    dmm53 got a reaction from Cletus_Tucker in Bold Statement   
    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.

    I know what you mean, but i think his World Cup performance in Iran was unqualifiedly great.   And also an inkling of what he is capable of.

    In multiple email responses I've received, Flo keeps promising they will return to allowing comments on their articles.   It has been a year now and nothing has been done.  Like all authoritarian organizations, they can't stand critique or challenges.

    It was a pretty boring evening.   No 3rd matches.   One upset in  the womens' matches.  Terrible cutaways by flo.  Pathetic in fact.  Cautious matches by green and gilman.

    Wake up f-in FLO.  NO ONE wants to see a cut away to a child or coach or fan in the middle of the match.  Fire the camera person or whoever made those calls.  Im 100 percent serious, you fools

    Just now getting to the message board but I'm glad somebody else noticed it. I was watching the second Burroughs-Martinez match and right during the first takedown of the match Flo flipped over to one of Jordan's kids. What the **** is that? It's bad enough you get choppy reception and now they're flipping over to people in the stands. Who's directing the thing Stevie Wonder?

    Speaking of Wade Schalles, here is an interesting article about him from Sports Illustrated in 1976.   It's easy to see him as a precursor to Ben Askren, among others.  The article also highlights how much money was (still is) and issue with amateur wrestling:

    Okay; I get the attempt at humor., even if there is no real top of the food chain.  A fundamental law of ecology is that your ass is somebody else's meal.  The mosquitos, worms, viruses, and earthen bugs (the little things that run the world) will ultimately have the last laugh.
