Aviator:  Asked the same question on another forum after someone wrote that he won a "dominating" victory.  

 

Someone else on that forum,however, noted that being a 5th year senior wrestler is no easy task and that they are often a bit beat up physically and mentally.

 

I suspect Bo is going to spend the rest of the season managing his way to victories with his solid, unspectacular tactics and will wait until NCAA's to really cut loose. 

 

And then he'll be done.  

 

Interesting take. I hope to see his best at the national tournament. I keep hearing about this great wrestling Bo is capable of, but I haven't seen it yet in his career. I haven't seen the "solid positioning" that people around here talk about. Maybe he will reveal this at NCAAs. Good luck to him.

3-3-2 isn’t good enough for you to indicate that Bo is great at wrestling?

Absolutely not, especially at this level. In a true non-age group national championship tournament, I don't see him ever placing that high.

So almost nobody is great at wrestling

How do you define great at wrestling? You have to have a world title?

Yes, almost nobody is great at wrestling. Just like "almost nobody" is great at basketball, or chess, or anything. Greatness is a very high standard. At least it used to be.

Recent interview with Bo Jordan.  If you listen closely he says a couple things that give a lot of insight into why he hasn't been as dominating.  Bottom line is he's had significant physical issues.

I’d argue that he’s at least a “good” wrestler.

Pretty sure Metcalf and Taylor come up short on the bigmik greatness scale. Nothing wrong with that, it’s his scale.
