    Coach_J got a reaction from MonagFam in What is this technique?   
    We call it a Russian lace--Miron Kharchilava special.  Can be done in folkstyle as well as a breakdown or a finish to a head outside single--very effective in many positions.

    Coach_J reacted to goStanford18 in Max Rohskopf Wrestling Career   
    For further reading and to hear from Rohskopf, himself: https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/6/24/21301297/max-rohskopf-breaks-silence-on-ufc-on-espn-11-decision-to-call-fight-on-stool
     
    I'm having a hard time understanding how there are posters here criticizing Max's decision to throw in the towel.  He was competitive in the first round then completely outclassed across all three judges' scorecards in the second round, 10-8. Does this mean he had already lost the fight? Of course, not. But the round apparently killed his self-confidence in that match. If a fighter says they're done, then they're done. I'm not sure how one can rationalize it's better to go out in the cage and take more damage. This isn't wrestling. He isn't risking just being controlled on his own back for a few moments; he's risking getting KTFO'd or submitted--and I assume most casual MMA fans have seen some gruesome KO's and submissions. 
     
    From White's quote, I presume he wholeheartedly agrees. There's nothing wrong with calling it quits. I guess Max may have lost the supposed fanaticism from a lot of "tough" guy posters who would have rather seen Max continue to get pummeled for another 5 minutes. FYI, a 10-8 round is quite the beating. 
     
    Max took the fight to compete. He was done competing. It takes a lot of humility to admit defeat. Kudos to Max for putting his pride aside. Live to fight another day or walk away from the sport completely. Both are fine options.

    I actually felt White was very understanding and NOT critical of Rohskopf; White's usually not one to get too bogged down in empathy but he extended it to the fighter.  I didn't get the impression UFC was ditching Rohskopf and inferred White was talking specifically about this one bout and not Rohskopf's future with his organization.  I guess we'll see.

    Like it.  When I was on the board of the NWCA back in the 90s I pushed this.  Use the first semester to get the young guys acclimated to college study demands, conditioning, etc.  Second semester, begin with competition, take advantage of the warm weather for weight management, everyone who is academically eligible to start will be eligible for the end, avoid media competition with b-ball's March Madness, championship in late April, still almost two months afterwards to focus on grades without the stress of travel and competing.

    HORRID I SAY!  Banish any such rubbish from all wrestling media sources!  Just the lamestream media pushing its agenda!  And no more garbage about wrestlers disarming criminals, overcoming cancer, being born without limbs, beating poverty and the loss of loved ones!  I want box scores!  Just the facts!  Who scored how many takedowns and the time of the fall only!

    Taylor Miller’s story on Jenna absolutely 100 percent has ZERO to do with politics and logical readers trying to find a political statement there can’t - it’s a human interest story about one of our World Teamers.

    You aren’t interested - fine. Don’t make up political spin where there isn’t. Was my story on Mike Pucillo coming out gay a few years ago on The Open Mat political?

    Nope. It’s a story about people. PEOPLE, not politics.

    Relevant story during Pride Month. 
    Read the room. 
    Jenna's an awesome person and has represented us on the World stage since she was a kid. It's relevant to wrestling because she's a Youth Olympic Games alum, a Junior World teamer, a Senior World Teamer. I've done a lot of features and asked questions to wrestlers about their off-the-mat lives, ranging from collecting atari games, to being a mother and competing, painting shoes, building businesses.

    Not that usual for them to cover national wrestler's personal stories. Her orientation is probably a big part of her life story. Personally I did not read it, as I have very little interest in athletes outside of their athletic accomplishments. You are free to ignore it if it bothers you
