    The exception I have to Seskers's article is:

    He was penalized one team point for unsportsmanlike conduct and that was it. And that was the correct call.

    I've looked at the stills and the video. That was a bang bang referees decision call. Had he had the ability to view tape he either would not have made the call or would have reversed it.

    And that was the correct call.

    In retrospect, no I don't think it was the correct call. But like most, you can't reverse them.

    And being from New Jersey, you I'm neither a Hawk, nor in this bout, a Metcalf fan.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Good for him (Metcalf).

    I think it was appropriate for the situation. I think Caldwell would do well to admit the pre-celebratory antics may have been a contributing factor and we can all move on.

    Agreed, lets not be like the "other forum" and beat this topic to death. Everything that can be said already has...

    He did apologize like right after the match in his interview. This apology, was manufactured and about 6 days late.

    I'm glad he issued that apology, and I'm sure his heart is in the right place. For a few of you for whom nothing will satisfy, get over it and move on. Caldwell and Metcalf have. You can too.

    The other forum is so out of control it's unreal. Am I the only person who isn't an Iowa follower that is a big Metcalf fan? I can't believe more people don't admire the way he wrestles, trains, behaves off the mat, excels in school, etc.

    I'm not an Iowa follower (or a fan of any NCAA team, as I live in Canada) but I'd call myself a Metcalf fan. I just get annoyed with other Metcalf fans who seem to worship the guy like some sort of god. He's a(very) good wrestler. He scores a lot of points. He gives (inadvertantly) funny interviews sometimes. I don't get the extra attention- both positive and negative- that he gets.

    I think I fit in the category with you homer of not pro Hawk but pro Metcalf and certainly his relentless attacking style. I do think that when you put an athlete on the mat with Metcalf who isn't intimidated by him and is a threat offensively and is willing to go seven minutes with him, you are going to see good matches like these. I think DS and to an extent, Steve Brown are other examples. If you don't attack against a guy like Metcalf you aren't going to get on top and if you can't wear him down a little bit than you are in for a long (or short) match.
