. Has anybody predicted Teasdale to place? Most predicted him to not even make the lineup. The closest thing that came to it was speculating IF he can beat out Murin and Renteria, 2 guys unanimously considered to be at least fringe AA threats, then he is also a fringe AA threat. 2. Already addressed this idiocy. 3. Most of the posters on HR have stuck with the general line of "Penn State is the favorite until they lose." Why do you feel the need to do this every 2 weeks? Insecure?

    The Mt Rushmore topic

    If you follow wrestling personalities on twitter you’ll see where a good universal “chat” has gone on since Spey put out his picture of Dave Schultz, Baumgartner, JB, and Smith on the ‘mt Rushmore of freestyle wrestling’. I like those four. Who you got?

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    There are plenty of knowledgeable wrestling fans that believe wining Jr. Gold is extremely difficult and certainly harder then making a USA world team final. Then factor in how Pico essentially got a bye in the semis against a severely injured wrestler that tossed him around like a rag doll the previous time they met and I believe your opinion is rather dubious. But hey you keep hanging from Pico's jock because he beat Zain a few times back when Pico was essentially training as a professional while Zain was splitting time with folk style and going to college classes.

    It's amazing Pico inspires such debate. He was an exciting prospect years ago. That's the end of his wrestling story.

    Wrestlestat has Cenzo beating Amine 6-5. Cenzo is 5-0 against common opponents whereas Amine is 3-1. Wrestlestat has Amine beating Dean 7-6. Amine is 2-1 against common opponents whereas Dean is 1-2. Can't figure how to compare to Foster atm. I know it's there as a feature, though.

    Yes, he’d be VT’s first 4 timer. I was concerned he might not get his third last year at 74. He didn’t dominate like at 65 and had many close matches. But he gutted it out. I suspect he’ll hit the weights hard this summer because it was obvious he couldn’t horse the bigger guys around. I’d be shocked if he doesn’t get the 4th. He’s money in March.

    Didn’t Bo tech PD3 the last time they wrestled? It wasn’t too long ago, I think prob around the time Downey was trying to grad transfer to Iowa.

    Is there a deadline to declare an Olympic RS ? Is Eierman the only one who has stated he will take one thus far ?

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    QWow! We have gone round and round on this topic saying nothing. Lets try this: 1. NOBODY is saying Pico was not an elite wrestler. He was extremely good. Emphasis "was" 2. To continue to wrestle at an elite level you MUST continually train/compete IN WRESTLING year after year. 3. If Pico would have kept wrestling he FOR SURE would have had a shot to be on our US team every year. 4. If he comes back to wrestling exclusively (While MMA does involve some wrestling it is not the same as being a wrestler and only a wrestler), he has every chance to become a member of our national team, make world teams and win medals. 5. There is NO WAY he could walk out of the MMA gym, step onto a wrestling match and pick up right where he left off. NONE! 6. If he keeps getting knocked out, he may not have a choice as to his future. 7. I hope he comes back to wrestling.

    Since the dust has settled, I've come to believe that some USA Wrestling higher-up in the challenge jury decided to uphold the takedown to avoid the appearance of another Yianni/Zain situation. In Gilman/Fix, the officiating crew followed three-man-mechanics properly, the IOWA staff threw the brick relatively quickly after the points went up, and the call was correct, but they denied the challenge because upholding it would have changed the winner with little to no time for the second week in a row.

    Teasdale at Iowa?

    How good is Teasdale advertised? who says he's not walking on. I'm not saying he is but everything about teasdale is weird. Coincidentally his name autocorrects to "tradable".

    Racial slurs? Are you referring to “the Jap” comment. I don’t think that was meant as a racial slur. If it was 1944, maybe, but I think it was more referring to the person’s place of origin. Only say this because saying because without context he is being painted to be a racist.

    Self delusion thinking he could flip a switch and beat world level wrestlers after being out of the sport this long. He has an inflated sense of himself.
