Six Minutes Fifty One Seconds

Recommended Posts

Yes, after getting ridden like a dog and turned in the first period, Zilverberg inexplicably took down in the 2nd.  Lewis then told his coaches that he wanted to take top in the 3rd, I'm sure looking for the fall.  Zilverberg did do a good job stalling out on the bottom in the 2nd and 3rd, only giving up 1 penalty pt. and no turns, but it seems a bit embarrassing to make it to nationals and then make decisions in a match (taking down in the 2nd) that basically give you no prayer of winning the match.

Major props for the reference. Since hearing that famous post-match Dake interview, I always wondered how the hell you ride a dog. Maybe they ride huskies in the frozen tundra of Ithaca, NY, and Coach Smith, having spent some time assisting there, brought that art form to Missouri.

I do kind of respect Zilverberg for doing this, even though it was incredibly dumb. He believes in himself at least.

 

Lewis looked great. Cannot wait for him to wrestle Vincenzo.

In my opinion Zilverberg should have taken top.  The only guy who Lewis can't seem to ride is Rogers, everyone else is toast on the bottom.  And Lewis is too good on his feet to take neutral (until he gases in the 3rd).  But he can be ridden (unless Zilverberg is just bad on top, which I don't know).

Little known fact the "I" in Iditarod stands for Ithaca.
