Which Iowa combo will go down as the best 125 and 133 pair in recent Iowa history?  Which combo would win if they squared off against each other?

2019 Lee/DeSanto

2017 Gilman/Clark

2012 McDonough/Ramos

 

Idk that I would pick them but are Lee and Desanto the first to both be ranked #1 at the same time?

You could anchor the first two down and say "Lee/Desanto/Murin" and still be right. 

Come to think of it, when is the last time Iowa had a better lineup? 

Probably 2010.

125:  McDonough

133:  Dennis

141:  Montell Marion

149:  Metcalf

157:  Kerr

165:  Morningstar

174:  Borschel

184:  Keddy

197:  Beatty

HW:  Erekson

Honestly? Gut instinct says 2019 > 2010.

125 Strittmatter and 133 Juergens was a pretty nice combo for the two years Strittmatter was at Iowa. In 2000 they were both seeded 1st, Strittmatter placed 3rd, Juergens won it. 2001 they both wrestled to seed, Strittmatter placing 2nd to Abas and Juergens repeating as champ.

I think Metcalf is getting at least a major.  Also there are some legitimately great toss ups here at 125, 133, and 174, but notably I think Erekson beats Cass.

I had Metcalf with the major initially, but went and looked at Lugo's stats.  He's given up bonus 1 time in his entire career, and that was a pin vs. Retherford his freshman season.  In a dual scenario he knows he's going out there to keep it within 7... I think he can do that. And I was never a big Erekson fan.  

Anyway, point stands that it's incredibly close between the two lineups.  Iowa scored 134.5 in 2010... that's a really high mark but within the realm of possibility this year.

It was the year they were going for ten in a row. Billy Kelly from Iowa St pinned him with a spladle. You can probably find on YouTube.

I thought close decision or high major there as well. Don't see it in between, but Lugo is the faster and better athlete there.
