    This, I'm sure, will generate controversy again on the fall call! I see we have the NCAA finals and the spladle matches posted. I'm waiting for an Iowa fan to post the all-star match (which happens to be the only one of the 3 matches that I hadn't seen before these postings).

    I'm guessing Gofer is a closet Metcalf fan and wants someone to help explain how this could happen to the great one. It still hurts me too Gofer. I see little Ryder as somewhat of a Metcalf clone

    I couldn't find the All Star, I DID look.

    I'm not sure about the controversy, it took him awhile to make the call. Surprised the 2nd ref didn't come in on the back side bc Metcalf wasn't going anywhere.

    I really dislike Iowa, but there is no way that was a pin

    Not at that precise time.......I suspect that the ref was late with the call.

    How was it late? Their position never changed and Caldwell didn't improve what I could tell.

    You can call a pin all the way down to the bottom of the scapulas.
