    I have compared 2 time periods - 1960-1991 with 1993-2021 to estimate the impacts on medal counts for the former Soviet Union and Soviet bloc countries before and after the soviet union breakup. It is an excel workbook with 2 pages and would print on 4 printed pages. If you can't get excel and would like to look at, email me and I will paste it into Word or something else (timjoemcc@gmail.com). The information is shown by country for both time frames with total medal count and gold medal count. I found it pretty interesting to do but I am a nerd number type guy - not for everyone I know. The several key messages are: * The Soviet Union won 26% of all medals and 46% of gold medals in the 32 year period from 1960-1991. The former Soviet Union won 47% of all medals and 53% of gold medals in the 29 year period from 1993-2021. Russia performed much better in acquiring gold medals than did the other 10 countries in the former FSU that won wrestling medals. * The USA won 13% of all medals and 13% of gold medals in the 1960-1991 time frame. The Soviet Union won 113 more medals than the US and 100 of them were gold during this period. The USA won 11% of all medals and 16% of gold medals in the 1993-2021. The US medal count dropped overall but the % of gold medals increased. The US had 45 fewer gold medals than Russia and 85 fewer than FSU. * As everyone knew, the breakup of the Soviet Union led to the FSU countries dramatically increasing their total and gold medal counts. * I compared the Soviet Bloc countries to see what happened to them (Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Yugoslavia). Their total medal count went from 26% of all medals down to 6% after the Soviet breakup and the gold medal count went from 9% of all gold to 4% of all gold. So the change was dramatic and the opposite of the countries in the FSU. I had not realized this impact and don't know why it happened (eg. maybe the Soviet Union subsidized wrestling in these countries and the money dried up?, or ???). * The combination of the Soviet Union + Soviet Bloc won 51% of total medals and 55% of gold medals before the Soviet breakup and 52% of all medals and 57% of gold medals after the breakup. So the breakup of the Soviet Union made it harder for a non Soviet related someone to win a medal but not nearly as dramatic as when you look at the FSU numbers alone. * One other detail, the average number of weight classes was 9.4 for the 1960-1991 period and 8.0 for the 1993-2021 period. So the wrestling talent was more concentrated in the fewer weight classes in the post Soviet break up era (same number of wrestlers in ~85% of the weight classes). * Wrestling medals increased for Cuba, India, and Iran after the Soviet break up (as measured by % of total medals won). Turkey remained constant. Every other significant wrestling country had their overall medal count drop after the Soviet break up - including the US which went from 13% to 11% of the total medal count as mentioned previously. Japan had the biggest drop - they went from 9% of all medals to 3% of all medals.Soviet Breakup Info.xlsx I can send anyone a list of all the wrestlers names, medals, weights, countries that I used if you want the next level of detail. Just email me if you are a glutton for data.

    Marcus, You do the sport no favors when you spout off incorrect stats and figures as if they are gospel. I provided you the exact information you SHOULD be talking about when beating the Title IX drum. I want you to voice your opinion, but I also want you to do it from an educated stance - I disproved two of your claims in two minutes. Others can do the same when you bring that argument to the table. I'm glad being educated on an issue and having the factual information to back it up is considered "fancy." It seems you have a rounding error somewhere.

    Over a week since Worlds have finished, and I wanted to write my 2 cents on where we are at now with what I would say is the biggest rivalry in World Wrestling right now in Yazdani Vs Taylor. I have some spare time so done this just to generate some conversation, debate and see others thoughts. Let’s go back to 2017 when this all started. The freestyle world cup was being held in Iran, Yazdani the year before had won Olympic Freestyle Gold at 74kg in dramatic fashion, and it was Iran’s first Freestyle gold in 16 years. Yazdani had moved up to 86kg for the first time since the Olympics, and this was his first tournament to test out his new weight. He had 2 other matches apart from Taylor during the 2 days, one against Turkey and the other against Mongolia, and in the style he had back then he absolutely ran through them with pace and techd both of them. Now to the first match between these 2. Unlike Yazdani, Taylor at this point was not that well known on the international scene, and had not achieved any great accolades. Certainly nothing that would make folk feel that he could beat the Olympic Gold medallist in Iran. A lot of people including wrestling media and such remember this match and say that Taylor was down 8-0 at one point and came from behind with the fall. The truth is that Taylor was only ever down 3-0 at the most going into the 2nd period. I think why so many people remember it incorrectly as it being so much more is that it certainly LOOKED and felt like it could have been that scoreline. For the best part of 2 minutes, Yazdani was ragdolling Taylor around the place with his underhook like an empty tracksuit, and Taylor got 2 cautions to his name, and was close to losing via DQ. But on points itself, Taylor actually managed to avoid what most people at this point would have been techd by, and survive going into the 2nd period which we all know he won by fall. I think at this point a lot of Iran, Yazdani, and his team attributed this loss to moving up for the first time at 86kg, clearly gassing and losing via fall because of this. Attributing this purely to the weight change and the gas tank and not giving credit to Taylor on this first occasion is what I feel led to what becomes the 2nd loss against Taylor in Budapest. So moving on 1 year to Budapest in 2018 at the worlds. Taylor missed the 2017 worlds as he lost to Cox in the US trials, and from their first match to here, Yazdani had competed in many tournaments at 86kg and gone undefeated, winning everything in dominant fashion including the 2017 world championship. Any presumed weight issues back at the first Taylor loss look well and truly rectified. As crazy wrestling draws go, what should be the final ends up being the first match of these two at the 2018 worlds. I really believe that going into this match the team around Yaz felt that now that he is accustomed to the weight that he will run through Taylor just like he does everyone else, not giving Taylor’s own style and his own work to nullify Yaz any analysis proves to be a downfall in Budapest. I know Yaz was motivated to avenge being pinned in his own country against the American, and he wanted to go out there and prove a point. In what becomes the highest scoring affair of their 4 matches so far, Yaz goes out and does his thing, but only gets a 6-2 lead at the end of the first period, after putting a lot of energy into trying to take Taylor out in the first. When we enter the 2nd period, it is clear Yaz is fading and Taylor is doing incredibly well off scrambles and keeps collecting points. Yaz concedes 9 points in the 2nd period, many off his own attempts to score. Now to Yazdani, the coaching staff, and many of his beloved Iranian fans it’s starting to be clear that this wasn’t simply a weight change and gas tank issue back in 2017. This wasn’t a fluke. There’s something in David Taylor and his skillset which means Yaz can’t just run through him. Now Iran needs to look at him more seriously. 2-0 is the score now. A whole 3 years goes by before they meet again, with the pandemic, injuries, finally they meet in the Olympic final for the 3rd time. Both older and more mature. David Taylor hungry to achieve his dream of being an Olympic Gold Medallist. Hassan having the weight of millions of Iranians on his shoulders to not only become the first Iranian Double Olympic gold medallist in Freestyle, but also avenge the loss to the only man who seems to have his number. An expectation that seems to be beyond doubt to most of Iran. Straight away it is much more clear that after the first two matches, Yazdani is no longer underestimating Taylor. A very different match takes place than those we have seen before, with almost no offence from Yazdani, trying to essentially just the shut match down and get some pushouts. Taylor does manage to find a takedown, but with 3-2 in favour of Yaz with 17 seconds ago, it seems that Yaz might secure his Olympic Gold in a very tight and cagey affair. Yazdani feels it’s done, but he makes a mistake and Taylor gets the last second takedown and takes Olympic Gold. Yazdani heartbroken, the fear of the backlash from fans back home in his mind, and all the hardwork seemingly to have gone to waste. 3-0 now against Taylor. One of the big turning points in this rivalry I feel is how Iran received Yazdani after this 3rd loss. Outcry of sympathy, popularity rising even higher, sharing his heartbreak in Gold being taken out of his hands with seconds left instead of scolding him. I will be honest I thought he might take a break and not attend the worlds with less than 2 months between the 2. If Iran had turned his back on Yazdani after the 3rd loss, I think we would be 4-0 at this point in time. Less than two months pass and this is the quickest turnaround of these two facing each other again. World championships so soon after Olympics due to the pandemic. A historical moment for wrestling. Taylor is attending as he is hungry for more gold. And Yazdani, is wanting to make up for what happened in Tokyo only 6 weeks prior. Let’s make no mistake about it, credit to both these guys for continuing the hard grind after winning Olympic gold and silver, to come to Oslo. And for Yazdani to put it on the line, because 4-0 would have been devastating for him. In their latest and fourth match, it was clear that the high scoring match from Budapest will no longer be the case from here on in. These are going to be chess matches from now on, with every tweak and adjustment made proving the decisive factor. Also emotionally, I could see in through the week Hassan was a lot more relaxed compared to Tokyo. In the match itself Yazdani finally looked to have a good balance going hard enough with the underhook to be able to last 6 minutes, but also not be too defensive to not have a big enough gap to fall back on like the case in Tokyo, and initiate takedowns. In the end a big cry of emotion as he finally got a score on the board against Taylor and became world champion for the 3rd time. In someways making up for Tokyo a few months prior, but more so doing so in a convincing fashion that made his fans proud. This was more than just revenge for Hassan, this was trying to make reality what he felt inside of himself. That there is not a massive gap between him and Taylor, and that 3-0 could easily have been flipped the other way or 2-1 either way. Every single match has been different, but every single match has been close. Whenever round 5 will be, it will still be very tough to call. So where are we now? Please feel free to discuss, but here are my own take homes at the moment: 4 very different matches, but 2 things I feel has been consistent throughout: -Yazdani in all four matches bosses Taylor around with the underhook, David still has not found an answer for this. -Yaz is in the lead going into the second period every time, and Taylor makes his comeback to win in the 2nd. This is true of all the matches, except that in Oslo, Taylor could not manage to rally back, but this was his gameplan, he didn’t attempt one attack in the first period. With all that being said what is likely to happen in round 5? If Yaz paces himself like he has done in the last two matches it is harder for Taylor to rely on compensating for however much he is down by in the first period, and doing the damage in the 2nd. Is Taylor willing to be more aggressive in the first period next time? On the other hand Taylor still managed twice to get under the legs of Hassan in the last two matches where Hassan was being more cautious and defensive, in Tokyo he was successful on both and won the match, in Oslo he failed on one of them and it proved costly. It could have been a very different match if Taylor finished that takedown. A fascinating rivalry, and the scoreline of 3-1 does not give true context to the nature of how close this battle is. Sad and Snyder are 3-1, but I think 95% of folk would feel Sad wins the next how many encounters unless we see some drastic change. But this one is tough to call. The momentum is going with Yazdani, and Taylor can’t rely on him gassing anymore. Anything could happen next time. Thoughts?

    From UWW: "I really wanted to win in Oslo, because five-time world champion sounds better than four-time champion." "Years of work pays off and thank God I won again. I always have tough matches with Snyder. I could barely get off the mat at the Olympics, today I was tired at the end, but everything went well." "In Tokyo, I immediately began to attack, but here in the first period I decided to see what he would do. I understood his tactics, and in the second period I did not let him take the lead." "I don't have any special tactic for the matches against Snyder. I know he is trying to wear me out. So I was trying to make him wrestle my way and not let him set his own rules. In the end, I noticed that he got more worn out than me." "Personally, I think [Snyder] was better prepared physically and mentally at the Olympics. I was more tired there. It was easier to win [for me] here." ___ Nothing too shocking, although I found the last sentence interesting. I expected Sadulaev might point to his knee injury as a reason for the closer match in Tokyo, but he pointed to Snyder being better prepared for that match instead.

    Taylor is: 1) 4 years older than Yazdani 2) just accomplished his life-long dream 3) has settled down and started a family 4) is running his own business I would be surprised if Taylor ever beats Yazdani again. He held on just long enough--and even then, only just.

    https://www.flowrestling.org/video/7181681-hbcu-wrestling-and-morgan-state-announce-new-wrestling-program "HBCUW will reestablish wrestling programs on HBCU campuses, starting with Morgan State University. Over the course of the next five years, HBCUW will launch wrestling programs and begin endowments at six HBCUs with the goal of expanding access to the opportunities created by wrestling for the Black community, expanding the Black community’s footprint and power within the sport, and investing in the critical institutions that HBCUs represent. " This is so awesome!!! I have told my Wife for years, that if I had ever won the lottery one of the first things I would do is endow the wrestling program at Howard University. Seems like someone else had a similar dream!! I wonder how they will pick the next 5 teams (Location, History, Support)? The coaching search for Morgan should be interesting!!

    What move/technique is this?

    if i had to equate it to a specific move i would most likely call it a crucifix... but... it is just using what you can for an exposure... my oldest was at western regionals a few years ago and was up 8-0 on a kid... his opponent was not versed in free... dove in on a leg as if he was going to waste about 30 seconds praying for a stalemate like he was wrestling the stall fest... my son just rotated and hooked his outside arm with his leg and turned him easily for an exposure... kid's "coach" lost his damn mind because he did not understand free techniques any better than his wrestler... i just waited in the chair until he stopped making a fuss and we could shake hands and move on with our lives...

    Since I assume you mean Division I, here's the facts. Men's Lacrosse has more programs at the end of the 2018-19 year than they did in 1982. (73-50). The percentage of schools sponsoring is also up two percent. Men's Golf has 299 programs in 2018-19, they had 263 in 1982. The percentage of schools sponsoring is down 10 percent. In 1982, 263 of 276 D1 schools had men's golf. That number is now 299/351. There have been significant losses in men's gymnastics, 59-15 (but at most, only 21% of Division I institutions sponsored the sport to begin with). Swimming is almost always a target. Men's Swimming & Diving is down 50 programs, from 181 to 131. So while Title IX played a prominent role in the decisions of departments and the NCAA and the law allowed Prong One (Proportionality) do most of the gutting in the mid-90s, if you're going to use sports as a crutch for your argument, use the right ones. At the end of 1997 alone, NCAA wrestling teams dropped by 29. The second biggest drop came with a loss of 17 teams (all 3 NCAA divisions) in 1987. There was a rush of 20 teams that came on in 1996, but most of those were existing programs which reclassified from the NAIA (like the entire RMAC). If you're looking at straight numbers: Fencing (down 22) Gymnastics (down 44) Rifle (down 31) Rowing (down 1) Skiing (down 9) Tennis (down 26) Volleyball (down 11) Water Polo (down 3) Wrestling (down 71) Most HBCU's are so female-enrollment heavy WITH football, it'd be a disaster with them to try to add sports because they'd be so far out of compliance with all three prongs of gender equity even before getting the money for it.

    Yes. One of a few legit things on his resume. Too bad he leaves off other things we know about in the wrestling community like 6 combined months at 2 top 5 college programs, not because he left...he got shown the door. "IF" he did resign from either it was because a. he was told he would be terminated because you can't coach a juco in Kansas while being in Cali (although we might need to credit him for creating Zoom calls). b. threatening to show pictures of a wrestler's mom if he entered the tranfer portal didn't sit well at a Jesuit University. Both were top 5 teams in NJCAA and DII respectively. GOOGLE! I really wish we had SAFE SPORT or something like Character Check through NWCA for College hires. We need legit people that care, invest, stay in the communities and grow the sport. I know we have horrendous pay at the non DI levels in our sport and that goes beyond head coaches too. The amount of vacancies out there for 2 and 4 year programs in the "hotbed" midwest is assinine, but so is what somehead and assistant coaches get paid. I would love to see every school truly invest in wrestling like Basketball/Women's Basketball. Less players yet more coaches (many times paid, not a partial gig either) We need benefits and more. We need to create a pool of wrestlers interested in coaching...at the end of the year (or hell now), every coach in the country at the college 4 year level needs to sit down and find out who all on their team might want to get into coaching. Send me the dam list...we have so many interim heads, so many just graduated head coaches and so much more. We have positions at our colleges for guys/gals that dedicated 4 years to a program. But colleges need to start paying better than what they are, because nobody wants to come up from the high school ranks if you are paying 15 - 20 k less a year for more headaches and longer seasons!

    I wrestled in it in 2002 at 197. Previous weekend was brutal... both our 197 guys got knee injuries. I was weighing 211 and drew Kevin Hoy of Air Force at the OU Open. Back then no desent plan, so I cut down to 197 and coach took me. I drew a tough Wisconsin guy first round that was ranked 18th or something at the time, and then lost to an Iowa Central guy in the consos. Got to watch a lot of dam good wrestling. Would love to get back there to work the event as a play by play guy if ever given the opportunity.

    When I was coaching in college I had a guy leave about a half dozen messages with our athletic secretary wanting to join our program as an assistant (there was no job opening, he just wanted a job); he explicitly told her to tell me that he had "coached with Dan Gable." I had never heard of the this guy before, and I knew the main staff members at Iowa for the past decade or so, but I this guy's name did not ring any bells. I thought he had possibly been a grad assistant or volunteer coach or maybe associated with the HWC. When I could finally track it down, I discovered he had been a counselor at a Dan Gable wrestling camp for a week about 20 years before. He finally landed a high school job using the same ploy and was fired within two months of getting the job (I'm sure Gable was pissed to see a beloved protege treated so disrespectfully). Got me thinking about all the folks I "coached with" in my lifetime....

    Most HBCU's are very female dominant enrollment wise, which may explain part of the reason why I enjoyed my time Howard University so much (Morgan State was our toughest conference opponents back then too) ! That being said would it help if they added both a Woman's and a Men's wrestling team at the same time? Right now the only 4 year HBCU with wrestling is Allen in SC, which is an AME sponsored school that participates in the NAIA. It makes me wonder if Allen could figure out how to do this, why can't Wilberforce (HBCU) another AME sponsored school that participates in the NAIA, in High school wrestling rich Ohio do the same thing?

    Is JB now the American GOAT?

    Re Reinoso loss: Smith (and Cowboys in general, I think) didn't put as much emphasis on total domination as, say, the Brands, e.g. in the 91 US Open Smith opened up a huge lead on a young Tom Brands, but once the score was out of reach he gave up a few takedowns without any attempt to counter. Smith's defence was as good as his offense, but he didn't seem all that interested in the shut out. In contrast, Terry Brands lost Olympic gold bc he refused to concede an imminent takedown and gave up a feet-to-back as a result. Reinoso was always a tough match for Smith, but that match was more-or-less meaningless . . . Like when NFL teams rest their starters after cliching play-off berths.
