  1. it's really a tough question to answer. ed ruth,  Damian Caldwell,  Gregor Gillespie, lance palmer are all great examples but it just depends. look at cary kolat and Steve mocco. kolat fought once and lost mocco fought and did well but hasnt fought for a while. so it just depends. no doubt that they have the best base to do well. ben askren is a high level bjj guy too. so with his basic striking makes him a hard opponent to deal with


  2. heard about the freshman champ topic so I did my research. here is what I found. Give credit to Jim Kalin and Mark Palmer for already covering this topic. the last article was written in 2016.

    From 1928- 2016 - there have been 15 true freshman to win the title. out of all of them pat Malkovich from Michigan state was the youngest at 17 years old. another interesting note- 1947 was the first year that it happened and there were 4 freshman who did it. Jim kalin wrote the article "THE 15" IN AMATEUR WRESTLING NEWS that mark referenced to.

    To add that total- 2018 spencer lee is number 16. anyway. here are the names of the 16 freshman to win a title.

  3. I dont think brands will be in the hot seat. l thought he did a great job (all the coaches) at the NCAAs getting their wrestlers ready. young was a surprisingly high finish, murin wrestled well and was a match short of AA, lugo wrestled well and so did warner at the end. Even had Stoll scoring points and strategizing to move into the tournament.  of course lee, desanto and marinelli wrestled well. these next few years will be exciting for Hawkeye fans. question will be- will lee take a redshirt year? if they want to win a title they need him there.  but it sounds like he wont sinve gilman is there.

  5. First off- I picked lee to win but after seeing what Mueller did to Rivera I was really nervous. 

    Just curious what everyone thought about choosing down at the start of the second. I immediately held my breathe. it worked out but did anyone else feel that it could've been a crucial mistake? 

    my fear was, mueller erasing riding time if he kept lee down. then choosing neutral,  possibly scoring the takedown early then riding ot out for the win. 


  6. nice input. maybe lee saw something while scouting but I was nervous. especially when mueller locked up the cradle. I was screaming nooo. but yeah. as a coach if I saw lee ride him and almost turn him at the end. I wouldve picked top and continue the pressure. if lee scores it puts sooo mich pressure on mueller to score more than riding point.
