Thread: Evans Kokesh

    Default Evans Kokesh

    Evans beats Kokesh 9-6, that is easily the best match I've ever seen Evans wrestle. Evans gave up a cheap reversal during the last five seconds of the match, he was in control otherwise. Really good effort.

    St. John beat Brown too.

    As usual, Iowa wins the big matches.

    Green.

    Freudian slip? Haha.

    Don't know what I'm thinking. I guess I'm getting used to Iowa wrestlers beating down the opposition, regardless of the uniform.

    Evans should have gotten back points right at the end. Evans really could have majored him.

    Now can everyone calm down about kokesh? Soared up the rankings beating very few solid guys.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Same goes for Andrew Alton honestly. As much as I like his potential all he has done is pin fish

    Aah, 1stplace. . .I agreed with you on Brown, but have to disagree here. I partially agree in that A Alton does rely too much on his throws at times (just as QW has done at times). But there is a lot more to AA than just his throws. He has great leg shots and scrambling ability. Don't know what happened last night against Tessari, but his potential is there. In the post-match interview Cody Sanderson said that they need to figure out what's going on with AA. But he's more than just a throwing specialist. There seem to be some similarities with QW 2 years ago. Hopefully the coaching staff can get him to work it through before NCAA's.

    Note: 1stplace, I see I misread your post. I thought you had written that basically all he can do is throw. Actually, I'm not quite sure how I missed it, as what you said was clear (guess I read it too quickly). But, yes, I have to agree that he doesn't have any great wins so far this year. So, I agree with you on both Brown and Alton.

    Watching an Andrew Alton that is "right" is a scary thing. The kid has through the roof potential and there is no doubt in my mind that he has the ability to be a champ before his career is over, but something isn't clicking right now. At this point in the season he has only really beaten up on weaker competition and lost to the couple guys of substance that he has faced. I just think that right now I wouldn't bet on him being an all-american but I also wouldn't be surprised to see him in the finals. Not trying to hate on the kid, he just needs to figure things out
