  1. Society is currently working on that. The current age is 26 for the "kid" card.
  2. Why does being transgender have to be negative? ;)
  3. Like wrestling, message boards were invented in 2011.
  4. Guess you forgot the whole post...which was meant as a joke "Theoretically IMar could have his degree by now. Now for the moment we have all been waiting for: 125: Laux 133: Happel 141: Sorensen 149: Kem-dawg 157: Marinelli 165: IMar 174: Young 184: Wilcke 197: PD3 HWT: Stoll Disclaimer: this lineup will never happen"
  5. Gross has to worry about Clark...and Turk beat him last year 10-8
  6. Johnni DiJulius and Jimmy Guilbon beat him in the regular season too in 2015...He made the finals. Not saying I would bet the house on Clark winning it but I like his chances when the lights are on. The thing with NATO is that he's not very offensive in big matches. Plus, the guys that give Clark trouble are quick, athletic dudes that can get to his legs. Not the power guys. Another one who wasn't mentioned was Seth Gross. If he can maintain his weight down at 33 he will be a tough out. Rd of 12 guy at 41.
  7. Ramos got manhandled and stuck by Colon at Midlands. Like Brewer, Colon looked like he had a big time size advantage. Colon and Ramos have wrestled twice (?) in freestyle with Ramos taking both.
  8. For those who think Iowa is ducking and owes PSU one: 2011: at PSU 2012: at PSU 2013: at Iowa Dec 2013: unscheduled one at Iowa; now teams are even 2015: at PSU 2016: ???

    Wow...just wow...do you take yourself this seriously in real life or just on the boards? Here's the ironic thing....Gilman would make an excellent Marine if he put on fifty or sixty pounds. His hard-nosed, tough as nails, all in attitude is something they cherish and is at the heart of their core values.

    Rarely post on here but just had to log on. As an Iowa fan, just have to say the hate brings a nice warm glow to the tummy. The OP didn't specify beyond Gilman is a dirty dude...can't believe it was for the Wisconsin match. What are you, a girl? I don't know how many times I have seen guys (not Iowa) keep a guy's head in the mat for the last five or ten seconds of a match, or push up off another guy when standing up. DT, especially, was a fan of this after riding the sh*t out of a guy. I'm sure threads like this keep Gilman up at night in a cold sweat worried about all the classy fans out there who just want things to be...uh classy. So here's a pep talk by the great Iowa alum Col Jessup...or was it John Kreese. Anyways : "Son, we live in a world that have fish, and those fish have to be dominated by Hawkeyes. Who's gonna do it? You TFBJR? You, Flying Tiger? Iowa has a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Jimenez, and you curse Gilman. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Jimenez's butt whooping, while humorous, probably saved lives. And Gilman's existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, gives you something to complain about. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at sportsmanship banquets where everybody gets a trophy, you want Hawks on that mat, you need Hawks on that mat. They use words like domination, excellence, and caddywhompus. They use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them to whine like a b*tch. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain them to whiners who like a sport who they helped revolutionize, and then questions the manner in which they did it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you jump on the mat and sweep a leg...Either way, I don't give a damn what you think about my Hawkeyes."
  11. The thread(s) was created to poke fun at ourselves (well done Sloe) in regards to Lee and at Penn State fans who take what we say way too seriously...oh wait. TBar...I can send you a link as to where Lee is registered so you don't miss out on getting him a gift ;)
  12. Mother Nature may or may not be a fan of Iowa but God will step in that day and tell her to go make a sandwich.
  13. The season after my freshman year, I'd had it. Burn out after years of wrestling. We moved from a small school to Blue Springs, Mo, which was one of the largest in Mizzou at the time. I decided to go out for basketball. Showed up for the first day of practice and their varsity looked like a college team. Welp, had my trusty Iowa wrestling TShirt on and my Geometry teacher asked me if I was from Iowa (he was an Asst Coach)...I said yes but that I didn't wrestle anymore. He sent me down to talk to the Varsity Coach who then left his class and talked to me for about a half hour to get me to show up for practice. The team had close to 60-80 kids. I half-heartedly showed up...first part was a five mile warm up run and then practice started. I thought, "What the hell did I get myself into?" Great coaches, great program, and my improvement was tenfold. What a difference a coach, who took a half hour out of his schedule, made in this wrestler's life.
  14. I am actually an alum of GCU and have to say my educational experience with them was pretty good. I am in the military stationed in Arizona and work 8-10 hour days. Once I knocked out my lower division credits, my choices of schools were severely limited because I am a married adult who has to support a household. The University of Arizona isn't set up to cater to individuals in my category, therefore places like GCU step in to fill this void. GCU has two separate categories: The on-campus and online version. Both serve their purposes and have limitations. However, this is the future model of education, whether you like it or not. Instead of having the academic experience centered around the institution, it will now be catered to the individual's schedule. Already, many non-profits are having to adapt, especially in master's programs. For example, ASU's MBA program is now online as well (its a top 20 MBA program). All of this wouldn't have happened if not for the "For Profits" expanding that market. I think we can all agree that the expansion of choices only helps the consumer, no matter which model you believe in. A great analogy of all this is online dating. Back in the 90's and early 2000's, if you told somebody that you met your mate online, you might have gotten a few raised eyebrows. Now, nearly 1/3 of married couple meet online. BTW, for those that might be turned off that it is a Christian university, I had to initially take one class called "Christian Worldviews" which was essentially a comparative religion class. It got a bit preachy (mostly from fellow students) but was okay. After I started my core classes, it essentially disappeared. As for the wrestling part, who can argue with another D-1 team? We are supposed to be in the "more is better" category since Title IX decimated our sport. Think GCU isn't or couldn't be legit? Maybe Tyrell Fortune might have something to say about that.
