  1. I haven't been watching, just tracking scores, it seems like he is getting turned everytime....is it always cradles or some other turn that he has trouble staying out of?
  2. Its a bit of a sidebar, but how does it work internationally? Do they even bother with a team champion? From the arguments being made there are really two different things being measured, so why not have them acknowledged by officially (NCAA, etc) crowning two team champions, the dual meet champion and the tournament champion? If a team is truly dominant one year they will win both.
  3. ...if Yates wins and then one of the next 3 Michigan wrestlers manages to not get pinned looks like its going to happen that way and here we go, Coon v Nelson for the match

  6. This could come down to Coon v Nelson
  7. I'm guessing lots of people were wondering and just hadn't gotten to posting. Assigning a % is a fun exercise......I will go out on a limb and say 40% chance. That means if this initial meeting between Taylor Walsh and Derek St. John could happen 10 different times, then Taylor would pin DSJ 4 times out of those 10. The chance of DSJ being pinned drops significantly in a rematch.
  8. Making the call, you heard it here first!
  9. What is he pinning people with?
  10. These new rules are great for Brent, if he makes it past Russell it will be very interesting how he does against the international competition.
  11. Along the same lines: "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
  12. "You've got to give McDonough alot of credit..... Within 2 years he was a NCAA champ which is a huge improvement from where he was as a senior in high school as evidenced by this video" = totally agree with this, McD really improved with some great coaching from the Brands Its Oliver in the video, and he was a top star in PA.......but in general I think that PA HS wrestlers are better prepared for college wrestling than kids from other states, the techniques that PA kids learn in HS or before are pretty advanced. "It's pretty telling that McDonough probably isn't a national champ if he doesn't wrestle 125." I think McD did great with the talent he had and credit him with being in great shape and determined. I've never been a fan of his style and I think by cutting so much weight he really gained an advantage over most of his opponents. In my opinion by cutting so much weight for so long he ended up trading a "4x AA and 1x champ" career for a "3x AA and 2x champ" career.
  13. I'm from Michigan and I'm a CMU fan. Bennett has always been a hammer on top and has good defense, but historically got beat by wrestlers who are really good on their feet (Ruth, Wright, that guy from Maryland who Ruth always beat up on). His win over Hamlin, who is also really good on his feet, was surprising to me and is definitely a step in the right direction for him......winning on a riding time point and escape probably isn't going to happen against Ruth.
