I see what you're saying, but it probably makes little sense to have a 118 lbs. division considering than the field at 125 was already pretty weak this year. Furthermore, when the lowest Olympic weight is 57 kg (125.4 lbs.) we should keep the lowest NCAA weight around there as well.
It was a smart move my Brands to get him out of there before the NCAA started looking into it on their own - savvy preemptive move. If anything like what its rumored he said is accurate (and he did apologize for something in a statement, so clearly something happened) its a very bad look and there was definitely a risk that tournament officials would've given him the boot. This doesn't feel like be cancelled to me, if feels like actions and consequences. I don't care if he's on the spectrum or not, if he can't control himself he should have to suffer consequence like anyone else would, especially given his track record. I'm not sure its really much of a consequence for Desanto, who knows where he head was at that point anyway, and whether he even wanted to be in the arena. At this point just about everyone out there has dealt with people on the autism spectrum, and it doesn't excuse his behavior.
What a weird weekend for Iowa - they win the title, Marinelli loses and defaults, Lee blows another ACL, and they get out wrestled in the finals by underdog Nittany Lions in two matches most expected them to win. I wasn't there this year to experience the mood in the Arena, but it sure felt different than any NCAA team title that I can remember.
