    There it is. I hope it doesn't end on another stall call :shock:

    Hes definitely gonna get hit with at least 1 stall point. Ut Ohhhh
  5. Ill eat crow on that...I said there was NO WAY McD doesn't get on the podium. WOW :shock:
  6. How do you stop them? Seriously...unreal finisher and lightening quick.
  7. 125: Nico vs Delgado 133: Steiber vs Ramos 141: Steiber vs Maple 149: Oliver vs Chamberlain 157: Welch vs St John 165: 99.899% Dake vs Taylor (maybe one of them will get sick or injured - hope not) 174: Perry vs Storley 184: Ruth vs Hamlin 197: Kilgore vs Q 285: Bradley vs Z WInners bolded.
  8. I'm gonna borrow a few I've had to suffer the past 3 matches between these two this year. 3 matches? So if Taylor wins you are going to say that it was a freestyle win - and that doesn't translate into folkstyle!? :D
  9. Although I do see that what I said was a little sloppily worded...I meant to say "to be going for 4 for 4" as opposed to saying "to go 4 for 4" (which there are only two)..but the intention I think was still very clear.

    Taylor

    Agreed. I can't wait until tomorrow night.

    Taylor

    Well first, an unseeded guy will not win 174. It will be a guy who was ranked top 5 all year long. But if an unseeded guy did, sure that is impressive. Is it more impressive than if Taylor pinned his way to the finals and beat Dake? I say not really...but that is a personal opinion. Secondly, so just because you expect Taylor to destroy people, he doesn't deserve the award designed to recognize that? That doesn't make sense. And no - I didn't expect him to pin or TF his way all the way to the finals. This is the NCAA tournament - these kids are all tough as nails (even in relatively weak brackets). That is why last year what he did was so impressive - and why what he is doing so far this year is so impressive.
  12. Uhhh, did I miss a major change in the way National Team Champions are decided next year going forward?

    Taylor

    I think whoever wins that final will be OW period. No matter how easily the win comes to them.. PSU fan here and pulling for TAYLOR all the way,but my vote would have to go to the winner of the toughest bracket,not who mows thru sub-par competition. 174 champ gets my nod. The OW is not the "winner of the toughest bracket" award. It is the most outstanding/impressive performance of the tournament. If Taylor wins with 4 pins and a dec, and Chris Perry wins with 5 decisions - Taylor get the OW over Perry hands down - even though Perry had a tougher bracket (although the Finals win for Taylor or Dake is much tougher than anyone at 174).
  14. I think you have problems with you mental capacity - specifically your reading comprehension. I was not excluding anybody - only pointing out that the only two people to ever do anything like "cleaning his clock" in his career were Robles and Delgado - and that it certainly did not happen in the match he just lost (in OT) Hmm, you are right - what was I thinking! I can't think of a single example of a guy getting beaten badly before nationals and then making the finals! That is impossible!! :roll:
  15. What difference does it make if you're an Iowa fan or not? I'm not an Iowa fan either. All you're doing is projecting that you can't be unbiased if you're a fan of them. That's about par for the course around here. No one asked for your input on who is crazy and it turns out not so crazy after all. He's been had his clock cleaned several times in the last few weeks and clearly is no longer the cream of the class. You can't see that, fine, live in the past and keep riding his finals appearances. From all accounts, a nice kid, a bit immature, but certainly not a bad guy. Again, I was wondering if he was going to sit in the trash can the rest of the tournament since less than first is unacceptable. If you don't know the answer, fine, but stop whining already . Can you not follow a conversation/argument that you yourself started? You are still making it seem as if I was picking him to win the tournament - I wasn't. I was simply stating that he was certainly in the mix in response to earlier in the thread people saying (you included I believe, I just dont care to check) he was not. The fact that he now lost does not validate your/others opinion of him having no chance to win coming into the tournament. Is that really so hard to understand? And cocked cleaned? :lol: He lost in OT in the quarter finals at the NCAAs. Aside from Delgado and Robles - he has never had his clock cleaned.
  16. What am I eating crow about? Did I predict him to win? No. I said that going into the tournament he can not be counted out, period. And if you did give him (the guy who was a 3 time finalist and 2 time champ) no chance coming into the tournament - you are crazy. End of my opinion on this matter. You turn that around when he loses and make it seem as if I said something along the lines of "He is going to win, if you dont think so you are crazy". Im not sure if this is just a misinterpretation of what I actually said - or a deliberate misrepresentation by you. (Im leaning towards the latter). And yes, it is about class - you are showing none. And btw - in case you are not all that familiar with me - I am far from an Iowa supporter.
  17. Can you count him out now? And did he end up in diving in the trash can, being he'll finish MUCH lower than what's acceptable to him? Yes you can count him out now, because he's already lost. And he lost in OT - so the point is still extremely valid that if you gave him no chance coming into the tournament - you were just crazy. And again with the bashing? Classy to go after a guy (on an anonymous message board no less) that has been a 3 time finalist and 2 time champ because he lost in the quarters his senior year. Classy all the way! :roll:
  18. :lol: I was watching the espn3 feed so I could watch all 4 matches...I wish for the sake of the interviews I could have watched ESPNU too!
  19. Well, they are already pointed at the center mat - so to send someone all the way over there to reposition them, and turn them back on - ehh its a lot of work!
  20. I don't care who wins, but I hope it's a clean match with no controversy. I'd hate to have to hear how the refs decided it, etc. My guess is Dake wins it. Taylor looks like Godzilla running through this tournament right now. I fell awful for Yates tonight in the semis - he may need a miracle to even stand a chance. He is determined to get to Dake - when all bets will be off because, it goes without saying, Dake is far above the rest of the field.
  21. I think it is being used entirely too much though. Like I said I like the idea of a coach having limited challenges to use in key spots - but officials reviews leave anything open to review and slows down the match - potentially in a spot where the coach wouldn't even question the call. If the call is that questionable - make the coach use a review, period.
  22. Agree. Coach's review/challenge is one thing - to protest what you think is a bad call in a key spot. But the refs continually stopping to review every close call for 1-2 mins is ridiculous. Takes the matches momentum away completely...and it is unnecessary.

    Tony Ramos

    We can talk about what is/isn't real (and how to not strawman what someone is saying) on a politics discussion board. This is for wrestling discussion. Back to the topic - Ramos is a total thug with his extra-curricular behavior (shoving, yelling, etc) on the mat - not because of his skin color or ethnicity - because of his behavior, on multiple occasions.

    Tony Ramos

    What are you trying to say, and in which language are you trying to say it in? :lol: Lets not get political, because you will be doing the same thing he is doing. I am a liberal when it comes to politics - and I dont share anything this guy is saying in this thread. So lets not start a debate on rich people and job creators and welfare and tax code issues and entitlements etc,etc,etc It is a wrestling forum - stop letting this guy troll so efficiently.
