  1. Nolf was indeed taken down, had the points stayed up, the entire rest of the match would have changed. Nolf would have wrestled with more urgency and likely made up the difference.
  2. I don't see how any contact sport is going to commence this year. All it takes is single positive test to quarantine an entire team since they will all count as exposed, not to mention the team they played.
  3. My apologies for the bombast. There is plenty of evidence to strongly suggest he sandbagged his age. Taking his word for it isn't exactly a resounding exoneration. I will let it go since it is all water under the bridge.
  4. What is the point of playing college athletics without ticket sales and spectators? Especially with football.
  5. When you look at individual matches, it doesn't seem egregious, but when you look at the entirity of the 2000 Games, there was a very obvious anti US for the whole tournament.
  6. I can't even watch the replays of the Kolat matches or I will get irritated.
  7. I forgot the sarcasm font.
  8. I am not taking his well rehearsed word for it.
  9. So he dodged the question. He cheated to win a lower level tournment. End of story.
  10. Brands did get hosed but then again he is a dickhead so it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
  11. Paywall. Not a flo subscriber.
  12. Brandon Slay vs Leipold. The clinch rule was a bad rule anyway, and Leipold puts on a great acting show the make it look like Slay isn't allowing him to lock up. couple that with a gifted hand grabbing penalty and Leipold has a 3 zip lead. Slay would lose 4 to 1 and then Leipold subsequently be stripped of his gold for a positive PED test.
  13. If you really want to hit the way back machine, there was Bruce Baumgardner with 84, 88, 92, 96. And Kenny Monday with 88, 92, and 96.
  14. There was a match back when escape points were awarded between Jaddidi and Melvin Douglas in the World finals (forgot the year). Jaddidi was placed down and as Douglas got set and whistle blows Jaddidi stands and gets out and was awarded the point. None if the above mentioned criteria were met, but the pt was awarded anyway and it was the difference in the match. Jaddidi later lost his medal due to PED violation.
  15. Those were the good old days of US wrestlers getting jobbed at any opportunity. Henson's singlet grab, Kolat's bs protest, Brands leg turk being stopped, etc. Even Slay had dubious penalties assessed gifting his opponent 3 points. The 2000 Olympics were a joke.
  16. The issue at hand isn't the grey shirts, it is about a specific individual that most likely cheated at age 20 or 21 to compete in a lower age division. All the equivocation in the world doesn't make it right but some of you are willing to turn a blind eye.
  17. We get it LJB, you are ok with cheating.
  18. Holding your kid back and lying about your age are two different things. I am not a fan of the 8th grade redshirt or worse getting a second bite of the 4 timer apple by repeating freshman year, but having a 20 or 21 year old entering Fargo is worse.
  19. Between that and the ball grab, wrestling was an absolute joke back then.
  20. For all of DF's toolboxery, this is by far his best post.
  21. Maybe Coach Ryan will give another "Dark Places" speech.
