    Macey Kilty

    I see her and Shilson, and (a few years younger) Blades and Elor as future stars of WFS for team USA. Jayden Laurent is also just a year out of high school and super tough as well. Hopefully Macey, Jayden, and Amit spread out in weight a little so they can all represent rather than it being a logjam like the men's squad between 74-79-86kg.
  2. Wisconsin had an excellent 197 lb. wrestler named Dallas Herbst that had to have been 6'6" or so. Tallest college wrestler I've seen in many years. He beat Jake Varner at Midlands one year and was an AA for the Badgers. Mark Branch was an all-time great for OSU, 4x finalist with two titles (lost one by injury default). He was super tall and skinny. Probably 6'2"-6'3" ish at 168 lbs.

    Junior Worlds

    Vito in the semis but is not favored, Sloan alive if the Turk can make the finals. Lee, Thomas, and Brooks are eliminated. Tough day for team USA...
  4. I was impressed with Maxx Mayfield from Nebraska and Dajun Johnson from Wisconsin. AFAIK both are uncommitted.

    Thomas Gilman History

    He is reportedly a pretty chill guy off the mat and around town but he has absolutely no chill or sense of humor whatsoever when it comes to his sport. He has a super cringey, mean spirited, confrontational sense of humor and tends to say dumb stuff in interviews. I'm speculating, but I think the issue is that he hasn't let go of the college wrestling mentality of "Iowa vs. Everyone". I think he's aware of this perception, but it has become his schtick by now. Yesterday Burroughs even took the piss out of him a little at the Final X presser imitating him: "My mom told me if I didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all....hahaha, love you, Thomas." I agree that the "Jap" comment wasn't "racist", per se, but a super, super dumb thing to say while officially representing Team USA. He needs to watch his lip a little bit while on the international stage vs. among domestic rivals who understand what he's like. For all his defenders in this particular episode, would you go on the record in an interview while representing your employer and use what could be construed as ethnic slurs? Yeah, didn't think so...
  6. This tournament highlighted what a "level-up" it is to spend a year in a D1 room. Any high school kid who placed at this tournament is very, very good.

    Wrestling Legend's Kids in College

    Watched a nice scrap today between Nelson Brands and David Carr. As a fan of the old days of the ISU/Iowa rivalry this was cool to see.

    Returning Placers per weight

    A couple of 2018 AA's to add: Venz from Nebraska was 4th as a Freshman at 184, and Holschlag from UNI should be back at 197.

    Myles Martin - best ever 1 time champ?

    Alan Fried is usually at the top of these lists. More recently Andrew Howe is a good choice.
  10. Two kids with the same name: Peyton Robb at Nebraska and Peyton Mocco at Mizzou.

    NY for Pizza, Chicago for Italian beef

    113 pounders in College

    The current undefeated #1 at 125, Sebastian Rivera, was one of those guys. Hell, there was talk that Spencer Lee would also be undersized...

    Desanto vs Teasdale

    I was surprised the music didn't go right over people's heads...

    Oldest Wrestler in NCAAs

    It's gotta be a Mormon kid who took a mission and then a redshirt. I'd look at UVU's roster...

    Is taunting legal now?

    Desanto and Berger are the two worst offenders. You knew some crap was going to go down in a dual between their respective teams.
