Thread: Sanders v. Robles Match Video

    Exactly. In my opinion by the time a wrestler reaches the NCAA's they have been wrestling for a while and they have been in "big" matches. Everyone that has wrestled long enough has been in "big" matches. They come in different scales but if the pinnacle of your career--that you've worked long and hard to achieve--is the districts finals, or even a district medal match your senior year then it's as big of a match as you'll experience. You should know how to handle yourself in tight spots--both as a coach and as an athlete.

    Isn't that what athletics is all about? Creating pressure and seeing how people perform under that pressure.

    I agree with the champ. The formula is: (Grinding crossface) + (stomp to back) = piss poor sportsmanship. Either one of those happens on its own, he's just going at it tough.
    But, at the end of the day, I really don't care either way.

    I watched Robles tilt Zoetaway about 3-4 times and tech him in about 90 seconds and Z is a quality wrestler -If not for that stupid stall call he would have teched Sanders in the first -as far as strategy ? getting behind 10 points or so and waiting until the match is over to do anything isn't one I'd follow . I personally hope Robles breaks about 4 of Sanders ribs next match .

    Last time I checked a crossface was entirely legal. My god, its coached. The wrestler has the option of turning his head if he can't handle it. Its the same with a deep half. When you succumb, you go over. With the cross face, when you succumb the wrestler can either go for a cradle and drive the head to the knee and lock it up or it allows him to get across to the far arm and break the wrestler down.

    The stomp didn't look good, I will give you that.

    Personally I think this thread is getting off topic. How about that grinding crossface Caldwell put on Metcalf? Boy that sure was something wasnt it.
    Gold is an idiot.

    I would agree, Caldwell's looked alot more vicious than Sander's.

    Well it is off-topic if you are talking about the "golden boy" of the Minnesota fans.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I thought Ness was the "golden boy" of Minnesota fans?
