  1. When you say all his injuries out loud you really appreciate all that Howe accomplished and overcame. I wonder if he will wait to take Kennedy's spot, find his way back to Bormet, or move directly to an RTC or D1 head coach position next.
  2. Kolat vs Tom or Terry Poeta vs Howe Greg Jones vs Hahn Delgado vs Heil but only if it's a 2016 rulebook Varner vs Mocco
  3. I heart Carl and Bormet so much right now for this. Here's to hoping we see more RTC duals. As they say, iron sharpens iron and this is a win for all involved.
  4. No way Russia lets the Tank come here for an exhibition, which is honestly a shame. So make him an offer that they would at least have to vocally say no to- offer him $200k and comp whatever he needs for two weeks. In return he wrestles Nickal, Taylor, then Cox and Snyder over 2 days. Flo can charge me $50 on top of my annual for those PPVs and I would gladly pay.
  5. Not sure we would ever find out about Metcalf, but I bet Taylor throws on the mask a couple times a year. I would bet $5 he is at least 70 and yes definitely high LT... most US senior level competitors are I would assume (based on our wrestling style).
  6. Ask a guy like Taylor or Metcalf. Both are probably high 70s-low 80s which translates to a nonstop torrid pace.
  7. In that particular scenario? It would not have been any amount of time. If Fix flattened Suriano with double boots then he likely had him dead to rights and the win. I do not like that the ref took over in a double OT ride-out period and decided to give Suriano a get out of jail free card. Fix was doing what he needed to do for a win and I blame folkstyle, not Fix. As has been mentioned how is it any different than a claw spiral that isn’t doing jack but has the same result? Philosophically speaking - why give a point for riding time if you are not encouraging smothering rather than turns?
  8. Fix was hosed. Folkstyle allows for the legs to be thrown in and ride out, otherwise there would not be that little thing called "riding time."
  9. I don't think the MIT of the west offers a world class ag program. What a shame...
  10. I thought ABrooks already took a greyshirt split between the OTC and NLWC?
  11. Not that it will matter, but I read it as the NCAA champ will qualify for freestyle AND greco, not freestyle OR greco. Unless Lee decides to go for a double stop sign?
  12. If your team has 12 or more subscribers he gives a discounted rate of only 75 emails per week
  13. Before Bakker went to prison, did you know that this crook guy was one of his pilots? He "blows the wind of god" on your opinion! Rosholt will always be punchable-est
  14. Probably because he had the most smug, punchable face of all time. Says a lot considering teammates Johny & Johnny are #1B and 1C in the same category.
  15. I gave my criteria across 100-ish words so not sure what more I can provide? Like I said, it’s an opinionated answer that each person will have a different criteria and quantification + qualification to come to their decision.
  16. I do from personal and existential experience. I have a hunch he is an all-around top 6. Gunto my head: Smith, Carl, Cunningham, Terry, Ryan, and Bormet. I have a real tough time picking 2 of 3 between Terry, Tom, and Ryan but I know that this is a completely opinionated ideology and a hundred people will have a hundred different answers. I guess my thought at a quick snapshot is how the coach can combine college recruiting, college technique, business mentality, pipeline, endured success at top college level, senior technique, senior success, and consistently pumping out senior reps + medalists. So I put a lot of weight for a guy like Kolat who can keep a low-end D1 afloat, and at the same time a guy like Ryan who can energize donors like nobody else, and a guy like Terry who can mold good high schoolers into AAs and champs plus world medalists. I think Mark Perry is on the shortlist to be on this list. Taylor will also be there within a decade. I already included Bormet, who I believe will end up as the senior coach one day sooner than later. I also think, and this is nothing more than a thought, that Cox and Snyder will both be great senior coaches one day for the US or another country who would waste their talent at the NCAA level.
  17. And Cunningham is one of the top 5 coaches in the US regardless of title don't @ me
  18. Taylor's entire tourney was nothing short of Awesome with a capital a. He's a fantastic example of why you wrestle hard all 6 minutes and it does not matter whether you are up or down on the scoreboard.
  19. To think that US wrestlers are a pristine, noble group that has not and does not dope is laughable at best.
  20. Is Gadson taking a page out of the Magic Man playbook and packing on thirty pounds to earn that elusive world medal?
  21. That's because we are too busy talking about Nickal ducking him, Cox's accolades being as important as Streebler's jv trophy due to weight class, and PD3 launching Taylor onto his head. There is only so much time in a day to fit in more than those hot topics.
  22. Yeah but the whole point of the move is that NLWC is not just another RTC - it has the look and feel of a de facto OTC-east with w world class coaching staff and roster. To say that someone who is quite possibly the best in the world, and at worst on his worst day would still be 5th in the world (Sad, Sharifov, Mohamnidian, Cox in your assumption) does not scream afterthought. But hey whatever you do you man...
  23. Sorry to disappoint everyone with high school practice results from 15 years ago
  24. Hernandez and Jose Escobedo also. He was 4th in a strong room.
