Yeah, I like Track also.  I use that to keep up on what is going on if i have time to do so.  Haven't paid for Flo yet.

....and I never will.

I understand some people's resentments against Flo. And I also understand not wanting to give one thin $0.10 to someone who I think has screwed me some way or is dishonest in general. (Tyson Foods). But their content is just outstanding and frankly has been a huge boon to amateur wrestling in general. I guess what Im really asking here is... Is your anger against Flo greater than your desire to watch the sport you love on a fairly regular basis?

You have a point.  My angst with Flo is toward Florini, who is no longer there.

My issue is that I don't have time to just sit and watch.  Every once in a while I like to catch a WC or NCAA or OLY, but can't justify any more than that.   If I could, then I'd probably have flo.

Surprising result for me. 

Iowa - 2 Even to seed, 3 above seed, 5 below seed.

PSU - 2 even to seed, 6 above seed, 1 below seed

OKST - 2 even to seed, 5 above seed, 1 below seed


So Tom Brands, even though the team trophy is his, is not happy with his team's performance I'm guessing.  Cael on the other hand is probably pretty happy with his team, and John Smith I would say would be pretty happy also.

I'd say that is a testament to how good of a team Tom built. Having a #1 seed go down early to injury and barely score any points, and then 4 other guys not wrestle to seed, all while the #2 team does about as good as they possibly could do, and still win by over 15. I think Tom's got to be feeling pretty darn good about a repeat next year. Even if Lee redshirts to nurse the injury, Marinelli + Ayala would probably score equally if not more than Marinelli + Lee did this year. Plus, we have to hope Assad's knee is repaired for next season and he can score more than the couple points Brands brought home.
