  1. None of that changes the fact Marinelli was #3 overall recruit that has drastically underperformed at NCAAs.
  2. Interesting subject. I recall reading somewhere that natural aerobic capacity starts to decline at 18-19! For what it's worth, took the following from a medical study article: aerobic capacity declined 3% to 6% each decade in the 20s and 30s.
  3. Tommy is going to milk every last drop out of Spencer Lee. He knows without him, Iowa would be slipping further and further into obscurity and could care less about the injuries and burnout that were apparent in Lee's interview.
  4. Shame the refs didn't get the 2 back points correct so none of this would of mattered. Hidlay ran for 6:30 minutes and deserved to lose.
  5. Yea, and the ref swallowed his whistle during Gross' "regular stalling" a few times as well.
  6. Can't let the close Iowa match score fool you, the Hawks have a much bigger advantage in a tournament setting. They would have to lose DeSanto and another high scorer for PSU to have a chance. A healthy Cassar and Berge and I'd be right there with you.
  7. You can actually hear the ref during the match explaining to Bono why it wasn't stalling. Clearly says "hands weren't locked"
  8. It's an idiotic statement, like saying why aren't coaches teaching how to stop Spencer Lee's Tilt? Starting to feel like 08-10 around here; brace yourself cause it's only going to get worse.
  9. I think the light schedule is tied to the fact it's an Olympic year. May have kept a few guys in the lineup that otherwise would of took a redshirt.
  10. What could be better for his training than traveling to face one of only a few guys that could give him a match. You Realize the Olympic Trials are not in Carver, right?
  11. Yes, just not on his home mat where his chances are better.
  12. Has a coach ever ducked so blatantly like Brands does with Lee.
  13. I think TBar knew that already, lol.
  14. MSU has a hard time dealing in facts and prefers to wallow in half truths and misleading statistics. Lee did in fact say that which does raise the question of what limitations Brands is putting on him in regard to international competition. Not redshirting flys in the face of Lee's own stated goals and puts him at a disadvantage at OTTs next year.
  15. Iowa will be too strong over the next two years however they will have a drop off in 2022 and that's the year ISU may pass them. If Iowa doesn't win a championship in the next two years with the talent they have, Brands may in fact get fired.
  16. He knows that and is just being obtuse since it's a losing argument if you only look at what convictions guys have had and still been allowed to wrestle.
  17. Numerous team penalty points; behavior was so bad your coaches had to run on the mat more then once to control DeSanto. Yea that's quite positive. Well at least he didn't pull a gun during a match, I guess that is a success story by Iowa standards.
  18. One key difference is that the gun incident is recent while Long was back in 2011. Another key difference is that the shooting is just one of many incidents by Iowa wrestlers since 2011. Why don't we compare the programs since Long? Iowa has quite the rap sheet, much more extensive than PSU or any other program. This is indisputable, or shall I make a list?
  19. And there is that duplicity. When Cael brought Long in, it was Cael treating him as expendable, never mind he knew the family and Andrew from when he was a child, yet with Brands bringing in Teasdale, who has a lot of serious issues, arguably more serious than Long, he is making an effort to rehabilitate him, lol. How can you not realize how ridiculous you sound.
  20. Long didn't wrestle for PSU after the rape charge so comparing it to Marion riding a moped drunk is disingenuous and shows you really can't refute what I said. You want to call someone out for that, look for a coach back in Iowa. The rap sheet under Brands is long and growing with almost no discipline (or intervention as you call it) for his wrestlers, so yes it is an excellent way to refute the duplicitous Iowa fans that continue to bring up a guy that hasn't wrestled for PSU since 2011. Maybe if Brands took his wrestlers (and coach's) previous gun charges more serious, he wouldn't of had to deal with one of his guys getting shot by a teammate. You don't have the higher ground here, it's not even close at this point. Iowa has annual off the mat issues with their wrestlers and has become a destination for transfers of guys with baggage in a desperate attempt to keep up with PSU and tOSU. You can say Andrew Long until you are blue in the face, isn't going to change that.
  21. Iowa fans at it again, thinking they have the high ground in these discussions. Lets see, you just had a guy shoot a teammate and he was wrestling the the first semester, competing for a starting spot. DeSanto tried to break another guys arm, was kicked off his former team for his conduct and was immediately inserted into the lineup; how many penalty points did he have this past season? How about the guy that plead guilty to theft and was in the starting lineup opening day for that big outdoor event against OSU? ...and of course, an oldie but goodie, Montell Marion's permanent suspension that lasted one semester, the same amount of time Long sat out. Is that enough?? Or should we get into all of Iowa's DUIs, Public Drunkenness, Disorderly Conducts and Gun Charges that didn't result in a single suspension.
  22. Agree, Cox is a great wrestler but I question wether he can maintain that level at 86kg under the current weight-in rules. Taylor now fits that weight very well and has a non stop motor so he will be a bigger challenge then last time. No matter what ultimately happens, it's a shame that one of Cox, Taylor or Snyder will not be able to compete in the Olympics.
  23. Lots of low post count guys appearing and defending Lee. Looks like the hawk fans are coming out from a long hibernation.
