Thread: Bubba Jenkins

    To imply -- in any way -- that ANY of the guys wrestling in the NCAA finals is not "athletic" just seems silly.

    I finally saw the Metcalf vs. Jenkins match where Metcalf pinned him and scored on him at will. If that isn't "athletic" I don't know what was.

    I've never seen a wrestler -- Jenkins -- with less stamina. Metcalf was scoring on him at will. Jenkins didn't even seem to try to stop Metcalf from pinning him. And more than half of Jenkins points were escapes that Metcalf let him have just so he could take him down again ....

    Metcalf is a different kind of "athletic". His motor and strength would definitely be coveted in many sports. It just serves him best in this sport.

    I agree, calling him not "athletic" is ridiculous.

    I have become a convert and trust me, most on this board know that I did a true 180 on this kid. At least for me, it happened well prior to Big Tens.

    Totally agree. If Jenkins had any lungs he could have kept at least one of those matches close.

    His lungs are embarrassing. How he won a Jr. World Title with those is beyond me.

    I'm just sorry JP did not get to wrestle him.
    See you in St. Louis!

    Yeah, that was one match up that I think some fans wanted to see. I am going to go on record though as saying that Metcalf was on a mission and was going to get through whomever they put on the mat against him, yes, even DS again.

    I'd have to say that if Palmer actually ends up redshirting next year it would take away one of the guys that has a style that always gives Metcalf struggles. He was a close call from most likely going into overtime, Palmer has the lungs to stay with Brent and the defense to stop the onslot of shots. If he develps a better offense on the feet it could definately grow into quite a rivalry.

    That's exactly what JP's dad was saying about JP. May not see it though unless Metcalf moves up.
