Young guys beating same room established studs

Post by Seawolf »

Some big recent occurrences

When Yianni beat JO to make final X a couple years back.(I think JO was recently away from Spartan but you get the idea)

Foca taking it to Max Dean

Nick Lee beating Retherford

Starocci beating Nolf handily

Others? Which was most shocking to you?

For me it was Starocci beating Nolf the way he did. Nolf had no good answer.

Reflecting on the above list, only one not on backside of bracket was Yianni / Oliver. Might have something to do with it.

Others have good examples of this not on the backside?

Another example - I figure the incoming freshman 125 and 133 guys down to the third string we’re wiping the mat with Koll since 2010. Which is a surprise. Some thought he still had something left in him but that old man strength left early I hear.

Chris Young had an incredible run at US World Team qualifiers.

Did you not read your own post on the thread you just started? Is there not a dearth in discussion on this board? You aren’t sure what I’m looking for?

Hmm, not sure. Perhaps a discussion? Folks answering the questions I posed or reacting positively or negatively to my perceptions?

The Koll post was an attempt at humor to rile the man himself and get a reaction perhaps?

Oi. I kinda figured it was obvious. But next time I will preface the post with - ‘Hoping others will join in for a discussion on this topic. Board is kinda quiet, thought this could liven things up.’

Ugarles - he did! A slightly different topic but no matter. I do wonder about those flashes. I have Michigan’s Ragusen in mind (sp?) — had an incredible backside run a year or so ago. Suggested greatness at NCAAs. Didn’t happen (yet). Backside runs in freestyle are suspect until proven otherwise.

That said, Carter’s win list is pretty awesome now. Lots of eyes will be on him.
