  1. Couldn't find it in Track, does anybody know where updated brackets/results can be found?
  2. Sounds fun. You have a link?
  3. The original is "view only", so you just need to click "file" and "make a copy", rename with your team name and then you can edit (all wrestlers are preloaded for each seeding option, so just need to pick the ones you want). Instructions are in the upper right. The guy that runs it has his email listed at the bottom of the instructions if you have any further difficulties.
  4. Just plugging my favorite yearly NCAA pick em pool. I like the format of this one better than any of the others that I've done. And while I'm all for charity, I like that most of the money goes to actual payouts in this one ($22 per entry, $2 goes to the guys that run it). Pick one wrestler for each top 16 seed, and four from the remaining seeds, no limit to how many wrestlers you can pick from each weight, highest scoring teams win. If you can run a google doc and have Venmo or PayPal, pretty easy to get set-up. https://sites.google.com/site/highrollerwrestling/ncaa-challenge-2018
  5. Gwiz rolls, 10-0 in under two minutes.
  6. Taylor mostly just controlling center in the 2nd and showing good head hands defense. Gets TD and lace at the end, holds off Torreblanca for a solid 8-0 win!
  7. TD, and may have been a passivity in there, DT up 4-0 at the break.
  8. Zain gets caught underneath attempting a lace, stuck by Argentina... no bueno
  9. Gilman down 3-1 at break, But guessing he gases the cuban in the 2nd
  10. Taylor with the tech over Venezuelan a minute into the 2nd period. Looked pretty rusty in the 1st, turned it up on his TD attempts in the 2nd.
  11. Nice team win there, Nebraska needed some positive momentum after tough loss to Penn State last weekend.
  12. 14-14 heading into the final bout. Like White's chances to close this thing out for Big Red.
  13. 57KG - Spencer Lee (has been dominant at every other level, think he is our biggest Gold threat at this weight, Fix and Gross are not too far off alternative options) 65KG - Yianni (just brings something different, similar to Lee has won at younger age levels, only legit Gold contender in my book.. although if the JO from this past weekend shows up for 2 days, who knows?) 74KG - JB (pretty much a toss-up with Dake, but JB is a total of about 2 seconds away from being 2-0 against Sidakov, so I think he takes the next matchup assuming he makes it to Tokyo) 86KG - David Taylor (having already knocked off Yazdani twice, definitely had the chops to bring home another gold, assuming he can get healthy in time) 97KG - Cox (in my opinion he is our best available option to beat Sadulaev, assuming that I could make the decision for him and have him prepare for 97KG and he competes properly bulked up for the weight class. I do feel he is ACTUALLY cutting to 86KG though, so this is more of a fantasy pick according the the format OP laid out.) 125KG - Gable (was pretty disappointed with Gwiz at 2019 worlds, assuming Gable continues to mature and get stronger, would love to see how he fairs on the Olympic stage) **If Cox is indeed going 86KG, I would plug him in at 86KG due to unknown health status of DT, and then have Snyder as my 97KG rep**
  14. Really wish the ding dong commentating the 3rd place mat would fix the audio.. #FloLife
  15. Agreeing with OP. Cox is our best wrestler at present, maybe even the best p4p in the world. And after listening to his post-match interview, I'm convinced that he will be going 97 next year, for the following two reasons: 1. Cutting weight sucks - so why do it if you feel like you are the man to beat? Cox is a HUGE 92, looks to already be very lean (KJ stated he is "leaner" and "stronger" than last year), and admittedly had a pretty tough/miserable time making 86. So now with new same day weigh-in procedures, I just dont see it happening. 2. Cox wants to build his legacy - for some reason, myself included, people have always somewhat overlooked his abilities/accomplishments, and before this year was never really in the top P4P discussions for best wrestler in the world. This year he has been on a mission to not only win, but win with dominance, never satisfied, and for the most part smashing the competition. He mentioned the legacy talk in his post-match interview, so what better way to build a legacy than to take out Captain America and then knock off the consensus "best wrestler on the planet" Sadulaev at the Olympic games?
  16. 57: Nahshon 65: Yianni 74: Dake 86: DT 97: Cox 125: Gable
  17. No argument from me. If I had to pick it today, I'd pick J'den for the spot at 97. However, I do like his chances better against the likes of DT/Yazdani vs Snyder/Sadulaev for eventual Olympic gold, assuming the weight cut is attainable.
  18. With how he has progressed and looked this year, I'd consider it a toss-up at 97, and I'd favor him over a DT coming back from injury. I know this was a non-olympic weight, but the guy seems to be on a completely different level than his competition right now.
  19. Congrats to J'Den! 2-time world champ, solid 4-0 win.
  20. To add, he won on criteria with a tied score. These two are so evenly matched, it may always come down to simply who scores last. With wrestlers this clutch and this high-level scoring ability, advantage seems to go to whoever is trailing late. Glad to see JB finish strong and bring home another medal, not a damn thing to hang his head about. He is one of the proven greats in wrestling, and it now seems that Sidakov may be an emerging great as well.
  21. With Amine making semis, it looks like the University of Michigan has qualified as many Olympic weights as the entire USA team (both in different weights). Congrats to them, much more work to be done by us.
