    How many of those guys do you plan on running out there on the mat at the same time at National Duals?

    Gotta admit though, that is an embarrassment of talent at those light weights. We aren't even talking about Falck, LeClere and Tsistsis either. Still not sure everyone stays around for long but I guess Falck and Tsirtsis graduate after this year so it opens up a little bit and who knows, Metcalf could go up to 157 and open up some room at 149 for one of those guys too.

    Iowa needs to look into trading some of the light weight talent for some upper weights lol

    You have some nice talent their too though with Borschel, Keddy, Beatty and Erekson. 157 and 165 are the only real question marks right now but with M* in there you'll at least have a veteran NCAA qualifier at 165. 157 looks like the only hole at this point and Iowa has some options there as well. Just need to watch the injuries, keep the boys going to class and not burn them out and I think they are without question the team to beat this year.

    I like Ohio State, Iowa State, Cornell, and Missouri to be right there though should Iowa stumble.

To find out he's white might make the announcer think about doing an on air apology. Not sure why he would think he was black when the only other person I know who was name Atticus was Atticus Finch in "To Kill A Mockingbird" and he was a white lawyer.
    I can tell you that Atticus was named after Atticus Finch in that movie his father is a lawyer for the State of Kansas and he liked the movie, but I dont see why you would think that he was black because of his name. His last name is one of the most famous names in the world and Walt Disney was white.

    The discussion about Disney did have one positive outcome. In talking about Disney the announcer mentioned that he only knew two other Atticus's.

    Atticus Finch, and "Crispus Atticus, the first fella killed during the Revolution".

    Those who know their history should figure out why I enjoyed this quote so much.

    That and Attucks was killed six years before the Revolution began.
