  1. I felt for Geno watching the medal ceremony...you could tell the guy was absolutely heartbroken. With that being said, I still cannot believe how that match ended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Smith kinda reminds me of Tony Romo, who I think is fantastic. Unorthodox but finds a way to make it work most of the time.
  3. I noticed that too with Geno. The quick turn between the gold medal match and the ceremony doesn't give much time to let the emotions subside, especially in as dramatic of a match as that one. He was fighting back tears but being a good sport as the heavyweights were shuffled around the arena for one photo after another.
  4. If that was his last match, I feel fortunate we got to see him wrestle. A generational talent in our sport with as exciting of a finish to a gold medal match as we will ever see...GABLE DAN STEVESON!!!!
  5. How confident are we feeling about Gable's chances in this one? Any doubt at all he doesn't get it done? Really thought we were going to have a Gable - Zare final after the first period of that semi, but credit to Geno for wearing Zare down and finishing those singles. Cannot wait for this match!
  6. Agree. Zare looking good and really pushes the pace. Let’s see if he can gas Geno. Gable is going to smoke the Mongolian.
  7. Taylor on other side of bracket from Yazdani and Nafinov. Gilman draws Uguev in his first match and will have his work cut out.
  8. Definitely not. It would be a case of the 2nd best wrestler in the bracket upsetting the best wrestler due to an unfortunate draw. And yes LJB, we know the Olympics are hard.
  9. The worst possible draw for Mensah. Still expect her to win, but also think a case can be made that Dosho is the 2nd best wrestler in that bracket.
  10. Sorry if this has been asked, but if Lopez and Riza wrestle in the semis, is there a TV channel that will be carrying the match live? Reason I ask is it looks like CNBC or Olympic Channel don’t have live wrestling coverage at that time.
  11. Odds show her first match being against the easiest opponent in the bracket. It gets a little tricky in the quarters and semis, where she will likely face Adar from Turkey and then Vorobieva from Russia in the semis. Both are quality opponents who have a chance to push Adeline.
  12. Gable has moved from +500 to +300 to win. Momentum beginning to pick up.
  13. What outlet are these odds from? Curious what Zare is listed at. Would guess +800.
  14. Being on the west coast, the 7pm starts for the round of 16 and quarters will be great. The 2:15am start on the other hand for the semis and finals is about as rough as it gets.
  15. Expecting a low scoring, defensive match between Sidakov and Dake, with the winner decided in the last 30 seconds. It is one of those matches where you have two studs who will be cautious to take risks, knowing how quickly the other wrestler can capitalize.
  16. Same. Having watched Zare quite a bit, he wants to turn it into a sumo match and push the other guy around and eventually wear them out. He is very good at controlling the center (see his matches against Gwiz and Kerkvliet) and getting the one point push outs. I think a number of guys in the bracket can beat him if they have the right game plan and attack his legs early on.
  17. Really? I prefer these rules to any other men's FS has had in the past. The passivity rule is subjective and far from perfect, but it is better than a ball draw or some of the other funky rules that previously existed. I also like with this current format how you can't give away a round like you could with the previous set of rules. No more 1-0, 0-6, 1-0 matches.
  18. You really think Destribats is a medal contender? I think he is probably just happy to be there and would be happy to win a match. I would be shocked if he medals though.
  19. Does anybody know if such a list exists? Would be nice to see the complete freestyle field at each weight.
  20. 1) Steveson vs. Akgul and/or Petriashvili. I want to see how Gable fares against the world's best. 2) Taylor vs. Yazdani. Plenty of intrigue here for obvious reasons. Hope we get this as a gold medal match. 3) Dake vs. Sidakov. Feels hard to bet against Dake with how he looked at trials, but Sidakov does have that clutch gene. I’d expect a lower scoring, defensive match between these two that is ultimately decided in the final 30 seconds. 4) Snyder vs. Sadulaev. Flowrestling is doing their best to convince U.S. wrestling fans that Sadulaev recently looked mortal and Snyder can beat him if the stars align. Not sure I buy it, but I do think Cael and Co. will do everything possible to have Snyder ready for this matchup. Mohammadian obviously could have something to say about all of this.
  21. Can't wait to see how Gable Steveson does at 125 KG. Some tough competition for sure, but seems like it would be silly to totally count him out against the best.
  22. 125 Spencer Lee 133 Tariq Wilson 141 Yianni 149 Lugo (long shot pick, but he is wrestling much better lately and weight seems wide open) 157 Nolf (Slam dunk) 165 Marinelli (Coin flip between him and Cenzo) 174 Hall 184 Mylers Martin 197 Nickal (best P4P wrestler in NCAA) 285 Gable Steveson
  23. I noticed that too. Perhaps he thought he was being humiliated further, instead of just appreciating it for the friendly gesture that it was by Bo.
