  1. This rings true, though I would remind everyone how much better his mat wrestling got at Iowa, so an optimist would hope he retained the ability to improve and has become a more dynamic wrestler on his feet. He has been shut down by the top guys, but he wouldn't need much more diversity of offense to be a hand full for anybody.
  2. You got me...i have no clue why they even have worlds.....
  3. Flo isn't competent to commentate folkstyle....greco is a stretch.
  4. Also, he has said that he weighed in 2 kilos under at worlds at 79k.....i think he was lying but he did say it!
  5. The taylor over dake morons are polluting other discussions....
  6. what a clever evasion from the argument!
  7. Hold on does Grey have an olympic gold? I have it on.....authority that the only thing that matters at all ever is the olympics.
  8. great move, agree with me then posture like you aren't so you can look cool on the forum or something...
  9. I already said he isn't the goat yet, but this is a stupid argument.
  10. because name dropping marable crushes burroughs in your opinion, and you have no frame of reference for the comparison
  11. you must know the name of the guy that smith lost to in his olympic pool
  12. the idiotic taylor over dake bias is a real thing...
  13. To be fair I think burroughs got two titles with 1 point Tds, but the point stands. With the pushout thing, Smith was way harder to underhook than JB, or at least way more dangerous too sense he had duck unders on both sides from there. Also, as far as being grounded goes, Smith was one of the few who could drop his butt straight down to mat and put it right between his heels....thats a hard guy to push out.
  14. I'll take a different tact....Smith is better because he has better par terre, shots from tie up, and changed the sport. Also think he would have been more dominant in an era of 2 point TDs.... But if burroughs picks up another gold, plus all the other medals, he's just plain outproduced smith and would be the goat.
  15. I assume its gonna be pretty straight forward. Snyder is gonna handfight his ass off and try to get that point, get Sad tired, I assume every shot will be to the hip, cause obviously the ankle stuff went horribly last time. I don't think anyone is learning a lot from that prediction but was wondering if anyone had other ideas. Whats Sad's strategy? Be better at wrestling?
  16. I don't think they care about that at all, i think the only issue is if the gangsters funding the program care about 2021 worlds
  17. I hadn't thought about this and its a real bitch of a confound in the discussion......
  18. I think it might not be true about their other olympic champs because they have an ultra elitist culture. they only guy who doesn't scoff at the rest of the world is the one who has to worry about being the best wrestler who ever lived. If another guy on the team could outpace Sad in terms of world and olympic titles by the time it was all done I bet they would be competing.
  19. I'd be curious about if their financial incentives were affected. My take on Saduleav is that he's holding down the p4p best on earth spot and for reasons of pride (good or bad) just can't bring himself to sit out a worlds, especially if he's chasing the greatest ever title.
  20. I don't not understand the impulse to make vapid, sneering remarks on behalf of people who didn't show up for a tournament....
