Penn State @ Rutgers..2pm..BTN

Recommended Posts

Whatever.  He did it on purpose, Rutgers seems to have gotten orders for this dual and they're carrying them out.  Nolf has been in that position tons of times but Van Brill knew he was outclassed so he wrenched his knee.  PSU may be dominant but they aren't dirty.

 

No, he didn't.  The precipitating event was actually Nolf himself exacerbating the angle of the knee as he leaned into van Brill.

Put yourself in his spot, he didn't have to turn it like that.  Imagine if PSU guys did that every time they had a chance?

 

He did not turn anything, watch the replay. Nolf put the extra pressure on himself.

DeLuca was dirty. He came close to being disqualified - Retherford showed a lot of class by keeping his cool. However, Nolf was just an unfortunate accident.

Oh man that is not cool. It is wrestling and it was an injury, unfortunate yes, dirty? No.

It'd be a shame if Nolf is out for the rest of the season, but injuries are a reality for every team. I think even with Nolf out, Penn State still has a good shot at the National Title.

In wrestling you have to have trust and respect between opponents.  There are times in every match where you could injure your opponent but you don't do it.  I've seen Nolf in that spot countless times and he's always been fine.  There is no way anybody would voluntarily tear their knee up, you'd need some help.
