    In B1G football, schools have certain rivalries that play each year no matter what schedule shuffling goes on (tOSU-Mich; PSU-Neb now etc). Do Indiana and Purdue wrestle each year?

    So, would it be a bigger deal for you this year to beat Michigan, than say Iowa, Minn or PSU?

    Dude, I honestly have a 49-star flag in my front yard b/c I have independently awarded Michigan to Canada. It's always nice to beat an Iowa, Minn or PSU, but I harbor no ill will towards them. Hunter beating Russell made my season.

    Yes and no, it's great that we beat them, and in all likelyhood will beat them again when we wrestle them in Boise and again at the Pac 10's, but I would much rather beat them when they're at their best than when they're down.

    Tom,
    I thought about a couple of the PA schools. Lehigh is certainly the top, much more so than Pitt (then the others). But competitively, that match hasn't meant all that much since PSU joined the B10. If I had to choose, I'd take Iowa, then consider any of Lehigh, Minny, Ohio State. For me, moving to the B10 and that the Lehigh match has been less competitive over the last decade or so has dropped it down.

    It's kind of odd that you feel that way given Pitt is better than Lehigh. In addition, PSU and Pitt have a history of being arch rivals.

    Tom: When I was at PSU Navy & Lehigh were the biggest duals, followed by Pitt who was also very competitive. Now I would have to say Iowa is the dual that means the most in light of their decades of dominance. But, when we wrestled Ok St each year 10 or more years ago, I would have put that dual right up there with Iowa. It's a shame we don't wrestle Ok St any more.

    My dad has tons of memories about Penn State, Ok State matches. But basically for us Iowa is always the biggest, but the biggest deal if we lose is losing to OU. Losing to OU is one of the worst things that could happen, cause at least Iowa could be considered to be on our level haha.
