    What do you think caused us to be in such a tenuous position back when they were cutting wrestling from the schedule?

    It was wrestling's turn to get shaken down for money by a corrupt IOC. They (IOC) recognized a market (wrestling) that had the financials means and would be willing to pay to play (US, Russia, Eastern Euro states, Middle East states). Even gymnastics, figure skating, and track & field have participation fees from time to time - they are just less obvious.

    This, 'cold spray therapy' has it's roots in European soccer and began with the, 'cold sponge therapy.'  A sponge soaked in freezing cold water then applied to players knee or ankle, etc after a, "knock."  The results saw almost all players injured, were back up and running full speed within a few moments after what appeared to be a devastating injury.  The professional leagues around the world adopted this therapy and then they also moved to the, 'cold spray therapy' which the Russian wrestlers soon adopted.                                                                                          The ingredients are unknown, but have been linked to the embryonic cells of the Chinstrap Penguin.

    Did you see the joke as it whooshed over your head? Or should we stop play after a knock on to explain it you -_-


  3. Rumor is that Snyder is undergoing an experimental Eastern European cold spray therapy 3x daily. I heard Big Pharma had great success in a recent trial at Russian nationals that had guys going from dead to rights (never able to walk again) and they were fully recovered within minutes of catching their breath. Can only imagine the boost Captain America will get


  4. Tsabalov beat Sidakov in ‘18 and the  lost a close match on criteria so this should not come as a huge surprise. He was pretty demonstrative that he should be the Olympic rep but seemed resigned that he wasn’t going to get a fair shake. Glad to see him get a chance to prove it on the mat and light it up in this match. It’s scary to think that the second best guy in the world will probably be watching from home for the foreseeable future at 74kg. Sounds eerily familiar...

    Looks like, "the talent" didn't want the money...

    Hypothetical domestic star-studded event with Fix, Gilman, Lee, Suriano, Gross, Colon, Micic. You offer them a tourney in the middle of the offseason where half only make a thousand bucks to take an L and go home after 6 minutes. Why WOULD top-flight wrestlers be interested?

    At the senior level the only things that make sense as a reward that outweighs the risk of injury are world rankings points, national team tourneys, and being offered a five-figure guaranteed purse. Otherwise they are looking at $1k minus taxes and I doubt anyone of that caliber could be convinced to put it all on the line and walk away with $700 bucks when it’s all said and done. 

    Please know that I fully support the brackets Flo is rolling out to make lemonade out of the lemons this year has given. It is fantastic and I am glad that non-top tier competitors get another moment and the spotlight doesn’t end at 22 years old, and fantastic that fans get to see competition when there has not been anything but delayed hope and cancellations. I just want to see the forest and the big redwood trees and I would be more than willing to give Flo some sweet PPV money to see it.

    Lee Munster was a judo kid. Maximillian Schneider he's with Welch now at San Fran St started career  at Poly

    Schneider won the judo version of cadet worlds, was a training partner in Rio, took home a bronze at '18 WTT, and last I heard is still training for a 2020ne olympic spot. He was also listed as the D2 Hodge frontrunner by Flo last year. https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6682601-hypothetical-dii-hodge-ranking

    No he wasn't.  He just said in his interview after winning Senior Nats he only got up to 247 last season.

    His dad said 255 so I took that for what it was worth. But honestly I don’t think that 3.6 keggers is a big deal for a college guy especially when he has the support of 30 teammates.

    The City of Tulsa does a great job of booking about 3-5 large events for the same time. So get your rooms booked NOW! Between a boat show, marathon, home show, and the NCAAs, there could be a shortage of rooms. 

    The R66 marathon is pretty big - last I remember it was around 15k participants. Multiplied that by ~1.8 for friends & family tagging along booking rooms for Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Seriously get your rooms now.
