  1. Flowrestling has been a sketchy organization from its inception with their rampant overcharging of its customers. I always attributed it to their founder but it seems they have reared their ugly heads yet again.
  2. Why would Nick Lee be favored over McKenna? McKenna just beat Yianni a few months ago while Nick Lee just lost his last match in college. He's also 1-2 against McKenna.
  3. Well he's as good as any with his years of connections.
  4. An insider on another board has said tOSU is in the mix.
  5. Well his first comment is absolutely correct unfortunately. The second comment was probably not the smartest comment to make considering you are part of the sport but I have to admit I too find Greco and Women's wrestling relatively uninteresting. FWIW I watch plenty of other women's sports including Tennis, Track, USWNT etc.
  6. Stanford doesn't want wrestling to be saved and its not about money despite what they say.
  7. Real Woods in transfer portal. Good for him and screw Stanford.
  8. I tend to agree that a four year College education is overrated and unnecessary for many and also massively overpriced. And I am someone that has gone through the highest levels of education and was in some sort of higher education until I was 32 without taking any breaks. I feel like I could have gotten to that same point in 4-5 years earlier by cutting out a ton of fluff and waste that is not remotely pertinent to my current profession. I've thought for a long time based on my own experience that there needs to be a massive overhaul in this country in regards to higher education, it's perceived value vs actual value and the massive out of control costs of it. It honestly disgusts me that these Universities get away with charging almost $100K a year in tuition, have Billions of dollars in endowments and yet cut sports like wrestling all in the name of "saving money". Give me an effing break. Shame...
  9. Yep, Apple and oranges. That tournament practiced ZERO social distancing in any form or kind. They did zero testing. The stands were packed with no one wearing masks and the players were partying at night clubs afterwards not to mention playing soccer and basketball together. It's a terrible representation of how sports can and should be played during the pandemic. Several tennis tournaments have taken place recently with excellent safety protocols. I remember watching that tennis tournament on TV and thinking oh ok this tournament must have taken case before the pandemic. I was utterly shocked when I found out it wasn't.
  10. At his current rate of medal upgrades Tervel will have a gold medal by 2033.
  11. Definitely Pico, he was a criteria pt away from making the 2016 Olympics at age 19 and he will be only 24 in 2021. Pico is also 6-0 in his career versus Zain Retherford which is an incredible record against a very very good wrestler.
  12. .....its pretty clear you have something against Logan Stieber..have a nice day and enjoy your life. :)
  13. I wouldn't say dominated but Logan was up 8-4 very late in the match and "gave up" a TD so as to guarantee himself the win by not giving up a 4 and lose on criteria, which is the right thing to do. It wasn't that close of a match in reality.
  14. Well they are already playing AAU Basketball games in Indiana so I don't see why not.
  15. I wouldn't put an Olympic Bronze or Silver above a World Championship. Difference of opinion. I'm also taking into account NCAA Championships but not as highly as World results. Snyder and Burroughs are the clear #1 and 2. #3 for me is Dake and #4 is Cox although they could be flip flopped. By the criteria I listed above I would put Stieber as #5 or #6 with Varner. I have Stieber over Taylor because both have 1 WC and Stieber has 4 NCAA titles vs 2 although I get your point about a WC in an Olympic year. Now Molinaro over Stieber because of 1 match and an Olympic 5th? Come on man... And Stieber on the same tier as Green and Gwiz?? That's just ridiculous... It feels like you are really reaching to keep him off your top 10 list for whatever reason. I'm surprised you didn't throw in some female wrestlers or Paralympic wrestlers to keep him off your top 15 list.
  16. Stieber beat Zain 8-6 in 2016 Olympic trials (and it wasn't really that close as Stieber gave up a late TD to preserve the win). That makes his career record 3-1 against Zain. (Scores were 8-6, 7-3, 7-3 and 2-4 SV). Have they wrestled any other time since college? Stieber is a former World Champion, World Cup champion and has beaten multiple past World Champions. Zain is a former Cadet World Champion. Had Stieber not lost to Molinaro by criteria at the 2016 Olympic Trials there's a decent chance he would have won Gold as he had beaten Gold Medalist Ramonov 9 month earlier. Also as far as common freestyle opponents Stieber easily beat Pico 13-4 while Pico beat Zain easily 8-5 in 2016 (4-1 takedowns). The Stieber match is the only time I've ever seen Pico get dominated in a match. (Pico is actually 6-0 in his career vs Zain and 8-5 was the closest match. Good thing for Zain that Pico didn't go to college or he might not have any NCAA individual championships) Zain is a beast but I think ppl are forgetting how good Logan was. He is easily one of the top 5-10 USA wrestlers of the last decade.
  17. How much is it to watch? nm $19.99
  18. It's cuz they have zero scholarship recruiting commitments for 2020 that I know of. I don't believe Bryce Hepner will receive any or if he does it will be a small amount. In contrast they have a couple highly ranked commitments from Paddy Gallagher in the class 2021 and Seth Shumate for 2022
  19. Full contact non-revenue sports will get hurt no question. Big time sports like football and basketball will continue IMO as schools will pony up for their cash cows and order mass testing though....sad but true.
  20. Your link is past when he talks about Ech and the team. Starts around 8:30 and Ech more specifically around 11:00 Interesting that Ohio State Athletics (gymnastics and fencing) has 2 coaches that are Cuban Olympians that may have helped land Ech. Ryan also mentioned he was beating Gillman as a HS wrestler at 15??
  21. Disagree.. Lee won on his home court and Pletcher won on a neutral field and won the most recent match. Pletcher is better...
  22. Good to see these wrestlers get the recognition they deserve. Did they go straight by NCAA tourney seeding s to decide who got AA?
