    4awrestler got a reaction from Housebuye in Metcalf   
    Metcalf was a good doc but I thought the story of Kolat was as good as any of them. Terry was pretty good too and I’m no Hawkeye fan. I wish Flo could do more of these because the stories are awesome

    4awrestler got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling2 in Why not award by seed?   
    I like the idea of awarding All American status based on seed, but not the national title individually or team wise. You have to wrestle the tournament and there are plenty of examples of the number 1 seed losing to a much lower seed.

    I believe they earned the seed and the guys in the 9-33 seed range you’d have to feel for because they didn’t get the chance to make that upset.

    I don't agree with the idea of awarding championships but I could get on board with "officially" declaring the top 8 seeds at each weight to be all americans.

    The 1943, 1944, 1945 tournaments were canceled because of WWII. Lots of guys who could have placed or won never made it back home. 
    Time to put things into perspective.

    4awrestler reacted to ConnorsDad in Big Ten Session 2   
    Sorry this is so far after the fact but I just got started reading this thread. Come on now, a LOT of you people on here need to look up the word hypocrite in the dictionary. It's a really bad look when you complain about another guy stalling, and rightfully so, but then when you're guy stalls you refuse to acknowledge it, make up some lame excuse or just shake your head and say my guy won, my guy won! Not everybody does it but a lot of people on here do. I'll admit I was rooting for RBY but had he been wrestling a match in high school and I was the ref, I would have dinged him on more than one occasion. In college he should have been called even more. I'm glad he won but that looked bad.
    Also, showboating makes it look even worse.

    4awrestler reacted to tigerfan in Now imagine THAT determining the team champion   
    The only people who can possibly still be convinced that the NCAA tournament is a better way to determine the team champion are obviously hardcore PSU fans.  I'm not biased against either Iowa or PSU, I think they are both equally worthless, but that dual was epic. Casual/non-fans everywhere (like my girlfriend) can appreciate a contest like that and get excited about the matches/results, and be done in 2 hours.  There is no comparison to NCAA's and their indecipherable scoring that often results in virtually no drama during the finals on Sat night.  
    RBY was responsible for over 1/3 or PSU's points, so the argument that stars should be able to earn a disproportionate amount of points (like at NCAA's) is moot. It happens in duals too.
    Impressive and gutty performances by outmatched wrestlers (149/157) are completely discounted at NCAA's, but are another source of excitement in duals for those teams.
    I was actually really invested in the HWT match, which is almost unheard of at NCAA's.  They had to switch the order of the finals to counteract that effect, which is an admission in itself.
    Look at the reactions of the wrestlers themselves.  To those who think wrestling is primarily an individual sport, why do wrestlers at this level get that excited during duals? You see teammates sitting in the stands eating, resting, etc. for 40-60% of their teammates matches at NCAA's.  There are 3-4 dozen different teams where recruits can reasonable expect to win a national title for themselves, yet they often cite team chemistry, "fit", family atmosphere, etc. as the difference makers in their decisions.  Teams MATTER to these guys, and to fans, and pretty much exclusively matter to casual/non-fans.
    I refuse to accept that the horse is dead.  Never quit.

    It's what we should do. What an amazing product, great dual, twists and turns throughout. Great individual performances from Spencer, RBY, Nick Lee, Cenzo, Marinelli, Kemerer, and Cassioppi. Cenzo-Marinelli match of the night, what a battle. OW to Kemerer. Hoo boy, I am JACKED up.
     
    My cousin, NOT an Iowa fan at all, was raving about the product.

    That interview with Tristan Moran was good. I love that his favorite guy to wrestle is McKee so they can let it fly and throw up points. Good mentality backed up by a fun product on the mat.
