How about that their fans often resort to addressing nonexistent criticisms about their program so they can feel smart?

They remind us of our own shortcomings and inadequacies?

The only thing that bothered me was the constant references to God and Jesus after winning. What's that say about the guy that just lost...he's cursed or something?

They are on top of the heap.  Its just that simple.  I can remember when OSU were the bad guys, and Iowa before that.

1.  Not enough emphasis on freestyle hurts the longterm prospects of athletes following their unpaid folkstyle careers.  

 

This is still TBD..I hope the lesson will be learned from Taylor and the couple years it took him transition to start emphasizing freestyle day 1.  Varner also had great success internationally. Molinaro probably did about as well as he could have given the limitations of his wrestling style. Still, I'm a bit worried that all the talent goes to PSU given Cael's dislike of the style. I hope that he starts to take the approach with his elite talents (Hall, Nolf, Retherford, Nickal) that Ryan does with Snyder.

When they inevitably are no longer at the top of the hill, their fans will become like the bitter Iowa fans longing for past glory - throwing dirty looks at anyone cheering for an opponent, leaving the arena en masse when their last guy of the round is done, and claiming everyone hates them when the truth is they're not good enough to hate anymore.

Unfortunately dominance will bring hatred much like it did with Iowas dominance. Iowas persona during that of course never helps, but winning alone and dominating over the field will give people motivation to root against them. Comes with the territory. Even as clean cut PSU is, the masses outside their fan base will boo and cheer against them inevitable sadly.

So you're basically hating on them for things that they haven't done yet? Hmmm....

Andrew Long, clean cut?

You can't be serious.

I've always had a hard time with the God thing too.  I can see thanking God but to assume that God helps you win also has to assume God worked against the other guy.  And if God cared that much about sports why did he let Lance Armstrong or A-Fraud all of the success they had?

LaVallie did a long prayer mat-side before his match. Must have chosen the wrong god.

So what you're saying is that God is pro steroids?
