    Being a sports (wrestling) fan... i.e. a real "fan" or "supporter" of the sport is much different that the Tribalist BS we're seeing from these Hawkeye/PSU/tOSU haters.
    * A real fan of wrestling  witnesses the absurd amount of talent and achievement that Ruth, DT, Zain, Nickal, and Nolf brought to that program and are awestruck
    * A real fan of wrestling witnesses the absurd amount of talent that this year's Hawkeye team had, and what Spencer is doing (in particular), and are awestruck by their achievements
    * A real fan of wrestling witnesses what Logan Stieber and Kyle Snyder brought to the tOSU program, and now that there is a post-graduate exodus from their RTC, is worried and is hopeful that they can return to that state of competitivenss
    * A real fan of wrestling may not like Gable Steveson's previous antics, but has been left awestruck at his talent, and what he may have the opportunity to do at the upcoming Olympic Games, and WILL root for him to win gold
    * A real fan of wrestling realizes that PD3 is exactly who everyone thought he was, and wishes that he would develop some humility and appreciation for not just the sport, but really, for himself as a human being.  
    Sure... I prefer tOSU.  I'm from that area of the country.  There's some semblance of tribalism there.  But... Was I still rooting to see "greatness" this weekend, regardless of their origin?  You betcha. 
    Loved seeing Gilman put his stamp on the 57kg class, and representing the USA.  Loved seeing JO getting his chance to shine.  Loved seeing Dake and the potential passing of the baton.  Loved seeing DT and his workmanlike win over a VERY familiar opponent.  Loved seeing two former Buckeyes get after it, and "Captain America" emerging victorious once again.  Loved seeing Gable absolutely demolish all adversaries.  
    Anyone who cries out and states otherwise only admits their tribalism.  Good luck with that.

    I love kale - sautéed with a little bacon and onion, it's really tasty.  However I think some do find it a bit bitter for their taste.

    Kennedy Blades and Kylie Welker are high schoolers and they are both in the challenge tournament finals.  FWIW Blades beat Welker 16-6 last weekend but they went different weights for the actual trials.

    Glad to know I'm not crazy. We only have access to two mats, right? I can hear Bader calling one of the matches in the background of the audio on 3.

    I say this as a lifelong Greco guy, WFS is amazing and I think it absolutely deserves center stage, but Greco at this level is a boring spectator sport.

    the fact that USA wrestling has allowed Peacock to stream trials after having multiple wrestling platforms already in place is just a joke.

    I'll say one final thing on Eierman because the topic is overplayed for everyone. Wrestling Eierman the first time typically is an advantage for Eierman. After people get a feel for his style, they adjust and beat him. 
    Eierman beats Yianni on a fluky scramble. Yianni wins the next 3 straight.
    Eierman beats McKenna. McKenna - between folk & free - I believe has won 6 straight.
    Eierman beats Josh Alber. Alber adjusts and wins in a 1-takedown match.
    Now Lee. The issue with Eierman is that he is extremely predictable and therefore, easy to game plan for. He has a right side shuck by and a blast double. But he isn't a freak athlete like Ferrari or Burroughs, so people can shut down the double. 
    Cael coached Lee to avoid attacking Eierman's right leg directly and to watch for the blast double. So in the last two matches, Eierman has a counter takedown while Lee has 4 takedowns. Zero off counters.

    Nice, I get another year of hearing how Iowa has completely changed how Jaydin wrestles while realizing he is the same guy he was freshman year.

    The only guy they got over PSU was Spencer. They did a good job of elevating them to AA level, but Spencer is the only guy they've been able to break through with and he's a generational talent.
