That ... was awful.
That ... was awful.
I don't know what his deal is, but I hope he gets it all figured out
Zach Bailey was very impressive. Very fluid in everything he does. Granted competition wasn't much but still looked great.
Bubba Jenkins had a couple of "wow" duckunders, but gassed big time and almost lost. If he had lungs he'd be unstoppable.
ASU looked flat throughout. I liked Oklahoma's 197lber i think. The guy that hit two big time slidebyes, might have been 184lber, not sure.
Great to finally see some college wrestling this year!

Bubba looked gassed in the third.
Bubba will have a hard time placing this year.
Must have been Patterson's first go with Robles.
That cradle that was locked up on the right side of Bubba sure put a lot of pressure on his left shoulder, hence the injury timeout. LOL. Even though I'm an ASU alum it's hard to root for people like that. Honestly, he spends way too much energy rooting for other people, trying to get the crowd into it, etc. Obviously he is out of shape too, but that doesn't help.
174 wasn't very exciting. I don't see how they didn't call Caldwell for stalling as he didn't return Starks for about 10 seconds from behind, but he would have won either way. 184 ASU had an early lead but couldn't pull it off. Not very surprised on that one, you perform how you practice.
Robles is a beast. Couldn't be a nicer kid or more of a role model. Not many kids come along like him.
I blinked and missed what happened w Edward's match. It looks like he thought he was getting choked or something. But he got up pretty quickly for being choked out, so who knows.
"Now class, I'd like for you to transition from downward dog....straight to FULL BRING!!!"
I agree with your assessment of 174 -Caldwell did pretty close to nothing the entire match E1RT1-184 was pretty bad too-how Scmittke beat Perry is a mystery . Cooper's knee popped out and he tried but could not even hit his stance . Robles tilted Patterson when I thought Patterson was coming up and out -amazing . Ashmore ??Does he even care ?
