  1. 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. 



  2. 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. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    I use chromecast, but it is only as good as the Flowrestling web video server.      My experience in watching  FLO on the web is terrible.   It is not a technical problem at my end, my internet service is excellent and I reliably stream all sorts of video services on apps and through the browser.

    ROKU streaming of FLO works reliably.

    I rejoined Flo Pro recently after years of sitting on sidelines because it looked like FLO was finally moving full events to the ROKU archive.    Well, after a few weeks of using the service, it's becoming clear that the ROKU content is still pretty nominal.    How much trouble would it be to put all FRL broadcasts on ROKU?   FLO only bother to put 1 in 5 shows.    Why aren't all full matches available on the web also on ROKU?

    If the web video streams were reliable, they didn't constantly cut out,  I could live with web browsers and chromecast.     But as the reality is settling in,   I am satisfied only with the sparse content In the ROKU collection.   I have FLO PRO buyer's remorse.     

    It is such an easy problem to fix, it can't be that hard to move content to ROKU & APPLE.

    Who can educate me on Roku/Apple TV stuff? I am not sure how all this stuff works but I am Not sure why Flo can’t have 2/4 mats from same event or even say semi finals from 4 events on Roku/AppleTV. It’s not logical.

    They show FRL with guys in Texas and Willie in PA on Roku. Do they stream the live FRL on Roku or just a replay? If it is live then they prove that they can have split screen from multiple locations streaming on Roku. 

    I would assume that Flo sends the content to Roku and AppleTV so if they have the 4 mat content set up in Texas and send that to Roku as a selection under the event. Exaple Big Tens - Mat1, Mat2, Mat3, Mat4,  4 Mat View  (as opposed to the user on laptop making selection) then it should work. Where is my logic fatally flawed?

    Just via the web/laptop. apple or roku would have to implement a quad-laser view. we can ask for it but it's up to them! hdmi cable, a smart tv or some dongle like chromecast is your best bet to get Flo's new viewing experience on the big screen. 

    You’re welcome wrestling world. I have lobbied Flo at nauseum for about a year. 

    I don’t see how to use split screen with an iPad

    I will be watching with laptop to big screen as suggested..... only I just realized I don’t have the right chord for laptop I have......scheit. I have that HDMI with offset on laptop

    I hope Flo figures out the way we can watch 2/4 mats from same tournament via Roku

  7. Really wish the refs would call stalling on Hwts with same criteria as all other weights. 

    Watch the Cornell vs VaTech HWT match (can’t even call it that, neither of them did anything) and then watch Va vs VaTech stalling calls throughout match.
