    Why would Rivera want to leave Northwestern? He’s been doing great. Something I don’t know about ?

    Comments:
    68kg I think Fadzaev was in a class by himself. Eight golds. Only non gold was up a weight and a narrow defeat by Kenny Monday. And it was close.
    90kg: Kharartsev was way better than Khadem in his prime even though he last to him after the Soviet Union broke up and he was getting older. I actually never saw Tadiashvilli. Weren't most of his medals at 90kg? I don't think he belongs in the 82kg category.
    74kg I think you have to throw in Monday as a contender, in his prime. But all things considered Satiev's 9 gold medals I don't think it's a question.

    The US boycott and subsequent Russia boycott killed many Olympic dreams and put an asterisk next to a lot of gold medals.

    Thanks for posting. He’s got a great way of presenting himself. Seems modest and no nonsense.

    One-thousand percent. Fadzaev met Monday at his absolute prime and was completely undersized. He came a hair’s breadth from beating him.

    I admit I haven't seen as much Khadem as Khadartsev, I will definitely check more of his videos out. 
    As for 74kg, I think that Satiev is definitely the man. I really wonder JB in his prime vs Monday in his prime. I mean watching Monday's wins for Schultz in the 88 trials made me think he'd have an edge over JB in his prime.

    I just re-watched the DT vs Yaz matches. It's uncanny how he horses DT around so easily in the first period and then gets wrecked. I don't get it.

    What about fairness to the next generation of wrestlers. If you add eligibility what happens to the commit who ends up riding the bench an extra year. We lost a year fellows, we can’t get it back cleanly. Something’s gotta give.

    BigTimeFan got a reaction from herma48852 in Spencer Lee Wins Hodge Trophy   
    A lot of his matches ended by tech fall. With a 3 point near fall then a match that went 17-0
    First period: 2 take down, 4 near fall, 4 more near fall  (10)
    Second period: Escape, takedown, 4 near fall (7)

    Would have gone 17-0

    First period: 2 take down, 3 near fall, 3 more near fall  (8)
    Second period: Escape, takedown, 3 near fall, 3 near fall (9)

    Even if he only scored 3 vs 4 in all near falls and got no extra nearfalls and if 200 of his 234 points were from nearfalls then he would have outscored his opponents 184-18.

    BigTimeFan reacted to MonagFam in Lots of Good (if you can get through some questionable audio) stuff on USA Wrestling's YouTube channel   
    This particular one from Terry Steiner, although five years or so old, was amazing.  I didn't even know of him before, but I've watched the last 17 minutes at least twice, because I had my wife watch it with me as well.
    A lot of things I never really considered.  I'm big on records and how many matches (heck, a few of my posts are more or less about that very thing), yet he puts it in a different perspective for me.

    BigTimeFan got a reaction from Peso in Lee Kemp   
    Great thread for a group that should be talking about NCAAs and the Olympic team trials. Sigh. 
     
    I watched the documentary a few weeks ago as well. I loved it. Who knew about his crazy first wife? Not me. Really unfortunate. Here’s a few things 
     
    1. I looked up his son at Fresno State. He had a winning record his freshman year but not a world beater. But I have faith. I love to see him develop into a force. I have this hope that he’s a late starter because of the nonsense with his mother and that he’s going to crush it. 
     
    2. Kemp’s match with Gable could be compared to when Sanderson came out of retirement and wrestled in the world team trials. Sanderson won and took fifth in the worlds but imagine if some eighteen year old beat him. That’s how fantastic Kemp’s win was. Instead Sanderson wrestled two time NCAA champ, hodge winner and world silver medalist Jake Herbert and crushed him.
