    And hey, MNinIA, don't blame the whole Big 12 for the timeout tactic - they're an OSU tactic!

    Valid point

    I will post this again. Come on! If Iowa would have won the dual the great point would have been:


    Iowa had so much momentum coming off a great Midlands performance and Okie St. was stale after the long break.

    Please let there be no excuses for this dual: sickness, beat up.

    No one was giving any excuses until 157 started. Then the crowd went silent and people started to complain and not cheer. Examples are as follows:

    ** Perry did exactly what Scott did, but no one got all over Perry for stalling and not being aggressive. - I am sure he will flex after his next big win though or maybe he will throw his shoes in the trash.)

    **One (probably more than 1) smart fan was complaining when Fields chose down after the second injury time out for Rosholt. He needed to be corrected.

    *Don't forget there were only 3 real shots taken from 157-174 for Iowa. It is tough to win when you have to be 100% perfect. High pace + more attempts = higher rate of return. Maybe then the calls will go your way. Slaton and Metcalf are good examples of high motors.

    The results are the results Okie State won. I am sure Brands is not making any excuses, just corrections.

    MN, there is no need to ever repost things around here just because people disagree with you. Either come up with new points, or agree to disagree. And sorry, but yes, beat-up and sick are reasons why teams don't do well, particularly in the dead of winter. Not excuses, but explanations. However, a loss for Iowa is a loss for Iowa, and the win-loss column will reflect that. Dual meet losses against non-conference teams don't, in the long run, mean diddly. As much as we all love the non-conference regular season match-ups, they just don't mean anything in the scheme of post-season titles. Iowa State beating Minny but losing to Iowa who then lost to Okie St. will not tangibly affect the post-season team title race. It's the beginning of January, and there is still a lot of wrestling to go. No teams' fans should be worrying about the sky falling just yet.

    You wouldn't be the first one to be guilty of that predicament.
