I hear “Hotcake” Harold Sorenson will travel form Wisconsin to challenge the living legend James “Flapjack” Flanders for the Midwest Pancake Eating Crown.  As the current title holder Flanders gets to choose flavor of syrup and I’m hearing rumors of Butter Pecan in an attempt to throw Sorenson off his game.  This is gonna be on epic eat-off.

If you’re referring to russelburg, I don’t see him beating noehre or dickens.

Maybe not, but I'd still like to see him try.

Rusellburg lost to Dickens at the Mater Dei Classic and Noehre at the Wabash World Championship Duals this spring.

Knew about MD. Wondered who he lost to at those duals. Remembered he lost 1 there.

Dang it. You are right. Great match with Brock. Did Brock finish 4th at state? I just watched those 2 matches on track. Regardless, he is exciting to watch.

Here’s a question...  What’s more difficult to win, State or IHPO?

Last year 7 of the 2019 state champions participated
Winning IHPO titles were
Mendez, Moran, Rodgers, Allred, and Brewer

Others
Slivka got 4th and Littell lost to Mendez

In 2017 5 of the champs participated and only Brayton Lee won a title.
Asa Garcia was 2nd behind Travis Ford-Melton
Kris Rumph was 4th
Jordan Slivka was top 6 losing in the semi-finals
Jacob Moran was top 6 losing to Mendez in the quarters

IHPO because you win 1 match at state and place..A lot of really good wrestlers don't even place at IHPO.. Both are unbelievable feathers in 1s cap and your boy won both.. ...but I see where that's not always true with Carson winning IHPO and not placing at state his jr. year.
