  1. The Olympic 97 weight would be awesome though. J'Den is an excellent vocalist.
  2. 14 pages and their are probably a dozen people who actually know what happened and none are on this forum. I am personally mad because we all waited so long to see Cox and Snyder go at it and now that is not happening. If the Twitter guy is right. 10-15 minutes late is going to be a tough argument. It's not like you can say the weigh in officials watch was fast.
  3. I have to go with Gable, if for no other reason, because Paris knew he was coming and trying to get the major and still couldn't stop it. Gable was basically saying here I come, good luck. A man that size shouldn't be able to wrestle like that. He looks like a lightweight.
  4. I not only grew up...then I got old...that really sucks.
  5. He probably is. He is just down a weight so he can't be a returning champion at his weight.
  6. Mizzou has gone with the less is more philosophy recently. Only backups and redshirts typically compete in opens and they no longer go to a big midseason tourney (Scuffle, Midlands). They do go to the dual event in Florida, but even this event is in keeping with their strategy. They can use backups when needed and the 6 or 7 match wrestleback grinder isn't in play. Overall, they wrestle mostly a dual schedule within the MAC with some tough out of conference opponents mixed in. Is it working? Hard to say. They have been successful for a pretty long time now, so results are up to interpretation. As a fan, I loved seeing how they matched up in the big midseason events, but it's hard to question Brian Smith's judgment at this point. Dude has proven he might have a clue.
  7. I was thinking "Sidewalk Slam", but yes the "Rock Bottom" is more appropriate.
  8. My Cox point is probably not a great one. Smith has known him for so long it's hard to imagine J'den not wanting them to use it. I guess a better way to say it is I would have a hard time seeing most of our top flight guys who are now at different RTC"s (Cox, Snyder, JO) getting bent because their college used some old footage of them to tell the story of a dual that happened while they were there. Just Gilman. But as I said in my post, I think it's by design. He seems to thrive on the controversy.
  9. Yep, much ado about nothing. Gilman loves playing the heel. Think of it as marketing people. As long as his name is in your mouth, mission accomplished. Honestly, think about how badly people are gonna want to see him and Spencer go at it. As an aside, I have no problem with Iowa using this. It's an interesting tidbit about a dual involving the college team and Gilman, not the RTC. It only seems a bit wierd because of how his departure went down and where he went. Would anyone have a problem with Mizzou using an interview or footage of J'den Cox to promote their team.
  10. Flo is reporting JB vs Taylor on January 9th. 86kg. Jordan Burroughs & David Taylor To Meet January 9 Live On FloWrestling Dec 10, 2020Kyle Bratke After two months of going back and forth on social media, it's finally happening. Jordan Burroughs and David Taylor will meet on January 9, 2021, exclusively on FloWrestling at 86kg.
  11. I gotta go with at least a 1/10. Equivalent to a shot clock violation. I had a brief silent chuckle, so maybe 2/10. Haven't heard from Khuzin much lately, so I don't want to discourage him. Besides apparently he loves you.
  12. I think Yianni is our best chance to qualify the weight. Most dynamic offense and defense. Good tank. Interesting to see if he can win our qualifier. With a spot in the Olympic Games on the line, I hope he is our rep.
  13. In the mean time, I come away thinking, as a result of seeing this exhibition, our best chance to qualify 65 kg is if Yianni D is our rep. Call it a hunch.
  14. SERTC/Virginia tech sent out a presser yesterday promoting several things including the RTC cup and had 65kg next to James Green's name. I found that interesting. I think he's trying to shrink for OTT. Does anyone know if he has acknowledged or denied this?
  15. When did America decide we shouldn't be fun anymore? I know when work is over on Friday, the only thing I can think of is two good days of pragmatic behavior.
  16. We already have serious issues at the weight. I believe it's the only one we haven't qualified. Hope whoever comes out of this weight can get it qualified a la J'Den 4 years ago.
  17. Considering who is 1 and 2, I'd say his chance is similar to Lloyd Christmas' in Dumb and Dumber..."so you're saying there's a chance?" LOL.
  18. Would Green try to make 65 for the Oly Trials? Honestly, he has no chance at 74. If so this could be a test weight cut of sorts. He makes 150 to see how he feels there and then makes up his mind.
  19. Pretty sure Tom Brands placed his Freshman year. 4th maybe. I think he lost to Jim Martin (PSU) for third.
  20. In the Lunch Bunch-Out of the tournament by lunch. 2 and Q could be short for 2 and BBQ or we used to say it when someone went 0-2 at the State Tournament. 2 matches and your a Qualifier.
  21. Wasn't Cox a double digit seed at the trials? Amazing run.
  22. They still have a Russian National tournament. Just wondering if we were Russia, if Cox's, Molinaro's, or Dennis' win would've been enough to earn the spot. Interesting to think about. We don't have the proven guys, so maybe.
