    Stl reacted to ptz305 in What was up with spencer Lee this year?   
    Lee was struggling after the Pokemon Go servers went down. This also marked the second straight winter in which they failed to update or upgrade the app. For a Pokemon trainer, the period of the last two years is generally referred to as "the long night."

    Stl got a reaction from Jaroslav Hasek in New Flo Rankings   
    My apologies, I missed the Dec 31 rankings that would have taken that match into account. I just thought it was one of the more significant recent 184 matches and was surprised to not see a blurb about it in the Jan 7 rankings (because not much else happened at 184 the past week). But obviously if it happened on 12/30 it would hit the 12/31 rankings, not 1/7.
     
    Always been a huge fan of Flo, keep up the good work!

    Stl got a reaction from Housebuye in Which individual wrestler has the toughest schedule this season?   
    Of Intermat's Top 20 Rankings, Eierman will see these guys in Mizzou's duals:
    1. Yianni
    5. Kaid Brock
    6. Sa'Derian Perry (pinned)
    7. Mike Carr (dec.)
    9. Josh Alber
    10. Bryan Lantry
    18. Nate Limmex
    Plus, he could wrestle the following guys at CKLV:
    1. Yianni
    2. Joey Mckenna
    8. Mitch McKee
    9. Josh Alber
    11. Chad Red
    15. Nicholas Gil
    17. Dom Demas
    18. Nate Limmex
    19. Kanen Storr
    20. Sam Krivus
     
    Probably not the most difficult but pretty darn tough. He could easily face every wrestler in the Top 10 aside from Nick Lee. I also hadn't thought ahead to Eierman and Kaid Brock's match until now, but that will be a barn burner, can't wait.

    Does it have to do with the last guys who won titles for their respective schools in their respective weight classes also being Hodge Trophy winners?
     
    Kyle Dake won a title at 141 as a freshman at Cornell and eventually won the Hodge.
     
    David Taylor won a title at 165 as a sophomore at Penn St and won the Hodge.

    Stl got a reaction from pawrestler in First Session Thread   
    Mizzou did not wrestle well this first round but it's laughable everyone whines about their "soft" schedule. Illinois, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, Cornell, North Carolina, Northern Iowa were all on their schedule, and those are good teams. It's not like they can wrestle 3-4 Big Ten teams every year, and in fact Brian Smith has said previously that there are regularly Big Ten teams that turn down requests from Mizzou to schedule duals.
     
    People say Mizzou's schedule was so soft, and then talk up guys they beat. For example, Lavallee beat Heffernan and Colgan, who have been getting talked up in this tourney, while he was getting roasted for lack of quality wins. Eierman beat Carr from Illinois badly at the beginning of the season and it gives him no credit, yet McKenna beat him at Big Ten's and everyone thinks it was such a great win.
     
    I get ragging on Mizzou for a soft schedule is what the cool kids are doing these days, but it's not reality.
     
    Unfortunately Mizzou's underperformance in Round 1 doesn't help dispel that thinking.

    Stl got a reaction from Housebuye in Early season impressions of VT and a look at the MO dual   
    My predictions:
     
    125: McGhee dec. Norstrem, MIZ 3 VT 0
    I feel like this is one of those matchups where McGhee has the slight upperhand now, but Norstrem would win later in the season. Regardless it'll be close.
     
    133: Gustafson dec. Erneste, MIZ 3 VT 3
    Gustafson's been wrestling great and I give him the slight edge here thinking he'll capitalize on a few Erneste mistakes. Tossup
     
    141: Eierman tf. Moore, MIZ 8 VT 3
    Eierman will be working for the pin all day here, but I think he doesn't quite get it.
     
    149: Chishko dec. Leeth, MIZ 8 VT 6
    Chishko will show why he's a multiple-time AA here, but Leeth is no slouch. I predict a relatively close match scorewise.
     
    157: Lavallee dec. LaPrade, MIZ 11 VT 6
    Lavallee will decisively control the match but I think it'll be just shy of a major.
     
    165: McFadden mdec. Flynn, MIZ 11 VT 10
    McFadden is a stud and I think he's gonna be trading matches with guys in the top 3 this year.
     
    174: Lewis pin Bolen, MIZ 17 VT 10
    Bolen is outmatched here, and Lewis is just so good on top that I think he'll get the pin.
     
    184: Zavatsky mdec. Marriott, MIZ 17 VT 14
    Zavatsky's shown how good he is and will be a tough match for freshman Marriott.
     
    197: Haught dec. Miklus, MIZ 17 VT 17
    I'm a huge Miklus fan and have faith he'll be in top form by the end of the season, but right now he seems to be shaking off some rust after last season's injury. I wouldn't be surprised if this match isn't as close as some may think.
     
    285: Myers dec. Dunn, MIZ 20 VT 17
    I think this match is one of the biggest tossups of the dual. Both wrestlers seem to be very even results-wise. Since it's so even, I'll just go homer and pick Myers. Who knows.
     
    Tossups to watch: 125, 133, 285
     
    Bonus to watch for: Eierman, Lavallee, and Lewis will be going up against McFadden and Zavatsky

    Willie Miklus will contend for a title. I know he's AA'ed before, but most people think Kollin Moore's gonna run away with the title this year. I think any match between them will be a barn burner.
     
    Call me crazy, but I also predicted that Joey Lavallee was going to have a breakout year last year.

    Stl got a reaction from Yellow_Medal in Ben Askren GOAT?   
    If we're talking purely about NCAA wrestling success, I don't know how you can put Ben Askren (4x NCAA Finalist, 2x NCAA Chamption, 2x Hodge Trophy Winner, 3rd all-time in pins, beat/finished ahead of the likes of future undefeated NCAA Champions Keith Gavin, Steve Luke, and Jake Herbert - another Hodge winner and who Askren majored) behind John Smith.
     
    Putting Gable ahead of Askren is more debatable, but I find it hard to put someone who didn't win NCAA's their senior year ahead of someone with accolades like Askren.
     
    I'm not saying that I think without Christ Pendleton, Askren would've been the GOAT, or even that Askren is the greatest 2x NCAA champ of all time (I haven't done enough research to form a clear cut opinion on the best 2x champ). But, I wouldn't necessarily put Gable above him and I definitely wouldn't put John Smith above him either.
