  1. I enjoy mingling in the bars before/after sessions ALMOST as much as the actual event.....and if they do $20 upper level, there is no reason for anyone to complain.
  2. I read/saw the same thing, but I feel like that article said this particular configuration was still not 100% confirmed.
  3. My thoughts on this were that I think this may look worse since the one kid is wearing fight shorts vs. a singlet. The fluff from the shorts I think kind of hides or is deceiving to how deep he may have been.
  4. I definitely had this thought while watching.
  5. Right there with everyone else that these guys looked HUGE. Williams looked like he was 190+!! I thought the same that there was more action...small sample size with only 10 matches and shortened clips we were given though, often just starting in the 3rd period. Not sure if the settings were off on my TV, but the leg bands of Iowa were always a lime green when moving around. When standing, not moving, they showed as their normal gold. Out of bounds rulings were throwing me off compared to what I am now used to. During the Guerrero match, I forgot all about just one ride out. I still can't get over that stat about Iowa winning 24 matches in a row at the tournament.....gotta feel like that is a Cal Ripken record that no one is ever touching. As a guy who didn't start wrestling until 1999, this was fun to watch though. I hope ESPNU is planning on doing more of the "college" days like Iowa day. I would be on bard with them showing more of these....definitely could do one on OkState, Penn State....Minnesota the year they had 10 All Americans.
  6. LINK to an article by Tony Rotundo for next year...little bit of insight, but mostly what was already talked about on here
  7. Sitting in the front row or NC State's section this year, right behind PSU's section....the first session, PSU fans made it known that they were going to stand and cheer for every PSU takedown/backpoints. I didn't have a problem with this....slightly annoying making it difficult to watch other matches, but glad that there are passionate fans out there. Some others around me grew tired of this very quickly though. That combined with too many beverages before the session led to some verbally complaining every time and booing PSU any chance they got. One guy yells PSU SUCKS after a PSU win....lady goes to get an usher to try to get a couple guys removed. It took fans not involved from the one section over to speak up and talk the usher out of it...still a verbal warning to the rowdy bunch. Cue the next session and the DeSanto/RBY match. I did not catch the beginning of it, and it was loud with the PSU faithful booing the end of the match....but I look over and some big, bulky dude got out of his seat and walked back a couple rows to get in these same guys' faces. Didn't escalate to blows, but tempers were raised. His wife/girlfriend was holding him back, trying to calm him down.....Cooler heads prevailed after, and smooth sailing the rest of the tournament. Aside from this, everyone does get along regardless of favorite teams/wrestlers. You can be sitting next to a guy who is passionate about McKenna/Ohio State while you root for Nick Lee/PSU, and everyone gets along just fine.

    Thank you....just wanted to make sure I was not in the minority in thinking this. Same concept as wrestling from your knees in freestyle, correct?

    I don't think the concussion protocol was bogus...take all the time needed. I do think you are on to something with Cael trying to stall the action with the delayed brick.....This match took forever.

    not injury time....concussion protocol. Neutral on the restart then until the ADS takedown later in the period.

    DeSanto fan here....watching the RBY match live in the arena, I thought he was dead to rights in getting taken down. When I got back to the hotel that night, I was expecting to read a lot of hate against him on here and was surprised to see this was not the case....after watching the replay, I see what everyone was saying about RBY only having one leg. What I saw was more controversial than the takedown was RBY going hand behind the back again. I know it must be frustrating to wrestle Austin, but doing that coupled with a lot of backing up....should stalling have been called on RBY more? There was a moment in the 3rd period when RBY had his hand behind his back, was on one knee, and backing straight up from the center to the edge of the mat. I was sitting next to the PSU fans, and they were actually yelling that DeSanto was the one stalling....? I know it was hard for them to see RBY go down, but the boos that they were giving Austin after the match, I could not understand.
  12. All that I am seeing available is the 300 level/upper deck.
  13. Miklus pinning Trazler to guarantee another AA for himself....It was probably my favorite moment of the tournament, because it was right in front of Missouri's section.....He probably got 15-20 hugs from everyone there before heading back the tunnel....very emotional.
  14. I was enjoying where this thread was going until the last 3/4 posts
