Hes still not registered on Trackwrestling.com whats the deal? when is the dead line? does he have to register?
We'll see (I hope) but to insinuate that Max Askren is ANYWHERE near Sanderson is unrealistic and irresponsible. Cael is not 45 he is 31 he will tear Askren apart. Herbert has shown that if you stop his single leg he is stagnant on offense. NOONE at this weight has the offense Cael does. You forget who this man is. Even if he has 1/2 the offense he had in 2004 he has twice what anyone else in the weight has to offer. Oh and the gas tank comments??? When are you morons going to realize that a gastank is really not that important in this era of freestyle. Simply not that big of a factor when you wrestle for 2 minutes sit for 30-45 seconds and breath and then wrestle for 2 more minutes. Technical flurries and position is the key. Cael wins with a grin.
I thought people were just being obnoxious thus my sarcastic post. If people don't actually think Cael is a heavy favorite at this weight then they haven't been paying attention. He has consistently beaten world team members Les Sigman and Jake Varner in simulation matches, and Varner is arguably top 5 in the world right now up a weight class. Cael easily teched the 3rd place finisher at US Open up a weight class, Max Askren is a freestyle novice who is not in the same league. Herbert can hopefully give him a competitive and exciting match if he wrestles like he did at '09 Worlds, but he's been very inconsistent since then.
...Are you suggesting I used a thesaurus for the word defy?? You sir bring shame to Jeff Bridges, The Big Lebowski and true dudes the world over. Either of you care to actually contribute something about Cael or just yell empty insults like adolescents?
nobody really thoughttt taylor would lose to jenkins and alot of people thought the silver medalist herbert would beat Max so i think its fair to say Max will a shot a beating cael even tho Cael is the fosure favorite hear but im taking Max (if he can get threw the field) in a huge upset over Cael
Haha, must be low-grade censorship. I have successfully typed circ*mstance multiple times, I defy anyone to type it without an asterisk. In order to keep this post relevant, one of the (many) things that separates Cael from this pack of American wrestlers is his incredible footwork. Cael is constantly in motion, but none of it is excess, it's to keep his opponent responding to his movement so that he can dictate the pace of the match. A 2x World champ like Sajidov maintained such phenomenal positioning that he still managed to avoid Cael's trademark ankle pick - that's an anomalous case. The Northeast Regionals didn't have any notable competition, but it did show that his footwork is just as active if not more so than back in 2004.
I spelled out cirstance, not sure why it showed up without the "um". PS, don't knock smoking crack until you try it.
After Max Askren techs Cael 6-0,7-0 without trying then all you Cael Sanderson fans can eat turds!!!!!! In the interest of full disclosure, I'm being 100% sarcastic and I'm sure the others are just trying to get your goad with the absurd proposition that freestyle novice Askren beats Cael let alone easily. Vehemently defending Cael's abilities in this cirstance makes you look just about as dumb as them.
I think some of the PSU faithful need to be objective here regarding the match-up with Max Askren. Cael beats Varner in simulation matches who up a weight class is arguably top 5 in the world which means that he's one of the favorites for a gold medal at 84kg. Assuming he cuts the weight effectively and his body can still take the grind of several matches in a day then he should be a heavy favorite against Herbert, Hrovat, etc who I just don't think match up well against him. However, Max Askren is the X-factor, and if he wrestles Cael then if we're being objective Cael has a 0% chance of victory. Max Askren will beat Cael Sanderson, and it won't be close. As Al Gore would say, I'm super serial.
96kg was only for regionals largely because of Varner, so he has been gradually bringing his weight down and will be competing at 84kg. Just so you all know Jason Bryant said after this Flo announcement came out that he still has yet to receive official confirmation - they have been hearing mixed things from various people in-the-know. At this point, it certainly seems like he'll definitely be at World Team Trials, but Cael is keeping it as close to the chest as possible.
Al Bevilacqua is a former national team coach who founded Beat the Streets. Not sure what his current official position is, but if he indeed confirmed that Cael will compete then I have no doubt it's legitimate.
Flowrestling has received word from Al Bevilacqua that Cael Sanderson will be competing in the World Team Trials on June 10, 11. This will be the second time Cael has competed since he won a gold medal in the 2004 Olympic Games. He wrestled at the Northeast Regional and won convincingly and was of course head coach of the NCAA championship team Penn State.
How do you think he will do in the trials and if he wins how to you think he will fare against the international competition?
