    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Still can't believe Iowa won't be there.

    I trust Brands judgement though..

    That's exactly what I thought. What's the story?

    I'm surprised too that Iowa isn't there. They're normally stalwarts at it. Their team isn't overly young--lots of veterans back--so wonder why they aren't going this year? I'm sure Brands has a reason.

    Well, after a little checking, I guess its because they are in the grapple at the garden 2 weeks before. Not sure this is the reason, but I guess it's possible, even though Maryland and Hofstra are doing both, can anyone confirm this is the reason?

    Much like when Iowa didn't attend National Duals, Tom goes to tournaments/events only if he thinks it will help them for NCAA's. If he thinks it'd be better for them to have a weekend of training instead of competing, that's what they'll do. I don't believe this is a scheduling conflict.

    As a fan I wish Iowa was there, but like vais I trust that Brands knows how to handle his team better than I do. I am still hoping that a couple of their true freshman go and compete unattached. I would like to see how Brooks, Clark, Gillman and Skon fair against the field.

    Russ,

    There wasn't any significance to the teams in bold, was there? Just checking.
    UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.

    Maybe top 25 teams based on preseason polls or last years NCAA finish?
