    I agree. A slam tends to get the audiences attention whether or not its there guy doing the slam or being slammed it brings out concern from everyone.

    I didn't see it but I was watching the matches, trying to explain to my neighbors how to score the matches and may have missed some of the action.

    I can tell you that to a person, everyone in the room became bored to tears after the 174 match. I couldn't argue with them although I was trying to explain to them how evenly matched these weights appeared to be.

    The other thing these newbies noticed was that whomever seemed to get hurt in the match, ended up winning. (See Perry, Jaggers). I was chuckling and saying to them, in what other sport do you find the guy that's hurt sucking it up and consistently winning. I think I made a couple of wrestling converts that night which is a good sign for the sport. Thank you to ESPN again for putting it on T.V. or I would not have been able to get them in front of the sport.

    I'm just saying if you watch the tape, Metcalf leaves his feet coming down. I mean, it wasn't a Spencer Mango slam, that kid can get air born, but it was a good drill.

    I'm all for tough wrestling, I think if it had been a slam, people would be more animated about it.

    Bubba has had a comment to say about just about everything regarding Metcalf, but he hasn't said anything about a slam, and neither have his coaches. Leads me to believe they didn't feel it was a slam.

    Congratulations to him and all the Hawkeyes.

    I don't think anyone's saying that the match should have been given to Bubba, but that was without question a slam.

    I was watching it with my high school coach, and we went back a couple times and watched it over and watched it in slow motion, and Metcalf actually leaves his feet, and he drives his shoulder into the mat. A slam is a slam, you have to take your guy to the mat under control. He did not do that.

    I think it'd have been a crime if Jenkins would have stayed down, had a slam gotten called and taken the win that way, but it absolutely was a slam.
