Finals of the Olympic Team Trials now starting on NBCSN. Best two-of-three. Marquee matchup has Burroughs 🆚 Dake at 74kg.

NBCSN refusing to show a double-box so we can see the most marketable of the 18 winners, Gable Steveson at HWT, who just won by tech fall.

Another missed opportunity by the Peacock Network to pump their pay-per-view Olympics coverage.

Dake and Burroughs — Dake wins 3-0 in first of three. NBCSN leaves two matches going while going to break.

Expect to miss most of the great parts of the Olympics this summer unless you’re willing to pay Peacock Network.

Tonight, NBC$N has refused to show a multi-screen and won’t show you every match from start to finish.

Big Ten wrestling double dual tonight on the Big Ten channel. Michigan and Ohio State at 4:00 your time. Michigan moves up to #2/#3 with Iowa after Iowa’s Spencer Lee goes down at 125 with a knee.

Iowa crowd gives Minnesota HWT Gable Steveson a standing ovation in that dual, recognizing him winning the Olympics. College wrestling is the only real competition he can get. He’s on in the 2nd dual.

Steveson can still wrestle collegiately after signing a contract with WWE?
I'm surprised that the NIL rules allow this.
Not saying it's wrong........ I'm just surprised.
I wonder if he can defend his gold medal in 2024?

Yes on NIL for Gable. He’s a great draw for the future. The 2024 Olympics aren’t that far away, after the 4-24 total eclipse along an Indy to Cleveland line.

Gable’s getting seven minutes of work in most times out. It remains to be seen how much our high school wrestling got hurt compared to right-wing states.

Big MMA card this weekend. There’s certainly a great link between college wrestling and MMA, as we see with Olympic HWT champ Steveson (MIN) and his NIL.

#9 Ohio State hosting #2 or #3 Iowa atm on the BIG Network. Penn State overwhelmed #3 or #2 Michigan earlier. The next two months are folk-style titles in high school and college.
