    U23 Worlds (Freestyle)

    Dom aged out in 2019. Sadly. This would have been a year to win a gold medal. My predictions. 50: Shilson should make the finals. She's very technical and persistent. Her recent focus on strength training should serve her well. Hopefully on the other side of the bracket from RUS. 53: Heaton should medal. Depends on the draw. She has improved markedly in the last year. 55: Hedrick's first time on the age group championship and a very defensive wrestler. I suspect she'll go 7th, depending on the bracket and the draw. I'll keep my fingers crossed though. 57: Martinez swapped in for Sisenstein (not sure why). She went 1-2 at OTT. Welcome to the world stage, kiddo. 59: Beck is another very defensive wrestler. 2 and out at OTT. Beat by Megan Black and Mota-Petis at WTT. 5th is my bet. 62: Bruntil lost twice to Jen Page at OTT. Had a good run. Gave quite a show at WTT giving Molinari all she wanted at 65s. I doubt anybody but Rizkho from UKR will challenge here. Should medal. 65: Ortega went 1-2 at OTT and 0-2 at WTT. 65s will be a tough weight. It'll be good experience though. 68: Fiske. It all depends which Lyv shows up. She could medal. She could go 1 and out. Both Fiske and Hedrick suffered from SFU not having a season last year due to COVID.Again, as an SFU partisan, I'll keep my fingers crossed. 72: Marano is a decent collegiate wrestler at this weight. She didn't go to OTT or WTT. 72s is deep this year. 7th is my bet. 76: Welker is a big, strong kid who made a splash at WTT and OTT against weak fields. Not very technical, but aggressive, which can substitute at this weight. If Kennedy Blades hadn't been seriously concussed, I think Blades would have beaten her handily. My guess is Welker gets bronze. Just remember kiddos, free opinions are usually worth what you pay for them.

    I know some people enjoy this kind of banter. I think it makes them look like trash.

    MMA fighters seem to have some of the worse twitter pissing contests. Sounds like Bo’s fine with joining in the fun.

    Well to be honest...I didnt' click on the link for their schedule and just took your word for it - I actually do find it interesting that they will see each other a lot this season. Will these be considered official recruiting visits by Cornell wrestlers when Koll is in the gym?

    Hello Wrestling Fans! We are excited to announce that #FCW is officially open for the 2021-2022 season!!! The major change for this year is providing the ability for leagues to be EITHER Head-to-Head scoring, or Cumulative Scoring. Last year because of COVID and the abbreviated schedule, it did not make sense to do the traditional head-2-head format that we did for the prior season, so we developed a cumulative scoring version. Well, now that that is done, we have the ability to provide both versions to our users. Here's our Rokfin (subscription required, but it's our FREE channel) post giving all of the details, as well as rules, and signup: https://rokfin.com/article/6020/202122-Fantasy-College-Wrestling-FCW Here's a link to the #FCW on WrestleStat where you can also find the same information: https://www.wrestlestat.com/fcw

    I'm a big fan (Clearly Freestyle motivated) but I hope he's a finalist every year. 65 or 74? I would look it up... meh I will. Ohio State has a real solid middle of their line-up.

    He’s scheduled for a wrestle off. So hopefully all systems go for him.

    Anticipate Lineups for 21-22

    Mind you* I enjoyed the "Vision quest" type video prior to getting crushed at WTT, made me even more of a fan. I think he could be a marketable guy.

    Askren said Jacques and Mauller were redshirtting. Also Parker is at 149. Even if he wasn't, I wouldn't consider Edmond in the same wheelhouse as Degen either. https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/starters/weight/149/big-12 The only kid I don't see being able to beat him is that true frosh at the bottom, and I say that out of pure ignorance of the kid. All the others could beat him. His athleticism would have afforded him a power advantage against a lot of 141lbers who are/were better than him. At 149 he will be going up against some brutes.

    Bo and PD3 should fight each other in MMA at some point. I think a lot of people would be interested in watching that.

    Seabass to 125

    I don't think anyone is saying he doesn't wrestle back and if they were, they wouldn't be accurate. Even his 1st season, he won 4 matches in wrestlebacks to take 8th. The issue is more about the apparent "grit" he shows on the winner's side vs the consis. In many of the matches he won in the consis he was simply the superior wrestler. But, there were matches like NaTo his freshman season, where he looked like a deer in headlights and the match against Wilson he looked like he was already making his plans for Easter...

    Wouldn't he have to actually show up for a fight first?

    I unfortunately do just to try and keep up with things. I know Coach Smith would love to try and win the tournament in KC in 2024 hence the possibility of redshirts and I think Edmond has some serious talent to fill in for a year, then go back to 141 if Hart graduates or redshirt for a year. All speculation though, I'm excited for Mizzou's depth the next few years regardless.

    I feel so unloved. Kid is very tough, but give him until the 23/24 season to be an AA threat.

    Fantastic JB Interview on FRL

    I really hope the quote was real when he said Smith said about NIL deals: “you’re gonna need a deal with Band Aid because you’re gonna get your butt kicked the first year”

    You can fly into Fort Walton Beach or Panama City Beach. The Fort Walton Beach airport is closer to the arena. The Henderson Resort is a nice place to stay in Destin, but there are plenty of good options that time of the year. The 30a area is further from the arena between Destin and Panama City Beach but has some really great beachfront communities like Grayton, Seaside, Watercolor, Watersound, Alys and Rosemary where Airbnb’s should be readily available.

    2022 championship

    Cleveland 2018 and Pittsburgh 2019 were smack dab in the middle. Both were similar sized stadiums. I am not sure what the plan was for Minneapolis in a much larger facility.

    I think that must have been a typo on twitter as Gioffre and Essien (Who he wrestled earlier that night) have both been 149lbs in the past, and on track certified at 165 and 157 respectively. The match right before them was at 133 so I think it just got out of order.

    If you like Twitter drama (Nickal/Lewis)

    I don't think anything more or less from either. Nickal made two points and Lewis made zero points. If JB wanted to try MMA once he would have by now. -Unless this is a 'new' development for JB, then Nickal is true. -Nobody has stated otherwise, so unless told otherwise by JB or someone who can speak for him, I will accept it as true. Lewis took three years to get two fights in and Nickal took three months to get two fights in. -Nickal has gotten two fights in in three months. -Lewis has gotten two fights in in three years. The only thing that Nickal did wrong was let off the gas pedal. He wasn't wrong. This is MMA. Mouths make money. It is why Downey, IF he actually gets to a fight, will succeed at MMA, providing he doesn't just try to throw hands.

    So he wrestled up at 149 against a guy who wrestled 133 earlier in the night?

    Bo started it by throwing shade at Burroughs. Richie came to Burroughs defense. The part you linked to kinda leaves that out.

    I think he mostly means that Edmond was up at 149 instead of 141 with Hart.

    Mizzou had some interesting results but only a few "true" wrestle offs 125: Noah Surtin over Connor Brown 9-7 133: Trey Crawford over Korbin Shepard 4-2; Matt Schmitt didn't wrestle tonight but didn't have any obvious issues, I still think he'll end up starting 149: Josh Edmond over Logan Gioffre 12-4; this could end up being relevant if Mauller redshirts like some have predicted 174: Peyton Mocco over Sean Harman 5-3

    What were the period lengths? (I know- I run the event but...) If HS= 1-1:30-1:30 and MS- 1:30-1:30-1:30 two factors would come in. 1. It's MS vs HS. They aren't as good and get pinned more often. 2. We've found that the length of the first period helps determine this factor. More chance to get pinned off of a takedown.
