    Steveson vs Parris in 8 days

    So he's going to Parris instead of Rome?

    Askren has been great, they are still working out the kinks (mostly related to Ben steering discussions somewhere else before they finish the one they are on) but I'm a total believer now despite some early skepticism. Ben's analysis as a coach/technician and his ability to argue while not making it super heated/personal has been great. Great lighthearted discussions, great atmosphere and way less toxicity than before. They made an already great product even better... Ben can make a point, admit he may be wrong and is good at including the counterpoints from his co-hosts. All too often before it was "everyone against Willie" or "everyone against Nomad" where the person being attacked would double down to infinity and make for uncomfortable bickering. Bratke and Bray having less input so far has been the biggest bummer but they still chime in when needed. But all-in-all FRL has improved with Askren

    Pretty wild how many grown men jump at the chance to mock someone’s beliefs and religion. Does Kyle Snyder mock your beliefs? I never see anyone on these threads push there religious beliefs on anyone but always the same group of people just can’t wait to talk smack anytime a wrestler brings up god. You don’t believe fine ,but when you try to mock a man whose one of the best athletes in the world and one the greatest American wrestlers ever because his faith is strong,you might as well slap on a fake nose and some over sized red shoes bc your just a clown.

    Obviously disappointing to have no Greco finalist, but maybe we will get a lot of medals. The next session begins at 12 p.m. ET. Wrestling for medals are: 55 kg - Max Nowry (silver/bronze) 87 kg - Pat Martinez (bronze) 87 kg - Joe Rau (bronze) 97 kg - G'Angelo Hancock (bronze) 130 kg - Adam Coon (bronze)

    Damian Hahn at SDSU

    I haven't seen any posts about Hahn's SDSU team, but they have looked great since Christmas. Their last loss was 18-16 to Cornell, before beating Duke, Michigan St, Old Dominion, UNI, and Wyoming. I am excited to see how they do against Iowa St in a couple days. Truth is that I had sympathy for Hahn. I was worried his first head coaching job wouldn't be a success as Bono left and took his best wrestler with him along with a few de-commits. Boy was a wrong. SDSU cannot be an easy school to recruit to. In N'east Nebraska, N'west Iowa, S'East South Dakota, and S' west Minnesota, the population is a rounding error for many states, plus there are just a couple good teams to recruit against if a stud does come out. Good on Hahn! I'm really happy to see SDSU stay relevent.

    Not as bad as Eierman’s comments on the way out, but Snyder wasn’t exactly complimentary either. I’m quite surprised by that. He seemed to have a good relationship with his coaches and teammates. The whole God wanted me to line is so weak.

    FRL 445

    I think the new FRL is very good. Askren fits in well by adding his strong personality without being domineering, and it's a friendly group of smart, funny guys who interact productively together. I thought they made a good effort today to give a balanced analysis of the Iowa-Penn State likelihoods in line with the facts on the ground. To me the only person who could have a serious beef with today's discussion would be Jacob Warner (if he has a serious girlfriend).

    You have to think he’s going to Penn State given his name. It’d be like somebody named Gable not going to Iowa.

    PSU fans are spinning it so if Iowa loses they can proclaim it the greatest victory in history and say Brands should be fired or Iowa wins they will discredit it since they were such huge favorites. Tbar has been doing it ever since word on Cassar came out and now Im seeing a few others are jumping in on the act too.

    Pyles and Askren asked who was ranked ahead of Bo Nickal coming out of high school and they suggested maybe it was Johnny Sebastian. The answer is Chance Marsteller. When talking about the 2012 Recruting class they also said Gulibon was a 2x AA. Gulibon AA'd once (5th at 133.)

    Depending on who makes the team, was considering dropping some serious coin and making the trip. But as it turns out, tix are virtually impossible to get. Disappointing. Any suggestions appreciated. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

    A shot... absolutely. A realistic shot, i.e. one that is 25% or greater, I don't think so. Gross and Desanto are next level this year for the weight class, and Seabass is right there with them. RBY takes 4th. The rankings are right in my opinion.

    Unfortunately, LJB is right...His greco fundamentals are not high level at all. Even on a basic level, he pushes in with his underhook and goes for a ride on anyone who can deal with his size. I definitely understand that it must be nearly impossible for him to legit train par-terre (because who is going to lift the dude?), but he seems genuinely shocked by basic stuff he sees in competition. He could be solid if he cleaned up his pummeling and went for less loose-locked step arounds, but he needs better partners and greco-coaching. Is he working with Robbie at all?

    Exactly. How many high level recruits think like that though? Here is a guy who has shown to do an awful lot with little. What could I do with him as a coach?

    Steveson vs Parris in 8 days

    Or if Gable wants to send a message that “he won’t be denied” this year then he may try to steam roll Parris and make sure the rest of the top HWTs know they won’t touch him. Either it works and the title is about a lock. Or an act of athletic amazement occurs, Parris scoring off the move, crowd goes crazy, Gable battles back to take the lead, and then he just stalls out after leaving some small glimmer their could be hope. Yeah your versions probably right, but a person can dream.

    Even if he doesn't, Kyle was the International face of tOSU. He wrestled for tOSU while competing Internationally. Hell, Kerkvliet committed there and then de-committed as soon as he left. Kyle leaving like that is a killer.

    Iowa pouring concrete over the coffin

    I wrestle high school team that broke a lot of records. What happened was had some true blue chippers. The room grew as year went on as the whole roomed trained like them. Success breaded success. Group really got good. Team developed few D1 AA, Olympic alternate , few D111 national champs ect. Iowa got it's mojo going and I am not in the know. But from outsider looking in. looks like there all being lifted to new levels. " momentum" no one beating Iowa this year. Guys like Lugo, DeSanto,Murnin all rising new level. We new Lee,Marinelli,Kemmer be there. But the others will win it for them. I was rooting against Iowa. Now rooting for them. Good for sport more exciting. Also I think I misunderstood the Brands, care about the kids. Maturity. Frank C

    Looks like he confirmed he won't be using his extra year. Seems to be implying still making the Olympic run.

    Everybody looks tough in high school ; ) Yes, unfortunately Bono pulled his RS and it doesn't look like he can beat Watkins - the current guy keeping the spot warm. Not sure what kind of career awaits Christensen, but with Braxton Amos arriving next year things aren't looking up for Christensen at the UW. This year 197 is one of the UW's weaker weights.
