Thread: Metcalf's "Jerkin" Gesture?

    It's a non issue on both sides - it's the finals of the National Duals and people are allowed to show emotions. Ditto with Thorn, why harp on this stuff and make negative blanket statements about teams/schools/states/coaches etc because a wrestler showed couple seconds of excitement after winning a match?

    The thing I find most disturbing is that so many people on the Hawkeye Report used "of" when they meant "have." Other than that, an ISU/Iowa dual was heated. Water's wet, sky blue.

    If your talking about Metcalf, I hardly think he was showing excitement. More like frustration.

    I think it's kind of silly when people get worked up over an obviously less talented wrestler stalling or wrestling defensively in a match. If you're outgunned (like Mueller vs Metcalf) then slowing the match down is often the smart way to wrestle. It's when guys who are heavy favorites tone down their offense that fans should get frustrated.

    Saw it live and it was an unfortunate gesture, nothing more cringe-worthy than seeing the grandfather next to us try to work around his grandson asking why the Iowa fans around us were laughing and recreating the motion.

    I'm not gonna harp on it as it made the local news replay (they didn't address it) and was visible real quick on the video. I hated hearing about how perfect Tim Tebow was, but I think our sports superstar could take notes.

    I don't think it's that they stall so much as the fact that refs let them. The rule is there to prevent people from stalling out.

    Agreed, Zapp. It's an officiating problem.
