    What we learned at Dogu

    You're correct in that the USA certainly won't be getting a medal at 65.

    Bo Nickal

    Would love to see him go down and take out Downey.
  3. I really hope that Taylor isn't out for too long.

    For all the Zain/PSU Homers

    Yianni is probably eligible to wrestle for the Greek national team.
  5. Whoa-ho. Anyone still think our best guy is going?

    Askren KOed in 5 seconds

    Sorry. He lost consciousness.

    Askren KOed in 5 seconds

    Personally I think that Askren is at a high level. It looked like Lawler tapped to me. This last fight looked like long odds to land that knee, but it would have knocked anyone out. If Ben is more cautious, he avoids the KO and gets a boring win. But he still wins.

    My gut says Nickal will be at the top if he makes the choice to pursue it. If Askren has done well, you've got to take him out of the list of guys who didn't make the transition. Pico can still do well. Why look at the guys who didn't make it as opposed to those who did?

    Askren KOed in 5 seconds

    I'm not a big UFC proponent. I'll follow it to see how wrestlers do. He is stepping up in class, but I believe that if he gets close enough to grapple, he'll crush most opposition. Askren doesn't like to lose. He admits it. He plays the heel well. But he's still not unlikeable. And he did a great interview. I suspect that he will fight again and I agree that he has only a few left in him after a big concussion and at his age. The guy is a champion. He likes to compete. But now he is also a husband - and his wife might provide the most formidable opposition that he's seen yet.

    He sounds good and he'll be back in the cage. Nickal will also be a monster.

    Yasar Dogu

    Yianni should make the process easy for everyone and wrestle for the Greek national team.

    Wrestling and IQ

    Nobody in wrestling should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.
