I don't know anyone who has proclaimed them champs yet.
Wow Herk, your post says a lot. Here's a response from a Penn State fan-
Anybody who crowned PSU champs this year is an idiot. In my opinion PSU still has a decent shot at winning the NCAA tourney, but only because I think it is a bit of a down year in wrestling. Minnesota, Iowa State, Ok State and Ohio State don't have killer line-ups like they have had (especially Ohio State). Cornell is really strong at 3-4 weights but only pretty good to average at the others. Iowa is down from last year (though getting Marion back is a HUGE boost). Maybe it is a down year, or maybe it is a sign that there are more and more strong programs (Cornell and Boise this year, for example). I think PSU is 1-2 years from being a real force.
But since you asked a question Herk, here is one for you and the Iowa fans:
How can you take Tom Brands?? No doubt he wins, and congrats on that. But the man shows no class what so ever. Want examples?
1. He runs out on the mat in about half the matches any given night. He does know it is a violation and does realize he is NOT wrestling, right? (Why the refs won't call it is for another time)
2. 2009 dual at Penn State. He stood across from Troy Sunderland, made pistols out of his hands, and fired across as his #1 ranked team easily beat a mediocre PSU team. I wouldn't let a 3rd grade wrestler do this, much less expect it from a head coach.
3. He and Zadick spent some time explaining a road rage incident with the State College police when B10's were here. The details aren't public, so we will leave it at that.
The man has won 70+ straight and is 3x defending NCAA team champs. When will he act like an adult?
Blah blah blah Brands, blah blah blah classless. Soooooooo bored with this topic.

The whole classless thing is so played out, get some new material. This is wrestling, its an intense sport. If you cant handle it watch figure skating.
