That's a good shirt
Zahid owning Hall again
65-79 will be fun. I'll believe Gable is a match for Coon when I see it but he was damn good today
I don't understand how MyMar and Moore just folded big time
Have they done the 3rd place matches? MyMar couldn't penetrate Heflin's defense and Moore wrestled well but got caught. Certainly better than Sasso today.
Tony Ramos retired, pretty clear after he left his shoes in the middle of the mat.
They wrestled guys who have a lot more experience for one. Kollin I thought looked great today. I still think they'll be ok.
More worried about Gavin Hoffman. And Sasso gassing is a thing.
Still think Sasso has potential to be elite but you rarely see the best of the best gas like he did today. Hoffman has always been a bit limited, he'll work enough to be an all American and a bit higher but he's just not that talented.
I'd attribute it to being the offseason, but this is something we've seen before.
And it's not like he wasn't training to make the JR team. This has been the goal.
Granted everyone was blowing big leads to Brayton, but none gassed like Sasso.
I still think he's a title contender next year.
On the other hand, I no longer think Gavin Hoffman is an AA.
What time are finals?
Gable techs Coon
I said last year I'd never pick against Gable in a match.
He gets wrecked by Coon at WTT.
He loses to a jabroni named Khasanboy at junior worlds.
He loses two matches to Cassar in March.
So I went against my natural inclination and chose Coon in the WTT rematch.
Gable techs Coon 13-3. The Gable era is here. 13 years is my prediction.
Zain over JO 7-6 in match one, 7-6 in match two.
They are really close.
Excited for some Zain-Yianni matches.
What a finish by Nolf, IMAR had dominated him and hit the 4 with no time left. Awesome
Imagine how sick IMAR will be if Nolf goes on to win the 3rd match.
Moore just got teched by Riley fucking Lefever
Dieringer looks fantastic, so prepared to score off of Zahid's shots. Might be the #2 guy in the world at this weight, behind Dake
Ringer is wrestling at another level right now. Can't wait to see him vs dake
Wow Stevenson techs coon
Didn't see the match but that's unfortunate.
Moore teched him fairly easily yesterday. Don't know what's up.
Gable should be wrestling juniors and I'm picking him over the 2x returning bronze medalist.
How can you NOT love Gilman
Pd3 is such a shit.
lol heard about this on FRL and it's just fantastic.
Abdulrashid Sadulaev's birthdate is listed as May 9, 1996. This is significant for a couple reasons.
1) Birthdates are important in wrestling because of age-level competition internationally. Sadulaev won Cadet world titles in '12 and '13 as a 16 and 17 year old and immediately bypassed juniors to start a senior career that has seen him win 101 out of his last 102 matches after losing his very first senior level match (he's 101-2 overall in international competition).
2) May 9 is a very significant day in Russia. It's Victory Day, the day where they celebrate the WW2 victory over Germany. Could this be a coincidence that he was born on this particular holiday? Certainly. However...
3) An internet sleuth found an article from a couple years ago profiling Sadulaev and his exploits. He is a very bright guy and got perfect marks in school. The article went as far as obtaining his school's gradebook and points to Sadulaev's scores to prove that he, in fact, did make perfect grades in all of his classes.
4) However, you can CLEARLY see right next to his name, and alongside those of all of his classmates, that their birthdates are all listed as 1993, not 1996.
5) Sadulaev's REAL birthday is 10/6/1993, making him 18 and 19 when he won his two cadet titles instead of 16 and 17, and instead of celebrating his 23rd birthday two weeks ago, he's in fact just more than 4 months away from turning 26.
6) Russia cheats.
The article, you can clearly see the pic if you scroll down:
I suppose it could be argued (weakly) that it says 1995 vs 1993 but I mean they clearly changed his birth day to make him younger than he is either way:
also, that's clearly a 4, mr perfectulaev
On the bright side, Sadulaev's shelf life is 2.5 years less than it would be if he really just turned 23.
He'll be turning 31 a couple months after the 2024 Olympics.
Instead of being a year and a half older than Sadulaev according to listed birthdays, Kyle Snyder is actually about a full year younger.
I skimmed and see you guys have been talking about post college wrestling. How my Husks looking? Burroughs and James Green the only ones on the scene still?
It’s illegible name szn.
Burroughs and Green have really dominated the scene domestically the last 5-6 years, manning their weights every year.
However, Green lost at the US Open this year to Ryan Deakin (still in college at Northwestern). He won the WTT and now has a best of three against Deakin to win his spot this year.
Burroughs has best of three against Isaiah Martinez where he is a heavy favorite to return to world's for the billionth year in a row.
Other than those two internationally, Colton McCrystal has been competing. He went to U23s and performed surprisingly well there, he won against a tough opponent from KGZ before losing to IRI. He won Pan Ams. Then at WTT he just lost a crazy first round match against Dean Heil that he absolutely BLEW a huge lead late. Like 8 points with 7 seconds left or something. He's been better than expected for sure.
Dukebuckeye only can read and pronounce American names.
When we shift to Freestyle season after folkstyle season is over, he zones out.
This is actually dead accurate.
This is for you, duke. Real white person shit right here.
I would be very, very surprised if Wisconsin is not his destination. Unfortunately for him, Wisconsin's hole in the lineup is at 133 pounds (where he has wrestled for the last three years). However, like I've said here a dozen times, the 2020 olympics is going to have a major effect on the college wrestling season next year.
If Seth wrestles at 133 pounds, he's basically giving up on his olympic dream for 2020. If he goes 141, he's plenty big enough to make 65kg in time for the qualification process.
Wisconsin his Tristan Moran at 141 and Cole Martin at 149. No one really at 133. Wicks at 57/65 so those are set.
Will be interesting to see what happens, 133 or 141 is going to be getting another title contender though.
If he goes 133, oh my.
9. A Gomez
10. T Wilson
Without looking at the other weights I can safely say that's toughest weight class in the country by a mile.
Big 10s! wtf!
Tough to imagine two of those guys not making big 10 semis when any one of them can make NCAA semis imo.
Taylor out, guess that means Downey makes the world team
What's his injury
Wow, this magicman news stinks. Fuck.
My thoughts immediately go to two contrasting scenarios:
1) What if Downey gets trucked at worlds? Do we have any issues qualifying the weight for Tokyo? I don't want to have to wrestle for our 86kg spot next spring, I want it in the books now.
2) What if Downey gets a good draw and somehow wins a bronze medal? That means that he'd get a free ride to final x, while David Taylor, J'den Cox, Zahid Valencia, Bo Nickal, Mark Hall, et al have to wrestle at OTT for the right to face fuckin PD3. This is such a big opportunity for him.
EDIT: Seriously laughing at the possibility of David Taylor and J'den Cox, two defending world champions, wrestling a historic rematch in the Olympic Team Trials finals for the right to face fucking Patrick Downey III.
Knee injury at beat the streets
Just bumped into storniolo, Howe, Kennedy, brewer, and another wrestler I was unable to identify at the cubs game. All seemed like good dudes.
Good to see brewer still getting along with those guys.
Add Dieringer to the 86kg pool. He announced that he's going up not down in 2020.
This is noteworthy for Ohio State's '19-'20 season for a couple reasons:
1. Kaleb Romero back up at 174 pounds potentially. Wrestling at 79kg (174) this weekend.
2. Jaden Mattox at 74kg (163) instead of 70kg (154). He has struggled to make 157 in the past, missed weight for a tourney last year. Might need him as starter at 157 in '20.
3. Chase Singletary at 97kg (213 lbs). Is he cutting back down to 197 in anticipation of Kerkvliet's arrival? Could DG be going right away if his knee is healthy?
Gross to Wisconsin finally official. Question is what weight?
People are just assuming 133 because he's been there the last few years and Wisconsin has an opening at 133.
I think it's foolish. The kid wants to wrestle in the Olympics. He can't do that if he wrestles 133.
Not saying he's not going to wrestle 133 I just don't think it's a slam dunk.
Seth Shumate is the real deal. I think he's going to make the Cadet team and win a world medal.
Next big recruit for OSU after Braxton Amos.
Very interesting weights
Pletcher at 65 not 61
Kerkvliet at 125
Singletary at 97
