College / Well, PSU did it again

What is the probability they will win the team title next year now that a number of their top guns will go away?


College / I don't care for Fix
« on: March 25, 2019, 11:09:18 AM »
I watched the finals match with Fix and Suriano.  Fix really didn't do much but block.  And his tired roll to a very high jump to start the match is cocky and not needed.  That antic did not work for him this time if it is supposed to impose some sort of fear that he can't be beat.  He's good, don't get me wrong.  I just have to say I don't care for what I saw. 


College / 2019 NCAA Div I brackets

Other Sports / Great standing takedown
« on: February 27, 2019, 02:37:37 PM »

Watch at the 1:17 mark to the 1:21.  Great takedown.

At 1:45 he has an accident.  I've never seen that before. 


College / Okie State vs Iowa
« on: February 19, 2019, 01:45:09 PM »
OK, here is my prediction and I got lambasted last year for my reasoning on Okie State. 

#2 Okie St vs #3 Iowa

In my opinion and observations over the years, I have seen Okie State underperform quite a bit.  They just don't seem to be ready for the big one.  As a result of this my observation or bias, however you want to think of it, I see Iowa winning and moving to #2. 

I don't have a match by match summary, it is just my gut saying Okie St. will underperform. 

All naysayers are welcome.   OKie St is going down!!!


International / Yarigan
« on: January 28, 2019, 11:46:06 AM »
Gilman gets a bronze, Snyder goes without medalling.  Lost his first match.  Chamberlain was in repechage and lost. 

Not a great Yarigan from a medal standpoint, but outstanding effort by Gilman. 


College / Fix - I tell ya, I get no respect
« on: January 16, 2019, 04:28:28 PM »
From wrestlestat:

#1  Suriano  14-1
#2  Micic        6-0
#3  DeSanto  11-1
#4  Lizak        16-4
#5  Bravo-Young  14-1
#6  Fix            19-0

Fix beat Lizak 6-1.  Beat Suriano 3-2

I tell ya, he gets no respect.  I'm guessing he'll get respect at the Big Dance.


International / JB off to Siberia
« on: January 15, 2019, 03:45:53 PM »
I have it on pretty good authority that JB is going to Yarigan at 79kg.   Snyder will go too, but Sadulaev is a chicken and not going.  Ha!!


College / Undefeated

How many undefeated wrestlers will enter the NCAA tourney this year?


Off-Topic / Microwave internal combustion engines
« on: December 13, 2018, 11:49:03 AM »
Has anyone heard of this concept before?  I think this sounds pretty cool.

As tightening emission rules force the car industry to embrace battery power, a German startup says it has the technology to give the combustion engine a reprieve.

Using pulsed microwaves to ignite fuel rather than spark plugs or glow plugs, the engineers behind MWI Micro Wave Ignition AG say they can cut consumption of gasoline and diesel by as much as 30 percent, and emissions by as much as 80 percent, because the fuel burns at a lower temperature.

Cut emissions by 80%?!!  That there is a global warming alarmist nightmare.   If true, the IC engine will be around for a bit longer.  I think it is fascinating the things people come up with.  I looked it up on the mighty google and what I got were a lot of research papers on the topic.  The microwave apparently creates a plasma that burns the air fuel mixture quite evenly and completely.  The trouble is going to be consistency I think. 

Very cool tech.


International / Nice Takedown
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:40:44 PM »
Now I admit this video is not wrestling per se, but it is wrestling.  Hyena vs a deer of some kind.  Watch from 3:00 to 3:22, nice technique on the takedown.


College / buck!!!!! What happened
« on: December 03, 2018, 12:13:59 PM »
No. 1 Penn State blanks No. 10 Lehigh, 42-0, at home

#10 should not be blanked.  They should have gotten a participation point just for showing up or something!!  Strike that - they didn't even get one takedown.   Wow, PSU must be in another universe.


Mixed Martial Arts / Askren in UFC now
« on: November 21, 2018, 06:52:14 PM »
Well, Ben asked, and he received.  He is now in the UFC and from all accounts, he couldn't be happier about it.  He is off challenging everyone.  This will be interesting no doubt. 

Looks like he faces Lawler on Jan 26 at UFC 233.


Other Sports / Arm Wrestling
« on: November 20, 2018, 05:54:01 PM »
I occasionally watch arm wrestling and it is pretty interesting.  The current champ, Devon Larratt, went to Poland to fight Denis Cyplenkov.  This guy looks totally juice up to me.  I'd like to know what other posters on here know about this.  Here is a before and after.  He was pretty big before, but now, Wow!!
