    PhiferFuqua reacted to MedicineMan in Penn State VS Minnesota 2 pm 2/9/20   
    Yes, you are wrong, if you are mistaking the calm confidence for apathy....of course he cares, but the demeanor is part of his power, keeps him loose and therefore reacting quicker....plus it's a ploy that says to his opponent, "I don't consider you any kind of threat."  It's a dominating body language.  Vincenzo Joseph has the same type of poise, but a little more playful.

    PhiferFuqua got a reaction from DocBZ in Spey "defense" on FRL today was brutal   
    My favorite part of the FRL yesterday was Kyle Bratke's Flo defense, which went something like:
    "The reason Flo's rankings are better than anybody else's is because Flo has rules. They're not written down anywhere, and I can only think of two of them off the top of my head, but, believe me, we have rules and everybody knows them."

    You mean revenge on his revenge. Everyone seems to mention Moran beating Lee last year (in SV-2), but fail to mention that Lee turned around and majored Moran in Big Tens.
     
    And while Pletcher has looked amazing this year I still have to lean toward Lee.

    PhiferFuqua reacted to PSUMike in Post-Dogu Medal Chances   
    Factoring in the results from this weekend, where do we see everyone's chances.
     
    57 - Gilman
    Medal - 30%
    Gold - 0%
     
    Prior to this weekend, I wouldn't have given him as good of a chance but he's wrestling quite well. The field wasn't the strongest but he made it through unscathed which speaks to the level he's at right now. He's strong for the weight and good positionally. If he gets to his offense and stays aggressive, I like his chances. 
     
    61 - Garrett
    Medal - 5%
    Gold - 0%
     
    He's talented but too inconsistent match to match. He's a great athlete and a strong technician but can't put it all together when it matters and he's still green. His wild style makes for fun matches but against great technicians, they'll pick him apart. 
     
    65 - Steiber
    Medal - 5%
    Gold - 0%
     
    Too small and too inconsistent in a packed weight. Any confidence I once had in him has been destroyed by tepid results. He's not the future for the weight class. 
     
    70 - Green
    Medal - 60%
    Gold - 20%
     
    He has such a great shot and is one of the best from his feet but still has a tendency to take an odd loss here or there. I do think he's top 3 in the world at 70, especially now that Chamizo is up.
     
    74 - Burroughs
    Medal - 95%
    Gold - 50%
     
    I think he's a coin-flip with Chamizo. Can he finish cleanly against a defensive and scrambling juggernaut? That's the question. 
     
    79 - Dake
    Medal - 90%
    Gold - 40%
     
    He still has Gadz to get through but I think he cleanly beats everyone else. He's so strong, so positionally sound, and so good defensively that only the elite of the elite are going to keep it close with him. He needs to generate more offense off his own attacks but he can still play the counter game and throw people around to supplement. 
     
    86 - Taylor
    Medal - 90%
    Gold - 45%
     
    I think only Yazdani-Charati is on his level right now. If he can stay out of the collar ties and attack the legs early, I think he takes it. 
     
    92 - Cox
    Medal - 50%
    Gold - 30%
     
    He seems to put it all together when it matters but aside from his world results, he's been inconsistent. New weight in procedures and a new weight make me question how he'll do though. 
     
    97 - Snyder
    Medal - 99%
    Gold - 60%
     
    Regardless of the loss, he's still the cream of the crop. Not much else to say. 
     
    HWT - Gwiz
    Medal - 50%
    Gold - 0%
     
    He's not gonna beat Geno or Taha but despite the loss this weekend, I think he's wrestling better than he has been in his career.

    https://www.eveningsun.com/story/sports/college/2016/03/14/new-oxford-grad-conaway-set-ncaa-meet/81533266/
     
    The phones in the Conaway house kept ringing the day after Liberty University announced it was dropping its varsity wrestling program in March 2011.
    One college coach after another called to reach Jordan Conaway, then a New Oxford senior not more than a month removed from winning the first state wrestling title in school history.
    As Conaway spoke on the phone with Nebraska wrestling coach Mark Manning, another phone rang in the other room. His dad and high school coach, Dave, answered.
    "Hello?" Dave said.
    "Is this Jordan Conaway?" a deep, commanding voice asked on the other end.
    "No, this is his dad," Dave responded.
    "This is Cael Sanderson," said the Penn State coach, whose name resonates with wrestlers the way the name Michael Jordan resonates with basketball players. Before leading the Nittany Lions to four national titles and counting as a coach, Sanderson went 159-0 during his college career and won four national championships at Iowa State from 1998-2002.
    Dave took the phone and sprinted into the other room to get Jordan's attention.
    “I’m thinking, 'This is the No. 1 guy in the country, you need to get off the phone,'” Dave Conaway remembers with a chuckle.

    PhiferFuqua reacted to JeanGuy in Does this mean Iowa challenges PSU this year, really?   
    In the preseason how do you rank guys with no NCAA experience? Everyone knew that Jason Nolf was going to be good as a RSFR, but I can't see ranking him above guys who have been there. Same this year PSU will have new guys at 125, 133, and 149 for sure. No matter how good you think RBY will be you can't pick him as a top 5 bonus machine. So I think it is fair that he not be ranked very high with a point expectation. Experience matters especially in the preseason rankings/projections.
     
    As a PSU fan I have no problem discounting the projected points. After the holiday tournaments everyone will know who is good and who isn't.
