    Antitroll2828 got a reaction from BLT in So can Iowa stop destroying Lee future now?   
    Being a head wrestling coach isn’t about just winning championships, it’s about setting up your guys up to have successful lives on and off the mat, and what’s happening with Spencer is the opposite, they are very clearly sacrificing Spencers long term health for the short term success of winning a team title.

    Now that brands and Iowa have their team title can they stop ruining Spencer Lee...he was already wrestling on one torn acl for years and now he’s pushing through a second, and while I appreciate his dedication to the team, someone needs to be an adult in this program and tell him to get healed up.. it’s ridiculous, the man has Olympic gold potential but at this rate he ll have arthritis in both knees by the time he’s 25 .
    Lee really has the potential to do something few wrestlers have ever done for team usa but the brands bro couldn’t seem to care less. They have complete tunnel vision on the the college program , probably to the fault of their wrestlers health ..
    I would much rather see Spencer win 2-3 world titles and Olympic gold than watch him tilt his way through another weak 125 field with no knees , and then be medically screwed the rest of his life 
    Does anyone from Iowa administration, or athletic department , or Dan gable himself see that Lee interview last night and ask the brand “what the hell are you doing”, ruining one of the best team USA prospects in a long time , just so Iowa can win 1 team title in a decade? With injuries like this someone needs to be an adult and tell Spencer to take care of his body, he only gets one, but from the interview last night I’m guessing brands whole attitude he’s passing on to Lee is win at all costs 
    hope Lee can finally get his body right before long term damage starts to set in

    The questions posed by this topic are not unreasonable. Sadly I thought the same thing after seeing his wrenching interview.
    In the B1G documentary on Spencer a couple weeks ago, there was all this waxing about how Brands would always do right by the individual wrestler, and Spencer specifically, and that they are preparing Olympic and World champions, not mere NCAA champions. Is that really what happened here?  Are those mere words? Here we are, a couple weeks from Olympic qualifiers, and Spencer is wrestling on not one but two unhealed knees. What has Iowa done to Spencer’s Olympic dreams?
    Saying “we left it up to Spencer, we didn’t force him” is a cop out. Spencer is a warrior. You ask him to march through a wall, he will say point the way coach. He needs a coach that is looking out for his best interests, because Spencer will ALWAYS choose to wrestle. Who in the program is telling him when to stop? Is there anyone there who will make a decision that aids Spencer’s international ambitions at the expense of Iowa... or is that all just marketing stuff for recruiting?
    It’s hard to say where the plug should have been pulled. Before the season, when one knee wasn’t healed enough to wrestle on? After B1Gs, when the other knee was injured? 
    Not sure. All we can say with confidence after Spencer’s post match interview is that he has two bad unhealed knees on the eve of Olympic trials, which he was wrestling on for Iowa through yesterday. How can anyone think that is OK?
    Hope the Brands bros really enjoy that title.

    Which is exactly why as a coach you have to firmly tell him, it’s literally one of the main jobs as a wrestling coach to make sure your athletes don’t over do it, some times its chasing a guy out of the room and telling him to not overtrain (like both Cael and Goodale had to do with suriano) or a coach telling a kid he’s cutting too much weight and it’s time to move up, like Alvarez this year for Rutgers or the decision manning made with Lovett this year ..and sometimes it’s telling your once in a lifetime, generational talent to let his body heal bc has potential to be the best wrestler in the world not just the best wrestler in college wrestling

    He gave an interview with Flo years ago that he has an issue with wrestling back. Since he was a kid he has a hard time bouncing back from loses and said when he came back for 3rd in 2019 was one of his proudest accomplishments , he’s a semi slide guy so I wouldn’t put to much into his general attitude today, he’s been looking like that in wrestlebacks since high school
