  1. As others have mentioned, I would give the slight nod to Taylor at this point because the Olympic Gold is the highest level in the sport. But I don’t think it automatically trumps everything. For example, would you put a one time Olympic gold medalists but zero time world medalist higher than someone like Adeline Gray? I would not. It is close between Dake and Taylor even if you look at only international results. I believe in wrestling you have to look NCAA results too because that is the pinnacle of folkstyle wrestling. Folkstyle is way more popular in this country, and I guarantee you that more Americans watched the NCAAs than the Olympics for wrestling. Like it or not, popularity has a big impact on the level of prestige for the accomplishment. This is the reason why Olympic gold outweighs world gold… otherwise they are the same and Dake clearly would have the nod. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  2. Really? Do you think all God cares about is NCAA titles? Or that because he didn’t win an NCAA title, his God must not be real? If that is your stance, sorry but you lose all credibility. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  3. You have to consider the competition as a huge factor here. Assuming rumors are true that Sadulaev is going and many others are not… Dake and JB have to be the top two by far. I’d have it: 1. Dake 2. JB 3. Cox 4. Taylor 5. Gilman 6. Green 7. Yianni 8. Snyder (assuming Sadulaev is in) 9. Fix 10. Gwiz If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  4. I think that’s a good analysis. I remember previous interviews where interviewers would say something along the lines of wow that was some incredible defense! And Yianni would reply yeah but I need to not let them in on the legs in the first place. So I do think that was a focus area for him, and he definitely improved there. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  5. I agree the team is pretty impressive. We legitimately have a medal shot at all 10 weights. I can’t remember another time that was the case. Of course, everything would have to go right to actually get medals in all ten weights, but 7-8 medals and 3-4 gold would not surprise me. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  6. Wow Burroughs is amazing! I think he looks great at this weight… any step he appeared to have lost may have been due to cutting so hard for 74? Just a theory, but I do think he’s going to add another world gold to his collection If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  7. Moore looked as impressive as possible in a 5-0 loss If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  8. Looking at at it now, if NATO beats Fix, we wouldn’t be too surprised. But if anyone would have picked NATO to win the whole thing from the beginning, we would’ve thought they were crazy. So if he wins, I’d say he’d be the biggest surprise. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  9. No problem… took me a while to figure out too lol If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  10. Turn the iPad vertical. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  11. I would imagine it’s the most popular sport in the Dagestan region. Probably in regions of some other countries that have been mentioned. Not sure if it would be the most popular of an entire country? Mongolia may be the answer to that. It seems like there would be several where it is only second to soccer. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  12. I think that’s a little harder to see plus what about when someone has a leg up in a single and walks them out? I agree 2 step outs should not equal a takedown and technically it does not. With criteria, a takedown is still above 2 step outs. I think needing 4 step outs (or 5 with the original half point suggestion) to overcome a takedown is a bit much. But yes, that’s just a matter of opinion. A 3 point takedown could work. I think you’d have to do 3 points for exposure too and then 5 or 6 for feet to back. Obviously tech falls need to increase too. I don’t think it’s worth it for basically a trial and error. Plus, we’d all have to break the habit of yelling TWOOOOOO!!! Lol If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  13. I think Burroughs is going to win 79 somewhat decisively. I actually think we will see a better version of him at this weight. He looked good wrestling Taylor at 86 despite being undersized. I’m thinking not cutting as hard may help him get back the edge he always with his explosiveness and being able still have an insane sprint at the end. Maybe wishful thinking since I’m a big fan of his, but it makes sense to me haha I’ll pick 1. JB 2. Nolf 3. Ringer If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  14. That part made me LOL But I would like to add that Bo isn’t more special than Gable or Cejudo or Cael or some others who decided to move on in their prime. I do agree it’s a stinks from a fan perspective though. If I need to know anything about wrestling or sports, I ask@ShakaAloha because he knows more than me.
  15. I think sometimes the call looks bad because the ref blew the whistle early (although that is in itself a bad call). After the whistle is blown there’s no continuation. Sometimes we can’t hear that from tv though. I believe that was case of Stevesons potential 4 pointer that was not given… ref just stopped it too soon.
