Thoughts: How McDonough lost must be how Chris Perry lost last weekend. Wow on Ramos. He had a small opening for a pin and he took it. Ballweg took a conservative route for the win. Grothus loves the big moves, but he doesn't seem to have the strength to finish them. St. John was solid, but his emotions are a bit of an issue. He needs to learn to control his emotions at times otherwise he's going to get hit with more unsportsmanlike points. Moore looked good, he just needs to finish. It looked like a confidence issue more than anything else. Evans is tough. He wrestled someone as tough as him and got a win. Wow on Lofthouse. He was movin' and groovin'. Where the heck has this Lofthouse been all season? Burak has seems to have plateaued again. He needs to make another step up. He's hitting moves, but not finishing them. Telford wow. He looked good.
96 - Thanks for responding - you should be on staff. I came across the meet toward the end on the BTN so saw about 1/2 of Evans and the rest. First time I've seen them this yr. Is Burak too lanky for the wt class? Don't think he had one take down. I realize he's a freshman so will surely improve. First time I've ever seen Telford, who towered over his opponent. Sure liked how businesslike he was and got the job done. Any idea what Telford weighs? Didn't look too muscular for a heavy but he sure dominated.
I think Burak needs to put on some muscle to be a top contender at 197. Right now he needs some more quickness and some follow-through. He definitely looks better now than he did at the beginning of the season.
I don't know for certain but I think Telford is around 260.
