  1. They also wrestled in the semis at the 2015 US nationals. I think the score was 4-3 Snyder.
  2. Yep and it’s not limited to that. We are half in on many different strategies. Are we stopping the virus? Are we going for herd immunity? Are we just trying to half ass keep it at bay? Waiting for a vaccine? And the lack of guidance for schools is ridiculous.
  3. I don't want to edit my post above. But with a team you have coaches and captains. When the goals are unclear it creates dissension which is what we have in our country. I was saying our goals of how to defeat this were unclear. The team doesn't set the goals the Coach and the Captains do.
  4. When did I say its all on Trump? I believe I said "This is on the President, the governors and to some extent mayors."
  5. How is this on congress in anyway? The congress passes laws. I guess if you are saying congress is at fault because of the relief package, but that wasn't the problem. This is on the President, the governors and to some extent mayors. They are the leaders of the people. The problem was with how we responded to the threat. You clearly are a Trump fan, which is fine. But if you don't see how he has made himself the face of this its hard to have a discussion. He put Pence in charge of the Covid task force then after 2 weeks he realized the press this could get and basically pushed Pence to the side. Then when people looked to Fauci he did the same. Then same to Birx. Until now its only Trump at the press conferences. Trump wanted to be the hero of this he should also take the hits. If you speak to people from other countries they view us as undisciplined with our response. Which to me as a wrestler is hard to take. To me the worst thing the President continues to do is say " It will just go away." as he continues to say. I view things as a team with a goal. If our goal is to defeat this like many countries are on the way to doing we can work together. But when the president continues to say it will just go away its hard to keep a team of 330 Million people disciplined.
  6. Were you in the room? Bc I wrestled with those guys at National training camps and that is far from what I remember. Even the weight class difference almost makes that laughable. 2002 Keque(Jose) was 103 and Angel was 112 with Alex at 130. Even in 2004 Keque was 119, Angel 130 and Alex 145.
  7. This would be pretty awesome if so. In 2014 at the Indiana state finals, high school senior Stevan Micic beat freshman Nick Lee. If Micic takes another redshirt, Nick Lee will graduate a year before Micic.
  8. I don’t disagree with your take. I’m referencing him saying the flu kills more people and not taking Covid19 more serious. But I would add if people don’t stay home while healthy. People will all get sick and be home or in the hospital at the same time being sick. Which would do the same thing to the economy but have far worse outcomes for those needing hospitalization.
  9. Hopefully you have changed your mind on this take. But if not, you mentioned 22k-55k deaths from the flu. Many epidemiologist have suggested if we don’t take drastic steps we could easily have 2 million deaths in the USA from Coronavirus.
  10. https://covidactnow.org/ I thought this was a very interesting website. It has state by state breakdowns of when the virus will peak.
  11. Saying Parris was losing is a bit disingenuous. It was 1-1. Zaire did have the “lead”. But scoring was even. Also I’m not sure the conclusion you are drawing is accurate. Parris doesn’t have a history of beating people then after they figure him out they beat him consistently. I think it’s more of a match up thing. Some people match up better against that style and some don’t. Zare’s style makes him vulnerable to that dump. Cassar and Conan Jennings for example are quite the opposite. I don’t see Zare stopping his right hand underhook the next time they meet. Which would make him open to it again. But I could be wrong.
  12. Any way to follow the tournament easily? Updated Brackets? Full results?
  13. I would say it’s very notable he started his career at 141 and the other three guys you mentioned started as 125s and only spent one year at 133. It’s also been discussed the cut to 133 is tough for him. I wouldn’t think that was the case for the other guys. Fix also has a tough cut to 57kg but is quite a bit shorter and has been around 125 for quite a while.
  14. I believe the problem arises from Dake’s First doctor note stating he can’t compete until August. After they set the date of the event he then brought forth a second note changing the date he can compete. I don’t see how others don’t see this as a problem, if this is indeed what happened. If they just randomly selected August 17th and he competed prior to it then there isn’t a problem.
