Logan Stieber is more of a Logan Stieber a RS Freshman who comes in wrestles pretty good during the season then breaks my heart beating the national champ with a questionable call.
Fun Fact of the day, my assistant wrestling coach was wrestling partners with J Jaggers when they were both at Chanel High School (Where my Head Coach was the first ever head wrestling coach in that school's history)

I'm guessing your coach took a few lumps in practice but came out all the better for it.
I know I'm getting nit picky here, but I am a Buckeye and Stieber fan, so I'm allowed. There was no call. There can't be a questionable call when no call was made. The only way it could have been a questionable call is if the ref actually made a call. Much like the questionable call in the McIntosh vs Campolattono match a few weeks earlier. So, I would say that Oliver's decision to wait so long to shoot was the only questionable call someone made.
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
JO did jack shxt for 6:50 seconds -Steiber deserved the win.
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.
I just watched the match for the first time. The next time the neverending debate that folkstyle is better than freestyle comes up because folkstyle has control, I'm bringing up this match. Not sure how standing behind someone (first JO takedown) and laying on your stomach while someone has you in a front headlock (last second action) aren't terribly "controlling". This match also seems like a textbook case for video review.
Based on the original topic, I think Stiever is just that good. He has already placed high at the jr worlds and the Olympic trials, and has beaten the current 55 kg Olympian. Oliver seems to struggle just a little bit when the pressure is on.
