    Nope. Don't know MIneo or Swafford. Check my post history. I've said who I am before. While I dislike Iowa, the school is completely irrelevant. If it was Poeta doing it to an Illinois wrestler I would have just as much of a problem. The wrestler is irrelevant as well. Pick any redshirt wrestler you want and I'll feel the same.

    Was I in the conversations they had? No. So I can't say 100%. None of us can. But the family along with others, including Hawkeye people, have stated a few times that he was told he was the guy the rest of the way and because of that his redshirt was going to be removed. If Kemerer is back then his redshirt was pulled for no reason and he now loses a season of eligibility for a pointless tournament and maybe a few duals. Can't be anymore clear on why I think it's messed up @MSU158.

    I have only seen you and Minnow pissing and moaning as well as you and Minnow saying other people are pissing and moaning.  Other people, like the ones who matter, haven't actually pissed and moaned publicly.  Juat you two.

    All you both are doing is complicating it for your brother.  Chill out.

    Nope. Alternative is that you don't pull the redshirt. You throw someone else out there that is using a year of eligibility until Kem comes back. Just like they were doing with Brands. I know they have more guys on the roster that fit that description.

    Proof of promise?  Having trouble digging ut up?

    Do you actually know he was lied to?  What exactly was the lie?  Because, without that knowledge, everything nhs has said is spot on and you are simply spinning your wheels. 

    I wonder, are your wheels spinning more due to your dislike of Iowa or the fact you actually care about Swafford?

    Pretty sure it's actually Swatford's brother.  His sentence structure and discussion format are nearly identical.

    So it is ok for a coach to lie to a kid resulting in them losing a season of eligibility. Now that I understand your ethical compass I don't need to continue this conversation. Carry on.

    Okay, Minnow.

    Go ahead and skate around the fact that only Swatford's brother and you said it was promised, with no physical proof any interaction of that nature happened.

  5. The high school kid, and Iowa State commit, Manny Rojas from Detroit Catholic... who just beat Purdue's Nachohouse at Midlands(Matman)... the same Nachohouse who just beat Mikey Labs of Nebraska last night has the 1 seed.  The 2 seed is recent Penn State commit Josh Barr from Davison.

    119 is just as, if not more intriguing.  If you know, you know.

    You’d be perfectly fine if Brands went to Ayala and said Lee is out for the year, we’re going to pull your shirt and then have Lee come back so Ayala loses a year of eligibility?

    There is a massive difference between being lied to and earning your spot. We all know he isn’t going to be Kem, the reason why he was redshirting. Ayala couldn’t beat Lee. He didn’t earn his spot either I guess? It was just given to him.   

    Now, if Kem only wrestled last night because it’s his final match at Carver and doesn’t plan on wrestling postseason, then it sucks, but not a big deal. Brennan will get the rest of the year. 

    I’m advocating for coaches (and wrestlers) to be honest and not screw people over. What his results are going to be are irrelevant. (Does that answer your question). 

    You are wrong.  The results absolutely are relevant as are the potential results.  Did you not watch the dual?  How many decisions that were decided by 2 points or less did the Hawkeys win? Five. 

    Kem is out and Swafford is in: 6 point swing.  19-13.   Just ONE of those other matches go the other way, and it is on to criteria.  Would have been a loss for CHA B1G opener.

    So even from a coaching standpoint the call made 100% sense.  Like it or not the Brands Bros are the highest paid coaches in D1 wrestling for a reason.

    Also, there is no proof other than yourself (Minnow) and Swatford's brother's emotionally fueled Twitter tirade that proves the Brands Bros promised him anything.  No coach in the upper echelon of D1 is going to make that sort of promise to a 12-6 NAIA transfer who took three losses at the watered down Scuffle.  Not if they are serious about trying to contend for a trophy, let alone a title.

    Again: The pinnacle  If he cannot handle it he should have never been in the room to begin with.

    Why does everyone think that the bro is the source? Mineo screenshot a public post. It's not a private conversation. Anyone that had access to the post could've done the same thing. Mineo has been posting stuff from Iowa long before the brother was on the team.

    Calling Minnow 'Mineo' and saying this is precisely something Minnow would say.

    look if the staff told him that he was going to start the rest of the year and then kem came back, that sucks. no real reason to dance around it. maybe he and the family should have more chill for practical reasons but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be upset. coaches make a big deal about loyalty and integrity and nobody has to carry water for them when they don't live up to what they preach.

    This entire post makes a tonne of sense.  They really should have chilled.

    That said I am more thinking this...

    I have a hard time believing they told him he was going to start the rest of the year.  Maybe tonight though

    He just took three losses at the Scuffle.  A watered down Scuffle where there is a high likelihood that none of the wrestlers present in the weight class he wrestled in will medal.

    With all due respect, his brother needs to read the room.

    Not an Iowa fan.  Doesn't matter to me.  Just relaying what I've read so far.  His brother makes it seem like Brands told him he's going, pulled his shirt, and then Kem goes.  Family wasn't aware.  They're upset

    His brother is burning bridges for him and needs to shut his mouth.

    So it  's ok to lie to a kid about his career if that kid isn't going to be a big enough impact.

    That's a great philosophy. Screw kids over if you aren't as good as you want them to be.

    Keep living in dreamland denial and skating around my question.

    This is D1.  The pinnacle of folkstyle wrestling.  You seriously advocating for a participation trophy?

    Based on what the family is saying on twitter and the HR board the coaching staff did him dirty

    You really think he wasn't about to go 0-9 in B1G dual action?  You think the Brands Bros were going to stand idly by and watch that?

    So the kid and others should be perfectly fine losing a year if Kemmerer is able to wrestle the postseason? The plan was to redshirt and be able to battle for the starting spot next season. Then he loses that redshirt to wrestle a few pointless matches. Impact doesn't matter at all. Seems like he has been blatantly lied to and screwed over by the coaching staff. Unless he went the coaching staff and said he would lose his redshirt no matter what happens with Kemerer. Doesn't seem to sound like that at all.

    Pish posh.  Impact matters.  It is the top of the D1 wrestling landscape.  Impact most definitely matters. 

    Folks need to just accept Minnow and his source, who appears to be Swatford's brother, were wrong.

    It is about that time of the year where we can establish the best team of DI wrestlers that grew up in your state.  We all know that Pennsylvania definitely wins this by a landslide in depth, but some states have a chance here and there to win with their best lineups.  How does yours stack up?  Again, since we know PA's depth, let's try to keep it to one guy per weight unless there are major questions about whether he will start due to injury, illness or redshirt.

    Here is Michigan:(per Wrestlestat) plus edited to add Intermat Rankings

    125:  Devin Schroder-Purdue(11-1) ranked 5th

    133:  Rayvon Foley-MSU(17-1) ranked 11th

    141:  Ian Parker-ISU(1-1) ranked N/A or Dresdon Simon-CMU(6-2) ranked 12th Is Parker officially back at 141?

    149:  Kanen Storr-Michigan(3-1) ranked 17th or Josh Edmond-Missouri(10-3) ranked 22nd  Is Storr coming back?

    157:  Anthony Gibson-Northern Illinois(14-7) unranked

    165:  Cameron Amine-Michigan(7-2) ranked 10th

    174:  Logan Massa-Michigan(5-0) ranked 6th

    184:  Myles Amine-Michigan(5-0) ranked 2nd

    197:  Max Dean-PSU(8-0) ranked 2nd

    285:  Trent Hillger-Wisconsin(10-0) ranked 5th


    I would think they have a very solid chance to AA at every weight but 157.  But, for them to be competitive with the top 5 states or so, a lot hinges on the upper weights finishing in the top 4, with Myles Amine and Max Dean wrestling on Saturday Night!


    I might put Gilcher of Indiana at 157 for Michigan.

  13. There are three classifications at the bottom of the bottom.

    Pointless: 3rd worst.  Doesn't pertain to current subject(s).

    Useless: 2nd worst. Of no use due to current state of affairs making it so you aren't useful.

    Worthless.  The worst.  No addition to anything, ever with a typically negative addition to whatever is touched.  I.e. you.

    Pay your damn debts.
