  1. Thanks! Is it any easier to do than a lace?
  2. As hopefully almost all of my posts will show, I don't know a ton about the sport. I really started to get into it in November and then COVID-19 has made a mess of things ever since, so I've lost a lot of that momentum I had. I do try and watch things as they pop-up. I happen to follow this person on YouTube who posts a lot of wrestling events in Asia. Feel free to watch this match, but I'm most curious as to what the technique is @ 6:30. I've seen leg laces before where they roll the guy, but this just seemed different. Maybe it wasn't and was just an awkward way each wrestler reacted to it?
  3. No. I didn't start following until the 2019/20 so while there are probably some top wrestlers I am familiar with, there are probably way more I am not.
  4. I don't know if any of my inquiries below have easily found results, but these popped into my head: Worst seeded wrestlers to win championships or All American? If different, worst W-L records for wrestlers that won/placed? Best seeded wrestlers to go 0-2....or great W-L records with nothing to show for it? Feel free to add any other obscure stats or questions that others may know the answers to.
  5. You have been handed the keys to broadcast collegiate wrestling to the world. Here are your stipulations: 1 match for each weight class Has to be a collegiate wrestler that you believe will wrestle in the next NCAA season. It can be anyone. You can pick who you feel the best two wrestlers are or you can pick who you believe the most entertaining wrestlers would be. Whatever you think that would best showcase the sport throughout the world.
  6. I didn't realize you had posted this or were a member. I had posted both of your videos, which were awesome. Keep up the great work.
  7. I initially asked this on the collegiate board and had every intention of asking it here, but I just didn't get around to it. I imagine there are a lot of matches that never took place for one reason or another throughout the international career of wrestlers. Olympics have been boycotted and I imagine just the way international competition is handled, there are scenarios where two top wrestlers in the same weight class at the same time just never happened. What are some of the bigger ones? What are some of the matches that should have happened, but we were deprived of seeing? It seems like international competitions are based around one representative per country, so what about just two wrestlers that you know would have made a fun match regardless of whether they were the top wrestler for their country? Maybe some amazing potential match between the second best American and the third best Russian?
  8. Just saw this video -- haven't watched it all, but had to share!
  9. I shared this on the International side and it is freestyle focused, but if you don't regularly go to that side, you might still find this as interesting as I did!
  10. Some of you may now subscribe, but I noticed the guy who did the arm drag breakdown, has a new video out...
  11. Maybe this doesn't happen with the various tournaments and duals throughout a collegiate wrestling season, but have there been marquee matchups that just never happened? Maybe the two seemed destined to meet up in the championship, but things fell differently?
  12. I posted this on the International as it was dealing with Rei Higuchi, but I thought people who only look at the Collegiate side would be interested (and maybe there will be some related to that style as well?) Does include an appearance from John Smith.
  13. I actually saw this on Reddit and thought people would be interested!
  14. This is where my lack of extensive wrestling knowledge, but not so with football can cloud the way I view things. Football coaches typically run a specific style/strategy and often try and get players that best fit that or try an coach up those that have the talent if lacking. So a pass-first coach is going to fill his team a particular way vs a run-first coach, etc. etc. Does that hold true for wrestling at all? Is there a coach that is a master of winning on points, so they are looking for guess that can wrestle for days and hard to keep down? Is there one that focuses on control, so they recruit someone that at best gets a pin and at worst gets a takedown + riding time + escape to secure their victories? Or is it really a manner of getting the best wrestler you can get and there really isn't a style? I can seem to recall listening to commentators -- "like all <fill school name here> wrestlers, these guys are good at <select some area of strength>" So I thought maybe some were better at certain styles or techniques. Hopefully that made some sense.
  15. Me too! I have watched a ton of wrestling in Russia, Kazakhstan, France to say nothing of some of the NCAA/High School streams.
