  1. I don't recall who and I wouldn't be able to find the post at this point, but I did read a couple back and forths from when Lee was in high school which indicated he was taking it to Dennis when they were preparing for the Olympic Games.     But then Lee got injured and we all know the difficulties he's had since then.   This is folkstyle so of course it's different, but if Lee can get back to that form from high school, I really like his chances.    My question though, will he be able to get back to that level, or is the knee and shoulder too much too soon for us to have those types of expectations?       I have a buddy who is very close to the program and who was sky high on Lee, but I haven't heard from him since Midlands (I've reached out twice).        If he'll return my messages, I'll post here whatever inside info he provides.        

     

    Dennis said it himself and he was talking about Gilman Not Lee.   Flo has the video somewhere.  


  2. Cutch looks broken.  He wrestled injured a couple times this year and I don't think he is going to be part of the discussion.   I have also never heard of a wrestle off between Cassar and Rasheed.   If they have not, Rasheed deserves one, after Rasheed's pin in the semi's Cael gave himself a palm to the head.  Perhaps a V8 moment.     Cassar lost to the Holschlag in the semi's Rasheed pinned Holschlag in 46 seconds.  Rasheed pinned Boykin in the quarters in 40+ seconds and Cassar beat him in OT.      Cassar is one of the best in the country on his feet.  but doesn't seem to have any mat wrestling.  Rasheed seems to have both.     Huge statement from Shakur.    He would be the starter if I had a vote.   


  3. Bo Nickal thought he would pin Gabe Dean.

     

     

    What Happened to this Tweet by Flo? It's no longer available. I'm curious to see what Bo thought. Is there video of him saying he thought he would pin Gabe Dean? To my knowledge they had only wrestled once before and I'm pretty sure it was following Bo's redshirt in a Freestyle match and Dean won a close match.

     


  4. The true potential argument should be irrelevant. It's more subjective UWW BS. How about a timeframe to improve? 10 or 15 seconds perhaps. Some guys are given time to work and others are whistled back to their feet immediately. Zain is pretty damn close even at this level, with better time management he's in the mix. I think he can beat anybody that was in this tournament, Ramonov and Bekbulatov perhaps a different story.


  5. Of course you do.... and I have been around long enough to know those special talents, before they have done much internationally, pan out less than more. I also remember that people thought a bronze medalist in the Olympic games, with an amazing pedigree, could be taken in the past NCAA's because he didn't win pretty enough during the season. So calling somebody a special talent, with only a bit of a domestic senior level pedigree, is a bit of a hard sell for me. I could give you a list of these special talents over the past 20 years or so if you'd like.

     

     

    Oh, please do.


  6. Bunch of slackers who just wander into the World Championships hoping beyond hope they don't run into somebody has the power, the will, tenacity, and endurance to make it happen.

     

    I have agreed with Hammerlock less than one time in 10 years on this board, until now. I think Zain is a special talent and I think he has as good a shot as anyone at winning this tournament. Especially with Bekbulatov not representing Russia.


  7. BIG and LI Marty?? hall of famers? Wow. Big was an anti American troll named Eugene somethingChenko and Marty was just a troll. The Mods finally permanently banned Big and Marty left to pursue a media gig that shocked everyone. JTTS was funny, JT1 did his research but got spun up easily and probably had to breathe into a paper bag alot. Nobody really sticks out as a Forum Superstar.


  8. For the record I said you were expecting him to relapse.

     

    I am thinking he will drop a tight match in the blood rounds at the 2018 NCAAs and by the fall of 2018 after a 6 month bender of bath salts, Oxy, or heroin he will do something amazing.... AGAIN.

    Yer stupid. Funny, but stupid.
