    ThorsteinV reacted to wrestlingphish in The upside case for Snyder   
    I heard through my Russian sources that Sad was absolutely distraught at how close Snyder came so he was asking around what the best excuse would be to explain his lack of leg attacks and the Facebook poll he created overwhelmingly went with 'leg injury' and so that is the story he told.

    I saw no improvement. The short time of 27s left was telling. If the stronger, bigger, better conditioned guy can't even sniff a point with the match on the line and Sadulaev in blocking mode, I don't see a path to victory. Snyder wasn't even able to move Sadulaev out of position once the entire time.

    Correct. They will wrestle those before the first session of 74kg, 125kg and the weight class that Winchester is in.

    Yes.. that was my point.  The point of the other post was that Dake did better at 79kg than 74kg, using is close win over Chamizo as a reference.

    ThorsteinV reacted to AHamilton in Flo New Setup   
    I most certainly am not the first Secretary of the Treasury. The fact that I lack a .50 caliber hole above my right hip is proof of that!
    What are your thoughts on Hamilton's "First Report on the Public Credit?"

    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!

    Ahhhh.... thats right.  While the Tigers are barely an SEC member in football, they are still a member.  I was thinking of the SEC with no wrestling schools, forgetting that Mizzou was technically a member.
    I had a coach who wrestled for LSU.  How crazy is that?

    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.

    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.
