    This guy's got a point. From my understanding USA wrestling is assembling a pretty elite team to go against these kids. Why not find some opponents closer to their skill level?

    I'm pretty sure a "best of the best" team from Dagestan would have it's way with the best of Illinois (and possibly the best of the United States).

    No one should be debating that the best wrestlers from a good wrestling area in Russia should be able to come the US and beat any state level all-star team. However, one would think that a group of wrestlers that came all the way over from Dagestan to represent their country would be at least decent by Dagestani standards, which I understand is among the best wrestling areas in Russia.

    Illinois is a very good wrestling state, but not really in contention for the top spot. I don't follow youth wrestling so I don't know what level these guy are.

    Also you have to take into consideration that the matches are in Freestyle which is not as famaliar to as Folkstyle to almost every youth wrestler.

    Finally, it was an absolute shellacing by the US. The US won every match and almost every period and most period were not even close.

    Remember that it's freestyle and not folkstyle, and I believe IL has won the jr duals in freestyle the last few years as well as placing very high at Fargo.

    I know that the Illinois team was switched around at the last minute to try to make the match-ups more even. Some wrestlers even bumped up a couple weights. This was the original line-up: http://www.projecttorchusa.org/news/...dualjune09.htm

    As far as the Russian team, I know a couple guys were some of the best junior wrestlers from that area, but in general I think it was more for the cultural exchange. A similar dual was hosted last year with a Bulgarian club team.
