    Coach_J got a reaction from BadgerMon in How did Kazakhstan get 2nd place?   
    Those "random draws" kept coming out smellin' pretty darn good for Team Kazahkstan!  Pure coincidence I'm sure as we all know UWW/FILA's history of spotless integrity is beyond reproach...

    He just beat Shabonov (3x world medalist), Takatani (world silver), and Torreblanca (Pan Am champ who beat Downey) and he would have no chance against the Deans, Ruth, Hall, or Ringer?  Alrighty then...

    Oh, stop. He got a luck draw and beat some inferior guys.  Then he got embarrassed by GERMANY, which then lost to San Marino.

    KAZ managed to qualify every weight but 86kg and 125kg.
    And all they had to do to qualify 86kg was beat the Colombian. But their guy couldn’t do that.

    Honestly I am sure avoiding all the stress and focus of criticism that PD3 had to face was probably extremely beneficial.
    Being able to focus on getting better while learning from an old school great.
    Add in that he is probably one of the most fundamentally sound wrestlers we have seen in a while and he's going to succeed at any style of wrestling.
    He lacks that funk and athleticism we see in other high-end prospects, but he makes up for it with consistency, cardio, control, and grit. Add in that he is always getting better and he will continue to surprise doubters who don't think he can win at the highest level just because he is an American wrestling for a different country l.

    Honestly?
    I think a Bo-Amine match would be closer than folks think.
    I don't know which would win.
    At 86kg right now with how Myles has performed, I think it is even money with Valencia and Hall both.
    Styles make matches and Amine always wrestles close. So while Zahid controlled Hall, I believe it's close.
    Amine hasn't made 174 since NCAAs too. So he has a small jump in acclimation to 189 than the other two. 
    I do believe if those four do a round Robin, chances are that going 3-0 is just as likely as 0-3 and wouldn't favor any guy to go 3-0 or 0-3.
    A lot of folks will favor recency bias, however my justification is weight acclimation, right now.

    I think Snyder controlled that match and Shabani was deliberately very defensive for most of the match to keep it close. But teching Alborov was very impressive so I'm very interested to see how he does at worlds and if he continues to improve who knows how 2020 goes...

    After watching that match I came to the conclusion that Shabani could take out Snyder and give Sadulaev a great match on his best day. The kid is a gamer, seems to have a good motor and is STRONG.  Look for great things from him, if not this year, certainly in the Olympics.

    Coach J, I am afraid I will have to reprimand you for not reading every post on this thread :)
    Reza Yazdani took himself out, because he was in poor shape due to constant injuries.
    Also, having three Yazdani's on the team was confusing some of the fans on this thread, so as a gesture of friendship to the American fans,  the Iranian wrestling federation is limiting the number of wrestlers by the same name to just two per wrestling style

    Okay, Mr. Righteous, I'll take it from the top.  You brought up my son in your original diatribe; my son is an Airborne Ranger combat vet of Iraq now serving in another not so nice part of the world--taking any shot at him or even bringing him up is, beyond ignorant, cowardly.  He has no idea who PDII or PDIII are and could give a f$ck. As for PDII, anyone on this forum for any length of time witnessed his helicopter parent daddy cheerleading/excuse making for everything little junior ever screwed up--he's opened himself up to the responses he gets, so deal with it.  You dish it out, you should be able to take it.  As for PDIII, I'm not a fan but I don't root against him, just indifferent and immune to the so-far unearned hype. If he wins a world medal, good for him, but the incessant "me against the world" is tiresome, particularly when most of his problems he's brought on himself, not "the haters" or anyone else daddy says pooped in junior's pants (ex-girlfriends, ex-coaches, yada yada).  Do something, win some bouts at the Dogu, then talk all you want.  And yes, I am a coach and father, and one rule is talk after you've proven something.  If PDII medals (hell, takes 5th, wins some bouts against top opponents) I'll congratulate him and listen to all the talk he wants to give because he'll have earned it.

    No, I would not say that the system failed in this particular case but I would still think returning bronze medalists shouldn’t sit in the finals.
     
    The last 2 times we’ve seen Downey wrestle was at Dogu and the WTT tournament. At the WTT tournament he needed a miracle comeback against Myles Martin, and Martin looked like the clearly better wrestler 95% of the match. He then squeaked by Heflin in the finals. Then he went 0-2 at Dogu and was far and away the weakest American 2019 world team member at that tournament. To me he looks improved compared to 2 years ago when he got teched by Taylor but it’s by no means a drastic improvement. He’s just nowhere near the level of Cox, Taylor or Ringer.
