  1. This seems eerily similar to the 2018 team race between Ohio and Penn state. Penn st. was banking on 5 champions, a couple AA's, and a sh!tload of bonus points, whereas, Ohio was well-rounded top to bottom with a couple low sticks, and I think Ohio was the favorite going into the tournament. Just like that year, a lot has to go wrong for Iowa, and a lot has to go right for PSU, but it could still really go either way. Personally, I think some of Iowa's guys (Murin, Young, Lugo, Assad) are ranked pretty generously, and/or at least won't place to their ranking.
  2. It should. You shouldn't just get to quit and have the loss not count.
  3. Ugh it's really tough, because I think Mark Hall has had easily the most impressive year before leading up to the Kem loss. He has almost an 80% bonus rate, and he pinned Labriola, MD Valencia, and won over Kutler. But the loss to Kem was surprising, Kem hasn't looked that dominant this year. I guess Nick Lee is the new #1 on PSU roster, but I don't think it stays that way. Wrestlestat has Mark Hall way ahead of Lee in ELO.
  4. Yianni did... Which is kind of why it would have been awesome to see him go through the 2020 cycle before switching to MMA. He would still have plenty of time to get his face smashed in like he has for the past year.
  5. He had a 40% pin rate his freshman year, 35% his sophomore year. Sorry that teching 90% of his opponents in the first period isn't good enough for you. Quick pins are boring anyways. In my opinion, first period tech > pin. Change my mind.
  6. I don't think I buy that Desanto has jumped levels. Yeah he beat Gross, but he also lost to him, it's kind of the same story every year - he beats really good guys (Micic, Suriano) then loses to them later in the season. His bonus % is also really high right now but I feel like it's going to drop like it usually does the second half of the season. If we see the RBY that just majored Ridge Lovett, Desanto could be in trouble.
  7. You're right. I thought at first that the Purdue kid was just acting all poopypants from getting teched, MonSanto literally gets in the kids face and chirps in his ear before getting up. God I hope he gets decked this year, whether it's Gross again or Rivera or RBY.
  8. This one isn't surprising though, Berge hasn't wrestled in a month.
  9. I don't think anyone overrated him, just that everyone thought he'd be better than an injured Conel.
  10. I see what you're saying. Again I think this is a Title IX procedure written in their school policy, of which Gable agreed to when he was enrolled.
  11. What exactly in their code of conduct did he break then? Is getting accused of a crime a violation of their code? How could the University make a ruling on the crimes committed before the criminal investigation is complete? I'm sure it's written somewhere in their policy (Title XI maybe?) that if someone is currently facing a sexual assault investigation that they're barred from participation of any student organizations. At least that's how it worked at my public university.
  12. I feel like we went through the same thing in 2018, when Ohio St had that stacked lineup and they kinda fell apart at NCAA's. I think it will be close, but I doubt Iowa's early season rankings will all hold up until NCAAs. Predicting a few low-AA's and DNP's and PSU will clean up with more champs.
  13. I mean he just beat one of our top 57 guys. It depends, though, what's the rulebook say on kimuras?
  14. He's gotta benefit with the lack of bottom wrestling. Does he have any freestyle experience?
