  1. I believe Olympic Trials are all one weekend. Challenge tournament day 1 and best of three finals day 2. World medalists would sit in day 2 finals and wrestle winner of challenge tournament. There isn’t a separate best of three (like Final X) after the trials. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fix oly redhirt?

    I think the biggest issue is that Olympic Trials are April 4-5 2020 and NCAA championships are March 19-21. That is only a few weeks of separation. I would imagine anyone serious about the olympics would want to be 100% focused on that goal, peaking for the right time, avoiding injuries, etc. - hard to do with conference qualifiers and NCAA tourney just a few weeks beforehand in a different style.

    World Team Trials - Day 1

    Not final x but they do have the pre-final x format where someone sits in the 2 of 3 finals and there is a challenge tournament to determine the other finals participant. Arujau won the challenge tournament. Now he’s in the best of 3 finals vs Heinselman. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ROTC and Wrestling in College

    AA Carl Keske Cornell '97 (RIP) did Army ROTC. https://www.bellevuehalloffame.com/carl-keske.html https://cornellbigred.com/hof.aspx?hof=478&mobile=skip It's a pretty intense commitment to do both.

    Singlets at this year's tournament

    I hope even when wrestling an opponent with red singlets they always give Chad the red ankle bands. Otherwise pretty confusing to hear "Two - Red" when the other guy gets a takedown.

    NCAA Session 1 Thread

    If you want a decent seed you actually have to wrestle the weight during the season. And get better than 5th at your conference tournament.

    Maryland Coach 2019/2020

    Guessing he is a little more focused on Tokyo 2020 than salvaging a college program.
  10. Perhaps... or could focus 100% on greco for 2020. I have to think that making an Olympic team would be a bigger draw than trying to be a 2x AA.

    Gabe Dean - all time?

    Probably but why would he? The Cornell football team is usually bad even for the Ivy League. And the wrestling thing seemed to work out pretty well for him.

    Your favorite wrestler who never won it all

    +1 for Lewnes. 4x EIWA champ, 2x entered NCAAs as the undefeated #1 seed, has some sort of illness to go 0-2 as sophomore #1 seed and falls to Borschel in finals as a junior. Then as a senior runs into a pretty good freshman by the name of Ed Ruth...

    So did Taylor finally beat Dake? ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. They were both cadet world champs in 2015 and met then (but were in different weight classes so didn't wrestle).
  15. I don't think until after weigh-ins. But final seeds are out: https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6189135-senior-mens-freestyle-seeds-released
