Ian Miller's Day in Akron 2014

Recommended Posts

With the University Nationals coming up this weekend I wanted to flash back to 2014 when Ian Miller literally looked like he was going to take the world by storm. Here are his seminfinals and finals matches. If ever there was a guy I'd like to see get himself in a great room and pursue freestyle, it's Ian Miller.

 

Semi-finals: Miller vs Bo Jordan

Tragically, he beat Realbuto but the refs added the score incorrectly. Miller was ahead by one in actual points scored when the match ended, before it was incorrectly sent to OT.

You are correct but he did get taken down in overtime. His cardio is his biggest weakness. He can go with anyone when he is fresh. He dominated realbuto until he gassed.

Miller is much better suited to freestyle than folkstyle. He has a high octane offense and a nasty inside trip (his go-to move) that almost always would score 4 in FS, but his weakness was mat wrestling. The cardio issue is real, but less of an issue in FS where you get prior day weigh-ins and a break with one less minute of wrestling per match.

 

He needs to move to a real training center to progress, however. The Ohio RTC is the obvious choice given there is no major threat at his weight training there and it is so close to home.

I had not heard about that. Any details?
