    It’s not all that confusing. Freestyle has nothing to do with control and the criteria that leads to no OT is one of the best things about the sport. It keeps the match entertaining until the end of the match.

    Downey vs. Yazdani

    Yep, that's what I'm talking about. I guess technically speaking, pinning is not mopping the mat, Typically it happens in one location on the mat. However a 9-0 run is a mopping. mspart

    Mt Rushmore for your state

    Texas would have a pretty good one from the last 20 years considering we aren't great at wrestling. Slay, Dlagnev, Lawal, Nickal. There is little depth if we tried for even 6 or 8 names but that's a pretty good 4.

    Suriano vs lee

    Lee beats Suriano and Fix. Fix would never sniff an escape and would probably get turned. It would be an ugly match for Fix in folk style.

    Date set for Dake/Dierenger

    According to that serial liar (or so I'm told) Rob Koll: He also had some things to say about Yianni and the path forward, but since he really can't be believed, I won't repeat it.

    Agreed. Including using the broadest ORS qualification criteria yet.

    Wrestling has a lot of bitter Betty’s as fans. Koll’s legacy will take care of itself, as it does for others.

    Way too Early 2020 Olympics Team Picks

    Well so far I haven't seen anything from Nickal that would indicate to me that he get past either Cox or Snyder. But maybe he can make the U23 team and have a great World U23 tourney and build off it.

    there is only 1 Olympic Qualifier next year. it's May 1st. we need our 1's to go to that if we aren't qualified at a wt. imo any criticism that USAW didn't do enough to take ncaa guys into account is misguided. with the PAN AM OG Qualifier in Mid March, the most ideal situation would have been to have our #1's set in January some time.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Pico not getting a gold medal because of Yazdani doesn't make pico a worse wrestler then our other junior champs. Pico was elite for his age, and needed to be to beat Zain as much as he did. He was a great prospect, for MMA, and looked like he would have been representing us had he stuck with it. Its irrelevant because his management let him down, and rushed his whole career. Now whether they turn it around or not is a different question. Pico was better then you seem to be giving him credit for, but its stupid to argue, because he slowed down his wrestling growth by switching sports, so Zain has passed him. But to pretend Pico was just another wrestler and only made the Olympic trials finals because he got lucky, seems ridiculous.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    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.

    Worthwhile Stieber interview

    If you've ever been fortunate enough to talk to Geoff Stieber, you understand why the son's are such good people. He guided Logan and Hunter (as well as Cam Tessari and Chris Phillips) to be successful in this sport and never allowed them shortcuts. At the same time, he kept them in their tiny community and created a source of pride for their hometown. Think about every wrestling Dad you know and ask how many would have sent their incredibly talented sons to a program without any other great training partners or a stud staff? The Steibers learned values beyond winning from their father. Mom is fabulous as well.

    Stop 1984ing us

    You’re right that the easier solution is to erase the entire topic from discussion. But the better solution is to delete the uncivilized posts and warn/suspend/ban the posters who cross the line. I do not think the actions of the immature few should limit discussion between the responsible majority. The rule itself is arbitrary, as why should taking college credit preclude an individual from discussion (vs being a coach or international wrestler). The suggestion to “go somewhere else” if we want to discuss the topic doesn’t validate the rule. And if the employees of USAW are too overworked to moderate individual threads (as you were back in 2011), an easy solution to that dilemma is to assign section volunteer moderators for international, college, high school, etc.

    Should I-Mar leave Illinois

    By owning you? Wasn’t Joseph like 2-3 or 2-4 against IMar. Granted, he beat him on the big stage twice, but owning is a ridiculous word to use. Kind of like saying Donahoe owned Hazewinkel to keep him from winning one, even though Sam majored him at Big 12’s less than 2 weeks before.
