  1. I know twins that did this at an alumni event. Both were very good and 1 was top 3 on the US greco latter and still training. They switched halfway through the match.
  2. What Americans are wrestling for other countries?
  3. We really struggle. Greco is beyond terrible. We'll never produce quality wrestlers that can win internationally if our refs don't call matches the same as the rest of the world. I believe for the most part they don't understand what's going on in front of them. The US has 2 decent refs.
  4. There has been an interesting study on covid. Low levels of D are a very significant contribution in contracting it and dieing from it. Darker skined people have lower levels of D. Vitamin C and D is very advantages in fighting covid especially for dark complected people.
  5. The US will back out before any other countries in my opinion. I'm actually surprised we are being allowed to compete.
  6. I'm anxious to see him complete against equally as athletic big guys. American heavies ain't like Russian heavies.
  7. What are the details around not making it? Was he delayed getting there or just didn't make weight before weight ins completed because he was to heavy.
  8. 57 Arujau 65 JO? 74 No clue can't go wrong. 86 D.T. 97 Snyder 125 Gabe.
  9. I'm looking forward to seeing this match one day. I always thought Zahid got out of position when coming up from a half shot or stopped shot. Sounds like J.B. figured him out. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  11. After Tab Thacker was mentioned I couldn't help but bring him up.
  12. Anyone remember Erlan Van Lidth. He was a pretty amazing individual. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. I'm not disrespecting the kid just critiquing what I see as his biggest shortcoming on the mat. I'm not saying he won't be successful just that he will have problems if he doesn't make adjustments. As a Minnesota guy I said there was no way Dylan Ness and Seth Gross would ever have success a in college. So I tend not to make predictions anymore. Every year I am surprised by wrestlers who just don't pan out and by those who come out of nowhere. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. He creates bad pressure. He leans and pushes. He will not be able to bull around DI wrestlers and will pay for his bad position and over pushing if he doesn't adjust. He's getting away with it by being stronger and more physical but in college that advantage will go away and he will be left with only being out of position. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. He is young yet, but I watched a match of his from state against a 7th grader and a greco match against a Peru wrestler. He has some very bad habits that will keep him from having success at higher levels if he doesn't make changes. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  16. It's very similar to what we called an outside carry. We would do this with elbow or tricep control instead of grabbing the neck. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  17. This was an amazing match. Both guys pushed themselves to the absolute limit, maybe set a record for points scored. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  18. Can't be the best in the world if you're not the best in the room. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  19. Hall was 19. He would have turned 20 early in his Freshman year. January I think. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  20. Here's a nice video that touches on pulling vs pushing.
  21. I hate to be negative on 2 college studs but this to me was a glaring example of how bad our upper body skills are in America. How long do you think either of these guys would last in that position against Bay? That is a pulling position not pushing. You gain advantage by getting shoulder position and creating momentum in your opponent from their pressure.
  22. Honda civic is a good reliable car. Way better than a Ferrari that's out of gas.
