    Does anybody know if the newer weights introduced at the 2018 Ivan Yarygin (70kg, 79kg and 92kg) be present in the major tournaments this year?

    Seeds aren't too fucked imo but there are some head scratchers. Kemererererer got boned. No way Moore should be over Darmstadt. Having Cruz/Suriano and Lee/Nato semis annoys me as well.

    Do we have enough people here to do a fantasy league for nationals?

    I cant watch it, howd he do? Im imagining Ruth would take to Bjj extremely well. He just has that sort of free-flowing, improvisational, instinctual grappling style. In fact, it seems like many of the Penn State guys (including Cael himself) have a grappling style that would take well to Bjj. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that Ricky Lundell and Cael Sanderson have had a strong working relationship going back to Iowa State.

    Mark it down now:

    Match #484 in the wrestlebacks Friday morning will be Chandler Rodgers vs John Chavez and one of them will be pinned in dramatic fashion.

    Neither can I, for I don't have a flow account, lol. It is so annoying how all of this used to be free, until flow decided to cover for all of it and charge for it, too...

    I had a Flo account for a while. Some of the documentaries were really good but apart from that it doesn't really make sense to have Flo for the actual tournaments as most of them wind up on YT.

    I think we would need 10 to make it worthwhile.
