    I am not here to come down on anyone about making this trade, but I just have to say it is very interesting.

    Last week or so I thought that if anyone other than LoSt had made that trade nobody would have said boo about it.

    1 week later he we are with the two different guys making a very lopsided trade and it's just fine(as it should be)

    Gofer explained how the move would help him and would fit into his team. That is great and also true. However, when it was explained how the trades would help ISU, nobody cared to pay attention to that.

    Gofers reasoning is excellent and of course Payton is making the right move for his team as well with picking up the clear number 1 at 184.

    However, Payton is giving up the 226th pick of the draft, and a mediocre wrestler who shouldnt AA and won't win his conference for a 2xAA who is the CLEAR number 1 and a big time bonus threat.

    LoSt has not done himself any favors with his abrasiveness and occassional arrogance. However, in the name of fairness where are they naysayers for this trade?

    The primary reason for that (at least in my case, and I like to think that my case is one of the more important ones) is that that explanation at the time wasn't coming from ISU.

    And if you disagreed with his reasoning would you decline the trade?

    I.E. if ISU said, I like Nemec and think he can win the big 10 this year. at that point the trade would be declined because thats not reasonable?

    What explanation do you need to give when you get 1 NC, and 2 finalists and get rid of a few guys who wont wrestle this year?

    Pretty lengthy debate on this one. Whatever Jensens decides, I can live with. Funny how the argument just keeps going on though even after I went to a Christmas party for 5 hours.

    I didn't disagree with his reasoning, so I'm not going to play the what if game.

    Trade is good with me, its been exactly three weeks since Gofer and Payton first dealt Askren so its within the rules to trade him back.

    I have said my piece and Jensens has made his ruling, so I'm not going to belabor the point. But I will say that this pretty much removes any moral right that anyone on this forum has of criticizing a trade of mine from here to infinity.
    Gold is an idiot.
