  1. Damn. Dake looked gassed out of his mind in the finals.
  2. sake of discussion...come on now
  3. I was going to make this exact same comparison. Like many things in life, strength cannot be determined by the eyeball test. show muscles<functional strength
  4. I can see the reasoning for this; the bottom ten of the top 25 are fairly interchangeable. I don't mean this as a negative but rather as an indicator of parity amongst that particular sect of wrestlers. However, I by no means do I agree with the OP re: to many AAs.
  5. do we know what exactly was the injury?
  6. college wrestle offs are more for the fans then to determine the starting line up. as others have said, coaches know who is the better wrestler from watching them day in and day out in the room. Hoffman could have lost for any number of reasons that do not include being the less skilled wrestler.
  7. At the end of one of Hoselton's matches, his dad tells the individual during commentary that he has torn ligaments in his thumb and hasn't been able to practice for three weeks. He is also going into his Jr year so he has time to get his body ready for the next level.
  8. I havnt seen this match. i'll have to look it up.
  9. never once did I assume Brock did not have help along the way. I only wanted to point out that his coach got out in front of the speculation back in the late nineties.
  10. you are abslutly correct about styles making matches. I have admittedly never see any of kerk's matches outside of his one with gable
  11. I've thought a lot about this match and I keep wondering if Gable did just enough to win in an effort to help his friend look a bit better. I'm not saying Kerk is a slouch by any means, only that I wouldn't be surprised if Gable and Kerk worked together in that match. Maybe I'm wrong and Gable typically does just enough to win and then cruises the rest of the match.
  12. When I was in 8th grade my wrestling coach gave a copy of this article to everyone on the team. I find it interesting that JRob had Brock preemptedly tested for PEDS at the time. https://www.si.com/vault/2000/03/06/275618/very-big-man-on-campus-minnesota-heavyweight-brock-lesnar-makes-rivals-look-lilliputian
  13. Seems like a waste for him not to take a red shirt. An additional year in the room, time in the weight program, and extra time for his knee to heal up cold only benefit the team long term. its not like tosu is going to contend for a title this year.
