  1. The qualifying process is by far the best it’s ever been. These rules in particular are put in place to protect the interests of our best team, by protecting returning medalists. People that don’t like them are personally annoyed because they just don’t like PD3. Dake vitriol is just collateral damage. It reminds me of the Trump electoral college debate. We should eliminate the safest most reliable representative process in the world because an ass won. There are very few that can honestly say they’d rather have Deiringer than Dake until he proves himself by beating him. If you’re one of those people, kudos to your loyalties toward Alex. You’re not objective. But, since PD3 is controversial as a person we have to change everything so Alex can move up or Bo down. It’s hypocritical immature nonsense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Downey Making Weight...

    1-Because the field didn't weigh in at the event, then get hurt 2-It is and was stupid 3-Thanks for the opinion
  3. Pretty simple if you do the math what he hurt. I knew it weeks before so I'd bet Ringer had a pretty good idea. Dake had to go through official channels and follow the procedures of the postponement. Originally Taylor was going to ask for a delay but his was apparently worse than originally thought. Common sense and wrestling intelligence suggests that Fargo will be the place. A lot of red asses on here seem to be calling out the toughness and professionalism of 2 of our country's proven "world's best". Again, people hate winning.
  4. Well you know, if there is one thing Dake is known for it is ducking and delaying any real competition. People suck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Downey Making Weight...

    Because: 1. It isn't a dual meet where a forfeit benefits on side of the competition 2. It is stupid 3. Potentially a detriment to the athlete that is representing the US, which is the goal of the competition: determine the rep. Since that has been done, see #2
  6. This thread is littered with people who hate winning.
  7. Stutzman has been there long enough now where we should be seeing results. Even at Bloomsburg he did a great job making noise but didn't punch guys through. I agree that he seems to be a good coach but he needs to start getting it done. I've heard him making comments about "Beichner running a D3 program, blah blah" which very well may be true in his eyes as to what the commitment level is. Naive and ignorant a line of commentary it may be, if you're going to preach high standards then you have to deliver on Friday night, not just Thursday morning.

    The thread Yianni deserves

    True, but he isn't a hammer on top. Folkstyle this applies as well. While big matches are won on the feet primarily in all styles, if he adds more consistency in the top position he will be ridiculous in freestyle.

    The thread Yianni deserves

    What is insane is that I saw a poster in the other thread that said he doesn't have the wrestling skill set for freestyle. They didn't question his size or experience but his actual wrestling acumen, which is by the way probably the highest in our country barring Dake. When you can score your own points, defend and counter, and be creative you pretty much have the spectrum covered. If the kid figures out how to score on top, forget it.

    Pittsburgh grades

    Agree on this list except St Louis trumps Pitt and Philly for me. I would give Cleveland an even grade with St Louis. I find it interesting that certain accommodations attract some and not others.

    Pittsburgh grades

    Pittsburgh started out rocky but eventually got it right. The arena itself was fine. Great place to watch an event, great in house food and options, and of course accommodating all types of fans. Negative: ability to see each mat score/time due to the spread of matches taking up so much space on the ring and view obstruction by the scoreboard. Totally annoyed me during multiple instances. I thought it would improve as the mats lessened but it actually got worse Friday PM, then got better Saturday AM when they posted them on the scoreboard. Session Timing: on the NCAA but was really short. If you stayed downtown whether hotel wise or drink/food wise it probably was good. Having to go through the Fort Pitt tunnel every session dominated a lot of the day. Spent too much time in transit due to lack of downtown hotel availability. Would agree that Downtown met all reasonable expectations. Atmosphere of the event wasn't electric as NCAA's goes, and the finals were boring overall. Sometimes the product dictates the crowd enthusiasm. Overall: B
