    gobraves101905 got a reaction from PSUMike in Hodge Contenders   
    Zahid can win every match from here on out by one point. Fact is, if he gets title #3 this year with an undefeated season, he is the Hodge winner. Three timers don’t grow on trees. He will be rewarded for that.

    He was 2nd on the ladder in 2018 and 3rd in 2019.  The people he has lost to are Dake, who is a 2X world champion, and Ringer has won many international tournaments.  Zahid is also significantly younger than both of them.  I'm not saying he's going to win an olympic gold medal, but those are outstanding results for somebody still in college, and I think he has established that his ceiling is olympic/world gold.

    I was at the ASU-Penn State dual where 8500 fans showed up. Multiple Junior and Senior High School wrestling teams in attendance, fathers & mothers brought their kids, lots of grandparents also. Don't see that happening tomorrow once they get hit with the prices......Come on D'backs and ASU, this is not the way to grow interest in wrestling.
    BTW, we paid $138.00 for all three days for the NCAA's in Minneapolis.
    Is getting greedy pro sports involved necessary?

    Traveled from So-Cal for this event to attend with my son and grandkids.
    Ticket were advertised at $30.00 for both sessions via ASU. Online with D-Back's ticket concessions they are $38.00.
    I went to ASU and was informed that all tickets are only being sold via D-Back's. Drove to Chase Field.
    All tickets are general admission-first come seating. No Senior or student discounts.
    4 Tickets cost me $48.75 each........that's $195.00 
    The ticket seller didn't even want to discuss or explain......I was asked "do you want the tickets or not"......forgot to ask how much the parking charge will be.
    Next time ASU.....keep the duals on campus.

    I was there and it was an incredible event.  ASU did a great job promoting it, the arena was more packed for this than it was when I graduated from ASU.  The Penn State fans were scattered around, I know there were a few sitting behind me.  One thing I thought was great and this might have been sort of accidentally on purpose was Bubba J sitting matside in full view of Cael all night.  He was being a very enthusiastic fan and was very happy with the outcome.  ASU has a definite hole at 141, but other than that their lineup is pretty solid up and down.  I was telling the people around me to watch for Teemer because he has such great body awareness. He just seems to know where to go from any position and moves effortlessly.  I heard somebody saying he was faster and a better athlete and I told them that pretty much everybody at this level is fast and a good athlete, what sets him apart is his "feel" for wrestling.  Norfleet just housed Conel.  After the bull rush in the first 30 seconds, Conel had nothing for Norfleet who seemed like he was a step ahead the whole time.  It was good for Norfleet to wrestle from the ties where Conel can be dangerous, and he even beat him in  those positions with that knee pick in the 3rd.  ASU came out to wrestle and I think in all but 2 matches scored first.  Disappointed that Shakur didn't wrestle, but I felt like at the time that Cael didn't want to have momentum swing back to ASU after Hall majored Valencia, and Zahid putting on a scoring display against Shakur would have done that. Instead he gambled that Conel would get it done against a guy who hasn't wrestled a college match in a year and moving up a weight.  Lots of boos for the forfeit, but I think once Cael realized that Norfleet was that good and ready he knew things were in jeopardy.  
    Overall it was a great event and ASU did a great job trying to fill the arena.  There were people sitting in the upper deck which up until a few years ago didn't even happen for ASU basketball.  I remember going to a game vs Harvard 4 years ago and the place was maybe 1/4 full.  Great atmosphere for a dual meet and if any recruits were watching or present, they'll see that there's a community and fans who will come and watch.  Looking forward to the next home duals in January.

    Well, eat crow on othis one... big time.
    Congratulations to ASU. Their win is good for the Sport.
    Still think Penn State takes the top spot this year. This loss has to wake up a few who spent more time reading press clippings than drilling in the room.
    WHERE are the bonus point hammers? Without some stepping up they lose a lot of points come tournament time.
    Good luck to both programs moving forward.

    You should give credit where credit is due. In a competitive dual, ASU won the only upset, which was the difference. Would you not give ASU credit for winning ncaas if Shakur Rasheed is injured at Big10s and can’t go to ncaas? That’s part of the sport  
    125 - ASU majored PSU in a tossup
    133 - ASU lost 7-6 in a match where they were a huge underdog 
    149 - ASU wins another toss up
     
    165 - ASU held PSU to a decision
    174 - ASU got the first takedown and made it a match
    184 - not counting this as a win is disingenuous. PSU didn’t send someone out vs the #1 p4p guy, so ASU doesn’t get credit?
    197 - ASU wins a huge upset over a former AA with an in ranked guy who hasn’t competed in a year and a half
    285 - ASU gets the only takedown in Cassar since Gable Steveson. Gable May be the only person ther guy to take him down in a long time. 
     
    By the way, 3 of the 4 wins were against PSU starters, so that is just a bad argument. Plus Pipher isn’t a scrub.

    ASU handled this one start to finish. What a performance. Aggressive every minute of the dual  
    After Ceasar almost pinned him in the first, he did nothing the rest of the match. Penn State looked like the moment was too big. It was weird.

    Kordell is probably better off to redshirt this season because of his injury.  He's not beating Zahid at 184 and 197 might be too big of a jump in weight.

    That is the biggest cop out and misconception in wrestling. Who is pushing Zahid in Tempe?  He is leaps and bounds better than anyone in the room. He is also 1000% times better than when he arrived in Tempe. If you don’t have it inside on your own,  nobody is going to get it for you. There are coaches in any of these rooms that can help get you there
