    if JENKINS were an ATHLETE he would be in SHAPE.......Metcalf match

    Cael Sanderson was an ATHLETE

    Last year, JH in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class won quite a few matches with late takedowns, and on riding time. This year, in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class Metcalf has been on his back several times early in matches, and has come close another time or two, but since it happened early, he got off his back, and wore the guy out and beat him.

    I haven't seen all the matches where he's gone to his back, but the fact that its always happened early in matches, and he hasn't run up against any over anxious official who wants to punch guys out quick, seems to have a measure of the lady luck watching over him.

    I realize that its damn near blasphemous to say anything that even could be remotely construed as critical of Metcalf, but this is ridiculous.

    smth, I have my definition of pure athlete, Jenkins fits it, I don't have to redefine anything. If you've got someone else, by all means, contribute it.

    Some of you Iowa/Metcalf fans truly are stupid, I swear.

    I'm not saying Jenkins is the best wrestler in College at the moment, I'm not even intimating that he's the best guy at 149. Thats not what I mean when I say best "pure athlete."

    What I should have done is put Caldwell down, he played football, and baseball at a high level in Jersey along with wrestling, which is something I looked at when I said best "pure athlete" evidence of excelling at other sports, along with just the quickness, and strength and the rest.

    And well, when it comes to history between him and Metcalf, it looks better from his end than Metcalf's.

    Jenkins isn't quite the "wrestling athlete" Metcalf is...quickness, strength, accuracy, timing, whatever sport etc - he got humiliated their last match

    plain and simple......humiliation is not pure, it's sad

    I think Josh Churella deserves at least an HM as a leg rider.

    I think your post helps prove my point - I mention Schlatter and you jump on defense

    (by the way, I can't find fault with anyone for gushing about all 3 of those guys)
    You should know that needling Gopher fans about Dustin is like poking a hornet's nest with a stick. What I find amusing is that Ness is perhaps the best wrestler in college right now, dominates everybody, and yet it's Dustin that brings out the hornets. Ness doesn't need protection. He just wins.
