    MSU158 got a reaction from fadzaev2 in Flo's "Metcalf"   
    Yeah, Chase was really special and was a lot more raw than Brent to start High School.  I admittedly didn't know too much about him until States his Frosh season.  He was still at Goodrich then and, I don't remember what happened for him to take 4th at his Regional(defaults?), but he hit a fellow freshman phenom in Andy Simmons 1st round.  He ended up losing 6-0, but he looked like he belonged on the mat with Andy and no one else in the state really did at that time.  He then ran through the bracket with relative ease, taking 3rd winning 20-5.
    He was at Davison the following season and took 3rd again.  After that he was a straight up wrecking ball, going something like 110-0 his last 2 seasons.  He seemed a lot flashier than Brent and seemed to have a bit more pure speed.  Whereas Brent was methodical and punishing.
    Both were amazing to watch at the High School level and were there at the start of Davison's dominant run.
    Also, he did wrestle for UofM for 2 seasons, but as you can tell by the documentary, he just didn't have the focus by that point.

    Unless you actually met Mother Theresa, which I highly doubt, what other way did you learn about her?  Even in today's world of body cams, you get different perspectives from different cams simply because they aren't 360 degrees seeing clearly through every obstruction with zero distortion.  Simply put, your statement is why criminal law is beyond a reasonable doubt and inevitably why it is so hard to prove a capital crime.  Imagine being a juror deciding on if someone lives or dies and the glove doesn't fit.  If the glove doesnt' fit, you must acquit.

    He actually controlled Churella rather well in the semis that year.  Churella was the 2 seed and Hendricks the 3.  In fact, Hendricks had a really strong tournament pretty much dominating into the semis and then 2 controlling wins over Churella and Perry. 
    The bigger part of that bracket was a freshman Perry knocking off Letter 3-0.  Letters was undefeated and was dominant during the season similar to a Retherford season.  Perry did a great job in the 1st of slowing Letters down.  He got to his leg multiple times and used up a ton of time holding on.  But, I think the 2nd period was the kill shot.  Letters had no answer for Perry's ride. After about 30 seconds of a hard double leg ride, Letters sat back into a Perry's crab ride right off the restart and Perry was able to hold him long enough with a half to get a 5 count.  After that, Letters was fully out of it mentally.  It may have been the most masterful match I have seen Perry wrestle!

    MSU158 got a reaction from KCMO2 in Worst Losers   
    Look:
    1.) Caldwell STARTED his celebration and flip(just because he isn't in the air before the whistle doesn't mean the flip doesn't start before it) BEFORE the clock ran out.  
    2.) Metcalf STARTED chasing him around the mat BEFORE the clock ran out.
    3.) By the time Caldwell is in the air, Metcalf has almost completely stopped and barely touches him. He OBVIOUSLY pulls up.  What he did was the equivalent of the minor shoulder bump when walking past someone walking towards you.  
    4.) If Metcalf was so bad, he would have kept his complete momentum, by the time Caldwell is mid-air, he ends up flying OFF the platform.
     
    Should Metcalf have COMPLETELY pulled off?  Sure.  But, what he did is NOWHERE NEAR what some of you paint it to be......................

    At 79kg, I would bet on Dake... I still think he is the better wrestler. If there’s no weigh in, I don’t think Dake is that much better that he can give up that kind of weight to an elite wrestler like Taylor and still win.

    MSU158 got a reaction from IfYouAin'tFirstYou'reLast in USA Wrestling--Black Male Athletes' Experience   
    It's truly systemic and the percentage in wrestling almost assuredly is no different than it is EVERYWHERE.  Racial prejudices are so much more cultural than simple viewpoints of "color".  Hell, I would bet that nearly 100% of white people have used the n word to describe a black person. 
    It isn't as simple as equality.  It is more exclusively based on inclusion.  As long as the societal differences are so monumental, hatred will remain on BOTH sides.  Hatred and fear are often fueled by lack of understanding.  Detroit is the most racially segregated city in the U.S.  As a result, there is a GIANT gap between white and black.  Those living in the suburbs have clearly defined the borders of Detroit since I was a kid and so did those living in Detroit.  Whites didn't go south of "8 Mile Rd." and blacks didn't come north.  
    Protests, marches and guilt are NOT going to make any lasting headway.  Daily life integration is the ONLY true way to break down the walls on both sides.  You need to be living next to each other.  Going to school together.  Playing together. Working together.  Sharing similar interests.  I simply don't see any other way........

    MSU158 got a reaction from Jim L in USA Wrestling--Black Male Athletes' Experience   
    I disagree that constant protests, marches and guilt are going to improve the current state of racism.  It especially helped  initiate change in the 60's because racism was brutally bad back then.  Now, it is all too easy to keep the status quo as soon as the rage dies down.  I am thinking about long term solutions.
    Also, because Minnesota is planning a possible "de-funding" of police does NOT mean these protests and riots are IN ANY WAY successful.  Immediate knee-jerk reactions can cause more harm than good.
    Simply put, protests and guilt may cause people to INITIATE the change.  But constant protesting isn't going to MAKE change.  Real change will only come from education and understanding.  Too many protests and guilt/blaming will likely devolve into a negativity that defeats the point.

    I think you and MSU are arguing two parallel points of improvement.  He is advocating ways to help improve the longer term change in an individuals way of thinking/viewing the matter,  where you are pointing out the pathway that have and can  bring about improved legal/civil rights changes.   Changing the laws and changing someones thinking are both important, but are not always achieved at the same time and through the same methods.

    I completely get what you are saying.  You not only have to "un-teach" all the hatred, fear and understanding, you have to also create an environment that minimizes the chances to form uneducated opinions.  Without significant integration, the lack of exposure is systemic to the problem.  Many racist opinions are based on perceived stereo types instead of a significant number of actual, diverse experiences.
