Another theory of mine is that Scott gassed after his lungs filled with perfume during the cheerleader pileup.

It was an interesting little match between #1 v. #2. Scott hit the same move, with the same set up for all three of his takedowns, and then didn't do much of anything on top.
But like what happens a lot, he won the match on the terms that he was allowed. He was definitely gassed out at the end though.

I think you give slaton way too much credit or scott not enough, scott dominated that entire match up until about the last 30 seconds where slaton was the beneficiary of some bad calls. As for scott not doing much on top I totally disagree he was looking for turns, just because he wasnt able to find any doesnt mean he was stalling.
You said to compare how mason rides to how keddy rides but how is that a fair comparision? Mason is an undersized 174 pounder who's absolutely BRUTAL with legs in while keddy is an ogre at 184 that was able to simply overpower hill. Obviously their styles are going to be different. if you have both legs in how is it possible to NOT be parralel? he was looking for a turn and he almost had it a few times thats why he didnt get dinged for stalling (despite fitzgerald makin some truely aweful stalling calls last night).
Im not an okie state fan either but I think you arent giving them enough credit, they came in and beat the hawkeyes when they werent supposed to and none of the supposed toss up matches was even close.

No. 8 Matt Fields (Iowa) vs. No. 4 Jared Rosholt (OSU)
Borschel was working hard to get out and got warned for stalling. Keddy was constantly out to the side trying arm bars, etc and Hill was just trying to base out. I just don't think the 2 matches were called the same.
You are all probably right about my interpretation of the Scott/Slaton match. I'm becoming as much of a Slaton fan as I am an Ironside fan and I'm probably not being objective. My bad.
