  1. Big money is going with Sadulaev the next time these two wrestlers meet. But hey...don't just pick your favorite...let's get some skin into it. Let's bet, but let's use profile photos as our chips. If your wrestler wins, you keep your profile photo. If your wrestler loses, you have to choose the President of the country of the winning wrestler as your photo. Duration= One month. I've got Snyderman.

    Lost at Big Tens and Nationals his freshman year. Seemed to improve after that. Maybe the program is OK.

    Validative experiences

    I went to the 2006 Big Ten Wrestling Championships at Indiana, not only because I was joining a friend at Big Tens, but because a guy wrestling for Ohio State, who I had known from my gym, was trying to make it to Nationals. In a crucial match, he had it locked up, and then he got taken down in the last few seconds. He lost the next match, too, and he never went to Nationals After his near miss, I was working out in the gym at the hotel where I was staying in Indiana. It was a very small gym. Only enough room for two stationary bikes, two treads and a few free weights. The only other guy in that room was a guy in a hooded shirt on a stationary bike and me on a tread. I looked closer. It was Dan Gable. I got off of my treadmill and said hello. He asked me if I had a kid wrestling, and I replied that I was following a young Ohio State man from my gym who had just lost. He asked his name, and I told him. Gable said, "Hell of a double-leg." After that, I got back on the tread and absolutely killed myself to run hard in that hot room. After all, Gable was the only other person in the room. I was walking in the main area about an hour later, and I told my wrestling buddy about the Gable story. When asked about how hard I worked, I said "I did the best I could." Gable walked by the same time and said, "You did well." This is all true, and it ranks near the top of my validative experiences. Anyone else?

    Favorite team moments/performances

    Sorry JT#1, it was 10-3. http://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/three-buckeyes-claim-all-american-honors-at-2003-ncaa-wrestling-championships-4/ At 157, No. 2-seed Keaton Anderson, who entered the tournament nursing a knee injury, faced top-seed Luke Becker of Minnesota (in the consis). The two split a pair of matches earlier this season as Becker topped Anderson in the final of the Las Vegas Invitational, while Anderson settled the score with a 10-3 decision in the dual bout. Also... https://www.michigandaily.com/content/m-wrestlers-clutch-upset-over-buckeyes I agree about moving up to 157. I would add that Keaton got permission from Russ H. to train with Mike Davies at his Fitness Factory. I know he felt that training over there made him stronger and better equipped to make a run for the national title. That knee injury at Big Tens ruined things for him. A real good guy who deserved to win it all.

    Keaton Anderson over defending national champion Luke Becker 10-3 in the 2002 Ohio State vs. Minnesota dual in St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Loudest I ever heard it in St. John.

    Jadidi was a great friend of Elvis', and whenever Elvis sang "Blue eyes crying in the rain" at a concert, he always changed it to "Brown eyes crying in Iran" if his buddy Jads was in the crowd.

    Just Saying...Colon definitely won match 2

    All this dissension over the scoring- by people who follow the sport closely- proves the point: Inaccuracy and inconsistency leads to disinterest.
