  1. Not only that, but the push out when Ruth was leading 5-4 belonged to Ed not Clayton. The score should have been 6-4, not 5-5. Ed basically got screwed. He will start to dominate very quickly.
  2. Gets put on shot clock but takes no shots ain't gonna work. Taylor is too good for Caldwell. Burroughs looked great to me, so I don't get the comment above where someone claimed otherwise.
  3. :lol: He's better than the second guy Taylor wrestled who basically flopped to his own back and pulled a DF in 14 seconds. :lol:
  4. Neither Retherford nor Pico has been scored on in three matches so far. Zain has won by scores of 10-0, 10-0, and 10-0 while Pico has won by 11-0, 10-0, and 10-0. Can't be any more dominant than that. Pico has Jamel Hudson next, then maybe Jake Short in the semis. Short won't just roll over. Zain has Ashnault then Valencia in all likelihood.
  5. The brackets are up now. On Pico's side he'd probably get Edgar Bright in the quarters, then either Jake Short, Ty Dippery or Tyler Berger in the semis. Zain would likely get Ashnault in the quarters and then in the semis either Seth Gross or Zahid Valencia.
  6. You're right. I forgot how lopsided that became. Can't dispute it.
  7. Burroughs vs. Taylor last year at this event. 3-1 and 1-0, so pretty respectable.
  8. I have been watching Zain since 9th grade and I can't recall anyone dominating him. Tsirtsis beat him in a close match last year, but Jason probably walks around at least 10lbs. bigger than Zain. The toughest guy Zain has faced in any tourney or dual, by far imo, is Stieber.
  9. The guy Nolf wrestled from GA was a last minute substitute. The best kid from GA mildly tore up his knee while training for this event. The back up kid, while solid, didn't have time to train and was one of the few guys (along with Moody) who was from south GA and didn't get to train with the rest of the all stars that much. We all in GA were looking forward to seeing our #1 kid (Kamaal Abdul-Shakur is his name) go with Nolf. He's a hell of an athlete and I think he would have competed well against Nolf. I will be on the look out for this kid if I see his name entered in any tournaments. Is he a Sr.? Going to a D1 school?
  10. Yeah, pretty much agree. Nickal dominated Ness with his quickness and athleticism. Made it look kinda easy. http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/25 ... 07u3Feyp5Z
  11. Mega was injured near the end of NCAA's, so it becomes reasonable that he misses this event. Anyone know what happened to Howe and Perry?
  12. Where is Andrew Howe? Not wrestling in this event?
  13. Flo has all the videos up except the Nickal-Ness match. I watched TC Warner, Jason Nolf and Chandler Rogers all win with some great wrestling. The kid Nolf wrestled was real strong, but Jason was just too slick for him. Jason pretty much wore him out with his pace.
  14. Wrestler of the Year, Pennsylvania's Chance Marstellar. Can't wait to see what he can do at the next level.
  15. Beats me. They are both great wrestlers. Pico has been wrestling only free so that is a big advantage, plus any of Zain's riding skills are neutralized. Then again, Zain still won a cadet world title so it isn't like he can't go free himself. It should be very entertaining. Henderson isn't in Zain's caliber of wrestler, imho. Carter may or may not be. Port was bigger than Zain and it took until OT for him to beat Zain. Not that it really matters. BTW, who else is going at that weight in juniors?
  16. Retherford was the 3rd best 141...and the only one Stieber couldn't bonus. His offense is lacking. Pico might beat him. But destroyed in the 1st? Not at all likely. You sound like the typical internet troll. What are you talking about? He got 5th at NCAAs, so claiming he is the third best is a real stretch don't you think? As far as Pico vs Retherford, I think Pico will win comfortably. Zain doesn't do a whole lot offensively, and does a great job at keeping it close - but I don't think he has what it takes to beat Pico in a FS match up. I didn't make the comment that you are referring to, but that comment hardly seems a stretch. For starters, Retherford wrestled Stieber better, by a good amount, than anyone else. Retherford's only other loss came in his first wrestle back against Port, and that loss was in OT ride outs. Henderson has more losses to lesser foes than Retherford, and I would take Zain over him any day of the week. Devin Carter may or may not be able to beat Zain. Judging by Carter's getting majored by Stieber, maybe Zain is a little better than he is too.
  17. Does the announcement say he is at NLWC for only the summer?
  18. Spencer Lee dominated everyone he faced this year. He was OW at Ironman as a 9th grader and basically dominated everyone at PIAA's. He is already one of the best h.s. wrestlers in the country.
  19. Bo stepped up 2 weight classes to take on Chip Ness and he beat him 12-3. Bo will be a good one for Penn State Coach Cael Sanderson. http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/25 ... 0v4vFeyp5Y
  20. Vhsalum, what I said about Maple has absolutely not been proven wrong. If you insist it has, could you explain how? Your f'ing trolling on an athlete with a medical condition, asshat. THAT IS how you are WRONG.
  21. The kid's father comes on here and passionately tells us about a medical condition and you, superold, are still pounding your little drum. There is something very wrong with you. To papa maple, thanks for sharing your son's story. Please accept the rest of this msg. board's wishes that Kendrick solve his medical issue to the fullest extent. Best wishes to your son and family.
  22. According to the newspaper it was a group of 10 thugs. Someone knew who one of them was and the police went to the alleged assailant's house where they quickly rounded up all 10 of them.
  23. Mike Chapman, founder of the Hodge Trophy, agreed. "For pure wrestling talent, I have seen only five or six wrestlers over the past 50 years who could match David Taylor," Chapman said. "He was a constant-motion machine and wrestled with an enthusiasm that delighted fans of not only Penn State but from other colleges, as well. "If everyone competed like David Taylor, wrestling would be one of the most popular sports in America. His graduation leaves a big hole on the college scene but we can all look forward to seeing him turn his vast talents to freestyle."
  24. I figured you for some population argument. Take out inner city Philly and all those numbers change. They shouldn't drop wrestling where large numbers of people actually care about it.
  25. Yes they would, F-T, yes they would. :D
