interesting to see 57 and 65 -Bonin is tough and Pickerel is a stud when healthy .

Ouch. Iowa wins 39-0.
I'm surprised UNI fared so poorly.

I have NOT seen Gambrall wrestle , so based on the decisions of his last 2 matches he has beaten UR Hinton and UR Loder by 2 points each . Hardly outstanding or worthy of a #7 ranking .
Where is everyones favorite AA Jarion Beets?
Beets has apparently been beat out by Wolfe. He lost to him in the wrestle offs and maybe hasnt done anything to earn the spot back. Wolfes showing last night may be enough for Schwab to open the door a little wider for him though. Lofthouse rolled him.
Overall I thought Iowa looked pretty good last night. They didnt do much turning from the top but had a boatload of riding time. Chiri gave up the only takedown of the night but ended up pinning Lawrence. Gambrall and St. John need to get some wind. They were sucking air pretty bad. Ballweg continues to look impressive, as impressive as you can be without having much offense. He's young so I think that will come with more confidence. Tony Ramos is looking more and more like the number one guy at 133. Wish he was a little bigger but he's tough. Midlands should shake all of that out.
UNI just looked bad again. Kind of reminds me of Brands first year at Iowa. Not eveyone bought in right away. I think Doug will get his team looking better than they did last night but some of his guys gave up, Wolfe being one of them. It's hard to believe that Jamal Lawrence was once a top recruit. He gave up too. Brantley HAS taken a step or two back from two years ago. Those guys up there in Cedar Falls need to take a little pride in what they are doing. Being ridden out takes alot out of a guy mentally but instead of trying harder some of them gave up. That won't sit well with Schwab.
