  1. Good for Jaydin to make the adult decision to better himself to go for his goals. I can't imagine how tough it was for him to tell Mike, BSmith, his family, friends, etc. that he was going to leave his beloved Mizzou (he was definitely extremely loyal) and the life he's always known in Columbia. Good for him. My only concern now is that this has shed a light on the fact that Mizzou's RTC is not strong, and hopefully doesn't deter other top recruits (O'Toole, etc.) to choose schools that have that RTC funding and athletes. I know they have Dom Bradley there now, and had Alan Waters...it sucks they didn't have the funding to keep J'Den and Jaydin and pull in other athletes. I also hope this doesn't put thoughts into Mauller and Jacques' heads that they need to follow their former HS teammate.
  2. Is Elam redshirting? Interesting that Myers is starting. I hoped they would redshirt Mauller and Jacques as well to give them another year with O'Toole coming in...
  3. Agreed. I wonder if Alan Waters plans to continue competing; I know he has aspirations to continue coaching. I doubt J'Den will stop competing any time soon.
  4. I wonder if they would get anybody that is still training as their top assistant, only because they 1) may not be able to dedicate enough time and 2) the Missouri Wrestling Club isn't really star studded outside of Alan Waters and J'Den Cox, so training partners might be scarce. Logan would be an unbelievable get, as would any of the others that you mentioned. How likely are we to get him? I don't really see any of those names having interest in Mizzou, but I could be totally wrong. While Mizzou is always top 6-10, it doesn't seem that most recognize that.
  5. With Sammie Henson just down the road in STL, does he come back to Mizzou to fill the void left by Alex Clemsen? I don't think Sammie is cut out to be a head coach, but when he was previously the assistant under Brian Smith, the team was in national title contention. Thoughts?
  6. The problem is that if 20k people buy all session passes now, you might have 30k buy tickets to the finals, but you'll only have 5-10k buy tickets to the first round or wrestleback rounds. Unless you're a family member or friend of a wrestler, or a die hard, most people don't care to watch the first or second rounds, consi's, etc...at least in my opinion. I have friends that are not wrestling fans, but will watch the semi's or finals because it's like a main event and it's the best of the best. I have a feeling that a lot of session 1 and 2 tickets would go unsold if they didn't sell them all together. With that said, I usually can't get off work to go to the earlier sessions, so I usually can only attend the finals and would love it if they split them up.
  7. Worst call I’ve ever seen. These ref’s need to be held accountable for this BS...
  8. Do they offer multiple subscription plans? Why does it say "plans starting at $12.50/month"? Anyway, I agree that it states it right there before you put your CC info in. While I think it's BS that they wouldn't refund you entirely (and therefore lost you as ever being a customer again), I'm not sure they can confirm if you actually watched any programming. How do they know if you weren't trying to scam them and watch content for free? Just playing devil's advocate. At the end of the day, they're a business and choose to run their business as they see fit. I personally would have refunded you the entire amount and hoped to gain you as a customer if I ever offered a monthly subscription service again (it's clear you weren't going to pay for a whole year). But they chose not to. At least you got the majority of your money back. With that said, I just signed up for a subscription for the first time about 2 weeks ago and love the content. I've watched about 5 of the films so far and they're great.
  9. That's a nice way to put it with the stall calls. Were those refs local guys? Took them forever to call stalling in Moore, but they sure were quick against Lewis and Koelling. Heck, that last one against Koelling was called as he was circling away (not backing up). Ridiculous. Question...which team wins the dual if OSU wbf at Hwt? I think the first criteria is matches won, so 6-4 in favor of Missouri?
  10. Well ffs...what was the final score? Some of us don't subscribe to the POS known as Flo.
  11. IMO, the only reason Askren is even in the conversation is because he was the so-called "founder" of Funk/extreme scrambling, if you will. He brought a different type of wrestling that wasn't popular until his time and that others weren't able to hang with because they didn't practice it a lot. I think if Askren was entering college as a freshman today, he wouldn't be in this conversation, because so many wrestlers today work on scrambling a lot more...really because of him. As opposed to John Smith, who's low single would be unstoppable no matter who he goes against. If you look at just college seasons, Cael is obviously the GOAT. If you look at accomplishments during the wrestlers college years, Snyder (Oly Champ) is the obvious GOAT.
  12. I looked here for the team list. It says Ohio State may not send full team, so would agree that we probably won't see them. We can hope, though. http://www.gomocs.com/news/2017/10/16/field-announced-for-the-2018-southern-scuffle-presented-by-compound-clothing.aspx?path=wr
  13. The entry list indicates that some teams are only sending "partial" teams, so those are indicated by a *. Couple of observations: - Will NaTo be back? - Looking forward to seeing Hidlay compete, if he's there. - Joseph against Marsteller, anyone? - 184, 197 and Hwt. will be great if everyone shows. 125: 1.

  14. He'll have Yianni at the South Beach Duals, which will be no small feat. If he runs the table in Reno and wins against Yianni, I agree that he absolutely deserves the 2 seed (unless of course, he beats Heil, but that's even more wishful thinking).
  15. I hope so, and I hope they send their starters. Will be a good mid-season test for Lavallee (#6 Shields) and will help to see how close Lewis is to Zahid.
  16. What's interesting to me is the highly ranked Non-D1 guys filling up each weight class. Don't know anything about guys like 157 Weber (#1 in NAIA), 165 McLean (#1 in D2), etc., but will be interested to see how they compete against the big boys from D1.
  17. Here are the (Intermat) ranked wrestlers for the College Division. I did not include RS's.

  18. I would actually classify Missouri's recruiting class above NC State. They both have five Top 100's, but MO's recruits seem to be ranked a little higher.
  19. He had them last year and all summer...and still got stuck by Illinois' backup. I want to be optimistic about him improving but I just can't with this performance so far. Maybe it was all of the over-hyping by MacTruck that caused me to expect a lot more, but I'm not seeing it.
  20. Great dual. 125: I don’t think we’re ever getting the McGhee back that was ranked top 10 two years ago. If he would just pull the trigger and get aggressive.... 133: Erneste looked great...I hope he keeps the fire and I think he’ll continue to improve as the season goes on. I think he has an outside shot to AA and definitely go R12. 141: Eirmann is so much fun to watch. He’s got a great shot to be high on the podium in March. 149: I was super impressed my Leeth. That escape to quick TD was impressive. He didn’t seem to aggressive other than that, but nice debut for the Tigers for him. Is the neck anything to worry about, or is the brace just a precaution? 157: Joey LaVallee - 2x NCAA Finalist 165: I hoped Flynn could keep it closer, but man....IMar is just on another level. 184: Marriott looked good....great things to come from him. 197: Miklus didn’t look so impressive in his return, but I’m sure there are cobwebs to work out. He’ll be fine and I hope working with J’Den every day gives him the fire he’ll need to compete for a gold in March. 285: .....no words, really.
  21. This is kind of early, but I just booked a trip with some friends to Vegas the weekend of the NCAA tournament. I've always enjoyed taking advantage of the bad odds making for the tournament on Bovada/BoDog, but I didn't see that they had lines last year. Has anyone been to Vegas during the tournament and placed bets on it? Any suggestions for casinos to go to for it? Thanks in advance.
  22. So then how can Mizzou win this? 125: McGhee dec. JRod. MIZ: 3-0 133: NATO dec. Eirman. Tied: 3-3 141: Pletcher dec. Synon. tOSU: 6-3 149: Mayes dec. Jordan. Tied: 6-6 157: LaVallee dec. Ryan. MIZ: 9-6 165: Lewis PIN Burcher. MIZ: 15-6 174: BoJo MDec. Wiesman. MIZ: 15-10 184: Martin TFall Lemanowicz. Tied: 15-15 197: Cox dec. Moore. MIZ: 18-15 Hwt: Snyder Mdec. Myers. tOSU: 19-18 Swings are 141 and bonus at 165, 174, 184, 197 and Hwt.
