  1. I find it humorous that Sioredas is assigned to rank 141 where Carlson is 7 and Hart is 8. Hart is 2-0 vs Carlson this year, out placed him at Big 12 though they didn't meet and both lost to Alirez.
  2. UWW Arena already lists Oliver as "INJ" under Weight II. Doesn't appear he will weigh in tomorrow.
  3. The Cowboy Challenge Tournament, the topic of the thread. They start talking about it around 26:20.
  4. They said Mauller and Jacques were both going. Mizzou sending 18 total with lots of young guys. Surtin and Harmon were both mentioned by named. Sounded like UCO is dealing with a Covid issue and won't send anyone, but that OU will be sending a few.
  5. I think Karimi ends up flying under the radar from running into Sadulaev and Cox, and now being behind Yazdani. He's has been to six straight age or senior level championships coming home with 4 medals. His losses in those tournaments break down as one to Sadulaev, three to Cox, and one thrown match where he was leading. He has solid wins in there as well. Year Event Weight Place Notes 2014 Junior Worlds 84 Gold Teched way through; 10-0, 10-0, 10-0, 12-2 2015 Worlds 86 Bronze lost 6-2 to Sadualaev in semis; 5 wins with 4 techs including in bronze match 2016 Olympics 86 7th lost 5-1 to Cox in quarters; not pulled into repechage 2017 U23 Worlds 86 13th lost 14-3 to Zhabrailov; was winning 3-2 with 1:05 left when threw match to avoid Israeli wrestler next round; Zhabrailov won U23 2018 Worlds 92 Bronze lost 5-2 to Cox in Semis; had 7-0 win over Sharifov; 12-1 win over Tcakulov; then 12-1 win over Marsagashivili for bronze 2019 Worlds 92 Silver lost 4-0 to Cox in finals; teched way to finals including 10-0 win over Zhabrailov
  6. If you're going to go this far, you might be better off contacting the coaches that rank 184 and make sure they are aware of the gaming of the system. Coleman was 25 in the coaches rank released 2/13. If he dropped to 31 he wouldn't be able earn an AQ spot despite now having an RPI because of his winning %. Might not even have to drop that far depending on how the weight shakes out.
  7. Would be a stronger argument if those prior world champions weren't also the reps in 2019, thus would be first in priority to be the PAOQ rep if they hadn't medaled last year. Procedures were only published recently, but are dated November 27, 2019. They would have known in November that criteria #1 wouldn't have any bearing on 74/97 but would on 86. Couldn't find any published criteria for the 2016 PAOQ but it was all 2015 world team members except for Tervel since Rey wrestled at 2015 Worlds. Of course Tervel had won 2015 WTT and got injured before Worlds so not exactly apples to apples. I'll take the best chance at qualifying the weight over being entirely fair.
  8. Haven't seen this posted yet, put USA Wrestling put the MFS selection procedures for the Pan Am OG Qualifier on their website. Seems to give Taylor first priority at 86kg, then Downey, then Cox. Listed in rank order: 1. Previous World Champion from 2017 or 2018 competing at the same Olympic weight class in which they won their World Championship. 2. 2019 World Team Member at the same Olympic weight class in which they competed at during the 2019 World Championships. 3. World medalist from 2017, 2018 or 2019 at any weight class.* 4. 2019 World Team Member from a non-Olympic weight class.* 5. If the team can NOT be filled following ranked items 1-4, selections will be recommended by the Men’s Freestyle National Team coaching staff to the Men’s Freestyle Sport Committee for final approval.* a. The selections will be made based off results during Fall 2019 & Winter 2020 competitions. b. Competitive readiness will also be taken into consideration. *If there are multiple people coming into the Olympic weight that meet the stated criteria; wrestle-offs will be scheduled accordingly prior to the event. Selection Procedures were also posted for MFS for the Pan Am Championships which are basically the same.
  9. It was announced they were seeding the qualifying tournaments in September. I pulled the seeding points earned from the ranking pages here.
  10. Since they are seeding the top 2 at the Pan Am Qualifier here are those that earned seeding points at Worlds without qualifying the weight. Points can also be earned at the 1st ranking event (Matteo Pellicone) and the Pan Am Championships. MFS 57kg - Tigreros Urbano COL - 14 86kg - Downey USA - 14 WFS 53kg - Valverde Melendres ECU - 18; Montero Herrera CUB - 16; Hildebrandt USA - 14 57kg - Rodrigues Penalber de Oliveira BRA - 16 62kg - Miracle USA - 16 GR 87kg - Gregorich Hechavarria CUB - 18 97kg - Rosillo Kindelan CUB - 14
  11. There is a much bigger benefit if you qualify the weight in WFS and greco as whoever qualifies the weight gets a bye to the finals of the OTT. Thus the established and published selection criteria.
  12. That was J'den's first loss at 92 kg. His last loss was to Boke at 2018 Yasar Dogu. Would have to find the interview, but this match was one of the reasons he made the move to the OTC. By his own admission he gassed in part because he was still helping at Mizzou at the time and wasn't able to devote all his time to his training.
  13. For anyone that still cares, they finally put the arbitration award online. You can find it here. Went up less than 24 hours after my prodding email, which has me kicking myself for not emailing sooner.
  14. NJDan once again you are referencing rankings that you don't understand what they are saying or how they work. Your response from the other thread is apt in this situation as well.
  15. Did Flo take down its articles about the refereeing assignments for the 2016 Olympics? Only dead links now (though there is a cached version of one of the articles). They had some good info in them although also some potentially libelous allegations made toward Silvestri. The same guy who apparently just made Yianni's case for him at the arbitration.
