  1. I don’t think Uetake has an argument over Pat Smith (and yes I know these rankings are just based on math). Regardless of the circumstances, 4 titles is better than 3 even if the guy with 3 never had a chance for 4.
  2. How about compared to Downey?
  3. Doesn’t Amine supposedly have better common opponent results than a lot of those guys?
  4. Whoops good call on Cox. Yeah I guess Downey is probably the best non-NLWC American 86, especially after just seeing Martin vs Taylor. Although if Flo is putting it together Askren would probably want to see how Myles Amine does against Taylor. They haven’t wrestled have they?
  5. Wow so OSU has had 14 3x champs? That’s gotta be the most of any school right? Who would be next?
  6. Moody may not have gotten a scholarship, but maybe he was promised some slush fund money after graduation right? :-)
  7. How does that mean the football team killed it though?
  8. Maybe it’s senantics but I’m not sure if I’d call a lot of those people “rich.” Middle to upper middle class sure. I’ve always got the impression that while there are certainly a lot of families that spend a lot of money on wrestling, they don’t necessarily have much left over after that. I think the increased domination of private prep schools has more to do with them drawing from a larger geographic area than in the past and more poaching from kids that previously went to public school (NDGP, LHP, etc) than “private school kids” being a high % of the elite wrestlers. Plus schools like Blair (and likely even some more “traditional” private schools) offer scholarships.

  10. I’d go: 57: Gilman vs Lee 61: RBY vs Suriano 65: Lee vs Yianni 70: Zain vs Green 74: Gomez vs Burroughs 79: Nolf vs Dake 86: Taylor vs Cox 92: Nickal vs Zahid 97: Snyder vs Moore 125: Cassar vs Gwiz ...this would be cool for a future Flo event
  11. I don’t think most people would consider it a “rich white suburban sport” IMO
  12. They don’t win titles because they don’t have enough black wrestlers?
  13. Got it, makes sense. Although again I probably like it more for hopefully incentivizing scoring in the first period. Honestly I'm not as concerned with stalling at the end of tie matches. Even if the end of a 3rd period tied match can be boring, overtime is usually exciting (except for HS heavyweights).
  14. One downside is I think it said the TV money is "only" $15MM per year. So I guess when you spread that out across the schools and in theory the teams within the schools, it may not be as helpful as first thought
  15. https://frntofficesport.com/notre-dame-football-to-join-acc-for-2020-season-share-nbc-revenue/ Notre Dame joining ACC for 2020 season, and will share TV revenue from home games on NBC Hopefully this means no ACC schools will cut any sports...
  16. Fair enough, although again Willie - who presumably knows this guy and I believe may have commented somewhere about knowing something about this issue - also retweeted it, giving much more credibility to it than Mineo did. Although looking closer, it appears Mineo covered over the date which was actually 2019 - and looking it up it appears it says "declined to prosecute." But not sure how something from last year would allegedly result in a "2-week suspension" right now.
  17. I don't hate these. Making the first to score the criteria would likely solve the issue I mentioned of people often being overly cautious at the beginning of the first period. Although if the criteria is first to score, how does that "incentivize scoring at the end of the match"?
  18. I think I could give or take criteria. One argument I saw from Saturday was that it can definitely be confusing for people that aren't that familiar with the rules. But then again a lot of the rules are confusing anyway... I never really thought of wanting an activity clock until trying to think of an alternative solution for a stepout rule. But I think it would also help the issue of a lot of high level college matches not having a ton of action for the first 2 minutes and 30 seconds of the first period because it seems a lot of guys wait until the end of the period so that they can try to get a takedown + rideout since they don't want to give up the escape point. Of course the other option could be 3 point takedowns...
  19. I don't think this makes it like freestyle. The biggest difference between free/folk IMO is the exposure rules/par terre. I feel like wrestling on your feet is already pretty similar between free/folk anyway.
  20. So do they pay him or does he pay them?
  21. Just to be clear... Your takeaway from a Flo executive apparently being arrested for assaulting a family member, is that Mineo is a POS? (Besides, in the grand scheme of things Mineo is still fairly irrelevant. However Willie who has 6x the amount of followers retweeted this.)
  22. Of the wrestlers on Saturday, he was probably the least exciting one...
  23. Although speaking of Flo employee suspensions, what’s up with this?
  24. Seems like maybe he got “suspended” or something
  25. I'm confused...is Taylor going up to 97 if this year's worlds happen?
