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.
Overall it looks as if no one is ready to step up and handle success this year. It should be a fun finish to the season as teams find out who they really are.

the whole dual reminded me a little bit of ISU-Minny where I think both teams had done some great scouting and you just knew when things went down at 165 it was probably over. Borschel v Mason was the coffin closer but lets remember for alot of these Hokeyes that this was there first match against Okie State and I think they all learned something about their opponents.
No love for Central Michigan moving up at all?
