Thread: Iowa Wrestlers Wake Up and Eat Breakfast

  1. #1

    Default Iowa Wrestlers Wake Up and Eat Breakfast

    Is it just me or is there not alot to report about in Iowa except for Primaries and Collegiate Wrestling?

    I am actually a little bit jealous of the coverage that they get.

    lol...don't get me wrong...i like hearing Iowa all fired up, I just don't think this is their year...

    My idea of building a national championship would probably not have gone the route that Iowa's took:

    1. Fire popular ex-wrestler coach
    2. Replace him with embattled popular ex-wrestler
    3. Take all of his recruits with him in the process (if this were football this would have been ALL over the news and there would have been serious backlash from the media and possibly the ncaa.
    4. Finish 8th place at Nationals
    5. Declare yourselves ready to compete for the National Championship.

    Then again, humility was never a Brands/Gable trademark.

    I am going to really enjoy beating Iowa this year. I don't care if its by 1 or 21.

    Nor does humility appear to be a Gopher trademark, either.
    We are hopeful, not bitter or jealous. With all that great talent and such a great coach, you shouldn't be either.

    1. JZ wasn't all that popular.
    2. Tom Brands seems pretty damn popular in Iowa right now.
    3. The V-tech transfers paid their price. It's a free country, no?
    4. Many teams have a rebuilding year. Before J Rob left Iowa for Southern Manitoba, didn't the gophers ever rebuild?
    5. We ARE ready to compete for the National Championship!

    See you at National Duals.

    #5...if by compete you mean you will be allowed to compete at NCAA's, then yes, you will compete for the National Championship.

    you will run into the same problem that the 06' Gophers ran into with Okie State, in a dual meet you will be able to compete and maybe even win but at NCAA's you will not have the horses...

    I think Iowa fans will enjoy when Metcalf beats Schlatter. Even if Minnesota wins the title this year it will be with no champions.
