  1. 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.
  2. Just a note. Cejudo won the Olympics and Pico didn’t make USA team, losing to a guy that didn’t medal. Cejudo deserves more respect than that. Although Pico was great probably not at the same level
  3. I’ve seen that angle several times as well and if you read, I said from that angle it appears it’s Yianni’s move. And I took all angles into account when I recreated it. I wanted Yianni to win that match. As I said I think it should be scored 2-2 and Yianni winning. What I can’t see is 2-0 Yianni as some have said. Also editing your post when someone had quoted it right below is an odd move.
  4. You need to chill, where did I say it can’t be done? You are having an argument with stuff I didn’t even say. I said I tried it and I recommend you try it. I’m sorry if you are so one sided you can’t have a conversation.
  5. In response to “have you even wrestled??” Yes a state champ and above .500 Big ten wrestler(mostly as a reserve though) I did this situation today with me as Yianni(and my left leg bent back) I had zero power to pull someone over. I recommend putting yourself in Yianni’s position and feeling it. The other person was very easily able to create the move by pushing off with the left leg and hooking my heel.
  6. When I watched the first angle I thought it was Yianni’s move. But from this angle it appears to me Zain pushes with his left foot and he regrabs the heel to initiate the move. Yianni’s left foot and knee don’t look to be in position to push off of. At least not for a normal human ( which Yianni may not be). But it does appear Yianni rolls Zain through to me also. So I don’t know the rules well enough. Looks like 2 & 2 to me. But I could see 2-0 Zain. https://twitter.com/sockobuw/status/1137537809072492544?s=21
  7. I had him in the semis, being he had beat Zavatsky many times. Just felt you were not giving Foster his due, kid is a beast But yeah I agree with this year. I took this thread as prior to this year, not as prior to the NCAA tournament. Cassar obviously had a great year and had a far greater chance to win NCAAs leading up to the tournament.
  8. From what I heard he lost 2 wrestle offs to Shakur. From memory the last one was like 7-3 or 6-3.
  9. You are joking right?? Foster placed 7th two years ago beating Zavatsky, Macchiavelo, Nate Jackson and only losing to Myles Martin 8-6. Last year he was the 8 seed and his losses came to Max Dean and Parker. Foster has been very solid for 3 years. Although Cassar did have the big win over Moore. But he lost to Garrett Hoffman last year. I repeat he lost to Garrett Hoffman. Along with Holshlag and he lost his wrestle off to a guy that didn’t AA this year at 184. While Foster was placing two years Cassar wasn’t on the team. Many thought he was done. If we are just talking about this year than yeah Foster is a more unlikely champ. But at any other point in college it’s Cassar by far.

  11. Not really sure exactly why I first started trying it. But I think my original thought was I’m not as athletic as most people but I’m pretty smart so I thought I could learn all shots to both sides. The deciding moment came when I wrestled one of our states best wrestlers( 1 of only a few 4xers in our state). The first period I wrestled right leg lead and he got in deep a few times and I wasn’t close to scoring. So I switched in the 2nd and 3rd and did quite a bit better. So I was leaning towards leading left leg. Later that year I wrestled him in the freestyle state finals and scored the first couple tds and got the better of him on our feet although he scored late and got a couple guts to win the match. That sealed it. Ultimatey I think my offense and pace were better than my defense. So being able to get to my single more often kept guys on their toes. It also forced me to be better at handfighting and use both hands. In college I had to learn to have a good shin whizzer defense because guys could get to my front ankle somewhat easy. I think guys that lead left leg in college have to have great head level defense and down blocks to keep guys off their front leg.
  12. So I’m in a good position to answer this. I wrestled right leg lead up until my sophomore year of HS then I switched to left leg lead for the remainder of HS and college. The main difference for offense is the ease to getting to a single leg. A lot of the time you don’t need a set up and can just be more based on timing.( ala Logan Stieber) It’s obviously harder to get to your high crotch and I found unless I hit it off an elbow pass or underhook I couldn’t get to it. Although I did get quite good at getting to it off the underhook and guys aren’t used to fighting off a high crotch to their left leg. Made finishing a lot easier. The big big difference on defense is you have to be very disciplined with closing the gap and not reaching. If you reach to close the gap you’re getting single legged by a good wrestler. Hand fighting can be a big advantage as most people don’t handfight well with their left hand. If you can win the handfight with your left on their right most guys are lost. So being dominate with the left gives you a chance to win that side.
  13. I mean they wrestled last year at nationals and it was 6-3. White is quite a bit better this year. I don’t think it’s much more than that.
  14. Among the group I was watching the finals with we brought this up several times. Not sure how you can AA in division 1 as a part time wrestler. Very impressive!
  15. How is Gable better on his feet if he is less disciplined, less conditioned, less technically sound, and less polished? Those are the things I would use to describe someone that is better on their feet. I would say Cassar is also more athletic.
  16. I think Cassar should transition to WWE. He seems perfect for it. Good on the mic. Super athletic. Could see him jumping off the top rope in no time!
  17. I would say Steveson is far from one of the bigger heavyweights. Did you see him next to Stoll? It’s reported he weighs 250ish which would be pretty middle ground. He could stand to added some muscle. But I don’t think his lack of muscle was why he lost. His strategy changed once he got a lead. Maybe because like you said he gassed.
  18. You are missing a bit here with Football. 11 starters on offense and 11 starters on defense. Plus kicker, punter and long snapper. So roughly 25 “starters”. Basketball starters are different than wresting starters. The first three guys off the bench get significant playing time. Even in the national tournament. In wresting non-starters get zero playing time in the national tournament. So a more fair comparison would be like 8 basketball players, could be considered “starters”.
  19. Don’t think Cenzo will have to beat Zahid this weekend.
  20. Indiana 125: Hildebrandt #13 133: Micic #2 141: Lee #3 149: n/a 157:n/a 165:McCormick #24 174:Lydy #11 184:n/a 197: 285: Parris #5
  21. 3- Spencer Lee 3- Zahid Valencia 3- Gable Steveson
  22. I say around 35% I have him losing in the Round of 12
