    Default Askren defeats Herbert in Super Match @ Midlands

    Herbert was outwrestled and made to look stupid on the mat. Has this guy been napping instead of working out? Does he think looking 'cut' will win matches for him? Askren has his number and made him look like a High Schooler out there.

    On the plus side, the refs did a good job.

    That's just slightly harsh isn't it? He's a world silver medalist, 2 time undefeated NCAA champ with a runner-up and 3rd to go along with it and a Hodge winner. I suppose the same argument could be made if you were so inclined to say the same about Pendleton and Askren...........it was an exibition with nothing on the line.

    Good to see both Herbert and Askren put on a show. NO WAY either wrestler looks stupid.... Great to see the match put together, and thanks to both of of them for the 'supermatch' - regardless of how it worked out, I had been looking forward to it all day.

    On the negative side, the original post was really in bad form.

    No, it was not a super match. and Askren DID make herbert look stupid on the mat the way he wrestled and especially the way he pushed him around at the end. Herbert looked like a high school kid.

    If he didn't come to wrestle he should have stayed home.

    If either really wanted to get on the mat they should have entered the tournament. It has a long history of post grads coming back to wrestle.

    The only stupid looking person currently might be you mr. Zzyzx

    Herbert has been training freestyle. Won a silver medal at the worlds.

    Herbert is a pretty inconsistent wrestler, but I don't think he crapped the bed in this match. I just think that Askren is a folkstyle genius who knows exactly what to do in each situation. His grip strength is unreal also. He also timed those shots perfectly; Herbert was probably worried about Askren's counters and wasn't expecting him to shoot straight in.

    Very entertaining match IMO. I think they should do one of these more often. Does Cael Sanderson still do exhibition matches?

    If we're going to go there then we need to bring Tom Brands out.

    A coaches exhibition match (not necessarily of either coaches mentioned) would be awesome.
