  1. Just curious if they are testing all athletes and coaches and how often. Do they have quarantine procedures in place?
  2. What's going on with Flo and the girls not accepting to wrestle on this card? Lots of arguments going on via Twitter today and it's tough to get the actual story. Flo should chime in and tell the truth. Some girls saying they weren't offered the same amount as the boys, and Pat Downey is going off on them not wrestling on Flo's platform.
  3. Didn't Adeline Grey just move out there as well? This is horrible. I live nearby and I am heartbroken, especially since they have so much potential this upcoming season. Where do all the guys go? Where does Abas go?
  4. Lol at all of you. I suck. Anyway, will the teams be able to have non-conference duals? Will they be allowed to fly during the regular season? Will fans be able to attend duals/tournaments?
  5. Edited my post. Sorry about that. I meant to say that D2 in CA canceled fall sports but I was even wrong about that. I guess it was a single conference.
  6. D2 already canceled all fall sports (Sorry, I thought that D2 colleges in CA canceled fall sports and even worded that wrong. I guess it was only 1 conference that did), and in California, all California State University classes will be online for the fall. At the high school level in CA, the CIF is looking at a shortened football season in the fall where they start in late September or early October (all preliminary). I teach and coach in CA and our district is not allowing any sort of contact, practices, or even hiring of new coaches right now for any sport. I'm nervous that CA, and other states, might push this back even further. I hope not. On Twitter, Willie Saylor mentioned something about how his sources say we will have a college wrestling season next year. What does it look like for all of you across the country?
  7. After Khabib's dad got Covid and went into a coma there was a lot of news about what the Corona Virus has done to Dagestan. I don't have any official sources so I'm reaching out here, but on Reddit, a lot of the locals in Dagestan were posting that at least 90% of the people in that area had the virus and the government was covering it all up. Anybody have any facts on this? Dagestan is a major hotbed of wrestling so I'd imagine this is affecting the wrestling world there a lot. Thanks for any facts!
  8. Didn't Kary Kolat or someone win a semifinal match at the world championships, go to their hotel to rest before the finals, and then come back to find out their match didn't count because a protest or challenge? I'm honestly very vague on this one and can't remember if they had to re-wrestle or if they just told him he lost the match.
  9. I'd start on defining mental toughness. What is it? How can you measure it? How can you replicate it? Once you start going down that road you realize that the phrase, "mental toughness," is an overused and cliche term that very few people can define or measure. A lot of coaches and leaders will use terms like grit, perseverance, resilience, etc., to define mental toughness, so what we should do is to teach those specific skills, which can be measurable. In the wrestling world, we get it, but can we specifically define what it is? HOw would we explain it to encompass all sports and all life situations?
  10. If our wrestlers get an extra year of eligibility, is there anybody on track to be a 5x Big Ten Champion? Is it seniors only who would get an extra year? Or all qualifiers for the tournament?
  11. Originally, I read the results from a non-Flo source, but I thought the publicity of the dual was pretty cool this morning. Flo showed a video of people storming the mat after the win. It looked like the gym was packed for the dual. Regardless of anything, if a Big 10 team has won 60 straight dual meets then loses to a Pac 12 team, that is HUGE news.
  12. Not sure if this is true at all, but I heard rumors that Jayden was not the best "team" guy in the room and got a lot of special treatment to support that. Maybe the coaches are looking at the overall, longterm, big picture here about culture. I also don't have a problem with Jayden looking after himself and wanting to put himself in the best opportunity to maximize his full potential. Just like Snyder, J'den, and others. There's a small window to compete.
  13. Nickal wrestles in the U23 world championships next month, so that will be a great measurement for us all to see where he is.
  14. I haven't seen his name in the 74kg or 86kg. He is probably top 3 in the world at 79kg but might be in a tough situation size wise.
  15. THank you. I'm not a math guy, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to watch prelims on the west coast starting at 9 pm - 2 am? Not too bad.
  16. For some reason this was a nice refresher to enjoy the fact that we still have JB competing for our team. We are in a great era for USA wrestling and he's a major part of that.
  17. You are either trolling us or you have been living under a rock. Dake won the world championships last year. Don't forget that internationally Dake has wins over Tsargush, Hasanov, and a bunch of others.
  18. Wick's career is over. He tweeted that he had surgery and can't wrestle anymore. Unless it was his brother.
  19. His ability to coach the mental side of sport is probably his biggest, unique advantage. The stuff he says in interviews/social media is extremely advanced in the world of sporty psychology. He gets it. Plus, he's pretty good at wrestling. And he knows the commitment a coach must have in his/her athletes and program. Once he decides to become a head coach I imagine he's going to be all in with every single athlete he has. I would love to wrestle for a coach like that.
  20. How many Hodge Trophy winners has Cox beaten? 3? Dake Taylor Nickal And he's a 3x world medalist including champ. Oh, and a 3x NCAA champ. Cox is absolutely incredible and I'm so happy he's on our team.
  21. Max Dean tweeted the other day he was going live with Dake and Dake was tossing him around, which makes me think that Dake is already recovering and doing well. He's probably just not in top form yet, and I don't blame him for wanting to make sure he's 100% healthy before wrestling Ringer.
  22. Does anybody know why David Taylor waited until after the WTTs to announce he won't be able to wrestle in Final X? Did something change within that short window?
