Great to see the enthusiasm for Rutgers wrestling but I can do without the tongue out, muscle posing of Lewis and Deluca after your team just got walloped. Call me old school, but I did not like the look. 

 

Great atmosphere and great turn out for Rutgers. They have done an amazing job.

I don't know if he was pinned or not but I'm going to awesome the ref had a better view than you, stp.  DuLuca throws were nice but Hayes can't be getting thrown like that if he wants to be an AA.

I agree. I hate when wrestlers showboat after a match they're excepted or supposed to win. It's one thing to celebrate after pulling off an upset. It's another to gloat about a match where you were a huge favorite.

Both 149 and 165 were upset wins by Rutgers

Hayes has wins over All-Americans Kolodzik and Thomsen this year. His only loss is to Heilmann, who is having a great season. DeLuca's win was a huge upset. I'm glad he celebrated in front of the home crowd. It's good that DeLuca made a big deal out of his win, which was, in fact, a big deal.

The ref did have a better view but in no way, is more awesome than me.

Didn't notice I typed awesome instead of assume.  You might be right about the awesome part, can't make that call.

Knees in front of the toes, always helps your throws!

 

Regarding DeLuca and a thread from the HS Forum (Wrestling Prep), DeLuca spent a lot of time in San Jose at Carolyn's old facility when he was in HS.  He's been a lot of places since, but really seems at home in Piscataway.


I like NIke but wait a minute, the sport supports so put some money in it

True dat. Don't think he ever had deluca at 45 degrees either. Final should have been something like 12-2 deluca.

Let me further clarify.

Yes those were upset, but I was speaking in general. Also by upset I ment like when you beat a top number 1 ranked type guy. The number 15 ranked guy beating the number 11th ranked guy imo is nothing to get overly excited about.

Yea and it annoyed me then too.

I also didn't care of Mark Hall's superman pose after winning NCAA's.

I don't think that 165 was an upset at all. Lewis's two losses are to Marinelli. Both Lewis and Campbell have wins over Valencia. All of these guys are AA contenders, but are hardly separated by rankings. Plus, Lewis's international experience is remarkable. 

 

I'm a Buckeye fan, but I was thoroughly amused by DeLuca. The tongue thing was a little weird, given that the match was still on, but he went for broke twice and won it in very exciting fashion. If a top ranked guy did that while whooping on a lower guy, I'd understand the criticism. But when a guy comes from behind like that after taking a couple of risks, I'm inclined to celebrate for him and certainly don't hold his expression of excitement against him.

You guys seem like a ton of fun at parties.  I celebrate more after beating my brother at pick up basketball.  Don't want them to celebrate?  Beat them.

All for celebrations when the match is OVER.  Sticking your tongue out like that with the match still going is sort of like holding your little brother down on the ground and dangling that spit rope over his face!
