    You must still be pissed from the Penn State vs OK State match. I feel like I haven’t had any issues since then that wasn’t my internet connections fault. 

    I am still butt hurt about that match.  I canceled right after, but hey, if everyone is now vouching for Flo then obviously I should reconsider.

    Also, I’m a big fan of Askren’s addition.  I think he’s pretty insightful, his stories are pretty funny, and the malcontent in me finds it amusing when he gives Pyles a hard time!

    Austin DeSanto, Mickey Rat, and Ratso RizzoImage result for austin desanto Image result for mickey rat Related image


    Now show us your handsome mug!

    I’m a big fan of this kid: did his own “Vision Quest” by cutting down to get a chance at Lee, *beat* Lee (injured or not, Lee put his foot on the line), and he’s freakin’ relentless.  Pressure, pressure, pressure.  Can’t quit, won’t quit.  Did he act out?  Yeah, but he was straight outta high school and onto a national stage.  If there was video of me at my worst moments at 18 or 19, it would make this kid look angelic, lol 

    Yeah, other kids have handled the spotlight better, but you got parents spearing kids in the back, so he’s not the worst ever.

    BTW, I wouldn’t tackle a kid, I’d have “have a word” with his dad.

    You mean Bryant flew, in fog so dense that the LA Police grounded their helicopters, for 20 years?

    “Bad weather would not necessarily have prevented Bryant’s helicopter from flying, because it should have been equipped with instruments that allow pilots to fly in inclement conditions, experts said.”


    But, yeah, it looks like the weather definitely played a part.  I guess he figured “I’ve done this a million times, no big deal,” just like Schultz probably figured “this dude is crazy, but it’s not like he’s gonna kill me or something.”

    125 - Robles/Lee as back up (deserves an HM here) 

    133- Jordan Oliver

    141 - logan stieber

    149 - z retherford

    157 - dake 

    165 - JB

    174 - zahid Valencia 

    184 - ed ruth/bo nickal

    197 - cox

    285 - snyder

    I like your list, but who is your pick if you gotta choose between Ruth and Nickal?

    Hard to argue with this team as a whole.  I guess you could move Steiber to 133 and add Russell at 141.  A couple of 3X NC Hodge winners that might get consideration would be Ringer at 165 (where do you put Dake then?) and Nickal at 184.

    I did exactly that with Steiber and Russell at first but I wanted to slot guys where I thought they were at their best.

  6. Saw something on this topic and figured it would be fun to throw out my picks and get you guys’ opinions, too

    Here’s my team:

    125 - Matt McDonough

    133 - Tony Ramos

    141 - Logan Steiber

    149 - Zain Retherford

    157 - Jason Nolf

    165 - Kyle Dake

    174 - Chris Perry 

    184 - Ed Ruth

    197 - J’Den Cox

    HWT - Kyle Snyder

    I wanted to slot guys in at weights where they were at their best, that’s why I put Stieber at 141 and Dake at 165.  

    I know Ramos only won one title at 133 but he was a two-time finalist and didn’t feel like there were any better options.  I guess an argument could be made that 133 seemed weaker, or that it was tougher and that’s why nobody repeated at that weight. 

    Let’s hear some of your lists!

    35 is not 26 and even the 26 is not entirely true and for WW2 it is more like 20-25.  The biggest reason for that is over 50% of soldiers drafted for ground combat units were 18 but by 1945 were 20-25.  Of those 18 year olds that were drafted, over 80% went to replacement companies/battalions.  The draft was amped up a whole year before the outbreak of war in 1941.

    Vietnam had a one year tour, hence 19.

    It would've been extremely rare for a 35 year old to be drafted for a ground combat unit.  Maybe if he had a criminal record but was still in good physical condition.

    You have to dig deeper than the headline on a google search.

     To be clear, you’re disputing the average age of troops in WWII, but you agree Wayne was a douchebag, right?

    Oswald did not spend an hour shooting JFK nor John Wilkes Booth an hour shooting Lincoln.

    A reputation is ruined in an instant of stupidity or deliberate action.

    You’re comparing this kid’s actions to those of Lee Harvey Oswald and John Wilkes Booth?  You’re being ridiculous.

    Well, you told me I wasn't... had to take a look at my membership card to remind me.  And my PSAT, SAT, GRE, and MAT scores.  Yes, I'm smart.



    Meanwhile, you think Gross outsrcambled DeSanto, even while working with Askren on outside ankle technique for months now.



    There was a kid we called “Dirt Hill,” scored crazy high on the ASVAB, shoulda been a Navy nuke guy.  Smart AF but too dumb to wash the back of his head.  We always had to remind him, “just cuz you can’t see it don’t mean we can’t”

    We’d be at Applebee’s with a “genius” who still had cammie paint on the back of his head.

    big chance for snyder! 


    Yeah, I didn’t think Snyder had a chance against Sadulaev either before Snyder switched camps.  I still don’t think he’ll win, but I hope he’s more competitive if they wrestle again.

    What’s the feeling of the average Russian fan on the situation?  Do you view PED use like the average American fan views it?  Do you think the claims were exaggerated, or even false?  

    Also, If your athletes still get to compete then the sanctions are toothless, right?

  11. I think Flo used to be great for wrestling and I still think they’re good, but I don’t visit the site anymore.  I can’t see myself visiting again now that their rankings are behind the paywall.  I just get the Big Ten To Go option for wrestling season and cancel after Big Tens.  I really like their podcast, though!  

    I had a Flo subscription but cancelled it after the PSU-OkSt debacle a few years ago.  I still hear a lot of complaints about their streaming so I’m gonna hold off on trying it again until I hear a lot more positive feedback and they offer the month-to-month option again.  I feel like most of us consumers aren’t big on being locked into contracts.  That’s a big reason I won’t go back to cable.  Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc. all have month-to-month options, so that’s what I use.  

    Thats just my take.

    Tobus, I wish you had been interested in that second book of mine. There is one story in it devoted to this VERY topic!


    What books have you written?  I’m guessing I can find them on Amazon?

    Also, I think an NFL cornerback would make a fantastic wrestler.
