  1. Re: Burroughs will be our only Freestyle Olympic Gold

    Too bad that JudoWrestler isn't on these boards anymore to explain to us how these opponents didn't prepare for Burroughs and how he's simply coasting on athleticism and a low level attack that can...

    Re: Arm-Spin Awards- US Trials

    Golden Pylon in FS could go to Gavin I suppose, but not an egregious offense with the new and improved rules. Tsargush getting romped at the Russian Nationals sure was a pleasure to watch. And the...
  3. Re: Burroughs will be our only Freestyle Olympic Gold

    Burroughs was very much on the Russians and Iranians radar before the Worlds, so again you're being biased to assert he will not medal because they'll be able to prepare for low attacks. After...
  4. Re: Burroughs will be our only Freestyle Olympic Gold

    Exactly. Though I can't imagine either one of them even considering John Smith a favorite to win the World title cerca '89-91. That's not to say I consider Burroughs anywhere remotely approaching a...

    Re: UNDEFEATED: How many this year?

    I think it will be 3-4 this year, less than 2011's 5. DT and Dake are very unlikely to lose especially with Dake looking stronger/more consistent in the regular season than years past. Molinaro has...

    Re: UNDEFEATED: How many this year?

    Who has Honeycutt dominated so badly that Simaz wouldn't (or hasn't already) have done the same thing to? They are both monsters from neutral but Simaz has the advantage on the mat and the advantage...

    Re: St.Johns Injury.

    It's the sort of injury where if it doesn't require surgery then you can come back fairly soon as soon as swelling and stiffness subsides a bit. But if it's somewhat severe then surgery is required...

    Re: St.Johns Injury.

    Wow, that's a shame. Depending on the severity of the injury he may need surgery and might be out the whole season.
  11. Re: Oliver, Dake, Simaz & Taylor... who has the best year?

    It would be a completely different match today given how much McDonough has improved, but of course Oliver has improved a great deal as well. He was excellent as a freshman and somehow looked...

    Re: Our Coach can beat your whole team!

    I seriously doubt that, if he weren't so gimpy then MAYBE (I too consider Smith far and away the greatest US wrestler ever). Jamill Kelly was asked about wrestling Smith while training for the 2004...
  13. Re: Russian coach says USA will be reborn & dangerous in London

    Yeah but guys like Kudukhov and Saritov don't consistently win the defensive clinch because they have a go-to move or two that hasn't been scouted. Even if you're prepared for what they tend to do...

    Re: World Championship Review

    Not a lot of exciting action (two clinches) but Dlagnev's huge upset over Taymazov after losing pretty badly to him a couple months ago was a highlight for me personally. Tervel lost both clinches...

    Best Pound for Pound Post 2011 Worlds

    I posted this on the USAW forum, and figure it will generate some good discussion over here as well. Vak aka Zapp thinks Sat is too high for never having wrestled at a World Championships, I assume...
  16. Re: 2011 World Championships Discussion: Greco 60/84/120

    Mijain Lopez is not everyone - he's been completely dominant since 2005 with the exception of a potentially thrown match in 2006 finals. He's only been scored on 2 or 3 times over the last few years...

    Re: World Championship Predictions

    Yes Lester gets a lot of love but only from the American journalists, many of whom I think it's safe to assume don't follow Greco very closely (I don't either for the record). If Akzent's post is...

    Re: Fisher out, Proviser in

    Definitely could be the case especially considering Provisor has wrestled 84kg before, but it's also significant to me that Bisek is in Europe training with Fisher and has been the whole time. If...
  19. Re: World Team expectations for Mens Freestyle Team USA as I see it

    I agree with that. The heavyweights Dlagnev and Byers are excellent and have consistently beaten top competition, but unfortunately have titans to contend with (in Dlagnev's case two of them).
  20. Re: World Team expectations for Mens Freestyle Team USA as I see it

    The American journalists' homer picks were more striking than none of the international journalists picking a single American, but still it was a bit surprising. Wrestlers like Lester, Sanderson,...
  21. Re: World Team expectations for Mens Freestyle Team USA as I see it

    If you win Russian Nationals you're a strong medal threat - if Saritov doesn't medal it will be because of the draw and because this is a wide open class. I'm not particularly confident in anyone...
  22. Re: World Team expectations for Mens Freestyle Team USA as I see it

    Saritov can definitely beat Aldatov, they wrestled a very close match at Yarygin (I think) and Saritov is probably better today than he was then. Also, Aldatov is pretty inconsistent for a...

    Re: TOM's Pre Season Rankings

    Isn't Sanjaa supposed to go 157? Also heard that Chamberlain might redshirt. KR (or another PSU fan) is it looking more likely that Andrew Alton won't take the redshirt as originally planned?

    Yeah, he lost the first period of every match with the exception of the finals.
