  1. This post couldn’t be further from the truth about being at full strength...Even if RBY wins via, major and Iowa doesn’t lose the team point...Thats 3 less points from Iowa, increasing their margin of victory to 5. Max Murin/Jayden Eierman didn’t wrestle at 141 so Nick Lee teaches their backup. Eierman beats Lee but even Murin keeps it to at worst a major loss to Lee, increasing Iowa’s lead by more. And your point about Cassar...he’s retired from college wrestling so sorry to say, but you’re stuck with. Nevills for at least one more year. To say Iowa wins this dual no problem is ignorant.
  2. Mekhi Lewis may be one of the most athletic wrestlers in DI with incredible potential. He mentioned that he "didn't want to wrestle freestyle" in his post-match interview, but his coach made him...resulting in a Junior World Gold. This kid has incredible potential, and I am excited to see him develop both in college and on the world level.
  3. I do not understand this argument... I agree that the non-takedown by Hidlay early on in the match should have been called a takedown. However, just because adding 2 points to Hidlay's total means he wins 4-3 doesn't mean Nolf lost the match. Having seen Nolf respond to being taken down, chances are he rebounds and gets a takedown or two himself to still win the match. And that near takedown at the end of the match was not a takedown, so to say that Nolf "knows he lost that semi match" is a little ignorant. In my opinion, if Nolf gives up that takedown early on and it's called, it lights a fire under him and he wins by more than 1...But I am not out here saying "Nolf knows he really won by more." P.S. I am about as far from a PSU fan as it gets.

  5. So...if Cassar gets a 6th and a 7th year, Steveson's dreams of a 4x NCAA Champion (which have already been derailed) become a 3-year battle with PSU. Figures that PSU miraculously pulls this off and has the chance of having a HWT win a title during his 5th, 6th and 7th years... Not saying this will happen, but the young guys at this weight will close the gap, and it does not seem like Cassar is going away... He mentioned he will consider staying since he has FS goals as well, but he is not making this Olympic team with Gwiz there so he might as well try for 2-more titles. Wouldn't that be crazy? I bet there has never been a 4-year back-up who was also a 3x NCAA champ...
  6. I am not sure if anyone caught it during Cassar's post-finals interview, but he was asked about taking a 6th and potentially 7th year. Can anyone shed light on the possibility of a 7th year? It's my understanding that he can get a 6th year as a result of a medical redshirt, and it seems like he "took another year off" due to financial and personal reasons. Does this mean that Cassar has both a year of eligibility and the ability to petition for the medical year? Any insight on this would be great.
  7. Don't forget Tariq Wilson AA'd in 2018 but fell a match short in 2019...makes 133 an even tougher weight class unless he moves up to 141, which he may since he is pretty tall.
