  1. The ONLY way I see Nolf not getting TF is if he gains a ton of strength/ mass and has to cut to make 74. Nolf won’t be able to get close to any offense if he can’t move Dake out of his strong defensive stance. That is why Nolf has struggled vs IMar. 

    Will be interesting to see if Nolf got bigger since his last appearance at 74

  2. I would like to contact ESPN and ask them to reestablish the 4 mat view option for the NCAA tournament since I will be watching from home.  The tournament is way easier to watch with 2 streams on 4 mats on w big screen TV’s than constantly switching mats or managing the “too many streams” error.

    I am curious if this option is important to other fans watching at home and would you pay for the option on ESPN+.

    Sign up for your week or two free of YouTube TV (app for some tv stream devices or just watch on your phone) and you’ll get the Olympic Channel as part of the live channel package.  On top of that you can place the shoes on your watch list so the video will be saved like DVR for you to watch later if you couldn’t see it live.  I’m guessing that options on the trial features too (if not you still can catch it live at least).  Hulu, Sling, or another Internet tv stream service may have a similar trial offer which includes the Olympic Channel, though I’m not sure which ones also have the free record feature.  I dropped cable this summer and picked up YouTube TV and have no complaints.  Saves me a ton of cash and I get more channels I like now compared to before.  

    I’m having a problem finding how to watch live and “place the shoes” to rewatch live or replay

  4. All in HS, blew out shoulder before Sr. year in HS

    Sean O'Day - NCAA Champ for Edinboro - Lost twice - pretty  close matches

    Bubba Strauss - Ohio State champ, Went to Iowa. Lost in St. Ed's finals. Worst 6-0 ass whooping of my life.  Link below to Spiral ride.

    Craig Olmstead - Match where I blew my shoulder out. Defending world (?) and National Greco champ and I was leading when I fell back and posted with arm. (Had to be leg foul btw)


    Paul Keysaw - NCAA Champ - Won, match not close

    Beat a few PA state champs in FS (Reed and Kennedy) and pinned NY state champ (Billups) in folkstyle and a bunch of PA placers. Never made it to PA states though. Headcase with confidence/pressure issues.

    Jimmy Carr was my coach in 7th and 8th grade, Nate would come practice at his alma matre to work with brothers Solo and Mike when on break from Iowa State. Those guys showed me what wrestling the next level felt like. Humiliating, demoralizing and baffling. Incredibly talented and were the nicest guys off the mat. 



  5. I am tired of being held hostage by the corrupt IOC as the limit the weights in our sport while adding subjective leisure activities into Olympics. Therefore, I would be in favor of wrestling leaving the Olympics and just countinue with 2020 world championships with all weights. We could then go to full repacharge since we wouldn’t have to modify our results to meet IOC metrics on medal distribution. 

  6. I have heard that Nolf doesn’t go hard in practice in the standard sense. He is experimenting and creating more than full out competitive live go’s. By contrast, Zain has no chill and is full on like go all the time. I think there was a Mark Hall interview that indicated that.

  7. Not sure why people are so hard on this kid. He seemed honest and even humble. No w5estler gets to NCAA finals or even AA without confidence in themselves. Interviewers ask the question and the kid gets criticized for his honest answer. I was bummed when he left PSU but Rutgers is simply a better fit for him. Suriano was dissed pretty bad at dual by both Desanto and Iowa coaches. His actions after match were not as bad as how Desanto acted after dual.
