    ShakaAloha reacted to Jon_Kozak in Russian nationals 2021 results   
    These are mine/Flo's international rankings. So Naifonov was ranked #5 in the world and Kurugliev #4 going into Russian Nationals. Kurugliev won the October 2020 version of Rus Nats so that's why he was ahead going into this tournament.

    The processes are more similar than different. Historically (from 2008), most Russian National winners represent Russia at World/Olympics - 78/94. The only time it's different is when there is a returning world/olympic champion at the weight. Very similar to how returning US Champs/medalists sit out to Final X. But Russia only gives preference to champs, we give it to medalists too. What's surprising is sometimes they still make World/Olympic Champs compete at their national tournament.
    The main difference is Russia doesn't explicitly outline their process like the US does and only make exceptions for World/Olympic Champs...sometimes.

    I think Lee beats him if he keeps it on his feet and avoids rolling around with Eierman.  If the match is decided on the mat, then it's tough to funk with Eierman.
    I found it amusing though when Eierman talked about what he's learned in the Iowa room in the B1G post-match interview.  Apparently he's learned to get an early lead and stall his butt off.

    This is a crazy projection.  All of the top-5 seeds sent to consolations??  No way Marinelli loses to Nijenhuis of Purdue.

    ShakaAloha got a reaction from OR in Real Woods   
    Good take...if he beats Woods again and then loses to Demas, he has a couple of winnable matches on the backside and would have to beat Parker or Sherman (probably if seeds hold) to AA.  Winning that first match is critical for him because it presents an easier path to AA.

    ShakaAloha reacted to Housebuye in Double digit AA   
    Totally agree. 
    I think Jacori Teemer is similar. He doesn't have the college wins Kennedy does, but he can beat anyone on the right day. He is like a lesser version of Eierman. 
    Nelson Brands, but for different reasons. He is a biter.

    Stephen Abas won 3 of his 4 titles during Cael's run of 4.  I think Abas beat Jeremy Hunter, Luke Eustice, and Jody Strittmatter.  Hunter won the other year during Cael's run of 4.  
    Cael is better than Abas, and I think the 4 guys he beat were better than the 3 guys Abas beat.
    With that being said, all the guys we are talking about are beasts!

    He’s 45-0 against everyone not named Buchanan over the last 2 years , so naturally ncaa sets him up with Buchanan again

    I’m not a penn state fan lol I’ve been beating that drum on here for years...I don’t like Iowa so when penn state is who can beat them I root for them...I root for NJ guys over everyone ( penn state wrestlers included) and Wentzel already announced he’ll be back next year for year 7 and he literally lost to Bullard a week before he beat Mehki 
     
    funny you think that’s marinelli toughest match up because I think out of the top 10 seeds he d easily beat Wentzel...Marinelli could wrestle Wentzel for 45 minutes straight At Pitt with Keith Gavin reffing  and I don’t think Wentzel would score a point and one thing about the Bull is he always gets atleast 1 takedown and that would be enough.

    I’m on record saying 4 years.  4 freaking years.  That is your window.  Use it wisely. And then done.  Grow up and move on.  No redshirt.  No medical waiver.  4 years.  
     
    can there be exceptions for special situations.  I’m sure there can be.  But for the vast majority, play the sport.  Get a degree and become a fully contributing member of society.  If grad school is your thing, good!  Focus on it!  If want to keep wrestling, good!  Senior Circuit!!

    Wow.  Picture being a senior in HS, and then then having the chance to stick around, 1, 2, 3 more years and compete in HS wrestling.  Wouldn’t that be so cool!  Oh man.  How great would that be!  Beating up on guys you are 5, 6, 7 years older than.  Guys who have had far less experience too!!  Oh man.  That would be awesome.  I’d feel so much better about myself.  So much more superior.  Oh man. Oh man!  So cool!!

    Lee should come back. He has a real shot at being a 4x champ and never red shirted. Eirmann and kemmerer need to move on from college. 7 years is insane, even by van wilder standards.

    One minute Marinelli is a world beater and a lock for the finals and the next Iowa fans are glad he doesn’t have to face Wentzel? Lmao Wentzel literally got majored by Joe Lee last year
     
    marnielli and Lewis both don’t look anything like their 2019 versions, Marinelli does the same 4 moves he’s been doing since his frosh year and Lewis looks bored and seems to have regressed a little too ( but that could be because of injury) 
    when Friday night rolls around we might have a Griffith / Hartman semi

    Although I disagree with basically everything you just typed your last sentence is singularly ridiculous.  Caffey and Eierman are probably the closest to Askren's scrambling ability we have seen in quite some time and Caffey is doing his based nearly SOLEY on flexibility and instict, while Eierman does it almost soley on drilled technique.
    With that said, I like Ferrari and think he can definitely win, but his style isn't exactly the best fit to take down Warner.  Warner STUFFS double legs.  In fact, he WANTS you to shoot that on him.  Nearly all of his neutral offense is predicated on countering that type of attack.  To beat Warner, you need to create angles and use sweeping attacks, shucks and throw/pass bys.
