  1. I still have no idea what Dennis was doing. No stall calls with 10 seconds left. Run.
  2. Marcus Cisero said: Donny - to the contrary, I'm an Iowa fan - always have been especially during the last few years with all the PA kids filling the roster. It's been fun watching Spencer both in HS and college, I like him and admire his dominance but there are things that prevent me from praising him at the same level like so many do on this board. You're a clown lol
  3. Snyder was competing with Zain Retherford and Alex Dieringer for the Hodge in 16-17, not Kollin Moore. I am almost certain that if Zahid hadn't gotten in trouble, he would have been awarded this year's Hodge with the current circumstances. You can't compare Snyder's years to 2019-2020, because there was Spencer/Zahid and then a big drop off in terms of eligible Hodge candidates.
  4. And of course the typical Iowa haters are all over this trying to come up with every argument to not give the most dominate wrestler award to the most dominant wrestler lol.
  5. Interesting assumption, but Kemerer is 23 and won't turn 24 until December. Compare that to Daton Fix who will be 26 if/when he finishes out his NCAA eligibility.
  6. No, you said, "Spencer is special, but Uetake was a WC before his Jr year in college." I am just saying that if Spencer were to win in Tokyo this summer, he would be the same age Uetake was when he won his first WC, so the year they were each in school would be irrelevant
  7. Uetake was a 21 year old sophomore at Okie State and was 21 years and 10 months when he won his first WC/Olympic gold. If Spencer qualifies for Tokyo this summer, he will be almost the same age (21 years and 9 months)
  8. You're questioning a dude, who you apparently "support" who has outscored his last 7 opponents 110-2, and I am the mess? LOL gotcha
  9. If they are going to enforce these rules, the first should be a warning and the second should be an ejection (i.e. coach has to watch the rest of the dual from the locker room). Taking points away from the team isn't the answer.
  10. I get it and I wasn't directing any of that towards you specifically. Obviously, it would be great and exciting to see more pins, but in the 25+ years I have been around wrestling, I have never heard of another wrestler being questioned for having too many tech falls lol
  11. Come on! He's has 8 TF's and 3 pins on 12 matches with 100% bonus. He's wrestled one full match all year, which was a dominating major. Only people who hate Iowa would question what's wrong with him lol
  12. Keep telling yourself that. If he wrestled for PSU, you wouldn't be saying a damn thing.
  13. The man has wrestled 12 matches with 8 TF's, 3 pins, 100% bonus and people are criticizing lol. The fact is if he didn't have IOWA on his singlet, there would never be a thread on this.
  14. He's only wrestled 11 matches so far this season. He would be over 30% but not by much
  15. You do realize DeSanto and RBY haven't wrestled since the NCAA match everyone is discussing, right? Why don't you wait until tomorrow before you start with the idiotic takes
  16. So completely eliminating your own offense to try and stop your opponent's offense is brilliant wrestling? LOL
  17. The Iowa hate is back in full force and I love it!!
  18. I am going to have Rhythm Of The Night stuck in my head all weekend!
  19. Is Rivera hurt or just not wrestling? I was looking forward to this match
  20. As an Iowa fan, it's obviously disappointing. I would have just liked to see him sit the whole tournament out, but in his defense, he did just beat two national champions last weekend. It sucks for the fans, but he has nothing to prove beating Pat Glory right now. Something he has already done numerous times.
  21. You can only beat the guys they put in front of you, and Spencer just won in 28 seconds. Wow, Suriano is dominating Shelton Mack 1-0 in the 2nd!!
  22. Meanwhile, the #1 seed is beating the great Daniel Deshzer 3-0 in the second period. Being butt hurt is never a good look, man
  23. LOL, no. David Carr has wrestled 9 NCAA matches outside of his RS year. He has also never beaten Jason Nolf (3x NCAA champ) or Imar (2x NCAA champ). I understand Carr just won a Junior World title at 20 years old, but Spencer had two of those before he was 18. He is also 2 for 2 on NCAA titles, including beating Suriano in the finals. Suriano has less NCAA titles than Spencer, and has a couple of decent freestyle wins recently (Colon, Nashon, etc). I am not saying Lee should or shouldn't be the #1 seed, and I understand NCAA results don't mean much in freestyle, but I had to point out what an absolutely horrible comparison you made.
  24. The OP said "the guy is an amazing coach but he is SO boring when it comes to his public presence." He never mentioned anything about PSU needing a new coach. That was you being defensive. Now that we've confirmed that you actually know what charismatic means. Do you think Tom Brands is more charismatic than Cael?
  25. I realize who the OP is but do you know what charismatic means?
