  1. Hard to see Marinelli losing twice to get 5th, but I get that this is absolute worst case. Just curious, who do see beating him in this scenario?
  2. This is excellent investigative work. I'm impressed! Since you're obviously a pro at this internet sleuthing thing, can you please do me a favor? Can you include the high school rankings, high school folkstyle records, and overall freestyle/greco-roman records for each of the Iowa and PSU teams? From your post, it seems pretty obvious that there should be a clear correlation between projected tournament points based on in-season team rankings and the actual final placements at the NCAA championships and I'm curious to see how this might compare to the data I requested from you. Don't get me wrong, I would love to be able to do this work myself but, unfortunately, I'm old, have bad eyesight, bad taste in men, poor attention span, debilitating incontinence, and small fingers so I don't think I'm capable of finding and putting this information together on my own but from your posts it's clear you're an internet research and logical reasoning savant!
  3. Why are you so obsessed with patrolling what a bunch of iowa fans say on their board and then reporting it back here? Yeah, they are undeniably biased but 1, all fans are to varying degrees, 2, as active as that board may be it only represents an insignificant fraction of the opinions of the iowa fan base, and 3, if anyone here was interested in what Iowa fans had to say about their predictions regarding the NCAA tournament outcome they could go over there and read it themselves so your services in that regard are uneeded. Finally, as the floradio gang repeatedly explains to Askren and other listeners weekly, rankings are not predictions. The young PSU squad is projected so far behind Iowa because, even though any reasonable fan can spot their apparent talent, they haven't had the results to warrant a higher ranking. I look forward to your next deliberately dense response
  4. I think some of the hype, outside of publications such as Flo who's business it IS to generate hype whether warranted or not, has been circulated by, as Willie pointed out, fans of opposing teams that want to be able to either say "well duh, they were supposed to win, look at their rankings, hurr durr" if Iowa wins or "what a choke job/Cael spins magic" if they lose. I'm of the opinion that the gap between the top contenders is much closer than currently predicted on paper. PSU, being a fairly young team, has tremendous potential to climb up the rankings after conference weekend. Iowa is pretty much at their peak projection. It is practically a statistical certainty that they will score less than they are currently projected to.
  5. But that is not what you are doing. You're deliberately setting up this false narrative that PSU is some impossible underdog and that it is positively inconceivable, barring a nuclear meltdown on behalf of the Iowa team (or a covid wipeout), that Iowa could possibly lose. It is obvious from your tone, and from your repeated, obnoxious posts in seemingly every thread about how massive a favorite Iowa is and how awful of a collapse it would be were they to lose that you have a very clear agenda in mind with your posts. It is dishonest, and rather trashy. This reminds me of the Gable years. There were seasons that Iowa was not favored to win on paper yet they would go on to pull it out anyways. PSU is still very much in the race. Any honest person that follows the sport (who isn't trying to push forward click-baity hype) knows this.
  6. I was just poking fun at other posters. But fair enough
  7. The misspelling was satire. You must have glossed over the rest of my post if that is your reaction.
  8. Seems like things have changed a bit here in recent times but I recall that just a few years ago this board was hard to read because seemingly every 3rd post had some iteration of: "PSU TRAIN!!!1!!1" and "KALE IS A SAINT SO DONT YOU DARE QUESTION HEEM". I even recall a thread getting completely hijacked because the OP had the audacity to highlight that tOSU had a pretty decent team that year and a few posters just had to immediately chime in with "yeah, but what about NICKLES AND HALLS!!" And, look, I'm not a PSU hater by any means. Taylor, Ruth, Wright, Retherford, Nolf, and Nickal either were or remain some of my favorite wrestlers to watch and I appreciate what Cael and co have done at PSU. Neither am I trying to disparage all PSU fans. Rather, I think these things have a cyclical nature and that folks tend to love to hate those on top, just as the fans of the top program tend to be emboldened to be, ah, a little more nauseating than the norm. Some of that was definitely on display here not too long ago and I'm sure that, if/when a new dynasty arises, that specific fan base will be just as rancorous. P.S. buy my merch
  9. Decatur might be a little stockier than RBY but seeing the 2 side by side I feel like he has a noticeable size disadvantage. Edit: Not like it matters one bit. RBY is leagues better.
  10. I don't think anyone doubts that the precautions are legitimate, but with 157 and 165 out for Iowa, this dual had potential for being veeeeeeery interesting.
  11. They sent out Aaron Cashman. He did ok in the 1st period but then proceeded to lose by techfall. I just don't get it. In a foreshortened season, why take away a marquee match up from your star wrestler? Iowa isn't the only one to do this of course, but I'm getting fed up with it.
  12. I don't doubt that. But has an explanation been given? I don't think it is a stretch to say that Lee is Iowa's #1 star so when he sits out, I think fans have a right to get some sort of answer as to why (especially when he wrestles literally 2 hours later). Maybe this has been addressed in a post match presser. I haven't been able to find it yet.
  13. Having a hard time figuring out the reasoning behind sitting Lee against Purdue. I don't believe it is a duck, but what possible explanation could there be? To protect Lee's 1st period pin streak?? I'm a die-hard hawk fan and even an inner circle member but this... Is not a good look. Has me P.O'd to be frank
  14. Not the best performance from Iowa - Brands and Warner looked sluggish in match 1, Kemmerer in match 2 - yet still scored 30+ points against 2 very solid teams.
