  1. Perry must be the first wrestler to never score a point and have gotten taken down twice, put to his back, then flat on his back getting pinned.... And still won?! Lol I wasn't too surprised that the ref called two then reversed the call the first time when Smith got upset. But my mind was blown when they called a takedown and 2 backs, then reversed that! Then howe gets in again, and has Perry flat on both shoulder blades for a solid 4-5 seconds and no pin or backs? I feel bad for Perry Most because you could tell in the post match he knew he didn't win that match. But that sucks for Howe because he wrestled aggressive and tough and the refs gave it away to the weaker man.
  2. Im an Okie State fan... But Howe got screwed on that one. I wouldn't have wanted to be Perry getting his hand raised on that one. They reversed Howes 2, then his 4, and then Perry was flat on his back and no pin was called.... Horrible
  3. Howe got screwed. That was horrible
  4. Refs are more involved in international wrestling than I've ever seen before. Its unfortunate because the athletes are incredibly talented but very seldomly get to showcase much of it. It almost seems like the refs do whatever they want, when they want... very little of the calls makes much sense at all, and at times seem to almost just award points for really no reason. Ide have to assume they're either that bad at reading and interpretting them or They're just deciding the winner and doing all they can in there power to help who they want to. what do you think? http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/25 ... dem-Turkey
  5. If I were Dake Ide probably go up or down a Wt. Gavin is weak IMO, and Dake is still young enough to fill the weight out. If JB ever had to sit out Dake could go back down anyway. Once a guy switches over to Greco at that level, its extremely tough to transition back and be competitive nationally. No offense to Dake and anything is possible, but he has about as good of shot as beating Burroughs as Dake does getting a job at Penn State LOL!
  6. Wow that's right! If I remember correctly he had his neck broke by Jay Loukidas. How long was the wait time before at that point between trials and Olympics? I would have to say the severity of the neck injury would have been worse, but the time period with JBs ankle was so close... But both freaks of nature.
  7. The russians were still on the floor when Keri vaulted, and it was extremely close as USA came from a come behind victory. So if you're not sure why, now you know. If you don't know much about MJ, maybe try searching for "greatest athlete of all time", that might help you a bit. It's clear that USA going home without a Gold would not have been pleasing, and is an enormous accomplishment. Not only does it give the USA a sense of pride but it is representative to the USA in the World Championships. The way he carries himself as a role model is unbelievable to then turn around a win a GOLD with a broken ankle to support it. Incredible!
  8. None of the responses appear to have been tuned in to the WATCH ESPN app program as I had. Herbert nor Jason commentated.
  9. Has this ever been done before? I know you hear of guys going out there with injuries and giving it there all, but were talking a broken ankle with 5 screws... None the less actually winning the Gold?!?? Jordan Burroughs is a real American Hero. In doing so wins the ONLY GOLD for the USA, in a tough time where we as a country are on the ropes. I dont know if the enormity of this has actually sunk in with most. The only thing I can say even begins to compare to me would be the great moment that Keri Strug stuck her last vault with a hurt leg at the Olympics to win GOLD. Or MJ playing with the FLU and having to get carried off the court. Even then were talking a WORLD TITLE in the sport of wrestling. Thoughts?
  10. pinning is a means to winning. Just like every other way. this is a dumb post
  11. Where is this confirmed? If this is true, than this Gold is one for the record books
  12. exactly, they wouldve been champions before with more... but now theyre bronze medalists etc
  13. I just read that he broke his anke a month ago and had a next day surgery... That would explain a bit lol
