  1. Definitely surprised by his lack of offensive attempts. Being with Okie State - offensive minded coaching certainly is not the problem. BUT - sometimes wrestling great wrestlers can make us look like we are not trying when we actually are.
  2. Pretty sure a lot of people are watching US Open via Flo - so while your opinion is that it is BS....The opinion of many is that it is very valid...considering it is a HUGE tourney for US wrestlers and Flo is covering. So while it is your choice to not pay for Flo - I don't think you can tell people to "stop posting" - If the Mat.com forum admins allow it...then it's game.
  3. Agreed - scoring was tough. I felt like Welch came out on the wrong side of scoring twice - One being in the last seconds when they went out of bounds (I thought Welch had 2 exposure points there).
  4. No doubt about it. Corey (Shakur) Rasheed is the best in the weight class. He wins that match 99/100 times. However, Decarlo (who came back to take 3rd) was given a raw deal. Sometimes the best kid does not win the match...unless the refs are afraid to call a fair match. Either way, no hate on Rasheed...he is obviously a GREAT wrestler and I'll be hoping he puts together a great career at PSU.
  5. Also heard Rasheed will be going to Penn State. Not sure if you caught his Semi-Final match (won 1-0); however, it was pretty controversial in his favor. Section IX kid took him down in the first period at the edge - but the ref called it out of bounds (looke legit and in bounds). In the third with Rasheed up by 1, the Section IX kid looked to ecscape and it seemed that he had the one...then threw Rasheed (but that was clearly out of bounds); HOWEVER, the ref's got together and did not give the escape point...which from what I saw was absolute robbery. Rasheed basically stalled out the rest of the time on top. Not sure if there is a video out there...but Rasheed was given a gift. Honestly seemed like the refs were afraid to call points against rasheed. I have no ties to the Section IX kid...but he was really given the shaft...and the crowd was booing the refs.
  6. Agreed. I'm a subscribing member. I hate the re-load feature. I am someone who likes to read through comments - and this interferes with that.
  7. Dean wrestled SMART !!! Ruth looked gassed from the get-go. Dean with a beautiful set of takedowns and rode ruth. I guess having Damion Hahn as a workout partner is an asset. Makes things a little more interesting.
  8. Agreed. I was looking to watch 125 and 133. Granted I enjoy all the weights..but the Nico Garrett match was the one.
  9. Agreed. They need to give me something back. If I order a pay per view on time warner cable and it does not work...guess what...your giving my money back. I don't mind paying for wrestling and am typically a fan of Flo and will continue to be in the future..but they need to make good.
  10. Agreed. They need to give me something back. If I order a pay per view on time warner cable and it does not work...guess what...your giving my money back. I don't mind paying for wrestling and am typically a fan of Flo and will continue to be in the future..but they need to make good.
  11. You are ABSOLUTELY right. This system is criminal. With the type of gritty, fighting, and work harder than anyone attitudes that wrestlers are known for....we surely continue to get bent over. How are we supposed to entice wrestlers to stay in the sport and not leave for MMA when they work so hard and get so little in return.
  12. Agreed. definitely something I disliked immediately. Also, I understand that we can open in a new window, bookmark, etc. However, most people do not and will not do this...and will be put off by the forum structure. Just my opinion.
  13. Garrett just took it to another level in the 2nd and 3rd period. Just fearless with that elbow and wrist roll through tilt.
  14. Watching Nashon Garrett, I can't help but compare him to a young Travis Lee. He is ridiculously athletic, full of energy, and is a straight goer. Obviously, having a career like Lee is a tall order, but curious if you all see it.
  15. Agreed....Nelson is horrible to watch. Does nothing. Yes, he is tough...I imagine he'd be better if he had some offense.
  16. He is very impressive. He just makes it look so easy. I couldn't believe he was getting turns in the quarters with a claw/wrist. Although, I think the best technician in the tourney is Jordan O.
  17. I think for the sake of wrestling, referres need to start calling stalling more often when guys are just dropping down to a leg and holding on. Ride-outs are essentially 30 seconds of who can hang on. Obviously not something that refs should start to call at NCAA's; instead in the beginning of the season so that the precedent is set.
  18. He's just a punk. Yes, he is a great wrestler...but a punk.
  19. I consider myself pretty unbiased. I like both Taylor and Dake (I'm a New Yorker). I've brought my son to clinics run by each of the wrestlers...and they were both great guys with the kids. My input.... No reversal for Dake. Also, I thought it should have been 1 at the end....but I'm not sure if I thought that because I wanted OT.
