  1. https://mobile.twitter.com/mutigerstyle/status/1094103193057804288 I suck at linking tweets but here’s a crappy video of the pin from Brian Smith.
  2. Zahid had gotten two escapes in the first period so I think he was a bit overconfident.
  3. Mark Ellis Hwt for Mizzou never won a conference title.
  4. 1032004 posted an article on page 1 that clears up at lot of the confusion. Team was informed before the season regarding the rule and a couple kids (including this one) were specifically warned that they needed to cut their hair or get a cover that attaches to headgear. Sounds like the kid was also warned the weekend before, but allowed to wrestle with improper cover. IMO, the wrestler and his coach had plenty of time to get it right before this match.
  5. Pretty sure J’den Cox never gave up backs. Definitely wasn’t pinned though he did get DQd.
  6. Looks like Mizzou's 197 picked up a nice win over the 3 seed and 12th-ranked (FLO) Griego. I didn't see the match, but Koelling pinned him in the first period.
  7. I think I saw an interview and Jacques said he really didn't want to redshirt. He must be beating Fortuna and others in the room (and Mocco got injured beating Carr earlier this year).
  8. 10-4 and for what it's worth, I agree with you. Especially since Cox tends to wrestle everyone close, so there's always a chance for an upset. On another note, gotta wonder what Cox will do in 2020. Go back to 86 or up to 97?
  9. Gadsen has only beaten Cox once ever (3-1 in SV if you consider that controlled) when Gadsen was a RSJr and J'den was a true freshman. Cox's other loss that year was to Phil Wellington. They never faced each other again in college as Cox entered NCAAs undefeated as a sophmore and was beaten by Snyder and McIntosh. I guess I was also surprised that Kyven didn't see an easier path at 92kg, but I'm pretty sure the premise that he beat Cox twice and controlled the matches is flawed.
  10. He won 11-7. I think he was actually up 9-1 at one point.
  11. Lavallee and Erneste were given the most grief about their schedule and both made their critics look right. Eierman was never really in danger, but Headlee didn't do much so Jaydin tried a bunch of big moves at the end to try for bonus. Leeth actually looked good and was headed for a major until the 3rd period. Mizzou guys, outside of Lewis, have definitely been flat so far.
  12. Lavallee teched Monday at the South Beach duals this year so I’m guessing that would be a long shot.
  13. Me too. Looks like the options were limited as Norstrem made it with an 11-14 record. Tough deal for Akins from Buffalo as he wrestled better than Barlow all year, but lost to him at MACs.
  14. Lewis always seems to gas. He can get a takedown against just about anyone. If he can’t ride them, he struggles late in matches.
  15. It was pretty lopsided last year in UNIs favor. Mizzou’s guys better show up and look better than they did against SIUE.
  16. BTF, watch Heil's match against Gulibon in their dual last year. I think many would say that match was the impetus for the new danger rule as it was definitely the most well-known example. Heil spent a considerable amount of time on his back scrambling to avoid a takedown. Another good example is the D Lewis/IMar match from last year. In the first period Lewis gets in deep on a leg and IMar starts scrambling. IMar ends up on his back for over 5 seconds, looks pinned or close to it, but has a leg so no takedown. Because Lewis didn't have "control", the ref doesn't even look for the pin and calls a stalemate.
  17. I had the same issue when I streamed the FoxGo app through my Chromecast last night. Worked great on my iPhone but kept blinking backwards on the tv. Would love to know the fix.
  18. No worries, I heard the announcers say that too but they sounded confused and Lewis was on Smith’s leg so I figured they were wrong. The Fox video didn’t show the ref but I heard him saying in the background that he called stalling and figured that Lewis got dinged twice.
  19. That ref also gave Heil a 3 count to get up before calling the pin. Erneste should’ve picked top in the 3rd. Big mistake. Question. In that Brock/Erneste match, Brock let Erneste up and the ref called the escape before he turned to face him. So Brock immediately shot as he was turning and of course took him down. I thought Erneste should’ve been given a chance to face Brock before the escape was called? Any thoughts?
  20. I think Lewis actually got dinged for stalling twice in that exchange. Once for not returning Smith to the mat quick enough and then again for staying on the legs for over 5 seconds. Ref was very free with the stall calls on Mizzou.
  21. That was an interesting match. If I remember correctly, Lewis got the first couple takedowns and was up 8-0 after a couple guts. Tried a gut to finish the tech and Jacobe held Lewis on his back for two. Then the match went back and forth with Smith pulling it out. Seemed like Lewis was out of gas for the whole second period. If Lewis gets the first takedown again, I’m betting he’ll ride and dominate Smith. If it turns into a takedown battle, Smith will have a chance.

    I really can’t imagine Smith purposefully not putting the logo on singlets just to stick it to the MAC. He’s always spoke highly and appreciative of the conference. Maybe it’s an SEC legal thing?

    I didn’t see Myers in any of the South Beach pics. I’m guessing something is going on and we won’t see him again this year.
  24. Agree with this, Lewis almost always gets the first takedown, he just seems to have gas tank issues. Pretty sure he got a couple takedowns against BoJo at the 2016 NCAAs. Took Isaac Jordan down in the first period at the All Star last year. He nearly had IMar taken down in the first last year and it looked like he had him pinned when the ref inexplicably called a stalemate. He got the first takedown against Joseph at NCAAs and was in control of the match until the 3rd period when he was totally spent. Couldn't even run away with less than 20 seconds to go (hadn't been warned yet). Hopefully he won't have the same gas tank issues at 174, as I think he will be pretty competitive with the top 3.
