    There really isn't much of a difference. If it is about competing at which university will prepare you for an international career. Here is the number of former Iowa wrestlers vs. number of former PSU wrestlers to make the last 10 US World or Olympic freestyle teams. Nebraska and Ohio State probably have more than either.
    2019: Iowa - 0, PSU - 1
    2018: Iowa - 1, PSU - 1
    2017:  Iowa - 1, PSU - 1
    2016: Iowa - 1, PSU - 1
    2015: Iowa - 2, PSU - 0
    2014: Iowa - 2, PSU - 1
    2013: Iowa - 1, PSU - 0
    2012: Iowa - 0, PSU - 0
    2011: Iowa - 0, PSU - 0
    2010: Iowa - 2, PSU - 0
    If we want to compare club teams, then it doesn't really matter where you go to college, since you're not stuck with the club related to your university. If you want the best club team then you have to be willing to spend the cash. NLWC might be the next Foxcatcher, but the only real comparison point we have right now is Gilman's results at the HWC vs. Gilman's results at the NLWC.

    Okay? I guess saying that a death threat is equally bad toward a man or a woman now equates to "obviously has no respect for women." I'll have to consult the professor of logic at the University of Knowledge to see if that checks out, but just in case, I'll immediately check myself into sensitivity training.

    What about Micic or the Amines? Don't they compete for other countries? Maybe Earthlings? Brands wanted to take on extra terrestrials at one point, so we're going to need a Team Earth eventually.

    Criteria per WIN.
    Criteria for the award includes a wrestler’s record, number of pins, dominance on the mat, past credentials, quality of competition, sportsmanship/citizenship and heart.
    Wrestler's record: tie
    Number of pins: Spencer Lee
    Dominance on the mat: Spencer Lee
    Past credentials: Spencer Lee
    Quality of competition: Gable Steveson
    Sportsmanship/citizenship: Spencer Lee
    Heart: Spencer Lee
    Objectively it isn't even close. If WIN were to throw their own criteria out the window, then they could base it only on quality of competition and give it to Steveson. I don't know their thought process, but I'm assuming they put the criteria there so it doesn't become a "who do I like more" competition.

    I only post here around nationals so I don't know your post history Antitroll, but to imply that Spencer doesn't have a good head on his shoulders or people surrounding him who only want what is best for Spencer is laughable. Either a complete ignorance of reality, or your username is meant to be ironic. So either take a closer look at Lee and his family, or enjoy the feed.

    This was common for those of us who wrestled in high school in the 80s and 90s. There wasn't wrestling on TV unless you lived in the state of Iowa, but we all knew about Iowa anyway. We'd get VHS tapes of Iowa wrestling and watch them, and "Iowa Style" was a legitimate thing talked about all over. PSU is the big name now, but Iowa had a real mystique about them that I don't think we'll see again in this sport. Similar to how you can argue that we've had better wrestlers since Gable, but nobody has matched the Gable mystique. So it is easy to believe that there are a lot of Iowa wrestling fans around the country in their 30s to 50s who have 0 ties to the University of Iowa and have only been to the state to watch wrestling.
