  1. "BM's shove was unacceptable even if there was more time on the clock."
  2. Sure, DC's early celebration triggered BM. BM's choice to push DC mid-air was egregious. BM's shove was unacceptable even if there was more time on the clock.
  3. +1 to @KCMO2. Here is the final 5 seconds.

  9. National Champion (10) Greg Bulsak (CLAR) 27-5 Over (5) Jacob Warner (IOWA) 20-4 By Score 6 - 5 Not many outside of his coach and self could have predicted a national championship for Greg Bulsak this year. It is a similar surprise to Quentin Wright from PSU winning as a 9-seed in 2011. Greg DNP twice before winning two state championships for his South Park high school. He followed the same path in college with two DNP before winning his junior year. Greg attributed his 2020 success with a focus on getting a little stronger and a little better each day. Your All Americans Greg Bulsak, Clarion Jacob Warner, Iowa Kollin Moore, Ohio State Ben Darmstadt, Cornell Noah Adams, West Virginia Eric Schultz, Nebraska Tanner Sloan, South Dakota State Patrick Brucki, Princeton
  10. AA 3rd (1) Kollin Moore (OHST) 27-0 Over (4) Ben Darmstadt (COR) 28-6 By Score 7 - 4. Kollin Moore and Ben Darmstadt have faced before. In 2015, Darmstadt was a higher ranked high school wrestler coming into a match. Moore roughed him up and was winning 13-2 before a win by pinfall. In 2018, they met in college. Moore hit an early takedown before Darmstadt picked up an escape. Moore got another takedown for a 4-1 lead in the second, Darmstadt escaped, and Moore converted another takedown for a 6-2 lead. Darmstadt got two points off a reversal and entered the third trailing, 6-4. Darmstadt chose top, and Moore escaped for a 7-4 lead and held on. Moore comes out on top in this NCAA tourney rematch.
  11. AA 5th Noah's Revenge (2) Noah Adams (WVU) 32-0 Over (3) Eric Schultz (NEB) 23-4 By Score 6 - 5 Adams got a small sampling of national tournament wrestling last year, and it left a bitter taste in his mouth. He wasn't two-and-barbeque in Pittsburgh last March, but his stay in the Steel City wasn't an extended one either. He dropped his opening match to NC State's Malik McDonald, won the first wrestle-back against 29th-ranked Brandon Whitman of North Carolina and then lost to Nebraska's Eric Schultz to conclude his abbreviated tournament run. Noah took a week off to clear his mind and then spent the next couple of months literally living in the WVU Wrestling Pavilion. By the end of last summer, he was a different dude, mentally and physically. "Leaving NCAAs last year without being on the podium was disappointing to me, but at the same time I think I learned from it," Noah admitted. "I learned what I needed to do and I've always had that in the back of my head motivating me to keep me going when everything is hard." "I think when you get to that stage and you don't have the success and you see some other guys have success that maybe you think you can beat, that bothers you," Coach Flynn added. Noah Adams' single most important lesson from that experience was realizing that nothing replaces good, old-fashioned hard work because the wrestling gods simply won't allow it. "He's more sound," Flynn admitted. "It sounds funny, but it's just the basics such as keeping his level down. Last year, he was standing straight up and guys were getting in on his legs so we've fixed that. "And he's making a real attempt to hold people down, which before he would just let people go," Flynn added. wvusports.com "I did not reach my goal of becoming a national champion this year. It was good to finish with a win over Eric. I'll be back.", said Noah.
  12. Yes this was worth $20 - no question.

    NOLF V JO

    Nolf and JO decided not to wrestle and you missed nothing. There are no highlights. JO's shoulder pushes did not budge the larger Nolf. JO took little initiative and lost with two passivity points. Nolf was passive in the first period and he was more active in the second period. We watched six minutes of Nolf doing his foot shuffle from neutral and JO keeping his social distance.
  14. It was disappointing that the Nolf and JO match was cancelled. I was looking forward to Nolf big brothering him like Lugo did to Pletcher. I was sure that JO would shoot 2-3 times in the first period and score at least one takedown given his speed. I figured Nolf would get his hands on JO and win by several points before the match ended. Because of how the NCAAs finished this season, I liked the #1 v #1 matchup and I liked the activity between Lugo v Pletcher. That was my favorite match. The youth matches were entertaining. Palumbo looked dominant against a bigger opponent and she had a nice throw out of bounds. Joey Ruzik seemed technical but Aaron Stewart was fast on his feet and muscled past Ruzik when needed.
  15. (1) Kollin Moore (OHST) 27-0 Over (2) Noah Adams (WVU) 32-0 By Score 8 - 3 Don't let the photo fool you. Kollin wrestled angry and showed Noah what the Big 10 is all about.
  16. 141 and 197 were direct outcomes from the the wrestlestat algorithm and I have/am providing color to it. 149 -- I didn't collect the data before the wrestlestat website removed this past season's seniors from the match outcome predictor. All three wrestlers were capable of winning the NCAAs. Moore could had been considered a lock. Pletcher was a toss up. Sasso was right there and yeah I expected top 4 from him. I do not know the algorithm for wrestlestat. I don't know if there is a bias against the real OSU but there seems to be favoritism for Iowa.
  17. Wrestleback Semis Part 1 (4) Ben Darmstadt (COR) 28-6 Over (3) Eric Schultz (NEB) 23-4 By Score 7 - 6 Upset Alert Darmstadt moves on. Win or lose his next match, he has improved on his Freshman 6th place finish.
  18. AA 7th Place (11) Tanner Sloan (SDSU) 21-6 Over (8) Patrick Brucki (PRIN) 21-5 By Score 9 - 6 Upset Alert After Brucki demonstrated a heavy-handed take-down clinic over Sloan at the Midlands, few fans expected the underdog to come through. The major difference in this match was Sloan's improved defense against the ducker under and ankle pick. Sloan attacked and counterattacked successfully to secure two take downs of his own. Pictured above, Sloan scores a 2 point reversal with the classic switch maneuver.
  19. Yes, allow qualified parents the option to send their kids to boarding school, free of charge. Note that the experiment about reducing violent crimes through incentive and other means has claimed success in Richmond. The article has good information... much is extracted below. ------------------------------------------------- Violent victimization and exposure to gun violence has long-term, even fatal, consequences for youth, particularly African American males. Research demonstrates that violence impacts African American youth, particularly boys, at much higher rates than their White and Hispanic counterparts (Children’s Defense Fund, 2013). In California, homicide is the second leading cause of death for all youth ages 10 to 24, with the large majority of homicides committed using firearms. However, for African American youth in the same age range, homicide is the leading cause of death (Violence Policy Center, 2014). Youth who are responsible for gun violence typically also commit other crimes and are commonly victims of violence themselves, encountering long-term developmental consequences (US Department of Health and Human Services, 2001). While these youth are in urgent need of assistance, there is often a lack of appropriate services available for them. It is very difficult to coordinate and implement comprehensive programming and services that effectively address such a wide range of risk factors and needs, while engaging a population that often refuses traditional community-based services due to isolation or lack of trust (Holden, McGregor, Blanks, & Mahaffey, 2012). Through its street outreach strategy, the ONS has been effective in developing a rapport with Richmond community members affected or at risk of being affected by gun violence. From 2010 to 2013, NCAs annually facilitated an average of 2,994 outreach contacts, provided attention-intensive support and mentoring for an average of 150 individuals, and provided an average of 319 referrals to services. Fellows range in age from 14 to 25 years. The large majority (97%) of fellows are African American. About half of fellows (45%) are fathers. About one fifth (21%) were victims of gun violence prior to participating in the Fellowship. While the Fellowship engages youth at high risk for involvement in gun violence, it is important to note that the Fellowship is not a diversion program. This process evaluation highlighted that 94% of Fellowship participants currently remain alive and 79% of participants have not been arrested or charged for gun-related offenses since enrolling in the Fellowship. Moreover, it revealed that across the board, fellows showed improvements in personal outcomes including education, employment, meeting individual goals, improving self-esteem, and living a healthier lifestyle. Overall, Fellowship participants reported that involvement in the Fellowship was a transformative experience that altered their worldviews—and subsequently their lives. “[The Fellowship] changed me,” said one fellow. “[Now] I don’t carry guns, and I don’t hang with guys with guns. I push myself away from that.” Another noted, “I have seen I could do better. I see people trying to help me. I have realized that life is bigger than North Richmond and street life. I don’t have to limit myself.” In addition to low levels of death and injury among fellows, the Fellowship has also helped participants make progress in other key personal areas. For example, since enrolling in the Fellowship, 20% of fellows have received their GED or high school diploma, 10% enrolled in college or vocational training, and 50% obtained employment at some point during the fellowship. Fellows interviewed for this evaluation also reported beneficial experiences they have had through the Fellowship, including setting and meeting goals, developing a sense of responsibility and accountability, and transforming their perspective and worldview, as well as tangible outcomes such as obtaining a driver’s license and becoming employed. These improvements contribute to fellows’ overall ability to transform their lives, improve their self esteem, and continue on a healthy, productive path.
  20. What about a boarding school for children in poverty that provides the education and life structure to succeed? https://www.dallasnews.com/news/education/2018/01/15/could-a-boarding-school-experience-help-kids-living-in-poverty-a-dallas-businessman-says-yes/ It really is about poverty... when you are already a year behind at only four years old, it truly is harder to improve regardless of your intrinsic motivation. Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire (some keys to a successful life), you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy (drive). Intrinsic motivation is great so long as you have the resources (money, mentors, know how to read, etc) and the security (food, shelter, safety) to act on it. It seems crazy but I'm not against paying criminals not to commit crimes if that helps create a better environment for the people that have the drive to better their life.
  21. Disgusting. How can anyone alive possibly think this way. https://deadspin.com/lincoln-made-a-mistake-st-john-fires-fencing-coach-wh-1844017410
