  1. Daton Fix, 4 time runner-up
  2. who were the offenders? and if you don't want to get into all that, are they still active at least?
  3. You don't need a sub to listen to the podcast. You can find episodes on most podcast platforms (Spotify, apple podcasts, stitcher, etc). But, to your request: NIL "pay-to-play" deals are definitely being thrown around for transfers and recruits. Pendleton even mentions a wrestler he was trying to recruit that mentioned wanting to be a freshman AA so that he could get them fat stacks... I'll have to relisten to this part to get the details 100% but coach did say he lost interest in that recruit after that comment. No one is sure about the actual $$$ numbers surrounding the rumoured deals He's not worried about his own team getting poached. He believes the team culture is strong enough to retain the wrestlers that have bought in. One of the Willits has graduated but sounds like they haven't decided on whether to return for another year or not. No mention of Larry Lee Coach likes that his wrestlers can sell merch and earn some dough. To that end, he supports the original spirit of the NIL proposal He's worried that the funding that boosters will start funneling towards recruits and transfers will take away from operating budgets, therefore hurting most programs He had his team take 10 days off in October so that they wouldn't burn out. There's a bit more that was discussed but those are the quick highlights. I encourage you to listen to the full interview! If you don't want to mess with podcast apps you can always find the episodes on youtube
  4. I refuse to believe anything that Pat Mineo puts out there, cuz he's icky. But if these wild rumours prove to be true (or at least get more substantial evidence), that's even more icky. In that case, what should I, as a fan of the program, do? Stop watching wrestling? Those last 2 sentences arent supposed to be read as dismissive. This whole saga makes me deeply uncomfortable
  5. This is my optimistic outlook as well so I could have clarified my post and said that I definitely expect an improvement from Iowa, just not in any meaningful way to close the gap with PSU significantly. At this point in time.
  6. I dig the optimism in this thread but we are less than a month after watching PSU scoring 130 while Iowa struggled to reach 90. Now, having lost a bunch of hammers (albeit most limited by injuries), they're going to do better? Perhaps but I wouldn't hold my breath
  7. Other than Askren's tweet, is there any evidence for the claim that Real Woods got crazy money to come to Iowa? I'm not saying it's impossible but it's hard to believe that a niche sport program, even one as well funded as Iowa, has 6 figures to throw around on an athlete who, at this point, looks more likely to place 4thish than make it to the finals. Feels like that money would be better spent on some quality senior athletes, imo
  8. Yes but let's tank the seed to 8 to make it more juicy. I know it sounds crazy but here's the underlying kernel: when PSU guys make it to the semi's, they place very high (insert mind_blown.jpeg) but when they don't make it to the semi's, they generally don't place high if at all :0 so if a PSU wrestler hits a top opponent in the quarters that they normally wouldn't hit until semi's, maybe they don't win that match and consequently don't place as high? I get it, sounds like a stretch but it hasn't been tried before so who's to say conclusively that this strategy bears no merit at all? Not I. I will personally hand deliver a cinnamon roll to whichever top level wrestler, who, projected to get the 1 or 2 seed next year, purposefully tanks at conferences and subsequently defeats a PSU wrestler that was otherwise on their way to the semi's.
  9. O'Toole to Iowa? I would eat a shoe I'm not sure if there's a single transfer that could put Iowa in contention with PSU. The gap appears too wide at this point with all the unproven wrestlers stepping in. I don't even know who their 157 will be!
