    Along a similar line of thinking I’m going to wait until he can beat a prime Dan Gable and John Smith back to back, followed by a prime Brock Lesner and Jon Jones in the octagon, then prime Flair and Hogan in a triple threat steel cage match, and just to ensure it wasn’t all luck we will go international and he can face a Sicilian in a battle of wits when death is on the line. If he make it through all of this I maybe sold he could win a couple college matches. Inconceivable!

    One of the things Rulon did was when Karelin attempted to pick him up in a reverse lift, Rulon started walking sideways with his hands to get Karelin off balance and it worked. I had never seen that technique before that but it worked great. Must have been one of the things they worked on. mspart

    As an analogy. Pretend that Sadulaev had never lost to Snyder, but at the 2020 individual world cup they met and it was 0-0 after regular time. The officials begin reviewing something and the judges give a mystery point that hands Sad the match. Sad barely wins Russian Nationals, has a 1-0 final win. Then Snyder faces Sad just before the games again at Aliev and Sad wins with a single caution point. That was Karelin's situation going into those Olympics. If this forum had been around then and the information available. A decent of amount of people would have predicted something other than Gold for Karelin. With predictions that Rulon would beat him as rare as the people predicting that Coon would win gold at Tokyo.

    Not to be cute, but Gardner beating him had to be more surprising. For Karelin to lose--to anyone-- was surprising. For him to lose to Gardner, Gardner had to make the finals AND beat Karelin.

    Is that meant to be rhetorical? He left because he plateaued, and lost. Your second point is completely irrelevant as it could be claimed, with no basis, for just about every ultra successful wrestler.

    Well, I'm glad to hear that going forward Spencer will no longer have any excuses in his back pocket. I remember Nick Heflin's 2014 interview about his injuries. "At this stage of the tournament everyone is banged up with something. there's no need to talk about them."

    Assuming the back pocket is closed with a button or Velcro, they can be saved and considered safe for a washer and dryer. I bet they get dry and sharp over time, but I'm speculating.

    Per https://uww.org/ these are the seed 'rankings' that they have. I pulled Steveson out, because USA isn't sending him. It's just a matter of determining who is actually going: 01, STEVESON Gable, USA, 68 PTS 02, PETRIASHVILI Geno, GEO, 60 PTS 03, AKGUL Taha, TUR, 46 PTS 04, ZARE Amir Hossein Abbas, IRI 40 PTS 05, ABDELMOTTALEB Diaaeldin Kamal Gouda, EGY, 36 PTS 06, BOLTIN Oleg, KAZ, 28 PTS 07, KHRAMIANKOU Dzianis, BLR, 26 PTS 08, BATIRMURZAEV Yusup, KAZ, 22 PTS 09, SUMIT Sumit, IND, 21 PTS 10, DENG Zhiwei, CHN, 18 PTS 10, MUNKHTUR Lkhagvagerel, MGL, 18 PTS 10, KOZYREV Sergei, RUS, 18 PTS 10, LAZAREV Aiaal, KGZ, 18 PTS EDIT: From what I seen on the last entries list, ABDEL of Egypt was not there (Nor is the Hemida, the US wrestler contending for the spot). It appears BOLTIN of Kazahkstan is entered. He will get the 4 seed, if ABDEL is not there.

    This is one of those matches that hasn't aged well. It's like the Star Wars The Force Awakens. Big deal at first, then as time goes on, you realize it's basically the same movie as the original but with updated graphics. Karelin lost that match btw.

    I can see the surprise, but let's not underestimate Rulon. He was a late bloomer and just coming into his own. He went on to have a great career - better even than Dake and Taylor. Karelin was ripe. He was over 30 and undefeated.

    My opinion might be controversial, but I remember watching Karelin's matches that Olympics and he just did not look like he was in the kind of shape he needed. I'm not sure but I don't remember him completing a reverse lift on anyone. He just wasn't as sharp. So when it came to the finals, I thought he might be vulnerable. And he was. I think it was more surprising that Rulon beat him than someone else, but it had to be Rulon. And he proved it was no fluke the next year, becoming World Champion. It had to be someone that believed they could beat the Russian Bear. I think only Rulon had that mindset. More surprising that Rulon was the one because of his relative inexperience on the senior level. Not so surprising that Karelin lost. He was not sharp that year in my opinion. mspart

    I disagree. I think the bigger shock was that Karelin lost. Gardner was World Champion the following year and took Bronze in 2004. If someone was going to beat him, it's not that surprising that it would be the guy who was World Champion the next year too and then repeated as a Olympic medalist. Gardner beating Karelin was certainly his burst onto the scene, but his success following Gold in Sydney makes it less of a shock to me that Gardner was the one who did it.

    Its was more surprising that Rulon did it. Rulon was blip in Karelin's. If you 'd asked him before the tourney who his career top foes were, Rulon wouldn't have made Karelins top 30. He was just some guy who Karelin destroyed in 97 and in general was Gaffari's back up. Yes Rulon did win the worlds in 01. But he was never a truly great wrestler, always had a lot of losses, and was quickly supplented by the more talent Yuri, khasan, and Lopez. Karelins last dominant torunament was the 99 euros. By the 99 worlds, his age took away his offensive. He could no longer score tons of points agianst the elite guys. Consider this. In 2000 he won the Russians and Euro finals 1-0 both times. In 99 worlds he had a controversial 0-0 match. Now no one could score on him in true wrestling fashion, but they didn't need to as Rulon demonstrated with the BS rules that never belonged in greco. Who could have predicted to beaten him? Sergie Mureiko. He is the one who went 0-0 with him in 99 and then had a 1-0 loss at the Euros. He was always really good at defending karelin's lifts (not that Karelin was lifting people anymore by then) and after being close so many times. Hector, Bardos Debelka, Rulon (courtesy of his pans) , Saladze, and Deblka all had a spin wheel chance of being the luck close match no score winners against him and lady luck gave it to Rulon.

    Taha is 2nd seed and Zare is 3rd seed. Geno will be the 1 seed. As an American I am hoping that Gwiazdowski is in the top half (less likely due to unbalanced brackets), because I believe he matches up better with Geno than Akgul or Zare.

    I think Michigan and Michigan State could both improve point totals considerably. As previously posted Michigan could get in the 100 point range. Michigan State, if they can get healthy, can AA at anywhere from 3 to 6 weights. Low AA but still AA. 125-Foley 149-Omania 157-Saldate 184-Malczewskie 197-Caffey 285-Vasbinder If Tucker drops back to his natural weight of 157 and Saldate makes a leap, they could get 165 as well. I know the coaching staff is high on Caleb Fish, but I think he will redshirt to fill out 174 and give them four solid years there. If Foley were to go 133 and not miss a beat and Lujan were to pan out like they hoped, 125 and 133 are both now scoring points at NCAAs.

    Haha. I was being sarcastic. I think, just based on the many interviews Ive seen Lee, his father, and the Brandses give, that Lee has a lot more say in what goes on than is typical for a college wrestler so I find it interesting when folks pile on the Iowa coaches for what they perceive to be mismanagement of their star athlete (not that they're above reproach fwiw). No insider info so my take may definitely be the wrong one

    My HS coach is a PA Hall of Famer. He was reffing a meet in Delaware and asked me and a few other wrestlers to go with him. Some suburban rich kid school was hammering Wilmington HS -- every match a blowout. At about 145, suddenly the Wilmington kid had the rich kid on his back! Rich kid starts bridging and moving. My coach is on the mat looking for the pin. Rich kid bridges and moves, bridges and moves, with my coach going right along with him. My coach calls the pin. The wrestlers are at least 10 feet off of the mat. If they bridged and moved much more, he would have called the pin in the parking lot. As a group of 10th graders, all of us kids who came with the coach were extremely embarrassed. The Wilmington coach wasn't going to complain. And I guess the rich kid's coach felt that he was shellacking the team bad enough, it would look tacky to complain. So my coach didn't even realize what he had done until we told him on the way home.
