  1. First, I would say that it is poor timing and taste to bring up the "rape accusation", but obviously people have a right to their comments. With that said.... I will say this on the "accusation". I was just that. An accusation. I can say this. I have a very good friend who was new the girl on an acquaintance level. Again, that means he did not know her well and not more than a "hey what's up" level. I asked him once what he thought. He was pretty objective. He said he didn't really know. He did say that he he saw her out and partying pretty hard a couple times. To be accurate he was not saying he thought she was lying or the accusations were or were not false. He was saying that there were several different ways he could have seen it going. He said he didn't know her well enough to say that she was lying, but that he could have seen a scenario where she had been drinking or maybe did do something. From our conversation he felt he wasn't willing to go so far to say that she was maybe calling it rape when it wasn't, but also that he wasn't willing say that it didn't happen. Take from it what you want. Each person will probably have their own opinion.
  2. see earlier comment where I said I didn't me "much" in the literal since.
  3. yeah, the word much, was a bit much. haha.. I didn't mean it in a literal way, but it does read like that.
  4. ummmmm... Downey???? Is that a tradeoff for Zain
  5. Eh... lol... I still think Colon's is much better. Now if we are talking laces... those laces were nice. Dake had that guy broke after the first 7 points.
  6. Dake must have this forum pulled up on his phone. I bet he read all of the comments and said, thanks coaches'. Then went out and made those adjustments to point a lot of points on the board.
  7. well that was quick. So much for low scoring
  8. I thought JO looked pretty good. I felt like he should have got 2 when he go stuck on his back. I thought the initial exposure was his, but then he gave up 2 when he got tipped back over and caught on his back. He was in a couple of times. He is right there, and could be a medal threat at the Olympics. I think Yianni is a threat to. My feeling of Zain not so much anymore because he seems to have to many mistakes to not lose a match he shouldn't somewhere in the competition.
  9. What was Zain thinking hoping over the back. Okay, as I say that the idiot from Ukraine throws himself to his back with a 3 point lead and gets pinned. Fortunately for Zain that was an even bigger bonehead move.
  10. I like Gilman, but there is something about Colon that has always made me a fan. Even in his college days when he upended my MO Tigers at conference. In Gilman's defense he tends to do a great job hand fighting and driving his opponent toward the edge while still holding center. I think that is whey he doesn't get put on the clock much. We are often looking at his lack of attacks, but officials are looking more at how he controls the center. Him and Colon were virtually in the same over and under position, Gilman even blocking with his head, but because Colon had his back toward the edge, and was being driven backwards he got put on the clock. I too thought it was a questionable 2. Could Colon not challenge that? I thought maybe Colon started that throw before he stepped out. It was hard to tell though without replay. Either way it was a good match. Colon is going to be a tough draw at the trials. I thought his shape looked pretty good too. It will be interesting to see how he does as he continues to acclimate.
  11. I mentioned in a different thread that I felt Colon would be a threat if he could make the cut. I am glad he is having a good tournament. I have always felt that Colon gets kind of forgotten about because he isn't flashy. The guy has always had a great defense and if he gets on top he can score points in droves. I think he has the best gut wrench of an American. Including our greco guys. I am not saying he will be our rep. I do think that most people who give up one takedown will end up taking the loss. If he gets 2 takedowns in a match I think everyone takes a loss. If he gets on top twice he is going to get a turn and if it is in the center it is going to be more than one. Compound that with his defense and that is a lot of points to overcome. Zahid is very impressive as well. It will be interesting to see how his trajectory continues between now and the trial. I still like Deringer to right now though. Either way, Cox or Taylor will be our rep. I think it will be J'Den. Gilman and Fix are always close. They have wrestled so many times the past couple years it is always going to be a close match. They know each other to well. Snyder: At the end of the day he will be fine. I have said for a while that I think he needs to take a break. After the Olympics I hope we don't see him again until right before the next Worlds. That dude has been going at it hard for 6 years now. The body can only take so much and if he doesn't slow down his body is going to break down. I really don't buy the muscle thing. He has wrestled so many matches the last few years there is gobs of film on him. Him and JB are probably the most scouted U.S. Wrestlers in history. Dake: I am with the group who doesn't take much from his matches. Dake has always won. Whether he scores a ton of points or one point. Like JB, when he needs to score he usually can. Yes, I know that it can catch up with a person but really the only time it catches either of them is when it is a top world competitor. In those situations I don't think it is low scoring from keeping a match close. When the top 2 or 3 guys in the world face each other the matches are going to be close. I still think JB is our rep. I don't think JB has lost as much as it is made out to seem. Is he a little slower? sure. But you don't get 5 golds and several bronze by not knowing how to win.
  12. I'm looking forward to seeing Colon at the weight. Also, Zahid, Ringer, and Downey I think is interesting.
  13. My thoughts 57kg: Clark: If he is back, which i am guessing he will be by the qualifier. In no Clark: Rodriquez or Waters 65Kg: I say Meredith, maybe Eireman 74Kg: Didn't Lavalle take 5th? If so he is qualified. Nolf: He and Vincenzo should be an interesting one. I'm guessing the hope is that Vincenzo wins the NCAA. Otherwise he will have to beat Nolf. I imagine Nolf will win that last spot. 86kg: Tough call here. Brooks or Heflin Brooks: I don't see him getting in via NCAA, because I think Zahid wins that. 97kg: White 125Kg: This depends on Cassar Cassar: If he doesn't win the NCAA, which will be tough with Gable a year older. If not Cassar: Elam: tough call with Nevils, but with Elam's youth he has more growth by the trials IMO.
