    Re: Metcalf's Problem International

    I think his tendency of being out of position is due more to the speed of his attack. I think at times his opponents have more time to adjust and counter his shots/attacks due to the missing...

    Re: Uuuhhhh, Flo rankings defying logic?

    So by this logic what the 174 lb ranking says to me is, as returning champ Perry gets the #1 seed and will continue to be so until someone knocks him off, but Howe is the better wrestling (in Vais'...

    Metcalf's Problem International

    I got tired of seeing the 2013 Iran Team Trial thread so I figured I'd start a new one here for the hell of it. Maybe this has been said before but here it is:

    Could it imply that Howe's natural or better suited weight is at 165?

    Re: My try at a poster for Buckeye Wrestling

    Now that the leggings have been removed it looks like he may have a serious injury there on his lower right leg, borderline compound fracture.

    Actually, he's back, and wrestling at a pretty high level. Somewhat of a miracle type deal I guess.

    Re: Burke Paddock commits to the Hawkeyes

    Re: Best at 133, 2000 to 2013

    In wrestlebacks Johnny's senior year and Lee's junior year, 10-8. But I think Lee as a senior beats Thompson his senior year or any other year, which is what these rankings are about, a guy's best...

    I think I still see him on other forums.

  14. Re: Kyle Dake(2011) vs Jordan Oliver(2013)-Super interesting match up

    Especially if he gets to weigh in at around 8 in the morning and then put on 12 or so pounds like he did against Frank. Oliver would look downright diminutive walking out onto the mat with him.
  15. Re: Kyle Dake(2011) vs Jordan Oliver(2013)-Super interesting match up

    At 149 Dake beats Oliver in the controlling fashion that Gopherfan outlined. Low amount of points, Too big and strong, too good at counters and riding.

    Wanted to make this call, but I had to go by the results. I don't think the real Oliver showed up to the finals match against Stieber and I thought Oliver was better that year. BUT, I think that the...

    Re: Best at theirweight, 2000 to 2013

    Heh, I forgot the peak part myself and I was the one who stipulated it.

    Still, in general, someone who makes the finals 1x is likely not as good as a multiple finalist.

    Best at 133, 2000 to 2013

    Putting this weight thing into separate threads so if someone wants to contribute to 125, they can do it there, and if they want to talk 133, they do it here. And, it looks like 133 will need its...

    Good stuff by all, and as I predicted there is no shortage of disagreement. Abas seems to easily be the overall #1 but Robles, Hunter, Escobedo, McD and Nickerson all got #2 picks. Like I said, this...

    Stieber. Although he doesn't even look big at 133. I think the brothers should stay where they are.
