Rasheed's loss was really weird to watch. Is it possible his leg was bothering him?
"Maybe I'm just a dumb defensive coach"
I think it's possible that Rasheed isn't fully healthy, even still I think he just lost concentration and gave Ness the opening he took advantage of. The word was Rasheed got banged up again in his win over Venz at the Big Ten Tournament, but no idea how healthy (or not) he is for today. Hopefully he can get back on track because the team can separate themselves a lot today, and having Rasheed get bonus on the backside would be very helpful.
No doubt. I had been looking forward to some other matches today, but now my focus is going to be squarely on Rasheed if I can get away from work.
Not surprised about Rasheed, he does seem to be hindered, especially conditioning. He certainly didn't benefit from not wrestling much the second half of the year. If anyone noticed, he has been in some precarious exposed positions but no one was good enough to take advantage of it, the NC kid did. He could still make some real noise in the wrestlebacks if he is in the right mindset. Rasheed just lost again by giving up 2 back points in the neutral position in the last 10 seconds of a 2-2 match. Big disappointment!!
