    GockeS reacted to Katie in Weird tweet from Burroughs   
    Personally I think Burroughs gets disrespected too much. He's already a top-5 US freestyler all time -- and he's still solidly in his prime -- but people have been acting like Dake and Taylor could do what he does. There is still no evidence they can. It would annoy me, too. 
     
    I also think he is extremely disciplined with his public persona. Compare his twitter feed to Askren's, for example.

    Straggler, that's not how I see it. Ref blows the whistle you can hear it at 5:33 of the link below. JB doesn't move till after the whilstle blows. But one second later at 5:34 he is on his knees with his right hand hooked onto Dake's right heel. If you stop it right at 5:34 you can see Dake is overextended and completely flat footed. JB's move was no doubt fast but happened after the whistle. And the reason he got the TD was because Dake was heavy on his right foot and JB snagged it.

    It's dumb luck for sure. I wonder how many could-have-been world champs never made the Russian world team.

    I noticed the same thing.  It reminded me of the old sheepdog and wolf cartoon where the rivalry is just another day at work.

    When the 174 crew was waiting to get on the podium and sitting in the chairs of honor I was watching them from afar.  I would've loved to have been sitting there listening to the conversation going on between Storley and Evans.  When they got off the podium the whole group was shaking hands, pats on the back, and etc. especially Evans.  After 4 years of wars and all the speculation....that was pretty cool to see.

    Kokesh vs Wilps match. Kokesh is in on 3 shots on the edge where Wilps does the splits and eventually gets too far off the mat (not via Kokesh but Wilps leaving the mat). This is either fleeing the mat or stalling. I would like to see a change here.

    I'll give props to Gilman.  Not a fan, but getting stuck last night and losing to Waters today.  Neither of those could have been very enjoyable, but he manned up and dealt with it.

    There was talk of Mizzou staying in the Big 12 just for wrestling, but the Big 12 powers that be said good riddance to them.  No sympathy here.

    I know of a different call on this same move (slamming Waters to his back, with legs in).....I didn't see it personally, but here's the scenerio.......Dave Schultz is doing a clinic near Columbus. Ohio.....and he is teaching legs to high school kids.....some really good ones were in attendance including Adam DiSabato and Rex Holman and more, and somebody in the group mentioned something to Dave, in terms of countering legs, and Dave said, "did you see that!  I moved up a weight to wrestle Ed Potokar (good with legs Ohio State vs. Oklahoma), and he threw the legs in, so I stood up.....the official just looked at us, so I said stalemate....the official said no, I said potentially dangerous, the official said no", so Dave did what Giliman did, and the official said...."YOU'RE OUTTA HERE"......Dave told the kids ...."I deserved it.....I was a jerk".   Dave Schultz is not a jerk, but take that story for what it's worth.....another story from Fadzaev's video library!!!!!

    After watching that GIF a couple of times, I'm reminded of the various posters on here who basically claimed that Waters maliciously shoved said Iowa backup with lethal force nearly to the ground, almost killing him...
