  1. Does he have any desire to be a college coach? If he wins olympic gold maybe someone backs up the brinks truck to hire him.
  2. I agree that Dake staying is critical. I don't think Koll could have kept it up at that level without Dake. Dake is one of a kind and one of the most successful wrestlers in US history. His name was huge for them in every possible way.
  3. This is absurd. He was the absolute aggressor on his feet in every NCAA match and was never taken down. Only Warner wrestled him even on his feet at NCAAs (and only Adams took him down all season). In the only match where a ref called his repeated dropping to the leg (finals match), he just stopped doing it and continued winning in neutral. He wrecked the field in neutral and stalled on top. You can call him instantly on top and it just means more of Ferrari beating guys on his feet. Your point about the field missing guys is correct, but the idea that he won on officiating is delusional fantasy.
  4. This thread is full of people wishing Ferrari would go up 80 lbs. to face the best college wrestler on the planet. That's because even the people who hate him and want to see him crushed know it would take Steveson to do it. It'd be like people talking trash against Spencer Lee by saying they wanted to see Nate Carr crush him. The very idea is testimony of how good Ferrari was as a true freshman (and how obnoxious he is).
  5. Anything new is bad.
  6. yep. That dad needs to stop whatever he's doing to help his sons go to college and succeed. Obviously Ferarri's an idiot, but acting like he's somehow a bad kid for winning everything and celebrating himself while doing it is funny. Most of his peers probably celebrate themselves just as much for winning a video game.
  7. They aren't being sued for providing an opportunity. They are explicitly being sued for not providing the opportunity after saying they intended to. I have no idea if the suit is merited or if it will succeed, but you have misrepresented it to an alarming degree.
  8. You're describing a true 2nd best in the world event. The best in the world already make the olympics and world championships. Those tournaments are bad at figuring out who is 2nd and 3rd best, but they are very good at figuring out who is the best.
  9. I guess it's technically the same if they fill from the bottom, but the olympics has no lopsided bracket and uses seeds. This is no seeds and lopsided.
  10. Idiotic. The olympics does not do brackets this way so an olympic qualifier shouldn't either. This tournament is not tied to the world championships and shouldn't be using the worlds' bracketing model.
  11. Has there been unequal treatment? Does anyone know if the men got paid? Did men or women get treated unequally regarding invoices, time frame, and such? I think it's far more likely Flo is cheap and tries to avoid paying for as long as possible then Flo doesn't pay bills to men and women the same way. I know how hard I had to fight to get money back from them a few years ago, and I don't think they cared if I was a man or a woman when they were trying to screw me.
  12. I agree that nobody was going far enough. We simply can't stand for this kind of behavior.
  13. He got too excited after a win? Let's start the petition to have him removed.
  14. He qualified to represent the USA. JB did not. You can attempt to spin it any way you want, but the guy who qualified to represent the USA is more deserving of going to the olympics.
  15. He absolutely does. He won the qualification while JB lost. That's a very easy one.
  16. This doesn't explain the study because those are preexisting conditions that didn't start when they invested in crypto.
  17. Mizzou wasn't upset over Texas' special treatment? They didn't try to go to the Big 10 first? TobusRex is obnoxious but it seems like he sprinkled in some truths with his lies.
  18. Super impressive list right there. I actually think I remember reading an article about how Nebraska went to the Big Ten to challenge their Tennis program, so this is important stuff.
  19. 99.5 to 64. What event was that again?
  20. Awesome for Mizzou and awesome for the Big 12.
  21. What do I care if he poked him in the eye? I called him a heel. Do you want me to detail all the ways he was physical? You've completely invented this story that I am denying stuff. Rosholt poked him in the eye. He ground his face in the mat near the edge after a sprawl. His early takedowns were entirely too hard. I agree with you Rosholt did all that stuff and Davis retaliated. You are tilting at windmills right now for absolutely zero reason.
  22. You're being super weird about this one. I suggested Rosholt as a heel and said the reason was how physical a style he wrestled. My initial description before you got involved even included me saying Rosholt dribbled his head off that mat. From that you took the idea that I will never admit he did anything that warrants retaliation. I also posted that I agreed with you and there are no different versions of events. Rosholt was physical and since Davis was losing anyways, he tried to punch him for it. You took that and said you can only tell me I'm wrong so many times. I have no idea what your problem is here, but it clearly has nothing to do with me.
  23. That's my point. There are no different versions. There is no Oklahoma State version like you said. Rosholt was physical. Davis didn't like it and threw a punch. If Davis was winning or close in the match he never considers the punch. He didn't like getting beat and getting beat up. Most guys don't.
  24. Your version is he got poked in the eye. Unless you think Rosholt went 3 stooges and poked him on purpose, I'm not sure where you come up different versions. Both guys got physical and the losing guy didn't like it and threw a punch. There is no debate which guy was wrong even if you think there was an eye poke in there. Either way Rosholt was a very physical wrestler who always won in March, and combined with the color of his singlet made him a heel in his day.
  25. Like I said, I loved it. But OSU was the dominant team winning their 3rd(?) straight team title, he was one of 5 individual champs (so they won the title and the night), and he was the easiest guy to hate on that fantastic team. So when he celebrated you either loved it or hated it, depending on whether you were wearing Cowboy orange or not.
