I hear you. All valid points. 

I’d be shocked if he lost to a tier 2 though. If that is his level I doubt he shows up. That would mean Gilman is completely handling him in the room and maybe even Clark is beating him more often than not. 

If he lost to Gilman or Fix I wouldn’t be surprised. 

Lee and Gilman aren’t qualified yet for trials, so we will likely see both in freestyle in December. Lee can qualify by winning 2020 NCAAs, but it seems very risky to wait until then

cant wait to see how this all plays out

Gilman is qualified for Oly Team trials by being a 2017 World team member.  57 kg has the most guys (5) currently qualified for the weight: Gilman, Fix, Garret, Graff, & Colon.

Zain is the only one at 65kg

74kg has JB(in finals), Dake(in semis), Green & Carr

86kg has Taylor, PD3, and Cox(who would be in semis) if he goes there.

97kg has Snyder (in finals) & Cox(who would be in semis) if he goes there

125kg has Gwiz & Parris

True. Missed the part of the criteria saying a senior team member from 17, 18 and 19 already qualify. Thanks for the list  

Wouldn’t Stieber technically be qualified at 65? I know he is retired but I wouldn’t be surprised if he showed up at Olympic trials. He never got to live that dream. 65 also isn’t that big of a cut for him 

I’m not so into the criteria. I think they should include any junior gold from the last 3 years. It feels like they are penalizing guys who aged out like Mekhi. Also maybe allowing all junior medalists would make sense for 2019, as it means they just lost once. Often times then junior world gold wins seniors the next year, so it seems like an “acceptable” loss.

Don't care for Gilman's personality but admire him training over there to get better. Big props to him for taking the step.  And had to be a decent tournament considering the location.  Congrats all the way around.

Yup. There were very few foreigners there so even if he didn’t beat any names, you know the Dagestanis he took out we’re damn good and really didn’t want to lose to an american. Add to that he is a world silver and they were probably all gunning for him, just as our up and comers would do if a random Dagestani world medalist showed up at the Schultz.

In unrelated news, I hope Mekhi and IMar hit. No idea who takes that one. Love me some iMar but Mekhi we haven’t seen in awhile and we know how good he was in 2018 in freestyle. That was with just a few months of training. Even JB said by the end of the summer (in 2018) he had gone from smashing Mekhi to fighting for takedowns. That means something

You are right Logan is qualified too.  I didn't include him as he has said he is done.  I would love to see him change his mind.  I also agree with you on including anyone who has won Jr (or U23) Golds during the last cycle.  I would rather see them make the qualification requirements to generous than to restrictive. Unfortunately no one from USAW called and asked me my opinion. :)  :) :)

Well I hope all of our guys have a great tourney, and can build some momentum for themselves going into the last couple of months of the year. 

As far as Gilman is concerned, props to him for winning last week and trying to improve himself. I think he has decided that he is not going gentle into that good night.
