    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.

    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.

    Fix and Gilman are throwing hard hands. Good thing Pico isn't wrestling these guys, he'd be knocked out by now.

    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?

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

    Thomas Gilman History

    I am not a fan of Gilman, and I think that the word "Jap" shouldn't be used (clearly taken as offensive by many, probably most of the people it refers to), but I don't see this as any particular evidence of his being a bad guy. He did not seem to have any bad intent; my recollection of the tape was that he was using the term in a descriptive way, not as an intended slur -- and in fact to the extent that his statement was judgmental, he was admiring of the wrestler in question. It's not a term that is as well understood to be as offensive as some others we all have heard, as evidenced by some of the posts here, so it's believable he didn't know it was a problem. And I believe he apologized when informed that many find the term offensive. Unlike other things mentioned near the top of this thread which I could have done without seeing from him, this one doesn't seem like he knew or definitely should have known better. Seems like a complicated guy, not my cup of tea, but I won't pile on him for that one. He wrestled with a lot of heart and skill today, just got beat by a guy who was a little bit better.

    Endless laces and turns stink. Makes the sport less interesting rather than more.

    Perhaps he's made being a world class athlete more of a priority than worrying about offending your delicate sensibilities?

    Racial slurs? Are you referring to “the Jap” comment. I don’t think that was meant as a racial slur. If it was 1944, maybe, but I think it was more referring to the person’s place of origin. Only say this because saying because without context he is being painted to be a racist.

    Paulson/Hall. The most exciting and suspensful match I've seen

    It’s not all that confusing. Freestyle has nothing to do with control and the criteria that leads to no OT is one of the best things about the sport. It keeps the match entertaining until the end of the match.
