    Bad Look For Wrestling

    I’m trying to figure out where you could come up with the splitting hairs, and I’m drawing a blank. Can you help me out?

    Bad Look For Wrestling

    I know you were, millennial (I know you’re not millennial, I just couldn’t think of another current trendy word to say....I’m not very trendy)

    Which is why I said supposedly.

    Bad Look For Wrestling

    USOC sanctioned arbitrations have been going on, in wrestling as well as other sports, longer than snowflake was a supposedly cool thing to say.

    Will John Smith win another title at tOSU?

    I think he certainly could. Has some firepower in the wings and they are always good enough for that any team can get hot on the right day. It would take some big head to head wins over the elite, and he’s had and going to have squads capable of that. Now whether he will. I think his window is Fix’ eligibility. Not just because of him but what they have coming and that timeline. Goes without saying he’s a big piece. I think PSU will come down a little bit, not enough to where they won’t be the favorite but maybe more catchable. And Smith will have the guns capable. Having said all that, if I had to put money on yes or no, it would be no.

    I don’t think anyone would have turned him down five years ago. That said, I don’t think he flourishes the way he did anywhere else in the country. His style and CS were match made in heaven.

    Oh I thought it was one of those rhetorical questions. What would it take? Well I can't really analyze what it would take to get my opinion of something up to the level you really want it to be. So I guess I don't really have an answer to that question.

    What questions? The one you were begging for you cut out, as I explained that was incredibly disrespectful. I think I've answered everything else. and going....and going.....and going....

    Coaching

    Brandon Slay's 3x5 system. I used to teach seven basic skills to all rookies first and foremost. That was replaced at the end of my coaching career by the 3x5. I really feel like it is better to teach those concepts before any technique.

    Not admitting I was wrong to say it No we haven't established anything other than your belief I was wrong for calling it in fact a controversy, but that my level of description of how much of a controversy was not acceptable to your standards. That's all that has been established. And as I said to you a looooooooooong time ago. That's fine. We all have different things we focus on. I will say I find it interesting that you are saying things like "I mean its such an insignificant word", and also forcing the idea that all I care about is you agreeing with me, while I also said a looooong time ago it is not as significant to me as it is to you so I don't really care to debate it, yet you keep going, and going, and going......

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    No, I didn't want complete agreement, just wanted you to find something else to argue about, other than the term "little". Which you have. So once again, all is fair and just.
  14. Yeah not a big fan of the overuse of that phrase, to the point I almost didn't write it, but felt this was one where it actually fits.
  15. Lurker

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    Actually we are not. We are both talking about the significance of three seconds and a questionable call on someone's four year careeer. YOU are talking about two different things with us....definitions of "a little" and "one of". (Just take this post with a grain of salt, I'm a bully)
  16. Lurker

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    Thank you. All is fair and just now.

    Man....I finally answered the question you were so desperate for, and you cut it out when quoting me. That's rough. Who's being hard on who now???

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    I don't know if I've said this before, but certainly have thought it. I think it needs to be acknowledged that @russelscout actually has @TBar1977 and myself on the same side of something. Anyone that spends any time around here has to realize how extremely profound that is!!

    Being over dramatic does not help you. I will try to not attack you so hard from now on. For the record, and to soften up my attacks on you, I will answer the irrelevent question (as there were plenty of big stories, and this wasn't the biggest), yes it was a one of the big stories coming out of NCAA's.

    Yianni won the arbitration. Next steps?

    So with what you said, as I had not heard that, I went back and watched that sequence. I have to say, even if that was the edict, the call is still warranted. One being that you can see the official warning him, calling his attention. One could argue that the guidance passed on before wrestling started was not followed because the match was not stopped and attention to the coaches, however this was such an egregious act of running and avoiding contact, the verbal warning during the action is fine. It was absolutely the right call. Tough spot, at the very end of a medal match, but you have to make that call. You can't set the precedent of allowing something like that to happen. It was literally for the last nine seconds.

    That would be because, as I said, I'm not going to continue to argue over what is a little vs what is a lot. For example, my concern for whether or not "little" is placed in front of the word "controversy" is.....little. Your concern on the other hand is apparently...a lot. And I don't see the need to continue the argument because it is very much a bigger deal for you than me, and that's great, we all have our little things we like to focus on, so I won't get in the way of that. I will however continue with sarcasm and smart ass comments. Those are always fun!!

    Details? Without the name. I'm seriously just curious.

    Whom have you heard Koll slander that he hasn't even met?

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    We just finished the breaking point definition of "little vs not little" debate, do we need to get right into the what is the definition of "one of" argument you have going on as well. I don't know that I have the willpower for both in the same day! Bless you for your strength, but I just can't.

    Looking back, was Nolf really that great?

    I wasn't sold on the level of controversy based on what was going on around here....but now that you have informed me people on twitter were arguing about it! SOLD!! I'm going to quietly walk out of this room, now that the where is the breaking point for a little vs a lot of controversy controversy has been settled..
