    Easy now. People can have opinions before a match

    As someone that doesn't know a thing, IMO if Hall stays in the counter/defensive style he can't beat ZV. Sometimes you have to throw someone else's game back at them. I would love to see Hall go after ZV. Likely won't happen, but I would like to see it.

    That guy "Upset" is always lurking out there somewhere. Nobody ever thought that a freshman could keep Steiber on the mat for a whole period but it happened. FR Gabe Dean took out Ed Ruth. I'm sure no one was worried about Kyle Conel last year at the NCAA Tournament. I'm not sure anybody thought that Joseph could beat IMar twice. It might not be evident but so few finish with less than 3 losses in their careers.

    that is when it became public. it might not coincide with when things occurred.

    While Valencia is great there is still a long way to go for an undefeated career save a penalty point, which is a point by the way.
  9. Well that gives Jets and Bills fans something worthwhile to watch.

    Ducking

    Because my wife worked for an NCAA Div 1 football program I learned a long time ago that there are a lot of reasons why athletes do or do not compete at any given time. Coaches rarely talk about discipline unless it becomes a chronic problem. Brands could be sitting out because he missed a tutoring session, was late for a lift, etc. Those are all things that would be ahead of ducking someone in November in my opinion.

    Phish, you use fact a lot, but few of those are facts with corroborating evidence. Your facts are likely but until a coach says I ranked ZV ahead of MH because he beat him in the All Star it is just speculation. I agree with your points for the most part, but I can't say they are facts.

    NWCA All Star Classic

    Why is it better to have an event that doesn't count (but kind of does) before the season? After the national tournament interest in the sport is at its peak. I think you are more likely to get top guys willing to participate. Slide weights towards FS weights and get some champs wrestling one another. I respect other opinions, but what they are doing now isn't working.

    I don't like the timing of the All Star. To me this event could be better exploited after the National Championships. The sport has just been running on a national network. Take it to an interesting place and have 125 champ wrestle 133 champ and so on. There is nothing on the line at that point. Guys are still in wrestling condition.

    I don't think there was a difference between 1 and 2 at 174 last year but at times there can be a big advantage to being seeded 1 vs. 2. If there is a weight with 3 guys that have distanced themselves from the field the semis vs. the 3 could be significantly harder than whoever the 1 gets. 125 last year was kind of an example. Thomasello draws Lee by being #2. Thomasello probably makes the finals vs. either Cruz or Suriano. Sometimes it doesn't matter at all because the bracket blows up like 149 last year where you have 11 vs. 15 to go to the finals. Just my thoughts.

    Not sure people are hating on tOSU. In this internet age the motto of Ricky Bobby is true to fans. If you're not first you're last. Everybody that doesn't win a championship is a disappointment. So and so was a 4 timer in high school and all he ever did in college was AA four times is a common refrain. We have become a pretty negative culture all in all. Nathan Thomasello went 1,3,3,&3 and that just isn't good enough for fans to say he had a great career. Bo Jordan came in as the next great Buckeye but "only" went 3,3,2,&5. Failure. Fans love to attack their opponents but overall it is usually good natured. I will say that the wrestling community as a whole is probably more fair to the athletes than fans of other sports are to their stars.
