  1. Agree with this line of thinking, plus extra credit for using asymptote in a wrestling forum post
  2. Is it too much to ask to have wrestle backs shown? Some of us actually fill these out
  3. In what way did taylor improve his senior year? He stomped everyone he faced besides Dake both years. Matches with Caldwell were closer this year.
  4. But the hotel rooms are cheap and I'm sure it was easy to drive to the ! Everyone keeps telling me that's key to a good host site.
  5. Oh is that all? Other than being completely dominated head to head, he's better! Other than the fact that Burroughs is a gold medalist, Taylor's on top of him too. Taylor's terrific. I'd probably hold him in much higher esteem if I didn't have to listen to everyone here rationalize his performances. The performance stands on its own. Don't make him something he's not.
  6. Don't disagree but did I miss something?
  7. I wish Taylor had beaten Bubba so that he was 1,1,2,1 career 134-2 or whatever and the only losses were to Dake.
  8. If you pause the tv if looks like a takedown, but in the sequence there's no control "reaction time" rule or no
  9. Yep, he'll finish one of those sooner or later. This time I thought Delgado tied him up within reaction time. Makes me wonder how Delgado loses to Mega or anyone else, because Garrett on his feet is dynamite.
  10. As a Cornell fan he is incredibly frustrating. The reaction time to fight off such a freight train double is impressive though.
  11. Was pulling hard for Minne over psu but not at expense of Nelson winning without shooting (again). If ness pins and Taylor is just a dec psu still goes down.
  12. Heflin earned that loss. Where was that offense all match. Should be mandatory viewing for refs next year.
  13. Retherford aka Stieber which they somehow called him all match.
  14. Happy for them just bummed it had to come at the expense of Taffur.
  15. When you hit "garbage" moves on everyone they aren't garbage anymore. Like If you headlock returning champions and AAs them at some point you're just good enough to get away with it. What makes ness so good at this by the way? Is there some aspect of the technique that he does that no one else does?
  16. In other news, this should be a very good match. I want the fiery version of Villalonga from the 3rd period vs. Sueflohn.
  17. I like the field vs Ruth at +650.
  18. Pumped for MSG but bummed about no Philly. I know St. Louis is popular but I'm not sure why it needs to get every other year.
  19. Scribe I'm as big a cornell fan as you are but this is perhaps Cornell's best squad? Or best young squad? I like the young guns a lot so far, but hard pressed to say this is a better team than 2011 (2nd overall) or 2012 with 3 champs.
  20. Obligatory Disclaimer: Taylor is a fantastic wrestler and more exciting to watch than almost anyone. 100 bonus wins is a huge accomplishment, and he should be proud of it. There, got that off my chest... Humblebrag isn't a big deal folks. We all do it. I was just saying his post reads like, "I could never have gotten my huge promotion without all the support from my family!" I didn't know my latent insecurity was so transparent.
  21. Why do people think guys like Edgar and Faber would have a prayer against Steiber or Ramos? Why would they perform better than they did when concentrating fully on wrestling? Steiber v. Faber is a first period pin. Askren-Dake or Hendricks-Ruth would be fun though.
  22. Am I the only one that really likes this idea? Seems like it would build the suspense and perhaps make the tournament more exciting from a team perspective e.g. Can penn st score enough bonus to overcome their 3rd place duals finish? I guess I don't understand how this is a bad thing from a fan's perspective. Also, in this thread we've heard: a) you can't peak for such a long period of time and b) are the teams that don't make the dual tourney just supposed to sit around? Well it can't be both...by that logic the teams who don't make it are at an advantage because their wrestlers are training to peak while everyone else is knocking heads at the duals. PAC 12 tourney is almost 3 weeks before NCAAs and I haven't heard anyone clamoring for that to change.
