    I still have no idea what Dennis was doing. No stall calls with 10 seconds left. Run.

    Dondante88 got a reaction from Nutterbutter in Spencer Lee Wins Hodge Trophy   
    Snyder was competing with Zain Retherford and Alex Dieringer for the Hodge in 16-17, not Kollin Moore. I am almost certain that if Zahid hadn't gotten in trouble, he would have been awarded this year's Hodge with the current circumstances.
    You can't compare Snyder's years to 2019-2020, because there was Spencer/Zahid and then a big drop off in terms of eligible Hodge candidates.

    They're not rewarding not showing up.  They're rewarding Lee being a better, more dominant wrestler who equals or beats Moore on all criteria.

    Makes me laugh that some still want to point to missing a match the week immediately prior to the US Senior Nationals where he hoped to qualify for the US Olympic Trials and he missed matches the week after he won the US Senior Nationals where he blew through a bracket with 6 former NCAA Champions, a World Jr. Silver medalist and a host of other All-Americans.  Also, don't forget that Tom Brands announced that he would miss matches on both weekends prior to the season even starting.   I guess those of you that hold that opinion are in the distinct minority, since Intermat stated that his margin of victory in the voting was one of the largest margins ever amongst the voting panel and he also won the popular vote by taking 58% of the total votes among the 8 finalists.   His bonus point percentage is only second to Caels 95% and he had a bonus percentage of 94%.   Rather than try to tear down a young mans accomplishments, I'll just echo what the obvious vast majority are saying today--well done Spencer Lee.

    Criteria for the award includes a wrestler’s record, number of pins, dominance on the mat, past credentials, quality of competition, sportsmanship/citizenship and heart.
    That's directly from the WIN website.
    Record:  Equal, they're both undefeated.
    Number of pins:  Equal, they both have 4, though it should be noted Spencer's pins were over better guys.
    Dominance on the Mat:  Spencer.  Bonus in every match but one.
    Past credentials:  Spencer, two time champion.
    Quality of competition:  Equal at best for Moore.  His best win was over Eric Schultz.  Spencer majored Nick Piccininni.
    Sportsmanship and heart are always a wash.
     
    Anyway, it's an easy call by criteria.

    sorry I didn't know the hodge trophy was awarded based on most matches wrestled without losing?
    moore had 5 matches that were decided by 4 points or less.  spencer's closest match was 7 points.  multiple bonus point victories over the top competition.

    How often does Marinelli get the wrist in that position, bar it up and come out front to get a turn or even a pin? In a vacuum, ok, I can see what you are saying, but Marinelli has consistently used this position to get back points.

    Dondante88 reacted to MSU158 in DeSanto is in trouble!   
    Are we really saying DeSanto is in trouble because he didn't get an escape in a situation that he DIDN'T NEED ONE to win???  I could see it if he actually needed to score from bottom and lost because he didn't.  But, he had a comfortable lead and coasted.  He is NOT the first top guy to do that and won't be the last....................
