    Default NCAA Issues Reprimand of Metcalf

    Another wrestling writer alerted me to this news. I visited the NCAA's official website and can't call up the official release, so I'm posting what was posted at TheOtherForum.com forum. If someone can refute this, please do so...


    INDIANAPOLIS---The NCAA Division I Wrestling Games Committee has reprimanded University of Iowa student-athlete Brent Metcalf for inappropriate behavior following the 149-pound weight class match in the 2009 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
    Specifically, Mr. Metcalf?s post-match actions of aggressively shoving his opponent jeopardized that student-athlete?s safety. Because of these actions, the committee decided to issue a public reprimand to Mr. Metcalf.

    The wrestling committee was disappointed in Mr. Metcalf?s actions and strongly believes the championships should not be tarnished by such acts.

    With all of the on field crap that goes on in football and basketball, why do they chose to go public with a wrestler and stay silent on all other sports ?
    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.

    With all of the press that Metcalf gets, the NCAA had to "flex their muscle" and let everyone know that they will keep their "poster children" in check. Lame, but that's the way it is.

    Seems weird, why did it take them three weeks? Did they just figure out wrestling season was over?

    Because we are wrestlers and we don't turn our backs on issues in our sport. We are not like baseball. We don't put up with stupid stuff just to bring more spectators out.
    Everyone has there opinion on the incident, and I think both should have been rep'd. This is to nip that stuff in the bud. To me anyway.

    RYou-God only knows. Shoot, the last student, in any sport, to get a public reprimand from the NCAA, was the Stanford Tree back in 2006 for behavior during that year's women's basketball tournament, and the last student-athlete, in any sport, was a Franklin Pierce soccer player for his behavior during the 2005 NCAA Division II men's soccer tournament. Why they chose Brent Metcalf to pick on in this case is beyond me.
