  1. Lee is a good athlete and a great wrestler. I do think he lacks the athleticism, especially lateral movement and agility, that you usually see with the high level guys at 65kg. Honestly, I think he’s more athletic than maybe one or two guys in Final X.
  2. RBY is awesome and it’s bizarre to me that he routinely beats Fix. Would be beat him in freestyle too?
  3. He looked really good the last two tournaments. I wonder how much he weighs
  4. How long does the first round usually last?
  5. Jordan’s shoulder was at least 3 inches off the ground when that pin was called. Even the BTN announcers mentioned it
  6. He was wrestling RBY, defending National champion who beat Daton Fix. I’m sure he’s really easy to finish on. Desanto isn’t going to beat RBY but that was a good effort. Did you see RBY’s facial expressions after the match? Either he was sick or wrestling Desanto isn’t enjoyable
  7. Yeah, PSU is definitely the favorite. Iowa is still in contention and would’ve won with acl-less Spencer
  8. Fortunately, March will be a lot more interesting than I thought a few weeks ago.
  9. Michigan was training through this dual
  10. Suriano wasn’t beating acl-less Lee.
  11. Do you guys also have data monitoring Twitter engagement? If so, did Pyles lose a lot of engagement following the Willie trials? It seems for as many followers he has, he gets pretty limited engagement lately.
  12. How about Gable vs Snyder? Am I wrong to think Gable manhandles him?
  13. It was also quite obvious that Snyder didn’t have that extra gear of Taylor and Gable to go get it late.
  14. Suppose we quadrupled the Living the Dream Medal payout for Greco Roman wrestling, how much would that improve medal output?
  15. When do 57kg repechage matches take place? Tomorrow morning?
  16. Stevan Micic won bronze at junior worlds for the USA. I wonder how much he had to pay to transfer to Serbia
  17. I believe he’s talking about the exhibition on Flo. I don’t think it was 74kg though, if that was your point.
  18. I’m not sure it’s a pseudonym but it’s certainly not my real name. Are you the A. Hamilton I remember from my government class? Of course there’s a difference between posting anonymously on a wrestling forum and publishing an article for public dissemination. I certainly exist, I’m merely an economics professor. Most wouldn’t call me a scientist!
  19. I recall inquiring about the individual’s authenticity at the time and it was never clarified that the name was a pseudonym. I guess I was holding you guys to a higher standard. I can’t imagine any other media outlet referencing a professor (or any person) by a pseudonym and not providing that information to the reader - it’s a bit peculiar.
  20. It was often repeated back then that University of Missouri had “the best wrestling school in the SEC.” Maybe I heard it enough that I didn’t find it as hilarious.
  21. Spey seems like one of those fake smart guys. I remember the time he wrote a story that cited some research professor that didn’t actually exist - since I share that profession, it was easy to debunk. He really isn’t the ideal candidate to log on here to dismiss the criticisms of Flo. One has to hand it to him though: he toes the company line but it isn’t a long-run equilibrium. Flo is losing ground fast.
  22. I would find the Spencer Lee banner link less striking if he was done wrestling for Iowa.
  23. Spencer Lee’s not listed on Iowa 2021-2022 roster. Is he not competing next season? https://hawkeyesports.com/sports/wrestling/roster/season/2021-22/
  24. Who would’ve won this weekend in a fantasy match?
