    Dan Gable

    Dan Gable is one of the greatest wrestlers and coaches the United States ever produced. Donald Trump is the worst, most incompetent president of our generation. This event did nothing to change my opinion of either.

    If Matt goes at 157, does that mean all 3 brothers would be starting at the same time? They should have the 3 Lee's matchup against the 3 Finesilver's at the next NLWC event!

    Allen was really the driver behind it in my opinion. He contributed the most discussion and information with others feeding off him to create a community discussion.

    Gavin is the wild card in the top half. If this was 5 years ago I would be taking him. He does have the most credentials on the national scene and is the only one to be on a world team. No one else in the bracket has really challenged to be on a world team.

    Dan Gable

    This post wasn’t started with a partisan comment, I started it to acknowledge someone in the wrestling community receiving the highest civilian honor and you guys ran over here to give your best impressions of Bozo of the clown and starting whining about politics Biden most likely just give it to some D-bag ,like when biden was VP and they gave Harvey Weinstein and Ellen the presidential medal of freedom , but yea trumps bad and let’s all hate on Dan gable getting pretty much a life time achievement award bc the people on the Tv in my living room told me I should be angry. No politics were mentioned until the anti trump crowd rolled in with their elementary school comments , then you same people get angry when someone replies to your ridiculous comments and you instantly just start talking down to anyone who disagrees with you.. honestly we all should appreciate Dan gable and what he’s done for our sport but you people ( on both sides )that have to turn everything into some type of political sparring match ruin this site and honestly if politics get you this worked up and angry that you’ll talk down and yell at strangers on a wrestling site then maybe it’s time to turn off the tv for a little bit, maybe find a new a hobby , or talk to a doctor because from a neutral outsider a lot of you are bordering on insanity and it’s not healthy for you or the people around you

    Russian Nationals 2020

    Who will be watching? Links can be found on the youtube channel below; although, many of you are in the USA, and will begin a little early/late: https://www.youtube.com/user/WrestRusRu Some of the bigger names competing: 57kg: Zaur Uguev, Azamat Tuskaev, Ramiz Gamzatov, Akhmed Idrisov 61kg: Aleksandr Bogomoev, Ramazan Ferzaliev 65kg: Gazdhimurat Rashidov, Soslan Ramonov, Nachyyn Kuular, Akhmed Chakaev 70kg: David Baev, Israil Kasumov, Magomedrasul Idrisov, Kurban Shiraev (Idrisov and Shiraev moved up to 70) 74kg: Zaurbek Sidakov, Magomedrasul Gazimagomedov, Magomed Kurbanaliev, Razambek Zhamalov 79kg: Akhmed Gazhimagomedov, Gadzhi Nabiev 86kg: Artur Naifonov, Dauren Kurugliev, Magomed Ramazanov, Radik Valiev 92kg: Alikhan Zhabrailov 97kg: Abdulrashid Sadulaev, Shamil Musaev, Magomedkhan Magomedov 125kg: Anzor Khizriev, Zelimkhan Khizriev, Alan Khugaev, Baldan Tsyzhipov I think the National winners will look very similar to the 2019 squad: Uguev, Bogomoev, Rashidov, Baev (or Shiraev), Sidakov, Gadzhimagomedov, Naifonov, Zhabrailov, Sadulaev and A. Khizriev. But the Olympic weight classes are the ones that matter here. Would have been nice to see Baev go to 65 or 74, Gadzhimagomedov to 86. Should be good!

    Fresno Bee just confirmed it...men's tennis and women's lacrosse are also receiving the axe. They are competing in 2020-21 though...maybe we can get them to pull a CSU Bakersfield? (or something?)

    Yes, it is definitely sad to see it go! Things just haven’t been the same since we lost Stovepipe. That was such a huge loss for the wrestling community. Agree with the OP that there hasn’t been a substitute for that site

    Senior Nationals had many Olympic hopefuls competing for pride. Not sure how much money the HWC and NLWC are paying for matches but if its in the ballpark of $1,000 then they would all also, by your reckoning, be competing for pride. Not sure why competing for 'pride' would surprise you. that is historically how things work in this sport.

    The End of Wrestling Report

    I remembered, long ago, when I started to surf the web (back then w/dial-up modems... always trying to get a faster line.) My first foray into wrestling message boards was the AOL message wrestling boards. Soon after, I stumbled onto the Wrestling Report fora. When I saw that there was a dedicated spot there for EIWA/LEHIGH Wrestling, I was hooked for the long term! Met up w/ some "interesting" characters and also, what eventually became, VERY good people that we all occasionally got together at some duals and the EIWA's. (We're still in contact now. ;-) ) WR.com was good while it last. cheers! D3

    That's not how they sunset programs. They do a teach out. Which simply means they stop accepting students into a program and then the program ends when the students in the program have completed their progress. So basically it is typically over four years they phase out the program. And yes, they sometimes allow for online classes for those that fall behind on the progress with a partnering school. So honestly it isn't a big deal. It would only be a big deal for wrestling if the major that was sunset was one that a lot of wrestlers enrolled in and there was nothing else at the school that they moved to. But that isn't likely.

    Gable could have just accepted the award at the ceremony where it will be given. Instead, he went up on stage at a rally and told the crowd that the president deserves to be reelected. Announcing the award at an Iowa rally three weeks before the election was a political act. Gable going up on stage at a rally to endorse a candidate was a political act. Those are just facts. The opinions come in when I tell you that Gable endorsing this president should drastically lower your opinion of him as a man.

    Yes, you're right actually. Guess they probably won't have a complete consolation bracket. 1st place - 20k, 2nd place - 10k, 3rd place - 5k 4th place - 2.5k 5-8th place - 1k

    I think if Gavin is in shape, he wins this. I have no idea what his current training situation is, so that’s a pretty big if, but he has by far the best freestyle technique out of that group. He has that slick style like many foreign wrestlers and doesn’t need a huge gas tank...just enough to get by.

    Damn it, Fletcher - looks like you took things too far once again; only this time you've lost Bronco. Bronco's not the type of guy to use the word "nitwit" lightly and he used it twice! This is bad - really bad. I'll just have to keep my head down, mouth shut, and maybe someday Bronco will show some grace and give me a chance to earn my way off his IGNORE list. Prayers.

    Saw this on Facebook. Knew this would happen. So much squawking and squalling and whining by both sides nowadays. Both are using elementary comments and insults. Though the one side that usually calls itself the tougher one has been the most whiny lately. Which has been mildly irritating. At this point most know what’s they’re going to go with. Most are completely disingenuous with their selective ignorance and prejudices. Most can’t evaluate or understand basic legal procedures or how hearsay works in a legal sense. Point is. Everyone calm down. Gable got his medal. One he should have gotten already. No duh it was timed to help one candidate.

    Sadly, in some way Gable will be diminished by accepting this award while being a pawn for Trump at what is likely to be a superspreader event.

    Whoa, nevermind. We got an enlightened centrist over here. You must be really smart! Hahaha What if you just ignored it? Like its purely political, everyone knows it, just acknowledge it and move on. Instead you have to jump on a soap box, and really make it about politcs. Get over it and enjoy the fact that Dans getting some recognition. Not everyone needs to be as excited as you about the motive behind it all, and the world will be fine if everyone doesnt agree with you..... Congrats Dan!

    Who cares who gave it to him? Well deserved and I’m glad he received it in his home state. All you heard from Obama was basketball.

    He always seemed to have such boundless energy. He was still occasionally going live when I walked on at Lehigh. My experience wrestling him was that every thing he did hurt and made it hard for you to breathe. Felt almost like submission wrestling. When I did once or twice manage to pull out some surprise funk move that caught him off guard, he would always make an excited exclamation like, "Ha! Look at that! Amazing flexibility!" I wasn't a big time recruit when I was at Lehigh, or even a very good wrestler at that level, but he always seemed excited to talk to me, and had a real desire to help me progress, as did Pat, Chris and Kerry. That was the kind of program he built there. I saw him a couple of years ago for the first time in over a decade. There was a little more gray in the hair, but he still had that same youthful energy. Hard to imagine that he's gone. Rest in peace Coach.

    Great for Gable to get the award - too bad he had to shill for that dishonest dolt in return (who claimed repeatedly that he thought he could take Gable.) Made a deal with the devil here. Feels too much like what was happening at Foxcatcher... sometimes things that appear good are better turned down.

    I'm guessing (hoping) that you are pointing out correctly that the Orange Agent will use anything or anyone as a means to his pathological and narcissistic ends. It would great if Gable accepts the award but refuses to meet with the liar, racist, corrupt, and incompetent Fool and Con Man.
