The Flo Effect

Recommended Posts

I am putting myself out there by dating myself but here goes anyways.

Maybe I am not alone but does anyone remember their coaches hitting up other coaches for video recording or VHS Tape (gosh I am old) of a soon to be opponent most often in the post season?

Now anyone, anywhere can cue up good ole Flo and bam....I can instantly adjust my wrestlers strategy.

For instance, my current favorite underclassman, Daton Fix.

Yes he is good. Would he catch me in an inside trip or overtie shrug or throwby if I was sure not to collar tie or inside tie while circling in or out?

Maybe, maybe not.

All I know is that today's elite better be able to adjust way quicker than the previous generations.

Instead of what worked all year, might be what worked all tournament today.

Bless you and curse you Flo.

Unless your last name is Lee, my guess is he definitely would still be able to get you with this move.

More than scouting opponents, I think Flo's biggest impact is in making technique available for everyone. I'm not just talking about the technique section of Flo. You can watch the sport evolving real-time on Flo because they do such an impressive job of covering every major (and many minor) event in every age group all the way up to the senior world level.
