    Sure, it's a great thing to be jacked up and inspiring your team, which the Brands brothers clearly do, but there are limits, right?

    Maybe I'm getting too old or something.
    Sure there are limits. As long as Brands isn't touching Wade, I have no issue with it. This isn't peewee or high school wrestling. There was some coach, I believe from Northwestern, who ran out onto the mat and pulled a kid off his wrestler, but nobody even mentioned it on the forums.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    The real test of any argument?

    If it was someone else's guy doing what your guy did, would you still be lovin it?

    If Cael did what Brands did, this thread would be 26 pages long not 13.

    So if you can imagine Cael doing what Brands did (or John Smith or J Rob etc) & you are still ok with it, THEN Brands did NOTHING wrong...

    Let's get ready for some great wrestling. The Dapper Dan's are also this weekend. Btw Iowa has 3 recruits wrestling in it, (none from Iowa...hmm)

    If I had heard about the Northwestern coach I'd probably have called him a d-bag as well. It doesn't matter to me that it's Brands. We do have a major difference of opinion though, because I don't think there is any reason for the coach (or coaches) to be doing what To and Te were doing.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not losing a bunch of sleep over it - I realize that the level of sportsmanship has gone to hell in every sport over the last 15 to 20 years.

    Yes, I think evidence shows that Cael Sanderson is a much more polarizing figure in the college wrestling world then Tom Brands...
