    mgrimm got a reaction from ERBPAC in Attendance Wisconsin/Maryland   
    I will watch the video of the dual when I get home tonight, but I went to the Badger site to see some of the highlights.  The field house is a big box with seating around all 4 sides.  It appears that the cameras were in front of the main section where most of the crowd sits.  Only a few fans sit in the other 3 sections. Unfortunately, that's what you see in the background of the video, giving the incorrect impression that the seats were mainly empty.  My guess is that they had around 2,000 fans since they did a nice job of promoting this locally, and they had 2 of the top local highschool wrestling teams wrestle their dual prior to the Badger dual.  That alone was expected to help draw more fans than usual.

    yeah, I normally attend every Badger home dual and I almost always sit in the middle of the front row closest to the action.  The camera's are setup in front of me on the outside edges of the mat, with the scorer's table across the way, and the 'away' fan section in the background.  The home crowd is never shown.  Damn shame they do it that way.

    Lubeck has 1 more year of eligibility.  If you count him, the Badgers have 6 guys on roster that will have previously qualified.

    My bride and I are bringing my HS coach to Nationals this year... he is 87 and this will no doubt be his last chance for such a trip.
     
    last year after getting home I called him and talked about the tourney. He told me to quit calling him telling him how much fun it was. I thought about it for a couple weeks then decided to call him and said...... hey coach why don't you come along next year, on me. It's going to be really enjoyable having him along. I owe him much.
     
    Going to be rooting for VT

    Rutgers finishes with 20.5 points, outscoring most individual champions. They didn't quite catch Logie though. This is a program on the rise! They return 9 starters (+ Giraldo), have a completely average to below-average recruiting class, and are knocking on the door of the top 10 in this conference! Watch out Purdue!

    This Iowa hate thread has back fired a bit. So many great Hawkeyes listed here. Great wrestlers,husbands,fathers etc. It's a shame a few bad eggs personify an entire Dynasty of great men.

    BREAKING NEWS
     
    EIGHT IOWA STARTERS WERE LOST FOR THE SEASON. 
     
    It was revealed that immediately
    after the match with Missouri the squad was rushed to the hospital.
    Test showed all eight had torn Achilles' tendons from to much back ward pressure
    on the heels.
     
    No real projection for recovery was given.

    Just watched the replay. I stand by what I said about the slam being called on Waters and the unsportsmanlike (should have been flagrant mis) conduct on Gilman.

    I would say he should sit for a match, but personally I don't want to see him not compete at B1Gs.  So yeah, a good stern reprimand will do.  It has to be stern though.

    mgrimm reacted to VakAttack in Delgado's #1 ranking and title chances   
    If Delgado's injury is going to make him a shell of himself for the rest of the season, that gives Iowa and Ohio State a leg up on Minnesota come tournament time.  I don't think either Gilman or Tomasello would beat healthy Delgado, but if he's really donezo, that bumps both guys prospects, and thus team points, up a bit.

    Once Thielke couldn't make 133 I think it was an easy coach's decision to move Taylor to 133 and Thielke to 141.  I don't know if RT beats Thielke, but RT is looking like he would.
