    As a Burroughs fan, I’m hoping Nolf wins. I think Dake is great at game planning too and his focus has been on Burroughs. If Nolf wins, I think he isn’t as well prepared for Burroughs as dake would be. 

    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. 

  2. 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. 

  3. 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.

    How could they do this? Using 74 as an example, Dake and JB would just go directly to the best of 3. So no one else deserves to compete? Everyone else would simply be competing for the 3rd spot on the national team? I think this is the fairest method to reward those gold medals at what was considered to be weaker weights (79 and 92)

    As in Dake has to wrestle the tournament winner. Then the winner of that match wrestles JB. Seems more than fair.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.  

  7. 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.
