    Tank had a battle with Deakin, who still looks huge at 70Kg. Mostly because, as Pyles put it, Frank 4'd himself at one point w/ a bad choice in defense. Loved how right after (he was losing on criterea), hit that fantastic Hi-C and finished before Deakin knew what hit him. Has Pantaleo in the challenge semis.

    Varner fell asleep at the wheel with 30 seconds left and gave up a takedown to lose 3-2 to Nelson. Totally lost focus.

    Watching Nico go to work is one of my favorite sports experiences. It's not like watching Lionel Messi but more like watching
    Franz Beckenbaur, if you are as ancient as myself.

    Gable is. High school teenager was one brain fart away from senior wtt finals at heavyweight. Yikes!

    I think with the pace/attack rate he had in the 2nd he would have comeback against anybody other than the Coon/Nelson types that are massive even for hwt and rarely taken down. A year or 2 from now he finishes on those dudes.

    Nelson is massive for heavyweight? I mean he’s hard to score on but he’s not massive imo.

    Gorilla Hulk battled, couldn't bring that second bout success to #3.

    Zahid vs Dake, a certain bucknut defeat in rec, and DT's 1st world team. Final X Ticket is looking like a good buy, PD3 included.

    The more I see Zahid, the more I want to see he and Nickal in the same weight class next year.

    I think most folks would find that to be interesting. For that to happen, Zahid has to move up and Bo has to stay. Late May, so lots of time remaining in this off season. I would imagine we might know more by late summer.

    It will be interesting to see how Dake counters Valencias' size and length, nobody has had an answer for it really, since the headgear win for Marky two years ago.

    Speed, and his pace. His pace is unmatched.

    You watch though, Dake will have an answer.

    I think Chamberlain had a savvy, if frustrating strategy for the 3rd match against Molinaro. It seems if you have 2 wrestlers who are fairly evenly matched with not a lot of shooting, then it pays to be the first to be put on the shot clock. Then in the 2nd period they will ding the other guy and put him on the shot clock. At 1-1, the advantage goes to the first guy to go on the shot clock (who ends up scoring last). Chamberlain had almost no offense, but he put the pressure on Frank with that apparent strategy. Frank was VERY frustrated at the end.

    Frank would have lost even with another passivity call though. He was just frustrated. I don't see either guy beating Green.

    No sign of Zahid gassing this weekend too. He took 2 dozen shots, landed 5. I agree the safe money is on Dake, but barely.

    I have a few fun stories and hot-takes, but did anyone else think Tony Nelson had the 4 against Coon in the second match?

    I don't think they've faced each other. Reenan was on Perry's side of the bracket at the Open, is a red-shirt freshman at NC State.

    True, but at that point I felt like Frank was feeling a little desperation being behind on criteria and took a bit of a careless shot that led to Chamberlain's push-out. At least that's how it appeared to me.

    You never, ever, ever want to underestimate your opponent - especially in freestyle wrestling, where a quick 2 &2, or a turn series can spell lights out . . .

    But, counting US Open & PanAm tourney, DT is something like 36-2 in his last 38 freestyle matches at 86kg, w/ those 2 losses being close battles w J'Den Cox.

    In those 36 wins, DT has beaten some past World & Olympic medal winners as well.

    DT is on a mission & grown into 86kg. The spot is his.
    I can't see Reenan touching him.

    Hoping Taylor puts him away quickly and decisively so he can move onto training for the World Championships. This is his moment. Carpe diem.
