    tigerfan got a reaction from jammen in Flo Wrestling is good/bad for wrestling   
    Lest we forget, ESPN expressed their desire to support and promote wrestling by advocating for a dual team championship several years ago.  Had that happened (thanks a lot Carl), who's to say how much their coverage and promotion of wrestling would have grown by now.  Unfortunately, Flo is what we were left with. Without looking, my guess is PSU fans will express unqualified support for Flo due to the uncomfortable reality that a better future with ESPN was shot down by their living god.

    tigerfan reacted to scramble in This is Weird: Jaydin Eierman replacing Zain Retherford   
    I don't think "to hard to explain" is the issue.  I think it is edicate and out of respect for Eierman.  Which is the professional thin to do.  It would be disrespectful to put out a release that says.....  "Zain pulled out of Pan Ams and Yianni decline for x,y,z reasons.  Therefore, USA areached out to Molinaro who also declined due to weight issues.  Oliver, who was next also could not make weight on short notice and was also displaying a form of protest for his training partner (tongue and cheek there).  Next, USA was informed that McKenna also would not be able to compete on short notice, then went to the next guy on the list, Eirman."  I don't think that kind if a release would be appropriate. 
    Now they could say "USA wrestling would like to thank Eireman and the Missouri Tigers for always having their guys ready to compete.  Despite Eirman being further down the list, USA is looking forward to an outstanding performance that replicates Missouri tiger Zach Elams Junior World's performance.  Elam was called up on a moment's notice as well and was ready to go. Despite being 4th down the ladder Elam went on to claim the Junior world's gold medal. USA has the same confidence in Eireman.  Thank you Mizzou for always stepping in when called upon". That would be okay to release:-). 
    In all seriousness, I think Eireman will do fine. There is not a huge separation between the top 6.  Yes Yianni and Zain are maybe a step in front but those guys mentioned above are all pretty good and can go back and forth.  The Pan Ams is not the world championship. Eireman will get plenty of wins there.

    Cevion Severado, Malik Johnson, Peyton Mocco, Jeremiah Kent.  With Mizzou's track record, I'd be shocked if at least one of these 4 doesn't AA.

    And lighter gloves do more damage per punch even if fewer punches are thrown. I don’t know of that study, which is why AHamilton’s claim is not backed by evidence. I’m not claiming one is worse than the other-just that we don’t know which is worse and it’s very possible MMA is in fact much more dangerous than boxing (but to reiterate, we don’t know).

    Joe's track record with Houdashelt, Mayes, Lavallee, Eierman, Mauller, is tough to beat.  He's a fantastic middleweight coach, and a first class person. He wiil be missed more than most people realize.

    It absolutely is.  And it's awesome that we can have a discussion like this.  Cox is an all-out stud and he's just a top 3 American.  Taylor and Dake are reigning world champs and can't crack the top 3.  
    10 years ago an argument over top 3 Americans would have included reigning champ Cejudo and a pair of 7th place finishers in Mocco and Askren.  Hrovat (12th), Schwab (14th), Zaddick (19th) and Cormier (missed weight) rounded out the team.  
    The work done by USA Wrestling in the past decade is truly amazing.

    True, but both came in injured and didn't get a lot of mat time prior to the season.  Their early results showed that.  But Severado at least won his last 3 opens, albeit against mostly lower division guys, but still.  Johnson's injury recovery took longer.  Both come more highly regarded than Mauller was.  Unfortunately, I've moved away from Columbia and no longer have first hand knowledge about the practice room.  Ironically, of the four, Mocco might be the only one who doesn't start.

    Smith is really big on culture.  Not so much credentials.  Obviously, Smith thought Todd was the best fit for TigerStyle and the team culture. No doubt this is a great opportunity for Todd, let's see what he does with it.
