    All I See Is Gold Tier 1) 86 Taylor - 3-0 against the best competitor, but the gap is still a fraction apart between the two. I really like JB and Cox more but DT is the king of the mountain until proven otherwise. 2) 79 JB - What elite competition shows up? Currently this appears to be JB's weight to lose. I like angry JB he's always more fun. 4) 74 Dake - Appears to be the US #1 vs possibly Zhamalov (Russia #2 and global top 5 or better). Hope they don't meet until the finals, and I hope that Dake doesn’t run into a land mine again. 5) 92 Cox - Mortal lock? No. Would I be willing to put down a significant money at -110 odds that J'Den takes out the field? You betcha. Does the world's P4P show up? Tier 3) or 6) 97 Snyder - Does Sadulaev show up? If yes, then unfortunately I give Snyder a minmal chance (though still better than anyone below this spot). Not a knock on him that he went from being the P4P champ to being in the finals 3x and counting against the P4P champ. Just tough and will always root for a guy who does things the right way and has an amazing attitude. If no Sad, then the competition pool is very shallow. No Sad = disappointment if no gold. Probably not a chance but better than the group below Tier 6) 57 Gilman - Was Tokyo the best version of Gilman that we ever see? How is the foot injury and training progressing? Did everyone look good against Uguev before they came up short? 7) 65 Yianni - Would I be surprised by gold? Nope. He has proven international results. Would I be surprised by a DNP? Nope. It's 65 for crying out loud! Even if every Olympic medalist shows up there may be 4 new people on the podium. Going to need a miracle run Tier 8) 61 Fix - Anything less than a perfect draw with tomato cans to tech off the mat and conserve energy going into finals will prove fruitless. A medal is certainly within reach, but this post is about gold. 9) 70 Green - Father Time is still undefeated. Do I think Greezy can medal? Absolutely! Do I think he can win gold now when he couldn't in his prime? Not really. 10) 125 Gwiz Will Geno, Akgul, or Zare show up? What about Deng? What about "dang, at least we got gold a few months ago."

    NIL Issues in Happy Valley?

    The idea that multiple wrestlers on one team are getting six figure deals makes no sense. Why offer 100K when you can get them for 10K (or 1K)? There are three reasons I can think of to offer someone a big NIL deal: 1. To keep them away from a competing business 2. Because you believe that you will make the money back in additional sales or marketing exposure 3. To funnel money to wrestlers on the team without caring if you make it back in sales The third one seems like something a compliance office could get antsy about, especially if it seems like the payment is not for work actually performed.

    Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Purdue, and Penn State are the Big Ten schools with no vaccine requirement as of today. Ohio State was the latest to implement a requirement (August 24th). Some schools are doing weekly tests on unvaccinated students. The NCAA is recommending contact sports athletes be tested 3x per week in season, so I expect many schools to follow that guideline and require it out of their opponents.

    From what I've found Indiana, Rutgers, Northwestern, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, & Minnesota require vaccines. Some of these universities will allow students to remain unvaccinated if they are tested weekly.

    Opposite day, bro. Pletcher did not make a jump. Starocci did and will continue to improve.

    Starocci

    So, to summarize: Luke Pletcher makes a huge jump, signaled by some good Freestyle wins in the offseason. Starocci, one of two people who can be a five timer, beats a guy who went 2-1-1-1 at NCAAs, Evan Wick and Chance Marsteller on the same weekend. He went from beating Marsteller 4-2 to a 7-0 shutout, after spending a summer training with multiple 2021 Olympic medalists. But, no, he’s already run out of talent, progression or both.

    Anticipate Lineups for 21-22

    I do believe I was the nutcase a couple years ago that said 'Oh he should go 149 or 165 depending on Degen and Carr bump/not bump' a few years ago. If Marstellar can have success at 165 then Gomez can. He's got three or four inches on Marstellar. (joke:haha)

    I think I get it. You say a 39 year old athlete doing well at the trials is absurd, so you add 13 years to his age in a post to make a point. That is really clever!

    No, Tom Brands has 3 NCAAs plus an Olympic golds, which is better than 4 NCAAs. Also, they produced Alex Karras, who was a great football olayer and also played Mongo.

    This is a good readout. I may flip Gilman and yianni, but otherwise, really good!

    Yianni only faced two opponents at 2021 WTT. But had 4 matches. Not sure Pletcher would get to Yianni’s legs anyway. But McKenna has been able to. But not much this time around. Announcers highlighted Yianni’s down blocks and it sure did seem like Yianni was working hard to not let anyone feast on his legs. Was this really a new thing for him? Was he really able to change his style regarding defense? Seems so but not sure if enough data. If so, he really did elevate his game. Impressive. Curious what others think. Have there been any interviews that talk about it? (I stink at watching post match interviews)

    Starocci

    There's no "midpoint." If you say the spread is 2.5, you're right if Starocci wins by 3 or more. You can't be like "I think Starocci is a 2.5 point favorite, but I also win if he wins by 2 points." This is how lines work.

    Ryan Deakin has wins over Carr, Tsirtsis, and Lugo (#1 seed in cancelled NCAA's) Myles Amine might have the most "almost" wins over NCAA champions. He has 12 losses to NCAA Champions (1 to Ferrari, 5 to Hall, and 6 to Valencia), of those, 9 were decided by 2 points or less. Crazy!

    Gable Steveson returns for the 2024 Olympic run. After going WWE for a few years, and apparently turning his back on Amateur Wrestling, the newly minted WWE Star returns to what made him who he is and... * Runs through everyone at Heavyweight at the OTT. His closest match is Kerkvliet in the finals, and he techs him in the first period. * At the Olympics, goes unscored upon, teching his way to his 2nd Olympic Gold. His star power at the WWE only increases, and the further cross-promotion of Amateur and Professional Wrestling goes into overdrive. In 2025, he lands a movie gig alongside The Rock. Let's see how this post ages. ;-)

    He retweeted a guy saying we should nuke Kabul. Incinerating hundreds of thousands of civilians is a tad controversial imo.

    NIL Issues in Happy Valley?

    I would be SHOCKED. Absolutely and completely blown away if a single wrestler in America - outside Gable because that is a multi-year professional deal with a NIL clause - signed a yearly deal approaching $25k. Much less multiple Penn State wrestlers signing $100,000+ deals. Your best wrestler would be lucky to get $2-5k a year. Nick Lee has been posting controversial opinions on Afghanistan and brands want no part of that. RBY has a decent following but nowhere near big enough for 6 figures. Starocci has less than 30k instagram followers. Brooks has less than 20k instagram followers. You think Max Dean and the Dean's family stance on vaccination is going to be valued in this environment? This is absurd.

    Wrestlestat uses a ranking system that gives no weight to matches that haven't been wrestled. So, if someone (like Greg D.) has no matches, he gets no ranking points. With no ranking points, their score is 1200, which is tied for DFL in the weight class (at 125, there are 146 guys with points, so everyone without points gets #147). It's a statistical ranking, not an opinion ranking.

    Need to find it, but Romero had said in an interview he intended to go 165 this year. He went 174 because of it being a 'FREE' year and the uncertainty leading into the season if the NCAAs would be contested or not(again).
