    AHamilton got a reaction from treep2000 in Bo Nickal vs. Gordon Ryan - Modified Grappling Rules   
    Which is why it is illegal in folkstyle.  If he can get Bo's back, there will be serious trouble, probably sleepy time.  A smart Bo will just get takedowns and not fool around with other aspects of grappling.

    Full disclosure: I actually heard that Nolf's leg was an issue earlier in the day.  He was seen limping around at precisely the moment that IMAR entered the NYAC.  Apparently, even looking at IMAR causes his leg to hurt. Instant limp.

    Fair enough, but LEE has no third period! Hard to compare that to a glance at the ref.

    I don’t know about mean, but one might look at Fix’ break in focus and choosing to ref through the situation instead of wrestle through the situation as a mark against him in that question.

    Amazing how every time Nolf wrestles IMAR in freestyle his "leg is hurt."  This is twice in about six months.

    I think it is just a little tough to verbalize, and saying "athletic" is an easy default.

    You might be conflating Mueller's report on obstruction with his report on collusion. These are separate issues. I realize I am quoting Attorney General Wm Barr when I write this, but the report on collusion found that "No American Colluded with Russia". I am not going to find the report and cite the page number because it would take too long, so here is an article from the anything but conservative USA Today.
    Mueller specifically states in the report that he did not focus on “collusion” because it is not a term of art in federal criminal law. Instead, Mueller said he focused on deciding whether the Trump campaign committed conspiracy — a legally defined crime — and on “coordination,” which is not a legal term but which the special counsel defined as “more than the two parties taking actions that were informed by or responsive to the other’s actions or interests.”
    Mueller said he did not establish that “the Trump Campaign coordinated with the Russian government.”

    Edit: I realize there is a cottage industry devoted to re writing or spinning The Mueller Report for political ends. The too lazy to read the report eat this stuff up.
    I actually read the report in the days following its release. I am completely confident in my pov that if Mueller's hyper partisan lawyers, people like Andrew Weissman and Jeannie Rhree, and the full legal team that including support staff according to wiki totaled  37 lawyers ... if they could have charged Trump with a crime, they would have. 
    Finally, I do not start these political discussions here at themat.com. I tried to eradicate them by reporting threads, a few of which were closed. The problem with that tactic is that many threads are not closed and many overtly political posts come into this forum, usually by the same people. So while my responses are equally political, they are only "in response" and only to present the opposing POV. If the political commentary does not come to the board, which would be the best outcome for all, then no response would be necessary.

    For starters, the 3000 times he said he had proof of collusion. Mueller debunked that.

    Remember how good Joe Heskett was on the mat for Iowa State and then the US?
    How surprised so many of us were when he had to retire because it was found he did all his great wrestling with major medical heart problems?
    Enjoy the guys on the mat and hope for the best and whatever health challenges come up for the Athletes that they will be resolved.

    Remember guys - DT wasn’t his full beast self until about 3 years ago.  It is not that the other wrestlers he lost to in the years before that actually won due to their merits.
    TBar’s hypocrisy is legendary on these boards.
    Remember, if he says something wrong, he just says it to get you riled up.  
    He will deflect and ignore your points in a game of non-acknowledgment.  
    On Lee - I have no inside info but something weird was going on last year.  Looking forward to some clarity.  Hoping to see him making a strong run but I’d take the field over him at this point.

    If Lee was wearing a psu singlet, someone on this thread would not be saying anything about Lee and excuses. I find it hard to believe that a 2 time ncaa champ in two attempts, would be considered healthy, if he is gassing heavy halfway through matches. Lee wasn't healthy last year, I dont care what certain psu fans say. Iowa coaches and Lee said he was dealing with something. It isnt an excuse, it is information.  It doesn't matter because lee is 2 for 2 at ncaas. Some people just wish he was wearing a different singlet.

    There is a difference in making excuses and pointing out the obvious.  I think it was pretty obvious that Lee's ACL injury had an impact on his loss to Bresser at the Midlands.  I do no think it had an impact in his loss to NaTo.  I think if somebody points out that there was something obviously wrong with Lee this year they aren't making excuses for him.  Just pointing out what should have been obvious.  I don't see how a person can look at 2018 Lee and 2019 Lee and not think there was something wrong with him.  Now, with that said, if you step on the mat less than 100% then be prepared to deal with the consequences.  Lee lost 2x to Rivera and got pinned by Picc.  There won't be an * next to those results just because a lot of people acknowledge that Lee was less than 100%.  They beat him fair and square.
    It also puts into perspective how impressive Cael's run was.

    This is very wise.  The conventional wisdom is completely blown out of the water time and time again in this sport.  Who the hell knows what will happen.  Maybe Ringer takes the spot and wins Olympic Gold in 2020.  Seems a lot more likely than Slay beating Satiev seemed back in 1999.
