    I wonder what other people's experiences are asking questions to FRL. 

    CP is always complaining about non-Americans working out in the US.

    Sounds xenophobic at times, but that's his stick.

    I have asked this simple question to FRL at least 5 times (if I am using twitter correctly) and it has never been addressed.

    The simple question is this:

    "If a U.S. wrestler goes overseas to train [which many have done], HOW LONG is acceptable according to CP?"

    This is a serious question.  If people do not want non-U.S. wrestlers to train here, what about our wrestlers who train overseas?  Never? One month? Six months? One year? Two years? A decade?

    Frankly, I could care less if non-Americans work out here and our guys learn from Russians.  Actually, I think our guys should spend more time overseas as Dave Schultz would do.

    Our wrestlers could learn new techniques, understand the culture, try new food, and maybe acquire a new language. 

    But really, how long is it acceptable for our guys to train overseas?

    50 years is too long, otherwise whatever you feel is helpful.  ;_;

    Dake should be favored to win that match, but he shouldn't have the right to totally manipulate the time of the match. What's to stop him from bringing lawyers and dr.'s notes to USA Wrestling and getting the date moved yet again? 

    Word is Dake already has a doctor's note to delay the 2nd period of the first match 24 hours just in case the 1st period score is not in his favor. ;) ;_;

    To me, the answer depends on what weight Valencia goes.  If he goes 184, Hall should not redshirt and stay at 174.

    If Zahid goes 174 Mark should absolutely redshirt.  Maybe give Manville a shot at 174.

    Heard Hall likes a good cinnabon & will thus be going 197 next year.  ;)

    No it doesn't.

    Smith Won worlds after his junior year, that was after his college season. 

    No redshirt has ever made the olympic team. I was surprised.

    Well ok, but Smith did win the US Open that year, had success in freestyle including beating the Russian in the Goodwill games, correct?  So while he didn't make the Olympic team same year as redshirt think we'd have to say the redshirt certainly helped him in freestyle and winning World and Olympic golds the next two years.  Don't recall why he didn't make World team that year, chose not to participate or something else?
