    Herkey@whatthehelldoesnittanymean I'd rather have Gilman or Clark and Brands.

    On behalf of the Nittany Nation, you can have them. Who is Brands? If you are referring to your coach, I think you already have him. Maybe you are worried that Cael is so good at recruiting that he might get Brands to leave Iowa to be the unpaid assistant at Penn State? That's understandable....

    Brands just happens to be the guy who coached the current Olympic gold medalist and two time NCAA finalist. He can take a guy like Gilman or Clark (who are both very good already) and turn them into an NCAA champion. I'm not saying that Gullibon isnt good. Just that the combination of him and Cody Sanderson < Clark or Gilman and Terry Brands. Nice pickup for PSU though.

    It's been rumored that Topher Carton is coming to Iowa too. Don't know if it's true or not but he's not too shabby at all.

    I think SOME of the pennsylvania kids get overrated just because they are from there. I think th states reputation for high school wrestlng preceeds some of its wrestlers. Not saying this is the case for Guilibon, just pointing it out.

    Side note: This never happens for a Hawkeye wrestler. They ALWAYS deserve the preseason rankings they get because they spent the offsesason working ten times harder than any other guy in the country.

    Gulibon has credentials beyond his state championships. Flonationals, beast of the east and more.

    Credentials don't really mean much to me. Iowa kids don't wrestle at flonationals or beast of the east very much. Cory Clark and John Meeks would've had a great shot at winning those tournaments. Iowa kids are too busy bailing hay and stacking it in the barn durring the summer months to go to all the freestyle tournaments.

    I have heard that Iowa HS wrestlers can mentally break being overrated. Thank you Herkey for confirming this for me.

    I still think there is a tendency for Iowa (university) wrestlers get overrated going into NCAAs, but that is in another thread.

    I'll tell you who is overrated, DAVID TAYLOR. He's a phenomenal wrestler, excellent character, extremely skilled and athletic, literally great. BUT everyone in PA and OH hyped him as the next Dan Gable or Cael Sanderson and he just isn't that guy. No one in college wrestling is right now. Taylor is great, Dake is undefeated at NCAA's and has two more years to be the next Cael but that's two very long years. We're just on the subject of overrated high schoolers and PA kids even Iowa kids but Taylor is an Ohio kid who was just way over rated in my honest opinion, I still don't think he'll win it next season. Don't get me wrong, he's much better than I ever dreamed of being and I love everything about the kid, I just think he's overrated.
