  1. Babak Mohammadi wrestled at Oregon State in the 90s. He had a lot pf success, maybe 2 or 3 time AA..
  2. It is an organization. People make decisions based on dynamic inputs all the time. A person can take the responsibility to instruct a technical person to remove his name and redraw the bracket. That same person can turn heel and go pick up their significant other for breakfast. The latter decision is gonna make some noise. Let the lawyers sort it out between now and Tokyo. The latter decision allows the purpose of the tournament to be satisfied. I will wager most, if not all, of the supporters of this blind rules mentality will frown on it in contexts more significant than this one. How about handcuffed nine year-olds? It is department policy. Zero tolerance school rules? Expulsion for a rubber knife!
  3. You are trying to figure out what I meant by 125 years of wrestling after you subtracted 125 from 2021 and expressed it is the year of the first modern Olympic games? Moving on, I say Cox is one of the top 100 American freestylers of the last 125 years. He has earned 13 minutes of deference.
  4. I can't think of any real interaction with Iran other than sports. Well, there is military but that is always bad. Personal travel to Iran seems hopeless. There is no business, so not even money brings us together. I don't think wrestling is popular enough for significant impact.
  5. Wrestling in the modern era, which YOU were quick to acknowledge.
  6. The criteria should be number of FS senior nationals won! :)
  7. How was your capitalization back in the day? LOL
  8. Sure, lets live life to its fullest and most complete! He is lower half of 100.
  9. Another factor: the ones who miss have added incentive to earn bonus.
  10. Don't forget ONE and Bellator! You are on this topic like white on rice!
  11. J'Den Cox has proven himself. End of story. How many people have accomplished more than him in 125 years of USA Wrestling? A 13 minute snafu has not rendered a sure fire Hall of Famer unreliable.
  12. Appears less reliable? No, he doesn't. He is reigning WC. Olympic bronze medalist. His reliability is impeccable.
  13. Every organization I have ever been involved in. School. Work. Family. Getting pulled over by the cops. Every ruleset requiresa decision.
  14. Can you honestly put yourself in Rich Bender's position and say you would have rejected Cox's weigh-in? I would not have made that decision in a million years.
  15. I don't get this. At all. It is bureaucracy gone mad. Putting some humanity in your leadership and cutting a guy 13 minutes slack is the only rational decision USAW should have made. How is this even a decision? I don't care why J'Den Cox wasn't on weight at 8:00. It is totally unimportant. He communicated his clock was off before 8, he worked up a sweat and he made weight at 8:13. He would have wrestled around 11 hours later. Wow.
  16. Illinois is a plum job. Already middle tier B10, top5 wrestling state, pretty good tradition. So much potential for the right HC
  17. Me too. He hit a rough patch in his life and got some redemption.
  18. Seriously folks - a guy wins a bronze in the Olympics, he is reigning world champion, is one of, if not the, most positive ambassadors for your organization and you can't give a ten minute benefit of the doubt? We do not understand what leadership is.
  19. A little too cut and dry is the whole point.
  20. Howe was big, but Tsirtsis was relieved of his duties at NW. Most gobsmacking transfer result is definitely Bubba.
