LaxHawk174 reacted to Medicine_Man in My Journey to 2nd Place
You are some serious customers...probably without the humor to enjoy the words of DF...likely never heard of hyperbole. Reminds me of my wife when I tell her what happened at the store: "As I was checking out, the girl at the register yelled toward the back of the previous customer who was walking out of the store. She hollered, "Sir! Sir! You forgot your billfold, Sir!!" And the man, instead of turning back, bolted out the door and sprinted down the sidewalk. Very unusual behavior. A police car just happened to be driving by, and the red lights and siren came on, the car then sped after the running man. Then about 20 seconds later, from what sounded like less than a block away, gunshots were fired!" After I tell my wife this, she asks, "was she pretty?" "Who?" I respond. "The girl at the register you were talking about." I would say I've read nearly 5,000 more books since that post. Lots of books out there, comic books, matchbooks, short books of the bible, some very short books of which some of my favorites are; One Hundred And One Spotted Owl Recipes, by The EPA. Orville Reddenbacher's Favorite Snack Treats Amelia Earhart's Guide to the Pacific Ocean Different Ways to Spell "Bob" Dr. Kevorkian's Collection of Motivational Speeches Everything Men Know About Women Everything Women Know About Men George Foreman's Big Book of Baby Names The Amish Phone Book Mike Tyson's Guide to Dating Etiquette Female's Guide To Logical Thinking. Bowler's Guide To Health & Fitness. Eskimo Swimsuit Models Life As An Air Traffic Controller, by Ray Charles. Pi, Rounded For Everyday Use

It never happened. Just Hawkeye propaganda
LaxHawk174 reacted to Pinnum in Speculation S Lee will compete this year
This is one of the reasons I think the planned redshirt is a bad idea.
I see many more guys who are capable of starting as freshmen only wrestling for three seasons of competition than I see guys having a big fifth year that justified the expense and sacrifice of the redshirt.

>>>But in that loaded 184 class his best win of 2016 was Lorenzo Thomas. Being an AA in a good weight class is not as impressive when you don't beat any of the good guys in the weight class.
... According to whom? Fans who assess who's "weaker"?
You earn your mettle - and medal - by winning one bout a time. You don't choose who you meet but chances are the "lesser" rival you meet upset someone ranked higher - so they're some of the most dangerous guys in a tourney.
... And I guess you're downgrading beating the monster, Dudley, who was 2nd that year and 3rd in '17? Doesn't count 'cause it was Nat Duals? Miklus also had 2 wins in 2016 vs. Buckeye NCAA 5 Courts.

LaxHawk174 reacted to MSU158 in Spencer Lee will (fill in the blank)
Although I admit there will be a lot of pressure on Lee, the premise is missing from those touting it. Lee was never expected to single handedly bring Iowa back. He was supposed to be a major face in shifting Iowa's focus on recruiting. Especially in PA. Lee joins Kemerer, Marinelli and Warner in a recent shift of top 10 recruits. Teasdale was supposed to be a part of this as well. However, with the defection of Teasdale to PSU, you end up with PSU recruiting 27 of the top 10 recruits of 2018(obviously not accurate but it feels like it with them recruiting 6 of the top 13).
With what PSU is doing, even the most ardent Iowa fan realizes that Lee alone is far from enough. If they are able to land Sasso and Hidlay along with Teske, they will stay on a great trajectory, but still need to keep it up.
2018-2019 will be a lineup to see if they can get back to competing with PSU
125:Lee #2 recruit
141:Turk/Happel/Murin #67,19,44 Maybe 1 of them can make 133(doubtful)

By the way, it's really too bad Spencer Lee got hurt this year as he would have gone 55kg and would have wrestled Fix and then we could have seen where things stand. I mean clearly Fix improved a lot since he beat Lee but I have always believed that Lee simply screwed the pooch in his match with Fix, especially the first one. He was winning 5-0 with 35 seconds to go, shoots and gets crotch lifted and then gets pushed out but is still ahead 5-3 with 25 seconds to go and he shoots and gets rolled. Then he almost gets a takedown but can't plant Fix's knees. Disastrous.
Fix has become a monster since then and we have no idea how Lee's own improvement was because even though he wrecked junior worlds 2x it was at 50kg which is just not the same as 55kg. So more than anything I want to see Spencer get healthy and wrestle Daton Fix.
