    I think we need some banhammers to come down on the forums.  Or I need to start blocking people.  Forums are practically unreadable because of 3-4 people

    Maybe you could just ignore him? I know, it’s not a good look for someone that likes to stand their ground but you almost make this board unreadable because it happens on almost every thread. I’m not trying to save face, it’s apparent that you do need to find a new hobby rather than respond to every quip or insult he throws at you.

    Fix beats Bresser 2-1 on RT and never touched a leg. Bresser was in deep 3 times but fix was able to defend. Very good win for Daton, but maybe that will help temper the "try to make him into the lineup as a true frosh" crowd. I wouldn't be shocked Id piccinni beats him in the room

    Their customer service is absolutely atrocious. I've contacted them numerous times about things and never received a response.
     
    It's a company that exists primarily because there is no viable alternative. If you want to watch wrestling you don't really have a choice but to pay flo, no matter how awful interacting with them is. It's the Comcast of sports coverage

    You seem to be getting what he is saying confused. He is not arguing Iowa over penn state, just that he feels iowa will be better then tosu and osu, and he feels Iowa is more likely to win then those other schools. The fact that someone is saying that a school "could" win it in the next four years, and your taking a it as a shot at psu, is really quite sad.

    If anything that logic bolsters Brands considerably.  I am sorry, but anyone that compares Iowa's trajectory under Zalesky vs. Brands only looks at raw numbers without actually paying attention to the details.
     
    Zalesky inherited a powerhouse when he took over for Gable. Hell, Iowa scored 170 the year before.  Once the Gable recruits were gone it was obvious that Iowa wasn't the same.  This was especially apparent in duals as Illinois pounded them the last 2 years and they were taking losses to the likes of MSU and Northwestern.
     
    Brands, on the other hand, KNOWS how important duals are to the Iowa image, especially to his own fanbase.  He has made sure his teams have been ultra competitive in duals even beating PSU 2 of the years they won and tOSU the year they won. 
     
    Also, Zalesky didn't have to deal with both sleeping giants being woken up.  PSU and tOSU have always had off the charts potential and both finally found the right Head Coaches to get it going.  While Zalesky was coaching Iowa was the de facto #1.  During Brands time this changed under no fault of his own.  Everyone knew that if PSU kept most of the top talent in state they would be juggernauts.  The same can be said with tOSU and in state talent.  As a result the Iowa image needed to be changed and Brands has done a solid job making it so.

    I am supposed to be a Sanderson detractor and yet I will immediately say that Sanderson is the #1 Head Coach in DI wrestling.  But, just because you are the best doesn't mean you are the absolute best in every category.  Many think Snyder is the best DI wrestler.  But, is he the best mat wrestler?  He is the best because he is phenomenal on his feet and good enough on the mat for it to not hurt him.  Sanderson is the best because what he is the best at, no one is even close. 
     
    His recruiting is off the charts and I don't see how anyone can deny that it is the most important aspect in the current landscape.  But, he is still really good at everything else.  He sells his program and RTC so well that the funding is off the charts.  He has developed a fan base that can compete with Iowa's, which is incredibly hard to do considering Hawkeye sports are sort of their defacto professional sports team.  He has created a coaching staff to which only a handful of teams can even remotely compare.
     
    Still, it isn't enough to just recruit talent.  Talented or not, adjusting to DI is no joke and many of his guys haven't just adjusted, they have thrived.  He may not have a Daniel Dennis, but he does have a Matt Brown and he did have Varner(KJ could maybe garner about 2% of the credit) and Reader at ISU before moving to PSU.  What truly separates him is his top talent almost always have ridiculous success.  Wright, Ruth, Molinaro(not his recruits, but definitely proof of development), Taylor, Megaludis, Retherford, Nolf, Joseph, Hall and Nickal just puts too much data on his side to ignore.
     
    Finally, I don't think he is the best solely because of team results.  If a few things broke the right way Minnesota and OkState could have swiped a couple of titles from him.  Cornell could have maybe knocked them off the 1st year.  Still, he has done so many other things well that only Koll, Ryan, Smith and Brands could compete in multiple categories and maybe guys like Flynn and Borelli have a case to match development.  Simply put, he is the best because he is REALLY GOOD at every aspect!

    It's worth noting that the Myles Martin that won NCAA's in 2016 was a true freshman.  The bracket broke perfectly, and the rest is history. 
     
    He didn't regress in 2017.  He was improved materially in every position.  He needed time to grow into the weight, but his placement was representative of the Myles we saw during the regular season. 
     
    This year, it appears he's taken another step.  Is he on a steeper trajectory than Nickal? I think so. The question is whether he's eclipsed him yet.
