Thanks Kyle

Recommended Posts

I know he has years of greatness ahead of him.  Possibly/Probably the GOAT when he decides to leave the shoes on the mat.  What I appreciate about him on top of his greatness is how hard he works to keep a whole nation of folkstylers and freestylers happy.  We can always count on him.  Duderino freaking challenged the guy who many said is the greatest pound for pound and he pulled it off...on top of crowning us World Champs.  Flys out late to the Yarigyn so he can wrestle a back-up hawkeye, and then goes out and wins the tournament.  Flys back, puts on his folkstyle hat and leaves his heart and soul out there.  Fell short, but sheesh!  What a freakin man!  I've known a lot of truly amazing men in my lifetime, but this man sure makes me proud to be a wrestler, and an American.  Good stuff!!!!  Continued success sir!

I was rooting for Penn St in this one. When Kyle and Nevills got in that semi leg pass kind of situation, part of me wanted them to stay there for as long as possible..... clock running helped PSU....bigger part of me was yelling at the ref to call the stalemate before we ended up with another unfortunate Nolf like injury. DO NOT want to see Kyle injured, both as an NCAA fan and because, you know USA USA USA!!!

agreed on that stalemate. Ryan wasn’t screaming for it and the ref was just standing there going La De Da.

Did they stop that for potentially dangerous, or was that just something the announcer said?

If it was called PD, then I'd like to know what the ref saw that changed it to PD. Like with Nolf, the situation changed a couple seconds before it was called and therefore could have been called before that injury occurred.

I agree, in fact about the time scrambling appeared is when stalling disappeared as far as the calls by the officials.  The leg pass position was certainly one of the first.  Universal scrambling positions.  Personally, I feel it has allowed a freedom of techniques to flourish and develop that we would never have seen otherwise.  After realizing all of the strategy and scoring maneuvers on the edge of the mat will disappear, I'm in favor of a push-out rule over watching guys find the gym floor with their toes.  I believe this newfound wrinkle to defense, will either require mat space added somehow, or a way for a guy to tap out and go back to the middle has been developed. 

 

We currently have World Champions in all age groups who wrestle both folkstyle and freestyle or pardon me wrestled folkstyle in their college years.  I would like to hear comments from JB, and Kyle, and DT and Gwiz, etc. on how they appreciate or despise the push-out rule.  They obviously use it at the highest levels.

European, World and Olympic champ Ahu Akgal fromTurkey will be training with Kyle at the Ohio RTC for the month of February Kyle just announced on Twitter. That’s one way to get ready for the much heavier Neville’s and Coons of the world in the future. Kyle doing work. Tervel has been invaluable with Kyle as well but I’m sure has scaled much further back now being a full time coach and not competing.

Everyone on this board agrees and has argued that Steel Sharpens Steel.  I saw another post that indicated that having Akgul at the ORTC won't matter in his prep for Coon or the big guys at NCAA's.  I call B@#$#@#%.  

 

Having the ability to train with him, Petriashivili, Gwiz, or any other freestyle HWT medalist is only going to make Snyder better tomorrow than yesterday. 

 

To believe otherwise is foolish.

they didn’t say it wouldn’t matter, they said him coming to train there had nothing to do with Coon. That’s all. Of course working with Akgul is going to be beneficial.
