  1. F you’re right. I’m changing my prediction to Burroughs. One pretty bad loss and two tight wins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It’s a smart position, but dear god let us analyze this to death, this is the first time in a while we have used the board for what it’s for rather than descending into personal or political bickering where I have to mute everyone to find wrestling posts. Prediction: Dake 2-1. One comfy win one close loss one close win. Confidence level: VERY low. Would not bet on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. IMO, Jordan Burroughs is slightly cooler under pressure than Kyle Dake and it might make the difference because they are within a couple points of each-other even if you think Dake has a slight edge in ability right now, which I agree with. The clutch gene might be slightly overstated, but it's definitely not a myth just because Sidakov has it too and is just slightly better right now.
  4. Didn't mean trench warfare like tough greco handfighting, and I agree that Burroughs tactics rely on basically "wrestling" as little as possible, but he has been in some freaking battles over the years...tsargush, geduev, howe, chamizo. I don't think there are many blood and guts matches like those in Dake's resume really.
  5. I agree that he is extremely physical and can beat the crap out of or completely overwhelm someone , but can he win the nip and tuck, bloody trench warfare matches that Burroughs somehow comes out on top of like 98% of the time?
  6. Honest question: when has Dake won a fist fight? I think he is going to have to, but I don't know if he can.
  7. Everything has been very tight in that matchup for a long time, and I don't think there is a big difference in relative skill, style, or technique which has changed substantially for either. Geduev reveled the template to beat Burroughs: stay almost inhumanely discipled with your levels, punch Jordan right back in the mouth when he punches you repeatedly in the face, and fight every position like one pushout could decide the match. Burroughs has a mental edge, and if Dake looks over to the ref one time to complain about something I will put the house on JB winning the series.
  8. I would say our 74kg is substantial less than a coin flip to win the Olympics since they likely have to win two matches which are essentially coin flips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Pretty good showing for Nolf. He can't deal with the power that Dake brings, but neither can anyone else on Earth really.
  10. Nolf's head is getting pulled down WAY too easily for this to go well for him.
  11. What a match! Nice win for Dean outscrambling Nickal by a hair.
  12. Yeah Nate Jackson has wrestled anyone he could get his hands on all "season". Definitely expect a payoff down the line from all the experience he has been soaking up.
  13. imagine Vinchenzo Joseph trying to push back against a bull elephant walking towards him.
  14. These kids have absolutely nothing to throw at Dake. completely unfazed.
  15. Got caught on his back and pinned trying to force a gut.
  16. Arajau really is wise beyond his years in freestyle.
  17. Who is the woman announcer? I don't recognize her voice. Not sure if anyone caught the Captains Cup, but Adeline Gray was phenomenal on the mic.
  18. Looks like the coaches are trying to get their guys some quick turnaround bouts like they would see at a tournament. Really smart hybrid approach. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Fair enough. I just think if we don’t do the first one then it’s unfair to expect people not to do the second one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. like the tournament where this happens routinely? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_medal_sweeps_in_Olympic_athletics Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Very sad to hear this. He left a lasting impact we should all aspire to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
