I'll nominate JTTS. Here's an effort of his, which was written after the 2002 NCAA's:

 

[highlight=#fafafa]“THE IOWA FAN”[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]Sung to the tune of "The Piano Man" by Billy Joel [/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]It’s 9 o’clock on a Saturday[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]We’re live in upstate New York[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Iowa’s in 4th place and falling[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Time to stick them with a fork[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]Look over there, it's Mike Zadick[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]I’ve heard he's never merciful[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Just went to his back seven times[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Against the dreaded Jake Percival[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]So sing us a song, you’re the Iowa fan[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]It’s hard for you to be merry[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]No one thinks the Fulsaas twins[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Are the next coming of Tom and Terry[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]Jessman Smith is a friend of mine[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Just got stuck by Rob Rohn[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]He’s sitting next to Mocco[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Who’s eating a taco[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]While his dad scoops him an ice cream cone[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]No Hawk All American at 174[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]You have the overrated Tyler[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Trey Clark beat Cael?[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]He’d probably get stuck by Cyler.[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]So sing us a song, you’re the Iowa fan[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]This pain, how do we dull it?[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Let’s remember Royce Alger[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]And that other guy with the mullet[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]And Moore is practicing bridging[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]He always goes to his back[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Opposing wrestlers are now excited[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]To wrestle the gold and black[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]Got nothing from 157 or 165[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]No AA status for Luke[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]I just saw old Dan Gable[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Looks like he’s going to puke[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]During the awards ceremony[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Our guys are in street clothes and loafers[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]You can’t win it every year[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Unless you’re the Golden Gophers[/highlight]

 

[highlight=#fafafa]So sing us a song, you’re the Iowa fan[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Better you then me[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]If you think this year was rough[/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]Wait until 2003![/highlight]

[highlight=#fafafa]I can't find the McDonald's song, where Mocco ordered 20 Big N Tastys at an Iowa McDonalds, and then he tried to foot sweep the entire staff when they wouldn't give them to him. (Description from SJensen from The Wrestling Talk.)[/highlight]

JTTS is among the all-time best. I know that he wanted to take a step back from posting because he and his wife had a young child and he was concerned that enemies he made on the forum may use their dislike for him as ammunition to be overly tough on his son (should he ever get involved in the sport).

 

He was among my earliest mentors when I first started posting on the local forum. Over the years, I have lost track of him, but do wish he'd come back and grace us all with his humor and sarcasm.

that guy was hilarious, those were in the days when some people thought Mocco would follow in Baumgartner's footsteps, and JTTS was a big McCoy fan. That was an exciting time for wrestling when Iowa actually did not do well for a few years and you started to have new dynasties like Minnesota, Oklahoma State and now penn state even won a title.

Gents its all over the internet and old news Andrew Longs gone up to PSU to Kale but friends you know the Voice of Wrestlings gonna give you the inside dope KJ aint no saint we all know that he didnt just give Andrew a release to Kale out of the kindness of his heart hes an ******* gents hes proud to admit it. Pollerds still stinging from Kale telling him to go **** a tree so him and KJ sent him up to State College for a reason hes a ticking bomb a bad headline a cancer a explosion waiten to happen never met a drink he didnt take they bought him a grayhound ticket and stapled it to his poncho put him on the bus and faxed that release gents Kales two smart to fall for that trick but hes looking at a national championship and he thinks Longs the savior blinded him to the truth. Hombres my hearts going out to Andrew tell me one of you guys aint been in a twelve step program and Ill call you a liar sometimes a guy needs six or seven chances gets a fresh start we all got to get behind him and best wishes Andrew Long and Godspeed your gonna need it.

Well played Doc.

All of those are awesome. I can't remember the names of a lot of the posters, but I think Big Apple adds a lot. Same with Mark Schultz, in fact Pat Milkovich has posted on here a time or two. The guy that always had a pretty girl under his arm in his photos from Vegas, what the heck was his name? Oh yeah, Pete.

Best post all time in my opinion on this site. Hard to believe that has been so long ago now. I was a Junior in College! Yikes!

Wow, didn't know there was a mentoring program on this forum...

 

I would say that lewboo is a first ballot Hofer

 

 

I agree - lewboo is easily top HOF material. I didn't see MoJo listed here yet, but he's right up there near the top as well.

There is a lot more that put most of the current posters to shame.

 

I'm guessing that you're a new arrival to these forums? You should have seen it a few years back.

 

That's right. It was largely useless. The only things moderated were negative comments directed toward the Iowa Hawkeyes.
