  1. Guys will bet on DT not being the same guy in 2020 - in fact they'll see it in the room before we do and a bunch of them will be lining up to take a shot at him. It's a far easier path than 97kg

    No they wouldn't... stop being a snowflake.

    Using the word Jap is no different than the rest of the world using the slang "yank" to describe Americans. There are valid reasons to dislike Gilman... this isn't one of them

    Is Nickal done now?

    Flat on his back & decked by Heflin. I guess Nick didn't get the memo to never go upper body with Bo

    Is Nickal done now?

    This notion of him being capable of going up to 97kg for 2020 and being ready to take out the likes of Snyder and Cox is silly. People got carried away with his NCAA success and somehow projected him moving up and dominating world class wrestlers. Plus I've never seen him quoted as saying that was his plan for 2020. His best bet is 86kg and hope that Taylor is not the same guy 9-10 months from now because there is a good chance he won't be 100% & Nickal can beat the likes of Downey, Martin, Heflin etc... without a doubt

    Isn't there a time limit on the review process?

    Final X Rutgers live thread

    The situations are completely different. It took Taylor 2 years to adjust and 86 had cleared out. At 97 Bo will be looking at both Cox and Snyder and no benefit of sitting out until Final X. As for Cassar... his only threat was a cocky true FR who couldn't finish the match in the 3rd.

    There is no way Bo is bumping to 97kg next cycle having weighed 87kg today. Taylor is gonna have a tough road back and 86kg is the easier path by far
  11. Just last summer Heflin had Bo on his back and did pin him... 2 maybe 3 times

    Cassar granted 2 more years!

    Be careful on BWI... rumor has it that the feds monitor that place for NAMBLA activities

    Hidlay had 2

    Wonder if we'll get the same level of frame by frame analysis, ref psychology, etc... from the PSU contingent that got for the RBY/Desanto match?

    The Cael factor at work. Nolf was beat

    Official List: Who is taking Moore over Nickal?

    Moore takes the cheese and gets caught in the mouse trap. Nickal with some sort of MMA sh!t he's been scheming up just for this match. Jim Gibbons told me so and therefore it's true

    If you are Zahid Valencia....

    It's implied in the 10lbs over weight statement. Same nonsense when Dake wrestled Molinaro except the conjecture was that Dake was around 165 by the time the finals rolled around and poor Frnk was a spot on 149. It's complete bull sh##. There is nothing stopping Mark Hall from putting on weight by Saturday. The fact is that Zahid is just a better wrestler. He should have two NCAA titles by now.

    If you are Zahid Valencia....

    Frankly this is same tripe that a certain fan base always seems to spew when their guy ends up on the losing end. First it was Kyle Dake, then Bo Jordan and now Zahid Valencia.. probably a few others I missed. It's complete nonsense. There are rules, everyone knows what they are and can make choices. There is no "unfair" advantage.

    Flowrestling. You absolutely suck

    Flo's knows three things: The people that invest in these matches are a captive audience Flo is the only game in town with no real competition other than Track Wrestling is a niche sport and will never be mainstream enough to support a mainstream value driven business model Therefore Flo can choose their own time table to upgrade their transport and production layer with no real penalty incurred from the customer
  21. Nick is now free... free to wrestle for 3rd by winning 6 more matches

    Updated Rules Needed for Torqued Knee in Neutral?

    Just don't hit the reply key next time, dip****

    Updated Rules Needed for Torqued Knee in Neutral?

    That's not even partially correct. There is a crossface or claw being applied at the same time the foot is being torqued so bailing out is not an option. Most of the time Zane (and others) are applying it they are grabbing the foot and more specifically the toe area and torquing it over at the same time they have a claw in. It a miracle that there aren't more pulled quads from that move. No wonder they ban it at the HS level. It's the definition of a submission move

    Updated Rules Needed for Torqued Knee in Neutral?

    If we are talking about eliminating grabbing a foot or ankle and applying side pressure it should not be legal whether it's happening in neutral or on top. You can't draw some arbitrary line and say that you can't grab and ankle/foot in a scramble because it potentially dangerous but then allow it in other positions.
