No, that is the 3 of the 14 which was not. 

I said 11 points were scored off of scrubs. 

Bucks scored 6 on the pin of Murin. The other two Bucks were a TF 5 and a decision 3,  5+3=8, not 11. Or is this some new math the kids are learning?

Yeah... that new gen math is stupid AF.

After home schooling the end of last year my kiddos, who are spectacular mathematicians as it is for their age, were astonished that math doesn't have to be complicated.

I received an email from their teachers at the start of this current school year asking why I had 'taught' them a different way to do math.  My response was something along the lines of 'Math is math.  Quit trying to complicate it.'  The teachers were not impressed and explained that they are told what method of teaching is required by the state board... yada yada.  It's completely bat$HlT man.

What is wrong with:
    96
x  14
  384
+960
1344

96x14=1344

Quick.  Easy.  Simple.

Yeah, I know they have some guys but they have not been great team wise in the extra matches. I really like Kennedy, but not seeing a lot of others. Not enough anyway. I can write down 4 years worth of PSU line ups that will dominate the guys I am seeing. 

I, too, would focus on two years from now when interjecting PSU for some reason into a thread that has nothing to do with them.

They sent out Aaron Cashman. He did ok in the 1st period but then proceeded to lose by techfall. I just don't get it. In a foreshortened season, why take away a marquee match up from your star wrestler? Iowa isn't the only one to do this of course, but I'm getting fed up with it.

Plus Pariott didn't wrestle Murin.  Plus Coleman didn't wrestle Young.  Yes, there are legit reasons often but I'm so incredibly sick and tired of the fact that the marquee matches in duals frequently don't happen.  It's absolutely terrible for the sport.   I hate to say it and it causes a lot problems, but I think you have to seed a team for conference tournaments so people stop missing top matchups.  Otherwise this spot becomes more and more of a "only NCAAs matter" sport.  It sucks and as a fan I'm fed up...

Young didn't wrestle Coleman because Young was in the COVID protocol.

What marquee match ups were we cheated out of?

As for the dual as a whole:

125:  Lee dominated an inferior opponent.

133:  Desanto samesies

141:  Eierman did a great job, scoring the only TD against a freestyle specialist, and then quickly pinning him once getting on top.

149:  Sasso is going to be a tough match up for Murin any time they wrestle, bottom line.  Murin will need to either finish above the waist like Lugo did, or hit a double, because singles ain't going to cut it.  I'd rather not have Murin see him at NCAAs.

157:  Reyna's got some interesting skills, but clearly outsidzed by Cleary

165:  Smith just dominated Joe Kelly, the back up to the back up.

174:  Romero seemed content to just lose a regular decision.

184:  Brands is back down to earth, he's not shooting, just hoping he can get go-behinds.  Cost him in the Purdue match.  He took one committed shot against Jordan and cashed it in, but still not enough activity.

197:  Warner looked great against Singeltary.  Earlier on I assumed he gassed hard against Purdue and I thought "same old Warner" but reqatching the match, you can see that he got headbutted several times, including one big one right at the end of the second period, so I think it was more a result of that.  I'm still glad that this is a weak weight, because Warner's mental game is not the best.

HW:  Cass is just awesome...which just shows how insanely good Gable Steveson is.

Did you read my second sentence?  My beef isn't with any individual match but the overall trend...

Your second sentence was "Plus Coleman didn't wrestle Young."

Either way, I understand that you were actually referring to next sentence after that, but I think it's hard to lump Coleman-Young in with the others, including Lee-Schroder, because Young was not medically allowed to wrestle.  The other matches, I agree, I don't like it.

Fine I can't count...   I can only say so many times it's not about any individual match, there's very likely a legit reason for any of them.  But this sport gets worse and worse to follow during dual season, no two ways about it.   I mean even something inconsequential like Malik vs Spencer didn't happen, it sucks.  It just sucks

Is there any other kind as regards Lee?

Fair, not given the current construction of the weight, though I'm interested to see him vs. Ragusin.  Obviously Suriano if he makes his rumored return and goes 125.  But right now, I agree there isn't anybody that seems likely to give Lee a credible match at 125.

Some context for Eierman-Echemendia.

 

Says he don't play when all he does in tough matches is flop.

If his knee is that messed up hang it up until next year.  Grabbing his knee and flopping about like a lake perch isn't befitting of someone who is supposed to be of his caliber.

I really thought it was his ankle that gave out, but there was probably also some weakness of the knee that was challenged by the turn.

But as far as looking badly injured, Etch-a-sketchy has nothing on the VTech heavy.  He appeared to be in so much pain Friday night that I thought there was a very serious injury.  Then he regained his composure and wrestled another 6 minutes.  I'm not making fun of him either; if you saw the match, you know what I am talking about.

I did.  I was a little more than annoyed when Catka didn't take the mat.  I'm a big fan of Catka.  He needs all the mat time he can get if he's to be as good as he can be.

Yep, he clearly grabbed his ankle initially, then moved to the knee.

Eierman should have taken his time with him. That was way too quick.

I’m interested in seeing what Lee and Rivera do to him, provided he’s the starter still. Maybe a little bow and arrow action?

You could say this about any team. How did PSU's 149 and 197 pounders do against indiana and NW?

Right...aside from a couple of weights, traditionally over the last decade...PSU's backups have been very underwhelming but Tbar is always trying to spin some sort of stupid narrative.

Lee is making D1 Big 10 look like he is wrestling high school league matches.

LOL at you. You seriously have some kind of derangement syndrome. 

The point is simple, man. It isn't only that their backups are a big drop off, it is also that they about to soon graduate guys that will force these same back ups into their starting line up.

You are right that PSU's back ups also, depending on weight, were a big drop off. The difference is that PSU never had a projected line up that looked like they'd suffer a large drop off. That is the point. If you want to continue ruining your day because someone noticed this fact, have at it.
