Just seems odd that a kid from Pennsylvania would choose Iowa but oh well.
Not really.  He has Olympic aspirations.  Iowa has a very proven track record for the lighter weight guys.

You're right of course.  I will eat a few here so I don't have to spend eternity eating them. 

Do you like Rocky Mountain Oysters?  You better start eating them too.   ;D

Three things I always get at Golden Corral: meat loaf, fried okra, Brussels sprouts with cheese sauce.

4 things...diarrhea
Not for me, doesn't taste very good.  Now the first 3 posted by n9531 I can go with.

Actually, it was first USA Wrestling.  Can't forget Mark Scott.

It's Joseph and Martinez then all the others.  Marinelli is a plodder.
And a plodder who already beat Joseph.

The only difference is that the random draw is mandatory in high school, optional in college. No mention of how the random draw is conducted.
I always do it just before weigh ins and with the head coach of home team.

Starting meets at 125 versus the schools and the news reporting scores starting at 125 skew the results.

Fundamentally, who cares ?  Everyone wrestles.

Exactly. Why have a rule that isn't followed or enforced?  An opportunity to shorten and simplify the rule book, if only in a small way.
The rule should be followed sim ply because it is a rule.  Refs should never pick and choose what rules they want to follow and what rules they want to ignore.  That prerogative seems to be solely in the hands of POTUS.

If Coon has to cut to make 285 and Snyder goes 230 - that is a 55 pound difference.  Does anyone think that Zain Rutherford (149)could beat Kollin Moore (197) or Willie Miklus?  Actually that is only 48 pounds but who is counting?

When I was a HS heavyweight and would wrestle around with my brother and the other lightweights our coach would stop us and say

"That is why they have weight classes!"

At some point it is not realistic to assume Kyle Snyder can always beat every other heavyweight - and the last two matches against Stoll and Coon seem to be proof that there limit - even with someone as talented as Snyder is.
It isn't the pounds but the weight percentage difference.  The Zain example doesn't apply.

Stoll has not wrestled Snyder this season and Snyder played with Stoll like a doll last year when they wrestled.  Stoll actually got injured in that match.

I have not seen the full match.  It would appear that Sanderson made a great decision and Cassar wrestled an awesome match.  I did see how he rode Moore like a mule for the last minute or so (all I can find on youtube).  Tough tough tough.


Speaking of getting ridden.... Did you see Rivera dog Spencer Lee? Rode him like a rented mule.

And there is another thing I never understood - why would rented mules be easier to ride than ones you own?
If a rented mule is not easy to ride, it becomes fox food.  A pet mule extracts sympathy.

285 was moot had Moore won as expected.  Cassar couldn't have wrestled better countering everything Moore through at him.
Surprising that the #1 guy would go down to a backup.

Snyder should have just stayed with basic takedowns and secured the major first.  That big throw attempt cost tOSU the dual.

Thursday.  Saw them in concert about 10 years back or so.  Very relaxing music.

Minnesota said the same thing about Dustin Schlatter too.  We know how that turned out.  We will see.

Who's that ? Daddy, grandpa, uncle Pete and the girls?
I don't know.  I stumbled across them on youtube.
