    Women's College Wrestling

    I feel the same way. I'm not a Brands or Iowa fan at all, but I think it is cool that they are supporting multiple women athletes with the Hawkeye Wrestling Club.

    Is Cassar a favorite to repeat?

    Favorite? Yes. Heavy favorite? No.

    Toughest weight bracket, all-time at the NCAA's

    When people post 'X All Americans' are they meaning that many of the wrestlers in that bracket were All Americans at some point in their careers? Or counting multiple honors like 8 guys all being three time AAs as 24 All Americans?

    What was the Iowa fanbase's reaction to getting 4th this year?

    "potential" yeah. But all four guys who finished ahead of him are coming back next year plus Bravo-Young, Phillippi, WIlson, and Gomez. He's a potential finalist but also could potentially not AA.

    If Iowa doesn't win the team title in 2020 does Brands' seat get hot?

    If Lee had faded to 7th like Marinelli but Iowa had still gotten 4th (from Stoll or Wickle AAing, bonus points, whatever, how that would happen doesn't matter unless it's another guy in the finals) Brands wouldn't even be able to sit down because of how hot his seat would be. Having an individual champ really takes the sting out of a lessened team finish.

    I think Brands is safe at Iowa for as long as Lee is there. Iowa has lowered their expectations and as long as they have somebody win an individual title every year that'll keep the wolves at bay even if they don't finish in the top 3.

    That's the whole idea - guys were putting themselves in bad situations and then holding on hoping for a stalemate. The danger rule is to force them to make a decision to bail out rather than hang on. I'm actually surprised that it ends up getting awarded more than once in a blue moon and I bet it'll decrease in the coming seasons as guys adjust.

    Returning Placers per weight

    Agreed - I think that looking at placers is the right way to start and tells most of the story but looking at the blood round guys helps as well. 133 for example, also returns most of their blood rounders. That weight class is going to be absolutely brutal against next season.

    Hawk Talk with Mudflap - Wait Till Next Year

    Well, for one, you can't pay a recruits dad to be a resident athlete. You can pay them to be an RTC coach.

    How important is recruiting?

    13/80 = percentage of All Americans that are not top 100 recruits 13/1000+ = percentage of not top 100 recruits that become All Americans.

    How important is recruiting?

    Not even top 100 recruits have a 16% chance of becoming an All American. 16% of All Americans were non top 100 recruits. There are thousands of non top 100 recruits. A non top 100 recruit has less than a 1% chance of becoming an All American.

    How important is recruiting?

    You're off there. 16% of AAs weren't top 100 recruits. Not 16% of non top 100 recruits reach the podium. Those 13 non-top 100 AAs were 13 out of thousands.

    Who's going to Olympic Red Shirt next year?

    Being in the top three was enough http://content.themat.com/forms/2020-Olympic-Redshirt-Criteria.pdf 1) Past National Team members (Top 3 from the World or Olympic Team Trials) 2) Top 8 at the 2019 Senior US Open 3) Top 3 at the 2019 NCAA Wrestling Championship or NCAA Champion from a previous year AND top 2 from the 2019 U23 World Team Trials (must accomplish both) 4) Previous Cadet, Junior, U23 World Medalist Flo has an article klisting who was already eligible before this last weekend. You can add all top three finishers to this list and then you could have somebody make a US Open run this summer to get on it as well. https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6316414-so-whos-qualified-for-an-olympic-redshirt-so-far

    Coach John Smith

    Pretty much this. I'm not sure what @garyc was getting at with this thread. What was Smith supposed to do there?

    Coach John Smith

    Why would you lose respect for a coach asking for a reasonable review? That easily could have gone the other way. Throwing the brick there was the right thing to do. Also, who cares if somebody wins off a penalty point? If an opponent breaks the rules then they get hit for it. There's nothing wrong with wanting a review to see if he got the TD off of a headgear grab.
