  1. I would have been rooting for Moore, but 85% is absurd. Being the best at the weight, and knowing you were already the best at the weight, in a prior year, and didn't win makes for a hell of a lot of pressure. When thinking about Moore's chances before the tournament was cancelled, my mind kept seeing parallels with Robert Kokesh. Maybe 60%
  2. Sure it was a typo but Kellen went to Michigan

  4. If you know who the better wrestler is, don't hold the wrestle-off! If you don't know, a wrestle-off is probably the worst way to find out. Strange results often occur in wrestle-offs between guys who work out with each other everyday-by strange I mean results that are inconsistent with how the guys tend do against outside competition. Use opens etc. to find out.
  5. READ MY LIPS, I HAVE NO AFFILITATION WITH FLO- ZERO- NONE!!!!
  6. I just went on Trackwrestling.com to order coverage of the Multidivisional National Duals (which does not include D1 teams). The price is $19.95- more than a whole month of premium service on FLO. Fair enough... no one is forced to buy anything, but this really puts the great value FLO Pro represents in context. BTW, I have no affiliation with FLO- just calling it like I see it!!
  7. Confusing Kyle's folk style and freestyle careers could be the only basis for even suggesting this comparison. While Kyle is a freestyle legend, his collegiate career has been spectacular, but also strained by the demands of his year round worldwide freestyle schedule. Obviously, these problems were exacerbated by his need to weigh in for freestyle at 213 while wrestling folkstyle at 285. While Kyle had a great win over Gwiz in '16 and an impressive run through the NCAA tournament last year, he never carried anything like the air of invincibility, at the collegiate level, that Gable brought into the 1970 NCAA Tournament. Remember, Kyle also had had the hiccup against Gadson in the 2015 finals. By March 1970, Gable had been mauling and pinning guys for three years without even the hint of a stumble. As far as the Coon-Snyder match goes, there were fans who saw this coming, and many, many people who felt the weight differential at least created a question mark. In 1970, nobody but Larry Owings, saw a question mark! Anyway, hopefully Tom Ryan and Co. can get Kyle ready to go out with a win (or two) that would really put an exclamation point on his college career!
