    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.

    Teasdale at Iowa?

    I love this time of year as well because TBar comes on and portrays the views of 2-3 homers on Hawkeye Report as representative of the entire fan base. If you actually read without an agenda, most of the hawkeye fans are talking about 100-115 points next year which MIGHT be good enough to win it with Penn State potentially not having their usual big point scorers. 1. Has anybody predicted Teasdale to place? Most predicted him to not even make the lineup. The closest thing that came to it was speculating IF he can beat out Murin and Renteria, 2 guys unanimously considered to be at least fringe AA threats, then he is also a fringe AA threat. 2. Already addressed this idiocy. 3. Most of the posters on HR have stuck with the general line of "Penn State is the favorite until they lose." Why do you feel the need to do this every 2 weeks? Insecure?

    Read the rules, guys. USAW doesn't provide the platform for its athletes to speak on this (meaning, it doesn't own Twitter). It does, however, provide this platform and it's well within USAW's rights to make rules that users can either abide by or not abide by. If you don't abide by them, talk about it somewhere else. There's a litany of comments in more trafficked platforms than this. I don't work here, but I explained in detail why this policy was enacted - it's because this forum's userbase often lacks the level of restraint and maturity to discuss it without it divulging into absolute crap. I dealt with it for years. Legal matters aren't discussed here because we have some absolutely deplorable fans who have accounts here. They ruined it for everyone years ago. No one's to blame except the fans who can't control themselves. Why does this thread stay? I'm going on the assumption it's about him returning to the lineup. I suspect people will spend more time trying to circumvent the rules, which I will never understand. Pretty sure if the topic stays about competition at heavy, it won't be locked up or tossed, but that's up to you guys.

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    Sometimes your actual grasp of wrestling itself is glaringly BAD. If you stuck to the argument that he simply wouldn't be able to step right back in and win, you would be on solid ground. But, acting like he wasn't a phenom is straight up brainless or simply uneducated. The kid was winning Senior level medals while STILL in High School, beating guys like Safaryan. Non-phenoms DO NOT do that while in High School. Also, you act like winning Junior Nationals multiple times is "hasn't won anything since he was a cadet", while also lumping a Junior World Silver and Bronze into that same category. So Pico wins Cadet Gold in 2013, Junior Silver in 2014, Junior Bronze in 2015 and then loses the 3rd match(best of 3)in the 2016 OLYMPIC Trial Finals 4-4 to a guy that would go on to take 5th, ALL while being a teenager and he was just your garden variety, non phenom wrestler????? The ONLY reason you are even able to slightly get away with that is because he left the sport right after that to pursue MMA. But, make no mistake, what he had done at that age level, ABSOLUTELY qualifies as a P H E N O M................................ The funny thing is I was never really even a fan of Pico, but ignoring the facts due to straight up PSU-Retherford bias, is straight up WEAK SAUCE...........................

    Pico TKO a few minutes ago

    QWow! We have gone round and round on this topic saying nothing. Lets try this: 1. NOBODY is saying Pico was not an elite wrestler. He was extremely good. Emphasis "was" 2. To continue to wrestle at an elite level you MUST continually train/compete IN WRESTLING year after year. 3. If Pico would have kept wrestling he FOR SURE would have had a shot to be on our US team every year. 4. If he comes back to wrestling exclusively (While MMA does involve some wrestling it is not the same as being a wrestler and only a wrestler), he has every chance to become a member of our national team, make world teams and win medals. 5. There is NO WAY he could walk out of the MMA gym, step onto a wrestling match and pick up right where he left off. NONE! 6. If he keeps getting knocked out, he may not have a choice as to his future. 7. I hope he comes back to wrestling.

    Since the dust has settled, I've come to believe that some USA Wrestling higher-up in the challenge jury decided to uphold the takedown to avoid the appearance of another Yianni/Zain situation. In Gilman/Fix, the officiating crew followed three-man-mechanics properly, the IOWA staff threw the brick relatively quickly after the points went up, and the call was correct, but they denied the challenge because upholding it would have changed the winner with little to no time for the second week in a row.

    also like to see Moore get a title to complete the 1-4 placings set. Has to be a fairly small group that has done that. I know Abe and Larkin did it getting one place better each season 4th as freshman on up to champs as seniors. Jim Martin went 4-2-1-3. sure some more recent than those that I am forgetting right this sec but again guessing a fairly small group overall that has those unique placings. or just being top 4 for 4 years, great stuff and a lot of the guys on your list can make that happen.

    TBar carries himself as if every fan of every other team would change their allegiance to PSU if they were only smart enough. Its pretty smug and obnoxious.

    When you made that rule social media wasn’t what it is today, so coaches and athletes regularly checked themat and flipped out when issues were discussed that they did not like. There was pressure to police the forum (hence your 5 AM calls and threatened lawsuits). Now these types of discussions are ubiquitous on Facebook/Twitter and themat is an afterthought to the coaches/athletes. Yet we still have this rule of absolute censorship, which was good at the time you created it, but has now become archaic and excessive. Delete the posts that cross the line and ban the users who repeatedly cross the line. Absolute censorship is the wrong policy from a governing body (although god course it’s legal and they “have the right”).

    I'd like to see Murin up at 149 next year (assuming some combination of Teasdale/Renteria/Desanto doesn't leave them with a hole at 141) if for no other reason than he's their long term plan there after Lugo graduates. I think people, myself included, may have underestimated how much he was cutting last year and how much it affected him. I think the cut mitigated a lot of his power. Last summer, at 143.5 with night before weigh ins, he looked really big and strong, to the point where he actually muscled a bigger Sammy Sasso around quite a bit with his snaps. As the season wore on, he didn't have that same juice in his snaps and without it, he wasn't able to move guys as well, which his offense depended on. For some perspective, he definitely has the frame to be a big 149. He's listed at 5'8, 3 inches taller than Pat Lugo and right in the average range for a 149.

    Barry Davis was a 2 time NCAA champ after the '83 season. He then took a RS and competed at the '84 Olympics winning a silver. Came back to get his 3rd NCAA title in '85.

    How good is Teasdale advertised? who says he's not walking on. I'm not saying he is but everything about teasdale is weird. Coincidentally his name autocorrects to "tradable".
