  1. Burroughs has said he plans on opening a wrestling and MMA gym in southern New Jersey. Can’t wait.
  2. O’toole Wick Kharchla Griffith Marinelli Berge Hamiti Wittlake Book it
  3. Has this dude popped for roids yet? Reading about the Russian skating team got me thinking back. I know he lost to Yazdanicharati in the finals but man that match cost Burroughs not just a chance at his second Olympic gold but also 500k. Horrible if he was juiced to the gills.
  4. Age means something but it's really about physical maturity. Levi is doing just fine in the physical development department.
  5. Well not sure about a bonus machine. He was losing the match with Gallagher 3-2 until the last 15 secs when he got a TD into a turk. And not sure of his age but dude looks plenty physically developed to hang. Gallagher is a horse himself and he was right there.
  6. Weight cutting sucks and often untenable. If it’s really over that I don’t blame him.
  7. Gotta give Reina credit for getting Penn right back on track. The program hasn’t been the same since he left. Zeke had a good start then split, Eiter meh, Tirapelle meh. Reina has done a lot in a short amount of time.
  8. Hadn’t seen Hamiti before. Has an interesting herky jerky style to him. I thought Marinelli wrestled terrific against him. Hand fought well, stayed in great position and finished strong. The flip cartwheel thing Hamiti did in desperation at the end was funny. But you can tell how dangerous he already is and as he physically matures he will be a big problem for everyone. Great match.
  9. I’ve seen that technique quite a bit and teach it and have never seen any injuries from it. Were there problems with it? Still legal at the HS level.
  10. I get that Meredith isn’t Lee, but Rivera seems to be firing on all cylinders. I watched Rivera quite a bit all the way through high school and he’s continually improved year in and year out. Hoping he can take it this year. RBY, Starocci and Brooks are near locks to repeat. Wow.
  11. That's not what the quote says. He said Omicron is not the same disease we were seeing a year ago which has nothing to do with the vaccines.
  12. Saw this quote today in NYTimes: "John Bell, a professor of medicine at Oxford University and an adviser to the British government, said that Omicron was “not the same disease we were seeing a year ago.”“The horrific scenes that we saw a year ago of intensive care units being full, lots of people dying prematurely, that is now history, in my view, and I think we should be reassured that that’s likely to continue,” he told the BBC on Tuesday." I'm going with Mr. Bell's opinion. Let em wrestle.
  13. Yep more competition sounds good but really just means more cost. Getting very old and very expensive very quickly.
  14. It actually is that simple. I am picky about who I trust, I'll go with the NYTimes and WSJ and their sources thanks. I think if an entire wave hits multiple countries and they aren't seeing nearly the same hospitalizations or deaths and the numbers are already declining as fast as they rose that is more than just preliminary results.
  15. No, it’s more mild. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/22/health/covid-omicron-delta-hospitalizations.html
  16. Did Dean try to challenge Brooks or did he just concede the spot or did he just wanna eat?
  17. I can’t figure out, at this point in a pandemic, why they can’t have tests for every guy wanting to compete. People in stands back 6 feet and masked. Competitors all tested and bring result to scale. Done. I know the gov is pumping out 500 million in free tests but use some of that ridiculous tuition money to buy tons of tests for each university.
  18. Nolf is always dangerous because he has great leg attacks. Those two low shots he hit were sweet. Good win for him. Respect for going.
  19. Seemed to have plenty of attacks in high school. Unless I'm misremembering.
  20. I watched Bartlett live vs Penn and he didn't do anything. Yes he ended up winning the match vs a quality opponent but he didn't take a single attack until late in the 3rd. Now he's probably learned not to vs these bigger dudes but man he seems to be wasting so much talent in a weight that isn't suited to him.
  21. You don’t think Sparks had it scouted after the first couple times he either got it or went for it? It’s hard to deal with and he’s damn good at it.
