  1. USA wrestling does nothing to market the sport. FLO is good for subscribers, but no one else.
  2. i'll be surprised if Burroughs wins as easily as some are predicting
  3. it's official. The two will wrestle at 79kg in the headlining bout of the event. I'm thinking the size difference will keep this one close, as well as Askren's ability to defend. Thinking a 2 point match Burroughs.
  4. is Richard Perry back? being ranked at 3 at 86 after his tragic injury is impressive if he's actually back to that level. Can't imagine he is. agree, McKenna#2 ahead of JO and Retherford is interesting but is it warranted. and as already stated seeing Varner still ranked at 125 is also intriguing.
  5. these do not provide the same protection, in fact, if you already have cauliflower ear, you can't even wear this.
  6. the straps are indeed difficult to adjust because of how difficult it is to move the hard leather through the small slats. x5, including the chin guard. It literally makes your fingers hurt and is very time consuming. I recall going to tournaments as a coach and a few wrestlers buying them and coming to me to adjust the straps. Painful! But as already stated, once it fits, it doesn't move or come apart, it fits.
  7. unfortunately i'm sure most fans would love to see this out of bounds rule extend to all levels. But these are all reasons why it's probably not possible. Most elementary school mats are TINY, no way they have that much room outside the circle. Makes it real difficult for this rule to be enacted at all levels. my $.02
  8. the longer the event waits, the less enthusiasm it will garner. It should be done 2 weeks after NCAA's are over, similar to the USA v PA folk match. Get it done timely. Imar/Lewis sounds great!
  9. very intriguing match up indeed. i think Askren still outskills and outfunks him. King of funk.
  10. Nickal should give Greco a go with his style of wrestling.
  11. it's real hard for me to take Nolf without really seeing him wrestle any top level int'l competition on top of seeing him almost lose (close call on the TD in NCAA's) to Hidlay. Is Hidlay a better FS wrestler than Nolf? and i'm also not completely sold on JO, he has never reached his post college potential and not sure he ever will. Didn't he just get tech'd in his last tournament final? my $.02.
  12. sounds like you can go back to wearing your shorts and t shirt with boxer shorts.
  13. Lee basically said he wasn't interested in wrestling his practice partner in this All Star match
  14. rumor has it T&T will stay in PA for the next few weeks recruiting only the best wrestlers.
  15. never thought i'd see a most exciting match thread with Sam Stoll mentioned. lol Lewis/Joseph was awesome. as well as Fix/Suriano
  16. singlets define wrestling to be honest and there's nothing like pulling up the straps of a singlet preparing for battle. only those that have done it can speak of it. however, right with that, wrestlers need to invest in a proper athletic supporter to wear under the singlet. some of these guys look plain silly. as for the 2 piece, too may of the young kids look like they're wearing basketball shorts. even at the HS level.
  17. I recall Princeton wearing them too for a bit. Anyone unhappy they're gone? i'm not
  18. what happened to the shirts and shorts talk? worst idea ever.
  19. had Rohn not gotten into a car accident and lost his index finger, good chance he would've made it back to the top of the podium. Little bit of adjustment there.
  20. Two hands pulling on the head is fun wrestling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. JB would own him in freestyle. Conflicting styles. My $.02 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Regardless, not sure if it’s Brands or the Iowa mystique that keeps the PA greats pipeline open? Lot of great schools close to Pennsylvania so what’s the drawing them to Iowa, Tom Brands? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. not sure how he will pan out in college, but 3x PIAA champ Ryan Anderson is heading there, 145 lber in HS with a little excess around the midsection.
  24. i too thought i was signing up for a month and ended up getting charged $159, but I'm glad i got the subscription. i saw a LOT of PIAA's and B10's. I hooked up an HDMI cable from my computer to my big screen TV, but the amount of time i spent reloading mats was outstanding! that's my biggest gripe, that and the non stop small spinning circles in the middle of every mat that just did not go away after 3-4 days of watching. looking forward to watching my first Dapper Dan classic on Friday as well.
