  1. You know, if Burroughs said he believes it's more difficult to win now because all the Russians who used to sit behind each other are now spread out amongst multiple nations, he would share a popular view of many wrestling fans and not come off as egomaniacal at all. Why is Ted Williams a douchebag for sharing his opinion about hitting a baseball? He has a point...if you can hit safely 3 out of 10 times you are an all-star. What other activity in sports celebrates such a low success rate. Why?, because it is in fact, really difficult. Please tell whoever pissed in your Cheerios not to do it anymore.
  2. I'm a huge Mizzou honk, but man I wish J-Den Cox could find a way into that Ohio State room for the next two or three years (provided Snyder stays after this next year).
  3. Burroughs conditioning was amazing. Consistently won the second period the entire tournament. Got down early multiple times against the best in the world and just kept making his way back. Much respect.
  4. Damn, now wishing Lee or Fix had gone to PSU...JK...and "these are the Days of Our Lives".
  5. Scrambling is a different animal in free. Fix might not concede those td's without a little more "rolling around" in folk. Who knows though.
  6. This is great. We need to have some of those senior guys squirming in their seats. This is kind of a joke, but on top of these great juniors, think about how young Gilman, Retherford, Cox, and Snyder are. Even Gwiz is young. It's going to be a battle like never before to make our teams. At 57 alone you have Lee, Fix, Nato and Gilman all early 20's or younger.
  7. Does anyone care if they get along with you? Lol
  8. Is Gilman not at the World Team Camp? Didn't see him in any of the photos.
  9. It won't be akward. He will just give a Louden Swain speech about wrestling being an individual sport and climb the peg board and all will be fine.
  10. Pendleton is like the rug to the Dude's aparment. He ties the story together so nicely, man. I mean you can't talk Askren without Pendelton...and vice versa, man.
  11. New question. Is BigTimeFanBoy's desire to get Bigmik to admit he just wants to be right about everything greater than Bigmik's desire to be right about everything? Both have shown great resolve. BTFB has been tireless in his assertion that Bigmik's posts are self serving attempts to discredit a foe, yet Bigmik' has thus far refused to crack insisting his motives are legitimate curiosity. Funny thing to me is that over the final two years of a career, if you replace Pendelton's name with Askren's you have a real debate. Knowing how much Askren struggled with Pendelton adds a nice bit of irony.
  12. This just in...Cael to replace Brands at Iowa...record deal about to be signed!
  13. First time I've seen the punch. Funny thing is, Picos punch lands simultaneously and actually looks pretty good too...just not good enough. Margin for error is so small.
  14. this thing sells itself...love the bluetooth...like he's taking orders during the infomercial. LOL!
  15. Did you see what he looked like at his weigh in for 155 for Bellator? Also said 145 would be no problem in an interview, but wanted to concentrate on his development, not his weight for his first fight. I think weight would not be an issue.
  16. Getting people on this forum to admit they have no experience in what they are clearly experts about is fruitless. Either that, or they are all high level athletes and high level officials, while we are at it, and feel no need to dignify your question with a response.
  17. If he gets his gut, it's over. Hope Snyder can avoid it.
  18. Backed into Olympic bronze? Some people are so disrespectful it's just nbelievable. Your dude lost. Deal!
  19. It's too bad this guy has such an array of baggage. Talented guy who's fun to watch. If it was just cockiness or him spouting off as some bizarre social media persona, people would write it off as just being colorful. Unfortunately his past is real and isn't going anywhere. Unfortunate.
