    TarpHawk reacted to qc8223 in Teasdale at Iowa?   
    I love this time of year as well because TBar comes on and portrays the views of 2-3 homers on Hawkeye Report as representative of the entire fan base. If you actually read without an agenda, most of the hawkeye fans are talking about 100-115 points next year which MIGHT be good enough to win it with Penn State potentially not having their usual big point scorers.
    1. Has anybody predicted Teasdale to place? Most predicted him to not even make the lineup. The closest thing that came to it was speculating IF he can beat out Murin and Renteria, 2 guys unanimously considered to be at least fringe AA threats, then he is also a fringe AA threat.
    2. Already addressed this idiocy.
    3. Most of the posters on HR have stuck with the general line of "Penn State is the favorite until they lose."
    Why do you feel the need to do this every 2 weeks? Insecure?

    I love this time of year on Hawkeye Report. The time of year where:
    1. Almost anyone can be an All American at almost any weight class within 2 weight classes in either direction to where they have previously wrestled.
    2. 150 pts becomes possible.
    3. For sure they are gonna beat Penn State.

    I'd like to see Murin up at 149 next year (assuming some combination of Teasdale/Renteria/Desanto doesn't leave them with a hole at 141) if for no other reason than he's their long term plan there after Lugo graduates. 
    I think people, myself included, may have underestimated how much he was cutting last year and how much it affected him. I think the cut mitigated a lot of his power. Last summer, at 143.5 with night before weigh ins, he looked really big and strong, to the point where he actually muscled a bigger Sammy Sasso around quite a bit with his snaps. As the season wore on, he didn't have that same juice in his snaps and without it, he wasn't able to move guys as well, which his offense depended on. 
    For some perspective, he definitely has the frame to be a big 149. He's listed at 5'8, 3 inches taller than Pat Lugo and right in the average range for a 149.

    Cejudo came back and almost did it. Pico was on that level in freestyle. He truly was. He just saw money and fame at too young of an age and chased, what looks to be, the wrong sport for it. 
    With the way funding has drastically improved for our top freestyle guys, he could have made a healthy sum by now without taking devastating knees to the face.   At 4-3, his chances at a big payday are slipping away quickly. 
    If he can make 65kg I would LOVE to see him come back and make a run at it. As good as the US has been, we just haven’t found a guy that can medal at that weight. He is young enough. Maybe he can refocus and get it done. 
    With all that said, I am truly shocked he hasn’t lived up to the MMA hype. Every indication was that he had all the tools necessary to be super successful.   He has a big decision to make and he needs to make it soon!

    Tarpley here. I'm not KMF, but thanks for thinking of me.
     
    I also suspected Alger or Lewboo. Alger is sharper and funnier than he may appear, and he's got that Lisbon blue-collar background to draw from in creating the character, but people who claim to know swear it's not Alger. And I can't see Lewboo writing anything that doesn't frequently mention Lewboo, so that seems to rule him out too.
     
    Someone please pour JB some truth serum so we can solve this.
