    Joseph just got dominated

    The difference in the match was a 6 point move by Marinelli. Not exactly "domination".

    Joseph:IMAR :: Marinelli:Joseph

    I wouldn't bet the farm on that, if I were you.

    Joseph:IMAR :: Marinelli:Joseph

    Doesn't Joseph own a couple wins over Marinelli?
  4. I haven't seen the match, but losing to Cassar has certainly taken the shine of Steveson's "greatness". Hopefully I can watch it tonight.

    Smith lays an egg

    There's no guarantee of that.

    FloWrestling Keep up The Great Work!

    I'm glad you are enjoying the site, Marcus. If it brings you joy, go for it. I'm not one of the FLO naysayers on this forum, generally, but my patience with them has worn thin as of late.

    Minnesota with more in the semis than Iowa?

    Hawkeye fans seem to always jump up to defend the Brands boys, but even the hardcore folks have got to see their once proud program declining. Frankly I'm surprised Tom Brands has lasted as long as he has, especially with the program in obvious decline. It's got to be super annoying for the spoiled Hawkeye fans who came to the sport during Gable's reign of terror as a coach.

    Nick Suriano “I Don’t Back Down To Nobody”

    Wow, pretty cocky for a guy that's about 5'5" and 125 pounds. I bet my 12 year old nephew would bend him into a pretzel. Kudos on beating DeSanto though.

    FloWrestling Keep up The Great Work!

    FLO provides, maybe, 1/1000th of the content of Amazon prime, and at a higher cost than Amazon. I've tolerated it for awhile, but after NCAAs my "membership" on FLO will be canceled in rapid order. Why? 1) Excessive cost for the tiny amount of "product" delivered. How many OSU matches did I get to watch this year courtesy of my FLO subscription? Answer: fewer than I saw on youtube, for free. Plus wrestling season is only 4 months (and a fraction) long. Why am I paying $159 a YEAR for a sport that's only 1/3 of the year? 2) technical incompetence - FLO is notorious for the spotty quality of their streaming, but there is no excuse for camera men who ignore action on the mat, like happened in the Joseph/Massa match. 3) FLO isn't a "wrestling" enterprise. It's a SPORTS enterprise with many other sports covered. Hence, wrestling is "just another dollar sign" to the powers that be at FLO. 4) FLO is aware of the streaming issue, the lack of content issue, and the discontent over the price. What have they done to address those issues? NOTHING...NOTHING AT ALL. But they keep pocketing our money.

    You think it's "fun" to watch?

    Don't know. But here's another question: why bother having to wrestle for 9th place? There are only 8 AA slots, so how about nobody who finishes lower than 8th qualifying?

    Now THAT is world class snark.

    Smith lays an egg

    Oh, looks like Joe Smith qualified for NCAAs. He's in the Conso semifinals, so the worst he can finish is 6th. Big 12 has 6 qualifiers at 165 pounds. Shocking the Big 12 has only 1 157 pound slot allocated.

    Smith lays an egg

    Alright, a serious question: why do people use the term "laid an egg" as an INSULT? If Joe Smith, or John Smith, actually LAID AN EGG it would be nothing less than miraculous. I wouldn't want to eat that egg, but that's beside the point.

    Cassar looked a lot BETTER than Steveson. Against a vastly inferior opponent to Steveson, granted. I can't wait to see what happens between those guys. Got Steveson, 5-3.

    Warner prefers to not wrestle

    It's amazing what good stalling "technique" can accomplish.

    They are steadily improving under Eggum. Leggo my Eggum!!

    I'd be ashamed of myself if I was a heavy and got hammered by a pumped up 190 pounder. Cassar is pretty good, but still it's got to be embarrassing.

    That's what gave me an unfair advantage when I was a wrestler! I was the only 101 pounder in the state that could benchpress 300 pounds!

    What a coincidence, Tripod is my nickname as well. For something totally unrelated to cameras, however
