some observations from this meet:
165 - neither guy seemed to want to wrestle on his feet. Just as ISU2008 said, last reversal wins. Fay was just tough enough to get the riding time point.
Overall - either Cael is teaching the cradle very well or Penrith is teaching that putting your knee up by your head is a solid counter. Man oh man.
I expected a bigger crowd for Night of Champions. Mike McCready's wife got the biggest ovation (you kinda have to be from Iowa to know how loved Mike was) followed by Tony Davis and then 3X NCAA champ Keith Young. Most people didn't seem to know who Bill Smith was (BTW - I got it wrong in an earlier post - he won his Olympic gold medal in 1952). Still, it gave me goosebumps to see all of those wrestling legends. As has been pointed out before - only 10 schools have won an NCAA DI team championship and UNI is one of them (while still Iowa State Teacher's College).
Also - The McLeod Center is a great venue for a dual meet. If you haven't attended one there - try to.
I completely agree about the McLeod Center. That was the first time I'd been there and I was really impressed. I don't remember who said it, but it would be great if ISU had a place like that for most of its duals. I liked the character of the West Gym, that was a great venue too.
You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
