  1. He probably would have benefited under the current rules, wasnt he active during the wonderful ball grab era?
  2. Has that literally ever happened to Nolf? Not even the tech, but getting tossed like that...even for Dake that was crazy impressive.
  3. And my wife tells me I'd be a bad gambler.
  4. I think there's a 0% Nolf could take Dake in a best of 3, but a one match steal...I'm just apprehensive about it. The people need to see JB vs Dake lol! I expect Nolf not engaging and making Dake chase a bit, similar to how Starocci wound up beating Kem.
  5. As a Dake fan this Nolf matchup scares me. PSU has been so fantastic at gameplanning recently. Feels like Nolf will try and keep it close and steal something late after wearing him down with Nolf-Cardio. The initial matchup a while back now seems like a purposeful test of the waters.
  6. Spencer Lee seemed annoyed today which was new. Could not tell if he was irritated with Brands for that phony hat thing that seemed purely to look good on tv. Also could be because he was sacrificed for an Iowa team title and his Olympic dreams took a hit at least for this cycle. Either way it sucks to see him not chipper and healthy. Personally I would've rather seen him at the trails during a redshirt than having that 3rd title, but that's only because I think he'd medal. I've never seen a team title win like this, Iowa seems very unwell despite the success.
  7. What? If a random person tells you casually they're going to kill you it's not exactly normal. Given everything else we know about the dude..cmon man.
  8. Regardless if the top man retains control, he has still showed a dominant motion and should be rewarded in some way. We should start awarding 2 for this, not quite the freestyle 4, but enough to reward someone forcing action and taking risk. Inspired by the Cenzo match which I could watch forever.
  9. Hall has been fighting the HEW for a long while now and overachieving. Him going 1,2,2,1 is fantastic considering I feel like he's been burnt out since year 1.
  10. As in Dake has to wrestle the tournament winner. Then the winner of that match wrestles JB. Seems more than fair.
  11. Wouldn't this make more sense if we just gave current World Champions a bye to the Tourney Finals (provided you come from a non-olympic weight)? I don't see why they chose to make this so convoluted.
  12. 1. Desanto was injured. 2. RBY did nothing dirty. For what it's worth, I sure thought it looked like RBY had that position scouted extremely well and executed swiftly. I also thought Desanto's knee popped out on the first cradle. Thought Brands shouldn't have told him to suck it up and shouldve protected his guy. Desanto is a pitbull, he isn't going down if it wasn't legit. Didn't find it dirty at all, just wrestling.
  13. This is brilliant if it's a tactic to get Ringer at off peak schedule.
  14. Would've been even cooler if he had an extra 30 or so seconds in the first so he would've stuck Mueller.
  15. The refs on the mat should not handle their own video reviews. They are biased innately. Why not just have a complete 3rd party do all the reviews? All they see is the action without context and make a call. Wouldn't even be hard to do this.
  16. If time wasn't out, I don't understand how it's possible that wasn't a takedown. Nolf fan, but wrestling fan first. Hidlay had that one.
  17. Hidlay just slayed a beast and had it taken away from him. Respect to Nolf for essentially admitting that, he was shellshocked as though he had lost regardless. He knew he wasn't the better man after that.
  18. How do you not challenge there if you're Mizzou? Is it not challengable?
  19. Pretty easy to be in this mode when Gomez threw himself to his back for 12 points lol.
  20. Delgado was extremely exciting during his first championship season. One of the quicker dudes ever and the only to ever OutMegaludis-Megaludis. He shouldn't be dinged for anything, injuries derailed stuff and he had to win a different way. Career 125s seem to always have shoulder issues, too much power in the frame.
  21. This is what I would classify as "fair." However, I'd also classify settling this with a Redshirt Senior the week of conference tourneys as "disgusting." Say what you will, you shouldn't do your people like that.
  22. I left this fight thinking that Askren was completely superior to Lawler. Askren got a little overzealous in his first takedown attempt, and paid dearly for it. I'd chalk that up to jitters. However, he took Lawlers best shots here, no question lesser fighters would've been done. After a slight recovery he pretty easily walked Lawler into the cage, got his TD and ended the fight. It felt like he could've done that all day. If anything, I think Lawler got lucky as he could've wound up looking worse.
