    No. No David Taylor. Without Taylor and the departure of Bubba, the Penn State narrative ends somewhere else. More Alton-esque recruits; fewer Matt Brown recruits.
    I mean, Sanderson came out of retirement as a part of a team building strategy.  That sorta of investment in the program is invaluable and can't be duplicated.

    misterc reacted to Better Call Stall in Kennedy Monday in the Transfer Portal?   
    Kennedy was wearing a Lakers #6 jersey
    Lakers #6 is Lebron
    Lebron was born in 1984
    Kenny Monday won a title in 1984 at 150 lbs
    150 lb weight class became the 157 lb weight class
    Quincy wrestles at 157
    Boom, code cracked.

    JB is rare among wrestlers in that he thinks, A LOT, about everything.  What's more, is he's willing to talk about it and let people know what he's thinking about.  In doing so, there were a few years there where from the outside it didn't seem like he was all-in, with talk of what's next, should he hang it up, can he still be the best, etc.  
    Listening to him today, I don't get that sense at all, which might worry me a little bit if I was Kyle Dake.  Granted, by the time those trials roll around JB will be nearly 36 and Dake will just be hitting cadet eligibility.

    To be fair the only top level competitors that don't have to beat a Russian or Iranian to win worlds are the Russians and Iranians.

    And to think back in 2011, Burroughs was a bright hope for USA freestyle wrestling.  United States just came out of a disappointing year in 2010 where we placed 22nd as a team with no medalist.  Everyone debating and pointing fingers on what had to be done in order to bring USA wrestling back from our low point.  Enter JB, the new kid on the block without no major freestyle experience yet beats the defending champ at 74kg.  Right there and then, we knew we just witnessed something special but never did I imagine he would be winning a world gold 10 years later.  Amazing.

    Smartest tactician, most clutch winner, and toughest most consistently unshakeable dude I have ever seen in any sport. A lot of brains and minds could go in that body and still come up empty for titles or never be able to make the comebacks, adversities, and adjustments he has.

    misterc reacted to Jon_Kozak in Russia wrestle-offs   
    Zhamalov (Russias #2 at 74) had surgery on his shoulder after Euros-in May.
    Gadzhimagomedov has been competing at 86 for the past year and a half. Took bronze at 2021 Rus Nats.
    David Baev is probably number 3 or 4 at 70kg but the margins are slim. Kasumov won Rus Nats in March but Baev was trying to make the Olympics at 65kg. Cherman Valiev beat Baev in the finals of 2020 Rus Nats (October 2020). Also, Shiraev beat Baev at the Yarygin in May.

    You should listen/watch it. It wasn’t Askren’s fault. 
      
    Askren can be an instigator, but he doesn’t do it like this. He didn’t expect Dake and JB to go at it like that

    It's been a minute but I remember the look on Askren's face as things unfolded, and it seemed like even he had no idea things were going to go that way.  I think Askren or Flo even tried to steer the conversation back to NCAA topic but they were not in control.  I don't think anyone on the show was prepared for it, and no matter how Askren defended it afterward, it wasn't a great look.  
    Getting off topic some more, what I have always wondered about was when things got really sour between them.  I know the tension was always there because of how the World Team Trial procedures were, but I thought they were kind of ok going into the 2018 World Championships, taking pictures together as "the old guys" in response to Imar and Zahid, with JB complementing Dake while watching him at the World Cup.

    They don’t look like scores if you’re looking at it through folkstyle glasses. If you’re looking at it through the same glasses as the rest of the world, that was two big mistakes by Snyder that the best wrestler in the world took advantage of.

    I didn't say the greatest single boxer, or single MMA athlete ever. His high level accomplishments in more than one combat sport speak for themselves, and it does not matter when he started fighting, he still went on to do it.   Neither were a waste of talent in any measure what so ever, no matter how disappointed anyone is in what they chose to go after.   But carry on...

    Correct, JB said "scared money don't make money".  John Smith then amusingly sorta butchered it and said, "I've never heard that...scared money...or ya make money.  I like that."   The moment itself was golden.
