    Surprised to see 61 so full but good to see Bogomoev on the mat.  Radik, will he go 57 for the Olympic process?

    Well, he scored seven points in the first 16 seconds, and only four points in the next 19 seconds, so he was clearly gassing.

    The Yianni - Zain - Joey - international opponents circular firing squad is kind of puzzling. That dude JO, though. <3

    Colon needs a chance to work his gut wrench.  He can be brutal when he locks that up.

    You mean the move he almost hit before Mohammadian countered right to a stick? He has not evolved. The world did not wait for him to.

    Since we are discussing Mohammadian, I will share a couple of facts about his father that some of you may not know
    His father is Askari Mohammadian, two time Olympics Silver Medalist.
    He was unfortunate enough to run into Sergei Beloglazov in the 1988 finals, and into John Smith in the 1992 finals!

    100%... I was telling @Abdullahgadzhi Khuzin that that's how we do it here in America, if you're a foreigner and you don't give us the match we want. You're a coward, and should lose points, and this and that, but when it's one of our guys..... well you know, there were various reasons this made sense :)
    It's fun to watch

    I think I heard or read they were trained by an Iranian and are coached by a Russian?  Is that correct, 'people in the know?'

    Other reasons, too.  As we've all seen, some of that "fodder" turns into some damn tough competitors.  Brian PIcklo at Michigan State didn't even qualify for state as a high school senior and became a 2-time D-I All-American.

    Coach _J A lot of the same is now also being said about a lot of women's college teams. The market is flooded. "we often forfeited three, sometimes four weights--there just weren't enough bodies.  Even then, we would have to bump girls around just to fill out the remaining weights (we had no one at 101, a kid who had never wrestled before at 109, and no one at heavyweight (191), and we were thin at other weights where we often had to bump a slightly bigger girl."

    There's a lot more to this story, but in general the program was mismanaged at about every level in the time I was there.  When I arrived, we often forfeited three, sometimes four weights--there just weren't enough bodies.  Even then, we would have to bump guys around just to fill out the remaining weights (we had no one at 125, a kid who had never wrestled before at 133, and no one at heavyweight, and we were thin at other weights where we often had to bump a slightly bigger guy up).  I got to recruit the next year we had a full but very young roster (that recruiting class was ranked in the top 20, something the school had never done before).  Too many other details I'm skipping, but you get the idea.  That first year, the D-II school I used to coach at dualed us and kicked the you know what out of us.  Some people get stuck on the idea that "it's D-I so it has to be better."  Simply not the case in many circumstances.
