If you're familiar with my past posts, you know that I believe that Martinez made Nolf look better than he actually was last year, and if he wrestled up to his potential, would have beaten Nolf comfortably. I like Nolf, but outside of his pace, I haven't seen anything close to great wrestling from him so far. I wasn't surprised at all to see him barely edge past Massa, and lose to a high school wrestler, Mark Hall, this off season. Nolf may end up being a great wrestler, but as of right now, I think many are overestimating his wrestling prowess because they are suffering from the "David Taylor syndrome". The condition in which one regularly places wrestlers on a higher pedestal than other more accomplished wrestlers due to wide margin of victories over lower tier competition. Of course this condition was widespread on this board when Kyle Dake was outperforming Taylor on the mat, but was still somehow behind him because Taylor looked like a million bucks against low AA finishers. I think we are seeing the same thing today. I saw someone predicted that Nolf would beat Martinez "like a red-headed stepchild" somewhere on the boards. I've heard similar statements from others elsewhere. I'm on the other end of the spectrum because I'm not sure how anyone can clearly say that Nolf is a better wrestler than a guy like Dein Heil. I believe p4p Heil would have beaten Nolf last year and would have presented just as big of a challenge to Martinez. So...how good is Nolf?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Efe0-y0BxsI Why was Martinez hit for stalling in the second period? Look at the sequence from 1:30 to 1:10 left in the second period. 5:33 to 5:54 on the video. Explanation anyone?
