Spencer Lee - a Hawkeye you can root for.

Recommended Posts

Wrestles with passion and skill - but without any of the cheap crap we see from the rest of his teammates.

 

His post-match interviews are very "un-hawkeye" like.  Last night after the Semis - was incredible.  Compare that to the nonsense we normally hear from them.

Cory Clark and Sammie Brooks. Both great guys.

You think Kemmerer is cheap? Maybe he really tried to hurt Nolf's knee instead of gently getting out of a potentially dangerous situation? Sorenson ?

The Hawkeyes got a game buster there.  In the pool world, we would say hez got danuts.  I see great improvement, and just a freakishly great freshman.  He wrestles the way it's supposed to be done.  I've pulled for a few Hawks, but back in the day you just sat back and admired them, there was just nothing else you could do.  That's where Cael's boys are at now.  (Note to posters, when the words World Champion are part of your resume, you are in extremely rare air)

IF he wins, he should get MOW over Zain (even if Zain wins by fall in the final), IMart and Snyder/Coon tonight, right? Lee has bulldozed his way through the bracket thus far, TF - TF - pin - pin, coming from a #3 seed placement. Doesn't get more outstanding than that.

Kemmerer is one of the classiest guys out there. He’s been like that since I first met him as a freshman in HS. A true role model on the mat and in the classroom (picked Iowa over Harvard, among other options).

No. No he didn’t. He picked Iowa over Harvard?

Thanks for pointing this out. Amazing.

In a loaded weight class where a returning AA doesn't make the podium.

Which teammates are guilty of cheap crap?

Lee and Kem are all class. So are NaTo, Pletcher and Snyder. I don't get to hear much from the other Buckeyes which is always a good sign that they too are all class. 

After Pletcher beat Brock in a consi-semi match with absolutely zero bad blood he walked by the OkState corner and waved and told them 'bye-bye'.  These are intense men in intense situations and they don't always act like choir boys.  That doesn't make them bad guys, but it's hilarious how the same stuff is received by fans depending on whether the guy who did it was wearing an Iowa singlet.

Yep even Pletcher with his 12 year old choir boy look decided to throw a little salt on the wound. Many people here just like to hate on Iowa, I see other teams do worse or similar and no mention. Rutgers got that New Jersey bad boy act at times .....What Desanto did is greater than anything the entire Hawkeye roster did the last 2 years!

There was zero wrong with what Pletcher did.  There wasn't even anything questionable or borderline about it.  

 

But if an Iowa guy did it he'd be the worst and it would be laid at Brands' feet.
