  1. So the process previously with the Open champ getting a bye to the finals of the WTT was a bit confusing, especially for someone who doesn’t watch wrestling. So instead of making it more simple, we do what we did this year?? We make more events and make it more confusing? I am a huge wrestling fan and they’ve lost me on this one. It’s impossible to keep up with. Another blunder by USA Wrestling.

    How about this "throwback"

    Or you could look at it as a display of poor sportsmanship...

    Why are colleges still wearing the singlet?

    A fair amount better. If I was overweight, I would be so embarrassed about my nipples popping out.

    You generally don’t change your mind in arguments on here so I don’t want to waste time and energy, but what I will say is that you are being naive about the sport. Wrestling is the hardest sport, but it doesn’t look like the hardest sport. It actually doesn’t look that hard at all. People are uncomfortable by the sport.

    I think you're seriously downplaying how homophobic we are as a society. There are definitely a fair amount of people who don't want to wrestle because they think it's homoerotic. Sad but true.
  6. I’m sure head coaches in college read this forum, any guesses on which of the major coaches read here? I’m sure even ones that don’t directly read here have someone that tells them certain things. I guarantee Tom Brands has someone who has eyes on the Hawkeyes forum.

    The fact that wrestling fans will argue that male camel toe does not impact participation and popularity just shows how stubborn they are.

    We need to eliminate male camel toe. It’s not a good look.
  9. Why have no schools adopted the rash guard and fight shorts uniform? I assume the rules have been passed for colleges as well. Our own stubbornness will kill this sport. The only feasible reasons are tradition and that people will grab onto the looser uniforms.

    Beat the Streets was a circus show

    Just because he is classy and one of the most respected wrestler doesn’t mean he didn’t act with class this time. After the match he was in Chamizo’s face flexing and it rubbed me the wrong way. Then they interviewed both of them and he was very cordial, then out of nowhere afterwards he said “cut back down to 70”. You don’t need to rub someone’s face in the dirt after you defeat them. I understand emotions run high and this is an emotional sport but you have to separate that. It wasn’t the most classless thing in the world, but it was certainly the most classless thing I’ve ever seen Burroughs do.

    Fair point, it was still ridiculous. Easily preventable.

    That’s true, but at the same time, we need to be critical of what happens in our sport if we want it to progress. That was bush league, IMO.
  13. A. None of the other wrestlers seem to train hard for it. We win a lot of the matches at the end because we are in better shape at the time. B. Obvious home cooking by the refs. C. The mats being like an ice rink. What major sport would ever have the integrity of the sport compromised with an inadequate playing field? D. Burroughs showed little class in victory, wasn’t too happy with his behavior. Thoughts?
  14. People still believe "old man strength" is a thing?

    Why is our par terre so bad?

    What are the technical deficiencies that are stopping the U.S. from having good par terre?
