  1. Flo’s streaming servers are getting nervous even thinking about this one.
  2. Yeah, that was another great match. I think we need a round robin of Burroughs, Dake, Chamizo, and Sidakov on the next Flo event to settle this.
  3. So any chance we could schedule another round of these for next weekend and get JB involved...?
  4. DT just made Martin look like a fish (side note MM is not a fish). Yeesh.
  5. Does Flo really sue parents taping their kids at events Flo broadcasts? That’s crazy if true. One of my most valuable possessions is a collection of DVDs my dad gave me when I graduated of every match he recorded while I wrestled in high school.
  6. The thing is Flo has just been sitting on everyone’s yearly subscription fees since the nation has been shut down. They haven’t been to any events, no travel fees, haven’t hosted any events. They were probably gearing up to pour a ton of money into Olympic wrestling coverage. They will spend a lot of money on this event, but they also haven’t spent any money since NCAA wrestling ended in March.
  7. Oh man I’m a big fan of Hoagie as an individual and his style (not his team though haha), but DT would do dirty things to him. Hoagie will be ready in a few years, but he’s not ready for DT level smoke quite yet. Then again as I type that out in the back of my mind I’m thinking about DT wrestling Drew Foster and how that turned out. Man I really hope there aren’t any injuries to our top guys at the event.
  8. Agree with all of this. Martin may be the toughest sell of the batch, but he’s a mostly known name. Valencia would be another interesting one. If he really let it fly against DT that’s another guy that I think could possibly score before DT inevitably takes over and does whatever he wants.
  9. I still feel like the storylines of DT and Downey are much better, but the match with Ringer would actually be better. I’m in the camp that whole heartedly believes a motivated and pissed off DT completely annihilates Downey. I’m not even sure how fun it would be for fans. I think against Ringer DT is motivated, but not pissed off, which leads to a better match. Who knows though. Unfortunately we probably won’t ever find out what happens when DT and Downey face off.
  10. That’s a good point. I was thinking more along the lines of fans being more interested in Ringer vs. DT than Abounader or Amine (no disrespect to either one of those guys). But you’re right that no replacement will fill the shoes of Downey for a myriad of reasons.
  11. Also brings name recognition to the match. The more I think about it, if ringer is game that’s probably the best fit to replace Downey.
  12. Ringer intrigues me. DT would probably beat up on him, but if Ringer is 100% healthy I think he could (maybe) score at least lol.
  13. The irony of this statement is going to go way over your head. But just know it’s being appreciated by others on the board.
  14. He said “Sarah I would whip your ass you goofy lil wet nugget.” Even if he did mean wrestling does that make it any better that he would whip a 120 pound females ass....?
  15. His exact tweet to Sarah Hildebrandt was “Sarah I would whip your ass you goofy lil wet nugget.” It was deleted quickly like the rest of his tweets. There is a screenshot in the video posted a few pages back.
  16. Side note, if anyone wants to see a Pat Downey III level meltdown, check out his dads twitter @pdowney2. It won’t take long to figure out where PD3 gets it from.
  17. Also thought of D) pats dad. Who commented the dumbest thing I’ve ever read under Dake’s tweet supporting women’s wrestling. Apples don’t fall far from the tree I suppose.
  18. I’m trying to figure out if you A) can’t read or B) are blatantly ignoring the fact that Downey threatened to whoop a woman’s ass on Twitter. If that was your wife or daughter would you care more? I mean dude come on, he deserved what he got.
  19. Not to completely miss the point of the subject, but why is everyone freaking out on Flo on social media? As a company the bottom line for them is making money. They obviously have access to viewership numbers on everything they film live and videos they post. If they see that they don’t get the same hits on women’s matches as they do men’s matches, then it’s not their moral responsibility to offer the same contract to the women. Dake vs. Chamizo is going to be a crazy viewership draw. Whether it’s right or wrong, the women just don’t have a headliner that can compete with that strictly from the standpoint of generating views. I think people miss the mark on Flo’s goal for the sport. Their goals are centered around making money and growing their platform. Hence why you can’t pay monthly and have to pay a yearly fee. If they grow the sport in the process then that’s great. I feel like people really need to change their perspective on what Flo brings to the table for wrestling. It’s a platform to give us as fans easier access to watch matches, replays, documentaries, etc. But at the end of the day they have bottom lines and it’s about revenue. As for women’s wrestling, I’m a huge fan. I love watching our senior level girls. Helen Maroulis’ run to gold in Rio is one of my favorite US Olympic moments. But that being said, it’s not Flo’s job to promote women’s wrestling as much as the community wants it to be. The onus for doing that is on USA wrestling, UWW, AWW, NWCA, and the women themselves. PD’s initial comments were insensitive, but then he started getting flat out childish and disrespectful in some back and forth with Sarah Hildebrandt and Jacarra Winchester. The dude just doesn’t know when it’s time to stop.
  20. Staying at UNC. Glad Coleman and company got everything straightened out.
  21. Should’ve added 165 or 174 depending on what Whittlake does. You’re right though, Monday isn’t taking Wittlake’s spot. He’d have go to the other open weight. But sounds like Okie St. isn’t an option for him though, so just a hypothetical anyways.
  22. Surprised to see Ohio State on the list. Minnesota and Nebraska do make sense roster wise though. Guess we get to wait and see now.
  23. Athletes are coming back in phases right now. They are doing the sports in order by when the season starts. Unfortunately wrestling is lower on the priority list and they got the latest return to campus date (along with some spring sports), which is August 3rd. I have no clue what the return to campus looks like for other schools but August 3rd is only about 6 weeks away.
  24. Ah gotcha. My update to that answer for #1 would be Princeton then. I’m far from an expert on eligibility and I know some of the folks above mentioned it may not be possible. But if it were, I think that fit would be phenomenal. Parker was Princeton’s 174 last year and he was a senior. So between K Monday/Cuomo they could go 165/174 however the coaching staff feels works the best. That 1-2-3 punch of both Monday’s and Cuomo through the middle would be awesome for Princeton. Add that to Glory and Brucki and you’re starting to fill out an upper tier team. Also will add that whatever Ayres is doing up there is working fantastically for Quincy. He’s far exceeded the expectations I had for him coming out of high school, especially stepping in and going as a true freshman. I remember watching UNC recruit Mason Phillips beat up on Quincy at Super 32 a few years ago. Their college careers have been completely different stories though. Quincy has been a stud and was well on his way to an AA finish as a true sophomore, while Phillips hasn’t been able to crack the starting lineup + has been hurt constantly at UNC. I think Ayres would do a nice job elevating Kennedy’s level as well.
  25. This are good questions. 1) Kennedy has always had a hard time cutting weight because of his frame. He had to make the jump from 157 to 165 because he couldn’t physically make 157 anymore. If he does transfer I could absolutely see 174 being on the table in his eyes. He has the length and frame to go there. I’m not sure how strength would hold up against some 174 pound hammers though. I also don’t believe him going 174 factors into UNC’s plans for next year either. Devin Kane said in a recent interview he’s ready to get back on the mat for the Heels at 174 next year, where he was a blood round wrestler at the 2019 NCAA tournament. Clay Lautt will then naturally move up to 184 as he has the frame for it. He was the 2020 ACC champion at 174 pounds. There’s really just not room for Monday at UNC anywhere other than 165 pounds. Maybe that’s also part of the decision for him? 2) My obvious answer for this is UNC at 165 haha. But if I can’t pick that then I’ll pick Oklahoma State at 165 for a year. If any coaches can tap into his ridiculous upside and help him with consistency I think the staff in Stillwater could do it. This will also make it way easier for me to keep rooting for him than if he transferred to another ACC school (which I’m pretty confident that wouldn’t happen). 3) I don’t want him to go anywhere in the ACC. I personally think him going 174 would be a mistake if he can cut safely to 165. He would lose some of the advantages that make him such a unique wrestler if he went 174. All the slick explosive attacks that worked so well at 157/165 would be more likely to be met with sheer horse power at 174. Even in practice clips I’ve seen our 174 last year Clay Lautt could give Monday all he wanted, and Lautt is a fringe top 20 guy at 74. Sorry for the length of the answers. But great questions.
