It's tough to pick against B. Saitiev. We all know he has nine world-level golds. But as JB approaches gold number five (probably six if he hadn't hurt his knee), it's starting to seem like JB is not far from where Saitiev was. On top of that, it seems like JB would be a bad stylistic matchup for Saitiev. We saw that Saitiev could be stopped with that Slay double. Would he be able to solve that Burroughs double?
"Folkstyle wrestling needs a push-out rule. Out of bounds refers to being outside the wrestling boundaries of the mat or â€œthe circle.â€ Due to the chaotic nature of wrestling, it is normal for wrestlers to go out of bounds frequently during a match. In some cases, wrestlers may intentionally go out when it is to their advantage. Hmmm. In other words, use the line as a safety net to prevent being scored upon. I saw too many guys diving for the line when an opponent was in on their legs. NCAA wrestling needs to create a push-out rule, and force wrestlers to defend in-bounds or give up a point." -JB
Being a New Yorker and a Cornell fan, Kyle Dake is one of my favorite athletes. But I also love Jordan Burroughs. But only one of them can rep the USA at 163. On his blog, Dake says "I'm happy to say that Iâ€™m back on the mats. Iâ€™ve been lifting like a madman the past few months and have gotten much stronger both in the weight room and on the wrestling mat.Iâ€™m happy to say that Iâ€™m back on the mats. Iâ€™ve been lifting like a madman the past few months and have gotten much stronger both in the weight room and on the wrestling mat." He also says he practices with Gabe Dean. Does this suggest he can go 185. He has proven himself able to rise and thrive. Or maybe JB can go 185? Hard to believe that he is not as strong as even the super-strong Ed Ruth, and twice as fast. For the good of the nation, is there a way we can convince one of them to move up.
