  1. tbh i didn't watch the whole thing. i guess my point is - some people can be very sharp (which both martin and joe are) and still produce some takes that you think are crazy/stupid. that's all i meant. martin's success certainly cannot be chalked up simply to 'luck' as someone suggested above. 

  2. lol. yes, it is dramatic. but so is making the leap from a covid disagreement to: 'he's an idiot who keeps getting lucky'. especially when you never met the guy.

    btw - the other guy in the vid is Joe Velliquette. 3xer in Missouri (iirc he beat Ke-Shawn in the finals for one of those). UPenn engineering grad. model american. 

  3. nhs - no objection from me other than to say there would be much less need for speculation (and mineos often 'wrongness') if coaches were forthright. 

    Lurker - they cannot.

    A staff member of mine tweeted info from an official SID press release yesterday and a DI coach took issue with it b/c it came out before he could tell his team.

    Anyone else find this ~40% pathetic, ~50% hilarious, ~60% ironic, and ~10% sad?


    tbh i find some truth in it. a decent amount, actually. 

    the fact of the matter is that college coaches and organizations in power in this sport hold it back - including but not limited to - the coverage of it. 

  5. yes. for longer than i wanted to, honestly. the gist is - he flipped out for not checking in on him often enough when we burnt our eyes. said i'm a bad friend. on twitter he has pivoted to being upset that it took too long for me to reimburse his expenses. it's hogwash. and i'm not getting into it with him on twitter. just thankful it's over.

  6. this subject has been beaten to death. if, by now, you don't know the plan, the camps of coaches and their agendas, and the horrible ramifications the plan would have had if it went through, i'm not gonna change your mind now. you either don't know the whole story or can't extrapolate what that format would have done and what it would have looked like.

    thank god it died. 

    as for the 'many coaches' who disagreed with me, i could care less. if we could trust them to make the best decisions we wouldn't have the half-ass system we have now. 

    and why in the world - if national duals did exist - would the first semester look any different than it does now? you think psu wrestles facundo vs. sacred heart? you think iowa would have wrestled spencer vs isu? you think cohlton schultz wrestles kerkvliet with the match already locked?

    the only possible change to the first semester it would have caused is teams scheduling less competitive duals early on.

  7. 'the plan'

    was a total disaster. nonsensical. 

    fans might have been happy, but it was a joke of a system (quite literally a shell game designed for no other reason than (the hope) for more money)

    it would have been terrible for coaches and athletes.
