    The first time I ever scored in practice against my HS coach I stuck my tongue out to a teammate on the sideline and my coach bucked on bottom at that exact moment.  I bit off a LARGE piece of tongue and when it grew back it has never fit quite right ever since.  I bite it all the time to this day.  I never stuck my tongue out in a match again.

    I can speak from experience on this topic.  I started wrestling in highschool and lost almost all of my matches my first year. My second year I came back and.... lost maybe only half of my matches.
     
    Yeah it turns out wrestling is really hard and its not that easy to be a state champ.  Go figure

    How could you not go with Rasheed at this point?  He blitzed the field at the scuffle and pinned guys that Cassar split razor close matches with.  You literally couldn't ask for a better performance from a wrestler.  If pinning your way through one of the toughest tournaments of the year and outplacing your teammate isn't enough to get you the spot than what is?
     
    I think Rasheed is your guy until he loses.  And then MAYBE you give Cassar a chance in the lineup

    All of that is true, but you're ignoring the giant elephant in the room.    I get it, it's going to be a tough pill to swallow and avoiding it may be the easiest way to cope.   I have no dog in the fight here, in fact i picked Lee to lose (albeit a round later).    I'm not especially a fan of Iowa, so their outlook isn't anything I'm emotionally vested in.  As I stated above, I believe them being good (I should have said elite, of course they're good) is important for the overall health of the sport.    Don't sleep on Iowa State or Northern Iowa for that matter.   
     
    This is their once in a generation athlete and he's already taken a loss just a couple competitions into his career.   Justify it however you need to, the reality is this is a major let down, so much in fact, Lee dropped out of the competition rather than face anyone else who may have also defeated him.     Again, it makes no difference to me, but this is what many are thinking.  I'm not afraid to say it.   
     
    Brands can't get a 3 time world champ who trains with the world silver at lightweight U, and he can't reach the final of the Midlands because a non AA knocked him off and held him to 1 point?     The Iowa fans i know haven't as much as commented on social media or sent me a text to discuss the tournament since the semis decision went official.    Shoot  now that I think of it, maybe I should send help to verify they're all ok.

    Sorry, wasn't meaning to come off like I was beating you down.  I legitimately thought you were more referring to guys winning it as an undefeated TF. 
     
    A bunch of guys didn't lose a match as a TF, but many wrestled limited matches and most didn't run into the top guys at their weight.  Plus, you would often see alot of FFing at the early opens.  NaTo actually went something like 17-0 as a TF and looked pretty darn good.  As a result, I wasn't surprised when he hit the ground running the next season.  Still, I didn't pick him to win it all that year.

    Abdullah you must temper your expectations for  Lee.   He is no longer wrestling 110 pounders.  This is the NCAA's where even Snyder and Burroughs took their lumps.    I have Lee top 10 right now.    Tough weight class.  Cleveland should be fun.

    1. Lee loses and gets a bunch of "he'll still be great."
    2. Bresser wins then loses and gets a bunch of "I didn't know Bresser was this good!"
    3. Suriano wins and gets a bunch of "he's not good anymore."
     
    Suriano has one large fan base who now hates him and a small and super obnoxious fan base that supports him and make everyone else hate him.  If he keeps winning close matches he may rival Dean Heil for most hated NCAA wrestler by the end of the year.

    Maybe, but I don't think fear of college guys suddenly crept in about 10 years ago when it had never been a deterrent prior to that, when the tournament was a true beast even relative to NCAAs.
     
    Some factors I would point to:
     
    1. More post-grads who might've otherwise competed in wrestling going MMA.
    2. Reduction of weight classes hurt participation.
    3. More RTCs and clubs now provide year-round training and competition for guys who do decide to pursue freestyle, so the need to get matches in at Midlands to stay sharp goes away.
    4. The rule changes throughout the years made freestyle so different from folk that people focused on freestyle may have decided competing in a folkstyle tournament is a bridge too far

    Yianni by infinite decision. After he quickly pins Eierman (~45 seconds) the blare of celestial trumpets will sound. All will go dark, then a beam of light will appear. In the beam will appear Dan Gable, clad only in a black/gold Hawkeye mankini with large black dragon wings in the back as he flaps 15' above the mat, and he'll say "behold, the next great one".

    LoStNuMbEr reacted to ThatLogSchuteWasCarrying in Midlands just got a lot more interesting..Pat Downey in   
    What makes him "deserve" a title more than anybody else?  I'm not particularly rooting against him and I think he can avoid trouble for the 2 months left of his college career, I expect him to AA and maybe even make the finals.  But "deserve"?  He's been given chance after chance after chance based solely on his talent and he's failed to hold up his end of the bargain every time.  At this point he's at his fourth school and competing against guys that were in grade school when he graduated high school.  He deserves the chance at the opportunity to wrestle this last season, and he's getting it.  But that's all.

    Cartwheels are now considered an act of magic?      Lets not forget the Russian wrestling team had to prove they were clean in order to get in to the Games.
     
     
    Snyder goes from bronze at junior worlds and  getting stuck by a college kid at NCAA's to go along with his 3 other losses  that season to world freestyle senior level champ a few months later, after defeating Olympic champion Varner.     
     
    Burroughs goes from, is he our greatest wrestler ever?   To teched out of repechage at the games.   
     
    I think we all accept those guys are are either clean or at least we don't accuse them.    Bolt performs like Burroughs did at the Olympics and now he's a juicer because in addition to his performance, he can also do magical cart wheels.     Talk about unreasonable fans.

    while i do have my own negative feelings in regards to FLO, I cannot agree with this statement.  They've done nothing but grow the sport and given fans unrivaled access to events, videos & results.
     
    the problem is the fact that they are unrivaled.  at this point because they don't have any major competitors, they can do whatever they want as it relates to pricing & subscription model.
