    Brands is intense and emotional. Knight was mean-spirited and abusive. They don't seem alike at all, except that neither is quiet and lethargic.

    Nutty probably the better term. Fruity? I'd hate to be the guy who calls him that to his face.
    You can tell that he was in no mood for a press conference, and someone probably unintentionally asked him something that got him riled.

    I think it got real old this year. That Iowa team was more dirty than anything. Just Metcalf's finish on Jenkins in the finals when he actually leaves his feet and drives his shoulder into Jenkins chest, or when Slaton I believe flipped the OSU wrestler several feet out of bounds. There's a place for intimidation in wrestling. That shove when you're cutting a guy, or a little bump going out of bounds I guess. I don't have any problem with that, but what the Iowa guys do crosses the line a little bit, and it appears as though they're doing it because they feel that's the "Brands style".

    I love the intensity, I don't love the cheap shots.

    I'm with you, Ranger. If wrestling isn't about sportsmanship and respect for your opponent, it's a waste of time.

    while i would never use the word 'fruity' to describe tom MF brands, sometiems the things he says are a little . . . off. did anyone else see the interview where he was talking about the intergalactic games? haha. don't quote me directly on this, but it was something to the effect of 'national domination, then world domination, and then, if there are other life forms out there, the intergalactic games'. HAHAHAHAHA i mean, come on!

    the guy is out there.

    I respect him, and I guess I meant "fruity" as in him really not really caring what others think of him. I love the sneakers with the suit too!

    The ref can penalize dirty wrestlers, and they do. If they were your wrestlers you'd say it was competitive. The matches I saw didn't seem dirty to me, and I don't think anything hazardous was calculated. Opinions may differ. Iowa doesn't train dirty wrestlers, they train competitive ones.

    I think that was Terry talking about the intergalactic games. So now we know that they're both a little "off".
