    That's the truth....

    "This guy won NCAAs as a freshman and a junior world gold.,.I expected .... "

    Your comment is 100% fair.

    Definitely never going to be the multiple time world champ some people expected, but he is solid

    yeah this is all in context.

    I mean how good is "that good".

    Not starting over Dake, JB, DT, or Zahid obviously.
    But he's somewhere in that next mix of guys. Just clearly behind those 4

    He's good just not Senior Level World Medalist good ... Maybe with opportunity and draw, he could eek out a bronze at 79kg or 86kg

    He's good just not USA 1st team good.

    yeah fair enough. I just think the tone a lot of people take on here is as if it's a mystery why he didn't just inherit a world team spot.

    I think we can all agree that all three things are true

    Oliver looks pretty when he attacks

    Rarely actually attacks

    Oliver is overrated as an international wrestler

    i don't like oliver but he's also old as hell. I give the guys with who've been wrestling at the senior level for 10 years some slack, or at least not freak out cause someone said something nice about them.

  4. Hasn't Cael been at it long enough to say his coaching tree sucks?

    Kidding aside, Cody, Cunningham, Varner are probably all ultra elite coaches...but Cael keeps em....or they are so good that they can afford to keep competing.

    Come to think of it, keeping guys around to train might hurt their coaching prospects. All these elite guys used to be doubling down as coaches/athletes, which is not ideal, but would a guy like Nolf, assuming he doesn't compete well, be competitive for a high paying college job if he wrestles through 2024? 

    Just pointing out things that might shrink the tree...

    his dad runs the RTC, and he's got Brent Metcalf for a great workout partner.

    I'm not trying to by obnoxious but I'm gonna restate this post from a cynical perspective. 

    "He's got one workout partner who is aging out, and he was bought off when he signed so why couldn't be bought off again."

    For the record I don't think he's gonna transfer, but I don't think anyone would be surprised.

    I also think it's higher but didn't want to overstate.  The point I was trying to make is that the posters hating on AV would get destroyed by him in a match.  The past national champs and AA's that post here aren't criticizing him.  They know how hard it is.

    I know numerous people of said status who criticize him without restraint....

    I wish people would stop bagging on Anthony.  His career may never measure up to Zahid's but he was still a 2x AA.  Better than 95% of the posters here.

    its kind of funny that you only  said 95% because I assume its higher.

    But people don't bag on him for not being good, they bag on him for quitting visibly and dramatically over and over. 

    Are we admirers of talent or effort?
