    LaxHawk174 reacted to azchief32 in Gilman   
    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."

    LaxHawk174 got a reaction from Coach_J in Anderson University to drop Wrestling   
    I think I speak for a lot of wrestling fans when I say we are lucky to have someone like you JB who is always on the forefront to save wrestling programs from being dropped.  I vividly remember your interview with the Cleveland State AD, and quite frankly, you made him look like a buffoon.  You clearly had done immensely more research on the subject than he had, and he didn't have an educated answer for any of your questions, which really exposed his true agenda.  I think this interview was a piece of helping get the program reinstated.  I'm hoping this is the case with the Anderson University AD, and hopefully he accepts your interview.  You have a knack for wrestling related research, and to be honest, I expect a similar interview should he accept.

    I'm already coming up with questions in my head. For any Division II AD to cite lack of conference affiliation, that's bunk considering all of Division II is on a regional qualifying model and there are a handful of D2 conferences that officially sponsor the sport, yet we've seen 26 new Division II programs since 2000 and NINE new programs in Division II since Anderson joined the South Atlantic Conference, and SIX of those are in geographic proximity to South Carolina. 
    I smell something funky here. Let's hope this guy takes my call like the Cleveland State AD did.

    Morningstar said in an interview with FLO at the Midlands, that Clark will probably be in for the next dual against Illinois and its not serious. Also read an article on the Midlands where Brands said it was Clarks decision to withdraw from the tournament and that he trusts his guys instincts, and basically he didn't want a minor injury to become a major injury while wrestling the semis and finals at midlands.

    What a bunch of crap. Sorry, man. He was good enough to get the two seed. He was good enough to place. He was good enough to bonus the three guys he faced before Gilman. This is such a crazy example of parsing facts and only taking the ones you want. Gilman was a better wrestler than Garrett last year. He wrestled a great match against Brewer, though.

    For reasons no one understands, Iowa seems to have completely abandoned weight training. That's why you've got guys like Evans and St. John running around with the physique of McLovin.

    Thats what is so great about wrestling, people find a style that suits their body type and that they are comfortable with. Its not limited to just the short and stocky guy or the long and lanky guy, but everything inbetween.

    Last Man Standing 2015/16 (non-All Americans)
    1. Pick the wrestler (any weight) you think will go farthest into the season without a loss.
    2. Pick a back-up, same criterion.
    1. Your choices must not have been previous All Americans (not just last year).
    2. Your choices are out: a) if they lose, forfeit, or default; b) if they do not compete in one of the duals or in tournaments in which at least five starters from their team are competing. (but see additional note below.)
    Exceptions to the latter are All-Star exhibition participants who miss competitions on the weekend of Nov 1-2.
    3. You cannot pick the same wrestler as both 1st and 2nd choices.
    4. You cannot pick the same two wrestlers in the same order as someone who has already picked.
    5. A loss to a non-collegian or non-DI wrestler does not count.
    1. You pick Bo Nickal and Jason Nolf as your 1&2.  Another player picks Nolf and Nickal, in that order.  You are both in the game.
    2. Nickal continues to win, but Nolf loses early.  Another picker has Nickal and Jake Sueflohn and both are still alive.  You are finished.
    3. Nickal loses in December and Nolf continues to win.  You are done if there are any 1st choices still alive.
    I propose that the picking commences Sunday night, 25 Oct at midnight (EDT).  Contest entries close at midnight (EDT) on Saturday, 31 Oct.  This means that an entry posted at 12:01 on Monday, Nov. 1, doesn’t count.
    Additional note: In past LMS contests many top wrestlers were eliminated early in the year because they were held out of opens or did not wrestle all of the matches in a one-day dual competition. It should not be the case that few are left after the first of the year because of non-participation.
    So, in this LMS contest:
    1) none of the early season opens or tournaments count against someone who does not enter. However, those who enter and compete obviously face possible elimination. The first tournament that will follow the above rule (#2) will be the Cliff Keen Las Vegas tournament. Others that count in this way will be Reno, Midlands and the Southern Scuffle.
    2) For one-day dual competitions a wrestler can skip one dual, but must participate in the rest of matches in which his school competes.
    This is a D1 wrestler contest. Matches with non-D1 competition do not count.
    Send your picks to the College Forum on The Mat.
    As before, I’ll keep a roster of picks and weekly updates.
    A list of former All Americans (as best as I can figure) follows on another thread.
    Please read the rules, especially as to start/finish time, or if you are challenged by words, have a fourth grader read it to you.
