  1. Hard to to reach your full potential when your dad is telling your college coach he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
  2. According to Flo, Wilfried Tanefeu is a just a 3rd year wrestler. He won cadet 113 and is entering his junior season. I'm assuming he's only going to get bigger and better.
  3. Could any state beat Jersey in a freestyle dual? 57kg Rivera 61kg Suriano 65kg Molinaro/McKenna 70kg Green 74kg Burroughs 79kg McFadden 86kg Myles 97kg? 125kg?
  4. Spencer Lee, watch his interviews and the way he talks about his teammates and other competitors. He's like a clone of Strittmatter.
  5. The wrong call was made. Unfortunately, that's the ugly beauty of sports. The ref's aren't perfect. Give Zain the spot and move on.
  6. DM TR Foley on Twitter. Im sure he can help. Or just tweet him.
  7. They won’t break the story. But if a story ever did break about the “B1G recruiting violations,” I’m sure they’d make a profit by offering the “real” story if you have a premium account.
  8. https://twitter.com/CPyles8/status/1114141248443514881 Was the jab at Hamilton neccessary? What are these things he knows but refuses to mention because "he's not a journalist,"?
  9. Kilamara, Heil, Collica and now Gfeller. There’s always a Cowboy that has an awful tournament.
  10. Thorn over Artalona. That was a crazy last 20 seconds.
  11. Yes, just got some at the store. That they sell it in. Legally. In my state.
  12. Maybe we can get an outsiders perspective on how Flo runs thier production team.
  13. What wrestlers performed way under expectations this weekend that may have an impact on where they're seeded at NCAAs? First person that comes to mind is Mike Carr of Illinois. Ranked #5 at 141 coming into Big 10s and finishes 8th with three loses. Also, Max Thomesen of UNI, #7 at 149 and finishes 7th at Big 12s.
  14. Love Flo. But maybe if they ivested more in production for their sports that attrach a large audience (Track & Wrestling) instead of pumping content for a small audience (FloCheer, FloMarching, FloHoops, FloFootball) they wouldnt have this happen every time they broadcast a large event. If I want football or basketball knowledge, I'm not going to get my updates from FloHoops/Football. I think they had the broadcasting rights to the Paradise Jam basketball tournament in November and the production and commentary was pretty bad. Not sure why they're trying to expand into a market they'll never have a large audience in. It seems like their servers can never handle a large audience. As a media member, Pyles should not be on twitter like he works for IT. That's not his job, he shouldn't feel obligated to address people, so I'm not sure why he thought that would be a good idea. Understand he loves his job and company but that's a battle he cant win.
  15. Or what if he wouldve never transfered? I dont see why it matters, NCAA's hasnt happened yet. He's a returning finalist and is up a weight from last season. Why don't we wait until March before we start playing hypotheticals.
  16. The program was damn near ruined before Smith arrived. They had zero national champions, zero conference titles, a handful of All-Americans and hadnt had a winning season in nearly 10 seasons. Yes going to the SEC may have hurt their chances of creating a solid conference schedule, but it also brought in a lot of revenue for the school and the program (brand new locker rooms, Nike gear, new facility outside the wrestling room.) it's not like Smith and Co. walk around and act like they're the greatest team in the country, I think they just want some respect which y'all seem to still refuse to give them. Yes, they have repeatedly had disappoiting NCAA tournaments, which I would agree is a lack of wrestling in tournaments. However, I think Smith should be praised for how he develops his wrestlers over time. He doesnt always land the top recruits but manages to turn them into AA quality. (Erneste, Mayes, Lavallee, Etc.)
  17. I think Sterk is a little busy at the moment dealing with the NCAA. Brian's a great guy and has done more for that program than anybody else. He's one of the most succesful coaches in male sports at Mizzou. I was just suggesting why Mizzou MAY under perform at NCAA's. Lack of tournaments., I don't know if thats the reason. I'm on a message board to post an opinion, not apply for a coaching position lol.
  18. Probably because they wrestle in a tournament in the first month of the season and then don't wrestle in a tournament again until March.
  19. Seems like Dresser got the negativity out and brought some discipline to the program.
  20. So what do you want them to do about it? lose?
  21. Whats the o/u on a post-match gesture from one of them?
  22. Great performance by Desanto on the victory over Lizak. Not sure what he was saying to the crowd but it appeared he spit on the Minnesota 'M'. Anybody else see this or care to debunk?
