    Doc_Hfuhruhurr reacted to MedicineMan in Better than Cael Sanderson....for sure.   
    In 1966, a high school sophomore named Siddidi Finch, an adopted Iranian-born foster child from Oak Park, Illinois, whose parents died in a plane crash near Nepal, entered the Tbilisi tournament in Georgia and won... defeating 5-time world champ Ali Aliyev.  He was denied the championship' however, when it was discovered he did not meet the minimum age requirement of 18 years.

    He never wrestled in high school folk style matches and only pursued freestyle. The majority of his training during his teen years occurred in Japan, where he was coached by the father of Yojiro Uetake Obata, and accompanied the elder Uetake on many trips to Tibet to learn yogic mastery of mind-body under the great poet-saint Lama Milaraspa.  The elder Uetake when asked about the wrestling skills of the teenage Finch, stated:  "Siddidi has taught my son, Yojiro, many skills."

    He did however, after graduating high school, walk on at Portland State university, where he twice defeated Rick Sanders in wrestle offs, but was denied a starting spot in the line up because of "academic performance"... The truth is, Finch rarely attended classes, other than to take exams, and in fact his GPA was a 4.0, but the University staff frowned on his absences from the classroom.

    After the debacle at Portland State, Finch decided not to pursue a wrestling career, instead choosing to play the French horn or golf or something.  What if.... Imagine how great he would have been.

    Below is the only known photo of Finch, sparring with Yojo, taken by his father:

    Patently false. 197 was definitely weaker, as outlined by the good uncle, and so was 184 with Zahid gone.  Picc/Mueller/Glory/Lee is a better top 4 than many weights.

    They're not rewarding not showing up.  They're rewarding Lee being a better, more dominant wrestler who equals or beats Moore on all criteria.

    Makes me laugh that some still want to point to missing a match the week immediately prior to the US Senior Nationals where he hoped to qualify for the US Olympic Trials and he missed matches the week after he won the US Senior Nationals where he blew through a bracket with 6 former NCAA Champions, a World Jr. Silver medalist and a host of other All-Americans.  Also, don't forget that Tom Brands announced that he would miss matches on both weekends prior to the season even starting.   I guess those of you that hold that opinion are in the distinct minority, since Intermat stated that his margin of victory in the voting was one of the largest margins ever amongst the voting panel and he also won the popular vote by taking 58% of the total votes among the 8 finalists.   His bonus point percentage is only second to Caels 95% and he had a bonus percentage of 94%.   Rather than try to tear down a young mans accomplishments, I'll just echo what the obvious vast majority are saying today--well done Spencer Lee.

    Criteria for the award includes a wrestler’s record, number of pins, dominance on the mat, past credentials, quality of competition, sportsmanship/citizenship and heart.
    That's directly from the WIN website.
    Record:  Equal, they're both undefeated.
    Number of pins:  Equal, they both have 4, though it should be noted Spencer's pins were over better guys.
    Dominance on the Mat:  Spencer.  Bonus in every match but one.
    Past credentials:  Spencer, two time champion.
    Quality of competition:  Equal at best for Moore.  His best win was over Eric Schultz.  Spencer majored Nick Piccininni.
    Sportsmanship and heart are always a wash.
     
    Anyway, it's an easy call by criteria.

    Assuming he gets 35 or so matches in this year and with a high probability of 3 years running, undefeated- how will Ruth compare in the record books, as to other unbeaten strings and his coach's 159-0?

    Doc_Hfuhruhurr reacted to Cptafw164 in I had COVID-19...this is BS   
    My profession requires me to travel frequently.  I went to south Korea in November and Japan in December.  Got sick in Feb when I was in Tacoma.  I just stayed in my hotel and drank water, Gatorade and slept.  Came back and they said it was Covid.  
     
    It took me out for approximately 3 days.  I DID have a flu shot, so that helped because I had SOME more antibodies to help.  
     
    But this is complete BS and 100% political.  H1N1 didn’t cause this much hysteria.  My 3.5 year old daughter got H1N1 and she survived.
