  1. I don't think I could do 7 years myself, but kudos to Kemerer and anyone else who takes advantage of any remaining eligibility. How often do you hear someone post college (or even post high school) talk about how much they miss wrestling and how they would do anything to get another year? Well, Kemerer is the living embodiment of this. Sure, he could still wrestle freestyle, but I'm not sure that's the same as wrestling for a team like Iowa and being around all your buddies day in and day out.
  2. Went back to rewatch the beginning of this match. Downey got a takedown early near the edge, ref blows the whistle and calls them out of bounds, and Downey hits a gut wrench (note: gut wrench was after the whistle, albeit half a second). They put 4 up on the scoreboard, but the mat official notices it and eventually they put it back to 2. There's another exchange about 20 seconds later near the edge where Downey is controlling the center, they get into some hand fighting and shoving, and Bo gets off balance to where he actually puts both hands out of bounds. When I looked at it again, Downey actually put his hand out of bounds at virtually the same time. Seems a little odd there was no call either way, but maybe the said it was a straight push? For anyone who wants to watch this themselves, it was on Mat 3 on Peacock yesterday, match starts at the 2:43:00 mark.
  3. I can't believe Tom Ryan would let Hunter Steiber wrestle with as hurt as he was. Shame on Tom Ryan for destroying H. Steiber's body! I can't believe Brian Smith let Grant Leeth wrestle these past few years when he has to wear a neckbrace to wrestle. Shame on Smith for destroying Leeth's body! I can't believe Rob Koll let Yianni wrestle at nationals when he tore his ACL in the middle of a match. Shame on Rob Koll for destroying Yianni's body! I can't believe Cael let Jason Nolf wrestle at nationals when you could see his knee pop a couple years ago. Shame on Cael for destroying Nolf's body! Maybe I'm late to the party, but I've just realized that these message boards are the internet version of trash reality shows: it's cringy, it's petty, it's a slow motion train wreck, and half the time it doesn't make any sense, but for whatever reason, I keep tuning it to see what happens next
  4. The more complicated you make the rules, the more wrestlers will game them. I don't know the answer, but I don't think adding rules for each situation is the answer
  5. This was posted on Twitter. Looks clunky to me, but given that we had absolutely no tournament at all last year, I'll take this over a complete cancellation. And yes, there are indeed more drinking sessions!
  6. Seems like there's really only one way to beat Joseph, and I bet Peyton Mocco or Kennedy Monday would have figured it out last year!
  7. Daniel Lewis pinned him at a dual during the 18-19 season.
  8. Dylan Peters stuck NATO at the 2014 CKLV
  9. Yep. Nothing screams "I want to make sure my son is ok" more than a full grown adult hitting an devastating downfield block on a teenager in the middle of a wrestling mat, and potentially causing harm to said teenager.
  10. There was a state finalist heavyweight in Missouri about 15 years ago named Conrad Slaughter. Definitely one of the best wrestling names I've ever seen.
  11. After each of his UFC losses, Askren went on the Ariel Helwani show the week following each fight and was very honest about his performances. For as much as he would talk trash leading up to his fights, he was very open and honest about losing and completely owned up to it. Here's his interview with Ariel just 2 days after the Masvidal KO. Whether you love or hate the guy, it's hard not to respect that he's willing to talk about it on a nationally watched show.
  12. Didn't Boo beat Bryce Meredith 2-3 years ago at Reno (or maybe Vegas) as a backup? The guy is obviously talented, but for whatever reason, it seems like he can't put a whole season together
  13. Big test coming up this weekend with Wisconsin coming into Carver Hawkeye, assuming DeSanto stays at 133.
