    Largest NCAA tournament venue ever... lowest attendance ever.  
    Can't wait to hear Terry berating officials, echoing across a silent, empty football stadium.

    It makes not one bit of difference to me but I do not get where everybody keeps saying how Kollin Moore is going to find a way to blow it again this year. 
    Freshman - Seeded 3rd. Goes MD, MD, MD & then loses to the 2 seed by 4. Wins in the consi's by decision and then pins the 4 seed to finish 3rd. Horrible job.
    Soph. - Seeded 1st. Goes dec, MD. Then gets caught, makes a mistake or call it what you will, he loses to Conel. Wins 3 on the backside including a win over #2 seed Darmstadt and then loses to Conel 5-3 and gets 4th. You want to say he underperformed okay but as the one seed it's either exactly to seed or underperforming. Not a great tournament obviously but not horrible. Conel was certainly better than his record would have indicated which was 30 - 11. 
    2019 - Seeded 2. Has 3 MD and a 6 point decision before losing 5-1 to a once-in-a-generation talent who was the three-time champion.
    3 years at an upper weight and he finishes fourth, third, second. He was nowhere near as big a recruit as Warner but to listen to people talk about him he's been ****ty for the last three years. Sorry but the facts don't back it up.

    BobbyGribbs got a reaction from tightwaist in Will this sell out?   
    I am open to growing the sport, encourage it heavily. I am trying to understand how going bigger capacity and shrinking the intimacy needed to watch wrestling will grow the sport based upon 1 event over a 3 day period.  Our beloved wrestling is a niche sport that doesn’t get a whole bunch of media coverage. Media coverage and better marketing to non wrestling fans will grow the sport to drive us to fill large capacity arenas. 
    Hopefully NCAA goes overboard on the fan experience away from your seats. Maybe allow fans to move freely to seats so they can better watch certain mats? A great experience will draw people back, encouraging me to spend money on seats w a bad view. I have high hopes.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to jstock in NCAA on ESPN   
    I would like to contact ESPN and ask them to reestablish the 4 mat view option for the NCAA tournament since I will be watching from home.  The tournament is way easier to watch with 2 streams on 4 mats on w big screen TV’s than constantly switching mats or managing the “too many streams” error.
    I am curious if this option is important to other fans watching at home and would you pay for the option on ESPN+.

    Bad night for the official. I'd say home cooking, but considering how sedated the crowd has been I can't explain these stall call inconsistencies. The one on Traub would have stalled out Verkleeren if called the same way.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to steamboat_charlie v2 in Lee true number 1 at 141   
    Right now it's splitting hairs with these two. Order doesn't matter considering they're going to get to settle it on the mat.
    The issue with the 141 rankings IMO is Real Woods.  For my money he's the 3rd best guy at the weight, and I'm definitely not alone there. He could easily end up as the #8 or #9 seed with only 1 loss, and blow up the whole bracket.  See: 2019 Mekhi Lewis.

    I dislike the lack of control in FS. FS reduces wrestling to just takedowns. I consider it half a sport. I want to see wrestlers demonstrate the ability to control their opponents, or to escape from them AS WELL. FS is just one dimensional.

    I didn't see Snyder claim anything other than his belief God wanted him to go to Penn State. People who pray ask God for guidance, a sign, help, call it whatever you want, on what course of action they should take. This sounds like he was praying and looking for direction. 
    Not sure why people have to criticize his beliefs.

    BobbyGribbs reacted to DocBZ in Is Rasheed much of an upgrade over Conel?   
    I could never understand the Rasheed hype train. He's in his sixth year now and what has he done? He wasn't great when it counted at NCAA's last year and his best finish is 7th.  What big wins does he have? His best win is against who... Willie Miklus?

    That is the biggest cop out and misconception in wrestling. Who is pushing Zahid in Tempe?  He is leaps and bounds better than anyone in the room. He is also 1000% times better than when he arrived in Tempe. If you don’t have it inside on your own,  nobody is going to get it for you. There are coaches in any of these rooms that can help get you there

    Well how would he know? He's never stayed at any place long enough or given any place a chance. And Kyle Snyder won a couple of medals while training in Columbus. It's not like he would be training in Vanuatu.
