    I think he's able to seperate the two jobs. Hopefully his training isnt lacking as much focus as it seems his team is. I'd love to see him get a World/Olympic title at the expense of PSU wrestling. It would be the best of both worlds as a USA/Iowa wrestling fan.

    That was the quote I was responding to--keeping it "in house". I have heard here, of other's concerns about the tone of some of the comments. If most want it this way--so be it. I appreciate the great knowledge and insight of the posters here and I can handle the digs if that's what everyone wants.

    The Ohio State University slips under the radar and wins the Big 10 and National Championship. With all the smack talk and people not wanting smack talk, no one see's it coming.

    Just funny to me when Herk's arguments are usually to point to the banners from the rafters as a reason to shout down any team celebrating their championship, ("you don't have as many as us & never will" sort of talk). Actually 1st it was talk to me when you win a title. Then PSU won one. Then it became talk to me when you have won 23.

    So I say, "talk to me when you have 34." But when you reverse the flow then of course all of those banners all of sudden don't matter & are diminished. I might as well say that "most of those Iowa banners don't matter b/c they were in the last century." Both statements are equally as asinine (comparing to the horse hair mat argument).

    The 1st 45 years of wrestling the state of Iowa was 2nd fiddle to Oklahoma & the only teams to win anything were Iowa State & UNI. Then that changed. If someone said in 1974 that Iowa was going to win the majority of the NCAA wrestling championships over the next 40 years many would have laughed. Iowa did do that. And it could also change again.

    In NCAA wrestling history for all of the production & winning Iowa is still Pepsi. Some fans know their history some fans don't. Okie St is still Coke by a long shot. Fans in PA have zero illusions about that. We are just happy that all this long history of high school talent is finally being actualized & get our brand of "Jim's Cola" on the shelf, to continue with that analogy. If some people take offense to that, well that's just unfortunate....

    You might be right KR about Oklahoma State, but in all reality like Herk said Oklahoma State won a lot of their titles either "Unofficially" or when there were about a fifth of the teams competing during the IOWA era of wrestling which we are still most definitely in right now. Iowa will be seen as the most dominant program anyway you look at it in my opinion.....of course others will disagree. Oklahoma State will be seen as the team with the most titles, and no dispute there. All other wrestling programs are on the 2nd tier shelf and will stay there for another 50 years or so.

    To Herkey and HawkeyeFan, Penn State FANS would like to model themselves after Ok St. But it seems like the Wrestling team is modeling themselves after Iowa...all they need now is 21 more championships and 42 more arrests.

    Tom, it's all light hearted. From my standpoint anyway. Some fans are just a little sensitive
