Micic and Pa tales win titles, Coon loses in 3OT in a match he dominated. All around good showing and everyone but 141 and 149 AQ for NCAAs. 2 more weeks to close the gap

How long until the NCAA finally adds a 216lbs weight class to sync up with International/Olympic wrestling standards?

More and more collegiate wrestlers every year are attempting to represent their country on the international stage, but everyone who is in the 216lbs weight class internationally are at a huge disadvantage. They either have to drastically cut weight every season to drop back down to the NCAA’s 197lbs class or stay at their Olympic competition weight, but wrestle athletes who are potentially 60lbs heavier than them.

Agreed. I thought he was trying to save his energy for the end but he didn’t get the one opportunity he was waiting on. There’s a reason Snyder is the best wrestler on the planet right now.
If there was another weight division we would have three grapplers crowned today.
Excited to see these two meet in the NCAA championship for the rubber match.

Coon match was extremely close. He had a great strategy, but could not get riding time. If he can keep snyder down he wins. Hard to shoot on the olympic champ. I thought he had him on one of snyders attempts. No way snyder can keep coon down. One take down or riding time and coon beats him  every time. I think Coon wins nationals and bloody's up Snyder more in rematch.
