Super 32 Challenge - October 26-27, 2013
"Good things happen when you wrestle for a full seven minutes." -- Jayson Ness, post-finals press conference
I thought Jenkins wrestled very well against Metcalf. After the first period I knew Metcalf would score more points on Jenkins, but I was in shock after the first period. I didn't see him wrestle his way to the finals, but I knew the opponents he beat to get there and the scores of each match.
Saying Metcalf is not an athlete is very odd. Of course he is a great athlete. He doesn't appear as athletic as Poeta, GG, Caldwell, Leen, or even Jenkins, but he gets the job done through hard work and his desire to win. I'm sure Bubba really wanted to win, but I would bet Metcalf wanted to win even more and had trained himself better during the year with conditioning etc.
I interpreted what Jenkins said after the match as him keeping a positive note on his performance, letting Metcalf know he isn't afraid of him, and that he will beat him in the future possibly. That's what I got from it anyhow.
Is there a video of Metcalf pinning Jenkins? I'd like to see that.
You would think that Penn State would have "handlers" who would have coached Jenkins on how to give an interview. He's a fine wrestler but that was an embarassing series of answers.
When you have very little oxygen left your brain doesn't work to well for interviews. I thought Bubba was starting to get winded by the middle of the second, and Brent does not get winded. Seems like he goes even harder in the third period than anyone else.
See you in St. Louis!

Just want to help my team.
Good lord willing, I will get another chance to get that title.
This will just motivate me for the next opportunity..........................
