  1. The way they phrase their criteria in the Rokfin article is they "used a combination of collegiate achievements, with 2021 accomplishments carrying more weight than past years, along with win-loss records and notable wins. While we are counting down the top-50 wrestlers based primarily on collegiate accomplishments, it is impossible to totally ignore achievements in the international settings, so they did factor in slightly, too." The part about 2021 accomplishments carrying more weight to me suggests Spencer Lee and Gable Steveson will be above Yianni Diakomihalis. And the part about international achievements being a slight factor suggests to me that Gable Steveson will be above Spencer Lee. So putting it together I think we get Steveson, Lee, Diakomihalis as 1, 2, 3.
  2. So the only suspense left is who gets #3 and who gets #4 between yianni Diakomihalis and Nick Lee, and who gets #1 and who gets #2 between Gable Steveson and Spencer Lee. My guess is unchanged: #1 - Steveson #2 - S Lee #3 Diakomihalis #4 N Lee
  3. My favorite kind of argument. First, make up some silly numbers. 1-6? They are 1-1 against each other in college and the two matches were 3 years apart. Perhaps pre-puberty Yianni was 5-0 against Lee. Don't know. Also don't care. Next, claim Yianni was a little sad that day he lost. Oh, he was sad? Well then never mind. That one doesn't count. But you still get your participation trophy. Of course, none of this matters in either direction. It's Rivera's weight to lose, just ask the Flo guys. They are all always Rivera's weight to lose.
  4. The numbers are still hilarious on HWIN. The last official price is 13.75 giving it an undiluted market value of $107mm, but for the month of October the average daily volume was a whopping 2.4 shares per day. They really just exist as a shell intended to merge with a company seeking a US exchange listing. They need to deli to avoid the deadline for mergers imposed on SPACs. So they run the deli at a lose and keep plugging along.
  5. But I have been told that everyone who lost to Nick Lee wasn't trying.
  6. Nick Lee only cares about respect that is earned on the mat. He will be chopping wood and carrying water in the meantime.
  7. Interesting. I came to the opposite conclusion. Given that they tied for the Hodge last year I read that sentence as hinting that they would break the tie with Gable's Olympic gold.
  8. In the accompanying article on Rokfin Corby says: "While we are counting down the top-50 wrestlers based primarily on collegiate accomplishments, it is impossible to totally ignore achievements in the international settings, so they did factor in slightly, too."
  9. Just #8 so far (RBY). Supposed to be 1 per day from here on.
  10. My corollary rule is "It is only your inconsistencies that bother me".
  11. It's always OK to ask. You will get a much more positive response today than when Willie asked.
  12. #8 - Roman Bravo-Young Thanks for the re-start @Husker_Du
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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)
  17. 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.
  18. To be fair, that day did come, but Iowa did not.
  19. Why do people always act so surprised when they discover a for profit company acting like a for profit company?
