    Is this a trick question? You said it when you said Cox was worried. It's on this page. You are flailing about in so many arguments saying so many dumb things that you can't keep track of them.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Actually it’s a HORRIBLY thin argument based on cherry picked and very limited results including results from accomplishments of wrestlers after 19 in NCAA competition which Pico would forego to go straight into MMA. So, cadet gold doesn’t count. Junior Silver and Bronze, in back to back years, don’t count. Making the Olympic trial finals at 19 doesn’t count(while winning 1 out of 3 and actually out scoring his opponent). Senior level tournament medals while in High School don’t count. But, freestyle and ncaa results AFTER 19 count for the other guys even though Pico stopped competing. Brilliant, compelling “facts”......

    I was referring more to away duals. You know what schools have a heavy scale. There's no "check" scale. You get off the bus and weigh in. And that scale could be heavier than the one you know in your home locker room.

    Not uncommon if you've wrestled before. You hear from your more experienced teammates which scales are "heavy." I guess this happens at this highest level too. This is not a Burroughs problem, and that narrative is bothering me. This is a scale calibration problem. Simple as that.

    Downey = Cox Cox has wins over Taylor, Dake, Snyder...multiple world medals including gold. Downey made the team in a perfect storm of randomness. Idiotic

    Pico is a phenom at getting wrestling fans to talk about his wresting phenomness.

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

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Well its good to know Zain only lost to 0 time junior world champ pico, instead of Phenom Pico, over and over again. On the senior level (which trumps juniors) Pico made the finals of the Olympic team trials, which is better then most of those guys have done on the senior level. So basically, only 2 people on that list should be on that list, with Fix tbd. Pico losing to yazdani in the finals of worlds doesnt make him any less of a wrestler then any of the guys you mentioned, outside of Snyder, and Cox. But Cox started his domination on the senior circuit much later then picos attempt.

    Cox and Bo have many things in common, other than their body shape. Both intend to win and will do anything to make this happen. That is why I love both wrestlers. They demand of themselves perfection. Bo finished folkstyle a few months ago: let's see where he is at in a year. Cox is amazing now. Both are highly ranked. A win win for fans of wrestling!

    I also believe that Cox is our best chance to beat Sad. That being said styles make matches. While he may have a better shot at beating him than Cap, he also has a better shot at dropping a close one along the way, I think?

    Way too Early 2020 Olympics Team Picks

    I believe Olympic Trials are all one weekend. Challenge tournament day 1 and best of three finals day 2. World medalists would sit in day 2 finals and wrestle winner of challenge tournament. There isn’t a separate best of three (like Final X) after the trials. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    In 2014 Pico went to Europe and beat Safaryan...the 2013 senior level world champ. He had just started his junior year of high school at the time and wasn’t even shaving yet. Definitely not a phenom.

    i also don't think Nickal would smash Downey. Looking forward to this match up. If it happened this week, i'd take Downey.

    I have a scale from 1-10 on how much people annoy me. My father in law is a 10. On the distain scale Downey is a 10, I’d give DeSanto and Suriano 8s and Bo is about a 6.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Sometimes your actual grasp of wrestling itself is glaringly BAD. If you stuck to the argument that he simply wouldn't be able to step right back in and win, you would be on solid ground. But, acting like he wasn't a phenom is straight up brainless or simply uneducated. The kid was winning Senior level medals while STILL in High School, beating guys like Safaryan. Non-phenoms DO NOT do that while in High School. Also, you act like winning Junior Nationals multiple times is "hasn't won anything since he was a cadet", while also lumping a Junior World Silver and Bronze into that same category. So Pico wins Cadet Gold in 2013, Junior Silver in 2014, Junior Bronze in 2015 and then loses the 3rd match(best of 3)in the 2016 OLYMPIC Trial Finals 4-4 to a guy that would go on to take 5th, ALL while being a teenager and he was just your garden variety, non phenom wrestler????? The ONLY reason you are even able to slightly get away with that is because he left the sport right after that to pursue MMA. But, make no mistake, what he had done at that age level, ABSOLUTELY qualifies as a P H E N O M................................ The funny thing is I was never really even a fan of Pico, but ignoring the facts due to straight up PSU-Retherford bias, is straight up WEAK SAUCE...........................

    I created this rule back when I operated the boards. Why? Because too many times, people cannot act in a civilized manner with things like this. There was a time where I spent more time policing this board than doing my actual job while at USA Wrestling. What happened? I got heated calls from coaches, athletes, parents and even attorneys about the content on this message board. This, along with feedback from the staff at USAW during my tenure (2009-2012), was used to create this rule. So what happened was members of this very board weren't mature enough to have that conversation. It was repeated time and time and time again. Adults can't handle themselves like adults, then the rules of this board were created to prevent adults from acting like children. People seem to have short memories. Anytime a Hawkeye had an issue - the haters flocked. There were also instances with Cowboys, Nittany Lions and other athletes from high profile programs. You have the right do discuss these things. USAW doesn't have to provide you that right on their messageboards. There's plenty of other places for people to spew their venom - this rule was created so that this was not one of them. The rule was created because some people aren't responsible enough to have civil discussions. I don't work there anymore, but the rule has been in place and was put into place because of constant and repeated vitriol in situations regarding college athletes. You want to fight about it? Go to Twitter, Facebook or the comments section of newspaper websites. That's why the rule was put into place and I'm glad USAW is sticking to it. If you don't remember anything like this before, you have a short memory.
