  1. 125: Connoway dec. Brancale 3-0 PSU

    133: Dardanes dec. Gulibon 3-3 - may be one of the top 3 matches of the evening

    141: Dardanes dec. Moss 6-3 Minny

    149: Beitz dec. Short 6-6

    157: Ness major Alton 10-6 Minny (wonder if Cael will start Alton in this dual)

    165: Hammon dec. Wanzek 10-9 Minny

    174: Storley dec. Brown 13-9 Minny - match of the evening IMO. Could easily go either way.

  2. Don't get your feelings hurt brother I wasn't saying you are ducking anyone if its not one thing then its another it would be good for the casual fan and the sport to create some of these matches the purest attitude is ultimately hurting the sport of wrestling from growing. These guys compete 1 or 2 times a year some years that is not enough for fans to rally behind a sport and grow it. Askren is obviously trying to self promote but also trying to grow the sport he loves. Dake or Taylor or even JB stepping up and wrestling guys like Askren would benefit everyone down the road.

  3. I don't understand why Taylor would not "be interested" in winning a World University Games Title. He was interested a year ago. He doesn't have any other world titles. So why wouldn't he be interested. I know he did not compete for it. But I wonder why not?


    I don't think he would expect you to understand. I would venture to say not competing this year would be pretty compelling evidence his interest in it has declined.


    Are you trying to imply Taylor would not have been the very heavy favorite to win despite a much inferior oponent winning?


    Again props to Caldwell but David Taylor he is not.

  4. Ok TF will solve this debate.


    Most Successful - Snyder

    Least Successful - Chisko

    First to win a title-Snyder

    Last one to AA-McKenna

    Most Likely to win 4 titles-Snyder

    Most Likely to never AA- Chisko

    Most likely to 4xAA but no title-Nolf

    More AA honors-PSU more titles PSU despite Snyder prob being the best of the lot

    Better Career-Nolf over Chisko Jordan over Brill Nevills over Haines

  5. If the public does go off the board this year, I wouldn't be surprised if Thompson from UAlbany (lacrosse) wins.


    I could see that. The kid has just been destroyed lacrosse scoring the last two years and also just became the first ever Native American to ever win the sports Tewaaraton Trophy (Lacrosse's Heisman). I'd think that a lot of people who actually look past the famous names of the main stream sports have to be looking his way.


    How does being Native American black red white or orange have any bering on best male athlete. Your either the best or you are not.

  6. Wow, another fantasy title for DT!


    I would think that his real titles would be enough.


    I wouldn't so much call it fantasy unless you have something going on you would rather not discuss. Thats like saying Dake only beats Taylor in fantasy match ups. DT is undefeated against Caldwell and has several very recent wins decisively.

  7. If I had to guess I would say Caldwell has lots of things Taylor is not that interested in. One being a University Title I don't think anyone would dispute DT would have won this year had he chose too. Taylor has his eyes on a different prize at the moment.


    Lets still give props to Tyler this Title is a heck of an accomplishment!

  8. Does Ben go too far with his tweets? Now he is calling out Johnny Hendricks on Twitter. For the most part, I like Ben and understand that he is marketing himself. I assume that Ben is signed to a contract with his current employer. Would there be a clause that would allow him to take a UFC fight if offered? It's cool that Ben can make a good living as an athlete but Ben was not signed to the UFC for a reason. His call outs are becoming somewhat pathetic.


    Ben was not signed to a deal because he is actually to good at what he does. Dana wants guys that kickbox as Ben says "I don't care if you know what I'm going to do" "I'm going to walk across the ring grab you throw you to the ground and then punch you in the face" "I'm that damn good at what I do" For the most part Ben is right he is so damn good at what he can do that it elimates the unknown aka excitement I think Dana looks for.

  9. Askren is dealing with his increasing irrelevance in the sport by


    1- Calling people wussies

    2- playing the monkey to Disabato's accordion

    3- calling out (insert, begging) Kyle Dake to wrestle him.


    sad times


    1. Call a spade a spade we live in a society where the truth is wrong.

    2.Ben has been a great promoter of wrestling and himself something few can do. He is great for the sport entertaining to watch and has a skill set that puts him among the best in world. You may disagree with an individual but should not be so quick to criticize someone who took promoted wrestling in front of millions Bellator undefeated Champ.

    3. He is a competitor and I truly believe feels he could beat Dake. If you thought you could beat one of the best in the sport wouldn't you try to make it happen and make it happen in front of a large audience? Truth be told I would not be surprised to see Ben beat Dake in a folk match at a catch weight and that is no knock on Kyle I love dake despite my signature!

  10. [q] Isn't Pico right around .500 or just a shade better this year on the junior circuit? I know he has 3 or 4 losses not sure what his win total is.[/q]


    troll alert! Proceed at your own risk! Be aware all responses merely validate troll-ishness.




    maybe a little trollish but I am actually curious now what is Picos record this year on the junior circuit?
