    Because I don't find Flap funny any longer?  Tell me what's new.

    the new thing is that Iowa is on the verge of needing a complete reboot. 

    The link to gable is gone, its time for them to abandon the legacy and become underdogs...at least if they want to be national champions. They think they are carrying the flame but they aren't.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think Shak was in any worse condition going into the finals as he was going into the semis. For that reason, I think it was a duck. Shak's best chance to win is in their first meeting. I don't expect this to happen, but I see the only way Shak wins is if he cradles Martin (this is not to diminish Shak as a wrestler, since he has proved his is more of a wrestler than just a cradler) or if he can find a way to ride him for a good portion of the match, which would require a takedown. Martin is the better wrestler and has one of the most diverse offenses in the country. I think he would use the feel from the first match to avoid uncomfortable positions in a rematch. Martin's ability to adapt his game plan after a first meeting is better than Shak's. Either way, I think he will win comfortably.

    Despite my post about PSU protecting their game plan I disagree that Shak's best chance to beat him would ordinarily be in there 1st meeting. Martin brings a lot of athleticism to the table and thats traditionally almost impossible to simulate, so the more feels the better, though god knows whose been rolling around at the NLWC lately.
