J'den Cox fails to make weight.

He made weight, but he was late to weigh-ins so they didn't count it.

It's a big day, maybe the biggest in ones life.  And he's late?  I'd be there an hour early running up and down the road to make weight.  Seems funny to me.

I don't know which is worse, missing the clock or missing the lbs.

The backside forfeits have starting flowing.

65 - Frank Molinaro and James Green - out

Frank retired anyway, so no sense possibly getting injured for a 3rd spot on the team.  Green is a true tweener.  These weight classes really suck.

This is incorrect Molinaro DID wrestle and beat Henderson 10-1  then got teched by Yianni 10-0

Semi's are set:

Gilman vs Colon
Fix vs Vito

Retheford vs McKenna
JO vs Yianni

Nolf vs Carr
Dake vs Wick

Taylor VS Dean
Bo vs Zahid

Moore VS Walz
Macchiavel vs Zillmer

Kerk vs Gable
Gwiz vs Bradley 

JO vs Yianni will be a good one.  Bo vs Zahid will be a good one. Fix vs Vito will be good.  Without Cox in there, kind of puts a damper on things.

57:

Gilman has to the favorite, but I picked Vito from the get-go once I heard Suriano was out. If Vito can wrestle like he did in the first period against Fix for two periods, I really like his chances of bringing home a medal.

65:

JO is the favorite. It was not pretty for McKenna the last time the two faced off (Oliver demolished him in a 10-0 tech), but McKenna might have unlocked another level to his game. Rooting for McKenna to win, qualify the weight, and bring home a medal

74:

Dake is looking amazing. RIP Nolf. I'm sticking to my guns. Dake will beat Burroughs and take home gold for us.

86:

Taylor hasn't looked like his 2018 self. I'm still picking him to big brother Nickal, but I wouldn't be sad to see Nickal win either. I like Nickal's chances to medal, but I like Taylor's chances to bring home gold more.

97:

Snyder will big brother Moore. It's too bad Cox had that weigh-in debacle--ludicrous to happen at this level of wrestling.

125:

Steveson will blow through Gwiz. I expect two dominant showings. He will give up no more than 3 points across his two matches.


In order of confidence:

97kg
125kg
74kg
86kg
57kg/65kg

I'll be on the floor both days. I'll try to stay away from the cameras.  ;D

Ha!!!!! Wish I was there to heckle you!

It's just a few minutes south. Come on down.

Are they letting fans in?


Yep. We start at noon today.

I've got a story here. I'll expound later.

That's pretty cool AKIN.  Let us know which matches you are involved with.

I'm an athlete escort, so I've been lucky to be matside for most of the best matches. It's interesting to see the different warm-up routines the wrestlers have.

Did anyone watch the Ashnault v Henderson consi bout ?  I glanced away to comeback with Ashnault taking Henderson down and to his back.  But no takedown or back points were awarded and AAs bench never threw in the block to challenge.  I'm curious as to what the non-call was about.  I suspect Henderson made an initial move that Ashnault countered to the TD and turn.  They weren't even close to the edge of the ring.

Also, was watching  a 60 Greco consi bout between Merkin and Germinaro.  During the 1st period there were at least 4 challenge brick and all 4 resulted in overturned referee calls. I never watch Greco and don't keep up with its scoring rules, but the number of reversals just blew me away.
