    USA looking good in MFS. We lead Russia by 5 points about halfway through.

    Taylor won gold at 86 kg in dominant fashion
    Gwiaz won bronze at 125 kg
    JB won bronze at 74 kg
    Joe Colon won bronze at 61 kg

    Cox (92 kg) and Dake (79 kg) go for gold tomorrow
    Gilman (57 kg) goes for bronze tomorrow
    Stieber didn't reach the medal round at 65 kg

    Snyder (97 kg) and Green (70 kg) compete tomorrow

    It’s always nice when you can send the backup (Colon) and he brings home bronze.

    Would be great if people could actually watch it. This is one of the limiting factors in the growth of FS wrestling.

    I'm familiar with how the small section of die hard wrestling fans can follow and watch the event but in order to "grow" the sport we will need much better than this...

    It's why I think the continued growth of college wrestling is key and why the conversations about the RTC issue and its potential fallout aren't going anywhere.

    I caught the very end of David Taylor's match last night. John Smith was doing the commentary.

    Snyder into the semis. Green lost and did not qualify for repechage.

    WFS also underway.

    Cox (92 kg) and Dake (79 kg) won gold. Dake did not give up a single point the entire tournament.

    Gilman (57 kg) dropped his bronze bout and finished 5th.

    Snyder faces Sadulaev (RUS) tomorrow for gold. Should be a good one, even though the team title is out of reach this time.

    WFS
    Winchester (55 kg) goes for bronze tomorrow. Burkett (59 kg) did not medal.

    Following worlds this year just further shows how stinking crazy John Smiths feat of 6 straight world/Olympic golds is.

    100%. Watching absolute titans like Burroughs and Synder only get to three in a row makes what Smith did almost unbelievable.

    Sadulaev seems like a pretty classy guy.

    I'm not so sure the wrestling gods didn't smite down Snyder for wearing the ugliest singlet ever.

    For those of us that have followed the cowboys over the years, the technique that Snyder got pinned with also won a cowboy a big 12 title. Ty Wilcox....He had an outstanding tournament in 2000 and hit it on Joe Heskett in the finals.. Its also on one of Coach Smiths technique videos.

    John Smith is the undisputed GOAT...bar NONE!

    We need a great RTC to honor that fact.
