He stuck Blanton off that fireman's carry but it wasn't called, first period I think? We were all there and the U of I arena was going absolutely nuts.

 

Edit: or maybe it was the other way around, and Blanton stuck Benefiel? it's been too many years

Yes, I believe Blanton was down 5-0 early and couldn't quite come back.

PSU is a national school, not more regional like ISU.


Interesting, because as it relates to wrestling ISU has more conference championships, more NCAA individual champions, more Olympians and more Olympic golds and up until this last year had just as many NCAA team championships.

Interestingly, Benefiel gave Blanton his only high school loss.

Though Blanton didn't compete in the large school division until his senior year.

He might have been undefeated then because he Wrestled Benefiel his junior year.

For this particular question, I have to believe that Metcalf was too relentless and physical for Zain. So I think Metcalf would win.

ISU was a great team, WAS being the operative word.
