Have you seen the Dake/Taylor FS match? It was a pretty one sided beating, so there's a good reason it's influencing peoples' predictions. For some reason the much-hyped PSU guys had a pretty rough Olympic Trials. Not that I'd expect them to win the tournament or anything, but they gave up a ton of points. Ed Ruth got lit up by Phil Keddy, who's usually a block-and-push-out type of guy who wins 1-0, 1-0.
will this be streamed anywhere?
yea, i had planned on going, but when tickets were still on sale, there weren't any seats available side by side.
What Tomwright said.
The only matches I've seen from the US trails is Howe/Burroughs (which was awesome) and Dake/Taylor, since the feed is blocked in Canada. From what I remember hearing, Taylor gave up a ton of points off of counters, and also seemed to get outmuscled quite a bit. The second (pinning) throw Dake hit was sweet counter off a single leg, while the first was an under-hook throw if I remember correctly.
No idea how Ruth's match went, maybe he got gutwrenched a lot?
If anyone has youtube video of the trials, please post... I don't have much time to search for it these days.
Bumping everyones predictions..
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
