    I don’t go to Walmart to tell them what’s wrong at Target. Go to the damn source first. If they willfully ignore you, then by all means complain away. This board is not the Flo/InterMat/Track/et al help desk.

    I don't want this to get lost on only the International forum. It's the most smack I think a non-Downey, non-Dake wrestler has talked in years. RIP to David Taylor.

    Andy Simmons was sitting at his desk, his laptop staring back at his face with a dull shine against the dark room. Watching his opponents, analyzing every movement, waiting for the exact moment to strike when it is least expected and the damage will be most impactful. He patiently waits for Nomad's spreadsheet to exponentially expand. To pass the time he keeps dropping down into that old, familiar, squared stance with his left leg ever so slightly behind his right and his toes crowing out. It was the same stance low to the ground that he is so familiar with, although now the pops and creaks emanating from his knees and hips are also becoming more and more familiar and no amount of Icee Hot can cure. But he ignores the aches and throbs as he presses the refresh button on Chrome over and over and over again. He wonders if this particular drill is going to result in a lifetime of carpal tunnel syndrome. To him it's yet another drill that he has done for years and honed to perfection, but this time there is more meaning as he scours the landscape of potential opponents. None of the top challengers are interested minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day. He wonders if it could be too good to be true. "Will there be no worthy opponents this annum? Could this be the opportunity I have waited a lifetime for?" In that moment his reflexes snap as quick as ever, striking the keyboard and entered his credit card information. He knew he would have the chance to fulfill a self-prophesied destiny. He raises the courage to go for it one last time. "To Valhalla!! I bet I can get into a bronze match since no one is going to show up this year and it's such a JV tourney that an old washed dude like me can get seeded 4th!" Stay tuned for the next chapter: The Old Man and the Sauna

    no, the format is different this year, just two rounds (instead of home and away) plus the final four , we saw the first round. there will be another round in near future but they will announce the schedule after UWW's decision about the 2020 Worlds. IF UWW decides to host the 2020 Worlds in Serbia, they will postpone the rest of the league and will invite few wrestlers to the national camp.

    nolf vs Bubba Jenkins 10/20

    To be clear, my argument was only about using a win over a freshman DT to say a PRIME Jenkins couldn't beat Nolf. That version of DT was as good as any of his 165 seasons and that bracket was most certainly tougher(obviously Dake is better than any single guy, but that bracket was NOT deep). In fact, I still believe Fittery was by far his best College win. I also am not convinced that Nolf would beat that DT. Hall, Fittery, Jenkins, St. John, Saddoris, Welch, Flemming and Dong was definitely a hell of a lot better than the empty 165 he dominated his sophomore year.......

    So rather than contacting them directly you call them out on a public forum about the mistake? Do you really not understand the difference in how to handle that? Well I guess turnabout is now fair play...

    You are missing the point. You are making a mistake by telling us about their mistake when you could fix your mistake by telling them about their mistake. Or you can be a defender of your mistake.

    Jordan Burroughs commits murder

    Disagree but like you I have no real evidence. I think the transition to night before to same day has made it a struggle. I'm pretty he's said (or tweeted) that he starts adjusting his diet a few weeks before an event. Can't remember what he's weighed for BTS and other events where they don't have weigh ins though. Guess we'll find out when he weighs in at this flo event.

    nolf vs Bubba Jenkins 10/20

    I am sorry, but that is a pretty poor assessment. That "scrawny" DT WRECKED that weight class all season. That included a Steve Fittery that was REALLY GOOD. Bubba Jenkins was much like Darrion Caldwell, not always at his peak. BUT, his peak was about as good as ANYONE. Now, with the above said, would I favor Nolf over a PRIME Jenkins? Sure. I favored DT. But, I was NOT surprised that Jenkins beat DT and would not have been surprised if he beat Nolf. Finally, yes Nolf should wreck a 32 year old MMA fighter that always had a suspicious gas tank. The pace Nolf wrestles should be extremely problematic for Jenkins. However, Nolf loves to put himself in dangerous situations and Jenkins is dangerous enough to catch him. So, I would say Jenkins still has a "puncher's chance", but I would heavily lean towards a tech-fall in Nolf's favor.

    nolf vs Bubba Jenkins 10/20

    You referring to the JO match? I don't recall anyone saying that for the JO-Nolf match. If you're referring to the DT-Jenkins match, then also no. A) A young, scrawny-a$$ DT against PRIME Jenkins doesn't sniff an old over-the-hill MMA fighter who hasn't sniffed competitive wrestling in some time against a Nolf who defeats any version of PRIME Jenkins at folkstyle. Yes the match is freestyle, but this is going to look much worse than Caldwell.

    Hahahahaha JB is awesome. Taylor is also an incredible talent but I'm not as big a fan of him since he tweeted about Cox, apparently didn't want Nickal at his weight and now this. To me (and my opinion doesn't mean much, I know) DT comes off as arrogant and kinda pretentious. JB is an all timer. In my top 2 for sure.

    nolf vs Bubba Jenkins 10/20

    Bubba did an interview with I think intermat about 2 years ago and they asked if he could fight any 2 people in the world who would he pick and he said Frank Molinaro and Cael Sanderson and made it clear he still really hates both of them

    I went to high school in Virginia. My senior year, at the Grundy tri-meet, our heavy-weight was out sick and our coach asked if I would be willing to bump up 4 weight classes and wrestler heavy weight. He asked that I just try to keep from being pinned. I agreed knowing the guy I was going to face had a bunch of 6, 7, 8 second pins. As we shook hands, my opponent looked at the ref and mumbled something. All I could hear was something about a headlock. I was confused and the ref just chuckled. Whistle blows, and I’m still trying to figure out what was going on. My opponent lunged forward, whipped me down with a headlock, flatten his hips, and I was flat on my back. All I remember is my opponent yelling “hit the mat!!!!” I was pinned in about 4 seconds I often wonder what happened to my opponent. I’m guessing he’s like the guy in Glory Days.

    Glad he did the interview considering things are still on motion, good on him. Can't expect him to say much about the suspension given that it's clearly still being worked on, can only hurt himself by saying too much publically.

    Tell me your wrestling stories

    Another one that @Drake_Mallard just reminded me of. We had a 103lber my senior year who weighed about 90lbs. He was a 13 year old super genius who ran cross country and we recruited him so we didn’t have to forfeit the weight. His first match, ever, in his life, with three weeks training, was against Blake Frost from Christiansburg who had won a state title the year before and had a super aggressive style. Anyway they get going, 30 seconds into the match, Frost scoops him up, drops him on his shoulder/arm and pins him. Our guy gets up, shakes his hand and comes over to our coach and says, calmly, “coach, I do believe that I have broken both my clavicle and humerus” Coach : “ummm, I don’t think so, you’d be screaming right now” Thomas: “you are correct, however, my mother is in attendance and I feel that an uncharacteristic outburst of emotion, may cause her distress” Coach: “....” Thomas: “I’m going to remove myself and go discuss this further with the trainer of athletes” Coach: “ummm, ok bud” Turns out, he was spot on. Both his humerus and collarbone were snapped directly in two. He had emergency surgery to put plates in. The x-rays were like something I had never seen before, looked like someone sawed them both in half. He’s now a Harvard med professor.

    Junior high school, match against our rival school whose team, to a man, was much better than us. Part way through my match, I'm predictably on my back desperately arching to avoid the pin. I'm looking at the sideline where their cheerleaders were, and I see the girl who had a crush on me in 5th and 6th grades (we were in a Rapid Learners program for those two years), and she's screaming "PIN HIM! PIN HIM!" For the record, I did not get pinned. Also for the record, we just had a 50th reunion with our 6th grade teacher, and it was very nice to see Lisa and the others again.

    Tell me your wrestling stories

    In high school, my junior year, I was determined to set the National fastest pin record that was always posted in whatever wrestling magazine our coach got in the late 90s. Anyway, I had a bunch of 6, 7, 8 second pins and my coach was mad because I wasn’t getting any work in and my method, whipping a head and arm off the whistle, wouldn’t get good kids. So he told me I could do it one more time and try and beat the record, it was 4 seconds held by another VA guy, junior national, nationally ranked #1 HWT, Luke Owens from Grundy High School. Ironically, my next match was in a Grundy tri-meet but not against a Golden Waver. As we shook hands, I looked at the ref and said “wait, I’m going to whip a headlock, flatten my hips, and he will be stuck in about 3 seconds, be ready”. My opponent, was truly confused and the ref just chuckled. Whistle blows, I lunge and whip the headlock, flatten my hips, the guy is flat and I’m yelling “hit the mat!!!!” The ref does, 4 seconds in! Afterwards, he apologizes and says that he was so stunned to react but that the guy was flat at 3 seconds. No big deal, I tied one of the greatest heavyweights in the history of high school wrestling! however...my coach never submitted it to USA wrestling or Win or whatever it was. He said that was my punishment for taking the easy way out.

    I don't know, I thought it was pretty cool. He was talking about working on that particular lace for Val. Talked about some of the shadiness that happens internationally. Things that went through his head during the match and what he did to prepare for that one moment of his life. I know of others who do this (yianni for one.) I think its an excellent teaching tool.
