  1. No one is entitled to injury updates.
  2. Taboo topics He who must not be named He who must not be named part deaux Any reference to pigment discrimination Soon to be closed Lewis/Smith followed by Dake/Dieringer
  3. Dake wins match one 8-4 Dieringer match two 6-6 Match three I think a fresh and hungry Dieringer prevails over Dake still shaking rust off. Final score 7-4
  4. Seems like threads get locked quickly. Their ball, their rules, but still....
  5. Who cares? He isn't going to medal anyway.
  6. Now you are going to get this thread censored.
  7. I think having it in Kazakhstan will play a huge factor in how calls are made. The usual anti US bias will bite us in our butt. Dake is hurt and will not be 100 percent. Burroughs best years are behind him. Snyder has been figured out, and Cox will make finals but lose to a Russian.
  8. The women should do really well. Mens Freestyle will have 3 or 4 medals and but no gold this year.
  9. Yaz won't meet Downey. Downey will lose his first match to a nobody and will not even be pulled through.
  10. Sorry but PD3 is the one US wrestler I will be rooting against.
  11. I don't know the rules of arbitration for USA Wrestling or if arbitration is even in the bylaws. Matt Lindland sued for his spot back in 2000, and that could happen here.
  12. I do not see any "locks" for gold this time around. Burroughs has lost a couple steps, Snyder has been figured out by Sadulaev, Dake is hurt and will not be 100% by worlds. Gilman/Fix are medal threats but not for gold. Best shot is Cox.
  13. First guess is no they will not win. Perhaps the US will win five medals and will only win one gold.
  14. I smell an arbitration ordered rematch of match 2.
  15. The step out rule isn't wrestling, it is sumo. It is an unearned point based on passivity and not offense. It has no place in any style with the sole exception of sumo.
  16. Puts a black eye on the sport for sure. Colorado had a high school coach go away for 10 years to life for inappropriate relationships with a manager.
  17. Nolf scored on a reshot early in the 2nd period. Maybe Hidlay shuts down and gets called for stalling. Maybe Nolf opens up and takes bigger chances. Maybe the whole match plays out the same. Point is, there is no way to know.
