    tOSU 125

    Interesting as this seems like an argument for keeping him in redshirt. I think often times really good young guys benefit from a redshirt when they A. Need time to grow and physically adjust to the college level. B. Are on the level from neutral but need to improve on the mat to stay with the top guys. Both of these criteria appear to apply to Heinselman so I was definitely in favor of keeping the shirt on.

    tOSU 125

    Bo's RS year the starter at 165 (the weight he would wrestle the following year) was Mark Martin and 174 was Nick Heflin.

    tOSU 125

    Nick Roberts was the 125 that year. He had a solid year and was a NQ I believe. Nato beat him pretty soundly in the wrestleoff that year but stayed in redhshirt.

    Just watched it, that was a horse**** call.

    Tomasello to compete at Midlands

    This. As great as Lee was last year he still took a loss to an injured Nato at Big 10. Anyone who has had a torn ACL knows how much that can effect your wrestling particularly on bottom. I would assume he will be at 125 for the opportunity to battle Spencer Lee.

    I feel like he should have been hit for stalling at least 2 more times. Made no attempts to initiate action from neutral and did even less on top. I guess that's good awareness and game planning because the official was not calling it. Showed grit winning close matches against tough opponents.

    tOSU Signees

    This class is loaded and coupled with last years class solidifies the Bucks as a powerhouse for the forseeable future. I think many believe that Karchla and Kerkveliet look like future national title contenders and imo Jordan Decatur has the potential to be that kind of superstar as well. The fact that he will have a year to learn and redshirt behind Pletcher plus a year of getting knocked around by Tomasello, Pletcher, Mckenna and Stieber and he should be ready to rumble.

    Bo and Micah Jordan. Ben and Zeke Jordan (did they overlap?). Jim and Jeff Jordan.

    Frenzy at the Fieldhouse

    Desanto was giving extra pushes and taking liberties throughout the match as were all of the Hawkeyes. Rooney pushed him back and had a few words for him after the match. What about his reaction do you think was over the top? Should he have just taken it from Desanto because he's is from Iowa? People are so quick to excuse the extra curricular as part of the Iowa style but are mad when people push back.

    So obviously you have a thing against tOSU as most of your posts seem to be disparaging towards them. I've been a Buckeye wrestling fan for a long time and the fact that there are so many OSU haters out there is really further evidence of how elite they have become. That said you make a lot of posts that are not supported by facts I think you probably realize this and do it just to piss people off. Spencer Lee is great and was great before arriving at Iowa. Attacking Nato is pretty low class. The guy is a freakin warrior who wrestled his senior year on a torn ACL and still found a way to beat everyone he faced (including Spencer Lee at Big 10's). I'm sure you'll say that she weren't disparaging Nate just stating a fact, but your not so clever nickname and tone suggest otherwise. Hating on an entire team because they are good is annoying, calling out and disrespecting one of the classiest dudes in college wrestling because he lost to stud while injured is a complete dickhead move.

    More Jordans

    I love the fact that Rocky Jordan won state in both wrestling and fishing. That's a well rounded athlete.

    2018 Ohio State wrestle-off information

    I agree that Romero is still a bit raw and will improve, but he is in no way undersized and is in fact pretty big for the weight. Competed at 170 as a senior in HS and 174 last year in his redshirt year.

    Pretty sure the Stickleys are also Jordan cousins.

    RTC discussion on Flo

    I heard that Tom Ryan was seen getting into a Delorean with a crazy white haired old man in a lab coat. I suspect he may have gone back in time and convinced Russ to hire Miron as an assistant in the late 90's so that he could get a leg up on recruiting Carson. True story.

    How is Nate Carr not a legit hire? The guy is alumni, a 3x NCAA champ and Olympic Bronze Medalist. Previous college coaching experience at WVU and a successful high school coaching experience. Obviously Nate is making the move to be close to his son, but even if David wasn't in the mix I think that would be a solid hire for ISU.
