    Just put a bit of water in the bottom of a saucepan and let it cook inside covered for a couple minutes if you dont have a proper steamer. If you have a pan with a steaming compartment, steam as normal.

    Dake-Dieringer live thread

    In freestyle why in the world would you open up when you're up 4-0? When you open up you expose yourself some too, and one 4 pointer and Ringer wins. He did exactly what he should have up 4-0 in a do or die series.

    Not that great. Better. 1. 4x champ. One of four ever. 2. NO REDSHIRT 4x champ. Only one ever. Can't be emphasized enough. 3. Moved up on purpose to wrestle the defending and future Hodge winner and future world champ. Beat him three times in three different kinds of matches, twice from behind. 4. Beat two Iowa and two Penn State guys in the finals. Those four were: Guy who won Hodge year before and year after. Guy who was undefeated champ the year after and future Olympian. Dake put a literally humiliating beating on him with a shocking 6 minutes plus of riding time. Guy who was champ the next year. Guy who in future lost OT in finals and lost OT in semis to champ in one of most controversial matches ever. 5. Undefeated last two years. NCAAs those years: Jr. year: 1st pd fall, 1st pd fall, 2d pd fall, 4-0, 4-1 Sr. year: First four matches: 29-0. Final vs 2x Hodge winner (who had pinned way to finals with three in first period and won in 3:25), 5-4 with late stalling point, opponent took off ankle bands with time still on clock. 6. Did all this while dealing with going to class and getting good grades at Ivy League college, which I guarantee you was a factor in his (few) losses.

    huh? sumo matches are like 12 seconds long. this was nothing like sumo. people need to watch more sumo and stop using it as a pejorative to describe anything they don't like about other wrestling styles.

    More on Greco v. Freestyle

    Last style is typically the preferred style of the host nation. Kazakhstan are hosting and they prefer freestyle. Junior worlds, for example, were in Estonia, a greco nation, so Greco was last.

    This is hardly an outlandish take. Snyder is a great technician, a physical monster, and an absolute force of will. But Sadulaev is a once in a generation phenom--already an all-time great at 23 (allegedly). He's lost 3 times in his entire career, and only once since 2013 (to Snyder). Sort of? He teched everyone at World's last year, including Odikadze who holds 1 win over Snyder back in 2016, and obviously pinned Snyder. Most recently he teched Baitcaev in their wrestle off. But he's had a couple of close ones as well... namely a 3-1 win and a 3-0 win at Euros. It's not rocket science, but I think Snyder's approach has to be to keep the match close, and make it extremely physical for the first 4:30. If he's going to get him, it's going to be late. And also, to reign in his damn adrenaline in the first 30 seconds of the match. It nearly cost him the match in 2017 and obviously cost him in 2018.

    Koll on the Arbitration

    I really do not understand the extreme hatred for Koll by some people, or Cael Sanderson. Both have done amazing things as wrestlers and coaches. Both have found a level of success never before seen by their programs. Both have positively impacted more young men than most of us could ever dream of. This current situation really comes down to both coaches did what they felt was necessary to protect their wrestlers. The call was made on the mat. The correct scoring is debatable but the call was made and the score reflected that on the scoreboard. Should the score have changed? I have yet to see a definitive answer on whether or not 2-2 was even allowed. If it wasn't, a protocol is to be followed, which wasn't. Regardless, there is a rule in place for a challenge, the rule wasn't followed. All of these procedures and rules are put in place to make sure that the correct scoring occurs and the wrestlers know the score during the match. Cael decided to challenge the score on the scoreboard at the end of the match. I guess he didn't like the outcome and chose to try and get it changed, which I do not blame him for at all! Due to a complete disregard for the rules and procedures clearly outlined in the rule book (not the guideline book as some would suggest), he did get the outcome changed. At this point, Koll decided to follow the procedures in place to protect his wrestler because he did not like the how the outcome of the match was changed after the fact. So he followed the procedure and got the match thrown out. Really, the match should have been awarded to Yianni but I suppose a compromise was reached. The claim is being made that Zain is the better wrestler. Sure, you can argue that but it is not material fact. It also would not be a fact to say Yianni is a better wrestler than Zain. Yianni is not yet the world team rep. He has to win 2 matches in a row to earn that spot. This process just got him the right to try and win the spot, which he should have considering the miserable handling of match 2. If Zain is clearly the better wrestler, he will know doubt win at least 1 of the 2 matches. Especially since they seem to go back and forth with adjustments and Yianni dominated the last match. This process is still heavily to Zain's advantage. If Zain wins the first match, he is the rep. If Yianni wins the first match, they will wrestle again. If Zain wins the 2nd match, you will hear complaints that the first match should have been the deciding factor and Yianni got screwed. Not from me, but it will get said. If Yianni wins the 2nd match, it will be a very clear indication of who the better wrestler is right now. Maybe he is just better, maybe the injury is the reason or any other number of factors, but right now it should be a clear indication. Yianni will have won the last 3 matches (Dogu and 2 in a row) which could be argued 4 (2nd match at WTT). People will argue that Zain got screwed. Either way, this at least removes SOME of the doubt as to who should be representing USA. BUT, it will not stop the bickering. I just wish people would stop attacking Koll or Cael for doing their job as Coaches. They are both near top of the best coaches list (Cael is AT the top & Koll hasn't won a title, I know). Both of them do amazing things for their wrestlers, their programs and the sport of wrestling. This situation changes none of that! I have strong connections to all parties involved (Penn State, Cornell, Zain & Yianni). I am not rooting for either wrestler to win or lose. Both are great young men from great families, members of great programs and led by great coaches. I just want to see a process that is as fair as it can be. Match 2 at the WTT was extremely unfair to Yianni and I would say the exact same thing if the roles were reversed. This outcome is about as fair a compromise as one could imagine.

    Greco Day 3...Coon, Smith, Hafizov

    lol you guys expect them to hand all gold medals to Russia. don't you ? sometimes you have to score yourself. another passivity parterre ? you really should improve your knowledge about wrestling rules before complaining !! per rules. only 2 passivity parterre is possible for a match. no parterre for the 3rd passivity caution. and they only award it in case of 1-1 score. Surkov simply walked into the final with the dream draw he had. Borrero survived a brutal draw beating so many tough guys including Staebler and Ryu Han-su.

    Hi LJB, That is one way to do it but I have found if you love wrestling, you can learn any style. It depends on your end game I guess. I remember in the my final trials match in 92 I lost to Dan Henderson. Dan was a great all around wrestler but he didn't take the traditional college route after HS and went to Russia to train in GR. Worked for him but I would say it is even more difficult today because you are dealing with fewer weight classes (Olympic years anyway). Right off the bat you have a 40% lower chance of making the team than in say 1992 because of this alone. I remember when someone asked Lincoln McIlravy why he retired and he simply stated because I didn't have a weight class anymore. Personal opinion though...I think the Olympics are way over rated and there are much better opportunities to pursue. I had three sons all wrestle through HS and I was their coach. All enjoyed the sport and what it offered them and they wouldn't trade the experience for anything. However, none of them had the same level of passion I did for the sport and now pursue different professions. In the end, to even keep them in a sport as demanding as wrestling is a challenge...especially when the world around them offers instant gratification. I digress though as that is another topic altogether.

    Jimmy's pulling deep in to the well... If his legacy was Heil-like going into his senior season, then I could see where that has effect. But his was of always looking to score, sometimes with dynamic, creative stuff that many if not all had never seen before. One tight match with a little controversy doesn't impact his legacy at all.

    Iran Wrestling News

    I was expecting more but It wasn't that bad. Saravi and Taheri could medal. Geraei and Abdevali could be in the final if they could use their brain. the only disappointment was Kaviani. this is a very young team. first World Senior Champs for 8 of them. most of them were in the junior team in past couple of years. and I care more about the Olympic quotas. they got 2 and Geraei has a chance to make it 3. no country won more than that. even Russia got just 3. I think 87kg and 97kg won't be a problem for Iran to qualify the weight in Asia, but 67kg doesn't look good. they have to try someone else next time. Hamed Tab is not the answer

    You have a valid point that if you base it off of recent international results alone, it looks like he is going to dnp and I am not refuting that. However, if you look deeper into it, I think it paints a bigger picture as to where he is at compared to the top of the world. His Yasar results stem from losing to Yianni (who he has now beaten twice when it mattered) and then defaulting out of the rest of the tournament because of an injury. His Yarygin result is from losing to a 2018 World silver medalist by a last second takedown and then being eliminated when Rashidov didn’t make the finals. Before those results, his only international loss was from almost two years ago to another worlds silver. So his only losses to foreign wrestlers in the last two years have been to world medalists in competitive matches. Now I am not saying I think he will medal nor am I saying I think he won’t. I’m just saying that from what I see, he’s right there with the elite of the elite skill wise even though his credentials don’t necessarily show that yet.

    Suriano to redshirt

    The way I read the Rutgers release is that he's red shirting to pursue Olympic hopes. Not necessarily an Olympic red shirt. And with the us open being before the start of the second semester it would allow a lot of the names mentioned a chance to get back on the mats by then if they see they're not in the range.

    Even assuming Dake did more schoolwork, that does not make him a better wrestler. Dake's wrestling is judged according to his wrestling, not according to his courseload or, for that matter, the amount of time he spent feeding the hungry, healing the sick or walking his dog.

    My initial thought was 2 red, and I believe after rewatching it was pretty clearly the right call. Yianni's action was stopped. Zain started trying to roll him. Yianni tried to kind of initiate his own roll, but Zain had already started his own move.

    We need 10 Olympic weights

    Yes. I do agree. Like I said, I would prefer 10. But I figure I’d point out the one positive. Very happy UWW went back to 10 in non-Olympic years. Wish Olympics would do the same. In the meantime, the drama that comes with the reduction to 6 is entertaining to this fan.

    Ringer had absolutely zero for Dake

    We'll see what happens with possibly, Dieringer going up to 86 and Dake going down to 74 for Olympic Trials. But today, it didn't look like Ringer was that much bigger or stronger than Dake, if at all. Anyway, congrats to Kid Dynamite. Nice to see him healthy. (Would have like to see him open it up more but guess he did what he had to do to get the win.) Congrats to Alex too. He's had an awesome freestyle season and he had a great attitude throughout this whole Dake injury saga. Seems like a great kid.

    Alborz (Karaj) is a province for a very long time, 10 years I think I have to say Younes Emami isn't actually from Tehran, he is from Kermanshah but he lives in Shahriar (Tehran province) for a long time. so he is representing Tehran province technically. I don't think Hadi's back problem was that much serious. he only had to check with the doctors to make sure.

    Ringer had absolutely zero for Dake

    Downey wouldn't beat Hidlay right now. Ringer would bulk-smash him.

    Yianni won the arbitration. Next steps?

    I believe that is what this whole debate part of this started...vague rulebook. Some of the sequences that played out were known by officials, one official even made a training video that was published. He scored the major sequence in question opposite of how he said to score in video. Too much left for interpretation. But its alot better than it used to be.
