Title: Dake vs Ringer
Post by: mspart on June 18, 2019, 12:03:50 PM
So who wins?  How healed is Dake?  How ready is Ringer? 

This will be a very interesting matchup. 

Ringer appears to have improved exponentially from last year, Dake hasn't wrestled a match in competition all year.  It will be great entertainment for sure.

Have to go with Dake but it should be very entertaining.

It's coming up.  Will Kid Dynamite survive this?  Is he healthy enough to do this?  Will Ringer ring his bell? 

The way Ringer has been wrestling, I expect the scores to be quite close.  Dake is dangerous without legs.  Almost dangerous without arms.

I have no idea how this is going to go but my official pick is Dake.  I have to assume that if he's going to wrestle that he's healthy.  If he's not then why not do what Taylor is doing and take the year to get healed and move up/down?

I remember Les Gutches won the Open in 2000.  So he sat on top of the OTT's.  He injured his back and made the date later.  He had to face Charles Burton who was tough but not that good.  Les won one and lost two.  His back just couldn't do it.  He did not medal.  Gutches got Bronze the year prior.  A really tough break for Gutches.

Dake gets extension into August based on Doctor's letter, But now he's asking to compete in Spain this week end.

This should not be allowed. If he's well enough to wrestle in Spain he's well enough to wrestle Ringer today.

Yep, but it is a done deal according to themat.com.  Maybe USAW thinks the Spain event is not an event where he can be seriously challenged or injured.

Ringer got his bell rung.  But no takedowns in two matches.  That's just crazy.

The OSU coaches did not do a good job of reparing Ringer. He was tentative and too cautious. However zen-like defense will do that do you.

I haven't seen the matches yet.  But no takedowns or turns doesn't sound that exciting.  Winning by pushouts and passivity as the only points, as bad as GR back in the day.

Watch the first one. No td’s is a bit deceiving.

Saw them.  Dake owned Ringer.  Alex could get nothing done and Dake did everything offensively.  Dake is just so positionally proficient - amazing.

What surprised me is how quickly Dake got in on the leg in the first match. I feel for Alex as you know he’s really worked for this but Dake is in a class by himself right now.

Ringer looked clueless.  No aggression.  Dake's positioning stopped him cold.  I expected more action from Ringer but Dake effectively neutralized him.
