    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.

    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.

    Flying-Tiger got a reaction from BadgerMon in Favorite weight class at a past NCAA tourney   
    Saying some of those guys were unproven at the time is a fair statement but this is about a person's favorite bracket and I would vote 149 in 2008 as well. I was pretty happy with how Bubba J. performed for Penn State back then, defeating O'Connor and Caldwell back to back to get to the finals and then giving Metcalf a tuff match. Brent had to defeat Palmer and Burroughs to make the finals, not exactly an easy path either.
     
    EDIT: Looking back at the bracket, Bubba had to beat Saddoris and Lang just to get to the quarters so he ended up defeating a current/future AA in every round up to the finals.
     
    Really was a great field:

    Flying-Tiger got a reaction from BigTenFanboy in Desanto vs RBY 2019 - will it be closer?   
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, I think the cyclones will likely claim state superiority within 3 more years. 
    The hawks will probably continue to land more blue chip recruits than dresser but his recruiting is quickly closing the gap. Dresser built VT into a top 10 team built around a coupe studs but his knack is development. He took fringe guys like Yates and turned them into multi time AA’s. 
    Every team dresser coached was successful. He landed at Grundy high school and elevated a small successful coal mining town’s team into a powerhouse. Then he took over Christiansburg high school which was a sub par team and went on to win 10 or so state titles under leadership plus they rose to around a top 10 national ranking. 
    Then brands left VT in the dumps. KD comes in and they go from almost dead last at the NCAAs to getting a team trophy in about 10 years. 
    I too wouldn’t be surprised if the brands boys are canned really soon and KD slides right into his alma mater as the new HC. With his track record, who wouldn’t want him at the helm of the hawks except the orange boys?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Flying-Tiger got a reaction from gromit in I think a lot of guys will take an Olympic Redshirt   
    With Fix making the World team this year and potentially taking an Olympic Redshirt next year, it would really put some pressure on Spencer Lee to redshirt as well. Seems like a rather big advantage to let your main competitor get all this experience while your focus is on folk and college classes. Obviously that would be a huge hit to Iowa's championship chances so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
