Thread: ISU wrestle offs

    I was at Iowa States wrestle offs last night. It was a nice little program. Much different than how Iowa runs theirs. Much more fan friendly. However, I think theres something to be said about cramming into the Iowa wrestling room to watch them square off. anyways...

    There were a couple of good matches. The overall feel was pretty poor. I thought most of the wrestlers lacked intensity. But that could be because they were wrestling friends.

    Finch and Larson had many good scrambles. Finch always came out on top. He gives up his leg too easy though. Larson got in on him multiple times but never could change off.

    Meeks is very quick and so is Terukina. But Meeks is quicker. He needs a lot of work from the mat but he showed many good things from the feet. He turned it on in the third too which was good to see.

    Moreno came out and took down Goettle right away. These two went into OT. I think they would split 5-5 if the wrestled ten times.

    Tanner Weatherman beat Mike England in 2OT. Kind of a chess match. I dont' think this weight is settled after last night. Either guy will do fine.

    Wish I would have saw Gibson and Queen Smith wrestle but got to see Gibson and Swope instead. Gibson Tf'd him in four minutes. The clones better hope that Smith is able to wrestle after this year.

    I guess I hadn't heard about grades being an issue for Gadsen. I thought it was just the staff being cautious and trying to give him every chance to heal up before the season gets into full swing. Whatever the case I hope he can stay eligible and healthy this season. Lots of potential that I'm really curious to see at the D1 level.

    Looks like State is finally starting to get some depth back, especially from 57 to 74. I hope the trend continues.

    It was a dominant inj default performance though. The kind that gets you incumbency status.

    Herk,
    what you said about Meeks can pretty much be said about all freshman . Most of them have never been rode before and are clueless on how to get out from under .

    Who was that guy that swore Goettl was going to be an All American after he beat Maple last year?

    Right, but KJ is going to throw him out there in an attempt to save his job. It would suit Meeks better in the long run to RS.

    I remember when Iowa fans thought KJ was going to be a better coach than Cael...
