  1. He is only a freshman and too many things can happen between now and then. Let's revisit this conversation in 2 years.
  2. Next meeting? Or next World's? As little as the Russians compete it could be the same thing.
  3. This is not a bold prediction, but I have a feeling from here out Sadulaev has Snyder's number.
  4. There is no intention of incorporating a "fair" system.
  5. Plus 2 more finalists and Gilman going for bronze. It is a good run.
  6. Let's follow this up with Dake, Cox, and hopefully Snyder.
  7. Why would I therapy for calling out a bad decision?
  8. Losses are ok, questionable calls bordering on screw jobs are not. The jury is still out whether this qualifies as a screw job though it is certainly a questionable call.
  9. This last beat the streets was a debacle.
  10. It was just Dake and Cox, I didn't chat much except ask if they were en route to a competition.
  11. Early this morning saw Kyle Dake and J'Den Cox while waiting in line for TSA at Denver International Airport. Apparently they are headed out to Turkey.
  12. It was an A and B pool positive point system. First place in the pool puts you in the gold match, second in the bronze, third place in pool fights for fifth place. A single loss could place you first, second, or third in your pool depending on how the A vs B vs C matches worked out. Jim Scheer in 88 had a single loss but finished third in his pool.
  13. Getting too ahead of ourselves much?
  14. It is going to be a long 4 months.
  15. Gilman and Stieber are both flukes. No medal between the two. Garrett, finishes sloppy could be a semi finalist or go out early. Cox and Green - good wrestlers with high medal potential but anti US bias hits and both finish 5th. Dake and Taylor - Big unknowns. Had success at various tourney against great opponents. I can see first time jitters or steamrolling through. Maybe a bronze between the two though not both. JB and Snyder - Nuff said Gwiz - can he repeat past success? I really want to see a huge medal haul, however this is the big stage and the rest of the world is good too and too many variables. Officiating is always suspect.
  16. All of them have a chance but temper the enthusiasm. Iran, Russia, Azerbajain, Cuba, etc will all field quality teams as well. A more realistic prediction is 3 medals possibly 4.
  17. What was dirty? And what was the final score of the 2nd match?
  18. If you are Valencia, what adjustment do you make?
  19. Magic Man could be emblazoned anywhere else and the cringe factor can be cut in half.
