  1. Both Hidlay's and Nolf's approach to the rest of the match is changed. The TD or removal thereof has a butterfly effect. There is no way to know what the rest of the match holds. The point is that you cannot take the final 3-2 score and just add the TD and say Nolf would have lost.
  2. I made no assertion that Nolf would have rattled off 3 TDs had the score been 2 zip going into the 2nd.
  3. No, he didn't lose the match. You cannot just tack 2 pts on the final score. If the TD stayed, it changes the entire dynamic of the match and there is no way to tell what the final outcome would have been.
  4. Of course it will eventually. The question is when and where.
  5. We will never see those weight classes again. Even with Lalovic in the IOC, wrestling just does not hold enough sway. Try to enjoy what we still have while we have it.
  6. I rarely cracked the varsity lineup but still followed to this day. My younger brother never wrestled but I got him hooked as a fan and follows our high school team and other Colorado kids even though he is in Boston.
  7. There have been tournaments where only the semi finalists get to go for 3rd/4th. Not the NCAA's of course but still.
  8. I would assume unhappy. Pleased at Spencer Lee, and perhaps resigned to the fact that the Gable years are long behind and this is a different era.
  9. His seat is already hot. Fans and boosters have only so much patience.
  10. My father was 5'3 and about 139 lbs. When he died he was barely 100 lbs and was still twice the man you will ever be.
  11. I like Cassar, but I don't want him to get a 6th year. I prefer the narrative of making the team as a HWT after being passed over, winning it all the next year and riding into the sunset to bigger things.
  12. I think the right wrestler won, I just wasn't happy with the path the officiating took.
  13. That first call I could almost swear was worth swipes even with the roll through.
  14. So let's talk about the questionable calls of 141. I think the 2nd period should have been a TD for Diakomihalis and possibly even swipes. He had clear control with McKenna's back exposed. At the very least it should have been 2 TD 1 E. In the 3rd period, I am not convinced of Diakomihalis having control and it almost appears to be a make up call for the bad 2nd period call.
  15. I still don't like him, which is ok. We don't have to like everyone.
  16. I bet Steveson hopes he gets that 6th year. He wants a shot at revenge, and Cassar is up for the challenge!
  17. I doubt all three will finish with four titles, too many things can happen.
  18. Neither. The junior jinx is going to strike.
  19. Don't get me wrong, I am not a Mark Hall fan either.
  20. I don't know why, but I just do not like Valencia, good match, though stalling should have been called earlier.
