    I'm pretty sure it was just you...

    PSU had a section next to the press section & above the 3rd place mat & SID tables. NW seemed to be all over.
    Iowa did fill up about 1/2 the arena. IC is only a 4 hour drive from Chicago. If you don't want them to drown you out then other fans better show up.

    I agree, that is a nice set of photos. Look at all the Penn State guys in those photos with their arms raised!

The crowd was so rabidly Iowan that when Andrew Howe was winning his championship, all the Iowa fans (90% of the crowd) were yelling for Aaron Jansen. Howe stood there, his hand raised, and realized that hardly anyone was even paying attention to his match. Or that's how it seemed to me. Which brings me to another thing that struck me. Why don't other schools come out like Iowa? Penn State had, what five champions, but I could not locate a Penn State section in the stands. I was supposedly sitting in the Northwestern section, but I was the only dope wearing purple. And one last, thing, was it just me, or did it look like David Taylor was going to get pinned in the first few seconds of his match with St. John? I really like Taylor but he needs to take these matches a little more seriously. He has a tough job ahead of him at the NCAAs (which I also have tickets to) and I'm not so sure he's going to get a championship. I hope he does, but I have my doubts. Alright, one last thing. Please tell me the seats in Philadelphia will have backs. Those benches at Walsh-Ryan kill my back after a few hours.

    RE Taylor:

    I did see that, after DSJ had the TD Taylor tried some little move and DSJ sunk a very deep half in on it and did have him going over but they were right on the edge and the action moved out of bounds. With the length and leverage DSJ has it would not have been a good situation to be in.
