  1. Not that it matters, but his brother went undefeated his senior year so maybe that is the undefeated status, either way it is wrong and a hugh stretch.

    I mean it is way too early in Picos career to say he isn't still a sure thing. 7-3 with everyone of his opponents having a winning record, is a pretty good start. Even McGregor had 2 losses early in his career.
  3. I'm just playing devils advocate, but are we sure he isn't getting younger? He looked pretty good at the trials.
  4. I do think cox was our best chance at gold at that weight, and atleast deserved a chance, but this is a bit much. Cox was still going to be as much of an underdog as Snyder is. Cael and crew showed elite level adjusting from big tens to ncaas, let's hope they can do the same on the world stage.
  5. Remember training with her a bit at penn wrestling club back in the day, her work ethic was insane. It's great to see. Well deserved.
  6. We should be ashamed to have a 2 time gold medalist, looking the best he ever has, represent us in the Olympics? Weird... did he steal your girlfriend or something
  7. Honestly, I'm starting to think Dake was telling the truth when he said he was getting younger. Yikes.
  8. If they allowed him to weigh in, and it was literally within a minute of the end time, this is a joke and he should be wrestling. I thought we were trying to put out our best guys? It's not like he showed up an hour later.

    Or "results of opponents in similar but different sports" for strength of schedule
  10. Well isn't it obvious? He read on a college wrestling forum from an anonymous poster that he shouldn't of even wrestled ncaas. He decided the medical advice discussed on here was really important, and it was time to take time off to heal.
  11. I can't answer that. But are you suggesting that psu purposely lost because they felt like it? I'd assume they came out and competed to win, and it didn't work out. But they did win the NCAAs which is all that really matters apparently.

    I think most middle school/high school aged kids have grown up watching psu dominate, and that will help recruiting more then this year where they took 2nd. That's just my opinion though.
  13. I mean a team with top guys also wrestling your top guys, but also have better guys wrestling your weak links, could very easily win that match right? A full team effort?

    There was never a real indication that the psu dynasty was over though...
  15. Well I mean they did get rid of the national duals so that no one could question them when 5 guys carry them to a championship. So I can't argue it. Basically I hit my quota for defending psu.
  16. The Iowa being the only team worth of comparison was solely based off what you said, they took 2nd with 4 champs so they aren't the best staff, because Iowa was the only team able to actually beat them. I think there are some great staffs out there that can't compete with the recruiting that those two have. But recruiting is apart of it. And you can't ignore the adjustments PSU made.
  17. I have a hard time believing that Iowa having two better years, and maybe 3 should they win next year, automatically puts their staff ahead of PSU. And as far as your argument goes that's the only staff that competes. And I really don't want to try to defend PSU. They have plenty of psu diehards for that, its just two years is too small of a sample size to say PSUs staff isn't the best right now though.

    Might as well have them wrestle for it. Steveson might have a chance since Lee has no acls.

    I would think the team returning another year will give the younger guys more time to develop, and then all it takes is a good recruiting year. It's a little to early to predict the sky is falling for them, even if they take a bad (to their standards) year. But I would not mind more parity at the top. Just not too likely with how well PSU has reloaded through the years, and I'll give Iowa the benefit until the sky actually does fall since they have been constantly in the upper tier for a while. That being said If I was an elite wrestler right now, not trying to jump on the PSU train, I'd probably want to join Carr over at Iowa State. I enjoyed his interviews and he's trying to kinda do what Lee did at Iowa, so why not.

    I'll give Iowa the benefit of the doubt, and say they will likely reload, since outside of psu dominating, they have been consistently in the top teir, but it wouldn't completely shock me, considering what they have for their young guys. PSU reloaded very well though and it's gonna take a lot to stop that.

    With his post comparing PSU to Iowa, then talking about how it will affect recruits, like Iowa was some how winning that battle or something. It was merely me pointing out that PSU already is winning that battle, and a shot at some psu fans that a few years back would use recruiting rankings to say they weren't the best at that, my guess is to try and highlight their development. When in reality they are doing pretty much everything great coachingwise. But at the end of the day recruits will go to PSU because of their elite staff, others will go elsewhere to try to take them out. I get this topic is another PSU>Iowa post. It's true, PSUs overall success trumps Iowa's last 2 NCAA years. But it's irrelevant. Recruits are looking at the dynasty Penn state already had going. Nothing really changes.

    Well seeing as the op was questioning how this looks to future recruits, I was stating that it likely doesn't change much. PSU has and will continue to out recruit Iowa. Same thing different year.

    Are PSU fans still pretending they are somehow losing the recruiting battle when year in and year out their lineup is full of P4P recruits? And please don't use a rating system that benefits quantity over quality each year. PSU has won in recruiting, and yes, will continue to do so. Their finals performance didn't change that.
  24. You wanted him to sit out and get healthy. And that is exactly what they did. What's the problem? Them waiting 2 weeks so he could continue his goals of winning a team title and being a 4 timer, was not likely going to hurt his recovery, so why does it matter that he finished out the season? Nolf did the exact same thing.
