    2020 Juniors Cancelled/Seniors is on!

    qualifying tournament and body of work are both valid ways of picking a team. i prefer qualifying tournament, but tbh, if there's going to be a qualifying tournament i'd also prefer that be made clear not framed as "likely." there's no right answer here because i think many wrestlers expected that either there would be no worlds and even if there were, USAW may not send a team. That said, Snyder showed up (to his dismay), so it's not like there was nobody there who would have been selected for the team if they opted out of an event they expected to be an optional event. This is a long and roundabout way of saying there are going to be angry people no matter what the final decision is but all possible answers have reasonable justifications. Sometimes life is funny like that. Apropos of absolutely nothing, Russian Nationals were held indoors to a packed house and nobody was wearing masks, to which I will give a rueful "lol". And as one final note, LJB is (a) not particularly wrong here since it is totally reasonable to want to reward the winners of a "likely" qualifying event and (b) it is completely irrelevant that he didn't wrestle. Neither did I. Polk High is in the rear view mirror, Team Al Bundy. A smelly old singlet in the bottom of a closet is not a requirement to talk about wrestling much less a requirement to talk about team qualification policy. However annoying his rejoinders are it is also at least clear that it is intentional because it is hilarious to him to watch the rest of you flail in response. Everyone else is going insane because they can't help but respond, which is a sickness. You actually can leave him hanging with the last word and you won't turn to dust. I promise.

    Good questions... Floarena and track wrestling will have live results. Typically the streaming service streaming the event will also post live results. Flo and track both allow you to access those live results for free. Twitter is where a lot of wrestling media, coaches, and wrestlers interact. If you have a certain program you follow or if you’re really into freestyle, there are Twitter accounts that will keep you up to date on the latest and most important info. As far as Flo, Track, and other streaming services, I think they’re all worth it. Each has their own focus and are relatively inexpensive. I’d be happy to answer any other questions you have.

    There is no conceivable justification for them saying the US Open Winners would "likely" be the reps. It just makes USAW look corrupt and stupid.

    Not to interrupt, but Taylor just wrote on instagram "World Championships in 2 month...I'll be ready!" So apparently he isn't worried.

    Fresno St to cut

    True that is a problem....however you have to adjust your schedule and expenses to stay on budget. In a fiscally fragile sport like wrestling, you can't go several hundred thousand in the hole every year. Which means they could have adjusted any way they wanted to stay on course with the budget. I don't pretend to know all the ins and outs of every budget line in a wrestling program...but I do understand that people work with bottom lines and that's where people look when making tough decisions. Not a good day for wrestling...and probably an even worse day for the West in terms of trying to improve the sport and the opportunities. At least they are honoring scholarships and Steiner's contract for where it is currently -which I am not sure about.
