  1. This might be the exception that proves your point, but Tsargush was dangerous from this position. Burroughs basically tried to bail out when he locked it up. (BTW I hate me some Tsargush) @ 1:20, 6:45, 7:45, 8:15 here: @ 3:40 and other places here: @ :57, 11:17 here: @ 3:15 here:
  2. Slightly different techniques. Slay used an outside step.
  3. No difference. I contradict myself. I am large; I contain multitudes.
  4. I agree. I argued about this with russelscout a couple of weeks ago re Marinelli's spiral ride. One particular technique that really bugs me and that usually gets the bottom guy dinged is when the top guys flattens the bottom man out, sinks the tight waist, and pushes the near elbow away with a v-block. The top guy looks active because his butt is in the air and he is driving the guy into the mat (laces up!). The bottom guy can't do jack. The best example was Borshel's ride on Henrich in the semis
  5. I don't necessarily agree with this argument, but here it goes: you can wrestle agressively but not take a commited shot. You can stalk your opponent, wrestle with your hands, create angles, and keep him flinching until he breaks his position. Then you score. This strategy might take several minutes to work.
  6. Best example ( ... err, to be fair, you just described the orange-tinted-deluded(?)-pov of every cowboy fan ever (like me) when they watch a match @ CHA . . .) https://www.flowrestling.org/video/5088617-no-1-coleman-scott-osu-dec-no-2-joe-slaton-iowa-8-6
  7. Please, please post a link to the "athlete" rubric used to make this assessment.
  8. It's the Brent-Metcalf- keep -wrestling- til you -hear- the -final- whistle approach to an inevitable loss.
  9. Yeah, it has happened before at OSU (see the story about Newby below) but maybe this happens everywhere. It certainly played an outsized role in the tragic, slow-motion collapse of my career. https://www.google.com/amp/s/oklahoman.com/article/2488065/osus-newby-unhappy-will-transfer-to-ou/amp
  10. Come on. We are all thinking about it. Let's just do it. Derail this topic and drop some science on the current goings-on in Washington.
  11. I agree. Steve Garland once gave me a great piece of coaching advice. He said (and I'm paraphrasing) "Never talk bad about your team in public. Always talk them up. Level with them in private." Further, singling guys out -- even if it's just in the practice room -- is pretty dangerous. Obviously, Dresser's resume justifies about anything he wants to do, but he seems angry here. I'm not sure if this was a calculated attempt to light a fire under their asses or just lashing out.
  12. Everyone one knew this man, so it gives us an opportunity to see how all of us react to the death of another human being. Mass media predictably gves its audience what it wants; they are in the $ business. Social media exposes how folks react at a granual level. My conclusion: the anonymity of the internet bred callousness; then, we became so callous that we didn't care about remaining anonymous; so, we post callous sh*t under our own name. It should be noted that callousness can be dressed up as "thoughts and prayers." Offering condolences to whomever for the death of a man that you only knew as an idea is just as callous as calling him a rapist moments after he, his daughter, and the "less note-worthy" died in one of the most horrific ways imaginable.
