    NCAA approves shorts

    Have you never talked to middle school kids? That’s their number one complaint. It’s laughable how ignorant you are.

    The system is set up to favor guys who have already proven to be the best in the world. Dake was on the wrong side of that system for years and complained about it being unfair. Now he’s taking advantage of being a defending world champion and the advantages that come with that.

    The ultimate alpha move here is for Ringer to enter the tournament and beat him.

    Seriously. I haven't seen this level of censorship on the boards since we bought an olympic spot for "He Who Shall Not Be Named." I get setting rules for the level of discourse allowed. But to just ban an entire topic from discussion that is currently the #1 piece of news in wrestling is ludicrous. Moderate the topic and delete the posts that cross the line-don't delete the threads.

    Teasdale at Iowa?

    Every fan base, including PSU, does that. In fact, I think every fan base in every sport does that. You haven't stumbled on something unique here. There are 3-4 posters on there that are always overly optimistic about improvement and such, but you like to pretend that's indicative of the entire fan base. Simply not the case. Most Iowa fans have very realistic expectations for their team. You also see PSU fans do this. For example, early last season a few were speculating that Nick Lee had closed the gap with Yianni and that Teasdale would be an AA threat at 125. There was also a lot of talk about Rasheed being able to beat Martin. Obviously, none of those things came to pass, but the conversations themselves weren't stupid or anything. They're the whole purpose of message boards. The difference between you and me is that I don't act smug and self-righteous about it as if I don't ever engage in homer reasoning.

    Zain - Yanni outcome?

    I really dont see how anyone is accepting of the officiating or outcome of that match. Its like if the Chiefs were running out the clock against the Patriots in the 4th quarter up by 6 and the Pats challenged a call that overturned a Chiefs touchdown from the 3rd quarter, winning them the game. In no other sport would this be acceptable, and yet here we are, with nobody in any position of power admitting that something is wrong. The second match should be re-wrestled, but that's not going to happen. Zane will be our representative. A bunch of imbeciles will continue to run and officiate this sport.

    Singlets look ridiculous and any functional advantage they have are negligible (otherwise MMA guys would wear them). Other than getting pants-ed, there's no downside to shorts and this is a move in the right direction. Hopefully, all teams will follow suit.

    If we do a cost benefit analysis of this, we are sacrificing nothing by making this change. It will have zero effect in the way matches play out. Even if it only gets a few more kids out every year or results in a more positive appearance to a handful of outsiders and casual fans, wouldnt it be worth it?

    Cox scored on a pass-by ankle pick, and then chain wrestled taking a double leg shot and then throwing Bo by for the takedown. Seriously, have you even watched the matches?

    the most important thing people need to remember about IQ is that I have the highest possible number.

    Gable must have got the wrong impression when his coaches told him to "bring his hips to the party." I'll see myself out.

    I think we've figured out the answer. We'll ditch the singlet and teams will wear compression shirts and compression shorts, but to prevent the shirt from riding up, the shorts will be attached to the shirt so they're one article of clothing.

    I created this rule back when I operated the boards. Why? Because too many times, people cannot act in a civilized manner with things like this. There was a time where I spent more time policing this board than doing my actual job while at USA Wrestling. What happened? I got heated calls from coaches, athletes, parents and even attorneys about the content on this message board. This, along with feedback from the staff at USAW during my tenure (2009-2012), was used to create this rule. So what happened was members of this very board weren't mature enough to have that conversation. It was repeated time and time and time again. Adults can't handle themselves like adults, then the rules of this board were created to prevent adults from acting like children. People seem to have short memories. Anytime a Hawkeye had an issue - the haters flocked. There were also instances with Cowboys, Nittany Lions and other athletes from high profile programs. You have the right do discuss these things. USAW doesn't have to provide you that right on their messageboards. There's plenty of other places for people to spew their venom - this rule was created so that this was not one of them. The rule was created because some people aren't responsible enough to have civil discussions. I don't work there anymore, but the rule has been in place and was put into place because of constant and repeated vitriol in situations regarding college athletes. You want to fight about it? Go to Twitter, Facebook or the comments section of newspaper websites. That's why the rule was put into place and I'm glad USAW is sticking to it. If you don't remember anything like this before, you have a short memory.

    I don't know about you, but I think that was one of the greatest lines in wrestling broadcast history. There will always and forever be the "illegal fist to the back."
