The interview the other day with Braxton was good. His reference to Gable S and what he is looking for is exciting. Only part I questioned was the  verbs (think I have that right, I don't know English well at all) he used on the different guys ion the room.

So the field as a whole made the second period!  That is about as dominant as you can be.

Amos is really good and will be a great addition to the Badgers. Let's not get to wild over the Greco results. He beat a couple of high school kids and one is an old sophomore. With his past results he is certainly very good without a doubt. Just he was several levels above anyone in the field and he should be also.

Shouldn’t read too much into him teching the guy who beat the NCAA 197 runner up either? 
If you’re an 18 year old high school sophomore I somehow feel like you’re not allowed to use your grade level as a crutch.

17 year old sophomore or a 2003 birthday. He is really good though. He hasn't had the training like Amos has at this point. Like I said Amos is going to be good for sure, I just said let's not go wild. Amos should have and did dominate the bracket. I would have loved to see him in the senior level. He may have won that!

What is the benefit to Amos to wrestle in the senior level this weekend? Winning yesterday, he gets to compete in Russia against the best in the world. I'd think this competition is more important to his development then wrestling against the senior field yesterday.

Keep drinking your kool-aid from your half empty glass with dad 2 5 and the rest of us will continue to support whats happening with the program.

Looks like Joey Zargo lost a tough one 6-5 to a Northwestern Wrestler.  These matches are super valuable to his development in my opinion.

I came in from working outside and Ethan Rotondo is in the senior 57KG Finals.  Great to see him having some success.  I think he has come a long way since Gross came to the room along with Barnett and Burwick.

Hamiti tough loss 4-3 to Facundo.  Hamiti is right there with the best.  Very excited to see him next year.

I believe Facundo is bigger than Hamiti right now. Good to see he is right there with him, even though he lost.

Hamiti also had a takedown in folk style but couldn’t get Facundos knee down in quad pod position. Even in a loss that was a good showing for Hamiti.

Flo just posted this:

Facundo vs. Hamiti could easily be the match of the tournament. The next session is starting now with Junior Quarters kicking off shortly after.

Braxton Amos in the Junior National 97KG freestyle finals!  He has not been scored upon in Greco or Freestyle.  He has outscored his opponents 77-0 over both styles. 

Braxton Amos is really good  ;D

Ethan Rotondo drops a tough 8-6 decision in the Senior freestyle 57KG finals against an NCAA round of 12 Jakob Camacho from NC State who was ranked #9 at the end of last season.  He has come a LONG way.  Great job Ethan.

Yes I understand the world thing vs senior level. Reread my post please. I should have said Amos is a man among boys at the junior level. I do think he is good enough to win at the senior level and has proven that. I also pointed out how completely dominated the field as he should have done. My glass is half full! Just pointing out some very blatant facts. I dont want to over hype Amos or jinks him. I hope he out does what he is projected to do. So please matrat, reread and dont draw an assumption that I dont want to support what is going on in Badger land. Had a great day today also.

I know how to read thanks. My issue with your post is the glass half empty attitude. We are talking about 18 year old young adults. Lets build them up instead of putting down their accomplishments (which you and the rest of us could never manage to accomplish).

What did I put down? I think Amos is older than 18 also but i dont know. What he is doing is incredible. Winning last chance, going to trials and doing incredible also. I think he is good enough that he could have won seniors as a senior level. Along the lines of what Kyle synder, Spencer Leegers, gable steveson and kirkvielt have done in the past moved up a age group and dominated. I was hoping to see Amos in that rare air of being that good. Was is that in your eyes half empty glass? Dang I was just pointing out what even some writers said talking about the tournament also said, some really good high schoolers in a bracket that Amos will dominate. I guess those writers are also glass empty types and are bringing down the kids also just like what you say i am doing. I certainly wish the best for the badgers and all the current Badgers. But according to guys like you I cannt be honest while supporting them, guess I better find a team that doesnt get so hind end hurt if something not positive is said. Remember it takes guys like us kn the forum to help give out support so these athletes can do things we can never do!

Amos could have beaten Austin Schafer and won Seniors this weekend. I still agree with him doing Juniors because I do not believe he will make the team when they wrestle the Senior WTT and now he gets an opportunity to wrestle for a Junior WTT in both styles. He has really impressed me of late and I am looking forward to him competing in the red and white next year.
