    Coach_J reacted to Shiraz123 in Alans International Tournament -Russia   
    I totally forgot. For some reason I thought his bronze was this year. It would however still be the first time an Iranian junior eligible HW beats a multiple time medalist from America at the Alans.

    I'm trying to say that if Zare were to somehow pull off the upset against Gwiz he would be making history as it would be the first time that an Iranian junior eligible wrestle has beaten a returning American heavyweight world medalist at the Alans tournament.

    How about all the times when reactionaries like Askren, Saylor, Schultz and so many other right wing (anti-vaxxers and religious nuts) would add their ignorant and often racist two cents to the dialogue?  The wrestling community is so extremely right wing and authoritarian it ignores its own biases.  It so bloody rural and religious and conservative it can't see it's own blindnesses.    It is uncritical and accepting of ignorant and dangerous fools like Jordan and Hastert and so many others.  Foley is so much smarter and more educated than the majority of the parochial wrestling community.

    And it's true that for the past 20 years the wrestlers climbing to the top of the political junk heap have tended to be hyper-conservative and not altogether that compassionate, thoughtful, or jacket-wearing.
    Kinda got off topic?

    If remembering and honoring the anniversary of the tragic death of a US Senator who also happened to be an accomplished college wrestler is "political" then we are for sure
    DONE AS A SOCIETY!

    I thought he was 19?  Essentially no different than Mark Hall/Logan Stieber age wise at that level. In terms of academics, there are many classes at every big school like tOSU/OSU/PSU/Alabama for athletes to stay eligible, as long as he shows up to class.  Your post seems very bitter for some unknown reason.

    Not indicted != debunked.  Also, politically motivated?  A Republican  president is investigated by a Republican appointed former FBI director while the House and the Senate are Republican controlled - Sounds more like a cover up than a witch hunt!

    I shouldn't get into this but Mueller debunked nothing of the sort. He only said that he was going within the DOJ guidelines NOT to indict a sitting president so he didn't take a stand on the issue either way.

    I think the issue was that he told everyone that he didnt know when its clear now that he did. It must be tough to tell the truth when you are sooooooo used to lying and deflecting.

    There was a case a few years ago near where I live. I apologize, but dont feel comfortable explaining every detail here. A manager of a local business had been taking high school boys to conferences on road trips for work. In every case the manager managed to get the 16-18 year olds away from the group where he performed sex acts on them. The story came out years after these events with multiple guys coming out. I knew one of them through family friends. He was 6'5 in high school. Every single one of the victims said that when something happened they froze. I dont get it, but I also dont think I should pretend to understand it either.

    There was always a pretty solid chance of this happening considering his triple re-commit de-commit.  Clearly Snyder was a big factor in him choosing Ohio State to begin with.

    Coach_J reacted to irani in Most shocking defeats   
    So here is how I will rank the 6 and I listed
    6. I will rank Gardner over Kraelin 6th.  It was towards the end of Kraelin's career, and no legitimate points were scored.
    5. I will rank Khadem over Khadartsev 5th, because again it was towards the end of Khaderstev's career
    4. Taylor over Yazdani is 4th, because Yazdani's credentials are nowhere near the other 5 in this list
    3.  Blubagh over Habibi is 3rd because it was more like an accident.  Habibi was dominating the match and got caught
    2. Sourian who was and is considered one of the GOAT is 2nd because while it was a shock, Sourian did lose again in that same Olympics and a future one
    1. Slay over Satiev has to be the top.  It was a confident execution of a bold game plan against one of the GOAT, who won many medals before and after that loss

    Coach_J reacted to irani in Most shocking defeats   
    Which upsets truly shocked you? I can think of a few candidates,  but there are probably other good ones
    2000 olympics, Brandon Slay defeats the unbeatable Buvaisar Saitiev  1960 (yes, I am not old enough to remember, but have heard about it enough times) Douglas Blubagh defeats arguably the best wrestler of that time Habibi  3. Taylor Pins the Olympic champion Hassan Yazdani in the world cup, and then beats him again the world championship to show that it was not a fluke 
     
    4. Rasul Khadem defeats the legendary Makharbek Khadartsev in 1994 and does it again 1995 and 1996 to show that it was not a fluke 
     
    5. Rulon E. Gardner defeating Russia's Aleksandr Karelin in 2000 olympics 
     
    6. Hamid Sourian w in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, losing in the quarterfinals by eventual gold medalist Nazyr Mankiev of Russia (mercifully, I could not find a video)

    Years ago I had proposed a similar format (like ski model also) to UWW. No response.
    A mixture of Freestyle and Greco with a super fight in Pankration could be awesome.

    Will never happen, but have always thought it would be cool if Worlds/Olympics did a combined style to determine the most well-rounded wrestler.  Coin flip determines if they start FS or GR.  In case of two pins, the fastest fall is the winner.  Sports like swimming and track allow one guy to win numerous medals by mixing styles and/or distances; wrestling could have this option.
