  1. It was indeed a dominating win, and no doubt Pico is the real deal.
  2. Yeah, because saying that Pico is bigger, stronger and dominated Zain is now considered douchbaggery. Only to some assclown from Jersey.
  3. I'm reasonable and you don't answer my questions Tbar. :) Nothing marks the clueless man quite so boldly as self deception.
  4. superold, I wouldn't mind answering questions if they came from a reasonable person.
  5. Cornell did NOT choke in 2011. They just were not the best team.
  6. Chris Perry will wrestle at WTT and University. I'm assuming at the same weight as Foster, Gavin and Ruth. http://www.okstate.com/sports/m-wrestl/ ... 14aaa.html I still assume Howe will be at WTT, but have not seen it confirmed anywhere.
  7. Are you being serious? Why would someone have to laugh in order for it to be a joke? That doesn't make sense. I believe that you failed to answer at least one of my questions on another thread LkwdSteve. Superold, you ask hundreds of questions of others, but won't answer one question posed to you. How hypocritical of you. LkwdSteve, minor congrats on your intellectual win over superold. I'd offer more emphatic praise but arguing with this guy is like being a high seed and beating an unseeded wrestler. :D
  8. This news sucks. That type of injury has claimed a lot of athletic careers, but Dake is tough and he'd have the best Docs and therapists to help in his recovery. Wish him the best.
  9. I just call them as I see them, Mahty. I said that Varner, the NLWC wrestler, looked bigger and stronger against Michalek. Considering I was rooting for Varner, and not Michalek, was that an "excuse" or merely an "observation"??? Here is one more observation, you are still insecure about PA relative to Jersey.
  10. Pico vs. Zain http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/25 ... 1ga7Rx49Jk Pico is bigger and stronger and just dominates Zain. Zain vs. Ashnault http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/25 ... 1gfIRx49Jk

  12. This is an interesting question, because it looked to me like it may have been planned. Either way, Taylor went right to it and executed it perfectly. And Taylor looked like he knew it would work, as opposed to hoping it would work. I mean he was very aggressive with that move. Twice. Had that occurred towards the center of the mat it looked to me that Taylor could have rolled him a 2nd time for 2 more back exposure points.
  13. Pico is getting way too much cred out of that ONE SINGLE MATCH over a guy who we have no idea what kind of shape he was in that day. Pico wil obvioulsy eventually start beating senior level guys, but he isn't doing that YET. For that reason, he is not in the conversation for best US Freestylers right now. Metcalf would school him right now.
  14. My team has done that move since the late 90s and we teach it to 9th graders. It's not some mystery finish to the cradle that DT prepared weeks in advance; Burroughs' head popped out and Taylor capitalized with a move that high schoolers commonly hit in folkstyle. Has anyone else hit it against Burroughs?
  15. 11 and closing fast. Ed Ruth Not sure where to rank Pico. I have to see him wrestle more matches against the senior wrestlers.
  16. Bigger and stronger. I'd favor him over J.D. this time.
  17. wrestlingnerd, I agree with you. I'd add that even after Burroughs made it 7-6, in 12 seconds Taylor still managed to get one hand almost all the way behind Jordan's right knee. He wasn't that far off from being able to convert that. As great as Burroughs is, Dake and Taylor are not all that far behind him. Jordan is the clear #1 in the world, but where are Taylor and Dake? How many guys are better right now?
  18. IMO, nothing wrong with Taylor's positioning on the last shot. It isn't like he is upright. What I noticed more than anything about that shot is 1) Burroughs is still lightening quick even that late in the match and 2) Burroughs is actually still in motion, still moving forward during the re start. You can see #2 pretty clearly on the replay. Burroughs has momentum coming forward, toward Taylor, as the official makes the re start. That little bit of momentum helps. Someone else mentioned Taylor's position after the cradle, as if Taylor was in a bad position at the end of the cradle. I don't see that at all. It looks like if they were not out of bounds that Taylor could have rolled him thru again for a 2nd back exposure. I only looked at the second of the two cradles in making this judgment.
  19. I have read 3 or 4 boards where posters spoke about Flo streaming quitting on them. Kudos to the OP for laying out some of the glitches. I'd add that having your marquee match up start past midnight on the East Coast, plus beyond the limit of the broadcast show, isn't a positive. It is wrestling, so you learn to just expect this sort of thing. Pretty soon they'll do something really crazy, like mess up the NCAA Tournament by giving teams an edge before the thing even starts. :D
  20. Taylor could win 60 in a row and when he loses you can bet the vault there will be some hater on the internet typing "another loss for Taylor" ...... Focus on the positive, man.
  21. Saw the match. Great wrestling from both guys. I thought Taylor actually had him, but Jordan is Jordan.
  22. As I understand the new rule, if you have a proper hold + your opponent has three points of contact with the ground BUT you don't get behind your opponent then it is a 1 pt. take down. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
  23. I normally do that too, but guess when I hit the record button for this event? At about 11:45 the night before during the semifinals when I was dog tired. That kind of tired leads to mistakes, hence my not recording an extra 30 minutes. Congrats to the programmers. Even a guy who wanted to watch this did not get to see it. Maybe a reasonable time in the evening would be wiser, but this is wrestling so I have grown to expect this sort of thing.
  24. What sort of idiots programmed this one? I DVR it and the broadcast runs out about 5 seconds BEFORE Burroughs-Taylor. Real geniuses they are. Not.
