    I’m surprised Flo didn’t put up a “why Willie left” teaser vid with the full explanation behind a paywall.

    Yeah, this is a question that was on everyone's mind. I'm glad it is getting sorted out. Hopefully I can sleep now.

    Coach_J reacted to steamboat_charlie v2 in Kerkvliet has entered the transfer portal...   
    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.

    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

    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.

    Thanks for posting.
    You are right, the interviewer was terrible, and obviously did not know anything about wrestling.
    Karimi said Cox is a different wrestler than everyone else I have wrestled he has a different style and a different body type.  It's a problem I have not been able to solve.  The reporter then asked him how many times they have wrestled and Karimi sheepishly said four time.  the interview they said, "and you still haven't figured it out"?
    To be fair, I think the coaches should have the primary responsibility for figuring out the best way to wrestle Cox.  He has lost before, they need to review his losses and plan a different approach against him.  He did say their plan was to attack low, but Cox negated that strategy by keeping a distance from him.  He also said there were other people both domestic and international that he had difficulties with, but eventually defeated them. This whole issue is now moot, because we have no idea what weight Cox will wrestle at in the Olympics, and whether he will even qualify for the Olympics. 
    When he was asked about whether he moved to 92 because of Hassan Yazdani, he said Khadem and Talaie suggested to him that the move to 92.  To me that is an affirmative answer to the Hassan question
    Karimi looks way too small for 97 to me.  Has said he is very comfortable wrestling 97 KG wrestlers, so he pretty much implied he will move up to 97 Kg.  I cannot see him medaling in 97, US, Russia, and Azerbaijan probably have a big advantage over him

    interesting interview with Alireza Karimi
    https://video.varzesh3.com/video/201457/مصاحبه-جذاب-با-علیرضا-کریمی،-نایب-قهرمان-کشتی-جهان
    the host is kind of stupid and amateur, but still there were some interesting questions. he also put Karimi in an uncomfortable situation telling him something like "did you move up because of Hassan Yazdani ? can you beat him ? "
    Karimi also said Cox is like a missing address for him. one day he will find that address (to how to beat him) lol

    Iran National Championships Finals
    57kg: Mohsen Maleki (Tehran Environs) beat Mohammad Kaboli (Alborz) 7-2
    61kg: Majid Dastan (Tehran) beat Mohammad Maleki (East Azarbaijan) 10-0
    65kg: Morteza Ghiasi (Lorestan) beat Mehran Sheikhi (Mazandaran) 7-4
    70kg: Mehdi Yeganeh-Jafari (Mazandaran) beat Hossein Mostafavi (East Azarbaijan) 6-2
    74kg: Saeid Dadashpour (Tehran) beat Masoud Kamarvand (Hamedan) 3-2
    79kg: Omid Hassantabar (Mazandaran) beat Mohammad Zare'ei (Kordestan) 13-4
    86kg: Jalal Zaman (Mazandaran) beat Arash Nayyerabadi (Golestan) 4-3
    92kg: Arashk Mohebbi (Kermanshah) beat Meisam Mostafa-Jokar (Hamedan) 6-2
    97kg: Esmaeil Nejatian (Khorasan Razavi) beat Mohammad Hossein Mohammadian (Mazandaran) 4-4
    125kg: Amin Taheri (Tehran) beat Ahmad Rasouli (Golestan) 4-0
    none of the gold medalists are "new" maybe except 57kg and 61kg. Dastan was a bit impressive but the level was also not that great in this weight. Mohammadian-Nejatian was a bit controversial because the scoreboard wrongly showed Mohammadian as the winner but that was a mistake and they fixed it later. Nejatian won the final by a last second pushout.
    Dadashpour is  also still the same. winning his matches in last 20-30 seconds. I don't know if they can count on him for this weak weight though, he is probably not worse than Afzali.

    Yup. There were very few foreigners there so even if he didn’t beat any names, you know the Dagestanis he took out we’re damn good and really didn’t want to lose to an american. Add to that he is a world silver and they were probably all gunning for him, just as our up and comers would do if a random Dagestani world medalist showed up at the Schultz.
