    they pretty much are. very little crossover. Do you need an address to send a check?

    Katie, 1. No, we aren’t. I just posted a few other countries where streaming rights are involved. 2. The styles have been combined at the Worlds since 2005. It’s what the Worlds are. So to be all unhappy about being forced to watch other styles ... that’s a personal choice, not one TW or Flo (or UWW or USAW events) is going to change in the near future. The event is what it is.

    Info relayed to me: India, Russia, Japan(?), USA and maybe 1-2 more. Eurosport has the broadcast rights and they can distribute either on their paid system or on TV. Depends on the event. And this info is second hand, so I can’t answer anything directly on it.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    A seed, to my knowledge, has zero to do with the Hodge. If you're unbeaten, you're still in Hodge contention. Sometimes, we have to put what's important for the sport at the forefront. If you've got a #1 guy, what do you have to hide? I don't grasp the fact one exhibition match was detrimental to Mark Hall in any way, shape or form. Oh, he got the #2 seed. Big whoop. Holding someone out to protect a seed? In NOVEMBER? That seems to fly in the face of the wrestling mentality of challenging all comers, right? Would it have made any difference if Hall and Valencia's seeds were flopped last year? No. They would have still met in the finals. They were clearly on another tier than the rest of the field. The Hodge has its own criteria. They gave it to a guy with a loss one year. They gave it to a NAIA guy another. Cael shared it with a D3 guy with a handful of losses another. The Hodge should be the least of any coach's worries when the first whistle blows in October. I don't care one way or the other. I'm just adding some fodder for the discussion.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    Situation to consider: When the NWCA owned InterMat, it was their policy that rankings not take into account the All-Star Classic. Some other places followed suit and others said “it’s a match, we are going to use it as a rankable match.” Is the issue less of the match itself or how almost all the individual rankings outlets now use the All-Star as a rankable match result? Whatever rankings promote a program the best are the rankings, in my experience, teams like to promote. Penn State, for example, will always use InterMat, it’s just what they’ve done since even before I was there (05-08) So what about the fans? We, in large, are smart enough to realize when a result happens at the All-Star, it should be a rankable result. But if coaches are looking at the half-dozen or so rankings to help set a guide to follow, and all of them count the All-Star, what is the right answer? Try to talk all the rankings into NOT counting a result and getting editorial blowback? It happened when I suggested that to a couple of outlets in 2006. Why should we be surprised the #1 guy in all 15 rankings ends up seeded #1?

    ... I had a factual, well-written reply ready to press submit, but it's the truth, so no one will care to read it. Off to Budapest tomorrow.

    I don’t have a problem rankings them, but WrestleStat doesn’t put subjective data there. What I would rank Gable is immaterial because I don’t do a strict statistical measure, which WS does. If someone doesn’t have the college results ... they don’t have results. The only thing I could see is ranking them based on any results they had wrestling college opens like Gable did.

    There's a handful, when I know for sure, I will reply with that information.

    So it’s your belief $3.33 per day is too expensive for an event that spans nine days?

    Validative experiences

    It would be an interesting topic to try to encapsulate for sure, but you're right, there'd have to be a lot of vetting and if we're being real, Gable doesn't remember every thing he's ever said to everybody, but it is an interesting theory of the Gable tree of inspirational stories.

    Another Gable one: Dan and I were brought in to do the commentary for the final scene of The Last Champion, which is likely to come out in the next few months. We were having dinner in the airport after a long day of shooting and he said, “I love the fact you get to make a living out of doing what you do.” Terry Brands has a few brief comments over the years that just put a smile on my face immediately. And yes, I’ve wanted to run through a wall afterwards.

    UWW released a new video on USA Men's Freestyle

    UnitedWorldWrestling.org Big link at the top that says “#BudaWrestle2018” Middle of the central content portion, there’s a link that says schedule. Hitting the PDF link is easiest on mobile devices. UWW typically has the upcoming big events in their main header links menu. Other events can be found on their event page, which is always on the main header.

    UWW contracts with Track to stream to the U.S. viewership. UWW is sending that signal out to its vendors (the U.S. isn't the only country that has a vendor charging PPV access). A comparison would be how NBC owns the broadcast rights for the Olympics in the U.S., even though the streams originate from OBS (Olympic Broadcasting Service). If you're watching the Olympics in Canada, you're not watching NBC, you're watching/streaming on who holds the Canadian rights.

    How could you statistically give anyone credit for pre-college achievement? It'd be arbitrary.
