  1. If you watch them compete you can see the improvement. Even in their losses (individually, and as a team) you can see the improvement. I believe they can become somewhat competitive in time. Somewhere in line with what youve seen from Lock haven. Top 20-15 team with AAs here and there and a solid number of qualifiers. I think that would be great and is completely realistic down the road.
  2. I see him having a similar year to last, but with a higher finish. I could see him taking out one of the top 3 guys in each part of the season. One in a dual, one at Big tens, and another at NCAAs. Dont think/know if he can beat any of them more than once though. If he wound up between 2-4 at NCAAs I am not shocked at all. I believe he will win one before he graduates. Probably a multiple time finalist imo.
  3. I mean, they have been having an interesting/good year. They also had a wild weekend. Its not like Ben is on there talking about his involvement with the Program (which would honestly be an interesting discussion piece as he does not talk about it much at all.)
  4. I respectfully disagree. Simply because of bonus point potential
  5. omg he is such a riddler. Always keeping us guessing with his wrestling and now with this. So wacky !?!?!?!?
  6. Mattox to D2 SF State. Calling it now! Farm bet... Ill pay you when I get my farm..
  7. Interesting. Maybe Ive just not seen it. Ill do some digging!
  8. cool interview with Sam Herring up on flo now. Not much content other than the matches themselves. Seems to be a common theme as of late with Flo. Kind of a bummer. Last year I was really pleased with the amount of like Mic'd up content, and interviews. Hopefully they get back to that kind of stuff for big duals, and the post season.
  9. Real Woods vs Tariq Wilson possibly? That could be fireworks.
  10. Does Ben still coach for the WiscRTC? I never see/hear him promote or anything of the sort (I could just be missing it I guess) and he is never in anyones corners at these sr level events. Does his arrangement with UW just need him to run practice? He mentions "helping" a few times a week but other than that I feel that I hardly see anything from him in regard to his position with the WiscRTC.
  11. Well. Chad Red has made me consume my own text. That was a fun 20 seconds.
  12. Fair enough, I could see that. I think I might be projecting what I hope as opposed to what is most realistic. In any case I'm excited still. Nothing wrong with a good chess match.
  13. Has red winning 8-7. Ill take the 1 point margin the other way, with a higher score. I'll call it 12-11for Tariq. Cannot wait for that match.
  14. It was posed to me by a friend that the Bucks were kind of training through this dual in preparation for vegas. Im inclined to believe that, as Pletcher looked gassed similar to Sasso which is not typical of Pletcher. In any case, better now than in March. Im pumped for Vegas.
  15. I honestly spaced on the fact that Rokfin pays in Crypto currency.
  16. I think that Rofkin could have a tremendous impact/be highly valuable once College athletes are able to make $ off of their name likeness. If the language is correct (pretty vague right now to my understanding), an extremely popular wrestler could make their own profile, and provide exclusive content through their platform. That could be extremely valuable. Once that starts, I think you could potentially see some dominos fall and see some coaches do the same- that could potentially happen sooner even. Right now though, I personally cant see a reason why one would choose Rofkin over Flo for wrestling content. Sure, if you have the money maybe do both but I certainly dont have that kind of spare change.
  17. Who does it benefit more for them (Bull/Wick) to not wrestle? I gotta think Wick - he's not a one-trick pony by any means, but he is good in all positions, and very good on top. Bull is solid in all positions. I cannot imagine Bono gaming the dual like that, especially when they will need a win by Wick to win it.
  18. Fair enough. I guess I just expect/expected more offensive output. Closing the gap mainly via pushouts against JO as opposed to looking for a takedown is also something I kinda shrug at but thats also just part of the freestyle game. So it is what it is. I guess just as well - I agree with your perspective of his past performances. So to see him act the way he does when he is not able to do it is probably what's given me a bad outlook on the guy. Risky game, and when you're a high level athlete (which he is) you probably realize this is not a productive strategy long term. Idk.
  19. Hahah, ding ding ding. I did not. I had it up for school work while watching. So it's on me obviously.
  20. I definitely dislike him. He also did not looks good relative to his past performances.
  21. I guess it depends on the formatting of programs. If there is womens wrestling at say tOSU, NC State...etc. and they are marketed as well, or well enough then sure. A lot of the time youre a fan of an institution. So if your favorite institutions have a womens program and you enjoy the sport, I'm sure you'd follow it at least casually. I would, or at least I'd like to think I would.
  22. 57 - Gross is going to be a problem, especially as long as he keeps the weight cuts to an absolute minimum. NATO and Suriano are going to be close behind, and lets not forget about Lee, Fix, and Gilman. Plenty of other guys as well. 65- JO looked very, very good. McKenna looks much improved from the last time we saw him in FS. Henderson was impressive as well. Molinaro, even with a runner-up finish didnt look good imo. Plus, per the usual when he was not able to pull it together to win a match that was completely within his grasp he goes juice head and starts whining about something (whether it be the ref, the other guy, whatever). 74- This weight was fun to watch for sure. If the gap between IMar and Burroughs is as close as we think, where does the rest of the heap sit? Tommy Gantt was right there in the semis and looked solid all tournament. Nolf was seemingly putting it on Cenzo until the injury. Cenzo looked damn good as well. Massa looked solid. Im a bit puzzled by Marsteller, hope to see him on the mat more. When he is on I think he adds some serious depth to the weight. Other stuff: I cant remember if I've heard Bray's commentary before, but I enjoyed it yesterday (It was him, right? like 99% sure it was). Like him on FRL as well. I appreciate what Mike Malinconico brings to the table for Flo, the dude clearly loves the sport and has a wealth of knowledge in regard to the technical aspects. Behind the dirt is always fun/cool. He is someone who would be great for live radio commentating because he describes matches so well as they go. With that being said, I really do not enjoy his chatter or especially his interviews. Something about the way he talks to coaches/athletes. This is why I never listened to his podcast when it was going. I cant quite put my finger on it, but it's just a preference thing I suppose. Im sure plenty of people like the guy. Just not me. SImilar to how some people dont like Pyles, or Nomad or any individual. Who knows. Not a huge deal, just mute it when he's commentating obviously. My problem, not Flo's lol. The stream was really good. Had no issues. I will say though - it really bugged me that a match would start, I would literally watch two guys shake hands - then the screen goes black and I hear... "OOOO---OOOHH, LALALALALA" - The damn insurance(?) commercial pops onto the screen and I miss the first 10 seconds of a match. Whats up with that? I get that the ads are necessary, even if when you have premium but cmon. Over all - the Farrell was sick.
  23. No clue. I agree, we never really know what we're getting. Could be a match up thing, hard to say. I will say this, though. Despite the perception that he has Choked/been inconsistent in the post season he does always show up. 3rd as a Frosh, 4th as a Soph (An under performance, sure but losing to the same guy twice, while also beating several very game competitors.) and 2nd as a Junior (losing only to Nikal) is really solid.
