    Just came to this conclusion. I don’t know why this year feels especially long, but it does. Any ideas?

    Tennesea_hubcap reacted to Housebuye in Lowest Seed with a Chance at Winning   
    Max Dean is super tough and, just like Gabe, doesn't always seem to have the best technique on paper as compared to the top guys in the weight. When it comes down to it though, Dean found a way to win. He would beat some of the top guys by 1 point, but he almost always pulled it off (only 2 losses at NCAAs). 
     
    I see similar characteristics in Max. While Max hasn't had the freshman season Gabe did, he is super strong, has cardio and has shown wrestling acumen. He was not a highly touted recruit and he has been ≈top 10 almost all season. One more level jump and a guy like Bo/MM getting upset or injured could make it a reality.
     
    Every year some of the top level guys get upset for one reason or another. In fact, some years entire brackets fall apart.

    Tennesea_hubcap reacted to VakAttack in Spencer Lee will win the NCAA's   
    I'm fine and dandy, just haven't had a lot of time for posting these days.  Thought Spencer wrestled better against NaTo this time than in the first match, even though he lost this time.  I think he can obviously beat him, but NaTo is a bear.  Plus you also have Suriano and Cruz, who I actually think is a bad match up for Spencer.  He presents a lot of the same problems Bresser presented, except he's much better.

    Tennesea_hubcap reacted to tightwaist in Spencer Lee will win the NCAA's   
    He will probably be the # 4 seed, so probably has Cruz in Semi's.  I love Cruz, but just think that Spencer poses a difficult match up for him.  Regarding NaTo, Lee was very close to finishing a couple of TD's.  I think he wins the rematch.  Regarding Suriano, well I think Suriano being out for the past few weeks doesn't help his cause and he most likely sees NaTo in the semi's.

    Wrestling credentials? Well, okay.
     
    Started in 6th grade.  Undefeated in 7th with one move, double underhook pancake...farm boy move.  Lost a couple in 8th grade to guys who knew technique.
     
    Learned some technique.  Made varsity 98 as freshman...but after not making weight 3 times in a row, instead wrestled Jr. High matches at 105.  Undefeated.
     
    Soph.  Defeated varsity 126 lber in tourney that allowed two at each wt., but couldn't beat him following week in wrestle off.  Stayed on JV all year, lost a couple (got pinned once) by guys who cheated and used more technique.
     
    Jr.  Beat varsity 132 pounder (same guy as mentioned above at 126) in wrestle off at mid year.  Coach took me aside after practice and said, "He's a senior and a captain, so we're just gonna let him wrestle varsity."  He took 2nd in state and I went undefeated on JV, 24-0 with 21 pins (still pancaking everyone...got one in :06)
     
    Sr.  Went to 167, where there was an undefeated defending 2-time state champ with a 97 match win streak (this was before Brian Shute, but pretty sure Shute was based on him...maybe the entire movie, only difference was I went up two weights to battle him.)   Got pinned in state finals.  Didn't cry.
     
    Worked construction for 7 years, then entered an old timers tourney, lost in finals, 5-4 to a 3-time Dll all-american.  A juco coach recruited me, gave me my own dorm room and free food for semester.  Won national qualifier and then lost in round of twelve, med fft, separated shoulder.
     
    Told coach I was done, but he wanted me back.  Said I could take photoshopping classes.  I said no.  He said he would get me a log cabin to stay in, out by the river, just house sit and tend horses.  I said no. 
     
    One day I was walking in his office, just before summer break, and he came out and introduced me to a gorgeous 105 lb brunette who he said was interviewing for team trainer next season.  After she left I told coach if he hired her I'd come back....we shook on it.  He and I were about the same age.  I told him I also wanted the cabin and the chop classes.
     
    We had a team meeting before school let out for the summer, and voted for next year's captains.  I got all the votes except one, and I told coach to find out who the one was, I wanted to know.
     
    I was a good captain, I never went out to shake hands with the opposing captains, instead I sent out whichever of my team mates had the toughest opponent.  My shoulder healed up pretty good, and I started training early that year, determined to win a national title. 
     
    Me and the trainer girl lived in the cabin out by the river.  My second bout that year was against a 3-time NAIA champ, and I was leading 13-12 with 20 seconds left, but I wasn't quite dead fit, and lost a step late in the match...he took me down with 5 sec left...a good tune-up match though.  Think I still have her pic around here somewhere...

    Tennesea_hubcap reacted to WillieBoy in Tom Brands Works and Studies to inspire Iowa wrestlers   
    Deep research, much like Mudflap does though not quite so penetrating - has revealed Coach Brands is is leaving no stone unturned in trying to pump up Iowa wrestlers in their mad rush to place at least third at NCAA's this year.
     
    Lately he has been watching the movie TAXI DRIVER and its hero Travis Bickle. Played by Robert DeNiro (Brands secret man-crush) he has great lines. The movie even shows Tom how to practice the lines. He bought full length mirrors so he can watch as he practices these sure fire lines to get Iowa phyched, not so fans will think he is a phycho.
     
    You just watch. Iowa will be inspired because Tom is practicing the line and learning to look tough like DeNiro. He's practicing his gestures, his jumps and hops and maybe even a backflip or two.(think Caldwell over Metcalf here) Tommy will leave no stone unturned in his quest to bring Iowa to Third this year.
     
    The new lines and pep talks will be accompanied with a new wardrobe to reflect his focus on the Ultimate Mat Warrior - and he'll showcase it as soon as K-mart or Target has a sale on shirts.
