International / Yaser Dogu
« on: July 27, 2018, 07:42:18 PM »
Doing pretty well.   Burroughs, Taylor, and Gilman in the finals.   Snyder lost 3-3 in the semis.  Steiber lost first match and is out.

Not too bad.   3 guaranteed silvers and one bronze maybe and the other half of our team is on tomorow. 

Taylor pinned his way to the finals.  He is looking really good.  He faces Sulaymanov of AZE.  He's dirty and very beatable.

International / Final X

So what do you guys think of this?   3 weekends rather than just one.  And in different areas.  This sounds to me like a really good reason to buy Flow or Track. 


Off-Topic / Kilauea - The Big Island Volcano
« on: May 08, 2018, 11:26:38 AM »
This disaster on the Big Island is just horrible, but fairly predictable.  When we lived there in the early part of the 21st century, there was a road that went from the Volcano National Park to near the neighborhood now under assault.  While we were there, it was covered by 6-8 feet of lava.  To get out to watch the lava flow into the ocean, you had cross over this looking at old road signs that are now at knee level. 

The Hawaiian chain of islands was made by the hot spot that is under the Big Island right now.  The Plate keeps moving towards the northwest so the Puna area is right in that direction.  Now the movement is rather slow, but like I said, it was predictable to happen at some point.  So in fact the Big Island is the newest of the Hawaiian islands. 

I had a friend that owned an acre in that area and I asked him why and he said stuff I don't remember.  I reminded him that it was adjacent to an active volcano spewing lava continually for the last 20 years.  I think he got out of that property but just wow!  The devastation is incredible and the rifts that have opened with lava boiling up and shooting up eruption like is something new.  I feel real bad for the folks that live there because 1)  I think they will be permanently  relocating, and 2) their property values are done, and 3) hopefully they had insurance for this kind of thing for the 26 homes that have burned up.  The lava even ate a Ford Mustang I saw yesterday. 

Pele probably got tired of the human encroachment and sent a signal that enough is enough.   She's upset and now we all know it.  Very fortunately, she was not so vindictive that she took human life.  Everyone is safe for which we can all be grateful.  Hopefully she calms down and rests for a long while!!


College / Biggest comeback after losing in first round
« on: March 19, 2018, 03:56:44 PM »
#10 Emory Parker of Illinois lost his first match and did not lose another.  Took 3rd.  That is a long road to go.  Congrats to him.   

Not only that, but he beat the guy that beat him, Ness, later in the consis.  That's some intestinal fortitude.

College / Surprises in the Semi's
« on: March 16, 2018, 05:58:46 PM »
Wow, two unseeded in the semi's.

Kyle Conel of Kent St took out tOSU's #1 Moore at 197 by pin at 1:30.   
Conel previously beat #9 Weigel 5-0, and then #8 Rotert 8-2.

Tariq Wilson of NC State took out OKST's #4 Brock at 133,  13-5.
Wilson previsously beat #5 Erneste 8-5, and then unseeded Montoya 7-1.

Commanding victories.   Just wow.

It would be great to see them win tonight.


College / 2018 1st session results
« on: March 15, 2018, 03:59:40 PM »
Seeding folks generally did well.  Here are the holes:

(Projected AA's are highlighted)

125   #16 Schwarm
133   #5  Erneste,  #12 Terao,  #15 Nasar
141   #16 Weaver,  #9 Alber,  #8 Lee, #15 Limmex
149   #13 McChrystal,  (with #10 Tsirstis almost losing, won in 3rd OT)
157   #16 D'Angelo, #11 Ream, #2 Lavallee
165   #8 Rogers, 
184   #12 Carr, #10 Parker,
197   #16 Brunner, #9 Weigel, #12 Louseiousersu (don't speak or write French!), #11 Griego, #10 Boykin
285   #16 Stencel, #13 Miller

They nailed 174, did well in most others.   197 was particularly difficult.  Only a four top 8 seeds lost in the first round, with #2 Lavalleee being the most prominent.   Always difficult to say how stuff like that happens, but it does and that's why they have the big dance!!!



College / How Coon beats Snyder
« on: March 13, 2018, 11:13:25 AM »
I was thinking about this on my walk to my car from work.  I think Snyder wins, but I think Coon, if he is smart and I hear he is, did not show all his cards at B1G.  Who cares if you win B1G but lose NCAA's?   I think he has a plan.  If he does and if he is smart it is my plan.   ;D

He wears him out, not taking shots and leaning on him.  Really tying him up and having him carry Coon's weight.  We've seen Snyder get fairly winded working on Coon.  Then in the 3rd period when Snyder is good and tired, Coon should start tying up hard and leaning on the head and pushing.   Head lock and bring him down full weight.  Come around for the takedown.   Repeat if necessary if Snyder gets away.   I think it is a winning formula with a tired Snyder.  If Snyder does not tire, then this will not work as well.  He has to work him hard the first 2 periods.

However, Snyder is Snyder afterall, a World Champion 3 times over and Yarigan Champion 2 times.  He is cagey, knows his game, quick and smart and not afraid to go for a leg.  If Coon does not wear him down and crush him, Snyder wins. 

Whaddya think?

Other Sports / Shaun White's half pipe
« on: February 13, 2018, 12:47:02 PM »
Wow, watched the preliminaries last night and White just blew the competition away.  He was faster, higher (by a lot) and more tricksy.  He was just more and even someone like me could see this.  He skyed on his tricks obviously higher than anyone else.  Two guys beat his first run and he came back and scored near perfect.  Amazing.


International / DT pins in Semi final win with old school arm bar
« on: February 02, 2018, 07:12:56 PM »
Here is the link.  The arm bar gets put in at 2:20.   This is not the whole match.  But that arm bar series is pretty good.

To show his finals pin, it starts around 2:00 where he goes for a takedown but gets flipped and then he reverses it very handily.  That boy showed some chops!
