    The obvious difference is that with a car, you actually pay $400/month. In this case, you never actually pay $12.50/month.  What are they trying to do? Demonstrate that they can divide by 12?

    Can we at least agree parents shouldn't be allowed that close to the kids wrestling?

    You make these generalizations with such confidence. How do you know these things? The proportion of the wrestling community that satisfies some observable characteristic (political affiliation, e.g.) is an empirical issue.  As such, these claims about the demographics of the wrestling community can be verified or refuted with data; they’re not incontestable. 
    How do you know that the US wrestling community is extremely “...Republican, religious, and conservative,” especially given that the group tends to flee from matters related to religion and politics?  I’d like to see this data.

    dmm would turn every single thread left wing political and anti religion if he could. He is "that guy" you run from at social gatherings because you know he is going to start his indoctrination crap.

    Yup & a damn shame.  Need programs outside the Big 10 & Okie State to remain relevant.  Still waiting for Lehigh to get back into the top 5 nationally.

    Smith just beat Rogers for the position.  Here is the confirmation:

    I don't think the Joe Smith thing is final (though it could be). Ok. State was always going to submit Rogers as their post season probable because he's the only one who can earn an allocation. If Joe can't go, then you still have the 5 spots for Rogers instead of the 4 you would get if you submit Joe. Could be wrong though.

    ThorsteinV got a reaction from TBar1977 in FRL: Spencer Lee is NOT sick!   
    Right, I was backpedaling because I realized it wasn't mentioned on here. 
    Looking back, I made a few claims: 1) I don't think Nolf will medal this year; 2) I did not think that the Nolf-Green freestyle match was as close as suggested; and 3) I think Green is the favorite over Nolf at 70 kg this year.  None of which was ever intended to suggest that Nolf can't beat Green or that Nolf would never make a world team. I can see how I came across in a different way but I think Nolf is great - I just try to temper my expectations concerning world medals.  I voiced similar concerns regarding Taylor prior to the world championships and I was glad to be proven wrong.  Dude had to dig deep against that russian and showed a lot of toughness that someone like him typically doesn't have to display -- I thought it was awesome.

    ah gotcha. yeah Smith would kind of have to list Rogers, as he'd qualify the spot and Joseph wouldn't, but then still have a wrestle off or somehow determine would the actual starter was. but you'd want to list Rogers now no matter who would win the wrestle off later. 
    that would also be a point in favor of Rogers when considering who to send out there for Big 12s. guess we will all find out soon enough.

    Flo has improved tremendously over the past few years.  But I do at least understand some of the criticism.  I'm still not sure why they don't offer a wider variety of pricing/membership options; especially if the streaming capacity issues are less of a concern.  $150/year is certainly economical but some potential users are budget constrained while others may not view sufficient content to justify purchasing an annual membership.  Why not offer the $30/month memberships for casual fans?  I'd think that would more than offset the liquidity concerns or cash flow problems it may present.

    It's obvious that Picc and Rivera improved dramatically over the season and that Spencer is less than 100%.  It's a complicated world, multiple things can go on at the same time.  
    What's surprising to me is the number of people who still seem to think Spencer is a favorite to win NCAAs.  It's certainly possible but I haven't seen anything lately that would suggest that it's likely to occur.  It kind of reminds my of Matt McDonough and Jesse Delgado final seasons.. I hoped they'd return to form but it just never came.
