    I think not. C'mon, just think of all of the great seasons had by others that this title insinuates were inferior.

    Was it a great season ? Sure. One for the ages ? I think not.
    We shall dub the young Ryan.

    I have to agree with RYou. At least statistically, you see something like a "39-1 overall record, 12 pins, seven technical falls, and nine major decisions" every year. Maybe the difference is what the statistic does not show: the level of competition, the asterisk that appears after his one loss, and his intensity, work ethic, and never quit attitude.

    D S beats him next year IMO. His attacking style will play into a healthy Schlatter next year. He and Brands should of been penalized in the Big Ten finals. It looked like he was out to tear up Dustins knee. I like somebody to be aggresive but when the whistle blows and for him to throw him on his knee off the mat was alittle chippy. D schlatter will be ready for him next year. He was banged up most of the year and hopefully he will not have the nagging knee problems he had this year.

    Well, lets see...as a sophomore he went 37-1 in one of the toughest weights in years, 28 bonus point wins, Midlands Champ, NCAA Champ, Outstanding Wrestler at NCAA's, Hodge Award. Not many years ARE better then that. The article doesn't insinuate it's the best season of all time or anything.

    Yay. I thought I would have to wait until next season to hear the "If Schlatter is healthy, he'll beat him" excuses. A ready made excuse indeed.

    So he missed a majority of the season for a built in excuse?Did you see the Big Ten finals? Up until the last few seconds I thought Schlatter was going to win. Metcalf did not control the tempo of the match like he did bubba.

    Did YOU watch the match? Schlatter controlled the ties in the first period, but after that, Metcalf controlled the tempo. Oh, and then Metcalf went and won the NCAA's while Schlatter took 7th.

    Has there been any other guys who won the NCAA's as a freshman and then never won it again? Schlatter could become the first.

    He got the late takedown to win the match. So just because he was attacking doesn't mean he was scoreing. God Iowa fans are so ignorant it pains me to have a conversation with ya. You all live in the past when in fact Iowa has gettin a beatdown this decade. We get it Gable had some great teams but Minnesota and Okie state have been the teams to beat for the last 7 or 8 years. You guys get to the top of the podium this year and you act like we are suppose to be overwhelmed. It was just acouple years ago Minnesota had the only team ever to have 10 all americans in the same year. So go blow smoke up somebody elses backside about how great the hawkeyes are. I think the gophers will be ok. The gophers will be down for a year or two but with the top ranked recruiting class this year and most likely next the Gophers will be back.
