    I'm in the same boat.

    I like watching the guy because of his technique as odd as that may sound.

    I think his groupies (no one here really) that just focus on the gas tank (and rip those who God forbid don't have one with the same depth) actually short sell the guy as you can see when you watch him just how much time he's spent out on the mat refining his stuff.

    Metcalf clearly has the lung capacity of a championship cyclist or high altitude mountaineer. He's a freak in that regard.

    His technique isn't all that bad either. He didn't waste any time putting Bubba to his back this year during the finals match for the big 10's. No doubt I'm a Hawkeye fan, but this kid is pure aggressive, and has very solid technique. I saw the Palmer match last year, that was close. I was also there in person to watch the match between Schlater and Metcalf at the big 10's last year in Minny. Hope to see a match next year against a healthy Schlater.

    Metcalf is good for wrestling regardless if you like him or the Hawkeyes. If the sport had more guys like him and Herbert it could help increase the fan base and then maybe we wouldn't be losing so many programs.
