  1. Who cares? Entertaining dual to watch and what happened with the skin check is already irrelevant since dual wins have no relevance. The individual match results are all that matters later.
  2. I agree. It would be terrible if someone just assumed one doctor was right.
  3. Interesting. Lehigh announcers immediately said it was OSU by 4th criteria (they didn't mention what 4th criteria was). Did anyone on the sidelines know who won when the match ended or did it get sorted later? If it was later that's pretty embarrassing. Especially if OSU forfeited with a man available.
  4. Also it's interesting they are wrestling Montalvo at 184 and Geer at 197. Having a bunch of 197 wins is what screwed Geer and got him seeded 26 last year at 184. I guess they haven't learned that lesson yet. Or they value the dual win.
  5. Looks like it. I don't like OSU forfeiting there. The announcer said earlier they tried to weigh in two at 133 and one failed skin check. Not sure why the other didn't wrestle.
  6. Ugly ending. Picc gets 2 late TDs for the MD and then OSU forfeits 133 to make it 20-20 with criteria in their favor.
  7. Austin Harris could be the latest 197 backup to turn into a decent heavy. He clearly isn't good yet but there are tools. The big difference in the dual so far has been outclassed OSU guys (shomer and Harris) saving bonus points while Lehigh guys didn't at 184 and 197. Without Smith and GFeller wrestling Lehigh was favored but it doesn't look like they'll win.
  8. Your (Wit) thread got in my head.
  9. For a 2nd straight match a Lehigh guy does whatever is like 2 levels worse than gassing. Jakobsen was down 1-0 to Geer half way through the 2nd and then gave up 6 go behind TDs without resistance to lose by MD 14-5. And Geer scored the last one with :40 left. He could have had 3 more if he needed them.

  11. Lehigh announcer just declared Geer was a #26 seed who had one good weekend at Nationals and that's all his #6 ranking is based on. That's an interesting read of a 30-7 all-american season.
  12. Good dual so far. 141 Lehigh over Hone 149 Lewallen 4-0 157 Humphreys hammers Sheets 16-2 165 Witcraft 3-1 174 Kutler over Shomers 20-6 184 Montalvo was down 8-4 after 1. Weiler gassed bad and Montalvo was up 15-11 when he cranked him over from neutral for the 3rd period fall. OSU had zero chance without this match. 197 Geer bumped up right now. 12-11 OSU in the dual.
  13. I agree wholeheartedly the rules should be changed to allow college athletes to receive any financial compensation they can secure from any legal source. Let them use their likeness. Let them negotiate post graduate jobs and compensation. Let them benefit from their hard work just as much as the universities who train them. But I wholeheartedly disagree that cheating existing rules is okay. Changing archaic rules should happen. Cheating rules should not.
  14. The hyperbole in this post is off the charts. There is zero chance he ever dominates FS like he did NCAA wrestling. Nickal had a level of NCAA dominance that no FS wrestler ever has had. It's absurd to suggest. It's almost as absurd to suggest he could be the best par terre American ever with some training. He's already 23. At that age John Smith was taking apart the world and doing a lot of it with a leg lace from par terre that Nickal will never approach. I really don't understand the need to make an awesome win into the best win ever. Or to make a super exciting prospect into the best guy on Earth. Isn't it enough that Nickal just wrecked an age level world tournament? Can't that be celebrated without declaring him about to be the best ever?
  15. Bo needs to cut to 86 before you hand him hypothetical advantages over Cox at 86. Right now Bo's refusal to go his best weight class is a much bigger handicap than Cox's weight cut.
  16. I have no problem with a Nickal over Snyder prediction. I love Nickal and would definitely root for him there. If someone wants to make a wild prediction on his behalf (or anyone else's) more power to them. But to try to have some sports radio hot take about how you called it and you were right (when you weren't) and everyone else was wrong (when they weren't) is just being childish.
  17. So you called him over Cox, were completely wrong, and somehow today means you were right about him beating Snyder and anyone who thinks otherwise is ignorant? Does that sum it up?
  18. The national results also speak for themselves.
  19. Margin of victory is a terrible way to predict results. It blows my mind that guys still think winning by a lot is a great indicator of how good people are at winning.
  20. I don't care about Downey. I don't know who Rodriguez is. I don't care about grappling. I think it's great they did the match. I think anyone complaining about it is looking for their thing to complain about on the internet today.
  21. You started a thread about Smith's recruiting class being so good he should be fired if he doesn't win a title with them. Then you said recruits don't know who he is and they should replace him with a younger guy who can recruit better. Do you realize how dumb and contradictory those statements are?
  22. So your thought is that one of the best recruiting classes ever signed up with OSU because they like a character from a disney princess movie? I swear your idiocy knows no bounds.
  23. I explain it as some reason other than weight drop, since the weight drop hasn't happened yet. Whatever it is I hope it is turned around in the matches that count.
  24. The part where you equated the drop in performance last year to a weight cut that hasn't happened yet. It is very possible dropping the weight makes him wrestle worse in the future. But it has nothing to do with his prior RS performance anywhere except in your head.
  25. You're still just making stuff up. Wittlake projected as a 174 recruit and wrestled every one of his matches at 174 last year. He was not impressive but not terrible their. He may suck down to 165 to make the team this year and it may hurt his performance, but it has nothing to do with what's happened in the last 18 months. 0/10 troll job.
