    Missouri - '18/'19

    The size of Tolton isn't all that relevant. Tolton historically has just been an extension of Eierman wrestlers that live in the Columbia area. It isn't as if the school is organically producing any talent. Also, Jacques won state titles at Kirksville and Owensville before ever coming to Tolton.

    Turk Lords is my personal favorite.

    South Beach Duals - opportunity

    MU couldn't fill Jesse Audiorium for the Cornell dual a few years ago. It is hard to argue an event has national appeal when you can't even sell it in your own back yard.

    Fresno vs. Stanford

    Just watched the Fresno vs. Stanford dual on the USS Midway on CBS Sports. While they skipped a few matches, the production was good and lots of action on the mat. I thought Adam Tirapelle was very professional on the broadcast.

    Change at WVU- No Bull

    That is Wyatt Henson. Jackson had committed to wrestle at WVU this year.

    Where is Jackson Henson going this year?

    Zaddick out at Iowa State

    I don't get all the comments about drama at ISU. No matter what the sport, any time a new coaching staff takes over, there is roster turnover. This doesn't mean the environment is "toxic".

    Flo Announcers

    Loved watching track and field, and cornhole, without any plan to do so, live on TV today. Too bad USA wrestling convinced fans Flo is the best wrestling can do.

    When Netflix starts broadcasting live sports then that might be relevant. I am atleast able to find out how many subscribers there are to Netflix. How many paid subscribers are there to Flowrestling? Instead Flo sports has positioned itself against companies like ESPN, yet when asked to provide viewership numbers like other sports broadcast companies provide, won't do it. One would think both Flo and USA wrestling would be publishing these numbers to show how the partnership is paying off. Why the lack of transparency?

    Flo Announcers

    I'm specifically addressing the relationship between USA Wrestling and Flo. Listing out every coach, organization, or entity who helps to grow wrestling isn't really relevant to that point.

    In this case USA wrestling has the responsibility for promoting and growing the sport. People like myself, question the decision to hide USA wrestling's premier product behind a subscription-based streaming service. This seems counter to the idea of growing the sport beyond the current boundaries.

    Bacone Drops Wrestling

    That is actually the negative.

    The burden of proof is on those making the affirmative claim, which in this case is your camp. Show some data to support your claims that wrestling fans are leaving the sport at a slower rate, continuing to follow the sport, etc.

    I agree that more content is available. However, you don't have any data to support any of your claims such as that more fans are continuing to follow the sport and wrestling fans are leaving the sport at a slower rate. The NBA doesn't promote basketball? The NBA is constantly promoting their product both domestically and internationally.
