    Almost always is not the same as always. You seem like a knowledgable fan so please do not be so ignorant to say that DeSanto does not apply this tactic. And when a wrestler directly attempts to force a pushout without initiating a takedown or other offensive action, by rule it is supposed to be called stalling. To be fair, he's not the only one who does this. I think that the rule is flawed and the referees never seem to call it correctly but that's an argument for another thread.

    Incorrect. Nothing in the rule book that supports your statement. But you know what is considered stalling per the rule book? Directly pushing your opponent out of bounds in the attempts to draw a stalling call on your opponent without attempting to initiate a scoring opportunity of your own. DeSanto makes a living on this.

    Bob Dole - do you have this info on good authority? I know at age 95, the eggs tend to get a little too scrambled.

    2020 Tickets On-Sale Now (18-March)

    I have a feeling that 2020 will be an epic fail as far as viewing experience goes. Maybe someone who has attended an event at the US Bank stadium can weigh in on this one. It seems that even if you are lower level, your seats are still set further back from the action since the pitch of the lower bowl is not very steep. Compare this to last year's at Cleveland. Even if you had bad seats higher up, you were still on top of all of the action and could view all of the mats. Cleveland, like most indoor areas, have their video boards in the center. . The video boards at this stadium are at the end zones so if you are anywhere on the yard-line seats and cannot follow the action if you have a bad seat. You don't have a direct view of the boards. I hope I'm wrong.

    9-5 Sam Stoll is going to NCAAs!

    signature win? a 1-0 vs Hermida Other than that, he got in on previous accomplishments. Consider this, the Purdue wrestler that beat Stoll in the wrestle-backs (and placed 8th) is sitting home for NCAAs

    Flo wrestling subscriptions

    Flo can be annoying at times and I'm in no way affiliated with the organization other that being a subscriber. Most of their talking heads are barely tolerable, the feed spotty at times, and for those who watched the big 10's, their cameramen need to pay more attention to the action on the mat that they're working. That being said, it's a great subscription for the price. Considering that those of us of a certain age never got to see most of what they broadcast, it's well worth the money. Seriously...did you ever think you'd be able to watch a senior level freestyle tournament in Siberia from the comfort of your own home? Growing up, the best we could do was view a couple minutes of freestyle once every 4 years when they were broadcast on the olympics. Want to watch a youth level national tournament? Better gas up the family truckster because there's no way you'd ever see that one otherwise. But because of Flo and $150 a year, you get to see all of that and much more. For those of you who say it's too much, ask yourself what else you're spending your money on? $0.42 a day! That's right...$0.42 per day.

    Seeding 174 NCAA?

    Posting the seeding criteria link from flo. There's more to it than who beat whom. There is a formula that weighs multiple factors and none of which are last year's results. Unless it's a situation like last year where coaches rank at 174 played a part (Zahid was #1 ranked after an unofficial win in the all star but both he and Hall went undefeated) the past remains the past. Either way, I don't see anyone #1 other than Hall due to his undefeated record. The rest of the round robin is up to debate. I'm calling 1. Hall, 2. Lewis, 3. Zahid, 4. Amine https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6131827-how-does-the-ncaa-seeding-process-work

    NCAA Made Big Mistake

    Another vote here for NYC. Great venue, no shortage of bars, hotels or restaurants. St. Louis has run it's course. I get it that it's easily to all of those in the midwest but there are plenty of fans in the rest of the country that would like to see it elsewhere.

    Last Iowa dual of the season is @ Okie State and realistically a prime situation for a DeSanto meltdown, win or lose. Judging by his actions so far, it's more likely if he pulls off the win. If such a thing happens, does Brands have the character to do the right thing and suspend DeSanto for the next scheduled competition?
