    Nice article on Sadulaev

    I came across a nice article on Sadulaev - the author explained the matches in a vivid fashion and made subtle observations, excellent job by author! https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2019/8/30/20836604/wrestling-breakdown-pound-for-pound-king-abdulrashid-sadulaev

    #1: PSU trolls and PSU fans who take every piece of the PSU troll’s bait. #2: People who post topics in question form that 99% of wrestling fans are in consensus on. Stuff like “if Yianni beats Zain again will people accept that he’s really good at wrestling?”...and “in hindsight was Nolf a good college wrestler?” #3: the first person who brings up Trump or Obama (or any current politician) in any thread

    Btw Wrestfan that American at juniors was good. If they wrestled again he might not pin Zare but I think he'd beat him. Watch his matches on the way to the final. I think he has a lot of potential.

    Reasonable goals for World Teams

    After following wrestling for the better part of 30 years, I have learned there are few locks and even fewer now.

    1980 boycott prevented me from wrestling in the Olympics as much as it did Churella.

    Snyder will never beat Sadulaev again

    I heard an NPR radio show several years ago about the theory/philosophy of trolling. I did some googling and couldn't find a link, sorry. Notable was the misnomer of the troll being the pest under the bridge shaking people down. Instead, "trolling" was derived from the action of dragging the bottom of a river to stir up the sediment. Though this action is usually done while looking for something very specific, other things can also be uncovered. In the case of internet trolling: biases, old sentiment, old ideas that were once laid to rest but again agitated. I can appreciate a good troll job.

    1) People who don't call me "amigo." 2) People who don't tell me I'm like family. 3) People who don't boast about trysts with skanky, intoxicated cougars. 4) People who don't call it the world's oldest and gratest sport. 5) People who don't like to make fun of Tom and Terry.

    Reasonable goals for World Teams

    Women’s - 2nd is going to be tough, but we have a huge amount of talent this year. I think 2 golds and 5 medals total is probably our best reasonable performance. Wish Helen was on the team. Greco - I think 2 medals would be a victory. We could get up to 4 I think. There is a reasonable chance at 0 though. Freestyle - the only guy that doesn’t have much of a chance is Downey. Downey is in a wight with 8 guys who are all serious medal contenders. Usually a draw would matter but with this many high level guys, he can’t just get a lucky draw. Our other two weakest weights are 61 and 70, both extremely depleted. Green may even win gold. I think Snyder, JB, Jden, Dake, and Gwiz are all extremely likely to medal. That means we just need 1 of Fix, Yianni/Zain, Graff and Green to medal to secure 2nd. This assumes that we get at least 2 gold, if not more. Point system heavily weighs golds, as it should. Russia is likely to score 170ish in my opinion. We would need things like Fix over Uguev, green over Baev and JB over Sidakov to happen. Not totally unreasonable, but fairly unlikely. USA I think will score 130, and that assumes 7 medals. There isn’t another team that I think will catch us though. Japan is extremely strong in 3-4 weights. They aren’t deep enough. Azerbaijan is solid but their best guy is wrestling in an extremely deep weight. Iran might only end up with 2-3 medals. Georgia has a few gold threats but then is fairly weak. They could sneak into 3rd with a bunch of 5th place finishers. Maybe I’m forgetting a team?

    For the purposes of clarification, many may think you are referencing Jordan Burroughs, and not the illustrious Jason Bryant...whom I assume you are referring to.

    It was my attempt at humor, because you studied European History, and part of Turkey is in Asia and part is in Europe. So, maybe you studied a little of Turkey’s history, but not all of it.

    He wasn't suited for it and didn't like it much, but he did at least try. Had he stayed with it he might have done pretty well, but I don't think he had the desire to keep wrestling. Kind of like Lesnar, except Lesnar knew what was waiting for him if he had gone that route and wanted no part of it and never even bothered to try. Jones at least went for it for a year.

    Missouri Questions??

    Fix said that in a interview at OTC recently I believe it's on Flo.Said they checked with compliance and he can take classes and still Olympic RS.Yianni can't take classes because Ivy league schools don't allow RS so Yianni won't enroll this year he's gonna learn Russian instead

    Got it. If they do a family round robin, Ryder must have to stay in every round.

    Missouri Questions??

    One of the most interesting things I see on MO's roster: Dack Punke (125lbs) and Jace Punke (285lbs), both from the same high school. Are these guys brothers? If so, I don't think I have ever seen that big of a weight disparity between two brothers at the college level. I guess they don't roll around together too much back home!

    He wasn't 100% at the end of the season, and world championships aren't as prestigious as Olympics, which by all indications he's going for, so let your body heal for the Olympic run. I think it's that simple. Gilman was very on the record critical of Ramos' reaction to the Dennis situation. Now he wouldn't be the first person in history to be hypocritical, but the first scenario makes the most sense to me. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    There's nothing to due in Wilkes Barre for the wrestling fans. Except stuff like this. Even the Wilkes Open is now a JV event I'd bet they could have sold out Scanlon Gym at Kings College (across town). Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk

    If by "have a say" you mean "tamper with Lee's water bottle creating strange mono-like symptoms and erratic performance throughout the season leading to Lee being held out of trials," then maybe.

    The difference? Kyle has actually beaten Jordan before. That was the largest factor in them choosing Dake as a favorite.
