    ShakaAloha reacted to NJDan in Kyle Dake - Overrated?   
    There may be nothing "inherently special," but there is something special. The fact that he started college at 141 (as a true freshman) and wound up at 165 shows that when he got to Cornell he was still a kid, still growing. When you look at him next to Montell Marion, it was a boy beating a man. Kyle Dake is the anti-Kemerer. In other words, it is not more impressive to win at 165 compared to 141, but it's very impressive to win at one having been at the other.

    I think Gable wins the Olympic trials pretty comfortably. He obviously didn't leave the weight room during the whole quarantine and keeps getting better. He's clearly way ahead of Parris and I think Gwiz may have lost a step from his peak.

    Sorry, I mis-read.  I thought Blue Dragons was talking about CA Wrestler's son.

    I’m a fan. I think he underperformed at conferences. I expect he will AA, but it could take a few years. 
    A borderline top 100 true freshman even making NCAAs is pretty crazy. Happy for him.

    PD3?  LOL
    He seems to be in a good situation.  He'll finish wrestling as a 2Xer with 6 or 8AAs.  Who else can say that?

    ASU is too high.  Would need Valencia and Schultz to both get top-3 for them to finish in 5th.  Mizzou also too high.  They would need Mauller in the finals, O'Toole top 3, and a couple other guys to get them big points if they were to finish #4.  
    VT, Michigan, and Nebraska are too low.  VT has Mekhi and good guys at 125, 149, and 197.  Michigan has Amine and Parris who will score big points and put them higher than 8.  Nebraska is solid all around, as they showed at Big 10's this past weekend.

    As I recall, Mark Hall was held back/repeated 7th grade in middle school. He then proceeded to not take a red shirt and graduated in 4 years from Penn State. Kemmerer is going to be a 7th year senior. It's ridiculous that he is going to be competing against 18 year olds. I said the same thing about hall from ASU and brown to a lesser extent, who I still give a massive pass compared to the grandfather as his reasons were based on religion, not an undying urge to stay in college for nearly a decade.

    Right? Who would want to spend that many years in college!  It is getting ridiculous that you have these 25 year old guys who have been in a college room for 7 years beating up on a bunch of 17 and 18 year olds.

    ShakaAloha reacted to Antitroll2828 in Brackets   
    He’s also been teched by number 7
    he lost to the ghost of shakur Rasheed last year, a guy who couldn’t beat anyone
    he lost to Thomas lane at ncaas 2 years ago lol
    he lost his only tough match this year
    he also lost to Aiello last year whose ranked like 10th now
    And he’s never faced Ferrari, Beard, Bonocorrsi or Adams , all of whom I’d favor over him 
    hes 7-6 in his career against other AAs ( 2-0 over Miklus, 1-1 against Hokit, 1-1 against Shakur, 1-2 against Brucki, 1-0 against Geer and 1-0 against Ben Honis) 
    his best win is a 5-4 match against Brucki at Carver, where Iowa stomped Princeton, then lost later that season 10-5 in a neutral location ...

    I wouldn't care if your son won an NCAA title for the college I graduated from. He's a trashy, classless person who obviously takes after his father. Fortunately he's not good enough to make a world or Olympic team for this country (try North Korea?) unless it's by default. Also with all the dodging of criminal complaints and arrest warrants, not to mention the hours spent posting on social media, where does he find the time to train? 
    USA wrestling will benefit greatly once this cancerous mass of a person is disassociated from us. The sooner the better. It sounds like he's going to be done with wrestling after he loses at the Olympic trials so that can't come soon enough.
