    dmm53 got a reaction from Cletus_Tucker in Hodge update   
    It's folkstyle not freestyle.  Sorry, but Snyder is not in the same league.  He has zero top or bottom game compared to Retherford, Nolf, Nickal, Hall or Joseph.   Snyder is super strong but doesn't have the great creative skills of some of these other guys.  There is much greater competition nationally and internationally at the lighter and middle weights than the heavy weights, where guys play football and other sports.  That is a fact.  Snyder is a great athlete but he is nowhere near the best folkstyle wrestler even if he wrestled a whole season.

    With his team desperately needing bonus points in the dual of the year, Zain Retherford beats the sixth ranked 149 pounder in the country by 15.

    Even the tOSU fans have to admit the Hodge race ended tonight, don’t they?

    Yes, he has thoroughly internalized and likely even spiritualized the Iowa-style and Brands' brand of wrestling. And he is beginning to push it to—and given time probably past—the limit of the permissible, as did his predecessors: Gilman, Ramos, Evans, and numerous others.   Frankly, he doesn't look like the sharpest tool in the shed.

    You get the real sense that Rutgers knew they couldn't beat Penn State on the mat and at wrestling so they tried to turn the dual into an MMA match.

    No shoulder harness. He mostly worked with Russian ties and tried for the slide by.  He got a 4 but I missed seeing it.

    Additional Announcements

On January 1, 2019 the allowance will no longer be available. The Olympic qualification system was approved, with the World Championships (6), Continental qualifiers (8) and a World Open (2) accounting for the 16 allotments. Continental championships will also be held. Cadet and Schoolboy weight categories have been approved. They will be released in the coming days. Four-year referee education plan was approved. The plan runs from 2017-2021 Scoreboards to count down from 6 minutes to 0. Cautions are now 1-point. A new rule book will be published shortly and placed on the website

    Did you mean to say that Rutgers will not send out a team to face Penn State?  There is an "I" in Suriano but none in "Team".

    1. Penn State vs. Ohio State (the dual meet and then NCAAs)

    1.  Big battles looming:  Nato vs. Lee vs. Suriano vs. Cruz, Nickal vs. Martin, Nolf vs. Kemerer, Joseph vs IMar, Hall vs. Valencia
    2.  Can Retherford be the first wrestler to bonus everyone in a single year (don't think that anyone has ever accomplished that; have they?)
    3.  Gross vs. Meredith
    4.  141 crazy competitiveness
    5.  The emergence of guys like Rasheed, Nick Lee, Pletcher, Marinelli, and S. Lee  as they affect team title  and podium chases
    6.  Freshman studs: Yianni, S. Lee, Hidlay, Darmstadt, N. Lee, LaMont, Rivera, DeSanto, Marinelli, Deakin, Wick, Venz, Renteria
     
    Other:
    1.  Non-stories:  how the new scrambling rules haven't (yet) created controversies    [PD3?]
    2.  Transfers and their impact:  Suriano, Storr, McKenna, Campbell, Kuhn (potentially)

    Sounds like it could be a good one if it happens.  But, truth be told, it is bolder to challenge a guy up in weight rather than below.
