    What did you like best about him? Was it the habit of repeating something one of the other guys had just said or was it is tendancy to be longwinded and come to no conclusion at all? I like Willie on FRL because he was a character, but I dont think they lost anything that cannot be replaced. 

    Somewhat agree but Pyles is arrogant and comes off like a band geek so he won't be able to carry the show now. In fact, the remaining cast all comes off as nerdy frat boys and the show has lost what little personality it had in the form of Willie despite the flaws you correctly point out above.

    How is it that FLO has no commentary for the 3rd place matches?    What better thing do they have to do with their Saturday afternoon - eat nachos at the Vegas Sports bar?

    I just don't get it - these are some of the greatest matchups we'll see all year, and FLO can't be bothered?

    Isn't listening to Bader punishment enough? OH HIS SHOE CAME UNTIED........OH HE ALMOST TRIED A SHOT....seems like a nice guy but Bader=mute button for me. 

  3. high scores are typically indicative of sloppy wrestling and/or mismatches...


    there was lots of high quality wrestling that went down last night... if you can not recognize that then maybe you should stick to basketball... 


    You're right there were no mismatches last night. Care to recap the third round results for me?

  4. What is getting lost in all this is the question if the wrestler is 100% or not at the NCAAs? Did Suriano's condition warrant his seed last year? His yearly body of work did, but once you saw him limp onto the mat it should have been a no brainer not to give him the high seed. What about Nolf? He looked good to me this weekend but they felt the need to cautiously protect/prevent him from further injury. So realistically can we say he's about 75% of his normal self then seed a 75% Nolf? Ditto Suriano?


    If Nolf at 75% is unlikely to beat say Pantelo, then why should they seed him ahead of Pantelo based on his current 75% condition? If you want to factor in 2 weeks more of recovery then just consider say a 85% Nolf etc.....

  5. Reminds me of the old Ohio State High School Wrestling Tournament when it was held at Wright State, which dropped its wrestling program.  All these wrestling people filling the coffers of a school that dumped on the sport.  OHSAA finally wised up and took the meet to Ohio State, where wrestling is treated with respect.



    It must have been an accident as OHSAA rarely does anything wisely. You are talking about an organization that runs its state semi final matches for 3 divisions simultaneously on NINE mats. Who in the hell can follow semi finals on 9 mats?

  6. Rutgers program is in good shape, now they have to earn it by winning something. As I see it, right now they have one top notch wrestlet in Suriano and one low to mid AA in Lewis.


    They would get trounced by a top 3 school.

    And just how many outside the Top 3 would NOT get trounced by a top 3 school?
