    Final Forfeits

    So maybe its a problem that we have a system where we can't expect wrestlers to wrestle at a certain amount of wrestling tournaments throughout the year because they don't think it is worthwhile to do so...?

    I think this goes double for Burroughs, actually. I think there is a reason he won a squeaker against Salkazanov and then blew out Gor, who is better, and I think it has a whole lot more to do with the cut than anything else.

    Can someone please tell me why skipping a match is worse than skipping a tournament?

    This is only have the equation at best. The only reason why Chamizo was incentivized to forfeit is that he competed MORE and won MORE all year than Burroughs did. Why is skipping a match worse that skipping a tournament?

    We certainly are not underestimating Gwiz. Akgul just toyed with him, and Geno (the only guy who can beat Akgul) is a year younger than Gwiz.

    Good grief y'all sound entitled. Good on Chamizo for making the smart call with no financial or competitive incentive. Don't think there are many guys in the world who have been competing at his volume since they were an 18 y.o. world bronze. Really going to get on him for FFing a match when numerous people on our team don't step on a mat to entertain you for 8-9 months at a clip? You know what penalizing the medical FF would do? Get more guys to stay home all year. If you want awesome tournaments outside of Worlds, you have to give competitive advantages and professional advantages. The Grand Prix and UWW Seeding system is a phenomenal start, and I hope they get the prize money up. NCAAs is a whole separate issue. Can't fix that unless you make the season a reasonable length, and ideally limit it to one semester.

    No such thing as a lock to medal at 65kg anymore, but it's tough to not see Yianni as having more upside, right?

    Yianni/Schultz comparison?

    I think Yianni is an amazing athlete. Dave likely developed bone crushing grip simply front constantly wrestling, but I don’t think he ever moved as fast as Yianni can. A 200 degree split seems out of the question also haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yasar Dogu Saturday results

    Late to the party here, but did Burroughs catch a massive break while fleeing for the last minute of his quarterfinals, or am i wrong?

    I find it important to remember that B. Saitiev is the GOAT when having discussions like this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yianni/Schultz comparison?

    I agree you would think so, but Coach Demeo swore up and down that Dave was in the bottom 25% of athletes he ever worked with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yianni/Schultz comparison?

    My club coach worked with Dave for years, so I’ve heard hundreds of amazing stories of him overseas. I think you’re right, they have a remarkable and deep respect for the sport and wrestling cultures over the world. Dave learned multiple languages to basically make friends and learn wrestling, and I could definitely see Yianni do things like that. That said, the difference is that Dave would try to end your life or career when he was on the mat, in a viscous way I’ve never seen from Yianni. Also, Yianni is a billion times better of an athlete than Dave, who basically had to win by executing every technique perfectly and, again, brutally in order to win. Both absolute treasures in the sport, imo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Water polo is actually pretty brutal, so weird example. As far as Askren goes, I never expected him to be competitive at the top of this division, but I was shocked last night. He put his head down right into that knee like he has never seen that move before in his life. He could have moved backwards or laterally, and probably have been fine, but instead took an unbelievable amount of force directly to his brain, and probably years off his life in all reality. The dude has made millions in Asia with very little damage to himself, has a successful wrestling operation with his brother, and if he takes another fight after that it will be the stupidest decision of his life.
