  1. He would, simply because he and I have different views on religion. But he’s also capable of respecting those who don’t share his views, which is a rare thing these days.
  2. It was simply an attempt at edgy comedy. I’ll stick to my day job, lol.
  3. Holy smokes, J’Cox gets his revenge after all. That dude has a direct line to the Big Guy. I wouldn’t want to cross him.
  4. I don’t understand why some people insist on interpreting Dake’s words in the most outlandish fashion. Surely we’re all familiar with stories of overweight, smoking, drinking, unhealthy slobs at 35 finding the motivation to change everything about their lifestyle and by 40 are fit, lean, and healthy? Scientifically, biologically they are probably younger on a cellular or systemic level. The old, “my doctor says I’ve got the (insert characteristics) of someone half my age” type scenario. If Dake feels his body is healthier now than at 25, I don’t find that all that hard to believe or outrageous. Sheesh!
  5. Saw all sessions in Barcelona, ‘92. Met up with most of them team at an establishment afterwards. John Smith was absent, best as I can recall, which isn’t great tbh.
  6. No love for Matt Demaray from MN? I know he had a few losses, but when he made the finals as an 8th grader, that was unheard of at the time. He won 3 in a row before being shocked in semis as a senior. He then won 2x NCAA titles at Wiscy, and then 4 straight US opens. He beat B Satiev at the ‘94 World Cup as well. He “looked” more like a D1 wrestler as a freshman than anyone I’ve ever seen.
  7. Funny story about Trice. His teammates begged me to introduce him as Jerry at the Mizzou dual, which I did. His face was priceless and his teammates were rolling with laughter. Dom Bradley got a kick out of it as well. The only one not amused, besides Trice, was the Mizzou event coordinator. Some things are just worth it.
  8. I like Metcalf. He’s been mentored by Dresser, has name recognition, and enjoys the rural, hunting lifestyle. I could see Borrelli as well.
  9. Cliff Moore? I’d like to see what Schwab could there as well.
  10. So many people have said Cox was irresponsible for leaving his cut so close, but if we believe he thought he had plenty of time and showed up early, now that becomes evidence that he knew weigh ins were earlier? Seems you’re interpreting his actions in whatever negative light fits your narrative. Whether or not anyone else was told by KJ to weigh in after 8 is irrelevant to the assumed authority theory. He told Cox, that’s all Cox knew.
  11. How many times has Cox weighed in at a USAW event in the age of COVID protocols? Do the modified procedures add credence to the argument that a reasonable person might believe that he was to weigh in later than published, since only a few wrestlers were in his position of a delayed start and there was a clear effort to reduce crowds? It seems reasonable to me that he wouldn’t have questioned KJ under these specific and unprecedented circumstances even if he had known the published weigh in time was 8, suspecting that limited exceptions were granted in the spirit of COVID social distancing.
  12. So I guess I’m wondering if KJ picked him up at the hotel or was there a USAW van, or what? I’m a little surprised that they were so isolated that they didn’t realize everyone else left for weigh ins at 7ish. The lack of situational awareness is surprising to me.
  13. For those with experience at these high level tournaments, does Cox rent his own car, book his own hotel, and drive himself to the arena? Or does his coach pick him up/arrange those things?
