  1. There is nobody who thinks he's a 2 time champ. Many people think the match should have been scored differently (like a million other matches). Zero people think he's not a 4X champ. You had a soapbox and you created a fake argument to make the climb onto your soapbox easier.
  2. Who on this site says Logan isn't a 4Xer? This is a pathetic attempt to tear down a non-existent strawman argument. Logan is a 4X champ. End of story. Nobody debates whether he won or not.
  3. You are right. I was wrong for sure about the 149 match. That ones a tossup.
  4. Iowa by however much they want. OSU's best wrestlers run into clearly better Iowa guys.
  5. Get out of here with that. Half of the Big Ten doesn't wrestle each other, the bottom half largely doesn't wrestle the top half, and outside of conference duals, the Big Ten schedules just like everyone else. Top end Big Ten schedules might be slightly harder then the non-Big Ten in the top 15 teams, but it isn't night and day.
  6. The refs call it that way because one guy is winning and the other is losing. It bears no resemblance to how they call stalling the rest of the match.
  7. Actually if the guy stays in the center he still gets dinged. Refs are human and stalling calls are often optics as much as anything else.
  8. It's very easy to score points and stall more, especially with automatic rules on backing out of bounds and dropping to the ankle. Last night's match was well officiated. The example you gave is of a comment by the TV announcer, and the actual ref in the match completely ignored the fans you are referencing. But I agree Iowa fans complain louder and more often about stalling then any other fans. I also agree refs sometimes listen to those loud fans. Last night they didn't.
  9. When a team scores more TDs in a match is that a reffing imbalance? Or is it that 1 team was better in that dual at takedowns? Iowa was much better at not stalling in this dual.
  10. I love the throw. If he hits it the match is over even if he doesn't get the pin, because nobody is coming back from down 6 on Mark Hall. But he had 95% of a great move. Kemmerer had 100% of a great counter to that great move. I think it was all awesome and all scored like it should be.
  11. Actual head size. He looks like a walking candy apple. He definitely doesn't seem full of himself and I mean to insult only his giant noggin, not his excellent wrestling or character.
  12. I thought it was generally accepted that Mark Halls head counts for an additional weight class.
  13. If you value things that look good it was a great wrestling move. I prefer moves that end in a takedown. If he had done the same thing and ended up on top it would have been awesome. I am fine with it looking great and not scoring.
