Biggest story and surprise both is Iowa turning chicken and running away from a tournament appearance.
I just found out last week about Iowa's gaffe and it's #1 on my list... so - hmmmm.... I'm the 3rd person who thinks Iowa "turning chicken" "a mere 90 miles away" for the duals qualifies, at least among the posters thus far. That's almost 30% of responding posters - which technically kind of makes our perspective legitimate. I think it'd be difficult for you to argue that "we've known that since summer" - unless you are defining 'we' as roughly 70% of us... or maybe mostly you... which, of course, then it'd make complete sense.
I'm just saying...
Iowa's schedule was released months ago. The topic has been discussed more than once. Just because you're late to the news doesn't make it suddenly newsworthy again.
I gotta go with Iowa running away from national duals
Then I'm going to go with Andrew Long an Montell Marion being kicked off their respective teams.. Or maybe Jayson Ness winning the Hodge, come to think of it, let's go with Cael going 159-0. Owings beat Gable?!
The biggest story of the year is definitely Brands getting cold feet and ducking competition. All his 3-peat bravado is revealed as hypocrisy with this cowardice.
