  1. I’ve had some time to settle down afterI’ve had some time to settle down after my surgery, and I’ve finally tap K Kyle Dake says he was injured at the trials, or at least that an old injury was aggravated. He is making no excuse. But this is from his blog: "I’ve had some time to settle down after my surgery, and I’ve finally tapered completely off the pain medication, which is great because I felt terrible while on the medication. A couple weeks before trials I hurt my shoulder again, at the time I didn’t think anything off it, I just thought I tweaked the same shoulder I injured in January of 2015. So I took a couple days off the mat to let it calm down, and continued to prepare for trials. After trials my shoulder was bothering me much worse than before, so my team and I decided to get another MRI and speak with the doctors. The MRI showed a worsening of my already torn labrum and bicep tendon, with an added tear of my rotator cuff. The last time I spoke with the doctor, in 2015, my rotator cuff was intact and we decided it would be best to rehab and strengthen as much as possible. Luckily for me I had no dislocation of the shoulder, and could repair the damage through arthroscopic surgery. So a couple weeks ago I flew down to South Carolina to repair my shoulder. The doctor said it was worse than he originally thought, but was able to repair everything, and I’ll be better than before. Unfortunately I’ll be off the mat for four months, but I’m glad to be healing and moving in the right direction.

  2. Dake is an amazing wrestler. 4 NCAA titles proves that. He is excellent defensively, he is excellent with counters, and 99% of the time if he tries to outgun you he will. He's already beaten world medalists. And on top of all that, right now I think he's better than the average world team member. If Burroughs wrestles through the 2020 Olympics I think Dake is his only guaranteed threat. (We'll have to see how Dieringer and iMart develop.) So if Dake stays at 74kg , it makes all the sense in the world. But imagine if Dake went to 70kg. He could challenge for medals right away. (I believe there will be a 70kg world championship next year even though its not an Olympic weight.) He could also start building a name for himself, and he could get exposure to the high-pressure environment at worlds as he aims to make the 2020 Olympics. I think it makes all the sense in the universe.
  3. Voting for Logan Stieber to win the Hodge over Kyle Dake in 2013? I never understood this decision. I'm sure many would like to hear your reasoning. Everyone I spoke to about the Hodge that year agreed that Dake should have received the award. Is anyone shocked that SHP didn't vote for Dake in 2013?

  5. 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 I’m back on the mats. I’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.I’m happy to say that I’m back on the mats. I’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.
  6. looks like dake broke away from the notoriously shady cage fighter group http://www.kyledake.com/brute.html most of you know he signed a deal a few years ago with cf for them to produce a shoe and they said dake would be making six figures but idk if the shoe was ever produced http://www.intermatwrestle.com/articles/11736 anyone know anything about this
  7. It seems to me that many people believe that it's extremely easy to lead a highly ranked HS wrestler to an ncaa title. So easy, that they don't feel a coach really deserves credit for the kids success. For example, I've talked to a few that believed that Cael's coaching abilities should not be judged on what he does with guys like Ruth and Taylor, rather he should be judged on what he does with guys like Conaway, Vollrath, and English. I disagree with this. Imo, the job that Cael did with Ruth and Taylor is superior to the job he did with English. Ruth's 3 ncaa titles, and Taylor's 2 ncaa titles trump English's one low AA finish. I read a post from another thread earlier that made me think of starting this thread, here's the relevant portion: "If I can send kids like Steve Bosak to your school, who never won a state title, and you as a coach have a program to foster the kid's ability to 3 time AA and National Champ then you are a great coach". I believe that coaching Kyle Dake to 4 ncaa titles is Koll's best work. That's superior to taking Bosak to 3 AA's and an ncaa title to me. I guess my major point is that I think coaches should get more credit for taking their "studs" to the promised land than they currently get. I don't believe that it's a given that guys like Dake, Ruth, and Taylor would have been as successful anywhere they went. The belief that these kids would have won just as much anywhere else is not uncommon. Last season, I argued that Cael's job with Ruth and Taylor was superior to what Flynn did with Port and Schopp. (the context was ncaa coach of the year) I was called crazy for it, but I never got a clear answer as to why. I don't know why I should automatically believe that taking a good HS wrestler to 5th place is better than taking a great HS wrestler to the ncaa title. I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts. Should we give coaches more credit for taking the elite HS wrestlers to ncaa success?
