starts at 7:50. opponent tries to pat him on the shoulder and he shoves him away. also made a scene by refusing to let the ref hold his hand which is the official procedure. was given an attention by the judge for this. then as they walk to the corner he shoves his opponent again. all this playing out over two minutes. not a spur of the moment burst of bad judgment, but an extended temper tantrum.

no lol just no. if that was a hawkeye you would see it for what it was. you never shove your opponent like that after the match when they're trying to show you respect.
i'm referring to his consistent disrespect displayed towards opponents. before this, it was typically in interviews or social media posts. first example was him calling labriola unathletic. another was when he talked about how unimpressive burroughs and marstellar were. i think he had another during the michigan dual that he came off as a jerk in.
like i said. love his skillset. dislike his persona. very similar to gilman when he was a hawk except now i don't have to swallow my distaste and root for him (unless he's representing USA).
Yeah the "help them up after pinning them" thing Bo did in 2019 I was not remotely a fan of and never defended it either.Just watched it. Wasn't nearly as dramatic as you portrayed. Yeah...he was upset and bummed, but he did shake hands twice, but didn't want consoling from the dude...similar to how a few guys reacted after getting stuck by Bo.
Do I wish he handled it a bit better...yep. But come to think of it...maybe Terry Brands could sit him down and talk with him, and explain how to lose with dignity. Whaddya think?
Honestly it’s time for her to start climbing the weights. Go 53kgs. Japan can just have their other young phenom Fujinami go to 50kg. Id like to see that match. Or Susaki vs Japans Olympic gold medalist at 53kgs. Their depth is insane. I remember Adeline Gray saying she thought we could “maybe” compete with the Japanese THIRD team lol.
Santiago is just as quick as Carr. That was fun.Hidlay opened with a hip toss for four and did just enough to avoid being put on the clock, added two step-outs to move on, 6-0 over Karypbaev (KGZ).
Carr looked good, trading takedowns before adding three guts to his second, winning 10-2 over Santiago (PUR).
The Iranian that Hidlay beat was last years U23 runner-up so that’s a huge winTrent Hidlay came back from a 6-0 deficit to beat Gholami (Iran) 15-6. Hidlay did it with an underhook (ironically against an Iranian) and conditioning. His first takedown was a 4 that got challenged to a 2.
After she wins 4 weights in 4 years, then she can start getting younger.Honestly it’s time for her to start climbing the weights. Go 53kgs. Japan can just have their other young phenom Fujinami go to 50kg. Id like to see that match. Or Susaki vs Japans Olympic gold medalist at 53kgs. Their depth is insane. I remember Adeline Gray saying she thought we could “maybe” compete with the Japanese THIRD team lol.
totally agree no one should get back points when the guy is nowhere near his back!Someday I may be a free convert. I enjoy it but will forever lobby against a single lace move dictating the victory or ending the match outright with a 10 point sequence.
Limiting any one move to 6 points max. will go a long way towards fixing it. First Zain now Carter. This list is long for team USA men, women all ages.
I didn't see the match but the PBP certainly seemed to indicate Carter was the aggressor, succeeded on more offensive attacks. It's brutal to try and overcome an 8 point hole from one move. I just don't like it.
JS I have to admit when you're right you're right.
It's not like anyone who is an Iowa fan can really know what a high bar is or what the standard is for how someone acts in defeat....wait yes they do we will take it under consideration lol. Have a great Saturday JS just messing with you
