  1. In a show of respect for what Gable accomplished this summer, Hawkeye fans put the sport above their own and rose to give a standing ovation to Gable. It was a first class act, given the rivalry, and as noted, by the greatest fans of the sport! Again, congratulations Hawkeye fans for being the best ambassadors of the sport!
  2. Just wanted to tip my hat to the Hawkeye fans for their acknowledgement of Gable Stevenson. What a class act from the best fans of wrestling! Bar none.
  3. jcjcjc.. Kudukhov wasn't passive with his skills. I do see similarities if Kyle is less passive. Notice, to my point, Kudukhov had the ability to surrender points and still win. I say this as evidence that Kyle has the skills to open up.
  4. I think I understand what you are trying to ask. If I may be so bold, can you spot any similarities is styles? Couldn't attach it so...
  5. I stand by my earlier post: Wouldn't it be amazing if Kyle Dake knew what the rest of the world knows? When he opens up, he is simply lights out. His hips and scrambling ability, along with his par terre keep him in every match no matter whom. More importantly, he can give up points, and still overcome deficits when attacking. JB can also score against the worlds best when he opens up but as an old man myself, I understand his reluctance as age pursues him. Going to be an amazing night!
  6. I just want to take a moment to first, wish Jordan Oliver the best in his pursuit to qualify his weight for the Olympics! Of course he can! Will it be difficult, of course! I'd like to go on record saying that I believe he can. I saw no reason in his style, his competitiveness, conditioning or post trials mentality to assume otherwise. Remember fellow teammate Coleman Scott folks. Secondly, I want to congratulate our entire squad of Olympians. I am actually very excited about this team and our coaching staff and the strides they have all made! As a former coach, I had the opportunity to routinely say to my athletes what we all know...DREAM BIG and TRAIN HARD! With respect for all our 2021 Olympians!

  8. I missed that!!! Many thanks GreatWhite!
  9. Congrats Wyatt! I would much rather spend my time looking at the huge accomplishments of these young men so thanks lu_alum.
  10. Just noticed Yahya Thomas had an equally impressive tournament as the 25th seed. I don't know him personally, like I know Patrick, so the slight was never intended. Well done to both!
  11. Just wanted to tip my hat to Patrick McKee. #15 seed goes 7-1 to take third. Loses to 2 seed in 2nd round and goes through 16,23,5,19,7 and 4 seeded wrestlers to capture third. Heck of an effort! Congrats Patrick!
