  1. 1. Dake 2. Gable 3. DT 4. Snyder 5. JB If Cox wrestled may be 2.5. Not sure he beats the Snyder I saw today though. Snyder looked better than I thought he would.
  2. I agree that people are a lot better at cutting weight than others. I'm amazed at the ones that cut then hydrate/eat and look so much bigger than their opponents. Then others who just shrink. Incidentally, Zain looked to me like a guy who shrank and just wasn't as effective with his noticeable muscle loss. In regard to JO, he is so talented, but wonder about his discipline in training diet, etc. This, and his mentality in wrestling. If he was offensive consistently, he would be so much more effective. Anyway, he looks dialed in now.
  3. It's usually money and other reasons. Perhaps staleness, or best interest, or etc. Fun narrative though.
  4. Very well funded but doing a great job.
  5. JB a tremendous representative for USA wrestling. Dake is better at this point, but I think JB has regressed with Dake getting better. Probably just behind Smith on International ladder for USA wrestlers.
  6. I thought that he tapped hands, but took it that he wasn't happy with his performance. He looked disengaged, but I think he knew that being aggressive wouldn't work. I think DT is a bad matchup for him. Zahid a bad matchup for DT, so this would have been more interesting IMO.
  7. Very talented, but his lack of discipline at times is worrisome.
  8. Always surprised by the DT hate. Usually conducts himself very well, but apparently rubs people the wrong way. I guess "good on another team" thing, but still a little weird.
  9. Gilman vs Vito: Gilman very fundamental and strong. Does Vito have the HP at this weight to be serious at the world level? May want to consider weight up--Yianni's weight. JO vs McKenna: JO is very talented, but very inconsistent. Be focused and offensive. Dake vs JB: JB has bad body language going into the 2nd match. Dake evolved to be better. Not sure JB will beat Nolf next year. A better matchup for Nolf since he won't get horsed. JB a class act whose legacy is already defined. Dake needed this for his legacy, JB didn't. Dake was actually humble-a good look. Taylor vs Nickal: Nickal is not great getting to legs, and DT won't fall for the rest. Amazed at the hate for DT as he has been generally classy throughout his career. Snyder vs Moore: very surprised that Snyder handled him so easily. Too much respect for past beatings? Gable: the man. I thought he was the best college wrestler, and he toys with world bronze medalist. He shouldn't wrestle college--just way too good.
  10. We all knew. Welcome to the party!
  11. Want Joey because I think he will represent best. Very solid, but needs to push the pace. Hell, I have Joey.
  12. Slight edge to Gilman, as strength and positioning will make a difference. Love Vito though. His speed could win it, but still take Gilman.
  13. Probably Snyder wins, but wouldn't be surprised if Moore wins. Thought Cox would win it all (USA), but Snyder probably squeaks through. Sadulaev wins anyway (it all). He would get at least one TD, didn't see Cox matching.
  14. Dake is much older, but he always had Jordan. Yianni a little more precocious, but lacks Dake's physical prowess, IMO. Yianni has flexibility, but not HP. Very good, but not Dake, IMO. Hopefully I am wrong.
  15. Who actually thinks he won't represent? If focused, he can win Gold. He's playing at this point.
  16. I think DT has lost a bit of flexibility and speed with lifting , but probably wins Bo. I think too tight for Bo, but I also thought Zahid would win Bo. Thoughts?
