    Default I just don't get Jenkins

    Are you telling me Jenkins can't wrestle Metcalf better than Palmer? Why is Jenkins so short on energy? Why is he giving up leg takedowns so easy? At Junior Worlds he looked much quicker. This match was his to lose.


    Mecalf can't wrestle unless his opponents stop wrestling! Jenkins was all over him in the beginning. I don't get it.

    Overall I thought it was an entertaining match though.

    You don't think Metcalf himself has anything to do with the fact that his opponents "stop wrestling", as you say?

    Yeah he wears them out I guess. I just hate that "wear out" philosophy because guys just give up takedowns too easy in the beginning and then get them very easy at the end.

    Yeah I was wondering the same thing too. Metcalf is not that impressive don't get me wrong he's good but Jenkins had way more technique than him I don't get it either and just as the same reason why Poeta let Leen up in the third period.

    he just ran out of gas.. how do you run out of gas in the ncaa finals?? wtf. everyone eles in the finals looked in great shape the whole match. in the varner and pucillo match they went for 12 minutes and neither of them looked any where near as gassed as jenkins did after 3 minutes.

    What is weird to me is that Metcalf has closer matches against guys that Jenkins beats.

    Varner and Pucillo pushed on each other for 12 minutes, that's not really comparable.

    Metcalf just seems to have Jenkins number. Jenkins looked to have plenty of gas against Caldwell.
