    why is Russia need a bad coach like Beloglazov? He was fired in Belarus and Kazakhstan. Why is he in the Russian team? This is logical. Russian coaches won 11 world titles since 1992 in freestyle and 13 in greco. Beloglazov is amazing wrestler. I respect him and dont want say sh*t about his coach career. But...here people know him like coach who did not win in his career as a coach

    This is true.  
    But I disagree with the notion that he only cares to work with the elite. When I was in eighth grade he worked with me on my single leg and taught me several slightly different finishing variations. He also spent time teaching my brother and I various leg turks. With that said, he wasn’t “coaching” but simply teaching technique. But, he taught simply and effectively.

    Yeah I’m assuming that means not literally anyone, but that competitor credentials aren’t an important component when determining if someone can teach technique.

    If USA Wrestling isn’t paying for EVERY expense I will be appalled. This is 100% on them liability-wise. And more importantly, morally. The fact that there is a go fund me sickens me.
     
    USA Wrestling should have had a release stating all costs concerning this will be paid for. Travel, loss of salary, etc.
     
    I’d love to be wrong about this, but it sure doesn’t sound like USA Wrestling is owning up.

    Too much liquid baggage.  Plus, he'll make more than twice as much in his current role as a club coach there.  Erisman will do a good job.  ADs are doing a better job of finding the best coaches, as opposed to the most credentialed athlete.

    vhsalum got a reaction from AnklePicker in Wrestling live ?   
    It honestly depends on the level of your team.  Low to mid-level?  Yeah, the primary focus should be drilling to get that muscle memory.
     
    As they get better, and the competition gets better, they are going to need to live wrestle more.  Drilling cannot replace the feel of live, the chain wrestling that occurs, the feel that you need.  It would be nice if we could drill EVERYTHING, all the time, every week.  But it's impossible.  They need to learn how to actually wrestle as well.  Situational live goes are great, and allow you to build some muscle memory with a live feel.  But athletes have to wrestle to get better at it, and more importantly, they have to wrestle without 'instruction' - every athlete is different, and while there are general principles, without a good base of wrestling live, they will miss out on the endless possibilities our sport presents.
     
    I can always tell when a "good" guy comes from a relatively drill heavy team.  They just don't have a feel for what comes next.  I'm sure that sounds confusing, but the guys that are scrambling (and I don't mean roll to your back), the guys that are scoring late, the guys that are defending a leg attack for 40 seconds - those guys have a lot of live in their practice structure.
     
    And Martin had a lot things going for him.  His guys wrestled year round, they competed OFTEN (live wrestling) and he was such a meat grinder of a coach, that he created just tough dudes.  
     
    You have to have hours and days of live wrestling.  You have to wrestle matches often.  Hopefully you can get them understanding the concept of sparring.
     
    There is absolutely a medium and a balance you have to find.  Getting as close to 50/50 for high school teams is a big deal.  You really can't go just drill intensive, because they will miss out on the higher level stuff that can't be taught, and must be felt repeatedly.  And you can't just let them live wrestle to death and create bad habits.

    Actually.  I wouldn't say that at all.
     
    We're winning these matches based on American - "Iowa Style" grinding.  I'm talking the old school Gable-coached, McIlravy, Ironside - you actually try to attack style wrestling.
     
    These 3 minute periods are excellent for us.  The biggest difference?  All of these kids have a much larger and better freestyle base.  Exposing them to senior level athletes and getting them international competition is giving them a feel for the Russians, Azeris, Iranians, et al.  
     
    Fix, took what?  ONE shot all day?  Gable is snapping these dudes into another dimension, Deakin just keeps coming and Zahid just keeps shooting.  
     
    Let's give credit where it's due.  This is American wrestling at its finest and we are absolutely out-pacing these Euros to death!

    Has a LITTLE to do with it.  I was going to write a separate post, and I may still.  But we all need to send a hearty thank you and congratulations to the vision of Zeke Jones.  The very first thing he did as head coach of the Freestyle team was getting the camps in order for the cadet and junior level kids to train alongside the Senior world teamers.  
     
    I thought it would be 2024 before we saw the true fruition of the work, but I might be one cycle off.  No matter what, the US is judged by its Olympic medal count.  Since I don't know what the weights will be - but we do know it will be only 6 weights - look at the depth

    You might want to hold off on making that statement.  Although I guess that's the point of message boards though!
     
    Here's what I can tell you, and makes me think Iowa could fall behind Iowa State with Brands at the helm
     
    re: Iowa
    With Brands at the helm they are losing some of their luster and they are not dogged-recruiters-type.  While Iowa will always have a certain appeal to in-state kids and a national brand that ISU does not, that can easily be overcome.  And recruiting in-state kids is not that big of a deal considering Iowa high schools are pretty low in depth of talent
     
    re: ISU
    Dresser is a proven CEO.  The administration is already flooding the school with funds - Dresser is a GREAT fundraiser.  I'm talking, 6-figure check in hand after a dinner great.
     
    Zadick IS the dogged-recruiter type.  And he's GREAT in the room.  Kids really do flock to him, he seems to genuinely care about his athletes and his athletes respond.  
     
    Metcalf is going to be a GREAT coach.  It sounds like as the volunteer assistant, he's going to be killing it in the realm of the Cyclone Wrestling Club.  This is a huge area of need that Iowa currently is lacking.  A consistent Senior-level club.  If Dresser can pull of an Ohio State type environment, with a club that is pushing tOSU and Nittany Lion, ISU will become the brand name school in the state of Iowa.  I don't mean that the Cyclone Wrestling Club needs to have multiple World representatives - but if Dresser can attract (read: pay) Senior level guys in a way the Hawks can't.... He's going to consistently beat the Hawks.

    What?  You have no way to quantifiably or even anecdotally say that stalling will increase in neutral.  AT ALL.  If even anything it will decrease stalling on the feet.  I'm not sure if you've noticed, but kids are trying to score points.  And I'll give the officials a little credit here, but stalling is being called more forcibly since the 80s.  Not as forcibly as I would prefer, but still much better.  
     
    Plus, with a 3 point takedown, and the four point nearfall, you will see the comebacks we all love.  Coupled with the increase in stalling calls, and you have a better product.  Since the four point nearfall, we've seen an EXPONENTIAL increase in scoring on top.  The evidence points that wrestling will increase when you increase the point value, not vice versa.
