    As Gary Delaney from Mock The Week might say-

    It is in the nature of language to change.  For example, it feels like you are trying to change the nuance of the word integrity.  It is integrity if there is strong conviction to take the moral high ground.  Not religious beliefs.  There is no universal nature to those.  A better word for that is pious.

    What weight did they make?  If not scratch 86 keggers, it isn't a match at 86kg?  Maybe by design.

    The Gazette reported that he's back in the room.  That has to be encouraging news.

    this is the question nobody can answer perfectly. we never had an accurate poll or something like that. people can only speak based on their own experience. for example everybody in my family and in both my parents family dislike the regime but that doesn't mean everybody in the country hates them as well ! they have their own supporters . I can't give a percentage , nobody can but it's surely less than 50%. probably much less.
    but I can say they are much more unpopular in big cities. people are more religious in smaller places and therefore the regime have more supporters in those places. most of Iranian top wrestlers come from small villages so it makes sense if the majority of them at least don't hate the regime. and I have to say being religious is not always equal to supporting the regime. they may support some elements of the regime but not necessarily the whole system.
    but one thing is for sure that people in Iran are getting less and less religious . I mean comparing to 20 years ago. and to be honest I don't think "religious fundamentalists" exist in Iran, you NEVER hear an Iranian do a suicidal attack anywhere. I believe even those in power are not religious themselves, (at least not as much as they claim) they just use it as a weapon to stay in power.

    While that may or may not be true. From a technique standpoint and film standpoint. I give Cenzo a much better matchup style wise vs Burroughs than Nolf. 
    One of the biggest being I can’t really remember that many times that Cenzo has been taken down by pure leg attacks. 
    Everything I have heard about Cenzo says that his major issue is motivation and burnout not the ability. The stories “I’ve heard” about Cenzo in the room..
    paint the same picture as stories everyone in college heard about Taylor and Ruth in practice.
    i actually think Burroughs is continuously underrated especially on the technical side. I was mainly commenting on styles

    Interesting trivia topic - IIRC and post college, only one American has defeated  JB in a match that was ultimately meaningful, e.g. Not part of series that was fruitless for his opponent.  Who is it?

    I downloaded the 2019 EADA data that has expenses by sport. Here is how it breaks down. Keep in mind, this is just how the data was sent to the government and different schools may report things slightly differently. I think I pulled all the non-D1 schools that compete in D1. The list has 72 schools and I assume is for the 2018-2019 school year: https://pastebin.com/3JD02QNY
    Total Expenses    
    Over 2 million    5
    1.5-2 million    11
    1-1.5 million    19
    500K-1 million    27
    Under 500K    10
    Mean is $1.06 million. Median is $981K.
