    Would love to see multi screen option, similar to how ESPN allows you to select and watch multiple mats in a quad screen. There are many dual meets on at the same time. I have talked to a friend of mine who produces video for a major TV network and he said the technology is not expensive or complicated.

    jstock reacted to wfan24 in Kuramed Kuramagomedov interview   
    I translated another interview for the forum from this multiple time world and european champion.
     
    source: http://www.wrestrus.ru/news/smi/Pressa_o_nas/kuramagomed_kuramagomedov_vsegda_nado_borot_sja_tol_ko_za_pervoe_mesto_v_nas_tak_vlozhili_s_detstva_molodezh_dagestana_06_09_2017
     
    – How do you evaluate the performance of Rashidov (Kuramagomedov's student)?
     
    – Well, it we are talking purely about results and of our wrestling club, then a 2nd place at the worlds is a good result. This is his first time wrestling seniors at the worlds. Until then, he was wrestling juniors and winning, similarly European seniors. Of course, if we look closely at the final match -- I believe that Rashidov picked the wrong tactical plan. He was rushing.
     
    – When you saw Rashidov's draw,  where he got Stieber, the world champ, Olympic champion Hinchegashvili, and Opan Sat (now wrestling for Turkey), what did you think?
     
    – You wouldn't believe, but I was absolutely calm. Why? Well,  Rashidov trains in my room and I saw the shape he was in and his focus. I saw that he is cutting weight well.v I talked to the head Russian team doctor and he said that Rashidov is feeling physically great. Because of that I was sure that he will overcome these opponents. And in general, recently, he was practically never losing any matches. I was only worried about the final.
     
    You need to be a wrestler, so that you can understand what I want to tell you. Rashidov finished all his preliminary bouts and there was time until the final. He went to the restaurant and he had to eat something, something healthy. Instead what happened is he just ate something quick in some restaurant, and on top of that it was not proper food. And because of that, when I talk to the Russian head coaches I always tell them: take a cook with you, just one. Let him cook the right foods so that the wrestler can recover. Something liquid and hot/soup...where can we get this? Because of that, when I saw Rashidov before the final, I understood that he had not recovered fully. And then I started to worry. 
     
    – Did you watch all of his matches at the worlds? Which match did you like most? 
     
    – One usually most likes the matches you win (laughs), nobody likes losses. All his matches were interesting. It was very interesting to see him vs. the Georgian, but the match I liked most was vs. Stieber (USA). He was a world champ, yet Rashidov easily beat him.
     
    – Head coach Tedeev said that: If Rashidov followed the game plan, the result would be very different. What game plan would you give him?
    – Well, whatever game plan a coach would have given him, if the wrestler has not recovered mentally, then no plan will help him. Of course, he could have waited these 2 periods, not attack and try to keep 1:1, don't wrestle, but this is not serious. As for the game plan, then a minute before the end, losing 1:5, he was in a hurry, he decided to attack with one big score. Why did he had go for the big move like that? This is youth and inexperience. A lot can happen in a minute -- takedown, turn, etc, lots of time, one can score...To go crazy like that, one can do 10 seconds before the end...I think in the future, he will not make such mistakes.
     
    – Did you talk to him?
    – Yes, he admitted that he was in a hurry and rushed. He said that he failed to do the move as the arm slipped as if the opponent had put oil on himself. He had done this move hundreds of times, but it didn't work here. 
     
    – I have to ask you about Sadulaev...many experts believe that he got too excited with himself with his move to 97kg...What do you think?
    – I don't think that Sadulaev lost the final to Snyder in terms of wrestling per-se. By that I mean, technical moves, takedowns, and so on. Why did the american win? Because of push outs and such stuff...I don't argue that Snyder was stronger in that. But why did Rashid lost? Same problem as Rashidov -- he just didn't recover after 4-5 matches, improper food and lack of weight.
    I already talked to the Russian head team doctor about this: why didn't they help him add the necessary weight? A couple of kilograms so that he would have power? It turns out that the standard vitamins and proteins that the doctors give Sadulaev, he simply refuses to take...I am joking with the doctor: may be he doesn't thrust you? (laughs). Medicine doesn't sit in one place...now things are much simpler than earlier when I wrestled.  Now you take some vitamins and you add few kilograms. Don't think that we are talking about some special prohibited substances...these are all officially approved supplements.
     
    Its just that Sadulaev does not want to take any supplements. Who knows, if he had listened to the doctors, perhaps the result would be different, he would have been stronger and more powerful, and would beat Snyder. But it came out the way it did.
     
    Its good Sadulaev lost now. This is just the start of the Olympic cycle. There is still time to understand and repair the mistakes.
     
    Anyway, the main thing I want to say about the bad performance in Paris is the following. Here, everything is important, even the smallest things...But now there is some kind of a confrontation in the Russian team -- Dagestan coaches, Mamiashvili, Tedeev...This all affects the wrestlers. They see all that and it affects them. When there is no good team spirit, this is not normal. At the training camps, one has to have a working atmosphere, wrestlers should not think about side things. Many of our wrestlers lost in the final seconds, by 1 point and I believe such losses are due to the unpleasant situation in the team. This shouldn't happen. Remember when Russia used to win 5 gold medals? This was when there was a great team spirit in the team. That is how it has to be.
     
    – Lets get back to Sadulaev. Arsen Fadzaev advices him to return to 86kg...
    – Fadzaev participated in 2 tournaments in a year -- worlds and Olympics and that was that. He didn't have problem cutting weight. If now, Sadulaev only participates in Russian nationals and the worlds, and the rest of the time he rests, then well, yes, he can stay at 86kg. But this will not happen. He will be sent to tournaments all over. Sadualev will be unable to physically constantly cut weight. Lets remember several wrestlers like Murtazalev, Isagadjiev, and that same Ketoev, all of which destroyed their bodies cutting weight.

    Sadulaev, after all, lost by 1 point, its not like he was losing by 10 points. So it means not all is bad with him in the 97kg class and we need to seek the reasons somewhere else, in particular, what I said above already. And also, ask Sadulaev himself, what does he want? If he loses again at the next tournament, then one can think of changing weight. So far, he only lost 1 tournament by 1 point. So we shouldn't hurry. Sadulaev will figure it out himself.
     
    – Should we say that the worlds are a failure?
    – Without a gold medal or Russia, who considers itself a wrestling country, yes , this is a tragedy. We had 3 finalists and if 1 of them won, we would be speaking differently. But what happened is a catastrophe. And I don't understand why Tedeev says that the worlds are not a principled tournament. How should I understand this?

    Here its important, here its not? One has to wrestle for 1st place everywhere. We were taught that way since we were children. I remember, what focus we had when we had to wrestle an american, this is a true war on the mat and we understood that we are wrestling for Russia, for its prestige. Look at how Americans and Iranians were celebrating when they beat a Russian wrestler in Paris. So, for them, this was a principled tournament, while for us, its not? 
     
    Right now we are seeing the consequences of what happened few years ago when wrestlers started departing from our country. The Russian coaches only took to tournaments their favorite wrestlers, forgetting the no.2's and no.3's.  It shouldn't be like that. When the no.1 has an injury there always has to be someone to replace them. There has to be few good wrestlers in each weight class. It shouldn't be the case that the head Russian coaches have their own personal students and pet wrestlers. Take, for instance, Sajidov. You think he doesn't get wrestlers who come to him to get trained by him personally? Of course they come, but he understands that as a head coach he cannot  have personal students, favorite pet wrestlers. In one word, we have problems and we need to solve these problems now.

    jstock got a reaction from silver-medal in Fan Hate   
    PSU fans endured a long period of underperforming teams and coaches.  Blue Chip PA recruits  failed to reach their potential, were not in shape and  often injured. We always knew the potential that PSU had in PA and it was frustrating for many years.  It was hard to be a fan. Thankfully, Cael too saw the potential and quickly got to work. The hire was kind of the perfect storm for PSU fans.
    Many PSU fans are knowledgeable and not only appreciate what PSU is doing, but also appreciate great wrestling from any kid from any team. There will always be loudmouths in the group who make all in the group look bad. There are a few classless PSU posters on a few different forums that run their mouths. Same is true for most fan bases. I went to NCAA’s a few years ago and stayed in a hotel filled with Iowa fans and they were great, but that was not the impression I expected from reading the forum at the time.  
     
    Don’t judge the group by the few outliers who are vocal of forums.
