    Vincenzo Joseph so far = Kyle Dake?

    Right, I meant Dake was the first/only to do it at 3 different weight classes.

    Actually tougher for me to answer than I thought when you isolate up to their mid Junior years. Cenzo has won two titles and all it took was stopping Imar from becoming the next 4Xer. That's impressive. Although Dake started his run as a true freshman, I don't think he really became transcendent until he finished his Junior year with a dominant NCAAs going 3 for 3 in 3. Which had not been done at that point. So I'm gonna give to Cenzo for now but that may change depending on how his conference and NCAAs go.

    I'd like to see Yianni D mix it up with our current 65kg group. I have been a long long Stieber fan, but I just don't think he is our guy in 2019. Especially with Zain and Oliver in the mix now.

    Furthermore, he went on twitter to say as long as he competes it will be at 74kg. Any thoughts of going to 79kg were because he was hungry. I still think this changes depending on how the 2020 Olympic trials shakes out.

    Fix/Suriano - worst ncaa match of all time?

    My argument as well. Not stalling does not equal creating action.

    Fix/Suriano - worst ncaa match of all time?

    It encourages either wrestler to create action. Dake actually does a good job of creating action when he's on the clock. He doubled legged Taylor to the adjacent mat one of the last times he was put on the clock against Taylor. You can create action to create openings just as well. Again, we've seen Dake do this so that he can get a crotch lift in.

    Strictly from a promoting of action perspective, I'm also one for push out and shot clock. Heck, even the no OT has worked well from the stand point of encouraging action. How many times have we seen folkstyle matches just cruise on into OT, including the one we are talking about. Now compare that to last second heroics we see in freestyle.

    Fix tried a few half-committed lefty hi-c's at the end of the match. Other than that there was never a true committed attack.

    Yeah I think we all understand the big picture. JB should be testing the waters at 79kg anyways. I figure if he loses the Olympic spot at 74kg, he can bump up and be in the conversation to win a World title at 79kg for 2020 to cap off a stellar career (assuming they still hold Worlds like 2016).

    I hope and think we will see a much more explosive JB at 79kg. When he looked bigger at beat the streets, he was able to explode on Chamizo. At 2017 Words, he looked bigger and was much more explosive throughout that whole tournament compared to 2018 Worlds.

    J. Cox Olympic Weight?

    At 74, if JB loses to Dake at Olympic Trials, does JB go to the WC at 79?? I'd like to see that. I also think Cox will bump to 92 and try to dethrone Synderman for 2020.

    What about Robles

    Have you seen him do the rope climb? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have to agree with the last few posts here. JB was wrestling well, got caught in the moment and had a mental lapse in the last seconds and that was the difference. Same scenario that cost David Taylor his match against JB at their US Open match a few years back - not staying in disciplined stance and reaching to try and grab to close the match. Dake does a great job of staying in a disciplined stance. Comparing JB's last two worlds though, he looked much better last year IMO. More on the attack creating flurries - DOUBLES!. This year, very calculated and strategic it seems. Kind of like he was in the period between Rio and 2017 Worlds. Snyder was just in a bad position for a little too long and Sad took advantage of it. Something Snyder can learn from and improve/avoid.
  14. Yah, not cool indeed. Although, IMO, KS is not as articulate or charismatic as a JB. I don't think the true meanings of some of his comments come across sometimes so they get misconstrued. Like that time he said he thinks he can beat Sadulaev worst the next time they met. Could easily be reworded. But these guys are athletes and not public speakers so no fault to him.
  15. I saw it several times on Twitter this weekend. https://twitter.com/FloWrestling/status/1054731342229987333
