Assad vs Brands

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the reason Brands isn't starting @ 184 is because Assad has beaten him in the Iowa team competition? Reason I ask is because Assad is ranked 18 (that seems very low) and Brands really took it to Brooks at last year's Big Ten Championships. Brooks took two injury timeouts, greatly stunting the momentum Brands had pummeling him. Almost certainly Brands would have won that match if the action hadn't been stopped twice to give Brooks time to recover. Brooks is a great wrestler, btw. I was very surprised by what he did to my fellow Jersey boy Poz last week.

As mentioned, Brooks basically fell on the mercy of the ref twice to stop the match in the midst of the competition, greatly stunting the momentum Brands had in pummeling him. The stoppages allowed Brooks to recover and get his wits about him, whereas if the action had been continuous from the get go, most likely he would have lost. Brands was bullying him and knew it too because he wouldn't shake Brook's hand afterwards.

If you remember correctly it was Brands sucking wind at the end of the match.  If anything those two stoppages helped him more. Also, why are you bringing Brooks into your original post?  You do remember Brands went 1-2 at NCAA's and got majored by Devin Kane.  Is your post about Aaron Brooks or Abe Assad?

The post is straightforward and clear in querying whether anyone has information on whether Assad defeated Brands for Iowa's starting position. I would like to see Brands get another crack at Brooks since Brooks had the match stopped twice when Brands was pummeling him.

Is there going to be another wrestle off between Brands and Assad for 184, or is Iowa going with Assad for the rest of this season?

I thought brands had a shoulder injury and that’s why Assad is now starting,  I could be wrong 

I heard Tommy John surgery. But either way it sounds like it’s his Armand that he’s done

Besides Brands not being a 184 pounder and also being injured?
