  1. He also qualified for the Olympics and if i remember correctly he missed weight.
  2. Thats one way to frame it. Another way is he lost twice to a first time starter who up until that point was a backup wrestler and had just as much NCAA post season experience as him.
  3. Jones, Cormier, Eggum, Trenge Synder also lost to Morgan McIntosh as well as Nathan Burak. Cael was indeed smaller than Snyder. Snyder was a 220lber in high school. Cael was 152-171. Yes Synder wrestled bigger guys than Cael. Synder was NOT undersized like you stated his freshman year. He wrestled 197 with losses. Furthermore, unless Synder weighed in at 197 or less, the disadvanatge you cry about would have been the case for ALL smaller heavyweights.. a fact you easily brush off. Its been said wehn Snyder was not cutting to 97k he weighs around 230ish. Hes not the only 230lb heavyweight. Hes not a 197lber in any way shape or form. Cael competed at 84k internationally, but according to you theyre the same size. Do you think Synder should be competing at 86k? Its also pretty obvious the guys Cael wrestled in NCAA competition were more athletic. You didnt watch wrestling during that era. You said it earlier. You dont know what you're talking about when it comes to critiquing Cael's active wrestling career. Still bummed you never started that kickstarter for last years NCAAs. I would have contributed.
  4. Synder was an undersized 197 lber his freshman year??? As for the weight advantage.. was Synder under 197? If not then the disadvantage you speak of exists for ALL smaller sized heavyweights. Its pretty well known that the larger you get in scale the weight advantage decreases, hence why the gaps between weight classes can increase grewtly as weight classes increase. And you think Cael "cut weight" because he wouldnt have been the odds on favorite? Cael was a 171lber his senior year of high school. In college he was 184, 184, 184, 197. He went up to 197 because 184 was too easy for him. You didnt even watch wrestling during Cael's era yet you make these claims.
  5. Desanto technician over physical freak? Lol
  6. Your opinion on how Gilman wrestles is solely based on the singlet he's wearing.
  7. Thats not eating crow. Thats changing your opinion. Eating crow is when you admit your opinion/prediction was wrong based on nonspeculative results. College level Synder beating or losing to Steveson will always be speciulative since it cant be proven one way or another.
  8. Ok, well i watched via the nbc sports app. The video feed labeled mat 2 had 57, 74, 86, 97, 125 while the feed labeled mat 3 had 65. Better?
  9. 65kg was the only MFS final held on mat 3..
  10. Taylor v Nickal looked like they were just drilling...
