  1. But it didn't, and it was still an awesome dual.
  2. Duck & cover, eh Tbar? This wasn't created by a Hawkeye Report conspiracy. They don't care that much. They might even agree with you. This was created by the money thrown at athletes to circumvent the limitations of NCAA rules. That YOUR team gets mentioned is mostly because they're the top dog, but several teams will probably get caught up in this if the NCAA cares to take notice.
  3. LOL. Yeah, I thought it was funny, too. Most of these guys take themselves sooo seriously. It was fun to see Sammy lighten up a bit. Only the self-righteous and the defensive homers will have a problem with it, and I see that they've come out again, on cue. Figures.
  4. What the heck is going on with Northwestern Wrestling? They lose assitants, wrestlers, and now the head coach? Something smells very fishy in the way this was handled.
  5. Please spare us the sermon on proper leadership, when you can't demonstrate the respect you find lacking in anyone from Iowa. Gilman is just another guy who won and then lost. Gilman said said that Moisy must be tough, because he's in the semis. Good enough. The better wrestler won, and congrats to Zeke. All this thread does is reveal the hatred and prejudice of some of you. I feel sorry for you.
  6. JB, I saw Foxcatcher a couple of nights ago. Although I liked it, I really wouldn't call it a wrestling movie. I thought that Mark Ruffalo was awesome as Dave Schultz. Vanessa Regrave was great as DuPont's mother ("Wrestling is a low sport...") Yes, Steve Carell was good as John DuPont, but he was so strange and detached that it was a role that almost had no shape. In retrospect, it's amazing what poor mental health gets tolerated when a person has influence. It's also amazing how badly money can distort a sport. I think its great when some generous folks give big money to wrestling, but I can also see how easy it is for the sport to get distorted by a screwjob like DuPont.
  7. Totally disagree about gambling. This is misguided, and will lead to the corruption seen in all other major sports. Bad idea. Win or lose, major gambling is for low-life.
  8. ASU Sunshine? Check Beautiful women? Check Beach? Well they've got sand. World-class education? Oops.
