Oklahoma State VS Iowa thread

Recommended Posts

One of the funniest disagreements in the history of this board was when Flying Tiger and either Vak or Dr Gonzo, I think it was, said they’d meet up to settle things on the mat and wrestle it out. Then someone asked about weights and it turned out one was like a 125er and the other a Hwt and everyone was like, “... well, damn” lol.

This either translates poorly or you to be there...

These boards and this thread could be a lot worse. Just watch the news. Any news. But they could be a lot better, especially if people stopped being so outraged by every little statement they don’t like.
 

The issue with the outrage is that for every original comment there’s about twenty-five replies along the lines of “I can’t believe you said Elvis is King. That’s just retarded.” Followed by “stop trolling, your comments always suck and I never said Elvis is King. I said he’s royalty. Get a dictionary dumbtard.”

People consistently spend half an hour complaining that they can’t stand such and such pointless post, as if there’s some point to that. So we all have to sift through pages and pages of nonsense just to find out why precisely Spencer Lee fades in the third period.

Iowa fans. 

He got tossed for mouthing with the police, but the police were called to that spot because he was mouthing off towards the Ok State athletes and coaches. And in a very derogatory way. Fans can and do go TOO FAR. Hence the police action. Those actions are not defensible. 

I have never owned Iowa gear.  I have owned Penn State gear.   I have been to multiple Penn State coaches clinics.  I have been to a Cael coaching clinic.  As a New Yorker I always cheered for NY greats who wrestled for the Lions, starting with Destefanis, Prescott, John Lange, Kerry McCoy, and now Tupac.  (Do you even know of  anyone who wrestled for PSU prior to Cael's regime?)I was briefly coached by a PSU all-American in college.   For years I wanted to see an East Coast team break through and win nationals.  

I am a fan of Iowa's multiple individuals on Iowa's team, and I have had positive dealings with Tom and Terry but I do think they take things bit far during matches at times.

I do not think I can be classified as an "Iowa fan."  I started liking this current group when Spencer Lee arrived on the scene.

I still think that it was a bad look for RBY and apparently Hall to be getting mouthy with the crowd.  Apparently PSU homer Dernlan agrees with me.  Don't you think a PSU coach should have been keeping an eye on the situation?  Dernlan said there is usually a coach policing the bench area.  Fans can be jerks, indeed, but student athletes should ignore it... and their coaches should keep an eye on the situation.

If the guy was over the line, then he should be kicked out.  Same goes for obnoxious PSU fans.

Well stated.

Folks definitely need to, "sack up" and your second paragraph includes damn near every poster on here with big numbers.  Every once in awhile folks need to step back and STFU!

It was a good dual I thought.  I Iowa is just a very tough dual meet team this year, I am hoping they are a very tough tournament team but that remains to be seen.  I was very impressed with as usual Lee and Kemmerer but really glad that Lugo opened it up against the very tough Boo.  Sheets surprised me and Whittlake is very good and will be a tough out at NCAA's/

I thought WIttlake did JUST enough to avoid it with those anklepick attempts.  With Marinelli never really getting in deep until the third, I think it was fair not to call him.  It was close, though.

He did do a really nice job of holding his ground, but I think when the shot differential is so high, you have to hit him at least once.

He did what he could. If he would have committed to something too much he was going to get taken down. Just overmatched physically at this point.

Stop lumping ALL Iowa fans into one.  One fan got booted for mouthing off, the rest of the Iowa fans around him cheered as he was escorted out.  No one liked his attitude and please stop pretending that PSU fans don't do the same thing.  Watch any sporting event including a wrestling meet hosted by PSU and you will see fans yelling at coaches AND athletes.

I am not lumping all Iowa fans into one. Try reading the threads and comprehending them. I actually complimented the Iowa fans for their reaction to the one j-o the police had to cart off.

Yep I agree. I've been really low on Wittlake the last couple years, but he's changed my mind. At the very least, he's going to be a pain for the top guys to wrestle because of his defense. Some nice potential upside, though I don't know how long he can hold 165 and whether his style will translate well up a weight class where he might not be as powerful.

And then lumped us all in together when you said "your fans".  Nope, just one fan did that.

I miss the Dr.  He was awesome.  The way he used "tigsy" always put a smile on my face!

I'm not sure that's really much of an issue. Seems to me that boys that move up tend to thrive. Look at Kemmerer. Chandler Rogers did pretty well at 174, and even 184 I believe. It's pretty awesome not having to mind the diet and just concentrate on wrestling.

Chad Mendes comes to mind. Low AA at 125. Finalist at 141
