Thread: Safratowich denied a chance at NCAAs by Big Ten coaches

    This article sounds a lot like the complaining by basketball coaches we've heard on ESPN all week. Its getting old, all those teams had a chance to qualify by winning their conference, just like Saf had a chance to qualify by placing IN THE TOP 7 at the Big Tens! Put it on your shoulders and not the votes of the other coaches. Safs own fault and not the fault of the coaches. Minnesota, take some responsibilty

    Win and you're in! Just that simple and that hard. Wrestling is not just about the "Body of work" you put together but about being able to perform when it counts most. Safratowich's "body of work" this season got him his seed but from there it was up to him and he couldn't put it together.
    I think it is very much to his credit that Safratowich himself is neither whining nor blaming others in this article. He admits his failure to perform took the decision out of his hands and put it in someone else's. That shows real class and maturity and I am more impressed by that than anything else. Being gracious in victory is easy (and still few can do it), being gracious and classy in defeat shows true character.

    1. I agree, Saf has no one to blame but himself.

    2. I appreciate Brands having the guts to vote for Saf, he wants Minnesota's best effort at Big Ten's and NCAA's so he doesn't have to taint a possible 2 point victory by explaining why he left Saf at home. (Wiltz ?)

    3. The Wild Card thing should just go away. Its kind of bullshit in a way. Just tell a kid where he has to finish to go and let them have at it.

    What's the question? I just thought as much crap you like to give Brands, he did give your boy his vote.

    That was my response to your question. (Wiltz ?). I just was letting you know that in my ramble, I was answering your question.

    Brands is a crap magnet by the way. That can hardly be denied.
    All the crap he gets is usually self predicated.

    The great thing about Brands is that he doesn't care, either your with him or your against him.

    He takes care of those who are with him. Just ask Alex Tsirtsis, not many coaches would have let him redshirt this year at the expense of a good recruit.

    Well if Brands doesn't care if I am with him or against him then why should you?

    The decision with T-Shirts is still yet to be completely unraveled. If will become a little clearer next year as we see what the shake out looks like in the line-up.

    I think if Iowa had someone in the same position, that J Rob would have given him the vote right back.

    I don't care. I think some people have a bias against Brands in general. He will always have his fans and his detractors. I just happen to like him.

    A side note a good buddy of mine grew up with the Brands and I have met them on a couple of different occassions and Tom and Terry were both very cool.

    Yeah, I'm sure it's very painfull for the enemy to see Brand's on top.
    Same thing with Gable, during his coaching domination, most people outside of Iowa had few good things to say about the man!
