Nice job young man! 

 

I wonder if the weight cut was hard.  He had a difficult beginning, but that was probably more just the opposition.  Anyway, David wrestles a style that is beginning to look familiar.  Cael, David, now Jason.  I would call it the scoring machine style.  I've been watching this sport for a long time.  All credit to the professor.  When Cael graduated, I thought we'd never see anyone wrestle like that again.  Both David Taylor and Jason Nolf have proven me wrong.  This really is a style that can be taught and repeated.  It's what Iowans thought the Iowa Style was, and what OSU thought their technical and strategical advantages were.  The combination of the footwork from the old stance and motion days, and the clearing and controlling tie-ups like masters of martial arts, combined with fakes and feigns is just beautiful to watch.  I know John Smith is going to coach for a while still, but I would love to see this kid wearing an orange coaching vest one day.

I was worried after the Cuba match but he got better as the tournament went on. Was also cool to see him integrate moves you basically only ever see in folk into free. That's hard for the rest of the world to plan for.

Torreblanca won Pan Ams last year, including beating the Venezuelan who got 5th in the Olympics 12-6.  He is no slouch.

He has issues against freakishly strong guys. Black? Ha maybe but Dake is about as northern euro as you can get but the common theme is freakishly strong. Yazdani is not a freak therefore Taylor's style is made for him while Yazdani does extremely well against the hulks.

Speaking of OSU, and as a fan of that team (and of course, the legendary John Smith), I am wondering where are the OSU wrestlers on the U.S. national team? I was hoping to see Alex D. make some noise or Oliver. Alex D wrestled Zaseev I think in the final of the junior worlds. I think his style should be good internationally. May be he goes to 79kg too? Its unfortunate that OSU has no wrestlers on the USA team given they are one of the best teams...I don't know if that is political or what, yet Smith is a coach of the team...Weird!

Not politics.  You have to win your place there.  Iowa and Okie St used to have the majority of folks but not so much anymore. 

 

Gilman - Iowa

Steiber - tOSU

Retherford - PSU

Green - NEB

Burroughs - NEB

Cox - MISS

Snyder - tOSU

Gwiz - North Carolina State

 

Nebraska and tOSU seem to be the leaders currently.  With 10 on the next team, there will be more parity.  It ebbs and flows.  But I really don't think politics plays a part.

Should the school be based on where they went to college? Where they train?

How long is Ghulk PSU?

Gwiz trains at PSU regularly too. What if he moves there this year?

I was just being biased for PSU. I really think it should be where they went to school when they competed. I would like to claim Gwiz as well:-) He trains with Varner at the NLWC.

Watching Taylor go folk style and destroy the opponents with those techniques was just outstanding.    The international wrestlers for the most part don't get good looks at those types of techniques and it may be something USA exploits further down the road
