  1. Bingo. Low risk, high reward.
  2. Practically speaking, it doesn’t matter that Nolf initiated the move because it is going to be consistently scored this way every time. This is international freestyle not domestic folk style, and like it or not this is going to be the call at least 9 out of 10 times. He will adjust accordingly I’m sure.
  3. It was marketed as 190 pounds
  4. Bo does not have any criteria for a seed at 86kg because the eye test is not listed by USAW. He participated at 92, then went up to the olympic weight of 97kg. Choices have consequences whether positive or negative, and he chose to not get any criteria at 86kg other than an exhibition match that doesn't have an official weigh-in and certainly was not a UWW-sanctioned event. If he is as good as advertised then a seed does not matter, after all Taylor had to face the reigning world champ first round in 2018 and the best wrestler won.
  5. Would be awesome to make it white elephant-style and everyone trades spots (with the first person also going last). Might as well make a fun hype event out of it and bring in viewers for an hour.
  6. So you are concerned that US refs are scoring consistent with their international peers?
  7. That was not a bad call. That is a great example to show at the kids club level to teach the scoring difference and positional awareness between freestyle and folkstyle.
  8. Amine Nevills Zavala Abounader Zain Nolf Vallimont Kerk Bekzod. Will be interesting to see if Massa turned the corner in the winter or if it was another glimpse of coulda woulda shoulda potential. Salata Snyder Ringer by two takedowns, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him on his back
  9. Some things are inevitable. Death. Taxes. Dake going winless on the internet against the Nittany Lions.
  10. He's mentored two world champs, a few more world team members, a slew of NCAA champs, probably 2-3x as many AAs, and oversees a team dynasty. And that doesn't even include the success his guys have off the mat. I'd say he has a pretty great idea of what he's doing.

    I think he said 4-6 months and that was back in the spring, so he should be well recovered for another shot at OTT next year

    What about the most recent American to beat JB, and was 8 seconds from taking another match from him?
  13. Obviously taking a page out of Brands' playbook and ducking Marinelli quack quack
  14. I would love to see Cael mentor J'Den. Too bad there can't be room for 4 monsters in the NLWC room. Edit: I mean help Cox grow into a potential world P4P champ, not "just" a 2x WC/4x medalist. They seem to be very similar in nature.
  15. I was alluding to the fact that the US provides significant funding to athletic science plus WADA, therefore developing and writing rules simultaneously while also knowing how to write the rules to avoid penalties in present and future.
  16. I'm not angry...? And sure, if fans want to believe it's not feasible then that's fine but extremely naive. Behind closed doors most would admit what I said is true even if they won't say it out loud.
  17. No it's not. It's a professional position, not a coaching position at an academic institution. And if you think this is a scandal just wait until you find out about AAU basketball coaches or baseball/ softball dads who move on to become D1 assistants with no degree.
  18. Yes, you are naive if you think that college and higher athletes of all sports are not taking performance-enhancing supplements and drugs. Don't clutch your pearls too tight when I tell you that the US is one of, if not the, dirtiest country. However, the US is also currently on the scientific cutting edge which gives the opportunity to stay ahead of the rules long enough that we get to write them. This has been your hot take of the morning.

    The only clients I see on SVN are there because of open hub, and that's because they wanted their code stored which is absolutely fantastic when the local crashes and because they aren't using git they are hosed. I never understand when people want to stick with it for any reason other than it's what they know and change is the worst thing ever.
  20. The other side of the NCA coin in a capitalist economy that the US claims to be the global leader of is that innovation, market share, price schedules, etc. dictate the phrase "the cream always rises to the top." In capitalistic terms, if you are good then you stay good; if your competitor can be better then keep up with them; if you can't keep up then don't let the door hit you on the way out. On a human level, I find very few reasons to support a full NCA and those reasons are of the utmost importance but the majority are corporate hogwash. That is only my personal opinion and I support yours, I'm just throwing out my two cents.
  21. Only Carl can beat Carl so obviously the correct answer is 1
  22. Kerk looks to be the only NCAA eligible athlete competing, which makes me wonder a few offshoot questions - Was Parris asked and declined? Was Micic asked and declined? Will this somehow negatively affect eligibility in any way?
  23. There are plenty of divorce lawyers that would like to point out that legal agreements are meant to be broken
  24. About 100 Bitcoiin2Gen tokens
  25. That was less indicative of weight and more looking for live mat time since Downey had to be given something as the 2019 world team member. Then PD3 didn't make it so Ringer went 86 and took bronze after initially registering at 92. This may be a red herring but I believe Nolf went 79 for that event so he could qualify for OTT so Ringer was 86, 92, or nothing since he already had a ticket punched to OTT.
