  1. Most elite gymnasts would not be great wrestlers. They are top-heavy...too much weight in the arms and chest, not much lower body power.
  2. Who's the worst guy who could kick anyones ass who has posted on this thread.
  3. Let's not like act like U23 is a tournament that anyone has lifetime dreams of winning. It is a nice opportunity for international experience, that's all. Michael Kroells talks about how he never knew about it until a month before the qualifier.
  4. At the olympic trials in Iowa last cycle, not only was he in the trials, but also the junior event that was going on at the same time. He was running back and forth doing both tournaments at the same time, with like 10-15 minutes rest at times. I think he had about 6 matches in before lunch.
  5. They didn't meet. Both lost to Berger.
  6. Not a super exciting Match. I thought Thorn and Marko looked good for the Gophers. Mitch McKee started slow, but got two 3rd period takedowns against Gross.
  7. Brayton Lee interview https://twitter.com/mrgood_bhstv/status/930580108540305408
  8. 133 is a pretty big cut for M. McKee. I wouldn't be surprised if he redshirts next year and then moves up to 141 after Thorn graduates.
  9. Well at least ASU doesn't wrestle Apple Valley this week.
  10. Well Minnesota won the team score 293.5 to 237, so they looked OK too I guess. Plus 2 high school recruits in the finals.
  11. Minnesota Morris: Dennis Koslowski 2x olympic medalist in greco
  12. Expect some great video production in Gopher-land this year!
  13. Hayden Zillmer Crosby-Ironton, MN (NDSU) So 103 Jr 112 Sr 130 College 142-184 Currently wrestling 216 internationally
  14. I don't think Kerkvliet is going to get as big as some of you think. Although one never knows with someone that age.
  15. Watching all the USA matches it seems like our guys are just killing it with our short offense. The foreigners don't seem to have much defense for our snaps, drags, shucks, and slide-by's. These are skills that are utilized in folkstyle. Or maybe are athleticism and conditioning is just that much better this year.
  16. But, I believe you can voluntarily take less. Perhaps this was suggested by the staff.
  17. I don't know about t-shirts, but this definitely gives the Gophers the potential for a more balanced lineup. They were 0-17 in duals at 149 last year (between 5 guys).
