  1. I think we can rule out prominent wrestlers drinking out of the wrong bottle. Imma go with Suriano to Penn State at 125
  2. 1)Kyle Snyder - Just an opinion based on my impression of him - the odds of Sadulaev going to worlds is minimal. 2) Taylor is looking pretty good for it so I'll put him next. Yazdani is overdue for his slice of the pie, however. 3) Jordan Burroughs is rejuvenated. Love the return of the doubles. Thanks, coach Slay. 4) Cox is phenomenal, but has been inconsistent. I was tempted to put him 1st. 5)Kyle Dake is at best third in the world. Has a shot, but has a lot to prove at 74kg since he was a big step down from the top two. I don't see a possibility better than 10 percent from the other 5, so we'll go with the untested. 6) Yianni - Once beat Bajrang, so he has a world class win. 7) Daton Fix, is he another Steveson story? 8)Thomas Gilman - his career impresses the hell out of me, but he does not. 9)James Green - who is this guy? IDK, but I love him and hope for the best. 10) Gwiz - Looked really good at trials, so I think he'll have a good tournament.
  3. Looked it up, 9.98 isn't bad for a 54 year old!
  4. The dude is seriously frustrated
  5. Thanks for posting, looks like just what he needs. Serious grass drill skills.
  6. Maybe Ravaughn Perkins. He got popped for a water pill, but I don't recall if that was before or after he made a world team.
  7. Is that political? Seems true across the board.
  8. Is it too late for him to change his mind? Seems like if he wanted to compete, he should be able to.
  9. Yep, only I know the reason HWC is flat broke. KMF stole that money after he poured some truth serum down Perry. He is one step ahead of Johnny Law and buying the ladies "drinks" down to Mexico with that money. If you know what I mean and you do know what I mean.
  10. It was all Askren, that was exactly what he hoped for when he set Burroughs up.
  11. That's only half. Now you have to be inclined enough to find him talking about how tough 79 is now. That is going to take alot more inclination.
  12. This seems overstated. Only a couple of countries were able to field a full team. Outside of Russia, very few countries were running two deep on medal contenders at any weight. Anyway, here is a good article on where the Olympic wrestlers actually come from. Transferring is straightforward and I bet it is not hard to read the tea leaves of your future in the Russian Wrestling Federation fairly early on. Wrestlers only transferred from three countries, one of which is Cuba and they are probably looking for something other than wrestling. For the US, my impression is Micic has strong ties to Serbia and would prefer representing them.
  13. Sounds like people are implying Dake isn't a real champ. I don't see where JB's assessment of 79 magically changed just because he is in it. Link?
  14. During his post match interview, he was asked if he was happy and replied he would be much happier if his leg didn't hurt. Doesn't sound like a cramp.

  16. How did this discussion morph into active college wrestlers? Of the Olympians and world reps, only Gable and Yianni are college students. Why aren't there any world class wrestlers in the HWC?
  17. It is awkward for me, but as you said - he followed the rules. We are way too easy on PED users.
  18. Fun fact: Zillmer competed at less than half this size as a HS sophomore.
