    I think the tone would be completely different.

    I don't understand how you can "duck" a guy you've beaten twice. I still won't understand it, but then again, I'm not from Iowa.
    Way to lump an entire fan base with a few isolated idiots.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Caldwell's a great wrestler, I being an Iowa fan get really upset about the finals match last year, I just wish they had a chance to meet again with eligibility left in their college career. I guess we'll have to wait to see the next time they meet up, if Caldwell's shoulder will hold up. Either way I take Metcalf in the next rematch. Hard to believe that a wrestler that was so gassed in the 3rd period in the championships had enough energy for a backflip before time expired, something to think about!!

    If he was gassed I hate to think what he would have done to Metcalf if he wasn't?

    Caldwell stalled out the entire 3rd period. Go back and watch the film.

    Had he not it could have gotten ugly for Metcalf, thats all I am saying.

    It couldn't have been any worse, DC had his flurry right away I'll give him credit for that, but after a period of stalling to end it with a backflip leaves a bad taste in my mouth being a fan, especially a Iowa fan.

    Yeah but if you are going to own all of Metcalf's glory you have to also accept the thunder. I still think in 10 matches, Metcalf wins 6 or 7 of them against Caldwell. I was just surprised to see him at times in that match be stronger than Metcalf and more aggressive. I'm not a Metcalf hater but I have to say I jumped out of my chair a few times during that match but more in awe of Caldwell's ability.

    I want a wrestler on my team to wrestle all seven minutes. I'll give Caldwell credit, he was the best wrestler for five minutes of that match, and then stalled out. He won the match plain and simple, but once again I take Metcalf in the rematch, and it sounds like you do too.

    I did not see Caldwell gassing... he had a big lead and protected it in the third. Very smart thing to do in any match, especially a National Championship match.
