  1. When a yokel and YouTube collide.
  2. Interesting perspective. Assuming nothing illegal is going on, my view is that people should spend their money however they want, no matter how arbitrary their reasons.
  3. I have no idea what “cancel culture” is, but I think people should be free to spend their money however they feel like spending it.
  4. My guesses... 125- Lee 133- Gross 141- Lee 149- Lee 157- Deakin 165- Marinelli 174- Hall 184- Zahid 197- Moore 285- Gable
  5. I can't predict how their future matches will go. All I know is that they're both incredibly tough, which is why everyone is talking about them.
  6. I believe Olympic gold medalist Daniel Igali competed for Simon Fraser University. But I don't know how good the training opportunities are in Canada today. It may not be good there. Academically, the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, and McGill University all have excellent reputations. Obviously, Canada has other great universities as well.
  7. It might be worth looking into college wrestling teams in Canada. I believe they compete in freestyle.
  8. I have no idea what the future has in store for RBY. But I do know he's a very impressive wrestler who continues to improve.
  9. If any topic deserves another thread, it’s this topic.
  10. Two takedowns in less than two minutes seems plenty offensive to me.
  11. I doubt a tap out rule would change the sport. It already functionally happens, as you acknowledge.
  12. I’m certainly not advocating for rule changes that would allow submission holds. I’m simply saying it might be a good safety precaution to allow any wrestler to tap out of a match at any time.
  13. Not at all. I just think it might be worth considering tapouts as an extra safety measure.
  14. Maybe tapouts should be allowed. If a wrestler thinks he’s about to be injured, why not give him the option to tap? Safety first seems like a good policy.
  15. I think it's very possible that ADS felt pain during the first cradle sequence. However, I doubt that he felt any additional pain during the second cradle sequence. Unfortunately, the fact that ADS complained of pain during the second sequence makes his complaint of pain during the first sequence seem more suspicious. But at the end of the day, ADS is a very tough student-athlete. I wish him all the best.
  16. I don’t know what’s best for any particular wrestler. All I’m saying is that there are times when quitting is the best option -- and that idea extends beyond wrestling to life in general.
  17. In general, there are times when quitting something is absolutely the best option. While you’re doing something you don’t enjoy or are not good at, you are giving up the chance to do something else you would enjoy or would be good at. Life is short.
  18. Agree. People forget that Dake wasn't very active from 2013 to 2017. As far as I know, the only tournaments he won between 2013 and 2017 were the 2014 Granma Cup and the 2017 Grand Prix of Paris. He also took losses during that period. Dake is now a 2x world champ, and could very well beat Burroughs at the OTTs this year. But even if he does, his career freestyle accomplishments will still be far behind Burroughs's. It's unfortunate that we can't send them both to Tokyo.
  19. Dake went 0-2 versus JB in 2013. Overall, Dake is 1-7 versus JB.
  20. Dake is actually 1-7 versus JB overall. At the world team trials matches, Dake is 1-6 versus JB. At the US Open, Dake is 0-1 versus JB.
  21. JB beat Dake at the 2017 US Open without a bye.
  22. I'm a HUGE Burroughs fan, but I'm nervous about Dake.
  23. Like a few others, I don't think Snyder was criticizing tOSU. He just wanted to get better, and he figured a different perspective would help. I'm glad he is open-minded enough to get a new perspective. I wish more people would be that open-minded.
