  1. Went to the first session and watched all session so far on line: 1.) The Forum is way too big for this event. The turn out for the morning session was maybe 3,000 people. 2.) I hope they got there act together for the later sessions because it was painfully un-organized and they were saving lots of money on not turning the air conditioning system on. 3.) I sat in the middle of an Iranian contingent. They were very knowable and fun to hang out with. 4.) $25.00 bucks for parking. The Wrestling though American eyes: 1.) The U.S. team came ready to go and so did the Iranian team. 2.) The Guys from Mongolia are fun to watch. They are very aggressive and are looking to throw all the time. 3.) The Russians seem to be just going through the motions. 4.) Angel Escobedo looked really solid until he wrestled the Iranian then it was like a man vs. boy. 5.) Reese Humphrey is so fun to watch but really needs to work on his defense. 6.) Brent Metcalf like in college is a cardio freak and it is serving him well. His offence Hi-C or bust. 7.) 70 KG Marabel is sucking too much weight. Moza fey looked really solid. I really wanted to see Jason Welch compete. 8.) Jordan Burroughs makes it look easy. 9.) Clayton Foster is just sneaky slick and I think could be a real factor internationally over the next few years. 10.) Jake Varner please come back dedicated. Even saying that Reza Yazdani is just a frigging beast. 11.) Tervel Dlagnev please stay out of the front head lock. I really wanted to see Tyrell Fortune wrestle.
  2. Nice reporting Huffington Post I like how we “aced Iran later in the day”.
  3. I was at session one today. I love to watch wrestling especially at this level. But the presentation of this completion is frigging awful. This could be such a showcase event and they are completely failing for the live audience. One other note Iran has an unbelievable team. Just dominant.
  4. I have been kicked in the nuts and taken a liver shot. I would rather be kicked in the nuts than take a liver shot any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
  5. Any updates? A bunch of guys wrestled today. http://instagram.com/p/kak8--HGqm/#
  6. dsnc471 good write up and I would add that the financial state of the university system in California and the effects of title IX make it unlikely that the situation will improve any time soon. If I had gigga bucks I would fund a private institution like USC.
  7. Marty Kistler wrestled for Iowa not Iowa State and didn’t he take second as a sophomore behind Kenny Monday?
  8. I heard that Welch and Pico are wrestling in Cuba on the 11th are there any others competing?
  9. Good parking, good size venue, scary neighborhood.
  10. The world cup is going to be held in Los Angeles, but where? LA is a big place especially if you include Orange County.

    Just watched the OU/ Missouri match. It is not smart to get physical with Andrew Howe. He went up a weight, the guy he wrestled looks to be a pretty good size 184 lb guy. The guy comes out real aggressive. Then Howe proceeds to just physically destroy him.
  12. I always thought Rutt was big at 197 lb. Cox look huge, like a sucked down heavy. He is going to be a handful at the NCAA unless he gets the freshman burnout by March.
