  1. You keep calling him Martinez. Patrick Martinez didn't make the team this year at 87kg. Patrick Smith is who is on the team at 77kg.
  2. Well given that Downey couldn't even beat Rau a year ago in freestyle I doubt he's able to overtake him in Greco.
  3. Dake was teched by Coleman in high school in greco. Many of the top freestylers have tried crossovers and done poorly. Parterre is at a whole other level in greco. At the OTC many of our world team members do crossover matches and the greco guys do pretty well against the freestylers particularly when it comes to wrestling on the mat. I was looking for the Jordan Burroughs vs Justin Harry Lester practice match but can't find it.
  4. Wouldn't say he got controlled. Definitely thought the other guy should've been put down as his only points were scored in the beginning. Coleman kept getting on top after the guy would attempt a headlock that it appeared had been stopped and each time they stood them back up. Bulgarian blocked off the majority of the match besides the headlocks. How did you see it differently?
  5. Looks like it might be a JUCO near Oak Park.
  6. He had 3 dislocated ribs with all of the cartilage torn.
  7. Yes, I know. So was I. I'll have to check out that match sometime.
  8. Joseph was thoroughly dominated in the Fargo finals by Isaiah White. Not much to disagree with there. Most people seem to disagree with this Nickal tweet. Besides Thaddius Baker who sounds like Tbar.
  9. How can you watch the matches that already happened? Does anyone have a link? When I click on the button that says "Watch" on the UWW website it doesn't open and on ESPN 3 I only see live events from other sports.
  10. Comedian Pete Davidson went to rehab for weed. http://www.cc.com/video-clips/ncrxrg/rehab-for-christmas
  11. I saw him outside of the arena at the 2012 Olympics. Up close he looked insanely big and jacked. I couldn't believe he made 265. He wasn't just getting out of a workout then. From seeing Dlagnev in videos now compared to when he was competing he also looks smaller. I saw him up close jump roping once at a practice and I thought his legs were incredibly massive. It's hard to tell if he did really get smaller from the videos though. I don't think there's the motivation to continue eating so much and lifting so hard when you're not competing.
  12. I read on here that it was supposed to be Mat C and the 7th match. I don't know if that's 7th overall or 7th just on Mat C. Think they're on the 3rd match for Mat C now.
  13. Looks like the video was posted March 2011. I figure he was saying that because of the prior sentence which says no one went the distance with him. Never can say where a kid is going to end up so early.
  14. How do you know he wasn't?
  15. Well did Smith win match 3 with a knee pick? Watch the sequence at 4:50. https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6280587-2019-final-x-rutgers/videos?playing=6516640&limit=60
  16. Why is a zero time national qualifier on this list with all NCAA champs and All Americans? Long arms, great hips, and big hands are all great attributes to have as a wrestler.
  17. Plus Brayton Lee who just beat both those guys will be in the mix. What weight do you think he's going?
  18. First, Lewis wrestled in Juniors not in U23's. It may have affected McFadden but I doubt it affected Lewis much since Juniors are sooner (September). I don't believe these competitions have as much of a negative effect on the wrestlers as people are making them out to have. Second, while Lewis' first loss to Flynn may have shown to be a bit of a fluke, his loss to Isaiah White was not a bad one. He only rode White for 9 seconds and then got ridden the entire 3rd period. While I'm sure Lewis' ability to get off the bottom improved throughout the year, this is a loss I could see him taking again next year. They never faced each other again this past season. Third, Hidlay lost to more than just Nolf at NCAA's last year. While I'd agree he's the favorite there are still capable contenders coming back at the weight like Deakin (Final X) and Early (win over Hidlay). Additionally, there will be many young studs coming off redshirt next year who may show themselves as title threats. I do think Hidlay would have a much tougher time winning it or even placing top 3 up a weight though.
  19. The old cut off for University Worlds used to be age 28 and you had to be enrolled at a college. I can't say how thoroughly they checked this.
  20. If you need proof they're still having trouble and it's not just a personal WiFi issue go back and watch the US Open greco finals. Here's an example of a match from the finals that is nearly unwatchable because of some tech problem. https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6461391-67-kg-final-ellis-coleman-armywcap-vs-hayden-tuma-armywcap
  21. IF the money is right. He said he would be interested in trying one fight but it doesn't sound like it unless its for big check.
  22. Sadulaev recently said he would never do MMA. https://intermatwrestle.com/articles/21804 Snyder has said in the past he might like to try it.
  23. If that was their reason it's pretty frustrating considering how many medals are awarded to every random sidestroke in swimming and the ballerina dancing in gymnastics. I thought it was more about how many overall competitors would be at the event though. Adding weights significantly increased the amount of participants. The only other fix to that was further reduction in the amount of wrestlers per weight but its already reduced from Worlds and it limits diverse country participation.
  24. That was an amazing match to watch live. I can't find it online besides a small clip though. Does anyone have it? Also, Cejudo retired after that loss. Threw his shoes into the crowd and everything. It would be funny to return after that.
