  1. For what it’s worth, I thought what you wrote was spot on and without snark, not sure why Spey thinks you have an “axe” to grind as it was positive and negative feedback that was well written. I myself cancelled my membership of long time due to exactly what you wrote and I’ll add 2 things that put me over the edge to have me cancel after many years.. 1. Loss of B1G coverage 2. lack of any inside info at all since Willie left. I don’t listen to FRL hardly at all anymore because of this. If I have to hear Askren ask the boys about some rumors they are discussing, only to have the “boys” say, “I don’t know” or “just my guess,” is mind blowing to me. You’re supposed to be the biggest wrestling media company, ACT like it. Get some people that have inside knowledge and contacts so that every answer isn’t “just a guess.” Like someone else mentioned. Flo has become like a tabloid gossip site Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. As a subscriber of Flo for last 6 or 7yrs, I finally cancelled Flo and subscribed to Intermat. Flo cost me $130 a year for no B1Gs, horrible rankings and snarky hosts with no inside info to anything going on in wrestling world. And very little original articles with stuff I didn’t know already. I subscribed to Intermat 2 weeks ago for $40 a year for some incredibly written articles, staffed by people actually “in the know” of what’s going on. I’ll get B1G10 + for a few months next year to get my B1G10 fix. Saved money, much better writing, people in the know..no brainer for me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hilger wasn’t seeded above Kerk (I believe he was 14 and Kerk 9). I would rank Kerk exactly where Spey has him. The rest of your points are 100% valid. It shouldn’t even be a discussion honestly after the tournament. But O’Toole at 5th is totally dumb and truthfully Berge at 7 is dumb as well and this coming from a PSU fan that everyone says is so biased Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Berge shouldn’t be ranked 7th. Kerk should be ahead of Hilger since they met H2H and Kerk majored him. Did Lewis or Maranelli beat O’Toole? You work for Spey? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If you want to “project” Marinelli and Lewis can beat O’Toole I have no issue with it. But when you’re Mr Spey and constantly saying his rankings are “objective.” Makes no sense. How much more objective can you be than to rank O’Toole 3rd after he just finished 3rd in a tournament both guys are in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Not sure the need for “end of year” rankings anyway as we just watched the tournament unfold and the results speak for themselves. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Get a clue Vak. Keegan O’Toole has one NCAA appearance and finished 3rd. Marinelli has 3 appearances and best finish is 6th. So basically the guy that literally just took 3rd should be behind 2 guys that didn’t place (and were in the same tournament) including one guy that never finished higher than 6th in 3 tries? If we’re not going to use the national tournament as the ultimate barometer then how about we just roll dice? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah. Spey just put his end of year rankings out and has O’Toole who placed 3rd in the tournament that literally just ended 24 hours ago and has him ranked 5th behind Lewis and Marinelli both who didn’t place. Holy SH1T!!! Lol Ok. I’m done. Spey you are one of a kind. This made my night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Tbar I give you credit to keep coming here and mixing it up with so many dopes. It’s amazing Iowa fans can’t understand why we were thrilled with the outcome Saturday night. The team title was won prior to finals, we get it, congrats Iowa! The finals is for crowning individual national champs. Like you said “Hollywood Ending.” We knocked off two Iowa wrestlers that were seeded above us, knocked off Fix who some people were saying “next topic” and Brooks finally may get ranked #1 by Flo. 4 for 4 is amazing and anyone to try to diminish that is just sour apples Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I wish we knew what the true story was. Personally I feel bad for DeSanto. He wrestled his ass off and was a big part of Iowa winning. Honestly thought he should have beaten Fix To all the talk of (they could have taken his points away and PSU would win. I would hate to see that and It wouldn’t be a “real” win in my eyes as a PSU fan. For him not to be a part of the team pic, parade, etc. That just sucks for him. I also noticed Brands didn’t mention DeSanto when talking about guys that won them the team title. Whatever happened, I guess this is how all coaches would have handled it, so I’m not blaming Brands. I just feel bad for the kid. As much as I’m a PSU fan, I’m also a fan of kids that go and give 100% and DeSanto fits that description Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m more concerned with top 10. I’m not worried about 10-33, those are worth a grain of salt and can go a bunch of different ways. You’ll never see me complain about a guy ranked 20th that should be ranked 15th..I don’t care. But when you have guys clearly #1 and guys clearly top 10 that’s when we get annoyed. Like you said though..Brooks is the one that really pisses me off for 2 yrs now. Or Nick Lee at #3 all year.. Penn State had 6 wrestlers AA. Every one of them was under ranked by Flo. It happens every year and then nationals happen when they finally open their eyes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Spey..just rank them where they should be and you won’t hear a peep. EVERY PSU wrestler placed higher than you seeded them. You had Nick Lee 3rd all year. You had Brooks 4 all year. Go look at your last rankings and see where PSU placed in comparison. You do it every year and that’s why I complain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Ridiculous and probably true. Problem with him is he thinks it’s all a joke. Flo has lost so much credibility this last year and these guys still think it’s a joke. I’ll be cancelling as soon as trials are over. Just tired of the smugness (and it’s not all Spey). They have no insiders, and that’s what’s killing them. They have a bunch of fans but no sources. They screwed themselves when they got rid of Willie. He was the one insider they had. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Then you need to tweak it. Seriously, instead of being hard headed with your rankings how about trying to improve so that the rankings have a little reality. All rankings need to be objective I agree but the rankers that put some common sense subjectivity are the best rankers. Until you want to improve, you won’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. My final thoughts on this. Team Championships—super impressive Individual titles-Super impressive That being said and I’m being 100% honest. I feel much happier tonight than 2 yrs ago when we won team title and Mark and Cenzo lost in finals. And it’s not even close Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Vak- pretty simple. If PSU won 2 individual titles and Iowa won 1. Different story and Iowa fans should be happy as heck and cheering like banshees. It wasn’t 2-1. It was 4-1 and 2 of those were underdogs. PSU fans can’t feel better about how this tournament went (Besides Berge Injury). That’s just facts. Iowa in the other hand has a handful of kids going home sick to their stomachs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Spey. How do you feel about having Brooks ranked 4th for 2 yrs? Will he be pre season 1? Or will Max Dean be ahead of him? By far the worst rankings in the country. There’s so many others that I can point out but won’t waste my time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Another great take by MSU. 6-0 today and 4 champs. Sorry to piss on your parade Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I’m shocked anyone would listen to them while matches going on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I for one don’t rip on kids getting hurt. Especially Bull who’s a warrior with some bad luck/timing. That being said, you’re out of your mind on Hall but continue your stupid talk. How many kids are 4 time finalist? That’s not separating from pack? Fool Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Only a fool would make such a comment. Kid was 1,2 2 in his three NCAA appearances and the 1 seed going into last year. But yeah, he never got better than he was in HS..carry on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. What a stupid comment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. He hasn’t been on the mat in 6 weeks and just got cleared 2/22. What the hell is so funny that you “lol’d”. Those are facts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
