  1. At some point, the passivity rule will cost JB a match. This entire match flowed the same way. A passivity against Burroughs in the first might well have been another in the second. What was the difference? The Iranian is impressive. I think Goudarzi will no longer represent Iran.
  2. Going from 220 pounds and second in the world as a cadet to a senior finalist at 163 in three weeks is implausible.
  3. Edit - Jaroslav beat me to it, but I'll be redundant. Looks like he placed 10th in Juniors/2008 His DB entries are looking pretty sweet. Apart from the single entry as a junior, he is all 1s: Date Competition Style Age Group Weight Class Country Rank 2013-09-16 World Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 0. 2013-05-19 United 4 Wrestling Multiple Style Event Seniors LL 74.0 USA 1. 2013-05-15 Rumble on the Rails Multiple Style Event Seniors LL 74.0 USA 1. 2013-03-01 Alexander Medved Prizes Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2013-02-21 World Cup Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2012-08-10 Olympic Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2012-05-12 World Cup Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2012-02-14 Cerro Pelado International Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2012-02-02 Dave Schultz Memorial International Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2011-10-23 Pan American Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2011-09-16 World Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 USA 1. 2008-07-29 World Championship Freestyle Juniors 66.0 USA 10.
  4. The seven point techs are working in JB's favor.
  5. Intermat video works, but the audio is out of synch and repeated itself. It is about 13 seconds behind.
  6. I'm not sure where you live, but on the west coast it is common to have free wifi at major venues or you can access it for a small fee. A friend of mine has a full time profession of making sure that wifi is properly installed at major venues and has good coverage throughout all the seating. Its been at Fargo for years and many other smaller venues. They have the wifi set-up at the Papp Lazslo arena. It just isn't open to the fans. Free WIFI is rare at major venues. This compounds the problem of spotty phone network due to overwhelming the networks with concentrated usage. The NFL has mandated that all stadiums provide WIFI because so many fans want to watch all of the other games, but so far only a couple have implemented it. You are lucky if you can make a phone call at Mile High on Sundays.
  7. Indian veteran, mid-level guy the past few years splitting between 74 nd 84. Gentry beat him the past couple of years. Im a bit worried over the next match because Burroughs did not look great in his first one. JB looked a little sloppy , but he was moving well on the go behinds. He'll be fine. Yadav is Smith in that part of the world! Here is his resume from the db: Date Competition Style Age Group Weight Class Country Rank 2013-09-16 World Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 0. 2013-04-18 Asian Championship Freestyle Seniors 84.0 IND 5. 2012-08-10 Olympic Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 13. 2012-05-25 Hari Ram Grand Prix Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 2. 2012-05-04 Olympic Qualification Tournament Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 1. 2012-04-27 Olympic Qualification Tournament Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 8. 2012-03-30 Olympic Qualification Tournament Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 5. 2012-02-02 Dave Schultz Memorial International Freestyle Seniors 84.0 IND 4. 2011-09-16 World Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 25. 2011-08-06 Commonwealth Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 2. 2010-11-23 Asian Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 7. 2010-10-09 Commonwealth Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 1. 2010-09-10 World Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 18. 2010-05-12 Asian Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 1. 2007-07-16 Commonwealth Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 2. 2007-05-08 Asian Championship Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 7. 2006-12-13 Asian Games Freestyle Seniors 74.0 IND 8. 2005-07-27 Asian Championship Freestyle Cadets 63.0 IND 3.
  8. Everyone told me I was too lazy to make finals. Doesn't that qualify me?
  9. Its a business. Mayweather went up a weight for a big payday.
  10. Has Dake even been wrestling? If Zeke Jones has to make an unfortunate decision, I'd think David Taylor would get the nod. He's been actively wrestling and practicing at the OTC.
  11. That implies the NCAA and not the member schools pay for travel expenses. Is that true for nationals and qualifiers?
  12. He explained the rationale very clearly. People don't want to attend or watch a tournament from 6AM -11:30PM for a solid week. Put me in that group. I like to eat, drink and be merry with my friends. Perhaps the semis and medal matches in the World Championships or Olympics should run by different criteria. Other tournaments for that matter. That is successful in many HS tournaments.
  13. The part of his anatomy meeting the criteria for a pin is clearly flat. However, you can't tell if that is a pin because a still picture doesn't provide information on time.
  14. Rumor has it that Yoel Romero sold a match against Georgia, got caught and defected. Isn't this Indian the ear muncher from 2012?
  15. This is political and not religious? What is driving the politics?
  16. That seems a definite outlier to me. How about we start with just one guy? There are foreigners, but I can't think of any Americans
  17. This is a usaw site. How many members are female? I agree with the moderator. You are entitled to opinion, but Usaw is not obliged to provide your forum.
  18. Because age has a direct correlation to physical deterioration. Very surprised you didnt know that. Wait..wait..wait. You just contradicted yourself. Either hard work always, as you state, always overcomes all other factors, or it doesn't. You can't generalize it in one sense and then treat it circumstantially in another. Your logic, a 70 year old man should be able to take a 30 year old man in an athletic contest, if the 70 year old man works harder. Gawd, how I hope that is not a serious comment.
  19. The most equitable change would be to add 58 kg and the eliminate 55 & 60. Then its only partially neutered.
  20. DT does a lot of independent clinics for significant cash, I wonder how he manages to do that and stay within the rules?
