  1. He should have been given extra time to shed the weight. He's a top wrestler so he gets to do that.
  2. Only 3 years from this year's Olympics to the next one means less time to take off and still stay sharp. I think most guys will keep going as the margin for error is too small at this point.
  3. You can call it what you want, it was a major blunder on J'den and KJ's parts. At events like this you triple check weigh-in times and make sure you don't screw something up that is so simple. I would be much more sympathetic if they said there was a car accident that delayed them a half hour. There are too many indications that both of them should have known better about this whole situation.
  4. According to Willie in his intermat article, J'den checked weight on multiple scales just before 8am and was still a little bit over. To me that indicates that someone prompted him to weigh-in since weigh-ins were closing. The thing that gets me is that he was in the weigh-in/workout area and had to have seen guys making weight and recovering. At that point you ask your coach, what time weigh-ins are if you originally thought they were from 8-8:30am.
  5. The scan of him going into the weigh-in room/workout room was at 7:21am. That means the first thing he did was go check his weight to see what he needed to make weight. That is perfectly normal. Now, showing up to the arena at 7:21am means one of two things. The first is he thought he was on weight and good to go or that he thought weigh-ins were a little later so he'd have time to shed the needed weight. However, if it is the latter he should have realized pretty quickly that these were the OFFICIAL weigh-ins and question the timing there. This isn't his first time weighing in and he should have figured it out pretty quickly.
  6. Gable will have multiple national team camps to attend where he will be able to wrestle with guys like Parris, Snyder, Cox, Gwiz, etc along with others that are there. He has even practiced with Brock Lesnar in the past. There are no shortages of quality big guys around Minneapolis to work out with. For the Olympics and few weeks they are in Tokyo you want someone you are familiar with and understands your training needs.
  7. None, there is no where else with the coaching and support they have at NLWC.
  8. Brandon Eggum and Trevor Brandvold will also be there as coaches for him to roll around with.
  9. Both Snyder and DT have plenty of options in the NLWC room of guys they regularly go with. At this point in time these guys are all well established with their current camps and it is hard to imagine they go outside of their current training situations. JO and Dake are the hard ones to pin down. I would guess Dake works out a lot with the Dean brothers so they would be my guess at this point.
  10. Gilman- RBY is definitely possible JO- Likley someone like O'connor or someone he trains with regularly. Yianni wouldn't be too much of a surprise since they were partners for around a year. Dake- No way JB, it will be someone from Cornell Taylor- Bo is probably high on the list, will be someone from NLWC Snyder- Likely someone from NLWC Gable- Nelson is highly likely
  11. He'll bring Brock Lesnar to spar with.
  12. I haven't left my shoes on the mat in case you were wondering.
  13. USAW has to submit their qualification protocol to the US Olympic Committee before it is officially approved. There are many hoops to jump through for Olympic qualification procedures. One of the main reasons we don't have the "Final X" event this year is because USAW is at the mercy of NBC and the USOC.
  14. How did the other 200 wrestlers seem to make it to the scale on time?
  15. It's free on Spotify if you have an account.
  16. Let's look on the bright side, we get Gross vs. Colon first round now.
  17. Over the last 10 NCAA tournaments Overall winning percentage Higher seeds are 148-52 or a 74% winning percentage if you are the higher/better seed.

  18. Cronin used to go to Indiana, which is of course a rival of Purdue. That could explain it.... or maybe not.
  19. From what I have gathered he is moving on and getting a job.
  20. Are you going to write a letter too grandpa? It's 2021, you don't need to have contact with someone to cancel your service. There is also a contact support right on that page also.
  21. If you login and go to Account->Settings and Information then click the manage subscription link you can cancel there. Not sure why people have issues with canceling things. No subscription service is going to plaster how to cancel on their front page.
  22. I heard he kicks everyone out that gets the COVID vaccine. He doesn't want anyone with those tracking chips in them in the room.
  23. A minute and a half of "playing with the wrists' and it's stalling on the bottom guy. That's stalling, never once left the hip and just played with the wrists. If the guy was wearing a Cal Poly singlet he would have been dinged for stalling on top.
  24. The biggest culprit is Cassioppi, he just lays on guys for 45 seconds and never gets hit. Not sure how that isn't stalling. This definitely needs addressed, but as long as they allow it coaches and wrestlers will game the rules.
