  1. #8 - Roman Bravo-Young Thanks for the re-start @Husker_Du
  2. Please, please, please let them know again how much I hate the new web design. I am not a web designer so I do not have the vocabulary to describe clinically what is so off putting about the design, but I find I no longer want to spend any time on the website. If I decide to look for a specific thing (like an archived match or an article that gets pushed to me via email) I will do that one thing and then leave. I never spend any time browsing the site anymore. It is a shame that the front door to your company instills such a negative visceral reaction in me. And perhaps I am alone in this regard, but I get the sense from the comments of others on this board that is not the case.
  3. My guesses 1. Gable Steveson 2. Spencer Lee 3. Yianni Diakomihalis 4. Nick Lee 5. Aaron Brooks 6. David Carr 7. Roman Bravo-Young 8. Austin O'Connor
  4. So for them to stay in college they would need to have college eligibilty. That would be awful. Imagine if people of different ages were allowed to play against each other? Where does it end?
  5. Intermat has been counting down their top 50 current collegiate wrestlers. They do factor in freestyle results. So far they have revealed #50 through #9 with the promise to reveal one per day. However, it has been six days since the last post. Hey @Husker_Du, what gives? Where are the top 8? For reference their #50 through #9 so far are: #50 - Greg Kerkvliet (Penn State) #49 - Ben Darmstadt (Cornell) #48 - Dakota Geer (Oklahoma State) #47 - Kaleb Young (Iowa) #46 - Rocky Elam (Missouri) #45 - Chad Red Jr. (Nebraska) #44 - Brandon Courtney (Arizona State) #43 - Brock Mauller (Missouri) #42 - Cohlton Schultz (Arizona State) #41 - John Poznanski (Rutgers) #40 - Brayton Lee (Minnesota) #39 - Travis Wittlake (Oklahoma State) #38 - Parker Keckeisen (Northern Iowa) #37 - Tariq Wilson (NC State) #36 - Jacob Warner (Iowa) #35 - Jacori Teemer (Arizona State #34 - Tony Cassioppi (Iowa) #33 - Vito Arujau (Cornell) #32 - Patrick Glory (Princeton) #31 - Max Dean (Penn State) #30 - Keegan O’Toole (Missouri) #29 - Mikey Labriola (Nebraska) #28 - Nino Bonaccorsi (Pittsburgh) #27 - Austin DeSanto (Iowa) #26 - Jake Wentzel (Pittsburgh) #25 - Evan Wick (Cal Poly) #24 - Alex Marinelli (Iowa) #23 - Ryan Deakin (Northwestern) #22 - Sebastian Rivera (Rutgers) #21 - Sammy Sasso (Ohio State) #20 - Trent Hidlay (NC State) #19 - Stevan Micic (Michigan) #18 - Hayden Hidlay (NC State) #17 - Mekhi Lewis (Virginia Tech) #16 - Michael Kemerer (Iowa) #15 - Mason Parris (Michigan) #14 - Shane Griffith (Stanford) #13 - AJ Ferrari (Oklahoma State) #12 - Carter Starocci (Penn State) #11 - Jaydin Eierman (Iowa) #10 - Myles Amine (Michigan) #9 - Daton Fix (Oklahoma State)
  6. I feel the same way about Tom Brady. What is a grown man of 44 doing picking on 22 year old Justin Fields? Sure it's within the rules, but come on, its just not right.
  7. To be fair, that day did come, but Iowa did not.
  8. Why do people always act so surprised when they discover a for profit company acting like a for profit company?
  9. Hence the use of the word other.
  10. The Michigan website still has him at 133. https://mgoblue.com/sports/wrestling/roster/stevan-micic/22814 Where did you see 141?
  11. Nick Lee gets a chance to avenge his only other high school loss at Michigan January 21st.
  12. Maybe Flo can do an interview with Nickal and Askren can sneak Lewis in there to entertain himself.
  13. Cleveland 2018 and Pittsburgh 2019 were smack dab in the middle. Both were similar sized stadiums. I am not sure what the plan was for Minneapolis in a much larger facility.
  14. JB was invited to go on FRL. Askren wanted to bring on Dake too without telling JB. Pyles said no, so Askren went behind his back and did it anyway. Dake then proceeded to be a total tool. It got ugly.
  15. Jordan Burroughs is the finest ambassador for wrestling at the moment. And he is an absolute topnotch interview. He was on FRL this morning and if you are not a Flo subscriber, it is available for free on YouTube. His insights and how he thinks about wrestling and competition are excellent. He also has a very mature attitude toward his competitors. Well worth the listen. And as a bonus he called Ben Askren out for his roll in the Kyle Dake fiasco. Ben apologized, but his explanation was cut short by JB unfortunately. I would have liked to hear more about his thought process.
  16. Did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
  17. He did not say Rivera was world class. He said Lee was world class.
  18. Except the WWE explicitly calls it an NIL deal. The issue with the Opendrse data is not how they classify Steveson's deal. It is that they are only using data for their clients. And it is likely they have very few clients.
  19. WWE put out a press release and WWE personnel did interviews to discuss the deal. Google Gable Steveson NIL and you will get a laundry list of news outlets that covered the story.
  20. Maybe he is going 251. The Flo bros did say he puffs up in the off season.
  21. You are assuming the average earned for all athletes is the same as the average earned by athletes who use Opendorse. Maybe it is, or maybe its more, or maybe its less. No way to know from this. But, I am pretty sure Opendorse does not have all 176,000 DI athletes as clients.
  22. Important caveats in the fine print: "according to anonymized transactions facilitated by Opendorse Deals, ..., and disclosures submitted via Opendorse Monitor". So if you didn't have Opendorse do the deal for you or report your deal to Opendorse, it is not included. I suspect they have very little data which is why they go with percentages of the total rather than raw dollar values when displaying their data. I think there is a real good chance that deals like Steveson's are not included here. Which raises another question. How do you even value Steveson's deal for NIL purposes? There are multiple years and multiple components to it. It seems like when they talk about the deal as being one of the largest in college they are probably summing across years, not averaging, and including any guarantees for the second leg of the deal (which sounds like it is beyond NIL), and possibly even estimates of the max amount the deal could be worth under ideal conditions. Who knows? Not me.
