Thread: Will another wrestler EVER have been more vilified than...

  1. #1

    Default Will another wrestler EVER have been more vilified than...

    When McD(presumably) faces Robles in the finals.

    Think of all the factors in play:
    No team is more hated than Iowa.
    Iowa will probably need a McD win to help Iowa win the title.
    Everyone LOVES Robles(two straight years of standing ovations) and will want him to win all the more.

    How hostile/loud will the crowd be against Iowa if McD wins, and conversely how nuts will people be if Robles wins?
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Johny Hendricks is outraged that you're forgetting about his junior and senior years.

    For all that Iowa people complain about how much everyone "hates" them they also neglect the fact that they're also the largest singular fan base in the country. The 125 final may wind up one of the most polarizing matches in recent memory in terms of everyone in the crowd REALLY rooting for one participant or the other, but win or lose I can't see McDonough catching really much of anything in the way of hate.

    He's not really a hateable guy anyway.

    they definitely set the stage for it to happen. Still cant believe the returning national champ got a 2 seed. even though Robels is undefeated. Mc D's only loss comes to the #3 guy in the nation, that he has beaten twice since.

    Villified is not the right word, since McD does not envourage hatred the way someone like Hendricks did, but everyone who is not a Hawkeye will be pulling for Robles like crazy if that final happens.

    Well if Precin (or somebody else) beats McD, even the Iowa fans should be cheering for Robles

    Yeah, Hendricks is upset you'd even THINK that. Sanders stomping Robles and Thorns antics probably rank right up there too.

    Neither Sanders nor Thorn (or McDonough for that matter) would be lustily booed by a majority of the arena on the awards stand should they win NCAA's this year.

    After JH won NCAA's his junior year, he was.

    The hate (other than a minority of super belligerent Iowa fans who hate pretty much everyone I don't even know anyone who "hates" Sanders or Thorn) isn't even close.

    "No team is more hated than Iowa." Should read "No fans are more hated than Iowa". People love the wrestlers.

    "Iowa will probably need a McD win to help Iowa win the title." Fantasy land.

    "Everyone LOVES Robles(two straight years of standing ovations) and will want him to win all the more." Can't argue with that!
