  1. It’s there but you can’t post.
  2. It seems like a better way to do it would have the non-olympic world champ in the 1 seed slot with byes to the semifinals. Then you draw the bracket normally for 2 through 7 seeds. If you want to go past 7 seeds, just skip 8 & 9 and put those people in where 10 and 11 would normally be drawn in. That way the 4/5 winner has to face the world champ and 2/3 wouldn't face the world champ until the finals of the challenge tournament.
  3. 74kg is already qualified (along with 97) so this example doesn't apply. There is a theoretical chance for 86kg though which hasn't qualified. So if Cox dropped to 86 and had a bye to the semis but someone else qualified the weight this situation would apply. Perhaps more interesting is who gets the nod at the Pan Am qualifier which is before OTT.

  8. Looks like Steveson took silver and Wood bronze at 125kg in addition to Graff's bronze today. I don't know the details but sounds like a rough outing for Steveson - lost 0-12.
  9. ESPN app or espn3.com. Search for “lucha libre” and you’ll see replays for each day. All in Spanish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. Seeds are out for Senior FS https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2019/May/17/WTTCT-MFS-seeds
  14. I believe it is tomorrow. edit: Flo says 1:30pm EDT Saturday https://www.flowrestling.org/results/6486526-2019-world-team-trials-challenge-tournament/26518
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Guessing he is a little more focused on Tokyo 2020 than salvaging a college program.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. +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...
  23. So did Taylor finally beat Dake? ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
