  1. I love Cael Sanderson and what he's accomplished at PSU, but the PSU fans appear to be doing their level best to be heels. This post is bush league and I'm not even a Cornell fan.
  2. "Claims" being the key word. The Iranian wrestler didn't exactly paint himself in glory at the end of the match.
  3. Poulin did nothing wrong here. This wasn't the beginning of the match.
  4. I don't like poor sportsmanship more than most, but it doesn't exist in this video. This was absolutely distorted and bog-standard anti-Americanism given to us by the British state broadcaster -which is always claiming to be unbiased.
  5. Anybody who wants to see a fair outcome wants it overruled - which is pretty much anyone who isn't a PSU homer.
  6. You hope they rule against it because you're a PSU fan.
  7. Certainly it would be much easier for Yianni to qualify, train and minimalize the chance of being injured by being a representative for Greece. The only thing that I could see stopping him is that he was part of several US junior teams wrestling internationally, so he would probably be loyal to USA wrestling. Given that he was completely jobbed by USA Wrestling, you'd have to wonder where his head is now. He certainly can't allow it to interfere with his Olympic hopes.
  8. You're correct in that the USA certainly won't be getting a medal at 65.
  9. Would love to see him go down and take out Downey.
  10. Yianni is probably eligible to wrestle for the Greek national team.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. He sounds good and he'll be back in the cage. Nickal will also be a monster.
  15. Yianni should make the process easy for everyone and wrestle for the Greek national team.
  16. Nobody in wrestling should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.
  17. Yianni should wrestle for Greece. Problem solved.
  18. I wonder how many calls to Hilton have been made by the Greek national team coach.
