    Snyder's first match will be against either Iran (Goudarzi) or Ukraine (Mchedlidze).  FLO has them ranked #15 and #16, respectively.

    Track Wrestling article:

     

    The brackets are out for this weekend’s Yasar Dogu in Turkey, where the United States men’s freestyle squad aims to enhance its standing in the United World Wrestling rankings.

    Americans Thomas Gilman, Logan Stieber, Jordan Burroughs, David Taylor and Kyle Snyder are scheduled to take the mat Friday in Istanbul.

    Full brackets are linked below and we’ll have the tournament streamed live for free on Trackwrestling throughout the weekend. Action begins Friday morning at 4 a.m. ET.

    Gilman is slated to open the tournament against Kazakhstan’s Berdakh Primbayev in the first round at 57 kilograms and the 2017 World silver medalist would tangle with Turkey’s Suleyman Atli in the quarterfinals if he gets past Primbayev. Atli won last year’s Yasar Dogu, claimed a European U23 title in 2017 and grabbed a bronze on the senior level at the 2017 European Championships.

    Stieber opens the tournament at 65 kilograms against Kazakhstan’s Daulet Niyazbekov, a 2018 Asian champion.

    Burroughs faces Iraq’s Saeed Zervanatareq in his first bout at 74 kilograms. It’s worth noting that the five-time World and Olympic champion is on the opposite side of the bracket from two-time World champ Frank Chamizo of Italy.

    Taylor opens the tournament against Kazakhstan’s Azamat Dauletbeko at 86 kilograms. He could run into 2017 World silver medalist Boris Makoev of Slovakia in the quarterfinals.

    Snyder received a first-round bye. The three-time World and Olympic champ will either face Ukraine’s Murazi Mchedlidze or Iran’s Alireza Goodarzi. Snyder could be in line for a possible semifinal bout against 2012 Olympic gold medalist Sharif Sharifov of Azerbaijan. Sharifov first must get past fellow Azeri Aslanbek Alborov, a 2017 World bronze medalist.

    I think you just proved my point.  You appear conditioned like Pavlov's dogs to change the conversation, focus, topic, or person when someone brings up corruption in the CURRENT (!) administration.  If you don't believe the Russians interfered with our elections when every single US intelligence source and practical every member of congress acknowledges that, then I guess you also must believe the moon is made of cheese.   Please tell me where you get your news or what kind of education you have.

    Deep State?  Conspiracy-minded people are usually the least-educated in society.  They look for simple and singular causes to explain complex phenomena.   They claim non-existent things or beings (ghosts, God, aliens, WMDs in Iraq) are real even when there is zero evidence for them.  On the other hand, when there is a ton of evidence for something (anthropocentric climate change, Presidential corruption, Russian interference in our elections) they tend to attack the messengers, create distractions, point the finger to people who are no longer or were never in charge, etc.   Classic fallacies and obfuscation.

    I do believe Bernie was "shafted" as you say by his own party.  I'm not fan of Hillary.  The Dems are certainly not my party, though they are far better than the Republicans, who as Noam Chomsky has noted are the most dangerous organization on earth when you figure in their war on truth, their wars in fact, their ignorance of and opposition to climate change, their coddling of repressive governments, etc.  Hold your breath a while.  It may or may not be collusion. It could be obstruction however.  Meanwhile DT attacks our friends and allies constantly and sides with dictators and authoritarians.   If the right wing can't explain that behavior, well then they are spineless cowards.  it's fine to be a conservative, but it's now disgraceful to be a member of the GOP who supports DT.   Lots of smart conservatives are saying this and opposing the dangerous and anti-democratic DT: George Will, Steve Schmidt, Charles Krauthammer, Michael Steele, Joe Scarborough, Bill Kristol, etc.   They place country above party, as all intelligent people should.

    Here is some information on Metcalf's best international wins (courtesy of FLO):
     
    Metcalf made four senior world teams but came up short every year. 

    To see why, check out his impressive list of wins.
     
    Metcalf's Hitlist No. 3 (74kg) Jabrayil Hasanov: 2010, 2011, 2016 World/Olympic bronze medalist No. 3 Franklin Gomez: 2011 World runner-up (60kg) No. 8 Meysam Nasiri Soslan Ramonov: 2014 world champ, 2015 World bronze, 2016 Olympic champ, unranked due to inactivity No. 12 (70kg) Ikhtiyor Novruzov: 2015 World silver (65kg), 2016 Olympic bronze (65kg) No. 10 (70kg) Mandakhnaran Ganzorig: 2013 & 2014 World bronze medalist (65kg) No. 9 Magomed Muslimov No. 4 (70kg) Magomed Kurbanaliev: 2013 World bronze (65kg), 2016 World champ (70kg) No. 11 Jordan Oliver No. 16 Frank Molinaro No. 3 (61kg) Masoud Esmailpour: 2013 World bronze (61kg), 2014 World silver (61kg) No. 7 (61kg) Akhmed Chakaev: 2016 World bronze (61kg) No. 17 (70kg) Zaurbek Sidakov No. 7 (70kg) Magomedmurad Gadzhiev Alexander Kontoev: 2001 World bronze (55kg) Zaur Botaev: 2002 World bronze medalist Having gone over the impressive resume of Metcalf, let's take a deeper look at what caused him to come up short at the world championships.
     
    2010In Metcalf's world championship debut, his first match was against Georgian buzzsaw and four-time world/Olympic medalist Otar Tushishvili, who beat Metcalf by a score of 3-2. Tushishvili was eliminated in his next match by eventual fifth-place finisher Buyanjav Batozirg of Mongolia, and Metcalf was eliminated from competition.
     
    2013In his first match, Metcalf was matched up against two-time world champion Mehdi Teghavi of Iran. Metcalf lost the match to Teghavi 5-2, and when Teghavi was upset 3-2 by Alexander Kontoev of Belarus, Metcalf was eliminated from competition. Even more frustrating is the fact Metcalf had beaten Kontoev twice that year, at the Yarygin and the World Cup. 
     
    2014After winning his first match by tech over Seong-Bum Park of Korea, Metcalf met up with eventual fifth-place finisher Mustafa Kaya of Turkey. Metcalf lost a close, controversial match to Kaya by a score of 7-4, and when Kaya was beaten in the semifinals by Sayed Ahmed Mohammadi of Iran, Metcalf was eliminated from competition. Especially frustrating for Metcalf, was the fact he beat the eventual world champ Soslan Ramonov the year before at the Yarygin. 
     
    2015After winning his first two matches, Metcalf met up in the round of 16 against returning world runner-up and Iranian Sayed Ahmed Mohammadi, who was ranked No. 1 at the time. Although he was able to mount a late comeback, Metcalf ultimately lost to Mohmmadi by a score of 5-4. When Mohammadi was pinned by eventual world champ Frank Chamizo of Italy, Metcalf was eliminated from competition.

    What were Metcalf's best wins against elite competitors, and how did those guys rank or finish at Worlds during that time?  I know he competed in multiple world championships (was it two or three?) and never won Yarygin (finishing second twice I think).   My sense is that Taylor's wins internationally are much better than Metcalf's, but perhaps you can illuminate us a bit.

    Garrett seems like a likable guy with an entertaining, if vulnerable, freestyle game.  Can't see any reason why someone would dislike him, especially given what he has gone through.  On the other hand, while he has won one NCAA title, he doesn't have any significant international wins and so he hasn't earned the "love" of many fans yet.

    Along with the coaches and perhaps Ed Ruth, Taylor is probably the person most responsible for setting the Penn State program on a wildfire run and in the process encouraging a free, high attack, high scoring, and very entertaining style of wrestling.   Other guys like Nolf stand on his shoulders, just as Taylor stands on Sanderson's.   If folks can't get over a pretty singular impassioned error of judgment, well then there is no forgiving a whole slew of others who have arguably been more recidivistic, obnoxious and malicious on or off the mat: Gilman, Metcalf, DeSanto, Brands, etc.
