The team is about as good as any team we’ve seen the last decade and could make a run at the scoring record in 2021 if healthy. Extremely low bust rate from the recruiting staff the past few year, so props there. The only pleasure I can take in any of this is knowing the 2021 national championship will be won without any wrestlers from the state of Iowa. And this year’s team only has Wilcke, who has graciously assumed the role as team/fan punching bag
Tough times for a Hawkeye hater, but 2022 isn’t far off. I’m not a huge believer in this next wave (Ybarra, Schreiver, Teasdale, Henson, Reyna, Kennedy Rathjen, etc.) to adequately supplement Cass and Assad. Of course, 3-5 transfers could change all that.
Hope this year’s PSU team can at least make it an even decade for a winless Brands, but I think it would take a historic collapse for that to happen - the likes of which we haven’t seen since the Tom Ryan disaster of 2018.
