    rhino184 got a reaction from BadgerMon in Voting on the 8 greatest college matches   
    The interesting part of this is though Caldwell vs. Metcalf was perhaps more exciting than Perry vs. Hendricks, it benefits in our memory of the story that came into play before hand. Previous history, the dominance Metcalf had displayed all year. If going off the point of top 8, is it up there just based on wrestling; I don't know, but with the story attached it's all the more memorable

    rhino184 reacted to KCMO2 in What matches are you most looking forward to in the 18/19 season?   
    Yianni v Eierman.
    They split last year with one match being won in the finals seconds, and the other being won in OT.  Eierman appears to have continued to improve, as evidenced by his senior level freestyle results (just pinned the 2016 world silver medalist in Poland last week).
    Yianni's probably the better wrestler and more technically sound, but Eierman's much more dangerous, from any position.

    rhino184 reacted to Fishbane in DelSanto   
    He freaked out at the end of his quarterfinal with Mueller at Cliff Keen too.  Mueller was on top and he does a couple standing granbys/no hands cartwheels with Mueller on his back with a leg in and when that fails to shake Mueller he stands up for a third time and does the old jump backwards on top of your opponent for an illegal slam.  That's 3 of his 7 losses this season that he's given up a point in the closing seconds for an illegal technique.  It's crazy. 
    The other loss at NCAAs was in sudden victory so he didn't have a chance to freak out in that he wasn't trailing at the end.  The loss at the scuffle he knocked himself silly by hitting his head on the mat when executing a mat return on Mueller and had to med default with a concussion.  In his interview after beating Mueller at NCAAs he seems to be saying that Mueller was responsible for his injury.  Looking at the video it was more like when Lindland KOed himself with a suplex than Mueller hurting DeSanto.  The only match I've seen where he was losing at the end and did not freak out was the 3rd place match at Cliff Keen.  Couldn't find a video of his loss in the ISU dual so there could be two.

    LOL at the secret part...given the lack of secrecy of it.
    That said, no, no victory laps for beating Flo here.
    For what it's worth, based on my bracket projections (which are slightly different than the simply ordinal numbers used across the board here, as they account for the actual matchups, something taking the top eight in order doesn't do), I had 555 points, which doesn't move me up at all in these rankings. I will say, however, that I had 58 of 80 All-Americans, one more than the seeds got, and 15 finalists, versus 12 based on the actual seeds.

    I've watched several of his matches, including all of them from Southern Scuffle.  Multiple times he started early from neutral, and was warned.  Each time he would put his hands up, like "what did I do", looking around like he was astonished at the call.  It gets annoying quickly. 
    Wrestle hard and fair, and most people will cheer for you.  I hope he grows up over the next few years, because he can be fun to watch.

    I think DeSanto is a guy that can be a fan favorite for many with his style, pace, and aggressiveness, but his antics, especially the multiple times where he has questionably attempted to injury someone, can make him someone some people will want to root against

    Do you watch college football? What about college basketball? It is normal for events to be delayed based on an event before it running over. This years Sugar Bowl was pushed back at least fifteen minutes based on the other playoff game running over. Again, not a big deal.

    If they have to delay it 15 mins, I’m ok with that. Don’t want to relive the finals years ago when it was Dubuque-Ott and they joined the broadcast with like less than a minute left in the second period because a random tennis match ran over(wasn’t even a major tennis tournament either). 
    As long as the finals air live, I could care less if it’s on ESPN 1or2.

    Two questions
    1. Would you rather they just start and viewers miss a match?
    2. If we were in that same boat would you want them to cut away from Coon vs. Snyder to start a women's cricket match?

    Askren waivers on the idea that the shootings in Sandy Hook might have been some kind of government scheme, conspiracy, etc...  If one entertains that sort of nonsense he probably does not need to leading anything at a respected public university.  Heck, if he is willing to open that door in public, there is a solid chance what he keeps to himself and closets friends could be pretty awful.
