  1. Who says the finals are boring!
  2. In other news, Tony the Tiger likes Frosted Flakes.
  3. Cael was right to "catch and release" on this kid. Even if he isn't a "catch and release kind of guy".
  4. I'm curious as to how you could do both. Indoor track is the same as wrestling season. Outdoor track is a spring sport, as is baseball. I suspect that he did track early in HS and finished with baseball, which he probably liked more. I'm not putting him down. I'm a huge fan of his.
  5. I'm not a political partisan either, but I live in Australia, where banning assault rifles has had a huge. We don't have a problem with mass shootings.
  6. Track and baseball were the same season in NYS last I knew.
  7. Marinelli looks like sloth from "The Goonies."
  8. I'm an East Coast guy (NY without a real college team) and over the last few years I've not been a Gilman fan for his antics. That said, he had a dream destroyed at the NCAAS and he had the heart and guts to wrestle back for 3rd. I'm a Gilman fan now (as long as he saves his hardass stuff for the mat instead of talk). He has hardly been scouted. He has some of the best lightweight coaches in the USA. I wish well for him. I never thought that I would say that. Go get em, Gilman!
  9. Russia has 3 in the finals. 2 won't place. USA has 2 in the finals and Whitlake is going for bronze.
  10. Iranian in Bravo-Young's side of the bracket gets cute and loses to Armenia.
  11. Great interview. Impressive showing by the USA today. The folk/ free difference showed itself in a few letdowns today from momentary lapses. Carr giving up the 4. I watched it live because I'm in a friendly time zone. I thought that the scoreboard was wrong, but it showed Carr winning on criteria. He could have won gold. Warner was also impressive, losing on criteria to the gold medalist. These kids are very good. It would be nice to see one of our "unknowns" put on a medal-winning performance today assuming Yianni and Steveson get medals.
  12. Unreal how Cox is on the shot clock and warned for passivity in the last match. What planet are these refs on?
  13. Frank got two takedowns. The Turk got 2 pushouts. Match ends 6-4. Rubbish.
  14. I still don't understand why he was put on the clock. Gor didn't take a shot for the duration of the match.
  15. I don't disagree with you, but there's a lot to be excited about in USA wrestling at the moment. All of those stories that you mentioned are noteworthy. Snyder was probably the story of the year. Pico just adds something different to the mix.
  16. My guess is that he could represent Mexico. I don't see why he wouldn't. It would be a shame to see him leave freestyle for MMA, but he needs to make a living. As much as I love collegiate wrestling, I'm not sure that a college education has the same currency anymore. I don't understand the hate for this kid. He's set huge goals for himself and he has huge talent and heart. Incidentally, I liked Molinaro's post-match interview, except the hair.
