  1. Snyder would of been like a fish out of water.....flat and lifeless , and pinned. A fish on dry land is snyder on his back.
  2. only thing that never changes - our 65k guys keep coming up short in close matches I still feel Yanni is the best close match finisher at the world stage. And best result against bajarang
  3. air downey looks svelte with the new haircut and nike tat. Wrestling really well looks lighter on his feet too
  4. that match was a defensive one move type match until the last 30 seconds. When he tried that with Yanni he got crushed. Only when he opened up he beat Yanni but he continues to play that style overseas
  5. i think bono stole that line from ryan. Tom Ryans favorite line "take them to deep waters" osu #2 dual team in nation. Jordan big upgrade over Hoffman. Where they don't have an all american they at least have someone serviceable and not swiss cheese. Few positions that could be upgraded, namely 125 and 165, but no massive holes.
  6. 2014 minnesota beat penn state in a dual ; then flipped in national title 2015 oh state didn't feel like a great dual team lost several duals what other years ? gotta be a plethora here, as we all know teams fare differently in duals than tournaments. There's a troll wannabe wrestling fan who thinks since PSU was undefeated in duals and won the tournament last 4 years that the tournament champ is always the best dual team.
  7. I'd bet Askren told flo to go fly a kite on the non compete and Flo prbly didn't even ask him for one. - Askren is the one with the power here. I've always felt employers will throw non competes out if they think it will cost them talent - it's usually something they get you with because employees don't read what their signing or even think they can negotiate it or care about it at that time. And talking on a podcast is not anything that is intellectual property so it's not even needed for Askren - they only got willie on the high school rankings I'd guess Askren will keep his rokfin vlogs and still do flo - he may not even see it as a conflict of interest, though it's certainly weird in that if these two companies are direct competitors Askren was the very first rokfin poster , was posting everywhere on twitter about willie joining rokfin, always promoting rokfin in general, and is a best bud with martin. If all that is true and you join a competitor then I think you have to wonder what is going on Is Askren not making any money at rokfin and flo is giving a offer so large he can't refuse ? .....Maybe he just wanted the larger platform ? .I think I'm in the camp that there isn't much harm/or competition in askren doing frl that is going to hurt rokfin. Flo is already established and has live video content - people are going to go to flo first over rokfin because people want to watch matches. Until rokfin adds that , i don't see either hurting each others business. Although, askren doing a podcast together with willie on rokfin.........that would of drawn more interest to rokfin podcast and away from flo. Wonder why that didn't go down ? ........all in all , starting from the floerinis still having interests in both flo and rokfin it sounds like a weird dynamic from the top down.
  8. So sounds like martin wrote and signed willies non compete at flo, convinced him to break it to go to rokfin, promised there is nothing to worry about, and then makes willie front his own lawyer ??? Martin should be covering willies ass on this one imo Also damming to rokfin that askren , rokfins number one fan it seemed, moved to flo
  9. so did we ever find out how spencer vs gilman goes in the room if spencer is handling gilman i think he takes out fix no problem
  10. I think they have another ranked wrestler Alek Martin, maybe not competing ? not a town many people wanna live in is true. Not in a major city and not a boarding school. It's like a monroesville, which had the stiebers and cam tessari and another guy and never heard from again - elite talent in those smaller schools just don't grow on trees and these days if your not getting transfers your not elite. Without Jordan why go to Graham ??
  11. willies a knowledgeable; grass roots wrestling dude Awesome for the promotion of wrestling and the sport. But he is for sure more than a little self absorbed. "the greatest mind in wrestling"
  12. burroughs > dake and cox > taylor. All day, every day. This shouldn't even be a debate. We've seen this play out before. When one guy has another guys # - it usually doesn't change. Dake vs Taylor is a prime example. Dake could win 100 times though and fans would still pick taylor. I'm not picking michigan to beat ohio state anytime soon and neither am I picking dake to beat burroughs. It's a "show me" situation. As good as dake looks and as uber talented as he is , burroughs is the same with more experience and a good sample size history of beating dake at his own game. Winning close matches. I'm not picking jb to lose a close match to anyone on planet earth not named sidakov.
  13. would of been cooler if you ran into J'den Cox there
  14. how's bouzakis faring in the practice room ? bouzakis vs bartlett is probably a brawl
  15. True. alot of them do look like nerds. Does anybody really believe Pyles, Spey, or nomad actually wrestled ? I'm guessing they weren't pretty good if they did or they lied and said they did.
  16. i'm guessing some college could use him as a recruiting guru similar to what ohio state is doing Willie seems to like Zeb Miller; maybe some of those various independent guys can team up and form their own wrestling media company.
  17. already told ya'll cox doesn't like taylor (no inside info, just something you can see) And he told everyone his plans post worlds presser - he said decision will be based on who he wants to take out. yazdani/taylor or snyder/sadulaev God bless cox for whatever motivates him. He has good reason to dislike taylor for his whiny unsportsmanlike antics after losing to cox on one leg and then calling out cox at worlds. Hope Cox smashes him. Key for Cox is not to get cocky like Taylor did prior to meeting cox last time.
  18. so this must be why tom ryan was against the rtcs and in favor of the clubs
  19. truth be told the changing rtcs for fresh perspectives hasn't worked for ramos, molinaro, garrett, ed ruth, jordan oliver, etc. and most people thought it would - in actuality they got worse. Sometimes you just have to blame yourself. It's like saying JB needs fresh perspectives because he lost in the last seconds against the best in the world in russia two years in a row ? please. nebraska and ohio state were good enough for them to win gold but aren't now ? kyle hasn't stalled out - he's always lost matches to guys , won close , and never been a sadulaev who dominates and is levels above his competition. The margin for kyle is thinner - and always has been. The worlds loss was not really a surprise....maybe the problem was he was too focused on sadulaev and not his other matches ? This is kind of a grasping for answers type move instead of an inward look at himself. I just don't see the evidence that these moves work. Dudes that are confident in themselves don't make these moves. This is a sign for Kyle that he has lost confidence - in himself and by proxy his training. You would never see Yanni lose confidence in Grey. Or Burroughs lose confidence in manning, or derienger in smith. "put me at ease that I tried that option" - mr snyder is going through a wrestling crises right now and I hope he finds answers , but the real answer is it is himself that needs to step up to the plate and perform better and focus better, not other factors. Chance he gets worse mentally especially if this move doesn't payoff like he thinks it does. me thinks sadulaev is really playing with his head.
  20. maybe snyder just isn't as good as we all thought he was ? he's a little stiff - his athleticism and natural born potential has as much impact on training - theres only so much improvement to be made. maybe all those iowa lightweights that could never medal at worlds should of left iowa hawkeye wrestling club because the brands weren't good coaches and training wasn't the best.
  21. curious if there's more to this than the naked eye - just doesn't seem to make much sense.
  22. even more shocking is his relationship with rudis which is just down the road from columbus and connections with tommy rowlands - also rogue fitness out of columbus
  23. color me shocked - just because psu has the most talent most of these top athletes aren't going there. Dierenger, Imar, Dake, Burroughs etc aren't running to penn state. They have some school pride. tryan was bringing in top guys from other rooms including europeans - and snyder was still visiting other teams rooms for spars. isn't tervel snyders biggest tutor and best friend ? I don't think tervel can be in snyders corner now. I'm guessing coach ryan did not take this news too well - and for Snyder , to go to a rival takes some shine off his ohio state legacy. Not gonna be what a burroughs means to a nebraska. unpopular opinion - the difference in RTC rooms and coaching is pretty negligible. I've always thought that - all these guys are getting good coaching, they all train between each other anyway. If a okie state rtc wrestler loses to an iowa guy or zeke jones arizona state guy that doesn't mean the training is worse/better. Also - snyders got it completely wrong if he's making decisions based on following his girlfriend. Should be the other way around. He will never touch sadulaev again.
  24. logo change is whatever, but color scheme blows. it's like child color book red. dull disgusting hue. not very sharp, bad move. and they probably paid someone 100's of thousands for that children coloring book move.
  25. this is where i read the snyder interview - no idea if it's true , doubt snyder would say that, and doubt cox is losing 2 of 3 from snyder anyways
