  1. I wanted Burroughs to win soooo bad... But noted. :) I'll do better If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  2. Hahah that's fair :) If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  3. This bothers me also. Sometimes it just feels like they're naming a historically tough country and hoping they have a solid rep that year... It feels like (recently) they've asked Mike Mal to sit down each day for 15minutes to review a few stats they put together for him, then try to form it into a coherent preview of an Olympic weight... I've seen a few of these lately.... I appreciate the effort but I wonder how hard it would be for them to just employ somebody who keeps up with international wrestling If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  4. Up a weight, with a wrestler who was close when Helen was in her prime and has continued to compete.... There's no way you honestly thought she was bringing back gold.... To get trounced 13-0 and then to get beat soundly on the backside was ugly but "Helen" isn't the whole women's team... And yeah nobody (I hope) expected current Helen to beat Adekuoroye If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  5. In their defense I don't think we sent anyone we expected to bring back gold.Fearnside, Golston, Molinari all wrestled the best tournament possible for their draws and I would argue would be hard pressed to replicate their results. Guilford got to wrestle some legit competition and wrestled well. I was impressed by the effort. Yes your assessment of butts kicked is factual but just some context. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  6. Also note the winner of the other pool defaulted out. ;) If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  7. Well she was always chasing medals, won that worlds easily, then reached the highest of heights at Rio, took one more victory lap to a world title up a weight in Paris, (and she always won, for a long stretch).... then concussion stuff, larger than life brand (for a woman wrestler especially), guest appearances, yadda yadda yadda... She took the Henry Cejudo path to being less competitive, while Adekuoroye (and the rest of the pack) stayed on that Clubber Lang diet. It's gotta be frustrating getting rag-dolled like that but you'd think she'd know what's up... The match was close when Helen was in prime form.... Eh well maybe this tournament will spark her to do something great come the Olympics, or maybe she will be shocked at how far behind she is and an Injury will pop up.... We will see If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  8. Yeah, Helen was inviting those early "headbutts" cause she's standing forehead to forehead... That Burroughs double she hits her with where she keeps her head up and Helen doesn't move her face, lol that's on her... Each time she touched her face, head, hand, and acted like she was just wronged towards the ref... Bad look... I just re-watched and cry baby antics + refusing to shake hands... I'm getting further off the Helen bus. Admittedly though I'm as big an Adekuoroye fan as I am Chamizo, so grain of salt If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  9. At first I thought it was something positive "you've really improved" -esque... But seeing her push Adekuoroye away as she goes in for the hug, make me think she's just sour grapes about getting throttled. For those who haven't watched If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  10. Yeah maybe "a tank" was an exaggeration.... "I fully expect him to manage matches better" is probably how I should've worded it. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  11. Do I remember it incorrectly? I thought he looked great at worlds. Didn't he shut down basically everyone he wrestled? He held Rashidov to like 3 or 4 points in a 1 point loss in the semis then came back and beat Otoguro by a takedown but also shut him down (4-2 or something like that). I would look it up but busy ... Either way, he had a pretty tough draw (as I remember ) and going out on a limb but I think held everyone below 5pts and blew a couple guys out of the water... If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  12. Then she gets waxed in the Repechage :( dangit If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  13. Mus hates exerting himself. I'm super confident he's going to come out with a gas-tank at the Olympics and light some people up, but (other than those big events) I seldom expect him to finish a tournament if he has a tough match before the finals If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  14. A buddy and I discussed it last night and I expected Helen to lose badly but I wasn't sure exactly how badly..... Woke up to see 13-0 and It stinks. I was thinking she'd prove me wrong and lose by 4 or something. Eh well. Still love her *I think I thought she still had medal potential just not Gold, now I'm questioning that. Hope we get a decent draw If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
  15. That dude is the best wrestler on the planet against non-iranian wrestlers . If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask Frank Rizzo because he knows more than me.
