    Kemp did sound like Gable a few times during the match. At least twice, it sounded as if Gable had walked by and was doing some guest announcing.

    Yeah, Gable was pretty bias on Sunday. He was rooting for the Hawks the whole time. You'd think he was invested in the team somehow the way he went on and on about the team. They really shouldnt have a person so close to the program in the booth. Maybe they hire a guy like Lee Kemp to do some color comentary next time.

    Marion got the upset, Alton was upset
    Ballweg prevented bonus, Molinaro failed to get bonus
    St. John prevented the tech or fall, Taylor failed to get the tech or fall
    Janssen got the win, Kemmerer failed to get the win
    Lofthouse prevented bonus, Ruth failed to get bonus
    Gramball got the upset, Wright was upset
    Lofthouse got bonus, Ruggear gave up bonus
    Rasing prevented bonus, Wade failed to get bonus

    I hate Iowa and love Penn St.

    But no doubt Brands did a much, much, much better job preparing his team than Cael.

    Luckily for Penn St.,they should still be top 2 in NCAAs. At a tournament, the individual team vs team and coach vs coach impact means much much less. Still, even winning feels less satisfying when you lose to Iowa head to head.

    EDIT: Unfortunately for Iowa, this win does not boost them in the rankings more than a place or so. Only Ramos and Gramball move up, Marion jumps in. They should still be around #6/#7
    Um Situation, NO. The points I was making were BEYOND the obvious. What you said has already observed & commented upon.

Oh wait, that's not how it works at all.

    And by the way, if you want to drag other people into it, you can ask vais about a conversation yesterday where he asked me if I thought Gambrall and Rasing were our best shots at upsets, and I told him no, Ramos and Gambrall were our best bets, and both guys had a reasonable shot at getting the upset, and also that those two picks were assuming that Marion didn't wrestle, because if he did wrestle, he was our best bet for the upset.

    Sorry you don't appreciate getting called out for what you are doing. Who cares if you were telling vais three days ago that you thought Iowa could win or would win, you did it for the sole purpose of doing what you're doing in this thread: either way you win. Either your team is victorious or your "against the grain" predictions make you look good.



    Because I didn't come in here and acknowledge that I didn't get EVERY match right, and Badcat, a poster who has been talking tremendous amounts of smack about the Hawkeyes and Brands, got 3 out of 10 right, I'm doing something wrong? Get bent, dude.
    Yea you are...

    No coverage. Just changed my prediction a few weeks before the dual. That other one was a month ago. Vegas changes their lines all the time. But I forgot. Everything I do is wrong or a crime in your book. And when people call you out for a being a hypocrite you apparently can't deal with it. Get Bent? Get phkd. CW & Tampa arent so far apart...

    They were plenty loud on Sunday a few times but they were quiet too. You can go look @ the Live Blog. I even typed it...QUIET. And there were times you could hear all 12 Iowa fans right behind me being louder then 6800 PSU fans.

    If you look @ the pictures you can see that almost all the fans have silver hair. Most of them are old tough wrestlers. And when Marion hit the mat the place went nuts. I couldn't hear myself think but that changed soon after.

    You sir are why people are pumping their chest over this win. Maybe the white fog in the arena made it impossible to see this match. I have 1 simple question to ask of you. In your opinion was Marion stuck?
    It happened 6 feet in front of me. So yes he was, but oh well. Alton needed to overcome that injustice & still GIT ER DUN. Didn't happen. You need to be able to overcome all sorts of adversity including the refs. If you don't take that into the equation you'll end up crying a lot & in regret instead of moving forward like a shark.
